  1. While I understand where you're coming from, and that wargaming didn't need to do this, I highly disagree with the sentiment that we were "given" these ships. I believe this is a scummy cash grab of an event, and here's why. The ambiguous marketing and the sheer absurdity of the grind are the problems that people have with this game. Puerto rico is not a great ship from what I've heard and seen. The problem here, is that wargaming first advertized that the ship was entirely attainable by good players. It is..... if you're glued to your screen for about 10 hours a day. The directives are absurd with one of the missions in directive 7 requiring 1.4 million xp earned in that week alone! You also have to tank 47 million potential damage in Japanese, pan asian, and british cruisers (lol. How), and grind 350 thousand free xp for one of the missions. That's enough to buy a Nelson. On top of these absurd requirements, wargaming has lied through their teeth with this event by claiming things like it's entirely possible to get for free and that gorizia, the t7 italian cruiser available on the third directive, is the same level of grind as the PEF last year. Even community contributors, people who play the game for a living, are saying that this grind is impossible. I hope this shows you where the community's anger is coming from. Definently no offense to your opinion. Here are some vids that explain the situation well. I highly recommend you watch Ichase's video as he lays out these problems perfectly.

    Aw. I was having so much fun laying out facts. Oh well. Cheers my fine big brained chum!

    Not really. If a company wants to try and screw me over, great. I'll take my business and time somewhere else. I have presented all my facts and logic to you. The only one who seems to be whining in this situation is you

    I definently agree with you and I think your best move is to close your wallet and take a break from the game. Believe me, I love this game too, but this is anti consumer and shouldn't be tolerated. You're completely right

    It's a tricky slope and can be misinforming Some people rant about the first version of the NTC which definently would have been a terrible addition to the game and I agree with. Others rant about how their BB can't dodge torpedoes and that they need to be able to shoot them out of the water. Yep

    100% agree with you here. Presenting you're facts and explaining your disapproval while closing you're wallet is the perfect way to get them to listen. The thing about the internet is that it isn't affected by freedom of speech or laws. Wargaming could shut down this post and the whole forum if they wanted to. The reason they don't, is because that would harm them and there reputation even more than it is now. People don't like being censored, and that sort of arrogant dismissal of criticism would definitely hurt.

    That's why I would take my business somewhere else. If a company doesn't respect it's consumers, I'll be more than happy to return the favor. In this case, it's pretty early on in this controversy and we haven't really got an official respons yet. I'll wait for that to come by, and then decide if I'll leave or not. Now here's where I feel you are wrong. Voicing your disapproval to me means closing your wallet and explaining to the company why you closed your wallet. I don't want people to think it's ok to sit there like a good loyal dog and take a beating. Money matters the most to companies. If people stop giving them theirs because of a controversy, they will wake up and either realize their errors, or continue on and let the game flop. We saw this with battlefield 5 where they sold an incomplete product at launch and lost 63% of their earnings because of it. While I always love a good debate with others online. That's why I haven't left the discussion yet. The situation still needs to unfold and we'll see what happens. Either wargaming will make a statement to make amends like they did with the NTC, or they'll double down on their bull and I'll take my business elsewhere. Only time will tell

    Now, now. I wouldn't go that far. America's having a pretty tough time this past decade, but it'll get better
  9. This made me laugh so hard! I'm done! Peak 200iq logic

    See my above response to harathan Edit: context is also very important. Where are you getting you're data? Is it a personal preference? Do you assume everyone playing wows lives in the US? Just a nitpick
  11. Welp. Better bust out the old haida lol I 100% agree with you in this case

    That's alright. You liked the game and made a bad purchasing decision. I know how you feel because I was there last year with the santa crates. Just be a bit cautious next time and you'll be ok.

    That's the group this cash grab is targeting (as well as the whales). They put a lot of sunk cost in before realizing they can't possibly complete it without spending money. they need to be warned and speaking out is the perfect way to do it

    Don't think this is a good analogy. As a customer who plays a game and has payed before, I am completely in my right to expect to be treated fairly. I am completely in my right to speak out against a cash grab that will definitely continue if people like me don't voice their disapproval. It's not that the coffee is hot, it's that you have to come every day to the coffee shop for 10 hours a day to get a premium coffee. In that case, I'll take the regular. It is. People can complain. That's what an opinion is
