    Is anyone else happy?

    Actually I am happier than I have been in a few years. With the money I have saved by not spending on Ships, I bought a PC desktop for the first time in decades, set up for gaming with a cool curved monitor. With the time I have saved from not playing Ships, I have been playing thru a dozen titles I have wanted to try now for years. I am actually thankful to Wargaming for the PR event. It really gave me the kick I needed to get away from the game and find something more fun to do. The hard part for me will be leaving the forums for good.
  2. Well according to the "numbers", looks like out of a worldwide player base of somewhere between 1 million to 110 million (whomever you decide to believe) WoWS accounts, fewer than 600 players actually completed Directive 7. Here is a link to the actual discussion if you are interested: So to answer your question, 557 players worldwide. Interestingly enough, during the same time period as the Christmas event, the WoWS Reddit members fell from just a touch over 70k members to around 65k members...........
  3. Just read some interesting numbers regarding the PR event on Reddit. Looks like less than 600 players WORLDWIDE finished Directive 7......... Course about ten times that number seems to actually have the Puerto Rico so guessing people spent some cash/doubloons getting the boat. It is still a pathetic number of people to cater an entire holiday event for though. Here is a link to the post citing the numbers:

    My Pound of Flesh...

    Well they did apologize for not telling the players beforehand, how much suck would be involved.... So there is that............... No apology for the suck, just that they didn't tell us that it would suck ahead of time..........
  5. The apology for "communication" was just a meaningless platitude and had little to do with the actual complaints of the players about the horrific grind. Wargaming picked one tiny bit of the complaints being leveled at them and apologized for that........... WoWS has shown all of us, exactly how they feel about our time and money with this event. They hold their customers in very low regard IMHO and I expect they will be getting it back in spades from their players.
  6. In Tanks, I have gotten probably a dozen free tanks just this past year and will have another one in around 7 days and I am not a particularly avid Tanks player. Not sure why you are not earning them in that game but they are literally dumping free premium tanks on me. To earn this new one, all I have to do is play one game a day for like two weeks.. No win requirement, just play one match a day..................... The "free" ships you earn in WoWS, especially recently, require so much grinding that calling them free is just silly.

    And people say the PR is weak...

    Actually have not read that anyone says the PR is weak. What I have read is players saying the boat is at best average to "meh" and not worth the grind nor the money.

    Anybody download tanks then never play it?

    I have actually started enjoying Tanks because they just throw free stuff at you for existing. Not particularly good at the game and will never sink much money into it, but it is kind of fun. Started playing it around the same time I did Ships but because of the crew mechanics, pretty much gave up on it, only playing to farm the easy rewards, especially those that applied to Ships like premium time. When they started their Twitch Reward program, gave it another shot. When I got that first commander with a bunch of skills, the whole game changed for me, everything made more sense and have been almost having a good time there. The chat is pretty awful, worse than what you get in PvP in Ships, so I had to disable all of it. Kind of sad that the whole point of playing a MMO is interactions with other people and you can not do that because of the amount of just plain nastiness so you end up playing it like a single player game.... Much like Ships, grinding up the tech tree is pointless so I pretty much play around tiers 4-6 when I do play. Generally play just enough to farm my rewards and move along to other games now as I never have enough fun to keep playing past a first win for whatever tank crew I am grinding and reward I am going for. I can have a bit more fun playing on the South American server where there are so few players on it that both teams are made up of bots and that feels a bit more like Co-op game but overall the game is like every other Wargaming title. Just a grindy game with interesting vehicles and no depth.
  9. Well if they keep designing events like this one for the PR, they will have all the time in the world to grind.

    So, we alread back to normal?

    LOL yeah that is it, only "part of the community" was bothered by the event............................... Even people on the WoT forums are making fun of Ships for the PR event and it has become the standard by which all grinds seem to be measured now with posters using "Well at least it isn't the Puerto Rico grind" when talking about new/upcoming events. My last bit of advice to WoWS is going to be the first bit of advice I got from you people when I started playing the game. Git Gud.

    Weekend Spree.

    I used to do like Cthulhu did and sell ships. Because of the snowflake type events I stopped and re-bought many I had sold. Since they are ships I don't really want to play what I do is use them stock and assign a free 1 point captain, often not even putting upgrades on them. You can easily grind out that one win in co-op with the setup and farm your snowflake.

    Honestly I am glad they did the PR event like they did. It was the push I needed to find something more fun to do with my spare time and money. For three years I was a daily player with occasional interruptions because of ISP problems or real life issues but never missed more than a day. The carrier rework got me to quit spending money, the PR event got me to limit how much time I spend playing their game. My new goals are now to play for that first crate and Daily mission until I get the "Easy" daily reward and then am done for the month. I expect I may play a bit more if they offer up some low tier ship I am wanting like the Katori or Dreadnought events but this holiday mess really made me understand how little Wargaming thinks of their customer's time and money. Before this, I didn't think much about them as a company, pretty much like I think of most companies as I tend to be a wary consumer. Now I am just repulsed and disgusted with them. To paraphrase that nasty little WeeGee, I have a job and a life, I have other things to do with my time.

    My Cat is Dying

    Well the thought that humans are no different than animals is just silly and flies in the face of actual facts/reality. The "idea" that humans are spiritual beings, the Earthly embodiment of God, is hardly something new and isn't just a western thought. It is found in all cultures around the globe. This concept is at the heart of Western civilization even if it is not a unique idea. What makes it special to us is because we tend to base everything on this premise including our laws and code of conduct. It is only recently that human beings are seen as nothing more than evolutionary meatbag accidents, put on the planet for the physical enjoyment of self or others. The degradation of humanity as a whole and the "worship" of other life on the planet is unhealthy and frankly, stupid. The consequences for this new idea are disturbing as we see our fellow humans as lessor life somehow and have no qualms about seeing them eliminated.

    Earl Grey (Shame on You!)

    The challenge offered by the Reddit community was for one of the Wargaming employees to grind the ship and not use doubloons or cash......
  15. This one change would make a huge difference in the crate experience in WoWS. If Ships automatically gave you the doubloons in each crate like Tanks does, the numbers of players who felt "ripped off" here would be far less. People are always going to complain about something for sure but in Tanks, even the other players are reminding them that they got a good deal on gold and that everything else is just gravy. For my $80 cash spent on the crates there, I received $105 in gold alone. If that had been the only prize, that would have been just fine IMHO. That is a nice, big, fat discount on gold. That also means every other prize I got was essentially a freebie.
