    Dockyard "preparation"...?

    Is there something I need to click on somewhere to get my dockyard out of 'preparation' for Hizen? I haven't played in years, and am kind of unfamiliar with the whole dockyard thing. Thanks.

    The appalling behaviour of players in battles with PR

    I don't care either way: I don't care about the people being "bullied" (lol, really now?), and I don't care that they bought the ship. The people on BOTH SIDES of that interaction are too invested, one way or the other.

    On the economy of santa's gift containers

    I really wish, even once, I would get to experience what it was like to be able to throw around money like it literally didn't matter.

    I will not be buying premium anymore

    I took the launcher off my desktop today. I didn't uninstall, but I don't want to be tempted to play anymore. We'll see if the new year brings any changes, but I'm tapped out.

    CEO of Lesta comments on PR complaints

    I don't expect any changes, either. More than anything else, Wargaming reminds me of the Russian mafia. They'll just close ranks and wait this out like they always do. You only have to change if you answer to someone. Lesta-mafioso answer to no one but the Don.

    CEO of Lesta comments on PR complaints

    Wow, yeah, that's definitely it, bud. You've got this all figured out. My refusal to climb the Mount Everest of pointless grinds, and then laugh when the rich CEO tells us to collectively suck eggs, must be indicative of my overall laziness. But you know what? You're right. I don't really want to work for anything... in a goddamned game. Maybe, just maybe, that's the stupid nexus of this entire thing - that you and the company you're batting for think ANY EXPERIENCE IN A VIDEO GAME should be about work.
  7. I hold all parties accountable. You don't get a pass just because you were "following orders." People who don't approve of their unethical, miserly employers don't stick around. Everyone who has touched this thing - in any way - is thoroughly tainted.
  8. He doesn't care. And why should he? There are no regulations or oversight committees managing this industry; there are no ethics review boards to call them out on a scam. They can steal from the unwitting who buy the early doubloon boosts (without realizing that they will NEVER get PR by playing casually [or sanely]; they can endanger the health of thousands of teens and young adults who will binge play desperately over the holidays; they can recoup whatever minor losses they experience from a minority of players who have enough force of will to walk away... ... and nobody will stop him. He's basically God in this stupid, pathetic little digi-verse, he knows it, and you can pound sand while he lights cigars with your hard-earned dough. And if you don't like that, some other stupid lackey will replace you.

    CEO of Lesta comments on PR complaints

    Wow, I do not care for that "radio personality" at all. Is this the end of the world? Is it the end of the game? No. But I used to spend loads on Christmas crates, and they're clearly nerfed to hell this year, so that's out. And I might have shelled out coin for an event similar to PR... but that's dead because it's both a mediocre ship AND an unwinnable event. And what the Wargaming/Lesta brass are telling me - the message I am receiving loud and clear thanks to their campaign of censorship, misinformation, and rampant, unrestrained greed - is that they don't want my business anymore; they just want the business of whales. Recall that in the past year, we have seen the virtual disappearance of low tier premiums, and a mounting fixation on tier 9/10 "mega buy" boats that no average adult can afford (or, more accurately, should be paying top dollar on a digital good); PR is par for that course. The flippancy from those in charge is just icing on the cake. Mr. Lesta can go stick his nose in it. I think he's had quite enough money from me.

    Not with this company.

    Final Decision: Should I get the PR or not?

    Get the Alaska if you must buy something.

    Okay. I think you're going to find 'Mo pretty run-of-the-mill. Her credit-generation is great, but she's just an Iowa with radar (radar which will often bait less skilled players into pushing up too far). I have a friend who owns one and almost never plays it. While the additional ships may justify it to you, I think it might have been wise to look at the overall unrest here in the community and ask yourself: 'are people even going to be playing this game for long enough for me to get my money's worth? Will I?'
  14. Not even close. Nagato would have smashed Hood; so, probably, would have Colorado (if Hood didn't run). It's possible even that Warspite had an overall edge due to the more sensible layout, and I'm not convinced Hood would have beaten a Fuso or Ise. The unbuilt Ersatz Yorks would have wiped the floor with Hood. Hood was big, glamorous, and of suspect military utility. If you wanted a pure battlecruiser, the Renowns were faster; if you wanted a serious battleship, almost every nation had a contender or two. Hood was overrated - and the British knew it. There's a reason the Admirals were cancelled in favor of the G-3s. The design just wasn't that good (in fairness, the G-3s were the best warship designed until the late 30s).

    AND the big winner is... ... some Russian guy! He's laughing all the way to the bank thanks to you.
