  1. DISCLAIMER: THIS IS PURELY CONJECTURE AND THEORY, TRY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. Since the CV rework is fast approaching I wanted to check if there can be any obscure way to profit from it, thanks to the compensations you may get on your CVs. So while looking at the rules on this link something caught my eye: https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/public-test/carrier-underwood/ This makes sense since odd tiers will be removed; what makes this very interesting is the current 50% discount we get on permanent camos of Tier V-IX. This leaves 2 odd tiers, VII and IX with permanent camos. The tier VII ones cost 1k doubloons, the tier IX ones 2k doubloons. What does this mean? If the rules do not change in the meantime, you can spend up to 6000 doubloons on the permanent camouflages at a 50% discount, to get back after the rework 12.000 doubloons back. And because the XP spent on the ships can be refunded you don't even need to play them, just Free XP to them, buy the perma camos and then get your double doubloons and Free XP back. Personally I am considering trying it out on the Hiryu. I would like to point out again that this is purely theoretical and that you won't know for sure until the rework happens and all the rules are finalized. As with any investment, there is risk involved.
  2. I purchased BLACK MASSACHUSETTS B last week, could anyone tell me where I can find the combat missions to get Doubloons as part of the package I bought. help will welcomed. Many thanks.

    Getting Back Unspent Doubloons

    How do I get back some doubloons that were accidentally spent ? There were only $250. spent for a 24hr time to have a Premium Account. When I pressed the Purchase button, I thought I would get another step before it took the cash. It didn't have one. I've not done anything with it so I haven't spent it on anything. Is it possible I could get them back ??
  4. Anyone able to help? Much appreciated. I am having a difficult time finding info as to purchase doubloons for a friend. Thanks!!
  5. Ok, some of you who got RN destroyer drops should be getting 200-220 Sovereigns by now. I did, and I have 220. I could get the Warspite, which I do not have, or get the Gallant, which I do, and ostensibly receive 4500 doubloons. Have any among you bought Warspite or Gallant with Sovereigns, having it already, and gotten the advertised doubloons?
  6. I want to make a suggestion, and I know this is a strange request. I would find it interesting that there would be a scenario. where players have to fend off raiders controlled by ether AI or players while defending a convoy. This event would be a special event and would be only available for a short time so that way it would not be a regular thing and would not detract from the sale of gold doubloons. Players defending receive nothing for sinking the ships they are defending. for ever ship that makes it to port or destination they could receive gold doubloons, coal, steal, or even extra credits. or even the possibility of a super container. if the attackers are controlled by players they will get the same rewards by sinking the convoy ships. (player warships don't give any prizes). I know the Halloween mode is coming up. It might be too late for this year but perhaps next year. this event would not be a every day event but only available for a short time.
  7. Dear Wargaming, over the years i have probably given you a couple hundred of my real dollars in return for fun and engaging gameplay. BUt every 4-6 months i hate this game and your deceptive penny-ante tactics to squeeze just an extra buck or two out of each player It is deceptive and underhanded, and it is intentional. It is as unnecessary as it is enraging and it replaces every hour of enjoyment i have had playing with jut a general sense of being ripped off and taken advantage of, taken for granted... I'm not a player, i'm sheep. Of course i'm talking about your sneaky "Resupply using in-game currency if unavailable" tickbox in the consumables, camouflage and signals tabs. If there is a single player that intentionally chooses to burn doubloons this way, i will bet they also have a huge horn growing out of their forehead. Like 99.99% of your player base, this box is unchecked on every ship and in every tab it exists. In fact, the only time it is checked is after a patch, when Wargaming enables them all for me. I am pretty good about going through and unchecking it, but i am not perfect, i forget, i miss one... i see i have flags to spare so don't notice Until i look up and see my doubloon total is down 20, 50, 100 gold. THAT is when i realise my mistake, and that Wargaming has picked my pocket again. I open tickets, i complain, this should NEVER happen, and always the response is the same, Wargaming never reimburses doubloons you spend even if by mistake. Enough is enough. Even if i am the only player that gets suckered like this, it is something that i should never have to worry about. Fellow players, if this has happened to you, reply to this post, if you think its pretty crap way to reward players for spending real money, keep it on the front page. But this shouldn't happen, i should NEVER be out doubloons like this, I should never have to double check and see that the game clien t is going to steal from me. Whatever is patched or updated, My settings should never default to one that will cost me my E gold.
  8. When you move a captain up the line into a new ship you have a couple of options to avoid spending doubloons on getting your captain retrained and back to 100% performance on his skills. 1. Probably known already by most, but will state it anyway. If you have a premium of the same line move the captain over to it and earn enough XP to retrain the captain then move him back to the ship he came from. 2. Move captain up the line. Spend the 200k credits to cut training by half. Then click on your captain and hit the + button next to him. Finish retraining using Elite Captain XP. For this option to work you have to already have a 19 pt captain earning elite xp, Voila fully trained. Option 2............made me sag my head yesterday. As long as I have been around I somehow some way did not know you could do this. I'm not one to shy away on spending doubloons training and respeccing captains. I like to tinker with silly builds. Full AA build with Manual AAA FuryTaco. Check. Why. Just cause. Spending doubloons to tinker is one thing. Wasting them when I didn't need to is another. Figure if I didn't know there is bound to be another vet or non-vet that didn't know either. Hope this helps someone. Cheers.
  9. In this article: https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/development/royal-navy/ it says -> "Premium Tier VI battleship Warspite with a slot and commander — 220 Sovereigns, can be purchased only once. If you already have this ship in your Port and purchase it again, you'll receive 6,500 doubloons." Thing is, if you do this now you will only get 4550 doubloons. I believe the culprit is the current anniversary event which has a discount on premium ships bought for doubloons in-game, which actually runs until the 21st so there will be overlap tomorrow as well. So even you are trading Sovereigns for a ship you are hit by this when they refund you doubloons for a ship you already have. I have sent a ticket to Support and notified @TheURLGuy so I'm hoping this is an oversight and that myself and others that did this will get the doubloons we're owed. Not sure if @Gneisenau013 could look at it if URLGuy is afk? Also, there was no port slot addition even it said so in Arsenal. Just a heads up people, best to wait a few days. EDIT: Also the anniversary article states "–30% to the cost of available Premium Tier VI–VII ships in doubloons" We're using Sovereigns. They forgot to separate these two things in Arsenal/Store. EDIT2: Sending a ticket to Support helped, they credited 1950 doubloons and apologized for the confusion.

