  1. That would be a great recommendation if he was looking for a tier 8 Russian cruiser. Apparently, the OP wants & can afford a tier 3 German BB. It's also rather difficult to train German commanders in the Kutuzov.
  2. There was nothing in the update notes about it being permanently pulled. Most players don't visit the forums, so they wouldn't have seen the post from PoW, much less watch his stream. I'm sure they would have had a lot more sales had they made an announcement on the front page/launcher. It's not like WG has a problem doing that, as I certainly remember when the E-25 was pulled from WoT and lots of people on the forum scrambling to buy one. No explanation is needed. There's always someone who feels the need to tell you how or how not to spend your money. It's none of their damned business, but they just can't help themselves.
  3. The 4th of July sale was great... for those who really enjoy the US lines. Personally, I'd much rather see a Summer Sale on NA. Seems like WG would make more money (from me, at least) with an event that includes ships from every nation. I didn't buy a thing from the 4th of July sale, but there are at least three ships I'd gladly buy from that Summer Sale.
  4. Sometimes my phone rings all by itself. I hear voices in it, too. Rarely happens at night, though.
  5. You refer to your shotgun as "the trusty ol' Remington 870", then admit that you tossed a blued gun into the same compartment as your AR. You then proceed to bash Remington as if it's somehow substandard since the finish got scratched. No, that's all on you. Bluing isn't a wonder coating and it needs to be properly cared for. Letting it bounce around and rub against another weapon isn't proper care. There are several reason why bluing is the cheapest finish, and durability is one of them. Maybe having it refinished with Cerakote or Duracoat might give it the durable finish you want. I've used Duracoat on a couple of 10/22 builds (and a few non-firearm projects), and it's a pretty tough finish. It's easy to do yourself, as well. As for touching up the bluing, I've tried lots of them and found Oxpho-blue (from Brownells) to be the best. It can easily match the existing bluing and done correctly, you'd never be able to tell where it was used. I even used it to completely refinish an old Stevens Model 15 .22 rifle for my nephew. He learned to shoot with it and eventually used it to hunt small game. Still looks like factory bluing after three years.
  6. I used to use one of the sights in Aslains modpack (green lemon), but now use the dynamic sight. I started watching several good players on Twitch trying to improve my game and noticed that most of them use the dynamic sight. Notser did a great job of explaining how sights work in that video and it definitely helped me. It took a while to get used to, but I really like it now.
  7. I've received a total of two super containers. I got one with 100 Dragon flags at the beginning of the year, then a second the week that the new modifications were introduced. Of course, that SC contained the spotting plane mod, which in my opinion, is the most useless of them. I don't go with TYL, though and stick with flags & camo. I know SC's are rare and I'd rather get the most out of the containers that I can.
  8. There were a pair of those DC-10's sitting at the Albuquerque airport for quite some time (one had been there all Winter). I wonder if there's a repair facility for them there, as for the last few years there's usually been one or two parked there during the off season. Thanks for the post, too. That's some impressive footage.
  9. WG doesn't care, until someone reports you. I can almost guarantee that someone has already done that. The forum is full of Do-Rights.
  10. Tomorrow has been postponed until next week.
  11. And that is leading buyers to the mid-range Nvidia cards, making them scarce and overpriced, as well.
  12. All I really want from the scenarios are the 10-point captains. The other rewards are nice, but the captains are most valuable to me. I made the mistake of waiting until the weekend to attempt this one and I have to say that I can truly understand the OP's frustration. I watched a streamer do the mission a couple of times, so I knew what to expect, but my first two attempts ended with two and three stars due to teammates ending it early. I got a four star match on the third try and called it quits. This scenario has the potential to be fun, but, in my opinion, it's definitely one that you'd want to play in a division.
  13. I stopped playing WoWS before the achievements were added, but I had two games with 5+ kills before that (7 in the Omaha & 5 in the Wyoming). I came back this January for the Southern Dragon missions and have received three Krakens since, all in BB's (NM, Konig & Kongo). I've played about 400 matches since coming back. I owe a lot of that to watching some great streamers, which has improved my aim considerably. I'm sure RNGesus was on the bridge in each of those matches, as well.
  14. I don't remember Kawichi being so bad, but it's been a long time since I played it (when the game went live). I didn't play many games in it, so at least the grind through it is quick. I have to agree with those who've mentioned the Albany. It's long detection range & short firing range made it a pain to play. I sold it and have no regrets about doing so (it was a feebie, anyway). I did read that it had been buffed since I last played it, but even that's not enough for me to send a ticket in and get it back.
  15. What leads you to believe he hasn't played in over a week? I saw him in some Operation Aegis missions a couple of days ago. Maybe these operations aren't showing up in the battle count.
