  1. Tirpitz v. Alabama

    Soooo I am planning to invest in some T8 premiums. I am very comfortable in the Bismarck but I found it to be somewhat limited in many situations I found the North Carolina to be amazing and did very well with her in ranked as well but not as comfortable as the Bismarck. As the Alabama and Tirpitz are practically premium versions of these two I couldn't decide on which one to pick. The main goal for the purchase is 'Credit grinding' + 'Captain retraining' , but for the German tree, I already have the Graf Spee. For Alabama I am planning to use it in ranked instead of the North Carolina. Any suggestions? p.s. planning to only buy one ship
  2. Good day all, With the recent additions of almost all existing premium ships being added to the Premium Shop store indefinitely, will there still be random bundle/bonus XP missions offered for these existing ships to be purchased? Or will these bonuses only be available to new releases moving forward? There are a couple ships in the shop I'm interested in picking up, but have held off till now out of hope of some discount sales with the XP bonus missions tacked on.
  3. Ship XP on Premium Ships

    Trying to use Ship XP to buy next tier ship, The ship XP is a premium ship of Tier VII and trying to purchase Tier VIII, have all previous tiers.Why can I not use the XP from Premium Tier VII to buy next in line Tier VIII ship? Thanks for the help
  4. I'm curious what the benefit is of exp with prem ships. I get how the exp will go to the commander, but the ship exp is what I'm most curious about. I'm WoT you can lock out so all the exp goes tho the crew instead of the ship (tank) - but that doesn't seem too be the case here, and since you can't upgrade modules with exp, what's the value of it? Is it just something you need to spend doubloons to unlock and use it as free exp?
  5. Soon, there will be Haida

    Hey Captains! Soon you will have the opportunity to acquire one of the most venerated ships in Canada, HMCS Haida. I recall last year receiving LOTS of feedback to get this ship into the game, in this sub-section of the forum particularly. @LittleWhiteMouse in particular was was extremely vocal about this ship. Thanks to talking to lots of colleagues at the development studio in St. Petersburg, lots of patience from @Ev1n_NA , and a lot of hard work from our historical research team, the ship will soon be in the game. It was an interesting journey to help make this ship happen, and I hope you all enjoy it when it does arrive!
  6. I am a dd main these days, but the new USN cruiser line has me starting to play USN cruisers again. I started serious play in WOWs in the St Lo (still LOVE that old lumbering beast), but when I got to the Phoenix and Omaha, I stopped playing cruisers because I was frustrated by how easy it was to delete the Tier IV and V USN cruisers as compared the the St. Lo. I switched to playing dds almost exclusively and have done well for the most part. I'm at Tier IX in the USN, and Tier VIII in the IJN, and Pan Asian lines (I even played at Tier X in the Gearing in the last Clan battles-yikes!). I use my Sims as a Captain trainer for my USN dds because she is a Premium ship. Now that I'm starting to play my Phoenix and Omaha again, I was wondering if I could use my Sims to do the same thing? At least 1/2 of the dd Captain skills are interchangeable in a cruiser but it's not a perfect fit. I'm trying to avoid spending $$ to redistribute the skill points when I move the Captain to the Sims and then doing the same thing when he gets moved back. My Omaha captain has 11 points. What mix of skills would make sense for BOTH the Sims and he Omaha as a happy medium? BTW - feel free to call me crazy if you think that this is a bad idea. I'm OK with grinding up the line with a single USN cruiser captain.
  7. I don't know about other players but from my point of view tier 1 to 4 ships are under used. They seem only played when player is grinding up a new line of ships. There is very few or no missions given the you need tier 1 to 4 ships for. Wargaming puts out mission where you can earn low tier ships but they don't get played because there is little to get most player to play low tier. Then there is the low tier premium ships that Wargaming sells that people go and buy but rarely play because low tier games are not what people play. I loved to play low tier tanks into World of Tanks and they made it worth while to play low tier in tanks, however I don't see the same in Warships. It is clear they actively want people to play tier 5 and up in Warships by the mission requires. I see the reasons why Wargaming does so but it does change my mind that they should make it more inviting to play low tiers. Have low tier only mission give extra Commander XP, flags, etc. This would equalize the player tier spread instead for have most everybody playing tiers 5-6-7. I looked for stats to back up my personal experience but could not find any.
  8. Premium ships

