    Ranked Battles & Arms Race

    A few thoughts of my own: 1. Overall/overwhelming feedback on Ranked Arms Race is negative. 2. Why choose Arms Race for Ranked? Is it anything to do with WG seeking wider/mass-appeal for new players looking for an arcade based experience? Any connection to the recent launch on Steam? 3. Any connection to driving players into burning through flags and camo in short/mindless games? 4. Any connection to encouraging players to buy premium ships? Basically, there is nothing in the history of the game and the careful/considered evolution of this game to explain the latest mind-fart which resulted in Ranked Arms Race and 1980's style arcade CVs being launched at the same time. What was once a tactical, challenging and rewarding experience (with the usual mix of randomness, RNG and pure luck) is now simply an arcade style turkey-shoot with the emphasis on churning games in a short a period of time as possible. I'm not the best player around but I'm not the worst either. I played approximately 50 battles on Ranked this season and got precisely nowhere (net loss of 3 stars against my original starting position). Utter waste of time, effort, flags and camo. If the intention of WG was to alienate old farts like me in pursuit of young, snowflake arcade shooters then it worked. Congratulations. Donald

    New Ranked Season

    It's just a swivel-eyed, *edited*, banzai bum rush. More like WOWS Blitz. *edited*

    New Ranked Season

  4. This has just happened to me also. I had Aslains modpack installed and now I am banned for a week. I got an email about a year ago using Aslains modpack then but I thought it was all ok now. Apparently not. Maybe WG should just come out and say that Aslains modpack is not allowed to avoid this confusion.

    Anyone else get burnt out on this game?

    Definitely a Mexican't not a Mexican.

    Yamato Legendary Upgrade and other Module Choice

    correct but my question was -7 + - 7 with the answer being -14. Carry on.

    Yamato Legendary Upgrade and other Module Choice

    Thanks. On the maths point, it is actually -7 plus -7 = -14. If it was -7 minus -7 the answer would be zero. On being cancelled out, the point I was asking was that with an existing -7 does that feature of the legendary upgrade not apply because of it already applying on the existing module. Anyway - happy to see that the effects are stacked. As always, the helpful responses are appreciated and the rest are just chaff.
  9. Quick question. With the YLU selected, I receive -7% dispersion improvement. I already have AMS selected in module slot 2 which also gives -7% dispersion improvement. Does this mean I get a total of -14% dispersion improvement or is on cancelled out by the other? I'm asking because I'm considering going for the secondary battery modification in slot 2 instead now that I have the YLU. Any thoughts?

    Why perfect shell hits by the Henri cause no damage

    Who is this clown? Imposter. Nice post though.

    More content for tier 2-4

    Maybe restrict the timing of the missions to weekends and school holidays so that the kids have got something to do. Keeps them off the streets and from crossing the border.

    A minimap? Really? Mine is huge. The biggest. Ever.

    Another post about Divisions

    Fair point! You should let the CIA and FBI know of your incredible mind-reading skills and your ability to travel in time to see what actually happened in a match and what was going through the mind of the players. Your skills should not be kept hidden from the world. We need you.
