  1. That one game mechanic that ALWAYS frustrates the hell out of me?? Detonation! Well today it happened, and it was a real kick in the balls too. Happily closing in on a Hiryu in my Kamikaze R, when a single secondary shell from the Hiryu detonated me!! I mean come on WG...really?. I couldn't do anything but stare at the screen, then after it sank in(pardon the pun), I simply exited the battle and then the game. I`ve had my wrist slapped before for commenting on WG employees making dubious design choices etc.......but this just utter B******S!!!! When I detonate other players I apologise to them because I hate it when it happens to me. *Edited
  2. I too received that same email, what form the compensation took was not important to me....what was important? WG admitted a mistake and compensated for it. And I didn't even make a complaint, how easy would it have been for WG to just ignore the technical issue? Its easy to give WG a hard time, I have joined in on WG bashing at times....now I shall join in on this WG praising too.
  3. My impression so far? Guns troll you far more than they ever will the enemy, and the shells themselves? really inconsistent...over pens, shatters and bounces happen a lot more than I expected and the occasional good salvo that actually does more than 8k and if you have been a really good little sailor then you may even get to citadel the enemy ;). The ship herself is fine, though with such large super structure the enemy doesn't really care if your citadel is hard to get too, they just hit you in the super structure instead.....still does enough damage to make you reconsider getting too close(less than 9-10km). Over all she is a good ship, pretty good balancing and for me at least fun to play. She certainly has problems with the shells, so maybe a tiny tweak and I do mean tiny then she will be just where she should be. And as to the bundle pricing and staggering? WG have been a bit naughty there, still I paid the money over within seconds of it being released...so I cant say too much against that. Would I recommend others to buy the top price bundle? To be honest yes and no, it is expensive, but I`m British and have read stories of naval battles since I was a kid and HMS Hood is a name that pretty much everyone has heard of so I didn't hesitate emptying my wallet...it boils down to how much the name means to you, just as Tirpitz, Bismarck and Scharnhorst are also great names in naval history the value of owning and sailing of these ladies of the sea is personal to each and every one of us. And yes I have all four of the ships I have named.
  4. Ships armour is utter garbage, with just 14km range and up against T7 & T8 angling is worthless. Why am I surprised? well I`m not...it`s another typical T6 cruiser with worthless armour. I can see the faces on the enemy teams when they see this thing on the team list...big grins all round!
  5. Well now, whatever the new skills may or may not bring to the game one thing is for certain.......camping at the back has become worse. And its not just BB`s either, everyone is afraid of being the front man/girl. Just had a game in the Fuso, had a sudden rush of crapto the brain and thought"I know, i`ll push through the middle, that`ll help my team with B cap and also split the enemy forces into two groups" and after I was focused down by 7 ships I took a look around and guess what??? The closest battleship to me was 13.2km away, the closest cruiser was 8.9km and destroyers? well one poor soul was 1.8km away though he could do nothing to help. I`m tired of my battles being decided by camping and long range sniping until enough ships been sunk to allow the "brave ones" to start pushing up, it`s tedious in the extreme. Although I have been playing since closed beta, and have many many hours and far too much money invested I feel the game has become steadily worse with every update. Balancing has become a joke, how can there be balance when few if any people play carriers? The list of issues is long and varied, with arguments for and against each of them, but for me it boils down to one thing.....the "fun" has slowly been drained away. It would appear that WG either don`t care, or don`t care that the player base is becoming more vocal of their displeasure at the direction the game is taking. I feel its time for me to also adopt this attitude and as a result I will still play, but by a vastly reduced number of games per week. WoWs had such potential, but constant tinkering "balancing" (not for the better either) has slowly but surely taken the game to a place that is just no longer enjoyable. I am not a whining noob that`s played 200 hundred games and cant get to grips with the mechanics or tactics....I have played over 5k games since closed beta and have had the unenviable pleasure of seeing the slow decline of the game. I have played all classes though not so many in carriers, so I feel I can say I have a fairly good idea of what I am talking about( and no I am not claiming to be a bloody expert). Well, I`m off to play games that are not WoWs...and I have quite a few to choose from, funny thing is I don`t think I`ll miss WoWs that much...though I will still keep my eye on the game, you never know, WG may see the light and WoWs will be great again!!
