    Have you served in the armed forces? When where?

    USAF (mostly Reserve) 1986 - 2012, retired as MSgt (E-7). Started working on A-10 electronics before re-training to Air Transportation. Based out of NAS New Orleans, LA; Little Rock AFB, AR; and Wright-Patterson AFB, OH. Notable training tours to Panama, Germany, and Japan. Deployed to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Iraq (source of profile photo), among other locations. Worked with pretty anything the USAF used to move cargo, in the air and on the ground. My view of much of the USAF equipment as well.
  2. Happy Canada Day to all of my Canadian/Canadien(ne) friends.

    Update 0.9.5: Dockyard

    Slight correction: The controversy is that folks who paid for Tech Tree Tier X permacamo will have one less after the upgrade. I, for one, don't care what others get. I care for what I don't have. All non-tech tree ships get permacamo. I will have to buy another Tier X camo if I want to play the Tech Tree ship under the same conditions I used to be able to. Due to this, WG has seen the last real money from me as I cannot trust future value for a persistent asset. I'm also seriously reviewing the value of continuing to play. This release makes it clear that they do not value their long-term players.
  4. Exposing the expiration dates on the Challenges would have been nice. I saw a set of 7 without expiration and assumed that was all there was and that I didn't have a limited time. (I now know better.) I got lucky, so I reached Tallinn which will save me a double grind at that point in the line. There is plenty of hate for Mikoyan, and some of it is merited. It is not an easy ship to use, and it it fragile. However, while an average player at best, I was able to be effective with it. I agree that the ships and the camouflage should not have been interdependent. The ships should have been in the sequence with the camouflage available for those that wanted it. I also agree that Mikoyan should have been another reward for Directive 4. Final note, I was balancing this effort with the Campaign and my remaining UU missions. For me also, this impacted ship choice and mode. I am now on the Last Mission of the Campaign (just started, no stars yet). My UU missions are now all Stage 4 and 5, and I expect all will be Stage 5 by the end of the weekend.

    RU Cruiser Line Split Part 1 / Stage 4 Progress Thread (PVE Thread)

    Finished the Directive last night. Got enough Tokens for Tallinn. I will get the last two Crates tonight. That should be good for another 10 Tokens. It will be good for Credits when they convert.

    For those that still have the Moskva

    My plan other than the Free XP part.

    Finishing Unique Upgrades

    I have 9 to go. Most are on Stage 5 with the remaining on Stage 4. There other rewards from the missions, and not having to use the NTC Research Bureau, make it preferable to me to finish them. With all the negative changes, I'm likely to finish them off, and the current Directive and Campaign, and then take a (permanent?) break.

    ST, soviet cruisers branch split

    I'm sure they have the numbers. My guess is that they figured there are enough players coming in that they don't need the players leaving.

    Soviet Cruisers Directives: A Tactical Guide.

    Totally agree. One of the reasons that Task is still there.

    Soviet Cruisers Directives: A Tactical Guide.

    Finished the last Crate Task of Directive 3 last night. I'm as ready as I can be for Directive 4. I'm 3 Stars from unlocking the Final Task of Mission 4 of the Swirski Campaign. I'm still completing UU missions, so most of the ships I'm playing make some progress on at least one of the Tasks from that Campaign. Other than the Token Missions, I have only the potential damage Task left for Mikoyan.

    Weekend Spree, May 22-24, 2020.

    Key accomplishment this weekend was completing the Bismarck series without actually trying to . I also finished Directive 3, but RNG was not with me on the Crates. It is unlikely I will get anything else out of this event. I am within striking distance of finishing Mission 4 of the current Campaign. I might be into the Final Task by next weekend. I made it back to Svietlana, having reset the Russian Cruiser line. I will not advance any further until the Split is complete.

    RU Cruiser Line Split Part 1 / Stage 3 Progress Thread (PVE Thread)

    Directive 3 complete. Just 3 more Crates available. Should get those today or tomorrow. 8 of the 11 Crates were only 5 Tokens. Quite demotivating.

    Does anyone else feel ripped off lately?

    This is my position. I have Y Tier X Tech Tree permacamos. After the dust settles, I should still have Y Tier X Tech Tree permacamos. The other changes are annoying, but I was going to play the ships anyway, so no big deal. Losing the Tier X Tech Tree asset is the reason I have stopped spending any more money on this game. (This was already significantly reduced after the PR fiasco.) I have a couple things I want t complete (UUs and the current campaign). When those are done, I plan to take a significant break.

    RU Cruiser Line Split Part 1 / Stage 2 Progress Thread (PVE Thread)

    Completed Directive 2. I've had good luck with Mikoyan so far. Citadels are maximum range with the spotter are not unheard of. It is not an easy ship to drive, but can be quite effective given the right situation. 13 of the 25 crates have been for 5 Tokens. The bundle on tap will only provide 15 Tokens, so I will not be buying that unless that is all I need. I will not even consider buying in the hope of a good payout. I will assume all are going to be the worst possible. I really wish the Challenges had their expiration date displayed. I left 3 unclaimed from the first round as I assumed they were at least for the duration of the Patch based on the absence of a displayed expiration.

    Cruiser Tallinn for Token, a pipe dream?

    Another data point, of the first 11 Soviet Crates, 6 have been for 5 Tokens, 2 for 10, 1 for 15, and 2 for 25. The first doubloon bundle is for 5 Tokens. The only way I spend will be if I am really close to the next, and it is unlikely even then. Luckily, I handle all of these things by expecting to get nothing and being happy with what turns up. I'm still shafted on the Moskva permanent camouflage.
