  1. Hhhmm. I might have to try the company credit card then (our 3rd bank). Because Wells Fargo and Comerica just won't let the transactions through for some reason. I've gone into WF and spoken to them before and they've said there's nothing holding it up on their end and I've called Comerica as well, same thing. /shrug I know support had told me (last year or the year before) that sometimes banks put a hold on over seas purchases and that's when I found out that nothing was being held up. Heck, I purchased this dang thing from Ireland not too long ago for the wife. So whatever it is, it's beyond me.
  2. At least he was able to get his CC's to work. I get nothing but the same thing as years past which is "Payment Failed" on all of my CC's/Debits. In the past I had to revert to PayPal, but since opening our business, we had some nefarious people try to "get one over" on us and submit a $1,00,000 withdraw from our PP. Thankfully that account wasn't active, but since then, we've shut down all of our PP accounts and refuse to use them any more. Has anyone had luck with going directly through their financial institutions CC/Debit from the Premium store?
  3. Same here. Had one match that was fine (the first) and every match after I get kicked off the server. Regardless if I die or not, match ends, booted.

    Premium shop not working?

    I've been getting "Payment Failed" regardless of what card I use (Visa or Mastercard. I won't use PayPal due to a request awhile ago for $1,00,000 from an unknown person (not joking) and have since shut that account down. So I don't know what to do with regards to purchasing Santa Crate's.

    Loot boxes and the lesson learned

    @handybilly I speak honestly when I say this, I understand where you're coming from here, I really do. However, lets look at my situation for a second, just a second. On the business my wife and I just started, we just forked over $699 for graphics design on a logo that we may or may not like (ie a gamble). It was our choice as was starting the business, which by the way was around a $60,000 "gamble" (without taking out a loan).... Life's full of "gambles" and they all have one thing in common, "Choice". You have the "Choice" to either take one path or another and no one forced you to buy them just like no one forced us to start our business.... NOTE: Yes I read your post in depth, but your #4 took away almost all of the good points you were giving people with the summary of "No more Loot Boxes Ever" comment. People can spent their money however they wish, the US is a "Capitalistic" country after all...

    The Russophobia on NA

    Not left over cold war stuff, it's bleed over from World of Tanks and it's been around in World of Warships since I've been here (OBT). Now I have about 3 maybe 4 games in tanks racked up, but apparently there were some imbalances with that tank line over there. Even though Warships has a different team of devs, people used to and at times still do, point to the fact that WarGaming is one company. What they can't comprehend is the concept of different departments, different studios, etc. I've made several posts, even some pretty in-depth ones explaining where WG's HQ is (Minsk), and when they declared Independence from the Soviet Union in '90/'91... But honestly, those that claim "Russian bias" in Warships don't want to hear logic, facts, etc. The only thing they want to hear is drip fed sympathy for why they died in a match to a Russian Cruiser with the citadel the size of the Yamato and can be detected from space OR how they died to a Russian Destroyer with minimal range, horrible concealment, torps are for cosmetic...

    Say hello to your new german overlords.

    Love the downvotes to this quoted post... Translates to: you won't break a written contract, risk x,y,z, all over speculation of a ship that is a work in progress for people you know nothing about... lol Gotta love people sometimes...

    WG, charge me 14.99 a month........

    Pretty much this... But @Cirdane if you are looking for preferential matchmaking, judging by your last sentence, that will probably never happen in this game. If it does, paying not to lose 10 times in one day because you think it's rng will be the least of everyone's problems. Why? Because the game will be on life support by that time...

    How long for Subs to be ready for Randoms?

