    Pan-Asian BB!

    After just how absolutely rigged and tragic the xmas loot boxers were. I said I wouldn't buy anymore Warship containers. And idk why. I let my guard down, and grabbed a 10 pack of the Lunar New year containers. I got 0 ships as well. For almost 30 bucks.. not even a slap in face tier 6 or some crap. I got 8 days of premium. like 5 times. I got a bunch of silly camos. And I also got a Perma- camo for Siliwangi... which is a slap in the face. Thanks Wargaming - after what i spent on loot crates and now this. Im super excited to get out there and play my Yahagi!!
  2. Exactly.... In my initial post i said: "So then it's all just profit driven marketing!?!?! I'd like to see them do something to increase it's enjoyment, entertainment, and VALUE" And somehow That garnered the generic white knight retort about profit and marketing and the not so witty "Commerce isn't evil"..... Seeing that as per the above post,, I too, am a STAKEHOLDER in the game... Why does me wanting more value in my stake of the game seem to ruffle the "Commerce isn't evil" feathers of the self appointed!?!?! I would think that wargaming doing something to make the game BETTER FOR EVERYONE would be something that we can all agree on. This idea that WG needs people to police the forums and remind it's customer base that profit is the root of every business is goofy, at the least. Where is this coming from? This just sounds like a convenient excuse to dismiss someones point and shy away from the topic at hand.
  3. Yes. I knew that ultimatley I was the only one who could make this decision. But I was curious to see what others decided. I have personally chosen to keep my 100 bucks in my pocket. That will either buy a lot of xmas loot crates..... Or a nice new K-Bar knife I been looking at. Or even a weekend away with my two boys. I guess if it were more ship than it is.. i would consider it. But im not willing to do it, after considerable thought.
  4. I have 456 fuel tokens. the 25 crates will give me the 800+ i need for the Benham. What do you guys think? WIll this ship ever just be available again for cash or Coal? I have a feeling the Benham is going to turn out to be one of them really great rare ships and I hate to miss out on it. Anyone else close!?!? What did you do!?!?
  5. Yup. I mean... i guess they found a marketing technique that seems to be working for them. I just think we should be getting some increase in the value of the game if we are to keep spending on it. Nothing wrong with either of those. Both the nature of capitalism.
  6. THIS .... This is one of the best things Ive seen someone say on these forums. And is 1000% whats up. The issue is the method, not the asking for a profit. Everyone with a brain in their head knows that Wargaming is a for profit business and we choose to spend our money here. No White Knighting needed. The real issue is the new method by which they are going about these events. It's a repeat cookie cutter under a different name and color each month. And the way things previously were... some of us expect more.
  7. Yeah... well ... I am a consumer... Not a business. I want more for my money. Not less.... Why do so many people have an issue with THIS!?!? I spend more money than I reasonably probably should on Wargaming titles. Wanting them to increase the value of return on my investment is the nature of a capitalist market. The Big Business has more than enough going for it without consumers trying to shame each other for wanting more bang for their buck.
  8. So then it's all profit driven marketing!!??!? I'd like to see something introduced into the game, simply to increase it's enjoyment, entertainment, fun, and value!!! Like customizable inscriptions or custom emblems and/or flags..... It wouldn't be that hard to attach a custom flag, emblem, inscription editor into the game so that people could put a little bit of their own personality into the ships they play. They did something similar in World of Tanks. Unfortunately they only allow number changes, and no written custom wording. How cool would it be to put a NFL Logo or something on ship or even a UFC banner with a FIST and the name of a UFC Fighter or something... idk. There is a million possibilities.

    Nikolay Kuznetsov or Murmansk?