    Since the Asashio has come out, I was wondering some opinions, and as a new YT person, I thought I would want to do a small survey, and also by the way, I have trouble deciding to buy the loyang or tirpitz. Atago is kinda meh or I could save my doubloons. What do you think?
  9. I don't want to call this a proposal, but more of an idea. The concept is to introduce, not as a replacement for existing commanders or the existing commander system, but as a supplementary second type of commander, captains with certain restrictions. Linked and/or limited commanders would have one or more of the following characteristics: a) They could have a skill cap LESS than 19 points - on the other hand, they would begin to earn elite captain xp once reaching their skill cap; b) They could have their specialization hard coded to a specific ship; c) They could be undismissable from a specific ship - so in other words, that ship would only be playable with that commander. OK, so why would one want such a thing? Applications: 1) Enable the return of certain OP ships. Part of what makes OP premiums OP is the ship, of course, but it doesn't help that they are usually played with high skill captains. But what if WG brought Kamikaze, or Belfast, back to the shop - but newer owners had to buy them with an undissmissable captain capped at 9 points? Or Kutuzov with a 10 point captain (choose CE or IFHE, but not both)? A tradeoff of access and limitations. 2) Democratize the capacity to earn elite captain xp. I have the impression that Space Battles are really popular for players without 19-pt captains, and thus without a regular way to earn elite captain xp. Linked or limited commanders could create the possibility for WG to give away (via missions or campaigns) some elite xp earning potential to these players without completely negating the work more experienced players have put in to grind captains up. So imagine, for example, a campaign that yielded a Japanese/French/German/whatever captain capped at 9 points - he could be assigned anywhere, and would generate elite xp, but of course would have play disadvantages relative to a higher-skill commander. Or even a campaign that would yield a 19-point commander - but he would be hard coded to the Omaha, Emerald, or similar not-exactly-OP ship (if you want to go clubbing in those, be my guest)? Of course this would all have to be communicated somehow, but it seems to me that WG is already on a pathway of complexifying the simplicity of the commander system with legendary commanders and the like. What do you think?
  10. Hello Captains! What are your thoughts on Asashio, the upcoming IJN Tier VIII Destroyer with long range deepwater torpedos. The reason why I ask is that I get differing opinions on this potential ship one way or another. Be constructive, but also feel free to be candid. This won't prevent the ship from coming out, but I do love to hear all thoughts on a new Premium ship. Full disclosure, I LOVE this ship, and regular hunt Battleships in it. Let's hear what you have to say! (Note: If you don't like Premium Ships, then this isn't the thread for you. Move along. Don't be that guy!)
  11. To Buy or Not to Buy?

    Hi all, I recently opened a supercontainer containing some doubloons and now I have enough doubloons to actually buy the Graf Spee. I've been reading reviews that say it's a fairly difficult ship to master, and I'm thinking I should try playing it on the test server (if that's at all useful.) I'm considering buying it because honestly it's cool and why not, though I understand it may not actually be a good idea. Considering that I have 3.7k doubloons, should I save my money and buy a Scharnhorst or say a Tirp instead? I play everything including CVs (though only up the the Tier 6 Japanese CV right now, and I'm not very good,) and I find that every class has something to offer. Cruisers frustrate with poor armor, but their balance of firepower and maneuverability is lovely, likewise Battleships are great fun because who doesn't love big damage numbers, but of course RNG is frustrating. For DD's I'm no expert, as I've only played up to the Tier 7 German DD, and I'm actually enjoying it (though I understand I need to play more DDs to get a better feel for the class in general.) Really, is the Graf Spee still useful and relevant in the current meta? Or should I wait and get more doubloons and drop them on something else. I can tell you to look up my stats and recommend something based on them, and that I try to play mid-range/relatively conservatively just because I'm not always the best at aiming (but I do try to avoid the fault of sniping all the time, as that's not useful.) You all have my apologies for me rambling literally all over the place. Thank you for whatever advice and experience you can offer me. Have a good day all!
  12. Container Contents

    Regarding Container contents, is there a container choice that rewards port slots more than any other? Im trying to save doubloons for more important purchases ie: converting free exp, emergency captain re-training, possible ships. ect ect. Thanks for replies.
  13. 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.
  14. 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 :(
  15. 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.
  16. 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.......
  17. 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?
  18. Newer Poll, vote if you want.
  19. 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?
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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

  24. Premium Ships

  25. 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?
