  1. ST, new unique commander

    Good shout! Given the legend of the Emden and it's resourceful crew, maybe the special skills could involve camouflage, and damage control. Another commander to be considered might be Hans Langsdorff of the Graf Spee.
  2. Perhaps Wargaming announced it that way because they are feeling "re-morse" over the delay of the T61. ..err ..... I'll get my coat .... it's OK...I know my own way out.
  3. Santa boxes bug

    I had the same problem and raised a ticket. Sorry, Grif, but according to the explanation provided by Wargaming Support, YOU ARE THE ONE WHO DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THE RULES. The big issue here is that the player base (In North America at least) were told that the container contents were calculated in one way....but the reality is different. WHAT WE WERE TOLD "Radar_X" (Wargamin Adminstrator) told the official North American Forum on Tuesday 19th December 2017 that the contents of a container are determined when they are OPENED - and NOT WHEN THEY ARE BOUGHT. Please see post #12 here: https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/145351-santa-crate-eve-i-cant-take-it/ "The crates will operate differently this year based on feedback from last year and contents are determined when you open them. " WHAT SUPPORT SAY 1) The contents of a container are determined WHEN THEY ARE BOUGHT (Which is how they have always worked) 2) The working list of ships that you may get (and may be used as substitutes) is the long list of ships provided on the rules webpage (Not just those in legion containers) The list of ships WHAT HAPPENED IN MY CASE 1) I already had the "De Grasse" - but I did not know this! I was awarded the ship as a "Welcome Back" gift while I was OFFLINE FROM THE GAME. 2) During this time I bought some Santa Boxes then logged on to the game 3) When the game started, messages told me that I had won all sorts of things from nice (Doubloons, Gold, XP) to booby prizes such as "Huange" and "De Grasse" (*) 4) The I opened the Santa Boxes 5) One of the boxes contained a "De Grasse", so I got gold instead. I don't need gold. I've got thousands of it. I would have preferred an alternate ship...but hey ho ....and I got a 10 point captain for the French BB or DD lines when they arrive. 6) If the content of the boxes had been calculated at the time that it was opened - as "Radar_X" said that it would be - then I would have received an alternate ship. 7) I do not think that "Radar_X" was lying, but he was misinformed.....and by extension he unwittingly misinformed the community. (*) I say this because I don't like the French cruiser line in game. In real life I regard France as a great country with a proud naval tradition, of course.
  4. New Detection Smybol

    ...and obviously something which could not have been picked up in testing before release. Oh no. (/sarcasm)
  5. @cherry2blost Thank You, and a Happy Christmas to you and your clan. I don't know what I did to please them but Wargaming showered me with gifts this Christmas and I was lucky with the Santa boxes. Just resuming playing maybe?
  6. Thanks for Hamburg and free Captain skill resets

    I really liked the look of the port of Hamburg in the preview. I was worried that I might be disappointed when the port actually arrived in game. But no - it's great! It is my home port now. It would take something really fantastic to make me change.
  7. What you got in your Santa containers?

    Usually Toby, yes that is what happens - but not for the Santa Legion Event. The rules explicitly say otherwise. You are only supposed to get doubloons if they cannot find a ship to give you that you don't already have. Check out full details here: https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/special/secret-santa-2/ QUOTE 1) Boxes cannot be refunded after opening. 2) If you "roll" a ship that is already in your Port, another ship will be reselected from the list of the ships (see above). These are ships that can be found in Supercontainers. You will receive a ship found in a Supercontainer instead of the Legion container, a Port slot, and Commander with 10 skill points. 3) If you "roll" a ship that is already in your Port and you have already received all ships available in the Legion containers, a Santa Claus Legion container will be displayed on the container ship. After opening this container, you will see the “rolled” ship, but it will not be added to your Port. Instead, you will get the amount of Doubloons that is equal to the cost of the ship, a slot, and a Commander with 10 skill points. END-QUOTE
  8. What you got in your Santa containers?

    Since you are an experienced player and forum poster I respect your opinion. *SALUTE* However, I couldn't even make the highly-rated "Kongo" work (or "Fuso" and "Nagato" for that matter). There are too many other projects that need my time, so "Kii" goes into the "Reserve - Highly unlikely to ever be played" Fleet, I'm afraid. It's sad, because in real life I have tremendous respect and admiration for modern Japan. I console myself that it's only an arcade game after all.
  9. What you got in your Santa containers?

    Even so, I already had the ship before I opened ANY containers. I did not get it from a container in the first place. And the rules DO SAY that you won't get duplicates. See also Rule 3. 3) If you "roll" a ship that is already in your Port and you have already received all ships available in the Legion containers, a Santa Claus Legion container will be displayed on the container ship. After opening this container, you will see the “rolled” ship, but it will not be added to your Port. Instead, you will get the amount of Doubloons that is equal to the cost of the ship, a slot, and a Commander with 10 skill points. Note that part: "you have already received all ships available in the Legion containers"
  10. What you got in your Santa containers?

    Overall, a good result so I am happy. I did find a bug though! THE GOOD 4000 Gold 180 days Premium 210 x Frosty Fir Tree Camo 75 x Type 59 Camo 30 x Dragon Flags THE BAD Ships: 3 and a half Kii (Don't like IJN BBs, but will raise a lot of cash when I sell it) Perth ( Very good ship I am told, but don't have the time to play ships without a single proper tree) Huanghe ( I suppose that they have to give this POS away) De Grasse (Nice - but already had it) THE BUG (Support ticket raised) For the "De Grasse" I was awarded gold instead (3850 units) and a 10 point captain. According to the rules of the Santa Claus legion event (see https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/special/secret-santa-2/) this SHOULD NOT HAPPEN. QUOTE 2) If you "roll" a ship that is already in your Port, another ship will be reselected from the list of the ships (see above). These are ships that can be found in Supercontainers. You will receive a ship found in a Supercontainer instead of the Legion container, a Port slot, and Commander with 10 skill points. END-QUOTE There were several ships in that list which I do NOT HAVE and should have been awarded instead. In particular, for example, the "USS Kidd."
  11. But if you CAN do weeks 1-4, but CANNOT do week 5...then you are screwed. Like me! Why do Wargaming have to put time locks on these things at the very time of year when "real life" intervenes the most?
  12. Christmas sales?

    But the port was Hamburg (*) - so kind of appropriate, no? (*) Only one more day of waiting for Hamburg - best port yet IMHO.
  13. how long can you play? yamamoto: Campaign

    Yep! Permanent campaigns are "here to stay".
  14. Suggestions thread

    +1 Great idea because it would give people the desire to play more games (which is exactly what Wargaming want to achieve)
  15. New Campaigns: till January 17th

    The Bad News: Due to real life commitments I will not be able to play WoWS for some of part 4 and all of part 5 (the final part). Therefore I will be unable to "win" the Duke of York. The Good News: After reading the review of LittleWhiteMouse, the Duke of York does not appeal to me anyway. Especially since I have KGV, Nelson & Hood anyway. The Extremely Good news: With the final goal unachievable, this persuades me to spend more time with my family instead of playing a "Game about battleships". In my case, at least, Wargaming have shot themselves in the foot by insisting on weekly staggered missions.
