    Is the playerbase rewarded too much?

    Honestly, it's part of the reasons why I ditched the game quite a while ago now. The tl;dr
  2. I've practically stopped playing roughly a good year ago. I still have fond memories off the game and did not entirely write it off, nor did one day I just "ragequit" and uninstalled it like a furious ten year old. I just stopped caring - in a way I mirrored WG's behaviour. Yet, from time to time I've read the forums, checked the news, looking for a reason to jump back in. Ever since this "relationship" grew cold and I just gradually got bored and fed up with it, not a single news, bullet point, forum post, a word on a napkin wanted me to come back. Not a single one. Last thing I kind of tried out in Training Room at least was the CV rework, ever since that what even happened, the "cool" soviet ships, the PR-fiasco, the ""european"" tree, VU slapped into T5, a whole line of completely uninspired, gimmicky, sometimes powercreeping and meaningless very high tier premium ships, I'm not up-to-date, but you catch my drift. I am, or rather was a PvE player. WG explicitely and officially said, that (any form of) PvE does not matter (anymore), and fairly strongly implied that apart from the end-game tiers, PvP stuff also does not matter. It's a shame, back in the day I sometimes accused them of not having much of a clear plan for the game apart from the financial one (see pushing the Graf Zeppelin out for Gamescom iirc for example), but now it almost look like they do have a plan, and it's a daunting one. Yet, unlike my friend who I foolishly convinced to install the game and play it together, am not hot-headed of nature, regretting the investments, all the money I shelled out for WG. I'm just sad that I have my decent little account, and I see less and less reason to even downloading the game once again. And that's just the game itself, not even the communication or the decisions behind it. Oh well.

    Low tier games and missions

    That's actually a "fun", or at least semi-interesting thought, I have some myself as well. Not that I ever thought about a refund for anything, but still. "We are selling assets for an area of the gameplay we officially don't give a sh*t about." Then again, it's a very clear statement that puts new players to where they belong as well.
  4. "Stop whining?" Meh, I first went with the "stop paying" approach, then took a bit further. But it's a good idea, next time WG pulls a Puerto Rico or a GZ or something, I'll just ask people to stop whining. I can also understand of course, why the guy with the "SWE" in the nick takes all these as de facto personal attacks. Still, it's unfortunate. Although maybe that's not the best word for it.
  5. So, apparently... WG, regarding the RU line: "Let's fill up the roster with paper ships!" WG, regarding the Pan-Asia line: "Just about not a single one was actually built there, no problem!" WG, regarding the Pan--EU line: "Weell, yeah, but you see, those would be paper ships and not natively built. Unacceptable." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I personally have zero problem with a swedish line, go for it, hell, ditch the two low-tiers and go all-out Sweden. Completely fine. What did left a bad taste in my mouth is the "Your argument is invalid, there are pan-european ships in the game"-mentalty. Uh-uh, no. About consistency - sounds excellent on paper and it was completely a credible concern back in when, 2016, 2017? Now, since we live in the Age of Gimmicks and what a random ship does is just about completely up to WG anyways, especially if the "paper ship"-part is true, it really, really doesn't matter.
  6. There are less people?! Sh*t, I might pick up the game again!

    Viribus Unitis is alive

    Examining this in regards to the S.M.S. Szent István... ...but I'm still not buying the ship in WoWs, Wargaming. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Viribus Unitis is alive

    Well, yes, but you see, comrade, higher tier, more Rubels!

    Viribus Unitis is alive

    Never thought I'd not buy this shp the moment it hits the game, but here we go. Funny thing is, it has to do less with the actual ship and more with the state of the game overall I think. I've spent quite a metric ton of money on the game in the past (from Kaga to Mikasa), but now I can't really explain to myself why should this sub-20 Eur be a worthwhile investment. ...and looking at the papership-parade, this beauty and Yahagi was just about the only two premium ship left I gave a sh*t about. I think I'll wait until the ship will get onto the techtree for sale for doubloons. If this never happpens, well, then I guess I'm sh*t out of luck. Or just hope that Tegetthoff will get onto the silver European line one day, and get shafted for free.

    Opinions on an accidental friendly torp

    What you have to understand I think that even if the guy seemed to "sail right into it", you can't reasonably expect him to dance however you sing. Let me explain simply, why. Imagine this: You are sitting in a big, bad BB, getting focused, as is your task. Your angle is acceptable, stuff is under control, armor is tanking. ...and then some "friendly" torpedoes are arriving. Let's say slowing down won't solve the situation, full rudder will. Now, here is the problem: If you sail "right into the torpedoes", the DD will know HE is the reason you are dead. If you turn and get raped with your now open broadside, the DD will never realize he's STILL the reason you are dead, but maybe he'll add "noob" in the chat, to crown the moment. This is the exact reason why I am reacting to "friendly" torps when I have the means, but when I have to choose between getting TK'd or getting killed because of a - to quote you - "muppet" constrained my movement, I go for the former. Unfortunately, I have no reason to think they'll learn from this...
  11. Ah, a familiar name. Man... :\ Not that I am walking in a different shoe, I did play barely a couple battles since... I don't even know, autumn? Nothig dramatic, I simply got bored of the constant shenanigans and slowly but steadily started to do other things with my time. I still follow the news, and this made me laughing. I understand that this company is a different one than the World of Tanks branch, but was not a single intern available to run over and ask "Hey guys, why did you not sell T9 premiums, T10 permanent camos and such for short-term profit?" But even the company itself, it's like they perma-delete their entire data and execute and re-hire their staff in a cyclic fashion, so four years of expertise in developing the same exact game goes null and void. Still, I owe gratitude to WoWs, they got me deeper into naval history, and they are one of the main reason I am running a Rule the Waves 2 campaign now instead of playing wows. So, no hard feelings. Just awe and wondering.

    Coop Mode

    This "hard" mode isn't even that stupid of an idea now that I think about it. The usual answer would be "dividing the playerbase is problematic because of the longer queue times", which could be a valid problem. So, don't increase bot numbers, but decrease player numbers, say, to 4 vs 8-10. Bam, matches start instantly, you got your "hard" mode where God forbid even a Colorado would have the opportunity to do something, and the mode wouldn't eat up a lot of players.

    North Carolina citadel [edited]

    I know, I know, one should not dwell in the past, but... NC does not have a high citadel. Most new ships have too low.

    Your favorite cruiser: Tier for tier

    T2: Albany (Boy, was she an underdog back in the time...! Still, a cutie.) T3: Bogatyr (If one day someone starts to ask the hard question "Hold on, are OP ships only a thing in hight tier?", she's screwed.) T4: Yubari (Can't remember much if this tier, but weeaboism tanks through the day, just to be sure.) T5: Furutaka (Metas come and go, but the schlong stays strong.) T6: (okay, I legitimately have to start up the game at this point to even check which ships are here... man, sometimes I miss the fun of two-nation-days) My brain says Leander. My heart says Pensacola. RIP Cleveboi. T7: Myoko. (The girl who gets lost in the middle of the bell curve until you take her into bed, then suddenly...) Okay, I admit, had Atlanta not lost her AA considerably.... T8: Atago. (Looks good, does good, tastes good.) T9: Ibu... okay, hold on, I'm not laughing. Ibuki. (Yes, I know, but that's all I got.) T10: Salem (Little do I know, but my main man says she's fine.)
