    Torpedo Acceleration Skill For Torps With 10km+ Range?

    I meant me. Not you. It's just the English language usage. I should've said "games to see if my predictions were correct.".

    Torpedo Acceleration Skill For Torps With 10km+ Range?

    I used to have the sub 9km range with TA skill perk. Then the radar meta got it's hold, with 12km Radars being a more common place. I reverted to the standard 12km with the speed module upgrade as a side grade. Also, I load up with the 20km range option for those late night "relaxing" games to see if your predictions were correct.

    So no captains, "have no idea how you get them..", 2 million FXP, anything else? OP. If you REALLY wanted to get the ship now. You'll have to convert your accrued ship XP to FXP by using Doubloons. Which you can buy at the store. Of course, if you don't have enough ship XP convert. Then you're out of luck I think (WG I found a loop hole you forgot to exploit).

    Which forum members have you seen in random battles?

    Ah, I understand what you wrote originally. It was more of an after action report. I wasn't sure how to take my mention without the context. :) <S

    Err, I don't know what do say. The above text is confusing, to me. What are you saying about what I did in ranked?

    Well, it's quite apparent going by what some have posted here that they did not bother to read up on the follow up posts to clarify the original post. Moderators can close this as they see fit, as they do.

    Game chat hotkeys - how to adapt for better teamwork

    It's a common re-occurring theme around here, with select players that's been active on the forums. It seems that the longer these players partake, the more jaded they get. Doesn't mean that we can't forge ahead with opposite of what they bring here. I would just outright ignore them, not quote them, just pretend their posts didn't exist, and move forward with positivity.

    Hey, thanks for your constructive criticism. Refreshing.

    Lunar Containers Too Much Generous?

    With respect, it seems that you are well aware that purchasing these containers are dependent on luck. So you personally took the gamble (a chance), and bought them. Sadly you didn't get what you wanted (looking at the results). To come to the point. Yes there is. You can directly get what you want from the Premium shop. Such as Premium time, credits, doubloons, ships, etc. You don't have to spend your hard earned cash, and buy a container that is randomised. This is a fools errand, much like gambling except the house always wins. You would have a better chance at winning (at least they state the odds by law) with those scratch cards, than winning a Missouri, Belfast, Kutuzov, and Molotov from their boxes.

    Only on sundays, and around lunch? I thought it started when the school hours are over...

    It has started already from page 1...sadly.

    Hello, No, it isn't. It is of their own conclusion that they arrived at that scope. None of my words alluded that I was nor am a player that just leaves Random battles at random points, at any given time. Where does it allude to it? Reading word for word. Please look at it objectively, without prejudice. Regards,

    With due respect...few points comes to mind. Your presumption that this thread was created due to my lack of self scheduling/planning of my free time...is rather high of you to say the least. Secondly, I have not asked for your 'advice', nor sought after it via this thread. With respect, my advice is. As a moderator, one should be impartial and staying away from the discussions, unless absolutely when a moderator must interject...that's my advice to you my highness. But what do I know. I only used to be one of the Administrators of a formerly one of the larger gaming communities that ran for over 20 years, with over 10k members on a light day. Thirdly, this isn't a new game for me. I've played this game and enjoy it still for various reasons. Please do not 'teach' me about the finer nuances of this game. There is a reason why I still play this game, over others over the years. One reason being that it is not a 'twitch shooter game', ergo suited for more 'relaxed' reactions. What I do not like are the overflowing of hubris of some people of status on this forum. With respect, such as you. You have directly insinuated that: "people cannot manage their timetables" , and that "If you are not sure that you can't sit infront of your computer for around 10 to 15 mins.. (thats a generous average btw) may be you should not hit that random battle eh?" Where do you get off by presuming that I am not disciplined enough to sit for 20 minutes of my free time? I never asked for your 'advice' on how to manage my free time, or how one should manage it when playing WOWS. Just where is your highhorse statement coming from?!...No really, I would really like to know. This isn't the first time, that we disagreed on the forum here...with your boss having to butt in to PROPERLY moderate, as one should. I find this extremely over stepping, of one's role, and not even as a player. The lack of productive nor constructive criticism is so basic, it is utterly an insult to read. Finally, my original request on the post was quite frankly ignored by you. Reading your 'advice'. "If you like to discuss this (after voting), I urge you. Please do so by sticking to the topic at hand and refrain from taking it out of context by attacking the person instead."

    I can assure you, I have never intentionally dropped a game due to bad scheduling on my part. With the exception of the unexpected events sparsely thrown about over the years, and technical faults that are out of my own control (PC crashing, ISP disconnects). I also, have the same mind set when launching the client. I dedicate a time slot, then commit to it. This is not the issue. Also, do not presume that I launch into Random games without any sort of commitment or awareness; that is really insulting. The issue is that for some people, their free time is really that much shorter than others. Yes, some battle don't last the full 20 minutes. Or quite the opposite of sub 10 minute games. We have experienced this. Those examples shouldn't really be the decider of why the cut off is at 20 minutes. The game is designed that way. For that length of time. Or better yet, to accommodate for that time limit. If, and I mean a huge "if". Lesta decided to shorten (alter) the battle times (specifically "Random" mode). They won't just butcher the map to be smaller and call it a day. They will alter the map sizes, the conditions, the length of the Radars, Hydros, hard spottings ranges, concealment ranges, etc, etc. Everything would be scaled down. ( It could even be just the number of players per side change as well. Actually, this may be the easiest and the most effective option yet. An 8 vs 8 game, or less than 10 players per side. Yes, I think I like this option far better...which doesn't fit for this thread. ) As for your poll suggestions, thank you. However, this is a poll. Not "why" nor a philosophy lecture. Quite simply, if you see no options that you do not like. You don't have to partake. Just like the WG surveys that you ignore (at times surely), or don't criticise over their formatting.
