  1. This "concept" is a complete waste of time and an annoyance. Every round, 4 CVs, sometimes with No "special/rental CVs" involved. Sailing any other type of ship opens you up to constant harassment by airplanes. And the battle scores show the CVs consistently ranking in the bottom third in performance. I rarely see smoke trains or mines. I have not been hit by mines yet and I am playing everyday. This just seems to be an opportunity for players who have not played CV to get some fun. 4 players having fun, 14 players playing "run for your lives." This is your idea of a good outcome? Unproductive, Annoying. A complete waste of time.
  2. Please reinstate "Naval Battles" to the left hand column. It is very annoying to have to go to clan and then naval battles, especially with the system lag.
  3. First announcement of economic changes (Roadmap for 2022) Jan 01, 2022. Full roll out July 2022. Subs announced three years ago and still not ready for prime time. What could go wrong? Just asking for the elephant in the corner of the room who is laughing quietly

    PTS 0.11.6 pt 1

    One major complaint that I have not seen mentioned. After your ship is sunk, you cannot jump to an allied ship, you are forced to go free camera. I used and enjoyed this option. When I get blown up in the first 5 mins, I enjoyed jumping to an allied ship I don't own to observe its performance and style of play. Now I can only watch from afar and have to keep moving the camera to follow the ship. Please restore this option. As far as the camo/bonus conversion is concerned, the mechanics seem well implemented, I will reserve judgement until the other shoe drops.
  5. I found the Economic conversion plan extremely opaque. So I ran a simple test. Maybe it’s a glitch on version two of the conversion calculator, maybe its not. I like the Happy Pi Day consumable camo because it carries a bonus for commander XP of 314% and Free XP a bonus of 314%, the other bonuses are irrelevant to the discussion. The test. I ran the calculator and it showed I had 2,310 Commander XP 800% bonuses, and 2,037 Free XP 600% bonuses. I then went to the Armory and purchased 20 Happy Pi Day Camos. I refreshed the calculator and it correctly showed an increase of 20 camos. However, the calculator showed that I now had 2,320 Commander XP 800% bonuses not 2,330. The free Xp numbers were off also. Now I have 2.044 Free XP 600% bonuses not 2057. Somewhere the calculator dropped or misplaced or inadvertently reassigned 10 Commander XP bonuses and 13 Free XP bonuses The Devblog from April 21 in the detailed conversion rules section states referring to expendable camouflages that: “Final bonuses to Commander XP are calculated from the direct bonuses to that type of XP, as well as from standard XP bonuses. For example, if camouflage gives +50% XP per battle and +100% Commander XP, it gives +150% Commander XP in the current system. The closest bonus in the new system is +200% Commander XP, so that would be the bonus given. Further The bonuses to free XP are also calculated from the direct bonuses to this type of XP and standard XP, taking into account the fact that basically free XP will be given twice as much.” The numbers follow those rules 314% should and would convert to 800% and Free XP 314% should convert to 600%. I purchased exactly 20 camos and received 10 Commander XP bonuses and only 7 Free XP bonuses something is wrong. I await your response and the response from other players. Screen shots are attached.

    New Torp Bug Fix Announcement

    Credit where credit is due. I was vocal in the forums about how WOWS had lost all credibility. I vowed (and maintain) not to spend money on the game. Today the response to the torp bug(s) was prompt, proactive and done without scapegoating. . I remain skeptical. Will they follow through with their promises and keep us informed, on this issue and whatever the next issue may be? Time will tell, but it is a new and better path. BTW The wallet remains closed for now.

    On the CCTP&Missouri

    "Not allowing CCs to show off up and coming ships" My first recollection of WG outrages came around the time of the WOT Sir Foch fiasco. At the same time WG completely changed some new ships, don't ask me which ones. This was done a few days before their release. The CC's had tested and reviewed the ships and posted videos on how they would perform. Then WG nerfed them and put them on sale. The CC's blew up and WG revoked the CC benefit of preview and publishing videos on new premiums before going on sale. I could be wrong but I think this was the cause of ichase's leaving the CC program. Anybody have a better recollection?
  8. "Based on your feedback, we’re going to add an alternative way of obtaining Missouri in 0.10.7." Devblog So you can try the gamble boxes for a while and then go for the campaign. Simple win-win for WG

    I'm devastated. To see such creative and hard working souls forced to come to such conclusions. To express my disrespect for WarGaming I have followed the suggestions in the thread in the last day. Unsubscribe the World of Warships You Tube. Check. Down check sub octivian initial post on this thread. Check. Contribute to AprilLittleWhiteMouse on Patreon. Check. Close the wallet (already done) Now some thoughts on WarGaming shortsightness. There has been a lot of talk about long term players don't matter since WG relies on new players. When I was a new player I tuned to the Community Contributors on Twitch and You Tube to learn the tips and tricks. I am sure the new players still do. They are being exposed to WarGaming perfidy and arrogance on a daily basis. Maybe the new players will decide to avoid such a toxic game. Finally, and this is not legal advice, but it seems that the discord disaster will leak. Given the hostile and abusive behavior and defamatory accusations and lack of remorse, WarGaming could well be looking at significant legal and financial liability.

    Missouri Bonus

    So, they are a) lazy, b) sloppy, c) or c) greedy. My vote is all three.

    It seems like this thread is winding down, so I would like to repost LWM's list of unresolved issues. The Huron fiasco is only the surface (most recent) problem. WG has applied a band aid as usual. They have not responded to the issues listed above. This tread (or some other method) needs to continue to focus on the necessary fundamental changes to make amends and to progress forward. WG needs to address these issues and report back to the community. Talk is cheap. We cannot forget. My wallet remains closed.

    It seems pretty clear that this forum thread supports Chobi and Mouse for their dedication and activism for the game. The Captain(s) idea is a tribute to them. BUT we cannot tell them what to do. If WhiteMouse and/or Chobi don't want or don't feel comfortable with this idea, that is great! If they want a Historic Canadian Captain instead that's great too. If one or both want to have a Captain named after them that's great too. This forum thread (currently almost 1200 posts) makes it clear that they have the choice in how to respond to WG. Whatever they decide to do, I will support them 100%

    Chobittsu Thank you for being you. I think the two of you as commanders would be delightful. Voice actors are available. You could write the scripts (a la Jingles.) It wouldn't cost WG more that a couple of hours of Santa Crates time to fund it.

    I have spent the last hour catching up on the forum comments over the last 24 hours. Here is what I see: 1. My compliments to Sub-Octivian for his efforts at transparency and involvement in the discussion. I appreciate the willingness to "own" the problem. I also accept the attempts to make amends (repairing the problem so it will not happen again.) 2. My respect for the career contributions that LittleWhiteMouse and Chobittsu have made to the community and the game has never been greater. Their courage and resilience and love of the game is truly inspiring. 3. The camos and promise of a cooperative/informed ship design are good steps. I think we need to advance Ensign_Cthulhu's proposal to have a LittleWhiteMouse commander added to the the game. I close with a comment from Sub_Octavian

    I'm sorry Chobittsu, it seems that while you were out enjoying yourself, the pot has boiled over. The crowd is sharpening their torches and lighting their pitchforks. Time out folks.
