    Buff needed to middle tier dds?

    From my mid-tier experience i have to disagree with you on one point: the lack of DDs per game. Sure, every now and then I have a game with few to no DDs in it, but these are pretty rare. I always meet a healthy amount of DDs per game, especially with all the torpedo centric missions lately. Imo 2-3 DDs per side is perfect, and this is what I get when there's no mission forcing everyone to take their torpedobote out. Cruisers on the other side are pretty rare... However I do agree on the fact that some regular detroyers in the T5-7 bracket could do with some love. I play the Germans and the Soviet at those tiers, let's break down on what I think of each: T-22 I enjoyed, surprisingly, could do with some better concealment maybe ; Gaede is meh when it comes to maneuvrability and specifically acceleration, she also eats a ton of pen damage from BBs (reeeeee) ; Maass is fine, she has strenght and weaknesses and is fun to play ; Podvoisky was unfun, can only go for the surprise arround the corner torp rush, and the guns aren't really comfortable to use either. Ends up being good at contesting caps only ; Gnevny suffers from similar problems as Podvoisky, my biggest gripe is the horrible turret traverse, also suffers a ton from uptiering ; Minsk I don't own yet, but doesn't look groundbreaking either. I should stress I don't have AFT on my commander as EM is mandatory along LS ; Isokaze is also in my port, not really enjoying it, nor am Iooking forward to Minekaze, I wouldn't mind shitty guns if the torpedoes were more comfortable ; I also own Gallant, she's nice but could do with a little something torp wise. Now onto the other lines and what I can tell from encountering them: The Pan-Asian are definitely doing (too?) good, Gadjah and Fushun are fairly strong and Jianwei is competitive ; IJN boats on the other hand look like a massive struggle, only Shiratsuyu and Fubuki seem enjoyable, buffs are needed ; US DDs are doing ok, good close range fighters, torpedoes are a bit weak at T5-6, statistics would imply small buffs are welcome. In short: -DD population is fine -Buffs are required on specific ships, but not on the class as a whole

  4. Alright, nice, just what I needed. Thanks.
  5. Hello, The official portal post about the new clan battles season is pretty confusing regarding rental ships and their commanders. So, will the commanders used on rental ships be reset (skill wise) upon their removal at the end of the season? To maximize my effectiveness in rental ships I operated quite the captain shuffle and ended up running a reskilled cruiser captain in the Grozovoi and a detroyer captain in the Zao, which I don't mind for the time being. I would be quite annoyed however if my captains ended up stuck with the wrong skills at the end of the season, hence why i need the clarification to organize my captains accordingly. Thanks in advance.

    New Game mode required

    Timegated caps is not a bad idea in my opinion. A certain game (Fractured Space) has a similar system, combining both regular caps and a central timegated cap. And it works pretty well. People first fight for the hard caps (they give points in a siilar fashion to WoWs), and then, if they have the possibility, go fight for that central cap which is unlocked after 5-10 minutes. What matters is that that cap doesn't act like a regular one, but instead gives a massive, one time boost (in the form of damage/speed buff) to the team that secured it and afterwards becomes basically useless, since it won't give out any more boosts. What the map in fractured Space looks like Something similar could be implemented into WoWs on the basis of the domination game mode. Make one of the caps (preferably a central one), become timegated and award a huge 100-200 points boost upon securing. Interesting tactical choices on when/wether to disengage and head to that cap will have to be made. However two massive problems instantly arise : It might also be grossly overpowered, a team with an early DD advantage will have it pretty easy to secure that cap and have a (too?)good chance at winnning the game. Wouldn't lemmingtraining one external cap, overwhelm it (or counter a possible ennemy lemmingtrain) and then just head to that central cap be a too easy tactic to win the game? Maybe this can be avoided with the point boost being only a tactical choice, not an you-cap-you-win choice, and the timegated cap not being a central one. All in all, whilst this is a pretty rough idea it might feature new positioning options and disengagement choices, overall bringing something fresh to the game modes. If done properly it has it's place in WoWs and I'd be up for that. tldr: domination mode with one timegated cap maybe?

    Shiflt-and-tilt option

    Besides looking nice it doesn't seem that usefull. Would even be kind of a hindrance in-game I believe. Would look good in the port free cam to make some screenshots, but I'd rather see WG work on something else.

    What you got in your Santa containers?

