Hi to everyone reading,

 

since WG forces the WGC on me, I accept this challenge!

 

I will challenge myself to not load another piece of software and see how long I can resist the urge to playing WoWS.

 

The latest days showed me that WoWS isnt the game it used to be and will never be (maybe it never was what I imagined? Who knows?). In fact it will get worse imho. 

But how do you gonna stop playing if its so easy to just start the game and give in to the urge?

WG helped me! 

If I want to play now I have to install sth. otherwise I cant play anymore. 

Thanks WG :)

 

P.S.: Im a beta-player with extended pauses during the years but managed to get my favourite lines to T10. Now they are useless cause of powercreep, another reason :)

And 57% wr make me not your average potato (<50%), but a potato with a hat.

 

When there is an option to get my WoWS account transferred to steam (which I use since it was est. in 2003) I would gladly use this. But I wont install another merchandise-plattform.

You don't even need the launcher to launch the game. All you need it for is updating the game for patches... 

 

Btw, you won't play any game on steam without having to instal steam first. Just saying...

When they are useless to you, then you are playing them wrong. For example Des Moines is the strongest Tier X silver CA at the moment.

And that is with Venezia being played by more Veteran players as she is relativly new and DM being the third most played Cruiser at Tier X (1st Smolensk, 2nd Hindenburg, Venezia is 7th).

Do you have a problem with reading or understanding? You must be one of the 95 % of WoWS players that cant manage to win half of their games.

 

See WG, when players that visit your forums cant even read a short paragraph without missing viable information how could they ever be able to manage or participate in a teameffort with uneven odds?

 

Like I wrote I use steam since 2003 and wont install ANOTHER platform.

I liked playing Des Memes, until WG made a meme out of Des Memes Anti-air.

 

I'd say anybody who has no stalingrad plays des moines / venezia /moskva, and when you have the stalin you dont need any other. Probably a few more stalingrads to be seen after the steel-sellout with goliath.

More avarage XP, more avarage kills and a lot more avarage dmg. Basically all stats are better, only win rate is slightly higher on DM, wich is only atributed to the radar. Venezia is the better ship.

You were pointing out were Venezia is better and I was pointing out why DM wins more. Nothing else.

The ship that wins more, is the better ship. Especially when the weaker ship is played by the stronger players on average.

In 10,000 games, by those percentages, the DM is winning 15 more games than the Venezia. In the meantime, the Venezia (at 92 extra XP per game on average) is earning 920,000 more XP than the DM. I'd prefer the 'worse' ship, personally.

You can play what you want. Everyone has preferences. I personally prefer the Bismarck to the Vladi. But I would never claim that Bismarck is stronger than Vladi.

WoWS had a simple launcher, which I used to update. basically no features in that but updates and links to the news. Totally sufficient for what i needed and wanted.

I started WoWs with a shortcut to the *.exe in steam as a -non-steam-game since WG wasnt able to switch WoWS accounts to steam when they offered it there. So I have no general problem with launchers.

 

I use this rare occasion when a gamedev makes a questionable decision (forcing a not needed piece of monetization-software on me) to try quitting a game I dumped a lot of time in and I have a hard time avoiding since the access with the old launcher was so easy. 

 

Maybe the launcher is just the hurdle I needed, Ill see in a few weeks.

So can you in fact. But we're not talking about the Bismarck and the Vladi, we're talking about a marginal difference in one category and a sizeable one in another of comparable importance for the DM and the Venezia. If you choose to prioritise win rate over XP gain, that's your business as well, but I would never claim based on those numbers that the DM is the 'stronger' ship.

In a team based competition, winning counts.

 

When a soccer team ends up with one more point at the end of the season than the second team, they are still the champions. Even if the second team scored more goals and won all matches against the champions and the players of the second team earn more money.

If a soccer team ends up with one more win (technically one and a half) than another team over 1000 matches, that counts. In a season, they won't play anywhere near that number and so they wouldn't statistically have won any more at all. If the other team has better goal difference, that lack of extra wins means the first team will not be the champions. The difference in the win rates between those two ships is not significant enough to make much or any difference to any one player (those who play 10k+ games in them excepted), whereas the XP difference is.

 

Aside from anything else, the primary reward for winning in this team game is extra XP; the Venezia makes more than enough over the DM that the advantage from notional extra wins is easily eclipsed.

 

In statistics, numbers (ahah) count. Although I admit I wouldn't want to play football against you if you turned up with a Des Moines.

That is not how soccer works.

The primary reward for winning is winning. When you play primarily for XP, I know where your problem is.
