    eu server offline???

    Once, just once, it would be great if they could get the server back up by the advertised time.

    Announcing SKIPPER

    Pathetic. Might be slightly funny if: a) it were posted on the correct day b) matchmaking wasn't such a joke

    How to fix CV mess - a hybrid approach

    I gave the new CV gameplay a try and certainly at lower tiers it's nearly impossible to do a significant amount of damage. A new meta of CV sniping seems to be emerging too. DDs are ignoring caps and sneaking around the map to kill the CV. Something the CV is utterly powerless to stop. I sold the CVs again as I was really just trying them out of curiosity but I am now firmly convinced that the best thing WG could do is remove them entirely.
  5. [PORT] Poitatoes Of Random Transcendencies Who are we? A group of friendly, capable and socially oriented players looking to improve our gameplay. We are currently sitting somewhere around the middle of Storm League in Clan Battles. The clan is made up of around 35 players from all around the World, including UK, Germany, Netherlands, France, Norway, Italy, Switzerland and more, with ages ranging from 20 to 60 years. Communication is in English. We love to play in divisions and are casually competitive. We like to win of course but it's more important to play well, learn, have fun and remain polite. The clan is focused around our Discord channel as the primary social and organisational tool. We offer a friendly, sociable atmosphere, a rapidly expanding clan base with in-game bonuses for members, including fully upgraded steel and coal ports, and a place to improve your gameplay and help others improve theirs. Who are you? All applications will be reviewed on an individual basis. We firmly believe that there is no definitive list of criteria that will define your suitability and all prospective members undergo a trial period, however as a general guide we do look for the following attributes: A sense of humour A love of sausages The ability to communicate in English At least 1000 random battles played A win rate of 50% and one tier 8 ship Eighteen years of age or over A sense of humour Willingness to participate in clan banter on discord The use of a headset with microphone A desire to improve, to be helped and help others as appropriate Availability to participate in division play and Clan Battles Last but not least, a sense of humour. If all this sounds interesting, look us up in game.

    Ship you love. That everyone else hates

    I enjoy playing Emerald. Sure, the guns are a bit meh, but if you can get into the right position the 4x3 torps can wreak havoc!

    Prinz Eugen in my Port. Why?

    Well, I stopped playing back in December 2017 when you pulled this exact same stunt by giving Giulio Cesare and a load of other goodies with a total cash value close to €100 out for free to people who hadn't been playing. In 2017 I spent over €400 playing your game and consider this to be a large sum to spend on a single game in a year, so having now stopped you can consider that approximately €165 euros of my money you haven't had as a direct result of your marketing campaign. If I ever do come back to playing WoWs I can assure you It will be on a 100% free to play basis.
  9. Thanks for your response MrConway. I find it totally unacceptable though. Whilst I understand your points about "free" stuff being awarded to people playing the game, those items tend to be for the top few percent who can dedicate hours and hours of play at moments determined by WG. For the people who can play perhaps 2 or 3 random battles per evening, or have a family and can hardly play at all over Christmas these rewards are largely out of reach. So the free goodies are available to hard core grinders with nothing better to do in life or alternatively to people who haven't played in months simply for doing nothing. Also, the guys who play PvE because they don't like PvP are not going to suddenly start playing PvP because you gave them the freebies. They play PvE because they hate PvP. That's not going to change, and especially not now you've given them nice rewards for doing so. I quoted you on one issue on which you are very much mistaken. I do not depend on Wargaming in any way shape or form. I am a customer. One who has now stopped playing the game. Maybe in a few months you might be able to entice me back. There are plenty of game developers out there who will be glad of a chunk of my disposable income.
  10. Much as I would like to believe the opposite Blixies I fear that you have misread the situation. This looks to me to be a classic case of support not reading your email properly, and or, not understanding your complaint and then just sending you a standard cookie cutter reply. I'm pretty sure your support person diligently scanned over the first three words of your email, thought "ah yes, I know what this is about" and sent the canned response that goes out to people who received an email about getting the gifts but didn't receive them yet. I wouldn't take that reply as a guarantee that you will get the gifts unless you have already received an email promising them. I hope I'm wrong.
  11. Indeed. I myself have managed to justify the purchase of just three premium ships this year. Those, along with premium account, a few doubloons for respecs, some FreeXP and a few Santa gifts for clan mates have cost me about £250. Despite this seeming like a bare minimum expenditure to play the game comfortably, at the same time it seems like a massive sum to spend on one computer game in a year. Having waited for the Cesare to go on sale I picked her up on Thursday morning for about £9. That very evening WG started handing it out for free, including a 10pt captain, to people who haven't been playing at all or have played only Co-op. The handouts are massive. I have had to think very carefully about justifying how I spent that sum on WoWs this year and to have WG simply hand out about 25% of that value in goodies is a slap in the face quite frankly.
  12. Frankly, no. Firstly it's a piece of junk and I'm not interested in it, secondly I would have to earn that whereas others have been given stuff for doing nothing and thirdly it's not worth nearly as much as the freebies that are being handed out. Not a post that shows me at my best I admit, but that is the "short and to the point" answer to your question.
  13. Not quite correct actually. For this to be an accurate comparison, the monkey on the right shouldn't have to pass rocks out of the cage. It should be awarded the grape for doing absolutely nothing.
  14. Well done Vaderan. Finally an analogy that seems to fit the situation.
  15. No problem. I bought tickets knowing it was a lottery. He bought tickets knowing it was a lottery. In this case though, it wasn't a lottery. It was a conscious decision by WG (or a stupid mistake) to treat customers differently by rewarding one big for doing nothing and rewarding the other far less for playing the game.