  6. Had enough, so uninstalling and reinstalling in the "hope" it will force the update. If doesn't work then WG will have lost a customer that has spent a large amount of money with them, wondering what, if anything, that they would say to me about this abysmally bad update service.
  7. ​Have no problems with NA account, also streaming from YouTube no problem playing diablo 3 or The Division.....doubt a problem my end. Although I`m no techno genius, so any advice is welcome. Edit: the update service thingy now says "unable to connect to update service", if this the issue then how in the name of all that's holy do I "fix" it??
  8. So its almost 1pm and the update service is STILL unavailable. My NA account?, patched and working fine. Yet my EU account which is my main, unavailable!!! Game refuses to auto update, so I tried to manually update it....."Update service unavailable", seriously WG? How many more times are you guys going to screw up?? I couldn't be any more unimpressed if I tried, by the way this the "extremely" polite version.....otherwise I`d be looking at more naughty points. Sort it out, 7 hours after patch went live and still cant play. Wouldn't mind quite so much if WG would admit to a problem with the update service, honestly......how hard is it too admit to a mistake??
  9. hot fix? bugs? Hmmm, I would settle for the damn patch to be able to download.....is that too much to ask?? Its 12 o`clock, that's over 6 hours since the patch was released and the servers were supposed to come back online. Personally, I think that is unacceptable...especially as I have seen nothing from WG about any problems...unless of course I`m blind and not seen it on the website...in which case.....someone point me to it.
  10. Still unavailable, decided to go on my NA account and everything is peachy. Guess what this means?? WG EU has managed to screw up the patching process......maybe they want to screw up every aspect of the game as some kind of bet amongst themselves! Once they have done that they get an achievement. Oh and to the WG staff member that may or may not read this........ITS A SARCASTIC JOKE!!!!! No need to batter me with the naughty stick!
  11. Unable to start patching, update service unavailable!! Well done WG, another balls up. 20 minutes later and still unavailable, anyone would think WG don't want me to play
  12. ​The point is that if you have the skill you can locate and be located as the closest ship, however if you do not take the skill you cannot be located as the closest ship. You have to choose to have the advantage of knowing roughly where the closest ship is as well as the disadvantage that the enemy can also locate you as the closest ship. Gives you the choice, and choice is good!!
  13. How about this for a solution? RDF works by sending out a "radio signal" to find the nearest ship, but what if it only works on ships that are also using RDF ? Let me explain, for RDF to work with any real sense it needs to "send and receive" a radio signal to show a general direction to the nearest ship.....if the nearest ship is using RDF then it will be sending out a signal that can be detected...but if that ship is NOT using RDF and NOT sending out a signal then it cannot be "detected" by RDF. This gives a captain a simple choice, take the RDF skill and have an advantage in that you have a good idea where the closest ship is and the disadvantage that someone else using RDF will also know where you are.....by not taking the RDF skill you remove the possibility of being located because you are not "pinging" for the closest enemy and are "invisible" to RDF. No drastic changes for WG to rush through, and the players get the choice of whether or not RDF helps/hadicaps them. Now if only WG actually reads this and says to themselves "f**k me guys this is bloody brilliant, why did we not think of this??". We can but hope....
  14. Has anyone seen what`s in the NA shop? Just go look at what ships and the deals they have to see just how f****d we are in EU. WG EU should be ashamed of themselves, absolute disgrace.....so glad I`ve started a NA account, just a shame about all the premium ships on the EU server I shall have to leave behind.
  15. WG really dont like the EU do they? Well Wg feel free to ban me for another 7 days and put naughty points on my profile...I dont care. WG, you really are taking the piss now....NA get free camos and ships in the Santa Convoy missions as well as other stuff.....we get [edited]ALL for free!!!!! I hope whoever made that decision has a lovely christmas, preferably with a 9ft christmas tree shoved up their arse complete with baubles, tinsel and a fairy on top.......then they will know how the entire EU community feels. Thnx WG, you gon dun it agin!!
