    Let's see how bleak this might become!

    Ran out of signals a couple months after the achievement change to missions for signals. Yup, wasn't a nerf to signals at all.

    New sounds look like fun!

    What We Intended to Achieve The visual style of the World of Warships universe has substantially changed over the years. New elements have appeared—buttons, windows displaying various info, etc. It's important for the background sounds to also evolve. In the process of developing this update, we had three key objectives: To improve user comfort when interacting with the interface. (If obtrusive annoying sounds is your idea of comfort.) To increase the effect of immersion for the player. (Because the sound of some rodent chewing on an acorn behind your screen adds immersion) To fix bugs and create sounds for all elements of the current game interface. (therefore more bugs were fixed with this patch than made..) Our new approach to in-game sound was based on several theses: Consistency: A new sound should have its clear place and perform its direct function. (the clings and clangs are quite consistently annoying) Relaxation: We want to create a comfortable environment for our players with the aid of new sounds. (annoying and comfortable, two peas in a pod to WG) Immersion: The game should provide feedback to the player and evoke an emotional response. (emotional response: check, Immersion: not so much) Descriptiveness: A new sound should emphasize the function of a button and its importance. (because klings and clangs just scream importance)

    Is "Railgunning" illegal?

    Or not.

    PR is a money grab BTW

    Calling her literally a light battleship or battle cruiser is like calling a haunghe literally an elbing. I mean, they have similar guns, concealment, torps, AA, size. And both of them have smoke! I mean they are literally the samish ship!

    PR starter packs.

    Your image doesn't work for me. Or most peoples images for that matter. How do we call a community manager?

    PR starter packs.

    How long are Dockyard, or if noted, the PR starter packs going to be around for or typically around for?
  8. WES_HoundDog

    This is just awful

    I'm going to go with this one. Probably an account designed to gain attention. Maybe even the OP's alt.

    Are the PR dockyard stage rewards a step down?

    Not sure why they feel the need to give any rewards per stage but eh, to each their own.

    PR Abuse

    First thing that came to mind when i read this thread was he was totally not talking about himself and totally not taking about people complaining about any kind of performance in it.

    Is Puerto Rico Worth it?

    OK, i'll help you out. I would play almost any tier 10 over a PR.

    Is Puerto Rico Worth it?

    Lots of whales bought PR last time. I saw about 1 PR a month when i played. Deductive reasoning on your own.
  13. So please tell me why this wouldn't be the best way to play? And why would anyone ever play differently no matter what they change. To me, sailing out into the middle of the ocean to shoot at a bunch of ships and to get shot at by a bunch of ships is, how should i put this... pointless.? The people will complain about how other people play the game no matter what. Either their all hiding behind island, or their all invisible, their all campers, or their all nose in. People play the game that represents the best way to win and their always going to do it and someone always not going to like it. Removing all islands and making the map 10k square is not going to make anything better even though that's what you are saying you want.

    So i read a thread recently about WG running out of real ships to add and the future of the game. Sure he was butchered pretty quickly by the playerbase saying there was plenty of real ships to be made for years to come but that brings me to my question for today. Do new ships keep you playing this game? Would you no longer be playing if WG did not release a single ship line in the last year? How much fun and excitement have you received because of the release of new ship lines in the last year or two. I'm not saying that a total ending of new ships coming out, but would an 80% reduction on ship adds change how you feel about this game?
  15. So a DD sailing around the edges of the map is a banable offence? My nephew, while he likes to shoot things when he plays, i think would equally happily just sail around the edges of the map spotting things if he was told that's what a dd is supposed to do. Which for the very poor players beset by planes over and over again may resort to doing as their conclusive most beneficial action to take.