    If anyone is in real estate, now would be the time to list... It's definitely a seller's market. Don't take this as me confirming or denying anything. To be fully honest, I know as much as anyone else does with regards to Subs. With that said, it's one thing to be optimistic about something, it's a whole different entity when speculation takes over to the point of guessing how far something has come in development, etc. when in fact no on knows if that aspect will even be implemented... On another note, Big Rubber Ducky's are balanced and fun for everyone. They've been in the game before, I think they need to make a return. :)
  10. You missed the sarcasm apparently... You completely assumed you knew my area and situation based on my "ping" and "connection I pay for". However, that is not always the case is it? I am guaranteed, according to my cable contract, only 80% of what I pay for. More over, I am subject to throttling. Yet again, you "assumed" based on not even on my true ping, but my "in game millisecond rating" that I had a completely fine connection all the time, more over that very few people were on the system. To use this same line of logic, can I assume that because you are in fact in a very populated area with more cable options, better cable packages that you Computer is utter trash because you have issues with your connection and it's been that way prior to their move? Here's my PC that I built a couple of years ago (it's still got some oomf in it): i7-6700k msi Z170A M7 MoBo 32gb ddr4 geforce 98o ti OS is Windows 10 Pro So no, I honestly don't need help in tweaking anything and I was being sarcastic because I truly don't like it when people assume anything. Have you thought that maybe your tweaking your router/modem/computer has caused more problems than fixed? It's like the backyard mechanic that wants to fix that squeak in the engine. They spray some "squeak fix" on the block, next thing they know a "ding" is happening. So to fix that, they use some "ding fix" spray. That works too, but now a knock has started. They try some knock spray, but it won't work and suddenly the whole block seizes because nothing actually got fixed. I've seen people have a very similar problem in the PC world with those "fix my PC" programs you see on T.V. because the person in the box told them they had a slow PC... So they download the program and next thing they know that program has invaded every square inch of their system, bogged it down even more and more often than not, is a Trojan. Now I have to go in an wipe the system and actually fix it. I guess what I am getting at here, beyond the don't assume anything is, are you sure anything on WarGaming's end was broken to begin with before you started tinkering?
  11. Smh.. lol So just because I say I'm on a "rural" connection you assume there aren't a lot of people on the system. Well, thanks for informing me of where I live. Might I ask you for some advice then? Considering that in my area we only have literally one cable provider, who might you suggest I go with besides my current provider? After all, all the businesses and residents in the surrounding 30 miles are stuck with the same pos connection (it goes out on sunny days for good sake). But hey, you know more about where I live and my provider than I do. Enlighten me please. /puts-straw-in-mouth

    USD 90.00 for a Sub I can't keep?

    Hint: your not buying the boat... Move along now and pretend time is over.
  13. Huh, Im on the west coast and what's funny is that I'm on a rural cable connection (100 dl, 15 up) I had a 35 ms when they were in San Jose. Now that they are in Chicago, according to you, I'm at a whopping 35ms... Crazy I know...

    This is why I love you Mouse. lol Seriously though, not only am on board with everything you said, but I bolded the portion that I feel really needs to be driven home. Far too often some people will point to their win rate, solo or not and lay claim that they are the upper echelon for a ship type or even the entire game. Unless that player has, for example and I'm throwing random numbers out for the sake of the thread, a 65% win ratio for 250 solo games in every ship of every tier of every ship type, then well, they aren't the all knowing embodiment they think they are. Are they a good player? Perhaps, it depends on how they choose to spend their time. If they have a 70% win rate at Tier 4 and a 40% win rate from Tiers 5-10 with a total amount of games played of 10k and the percentages working out properly to have a 65% win ratio, I would say they are an excellent player up to Tier 4, but needs work and advice (if they want it) above that. However, we know that isn't the case most of the time. Personally, I chose the New Mex as my baby to relax in. At 1,500+ games and a 58% solo win ratio (for the most part solo, above 95% of my games in her are solo), sure I'm an "ok" player in her. I'm well above the server average and can make some pretty good game changing plays regardless of Tier. However, I am not above learning new things in her and I fully recognize where my weaknesses are. Those being higher Tiers, Destroyers and some Cruisers. I don't know why people have a problem with acknowledging their weaknesses, especially in a video game. If a person can see them, they can learn from them and become stronger. By ignoring them it only strengthens the weakness. Anyway, have some of the finest cheese on the house. Just have them bill it to me. :P

    Ah, thank you sir, I stand corrected. How could I forget the Cruiser without a citadel, the second highest average damage, 3rd highest win ratio and kill/death ratio, not to mention a subjective tied for first (Harugumo is there as well) pain in the rump Destroyer. lol, but yes you are most certainly correct.
