    Save a star... still

    And I guess it back fired didn’t it? Because what you call “good players” are now instantly in save a star mode.. just like everyone else. You call it complaining I call it what it is.. stupid.. because when you have 3,4,5 and I’ve seen as many as 6 ships run for the border and start firing he. Seems to be a little outta hand at this point. Sorry you don’t want to have save a star taken away because you’d have to participate more than clicking a the left button on your mouse? It’s not even a game anymore.. it’s all about what team had less ships run for the border.. fun game. I’m sure “good players” such as yourself would be devastated to have participate... bahahahahaha good players.. bahahahahaha

    I’ve been playing the game for 3 years, have participated since season 7.. when was this season of non existent save a star?

    Save a star... still

    While I appreciate everyone’s response and the fact that people didn’t come in with the normal “you just suck” “learn how to play blah blah blah garbage” the biggest issue the seemed to be not brought up, is people going into a game with save a star in mind. while yes, it does serve some purpose I don’t think that purpose is outweighing the negative effects of it. Sure it keeps people from throwing away their ships or from someone getting screwed just because they got stuck with a bad team or whatever.. may the end of the day though, when almost every game you have ships making a b line for the edges of the maps and load HE, 99 percent of the time, they’re the ones who save their star. How is this even remotely right for the people who are actually attempting to win? As I pointed out where I had 3 games in a row where 4 ships ran for the border and each game had at least two ships full HP and it wasn’t because of heals.. it was because they took zero damage the entire game while back line camping firing HE.. they saved their stars.. not the people who capped and killed but the ones that did nothing. That’s where the save a star fails because as numerous of you pointed out it just encourages selfish play to the point where it’s making ranked unplayable. I honestly think that removing save a star will make ranked what it’s meant to be, more competitive. Sure there is competition now.. but now for a win, it’s for a star. I think having it in place is hurting ranked more than helping any one player. the whole idea of it would just be teams slugging it out for five hundred games doesn’t seem right at all.. players would still progress, just at a slower pace. It’s not like it’s constantly win one, loss one and back and forth. Sometimes you win for 4 or 5 games and then maybe lose one or two.. or sometimes you lost 4 or 5 and then win 1 or 2 but smart players on a losing streak don’t play at that time and wait for players to cycle out. So progression will still occur, rank outs will still occur. If players are ranking out every season in 4 or 5 days then WG should take a look at their stats and see how many stars they saved during that time.. more than likely it’ll end up only being a few which kinda negates the argument that save a star allows people to still progress.

    When are you ever going to do take away save a star in ranked?? Why is this still a thing? 3 games in a row where 4 or more ships from the start go into save a star mode.. just lost 3 game’s in a row where at least 2 ships had taken ZERO damage.. zero.. in a full length game.. but hey they contributed the least so why shouldn’t they be rewarded the most right? I mean that’s the only logical thing to do.. reward those who do the least in typical care for the snowflakes fashion.. this is why you’ll always get people saying “why even bother with ranked” why bother.. a lot of people try their best to play the objectives, die in the process while the save a star ships camp the back line do zero to help and they don’t lose anything for it.. everyone goes into save a star mode and you still lose but because I’m in a cruiser and can’t put out as much damage as the full HP BB he gets to save his star.. ranked is broken.. beyond broken and has been for years.. the argument of “why should someone who did so much suffer for a poor team” is so invalid it’s hilarious. Because the person who does the most, caps, spots, kills people.. just wasn’t enough to beat out the guy who didn’t spot, didn’t get any kills and didn’t support but ya know.. he got a few lucky hits in so he had a few thousand more dmg so he’s the one that doesn’t have to suffer, the useless one, he’s the one who gets rewarded. If I remember correctly, after seeing the numbers for ranked last year and something like 95 percent of the players stopped playing at rank ten and I’m sure of that 95 percent, 94 percent out of the 95 just stopped because they got tired of just dealing with your ridiculous philosophy of save a star. WG constantly preaches “teamwork wins games” “you have to work as a team to win” except ranked.. ranked that goes out the window and becomes “ teamwork doesn’t get rewarded those useless ships in the back do” there is no reason it shouldn’t be like a random battle.. the team loses as a team.. not 6 people lose but one person gets a free draw. I mean if that’s what we want to go with then let’s go ahead and change randoms too. Let’s make that the top base xp earner gets rewarded as if it were a win.. I don’t know how many games I’ve played in random where I just get absolutely useless teams, I hit 1500 plus base Xp on a loss and get nothing for my effort.. and ships on the winning team have ships that earned less base xp than me on a win but they get rewarded more. I think it’s time wg takes a long, hard look at ranked and their rewarding system for wins/ losses as a whole, not just ranked but ranked should be first on that list starting with no more save a star. Think of how quickly teamwork would become an actual factor in ranked again if everyone knows that if they lose, they lose a star regardless of how much they sat in the back and dmg farmed.. basically, look at the way xp is given because right now is seems to be that 99.99 percent of all xp earned is earned off of damage done while capping, spotting, killing ships, shooting down planes and anything else rounds out the last 0.01 percent of the earnable xp

