    How to make NTC balanced.

    From discussing this with one of my family members who is deeply invested into this game... I gave it some thought on how to go in the right direction on this. My idea would simply be to REMOVE these combat bonuses as a whole. It's entirely unfair for players who have a limited amount of time to play during their busy week to finally grind that tier X of their choice to only then be outmatched by someone who has the same ship with added bonuses. It's insane. Completely catered to the players who can sink hours upon hours daily & weekly, only to be rewarded with a better ship that in a one on one scenario, has the added edge. My counter-offer to this nonsense, is to add a NEW currency, Nickel. or something like that. This currency is rewarded to players who complete games, complete scenarios with stars, and complete challenges with UPGRADED ships ( 6 to 10 ). This will add incentive for players who have reached that tier 10, decide if they want to go back and start earning new currency in the upgraded ships. This currency will allow players to purchase several items such as; Steel Coal Specialized Camo's Other rare currencies ie; copper etc Or perhaps, regrinding your ships you have a chance unlock a special campaign that will reward you super containers or a very rare ship ie; Belfast. I saw posted recently on a reddit thread "Completely switching the system to cosmetics or resources is not going to work. We seriously considered this option, but from all our experience with various in-game activities and their rewards, we still need to keep some performance-based rewards to keep the progression meaningful. However, we really appreciate your ideas about having much less significant bonuses and adding other types of rewards to make the buffs even more scarce." This... is in-fact what the correct response to this would be. As mentioned previously, if player 1 can grind and grind on improving their tier X ship and get it to level 2, while player 2 finally achieved the same ship for the first time, player 2 is already at a loss. I know I will probably receive comments such as "it comes down to knowledge of the ship in one-on-one fights" or "19 point commanders help too". I get all that, but this is only regarding same tier ship to tier ship.
  2. Hi All, I finally have enough coal to buy one of these 4 ships which should I get? Salem: is not really in my running as I have a Wooster and Buffalo. ( enjoy them but don"t need another USN CA tin can) Georgia: The number of guns doesn't scare me on Peach Boi because I love the T7 Gneisenau and Mass secondaries sound fun. But is it different enough from main line USN BBs? Do the big guns overpen a lot? JB: Seems most "fun" and originally set on this ship until new ships came out. Have not even really started French lines so might be good to see if French worth going down. Yoshino: even worth bringing up? Seems like a "tanky" Zao which play style is kinda dead/not fun it seems Boils down to most fun and credit earnings which to do ya'll think is king?

    Convert Steel To Get Jean Bart?

    So currently I have slightly more than 134k coal and 3950 steel which, while certainly not an insignificant amount, is a far cry from even the 11.6k needed to get Flint (and not even close to the likes of Stalingrad or Bourgogne which need around 30k). With the 25% off coupon, I am capable of getting Jean Bart should I convert all but slightly less than 300 steel. On one hand, steel is a very relatively rare resource and I'm wondering about the wisdom of converting it into something that's able to be earned for free (especially since most of this steel is from the winter event), and especially since I do not participate in clan battles and for the most part do not touch ranked. On the other hand, without converting steel, I would still need about 36k coal to obtain Jean Bart (which, assuming I get 2 containers every day and 400 coal daily, is still more than a month's worth of effort). Should I convert the steel, or wait for more than a month and get JB through regular grinding?
  4. Hello, I am UCCMaster1 I am an average level player. My WTR is 51% and my PR is pretty crap. But I have 3 tier X ships and actively play on a daily basis both on NA server and PTS when its out (I do it because it's an excuse to try out lines I normally don't play, you know, testing). If you're on Notser's discord, you probably have seen me messing around in the weebville/shitposting chat. My question is as follows: So I hear that the Yoshino is coming out soon and want to know: why should I be buying the Yoshino with all my hard earned coal? I'm a cruiser main who plays a lot of Zao (I'm starting to get good at her). So wouldn't the Yoshino be a great addition as well? I also watched Notser's video on Yoshino and got the idea that the ship was poor in survivability but great at HE spam. Basically I need to find a reason why I should not invest in the Yoshino (aka it being a waste of coal). I've been told the Salem isn't worth it and I hated the Richelieu so I didn't think I would like the Jean Bart. Are there other coal ships coming down the line I can be looking forward to?

