  3. Hello everyone, Looks like I have a decision to make soon. I'm currently less than 5000 coals away from being able to obtain the IJN Musashi. For a non clan and most solo pub player, it took me awhile to get to where I am (in regard to the coal situation). I've heard that the Musashi will become unavailable soon, and I'm on the fence about whether to go for it while I still can. The class of ship that I play the most are BBs, so getting one of the largest BBs ever commissioned seem like a worthwhile goal with the excellent performance of the 460mm guns being a major bonus. Meanwhile the prospect of the ship becoming unavailable kind of make me suspect that the ship might become a sort of a rare limited edition item like the USS Missouri or the type 59 in WOT. But on the other hand, the Musashi doesn't quite fit my playstyle as a BB player as as it seems to have mostly been played as a long range bow tanking camper sniper in game, while I tend to prefer mid ranged flanking brawling type of BBs. I suspect the ship's raised citadel and hexagonal armor layout very much renders it vulnerable to close ranged alpha strikes, thus it incentivizes people to play it more passively... To top it off, I suspect the ship's relatively clumsy handling (slow turret rotation speed, slow to turn...) further specializes it into that role. The ship's questionable AA might also be a major problem moving forward as the new CV meta might be disastrous to a large tier 9 with a tier 5's AA. Obviously there's always gonna be trade offs to every ship. But at the end of the day I suppose whether or not I should go for it lies with the possible availability of alternatives (tier 9 premium BBs that can be brought with coal) moving forward. The Kronshtadt isn't quite my cup of tea due to its thin overmatchable plating, large citadel, and poor AA. So it isn't really an option even if it becomes available for coal. At the same time the Jean Bart comes across as too much of a trick ship that relies on excellent soft stats and specialization to thrive: also not my thing... Plus the Jean Bart has a significantly higher purchase price. So given the circumstances, is the Musashi worth the coal? Would it become a classic keeper or a vulnerable target moving forward? What are realistically my alternatives when it comes to tier 9 BBs you can buy with coal? Feel free to chime in. Thanks!
  4. Howdy folks! I just got finished playing my Seattle (close game, our gearing really pulled through for us!) and i noticed I didn't get any steel or coal for the snowflake event. I hadn't played it since the event started because I've been playing form lowest tiers to highest to not forget any ships. I went back to double check and see if any others were missing and both my Tirpitz and Z-23 didn't give me anything either. Both of which I played this morning (around 11:30ish?) and knocked off thier snowflakes anyone got any ideas on what happened? I thought tier 8 premiums gave rewards too? hope to hear some feed back. and please comment if you also are missing rewards from the event! until next time, I'll C'ya on the Seas PS: Merry x-mas!

    Should I get Salem?

    So as of today I have enough to get the Salem in the arsenal. I have a little under 130k coal and I'm still collecting steel(should have a little over 10.5k when I'm done). I'm looking for personal opinions if I should get her or not, or keep saving the steel for something later down the line. I just got Des Moines and I love her too to add that in.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Maybe I am the only one, but here lately I have become very irritated with the in-game daily containers. I select containers with the purpose of getting what the items that the container claims to contain, not a whole bunch of random crap that I didn't choose. Let me start by saying that I am very appreciative to WG for allowing us to obtain Premium items for free on a daily basis, it keeps me playing with no worry of having to spend doubloons on Damage Controls. However, could we please REWORK the containers to ONLY give out items from the selected category? I opened 115 containers tonight because i stockpile them for the fun of it and open them at the end of each month. Tonight was supposed to be a fun night of seeing how much stuff i had gotten from the containers that i had chosen. Sadly i did not get even close to what i had EXPECTED from the containers i chose. Coal is a new resource, so as avid players we want to stockpile this new resource, so we select the coal containers expecting them to be loaded with coal to spend in the arsenal. This is definitely NOT the case. 95% of my coal containers were loaded with items other than coal. I got free exp, flags, a port slot and other junk in my COAL containers. Coal Container Rewards are as follows: Coal/Flags/Flags: 10% Coal/FreeXP/Flags: 10% Coal/FreeXP/FreeXP: 75% Coal/Coal/Coal:5% Roughly the same numbers for the Consumables Containers I opened tonight as well. WHY? Why is there so much unrelated crap on containers. If I wanted free exp I would grind it. If I wanted credits I would go for the credits containers. If I wanted flags, I would go for the flags containers. If I want consumables, I will go for consumables containers. does anyone else feel kinda cheated when they select what they WANT from a branded container, only to get something that IS NOT supposed to be in there?
  11. 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/

