    Timer correct on Holiday Tree?

    It isn't working. I just did the DD mission to get over 1000 base exp in a single match, and I was looking for the 5x Sierra Mike flags, and I did not get them. I clicked to participate. I did the thing. I have not gotten the signal flags. I confess myself disappointed by not surprised.

    I cannot even FIND the tree. Am I missing something? I clicked participate. ~Beorn

    Acquiring the Preussen and/or the Schlieffen?

    You guys are AWESOME! Thank you for clearing this up for me! I am so going to do this!!! ~Beorn
  4. Greetings fellow digital Captains, your ol' buddy Beorn here. I am a middle-aged man, and as such sometimes the interwebz confuses me. I was not able to get enough of the German tokens to get all the way to the Schlieffen (I mean, that was a lot of tokens!), and I really want to get one. I LOVE my Großer Kurfürst but I really want to new ship. And when I was in a match just now, I was told in general chat (SO much nicer than it was in Tanks back in the day) that the Preussen will replace the GK and not the Schlieffen. So, consider me confused. HOW do I get these ships? I repurchased my Friedrich der Große (it is more fun than it used to be, or maybe I got a teensy bit better?) and am grinding up more credits. If anyone is so inclined, would you please tell me how best to get these ships? Much obliged in advance, Beorn of the Northern Sea (whose Google-Fu is mighty weak)

    On the CCTP&Missouri

    I would like to thank @MalgusKerensky for making a "here endeth the lesson" post. To the point (technically bullet point) and what they SHOULD but will not do. ~Beorn

    Premium Ship Review - Yukon

    I must admit I am curious to listen to the upcoming "Mingles With Jingles" this Monday. ~Beorn

    Premium Ship Review - Yukon

    @LittleWhiteMouse, @Chobittsu thank you for all of the hours of amazing research, hard work, and dedication to the fans of Naval warfare. I am, or was, one of those whales. I have spent thousands of dollars on Tanks, Warships, even Warplanes. The Puerto Rico [edited]show annoyed me. The Yukon debacle angered me. The Missouri credit nerf (which I have had almost since the day it was available) disgusted me. But the way WG has treated arguably one of the kindest and most dedicated community contributors mother[edited] enrages me. Consider my wallet closed. You [edited] [edited] don't give a Tinker's damn about anyone or anything but the money going to The Serb. Warships ain't getting mine anymore. I was never a great player. I am an average tanks player, at BEST. And I am decidedly worse at Warships. But the people were worth it. And I tried my best to be a good team mate. How come WG is such a [edited] team mate? Like, runny, rancid, corn-laden, mottled pieces of [edited] [edited]. To hell with it. ~Beorn

    This Ise is a hoot to play!

    I am not a very good player. I have moments of near competency. And yet, I really enjoyed the Ise. I wasn't the best, and I don't think I will ever be anywhere near close, but, for fun, I had a blast. https://replayswows.com/replay/133673#stats As I said, I think I'll need more practice before I even think of laying the cash down for a Tone, but, this hybrid style ship (although who REALLY loves more planes in the air?) doesn't ofeend my crap-player sensibilities NEARLY as much as I thought it would. Good luck out there Captains! ~Beorn

    Second on team, we won, STILL lost 2 karma points?

    Thanks Uncle Lou! I thought karma was very important. Much obliged! ~B *edit*- and thank you SirPent13

    Yeah I am raising silver to buy the next European Destroyer on the list, so, I was hoping to knock out some credits...

    Second on team, we won, STILL lost 2 karma points?

    I will state that, after the fact, after we turned the match from a loss to a win, I was salty. I own up to that. But honestly, a dead guy telling folks to report me?!? ~B
  12. Okay, so, I am in my Missouri. Range of the main battery guns, 27.1km. I do NOT have the dead-eye skill, but I am on the left flank and we are on the Sleeping Giant map. I get 2 kills, keep the flank, and I spot an opposing (and harrasssing as they should) Shima to keep folks from getting swamped with fish. Some dude tells everyone to report me. I lost TWO karma points. What the actual heck?!? https://replayswows.com/replay/126413#stats

    Leprechauns throwing games - how to react?

    If ever I am a leprechaun, I try to NOT throw games. But, I do confess that the targeting is like, in World of Tanks, "if you see a T-22 medium, attack it at all costs" especially from matches with CVs, albeit in a good-natured way (no spite or venom). Also, I am not a very good player. I have fits and starts of decency, and I try to stay alive to the end (like most games), but I ALSO am enjoying making secondary-specced BBs and trying to whittle opposing BBs who actually come in rather than fall back and rely on Dead-Eye. Anyway, I think the Leprechauns were drawn from a cross section of players; some great, some good, some average, and some like me... ~B

    What Have They Done To German CV's

    With the new Commander rework, I don't even see how you CAN spec for secondaries! I tried to put my GK Commander in the Graf Zeppelin, and it was like I hadn't any skills at all... Me no likey
