Proposal to tweak Solo Warrior...

Once the patch hits, this achievement is going to be functionally impossible with a giant arrow pointing to where you are at all times.  So I propose we up the rewards.  10 Papa Papa flags is paltry.

 

For this soon to be impossible feat of cosmic alignment, achieving Solo Warrior should grant 1 year of Premium time, 10,000 gold and a Missouri.  After all, we should amply compensate the entire 3 people in the world that will manage this medal again before the heat death of the universe.

For this soon to be impossible feat of cosmic alignment, achieving Solo Warrior should grant 4 years of Premium time, 150,000 gold and a Missouri+Nikolai.  After all, we should amply compensate the entire 3 people in the world that will manage this medal again before the heat death of the universe.

Not quite fixed. Add the Gremyaschy and it will be truly fixed...

You're assuming one of the surviving reds will have RPF.

 

AFT, manual secs, CE, and other important T2-3 skills compete. From its description, RPF will be situationally useful simply because general direction of nearest enemy is not always useful info.

 

Plus it's laughable. Save for a map with lots of maneuvering room, I can usually guess where my opponents are. Doesn't give me info I don't already have from experience.

​Literally everything in this game, World of Warplanes, AND World of Tanks, plus every single game on Steam, plus you get to take the ACTUAL USS Missouri home and dock it in the seaport nearest your home, plus a pony.

 

Fixed.

Sshhh, we don't mention that one....

 

Though, I like the pony. Good idea.

I think it should award a Seawolf class submarine that can queue up for any tier.

 

You went just that bit too far, buddy. Unacceptable. It's all fun and games until someone mentions subs.

Oh look - another thread b1tching about RDF.

 

Oh look, another passive-aggressive post whining about people having an opinion.

Just think of it as semi-serious comedy. There's no reason that you have to see this thread as a bunch of people "b1ching". It's all in good spirit—and maybe you can join in!

Both times I have gotten solo warrior it wouldnt have mattered if any of the enemy had the new skill assuming any of those ships would have picked that skill anyway.

I received Solo Warrior today...  Honestly it was pretty much pure luck, and mostly my teams doing.   But we'd gotten way ahead in points, were able to kill all their destroyers and cruisers... and my little destroyer was able to grab a cap behind them and then run the clock out.   Invisifiring a Colorado just to annoy.

 

Honestly there wasn't a lot they could do, there was one point where I torped a Yorck from the side as I was sneaking around that maybe if he had RPF it wouldn't have worked.   But he seemed generally clueless as he didn't seem to realize that someone must have been there to spot him.

 

It'll change the game, no doubt.   We'll see.

You don't fix a purely luck-based achievement by rewarding it better. You fix it by reducing the luck factor, e.g. making it 1v3. But then some of the current holders of the achievement would get sort of upset. I don't see a good solution here.

A little too much hand-wringing while glancing at the sky waiting for it to fall from the OP. 

 

I've managed to get SW twice and RPF would not have helped the opposing team in either case. The first time (Omaha) I ran out the clock while hiding strategically keeping islands between myself and the enemy who was too far out of position to secure the kill. They knew right where I was, they just didn't have the time to flush me out. The second time (Tirpitz) I also ran out the clock while we were ahead on points and being in a battleship with all the stealth of a continent the last opponent (Fubuki) knew right where I was but couldn't take me on because I had a fair amount of health and he had gone to the furthest cap on Northern Lights to try and get the win instead of engaging me. RPF would have done nothing to change the outcome. 

 

It's an achievement that almost entirely comes down to luck, I mean the stars have to align for it to occur and generally your opponents have to make a lot of mistakes to make this happen. I don't see RPF rendering this impossible or dramatically reducing the chance of it happening.

I nearly got Solo Warrior on my Tirpitz 2 months ago, and it wasn't by hiding. I took on 4 ships at once (well 3, as the 4th died to a "it's Just a Flesh Wound"). Regardless, the nemeies knew where I was at all times, and I killed all three. The last kill was a ram, so ended in a draw, but I could've killed them all without it too if played a bit different.

 

THAT SAID, the only time I did get SW was on my Hatsu, and the enemy didn't know where I was. So you do have a point, but it's a bit faulty to call it "functionally impossible" to get.

I'd be okay with just all the premium ships have been released or will be released in the future.
