  1. I hear you loud and clear, Shinytrashcan, and that's what I've been doing for more than three years. Of course, the ship rentals "intervened", so to speak, and allowed me to jump ahead. But the majority of my game play has been working my way up the ranks through the tech tree. It took me what felt like a long time but I was finally able to get to t8 ships (Baltimore, North Carolina e.g.), and am still working my way higher. Of course I got a few preemies (in containers) along the way to help rack up the scores and credits and XP, but I still feel the game people owe us by giving us chances, like ship rentals or subbing temporary loans of t9 and t10 ships so we can partake in our clan battles.
  2. that's pretty good. How can I find you and will you div with me and compliment my playstyle??? But, seriously, the way it was done previously is a better way. Again, they are cutting back on essentially helpful services by relying on someone's receiving compliments on their playstyle. How, then, can you "develop your playstyle" if you cannot take part in battles where you don't have a ship that is required you have in order to participate? The answer is, you put more money in their wallet(s) by buying the ships that let you participate. It's more for them, less for the player.
  3. Shortly after I joined the game three years ago this past December there was such a thing as "ship rental". For $4.99 USD you could rent a premium ship for I believe it was either 7 or 10 days, and at the end of the rental period were given the option of purchasing said ship at a discount price. I purchased several ships, among them Atago, Asashio and Massachusetts B, Dunkerque, Perth and a couple of others that way. Then, all of a sudden, it stopped. My guess was that it wasn't netting the game developers enough money, so they did away with it. Why give a player the opportunity to try out a ship for a few days and if they liked it, purchase it at a discount price? Why would the game developers allow themselves to be cheated (the payback for trying to be nice to the game players out there) out of getting the full price? I don't spend my money foolishly, but a few days ago I did, and bought one premium ship. To be honest with you, and I'm sure others feel as I do, I would rather spend a small sum to rent a ship for a week to 10 days so I can try it out. And, since these ships are like cars (you never get back what you've spent) a discount purchase price, if you want to buy it, is a very considerate and respectful thing to do. But, hell, if you're out to fleece the general public, you can't be nice, considerate and respectful towards those who willingly play your game. The other thing concerns temporary usage of ships. Up until I believe a month, month and half ago, when clan battles came around, you generally found up to four or five (maybe six) ships temporarily placed in your inventory, of t9 or t10, depending on the tier level of the clan battles then taking place. That was done to allow a player who did not own those tier level of ships to participate in their clan battles. As with other things that served to help the game player that has, of course, stopped. Of course they would never admit it, but the reason they took away the temporary free ships was they feel if a player wants to take part in their clan's battles they're going to have to fork over up to $77 USD to buy the ship needed to do that! How nice and considerate they are to make it easy for game players to fight in their clan battles! Aren't the game developers such nice, considerate and respectful people? While it may not seem like it now, players are going to get a little tired of the "money games" the developers are playing. It is becoming apparent that a good amount of them are from what I've seen on Facebook. I am sure once someone from the game developers reads this, they will consider it a closed subject.

    Clan Battles: "Greece" Season

    You gave a typical roundabout non-response as to why the game is no longer "lending" ships to players who don't possess certain tier level ships for clan battles. This is not a question of whether a ship is "banned" as someone else said. This is just another attempt to tell the Captains out there either fork over the money for a ship to use or if you don't you're screwed and can't participate. It's the same with ship rentals. A couple of years ago you used to rent ships out for 7 or 10 days (don't exactly remember) for @$4.99. At the expiration of the rental time the player was then given the choice of buying it at discount price, or not. That's how I acquired three of my premiere ships. You don't do that anymore. Instead you've thrown in other incentives which force the Captain to lay out money if they want to reap the benefits of those incentives. Pretty soon people are going to get disgusted and games like "[edited]" will overshadow World of Warships in terms of players and popularity.

    Clan Battles: "Greece" Season

    You people are really disgusting, bordering on sickening. Up until a few clan battles ago you "lent" ships (t10) to players who did not have them so they could participate in their clan battles. Then, all of a sudden, you stopped doing that. Your thirst for money must have increased so much that you longer have the respect for the game player that you used to have. I stick with the game only because I am a naval historian and it allows me to "fight" on ships I've only read about (I won't even get into the inaccurate configurations of some of the ships in your lineup). And in the last three years I've been playing I've seen you people go from somewhat friendly, even giving in some cases, to the money-grubbing institution you've become.