    Got the JB

    Just recently got the Jean Bart with coal out of the Armory. Very pleasantly surprised. First ship with all forward facing guns. Just my opinion it's design has a advantage over the other forward facing BB's with the fact there is just two turrets. stacked, so can face directly ahead or slightly angled on bow and still give a "broadside" without having to show broadside. Longer range than anticipated. Just hadn't really researched main battery range. Fairly nimble, reload booster, speed booster. A well designed battlecruiser in my opinion. Smaller calibre rifles is the only reason I say that. A nice compliment of 2ndaries. Overall, I give it a thumbs up. If anybody was thinking of getting it. Speaking personally, I don't think you will regret it.
  6. Just curious how much Coal you have saved? I'm up to 377k. Waiting to see what may be on the horizon for purchase.
  7. I am sitting on a bunch of coal and wondering what I should do with it. Are any of the coal ships worth having? Toying with the idea of picking up something French, maybe the JB or .Aigle. I am interested i any thoughts or recommendations regarding the coal ships in the arsenal. thanks
  8. What's the average Coal income for players here? How much coal is earned daily and monthly by average players? Has anyone run the numbers on if Jean Bart's price of 228,000 coal is a tangible goal? If anyone has any links to a thread that's run the numbers on coal income, that would be helpful.

  11. May have missed it, was there a note about ARP ships earning coal instead of steel? All of mine so far have awarded coal, even though they are technically premium ships.
  12. Hello i am still new here and these are my thoughts about the new economy system: My instincts are telling me that something isn't right with the Steel/Coal economy. See at the start "nobody" had steel or coal but at least you could get it on containers(supercontainers) i made this calculations if you get 2 coal containers and complete the first daily mission you get a minimum of 1000 coal so if you play every day you will get a minimum of 30000 coal per month. now lets say that you want a ship lets say the Musashi priced at 180000 coal; you can add a coupon and reduce the price to 120000 coal but that's at least 4 months of grind and thats a lot of grind now lets think about coal and pricing at the most in one day if you get very lucky you can get at a maximum 4000 coal so thats good but almost impossible of getting every day for 30 days straight. Now about coal ships pricing... One could say that their prices are very much in line with the regular ships: Musashi 180000 coal - Izumo 178000 xp Salem 240000 coal - Des Moines 237500 xp Black 14000 Steel/140000 coal(converted) - Fletcher 158000 xp these prices are about right until now. from now on we should see prices like these: Jean Bart 226000 coal - Alsace 190000 xp Bourgogne 30000 steel/ 300000 coal (converted) - Republique 260000 xp Stalingrad 28000 steel/ 280000 coal (converted) - Moskva 235000 xp Because before we had artificial scarcity and now people are starting to retain some coal, and these prices will continue to go up and yes i know you cant convert coal into steel (yet(they introduced 3 new rare metal categories, but for what you might ask...... hum? )) i do think that they will allow us to convert doubloons into steel rather than coal into steel but for that they would need to get their pricing right (and destroy/reprice the current grind shenanigans for coal and remove some ships cuz they would be to cheap for us to buy). lets discuss it below
  13. Hello, this is a direct request for WG staff / community managers regarding release of new T9 Premium ships and removal of existing ones. Can we get a confirmation on whether or not the USS Alaska will be release before or after the removal of Musashi / Kronstadt? If we cannot get information above, can we AT LEAST get information on how the Alaska will be sold before the removal of Musashi / Kronstadt? I currently have enough free XP /coal to get Musashi and Kronstadt. But I want to save them to get Alaska, then I like to use the other currency to get one of Musashi/ Kronstadt. I cannot buy either Musashi or Kronstadt right now because I don't know how / when Alaska will be sold. Since it is confirmed that both of old T9 premiums will be removed soon, I like the above information so I can make judgement on what ships I can purchase with the currencies I have. Please, WG, give us more information regarding the Alaska before you remove the Musashi / Kronstadt so we can actually make purchasing decisions in a timely manner. Thank you
  14. Take it with a grain of salt, but it appears Jean Bart has been leaked as a coal ship Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/9t005b/jean_bart_appears_to_be_a_coal_ship/
  15. i don't know where to post this and im sure nothing can be done but, earlier i choose to get a resource container but it gave me a super container. Thinking, cool im going to get alot of resources but it gave me camo. There is nothing wrong with the camo its good and looks good but i was wondering if you could just take the 50 camos and my free xp and just give me 56,770 coal. List of reasons why: 1. Please Video: https://streamable.com/rq297
  16. So as a Yeuyang, enthusiast, I was working out my build for the above legendary upgrade, and I finally paid attention to what slot it went in...slot 5. Fun fact: Slot 5 in where concealment systems modification usually goes. So that means Yeunyang goes from 5.8km concealment to 6.5km. (in practical terms this would mean the Yeuyang can now be spotted from space by other sneaky style dds, and can even be shadowed by them without the other guy being detected...and all this without torps that can touch other dds. This is a self-nerf of the 1st order. Hard pass.
  17. OK, so i just got enough coal for the Salem with the coupon, should i get it or wait? i don't have Des Moines and don't really plan in grinding it anytime soon as i'm committed to to many other lines. so i've been considering just getting Salem instead and skipping the line all together. i also see that there are a lot of premiums around the corn the i would want more than Salem like Jean Bart ,the unknown T10 French BB, and Alaska and what ever else they may be cooking up. however we don't know how any of these will be sold i really want a Salem or Des Moines so this would be an easy out, Salem is said to be able to be a bit more aggressive play style over Des Monies which aligns with my play style better so given the choice i'd pick Salem anyway to avoid a debate over player skill: i also understand there is the whole "learn the line, through the Grind" thing, however i feel confident in my skills enough to say it would only take me a short time to get used to it. espesaly because balti and buffalo don't really play like Des Moines anyway. id like to mention i do have Worcester and mino so i'm used to island and radar and glass ships also i'm at Pensacola now and would probably free XP most of the remaining ships to get to des moines as i have little interest in playing New Orleans, Baltimore or buffalo(most likley free xp half way ish) so the bottom line question here is... is the Salem a good enough substitute for the Des Moines to justify the price on Coal and skipping the line?
  18. I'm at 66,100 lumps of coal... or is that metric tonnes? In any case, the number is 66.1KoC. What to do with it? My first instinct is to just forget it exists, maybe check in once a month to see what's there. When they implemented coal, I started with 45K or 49K - don't remember. But as it is now, i've earned through various channels ~ 20K coal... which seems like a lot. I'm 1/3rd of the way to the Salem, a tier X ship. At a rate much faster than I expected. You think the coal handouts will start slowing soon? The Salem is my target if I save it. But hey - I want to know what you guys are doing. How fast you collecting it? Are you spending it? Any tips to maximize the collection of it? So on and so forth! TIAFYC

