  1. Team Damage/kill appeal

    I agree with your statement @Jenska , but I think you meant to quote the OP, ShellBackl.
  2. A beloved WoWs community member who passed away last month. https://forum.worldofwarships.com/profile/1002955287-dseehafer/
  3. Aye. I think her ROF needs to be buffed down from 13 seconds to 10 seconds, which is the same as the current tier 9 German cruiser Roon and the French cruiser Saint-Louis, both of which are armed with 203 mm caliber guns. I also think her max gun range needs to be boosted from a base of 14.1 km with the Mk9 mod 1 Gun Fire Control System to 15.6 (which is what the GFCS mod 2 upgrade increases it to currently), and then that mod 2 upgrade boosted to 17.1 km. That being said, the way the heavy cruisers are going to play in WoWs to the higher RoF light cruisers in the current meta is not going to be for everybody.
  4. I've enjoyed playing the Buffalo on the PTS so far. She feels like a beast at tier IX. Yes. @CWO4_Maverick is correct, that her reload is a wee bit slow, but I was able to get it down to 11.4 seconds with the Main Battery Mod 3 upgrade. Grabbing Adrenaline Rush as one of the Commander skills could help later on in battle as well after she has taken some damage. But I love those twelve 203 mm guns. She punishes cruisers that dare to show any broadside. Her Repair Party and ability to heal HP helps to mitigate damage she receives when going up against cruisers with a higher ROF like the tier 8 Cleveland, especially since a lot of those ships will be firing HE at her.
  5. I thought it would hinder her, but her AA seems to be just fine without the fighter, and I would rather have the radar at tier 8 anyway.
  6. While it is true that the Operation Scenarios were being milked to a degree, I wouldn't necessarily call it "easy mode." Operations prior to WG increasing their difficulty level took more teamwork than you find in any of the other battle modes to complete with five-stars. I've never seen a "garbage team" five-star one. Those were the ones you would only get 1 to 3 stars. And the Ultimate Frontier was challenging to five-star before the added wave and bot buffs, especially if there were a two to three players who were new to that particular Op and didn't know what to do. Personally, I enjoy the increased difficulty, and I look forward when WG enables the ability to select "hard" mode for the Operation Scenarios. LOL. They did both. WG added another wave of bot ships to Ultimate Frontier in addition to buffing those bots. If you notice, the bots have some signal flags mounted, and I'm pretty sure they are running at least 15-point bot captains on them. Five-starring Ultimate Frontier is definitely more difficult. I think the best way to do so is with a 7-man division. While it can be five-starred without doing so, it takes everybody working as a well-oiled team and any new players to the Op listening to the experienced players. Even then, sometimes you just get screwed over by the behavior of the bots. Also, if your team loses a couple of cruisers in the beginning before they make it over to the aerodrome on the atoll, it is almost a guarantee that you are not going to five-star the Op and it will be difficult to just complete. As far as ships for Ultimate Frontier... The Fiji maybe the best and useful cruiser to select, and I don't own either of these two premiums but the Belfast along with the Atlanta with its high ROF also do well. A player who knows how to handle a Russian glass cannon can do well in the Shchors. As far as BBs go, I've had success with the Colorado and the premium UK BB, the Nelson. The King George and Duke of York would likely be a better option over the Nelson, though, as she is faster and more mobile. I don't have either of the tier 7 German BBs, but for those that have the Gneisenau or own the premium Scharnhorst, both seem to do really well. Their speed is an advantage over the Nelson and especially the Colorado. I am not a big fan of DDs for the Ultimate Frontier, but if someone brings one, Gadjah Mada or Leningrad,
  7. Should I buy the Cleveland?

