    Merry Christmas folks!

    T’was the night before mooring and all through the ship, not a contact was stirring not even a blip. When up on the main deck, there stirred such a clatter, I looked up and saw a jolly old man come down the ladder. Dressed in red with a long white beard so lively and quick, I knew in a moment he must be St. Nick. Then suddenly from aft I heard another sound, I turned and faced it and saw a pile of coal on the ground. Behind the pile was a large green fella, singing so loud in a capella. I knew right away in a quick pinch, it was that angry, grumpy stingy ole grinch. Hope you all had a good 2020 (definitely feel like it's STILL 2020, JST SAYIN), Hapa Holidays folks!

    Welcome our new Community Manager, Ahskance

    A great analytic mind to be added to the team! GG!
  6. hey i tried to message you? does this work?

    Could this thread be re-opened, moved into Off-Topic please? I don't think I even have the two wallpapers I put here anymore, they are on the broken rig.


  7. Mate...I am considering a screen name change. The one I want is free and I know about the 1200 dubs. But several in my clan have said I would "loose my account"? Why? How? And assuming I don't loose anything except a few dubs, then the only other hassles would be relinking my PayPal, VPN and etc...correct? I can continue to use my current login correct? Anything else I would need (should) know 1st sir?

    Many thanks! BasqueJacque

      Hapa is retired Basque...



      Is there anyway to help the OP on his issue ?

  8. Why is WG persisting with this?? If you are soo desperate for subs then please put them in their own game play like Brawls. It is now going to be high stress in Co-op because of subs.

      @Hapa_Fodder left his job as "Community Manager" or Liaison or whatever the official title was.  Next person in line is @Mademoisail, I think.

  9. Two of us have tried to enter this Santa mission and give-away...NOTHING....its broken lies again (Puerto Rico comes to mind among others). Sorry but this stuff is nonsense. My partner plays through her Steam account and can't get this offer...period.

    I enter through the normal n/a server and I get blank screens and that's it... No missions - zero. 6 hours of trying and again nothing for this fake offer.

    There is NO Santa in July around here.

      Leave Hapa alone... The guy has never for WG in the month of July...

    PTS 0.10.6

    Folks, Thank you for all your feedback. As for the rewards of community tokens, as we have stated quite often the rewards for PTS do not get dropped onto your main account until the PTS sessions are over (typically a week or so). Some of the bugs you have reported belong in the Bug Report section btw. -Hapa

    Changes to Grand Battles

    I mean Grand Battles has been live for almost 3 weeks, most people should have played by now. That being said I do understand where you are coming from but if someone doesn't have a tier IX yet, it could be good incentive to get one. That being said, not everyone is interested in Grand Battles either. -Hapa

    Changes to Grand Battles

    Commanders! We have increased the number of Intelligence Reports required to go into the Grand Battle at the helm of a super battleship from 14 to 16. We also removed the daily invoice of 3 Intelligence Reports. The changes will improve the situation with long waiting times in the queue and an increased number of bots in Grand Battle. Good luck in battles! Mahalo, -Hapa

    Fair Winds and Following seas.

    Folks, Let me make something abundantly clear. I don't know where the idea that I didn't give a 2 weeks notice came from (it is the internet afterall). The team has known about me leaving for WEEKS. Me moving on was purely my choice because I am a workaholic and tend to give 150% into everything I do professionally, this tends to lend to burn out at times, I recognized this when I was nearing 22 yrs in the Navy and I recognized it recently now. I would like to actually live and enjoy life some for the first time. I know it's hard to believe that someone at my age (a young 41) can completely retire, but I set myself up before I retired from the Navy to be able to do this. And my intention now, since I have seen the world, is to see this country, spend time with my parents and brother since I have missed out on almost 25 years of their lives and RELAX. There is no "scandal" there is no "drama." And I don't appreciate some of the speculation I have seen out there on why I am leaving. I love the opportunities that Wargaming and the World of Warships team have given me over the past almost two years, I still could not imagine doing this for any other company. I have made some amazing friendships in this position and value them deeply. To the community, thank you SO MUCH from the bottom of my heart for all the kind words. I sincerely appreciate all of you and look forward to continuing to chat and engage with you in game! My last day with Wargaming is the 6th and my tags will be removed at that time if y'all would like to get ahold me, feel free to PM me on Discord or any of the channels listed on my profile. Mahalo, -Hapa