    Well ain't that..

    .. A fine How do you do. first SC in like 3 months...
  20. So I ended up actually getting a little lucky and got a ton of coal.I have 135k coal (With the 25% discount the musashi costs 132k coal) I do also have 980k free xp as well. Figure why not get the Mushashi, it seems like a great boat for tier 9. But what do you guys think? Also, I have 0 steel, so no chance of saving the coupon for a steel ship. =(
  21. So here I was, all set to get myself some coal... saw the little "this is new" WG button on the container choices, dutifully chose the "more resources" option, and... WHAMO! Super container... Containing 1,000 doubloons! Now, don't get me wrong, that was awesome, but... Is this some ploy to get people to choose coal? I would have done it anyway! GG Wargaming, and thanks for the doubloons WoWS NA!!! ~Beorn

    Couple of questions

    Hey guys got a couple of questions, First, if you get a ship like the black or salem which are tier 9-10 premium ships, do you make even more credits? How much credits do those ships make compared to other tier 8 premiums? Second, why aren't there any German ships in the Arsenal for purchase? I am feeling like I should shoot for the black or salem cause I would like to earn a good credit maker ship. I prefer German ships, but as there aren't any I don't mind settling with french or american ships. Which ship out of the ones available in the Arsenal is the best credit maker? Thanks
  23. I've opened a ticket but not found other threads so I thought I'd see if it is just me. This has nothing to do with the other bug folks are reporting about clan oil > coal stuff. My issue is my balance of coal is not changing - stuck - since initial allotment when coal arrived. I am earning more - got some in a container tonight and via a daily achievement. Still, no change to my balance. Anyone else?

    Coal And Steel Economics

    I noticed now that in this clan war season, gold is no longer offered as a reward for reaching higher divisions. But to compensate, they seem to be very generous with their steel distribution, though reaching typhoon, there is only enough steel for some of the lower tiered premiums. Is this a new tiered economics where gold is still the top followed by coal/steel with credits on the bottom? Will steel/coal ever become the middle man between gold and credit?
