  1. The year is 2022 and I just remembered this place exists. How are people hanging?

      Barely I suppose, logged in by chance out of boredom. Mainly doing FF14, Genshin, and whatnot. Play this occasionally to mald, the usual

      @Cruiser_Atago Good to hear from you. Genshin has a strong hold in these parts.

  2. *waves*

    You still hanging around here?

  3. Who's still here?

      @Jim_Byrnes So busy that a month went by before I got back on here!

    4. Jim_Byrnes


      Totally understandable these days! Hope you and your loved ones have a great Christmas and a healthy new year!

  4. For those in the know,



  5. Not sure why the PR Meme thread got nuked from orbit, but nice play out of the Gaijin Forum Admin playbook.


    I guess we'll see them pull out the Weeb Hating Banhammer next?

  6. I just saw the PR Directive numbers.




    Absolutely. [edited]. Not. Doing. Any. Of. That. This. Holiday. Season.


    Family and friends are important things. Pixels that encourage me to pay through the [edited]to get something of neutral quality to the game: [edited] that crap.


    If you all want to hang out, I welcome that. Hit me up on discord or through DMs.

      I really wish they named it Hawaii or Guam, instead of my home country.

    Unfun gameplay for tier 8 DD

    "Spreadsheet says, 'He had fun.'"
  8. Some teams can't be pulled across the goal line.





  9. My feelings about the game over the last couple of years: "Mistakes were made"

    The patch roadmap: Those feelings are intensifying.

    Kyoto Animation set on fire by sick [edited]

    You can get some digital artwork from their online shop. They're about $2 a piece. https://kyoani.shop-pro.jp/ It is mostly Free! and Hibike Euphonium. Hopefully they add more.

  12. I'm back on YouTube! Stop by for a chat and help me get this ball rolling again.


  13. The rework and subsequent hotfix make it abundantly clear that the dev team have lost the plot with this game. This hotfix is nothing to be celebrated. They only increased the amount of participation points that one side of the equation is receiving and made the other side of the interaction into something most players won't play for the long term. 


    The summation of these two efforts is that they have simply changed the formula to achieve the same results we had before:

    • No skill/advanced knowledge on either side of the interaction.
    • High tier CVs either stomp or are minor footnotes.
    • Participation rewards simply for hitting battle and getting lucky with MM to get a CV are present.
    • CVs still dominate the vision game. This isn't necessarily an issue that can be directly resolved, but it points to the crap vision system this game has in place.

    I'd love to see more inspiration in the implementation than the WoT Arty/Alternative viewpoints. Bombsights and AA Mount sights could not only be an interesting visual aesthetic, but also a good way to add layers of skill to the game.

    Not asking for simulator level here, but there needs to be skill-based interactions added on both sides of this interaction. And yes, I do believe that players should be forced to pick which threat they are prioritizing defense against: surface or air.

      Lol, did you catch all the 400,000-550,000 damage games that were coming out of the woodwork all over from before said hotpatch? :Smile_coin:
      The way CV's were meant to be played

    2. Atomic_Manatee


      Wait til subs are finally implemented in game :Smile_trollface:

  14. Long Range CV Torps are confirmed viable and cancer. Learning curve to predict without the indicator is real however so I would be hard pressed to suggest a nerf.


    Results from a 15 minute game where I spent 6 minutes derping around.

      Another Master! *bows*

  15. This patch should not have hit the live server.
