    Submarine Testing

    For me subs have become less enjoyable with each new iteration. The most fun I had with them was during the 2018 Halloween event "Terror of the Deep", I played as much as I could during that event. You have been trying to shoehorn them into regular gameplay by tweaking this and that but so far it hasn't worked out as far as I'm concerned. As they stand now I don't enjoy playing the subs and I don't like playing against them. The only way I see them working is in a scenario situation, hunting enemy shipping, etc. I think that could be very successful. I would play them under those circumstances but other than that I am uninterested.

    PTS 0.10.5

    Round 1 My account didn't sync with the PTS like it has in the past so I decided not to play. I tried several times over the past four days but it never synced. I'll check back during the next PT, if it syncs I'll play, if it doesn't I wont. Round 2 My account updated with my first login to round two! My main interest was in trying "Grand Battle", after giving it a try I found it to be rather boring and have no interest in playing it when it goes live. I do like that you included the flag and patch as an incentive and many times that is enough to get me to participate but not this time. I'm sure that many players will enjoy it but it's just not for me. As far as the disabling of allied damage is concerned, on one hand it will be nice to not take damage from wayward torpedoes, on the other hand it might encourage players who already think it's okay to toss torps in any direction to continue doing so. That's all I have Capt_Scuttlebutt Over & Out

    PTS 0.10.2

    First I must give props to the art department for the visual improvements. I wasn't looking for them but I caught on fire and noticed the way it looked, much more realistic. Other details such as the flash of the AA guns and the sparks from the repair crew are just great! I enjoyed the "Big Hunt" battle mode much more than the "Key Battle" mode, to be honest I didn't like "Key Battle" when it was on the PTS and didn't bother playing it when it went live but I'm looking forward the playing "Big Hunt" when it goes live! Overall I very pleased with 0.10.2

    PTS 0.10.0

    USS Flint (CL-97) The jewel of my fleet, my first (and only) steel ship. My “Go-To” ship, the ship that struck fear into the cold metal hearts of bots from “New Dawn” to “Two Brothers”, reduced to a burning wreck with update 0.10.0. I purchase her for steel, she gets demoted to a coal ship, and now she suffers the indignity of being beaten with a nerf bat while her sisters (Atlanta & Atlanta B) get a buff? Where is the justice I ask you, WHERE! You have wronged me and I demand justice, make me an offer I can't refuse (in the form of steel compensation) and I'll make sure that you don't have to sleep with the fishes! I also have Pommern with a secondary build, lucky me. Please rethink this! I know it was you, WG. You broke my heart. You broke my heart!! - Capt_Scuttlebutt Round 2 Update I have read that secondaries may not be nerfed like we had been lead to believe, if this is true then my battleships with secondary builds are happy. I don't really see a need for the commander skills update, what's wrong with the way it was? If you want to add a couple of more points to the system that's fine by me but change for the sake of change isn't necessarily a good thing, sometimes it's best to leave well enough alone! I still have grievances concerning my beloved Flint. Why has the base firing range been nerfed to 11.1 km while the base range of the Atlanta and Atlanta B is 13.3? I'm still not happy about a ship that I spent steel on becoming a coal ship. Steel is hard to come by, coal is pretty easy to acquire. I will gladly exchange the steel I spent on the Flint for the amount of coal she is now going for.

    PTS Updates 0.9.11 and 0.9.12

    The Dockyard event is straightforward like the Anchorage event was, this one is more drawn out but you're looking at a tier 9 at the end of the grind. Players will have to decide whether the Hizen will be worth that grind. I enjoy a good grind challenge, the ship I receive is almost secondary. In regard to the US BB tech tree split I must say that I am disappointed, so much wasted potential. I have the entire US BB line but I had no desire to play the Colorado again in order to get the Kansas but then I received the Kansas during the BB event and thought that maybe I would just play the Kansas and work towards the Minnesota, a few battles in the Kansas changed my mind and now the Kansas just sits in port. Speaking of disappointments lets now talk about the snowflake event. Here's the payout schedule for 2018: In contrast this year you now get: 400 coal for tier 5 500 coal for tier 6 750 coal for tier 7 75 steel for tier 8 75 steen for tier 9 "Santa's Gift" container for tier 10 Maybe these values will change when they go live? As they are now the "rewards" seem a little frugal The Santa's Gift for tier 10 feels more like a boobie prize that a reward, I'd rather have more steel than some camos and flags. Lastly there are very few players on the PTS and when you do find a human a large percentage of them are of a questionable skill level. I'm not claiming to be a great player but in comparison to many of the humans I ran into I'm downright Unicum! Some of these players seemed like they were using the PTS as a training room while playing their first battles! UPDATE 11-24-20 I don't much care for the daily prizes being put in the Armory, I like them to pop-up at login like they usually do.

    Public Test 0.9.10

    Sometimes an event clicks with you and sometimes it doesn't and this years Halloween just isn't doing anything for me so I'm probably going to skip. I'm sure that others will enjoy it but it's just not for me. Past Halloween events that I did enjoy include "Terror of the Deep", "Saving Transylvania", and "Sunray in the Darkness". I want to stress that I don't think that there is anything wrong with this new event, I just didn't enjoy playing it. I found very few playing this second round and wait times were sometimes long! Not many players. Long wait times.

    Secret Mission

    I received a "Secret Mission" at https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/general-news/a-secret-mission-in-wows/ You have two missions to choose from, I picked the Greater Challenge but I received the Easy as Possible mission! Two Missions to choose from Greater Challenge chosen. Received Easy as Possible mission. Easy as Possible mission complete. @Hapa_Fodder This is the reply from support, Ticket ID 126946112. I did not choose the easy mission. Can you help with this? Others are experiencing this same problem! UPDATE: I went back to the page where you select the mission and it looked like both missions were available, I chose the Greater Challenge again and this time I received it!

    Public Test 0.9.10

    My main focus of this test was Key Battle mode. I played enough that I was able to get all the ships and the upgraded modules but even so I wouldn't exactly call it fun. I don't see myself playing this mode on the live server unless there was some kind of incentive such as a special flag, patch, or permanent camo. I hope the problems introduced in update 0.9.9 will be corrected in today's server restart. I get stuttering in-port about every 10 seconds. I ran WGCHECK, it showed me the modstation files as possible problems. I removed the files and disabled modstation, it didn't help. I even tried different ports, same problem. UPDATE: Server reset didn't clear the stuttering problem, I hope it's taken care of by 0.9.10, it's pretty annoying.

    October call to action, a question to you.

    Travel and Photography are my main activities. Hapa, I misread part of yours as "spending time with the puppet" LOL
