    Observations on tier 8 MM

    I've had four games in Prinz Eugen since the patch. Three were tier 8 and one was tier 10. And the T10 game had a really even mix of 8s, 9s, and 10s. Usually they're loaded up with 10s and then 1-2 8s per team.
  2. So after all this drama, all WG really did was create a new currency with an obscenely high conversion rate from FXP?
  3. I got a bunch. One each for Leander, Huanghe, Konigsberg, and Yorck. I got an IJN commander in case I buy Aoba. Ships that I only play occasionally, but I'm grateful for CE when I feel like sailing them. I'd rather pay credits now rather than gold or elite captain XP later.

    Please stop rewarding cowards

    This. These "problems" only arise when people expect tactical brilliance from random people in a free-to-play online action game with a minimum qualification of "must have internet access."

    T8 MM need improvement

    What's odd to me is not just the number of T10 games that T8 ships get, but the number of times that there are only 1-2 T8s in the game on either team. Would it kill WG to wait a few more seconds for two more T9 or 10 to queue up? Do the 11 other players get that much joy out of facing a single T8? I don't have a lot of T8 games under my belt, but I've seen 8s suicide more that once when they're alone on the red team.

    Multiple frustrations

    There are players here with > 10k games - they actually can help you if they have some insight into your stats. If you don't want to show stats - fair enough. But that means that as far as we know, you're trying to torp with Soviet DDs or shoot things with IJN torpedo boats, or you went straight to tier 8 in a premium and you're getting creamed. The only thing left for us to say is "keep playing, try different lines, etc.", which is vague and dispiriting advice.

    The real problem

    Oddly, he actually claims to be hiding his stats:

    Sit down, everyone, and listen. New guy knows what the real problem is, and he will instruct us.

    Time for Carrier Heals

    As a cruiser main, I say sure, go for it. More hp to farm at the end of the game.

    Consider these guys reported!!

    Consider these guys reported!!

    This is another reason I don't play co-op. You already "lose" xp and credits, compared to a random game...and then the reds kill each other with startling frequency, taking more xp and credits off the table.

    That's a shame - a discounted Scharn would have been tempting. As a personal silver lining, tho, I managed to get all the way through the sale without buying anything.

    Prinz Eugen - Deal or No Deal

    None of the package deals have interested me. The PE is a comfortable ship, I got it recently with a 30% coupon. But I've done awful in it, which is at least partially due to constant tier 10 games. (The other part: my limited experience playing tier 8 ships.) I'm waiting for the MM changes before bringing it out again.

    This is why I chuckle whenever someone suggests that WG is instituting some complicated, hidden illuminati-esque scheme to achieve some nefarious goal. They can't even do the QC required to see that 13 > 10. They spent countless hours on the NTC without the slightest clue that it would bomb. People will say "well, this is marketing, not management..." or "this is management, not the developers..." but careful and competent coordination between these parts of the company is exactly the skill that would be needed to achieve any of the Machiavellian maneuvers that people think WG up to when their winrate goes down 1.5%.
