  1. So, I'm a returning player that's getting hooked by the game again and I'm wondering about which premium ship I should get to: 1._ Practice the game and see how the meta has developed. 2._ Get some credits by doing so. I have some choises from way back, like the Atlanta, Scharnhorst, Tirpitz and the Atago. You know, simple basic ships without any "gimmicks" lol I want to see if you people can recommend some hidden gems too. Hope fellow shikikans could help. Thank you. -Kutejikashi
  2. I know there used to be way to purchase premium ships for friend. I am not seeing that option any more. Is there a way to purchase a ship for my buddy?
  3. Hello there. Look like the time has almos tcome to goive to certai ships, some Preferential Match Making to certain premium ships, In the Beginning they were well suited for their task; but no with all the New Nations and tech trees, such ships are often outclassed when they are 2 levels away from their base tier. (And yes,I know, this is not Wolrd of Tanks, But even there you wont, see a IS-6 or a Jagdtiger 8.8 facing tier 10 battles). JAPAN: None. USA: Atlanta and Flint.- At first, they were quite a pair of pain buggers on tier 9 battles, (There were less tech tree ships/nations), but now, with the current skill tree and meta, and the nerf on Flint's firing distance, both cruiser are frequently outgunned on tier 9 battles Should they have Preferential Matchmaking: Yes (up to tier 8 battles) U.S.S.R.: Stalinium Rounds and Armor Comrade. (None) Germany: Odin.- On initial Tests, it was at first quite OP, but then it suffered a massive nerf on Health Points. From my point of view, Odin struggles nn Tier 10 battles, Not only on HP, but with main guns range (I' ll take Tirptiz for Tier 10 battles instead of a Odin). On the other hand, as a new comer, perhaps it is still too early for a preferential M.M. Should it have Preferential Matchmaking: Maybe (up to tier 9 battles) Graf Spee: Not sure, some times struggles, some times goes fine. Preferential Matchmaking: Maybe (up to tier 7 battles) München: Not sure either Preferential Matchmaking: Maybe (up to tier 8 battles) United Kingdom: Nelson.- Ah, good ol' Nelson, not much to say about it, except that it is the favorite fodder for big bad boys from tier 9. Any one said Bow Overmatch? Should it have Preferential Matchmaking: Yes (up to tier 8 battles) France: None Pan-Asia: None Italy: Duca D'Aosta.- I heard from the horse mouth, that it struggles a lot on Tier 8 Battles. That's all. Should it have Preferential Matchmaking: Yes (up to tier 7 battles) Europe: None Any CV from Any Country: HAHAHAHAHAHA..... NO What do you think about it? Speak up your mind and Share your opinions... But above all, DON'T GET SALTY and let's keep it cool, Oky?
  4. Occasionally I test ships in training rooms. Currently you can only select the tech tree ships to play against when you do that. It would be nice to be able to select Premium Ships as well given that there are so many of them in the game. Any particular reason they are not included? You would think technically it should not be a big deal to do so. I would also think people would be interested in having them in the training room, hence the poll.
  5. So what are the best (most OP) non cv premium ships available right now? For 14k dubloons what would be the best purchase(s) available - one 25% off coupon is available? Let's get the ubiquitous "it depends on your play style" useless response out of the way: cv's don't count, all other ships/play styles are ok. assume same skill level across all ship types - the question is which available ship is strongest assuming the best driver is driving her that can be purchased for 14,000 dubloons with 25% off coupon. A combination of ships is possible as long as the total price is respected. I'd love to hear your thoughts! @LittleWhiteMouse i would greatly appreciate your thoughts if you have the time. Thanks
  6. Do premium ships bought in the tech tree for doubloons come with a port slot and/or captain, and can you use a coupon to discount the price? I noticed that Lenin and Perth are both 300 doubloons cheaper in the tech tree than they are in the armory, and would like to know if there's a difference?