    If you currently own the Cleveland, when the first part of the USN cruiser split in update 0.7.5 goes live, which should be before the end of the month, then you will get the following... (note: for anyone that doesn't yet have the Cleveland, it is worth trying to get before 0.7.5 update goes live) From @Gneisenau013's PTS 0.7.5 notes post, link at bottom. "Ship replacement rules in detail: Cleveland If you researched the Tier VI cruiser Cleveland, you will get a researched Tier VI cruiser Pensacola and Tier VIII cruiser Cleveland. Tier VI cruiser Pensacola will come with the same researched modules as the ones researched on Cleveland. On the Tier VIII cruiser Cleveland, only stock modules will be researched. Players that already have the Tier VI cruiser Cleveland get: The Tier VI cruiser Pensacola (in the same build as Cleveland). All commanders and XP earned with cruiser Cleveland will be transferred to the Tier VI cruiser Pensacola. Also, players get the Tier VIII cruiser Cleveland in stock build and a Commander with 8 skill points for the ship. Camouflages: If you have the standard permanent camouflage for Cleveland, you get the standard permanent camouflage for the Tier VI cruiser Pensacola and the standard permanent camouflage for the Tier VIII cruiser Cleveland. If you already have any of the permanent camouflages, your duplicate will be exchanged for a refund in credits in the amount equivalent to its cost in Doubloons. If you have the New Year permanent camouflage for Cleveland, you get the New Year permanent camouflage for the Tier VIII cruiser Cleveland only."
  8. While WG can make any adjustments they deem necessary from the public test server (PTS) and the time 0.7.5 goes live, the adjustments usually made are in the form of bug fixes and tweaks to the stats of ships based on the feedback from the super testers and those that participate on the PTS. As far as the Cleveland moving from tier 6 to tier 8 and owners of said Cleveland getting a tier 6 Pensacola and the new up-tiered Cleveland with a port slot and 8 point commander, that is pretty much set in stone as of the release notes for PTS 0.7.5 round 2. Cleveland If you researched the Tier VI cruiser Cleveland, you will get a researched Tier VI cruiser Pensacola and Tier VIII cruiser Cleveland. Tier VI cruiser Pensacola will come with the same researched modules as the ones researched on Cleveland. On the Tier VIII cruiser Cleveland, only stock modules will be researched. Players that already have the Tier VI cruiser Cleveland get: The Tier VI cruiser Pensacola (in the same build as Cleveland). All commanders and XP earned with cruiser Cleveland will be transferred to the Tier VI cruiser Pensacola. Also, players get the Tier VIII cruiser Cleveland in stock build and a Commander with 8 skill points for the ship. Camouflages: If you have the standard permanent camouflage for Cleveland, you get the standard permanent camouflage for the Tier VI cruiser Pensacola and the standard permanent camouflage for the Tier VIII cruiser Cleveland. If you already have any of the permanent camouflages, your duplicate will be exchanged for a refund in credits in the amount equivalent to its cost in Doubloons. If you have the New Year permanent camouflage for Cleveland, you get the New Year permanent camouflage for the Tier VIII cruiser Cleveland only. You can read the full 0.7.5 notes here: You can also watch the most recent video from WG on the USN cruiser line split and update 0.7.5. https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/common/dev-diaries-usa-arc/
  9. You get rewards as codes via email when the update officially hits. Public Test Rewards are typically enabled the first Friday or weekend after any update. You can expect to see an email after they're issued, or check the reward site.
  10. which line comes after USN CLs?

    I'm hoping for the cruisers of the Regia Marina. Followed by the Royal Navy destroyers.
  11. CLs between Omaha and Cleveland?

    Yes. WG has released that info and the Community Contributors have done some videos on them. None of the new US light cruisers will have torpedos. The new USN light cruisers will be: Tier VI Dallas - wiki link http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Dallas Tier VII Helena - wiki link http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Helena Cleveland of course is moving to tier VIII Tier IX Seattle - wiki link http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Seattle Tier X Worcester - wiki link http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Worcester Here is the WG news release: https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/common/us-cruisers-changes/ EDIT: Here is a video from Mejash on the Dallas
  12. The St.Louis class cruiser is a piece of junk.

    Well... Of course, they look different and play different, lol. The St. Louis is a tier III light cruiser which is from the turn of the 20th century before WW1. The "namesake" of the class began being built in July 1902 and rolled out of dry dock in 1905. She served in the USN till March 1922 when she was decommissioned. She wasn't a small ship for a cruiser at 426 feet in length and a 66-foot beam with a standard displacement of 9,900 tons. The Cleveland is a tier 6 light cruiser, soon to be tier 8 when update 0.7.5 goes live, which was laid down in 1940 and launched in 1941. That is approximately a 40-year difference in the two ships. Just because a ship is built at prior to WW1 or during WW1 doesn't mean it isn't a " real warship," lol, but it's OK not to like a ship in WoWs. We all have played ships that we didn't particularly like. I just don't know why you feel the need to have to let us all know once a week. I mean, you can grind on up past tier 4 on the USN cruiser line or pay the USN BBs if you want. Not trying to shame you but I'm not sure why you have decided to stay in tiers 1-4 since you started playing in November 2016. No one is making you stay in those tiers. If you want to play a "real warship" as you deem it, then work your way past the lower tiers and get the ship you want to play.
  13. What is your Karma score right now

    It was over 50 last time I checked. I usually compliment top performers on my team and rarely use the report function unless someone map-ping or quick command spams like a rabbit that has had chocolate covered espresso beans and did a line of blow. As of right now, since 0.6.6, the only thing Karma does is allow you more compliments/reports per day. http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Update_0.6.6 Karma We've increased the daily limit for compliments and reports. Now, once a you've achieved a certain Karma level, your daily limit will also increase: Karma Level Limit on reports and compliments 0 - 19 7 reports and 7 compliments 20 - 49 8 reports and 8 compliments 50 - 79 9 reports and 9 compliments 80 - 109 10 reports and 10 compliments > 110 11 reports and 11 compliments On the update’s release, a limit of reports and compliments will assign to players depending on their Karma level. And unless WG has changed it, you cannot get negative Karma. You can only go as low as a big fat zero. https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/common/052-arrives-patch-notes/ Karma System Karma is calculated as the difference between the number of compliments and reports received, and may not be less than zero. Karma is displayed by the player's nickname. It is prohibited to compliment and report players within the same Division. If a player is complimented or reported, a system message appears after a battle. The system message for reports will be displayed only if a player has been reported by at least two players. The system message for compliments will show the specific number of people who complimented you (without specifying their nicknames, however).
  14. Aye. I agree. Some things would be quite obvious like someone releasing a full broadside into a teammate at the start of the game as everyone starts to sail away from their spawn points or as you gave an example, someone being salty in chat or stating they shot another person on purpose, but most of the other incidents would be difficult to determine the intent of the person.
