  1. Since I have an obsession with CV threads, I thought it would be better to put all of my thoughts here, then to have all of my thoughts fragmented across multiple threads. First off, I am not claiming that CVs are not broken, or that they do not need fixing, but rather, that they are less broken than they many seem to believe that they are. I am also not claiming that countering CVs is feasible with the current way that players act on the NA server. Very rarely, maybe once every 50 games, will my CV run into a coordinated team, often since Cvs require team play to counter them, players stand little chance of fighting off a CV attack. On to the first part that I wish to speak on; skill gaps. Secondly, the balance between CVs. CVs effect on DDs, as well as other surface ships. Manual attacks, and CV damage. Now, onto the bane of al CV players, AA. Lastly potential fixes. I will add more suggestions later, but this is it for now. I would appreciate it if the comments were kept respectful, constructive, and if you downvote explain the rationale, thank you.
  2. Indy

    Just trying to figure out what happened to the Indy, why cant we buy her anymore? When will she be coming back? I never got the change to pick her up :(
  3. Where is the Southern Dragon

    I bought the Southern Dragon package...thought it was a great deal. Got the notifications ingame of the various items (shown in the screen shot), but the ship never appeared in the garage. Has anyone else had this problem? I submitted a ticket...but just curious if this is happening a lot.
  4. Ahoy mateys! I was chatting with a fellow player the other day and we were discussing where WG got most of its income in WoWS. Premium ships, premium time or dubloons? I guess consumables like flags etc could be a contributor too but in the end we thought the biggest piece of pie would fall under one of these categories. Does anyone know for sure what the breakdown is? It might also be interesting what the single largest income item has been in the last 12 months. My bet in this case - Santa crates. Thoughts.......
  5. Premium ships

    When I first started playing the game one thing I did was go by the Atago. I had no tier 8 battles in cruiser or any other class for the matter. It quickly became a port decoration and did not take it out again for quite some time due to the fact of getting instantly deleted and having a lot of team mates comment on poor game play. Here is my question; do you think that in order to get a premium ship you should have to have at least same tier experience in type. For example if you want to play the USS Texas you should have to have a tier 5 battleship or if you wanted to play the USS Kidd you should have a tire 8 destroyer? I know a lot of people are going say well the problem is these ships are not in the premium shop for that long. Maybe you could purchase them, but not be able to take them in to a random batter until you've reached that class. Still be able to play them in CO-OP. With the game going live on steam I just see this problem getting worse. It makes the game not fun not only for the people on your team, but also the player because I am sure you don't play just to get deleted in the first couple minutes of the game. What are your thoughts on this matter?
  6. Newer Poll, vote if you want.
  7. Do you guys think that premium ships are worth it? $55 for a Scharnhorst, $70 for a Derpitz!!! Oh and the $12 Albany. These ships seem too expensive. I was surprised at first because I had never seen an in game item that was this expensive. Now I'm thinking of getting one of these suckers. I'm finding it hard to make credits and I could really use something that makes 300k per game. My other option is Missouri. Heard that it is a commercial money printer. Ive got like less than a 100k free XP. How many games does it take to get 650,000 more? Are there certain months where there are discounts?
  8. Big Bug Since 6.12 I cannot not put my Iowa captain on my Missouri and could not put my Conquerer captain on my Nelson. A message popped up saying that I could not do that because they had to be of the same nation which of course they were. Also when I selected the Missouri and Nelson and chose to add a commander from a different ship the commanders did not shoe--all spaces were empty. Only by hovering my mouse over a slot could I tell what commander was there.
  9. This is about the removal of certain premium ships for being "excessively efficient". Wargaming has finally come out and said that Belfast and Mikhail Kutuzov are overpowered, but instead of balancing them they simply removed them from the shop and started pretending that they don't exist. They should not be able to get away with this. I have spent a lot of money on this game and for Wargaming to create such a large mess by leaving overpowered ships intact and in fact making them more problematic by leaving them to be exclusive to only part of the playerbase. As an owner of many premium ships I am fine with them being nerfed for the sake of game balance, please leave a comment if you feel the same.
  10. Since the days WOWS became available to the public, I have always wanted to see a Russian BB in my port. I was not in time to get the Imperiator Nikoli 1 and it appears likely never to be available again. The Oct. Revolution is a suitable replacement for the IN1. I bought it when it became available in the NA server Oct. 4 and have had good fun with it. Yes, the 305 mm guns are not good on Tier 7 BBs. I have had no damage recorded on some AP salvos ! However, I am able to set nice fires on the Tier 6 and 7 BBs. I can also able to do significant damage to CAs and even DDs. I have one shotted CAs with the APs and HP is very destructive overall. It is not a Russian Yamato. However, Oct. Revolution can spoil the opponent's day and the standard AA can knock down large portions of squadrons before they can deploy their weapons. Thanks WG for the Russian BB. Astrosaint
  11. Which of these 3 mighty ships would win? post your opinions in the comment section below!
  12. Premium Ships