  7. On order to complete some missions, I need a Premium ship. OK, fine. However, there's a price discrepancy between the advertised price in game and the Premium Shop. In game the ships' price is. 5K Gold, in the game premium shop, it's 5.3K Gold, which is it? This is bad advertising. I don't need the bundle, all I want is the ship. I have commanders to train and 22 extra port slots.
  8. I heard a CC say a couple of weeks ago that there is supposedly an Italian "super cruiser" in development. I can't remember which CC it was and can't find the video in my history. Anyway, just wanting to see if anyone knows if this is true or not? If so, is it going to be more like a regular CA or more like a "super cruiser?"
  9. I love and play all the lines of the IJN; BB, CV, DD, Cruisers (which are like big DDs). But the one ship I would like to play has supposedly been put out of my reach for eternity, I started playing world of warships just after Musashi was removed from the store, so I never had a chance to get it. I completely understand the developers reasons for removing Mushasi from the store (not saying I agree or disagree) but removing it completely?!? Musashi was removed to my knowledge because it was becoming too popular in the tier 9 line up (too many being played); the same reason was used to remove the Jean Bart, but then they add Jean Bart B to the store. I think they should add Musashi to the steel, coal, or RP (research point) ship lines, I think it fits there perfectly. I am not saying make it cheep (I think 30,000 steel sounds reasonable), but at least make it obtainable through some means besides preying on Santa containers (since I don't own most of the premium ships and odds are near zero to get a musashi in the first place, I'm not even gonna try that way unless I literally win the lottery). If the Musashi is added to the steel, coal, or RP ship lines, I will save all my resources to get it, no matter how long it takes. I feel like I'm not alone in my thoughts and would like to see the Musashi become obtainable again in some way or form.
  10. Hi all, Destroyers were always a fun ship type to play. So how about considering a new Tier 10 Premium destroyer for the US navy? Idea - I had this idea since starting from 10.0.2, USS Somers will become unavailable to obtain from the Armory for an undefined period of time. Although it will be replaced by the USS Austin, there will be no Tier 10 Premium Destroyers for US Navy. You might think that we don't even need a Tier 10 Premium destroyer for the US Navy, but in World of Warships, starting from Tier 5 (US), every tier has a premium destroyer: T5 Hill, T6 Monaghan, T7 Sims/ Sim B, T8 Kidd, T9 Benham and Black, and no T10 premium destroyer after 10.0.2 :( USS Allen M. Sumner DD-692. Ship Length - 376 feet Beam - 40 feet Draft - 15 feet Speed - 34 knots Hit Points - between 18,000 - 20,000 Armaments Main guns - Three 130mm double-barrelled guns Rate of Fire - 20 shots/minutes Reload time - 3 seconds Firing Range - between 12 - 13km Maximum HE Shell Damage - 2,200 Maximum AP Shell Damage - 2,600 AA Defence Twelfth 40mm Bofors Average damage per second - between 90 - 130 Firing Range - between 3 - 4km Eleven 20mm Oerlikon Average damage per second - between 45 - 65 Firing Range - between 2 - 3km Torpedoes Two quintuple(5) Torpedo launchers Torpedo Warhead - 533mm Rate of Fire - between 0.85 - 0.66 shots/ minutes Reload Time - between 70 - 90 seconds Firing Range - 16.5km Torpedo Speed - 66 knots Maximum Damage - 20,000 Possible Consumables Damage Control Party Smoke Generator/Hydroacoustic Search Engine Boost/ Enhanced AA Defence
  11. As many of you already know, the Vampire II has been announced as an upcoming special ship for the Commonwealth. Unlike the Belfast 43 or the promised West Virgina 44, this is a new historical ship that shares it's name with another lower tier premium ship that was its real life predecessor. That Wargaming has decided to release two ships that had the same name is a big deal, because it opens the door for other such situations to potentially happen. Some possibilities are: X Lexington II - Essex class aircraft carrier that still exists as a museum ship in Texas. X Ark Royal II - Audacious class aircraft carrier. VII St. Louis II - Sister ship to VII Helena VII Phoenix II (also Admiral Belgrano) - Sister ship to VII Boise (Nueve de Julio) sunk during the Falklands war. VIII Chikuma II - Siter ship to VIII Tone, which could very easily be implemented with a different air squadron from Tone. I am sure there are others that I am forgetting about, but this is a good starting point for this discussion. What successor ships would the rest of you like to see in the game?
