  1. Not here to start any flame wars, get into politics or be judgemental of anyone. Just saw this and am wondering how it affects all of Wargaming titles, as well as what happens with Lesta and WoWs specifically. This is coming from the official LinkedIn page of Wargaming (and their own portal, as updated by a fellow forumer below), so no rumors, that's as legit as it gets. Quote (and sources) https://www.linkedin.com/posts/wargaming-net_wargaming-announces-decision-to-leave-russia-activity-6916701766524813312-c3ec/ https://www.stockwatch.com.cy/en/article/emporika-nea/wargaming-announces-decision-leave-russia-and-belarus https://wargaming.com/en/news/business-operations-worldwide/
  2. People may be asking, how is Wargaming capable of attracting players to the game, even when there is an increasing number of controversies, monetization and players (especially veteran ones) leaving the game? Do they: A)Start an effort to rebalance the game, make an effort at introducing content like maps, Scenarios, modes (remember the Axis vs Allies mode?) or just addressing bugs affecting the game for a number of patches? B)Try to solve their communication issues, both internally within the company and externally with the community? Try to get more interaction and develop a more transparent and honest image? C)Pay you to shill Wargaming products to your readers/viewers? If you picked C, the newly announced WoWs Affiliate Program has just been announced and might just be what you need. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXgihQnEpl0 Now you can turn your hobby into money by promoting WG products, as the sleek guy in a suit said on the video, the average monthly reward for a partner is 3000$!11!1!!!!!!

    WG gets ZERO credit

    I am actually shocked, to be honest. WG addressed that it wants to fix dead eye.. nothing. May I remind you a hundred other companies don't even respond to the player base or even continue to update a game after even a year? WG tries a new commander rework to provide fresh new material... rage. WG releases new ships to keep fresh new material coming out..... RAGE! WG TRYING TO MAKE MONEY!! (Gotta keep the lights on somehow sigh). WG comes out with Brawl shortly after the complaints that brawling is dead.... RAGE. I could go on. So much hate for a company that I can find several reasons why the hate is not warranted. I know they could do better in some areas. But what I've been reading and hearing from the crowd that complains, is a great deal exaggerated. How do you demand instant change in a game so large with a scheduling matrix? Could you imagine being the company and seeing all the bad from some of its player base? Why would you have any motivation? Just some thoughts.
  4. Long long ago, WoWP had whiners, just like we do. In fact, they were even more toxic than WOT whiners, possibly because of the elevated oxygen levels. And these whiners whined about EVERYTHING. They cried about bomber turrets, they wawaed about GAA armor, they moped about matchmaker. And what did WG do? Fix, of course! After all, the requests seemed perfectly reasonable... to the whiners. They were the only ones who benefited. And finally, it cumulated into the Matchmaker fix. Now, I'm not saying the MM update was BAD, no, it was pretty good, actually. It's just that the cost--killing the game--- was a little too much, and adding bots didn't really help because most of the whiners already left for wot. The warplanes community staggered on, slowly gaining traction, but we will probably never beat wot. One wonders how WOT can still be so popular after 50% of the population claims they uninstalled from cash grabs every patch.
  5. Being a big fan of Jingles......
  6. Since this week/cycle I have horrible disp on my ships, particularly Nurnberg. Just when Wg will be capable of actually fixing the game instead of shoveling down on our throat this crap called skill re....?!? Btw "enjoy" another bug added to the endless existing ones...
  7. As the title says..... To be honest....when I saw In the title "+ Announcement" I knew that,..,, it will be something along those lines.
  8. assuming the transformers collaboration is good and makes money. WG should have the next one be GI Joe, based on the 80s cartoon. With commanders like commander cobra, destro, Duke, and another commander maybe flint, scarlet, or lady j, or the shipwreck and his parrot. A COBRA flag for ships too. @Hapa_Fodder Catchphrases- Yo Joe, COBRA!!!, Retreat Save your command (cobra commander). What is everyone else's thoughts?
  9. So I posted earlier about how terrible Defense of Naval Station is and some agreed, other recommend hoperations, but i fill while hoperation is great, the majority of people dont want to go to a separate channel just div up for an op. The only reasonable at least for the player base is the have it removed or reworked. I can say at least in my opinion if naval station was removed, very little people would complain WG because it is that terrible. These are from a match I just finished with zero stars yet still completed. Some thing at needs to be done, we the player base know you can make a op unavaible -(cough)-ugh hemm- narai unavaible, just remove the op and many to some op players would be happy. If you like statiscial data WG, look at the win ratios, and amounted played for this op compared to ageis, raptor, whale, and narai and your data will show it. @Hapa_Fodder

