  1. Ok, I know some of you know how to read the signal flags to decode the message. There are a LOT of signal flags on the PR and I'm sure someone put a message there. So if you swabbies can't read this, would someone point me to a book on signals please? I know a bunch of yahoos will post salty answers, but I am really looking to see if there is an actual message in this instead of salty smart A jokes.
  2. If I am going to do a "grind" I'd rather grind my 9 T7 cruisers thru Narai every day. I looked at my totals today for earned credits, free XP and elite commander xp after going thru the op with all 9 ships and this is a much more pleasant, and rewarding grind that the PR event. One day totals are: Credits: 7,513,872 Free XP: 95,770 Elite Commander XP: 355,048 Of course I have premium time, been flying every premium flag I have, plus the New Year Streamer cammo as well, to get these numbers but, by the end of the Narai week I will have 1 10 point captain to 19 points and another to 16 points, plus, I will have added enough free XP to have more than 1.5 million banked for Hayate when she is released. So much more rewarding...

    pr grind

    can we all agree that the pr grind should not happen again
  4. https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/general-news/dockyard/ Lets take only the last directive: So you need complete this in 24h. Lets say play really well and get get around 5k xp (because you dont going win all matches) with all XP buffs (so trow aways the free part alread), in 1 hour playing good you can play maybe 4 matches, thats 20k xp. Even if you play like that for 24h you can only do 480.000 of XP And you need complete at least 6 directives to get the ship, with different classes, and do at least 350k xp in each... and free xp in cvs... You just cant, its math impossible to do that. Even if you play like a bot and start a match ever 5 min you still cant. The numbers are literaly impossible.
  5. PR grind is insane and i don't even care about it the problem is that they keep saying that "there's so much content in this patch" and i agree they are right there's a lot of content in this patch problem being this content is locked behind either these damn "impossible" directives this stupid dockyard that raises the question if the dockyard continues in the game this madness will happen again and again and again.....(FYI a damn large cruiser costs +/- 50M points imagine what a BB would cost(also if a cruiser costs from 35k to 59k then...)) this downgraded snowflakes (last year was 50(T9), 100(T10) and 200(T8-10 prem) steel) now we're getting 50 steel for all T8-9 ships and for the T10s they are getting the worse box possible that you'll for sure get 4 camos (WG doesn't state the % chances(i mean they say it is a pretty good value wink wink nudge nudge)) i mean what they expected. if they did an opt in option to get last year snowflakes instead of this i didn't see it.... anyway a Merry Christmas for y'all.
  6. Hello, my name is KingCakeBaby, formerly Cannibal4Christ. I played my first game of World of Tanks in April of 2011 and have dedicated probably an average of thirty hours a week over the past eight years to Wargaming’s various titles; with this year being the exception due to the birth of my son in January. I want to pause for a moment because I want that to sink in. I have been with this company for the greater part of a decade. I have been here longer than most of the moderators, forum administrators, community contributors, developers and even upper management. There’s very few employees you can name who have been here longer, or put in as many hours as I have not just in playing these games, but also in helping in their development. I was an alpha tester for World of Warplanes, World of Warships, World of Warships Legends and even with World of Tanks Generals. I was a supertester for World of Warships for the first two years before life and circumstances overtook me. I’m not very well known in the game or on the forums. I try not to post unless I have something important to say and typically someone tends to beat me to it. I’m an average player at best and I admit that I have yet to grasp some of the finer points of the game. Even so, I don’t think there was ever a time when I did not get great enjoyment from logging in and doing what I do. I also have a great deal of loyalty towards this company, to the point that this is really the only game I play anymore. When an unpopular changes are announced I take the wait and see approach and have usually been rewarded for my patience with an eventual equilibrium. When people complained about having to pay for certain things my response was always that this is a business and there is a lot of money that goes into development, marketing, logistics, servers, employees, events, etc. I remember the matchmaking flood of Type 59s and E-25s so I can also understand why premium vehicles cost as much as they do. I say this to illustrate the point that I have never been one to fly to the pitchforks or unload on the forums when something doesn’t go my way. I expect hiccups and issues and growing pains from a game that is in a state of constant evolution and I am not one to cry about things that I can’t change, I just do my best to wait for the patches or adapt to the changes and enjoy myself regardless. I’m too damn old and been through too much in life to be riled up by a video game. I never understood the protest posts on the forum, being of the mindset that if something bothers you that badly why wouldn’t you move on to something that doesn’t and honestly a lot of them are fair petty. That changed a couple of days ago. With the announcement of the Puerto Rico event I was incredibly excited and decided to make time to play again this holiday season even if I have to pull all nighters. I put $100 to the side to make it a little less painful, because I assumed the total price for the bonuses would be anywhere from $50 - $100 in an effort to make some profit and to somewhat mitigate the damage of PRs clogging the queues. I updated the game and was pretty quickly confused and disappointed when I opened the directives tab. In the past, when someone complained that WG was an evil corporation trying to swindle their poor and unassuming player base with shifty money grabs I always rolled my eyes, but wow. I know there has been a lot of feedback on the PR issue already, and I fully expect mine to be lost among them with no one reading this and no one caring, but honestly I am so frustrated that I have to write this out anyways. I’m not particularly disappointed that I won’t be getting the ship. There are plenty of steel ships that I will never see as I have no way of gaining steel in any meaningful amount and no, 75 per tier X is not that. The thing that really breaks my heart is the very blatant lies told to the players about the feasibility of obtainment. The reality is the best player in the world could not get this ship for free in the time limit allotted with the missions the way they are. They are lies by the way, regardless of how you try to spin it. There are enough screen caps floating around from