    today i bought one premium ship (graf spee) and i didnt get it in my inventory yet! why is that.. who can i contact to see this.. it already charged the money.. so didnt have the ship yet.. regards
  13. 2 days ago, there was a tier 8 german premium cruiser on sale. Now its gone. I was thinking of buying it but the sale is now disappeared. It doesn't even come up in the Tech Tree. I don't remember that cruiser name. Why do they put up sales for so little time frame? Anybody knows what its called and how good it is?
  14. So I took a small break from WOWs this week and went back to WOT. and holy crap they've changed a lot with the light tanks (I'm still crying about some of the changes to my Chinese tanks. RIP autoloading little 59-16) but other than that most of the changes were pretty good!(looking at you arty rebalance!) anyways, I've been playing a lot in my WG.net Amx57mm which I won in a contest and a question popped into my head. Will WOWS ever have these type of units added into the game in the future? Last year WG hinted that they would be considering making WOWS a possible E-sports game, So I figured I'd maybe ask? can anyone answer this? anyways, until next time I'll C'ya on the Sea!
  15. Graf Spee

    Will she be offered again? Having seen her in games now I'd like to get her.
  16. New Premium Ships Ideas

    Ever since I joined WOWS some time ago, I've been grateful that WarGaming keeps rolling out new additions in the form of Tech-tree ships, and Premiums. However, despite adding so many amazing ships to the game; there are so many more that should have been added sooner if not, be considering adding to the game if not part of an extension to a tech-tree, at least a premium. Assuming that Wargaming will add British CV/DD tech trees, a Russian BB tech tree, French BB/DD tech trees, Italian BB/CR/DD tech trees, a German planned carrier tree, and a Japanese carrier tree extension that will all hopefully be added to the game soon. What ship(s) do you think they should add into the game. If it's not in the poll, feel free to respond in the comments. Here is some info on some of the ships in the polls: 1. USS Laffey (DD-724) - An Allen M. Sumner-class destroyer that was commissioned in 1944. She gained the nickname "The Ship That Would Not Die" for her exploits during the D-Day invasion and the battle of Okinawa where she successfully withstood the most unrelenting kamikaze air attacks in history. She survived WWII and remained in service until 1975 and is currently a museum ship in Patriots Point, South Carolina. 2. USS Samuel B. Roberts (DE-413) - A John C. Butler-class destroyer escort. Commissioned in 1944, she famously participated in the Battle off Samar as part of a small task unit known as Taffy 3, fighting against a large Japanese battle force outnumbered by more than 2 to 1. She severely damaged several cruisers before she was sunk with 90 sailors lost. For her courageous actions against heavily armed adversaries more than twice her size, she became known in navel lore as "the destroyer escort that fought like a battleship." 6. IJN Yahagi - One of the four Agano class light cruisers, she participated in the Battle of the Philippine Sea and the Battle of Leyte Gulf (she escaped both battles undamaged). In April, 1945, the Yahagi and eight destroyers screened the Japanese flagship Yamato as part of the failed kamakaze mission Operation Ten-Go and along with the Yamato, was one of the six ships sunk by carrier Task Force 58.
  17. The following was a post I wrote in response to iChase's Duca D'Aosta Update video on youtube regarding power creep with new ship branches and new premiums. iChase is concerned about power creep vs. balance in the game. This was my response. You can't blame WG for these buffs to premium ships. We are actually at fault as a community. Every new premium ship or ship branch that is released follows a disturbingly familiar pattern: 1. New Ship(s) announced. Players get excited and want to know more. 2. New ships is given to supertesters and community contributors for testing/reviewing. 3. Ship reviews released by community contributors YT or on the blogs. 3a. Community contributors tell the public everything about the ship. This includes strengths and weaknesses of each ship. 3b. Community contributors share their opinions. SOME overreact about weakness. 4. Players react to the review of the ship. Oftentimes focusing on the bad or go batshit crazy about an actual or perceived weakness. 5. Wargaming notices the fall out. To avoid taking a financial hit, they buff the ship whether it needed it or not. The Ship's release is delayed to make the changes. 6. Community contributors release an update to their reviews. If the players like the changes to the ship, the ship gets released. If not, repeat from step 4. 7. The ship is released more powerful than it was originally intended to be. Now satisfied players buy the ship. Wargaming avoids a financial hit. My solution to this? Well I don't really have one. Wargaming could stop giving community contributors the ships before they're released, but then WG loses the advertising and feedback mechanisms, community contributors lose their revenue, and players don't get the info they want. It would break the cycle, but the real question is that what do we, as a community, want? Do we as a community want powerful premiums we can buy or do we want a balanced, free-to-play game? What is your opinion on this issue? EDIT: For those who may not be framiliar with the term 'Power Creep', it essentially means that every new item (or ship) released is better or stronger than the last.
