    Public Test of Update 0.9.3: Round 2

    @Kiwi1960 You do realise the "Spring Season" starts with the upcoming Public Test? So they published a story to say you could get a Tier VI ship as a reward for each season two days before the start of the next season where you could do that, which obviously was after the end of the previous (winter) season where you could have done that. The graphic in the previous story did show the "Spring Season" and the news post linked to above does mention a Tier VI ship (although they have done stealth edits of posts in the past, so there is a chance it didn't before).

    Results – Great White Fleet Event

    Try looking at https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/sales-and-events/the-big-stick/ , as linked in the original post here, rather than https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/sales-and-events/missions-091-weekly-1/ , as in your screenshot. The text should be on both, so they have screwed up, but it is on the first one.

    Do Perma-Camo's Effectively Make A Premium Ship?

    Three sorts of ship: Techtree/Silver - normal multiplier on how many credits you earn for what you do and normal maintenance costs, so they earn the least and cost the most and therefore make the least profit. "Special" - Coal ships and event ships where although they have a normal multiplier on the credits they have reduced maintenance costs (often a 50% reduction), so they don't earn any more but you make more profit. Premium - increased multiplier for credit earnings and reduced service costs, so they earn more and cost less and can be quite profitable. So to the original question of "do genuine premium ships have some hidden stats" the answer is yes.

    0.9.1 - British Cruisers: Part 2

    I think the answer to you gentlemen is each other's posts. A RN CV would find it a lot easier to set the required fires for Directive One than an IJN CV, since the former has HE bombs. But conversely an IJN CV would find it a lot easier to score the citadels for Directive Two than the RN CV would, since it's dropping large AP bombs rather than small HE. So they are balanced when considered a pair. Then, taking a look in game, Directive Three has torpedo hits, which is okay for all the CVs and if it does favour the Midway (as each of the three planes in her attack flight drop two torpedoes) then that seems reasonably fair when considering that and the previous two as a trio. And finally Directive Four with the incapacitation ribbons seems like it would be about as okay for all three nations, so as a quartet things still remain reasonably balanced.

    Legendary mod Moscow!

    They've changed that for every ship; you have until the end of the year to complete any of those missions you already have, but with the release of 0.9.1 you no longer get any more of those missions. Their plan is to have the unique upgrades available instead, from 0.9.3, in the Research Bureau (in the Armoury).

    Last chance to obtain London and Cheshire

    Due to the outbreak of war HMS London was the only county-class cruiser to receive that extensive modernisation, so if Wargaming wanted a premium ship that looked different from the other three in the game then it makes sense, to me, to chose the ship that did actually look that different. I suppose that as they were ordered, suspended, and cancelled as a pair (so it seems either ship's name would have been as valid) you could have complained that the techtree Tier VII is Surrey rather than Northumberland though.

    A letter from Narai

    Forward went the Atlanta, Pew-pew-pew-pew, Don't look at me Missouri, Oh hell, bugger you. Forward went the Atlanta, To hug his isle-waifu, And lurk behind that rock, Torpedoes soon to spew. Backward went the Atlanta, As with hitpoints few, Retreating to transport for repairs, A good idea, was true. Forward went the Atlanta, With radar and sonar too, To kill the Dallas and Campbelltown, And seek new isle-waifu. Back and forth went the Atlanta, Shells toward the sky of blue, Then raining down on enemies, For fires of orange hue.

    Petition to Keep Narai

    Removing Narai is an idiotic idea since the "bugs" in the operation are being caused by general problems with pathfinding and AI. There might be the joke "Doctor, it hurts when I do this."..."Well, don't do that then.", but that is a joke rather than an ideal to emulate. Something, whether "doing that" or playing Narai, might show the symptoms more strongly but the solution is still to identify and fix the underlying cause rather than to prevent the symptoms of this from being seen by advising or preventing people from doing that "something". And if you are actually trying to identify what the problem is then you want people to do the "something" where the symptoms show up particularly strongly, because that is also where your efforts to fix things show up more strongly. There's obviously a balance as if everything is going wrong then it's very hard to narrow down the causes, but something like Narai where things should be following the same sequence (so they are easier to compare) and people are still willing to play it and give feedback is exactly what should be welcomed as a testing environment.

    Update 0.9.1: British Heavy Cruisers Part 2

    I think you are out of luck. On https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/game-updates/british-cruisers-london/ it says "You'll also be able to complete the Challenges on VIII Cheshire after she becomes available at the end of February", and by then your coupon will have expired.

    Who do unique commanders have no naval rank ??

    Each commander portrait you see in-game has two elements to it. The base pictures are designed so sets of them only differ in the faces, so one set of overlay pictures can be used for that set of base pictures. For example with the Germans there is base_0_0.png to base_0_13.png, which get overlay_0_1.png or overlay_0_2.png (or neither when they are low ranking) placed over them as the captain increases in rank. I don't know why your DD captain doesn't get an Iron Cross though as all the German overlay pictures include that. https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/game-updates/update-0811-new-year/#misc "Changed the color of shell tracers to red for Commanders Nikolai Kuznetsov and Luigi Sansonetti." And in some other thread they said this was because they felt tricolour shell tracers wasn't in keeping with the feel of the game, which drew the response of "But spaceships and Halloween ships are?" Although I suppose the counter-argument is that you can switch off the display of the "unusual" camouflages and from the next patch you can do that and still equip the camouflage, with it looking like the normal permanent camouflage for that ship to you.

    Public Test of Update 0.9.0: Round 2

    Are you serious? Do you honestly think you are going to get any significant number of people taking part in this PTS with the debacle of the Puerto Rico? I mean I expected the price of the doubloon boosters to be increased as they seemed too strong for 1000 doubloons, so that wasn't a surprise. And I expected the price of the shipbuilding-token boosters to be reduced as they seemed too expensive compared with the number available for directives, so that wasn't a surprise. And I expected the missions to be harder, so that wasn't a surprise... just that they were THAT much harder. But you've broken the trust that any feedback would make any difference and you've done that at the same time as setting an insane grind for people that would take up any WoWs time they have.

    Dockyard: the Rules Made Simple

    What a scuzzy article. If you were someone who hadn't seen the forums/Reddit/YouTube highlighting of how impossible the missions are then you'd be completely misled by it. Judging things by previous events you'd look at it and might think that no Premium-Boosters would be too difficult and one Premium-Booster would still be pushing it. But you normally manage to complete directives before the next one unlocks, so two Premium-Boosters to allow 5 days for Directive One and 6 days for each of Directives Two and Three would seem achievable, and 12 days for Directive Four like you could even take your time over things. And even judging it by Directive One of this event (that you've already been doing before the article was published) two Premium-Boosters would seem achievable. It was a bit grindy, but you've done it or are close to having done it within the quoted 5 days, so how bad can it be? Oh. It can be that bad.

    Manual AA

    The skill is now called "Massive AA" and if you have it you get an increase in the instant burst damage, but get no sector reinforcement bonus to AA, so you are right in saying that "it's like it turns off right away" as the captain skill has "turned off" that part of things.
