    Racism, swearing at a player

    True, and that's a real shame. I'm of the opinion that each of us have an obligation to hold the others accountable. If someone can't conduct themselves like a decent human being and treat the others with a shred of respect, they deserve whatever reports, bans or otherwise they receive. I'm not blameless of throwing salt, but there're boundaries. Meanwhile, the internet is a lot less faceless than the worst offenders seem to think. Things follow people into the real world all the time, and it's not usually pretty when they do. -R
  2. Offer your congratulations for their free flags? -R

    Ships in Air Supply Containers

    Normal. You got the credit value of the ship, not doubloons. This round of freebies doesn't award those, I'm afraid. -R
  4. @LT_Rusty_SWO and @dbw86 are quite correct, per modern USN regulation. I can't speak to historic regulations or even those of any other maritime fighting force, though. While there are some inaccuracies in the in-game locations, especially considering moored/in port locations, I'm more than satisfied that for simplicity's sake they're (mostly) in their underway steaming configurations (more or less) correctly. -R [edit] Adding @GrayPanther2018 to the attaboy list since I was ninja'd.

  5. Oh, empty spots? I'll happily volunteer to take on the bustling hordes! I may not have any time on weekdays any longer, but my weekends are fair game and I'm usually good for an 80-odd games when I put some effort into it. Even if I can't seem to reset my avatar to its non-holiday form... -R

    Those droopy bridge wings though. Enjoy! -R

    1st amendment

    Hmm, good idea... Done. -R
  8. I guess it would have been nice for folks who work 13+ hours a weekday to have had a chance, or advance notice that the test was only available for three days in the middle of the week. Meh. -R

    Most luxurious warship you have been on

    Still technically a "warship" and the only World War veteran with which I've gotten underway. -R

    Yahagi much?

    I expect so. It'll be an interesting, different ship. Makes no difference if its stats are more or less of other ships, much more so the players' ability to read the situation and exploit it. I'm making a tongue-in-cheek prediction that her fire percentage is going to be up near that of Conqueror. [edit] Pfef... a paltry 13%. Barely worth noting. [/edit] -R

    A potato has a question

    To put it simply, yes. The additional credit income from premium time is not extraordinary, but neither is it insignificant. Many people have not invested a dime in this game, and that's a great thing. It just requires those folks to make the most of what they have. In general Tier VIII is viewed as being less profitable than Tier VII and to a lesser extent Tier VI. Tier IX and X are very difficult to play exclusively without a premium account, as only exceptional players can maintain a profit at that point without flags, camos and premium bonuses. My best advice is to limit your play in the Monarch to a few games a day and focus more on your Tier VII ship or ships. That's a more comfortable tier to play anyhow due to MM predilections. Use the profits earned there to support your Tier VIII games until they become profitable as well. -R

    Return of Belfast?

    I'd happily play Fiji at Tier 8 with that additional upgrade slot. I like Edinburgh (which is, incidentally, very close to what @MasterDiggs suggests, only a tier higher with meh-ish, but usable torpedoes) but having a smaller, more maneuverable Edinburgh would be fun. -R

    i hate my life today...

    That "Player Support" button up at the top of this page will lead you where you want to go. If you seriously want to file a ticket to have your auto-ban investigated, that is. Most of those auto-bans last a day, or three, or five (I think) and then go away or become permanent if it's particularly egregious. It will take longer than three days for customer support to tell you if they will or will not repeal the ban. Most likely. By then it will have already expired on its own, most likely. -R

    Previous Premium Ships not on sale

    That's fair. I haven't played Kronshtadt in a good long while (too busy grinding on other things) but I seem to remember her having very good credit-generating potential. I'll have to give her a go this weekend and burn a few of the old gamescom 2016 camos I've still got. She seems to earn 500k or so for decent games with no modifiers, and there are a few 2 million+ games posted on replayswows, though I imagine that's with every possible modifier and they are certainly exceptional games near 200k damage. I tried a cursory search of Musashi results and learned something rather interesting. Playing Musashi causes players to forget how to screenshot. -R
  15. Wowza, and here I was thinking that I had an absurdly full port. 250? Yikes. [edit] Seriously, though. I wish there were a really compelling reason to have all of those ships cluttering up my screen besides "Oh, hey. I might want to take Kirov out for a spin one day or maybe Ranked will return to Tier VI and I'm going to need Fairyguts for something." I've had a few ideas, but not a one of them are at all practical. Clan Wars-type map control where your clans' accumulated port screen ships guard your territory would be fun... but nutters to balance and let's face it, taking on a last gasp of fifty Chikumas isn't really going to be as much of a crispy-fried good time as it seems at first. Tete-a-tete where two players lead select ships from their port in a semi-PvPvE scenario would be fun... ish. Again, nutters to balance. I guess you could shift focus and control to another ship in your fleet until there are none left, but that's an untested mechanic. Outside of the new squadron system in Carriers II: DOTageddon I'm not sure if it'll even work. So, yeah. There's that. [/edit] -R
