    small improvement on cv?

    If there were a system where a player could say, loan credits to a red CV player in exchange for leaving them alone - I'd be all behind that change! Especially as when I bring the Halland out and not a plane to be seen, but sail in Somers and you're against an FDR - good thing the .45 rounds for my 1911 that I use for AA in the Somers are free - unless that gets economized too!

    WG is drunk

    I agree with what you are saying about lower tiers - other than knocking snowflakes there isn't much of a reason to play below tier 5. Unless you want to seal club by putting a 21 point captain against what could be newer players :) But in all seriousness, the one game mode that I thought had a lot of promise was the one where multiple lower tiered ships fought against a few higher tier ones - that was fun.

    small improvement on cv?

    I think I understand your question - you don't want to take all of a flight of planes into an attack? I'm not a CV main by any measure, but what I've seen CV's do is right after take off they will "drop" their bombs/torps/rockets by attacking nothing - which sends half the flight back to the CV to rearm - at least that's what I've been told they are doing when I asked in game.

    Which coal and steel ship should I get?

    ^^^ Stalingrad comes with hamburgers and hotdogs for grilling - if angled right only way to kill a Stalingrad is by burning it to the waterline. Does hit super hard - and from a distance. I hit 3 cits on a petro one time from almost max range (in the petro's defense, I wasn't spotted and it was early in the match so he wasn't worried about torps yet so going in the straight line) and I've gotten cits on BB's in the 10-15km range. Agree with Pomm comment too - its pretty solid in random - haven't played it in awhile though.

    Why did/do players leave?

    I used to play daily - couldn't wait to get home from work and logon! A lot of the excitement from when I first started has long gone, though I still enjoy playing, but I think its really the lack of new maps for me makes it less compelling than doing/playing something else. Sometimes its just really redundant - oh this map again - 3rd time in a row...

    Staying Positive in World of Warships

    I personally didn't get that, and while I don't like CV's in general, and don't like the rework at all (other than, it does make CV's more enjoyable to play - though I completely suck at them! I don't think I've broken 50k damage in a match as a CV since the rework). I get that some of us (i.e. I have) paid real money play the game and that makes it hard to leave a game because of your investment, at the end of the day, I don't think WG is going to reverse course - though I'd still love to see a no CV battle option! - so if you no longer enjoy the game, why still play? From what I've seen in played the last couple of weeks, the number of CV's being played has gone down, especially when I'm in an AA spec'd US CL! So this is a good thing! Anyway, I still enjoy playing the game, I just roll with the changes and try and have fun. If WG ever asked my opinion, I'd tell them to either get rid of CV's completely or give us the option to have a no CV battle option. Its not that I think they are OP or anything, but that playing a match with a great CV player on one team and a bad CV player on the other side does really skew the match - much more so than having the same situation with any other class of ship. If anything, there is even less of a counter to CV's now then before. But that's just my own opinion.

    Staying Positive in World of Warships

    No - I don't think that's what Zoup was saying at all - I think that what he's trying to say is that if you can find no positives to the game (or really any game) then why play it? Aren't video games supposed to make us happy when we play them? If not then why play?

    1x Anniversary Container is not enough compensation

    Sorry if I sound disrespectful - but shouldn't it be crate - not crates - plural - for example, I know of at least 3 -winning - ranked battles that I did not get credit for - so the for loss (or failure to gain) of 3 stars, I am compensated with a single anniversary crate - and I'm sorry, for as hard as it is for some - and I'm assuming I'm not alone - to win a ranked battle and gain stars, an anniversary crate is not adequate compensation.
