    Submarines are Coming

    Wargamming seems to be hell bent on running the current crop of players off from the game. First they cram a broken CV rework up our bums, they then insert a totally unnecessary and may I say unreasonable Research Bureau up there as well, then just as things were getting stretched out to accommodate the formers, submarines are being inserted also. NO SUB!!!! if you must then: 1. Full time hydro with no cool down on all ships 2. Max speed submerged 9 KT with high drain on batteries if the full 9 kt submerged speed is used. 3. If Submerged with snorkel 85% of surface speed. Snorkels were susptable to getting swamped causing auto close and sucking air out of sub could not maintain full speed except for very smooth seas 4. Max surface speed approx 18- 25 kts 5. Very slow reload speed for torps say 3 - 5 minutes. 6. Surfaced and periscope depth subs highly detectable by aircraft.

    TL:DR - Research Bureau

    Wargammming is hades bent on forcing unwanted crap down our throats. First they fixed an unbroken CV that is now seriously broken and they cant fix or admit defeat. Now we are granted the privilege of selling an entire line of ships for half price regrinding it and buying the ships and upgrades at full price, rinse and repeat numerous times and you can get one or two ships. I have every ship in the tech tree and 4 of 5 early release french DDs, there is no way I am getting rid of any of them. They could have accomplished the same end by creating missions starting at tier 1 that must be completed in order to earn the points without forcing the sale of our hard earned ships. Wargamming does not give a hoot about the community at large and caters to a few vocal super users for lack of a better term. I have spent an inordinate amount of money on this game and have nearly all the premiums other than reward ships for beta testers the HS fleet and azur lane and a few others. One should think Wargaming might want to curry favor from those who spend big bucks but I guess they think I will continue to support no matter how far and how deep they bend me over. Perhaps they will find out how very wrong they are.

    Developer Bulletin 0.8.7

    The reseach bureau is a BAD!!!!!! Idea. Far better just require ascending missions from Tier 1 to Tier X without requiring us to sell hard earned ships for half price, grind and repurchase for full price. The ascending missions will promote play at all tiers which is the stated purpose of research bureau. Making reward ships available for coal and free exp will encourage grinding and paying to convert elite exp to free which is the real purpose getting cash into the coffers. Eliminate research credits and sell all new ships avail in research bureau for coal or free exp the free exp will work the same a forcing a grind when the real hope is people will buy free exp and free exp past the ships

    HMS Ark Royal premium ship

    Have seen a few in random, so will it drop with the 8.6 update or be kept in secret till the anniversary of the famous strike on Bismarck
  5. Don't force me to sell my hard ground ships, I have all the tech tree ships in port with the exception of the tier X brit CV that I will probably just free experience as the CV rework is an abortion and really cannot see ever earning the exp for the tier X brit. I also have 111 premiums including the ARP in my fleet of 301 ships not counting the 9 rouge ships that i have in port, so habitually have not been opposed to dropping real $$$ on the game Give me missions to run with my ships by tier and type, will gladly play the ships for the rewards. Just don't want to loose the ships for half their value and repurchase at full cost as well as loosing the ability of playing those hard earned ships while regrinding the line. I am not opposed to grinding a line and look forward to the grinding of new lines as they appear. Pretty sure one could certainly come out with full lines for common wealth ships at least DDs and Cruisers as well as DD and Cruiser lines for the Italian navy but that require work to develop, is much easier to push us towards giving up hard earned ships and re-earning them and the upgraded hulls which requires no development other than a method to whole sale demount upgrades and stick in the inventory. I see what is really behind this, take all my exp from a line stick it on the tier 1 ship with the certain knowledge that some of the grinds are really a pain. Most players wont want to crank that grind so out comes the wallet and the elite exp on the tier I ship is converted to Free exp to bi-pass the pain in the backside ships.
  6. Don't have a replay, there were no islands or even ships to produce smoke in the immediate vicinity. Had been shooting at the Mass, It did go behind and island and did not reappear on the near side until very far from the island and only 7 K away and several K east of the Island. And with 23 K games played it should be rather obvious I spend too much time playing, to waste time complaining about something that did not happen.
  7. I have every tech tree and ARP ship and all but a few non steel premiums. This regrind idea is terrible. Dropping new lines gives me all the complete tier grinds I need in a year. Events and Missions to earn things provide plenty of opportunities to play my lower and mid tier ships. Given most events and the daily missions are tier V and up, I do not play IV and below ships much unless divisioned with a player that is grinding low tiers in a line. With the amount of experience needed to grind from 1 to VI it would not take any experienced player very long to club enough seals to get those ships ground out at the expense of new players who would get the plows cleaned routinely by players who really have no business playing at tier 1 - 4. Drop this whole NTC idea. If you want to give us a reason to play lower tier ships, drop some legendary type upgrade missions at 5 7 9 tier ships or 6 and 8 tier ships. Or just come up with missions that have decent rewards and require use of tier V for a stage, tier VI for a stage Tier VII for one. I would not go with tier VIII or IX tier requirements as that would put reward out of reach of many of the newer players who do not have VIII and up ships
  8. In my Bismarc today a Massachusettes appeared out of the open ocean no storms etc magically appears at 7 KM. That is just wrong the absolute best detection for the Mass is approx 12 K. Fix it war gaming please.
  9. I certainly did not get a motherland collection Item in any of my containers today and do not remember getting one yesterday. Pretty sure I have always received a collection item in at least one container a day and sometimes two of the daily containers. Cannot remember ever not getting at least one. A clan mate asked me if they had shut off the Azur lane collection as he had not received any also.

    Sov Soyuz

    Generally liking this boat but as I grind out the EXP required for the Kreml is it worth the effort to get the upgraded fire control system or will it just be a waste to increase the max range of guns already inaccurate at the shorter max range?
