How about next time you just directly sell the camos in one bundle and then a bundle with each ship and camo respectfully? You turn away a lot of customers by having them pay for a dice roll. 

Also, where are the dragon ships at? Not making an appearance this time?

The Spring Festival has arrived in the game. Its festive containers are already in the Shop!

I honestly think the rental ideal is great but not in this way.   Id love to see a 1 day type rental   So players can experience the ship and make a choice to purchase it fully.  I own almost every ship in the game, but lot of players ask for this.  Especially ones on a budget

Also as Phil stated above... I wish the camos were a bundle.  They are awesome.  But I am not doing another random loot box to maybe get it.   Christmas crates were pretty poor.  And this practice is turning me away.

Still think WG should sell Premium time in say, 4 hour blocks. Sometimes you only have an evenings to play so getting 24 hrs is mostly wasted.  Price-wise the 4 hour block should be about 1/4-1/3 the price of a 24 hr block.

They are selling the Kidd as an AA focus DD -- will they nerf it in the future by moving it back up a tier just like the GC?

i think what they did with 8.0 has done nothing but ruined the fun of being able to control multiple groups of planes.the cv has gone from a powerful tool to a limp noodle.

but good luck

I won’t buy anything from WG. Who knows when they will “buff” it to a higher tier. And +-2 tiers match maker is suck. Many players have complained about it, WG don’t think this is a problem. So why do we need to buy a tier8 ship to be abused by tierX ships?

If there was only two tiers per battle set up by matchmaker I might be interested in a T8 ship. A T8 ship is almost always going to be up against many T10 ships. I think WG would sell way more T7 and T8 premium ships if there was only 1 tier of separation in battle.

Looks like a decent ship ! But ... 

I own most of the premiums in this game - yep spent far too much hard earned money on this game - BECAUSE WG has to this point largely deserved it with what has been a great game and ever expanding content - balance tweaks here and there as the game evolves - some good , some over done ... are needed and that is mostly fantastic - despite what many say that WG never listens, they actually have. sometimes a little slow, but the changes happen and kudos to WG for this. 

_____________________________

I refuse to spend any more money on this game with the draconian "tweaks" like GC to t6 ?!  and others that go wayyyyy beyond the minor required tweaks and only server to break the community trust of WG and ships as a company and game working with the community to make a better game . 

------------------------------------------------

tweaking for balance in the first 4-6 weeks after release is one thing - heck, even today you want to tweak the reload or something minor on Gulio, i don't think there would be too many of us who would not agree it performs very well. BUT - up tiering to t6 now so she now faces t8 ships and planes is beyond disappointing - this is a dangerous path WG.

I for one have spent far too much money on this game because in past you largely have done a pretty damned good job. This ship is not in beta test, or live server test anymore - for a LONGGG time - we spent hard earned money to buy these premiums - this STINKS !!

 

if they want to start selling GC again - do one of two things - tweak the rate of fire and sigma as they have always done -we will grumble but mostly accept it - a tier change this late is absurd. OR ... do the above for the existing ship and retire her from sale. then introduce a GC 1942 or something for t6 ...

 

Just like the foobar WG recently did to HOOD - She used to be an effective anti cruiser and AA ship, yes, vs BB's we had to switch to HE to be effective - and that was ok, she was a specialist ! We need more variety in this game !

... the legendary 25x def AA to short range rockets were awesome in the right circumstances(Silly cv players that let their planes inside 1.9km) ... - her current AA is MEH at best - the ap fuse timing changes make this ship now a piece of complete crap - over penning absolutely everything !!! at least before she was a competent anti cruiser platform

- now she doesn't hurt BB's or cruisers. when 2/3 of a person AP shells overpen, something is bloody well broken. - worse than Roma for overpens by a huge number. (and I like Roma) Roma one can adapt to the shell velocity and over pen issue - let your target angle some to "thicken" the armor the AP round is passing through and you get a lot less over pens ... Hood this does not work - i suspect the lower tier cruisers armor is too thin to even arm this way ...

I am DONE buying ships until WG smarten this crap up. savagely disappointed in a some key premium "balancing" recently

- some like kii were welcome and needed. no one played her over Amagi

If WG insist on changing Premiums - i suggest WG send them to PT server for performance data before just willy nilly changing and dumping them on the live server angering the base ...

War Gaming - to me, minor changes even to premiums are fine. The game changes and tweaks become necessary. Change and new content is a good thing !

-But outright manipulation of Premiums like GC and Hood - Now this will affect your bottom line - People like me have spent far too many hundreds and thousands of dollars on this game - on the basis of the countless promises that "We will never change released premiums"

- and I don't give a damn about EULA - your word is your word or the company becomes an untrustable joke

And I say this as an avid long time supporter of this game and Clan commander who is fearful of the longevity of this great game if they continue down this path.

 and I suggest WG  consider drug test their entire staff, because something has suddenly become extremely off with this game direction .

Best of luck WG to UNDO some of the terrible mistakes of late.

 

The GC retier change would be akin to my ordering a Ford Mustang, but receiving a Ford Fusion - it is completely wrong.

Why would I spend $50 on a light cruiser to play T10 all day would be better to spend that money and convert xp and get a T9 premium.

Most of the few random games I have played in my T8 boats have seen a plethora of T9 and T10 ships, with one or two, maybe three t8 ships - not a healthy situation to be in.  I always am nervous when I call up the Cleveland, Mogami or Baltimore, figuring most likely I'll face better ships (and captains) across the board.  Luckily, at least the IJN cruiser has torps.  The Wichita?  - if her guns are not as good as the Bal'more's, then why play her?

And I never felt the GC was overpowered unless she went against T4 ships.  Against T6 and T7, she could hold her own, but not easily.
