    German battlecruiser line

    Actually no kidding about it, Scharnhorst really is exactly in the same class as the Alaska, Kronstdat and Azuma and really should be in game. Actually, after the Scharnhorst was released, I really was expecting these "Super Cruisers" to all come into the game at Tier 7 or 8 as battleship line premiums and was shocked as hell that they came out as Tier 9 as as cruisers no less. Personally I would love to see the Scharnhorst raised up to Tier 9, given it back its is historical accuracy on its guns (The 11-inch guns used by the Scharnhorst were some of the most accurate guns used in WWII) and designated a Cruiser alongside the ships that were actually extremely similar to it, the Alaska, Azuma and Kronstdat.
  2. Ok, so the Alaska is out....Woot!!! Except despite having almost $83.00 worth of doubloons sitting on my account I can't buy it. I mean it is only $79.94 in the premium shop but my $83.00 of doubloons is worthless there. I know, I will just covert XP to get it except 20,250 doubloons only coverts to 506,250 FXP or half the amount I need to buy the Alaska with Free XP. At the end of the day, I am sitting on $83.00 of worthless digital coin because it won't allow me to buy the product I want to buy. It really gives me the warm and fuzzies to know that, let me tell you. WG, knock it off already. I have already gave you my money, let me spend it on the things I want to buy. The ironic part is if I can spend the money I already have invested in the game, I will probably give you more money, but if that money I am giving you just ends up going to waste because I can't spend it, I sure the hell ain't giving you more.

    Alaska price confirmed. 1 mil free XP

    Yeah I agree. 1 million is getting pretty out there. I usually use the gold I get from the Santa's Gift to buy whatever Free XP ship there is available and have 20k gold just sitting on my account. However that only converts 500k XP. grinding the other 250k is doable but 500k is going to take some serious effort.

    Just opened x80 mega crates

    Honestly, Mega Boxes have proven year after year that they aren't the best value. The Big Gifts are where it is at. I spent $100 of the Big Gifts and got 6 ships valued at $198 if you were going to buy them off the cash shop. I also got an additional 8000 in gold so before camos, flags, coal, etc I got a 234% return on my investment. If I was just counting ship and comparing my results to the OP if I was to continue buying and spent $300, then I should score around 18 ships total or almost twice the rate of return that the OP did with Mega Boxes. Santa Boxes have always been about numbers. The more you buy the better the value gets. If you give up (or run out of money) too early, chances are your returns will be a bit meh. In fact, I didn't get any of the ships I wanted until I had about $85 invested and honestly if I want or decide to continue with my purchases, at this point chances are for just a relatively small additional investment, I would hit the 2-3 other ships I am interested in simply because they are about the only ones left on my list that I don't own.

    Choose your own ship in santa crates

    Actually, you are wrong. They would sell alot less because people would cherry pick the ships they wanted. The reason you are wrong is because you are underestimating how many people will keep buying crates over and over in their desire to chase a specific ship. Combine that with the fact that you are absolutely getting a great value out of the boxes you are buying, even if they aren't that specific ship your looking for and the number of boxes purchase will soar. Honestly, this is the best promotion I have ever seen in a game of this type. You really do get much more than you spend which provides the players with an incentive to keep purchasing boxes. It is the best of both worlds for Wargaming as the program is in the majority generally perceived as offering excellent value for the money spent, while also generating huge amounts of revenue in the process.

    Why you will never get Missouri

    Actually, your chances of getting a Missouri are all dependant on how many premium ships you own. If you already own all the premium ships on the list except Missouri, then your chances of getting a Missouri are actually pretty high considering I have hit one ship for every 6 boxes I have opened so far. If you own everything else, you basically would only have to hit one ship, one time to guarantee a Missouri. If you don't have the majority of premium ships on the list, then yeah, hunting for the Missouri alone is going to require quite the investment. Also, the overall value of the Santa's gifts are relatively high. Out of $100 spent and while I did get a Krispy Kream, I also got two Tier 8 DDs, 1 Tier 7 DD, 1 Tier 7 CL, 1 Tier 6 DD as well totaling $198 if bought off the cash shop. I also got 8000 gold. That is a $234 dollar value right there not including the camos and flags so even though 2 of the ships I received aren't something I will likely play all that much if at all, I still got my money's worth. So you can call it weak-willed or whatever all you want, but I have did the math and can honestly say that the Santa Crates you are complaining about are easily the best deal I have ever seen in a game with a cash shop. This program, without a doubt, has allowed me to own literally dozens of ships I really enjoy playing, that I never could have afforded to own at full price even if they were always available for purchase. So I am sorry you didn't figure out a way to take advantage of acquiring the Missouri when it was available for purchase but I absolutely love this program despite getting a few port queens when participating in it.