  18. So, anime ships. After ARP, Wargaming is furthering itself with a collaboration with Highschool fleet. That is nice and all, but the saturation of Anime content is a bit heavy. Now don't get me wrong, I ain't hating on anime, but the majority of the players, who are not on Wargaming's social platforms by the way, don't 100% dig the anime content. Sure, it can be disabled and all, but that is not what this is about. The amount of content tilting towards something only 20% of the community embraces is not the way to provide true service. Now, I am not complaining at all about free ships. Heck, reskin anything and give me a mission and I am on it like sour on kraut, but it would be nice to shake things up over on the allied side. Out of American War movies and TV shows, I have pulled out some ships that could be used and would be pretty nice to use, as they have some value to them. 1. USS Alfred A. Cunningham from The Incredible Mr. Limpet - This was a really fun movie starring Don Knotts. Henry Limpet, played by Knotts, falls into the ocean and turns into a fish, and ends up aiding the US navy by guiding torpedoes as a fish. Yeah, crazy, right? Well, This ship comes from a class of destroyer that would be nice in this game to have, and Mr. Limpet could be the captain. Likewise, he could receive a special captain buff of 10-15% torpedo speed in reference to his work changing the direction of the torpedoes. 2. USS Eldridge from The Philadelphia Experiment - USS Eldridge (DE-173), a Cannon-class destroyer escort, was a ship of the United States Navy named for Lieutenant Commander John Eldridge, Jr., a hero of the invasion of the Solomon Islands. It was chosen for the experiment testing cloaking devices for navy warships. David Herdeg must figure out a way to stop the vortex in 1984 this project created before it destroys Earth. Because in the movie he says "The Navy owes me 40 years back pay", he could captain the Eldrige and recieve a 5-10% credit bonus to help with the back pay. 3. USS Livingston from Mister Roberts - Captain Robert is a dedicated and efficient officer aboard a cargo freighter. Wanting more action, he chucks a palm tree overboard and is given command of a fictional destroyer named USS Livingston. This could be made out of any ship for this one, but captain Robert could be given a 5% speed boost for his exceptional record as a captain. 4. USS Semmes from Crash Dive - A movie mostly about subs, it features a Clemson-class Destroyer that is essentially a tier 4 American version of Belfast but with torps. This can come with any old captain, but would be a fun new ship to have. And yes, it would come with a severely nerfed version of Radar and Hydro. 5. USS John Paul Jones from Destroyer - A Clemson class destroyer that holds it's own against 6 planes. Chief Bosun's Mate Steve "Boley" Boleslavski is the main character, and he is quite a dynamic little spitfire of a sailor. Since a Clemson really can't shoot down 6 planes on its own, the captain would come with a 25% boost to AA. 6. PC-1168 (or USS Teakettle) from You're in the Navy Now - Lieutenant John W. Harkness has been recruited to command a navy ship with an experimental condenser unit on its steam engine. As the Teakettle goes on, it pulls an impressive service record until it runs smack-dab into the side of an aircraft carrier (sounds like me when I play). In honor of Harkness's impressive engineering prowess and the ships experimental engines, the captain, Harkness himself, would come with Last Stand already on him, and situational awareness so we have no more incidents running into carriers (damn noobs....). 7. USS Hopewell from Convoy - a TV series that did not live long, but showed the exploits of a US Wickes-class destroyer. Her captain, Commander Dan Talbot, could come with a 5% torpedo protection buff since in the show a torpedo got stuck in her hull and did not detonate. Talk about luck, I wish I could do that in my ships. 8. USS Franklin from Battle Stations - a movie about the USS Franklin, CV-13. I don't know much about this movie, but a CV would be a nice to have considering the lower tier ships involved, and the lack of battleships. 9. Also from You're in the Navy Now, the ships USS Roanoke (CL-145) and USS Perry (DD-844) are in the production. Both of these would be great additions, as Roanoke is a Worcester-class and could work around tier 8 or 9, while Perry is a Gearing-class, and fit's accordingly. 10. USS Caine from The Caine Mutiny - A movie plagued with the hunt for more strawberries. In this movie, Humphrey Bogart is the captain of a destroyer minesweeper. This ship is a Wickes class destroyer, and the captain could come with a 10% speed boost to help with getting back to Pearl Harbor for a court marshal. Captain Ideas: Captains from Mchale's Navy, like Capt. Wallace Burton Binghamton, Lt. Cdr. Quinton McHale, Ensign Charles Parker, and Lt. Elroy Carpenter; along with Admiral Rogers and Admiral Reynolds. Captain Kirk and other captains from Star Trek (Please, we all know that would be wonderful) I believe these 11 ships and/or the captains would be a nice addition for an ARP-like event showcasing ships from more western media productions, and all of them could fit in-game. The ships also have a spot in pop-culture as well, from action-comedy to action-drama. What do you think? Would this be a nice change in the pace after they release more anime ships? Would it be nice to see something different in the name of variety?
  19. Ideas for new premium ships

