    ST - free Premium consumables

    That's funny!! Cause while writing a few days ago regarding premium consumables or not it came to my mind the beginning of "The Blind Side" when we hear Sandra Bullock saying: - Many would think that the bigger contract goes to the Quarterback and they would be correct! What might come as a surprise is that the second most payed player is the Left Tackle. Because, like every good housewife knows, the first check is for the mortgage, but the second is for the insurance!!!- LOL

    ST - free Premium consumables

    Don't get me wrong. What I'm describing is a total collapse of enemy's line. It's not that one gets flanked by some smart enough hidden enemy player. There is no spark of reaction aside a few maverick/kamikazes dispatched in seconds by focus fire; the rest of their team is already kiting away en-masse. So one can either wait in the conquered cap or give chase, just to end it faster. Let's say... within 8min from the start more or less?! There is no time even for overextending away from your team. Same here. I check on most of them daily. And again, I agree 100% with you. Don't want to use Premium consumables. Fine for me. But I'd like to point out what you just said: ...if a players knows what he's doing.... Nice replay but I didn't need to see it to figure out your level or commitment/devotion to WOWS. Your words were already enough to convince me. The point, again, is that I'm not talking about either me or you, but rather ppl who probably doesn't even know or care that this Forum exist. For them, not me or you, Premium consumables, are a bottleneck. They need them (or they think they do) so they won't show up too often in high tiers cause they have to scrape the credits first.

    ST - free Premium consumables

    Ok, maybe I was too bitterly harsh on my last one. But we can't ignore the issue is real. It's not fun either being on the other side and chasing down non-fighting players into what is no longer a battle, but rather a slaughter. I do understand the wish by WG to make accessible its contents to the largest possible pool of players, but the learning curve on WOWS ain't easy and simply lots of players are not ready. For this reason I cannot thanks enough CCs like Flamu, Noster, NoZupForYou and especially iChase for their titanic effort.

    ST - free Premium consumables

    Regarding the increase of performance, I hope you are right, but I doubt it. I'm far from being the best player, but I don't lose credits on average in a Tier X battle. And I'm always using all Premium consumables. My first 2 Tier X battles last night, before posting here, had the same script: a good chunk following/lemming on a side, clogging in one single tile even the few decent ones, and ending into be boxed. Another few were the "don't scratch my camo" kind. You know them? Those who took some serious beating and now never leave the edge of the map. So one wonders: should I stay or should I go. Get the penalty and hope in the next MM, but at least saving a good 10min of your free time. No , no, I mean... of YOUR LIFE. I'm sorry, but the kind of players I'm talking about won't benefit from having free Premium consumables. Nor will you by being in the same team with them. Now, since you are from UK, imagine for a moment to be Harry Kane. Now look at your team. Do you see Pope, Maguire...? Maybe Oxlade-Chamberlan? Or are you staring at your Parish's team when you were a little kid. With whom would you like to show up at the next FIFA cup? Unsportsmanlike?!? Are you joking? I was under the impression that WOWS was one of the more sophisticated MMO currently available. Beside the competitive nature of any MMO out there, it takes quite a good deal to master this one. But if you prefer, aside consumables, we can also forget about positioning, angling, skills, modules..... Free overmatch for everyone!!! And let's not forget to make aimbot legal!!!

    Update 0.9.3. European Destroyers: Part 2

    Oh!! Thank you. I missed it ;P

    ST - free Premium consumables

    @wot_2016_gunner @Echo_519 @Toivia Guys!! You are missing what I'm really saying. This isn't about the economic aspect. Pretty much everyone use Premium consumables in Tier X battles (not just Russian BBs) because, why not? A good player would make a profit or at least get even anyway. The point was about having in place a tiny (sigh!) but useful bottleneck for bad players. IMHO, and opposite to Sub_Octavian, this change would be a real nerf for Player A (a good player) cause he has to deal not with one Player B (a noob) in his team, but many many more at once.

