    Potoroo got a reaction from B4BYR4C3R in Submarines may be coming   
    If people want submarines they should go and play Silent Hunter.

    Potoroo reacted to Steeltrap in izumo... why?   
    First of all, they had to make up the tier 9 unless they'd gone from Nagato as tier 7 to Yamato as tier 9 to Super Yamato as 10 and leave tier 8 empty/make up a ship as they did.
     
    Finding a ship? No, they largely will make them up. It's not as though most nations made a ton of plans for ships, and by plans I mean serious drafting work as opposed to thought bubbles.
     
    Hell, the overwhelming majority of the Soviet BB line is likely to be pure fantasy, as will their performance (Soviets were very much behind in naval tech; which isn't a slight on them, it's a simple statement of fact as naval building was simply not the priority other military tech was, for good reasons).
     
    As for a Colobado charging you? That's pretty funny. First of all it does a whole 21kt, so if it's charging you and closing the range it's because you're letting it as you can easily outrun it AND out-range it. Have you played the Colobado? The idea anyone is complaining about a BB from tier 5 and up as WORSE than the Colobado is pretty funny (other than AA where it does, ironically, shine).
     
    Lastly, either WG is genetically partially inept at balance OR it's their business model to litter every single line with at least ONE stinker, the idea being to 'encourage' you to spend money. They did it in WoT, too.
     
    Hell, gamers might just be stupid enough to pay them money NOT to play their game (I tend to pay money to PLAY games, not to reward awful design decisions such as to punch you in the marbles every time you go up a tier by making the next stock item a completely gimped, useless PoS), so maybe they're geniuses (or at least understand how stupid a lot of gamers are).
     
    As an aside, I'd have been fine with them choosing not to fill tiers with napkinwaffe rubbish just so there's something there, but apparently they don't work that way.

    Unfortunately, blah blah reasons are usually the best you can expect from Support.  Rational reasons are rare.

    But would WG get it before the Vogons showed up?! ;)

    Potoroo got a reaction from JollyGood in Weekend bonus   
    You should stop being a smart arse because you clearly need remedial English comprehension.  The phrase, "your First Win of the Day bonus will be DOUBLED", can only mean that the default bonus of 1.5 will be doubled to 3.  If the intention was to say that the weekend bonus would be double experience and credits then it should have said, "your First Win of the Day bonus will be double experience and credits".

    you can read right?  First Win of the Day is 1.5 right ????  not 'normal' right??  "normal' is not FIRST WIN OF THE DAY
  9. Cool
    Potoroo reacted to JollyGood in Weekend bonus   
    Apart from the fact that I am a native born speaker and have qualifications in teaching English I can assure you it is NOT clear and is ambiguous.  X2 means X2 of the NORMAL exp which is 1.5
     
    BTW what on earth is "To boost on your morale"   really?  "ON your morale"?  "boost UP" maybe?  or just plain "to boost"   anyway.. you get the point. WG really should employ a proof reader

    Potoroo reacted to JollyGood in Weekend bonus   
    you think this is a helpful answer?  it is advertised as 'double' it's not about 'arguing' when I was at school 'double'  1.5 meant 3  but maybe you have a different calculation?  if you meant increase from 1.5 to 2  then that's what should be advertised?  right?
  11. Cool
    Potoroo reacted to JollyGood in Weekend bonus   
    To boost on your morale, your First Win of the Day bonus will be DOUBLED starting from this Friday! Time to rack up on some EXPs!
     
    since when does 1.5 DOUBLED = 2?

    Potoroo reacted to JollyGood in Weekend bonus   
    you have a serious misunderstanding about English language  
     
    your First Win of the Day bonus will be DOUBLED 
     
    enough - it's badly written and can be taken both ways
     
    "your First Win will be increased to X2"  or  "X2 for the first Win of the Day"  makes it clearer but I see it's pointless arguing with you so let's leave it there

    Those would be the replays you have to manually enable by editing an XML file "at your own risk" and which apparently are unreliable anyway?