    Operations Reworks/Unavailable

    I feel that the common senses is that defense of Naval Station is the worst of then all. If not fun, the carry potential is abysmal, and the win rate is low for randoms. Out of all the ops that, ultimate Frontier and defense of Naval Station are the worst because you are defending . WG forgot about money for just about three months and redo your ops. An leave Narai alone
  11. The mad lads did it again in the Cruiser Split() you'll lose the current T10 CA Moskva (and if you have the Type 20 you'll lose also 5k doubs) you'll have to grind T10 CL AL. Nevsky(but that was a given) and also you won't get T10 CA Petropavlovsk and on top of that you'll need to research T8 Tallin and T9 Riga to recover the ship they've stolen from you... Let that sink in. Now what they should have done is give us T10 CA Petropavlosvsk with the perma if you had the perma for T10 CA Moskva (like they did for Cleveland on the American Split) and the same for T5 CL Kirov and T5 CL Kotovsky. Edit: So to sum it all up we lose a ship that afterward we could get for free(coal); meaning grinding it was pointless in the first place(since we'll have to do it again) and for those who invested in the game and have spent 5k in the Type 20 they get to keep the camo(while others get it for free). Edit 2: Some people said in the comments below that they wouldn't give you a brand new ship(so i present this image from the American Split also addressing the camo problem). Edit 3: People seam to have a hard time looking(pictures) or reading so i will make it clearer: In the US Cruiser split you had: Before the split: You had US Cruiser T9 Baltimore with her perma camo(Occupying the T9 spot in the tech tree silver line) After the split: You had a stock T8 Baltimore with her perma camo and an brand new 8 point Capt and You had a T9 Buffalo (a brand new ship occupying the same spot that you had with the T9 Baltimore before) with her perma camo; all commanders, upgrades and XP earned transferred to her(from T9 Baltimore) and If you had a duplicated camo WG would give you a refund in Doubloons. In the USSR Cruiser split you "had"(will happen in 0.9.5 according to WG): Before the split: You had USSR Cruiser T10 Moskva (Occupying the T10 spot in the tech tree silver line) with her perma camo the Type 20(for those who bought it) After the split: You get Special USSR Heavy Cruiser T10 Moskva(that should cost ~240k coal and will be available in the Arsenal) with her perma camo as all Premium and or Special ships have. You lose the Ship Occupying the T10 spot in the tech tree silver line(Now a Light Cruiser spot) although according to WG if you reset the line your RP gets applied to T10 Nevsky(so we should get Nevsky) Those who bought the Type 20 perma camo for Moskva(and didn't have a time machine to know about the split and this mess) lose 5k doubloons You get to grind the Ship Occupying the T10 spot in the tech tree silver line again although if you had Moskva (and didn't reset the line) you already had it researched (I already expected this) If you want to have an T10 USSR Heavy Cruiser in the tech tree silver line like Moskva was before. You get to grind the from T7 Shchors to T8 Tallin to T9 Riga to T10 Petropavlovsk Since who Researched T10 Moskva but have not bought her will still get her as an Special Ship those who have her in the port will lose 19,500,000 credits and about 7,000,000 in upgrades(cuz of upgrade duplication done before) WG didn't said nothing about in-game refunds. Edit 4: To sum it all up after the USSR Cruiser split you get: Special USSR Heavy Cruiser T10 Moskva with her perma camo as all Premium and or Special ships have. You lose 19,500,000 credits(Moskva credit price) If you bought the Type 20 Perma camo for Moskva you lose 5k Doubloons Since you are not getting T10 Al. Nevsky in return for the removal of the Moskva from the main line you'll lose around 19,500,000 credits and about 7,000,000 in upgrades plus the T9 DM. Donskoi grind.
  12. I have keep my eye on what wg has been doing, and I don't feel it is healthy for the NA community to have to pay a crap ton of money to have access to early acess ships like t5-6 which are what a free player would hope to get. I would rather WG go back to dropping the missions in the creates like they used to and have the permanent camos for the tokens. To me this is just another FU... Middle finger (Cash Grab) at the NA community and as whole, after the whole pureto Rico debacle and 2019 being a terrible year. I don't know if this is just me or do other players share my feelings.
  13. You know, I have yet to meet a player that has told me, "you know what, I think the unique upgrades should be moved to the research bureau, yep that sounds like a good idea." *Bias ends here* Obviously WG wants to add extra incentive to the replayability of the tech tree ships, it's the reason the bureau exists in the first place. However by moving the unique upgrades they are also removing useful "end game" content for a lot of players, players that want nothing to do with the research bureau. (Me included) So to compensate for this, the assignments to obtain the unique upgrades should stay, and instead reward the permanent camouflage for the appropriate ship. Compensation for those who have already earned/purchased the equivalent permanent camouflage will likely be given in the form of credits. On a side note, it's my understanding tht WG currently plans to do nothing in regards to retain the unique assignments or replace them with something else. This is a good opportunity for you WG. Thanks for reading.

    pr grind

    can we all agree that the pr grind should not happen again
  16. 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?
  17. 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

