  1. I received that same mail this morning. Looked up the user (dark_sephiroth96) and there were no stats.
  2. There are good reasons to complain and/or provide customer feedback to WG regarding this. I agree that nobody is forced to buy this...and I think many will not if they already have the other version of the ship. My opinion is that adding reskinned clones is a poor idea for "new" ships and that they could make more money with a different approach (ship + camo bundle). I don't have their marketing data to know how many existing ship owners would also buy the black version just to have it compared to existing ship owners purchasing a bundle for the camo/doubloons. Or, what the projected new sales of the four ships would be for those that do not already own them (because it is black!). But, it's still fun to get the pitchforks dusted off from time to time.
  3. Speaking of profit, I wonder what analysis they did on the possible options that made them go with the option to create new ships with the black camo instead of a new camo for the existing ship. As others have said, it seems they could have offered this as a bundle (ship + black camo). Those without the ship would get the ship plus the camo. Those who already own the ship get the camo plus some doubloons. WG gets the same $$ per sale. They could then sell just the camo sometime in the future to milk a little $$ out of those who did not want the bundle at the initial offer. I would buy a bundle to get the Asashio's black camo (and doubloons)...but not going to buy another Asashio. Maybe someone's year end bonus is dependent on how many "new" ships they offered this year.
  4. I'm sad because when they add junk like this, my odds of getting the Belfast from a Christmas crate decrease.

    PSA...In a rush for those SCs...

    Each coop game I played today (14 games) only lasted 5-6 minutes. Sure, there were some I lost 100,000 credits. That was early on until (like mentioned above), you can be aggressive with the bots and still come out OK. Many times I was broadside, expected to be hit hard, only to see HE coming in.

    No SC for the Henri IV?

    I got a SC for this ship today (played in Coop).

  8. My son (14, when he was into this game) made it to tier 6 in two lines and not once complained about getting stomped on. I would guess that he had some games with clubbers? I even div'd with him some at lower tiers and never ran into someone I would suspect as an OP captain or that it had that much of an impact on the game. Or if there was one, it did not seem to matter or affect his attitude toward playing. He stopped playing because he plays PS4 with his friends now. I am not sure this is even an issue to be concerned about because it is not a wide spread issue (high point captains playing low tiers and having a game breaking impact).
  9. I don't use low tier premiums as trainers, but I will pull the Fujin out to get some commander XP (19 pt Harekazi Yamamoto captain). The odds are good that we will get a win and the flags do not go to waste. This wasn't even that good of a game (1 kill). I don't think anyone felt clubbed. I'm not good enough to be a clubber.
  10. I got nailed by a carrier....they were pretty upset that I survived. Spent the rest of the match running/being chased.

    Detected Icon has to be fixed

    And that is probably why nothing would be done to fix this (and how often does it really happen? ). I have only experienced this myself while in a DD. Meet another DD in a cap...get surface detected. A few shots fired, time to smoke up and get out. LOS with enemy DD blocked by smoke, detection icon changes to radar spotted (radar ship behind island). I probably wouldn't have used the smoke in this case knowing I was also detected by radar (radar was on before I smoked, there was no break in detection once surface detection was blocked). But I was already on my way out/away from the enemy so the outcome wasn't too bad in this case. It would be nice to know all the methods that are being used to detect you (if multiple methods are occurring simultaneously). But, we may hear how this takes extra calculations, the server cannot handle this, coding required, etc.
  12. Why did WG change the economy for reward ships from flags (ranking out / clan battles) to steel? It looks like they already lowered the bar to get these reward ships if they make steel available through other ways (lower ranks, less steel...lower clan ranks, less steel). It seems possible now to get them, eventually. I have never made it to rank 1. Could I have? Perhaps if I put the time/effort in to reach rank 1 each season. Maybe now, I can still get some progress to the reward ships even if I only reach a rank below 1 (not sure if there is a WOLF3 clan battle team). It will take me longer, yes. But there is a path to it. I like the change to steel as a commodity towards reward ships. Steel being rare, but still obtainable in other quantities besides reaching rank 1 or reaching high ranks in clan battles, makes it possible in the long run to earn the reward ships even if you are not able to put in the time to play or play in a clan. I cannot comment if the reward ship is OP and that the good players will just use it to stomp us average players. I will look forward to the challenge...they can be sunk.

    Remember When?

    I thought smoke was originally designed as a defensive consumable to use to get out of a poor position (smoke up and retreat). Then everyone realized you could fire unspotted from smoke and it became a game of "smoke me bro" and changed to more of an offensive consumable. Then WG had to come up with something to counter that behavior. I wonder where we would be now if that had made it so any ship firing from smoke would be visible (normal gun bloom range) from the beginning.
