    WoWS x Warhammer 40,000: Imperium vs Chaos

    Normaly i would buy the bundle but i think this is very bad timing Wargaming both for the new line of russian ships and for this warhammer themed bundles because most of the players with the threat of submarines potentialy ruining our fun in immediate future makes us hold ourselves from any more spending on your game for the time being. So to recapitalize for the Warhammer thingy nice idea but really terrible timing Wargaming. I forsee this bundle isn't going to sell much due to the timing thing.

    Submarines - first impressions

    The ones that will have the skill to kill the other submarines will be the Leaders of the Pack and the ones unable will be the fish food. These ones will dominate the matches. For the rest 1) the below sea torp targeting mechanic seems very clanky and is hard to understand what goes wrong when it does. You have no "feeling" by the simple models of the distance or the speed of the target so that you can give proper lead on your pings so in the end it feels rather random. So underwater pinging becomes a tedious boring process that when/if succeded on the other end it devastates the opponent. This is very hit or miss mechanic. I would prefer if the pings would go away and to make it so that you could fire torps without it. 2) give the torps a long arming of 2-3 km so to avoid situations of point blank torping 3) make drop charges work even if submarines are emerged 4) make the submarines unable to spot dds or other ships in smoke (with values just like any other ships against them so for example if a Smolensk fires while in smoke the detection value for a submarine on his proximity should be at least equal to that of any other ship) 5) make the submerging/emerging much slower 6) make the submarines detection range higher to what is now when emerged perhaps around 5.4 (so the submarine will have very good concealment but will be able to be spot back by the most stealthy dds of the game (Gearing with Legendary etc) and if he choses to act like a spoter he will compromise like this his escape route being cumbersome to turn or dive back in since that will be too slow process, or sail away since turning will be slow and navigation speed slow as well 6) make fixed depth values for the submarines like this a) Surface b) periscope depth c) below periscope depth Perhaps like that it could work but then again i don't see it be very fun. Also it should be added in MM as an extra ship with 2 of them as max value per team. So MM should become with 14 or at least 13 players.

    Do you want submarines in the game?

    So DO I WANT SUBMARINES IN GAME? Short answer is NO Long answer would be yes but only in a separate troll battle mod (like now for example) that would be semi pvp but no record about wins/losses would be kept. That way people could learn to play ships test new strategies and approaches to the game grind ships (especialy when they have A hull) without that constant anxiety of possible loss. PS I have long experience in MMOs and i can guarantee you that submarines in randoms will turn the game into a troll mod and most people will just stop playing or they might keep playing but as a joke. So WG if you want the game to turn into a joke go ahead.

    Server down (for 3 hours)

    I just got Stalin with the coupon. I hope the server will remember it on my new login...
  5. As i had just got Stalingrand with the coupon the server droped. (perhaps it was because i got it... the server couldn't take the hit of me getting my hand on this glorious ship to disgrace it as i did with many others in the past) I beg forgivness mr Server. Please forgive my sacriledge.