passages on the official channel and employee comments that I’m not going to go into it. I will say that, as someone who studies law and works in the industry, a ‘misunderstanding’ on the part of the consumer based on what was said by the provider is still the legal definition of false advertising. Someone with more time and energy might be able to make something of that, especially since this isn’t the first time there’s been such a ‘misunderstanding’ between Wargaming and the player base. The other issue I take offense to is the response by @Sub_Octavian. That was not an apology, that was tantamount to an insult towards a very passionate and loyal fan base, even if they are occasionally misguided in their zeal. I tend to defend the position of the staff as much as possible because I don’t think it’s fair the amount you guys are dumped on from ungrateful players, but after reading that you couldn’t have offended me more if you had personally slapped me. You know better. The company knows better. They definitely should by now with how often they find themselves in this situation. You shouldn’t be milking your fan base, you should be rewarding the amount of money and time and dedication they put in over the year; for playing through the broken reworks and game mechanics while keeping faith that you guys are working on it. Believe it or not, people tend to spend more money on products when they believe the company actually values them. There is a large amount of the player base who is more than happy to pay for things, but you guys really need to find some kind of balance. I don’t expect free things, and I acknowledge that I have gotten some in the past and I am grateful for them. Honestly you guys used to be really generous and still are sometimes with the occasional captain skill resets and the like. It just seems that for the past three years, any time you’ve done anything under the guise of doing something for the players it always comes with a price tag or a caveat. The dockyard is an amazing example of something that could’ve been for the players. It’s a new concept that was universally praised as a great addition to the game (how often does that happen?), and if it was made to act as a campaign or similar mechanic it would even be amazing to have another long term goal to work towards in a game where you guys just released the research bureau because you’re afraid you lack end game features. Give players the opportunity to pick a ship to work towards. They could have tiers with coal ships being easier while steel and specialty ships might take the better part of a year. Unfortunately you’ve already forever tainted this amazing concept. I know there will probably be some spin and damage control coming in the near future, but it’s going to be an empty and transparent gesture. My hope is that you guys take the opportunity to learn from this and move forward in a positive direction that restores the faith that I and many others have lost over the years and specifically with this fiasco. Sit down, have a meeting and come up with some checks and balances so this doesn’t happen again. Actually do something to show the players that you appreciate them and listen to their concerns. This adversarial relationship that exists between WG and the players is exhausting, and I don’t think either will last much longer if mutual respect and understanding isn’t found. I’ve spent all year looking forward to the time when my responsibilities would allow me to play again and all year looking forward to introducing my son to his first warship when you guys come to the USS Hornet next month, and now I don’t want to do either. For someone who has been doing this for eight years, the complete lack of enthusiasm I now find for this company is incredibly distressing. I hope you recover WG, but more than that I hope you are better for it. Regards, KCB
  7. As we all know, much has been said about the Puerto Rico and the grind from hell. World of Warships community contributors coming out in force against these directives which from the point of view of an average player like myself are almost impossible to do. Flamu himself stating "I play this game for a living every day and I don't see myself completing this" him also being one of the more experienced players of the game holding the title of superunicum should alone speak volumes of how difficult these directive really are. Of course, there is an alternative allowing players to skip the grind. However this alternative method costs around $230 USD, iChaseGaming also speaking out about this stated "if you have any time left at the end of March the amount of money you would sink into this pixel ship is enough to get you from Toronto Canada to Miami and back, or you could get an array of triple A games including Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto V among others, or for about the same price you could get an Xbox One S on Amazon". So, enough of the rattling on about what others have said. I think that we all need to send a message to WarGaming stating that these directives and the cost of skipping them is blatantly unfair and greedy in every sense of the word. It is this kind of daylight robbery which has killed games in the past, and if they continue down this path then World of Warships will not live to see 2021 I'm 100% certain that it is because of these directives and WarGaming's golden ship figuratively and literally that World of Warships will see a sharp dip in the player numbers. It doesn't take much to know that this is a killing blow waiting to happen and if it is not rectified soon then this game will suffer the consequences of their poor decisions. This amount of greed is only bested by games publisher Electronic Arts (EA) and to see World of Warships a game that I personally am still passionate about even though I was considering quitting at the end of the year regardless going down the same road as EA is something I will not stand for, supertesters whom I will not name have even exclaimed that they will be turning in their ST contracts and quit the game based on this patch alone. I think all there is to be said on this matter has been said but WarGaming you have the tools to right this wrong, it is up to you to decide whether this game lives or dies. Flamu's Highlight: iChaseGaming's Video:
  8. So I got a ludicrous amount of doubloons from my hunt for the Missouri once again, and was able to get the 3 premium boosters for it. I am interested in knowing how many more boosters (of the "free" section) I would need to complete this vessel. Thanks in advanced, Chrispy
  9. I just do not get the rating system. I had another good day today (88% win rate) which included a win in my Gearing, When I went to update and check my stats win WoWs stats, it showed my rating for the solo DD battle as a very bad 680? This was a win, in a cv game and numerous radar ships where I secured two caps, spotted, survived, with my torps caused many a BB to turn broadside to my team, smoked up teammates, and did 15K damage. Granted damage was low, but heck I did what was necessary for a win. A 680...really?? Does that sound right to you guys ?
