    should battlecruisers be added to the UK tree

    And this is what I'm currently kinda missing in WoWS. I've played for only a bit over a year and I have all but 3 tech tree BBs left to unlock.

    Royal Navy Event - Is there one more mission set left?

    Agreed with @Verblonde and @Karasu_Hidesuke.

    Collectors club

    I'm awaiting this collection thing with great anticipation actually! Will there also be flags at some point? Or maybe some symbol or patch instead of an emblem? I don't have all ships in the game and certainly not the most of everybody out there, but I'm proud of the 126 ships I currently have laying in my port

    Is WoWS becoming as Toxic as WoT?

    I do miss it, as I used it mostly for chatting or complimenting opponents. Or for some mutual fun and to me this is a vital aspect of an online game. I'm glad this option still exists for WoWS Though I wanted to add something else about toxicity and enjoying the game: The last few weeks I've been spending more and more time in the official Operations chat channel and setting up, or joining, (farm) groups. And not just Dynamo, but I've played Narai/Hermes/KW/Defense/Cherry a large number of times. Often I join, just so I can experience some decent to great teamwork, everyone having the same goal (to succeed and to have fun (we should still try to save Parks one day, LOL!)) and being able to dispose of most potatos and having at least decent people on your team. And yes, I've been in teams with teammates that purposefully tried to get me killed (by spawning the extra bombers and bodyblocking and whatsnot, or talking bad behind my back so certain people didn't want to etam up with me anymore simply because I don't accept someone having a hissy fit to my disadvantage, ship happens) but generally speaking this teambuilding and networking is a grand + to how I positively experience this game! Absolutely loving this!!!

    PSA: Twitch Drops

    These containers don't drop any twitch camos I suppose? Would be very nice if they did, purple camos look neat!

    This thing makes Izumo look like a beauty queen

    Yes to making a new branch of BC for the RN and the German navy! I think it should be possible to balance them to their BB counterparts, no real need for another class. Though weighing shouldn't be as hard as described by some here (it being impossible to find a match for BCs), in case WG would adopt a weighted system (for instance, giving a tier 5 BC the same weight as a tier 6 cruiser). Of course this could also present new problems, but this wouldn't even be necessary if BCs can be in the game with BB symbols and balanced accordingly. At any rate, BCs should have a good amount of health as they were typically larger/greater displacement compared to their BB counterparts, but other balancing options are also an option.

    Santa's gifts are here! Please, share your loot.

    That's a lot of signal flags! Well at least you can sell them for even more cre...nvm
  9. I don't really know where to start with you here, but obviously this part you describe here is illustrative for the actual problem which was most likely debated over a lot in Belgium. The value of these boxes may be what it's worth ingame, but you are forgetting that many (if not most?) buy ships only when discounted or don't pay 50 doubloons for the use of the +100% camos each battle (or 125 doubloons for the +200% ones). Compared to these prices, you actually get the short end of the stick as you will pay full price for these items (the camos and the doubloons at least). And I agree with this. @Excavatus has no business attacking Blackfish in the way he does. He's trying to provoce a flamewar here, maybe he doesn't even realize this. The addictive part here is that you pay 20 boxes and get nothing, you get frustrated and then buy some more boxes. This is gambling, when looking at it from that perspective. Now I'm not some lawyer and I don't know how this works within the laws, so I will leave this debate to the people who do know the insides of this debate. But Blackfish does have a point I believe and the way Excavatus replies here is not how a lawyer would have responded.

    Newport scenario after changes

    It would make perfect sense to limit the number of DDs in ops to just 1. Except for maybe DD mains divving up with another DD main for tier 6 ops, and both using USN gunboat DDs like a Monagham and a Farragut. Obviously this would not be visible in the screenshot as these div symbols in the screenshot are deleted by photoshop. He performs poorly in BBs, hence why he misunderstands their value and undervalues other BB players and BBs. And his argument is a really weak one when looking at it in a rational way. These reasons are probably why he is completely ignoring your point, it's not you nor your explanation as he probably understands perfectly fine what you mean. He simply doesn't want to agree with it and is operating in damacon modus. I hope I don't have to dig out my stats from some months ago that proved that the best average winrates were the teams with the lowest number of DDs. This was mostly Raptor I believe, I posted them on the forums for all to see. He presents no such stats. It would merely undermine the rationality value of his opinion.

    Suggestions for OP Hermes

    which is exactly why cruisers need to get up to full strength at the healing part.

    That's true. But while they still are inexperienced, they won't be able to carry as well as the more experienced players can. That said, I still don't think this ops was made more difficult in any significant way. If anything, the removel of bot carrier planes made things easier. Wrong. Because that was not his point anyway, you're barking up the wrong tree here. DFens's point was basically that if you put this DD potato into a CL/CA or a BB, he'll usually be much more helpful for the team (and usually here meaning almost guaranteed certainty). And whether you like it or not, this is a fact. In this ops, cruisers are usually the most useful players, followed by BBs. A good CV player also helps a lot here now that the enemy doesn't have any planes here anymore, though CV is a bit a clss on its own. To help out the CV player, players should focus DefAA ships whenever the situation permits a choice. And usually DDs won't have the opportunity to torp a specific target in the pack somewhere, they basically have to torp the one closest to them and then wait for the reload.

    Suggestions for OP Hermes

    Yes, it will. I played Algerie a lot in ops till I elited it. Only gripe I had was its slow turning turrets. And it being a cruiser, of course All cruisers should get up to full health halfway this ops, regardless of which cruiser you bring.
