    Whose LOL Idea what this?

    This statement can be modified for a large number things in game for the past few years. All realism aside, it "works" just like WG wants it to "work." It could even become WOWS motto. And on a similar sound design choice in game - ever listen to any of the Minikaze DDs at the start of the game?

    Rolkatsuki's in the market for a t8 prem for Ops

    Hi @Rolkatsuki Personally, Tier 8 BBs I have been enjoying in OPs have been Tirpitz and Kii - more the Kii since I got the great permanent camo from before the econ rework. I build both as secondary, both have torps. The Tirpitz has better armor and the Kii handles a bit better in my opinion. I have the Kii set up solely for Ops, including the commander. Since concealment is a non factor in Ops (IMHO) my build looks like this: Gun Feeder, Grease the Gears, Long Ranged 2nds, Manual 2nds, close quarters, and fire prevention. When I get the last three points I will get Adrenaline Rush. Hope this give you some ideas. Good hunting! PS. Right after I pushed "post" it occurred to me, the Odin would also be another in the same direction.

    Festive Tokens

    I will start by saying that I was initially interested in the activities put together for the event, enough to considering playing again. BUT after looking into the event...... I agree - there is nothing in the shop I find really worth grinding tokens for. Best thing I see is the permanent econ bonus for the T7 - and that I find meh. Further, I am really disappointed in the T7-9 "gifts," just bog standard econ bonuses. These "gifts" are really incentives to grind - WOT gives gifts, you log in and based on the number of years you have played they credit your account with gifts. You show up and you get a gift. While I don't mind the incentive, I take issue with calling it a gift or a reward. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary Definition of gift 1: a notable capacity, talent, or endowment 2: something voluntarily transferred by one person to another without compensation 3: the act, right, or power of giving Definition of incentive : something that incites or has a tendency to incite to determination or action
  4. Not the greatest news but better them being just deleted. At one point I would have cared, but now not so much. Just mostly curious. Thank you very much for letting me know! Good hunting.
  5. Well - been busy with real life, so have not been paying much attention to the game. When I logged into day found all my economic tokens gone. It does not seem that long since the change happened. I guess I missed the WG announcement that they were going away (did they make one??), but found this thread. Can anyone tell me what happened to them? Were they auto converted? Or did WG just delete them? Thank you in advance.
  6. While I agree with your over all point, I have to point out that one of your statements does not ring true for me. The way you frame the steel is as if it is a given that you will get all of it is an assumption in my opinion. Buying all 40 phases gets you the opportunity to get up to 8500 steel, the hidden cost is the grind for those phases and the possibility of failing grinding some of the steel. If the tasks are completed as part of your normal game play, then there is no additional cost. So if you play a lot, then buying the phases are a value to you. BUT if you are more casual (like me - real life comes first) or not as good a player, then you will have to spend extra hours grinding. If I am spending hours playing a game to just get something, that approaches work and I look at how many hours will I play the ship, how much I would make if I worked those hours or if there is something I would rather do. The other question that needs consideration is how hard are the tasks? I look at what the tasks are and how much effort beyond my normal game play it will take me to determine the value of the opportunity to get steel. If the grind is like the original PR Dockyard (not likely in my opinion, but WG has surprised me before) then the opportunity to get steel is worthless to me. The point I am making is that listing any items value that still requires further work should not be counted as if you will receive it . You are not paying for a thing - just an opportunity.

    DD captian

    Now there is collaboration I can get in to - WOWs and the Muppets. Having the different muppets as captains. Though come to think of it, it would be kind of redundant. 🫣

    Who have you seen in game

    @DrHolmes52 and I kicked around some toasters in COOP. He was top dog on the score board in his Odin.
  9. Good morning @Ahskance and @Boggzy, A suggestion / request for a modification to filter section of the carousel. I think it would be useful to add a third check box to the filter section in the sub-area of "Special." This would be to add a check box for Captains with max skill points. The icon could be the captain silhouette in gold or similar. There is even space for it at this location. My reasoning is that now that we can assign the same captain to five different classes of ship it is not always as easy to find a particular captain quickly. With special captains it is faster but with basic captains that have been trained up it can take some time. This is particularly true for old timers and collectors. The quality of life improvement to the players is that they could select for max captains and get all of them in the current ships, allowing the player to play those captains earning Elite Commander XP. Likely this has been suggested before but my quick search of the Forum did not turn up any results. Thank you.

    Geek, Nerd, or Dork?

    For self-analysis. Where do you fall:
  11. You should pin this post, as people are weekly asking about which ______ ships are “good.” great information, thank you for posting.

    people reporting because you play a cv

    I would put forth that the first experience I had of being down voted for using a ship was the original Belfast. Pre dates the Smolensk by a bit. However I would bet that this was not the first ship that people did this for. The British CLs were coming out and there were not a lot of British premiums at that time. I had not really paid attention to the reviews at the time and bought it as as a trainer. As it be came clear how OP it was, I it got down votes just for showing up in battle with it. I know this because it was stated in chat at the time.

    What other games does the community play??

    Valheim, these days. Worlds Adrift, before it shut down.
  14. Fair enough. But that same admin framed the removal of the 4% dispersion with no compensation as a global change. It seemed to me this indicted that they were treating like a change to spotting mechanics, not a change to a purchased good. The statement was made in response to a concern raised about the point. The response in my opinion did not address the posters concern - either intentionally or unintentionally. For me this and other things I have read on the topic keep me skeptical. The big question I am still looking for an answer for is WHY is WOWS doing this now? What is the benefit to them? Why are they spending the money?

    New Policy?

    Ah - I have some fond memories of some of the meme wars. Particularly around "salt" and "heresy."