  12. Not that you will care, and will probably be flamed, but here goes; Ill keep it short, writing this on my phone... I have 5.2 Million FXP, which I usually use for RB; I am NOT spending any of it on the New Freemium ships.. SCENARIO: One) IF you had made both new T10 DD's for 1 Million or 1.25 Million, I would have bought BOTH (even if they are somewhat mediocre/ and 0Or Im tired of smokeless DD's to death now..) Now that you have made them 2M Each, I am NOT buying any of them, Period, and keeping my FXP for God Know's what... Two) If you Release AGIR or SIEGFRIED or ODIN as mediocre ships, Im not buying them ... In fact, I have bought MAINZ and the Lunar New Years ships, and thats it this year; why ? Too many mediocre ships, or Overpriced, or BOTH.. Just a Head's up, that you business decisions are making me HOARD FXP, Coal etc., and my Wallet purchases are way down ! Conclusion; Good Going , I guess ? Regards JM PS I am a Mega Whale btw, I usually buy everything, every month..

    Love the Alaska....despise the Puerto Rico

    It is very unfortunate that the USS Puerto Rico is nigh impossible for me to acquire. I was much looking forward to getting the "Rich Port" in my own WoWS port, and sailing her to glory.....but the recent New Years' Directives being outrageously too difficult to complete within the 32 days it will last (my winter break does not even last that long), and with the desire for me to spend some quality time with my own family over the holidays...….I will have to pass over the Puerto Rico. But......why bother with the Puerto Rico in the first place when I have the USS Alaska? I am proud of my Alaska. She is a great Tier IX ship. Alaska actually built by the United States navy (unlike the Puerto Rico, who Wargaming based off of one of the submitted proposal designs to built the battlecruiser design that was to be the Alaskas). She has very good bulk, can tank a decent amount of damage to her citadel, and has powerful guns that make other cruisers subconsciously aware of their vulnerable citadels...... …….this is why I love the Alaska. She cost only 1 million Free XP and 1 single credit to get, and that is a hell of a lot better than the nightmarish grind that is the Dockyard to get Puerto Rico. So I am sticking firmly with my Alaska. If I really need to play a Tier X American cruiser, I will just rely on my good ol' USS Des Moines. And that's that.
  14. Should I pick up prinz eugen, indomitable, or Massachusetts?
  15. If Wargaming wants more low tier gameplay by experienced players (AKA "seal clubbing"), in addition to the hated Research Bureau, they should offer premiums for experienced players' high tier captains at tier 4. Tier 4 is protected from being up-tiered past five, while still offering all currently available game modes (including the dreaded tier 4 aircraft carriers), making it ideal for low tier gaming. However, this is the tier that offers the fewest premiums, and most of those are not available for purchase for resources or doubloons. I'm sure there are plenty of WWI or 1920 era ships that can be turned into premiums at this level. Any thoughts on why Wargaming seems to be neglecting premiums at tier 4?
  16. Thanks, WG, for the great Christmas gifts this year. I think this is the best one so far! I spent $116 on 16 Mega and 20 Big Gifts for myself. My son spent $75 giving me another 20 Mega Gifts for Christmas. I used Doubloons from those Gifts to grab another 12 Mega Gifts. Those 48 Mega and 20 Big Gifts netted: Signals, Camouflage, Coal, and Doubloons Dragon 45 Hydra 120 Wyvern 150 Leviathan 120 Basilisk 45 Red Dragon 15 Scylla 30 Frosty Fir Tree 104 New Year Streamer 192 Asian Lantern 10 Mosaic 5 Coal 32,500 Doubloons 17,000 (some spent on Mega Gifts) Ships Viribis Unitis Yahagi Yudachi Massachusetts Lenin Vanguard Kii Kaga Le Terrible Wichita Alabama Those 11 ships are the best Christmas haul to date. In 2016 I got 6 ships. In 2017 and 2018 I got 8 ships each year. This year the tangible value for the $191 that my son and I spent equaled $518! (I only monetized the ships and doubloons to determine that value.) Thanks for the Merry Christmas WG and I am looking forward to 2020 with 100 premium ships in my port!
