I already miss the chance to get the 250 signal supercontainers. What was the reason for removing those?

Seconded!

 

Also curious as to why Try Your Luck flags were reduced from 5 to 4.

 

I was unable to load the Inventory screen today; just got the spinning gear for awhile before I got tired of waiting and hit Esc to get back to the port screen.

 

I like the option to sell unwanted flags/consumables/camo.

 

Regarding the new upgrades: I like the options, but I don't like finding them in my boxes. I think a stronger implementation would have been to restrict their award to performance in Ranked and/or to make them rewards for campaigns/missions that mirror the flavor of the upgrade. This way players who wanted to use them still could, but players who have no use for them wouldn't have their container drops devalued.

 

Edit to add: Balance changes look good on paper, except for the flooding changes which seem a bit harsh toward DD/CV players. Why not similar changes to fire? I die more, and lose more HP, to HE spam than to well-timed torps causing flooding that I can't repair.

Yeah, this is a good question.

 

While some of the flags weren't as exciting to get in a SC drop, I personally loved the fact I had a chance to score 250 Sierra Mikes in a SC. Those flags are darn difficult to come by via normal play. (and that's not to even mention the 100 dragon flags you could get from a SC)

I'm not looking forward to getting a ship upgrade module that I can purchase with credits already in a Super Container. 

Super Containers are rare enough, now I get the chance of a ship module I'll never use and will most likely sale. 

I used to complain about getting 250 India X-Ray flags which aren't useful for me. Now I'll never see 250 Papa Papa flags just a ship upgrade I don't need. 

Its also sad that the rewards for Rank levels have been changed from useful stuff like Signals and Free Xp to these new ship modules.

Did anyone else not actually receive the rewards for service level 14? The profile tab has the "issued" stamp over the rewards container icon, but they did not show up in my inventory or through the consumable selection menu. On the plus side though, I love that DM's reload time was shortened, and I like being able to sell stuff in inventory

The Inventory needs a "Sell All" option or at least a "Mass Sale" option that allows you to sell multiple things of different types at once.  I understand this is probably not going to used very often outside of the initial mass sell-off of modules after this update, but it can't be that hard to program.

First impressions - 

  • Containers - lower flag count - BAD IDEA - have only had two Super Containers in 250 drops so that is not a big deal with the 250 flag drop being stopped for me - never had them - the change to the number of flags in regular container drops is puzzling - I do not see a valid reason for dropping that count.  These flags are useful but really do not cost anything to WG - the number you get in the containers would not impact the sales through the Premium Shop as you do not accumulate that many from the container drops
  • Inventory - GREAT IDEA - this is an aspect I really enjoy having - similar to WoT - can now sell modules which I do not use - allows me to keep modules which I may switch in and out such as torps and certain guns
  • Ship Exterior Changes - GREAT IDEA - well done - like the look of my Kamikaze, Funjin, Texas, Arizona and Dunkerque even more - well done
  • Balance Corrections - Reload - THANK YOU - played my New Orleans today - may go back to that grind - still needs love but better now with the reduced reload
  • Balance Corrections - Flooding - THIS IS A DISASTER for Tier X - the battles are already out of whack in terms of torp spamming and BBs playing sooo passively - this will make a bad situation even worse - expect to see WoWS Camp Fest 2017 now featured in your tTer X battles

.

As with anything, these are my first impressions which may change as I play more battles under this patch

I'm not really a fan of the new dynamic music tracks in-game.

 

It's too quiet after first contact if smoke screens go up and targets remain unspotted. It's also too quiet after you die and are spectating the match. There's no suspense or epic feeling(from the music) if you're in a slow ship that struggles to keep with the group or stay close enough to keep your guns firing the whole time. And, the changes feel way too jarring. You get a burst of intense music when you fire your guns, but if there aren't a lot of targets around or they go unspotted, the music settles within a battleships reload time. It just doesn't feel/sound right.

 

I'm really starting to miss the way the old in-battle tracks played. :(

I'm not digging the fact that certain things (like using AA or engine boost) negate the modules you have on it. Doesn't really make a difference other than to hinder people in nearly all aspects.

 

 

EDIT: Is it only when you use the ability? I'm confused, bc my Shimmy still has Propulsion mod 1 and the engine boost.

I am looking forward to checking the inventory out after work. I used to play a lot of RPGs so I like selling old items. load up items, sell at shop, repeat forever :)

I am happy about the removal of the 250 flag containers. I have only gotten one supercontainer, and it had 250 speed flags. I was so disappointed. But why, oh why, do we only get 4 flags now with the Try Your Luck's? I usually get the flags with those, so yay...

Why do updates take so long? I have a bad [edited]PC with cable internet at 50++ MBS also why does the update only start when I want and have time to play instead of middle of the night?

No joy for me... Inventory just gives a spinning around the wows anchor... Perhaps that's what the hot fix is about? I play on a mac... perhaps that's the problem.

The buff to the t22 feels very insignificant. It doesn't help the ship at all and you can hardly even notice the change when playing. I'm having a lot of trouble understanding why you guys did it.

 

The changes to flooding are nice. It seems to work well with ijn dd with 3x3 launchers since they have an easier time forcing out a flood.

Last week, 7 US Cruisers had a higher win rate than the Marblehead, and 7 US Cruisers had a lower win rate than the Marblehead.  I was pleasantly suprised to see its rudder shift got a big buff in this update.  That wont keep it alive any longer except in skillful situations, but it makes this once again a playable premium ship IMO.  The Marblehead of course is plagued by low firing range and high detectability.  It also has non-exceptional health and armor.  For these reasons the ship is not liked, though now it will excel in close quarters locations between islands, and is even better as an escort DD hunter.   I like the Marblehead because it has character.

missing level 14 consumables......I like the new inventory sold off 17 million in parts.... Pensacola Buff....really?  ( the ship is a miserable garbage scow ) it cant take a hit angled or bow in even from lower tier cruisers - its an embarrassment - its gonna be a long grind as sniper - I do like most of the changes in this update including ships fading in /out,  it does look like cloaking device...

This will be to fix the issue players are having with the Inventory screen not showing up. Also, those who may have not collected their Santa Containers freezing when they open them.

I had no problem with the inventory and managed to keep from selling too much. I decided to only sell stock items such as hulls which I will not reuse. Kept planes, flight groups and torps. I decided not to sell any consumables so I would not lose money buying them in the future. I think a "sell all" button would be a bad idea as  it would be too easy to make an expensive mistake. Thanks for adding this new feature to the game. :)

I've experienced an fps drop after the update. Before I averaged more than 40, now it drops to <20 during normal combat. There's also stuttering. The game's almost unplayable now. Changing all graphics settings to low didn't help. Anyone else got this issue?
