    Günther Lütjens als deutscher legendärer Kapitän

    "Dispute" rechtfertigen keinen Krieg. Und wer den angefangen hat, steht nun einmal nicht zur Diskussion. Es geht ja eben darum, NICHT zu Kain und Abel zurückzugehen. Deswegen ist es auch egal, ob vor dem japanischen Angriff irgendwelche Sanktionen verabschiedet wurden. Diese waren 1. gerechtfertigt und haben 2. keine agressive Reaktion gerechtfertigt. Unter keinen Umständen. Da braucht man nicht mit "Naja, die Japaner waren halt so" argumentieren und so tun, als ob es das jetzt irgendwie besser macht. Letzteres ist ein gutes Beispiel der Schwäche des Völkerrechts. Letztlich ist die westliche und russische Beteiligung am Konflikt in Syrien in manchen Aspekten problematisch, allerdings letztlich gedeckt durch die UN-Resolution 2249, der auch Syrien zugestimmt hat (auch wenn das von unseren russischen Freunden und ihren bezahlten Angestellten im Internet eher selten erwähnt wird). Interessant ist aber die Frage, ob den "der Staat" noch eine Einwilligung hat, bzw. ob das Assad-Regime völkerrechtlich noch eine legitime Regierung ist. Darüber ließe ich trefflich streiten, letztlich ist hier aber das Problem, dass es eben keine bindenden Regelungen gibt und Russland alle diesbezüglichen Regelungen zu ungunsten der Machthaber in Damaskus einseitig blockieren kann. Hier liegt das Scheitern der aktuellen Ordnung des Völkerrechts begründet.

    Das ich den Tag noch erlebe, wo in einem deutschen Forum die japanische Beteiligung am zweiten Weltkrieg verteidigt wird. Na, dann erzähl mir doch mal, wo China und Korea (welches im übrigens bereits seit 1910 unter japanischer Kontrolle stand) Japan zum Krieg gezwungen haben. Abgesehen davon war Golfkrieg von 2003 tatsächlich in einer ziemlichen Grauzone. In Syrien ist allerdings niemand einmarschiert, das zieht nicht.

    Buff british cruisers allready!

    Everyone here seems to have a reading comprehension problem here according to you. Interesting. I might remind you of one of your posts in this thread: So yes, you talked about basically all the RNCL in this thread. And you are the one who says that Neptune needs a buff, not me. I never said it's a l2p issue, I just said it becomes one if you honestly think your performance in them is insufficient. And yes, you got to exactly your point: even your personal experience with her should tell you she's just fine. Thanks for making my point. And no, I don't need your help, thanks. Vice versa though, I really think I could show you a few tricks that would greatly improve your gameplay. Edit: you don't manage 75% in Neptune. Not that it really matters, just FYI.

    Not really, no. Your ad-hominem argurments and your general style don't make you an appealing partner to have a discussion with, to be quite frank. And no, you were talking about a lot of ships here, from Leander to Minotaur, really. And your recent statistics do not show any drop in perfomance for any of the RNCL. If you think they are insufficient, I would recommend you to work on your gameplay first.

    "Let's buff everything that doesn't single-handedly can win games on every occasion!" Let's just get this out first: I hate this line of thinking. This community is the single biggest reason fo the power creep this game has experienced, because everything that performs at the lower end of the expected stat corridor is instantly labelled as "underpowered". Anyway, this thread is about as bad as I imagined it to be when I glanced at the headline. None of the ships in this line need a buff. Yes, some have a high skill floor and average players will naturally struggle, but that's bound to happen sometimes when you have a game where not all the ships are absolutely the same. And yes, some aren't exactly stellar. Neptune maybe could do with a small buff to smoke firing detectability. But overall? Hell no. Leander and Fiji are amongst the strongest cruisers in the game, Minotaur is a blast and even Edindburgh isn't really a bad ship, but simply suffers from the terrible MM it faces as a T8. Also, @ForlornSailor, since you are one of the biggest and....most unreasonable represantatives of the "Buff the RNCL" crowd here, I hate to point it out, but you have brought up personal stats here: they are, for you, performing as they should. At all tiers, looking at your stats, they match or outperform your results in other cruisers at the same tier. That points towards them being reasonably balanced. If you think they are underperfoming, it's not because of them, but because of you.

    Timing of Clan Battle Seasons

    So we would see ranked seasons during the holidays then and people would complain as well. Really nothing WG can win here so I‘m absolutely fine with how it is. I have also heard there’s people who have got more time during the holidays, what’s with them?

    Timing of Clan Battle Seasons

    All dates will always be onconvinient for some people. What we are seeing is simply a schedule with 2-3 months between seasons and I don't think there's anyting wrong with it. What'S the alternative? Playing less seasons? Amazing idea.
  8. Wtf how do people have so much free XP lying around? Don't you actually use it or what?

    Top tier matches don't feel like ships anymore

    1) No 2) See 1 3) See 1 Because "being in open water for any length of time" is not a problem and not a mistake by default. A lot of ships ONLY really work if you do exactly that, like Zao, Henri, Hindenburg and others. The mistake people make is a severe lack of situational awareness in 90% of situations. Because they can't admit that this is the problem, they blame game mechanics. May not be a popular opinion, but that's my opinion.

    Which forum members have you seen in random battles?

    Hadn't played Budjonny in two years and simply forgot to activate hydro, which lost us the match ... yeah. Not my proudest moment. You are the only European team to beat us so far by the way, and only one of two in general ;)

    No. The problem is that large parts of this playerbase are way, way worse at playing the actual game than they think they are and lobby to bring game mechanics in line with their subjective feelings about how everything should work.

    I actually do like the suggestion with the increased accuracy on slow targets, but reducing citadel damage....citadels already have become ridicoulusly uncommon and have been nerfed to hell. Mistakes need to be punishable and we are already on the brink with that.

    Wasn't even my last game, your team was collapsing too fast....

    Was it a win? Not sure anymore. As one can see in my signature, the the first three days of this week have been a bit of a mixed experience......

    Stalingrad at KOTS?

    You misunderstood me there. I have huge objections re: battleships introduced as cruisers, but I'm not arguing against this ship because it is OP but rather because it's only available to a select group of players and goes far beyond the usual grind. Because, quite frankly, comparing a two week grind to a 18 months grind like Dced did is not that smart. The gamemode where it will really be OP is Clanwars, not KotS or randoms.... Also, lookin at the stats here is pointless. The sample is heavily skewed towards the higher end of skill in the playerbase, as only those players are playing it. Honestly, a winrate below 65% would be surprising giving the players playing it. That's pretty basic mathematics.
