    PSA - terrible teams are an opportunity

    To be honest, I think even a blind man with Davos Seaworth’s fingers could do better than some of the folks I’ve seen. Myself included on occasions.

    I got my Smolensk!!!

    I’d say April 8th given that the standard patch cycle is about four weeks.

    Using ships horns properly.. an FYI

    Considering Wargaming favors the lowest common denominator when it to IQ points, I don't think this will have much effect.

    Should I choose Jean Bart or Smolensk

    I'd personally go with Smolensk as that seems the least likely to return to the armory.

    ST, matchmaker changes.

    I'll assume Russian ships are immune from the rightful shackles placed on other ships?

    ST, Soviet cruisers

    Yes well, trying to rewrite history is something the Russians excel at. Of course that only makes it more delicious when facts are brought to light.

    ST, Soviet cruisers

    Well until the later half of last year when high-tier premiums started becoming a symptom of Wargaming's dysentery, the US didn't have any paper premiums and even their tech tree only had a couple paper designs. As for Japan, while their tech treehad paper patching, not a lot of their premiums were paper. This year just saw a lot of high-tier reward ships put into the game to try and drain stockpiles of various resources. It's also worth noting that both America and Japan (alone with poor abused UK) were the primary naval powers of the era. Russia's navy only qualified as a green water navy until the the rise of their submarine force to prominence. Even Germany's was more or less capable of force projection outside their territorial waters. Not to mention that a lot of people have gotten annoyed with how power creep tends to favor the Russians. Me, I'm of the opinion they're compensating for two things. The first is the fact that they were the laughingstock of naval war for quite a while after the Russo-Japanese War. And the second... I'd say they should just try praying to Slaanesh to fix that issue.

    ST, upgrade changes.

    Not like many folks were going to take this, concealment is just a bit too critical to give up with compensation.
  9. My interest would be peaked more by new game modes that offer interesting ways to play the game that are atypical. I had a blast during the Benham event playing the battle royale mode.
  10. Jesus. They’re plowing through lines fast. I’m not saying go back to when they could barely get a line out on time, but does anyone else think they need to slow down a little a let the meta get used to all this instead of changing it every other month?

    PSA: Operation Narai being pulled for repair in 0.9.1

    I’m personally at the point where I wouldn’t believe Wargaming if they told us a given day of the week ended in the letter “y”.

    ST, changes to test ships and Devonshire

    Well that killed my interest good and dead. My primary inter in this was the powerful secondaries, now I can pass it just like I did your butt-ugly Newt Trash.

    Goodbye, Smolensk!

    To be fair, they did pull Imperator Nikolai mere days into the sale when they realized just how potent she was, but I'd say WG has lost quite a bit of integrity since then. Why else would they be trying to jam subs into the current mess when CVs still have kinks to be worked out. That said, the first time they did the Christmas event, I spent almost $200 received I think around ten ships including my goals of the Gremy and NIki (received that one in the last crate). The next Christmas where I bought a batch just for the heck of it and didn't receive a single ship (whereas the previous year a similar sized batch earned me two on average) taught me that if I want a premium, I'd better get it ASAP.

    Changes in the armory

    Translation: Get your coal harvesting pants on because these may not be coming back and might only be available through St. Nick. So glad I already have both. I'll confess, I spat out my drink when I read the first part of this since I was at least vaguely aiming for the Flint and Black and almost panicked at the thought of not being able to get them, but this reassured me that my decision to keep putting off getting them in favor of Stalingrad, then Bourgogne, and now Somers was the right decision. I'll confess that the main reason I'm eyeballing this ship is because of those sexy secondaries. Well, I haven't gotten a Free XP ship since the Alaska so this is nice.

    Premium Ship Review #140 - Siliwangi

    Last time I was this early, people were [edited] about Benham being the grind from hell. Glad to see that Nurgle appears to have released his hold on you. as always, your reviews are wonderfully informative and assure me whether or not my decisions about premiums are wise. And it appears that wargaming is focusing a lot of effort on reward ships while normal premiums suffer. Not sure what your schedule is like, but of the currently unreviewed ships, I’m hoping to see Somers since that’s my current steel-based target.
