  1. Like many others I have seen I was only missing one ship from the list ... Played a couple games in her .. Shes not bad but not outstanding to me. Thank you WG for the free Premium, she is a welcome addition .
  2. My favourite memory of this game is from Project R. I remember the excitement of the process ... will i manage enough Pearls ? What are the mystery rewards ? It was new and fun and surprising. Then I got the R and it was the ship that really taught me how to play IJN DDs .. It gave me an " Oh .. THIS is how it is supposed to work " moment My wish .... I do have most things in game ... perhaps a '41 West Virginia
  3. Second game in this. It's not a terrible DD. Granted this was a t4/5 match but still ... not bad.

    Worst Premium ship in game

    I won't call any of the ships WG has provided for free bad or as worst Premium in game. WG has given players some great free premiums ( Kamikaze R, Graf Spee, Benham, are all solid ships ) and a good few mehs ( Mikasa , Aigle etc ) but in an effort to avoid the hypocrisy of looking a gift horse in the mouth I will stick to ships I've bought or got from crates. 1. Mutsu : The poor armour and the shells propensity to shatter make this thing a permanent port resident. 2. Okhotnik : I know many many people love this thing. I loath it for its slow ROF on the guns and its feeling of sluggishness due to its length. Yes the torpedo barrage of doom is fun, but not enough to overcome the irritation with the rest of its performance. 3. Dunkerque : I have never had a game in this ship that tempted me to hit battle with it selected again. Unlike many according to some of the preceding posts, I kept all my ARP ships and although I can't give a rational explanation why, I always had more fun and better games in my ARP Kongo than in it's line equivalent. Finally for all those who said Yub Yub is the worst.... she isn't. She's fragile and small and under armoured ( and my first ever ship ). Challenging ? Yes. But she is not the worst. Not even close.

    Ribbons in the Air - 23rd - 29th

    Some ribbons while doing coop French token farming
  6. Thank you for the clarification Kami. Thank you also to all the volunteer Marauders. Without ya'll there would have been no event.
  7. Much appreciated sir. Thank you also to all the other Marauders that volunteered and put time in for a fun event.
  8. I am also in the spot where I sank a Marauder and got no rewards. I did send in a ticket and notwhitstanding what it says on the web about immediately after the match ... I was told this.... So it looks like we need to wait at least till nest sat before hauling out the torches and pitchforks. I do wish they hadn't had 2 different time lines on the same page.

    Stinking Marauders

    For the record I sent in a support ticket and got the reply that ... So I will wait patiently till next Sat to raise hell.

    Stinking Marauders

    Is there any specific recourse for not getting the rewards at the end of the round ? Trouble ticket ? First time ever in one of these events where I actually sank the ship. So I don't have have the flag yet and I saw no reward at the end of the round. Anyone know if it is immediate? Is there a slight lag ?

    I had a draw in Savage battles as well. Ram kill at the end. Both died as a result. No survivor ... Draw.

    Tier 6 Trouble - 15th - 22nd

    Bottom tier in a T 6/7/8 game ... and I lived .. and even sunk something! I don't know why I like this ship, it's objectively under-powered .. but fun.
  13. There are a few that stand out to me in terms of good premiums, specifically ones that if you learn to play them well, can end up being good teaching ships. Some were earned ships, some purchased. Some are no longer available unfortunately. DD: Kamikaze R, Kidd, Lo-Yang, T-61, Campbeltown, Vampire Kidd and Lo-Yang for overall utility, Kami R because it was one of the first ships I earned in game with a frankly VERY good series of missions ( oh and its still OP ) , Campbeltown and Vampire I think are great low tier ships that teach very well how to stealth torp in Campbeltown and how to play gunboats in Vampire. CL/CA: Atago, Graf Spee, Exeter, Perth, Molotov All good ships that can each teach lessons, HE in Atago , punishing broadsides in Graf, Driving CAs and how to succeed in Exeter, light cruiser warfare in Perth, and learning how to use Stalinium shells at range in Molotov BB: Ishizuchi, Arizona, Massachusetts, Warspite, Giulio Cesare, Tirpitz Ishi just for fun, Arizona's guns, Massa's secondaries, Guns Guns Guns in Warspite and GC , and guns / secondaries / torps and turtleback in Tirpitz

    Ranked Sprint / T7

    Ranked Sprint genuinely is the best time to get an idea of the ranked system then. It's also a good way to improve skills and get flags. It is, in general taken much less seriously so angry team mates seem much less frequent. Give it a try, you will likely have good fun.

    Ranked Sprint / T7

    I have enjoyed every Sprint season so far. This one as well. Regular ranked I find too frustrating in the gain gain lose lose of stars and I'm just not good enough it seems to succeed quickly in normal ranked. For this sprint season I used all of my T7 dd's. It took me longer than it might but it was fun to bring them all out as often they just gather dust in port. Thank you Jervis, Haida, Mahan, Blyskawica, Z-39, Akatsuki, Sims, Leningrad, Shiratsuyu and Gadjah Mada