    French BB Bourgogne?

    Dev blog link: Okay...what da seven buggering slotting hells??!!? Coal? Steel? XP? Replacement for the Republic? *Runs around in panic*
  13. So I have enough coal to get the Salem now... But, I already have the Des Moines, and don't know if it's really worth all that coal to get a DM clone. Does anybody know if WG plans to release other ships for coal in the neat future? Just wondering if I should hold on to the coal for now or not...
  14. 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.

  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. I'm just curious if the coal rewards at the end of the weeks during September for completing all daily missions was supposed to be a lump sum bonus reward or if the amounts they are showing are just the sum of the daily rewards you earned if you did them all. I thought if you did all the missions for that week you got a bonus reward at the end but I know for a fact that I didn't get 3,600 coal for completing the missions that ended September 30, so I'm assuming it's either bugged or I wasted a lot of time thinking I was going to get extra coal at the end. Edited to consider the possibility that there was never intended to be a bonus reward at the end.
  18. Dear all, I am facing which ship to get next using my coal/free XP. I have around 300K free XP and am wondering what to use it on. I've heard the Nelson is worth picking up, but also that the Mushashi is what to aim for because it's so powerful. I've also heard good things about the Kronstadt, but that it requires more finesse to use. (You can look up my stats, they're public. I play basically everything, though of course aircraft carriers are the hardest for me to use, and I've only played up to the T6 IJN one.) I also have enough coal (about 50K) and a discount coupon to use for buying either the Octyabyrskaya Revolutsiya, Aigle, or Mushashi. I like BBs and hear the October is good, and that conversely the Aigle is hard to use (especially in the current meta.) I'm very interested in the eventual release of French DDs but I know that's not going to happen until 2019. I'm interested in hearing what everybody here thinks about what I should buy first, and why. One final note: earning coal has seemed easy so far, but with the disappearance of the daily chain missions, I'm expecting it to become harder to earn, which is definitely going to factor into my decision. What are people's impressions of how easy earning coal will be in the future? Additionally, I plan on picking up one of the Dasha commanders and know she only speaks Russian (which I'm fine with.) However, I might be interested in picking up one of the Space Warships commanders, but I'm interested in what they sound like. Has anybody here already bought one, and if so, what voices do they use for the Space commanders? Sorry for rambling all over the place, thanks for the replies in advance!
  19. 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
  20. I'm under 13K away from the Salem. So the coal slowly trickles in now, seems all the miners when home for their holidays, the cargo ships are in for maintenance and well, flying coal to ports is just not cost beneficial. So where/how/when can I increase the intake of coal to my greedy little paws? I choose the extra resources in the cargo area. So that helps. Are they doing anything special with goal for the weekend perhaps? Or next week? Have they made it possible to buy it yet, through crates or some such thing? Thanks for your advice. I salute you with my coal black hands.

    Too Many Resources?

    Does anyone else think Wargaming is implementing too many currencies, or resources as they call them? It muddies up the economy, robs it of clarity and simplicity. I thought adding coal and steel was pushing it, but now we see copper and molybdenum coming - yikes. And Oil seems extraneous now. Dev blog explains it below: https://www.facebook.com/wowsdevblog/

    Well ain't that..

    .. A fine How do you do. first SC in like 3 months...
  23. 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. =(
  24. 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
