  1. Just bought a T10 Austin today with a lot of hard earned Steel, and I'm sad to say this ship is incredibly under powered compared to other ships of its genre. I'll compare it first with the Minotaur - 1. Mino has 13k more hit points 2. Mino has larger guns(152mm v. 127mm on Austin, although Mino has 2 less guns) 3. Mino has a 3.5 second reload v. Austin's 8 second reload (supposedly counter balanced by the Austin's 15 second reload booster that drops reload to 2 seconds briefly and can't be used again for 1:40+) 4. Mino is made of paper and easily damaged v. Austin is made of rice paper and is damaged by a stiff breeze for massive damage. Maybe they're both paper, but with 13k more hit points, Mino has the decided edge in survivability 5. Mino has smoke to hide in v. Austin has a prayer it can get behind. 6. Both have 10km torps with a small advantage in damage going to the Austin 7. Both have similar hydro 8. Both have excellent AA 9. Mino is ~1km more detectable range There is NOTHING about the Austin that makes it worth spending 29,000 hard earned Steel on. It's pathetic in comparison to other light cruisers in the game. The Austin is equivalent to a T8 Edinburgh in most respects (leaving ONLY the reload booster as an advantage while giving up smoke as the only real difference. This needs to be fixed so the people unfortunate enough to buy this wimp of a ship don't feel like they've wasted potentially YEARS worth of grinding to get 29,000 Steel. Sorry this is all bunched up and not formatted. My forum does not load properly and I'm viewing it in basic text.

    Steel sale

    Hi guys, I know that many will not like this, and I also know that WG did this a long time ago, but I also know that there are many of the old players who do not have much time to play, not everyone has the time to play or at CW or Ranked, WG with so many dumb containers they have, it should still sell some steel. This at least to be able to get boats that I am more than sure will put them there. which will be very difficult to obtain, I know that more than some do not like the idea because of the effort and blah blah blah, but come on, we don't all have the time. I read his opinions.
  3. I just managed to claw my way up to 20,250 steel on the day the coal/steel coupon refreshed, and it costs exactly that to get the Plymouth. It's been quite the climb, given that I haven't played any significant ranked and no Clan Battles at all since I got the Black, about 18 months ago (just before it was announced she was being pulled). It's all been done with dailies and snowflakes. I could get her right now. On the other hand, I recently bought the Tiger '59, which should at least temporarily sate my itch for a smoke-radar ship to hunt bots with. You see, a few weeks ago I watched THIS: ...and while I don't see eye to eye with PQ on many issues, I had to admit that he has a point. The major question I have to ask with respect to my French captains is... does the Bourgogne really do what it does that much better than the Jean Bart? (The fact that they are at different tiers is not as relevant to me as to others.) And do I need a premium Super-Alsace when I already have a premium Alsace, albeit in another nation (pan-Asian Wujing)? So now I'm going to do my best to sit on my hands until snowflake season in the hope of broadening my options. Substantially. Meanwhile, I know that if WG decides to yank the Plymouth, I can bite the bullet and get her if I really feel the itch.
  4. hello forumers and players of the WoWs community, I am nearing to having enough steel resources enough to purchase one of the ships for steel, I was originally gunning for the Austin but I then realised its a heavily gimped colbert which then had me confused on what to get now. things that can help you help me decide on what steel ship Playstyle: im more orientated to playing cruisers and Battleships out of the 4 soon to be 5 ship types, my playstyle is a passive-aggressive kiter/flanker, I excel most well in the french cruisers most notably the Henri IV with the lighthouse build where I would angle/kite away throwing shells at mostly BBs or bow in radar cruisers chaining up fires through im willing to move in during mid or late game and change my priority to hunting DDs. I do similar strategy in my french BBs too but I look for broadside targets with AP. With all french BBs and Cruisers if target is close and is expected to be spotted for a while I'll activate mbrb on angled ships if they damacon a fire and try and get another fire going or punish broadsides. French DDs I do them pretty well especially in ranked than randoms. What I do when I boot up the WoWs client: usually im mostly in a 2 man division playing at tiers 5 and operations as break from the high tiers and tier 8 and 10 where we run our favourite ships. the ships I run at these tiers are the following, tier 5: Sirocco Operations: Ark Royal, Prinz Eitel Friedrich, Dunkerque, Agile, Strasbourg, Nelson and Atlanta(sometimes) tier 8: Bayard, Le Terrible tier 10: Colbert, Henri IV other notes: - me and my divmate would do a disgusting Mino Colbert meme divison, its my favourite thing to do in ships. - I have Bourgogne already If you read up to here, thank you! I look forward to reading your suggestions and recommendation of what steel ship is best for me within the next few days, or at least watch the vote poll number spew up.
  5. This Holiday Update has a massive amount of content. I run through the details of the opportunities in this update to help you decide how to get the most from your gaming time this season. I hope this helps!

