    No, this emblem is awarded when you first hit a total of 350 ships currently in port, including rentals. Up until this morning, there were a total of 15 possible rental ships we could have had in port. So it sounds like you got the emblem for the 350, then fell back when your rental periods expired. Fortunately, you don't lose the emblem once you fall back like that.

    Kawanishi H8K: The Turns of Fate

    Saw one of these in mothballs in Virginia as a kid, probably at or near Norfolk.

    Update 0.10.10: Superships

    Exchange them for Coal. Sometimes you get supership rentals but the next day you'll get 100 Coal.

    Naval Christmas Story Contest!

    Best one yet. And not just because it's short enough to read.
  6. Yesterday, I completed missions 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 13, 14 and 16. #4 and 5 also showed as active, possibly others, which I did not attempt. I put in a ticket to "Support" (always makes me laugh) asking for confirmation since this poorly thought-out event gives you none. It was pretty clear I had interrupted some neo-Soviet Pootin' worker stooge in the middle of his borscht donut, as he snapped back, "Pay your attention [sic]! Only 6 missions are active!" There will be no confirmation!" Then he attached a link to the same news article that has caused all this confusion in the first place. So, WG's approach to explaining a confusing situation is to repeat themselves word-for-word. Then, when their player base gets salty, they put out news articles demanding more respect. It's The Computer Age. The Information Age. The Digital Age. And for all Humanity's progress, I'm tracking my own mission progress with pencil and paper.

    This is for mission 13 and 14?

    Naval Christmas Story Contest!

    It was Christmas Eve and my first cruise. We were on the Ionian Sea with no land in sight. A dove flew low overhead and dropped a sprig of mistletoe. I rigged it securely to the front of my hat and closed my eyes. I was in a Busby Berkeley musical number and each dancer paused in front of me just long enough to... Wait, limited to how many words?

    I get email notifications when comments are made in threads I follow in Forum, so I just click on a link. While finding this thread has never been a problem for me, I sincerely applaud you listening to these players and acting on their requests. It's very refreshing. Thank you! o7

    I thought the $1 per month got us 500 Doubloons, 1M Credits and 15K credits for a duplicate collection item.

    OMG! This collection is from nearly two years ago! So long I had forgotten about it. Great for new players, but yet another edit you to the game's veterans.

    Started walking through the process just to see what would be involved, and came to this: Make sure you trust na.wargaming.net Um....

    Saw no mention of how many elements are in the collection. If WG programmers STILL haven't figured out how to prevent duplicate drops, will the exchange rate be one-to-one? No mention of this either. Depending on the number of elements total, and if the exchange rate is greater than one-to-one, this collection would take years to complete. Once completed (again, years from now) the final reward is Commander Cap. How many skill points will he have? Twenty-one, to reward our patience? Again, no mention. Although this news article just came out this morning, it has three "Frequently Asked Questions" at the bottom. Who asked them? When?
