    Good bye, it's been fun.

    I also recently played WoT again, but mostly because I got free premium time alongside the superhellcat and the sight of getting some extra reward tanks if I grinded a couple in a couple days. So I did! And I spend virtually all my credits and almost half my FXP in order to get these tanks quickly only for WG to change these reward tanks into collector tanks which make them virtually identical to tech tree tanks (especially in that I won't be able to swap crews freely). This was kinda a big letdown as I had been spending days with this, basically skipping on other stuff I could have spend my time in only to get denied So not at all happy with that.

    slava russian ship inc???

    I hope they release it but only if they give it radar Or CV with a smokescreen And 12km permaradar so no DD can ever sneak up on you!

    Why I keep getting the bad teams

    LOL! Now that would be something I sincerely hope not
  4. Iirc it was to do with the award being kinda obsoleted by the flooding rework? I dunno, but seriously I think they kinda left it to linger for reasons unknown to me. Alongside Liquidator, Unsinkable is now also harder to get. Good thing that in the current meta it's the (anti)fire signals we need more
  5. Im not ingame right now, but perhaps WG removed the ability to earn the flooding signals with the Liquidator award? Iirc it was something along those lines, because Liquidator became virtually impossible to get post-flooding rework. Kinda odd that WG never reworked the Liquidator award alongside the flooding rework.
  6. There already is a speshuul award for destroyers, it's called Detonation And lots of people farm it Hail to the detonation! If DDs get a special award, how about an award for every DD which manages to not die within the first 10 minutes? Wouldn't that be special and easy to farm for any half decent DD player. Btw, on a more serious note now, I like the spotting damage and the # torps spotted ones. Especially spotting torps is really underappreciated but it helps so much when screening ahead. Issue is that to remain unspotted, a DD player will often miss out on doing a lot of damage. I also like the potential damage one. And now that I'm thinking about it, wouldn't it make sense to not have the Detonation award reward you with 10 deto signals? I can see some cheapskates deliberately not flying a deto signal till they get detonated at least once on a certain day?

    Don't forget that the weekends are particularly bad when playing randoms solo
  8. It's not just about the XP, it's the total package that matters. If WG would focus merely on making a great game, WoWS would have been even more enjoyable then it currently is with fewer of the hickups But we all know there's more to it to making a game work, including the financial part. You can't focus on one aspect of the matter while ignoring the rest. The thing is that there are people who simply do not get bored as easily of playing the same operation. Same thing with some people getting bored more quickly from playing randoms or coop, different peoples have different tastes I can't tell how many exact operations I have played, but judging from me having over 10k battles as shown by my forum profile while having roughly 8k random and coop battles combined, I could guestimate that the total number of operations I have played is in excess of 2k and my total number of awards received in operations also numbers >2k and I still like em What makes operations feel fresh is the people I play them with and the missions I can complete in them, as well as being able to do some heavy carrying while getting rewarded for it.

    So what's supposed to be so good about this ship again? (Henri IV)

    Tbf, for some reason I never really clicked that well with his ship anyway (from memory, I didn't look up my old stats) like I did with the La Ga, CM and Algerie. The tier 9 and 10 have a different consumable loadout, perhaps it had something to do with that? I don't know, the top tiers from this line always seemed kinda bulky to me for some reason. I got La Ga during the 2017 xmas event iirc, so I never grinded through the tier 5 in that line.
  10. But what would be the point if nobody played them after a nerf? Wargaming has already stated that in their opinion, operations are already hardly popular enough to warrant any kind of attention. What would you think will happen if the relatively little incentive to keep playing these operations also dissipates? Before you know it, you might have clapped for helping operations get the first leg into their coffin

    Why I keep getting the bad teams

    Definitely true. But it was always a toss-up and totally independent of skill as who got the unicum CV was totally random. Lower tiers definitely get a lot of carrier, but I have actually had several games without any carriers. Don't get me wrong, I am not downplaying this issue (and imo this is an issue). Apparently there is demand for CV players playing some kind of simplified aerial farming gamemode. Perhaps WG should nerf the tier 4 carriers and give us a rewarding carrier operation? Just a hint @ wargaming There's all kinds of creative ways to solve issues like these. The only downside I can see with this is that Kamikazes will have virtually no real competition anymore again.
  12. And you now believe that I didn't get that?

    Battle of Nord Cape Collection

    I think so, yes.
  14. It does counter something. It counters that which I have already explained. It could do some serious damage in the exact way as I have explained. Perhaps it not sailing into cover behind the island right away was not intended, but since it did what it did (not move behind that island right away), its function was as I explained. And the function it fulfills is that of being a counter which frankly made it more challenging for me and my teammates. Dunno why you are trying to be so negative about this ship, but this ship has been this way for a long time now (iirc got changed the same time when a couple of the ships like the Atlanta stopped moving around the large island at I9 from the west side to more recently passing the I9 island from the east side).