    Musashi coming back?

    Are they ever gonna bring back the Musashi as a steel, coal, or premium shop ship? I lowkey wanna get it Also, what coal and steel ships do you guys think is gonna come in the future? I hoping for the California to come soon but last I heard the ship isn’t very good anymore
  7. I don't know if this has been address probably already but I don't like the way you get steel this season. More of a headache and takes the fun out of CBs. What is everyone else's thoughts on the season.
  8. I'm rather confused why we got another Steel battleship when you can only use one per team. I feel that another Steel cruiser would have been far more in demand. With that in mind, my suggestion is a Goliath variant. Options for this variant could be: Radar(The Goliath is the only heavy line to not mirror the radar of the light line). An additional heal and/or separation between the AA and hydro consumable. I know the Goliath was tested and several versions ended nerfed as being too powerful but perhaps a steel version could fit the bill to justify that bit of power-creep. I don't expect most people to be behind a Steel version of the Goliath, but there has to be support for more steel cruisers. Feel free to add your suggestions here.

    Other way to earn "steel"

    I'm wondering is there is another way to earn "steel" resources instead of the Clan Wars. In my case, I'm not always can connect in time with my clan mates because my job or my free time. So... Besides "Clan Wars", is there is any other way to earn "steel"? Thank you for answering.
  10. I've been watching the resource ships and have been pondering something. Why can't we get a CV coal ship premium? It would be nice to see something like this added to the armory for people to work for! Please do take it into consideration and give us CV mains something to work for as well.
  11. I have a suggestion about earning steel. So since everyone basically says you lose credits in playing Tier X and there is basically no point unless you run a camo; why don't you award 10 steel per win for playing a Tier X. Basically that is the trade off, lose credits but you earn steel, at an incredibly slow pace. I am assuming most people don't play clan battles, and that is where you earn the chunk of steel. So players really don't get the opportunity to earn steel ships unless you play ranked; ranked is not always available, and the majority of people can't even get passed rank 5. I would love to play the steel ships but I don't think I really ever since getting steel is hard. Just a suggestion for those who don't have time for clan wars. In addition, I guess since there are bots in the game, award the 10 steel to the top 7 players on the winning team, just for extra measure. @Hapa_FodderI really hope this is something you guys will consider. It will give an extra reason for players to actually grind to tier X besides research Bureau. I would love you guys if you did implement something like this.

    Yashima or Stalingrad?

    So I found out today, via no zoup for you's video, that Yashima will be released as a steel ship. Obviously, I don't know how much she will cost at the moment. I do know however, that right now, in order to get the Stalingrad next patch, all I would have to do is hit rank 6 in ranked to get the 21k steel I would need "using my coupon." I've wanted the Stalingrad for awhile now, but opted to get the Bourgogne first, which I did three months ago since I primarily play BBs. Part of me wants to stick true to my original goal of getting the Stalingrad next. However, I've long wanted a super yamato class in the game, so part of me wants to work towards the Yashima instead. The Stalingrad has proven herself to just about everyone who owns her " my clanmates who own her included," that she is more than worth the investment, and they have all assured me I wouldn't regret adding the "balancedgrad" to my port. Yashima on the other hand is just a Yamato with fewer, albeit larger guns. More importantly 510mm doesn't hit any meaningful overmatch threshold in the game and you deal with a painful reload on 6 guns. Also, not enough players have gotten to sail her yet to determine if she is worth the investment or not. Despite all this, I'm still having trouble deciding. Any thoughts?
  13. Usually at the end of Christmas Events, WG has put out numbers like the total amount of coal, steel, presents, and premium ships gained through directives. I haven't seen any of this yet and it's coming up on a week since the new patch dropped. Any idea what the holdup is? I'm really curious to see how the results this year compares to previous years (especially the number of Gorizias and Puerto Ricos obtained via directives).
  14. Since the new set of resource/doubloon coupons are out, wondering what ships would be the best With coal I'm still stuck in the middle as if I should get the Thunderer or Georgia first. I already have Jean Bert and Smolensk For steel, is the flint a good enough ship to use or should I should wait to get more steel for a ship like the neustrashimy. I already have the Stalingrad as my first steel ship. Also what would be a good doubloon ship for 6500 that I can use the coupon on?
  15. So... someone at WG lost their mind multiplied the directive requirements by 10 or they don't want you to complete it; because the directives are insane, the directive number 7 is super insane and someone did the math and to complete Puerto Rico freely you'll need to complete every directive within 12 hours because remember of the 32 days of the event you will have 17-4 days of per minute construction points gain and after that you will need to pay points or cash to complete it..... so good luck?

