    Had Enough Fun

    I've been playing for a few years as a freebie but back in December I purchased premium for the year. I'm not a great player little over 52% WR and I've worked hard to slowly raise my other numbers though they're nothing to right home about. I started playing the game for the joy of playing surface battles, sans CVs and only played one CV battle in 6000+. I don't hate them, just had no desire to play them. Don't have any T10 ships and only a handful of T9s but for quite awhile I was enjoying the game. Over time though I began to get more frustrated with a number of things in the game, the usual fodder for posts here but I tried to find ways to work around them and continue getting some enjoyment out of the game. I stopped playing about a week and a half ago and I have no plans to start again even though I have 300+ days of premium remaining. I'm not here to rant or whine. All I'm saying is for me all of the things and now subs have sucked the fun out of this game for me. There are many of you who still find enjoyment in the game and I say good for you (not sarcastically). It was fun but in the grand scheme it's just an arcade game and there are way better ways to spend my time.

    Open Sea - Why?

    I've read a number of accounts of the naval engagements around Guadalcanal and none of them reference ships sitting behind islands and/or reversing their engines to hide behind them. Many of them were night engagements and friendly fire was rampant. This game to a degree has evolved into nothing more than WOTs with multiple g Your diagrams and examples don't support the argument for playing peek-a-boo behind islands. PT boats aren't in WOWs and were not terribly effective and in almost every battle that's been sited the ships were in column and fought as units until damage or other orders were given. Destroyers acted more independently and certainly did run ambushes but no one in a cruiser/BB sat behind an island and pulled forward and reversed repeatedly to fire at the enemy and no BBs sat in open water bow-on and backing down or stationary in a naval engagement. And the example of crossing the "T" doesn't apply in this game, though perfect strategy in real-life not the best idea in this game unless you want to be back at port quickly.

Try Neptune's Inferno - The U.S. Navy at Guadalcanal

    time for assist kills ribbon?

    Maybe a participation ribbon, too. Before you all rush to type some hate, just joking.

    HE Spam

    To be fair I'm not a fan of it either, but... Maybe they could nerf it to the point they did flooding. They have minimal impact and now no one even cares if a flood happens. Slow down for a few seconds and then carry-on. So we could nerf fires, too, and no one will care about those either. Then there will be fewer ways the smaller ships can defeat the capitals.

    pr grind

    WE can agree to anything we want - No CVs, 10 CVs per side, more historically accurate stuff. It's fun to fantasize. But WG will agree to do whatever they feel is necessary for their business regardless of what WE may agree on.

    Your opinion about 1x1 ranked

    I find it interesting. I've been playing the Lightning and have a pretty good time with it. If the Graf Zep shows up though it's no hope, on to the next battle.

    Rank Sprint VERY FUN EXCEPT ----

    So far played about 15 battles in my Lightning with just under half DD vs DD, 6 wins - 1 loss. When a CV or radar CA/CL comes up it's brutal but over quick. Did beat an NC and that was fun. Overall kind of entertaining.

    Directives: How far along are you?

    Just finished directive 2. Will start on 3 tomorrow and may be able to get it done before the end of the event. At least I'm hoping to do it, wouldn't mind having the Gorizia but not interested enough to buy it.