    Veteran Player Discount

    Should be something like: "5% discount per Service Level on the first purchase you make during the event". For those at Service Level 15, that would be a one time 75% discount. I feel like that would be an acceptable "Player Appreciation Event". Seems only fair after first time buyers got a 66% discount when no similar standard was available for earlier players. Remember, Wargaming: "Profit in business comes from repeat customers, customers that boast about your project or service, and that bring friends with them." ~W. Edwards Deming

    Can you buy doubloons on the PT server?

    I was wondering if it is possible to buy doubloons in the PT server. I have tried several times but when I try to log in I get the message "Username or password is incorrect" even though I use the same logon for the PT server as I do for the main NA server. Any suggestions, comments, wisdom on the issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Doubloons, Doubloons, Doubloons

    Based on Abba's song "Money, Money, Money": I grind all night, I grind all day, to buy the ships I want to play I'm so poor And after all the service fees I have no money for my fleet My hands are sore But in the port, there's a place to click If I got me a premium ship I wouldn't have to grind at all, it'll be like having my own mall Doubloons, doubloons, doubloons Such a boon In the whaling world Doubloons, doubloons, doubloons Will get them soon In the whaling world Aha aha All the ships I could buy If I had a couple doubloons It's the whaling world It's the whaling world Those ships tempt me very much but rotate out in a rush Haha, denied And even if I bought them all, I couldn't play them well at all I need a guide I'll have to save up some free xp For Missouri or Musashi A million credits in one game, I'll put the results in a frame Doubloons, doubloons, doubloons Such a boon In the whaling world Doubloons, doubloons, doubloons Will get them soon In the whaling world Aha aha All the ships I could buy If I had a couple doubloons It's the whaling world It's the whaling world Doubloons, doubloons, doubloons Such a boon In the whaling world Doubloons, doubloons, doubloons Will get them soon In the whaling world Aha aha All the ships I could buy If I had a couple doubloons It's the whaling world It's the whaling world
  13. 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
  14. Looks like this Summer Sale offers no bargain in compensation doubloons when purchasing a duplicate premium ship. WG will not repeat that mistake. $15.53 buys Warspite and port slot, or 3,250 compensation doubloons for duplication. $0.004778 per doubloon. (Port slot ignored in this arithmetic.) $15.77 buys 3,200 doubloons in the Premium Shop. $0.004928 per doubloon. This would be about $0.48 more if you could buy exactly 3,250 doubloons. Meh! It is unclear whether a port slot is still received with the compensation so I omitted it in this analysis. If someone deliberately buys a duplicate ship, please post in this thread whether you got a new port slot. I hope they offer for half-price some premium ships that I want.
  15. Hello fellow Warshippers, Few things to cover. Ever since I have started Warships. I have always struggled to get to maintain a comfortable amount of credits/coins. I'm fully aware, that some ships have a 'baked in' credit earning built in (which is great for WG to do for players, and should maintain it), such as; SIMS, Missouri. I generally play with higher tier of ships; meaning T7's and above, mostly at T9/T10's. A. What is your method of either maintaining a positive credit standing? B. The "Doubloon Blowout 3" (Link: Doubloon blowout 3) Is this the right time to maximise on the purchase? or is there better time/opportunity to maximise the money to better deal? (I'm thinking of buying the T10 permanent camo for the 50% repair cost reductions for my T10 ships in port. To help with question A) Your suggestions, and methods will be appreciate it. Best wishes, LowSpeed_US
  16. Karma. I set a "goal" when they introduced it to get mine to 300. Seemed like a good number to strive for. So now that I have gotten there I only have satisfaction from achieving the goal. You get karma for good play and good manners. It is a point system that recognizes desirable effort. Still no indication from WG on what the plans are for karma but a few things I would like to see tied to it. 1. Coal, or better yet, steel. From what I have read this "commodity" will come from clan achievements, some missions, crates. Why not as a reward for good behavior. 2. Doubloons would also be nice. 3. Even (real) supercontainers with a higher chance for ship drop, doubloons, high credit amounts or high elite/free XP amounts. Set any of these rewards on reaching target numbers. Maybe at 50, 100, 300, 500, and 1,000 karma. Make the rewards larger at each stage. And if you implement something like this make sure those who have passed one or more of the reward levels get the cumulative rewards! Still having fun and going on three years of play. Keep it up WG!
