  1. One of my Clan mates had this fun and engaging ranked experience - the other side had CV plus 2 kearsarge . A grand time was had by all allegedly. I know MM doe not balance the hybrids, just as it doesnt balance radar. the radar situation is lot better than it was back when only a handful of ships had radar, but the hybrids should be balanced. Ah well , back to the Gulag to join the rest of the proletariat.
  2. Tankiest class in the game ;) Surfaced a sub can take more HE hits from DD class guns to sink than an equivalent tier DD. And given subs have a lower HP pool, I wonder what space magic armour is going on.
  3. I've entered my signal numbers into the Weege spreadsheet At first glance it looks like there will be a significant drop in the number of bonus signals. My guess this is deliberate, and part of a longer term goal to rebalance the economy. There are chages to base economy to compensate but the cynic in me says long term a reduction in signals in game will make it easier for Economy changes to be made that may have a revenue boost for WG. Hope Im wrong, Im far too tired to really engage my braincell. But if I read the spreadsheet right ther eis gonna be a big drop in signal, which will of course be chewed thrrough quicker. Any suprised that this is also being announced as Souperships go live. WG really want to kneecap the economy and increase the grind I fear,
  4. Im too tired too work out what this mean, but I am certain this will cause a **** show regardless. Hope WG learned from the Missouri economy fiasco. Side note I see they have announced a nerf tonoght to the souper ships.

    Is it worth coming back?

    So long as you enjoy being Perma spotted by CVs, with 0 counterplay options and and now Perma spotted by DDs who can abuse a broken mechanic that lets them spot and attack you while sailing being invisble, yep come right on back.
  6. The karma system has about as much meaningful impact on the game as throwing an egg on your PC screen. Actually, chucking an egg has more impact than the meaningless report / compliment system.

    Wargaming leave Russia and Belarus

    Not true. They moved their headquarters to Cyprus in 2011 a few months after the launch of WOT. WG have been around since the late 90s. As far as severing ties between Lesta and WG goes, dont take the statements at face value, please. Yes it may prove 100% true that the entitity Wargaming no longer has a direct ownerships /relationship with Lesta. That does not mean the shareholders of wargaming won't continue to have a relationship with Lesta. I can almost guarantee that Lesta's ownership will be moved to a new holding company the ownership of which will be hidden by the shell game of trusts and offshore holding companies. And WG will probably claim a massive tax loss on the transfer, although in Cyprus that may not mean much... Sure there will be operational hits, rebranding will cost a bomb if they ditch the Wargaming name , working out how to operate the Ru servers, moving Lesta. They will have planned for most of this.

    Wargaming leave Russia and Belarus

    I suspect it will have far less impact than most people fear. the recent 'pandemic of unknown origin' showed the full possibilities of remote work. hell, one of my old school mates spent nearly 20 years as a game dev for Maxxis and then EA, he spent nearly all that time working remotely in the UK over a crappy 3G then 4G link that gave him 6Mbps on a good day Key staff will move, dev peeps will quite possibly keep working from home in Belarus in the near term. WGs have the finacncial structure already in placewhat with being domiciled in Cyprus that much of this will be rearranging deck chairs.

    Will OPERATIONS reboot ?

    WG has pretty much ignored operations since the CV rework. All the best ops had bot planes, and WG either cannot or won't adapt those ops for the reworked CVs.The lack of new ops has led to the player base lost interest, which then led to WG saying player interest in ops is waning, which of course is due in no small part to Wg abandoning ops. Hell, wg have only recently announced new maps for random play, although Id say dont hold your breath on that one. its only been, um, I want to say 2 1/2 years since a new map? Bottom line is thing like ops and maps do not directly earn WarGambling money. Ships, camos and prem time, so thats where the focus is. Of course things like new maps and ops would probably improve player engagement, but wg doesnt seem to care about happy players, only $$$$$ in the prem shop / armoury.

    USS Indianapolis - Fascinating Horror

    The story behind the Indianapolis is truly tragic. The Captain being hung out to dry, and th decades long struggle to clear his name. And then pile on the horror of the aftermath of the sinking.

    Sales Pressure Tactics

    There are a bunch of reasons to be annoyed with WGs Sales and marketing practices. This is not one of them. Its oerfectly clear what it is. Of ocurse it is an inducement to spend now. If you dont like it just wait every 6 months ( or whatever it is) for your 25% off ship voucher. Sure it might suck if you are between pay cheques or something, but if you dont have the discretionary $$$$ available right now, it is probably a sign that you shouldnt be giving War Gambling any money at this point in time.
