    WINNERS - The Perthfect Opportunity

    Woot! Thanks Fem! BTW, hope you enjoyed your stop in Hamilton at the HMCS Haida - my daughter and I had fun. :)

    WINNERS - The Perthfect Opportunity

    So next year (actually later this year), can you do *something* for Canada Day (on July 1st) instead of what happened last time please? Thanks.

    Developer Bulletin 0.9.1

    It works like this: if you originally got 1 million credits for reaching account level 10 (I'm making up these numbers), and in the new system you get 1.5 million credits for reaching account level 10, you will receive 500,000 credits after the change is made. If there are any "swap changes" (removing 1 type of flag and replacing it with another for example), they may just give you the new item. It's not entirely clear (to me anyway) what exactly each account level award change is going to be yet.

    Still Wargaming , no word on having a free demount period after this update hits?

    Developer Bulletin 0.9.1

    BTW, are we getting a period of free module demounts on 0.9.1 in case this system drastically changes our builds? I see that some modules will be automatically replaced, but what if I really don't like the new one, or want to change to something different now that the new modules is installed - I now have to pay to remove it?
  6. On the WG website the times are listed in UTC (+0). NA east coast is +4 (Atlantic time... are you really in that time slot?), so it starts at 8:30pm (7:30 Eastern - Toronto, Ottawa, NY, Ohio, Virginia, FL, etc). *Edit* Ohhhh, you're looking at this: Look at the dates though - and those are the start and end times for the combat missions.
  7. So Wargaming is just doing a really good job at confusing people? They're just saying that nobody can use radar to find ships farther than they can normally see - eg it can't be used to extend their view range. The only exception is spotting closer DD's. All this which is normal in regular game play anyway. Do I have that correct?
  8. In other news: Is this saying that radar doesn't work in the storm? That's really what it sounds like to me.
  9. Ya, and it's 4:30 PM start time for folks on the West Coast...
  10. Graf 9.4 km secondaries are a big pain in the neck - 150mm at that.
  11. Here's a clear example - my Shokaku was continually putting damage into the battleship and all he had to do was sit in the AB cap. Bla bla ya I missed, I might have been able to do it, whatever. This is a clear example of how balanced this isn't. My constructive feedback (from another thread): cut the cap rate by somewhere between 2 and 3 times. This would have made the game a bit more interesting for the both of us. 20200101_151729_PJSA108-Shokaku_22_tierra_del_fuego.wowsreplay

    Ranked Sprint 10 1v1 Review

    I'll post what I do like. I enjoy the 1v1 when I can play against a variety of ships. I mean if I know I'll be playing the same battleship a few times, I will try a few different strategies to see if I can get something to work but there comes a point where there's just no point. I enjoy trying to figure out what the strong and weak point of the ship is I'm playing against and try to counter it. Sometimes it works, sometimes I learn (or I hope I do anyway). ;) The other nice thing is the XP - win or lose. I've fully upgraded all my T8 boats.

    Ranked Sprint 10 1v1 Review

    Well the Graf and the Enterprise are a special case. The Shokaku and Lexington are enjoying about 51%. If you want to look at it stat wise, then the top ships are all premiums. Just buy the right ship and you shouldn't have a problem - assuming a decent player at the helm. Edit: To contrast: Graf Zep secondary build: 9.4 km 150 (8x2) and 105 (6x2) guns. Shokaku: 127 guns (6x2 & 2x2) at 4.5 km (base) -- so that's much longer range and almost twice as many guns. I don't have access to the hull plating numbers, but I seem to recall trying to hit the Graf at <10 km and not doing much damage to it. (Thanks to the lower cit I suppose.)

    Ranked Sprint 10 1v1 Review

    I'd say as a CV player it's not impossible for me to get to rank one, but I really don't like playing 10x more battles than the Bizmark meta ships just to do it. Wargaming, if you want constructive criticism, drop the cap rate in half (somewhere between 2 and 3 times lower) and maybe we'd have a better 1v1 game. Otherwise it's just a Battleship sit in the AB cap area and wait for the win event. For those of us who don't have a T8 BB *and don't want to purchase one*, this Ranked Sprint is not fair.
  15. Ya, there's little stopping a Tirpitz or any other decent BB in this. I can't get enough damage in with a CV before it either hunts me down and/or caps. Destroyers are much a lost cause because of the same -- not enough time to hide and torp before being capped out and/or secondaried. Cruisers are just not enough to do anything. Then the Tirpitz also has torps. Why don't we just call this the "Play BB and win" event.
