    Got my first chat ban

    Two wrongs don’t make a right.
  2. Nice guide, OP. I think I’ll link it to my list of resources for new players.

    Things a newbie might think

    His post was from almost a year ago. Still, it’s a very impressive tally. I wonder if s/he has found a way to overcome those early game difficulties s/he could share for others??
  4. You know, I came to this thread fully expecting to see a Willy-based joke, such as giving her a “unique” camo or flag option, perhaps with added debauchery like releasing it on Valentine’s Day. Instead, you made an interesting and historically based suggestion. I like it! I am assuming that it wouldn’t have its own smoke generator, so you’d be reliant on your team more for that heal?

    About HMS Repulse...

    Sorry, that just sounded funny given the name of the ship…

    Abused Reporting System

    Well, they got you angry enough to make a rant post on the forums, so I guess the kids won this round. More seriously, it really is quite easy to build karma in this game. I am approaching 1000 and I have been chatbanned a couple of times (apparently using an R word to describe someone with significantly below average intellect constitutes a ban in WG’s eyes, whereas it was standard playground fare when I was growing up…) and I talk openly in matches, I ask people to join me in a push, I ask people to stop dying so we can win the game etc. this makes me suspect the problem is actually you and thus you’ve earnt it. Or you play CV, where a vocal minority of the player base feels like you are grieving them so they use the report function to discourage you playing CV. WG won’t care about that though.

    Tier VI Burn out

    I like T6 - I think it is one of the better balanced tiers and you don’t have to worry about matching radars. And the Leander is just so much fun!! But, I understand your point. Pretty sure WG is changing ranked to be boring old T10 again to cater to the majority who just like taking out those ships and nothing else. So you’ll start getting your wishes fulfilled. But I seriously doubt they’ll bring in new Operations - at least anytime soon, sadly. WG seems to have decided PVP is where the action is.

    can't find the button for

    That is correct. Doesn’t make sense to me either.

    Looking for a Premium T6/7 Cruiser for my Kids

    The Scharnhorst is very good, I can’t comment on the Weimar as I haven’t played her but based on what Haze and others have said sounds like a good fit. Still, you might want to consider De Grasse as a growth option if they start playing PVP. De Grasse can fight at long ranges and has speed, which makes her survivable outside of coop. Maybe in a few years time…

    Finally noticed the conversion prompt.

    What? How does WG dig into my pocket by proving me a resource as I play the game that I can use to buy a premium ship using coal instead of real $$$ in the premium shop?
  11. Yes, because MM cares so much about you and only you that it will be punitive. And glad you made a second thread about it too in case I find myself under Sauron’s harsh gaze.

  12. Look, I realise that you’re one salty dude, and you weren’t the only one who worked the long weekend. But seriously, does anyone from the NSW south coast need to ask this question? No, they just crack open a few and get on with it. Seriously, what is wrong with you??!?

    How to get free doubloons

    At present, there is no mechanism to do this. Also, selling premium ships is generally a bad idea - you only get silver for them, and it is possible that any supercontainer or free premium ship container will just reward that same ship again rather than something new that you could want more. As such, I can never recommend it. For new players reading this thread, I have copied some information below that might be of assistance - in particular have a look at the last dot point for guides on how to earn free premium ships. Hope this helps.

    King George V, grind or skip?

    I understand how you feel, but I suggest keeping your free XP in case the monarch frustrates the hell out of you more, like it did with me. With the KGV, remember to ripple fire over enemy BBs so you rake them now to stern with hits - more often than not each salvo will start 2 fires and sometimes more, making them use DCP, which will come off cool down just in time for your next salvo to land. If it’s a T9 BB, then that damage prints Xp too, and you can use your decent stealth to go dark and spare your Hp for later. Also, agree with what Haze said.

    4 to 8% popularity???

    Interesting. xHeavy got deleted. I wonder if because of the heresy that CVs are not a problem like you quoted above?? ;-)