  17. I'm only into my first 10 games thus far. However, I did learn a good lesson in that passing judgement on a ship based solely on "hard stats," caused me to miss out on a fun experience for a long time. Ever since the Mass has been available, I've always bitten my thumb at her "so to speak." This was mainly due to the fact that she has a very short main gun range "by USN standards," and I also knew her main battery accuracy was pretty not good. Also, I have the Alabama, which has good gun range and pretty decent accuracy. Therefore, it never crossed my mind to get the Mass. However, I got about 20k doubloons in my last round of santa crates. I saw I could get the Mass for 25% off, just under 9800 doubloons in the Armory. Since I do enjoy collecting ships, and getting Mass would give me all 3 t8 USN BBs currently available, I picked her up. I put my old 19pt NC captain in her "since I had him respeced for my Ohio," and off I went. I only managed 80k my first game, but I was playing it safe since it was a t10 game. Third game I was top tier and managed 140k and I don't think I'll have any issues doing a lot more once I get used to her. Basically, I learned that while not great, the main gun accuracy wasn't as "stupidly bad" as I thought it would be. Her secondaries are awesome and I've gotten a good amount of damage out of them every game so far. She also seems to deal with planes just as good as you would expect from a USN capital ship. Long story short, I'm glad I took the gamble picking the Mass up. I think I'm actually going to like her more than the tirpitz and Bismarck and I'll probably try her out in the clan brawl on Saturday.
  18. We keep referring to it as premium, but I'm not sure. Knowing that might help folks weigh in on the decision on the value of it. Does the PR have the earning bonuses of a premium ship? So far the players I've asked in game both said that they did NOT think it was a particularly good earner, so maybe it is not actually a premium - but I have not been able to find any official word. Anyone got a link to verify it one way or another? Link to explain the differences:
  19. I decided this may be worth posting, because almost every game I've played in my Ohio, someone " often multiple people," will ask about the ship. I know the odds are slim those same players look at the forum, but I haven't really seen anyone posting their thoughts on it post release, and I have yet in fact to meet another Ohio in the same match as me. ( I have seen a few Thunderers.) Therefore, I thought it may be worthwhile to share my opinion of her. Please be aware beforehand that this is strictly my OPINION, and yours may be vastly different than mine, and whether or not a ship is worth earning is ultimately a decision one must make for him or herself. So, is she a good ship? In my opinion she is a great ship! I really enjoy her as a whole. She's like a slightly slower Montana with bigger guns in fast turning turrets. She has a great secondary armament "if you build for it." She has awesome AA, good dispersion on the 457s, heals with fast recharges, and is on the tried and true Montana hull that, when angled, is quite tanky and absorbs damage quite well. Now if you were hoping for a "borderline OP" ship like a Stalingrad, or "blatantly OP" ship like Smolensk, then you may be disappointed as, while very strong, she is very much "balanced" in every sense of the word. There are instances where she will outshine other BBs at her tier. However, in just as many cases, the opposite will be true. I began having better results with her when I quit using my 19 point Montana captain and took a 17 point captain out of the NC and retrained him with secondary's in mind. While still not an all out brawler like the GK, Ohio does lend herself to a little bit more aggressive gameplay as she doesn't perform long range gunnery duties quite as well as her tech tree sister "due to having fewer guns. " In closing, I think Ohio is a great ship, and Im happy that I have her in my port. Again though, whether or not she is worth the work, (or money,) is up to the individual to decide. I will post some photos below to show my current captain skills, as well as the modules I chose.
  20. I got this Cupon and want to know what's a fun, chill ship to use? I see I can get the Alaska for $55 but I heard the play-style is stressful. Any good premium ships from the shop that any of you think is worth using the cupon on?

