    Mouse Presents: Screenshot Theatre

    What the heck, I'll play along. I've got an entire folder on my computer dedicated to screencaps from this game, with one particular sub-folder full of 'glory shots' for my screen saver. Let's see what I can dig up.... Here's one from just after they added in the lighting effects for muzzle blasts, I took my Kii into a training room for some glory shot pictures and was checking out the effects while I was at it. Somewhere in the course of spamming the screencap key, I got this. Pretty neat how all of the shells (except for those from turret 1 which fired first) are still perfectly lined up. These two shouldn't need an introduction, but they show why certain mods are just awesome. Now for some real action, anyone remember when the Raptor would suddenly take off and practically run away from your team? I had it happen a couple times and got the pics to show my vain struggle to chase it and slow it down with my Mutsu. One last one, this time in the category of major derps. To be perfectly honest, I can't even fully remember what happened to cause this, but I suspect it was distracted driving.

    Alaxender Nevsky ..................

    Yep, a bunch of us tried to get them to change their minds on this to no avail. There are multiple dumb arguments and excuses WG countered with, stuff like " you just don't want someone else to get something for free" and "the credits and experience the camo earned you are compensation" and more. The fact of the matter is, I paid money to unlock the dang T10 Russian line cruiser camo and now it is gone. Even the 'credits and experience' line of [edited] doesn't cover my situation, as I unlocked Moskva only a few months ago and have a grand total of around 24 co-op battles in the thing. That's not even enough to begin to make back the original unlock cost. So the way I see it, WG now owes me either the cash price of the doubloons that it cost to get the camo, the amount of doubloons it cost to get the camo, or the camo for one or the other new T10 RU cruisers. Until such time as TRUE fair compensation happens, they have seen their last cent from me, and I've put up with a lot of their [edited] in the past without taking this step. This was one step too damn far.

    ST 0.9.5, changes to test ships

    It takes a lot of skill and practice to get right, but it can indeed be done, and is darn good fun when you learn to get it right. Luck also plays a notable role, but that arguably goes for everything in this game.

    Moskva Perma Camo

    Like me, with a grand total of a whopping 28 co-op battles played in the ship since I got it around Jan/Feb this year. No way in hell have I managed to even make back the credit cost of the dang ship in those battles, let alone earn anything extra that could remotely be twisted to fit under the title of 'compensation'. This is straight up robbery, as I've said on a couple of the other threads where this came up.

    Developer Bulletin 0.9.5

    Don't worry, I did pick up on the sarcasm. I just saw it as another opportunity to explain yet another reason that this 'compensation' ticks me off. I've played a whopping 28 battles in the Moskva, so I have a pretty good reason to say that their logic is complete bull. I have definitely not even earned back her purchase price with her yet, and I certainly won't be able to do so before the patch, as I sold the dang thing to try and recoup some of my credits, thanks to the [edited] way they've chosen to 'compensate' us.

    PT, balance changes

    Now if only we could get them to show NM and AZ some love in the reload buff department, not to mention the Cali and its issues.

    Developer Bulletin 0.9.5

    You missed the part where I said that it was the last thing I was purchasing from them, at least for quite some time. Additionally, the Hyate is actually the sort of thing I want to see them put out more of, a decent and balanced ship with a few things that make it stand out from the other ships of it's type from the nation's tech tree. Not to mention I had the whole Hyate procurement planned out for months. It's the ship I had been most looking forward to since the Georgia was released.

    Developer Bulletin 0.9.5

    Actually I only got Moskva and the T10 permacamo shortly before the line split was announced for testing. It was January or possibly early February at the latest. The RU cruiser line was never a high priority for me.

    Developer Bulletin 0.9.5

    I've been pretty quiet on this line split matter for a couple weeks now, partly due to being busy with my job, partly due to being disgusted with the situation, but I feel this is likely the last chance for us to make some kind of appeal, so here it goes. Guys, come on. We paid money for the 5k doubloons to get the T10 RU cruiser premium camo, not the T10 RU premium cruiser camo, there is a significant difference between the two. To quote one particular favorite video game line, 'Don't hand me a mug of sheep's piss and call it Colovian Brandy.', getting a camo with the new Moskva for 'free' that people who didn't spend 5k on the camo will actually be getting for free is not compensation, it's robbery. Bare minimum, those of us that paid for the camo before this was announced should be getting some real form of compensation, be it getting the camo for one or the other new T10 RU cruisers, a refund on our doubloons, or some other equivalent form. Personally I'd also prefer to not have to regrind an extra T10 cruiser because WG had a whim to change it, as I am severely lacking in time to regrind now ever since I got my new job. It also doesn't help that I have elected to play co-op and ops almost exclusively since about 2017-2018, as I found random battles hit a point where they just weren't fun anymore. Admittedly, those two are personal issues, but I'm dead certain that my situation is hardly unique. This change in policy has caused me for the first time since I started playing to seriously consider if I want to continue playing this game anymore. For certain it makes it highly likely that the money I spent to expedite getting the Hayate and getting the black enamel camo will likely be the last WG is going to see from me for a good long while, and the only reason I even went through with that is I had been planning it since Hayate's release method was announced and had the cash specifically set aside for it. So come on WG, do the right thing and at least throw us a bone by giving those of us that paid doubloons for the the RU T10 cruiser camo a dog-gone RU T10 cruiser camo, not some 'you get to "keep" the Moskva camo' [edited].