    Premium Shop: New Arrival!

    They just want to rake the money in, and not give anything worthwhile in return.

    Premium Shop: New Arrival!

    Hurry to obtain them? I'm expected to buy this crap just to play a game? I'd rather spend $300 on a 1/200-scale, 45" long model of the Scharnhorst than buy anything from you people (except the doubloons for membership).
  8. I gotcha, Hampton Roads, and again sorry for the misnomer. As for @Hapa_Fodder not seeing the post, I doubt that person will even acknowledge it. Those aligned with the "guilty" never do.
  9. Thx for the support Gaelic. Sometimes things need to be said. And this is definitely one of them.
  10. @Happa_Fodder: During Part 1 of the Public Test you stated that as a reward for completing the Always Courageous collection we would receive the T5 ship USS Oklahoma/a captain with 6 points/ and Oklahoma camouflage. You also stated that we would not receive it during the test. I, and so many others I'm sure, who completed the Always Courageous collection were expecting to receive this promised reward once we went back on the live servers. I was expecting an email with a link to claiming the prize we had won, so I think you have to make good on that promise. Three years ago when I started playing the game you gave us, the people who have made your game popular (and your wallets fat), many incentives with definite rewards. Now it's the exact opposite. You charge ridiculous prices, you give us challenges to complete (like the Dockyard) which the only way they can be completed is if we spend money. We get nothing if we don't spend. Yes, some of these challenges may last a specific amount of time , but if we don't spend money to help (or speed) them along, we end up running out of time with nothing to show for it except the feeling that we threw away money for no damn good reason. Upon signing on to the game this morning (10/30) I saw that if we want the ship (USS Oklahoma) so many of us won during the Public Test we either have to buy it outright or buy the containers to get the pieces needed to complete the collection. I think that is SICKENINGLY DEPLORABLE and symbolic of the money-hungry attitude that has overtaken those who run this game. Those of us who participated in the Public Test and completed the Always Courageous collection are ENTITLED TO RECEIVE THE REWARD AS WAS STATED. WE EARNED IT!! Again, it was stated those who completed the collection would not receive the reward DURING THE TEST, but NOTHING WAS SAID that we wouldn't be credited with it AFTER THE TEST'S CONCLUSION. Let's face it, if you had had no intention of living up to your promise of awarding the ship to those who completed the collection, you should NEVER HAVE SAID IT! And since I am a member of the World at War North America group on Facebook, you can bet your butt this will be posted there too. Many more people will see it.
  11. I erred on your name. I meant Happa_Fodder.
  12. There's a lot of crap they do to us, and we have no choice but to work around it. As I said, I understand you and feel the same
  13. Hear ya, and understand ur feeling. I used to feel the same. But it only takes a split sec to get back to ur favorite port!
  14. Well, how about it, Hampton Roads? Why are you ignoring responding to my earlier post pasted into the quote box?
  15. You made mention of the fact, during Part One of the Public Test, that one of the 'prizes' of completing the Always Courageous collection is the acquisition of the USS Oklahoma/captain with 6 points/Oklahoma camouflage. But the only thing that stopped us from acquiring that 'prize' was that you said it wasn't going to be awarded during the Public Test. I completed the Always Courageous collection during the 1st part of the Public Test, and shouldn't have to do it all over again to win that 'prize'. I completed the collection, and it doesn't matter whether it was during the Public Test or not. You just have to send those of us who completed it in the PT an email with a link so we can acquire it. You did promise it we would receive it, so make good on that promise. Three years ago when I started playing the game you gave us, the people who have made your game popular (and your wallets fat), many incentives with definite rewards. Now it's the exact opposite. You charge ridiculous prices, you give us challenges to complete (like the Dockyard) which the only way they can be completed is if we spend money. We get nothing if we don't spend. Yes, some of these challenges may last a specific amount of time , but if we don't spend money to help (or speed) them along, we end up running out of time with nothing to show for it except wasted money.