    Potoroo reacted to Lightbringer84 in In the name of sanity   
    Sorry if I sounded too extreme I didn't mean to be. As I said, it's just something I noticed and put together over these months (in this game), and years of playing online games, my own experience so to speak. If only they can/ and want to communicate in order to cooperate, they are more than welcome in my party. Otherwise, I'm gonna be real honest here and say my 11 years of online gaming experience (starting from World of Warcraft), with their presence, has been unpleasant to say the least. I'm just stating my thoughts, no finger pointing here lol. Anyhow, I have no quarrels with them. I'm simply a guy who enjoys teamwork and good communication, both in real life and in game, hence the rage towards those who don't, lol.
     
    My point in this thread is to ask WG if they can reinforce the English speaking by not giving people the tool to type in other Asian languages, nothing wrong with using the English Alphabet. That's all. This is not Russian server so I don't think that's too much to ask.
     
    My 2cents, no offense to anyone
     
    P.S. English is not my native tongue just so you know. I've had my fair share of difficulties when learning another language, but I chose to uphold and respect it as the universal communication form. And I think other Asians could do the same.
     
    Thanks for putting up with my rant lol. Now I need to get back to sinking more ships

    Potoroo reacted to Izrid in Voice Messages for Quick commands and Emoticons.   
    I won't be playing anymore until I see an option to turn down the volume/mute them independently of the other sounds. Their loudness and frequency of spam shits me to tears >_>

    Potoroo got a reaction from ZEONWILLRISEAGAIN in take ocean out of the map rotation   
    Keep playing.  It's deliberate so often it's a joke, and the devs confirmed not so long ago that it's more common on this server than on the others by an order of magnitude.  It's cheap, it's cheating, it's dishonorable and the devs still haven't come up with an effective solution.

    Potoroo reacted to admiral_tee in Australia - World of Lagships   
    I have no lag at the moment, on ADSL2+ with ~12Mb/s. Ping is around 40m/s on the WOWS server.
     
    To all those that voted Liberal/National in the previous federal election, I hope you're not the ones whinging about lag and poor connections. As that would be the height of hypocrisy.
     
    And karma...

    Potoroo got a reaction from theredsteel in Blue Line Abuse Discussion   
    No, it's not easy.  It's marginally easier than it was but the moment they start twisting back and forth on the blue line it's still a nightmare trying to hit them because of how the blue line accelerates turning, which in turn  makes it harder to judge both the rate of turn and their acceleration.

    Potoroo got a reaction from Krieg in How Special Are We?   
    It can't be gaming the system since the whole point of bonuses is to encourage people to play.  This would encourage people to play all three modes as well as giving them a modest boost for doing so.  And it would be modest since it would only mean two extra battles of the day per ship getting x1.5 instead of x1, hardly worth the hysteria.
     
    As I said, you only oppose the idea because I suggested it.
  22. Cool
    Potoroo got a reaction from S4pp3R in Ranked Battles 2 BBs aye?   
    No, they're not.  Random battles are just awful.  RB teams are generally much more cooperative and aware so right now I'm happier with them including the more flexible MM.  Tightening the MM would be retrograde.

    Potoroo reacted to lengxv6 in Gun Ranges   
    Nautical miles (feet and yards) are used by Merchant and Defence Navies all over the world due to the fact they fit into Longitude and Latitude, you know, that grid thing they print on maps and globes.
    The distance between Latitudinal lines do not change, there are 60nm to every 1 degree of Latitude, Longitude changes as you go north/south due to the decreasing distance between the lines.

    Potoroo reacted to Steeltrap in Taking Out Noob Traps   
    Hence my recurring theme about WG's seeming incapacity (for English speakers at least) to clarify significant game mechanics.
     
    It's one of the (several) things that really [redacted] me off about WG. I see it as lazy and contemptuous of their player base. There really is no excuse for it.
