What is that Autumn Festival camo? Might be competing for worst perma camo ever?

Ranked back to T10, sadness ensues.

I'll be happy when they update the friggin' reticles for carriers, seeing as how they keep messing with fog here, there, mist, etc... 

Options for all players to select COLOR, BOLD/NORMAL is all we need. Thank you very much. 

I saw this and thought oh slick... they're putting Optimus Prime (OP - funny, eh?) in the game... will his voice tracks be in there too? How about a OP head atop the bridge that rotates with the guns? Slick.

Alas... camos look very fashionable, I will admit.

Indeed, I had greatly enjoyed the break from t10 as well.


We can still hope the next cb season will be non t10 though. T9 or t7 please!

Praying for modders to give us mods to replace this version of Optimus and Megatron's voices with the Cullen and Welker originals.

If it does something different from the norm (e.g. the way the National camos, the Kobayashis and the Eugen Adler camo do), it might sell. Otherwise the Eugen and the Warspite in particular have enough duplicates already as to make this not worth the while. But this:

Quote

Chang’e with specialization on Pan-Asian and Japanese ships.

should be of interest to anyone who has a Bajie and an Izumo. Or plenty of premium destroyers in both navies.

Seeing as the last few collabs have been seemingly all money based, I'd not super hopefully about being able to get any of this for free.  Which is sad.  I remember the days when effort was rewarded.

That said, Bumblebee and Megatron do look tasty.....

- Scrolls down blog thinking to myself;

 "Oh cool nice looking camos for the transformer thing. Bet they'll be pricey though" 

- Continues to scroll down page thinking to myself;

"Oh Jeebus WTH are these gaudy mid-Autumn camos! Who would even begin to think these looks good?"  

- Continues to scroll down page thinking to myself;

"Hasbro must have had a hand in designing their camos. To bad the ships don't actually transform. Now that would be cool!!"

- Continues to scroll down page thinking to myself;

"More specialized captains. Bet they will cost or be a grind from !@#$%."

- Continues to scroll down page thinking to myself;

" Beautiful and realistic fog? Not so realistic if it doesn't change dispersion or spotting. But anyway, yeah, okay, whatever. 

- Scrolls back up the page thinking to myself;

"What did I miss? Oh yeah, there it is. That one liner. They always sneak in a single line in-between other announcements . It's like they try to hide stuff inside a wall of text. Oh it's Ranked again!? Tier X again!? When will this game ever come up with something, anything new!? 

Exits page thinking to myself:

"Is this what my relationship with WoWs has come to? Are they all smiles running to me with open arms and I've become so bittier I just turn away."

We just had ranked at an even tier...would it be possible to have it at an odd tier?

It's a no for me as I am no where near the Montana, I have the Gearing Space Camo, and I am grinding to the Grozovoi (not Khab)…..but then I saw the Megatron camo I thought hmmmmm!

But then I looked at the Space Camo and thought 'nope the Space Camo for GK is better!' The real issue for me is the stupid prices asked for what is 'a look'. The fact is, if I have already spent money on a look I like, I am not going to spend more money (especially the amount WG ask) on another look - however much I like it!

 

The Autumn camo is God awful IMO, and I have so many Japanese Captains sitting in reserve the only possible Capt purchase would be the Pan Asian one (if you can actually get them as single Captain purchases!).

When you activate the horn it needs to say "I am Optimus Prime". :cap_horn:

I do wish with some of these special captains you could choose their nation. I have no need for anymore Japanese or Pan-Asian skippers.

I have all the current missions that were active since their introduction, only completed one by grinding, a few is close to being done and I think one or two I bought for doubloons last year in the armory when they were available for doubloons.

 

I may not be able to rank out next season, but that's okay since it means more grinding that I can do for the tier 10 unique upgrades that I have left

  1. I really like a couple of the camo's - but unless there is an option that isn't RNG bull out of containers -I don't care because I don't have the money for them. Finally saw the email from work that basically amounts to 'odds are your not working this year' cause it's a sports stadium and don't make enough to get anything else so even if I wasn't hesitant to spend money on your game given it's current state and actions of the company over the last 2 years specifically - I couldn't anyway cause what little I make to spend on things no loner exists.
  2. Mid-Autumn Festival - Second verse same as the first. Nice to see another cross nation commander. But what's the deal with the Kaga Camo? If it's just a normal camo, why do I care? If it's one that simply recolours the planes like the camo - why do I care. If your going to give me carrier camo's - they need to be like the Halloween ones, where it actually changes what your flying. Because at least in RTS, I actually spent some time looking at my ship to appreciate any kind of cool camo - now all my time is spent looking at planes.
  3. Unless it's removed by the fog removing mod in the modstation, at which point it doesn't matter, you just made it that much harder for me to hit a target because it'll blend the colours even more for me unless they are using something like that Mid-Autumn Festival camo. Another change to make the game look pretty I need like a hole in the head because like some of the changes to water and what not with CV reticules and all it makes it harder to freaking play because I can't see were I'm aiming or what I'm aiming at. This is getting freaking stupid, especially cause there seems to be way too much focus on style and not freaking substance aka fixing CV's because despite what the spreadsheet say according to Sub per a year ago the 'good' numbers are false numbers based on two extremes, balancing other ships that need it, giving us ACTUAL good splits - like the USN BB one we've been asking for for years - not the absolute joke and borderline insult you guys tossed up, etc.

Doesn't matter what collabs you do, or how pretty you make the game, if no one wants to play or pay because they are getting decimated by CV's, are playing CV's and their planes are decimated by AA, their aim is impeded due to 'pretty graphics changes', poorly balanced ships and ones that have been powercrept over 5 years (many USN BB's) or overnerfed (most of the IJN torpedo DD line), and when we spend literal years asking for something, and giving you guys tons of info, and almost everyone listing the same 7 ships - Deleware, Florida, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, South Dakota, South Dakota 1920, with yeah, maybe a Tillman at the top - decide instead to say what amounts to 'Screw you guys' and A: not give us that split, B: base a 3 tier split off the Tillman's and not bloody follow the concept of the Tillman's, and C: to throw further salt in the wound after releasing 4 premiums at 3 tiers of the 7 most listed in a split, after that announcement of the split you go 'hey guys, were adding at tier 5 Oklahoma, the Nevada Class battleship' - making it now 4/8 tiers of an actual damn split done as premiums. 4/8 from 5-8 and you guys worked on Georgia and Ohio - if you don't want a split starting at 3 or 4 - that's a line split.
