    3rd party and outside registrations...

    Events like the pirates/corgi's and now pumpkins are extra bonus weekends above and beyond the regular game. It requires that a very few individuals put in a ton of personal time and effort to organize, communicate and coordinate the 300+ people volunteering. For everyone else who does not have the time, or is just not interested, you just play your normal random games, and if you see a pumpkin and get the kill shot, you receive a nice little bonus :) Fem in particular juggles 100+ balls to make these events go off smoothly. Contact to with each volunteer, creation of each special account, and the countless messaging between everyone They are good fun for the volunteers and most of the folks hunting the volunteers through the weekend. I have had the good fortune to be chosen for 3 in past, and have added my hat for this also. It does mean I make no progress on my own account, and it makes juggling and organizing my clan battles a thing, but i personally think it important that the community work together, volunteering to add different events of all sorts to build a vibrant community. For the unaware - these look like they are simple ... they are anything but. So take it as it is ... A great little weekend bonus to help break up routine random battles, and a chance to give back to the community if chosen. Good Hunting ! Kar
  3. Well said Lord_Zath These more challenging and unique events are a lot of fun. They promote team work, and that makes better players in the long run. Sure they can be frustrating, but that makes beating them that much more rewarding ! Good fun

    Clan Battles Season: Crash Zone Alpha

    8v8 sounds like fun - but it will probably cut our participation in half. 7v7 is challenge enough the smaller clan brawls we have fielded even 2 teams - but 6 weeks 4x / wk for 8v8 is a monumental challenge for mid sized clans. Good hunting and good luck to the clans who can muster the larger teams Kar
  5. Very lucky. I even said part way through that video we had stretched apart a couple of km too far. I understated that part. While it doesn't sound like much, that extra distance apart makes this scenario extremely chaotic compared to how you can do this scenario. The try before this, we stuck a lot tighter, very little damage to any of us, and had every enemy except the two that spawn on the 1/2 line behind us dead by the time Rasputin spawned. It was very neat and tidy, but we had bad luck finishing Rasputin and tweaked our ship make up for the match in the video. with team mates across NA, we played that one between midnight and 2am the evening before, probably not the best focused by then ! Playing the game i highlighted in the video was far more stressful than my moderating suggests. one of my clan mates even commented to me after watching it - Kar, you sound so calm compared to when we fought it ! ;) was a lot of fun, but definitely, more discipline with tighter formation strongly recommended
  6. The menu where you select the combat mode, random, scenario etc. there is a little "select other operation" button. Select that and all of the operations available drop down for you. the halloween and the other scenarios the only operation you can go into that match making teams you up with others is the operation of the week, otherwise, you need to assemble a full team before starting the other ops.
  7. There have been a lot of captains saying it is too difficult a mission, or even impossible. It is hard, but that is to be expected, 3 Halloween containers are being given away here ;) It takes voice coordination like Discord, team work, and certain ships play important roles. It is very very doable and we did not even execute particularly well, with several very close calls to losing a star. (kept it exciting!) I hope this helps, and Good Hunting to you! Kar I play on a chg90 super wide screen, that is the reason for the black bars, sorry about that, but the big screen sure makes the game immersive!

    DPG Clan recruitment drive

    Another clan battles is in our near future. 8v8 T10, with 2 BB's allowed. We are looking for a few more captains to join us in the fun. We have a great group of competitive, but decent captains who make running randoms and clan battles a lot more enjoyable. If you are interested, you should check us out ! Kar

