  1. I remember back in April it was virtually impossible to get less than 3 stars, in May and now in June even winning with zero stars has become impossible. I've played Narai 4 times today and lost 3 after being overwhelmed in the harbor. What gives? It's frustrating because until May's rotation I don't recall Narai being anywhere near this difficult. We are at the point where only Aegis and Killer Whale are doable for a random team of players. Wargaming needs to either make the Operations doable for random teams or completely remove the mode from the game. You shouldn't need a division full of elite clan players to win. I'd even be willing to accept regular co-op levels of XP and credits in exchange for reduced difficulty.

    I had been having good luck with Narai thie past few days until this afternoon when I lost 2 Ops in a row. I'm really frustrated and I think I am done for the day. It really stings to get nearly 300k damage and 7 kills only for your team to melt away and end up in a defeat. It seems the three biggest problems are: 1) People that take ships that aren't appropriate for the mission: particularly destroyers and slow firing cruisers such as the New Orleans, the Algerie, the ARPs, etc. The best cruisers for Narai are the Belfast, the Fiji, and the Helena. 2) Overly aggressive battleship captains (usually in a Scharnhorst or a Gneisenau) that charge in and get blapped by torpedoes. A team generally needs 3+ battleships in order to win Narai. 3) The obvious one: lack of coordination. I've had Ops where 3+ ships rush off to attack the transports and there's nobody really escorting the convoy. IMO you need no more than 1 ship to get the transports (preferably a cruiser with a high rate of fire). I've also had Ops where a battleship goes after the carrier and predictably they end up getting nuked by the destroyer, a more nimble cruiser would be the best option ... again with a high rate of fire. Narai is a really easy and very simple operation, there's no excuse for a team to get less than 2 stars.

    World War One Operation/Scenario needed

    I would love a Tier 3/4/5 operation. I have alot of premium ships at those tiers that I rarely ever play.
  4. Or better yet allow the players to trade them in for the standard permanent camo. I'd like nothing to do with these space battles and sci-fi looking perma camos.

    Agreed, it took me over 20 minutes (normally it takes 5-10 minutes tops) to install this update. From what I am reading it seems the standard launcher (which I use) is faster than the WGC.
  6. I don't like these space/sci-fi perma camos, is it possible to sell them for doubloons or exchange them for the normal perma camo for the ship in question?

    Fix Defense of Newport Scenario

    I agree with those who say that Newport needs to be toned down. My personal belief is that a team of completely random players should be able to hope to win the Operation with at least 1 star at least half the time. When it comes to Newport and Ultimate Frontier in particular winning period is near impossible. My suggested fix for Newport would be to replace some of the destroyers with an additional battleship, particularly in the 2nd and 3rd waves.

    At least someone won ... I've been getting an endless stream of defeats largely as a result of teams made up of 2-3 destroyers and an aircraft carrier. Human controlled carriers should be removed from operations and destroyers need to be limited to 1 per team.

    Cap the # of destroyers in Operations

    I agree, I'm not saying it can't be done ... I'm just saying that the vast majority of players in a destroyer are more of a liability than an asset. It's my experience that most of the deaths before reaching the mountain range are players that sit in the smoke screen and then end up eating torpedoes from the Shimakaze's. I always urge players on my team to sail to the right for this reason, the old hands don't even need to be told. You can usually tell right away who on your team is an old hand and who just got their first tier 6.
  10. I have long advocated merging the Commonwealth premium ships into the British tech tree and allowing them to choose between flying the White ensign or the present day RCN, RAN, RNZN naval ensigns as a concession to national pride. I know our Canadian, Australian, and NZ posters may be upset with this but the reality is that at the time these countries armed forces were basically adjuncts of the British military and in many cases operated under British command. During WWII all of these countries still had British citizenship. They were ruled by a governor general who took his orders from the Foreign Office in London and NOT from the respective national government. How could they possibly be a separate tech tree?
  11. Can we please have a cap on the number of destroyers allowed in Operations to 1 per team or even remove the ability to take them into Operations entirely? I'm tired of losing easily winnable Operations because I'm stuck on a team with 3 destroyers and they just don't have the hitpoints and damage output to be viable (as bots easily evade their torpedoes). Look, I get that there are some really good destroyer captains out there and I myself have gotten some very good results in Killer Whale and Narai while in a destroyer but in most Operations even a single destroyer with an average at best captain is a massive liability. Please, spare me the screenshots of that one time you got really lucky.
  12. Can confirm ... it works for me as well

    Well this is new....

    Having the same problem as well. At first I was able to just hit play and then play as I normally would but then I stupidly decided to try and verify/repair the files in the client and now I can't play

    Who the hel is Da, Rong, Quan, Rong?

    Agreed, the late 1800s uniforms look waaaaaay out of place. Like you I'd prefer if they were wearing the standard Pan-Asian uniform.

    Operations: 5 out 9 Ops removed?!

    The cynic in me says your probably right