    Karma and Game Theory

    What you wish to find out? If Karma affects MM? It is affecting it. There are lots of dirty secrets about this game that many of these douchebags that are offending you are aware of but they will never admit it. They hide behind a computer and talk big.. by presenting their game numbers compaired to yours. Numbers not deserved in many cases and they know it. They are just hypocrites. It is as you suspect. Karma officially all say it doesn't affect anything. It affects MM. Noone of them will ever admit it. You wanna know another thing too? The game deliberately affects negatively the shots of the average player so that they keep him in low W/L ratio so that he can keep grinding more seeking success. Not all affected though. It's kinda random. But lets say that 50% is affected. The game puts you into a black list and no matter how you improve it will either put you in ape teams so that you are kept in low W/L ratio, or if they see you can still win despite that then your gun accuracy will get punished. It's just like in real world in most things. A fake show. There are the stars that their shots are not affected, so only their skill will count, there are the selected percentage that their shots and MM will be at least half decent, and there is the black sheeps that no matter what they do their MM will mostly gonna suck and they will be missing even on shooting the perfect spots on perfect broadsides. And that is why i quit this game some time ago. Because i have grown seek and tired of all this travesty.
  7. In some players WG doesn't mess with their aim. They let their shots only being affected by their skill. To the average Doe though this doesn't happen. That is why no matter how many citadels you get on perfect broadsides on training room or in co-op the same does not apply when on randoms or clan battles. Because WG sets the rng to skyrocket just for you. And the more it happens the more the player thinks "need more skill need more skill" or "need this ship need that ship" "i heard that ship is accurate" "i heard that other ship shoots well" "hey i saw a contributor to play it and he did 300k damage this ship rocks" and you get to see more and more videos and "perfect games with ideal plots and ideal shots and ideal outcomes" All is a set up. You watch the X contributor you try to reproduce it somehow and after many many many games you come to realize that some unreal positive situations only happen to them because the game is "set" around them cause they work as hypers and advertisors. That is why the average contributor has pleasant matches because on him WG doesn't "alter" the gun performence. To him is only "skill" taken in account by the game and of course some people simply get better teams than others all the time. All these happen so that WG can milk you. The more you will be spending on this game the more blacklisted you will end up. Thats fact ahd is tested. The whole "skill" factor in shots is present but is just that the average player will always get crappy shots in perfect broadsides not because he shoots so bad but because as i said to him the game deliberately worsens his shots dispression. So the contributors got very good skill and they rightfully do 200k 300k etc but on them that happens constantly because they are not into the "blacklist" . But if you d put a contributor to play through my account my location IP etc he would have same shity results as i do on perfect broadsides. And he would be the same person. But the game would think differently. All is a set up. A fake show. Why all this travesty dear russians? Could be because if people were happy with the free of charge ships they would not pay extra to buy your premiums? Looks like all this "profit" mentality has killed everything in mankind. I wish things were a bit like the older times. Back then of course money and profit was a factor but it was not the holy grail for the gaming companies. Maybe because back then these guys were having fun by making games and didn't see it as just a ticket to wealth. Why i dare to say all that openly? BECAUSE I HAVE QUIT THE GAME. Uninstalled everything etc... So i don't care getting banned etc... You are powerless against me now employees of WG and WG-forum-trolls. Your wrath means nothing to me. So i had to come and reveal the truth. What a dirty world we live in. Same happens to everything nowdays. And the whole world pays the fact that communism failed not because it was a fail system but because the power went to the wrong people and they messed it up so badly that now Russians and ex soviet union people, have completely lost faith in anything other than "making money". And they got even worse than americans on that. So we have to pay the price of the failure of communism in sovier union. Back to the game talk now. So if players would succeed with the free ships they d be making less money so people have to fail! So they alter the average players performence through their servers. Only contributors and selected few don't get that. PS advice to anyone that might read this. You can get premium subscription. But if WG realizes you are a spender and you buy ships camos spend doubloons all the time etc they will blacklist you and you will do worse. The less you buy the most satisfying game experience will be for you. Test it for yourselves and you will see. Bye bye i am happy to get rid of you and you are delighted to get rid of me so in the end its a happy end for all. You made some bucks out of me but its ok.What is done is done What matters is that from now on this economic haemorrhage called WG games is over for me. More quality of life now for me. One less person to fool for you. But i think you milked me enough already. And you will find others to milk now. But i want you to know that i know you sold your soouls to the devil to make profits and i don't know if you believe in god or some divine entity but when your time comes perhaps those sins will feel heavier for you. Or maybe not. That remains to experience yourselves.

    WG's "republic tokens" misleading description

    Ah yea... the "small letters" in the contract. Always banks and insurances do that. And WG of course. Now you have written more posts than your games played so i understand that you are payed to roam the forums and dig in anyone that would have a rightful complain. It is used everywhere now. Employed people pretending to be ordinary people write in social networks under strict orders from companies or political parties trying to bully or ridicule any dangerous opinion expressor. Profit might be good but what you doing is terrible. Was that who you dreamt to be when you were little? But go ahead spread your filthy game promoting propaganda. "this game is so full of skill... " yeah ok the more you will keep repeating this lie the more you will be believing it yourself. In this game of course there is skill involved but it takes small part in the shots outcome, or to put it more accurately, in some players WG doesn't mess with their aim. They let their shots only being affected by their skill. To the average Doe though this doesn't happen. That is why no matter how many citadels you get on perfect broadsides on training room or in co-op the same does not apply when on randoms or clan battles.