    Saving Transylvania = Impossible

    Not impossible by any means- hard to do, heck yeah - Possible with a random pick up group ? would have to be and outstanding pick up group. Spoiler : Best with friends/ clan mates, or someone sharing a discord channel to coordinate the team via voice. We went with 3 BB's, 1 CL that stayed with Transylvania, and 3 DD's who took turns smoking the Trans during the bad spawns. There is plenty of spare time for this op. Best for no one to enter the ring until the 3 BB's are at least even or in front of the Transylvania, the dd's a little further than that - the BB's kill the first two catapults, we even spotted a little further on the right side and got that catapult there, careful not to over extend in case Transylvania went left, then the cruiser entered the circle and started the push... deal with the closest targets, the DD's being the rovers , but careful to remain spread to deal with some of the close spawns - calling targets, voicing who will smoke next, who needs extra help on which side etc... push forward, fall back into the heal ring - careful not to get too far in front ... BB's MUST focus catapults with AP, CL spams everything called with HE, DD's individually take turns smoking the Transylvania, / and /or charge and nuke BB's Focus fire is required to quickly kill targets Closest targets in front of the group first, Dd's stay spread to counter BB's that spawn in front of the Transylvania - adjust throttle as required to heal or be slightly forward tanking. DD's again, smoke the Trans and the CL ... ram flags on the BB's who push straight for Rasputin at the end, shelling his escorts .. then all charge ... cl spamming fire, DD's spamming torps, BB's ramming Rasputin as required. We were hardly flawless, made plenty of mistakes. Took 3 attempts to nail it. A lot of fun, but certainly not easy. Wouldn't expect it to be for 3 premium containers - I won the Bismark Halloween camo, but i think that was the only camo of the 21 containers, so our bad luck, lots of other decent kit though, and some bragging rights of course :) Good Hunting all! Kar Edit: I made up a quick walk through video of our battle - Seeing is easier than reading and visualizing - Hope this helps!
  10. Thanks for doing this - The little extra loot is nice, but for me, the more captains watch streams, the better the quality of players should become., and there are a lot that can use some training out there ! (sometimes myself included ;) ) Edit: and well said SteelRain_Riflema another couple noteworthy streamers to add to your list" Mr Gibbons from the UK, streams long hours, 5 days per week until around 1pm mtn time Notser usually starts up early afternoon mtn time The streamers are almost all very decent and a very good resource to learn - ask questions, learn builds, play styles. Very informative for any struggling with any aspect of the game. It takes a pretty big effort to setup and stream like these people do. Even the less professional looking of the streams are putting in a lot more effort than most realize. kudos to them all for trying to help the community grow.

    What's all the fuss about subs?

    The play style looks a little dull for my taste, and i have concerns about BB's being able to counter them when the DD's are killed in the first 3 minutes ... but honestly glad to see WG putting research and dev dollars into a 4 year old game ... the day they stop, then we have reason to complain ;) Kar

    One Day Only - US Navy Birthday Mission

    It is, but for this event, it was stated simply "earn xp", and in the first chain, the first 2 parts are just earn, while the 3rd is and win... - not a big deal, 1000 basexp is pretty easy in a match
  13. It's certainly nothing special, but I keep forgetting to grab screenshots for this contest ! The Atlanta is a good looking cruiser to me Thanks for putting these on! Karandar, NA A better game, mind the pink ! Monty is just so much fun

    One Day Only - US Navy Birthday Mission

    The above mistake aside - Good Stuff... ## EDIT... ### Looks like the 3rd stage mission is not just "earn the base XP like pt 1 & 2, but Win a battle and earn .. so looks like a second mistake in the missions ...

    Sims, Yay! or Nay!

    I like her a fair bit, A solid DD - Her AA was more effective with the old CV game to me, although still fairly effective today, best build her as a gun boat - after the basic first 4 dd captain skills (Preventative maint, last stand, survivability expert and concealment) and Demo expert can add to her nastiness, some also go for IFHE to take the armor pen of her HE from 20-26mm , but that is up to each op ... her torps are slow - but sometimes you surprise an enemy with that too ! The t6 detection range is quite high, but you get used to it, and as mentioned above, she's fast and has long duration smoke... Kidd with the heal at t8 is a very solid ship, but probably a lot more real money. If the price is right, and you need a USN DD trainer, Sims is a decent bote that should serve you well ... Good Hunting! Kar
