  1. I have been playing a casual account with a mate, who no longer plays, which has a very good list of ships across all tiers and is well resourced. The stats are not great at all, but it was only played for fun. However, now I have the account to myself and want to start competitive play with a clan that is developmentally focused, mature in nature and competitive. 

    As such I would love to join your clan and grow within its ranks. My account name on NA is Juggernaughtt (note the double tt)

    Regards,

    Juggernaughtt

    Server down?

    Normally they say if they are doing TLC on the servers/backend to clean up some cobwebs and make things go smoothly. Maybe they forgot to tell us? Regardless, if this persists for another hour and a half, then I would truly be worried. I would rather them not rush putting the server back up in a twisted and buggy mess and rather see them come back up stable and functioning properly.

    Pick ONE ship?

    Duca D'Aosta The perfect combination of speed, maneuverability, penetration capacity, build flexibility, armor scheme when kiting, and just fun to play to cheese enemy ships for whatever reason you have to wish to cheese them.
  4. You mean a better Goliath
  5. So there are 236 perma-camos in the Distant Voyages crates. Each crate costs 750 doubloons. Assuming you have the best luck and get every single camo out of every single box magically, that means you have to spend 177,000 doubloons. 50,000 doubloons cost $198 dollars in the premium shop. This means it will cost you ~$700 +/- $25 to get every single perma-camo out of those crates. And mind you, this is with the BEST THEORETICAL POSSIBLE LUCK YOU COULD HAVE. DO NOT CHASE THAT HIGH OF TRYING TO GET EVERY CAMO. IF YOU BUY A $20 IN CRATES, BE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU GET AND MOVE ALONG. DO NOT DIE ON THE HILL OF TRYING TO COLLECT.

    Is Napoli going to be available tomorrow on Monday?

    WG is never selling a grinding mission for a ship. They would just sell it or sell tokens to finish the grind.

    Yeah, this guy doesn't know how tier 10 non-silver ships work.
  10. I wish we lived in a world where people would treat a game as a game still. If you play Black Jack and you don't like it, stop playing it. If you keep playing it and you hate it and you lose all your money or if its way to stressful for you, then that's entirely on you. It's no one else's business besides yours as to what you find fun. Also, this games log-on population continues to rise despite these "game-breaking items" that WG does all the time. 3 years ago, mid-day on a day like today would net 8k players, and as of the very minute of this post we have 11k on. I don't understand why a game that is apparently "dying" or "being ruined" has picked up 3k+ game population in the middle of a Tuesday. If anything shouldn't I be looking at a 4k game pop at this time if it was dying? Gamers love to complain, ALOT.

    Public Critiquing of Clans for Unsuspecting and Informed Members

    How much they pay you? I get a dead fish a week.
  12. The justification that WG does everything it does to make money is a silly concept. Removing A hulls and then turning them into premiums has been done before and only a few hulls removed have turned to premiums. If so, what's the difference between WG turning A hulls into premiums and making copy-paste ships? Eugen is basically a Hipper with a heal in every respect, it basically got the "copy my homework but make a change so it looks original" treatment. Ashitaka is an A hull Amigi. Do either of these ships become less fun because of their implementation? Does anyone who plays the game actually give a crap? Has it truly made you lose sleep at night and cripple your entire game experience? Hell, people have asked for Wisco and Jersey for ages now. If they came in as an A hull at tier 9 with another gimmick to balance, would it shatter the entire game? If Washingon was an A or a B hull North Cal with improved secondaries or hydro, would people actually die and cease to exist? The objective answer is no. Frankly, only the people who try to create drama to justify their [edited] existence give a damn. Of all the hills to die on this is the dumbest one. It's a video game, not a digital museum. They don't "have to" or "need to" do anything, nor should they be compelled to as a free enterprise corporation. If they think removing or rescaling the A hulls of the game to eliminate all cases of C hull is best for the game, sure. If they make a premium out of it, then you are welcome to not purchase it to crusade against "evil weegee". The whole argument is senseless. Find something real to crucify WG over, like casino-grade loot boxes that give one single flag and feed addiction or WG selling a tier 10 premium for doubloons or setting up stupid as hell grinds like Puerto Rico. This as a fight being picked is absolutely ridiculous. "SHEESH."
  13. As a cruiser player, I have had more success after the rework than before it. I have a hunter/killer DM, an island scumming Salem, Goliath and Yoshino now play even better than before, and my Duca D'Aosta kicks even more [edited]than before, while my Omah and Phoenix still are guilty pleasures. I still love my Prinz Eugen, my Hipper, my Atago via Yuro's build. French cruisers are enjoyable to play again, and I like my Atlanta and Flint still despite Flint being sub-par for many. If you focus on doing your HP in damage + 20% to the enemy before you die, it makes life easier for having an actual game impact per match. Cruisers have never been designed to live the entire match, so you have to accept that and play through it, and take every minute of time floating as a blessing and fight on throughout the match. Eventually, you will be successful.
  14. This is the silliest complaint I have seen in my life. WG has already removed A hulls before for the sake of making tech tree ships easier to play. Do you play ships stock for their historical value? If so, please don't be on my team, I don't want to play with you if you bring a ship that's behind the 8 ball purposefully. Ships like Omaha trade torps for more AA with B and C hulls respectfully, which both are trade-offs for how to play. Maybe WG wants to let people have this freedom without having to grind extra XP? But of course, it's obviously a bad thing because WG is bad because WG is bad, right? It's statistically impossible for WG to be wrong 100% of the time with everything they do. I like this change, it makes regrinds easier. It lets players playing for the first time have a better advantage in their ship vs premiums played by good players with high-level legendary captains, which have an order of magnitude higher strength than those who are new and stock in their ship at tier. I'm sure there are many other reasons, but I think that honestly reducing the power gap is not an issue. This is a video game, not a digital museum you can simulate battle in. If you think it is something it's not, or both at the same time, then I'm sorry for you because your view of the game fundamentally ignores the reality of what it actually is.

    GAME DOES NOT RUN ON MAC!!!!

    Not to be an [edited], but WG is a free enterprise, they can do as they wish. If they don't want to support the use of a product on a certain OS, that is their business and that's how things are. Moral "oughts" never find their way into videogames sadly. It's a repeating pattern with a lot of video games that a company will do whatever they wish and that's just how things are and no amount of activism will change anything consistently or in most cases ever move the needle. Also, you buying a product from them does not equate to you using that product properly. It's like you buying a cattle prod when you live in an apartment in New York and then blaming the farm supply store you bought from in Nebraska that they wrongfully sold you a tool for something you can't do. It's not their business that you can't use the item, they just sell stuff. The same goes here.