    Update 0.9.3. European Destroyers: Part 2

    No! It means you get credits instead of the rewards for each stage up to get the Legendary Upgrade. For that we have up to the end of the year as stated before. The Leg Upg is worth much more; I've got 2.5M credits for selling the Shima's. I'm fine with that when we talk about the 50 consumables of whatever. However I'm not fine with regards to the last stage that's unique to all the Leg Upg Missions aka the 2 Mosaic camos. We cannot buy Mosaic anywhere. Another short sight by WG....

    ST - free Premium consumables

    Mmh, it might be fair up to Tier V but beyond that I'm not sure it is such a good idea. It seems one more step into flattening once again the player base. What I mean is that bad players at the moment might not meet the ends even with permanent camos and/or Premium time/ship in a high Tier battle. So they would forced to disappear in lower tiers for while to scrape together new credits. That's a good thing IMHO. With this further change there is no more any "escaping the noobs" way left.

    CV autopilot: a sad story

    It's a valid opinion although I seems to understand that you never had direct experience on cvs. So, if that's the case, excuse me but you cannot fully grasp the length of the problem. I've reached out to WG Support and the response was that the developers are fully aware and will address the issue. We need just to be patient.

    CV autopilot: a sad story

    True!!! That's an excellent point I forgot about: I'm flying a squadron when I see my CV being attacked. At that point I do have to make the choice of either keep going and hope for the best or bail out and take personal control of the ship to enable AA Defense Sector and/or make sure the ship does as quickly as possible anything to dodge the hits. Thanks

    CV autopilot: a sad story

    In general I agree with you and, in Random, that's what I do most of the times too. Only in 1 game out of 100, CVs do actually have to commit to a cap or a (ship) showdown for lack of any other units left on the map. But in Ranked it's a whole different story. Aside the fact that many are plain potatoes or didn't take the time to read the "vital" rules (i.e. buffs, final cap), the CV is needed as close as possibly as it can be due to the higher demanding rhythm of the battle; everything can be over in as less as 8min.

    CV autopilot: a sad story

    I'm fully aware that there already a couple of similar topics on the subject (worth mentioning El2aZeR's "Please revert auto pilot changes"). But I'd like to get more in depth of what is wrong with it IMHO. And since after a full year nothing happened yet, let's do send a reminder that we are still waiting. All the more with the current 15th Ranked Season whereas the problem gets really dramatic at times. 1) Needless to say, the possibility to switch at any given time between CV and squadron en route toward enemy is greatly missed. Remembering in the heat of the battle to move before picking up a new squadron is quite tricky, but if one does, be prepared to waste 10 to 15 precious seconds as the rule of "do it by yourself" is in full effect here. 2) Simply reversing has become a total gamble as the system shows a tendency to rather go for a loop around, which of course starts by going forward, sometimes the very last thing one needs to do in that moment. 3) Speed is another HUGE issue under the new system as that too is totally automatic. Let's say one comes under fire and wants to move a little further around the island used as a cover, just to change the angle. Plotting a small course is basically a suicide since it will be inevitably executed at 1/4 or 1/2 speed and if the selected way-point isn't perfectly satisfying its wicked logic, the system might even starts by first reversing. All in all the OLD system in effect before the Rework was far from being perfect, but at least it followed what was your choice, maybe your mistake. That would be acceptable. But doing the plotting for then discover that it was poorly executed and your ship is gone it's whole different story. A bitter one. Farewell, PS: if you want to reply, pls stay on topic.

    weird sound

    Needless to say, I'm fully aware that WOWS replay files stop working after each update. What I meant is that I have a folder full of video files recording my screen while I was watching a replay of my best battles, same as you I guess except I don't upload them on YouTube. You are not the only one capable to do it. And the damn bells aren't there. Happy now?

    weird sound

    Checked some BB replays in my collection and the bells are not there! Not in 2018 or in 2019. Maybe it used to be an option before.

    weird sound

    I agree with you guys. Never heard before and it's very annoying. At least it's limited to BBs. Already I can't stand the sound of a DD's engine implemented a few updates ago, but at least I can zoom to spare my ears; but there is no escape from the bell. WTF?!?
