  1. @henrychenhenry I was expecting to come here and see the typical responses to the "I'm leaving the game" statement. I was pleased to see for you that it took until Soggy Taco and hateboat's respective comments for that [edited] to show up henry. It shows the class act that you are. You had represented yourself and NSC better than I have. Hats off to you. Thank you for your contribution to the clan. If at some point you decide to come back to the game, and I haven't pulled he pin on it myself as I have issues with WG's behaviour as well, there will be a place for you in NSC... and you wouldn't have to play with [edited] like Soggy Taco and Hateboat. Well... not for long anyway.

    @Gunga_Dinner That certainly is another way to look at it. Mind you, it took a couple years for my to realize that my WoT and then WoWs hobby was better than hookers and blow...

    You're loosing customers wargaming

    In seems a good number of folks are missing the point of the post I made. I did not come here to analyze wargaming's global business performance nor, the participation rates of the accounts on any of their servers. I did come here to post the fact that when a business makes a mistake by honest error, incompetence or contempt for their customers, THEY LOOSE CUSTOMERS... ...or as NoLoveForPhatFish stated, they close their wallets. This is where I am at this point. NavalPride is correct in my mind that "It takes time to loose/scare off people who have been playing a long time". After things like I've listed in the OP wargaming is a good piece down that road with me. I think Sparky's final sentence in his post sums it up for far more people that didn't decide to drop by here to post their thoughts. In retrospect, in leading a clan with a few other folks, a concerning amount of the member turnover we experience lately has been due to wargaming's behaviour. These players that are turning over... leaving the game, have played over 1,500 battles. I would like to see wargaming get their craptogether. I enjoy the game mostly. I don't enjoy the contempt they are displaying in what they have done.
  5. I sat down with my coffee this morning and noticed that there was a new video up from Jingles on WoWs. I thought "Great!"... Then I watched it. The following is what I posted in reply. "Its really looking that the brain trust in wargaming's World of Warships has gone full [edited]. CV re-work, Russian BBs and to a lesser extent, CAs, Research Bureau, Colbert, Smolensk, Puerto Rico, Cost of most premium boats are way out of line witht heir worth, now potentially subs that can't surface and can run with impunity under certain game conditions... At 15:00, you question how much of a deal breaker this could be... Even prior to this information; 360 days of premium comes up half price once a year, it did so yesterday. I've been buying it on that sale for the last five years or so. I might spend about $100 a year on the game. I know that if I don't buy that its not even noticeable to wargaming. However, I don't doubt there are others that are voting with their wallet in the same manner. If it comes that I don't play anymore, wargaming's real cost is in the loss of personality to the game. I do not hold myself in that high of a regard. However, there are about 40 people that I play the game with regularly. They spend cash on the game as well to varying degrees. When one leaves, there is less of an incentive for others to keep playing. wargaming: You have a dumpster fire that has gone beyond the things I listed above. If you want to save your investment in the game, you had better do something about the folks that are coming up with this hair brained [edited]. You have a good product. It is worth saving. You won't though if you allow these things to continue." iChases' Oh FFS WG video is playing in the background while I'm posting this... I agree with his lamentations at this point.

    wargaming did something good :o

    I might not have as dim of an outlook on the game in general as PoonVeteran does but, I wholeheartedly agree with his enjoyment of the 3v3 Clan Brawl... Give us more!! I think you might be a bit of a masochist NeoRussia... Although I think I'd like to see this in randoms with a kind of morbid curiosity.

    Clan Brawl

    That was a friggin' hoot!! I even got to see Canucklehead detonate a Sinop in an Atlanta with a ram! I'd like to see this 3v3 format again soon and frequently!

    How do you disable to post game screen music?

    Na... A fellow wouldn't be that fortunate.
  10. Yeah... Today's world is properly [edited]. There is going to be a lot of butt hurt when the pendulum swings back.

    How do you disable to post game screen music?

    Ahhh... I suppose you're right. I didn't read it carefully enough. If that's the worst thing, I suspect that they've never jambed a TV crew up your knob looking for bladder cancer then... I assure you, that's far worse than having to ignore a 10 second ditty.

    Don't worry... the part of forum denizens that are continually butt hurt have successfully lobbied to have the thumbs down button removed.

    I don't have any of the game music on at all... Go into settings>audio and turn the volume bars to 0
  14. I think the primary point for the decline of Ranked participation was missed based on personal experience and discussions with other players. The problem is not within wg's control but, a solution is. Personally, my lack of enthusiasm for ranked is tied to the generally poor quality of team play on ranked teams. As stars are tied to wins, when 5/8ths of the team refuses to push when needed 7/8ths of the time, the resulting stream of losses is like hitting yourself in the head with a hammer... It feels good when you stop. Progressing in ranked has become a matter of the team with the fewer number of poor players wins... Consequently, a poor player can progress in the ranks if they get a good run of mm draws. If the award of stars were tied to the exp earned, based on the rate without the win bonus, it ought to reward the skill respective of rank better. If this were the case, personal performance in a battle would be better reflected. It ought to be possible that a number of members of the loosing team would receive stars where the dogs of the winning team don't.

    TL:DR - Research Bureau

    Why do you people not listen to us?!?!? ^^ This fella sums up my desire to re-grind anything pretty well. For future reference: I have a family to support. Even if I didn't, there is nothing this game can offer me to get me to spend $1600 - $1700 to clear out my accumulated EXP.