    A CV proposal (Rocket Planes as a Consumable)

    but consumables are limited. What happens after the cv uses all the rocket plane consumables? Now he only has torp planes and dive bombers which means his planes are now reloading slower because he only has two types. I don’t think I would call that a “soft” nerf by any means. I’d call it a pretty hard nerf. imagine a situation like that in a game with 4 dd. He wouldn’t even be able to kill 1 dd in the lower tiers. Or even worse the odd ball game where you get 5 dd.. he drops 3,4 or 5 rocket planes on a dd MAYBE kills one and then he’s all out of rocket planes because he’s out of consumables. even if you make them an unlimited consumable the travel time it takes to get across the map means that it’ll be ready by the time he gets back to the dd he’s hunting which just negates the whole point of having them as a consumable in the first place. this idea would never work and I hate being hunted in a dd by a cv.. it’s all about staying with other ships and not rushing into the cap right at the start and properly managing smokes... that’s how you counter it. If you run off by yourself you’re just asking to be singled out.

    Yeah it’s still not working. You can open it up in game but when you go to click on your payment method it just sits there and won’t load the redirected site. still not working on my phone either..
  9. Shenanigans_Abound


    I’ll have to see if it’s up for me now as well. It’ll open in the game but it won’t let you actually purchase anything.

    Does anyone know what’s going on with the premium shop? I’ve been trying to get into it for about 2 1/2 hours and the page is not letting me in. It pop up a message of “please wait a minute, try again later” so they’re clearly working on it.. so I guess when will it be back up? I just want doubloons so I can free xp these last two ships and finally get my long awaited, Ohio. 😁

    Bag a Premium Ship – Twitch Drops in 0.9.1

    I’ve only ever gotten one twitch drop since these drops started. Since then, nothing. I understand it’s a by chance thing but I have my account linked I average like probably 8-10 plus hours of watching streams a week where drops are enabled. (I watch when I clean up or am doing work around the house) and I’ve gotten nothing in a very long time. Total combined time probably over A a couple hundred hours since my last twitch container. Am I doing something wrong or does twitch just hate me?

    Clan treasury

    Wish they would but I think what they’re worried about is people being blackmailed, harassed etc.. into putting their steel and coal into there.. or I’m sure another one would be “give us all your steel and coal or we are kicking you out the clan” would be a popular one.

    How do you add doubloons, steel and coal into the armory? My brother needs coal for Smolensk and I was going to give it to him, just unsure how to add it to it.

    The hype is real! It's underway!

    Did I ever mention “I don’t care” did I ever use those words? No? You’re assuming I did? What a shock..

    The hype is real! It's underway!

    I can clearly see it’s in Misc. but again, what exactly does this have to do with the game again? Like I said, you say you don’t have a Facebook so why come to the World of warships game forum to treat it as such? Lol. Dude.. just get a Facebook man.. maybe if you said exactly what it is you ordered instead of trying to get a response from people by NOT saying what it is, I wouldn’t be here to tell you no one cares. Instead maybe I’d be saying something like “no way, that’s awesome” or “no way, that’s really cool, where’d you get it so I can get one” but instead you’re posting more like sites on Facebook that say things like “click here to see what happens to the girl who went on a date” or since you don’t have a Facebook you’re like a news station posting an advert for the nightly news “this product could poison you and you use it every day and don’t even know it, tune in at 10 to find out what it is” lol
