    Neptune's Inferno Author In WoWs

    I just finished Neptune's Inferno, loved it and just got a copy of Last Stand . . . Hornfischer is engaging and detailed and tells a good story. I dig he's a WOWS player, good man, and good ship taste, yes :).

    Your very first Premium was?

    Dunkerque - challenging first premium, but I learned to love the Dunk.

    I, I, I - saw a Claus....

    Good to see Claus getting back to Ships. He's an entertaining WoT CC, puts a YouTube video out every day. Not a unicum at Tanks but he's good and is very ehhh . . . . honest and pulls no punches. He's hilariious at times, IMO. Clearly he hasn't played WoWS in a long time, though - keep at it, Claus. But I say Welcome Back Claus! I hope there is more WoWS content to come.

    Lone Wolves recruting solo players

    Thank you for the responses. I will leave SFROG asap and then get in touch and apply to an open, suitable WOLF sub clan.

    Lone Wolves recruting solo players

    Hello, Is WOLF currently recruiting new memebers? I'm currently in SFROG but they will be pruning me out for not playing CW. I'd like to join WOLF, it sounds like the clan I'm looking for. I am an average, experienced player with ~4500 battles, BB main. I play every day a few battles to maybe 10-12. I play Ranked frequently and random solo of course. The few clan battles I did play with SFROG were not enjoyable and my availabiliy didn't align with the hours. However, I am open to trying them again. I'm just not into them as of now. Do I need to get off the SFROG roster before applying to WOLF? I will check out the in-game clan search in the meatime to see what's available. Thank you and appreciate any consideration you may extend my way. beatty_10

    The link below is a great resource for tracking your Snowflake progress. https://steel.in.fkn.space/ If this was already posted, my apologies, but I didn't see it anywhere.

    Master List of Podcast Episodes

    Kelorn and crew, I love your work. I've been a listener for over a year maybe more, and I've always enjoyed the podcast. You present very professionally, it's truly well produced. But I often find myself wanting to comment or give feedback or add to a discussion but there isn't, to my knowledge, a covenient and direct way to do so. Have you thought about starting a YT channel to allow for that? There are likely many other listener who feel the same. I also think you guys are really hitting your stride with Aeroon. It takes time and reps to get comfortable with a new co-host but it seems like you have a solid working chemistry now. On a sour note, what was up with Zoup in Ep: 109? He sounded bored and disinterested at times, particularly towards the end when saying goodbye. I did hear his intro when he said he was very busy and implied he didn't have much time for Warships lately bc IRL. Was it something personal getting him down or did he have an issue with another guest or host or something? He just seemed like he didn't want to be there and came across very negative, which is unusual for him. It was a distraction and contrasted with the positive tone everybdy else had. Keep up the awesome work y'all!
  9. 31 games, all solo. 58% WR. Saved a star 6 times. I started out in the Konig and blew straight to Rank 6 with 1 loss in 7 games or so, saved the star irrc. Recognized the Cesear was going to be more competitive and switched to her for the remaining battles. Got hung up on Rank 5 adjusting to the shifting meta, better gameplay but saved stars enough that it didn't slow me much. Went out with style with by sinking a Kongo who was backing around an island about to finish me off. Blasted him first and won it and Ranked out at the same time. Glorious I tell ya! I had a ton of fun. I liked the shortened format. It allows for a sense of engagement, achievement, and completion for those of us who can't play 25 battles a day. Can the two Ranked modes co-exist? I think so.

    Too Many Resources?

    That's what I was trying to say . . .

    Too Many Resources?

    I think some of the replies are missing the point. And that's my fault for not making it explicit. I didn't mean to imply that adding resources made the economy too complex to understand or play (and good point about oil and molyb being replacements for the flags, true, that's a wash). My overall point is, I think adding more currencies to the economy is a bad direction for the game. And for several reasons: 1) Adding complexity to the economy detracts from the appeal to new players. 2) With more currencies the relative value of items in the Arsenal, the Premium Shop, and the tech tree become more opaque, and this allows Wargaming to be more "flexible" with their pricing. 3) Wargaming is business out to make money in everything they do. We are not getting new currencies for free. I don't think Wargaming is trying to give us more stuff for free. No, that's not what's going on. All these new currencies have a underlying motivation to get more out of the player base. Whether that is more playing time, more premium accounts, more XP to get more resource crates, etc. I raise the question in my OP because I don't think Wargaming is going through all this work to add new resources for the purpose of benefitting us, the player base. And I think that's worth discussing.

    Too Many Resources?

    Does anyone else think Wargaming is implementing too many currencies, or resources as they call them? It muddies up the economy, robs it of clarity and simplicity. I thought adding coal and steel was pushing it, but now we see copper and molybdenum coming - yikes. And Oil seems extraneous now. Dev blog explains it below: https://www.facebook.com/wowsdevblog/
