    PSA - Don't complain about MM in all chat

    And I bet you can count on doing 80K plus a kill being bottom tier with 18K games under your belt. The average player that has well under a thousand games played by the time they make it to T8 probably can't do that. That's my point.

    In theory, sure. I wouldn't be surprised if the average player ends up with a lower XP average as a bottom tier ship.
  3. The term counter play in the gaming industry means designing game mechanics that allow for a player, through the use of skill, to overcome and defeat an attacking opponent, even if the attacker has an advantage. Surface ships can only shoot down planes, that doesn't defeat the CV. That isn't counter play. No, that isn't a counter. All that does is help to mitigate the impact the opposing CV player can have. Besides, isn't a single ship that requires 2-4 ships to "counter" the very definition of OP? CVs are the only ship type in the game that are rock, paper and scissors all rolled into one, with no counters in return. That is bad game design.
  4. While I can agree that most of what WG is selling seems overpriced for what you get. That isn't the way to look at it. You should think I like this game and I want to support it. So what you are actually paying for when you buy something is to keep the servers up and running, the premium time, ship or whatever you get in return is just a nice bonus. When you look at it that way things aren't overpriced.

    So what is happening with submarines?

    The only reason people believe subs can't be balanced is out of a bias against stealth. Stealth is a sub's single strength, everything else is weak. That won't be too hard to balance. It's not like subs can fly 3-5 times faster than the fastest ships, and CVs can attack anywhere on the map without threat of being attacked in return, and have no counters in the game like CVs. WG said in a podcast late last year the feedback from the Halloween event was good and they will continue the development of subs. Late summer, early fall last year there was a "leaked" schedule for new lines release being released in 2019. RN CVs in the 1st quarter, RU BBs 2nd, Italian cruisers 3rd, KM subs 4th. At the time I remember people were dismissing this schedule because a new CV line seemed out of the question (the carrier rework hadn't been announced yet). Two of the four lines seem to be correct so far.

    We Need Italian Tech Tree Lines!

    WG publicly said (WoWs podcast late last year) they are happy with the feedback from the halloween even and will be moving forward with sub development. As for the timeline of late 2019, that is rumor as far as I can tell. There was a thread here, maybe back in the late summer/early fall, were some "source" showed a release schedule for 2019, with RN CVs for 1st quarter release, RU BBs 2nd quarter, Italian cruisers 3rd, and KM subs 4th. I believe this rumor was started before the announcement of the rework so the RN CV release caused some doubt about this source. Turns out to be right about the RN CVs (although slightly behind schedule), and it looks like the RN BBs are next to be released. We'll see if this source is right on the others lines.
  7. I'd like to believe that. I'm pretty sure WG will be buffing CVs over the coming weeks and months to get the population up.

    83 Strike planes shot down for a 90k dmg loss.

    I'm not sure what your expectation is. You did 90K in damage in a tier 7-9 battle, and almost all of that is direct damage so it wasn't just lucky RGN flooding. That is way above the average damage (Kaga average damage is just under 54K). Did you expect to be able to run away with the game?

    Floods? I Fear no Stinkin' Floods!

    Don't give WG any ideas when RU BBs are still in development.
  10. That not how averages work. If we were talking about a really small number of CVs games (say a few dozen) then there would be some skew. High tier CVs had over 35 thousand games played last week, and low tier over 34k. That is a very large number of data points.
  11. I'll wait to log back in until WG is offering better bribes than a measly week of premium time... Have tried not playing???? It seems to work.

    Are the DD Mains' Whining Days Now Over?

    YES!!!!! Rumor is, 4th quarter of this year for subs. RN CVs 1st quarter, RU BBs 2nd, Italian cruisers 3rd, and KM subs 4th.
  13. #FakeNews #DontFeedTheTroll #FactCheck The latest data has CV average survival rates at 72.83% for high tier, and 62.44% for low tier CVs. The next closet ship types are low tier BBs at 37.83% and high tier BBs at 34.70%, with low tier DDs bringing up the rear at 21.39%. http://maplesyrup.sweet.coocan.jp/wows/ranking/20190302/na_week/average_class.html
  14. WG sometimes give out gifts to entice people to come back and play the game again if they have been gone for some amount of time (WG once gave out free Giulio Cesare and De Grasse to people). I haven't logged in for awhile and I got this email. I was wondering if it was something everyone got it too or if its only for those that haven't logged in for awhile.
  15. Anyone else get the "A surprise is waiting for you" email? Sounds like its some container, maybe a super container. I'm guessing its a gift to lure my back because I haven't logged in since the day the rework dropped. Anyone get this too?