    Decided to go for it and buy 5 huge santa crates. What I got: -30x ouroboros flag -30x frosty camo -30x frosty camo -Hood -30x frosty camo I would initially rather have dropped Alabama/Lo Yang (already own Gallant) or some dubloons. But the Hood is a nice surprise, I believe I'll enjoy it. Camos and flags are excelent and will be of good use. Overall a good buy, I believe I got a lot for my money. Even though it is totally random and I could have only dropped rather disapointing stuff, the drop rates seem pretty fair in my opinion.

    The black friday sales

    So yeah there is now finally an article detailling the special sales we're getting for black friday. Only 15 hours late... https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/common/black-friday-discounts/ Looks like the usual good stuff we have for special event sales. But then you look at the tech tree sales and then you notice: They only discounted certain ships, because [edited]us. Honestly there are more ships not discounted than ships actually discounted. Quick check on the other server clusters...yes, Asia and NA do not have all of these restrictions on ships sales. Looks fair right? In details: Indianapolis, Kaga, Hood and Mutsu are restricted on NA and Asia. For EU, well see for yourselves: "50% Off - All Tier III-IV Ships 40% Off - Tiers V-VI (Excludes: Gallant, De Grasse, Duca d'Aosta, Mutsu, Okhotnik, October Revolution) 30% Off - Tiers VII-VIII (Excludes: Kii, Enterprise, Alabama, Hood, Kaga, Blyskawica, Indianapolis)" Alright, I could guess some of those are special event ships (Oktobra,Gallant) and some may be not on sale because they are OP (Kaga), which, to me, doesn't justify them not being on sale though. But hey, I guess WG can get away with that. But what about the other ships? Are they too recent? Is it because they are also on sale in the premium shop right now? That is in now way a justification and downright a [edited] move. Isn't the Okhotnik even not in the tree? Why WG, why? Are you afraid ships not sold in overpriced packages (the 450€ one is memes) will not bring in money? While we're at it. Seeing as how the tech tree is being shat on, I guess there's no hope for many new premiums being introduced to the tree.. Which concludes my rant...currently I'm 300% salt because I was getting hyped for some new premium ships in my port, but it's not going to happen.

    Preview: New Ships Galore!

    Hello, Do we already know wether (some of) those new ships will be introduced in their respective tech trees? Would be nice if they would since theres no KM or French Navy DD, or RM cruisers available for buying with dubs atm. Also, with the recent Halloween crates a lot of players got a pretty nice amount of dubs and with the likely sales upcoming will probably be eager to spend those dubs, and that includes me. I'd love to be able to get some of those with dubs. Please make it happen WG.

    Is the grinding time too long?

    So you'd agree with having to grind for days long trough low tiers? And besides,there'll always be morrons,and if they really like the game they'll stick with it,go up the tiers and still be noobish when reaching the higher tiers.

    Is the grinding time too long?

    You've got my point,i think the grinding time in WoWs is too damn long. Also,i'm a decent player so it's not like i'm useless in every game and chainloose. So let's compare it to WoT. Why WoT?Because i think it's the best game to compare with WoWs in terms of xp.Same devs,same style,etc. It really feels appropriate for the comparison. So, The xp required to unlock modules and ships is higher on WoWs. e.g.: T5: WoT: 15000 xp ; WoWs: 20000xp T10: WoT:220000xp ; WoWs : 2400000 xp An average WoT win will earn you ~1000 xp,in WoWs,you earn a comparable ( it even feels like less) amount of xp for a win aswell.Defeats earn roughly the same amount of xp aswell. So for the same amount of games,you get the same ammount of xp. But how long does an average battle take? 5-8 minutes for WoT and 12-15 minutes for WoWs,that's 2-3 times more. So you need 2-3 times more time to earn the same amount of xp in WoWs than in WoT,which is completely stupid given you need to earn more xp for grinding purpose. Which is too long,really. Let's face it i believe ( and many will agree) that WoT grinding is already long, i know it's to encourage people to buy gold and free tanks,it's somehow justified.But when playing WoWs it really takes ages and ages to go trough even the low tier ships. So i think there should be either an increase in the amount of xp per battle,or a decrease of the grinding xp requirement. Do you agree/disagree?What do you think of it? P.S.:I'm not comparing WoWs's economy to WoT's here because it's obviously a different system. P.S.2.: I'm no sure wether this is the right section to post this,so it might get moved.
