    Developer Bulletin: Update 0.9.3

    >> You'll be able to mount up to 21 signals in total. So we can expect to come across players who have all 12 combat signals mounted! I've no problem with how many Economic and Special signals someone has mounted as those just improve their earning for a match, but sticking all the combat signals on a ship can effect the outcome of a match.

    Public Test: Get a Premium Tier VI Ship for Free

    It is an independent copy of the game that is running the next release of the live system. This allows for each new release to be tested by a larger number of players before all players are updated. You get a range of items for doing things on the public test server that get added to your live server account, such as containers and flags. For the last test I gained - 5x each of the following special signals: Dragon, Wyvern, Red Dragon, Ouroboros, and Hydra. - 10x Type 6 camouflage patterns - 3x signals of each type, except special signals.

    Naval Legends: B-413 – Trailer

    WOW, the Foxtrot class was in fact a floating battery as they designed it to stay under for as long as possible by taking over much of the internal space for batteries. This made it slower than other classes. Wikipedia states the following regarding the Foxtrot class during the Cuban Missile Crisis The Soviet Navy deployed four Foxtrot submarines to Cuba. US Navy destroyers dropped practice depth charges near Foxtrot subs near Cuba in efforts to force them to surface and be identified. Three of the four Foxtrot submarines were forced to surface, one eluded US forces. I guess WOWs is rewriting history again by claiming the boat as a “legend”, but then again "legend" when used as a noun means " a traditional story sometimes popularly regarded as historical but not authenticated. "

    British Heavy Cruisers: Branch Review

    One or two years ago I would have ground these ships out as I joined because of the British ships, now they have been devalued - If lucky in RNG you would have collected some or all of the HMS undercoat versions via tokens and the armory. The rest of us are stuck with costly camouflage upgrades. - All indications at the moment are that the new Russian paper ships are the only ships that will be playable once released. The image of one of them is below

    British Cruisers: Obtain Cruiser London

    Well as the RNG god only rewarded all my work in the current round with the Hawkins, I'm not going to spend any time worrying about rewards that need me to play the Albemarle. A long time ago this game was fun and I would spend money on it every few months to make things go a little faster. Now I often just play enough to complete the first daily Mission and the first one or 2 containers and that is best done in Co-op mode. The rest of the game seems to totally depend on the right RNG outcome, having the right ship to start with and wishing to play for very long peirods of time.
  6. I came back in Oct, after a year of being away to see how things had changed. After seeing the on-going changes I'm still playing most days, but only enough to collect some of the daily rewards that allow me to gain some coal. between the RNG based drops and boxes, the level creep of each new ship and the future release of subs I'm not going to bother spending money on the game.

    Update 0.9.0. British Cruisers

    it seems to just be a way for major long term players to burn up their ship XP. Once upon a time, you could use ship XP to purchase many of the premium ships. Now you need to use cash, doubloons, coal or steel to get most of the premium ships so anyone who has completed the tech trees will just collect XP. The RB system is just a way to convert vast amounts of XP into small amounts of RB tokens.
  8. Jingles sums up just how bad the PR behind this is Like many here, all I can do is thank WOWS for freeing up my time over Christmas and saving me the money on a new 1 year sub, as I will not be worrying about the Puerto Rico and I can only guess how they will try and do over the player base in the future.

    Gorizia. Why?

    The ship only exists as a way to not just gate many of the missions in the first 3 Directives ( you know the ones that have a reward of the Gorizia), but also a set of 4 combat missions.

    Even CCs complain about Puerto Rico grind

    Well at this time of year I decide if it is worth my while renewing my Premium account - so thanks wargaming you are saving me £67.50. There is no way that I could get this ship with Premium, plus all the camos and flags that I have in my collection. The really sad thing is that anyone who shows up in this game with this ship will just be known for having more money than sense as that is the only way to get this ship.

    Updated Operation Dynamo

    47 different Royal Navy, French Navy Destroyers and Polish Navy (single ship) are listed as having been involved in operation Dynamo. HMS Gallant as a prem ship has been available and HMS Icarus at lvl VI of the tech tree is due, both of these were there. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ships_at_Dunkirk The real issue is why would you use anything other than USA Destroyers like the Mahan or Sims, a few of these with an AA build and defensive fire manage to clear the planes without many issues as their range and DPS is well above anything you can do with the other ships. As for HMS Jervis the new lvl VII Royal Navy Destroyer, she may have been sent, but at the time was stuck in dock, having repairs done as she was involved in a collision.

    Update 0.7.9 PTS - General Feedback

    You need to remove the mini-map aim point indicator that you added. It makes it far to easy to target ships via the mini map. BBs are easy in a storm as they are so big.

    GO NAVY! Event

    Well I have completed all that I need from this event, which was to reduce the cost of 2 tier X camos from £30 of doubloons to around £11.50 of event crates and to collect a fair amount of extra coal. As a well planned out event, it failed badly with the highlight being the very random in battle 'quests'. I just loved trying to damage modules with an AP only Mino or trying to spot 9 Torps when there were no DDs or CVs on the other team. At times it was more fun to try and guess what 'quests' players were trying to complete than worry about the ongoing battle. It's fun watching a BB try and get spammed with torps. I dread to think what newer players made of the whole thing as they would not have had high tier ships and so would have earned very few points during each battle. For the last few days, all I have been doing is joining Sharks and then switching across to Eagles as this earned an extra crate each day, it's not as if I earned anything extra for being loyal as I was not able to play every day to get perfect loyal.

    Special Task not triggered

    The logic behind the task is a bit wrong. It does not seem to count areas that are recaptured and then defended. In fact, if all 3 areas are first lost this task fails during the game so you can not even try to retake and defend.

    Go Navy Contest Pointless

    No, it may be badly designed and the latest 'panic' change may make it worse, but it is not pointless as you can collect a lot of free stuff from it. The only issue is that if you selected the correct team on the first day you will end up with a lot more free stuff than if you had selected the other team.