    Hayate

    So it looks like if we reach 35k as a community, we can decide what currency Hayate will be, what would you pick? Coal? Steel? FEXP? Research points?
  17. 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.
  18. I was on the fence for playing on in ranked after I was stuck at rank 9. But since I would miss the Flint by 200 steel I gave it a try. The last battle not only got me to rank 8, I also got the missing 150 coal, from the daily mission, for the Smolensk. One battle, winning the two egg twins. And now some songs for the rest of the day And ofc for reaching finally the Flint

    USS Flint worth a pick up?

    Hey All! I got a decent amount of steel, but am now stuck as to what to get with it... the options Im looking at is either the Flint, or the Nuestrashimy. I have an Atlanta, and have a CRAZY amount of games played in it. I love the ship to death, along with worcester. However i've been told that the flint isn't really worth getting if I have a Atlanta already. I do love my grozovoi, so hence why im looking at the shimy. However I have no where near the same amount of fun and games played in the Atlanta. Can someone give me some good info to make my decision?
  20. Has anyone received steel/coal rewards for cross server CB testing? cheers
  21. I know they were around for the release of the Cadenza special but if the High School Fleet is getting a season two then why not make the ARP ships available again? I started after the event for them ended which was the main reason i had started playing so for them to be completely out on availability had me bummed out. Put in Japanese cruisers since a fair amount are Japanese cruisers.

    Which steel ship?