    Santa Container Survey

    So far not doing too badly. Roughly $75 spend and got 4 ships and 7k gold plus the other various camos and flags Ships: Asashio Nueve de Julio Krasny Krym Le Terrible Not the best ships but when you consider I have like 80% of the list and most of the better ones, I guess this isn't bad. Wanted a T-61, Z-39 and Gascogne though.

    Warspite vs QE

    Yep, they are for all intents and purposes exactly the same.
  9. Whelp the economy is going to take a pretty big hit it looks like. If I would have had to pay state sales tax from Newegg the last time I upgraded my computer it would have cost me around $105 more due to tax. That is going to keep alot of people from buying alot of stuff which in turn can only hurt the economy overall.
  10. I would go with the Alabama over the Scharnhorst. Tier 8s have the best return on income, plus you already mentioned you like it. Also overall there really isn't much difference between an Alabama and a Missouri or Iowa. The pretty much have the exact same guns and even a similar armor scheme and protection when you get right down to it. Basically they uptier extremely well so there really isn't any reason to be concerned about seeing Tier 10s in fact you will probably get bigger rewards just because your in a Tier 10 match. Scharnhorst is a ton of fun though, that I have to admit. It just won't earn you as many credits as the Alabama.
  11. You know it isn't even about being nice or if the criticism is valid or not, it is just about dealing with the fact people have different view points and personalities. I mean it isn't like this person is in your face telling you off, it is through a chat box that you can actually turn off. You can also block a player if I am not mistaken. Getting bent out of shape or your feelings hurt by a person you don't know and probably don't care to know on the other end of an internet connection is just plain crazy. Going to the length of reporting someone because they happen to be salty over a match gone bad or whatever in my opinion is just as toxic and they might have been.
  12. Be an adult, realize that its just words and ignore it. Seriously, people need to get some thicker skin, way to much, "Mommy, Mommy the bad man said bad words to me...sniffle, sniffle, cry, cry".

    Ship prices in Steel and Coal

    Yeah it is really nice to be punished yet again for not being part of a Clan.

    why does t6 get EFFED by mm?

    This is exactly the situation. That Tier 3 and 4 special Match Maker spread screws up the entire progression and so, SO many people have commented on it, even begged and pleaded it get reverted back to normal but WG still ignores the issue. However, I really never felt at a disadvantage when playing Tier 6 anything. Generally speaking Tier 6 is when ships start getting fairly powerful and I feel most tier 6 ships can uptier and perform well even against Tier 8 ships in the 40% or so of matches where the majority of ships are Tier 7 and 8. Tier 5 however gets stuck with around 80-90% of it matching being against Tier 6 or 7 and generally speaking tier 5s can't even remotely compete against Tier 7s and kind of struggle against tier 6s. Tier 8 is kind of tough as well but not as tough as most people like to make out. Generally speaking tier 8 and 9 aren't too far apart on the power scale but Tier 9 and 10 are miles apart so when your a Tier 8 mostly fighting in a predominately Tier 10 match your definitely at a disadvantage. If I had to rate them from hardest to easiest. Tier 5 Tier 6 Tier 8 Tier 9 Tier 7
  15. Hmm. Lets see. If you have torpedoes on your left, friendly or otherwise and if you go left your going to get wrecked by those torpedoes and you go left away, how is that the fault of the player that fired the torpedoes. If you don't see the torpedoes it is one thing but if you know they are there you might want to try to avoid them. Honestly though, it isn't really anyone's fault and it is even less the cruisers fault if he fired the torpedoes in good faith with the belief that you would not be in the line of fire and even warns you not to turn left because he has torps running. Seriously, in random battles you don't have good communication or coordination going on so you can only act in ways that look correct to you at the time. If you have a DD in front and he zigs like he is turning right thus clearing your line of fire for a torpedo launch and you fire, you can't be held responsible for that destroyer deciding to zag left into the path of your torpedoes the second after you fire them. In fact I would go as far as saying that everyone has the responsibility of insuring they aren't obstructing their teammates ability to engage the enemy to the best of their ability. Of course this goes both ways and you shouldn't be doing anything obviously risky either. Basically it comes down to being mindful of your teammates and surrounding.
