    freeXP ships -- some news?

    That would be wonderful.
  2. Interesting tidbit: the fact Alaska's ingame description lists "ships in a series: 3" instead of the 2 actually finished suggests WG have reserved the last of those names for USS Hawaii (CB-3). Speaking of which, I wonder if there were any Italian 'supercruiser' proposals they'll try to shoehorn into the game for their revenue stream...

    Tired of very limited rotation Operations

    The main thing I want is to be able to re-earn the rewards each time the operations cycle back in as the main one. If they feel the need to lower the rewards because of that, I don't care, I just want a reason to come back to operations I've five-starred.

    freeXP ships -- some news?

    I'd like some more cheaper lower tier FXP ships like Nelson. Tone has been languishing in the game files for 3-4 years now.

    EU server issues compensation - 11/07/2019

    I didn't mean to say it wasn't.

    French Destroyers Event: the Full Guide

    Does anyone actually care about early access?

    I knew I was forgetting one of the pew pew cruisers.

    Bombardment of Hitachi


    Has a naval bombardment ever lead to damage that wasn't less than expected?

    Atlanta/Colbert/Smolensk with IFHE.

    Belle époque collection

    Like Klopirat, I can't select the Belle Époque collection for regular containers. It simply isn't a 'permanent' collection. Damn shame. I want the Prussian flag. I played most days at the time it was active, so I can only guess there are a lot of players with 1-4 items still missing from it.

    Fix the the camera to the bow

    There is a setting to disable battery views entirely, so you always aim from the centre of your ship. I've always used this, but it can disadvantage you a bit when moving around islands at close quarters (but these make up <1% of the shots I take so whatever). If there's anything that can make your view remember what battery you had selected, it'll be a mod. There's a mod section on this forum; try a few searches there. Also, press shift to zoom in/out and skip the battery view part entirely. Mousewheeling takes forever, far longer than the disruption you experience from viewing from the wrong battery.

    Texas nerfed hard

    I remember a particular DD main whom did just quietly leave when that happened. If you actually track the persons making such promises you may be surprised.

    EU server issues compensation - 11/07/2019

    The server issue apparently prevented people from playing during this time, so you should actually be giving the compensation to those whom logged in but were not able to enter a battle during this time.
  15. As far as fun itself goes, it's entirely subjective and goes both ways — I'm pretty sure bad players don't like getting stomped or having allies that "camp too much" or 'steal' kills or whatever. I would agree the ethical onus is on them not to poison the Ranked mode, but for the caveat that properly competitive play is what clan battles are for. Ranked is for all intents and purposes just another event like the current Savage Battle thing; it isn't actually presented by the game itself to players as something to enter with a competitive mindset, it's just a 'small randoms' mode where they get extra flags and stuff for grinding it... just like any other event. Considering this I would advise against entering Ranked with expectations from your team.