    WG's "republic tokens" misleading description

    And you know.... I am tired of being fished all the time by this game to get doubloons and ships that gonna make the difference somehow. I think this game is very random. They try to make us take it seriously. It's not a serious game when if i get for a few seconds flat broadside i always get insta-killed but when enemy is flat broadside either noone ever shoots him or when they shoot him he has the antimagnet for citadels and never get wrecked. So i think there is a secret blacklist of the game that the game puts you into it and destroys your shots while enemy gets always citadels on you from any angle. Thats my impression from the game so far. Its a very rng-luck game looks like needing "skill" but thats a lie. And i am tired of all these "tricks" this company tries to siphon your money. So i am out and gonna use my time in something more rewarding and fun like washing the dishes and cleaning the toilet

    WG's "republic tokens" misleading description

    The problem is that the first 4 bundles give you EXACTLY what they claim to give in their description. So you get 4 "truths" initially and that leads you into the 5th (final) bundle where the scam takes place. Of course the benefits of the 5th bundle seem too great but it would be at the end of the road. If we believed the first 4 descriptions word for word we see that in fact we get awarded what was promised. But the 5th description is scummy. It clearly states that (if taken word for word) "it gives 30X bundles INCLUDING Mogador" Let's say you book a holiday in Greece. And you get the very same manner of description. You pay for a room that has "2 beds + balcony looking at the sea INCLUDING breakfast" Now how would you feel if when getting there the hotel manager would explain you that the breakfast is included but as a possibility but was not in the price you paid and that the hotel would provide breakfast for a few "lucky" rooms but you are not amongst them ? Would you feel fooled? I mean the word INCLUDING should mean something right? Same with the Mogador. So taken the description word for word it says it will INCLUDE Mogador in that final bundle whatever that might be. So when you get there you see that you also need to pay 1000 doublons to unlock that final bundle. So you pay and then you open 1 box that gives you even crappier stuff than the previous bundles that at least you got for free (with tokens) ! And there you realise that is was all a scum. The final bundle was not about you getting 30X boxes + Mogador INCLUDED.... not even 30X random boxes that Mogador "could be included" . You only get a few flags and some camo and thats it. And you just paid 1000doubloons. Congrats fool. The final message i think was deliberately misleading. To hype you about the final reward. Had been fair it should inform from the very start that this final bundle will need you to pay 1000doubloons and to state exactly what you ll be getting with them. So it should say "You will have to pay 1000 doubloons to be able to open 1 BOX and that box will most likely contain 3 flags 2 camos and possibly Mogador" That would be a fair description. Because the word "INCLUDED" means something and i know what it is supposed to mean even if i am not native english speaker.

    The in-game description implies it. READ what is says.

    WG's "republic tokens" misleading description

    And it is THERE EXACTLY why it is so fishy. Because the description indeed says the truth about the first 4 bundles , on them you do get what is described. So you get to believe that on the 5th bundle you will be getting Mogador + 30X boxes. Initially, you get to think this. But then you might rethink of it and you might say "hmmm so i ll be getting 30X boxes + Mogador on this final bundle? Well this is WG, perhaps better hold a smaller basket.... perhaps I shouldn't be expecting so much, perhaps they mean I will be getting "only" 30X boxes with the Mogador being potentially in one of them" But it isn't that either! You get to that point and you are being asked to pay 1000 doubloons to open the bundle. "Ok" you think. "Of course they would charge something to open the final bundle, fair enough" So you pay the 1000 doubloons and then you realize that there are 29 boxes more to open by paying 1000 doubloons each! For very little reward since you are getting rather useless stuff and potentially a ship that will be out soon anyway and it's a normal ship. Not a premium. So you need to spend potentially 30.000 doublons to get a normal ship and all that at the end of a grinding quest marathon . And there you realize the extent of the fraud and that you were being manipulated from the very start so that they manage to siphon some doubloons out of you. And that is quite sad.

    WG's "republic tokens" misleading description

    Are we expected to watch every single video related to World of Warships to dig into the bitter truth? The in game descriptions are clearly misleading! Look here. While the first 4 bundles description is stating the truth the final one (5th) is clearly misleading.

    WG's "republic tokens" misleading description

    Right. I ll change the title then to be more appropriate
  15. Republican tokens are good only to get some camo for the future dds. The 4 bundles you unlock with them are ok if you need the coal but when you open all 4 by spending the tokens it does not give you Mogador neither it gives you 30 boxes free, as the misleading description suggests, but puts you in a random box safari where you need to spend 1000 doublons for each box and at the end after spending potentialy 30k doublons it might give you Mogador. I don't know cause i didn't get there. I only opened 2 boxes that had 3x30 flags and some camos. So what a disappointment really. WG was quite sneaky on that. Ah well at least now i know enough so to at least warn the others. Preferably spend the republic tokens in camos or exchange them for credits. As for how i got to get so many well i had plenty of ships and i got 2 french ships from the boxes you get via the weekly mission. But was it worthing the time and efford? NO.
