    Anniversary Stream! It's today!

    I tried during the stream and got "Technical Difficulties". Tried just now and got "Code not Valid". Sigh.

    What's your birthday wish? - 16th - 22nd

    I had been playing WoWs for over a year and with every step up the tier ladder I felt that I was nothing more than a sack of potatoes for my team to carry. I didn't feel i was making any progress and was discouraged by all these players say how they received this-or-that achievement. The I decided to go play my old Furutaka in a mid-tier match. Everything I did seemed to be the right choice and I ended up with a Kraken and carried the team and getting two compliments. It made me realize that I was making progress and to keep plugging away. My Christmas wish is for WG to build a simple scenario: December 13th will be the 80th anniversary of the Battle of the River Plate. I would like to see the developers make a small Operations scenario on the Ocean map with a Graf Spee and a 19 point captain versus an Exeter and 2 Leanders, each with a 6 point captain. The Graf Spee's objective would be to reach an objective point in the Northwest corner of the map or destroy all British ships before time expires. Any other result is a British Victory of varying degrees. The ships would all have fixed captain skills, upgrades, and consumables. Players would simply sign up and be dropped into one of the four ships (or maybe allow players to choose between an axis or allies pool). No divisions. It would give all sorts of players a chance to try these ships out and have some fun. If that is not a valid wish, then I'd just like an Admiral's Vault (or The Motherload, if the AV is too expensive) as I'm always short on cash and doubloons.
  4. Looking good, WG seems to have listened to the playerbase and come up with a challenging, but not debilitating, grind. I'm just going to play through my T II-IV ships tonight then start on the directives in earnest tomorrow.

    Premium Ship Review #131 - Lenin

    I'm still not sure why I'd want to take the Lenin over the Nelson. The latter has the same gun layout and better matchmaking.

    WINNERS - Battle of Heligoland Bight

    ... Now that I've read over the battle, the ships involved should be restricted to Tier II-IV, not Tier V-X. Even if the higher ranked players don't own ships in those tiers, it wouldn't be too expensive to purchase them.

    WINNERS - Battle of Heligoland Bight

    I have to admit, I'm glad that they excluded co-op for this. The previous events were just too easy to abuse with bot accounts. Giving rewards to top players is also a good incentive to play well.
  9. I sure wish I could be there, but I'm busy packing up my son for Uni. Maybe next year, or they'll hold it at HMCS Sackville in Halifax. :)
  10. If I win, I'd appreciate a T-61, please! First spin in a Bourrasque, so not bad for a 3 point captain.
  11. I don't do CVs, but I did get 2 of 4 twitch missions. 26 crates opened, 0 missions received. I have a couple of theories as to why this didn't pan out: Two years ago, I spent over $150 on WG stuff, but I've bought less than $50 worth of stuff since My overall WR is 48.5%, though I've been above 50% for the last couple of months. Perhaps there are thresholds where the mission drop odds increase or decrease? I've been playing the game for 2.5 years and over 5K battles. Maybe WG has different odds for long time players? I opened most of my crates between 9-11pm in the EDT timezone (-5 GMT), so perhaps there is a limited amount of missions dropped over a set 24hr period with more chances earlier in the day than later? For people who got crates, How much do you spend annually, what's your win rating, how long have you been playing, how many total battles, and what time of day (+/- GMT timezone) did you open them? Maybe we can determine a pattern from all this that we can apply to the next event.

    0 for 35 on French Containers, what if....

    Well, I've gotten as many Containers as I can in this event. (don't play CVs) Out of 26 containers opened, zero French DD missions. But I have the Siroco so I'll just start grinding once 0.8.7 drops. It's the first time I haven't received even one mission during a new line event, so I'm thinking that Wargaming really lowered the odds of getting containers this time around. We'll have to see if this trend continues with the Italian CAs or maybe the event odds were just an aberration this time around.

    Rogue Wave: Summing up the Event!

    My team did it before as well, but I think they meant all nine ships were sunk by one *player*.

    Rogue Wave: Summing up the Event!

    Iirc, the first ship in the list was the Messer (Z-52), so that explains why it was the most played ship - it's probably the first ship highlighted (probably due to the complaints that it's underperforming in-game and they wanted us to test it out) and therefore played. It's interesting that Sea Devil (Shimakaze) was the most played Level 2 and Stealthedo (Daring) was the most played Level 3 - they were all a continuation of the Messer line. However, it could also indicate that line was the most easiest/enjoyable to play. The Barracuda line was the least enjoyed, probably due to the low range torps.
  15. I have to admit, this is the first event where I have receive zero missions despite opening 20+ crates. I'm not particularly salty about it, though, since I should get the Siroco by the end of the week and a nice T7 camo. I'll just grind the line the old-fashioned way.
