    Twitch 'super' container for some contest

    No. I know what the containers contain for watching twitch streams. This was honoring some contest or something. I can't read the special announcement because I've restarted the client since getting it earlier today.
  2. Anyone know what's in it? If it's Premium Time that moron WarGaming activates immediately upon opening, I'm soon out of town and don't want to waste it.

    Understand that many in the US are mental midgets, looking for (and finding) offense where none is intended. They'll generally preach tolerance while practicing the most strenuous intolerance of anything they are offended by.

    Remember the little ditty we used to teach kiddies.... "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Welcome to the twenty first century, where the emotionally unstable are running the asylum.
  5. As a free-to-play player, I'm glad they've backed off the premium nerf. I have a few premiums from coal, free xp, and missions, and they should be left alone. If a premium boat is OP, then the opposing team needs to target with focus fire to remove the special threat to their team.
  6. @Ensign_Cthulhu thanks for the invite... ...however, many of the views / opinions expressed on allowing eligibility for daily missions fulfillment in Random, low tier battles are well thought through and I can add little. I will agree that it might subject many baby seals to far harsher environments (again, I speak of Randoms). Now the environments I refer to are: Tier 2, where the babies spend some small amount of time. Tier 3, where the babies spend rather more time. Tier 4, where the babies spend a good deal of time. Where's Tier 1, you ask? You may look at many hundreds of players' stats just off the Warships' homepage and notice that most all have SINGLE DIGIT battle counts for Tier 1, as the standard thought process is to get to the next tier as quickly as possible because that's where the 'better' ships are. Indeed, many have already purchased tier 2 ships (and some even tier 3!) prior to their leaving the protected matchmaking! Those with double and triple digit tier 1 battles are not 'struggling' up the line (as I've pointed out many times to those who believe the myth of tier 1 seas filled with baby seals), but have found contentment in the gameplay of simple ships. FULL DISCLOSURE: It's been about six months since my last tier 1 random battle. As the Swan was killed by the devs to make it equally effective in the hands of a novice as of an experienced player (mission accomplished), I've spent time in the upper tiers getting my CA and BB lines in all nationalities leveled to tier 9, with a goal of researching all CA and BB lines to tier 10 (though I may not actually purchase all the boats). Part of the reason for getting 9's across all nationalities is to be able to participate in many missions with high tier and specific nationality requirements.
  7. Thank you for honoring the community's viewpoint! It really is an erosion of confidence when a special, purchased item is transformed into something unspecial. As some said, when Cesare shows up in a battle, it will be up to its opponents to point her out and treat her differently. As for your systemic changes affecting special, purchased ships (as in T5 Texas' greatly reduced effectiveness as an AA monster due to 'unlimited planes' in the current CV debacle rework), this is understandable and thus more tolerable.

    Why not let the players choose?

    Perhaps. I guess you'd have to research postings to see if the same few are restarting the topic again and again, or if new voices are in the vanguard.

    You're right, I am not.

    Why not let the players choose?

    Nope, constantly reposting a topic of tremendous concern and controversy and with an uncertain outcome is called casting another vote for or against this issue. Posting an inconsequential post on nothing important continually is called spamming.

    Why not let the players choose?

    The constant return to the topic shows an ongoing sentiment cared about enough to reintroduce it into the conversation concerning this game.

    Why not let the players choose?

    You stop "there" because this game is a naval gunnery game. Moreover, you stop there because this game follows the accepted pattern of surface warfare: DD ⇨ BB ⇨ CA ⇨ DD. The CV historically, BOTH in game and reality, has thoroughly disrupted this old, established triangle of counter. The OP point is valid, your extension of that point is not.

    Why not let the players choose?

    Because WG wants CV's in, and will only remove them when WoWs revenue drops precipitously and when surveys are sent out, CV's are the reason cited. Nothing really changes as long as crack addicts whales continue to subsidize this game, no matter the mistreatments it dishes out.
  14. Yep... gives you a way to vent.

    FLY STRIKE WIN Carriers worth it?

    I look at the 1st CV as a free port slot and one premium day. I look at the 2nd CV as a free port slot and three premium days. You can sell the CVs for silver after the event, and you get some flags, but the first two sentences are the real value of the quest. ...oh, and as @_1204_ said, you get some coal.