    Any New T10 BBs On The Horizon?

    Anybody who plays with me in game knows that I am without question, a BB main. I do play DDs, and CAs too, but I never get anywhere near as much consistent fun and enjoyment out of either of those ship types as I do my BBs. That being said, I currently have every t10 tech tree BB in game. Montana is my favorite and Kremlin isn't too far behind. However, I'm starting to get rather bored with the BBs that I have and I'm starting to get desperate for something new. I'm not really open to spending steel on the Bourgogne, as to me she's just an Alsace at tier 10 with a reload boost and from what I've seen, she has to make use of HE to get damage a lot more often than I really like from a BB," I'm a strong believer that BBs are meant to be shooting AP 99% of the time." The only other tier 10s I've heard of that are somewhere in the works would be the Ohio, Thunderer, and Slava. I think the Ohio is going to be an NTC reward, but unless I'll just be able to use my free xp to research the required amount of tech trees right away and be able to get the ship immediately, I don't consider that "on the horizon" so to speak. Not really sure what the acquisition method will be for the Thunderer? If she is going to be a 457mm conqueror that has good AP, that's something I can get behind. However, I've really not heard anything about her recently. Lastly, the Slava, which was out of these 3, the one I was looking forward to the most, was supposed to be an alternate to the Kremlin. However, she has been in the testing phase a lot longer than average, "at least seemingly." I'm starting to wonder if WG maybe scrapped her all together? Maybe too many sub 50%ers were whining and crying about her having accurate guns," you know, those guys that go full broadside in front of a BB in a CA, get dev struck, and then go on a tirade in chat about how the BB needs its accuracy nerfed." God forbid we get a new BB that hits thing at range, you know that thing battleships were designed to do? Anyway, I'm just wondering if any of those will be coming around soon, or if there is something in the works I've missed? Maybe since I shouldn't be spending every game getting chased around the map by rocket planes anymore, maybe I could start playing my DDs more again. Honestly though I'm just dying for a new BB right now!
  23. This might have been asked before but why do you have to pay money to convert the xp you earn on a ship that you already paid to use. I have 80k xp on my Lenin and I can't use it because I can't afford doubloons to convert it to free xp. Is there anyway to use that xp for free instead of using money?
  24. Granted, I don't have many tier 10s (I have one, Midway, which I refuse to take out until I have a better sense of the new CV controls), but I do have a decent number of tier 8s and 9s (and again, granted, I haven't touched PvP since March). Nevertheless, I feel like recently WG has given far too much focus on the high tiers (tier 8-10) and not enough focus on the middle or even lower tiers (tier 7-). I imagine there are reasons for this, but I must point out that so far: all clan battles up to the present have been tier 10 the last time a ship tier 7 and below could advance up to rank 1 in a proper ranked season (as opposed to ranked sprint) was in July 2017 (i.e. it's been almost 2 years now); everything else has been tier 8-10 (heck, even tier 8 and 9 ships don't have it too good either, since tier 9 only has had one season dedicated to it and tier 8 ships were locked out from the upper ranks in favor of tier 10 ships in recent seasons) the majority of the new armory/premium ships released or being planned for release are tier 8-10, and a number of them can only be earned through steel (and thus the catch-22 cycle is that one must have high tier ships to earn said steel) In addition, I do not believe I am the only one when I state that a) I do not enjoy being constantly forced to use high-tier ships and fight in the high-tier meta and b) I dislike the overall hemorrhaging of silver that comes with repeated high-tier battles. It's not as if high tier battles create instantly engaging battles between 2 competent teams either—potatoes crop up the high tiers too. I think when it gets to the point that rental ships have to be provided (and handicapped ships at that, given you can't put camouflages on them) that perhaps somewhere, somehow, there's a problem that needs fixing.
  25. Wargaming, I know that many of us would appreciate some hints as to when some of the premium ships are going to be released. For me, I’m specifically talking about the Leone. I know others are anticipating other ships that seem to be locked in WIP prison. If you respond to this inquiry, I would really appreciate it, as would many others.
