  1. Does this mean the EU server will be able to get the Nikolai from the crates as well? If so, what details can we gain?
  2. Stricter punishments for AFK Cv's.

    Alright, so in present day wows, the many issues surrounding CV's aside. There is no denying they are the most influential class of ships in the game. Their ability for intel, strikes, and map adaptability is unrivalled. It is therefore rather crippling when there are matches were you or the enemy's cv stand afk. While afk's are a huge problem in general there is simply no comparing a Benson to a Shokaku afk impact on the match on average. And there seems to be a bit of a higher CV afk rate in large part due to the mirrored matchmaking (Which is necessary, CV's are simply too powerful) and longer wait times. Now it is important to note that there are legitimate reasons for being AFK. Such as the internet being cut, but these number in the minority of instances. So here is my favourite suggestion so far. For cv's that go afk in illegitimate reasons. (Game can probably tell who is online and who is not) make the ship interned in port for 15 non-afk matches with regular ships. This thread is of course open to differing views and suggestions on how to deal with the issue, and if CV's who frequently go afk should be punished beyond their repair costs.

    Me: What are you doing to reduce BB overpopulation. WG: Releasing the British BB line.

    Hyperbole Hyperbole (ˈ/haɪˈpɜːrbəli/; Ancient Greek: ὑπερβολή, huperbolḗ, from ὑπέρ (hupér, “above”) and βάλλω (bállō, "I throw")) is the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech. In rhetoric, it is also sometimes known as auxesis (lit. "growth"). In poetry and oratory, it emphasizes, evokes strong feelings, and creates strong impressions. As a figure of speech, it is usually not meant to be taken literally. Source - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperbole

    Protected MM makes preferential MM look sweet in comparison. Tier IV being essentially heaven MM right now gets overpopulated, which leads to an under-population in tier V and VI which will never get their full positive worth, but can get brutal MM. Players know this so tier VII gets overpopulated and it's just misery. But no, we need to nerf IFHE for cruisers. They were actually doing reliable damage to battleships. Priorities.
  6. IFHE brutal nerf to 152/155mm cruisers

    Oh great, another indirect buff to BB's.
  7. Anyone know when the October revolution will be released in store?

  9. Makes me wonder if it could be a viable tactic to just sail up to an enemy smokescreen and fire blind.
  10. Well it's not unfounded, but not confirmed either so I will hold my breath. But come on, I liked battleships when they were essentially floating tinderboxes, but had their physical armor value fixed. It made it far more balanced than this increasingly one-sided meta. Now I get the rationale for this. It's to make the game more dynamic, fast and discourage smoke abuse. It's the same rationale to why stealth firing was removed. But now we get more BB radars and other fun with minimal consideration of the meta, and this is coming from a predominantly BB-player. Make battleships great again. Nerf their anti-torpedo warnings from spotterplanes, sonar and radar. Decrease their fire protection and still require them to be more effective up close, and then we can talk about smoke nerfs.
  11. quote -0.6.9 New Mechanic: Smoke-firing Penalty !! WARNING: We speculate that this new mechanic will work as follows. However, unveiling the actual effect requires further investigation. Now, smoke-firing will not be as pleasant as it used to be. Ships fire inside (or around) smoke screen will accelerate the dissipation of smoke. For example: Gearing's 1-click firing will reduce 0.24 (0.12×2) sec. lifetime of all smoke cloud in a radius of 630 meters. Larger caliber guns have better effect on smoke dissipating. The biggest 460mm has the basic smoke-dissipation penalty of 5.91 seconds. That is, each 1-click shot will cause 17.73 sec of smoke dissipation and one salvo will almost blow away an entire smoke screen! End quote Now, while this is just speculation. However, I really have to wonder if the people calling the shots for this are just the most incompetent BB players on the planet. Another non-BB nerf.
  12. Why do people think that the Gremyashchy is OP?

    It used to be the best ship in the game tier for tier, before the BBcopalypse where you could abuse your stealth. It just required high skill and a particular playstyle. Nowadays I find the okhotnik to be more fun. It's not a better ship by any standard, but it's fun.
  13. Questions of the Community

    Hello, very happy to have this thread up. So my questions are as follows. - This question touches on a similar question answered in the past, but I believe that since in patches there have been something of a development in the competency of ships, in particular tier III-IV. Talking about general range and mobility upgrades for the most part. Is there any plans to test or perhaps re-evaluate the protected matchmaking system since it has a negative impact on ship values tier V-VI? - Again a question that touches upon an earlier one with a spin. WOT has a tendency to release some super-rare premiums at a fairly high purchasing price. Is WOWS considering to do that with certain particular premiums? *Cough* Nikolai *cough* - If I missed this I am sorry, but will there be a mechanic to buy or even just name your own ships? If so what sort of representation will that have on the minimap, dock, ect. - Any plans for a the French DD Fantasque? If so what tier? Final question - Will the grand old lady HMS dreadnought be a tier III premium? How about the KV2 Equivalent of WOWS which is HMS Furious with the single 456mm gun? With regards - JingoJaden
  14. Will RN BB Radar be worst thing ever ??

    It's WG simply throwing away any pretence of the rock-paper-scissor model. Another victory to the BBy's.

    Tier V is presently nightmarefuel tier. You see some of the most atrocious developments for there because of the asshattery of protected matchmaking which de-facto devalues ships tier V-VI. Which is bad, because some of the most fun ships are there.
