    Please make Dasha captains available

    Soon(tm) They won't skimp on chances to get extra dough.

    Super Container haul, what did you get?

    From my lone T10 (Yamato) is 50 HALLOWEEN paint. This only strengthen my resolve to call it quits.

    Is this game actually fun?

    Come to think of it, I haven't been back for a long time since the changes to carriers...I did got into the invitational round of testing and, well, it wasn't very fun, and it carries over to live, grinding two tiers' worth of EXP in tier 4 where you literally can't participate in anything is extremely tedious...so I took off and back to the home that is the skies...

    An Idea: Unified Event Currency

    Planes already do that with their tokens... It might work, just make them very hard to obtain in numbers and it should be fine...

    Steel and Coal, a problem

    ...and they thought they did this to discourage hoarding...people will keep hoarding as long as there's something to strive for. It has to altogether cease.
  6. The hoarding is never done as long as new contents continue to be added...
  7. Technically all ship in this game are steamers...so um, if you have crews from sailing ships you're supposed to have discount?
  8. I'm one of those Planes players that have got to a few tier 10s and have advanced far in most tech trees. They didn't retroactively add the specialist status or even progression based on whatever metrics there is, rendering an existing player having to effectively re-grind their planes to get to optimal level (new players would have to start from zero anyway), and even then it's not cut and dry as there are tradeoffs that come with equipments leading to both optimal and suboptimal customizations. While it's not as nuch a problem for those hardcore players that can reel in wins and big results, the infrequent player will suffer, although player skill still factor somewhat significantly in operating the planes...handling, tactics, and good luck with the bots still can claim victory from disadvantaged state. From what I've read NTC takes the regrinding up to 11 by having to relinquish everything in a given tree and start anew from tier 1...given that it's not uncommon for Ships' matches to run the full 20 minutes or well over 15 minutes (in comparison, Planes' matches are 12 minutes maximum and death becomes permanent after 7) and the major EXP boosters do not grow on trees without paying $, it only add slog for the less frequent players and cries selling more boosters to those who can afford, or perhaps free EXP conversion...that or you play 24/7 to get back to where you were, albeit more powerful. Ask yourself this: How long did it take you to get to just one tier 10, and have you spent any money in doing so? From there think whether going back up is worth it. The answer is there.

    My ammo is defective! LOL

    Type 1 wants to have a word.
  10. Anything T8 will do...seriously. I used to have my carrier captain on my Kidd (i.e. I had nothing that benefits except Concealment and Priority target and actual debuff in torp acceleration) to grind both silver and elite EXP, so anything can work if you really persist on it. The cheap maintenance will get you far, but you still need to do well to get big bucks.

    Your LEAST played premium ships?

    Everything tier 4 and below save for the Pickle. Really stupid that everything tier 4 and below cannot participate in anything AT ALL.

    Million credit club: Cossack

    Cossack is great for any gunboat enthaustiscs...4 twins means you outgun many DDs and single-fire torpedo means you have more option in torpedo dropping despite having only one set.

    The "Game of Your Life"

    Why Jean Bart is worth every piece of coal: I was in a hurry to get the Da Rong grind done and this happened...

    So, I like to save free XP...

    The free EXP prem ship is truly an incentive to hoard all the free EXP, going as far as to endure stock grind in tier 9 in something very module dependent like the Tashkent. ...it's THAT much incentive...

    Best ship line to hunt destroyers?

    Soviet mainline gunboats aren't exactly good at directly fighting DDs but it can say screw concealment, turn on speed boost, and sling away with impunity as enemies try to crank up their lead on you - something other DD lines can't really boast. The branch line gets railguns right from tier 8 but concealment is a little on high side and the gun numbers are lower.
