Since you're only focusing on BB's, why do you still only have 38% w/r in T10?

 

I also got the Icarus in a free container, don't think I'm gonna sell mine.

I got the Icarus before the acasta..

Since I almost don't play tier 5 anymore at all, there was no point in saving the acasta, hence it got sold too.

 

However, I do agree with you. but mostly I think they feel a bit boring to play.

And for me the "feeling" I get from how a ship handles, shoots, torps and all that is what makes me play a ship.

 

Being able to shoot 1 torp at a time is awesome, aside from the fact that the whole torp launcher will not reload at all until the last torp is launched.

 

I will of course save the highest tier UK DD I get to save time on trying to get to Tier X once the whole tree is released.

Hey yo.

I say this with only good intentions.

 

 

I am pretty sure you already know this.

His post was not meant to appeal to your interests, it was to appeal to his own dis-interest in this ship and a way to share his opinion and I think a way to see of more players felt the same. (Quite a common practice in these forums)

 

His post was in no way salty, rude or bad.

No need to insult him by asking sarcastic questions.

 

It is up to you if you want to read posts, spend the time to respond and show interest in a post or not.

 

 

Best Regards

Me

The title of the thread didn't provide enough information to decide if wasn't worth reading, so having wasted my time reading it, i asked the op to provide a reason why I (and we the WoWS community) would be the slightest bit interested in it - because is it constructive, no, he's informing us that a player with 95% of his battles in BB's has sold a DD, and wouldn't the forum be a nice place if everybody told us when they sold a ship?

If you think that was an insult and/or sarcastic then you need to harden up a little.

I ended up doing the same thing. First received Icarus and about a week later the Acasta. Since I was kinda flat broke (like less then 1m credits) and Acasta couldn't be used in operations, I decided to sell it along with another small batch of my excess ships.

I keep my ships until the event ends, you never know when a mission is going to drop and you don't want doubles.

You might as well keep it for The Event, as having one makes completing The Event easier. As does remaining indoors, of course.

I have the acasta, Icarus, Jervis and Gallant. Not to mention got Warspite. No hope for the lightning at this point though.  Not impressed with UK DDs. Not getting the gimmick.

As these British DDs are like premiums in that you can put any  British captain in them without having to train them and all modules are unlocked if you are going to grind the line you may as well play all the DDs for that first win bonus each day you play.

 

If you are doing the campaign(?) to unlock the soverigns to get close to enough to buy the Cossack it may help to get the 'daily win bonus'.

 

If you have multiple DDs you can always sell them when the British DD tree is released (and you need to use specialist captains for them to be effective).

 

But if you're not interested in the line you may as well sell them now (unless if they're not in the dock means you 'win' them again).

Press "F" and the launcher starts to reload; game even pops up an indicator of this.

 

Full launcher.

Good choice. Having another potato driving around clueless in a DD is nothing we need in the game. :Smile_great:

Now if you'd want to do us all another favour, you should sell all your other ships, too, and then find something else to soend your free time on.. maybe... Bingo? You'd be able to annoy some helpless grandmothers then to no end...

Find the biggest carrot you can get from the supermarket, and sit on it? If you feel resistance, then ill quit WOWS for good. If not then keep doing you, because no else cares for your moans I sure as hell dont ;)

The articles are slightly ambiguous on this point, but I think you should be able to keep them:

Quote

You can only accumulate the experience necessary to research the next ship and unlock it once Update 0.7.10 is released. Any British commander can helm the destroyers without retraining, but only until the release of Update 0.7.10.

If you complete a British destroyer mission after the release of Update 0.7.10 and this ship is already in your Port, you'll receive compensation in credits equal to the base cost of the ship with all active discounts.

Source

 

The first highlighted statement doesn't mean much except that you will keep the XP on the ship (after all, you can research the following ship in a line without owning the current one). However, the last sentence states that if you for some reason haven't finished a combat mission (or gain it during 0.7.10 if that's possible) but have bought the corresponding RN destroyer(s), you will be credited the cost of the ship. This implies that if you have finished the missions before 0.7.10, you will keep the ships but will miss out on the compensation (obviously).