    Go with the Captain. The ship is only a few bucks in the premium shop and you can buy it anytime. it's not like a rare or anything. Def. less than 20 bucks. The Captain however is a special captain that gets Personalization: Signal Flares, Colored shell tracers, and a broad pennant. As well as two talents: Will to Victory, and Concealed Reserves. You can find the info on these in game. But i'll say this, they are nice perks. I have the Murmansk, and the Captain. I'd sell the ship, LONG before i'd delete the captain!
  10. Yeah... i heard Jingles saying that... i his last few videos. That people have ALL this free XP, credits, Gold, and what not, and nothing to spend it on. That has never been my issue. If that is the case then they need to think about putting some constraints on their attempt to make money on EVERY LITTLE THING in the game. They have SOLD EVERYTHING for a dollar. And now they want to pass the buck on to US for their [edited] and pillage of their own game. During events... they give away Tech Tree ships in containers Eliminating half or more of the grind. So that they can SELL containers... and Make $$$$ Right now, there is a "New Orleans WITH BOOSTER" in the premium shop for Sale. $$$$$ They have SOLD the GRIND.... They have literally sold EVERYTHIGN RIGHT DOWN TO THE GRIND....... and NOW they want it BACK!!!!! $$$$$$$$$ They have straight SOLD OUT the game.... and now they want to Double, Triple, and Quadruple down on the value of the ship lines.... SO THAT THEY CAN SELL THAT TOO!!! $$$$$$$$$$$$ ENough, will NEVER be ENOUGH at this rate. If we allow this to happen, and keep playing, all we are doing is selling out OURSELVES !!!!
  11. Well said. This Gent knows!!! That Specialist patch was like a sledge hammer to the head of the prom queen. For Warplanes. And that isn't even as Grindy as this will be. Can you imagine what this will do to Warships?

    Its like most everything they put out. The only people it benefits, are the ones that need it the least. This will only benefit the people who already run over the rest of the community and have 60+ win rates. Just like all the steel and other ships they put out. You win thse by winning clan wars, and ranked and what not. The best guys win and get the best ships. This will just power creep anyone but the best players right out of the game.
  13. They did almost this VERY thing in Warplanes about a year ago. Everyone had worked so hard to get their tier 10 planes and worked up a few lines since the new Warplanes 2.0 had come out. Then they came out with this FOOLISH new thing where they took everyones consumables, specialized equipment, and ammo off t heir planes and put them back to "Base Line" Now what you had to do was start each line plane each plane for 100 games to get it to "Specialist" And instead of having a few engines, airframes and what not you could use to upgrade your plane, you had to do these incriments on each module Then when you got so far you could "Calibrate" the stuff.... it was the most ABSURD thing. People left the game in DROVES!!!! Now when you get on World of Warplanes..... There is 2-4 players per match and 12-14 bots. The game is almost all bots. IS THAT WHEN WE WANT FOR WARSHIPS??? A Bunch of Non-stop BOT wars going on in the servers... with 1-4 players per/match actually sticking around.. and the rest BOTS? EVERY TIME Warplanes announces a game update you can pop into their forums, and see SEVERAL posts by former players... "Just came back to see if they relinquished the "Specialist" mode and put the game back to normal" Literally EVERY patch you can find these threads. People enjoy these games.... They WANT to play them, but what they don't want to do, is basically start over again. Nor do they want to be power crept by someone who has a stockpile of currency. This is just turning into pay to win. Wargaming......... LOOK AT THE NUMBERS....... After Warplanes 2.0 came out, Warpalnes awas HIGH on the HOG!! Highest in game numbers of players than EVER!! Then the specialist update came out. And those numbers were back down below 2.0 numbers. And they continue to plummet...... Isn't that the exact opposite of what we want for warships? We don't want the players to leave, and the numbers to drop. That's not profitable, And lets be honest.... thats what this is all about. That's what any business is all about. The only people this is going to benefit, are the people who already have the highest win rates and run over everyone else already. I don't see why they need a boost..... I think this will be the demise of a very large portion of the player base.

    You are 100% correct, but you'lll see all the usual brown nosers in here doing their best to get you to believe that you were GIFTED a better version of the original announcement as though that was some favor to the community.
