    Why do people hide their Stats?

    Actually what triggered my going private were a couple of third party websites... I didn't like the idea of them using my stats to generate revenue for them, whatever mini amount it might be... additionally, those sites were (maybe still are) making very negative comments about players who took their stats private. Derogatory comments. The type of comments for which, if I were "in charge", I would turn their access to the data off for a few days so they understood use of my players' data in such a manner would not be tolerated. What sealed the deal for me was the attempt by many to turn stats in this game into another WoT scenario of total stat-shaming, stat-bashing in-game chats. It's died down a good deal here but it's still active. FWIW.

    Visibility Improvements sorely needed...

    Well i can say it has been an open, ongoing discussion like fer'ever... never underestimate QoL issues when it comes to play-ability. If I may say, it's been some time since then went the rounds of reviewing mods and incorporating the best. The last one I saw implemented was the ship direction indicator... with a circle instead of an X so you know, we aren't stepping on anyone's work, right... so sometimes that circle looks like a tiny island on the map... so maybe they just give credit for the idea to the mod who created it, maybe a premium ship or something... Shoot... a contest for mods would be good for business too.

    Salem repair cost????

    Salem... the name alone will you... You do see the resemblance to one of WoWS spokespersons don't you? More on topic, I have never had a match in my Salem cost me coins. About the only way you'd lose money would be parking her and going AFK. I have both ships. I got the special Salem camo they offered on her... she's a hoot to play and a looker... Besides that... if you have any USN commanders in need of training, she can do it - Des Moine cannot.

    Captain Fry just left the ship

    Fry was fortunate to have a loving forever home as you were to have such a companion as part of your family. My condolences.

    Worth getting Kronstadt before it goes?

    Write to WoWS/WG and ask for ship rentals... so you could rent the ship for X number of games, hours or up to a full day. It couldn't be cheap but it would allow people to try the ship out first. Most of the ships you'll play will play differently than the reviews will tell you because of how you play. Only you can determine if a ship fits you.

    Total War: Arena Shutdown Feb 2019

    So I wonder... did WG gain anything from the purchase and the efforts tossed at that program... which could be useful to them in the near future?

    Overclocked Plasma Globe - Do not attempt at home

    I figure one day we'll hear or read about him be roasted like a peanut... or alternatively, he'll have video proof of opening a door into the eight dimension, albeit a short-lived door.

    Who have you seen in game

    Nope... they were all beaching at me of course ;-) but I gave it my best. You know I have a DM and still, I really hate them.
  10. Which is rather dimly considered... would be better if they were to allow us to pick the nation/ship for the xp dump. I don't own the ship, have no idea how much is on it and don't feel like buying it to find out while using a port slot, then losing on the sale because I don't need or want a tier 1 ship. fwiw imho uc
  11. Yea, well let me tell you after playing four battles in this mode, the steamrolls are real. You think camping is bad in random modes? Try this one on for size. Four up, four down - four straight losses and no amount of coaching, coaxing, no positive affirmations, nothing would break them out of the camper mode. Sure it's a small sample but I'm interested in hearing how others have fared in the A.M. of the new mode. I'm disconnecting from server, waiting a bit then reconnecting later. Maybe that'll change things up, eh? BTW - they talked about dds being able to change course abruptly... i take it that's a later feature, as I did not see it.
  12. So one must wonder, why they did not turn to Arena to discern the scheme may not pan out as they expect? Once they start down the road, it will probably turn into a one lane street... how would you go back? It would also allow them to tweak rates individually... really I suppose, there are so many options/reasons/explanations for them doing this we'll never know the real reasons with any assurance. Tune in next time, same bat time, same bat channel, to see what page is the next to turn!
  13. But wait... there's more if you read between those pesky lines.... bold by me... I read the original article a couple times. The bold section above indicates to me a possible - probably slim - chance the rates may be different. Initially you would think those who play WoWS and WoT would not want this option... and there are a whole lot more players in WoT than WoWS. If they start down this path... you buy a year of premium for WoWS... but a couple months on you get the urge to play WoT. Guess what... your WoWS premium time will not apply to WoT - OR any other WG game. If that's fine with you then hoorah... but the only reason I don't play, oh let's say, Arena, is my machine is waiting to be replaced. If I bought premium, I'd want it to apply to all the F2P WG games. So to my eyes it reads like you can buy WoWS premium at a slightly higher cost (cause you get a more effective return on every match) than WG Gaming premium (all games). I'd find it strange if they would give it up for the same or less... cause arguably, standard premium gives you more gaming options. And tempting the die-hard WoWS players to pay a bit more to get a bit more might sound like a good deal. IMHO it will be interesting to see how it all pans out.