    I had idea for a premium ship the other day that I think would be good for the game. I think she would be a good ship. IJN Shinano: She was planned to be the 3rd ship of the yamato class Battleship, but later was changed to be a aircraft carrier but kept the yamato's haul. It was sunk 10 days after completion by a US submarine. she would be a aircraft carrier with the yamato's haul. and there are no submarines in game. she would make a good CV but i don't know what tier it should be but it should be a high tier. that is all,if you guys have ideas for a premium ship,tell me what you think.
  20. So, I happened upon some footage the other day of two premiums duking it out on the seas of battle. The Niko-lais have the initial numbers advantage but don’t give up yet, the Kat-ori may be slow but she is no slouch! Oh no! At 3:44 the Niko-lai bunch herds the Kat-ori into a corner! All pupper-cannons are firing but the Kat-ori has nowhere to run! At 4:30 the Kat-ori tries to slip through their defenses but is met with a loud salvo of cuteness! But wait, what is this?! The Kat-ori pulls a sly move and distracts the Niko-lais with a small object and slips away! Well, the Kat-ori is gone and the puppers (cross that out) Niko-lais accept their defeat. Stay tuned for future showdowns!
  21. Crew Training

    Background: I've played WoT since 2012.. the motto was that no premium tank should have it's own trained crew, since you would put in a crew from a regular tank. With the new skills has everyone's idea about not having a specifically trained crew for your premium ships? Here's an example: USS Atlanta - Since all the cruisers in the US line have 6" + main guns means that you would not research Basic or Advanced Fire Training since that only affects guns less than 140mm. BUT... since the Atlanta has 127mm Main guns, that means I could fire them 10% faster and extend the range from 11.1km to 13.6km. So wouldn't it be better to specialize a captain just for the Atlanta, and when he gets to 19 skill points, use the extra XP for the normal commanders then?
  22. Premium Ships and Capt Training

    Noob here. I have 2 premium ships and am trying to understand their advantage in training and rotating captains. Certainly it's easier for capts to accrue more points with these ships. If I rotate them off and to another ship, does that ship have to be from same nation (assume so) and CLASS of ship? In other words, can I only transfer a battleship capt to another battleship? Will he need to be retained if another battleship? If another CLASS of ship, presumably he'll need to be retained/cost more points? Does it ever make sense to move a capt to another CLASS ship? Thanks!
  23. Blys Stealth Fire Nerf?

    Question for the community if anyone has an answer. I'm thinking about buying the Blyskawica while its available. However, with the upcoming nerfs to stealth fire I am hesitant to do so. I know the devs have stated that they will not nerf premiums, but they also have stated that they will compensate ships that they are removing stealth fire from. Not sure if this applies only to tech tree ships, or since they are compensating for the nerf they will extend it to premium ships as well. Does anyone have an answer of any thoughts on the matter?
  24. i like the Scharnhorst the most and since i have spare doubloons, im wondering what is worth while? sapien seems like a good credit maker if im too lazy to play a real ship i want a japanese ship that isn't the atago since i already have the arp atago warspite seems too frail and slow to be worthwhile am i looking at this wrong? PS: when does free XP conversion sale happen like in WoT
  25. Does anyone know when the Marblehead will become available to purchase with doubloons in game?