    CV can be balanced (EASY)

    You cant think about CV the way they are now or were. Forget about them....clear your mind..... Ok lets think about the basics. A "BB,DD,CA,CL" player in the game = you alone, you have your ship and your commander. Your ship gets destroyed you go back to port. Copying the basics above lets introduce "CV" A "CV" player in the game = you alone, you have your plane and your pilot. The CV itself is an invulnerable launch pad. The player can move the CV or set course, return to it to repair/re-arm ect. Your plane gets destroyed you go back to port. CV cannot ram or cap, lol. CV are a "persona" that have been allowed into the equation of balance, which is not possible when following the original basic equation of balance. Which is one commander operating one vessel. As history show us , it is the pilot and their aircraft that created dominance in naval battles not the CV. This change in dominance was made possible according to the pilots skill to use their aircraft's speed, agility, firepower and free range of motion ect. In the game, the pilots dominance is certainly achievable, can finally be accepted and respected, as long as it is learned and earned within the same original basic balance guidelines set for all commanders. Hopfully WG will spend the money and do it right before their competitors beat them too it.

    Armory Ships

    Boomers vs Try Hard

    Boomers in game: Dont initiate, reinforce or spot with ships they use that are designed just for this. Generally lackadaisical gameplay only aggressive when the tryhards, despite their passive teammates, have managed to turn the odds but not just by a little, oh no, the boomers will stay passive until the tryhards have assured them favorable odds of victory. Boomers on the forum: They own the salt mines in Canada If Anyone presents an idea that will change anything in game in the slightest they are instantly flamed. They think they are smarter than the rest of the gamer community. Yet they are past grown men that still play video games. So that in and of itself makes them equally as dumbazz as the rest of us. My message is this. Boomers tryharder.
  22. This week Wargaming has proven that it will in fact meddle in Clan Politics and go as far to set a dangerous precedent that all Clans should be aware of. I will keep it as brief as I can: I am the leader of KnightWolf Armada [KWA] and a few months ago we began having members of 78th Main Fleet migrating to our Clan. They informed me that 78th struggled to get enough people on for clan battles and wanted to join a clan that consistently fielded two teams. The leader of 78th at the time decided to leave the game entirely and handed over command of all 78th clans to his second-in-command at the time. This new leader of 78th decided that he didn’t want to rebuild a dying clan and instead approached me with an offer: I would have control of 78th Main Fleet to be remade into KWB, a second clan for our casual members, and he would join KWA. He didn’t want to abandon and screw over the remaining casual members of 78th so I offered to help them restructure and once they were back into the swing of things we would be allies. Fast forward to this week, the week where we were going to begin the process of restructuring and moving members where they would have the best Clan to call home. Well, hit the brakes! The old leader of 78th returns, and instead of contacting me like his second-in-command told him to he goes to Wargaming and tells them a lie about his account being hacked. They remove my alternate account from the clan entirely and impose him as leader. When I was informed of this, I brought together all the documentation I had to show that WG had made a mistake. This includes: screenshots of the conversation where he openly said he was leaving the game for good and giving his second-in-command full authority to do what he thinks is best, and citing Wargaming’s rules that state if you leave a clan you started, you are forfeiting ownership of the Clan, as well as when you share account information you are putting yourself at risk, and additionally WG’s policy of not interfering with Clan Politics. With this evidence is should be clear that I should regain control of 78th Main Fleet as he knew what he was doing when he did it and then lied to strip control away from me and have it given to him. Wargaming apparently didn’t think so. Even going so far to cite the rules that they themselves are breaking with this decision as why they can’t do anything. This is absolutely ridiculous! We did nothing wrong and WG is punishing me and my clanmates by siding with a person who did break the rules! Going even further, this decision sets a dangerous precedent for all Clans. If a clan leader leaves a clan that he started, he then at any time can create a ticket and easily take control of that clan without the consent of the existing leader or the members of the clan. How many clans out there could this dramatically screw over? All because by doing this WG is directly getting involved in Clan Politics! As a Clan Leader I observe that it is my responsibility to maintain a community that encourages fun, competitive spirit, and an environment that makes their experience as enjoyable as it can be. My members do not serve me, I serve them. I would be remiss in my duties if I didn’t do all I can to correct this injustice and make sure WG fixes this issue and doesn’t make this mistake again. Below is my correspondence with WG in an attempt to resolve the issue. For privacy reasons I have decided not to include the evidence of the guy willingly relinquishing control of 78th, however, it was sent to WG.

    If I could design my mino it would be something like this.... muhahahaha.....muh...muhahahahahah kill youzzz!!!
  24. Just curious since quite a few streamers (from EU) I watch will be attending a CC summit organized by WG in Moscow. Does anybody know if there will be any NA CCs attending as well? Might be a good opportunity to at least communicate some of the issues we see constantly on the forums (and I can imagine on Reddit too).