    Azur Lane

    I wasn't far off from that, ended up with quite the collection of spare captains on both my accounts, with Yukikaze, Kaga, and Atago forming the majority on the IJN/Axis account, while the USN/Allies account wound up with quite a few Montpeliers. It's a good thing I actually like the sound of the VAs on Kaga, Atago, and Montpelier, I can at least tolerate Yukikaze, though I do try to avoid playing a ship with her driving too many times in a row.

    Azur Lane

    I'd happily lend you one of mine, I think I might have one or two to spare.... (I've also got a boatload of AL Atago captains, in my defense, I was trying to get a single Prinz Eugen captain and RNG trolled me a bunch on the random containers.)

    ST, Soviet cruisers

    Actually, no. Starting with this line split, WG have decided that we no longer get the replacement ship or even keep the perma camo from the Moskva. The currently 7 page thread about 'ST, Soviet cruisers branch split' has covered all of this (and the resulting uproar from myself and others) in detail. The TLDR version is that if you currently have Moskva and it's purchased perma camo, you get the new coal version of the Moskva (which comes with a camo anyway) and no compensation for the doubloon camo. Additionally, you do not get the Nevsky for free, and you have to research it all over again. Needless to say, a great many of us are very unhappy with these terms and have been raising a ruckus over it, trying to convince the seemingly dense devs that this is an unacceptable betrayal of our trust and, bare minimum, fair compensation for our previous unlocking of the RU T10 cruiser is due. Giving us a coal version of the old boat (which some of us didn't even ask for) is not going to cut it.

    ST, changes to test ships

    I partially agree with you. Where I disagree is that these slow boats have gotten progressively more difficult to play over the years as more and more ships that are either outright faster designs or have been given a-historical speed increasing refits get added. If all of the other ships from those tiers, such as Bayern, Normandie, Lyon, Koing, etc. were limited to their original design speeds, I wouldn't really have any complaints, as it would level the playing field. Now where I agree with you 100% is that the 21kt Standard Type BBs should retain their historical speed (buffing that would be ridiculous and merely add to the existing speed buff problem), but could use some love in the gunnery department. The buffs I had in mind with my previous post were all gunnery based. I have never once had any notions of giving the 21kt USN BBs any sort of 'miracle refit' like so many of their counterparts get.

    ST, soviet cruisers branch split

    Exactly my sentiments. I've weathered a heck of a lot of crud in this game, sometimes because I had faith that things wouldn't turn out so bad, sometimes because it was pretty much the only game in town for the kind of boat action I was looking for. I'm honestly feeling really betrayed right now by this whole announcement and have basically put playing the game on hold for the time being, pending any new developments with this turn of events. Before this announcement, I was looking forward to taking advantage of my reduction in hours at work because I wanted to finally finish a couple of grinds that I hadn't gotten through yet. Now, I'm very hesitant to put any more time or money into this game, especially when I will eventually have so little time to devote to this hobby once my hours go back to normal, meaning that I likely cannot do much in the way of grinding or events. Instead, like I mentioned in my earlier post rant, I've been putting more and more time into Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts, partly because it's still fun for me, partly because it happens on MY schedule, and partly because they haven't been pulling crud like this. Now, if this decision is changed, I will likely return to World of Warships, but WG should take note, they have permanently lost a good portion of the good will I had for this game thanks to this streak they've been on so far with decision making since about mid 2019, this RU cruiser thing was just the latest nail in the coffin. The lid isn't fully sealed yet, but it's starting to get close.

    ST, changes to test ships

    Then why not incorporate and announce both changes at the same time? Seriously, every USN 'Standard Type BB' below T7 + NY/TX could use some significant buffs, especially to either accuracy or reload speed, Cali is no different in that regard from what I've seen. I think the theory of it becoming a reward ship is starting to look very plausible.
