    What part of you not reading readily available information do you own? Are you really going to put the entire weight of that on WG?

    Kitikaze and Harugumo concern me

    I guess it depends on how many people are dumb enough to use your tactics. Tell you what, you lose your radar, hydro and ability to shoot people over islands and then you can talk about what is and isn't fair.

    dude, enough with this. You've beaten your dead horse into the ground. If you hate the game or WG so much, find another game to play where the situation is more to your liking. Plenty of people knew when the event was going to end and that they were going to involuntarily exchange boxes for credits if you didn't redeem them. I get that they pulled the boxes early and IMO that wasn't a good move, but every bit of information was readily available had you bothered to look. They don't owe you anything to compensate you for your lack of initiative or willingness to access information that the entire community has access to. If you don't bother to read the forums, website, etc, you are basically implying that whatever is up and coming isn't important enough to garner your attention. If it's not worth your time to read it in the multiple locations both in game and out of game, then why is it their responsibility to recompensate you or institute a policy that a very small part of the community really needs. They have enough to do without worrying about whether ten people didn't get information that the rest of the community bothered to take the time to read. Take some ownership of your situation and adjust your own routine so that the next time there is an event you don't get caught with your pants down. Nikopower is not going to come to your door and punch you in the face to get you to read the website, reddit, wiki, forums or anything else. You have to actually take it upon yourself to do that. Wargaming didn't fail you, you failed yourself. Learn to adult... keep yourself informed.... own your mistakes. I promise you'll be much happier in the long run.
  4. So is Hood on sale for two days or did someone fall asleep at the boat shop?

    With the abundance of radar and hydro at t8-t10 is there any chance of a reduction of gun bloom duration for dd's? if not, what, if anything, is being done to increase the survivability of dd's in these tiers?

  9. I get your point, but my experience in T8 ranked was that more of the players whom I encountered playing the Tirpitz had no idea how to get the most out of the ship. Yes, I agree that there will be those who buy that ship as an addition to their already extensive supply of ships that they play well, but the other side is that with all of the people buying boxes with tirps in them over Christmas and not having the time or inclination to maybe wait until they figure the ship out will plunge into ranked and not help a team nearly as much as if they had brought a different ship.   As far as fairness goes, it's a somewhat subjective concept when it comes to games. Some ships do better than others for many reasons. Is this unfair? I think most of us would say it is not unfair in the grand scheme of things.  CV torps a DD because said DD has crap air defense..... unfair or working as intended? There is plenty of time to grind lines in this game in order to get a t10. If one already has a t8, then its not that far for them to get the next two ships in the line and be able to play at the upper level in Ranked. I have no issue with the way they have ranked set up this season. I think it makes it more interesting.  One thing it does ensure is that those who get to where they can use t10 ships will have predominantly spent a significant amount of time learning the game and how ships are to function as a team as well as individually which in the end might raise the quality of play.   I reserve the right to be wrong, but I think we should reserve judgement until after the season because anything else is speculation on all of our parts.


  10. LOL I enjoy reading your thoughts here. I try to keep a level head about most things but every now and then I get a little passionate about some topics and come across a bit more personally than I would have liked to. I agree with your "more flies with sugar than vinegar" approach to most things, but sometimes stuff just hits me wrong and I take it a notch outside of that. I used to play this game with a framerate of 7frames per second but no lag. No Idea how it translated to the rest of my team, but I can only imagine if someone posted that people with single digit framerate shouldn't be allowed to play this game.  We find ourselves on a slippery slope when we start trying to look for arbitrary ways to exclude people from playing and making our own standard and perspective the sole determining factor for such actions. Anyway, I digress. I just wanted to tell you that I appreciate your thoughts and perspectives and look forward to reading more of your work.

      Thanks.  I would say 80% of what I post is babble, 10% actual thoughtful posts, and the other 10% drunken rants (not proud of those), so I guess it is nice to see someone consider my "contributions" as a body of work.  lol. 

      Completely agree though about looking for ways to exclude people.  Seems like there is a lot of that going on.  CHEERS!