    I have enough steel to get USS Black today. Would like your opinions wherever I should get it or save for Stalingrad or Bourgogne.
  23. This ship is great fun. I'm not even a BB player, but I feel right at home in it. Imagine a 38 knot Hinden with more HP disguised as a Battleship. The disguise makes it so the 'unaware' players think you aren't going to reload in 10s with booster and try to turn away from you, exposing that tender citadel. Slap on a propulsion mod and play like a Dunkerque, but instead your ship is actually good. If you think the HP is just too low for a BB, think again. A nice and low citadel shaped hindenish and you can sidescrape and troll with your propulsion, you wont be missing that HP. If you happen to find yourself with some steel, do yourself a favor and skip that boringgrad. Buy yourself a shiny Bourgape and terrorize the randoms. Do your friends a favor and tell them the good news too.
  24. https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/public-test/bulletin-0712/ Our latest issue of the Developer Bulletin is here to give you an overview of what you can expect. The forthcoming update kicks off our New Year celebrations, and is set to bring you plenty of cool stuff in the run up to 2019! With Update 0.7.12 you get "Snowflakes", an event called "In the Name of His Highness", a "Belle Époque" collection, two new campaigns, and much more! IMPORTANT! Because the update is still being tested, the information in this Bulletin is tentative and reflects the state of game development at the time of its publication. Changes and new features may be removed entirely or implemented differently by the time it goes live. Screenshots, specific values of certain characteristics, and details of in-game mechanics will not necessarily be accurate after the release of the update. In the Name of His Highness! ● The "Belle Époque" Collection ● The "Mighty Prinz" Campaign ● The "Steel Monsters" Campaign ● Snowflakes! ● Ranked Sprint ● Warships Premium Account ● Balance ● Other Changes In the Name of His Highness! The incoming update welcomes you with an in-game event called "In the Name of His Highness!" Its focus is the glorious epoch when the armor-plated ships of the early 20th century ruled the seas. Expect the rules of this five-week event to be similar to the rules of the "Royal Navy" campaign. The event contains one Stage and four Directives scheduled to arrive once per week, each of which contains 10 to 11 Combat Missions. While the fifth week won’t offer a new Directive, you'll be able to continue with those already made available. Each completed Directive or Combat Mission brings rewards including: camouflage patterns, signals, New Year containers and Steel. The successful completion of the fourth Directive brings you the brand new German Premium Tier VI battleship—Prinz Eitel Friedrich! Accomplish all Directives of the Stage and fight for a place of honor in the updated Hall of Fame. Please note: During the Public Test, the conditions of the Event may differ from its final version. For example, by completing the first Directive of the "In the Name of His Highness!" event you get Japanese Tier VI destroyer Shinonome. The ship is a key to the subsequent missions of the Public Test. The "Belle Époque" Collection New Year containers issued for accomplishing Combat Missions and Directives bring you items from the "Belle Époque" collection. The collection will provide the rich background of the glory days of the armor-plated warships of the early 20th century. It comprises Coats of Arms, mail stamps, New Year cards, and elements of the exterior decor of ships. The new collection consists of 16 elements, thematically divided into 4 sections. Elements of the collection can be obtained from the relevant dedicated containers onl The reward for completing the collection includes a commemorative flag, Secret Santa container and Pickelhelm patch. The "Mighty Prinz" Campaign By a good New Year's tradition, we'll continue partying by rolling out a new temporary campaign that will be available for owners of battleship Prinz Eitel Friedrich. As you progress through the campaign, you'll get containers from the New Year's "Belle Époque" collection. The final missions of the campaign will bring you researchable Tier VI ships with beautiful New Year-themed camouflages. Your ultimate reward for accomplishing the entire campaign will be a permanent camouflage for Prinz Eitel Friedrich. During the Public Test, the first mission can only be completed with Shinonome. The "Steel Monsters" Campaign The second campaign is dedicated to the construction of the heavily armored ships from the beginning of the 20th century. It will be available for purchase through the Premium Shop. This campaign is a great way to stock up on camo, signals, Secret Santa containers and Steel—a valuable resource for use in the Arsenal. Access to the campaign will open during the second round of the Public Test, once you have completed the "Mighty Prinz" campaign. Please note that during the Public Test it will be noticeably easier to pass the new campaign when compared to the effort that will be required once it moves to the live servers. Also, please bear in mind that the conditions of various tasks and the attached rewards for completing them, may differ substantially. Snowflakes! New Year: a time of miracles! And what could be more perfect for the New Year's festivities than a gift that can make you smile? That's where “Snowflakes” comes into play! It’s a new festive special event that’s set to last throughout Update 0.7.12. You are probably well aware by now that your first win of the day with each ship scores an XP bonus, right? “Snowflakes” is a bonus you can claim the same way, but only once per update. To knock a Snowflake off a ship, you need to win a battle of any type, except for Clan and Training Battles. The reward for knocking them off is resources for use in the Arsenal: Coal and Steel. During the Public Test, a victorious battle with Tier VI-VII ships brings you Coal while ships of Tier VIII-X will receive Steel. We understand that Steel is a valuable resource that is "mined" in Clan and Ranked Battles in order to get rare ships. But since adding it to the game, we have received many requests to make it more accessible, as not all players have the opportunity to play in the competitive modes efficiently enough or on a regular basis. The events we mentioned above are designed to fire up the New Year celebrations and give you a chance to obtain valuable rewards—and Steel! However, it doesn't mean we are planning to offer such specials on a regular basis. Please note that the attached rewards and conditions for "collected Snowflakes" during the Public Test may differ substantially compared to the live servers. Ranked Sprint Ranked Sprint is back! We are grateful to your for you participation in the first seasons, and we’re happy to announce that we have two more for you! This time, two teams will clash against each other in a 5x5 (7x7) format with Tier VI ships. As usual, a total of 10 ranks will be split across two leagues: the first spanning Rank 10 through Rank 6, and the second from Rank 5 through Rank 1. Divisions consisting of maximum two players will be allowed. Show 'em what you've got! Join efforts with friends—and rule the seas! Warships Premium Account We're happy to launch a brand new feature: Warships Premium Account. It gives you an extra 15% experience compared to the pre-existing Premium Account (PA), but it’s exclusively for World of Warships. Despite the increased XP yield, the cost of the Warships PA is equal to the cost of the general PA. At the end of a battle, the Premium Account with the highest modifier will be used to calculate your XP bonus. When the Warships PA is added, players with the active general PA will also get the Warships PA for the same duration. They will be able to try the new feature out at no extra charge. This feature has been developed in mind for those players who mainly play World of Warships and prefer to receive an increased bonus in one game in exchange for the removal of bonuses in others. Balance In the upcoming version we will buff the characteristics of researchable US battleships from tier III to IX: they will receive decreased rudder shift time and increased efficiency of their Repair Party. The consumable will now restore 0,66% HP per second. The tier IX German battleship Friedrich der Große will also get an increase to the effectiveness of her secondary and main battery guns: the 105-mm secondary guns will now penetrate 26-mm armor, while the reload time of 406-mm and 420-mm guns will be decreased down to 26 and 29 seconds respectively. The gameplay of Japanese battleships Myogi (tier IV) and Izumo (tier IX) will become more comfortable in Update 0.7.12 due to an increase in armor penetration of their AP shells, while the main guns on Myogi will receive a buff to their reload time - it will be decreased down to 28 seconds. Other Changes We changed the height and location of islands of the Okinawa map, while keeping the overall landscape of the offshore area unchanged. This is designed to make the map more comfortable for ships of all types. From Update 0.7.12, your progress in the Service Record will be based on the number of battles played rather than on the amount of XP earned. This will help to make Service Record progression easier to pick up for novice players. In the Arsenal, you will now also be able to exchange doubloons for various in-game goodies. During the Public Test, the "Ships" section will offer you all Tier X ships. Play several battles of any type, earn the required amount of resources, and exchange them for any top-tier ship you like! Tier X's will be available in the Arsenal for the duration of the Public test only! On the live server, the choice of ships in the Arsenal will be different. TLDR regarding Steel and other hijinks (thanks mr Lovebote for pointing it out); Please note that during the Public Test it will be noticeably easier to pass the new campaign when compared to the effort that will be required once it moves to the live servers. Also, please bear in mind that the conditions of various tasks and the attached rewards for completing them, may differ substantially. To knock a Snowflake off a ship, you need to win a battle of any type, except for Clan and Training Battles. The reward for knocking them off is resources for use in the Arsenal: Coal and Steel. During the Public Test, a victorious battle with Tier VI-VII ships brings you Coal while ships of Tier VIII-X will receive Steel.

