  1. I concur with this assessment...
  2. I'm seeing WG really increase their presence online, providing a lot of support and information to newer players. Kind of hoping they'll keep this trend going by providing some insights on this stickied technical issue. I have no doubt it's a big issue... and I don't expect anything but would sure like to see that sticky updated every couple patches.
  3. confusion

    Everyone knows that WG doesn't actually read or respond to anything that isn't subject titled "An Open letter to WG..."
  4. So it's been since April 18th since we heard anything about this... Any chance we can get a little update on how things are going? Any progress? Challenges? Findings? Anything?
  5. The Economy...

    Yeah- until the announcement that Aladrama was only going to be available to Supertesters...
  6. I put some risky ones out there in Tears of the Desert during a bit of a knife fight and one of my battleships wandered into them while he was maneuvering around- I was busy looking another direction so I didn't see the pink text. My voice messages are turned down quite a bit too so between shooting and dodging I had literally no clue I'd hit my own guy. I was really distracted and my situational awareness went the width of a soda straw. So when things slowed down I looked over to catch up on the chat and the pink had already cycled out of view. This Montana player was really, really salty about something... and I noticed -among other angry things on the subject- something to the tune of "So, you hit someone with your own torpedoes and you don't even say you're sorry? You [edited] [edited] [edited] [edited]..." I wasn't the only DD out there but I flashed back to firing the torps and realized that the Montana had been in the general target area. "Are you talking to me?" "Yeah, you hit me with 2 torps [edited] for brains!" "Holy crapdude, I'm really sorry- I lost track of them and got distracted. I have no excuse- totally my bad." "That's alright man... no biggie. At least we won." (Words to that effect). And then nothing. We chatted a bit afterwards and it was like it never happened.
  7. In quickly reviewing your stats it looks like you ran up some of the lines pretty quickly and created a skill gap that has caught up with you. Your stats paint a picture of someone who is most comfortable in tier V-VI battleships with a couple of exceptions. Tier V and VI is, not coincidentally, where you played the most games. My suggestion to you would be to go back to hauling water and chopping wood in Arizona, Bayern and Warspite in PvP to help build your confidence back up. Even Myogi looks reasonable down in tier IV and you have enough games in it to demonstrate at the VERY least pulling some of your own weight. With a pretty low main battery hit percentage and a very low survival rate it seems that you are closing distances with opponents too fast since you have trouble hitting them at longer range. As a result you end up getting distracted in your gunsight while not paying enough attention to how things are unfolding around you on the minimap. By the time you pop your head back out to see what's going on, you're caught out in the open and alone to be focus fired and sunk. I'm not sure that digressing to PvE is the answer to your issues as a matter of fact I'm quite certain this will work against you and lull you into perpetuating bad habits. I'd encourage you to take a deep breath and go to ships you performed reasonably well in (mentioned above) and focus your efforts on enhancing your aim and maintaining situational awareness on the minimap. Take a shot, then hold your Right Mouse Button down to free look around you- this will keep your reticle on target while allowing you to keep an eye on what's happening around you. Each shot (especially in a battleship) is a reminder to look at the minimap. On a positive note, your average damage and average experience did not follow the negative trend of your win rate- which did, as you described, really drop off in a short time. This does suggest that you're improving over time in spite of the losses and this will eventually pay dividends.
  8. Yeah... almost half a billion credits I still have nothing to spend on. Meanwhile, 2 new currencies to employ...
  9. Extended losses

    What tier/s were you generally playing when you experienced this trend?
  10. At around the 7:30 minute mark, with the DM clearly in view you launch two full spreads of torps on an almost dead Richilieu. The DM gets hit with one of those torps and you call the CA a [edited]? Unreal. There is no other way to look at what happened. You got greedy, fired off some torps and hit your own guy. Next time, just own the fish instead of being an insolent little [edited] about it.
  11. I was going to say something like this as well. In my thread where I'd asked for some pointers I was told I may not be trading enough of my HP for victory since my survival rate exceeded my win rate... so somewhere between where you and I are in terms of survival is a nice balance where you're in it enough to influence the outcome but not so much so that it gets you deleted early. I think the true secret to being unicum is understanding exactly what that means and being able to apply it.
  12. Only reason I went past rank 10 this year was to try out the tier 10 gameplay. It was the first time ranked was even slightly exclusive and I didn't mind that- you couldn't just easy mode into a premium ship "because everyone has a right to play." Traditionally rewards past rank 11 are useless (to me) and while modules aren't as bad as when they were first introduced they're nowhere near enough to wade through hip deep salt and 4 ranks of camo. For all that the gameplay is excruciatingly repetitive- but for all the things I don't like about it I don't have any ideas to make it better other than a stat skill floor and more lucrative incentives- more performance boosting signals and less blasé economy camo.
  13. Mine dropped as well- had some issues with the wows numbers page too but those have since been remedied.
