    LWM resigns from the CC Program!

    What can I say. WG is acting in the best traditions of the Byelorussian Navy. On to LWM Patreon.
  2. , or why evolution works so much slower than it otherwise could TLDR unless a biology nut WOWS is a biology lab, among other things. It demonstrates natural selection and artificial selection at work, q.v.: Evolution and natural selection review (article) | Khan Academy As well as this fascinating differential equation: Microsoft Word - Notes-Predator-Prey.doc (psu.edu) A predator with truly upscale skills would soon run out of prey, is the short read. In WOWS, the deity, which we’ll call Minsk, steps in before that happens, because prey is its bread and butter too, so to speak. So Minsk cuts the predator’s reproduction rate, and the prey recover. BALANS is restored more quickly than in nature, where, absent Minsk, prey are eaten and predators starve, until there are more prey than predators, and, if enough predators have survived to breed, the wild differential equation dance begins again. youk
  3. What's 100k coal worth today in game terms? Right now, you can get the Pommern in the Armory for 228,000 coal or 19,300 gold. That means that at 252.53g/$1, the Pommern costs $76.43 or 228,000 coal, ergo 100,000 coal = 100,000*(76.43/228,000), or $33.52 in game terms. At the in game rate of 1g:1,500s, $33.52 buys you 33.52*252.53*1500, or 12,697,208 silver, thus that's the value of 100k coal in silver at the current game exchange rates, though you can't buy it for that of course. Right now, though, you can get 62,500,000 silver in the Armory for $100. $100*(12,697,208/62,500,000)=$20.31. Since that silver's %40 off, coal at auction's a bargain for the players short silver--at least compared to the players who will convert their silver at 100%, vs the 60% off players. Silver whales will pay $33.52 in silver vs. $20.31 for those who take advantage of the 40% off. Slick But even at the 40% discount, 25,000,000 in silver = 25/62.5 *$100, or $40--even the plebs, even if they get hit at the minimum bid, will be paying almost exactly double the price of 100k of coal--$20.31--at the in-game exchange rates. But of course you can't buy it there... "The road had no intrinsic value. It was worth whatever anyone was willing to pay for it on any given day" Jay Gould Just an old bond geek still into price discovery, youk

  5. When you choose a ship, you are taking 2 slots in the OB for the upcoming battle--your and your ship's effectiveness. The MM will consider the power of your ship, but not your effectiveness, but both will definitely impact the outcome of the battle. If you are a weak player and bring what the MM considers an OP ship to the battle, guess what? You are putting your side at a disadvantage proportionate to the OP of your ship. Took me a while to figure out why my WR in the LONDON was 89% with a destruction ration of .13, while my WR in the NIKOLAI was 31% with a 1.74 destruction ratio.