Please note that the attached rewards and conditions for "collected Snowflakes" during the Public Test may differ substantially compared to the live servers. In the Arsenal, you will now also be able to exchange doubloons for various in-game goodies. I'm curious to see whether the "leak" will be confirmed by the amounts of Steel you will be able to earn on PTS, quite a few people were saying this.
  25. Hello i am still new here and these are my thoughts about the new economy system: My instincts are telling me that something isn't right with the Steel/Coal economy. See at the start "nobody" had steel or coal but at least you could get it on containers(supercontainers) i made this calculations if you get 2 coal containers and complete the first daily mission you get a minimum of 1000 coal so if you play every day you will get a minimum of 30000 coal per month. now lets say that you want a ship lets say the Musashi priced at 180000 coal; you can add a coupon and reduce the price to 120000 coal but that's at least 4 months of grind and thats a lot of grind now lets think about coal and pricing at the most in one day if you get very lucky you can get at a maximum 4000 coal so thats good but almost impossible of getting every day for 30 days straight. Now about coal ships pricing... One could say that their prices are very much in line with the regular ships: Musashi 180000 coal - Izumo 178000 xp Salem 240000 coal - Des Moines 237500 xp Black 14000 Steel/140000 coal(converted) - Fletcher 158000 xp these prices are about right until now. from now on we should see prices like these: Jean Bart 226000 coal - Alsace 190000 xp Bourgogne 30000 steel/ 300000 coal (converted) - Republique 260000 xp Stalingrad 28000 steel/ 280000 coal (converted) - Moskva 235000 xp Because before we had artificial scarcity and now people are starting to retain some coal, and these prices will continue to go up and yes i know you cant convert coal into steel (yet(they introduced 3 new rare metal categories, but for what you might ask...... hum? )) i do think that they will allow us to convert doubloons into steel rather than coal into steel but for that they would need to get their pricing right (and destroy/reprice the current grind shenanigans for coal and remove some ships cuz they would be to cheap for us to buy). lets discuss it below
