Listen...I pretty much nevere posted here...I just play the game since...A LOT....and that's it.

so I just wanted to share a thought I got.

I'm one of the supposed whales...I dropped like 40 euros on dobloons, bought a couple boosters and grinded 4 directives to get the PR.

Why I wanted it? I don't know....I already have alaska and I know PR was not such a MUST HAVE ship. She is just okish...a little boring and pretty much not so interesting.

I finally got her yesterday and being I'm 9 days early I could probably have saved some euros on a booster....but it's ok. I'm a smoker and being it costed me barely like a bar of cigarettes I see it as not a such big deal.

Of course I wanted to test her and play her but since I started to do it....well. You know...a neverending stream of personal attacks and insult.

Listen...I know...the whole event was shady at best and WG pulled off a really moneygrabbing move here. 

 

BUT

 

I work since I was 18...I have 2 degrees and now I own a company with 32 employees. I'm not married and I have no kids....I do have friends and a nice social life.

I like nice things...and If I see something I like and that I can afford I spend money on it. I mean...I have 2k rims on my car....and a custom shop Telecaster worth a used car. and I do not play guitar anymore!

 

I really don't know why I'm writing this....I do not give a [edited]anymore on random people judgments on me....I know I'm an okish guy and if you'll ever come to my home I'll cook you all a dinner much more expensive than a PR just cause I like to.

 

so well....that's it... I know the whole PR event was BAAAAAD! But that is on WG side....not on somene like me that have videogames as main hobby and is willing to spend some monety on something totally stupid. I know I did...It's stupid. still It's not SO stupid....I throw away 200X a year in cigarette and alchool...and I think this is way dumber.

 

this said...kill me cause I pay for pixels...

Good for you

I got her (smolensk) just to know how to kill her....is a cheat and I feel bad every time I play it

 

BTW....the whole point of my post was: it's ok to blame WG for that...but don't attack the players. they have no guilt besides being maybe a little dumb in theyre money managing. I know I am. But PR even was MOST DEF NOT the dumbers spending I did in my life. I do not think we are satan cause we throw away some coins....

I got so many parking tickets cause of my job I can not count em...that's a waste!

 

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement

Congrats on finishing PR, OP!

Worry not, eventually people will grow tired of personally attacking and focusing PRs in matches, and it'll end up being just another tier X ship.

Lucky that some people have the money to invest in this or the game wouldnt be going anywhere (wouldn´t even exist)

I didn´t go for the PR, got like a 100 mega crates instead

I agree with you. Spending 40 euros on pixel that give fun or beer it is the same.

I could buy PR for 25000 doubloons when the event ends, but I won't. Not because I cannot afford it, but because I don't need it and I'm not supporting WG's newest moral low point. Whoever buys the ship agrees with the pay to grind principle. Lot of players will leave if this practice becomes regular, and you can have some fun playing your pay to grind boats against a bunch of bots, for a while before the server gets shut down.

I totally agree with you point. And I probalby think the same. Still I did a middle groud...payed some just cause I wanted to. I'm not here to tell the right from the wrong. I'm just here to say that the blame should (and in fact it is) put on WG. Not on us poor morons that for one reason or another fell for it...Knowingly I mean. I do know I hated the event and still put some coins in it. I'm not trying to tell I'm right. Just that I'm in fact not evil...and I did not rape anyone doing it. Or stole anyone's money but my own.

What you don t know is that many forumites are boycotting WG, one way or another.

 

The reason is very simple, WG does not consider feedback from the players at all. They went through with that idiotic CV rework of theirs, even if everybody said is crap.

 

At how boorish they are, I am amazed they dropped their next idiotic idea, the NTC/Research Bureau, as it was originally designed.

 

This PR event was another dubious event, selling a tier 10 premium for the first time. If they only did a 3 directives mission rewarding Gorizia, probably more people would have been happy.

 

Last year, 2019, was WoWs' year with the most wrong decisions. This year we may get submarines, even if all the community consider them badly designed.

 

Because of this, quite a few players do not feel they should reward WG for their dubious decisions. Financially too.

 

This is why most early PR buyers dont have a good image.

this said...kill me cause I pay for pixels...

I agree and disagree with you at the same time. Let me explain.

You are of course right that you have every right to spend your hard earned money in any way you please. And yes, some people buy alcohol, some people buy cinema tickets, some people get drunk in a bar, and some people buy pixel ships (I've bought many pixel ships myself). I can't blame you for spending your own money.

 

But at the same time, it is people like you, people who buy Puerto Rico, that show WG that this event was fine. Every euro/dollar/pound/whatever currency you use, is a small bit of feedback that tells WG "I'm ok with this event". That is why I disagree with the way you spent your money (in this particular instance). I can't blame you for it, I can't stop you, but I do disagree. Not that it matters what I think :p

 

This means that I will focus fire you in your Puerto Rico when I see you on the enemy team. Not because I dislike you, but because I dislike your ship, and the way you obtained it. I will go out of my way to make every enemy Puerto Rico's life a living hell by focussing my fire. Not because I hate the player, but because I hate the event. And if nobody plays Puerto Rico, it gives the signal that this sh*t is not wanted in this game.

 

That said, there is NO excuse for verbally assaulting any Puerto Rico, or teamkilling them. You are not responsible for that scummy event, and I have no trouble believing you're a nice guy. You are however, responsible for your own actions. Like I said, nobody deserves sh*ttalk and insults over it, nor teamkill. But focussing my shots on one enemy ship is within the boundaries of the game rules, and that is something I intend to do.

 

I'm not trying to bully or demean you in any way. I honestly hope you have all the fun with the ship, because ultimately having fun is what this game is all about. But please, understand the rationale behind the focus fire you're receiving. It's not personal, it's a statement against WG's greed and lies. Personal attacks and insults are personal, and should be reported and banned. There is just no excuse.

 

 

Also, and I realise this might sound weird after all that, welcome to the forums :)

Always nice to see more people finding their way in here :Smile_honoring:

I totally agree. I'm not saying I don't get it...I know where the hate come from. I just really want to tell...it's ok to voice the disagreement but do not hate the morons like me. we are probably ok guys...and we did not do this.

As you know, I agree with this.

But keep in mind that some people do not only hate WG and Puerto Rico, they actively teamkill and insult the players. And even all that sh*t is no excuse for that.
