    Manual AA skill

    Just in case you don't know, the cross just means not recommended,not that you can't use it. Although is weird for it is crossed for the Montana though.

    cn_70 top player

    From his score maybe he hid in the very corner of the map and couldn't be found?!

    So IEarlGrey is "SACKE- i mean resigning "

    Thanks for finding that! Forgot myself that it was the WoWs CEO and not the studio head.Doesn't make it any less bad though.

    So IEarlGrey is "SACKE- i mean resigning "

    Wasn't if the CEO who also said the event was for players with no like and/or are disabled? Trying to find the post now,but no luck so far. Did find a post with Sub_Octavian though confirming the PR is a money grab from last month: Cos, you know,they don't make enough from charging normal full game prices for a lot of ships! 😄

    Yep,looks like his comments conveniently gave them the excuse to throw someone who wasn't high in the company under the bus, and try and deflect some of the anger.

    Back around 2016 on the NA server,had a low tier game where the green CV spawned in,launched torps at a friendly South Carolina,and got reflected damage till he sunk.I reported it to customer service and got the usual BS reply they give. Six months later,I read a thread on the NA forum where the same player was still doing the same thing ( I seen it before the thread got binned for naming and shaming ). Unless I see WG actually name who they deal with,I don't trust them to follow through like they say they do.

    I reckon CN_70 is probably putting money into the game to help their bots along,WG won't want to stop a reliable source of cash!

    Puerto Rico is a joke compared to Premium CV

    I think we are gonna need bigger popcorn bags for when they do,gonna make CV and PR look like minor issues!

    fun and engaging

    Well, you see,according to Sub_Octavian a fight with 3 Mike Tyson's would be 'balanced' because their spreadsheets would say it is! I was reading through his responses to various things on redditt a couple of days ago,and in a thread about this exact sort of issue: He said that from WG side there wasn't any problem with them,and pretty much called everyone one whiners who were complaining about them: ; WG usual attitude to CV complaints:

    German Dispersion

    Was going through Sub_Octavians posts on reddit ,initially to see his response on the latest PR 'fun and enaging' issues inivloving Earl's tweets,and came across stuff on the German BB dispersion changes. Apparently it was viewed as a quality of life change,not a proper buff: https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/dzncay/germans_are_bacc/f89rpz0/?context=3 Also as shown at the bottom,it looks like they are may do something with secondaries in 2020.Although given the dispersion changes it probably won't be anything to get excited about. He also talks about KM BB in general and buffs here as well: https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/dfi0hd/playerbase_talking_to_wargaming_about_buffing/f3674fc/ So what? There are a lot of super old ships in the game, and they are still absolutely viable. They trade good secondaries for main batter accuracy No, they also trade good armor and citadel immunity + hydro from T8 New lines and premiums have better accuracy and secondaries than them, meaning power creep Unfortunately, this is not true, because ship specs work together. E.g. FR BB secondaries are great, but they lack punch (pen) and overall FR BB are not good in CQC as their armor does not offer the same protection, and they don't have hydro. Upgrading FR BB for brawling is an option, but it is quite sub optimal, while with KM BB this is fully viable (apart from the highest competitive cases). Spreadsheet says they are fine They are, indeed, and there is nothing wrong in acknowledging it. To prevent some really weird questions about "that's because potatoes play them!", this is not true, and I looked at their data relative to the players skill extensively. We made special data pull for KM BB players for last few months and compared their solo KM BB stats with their solo stats on other BB on respective tier + broke it down by percentile of player overall WR. The WR on KM BB relatively to other BB and player WR is fine - they usually occupy the middle positions. And actually, looks like that top players make KM BB work best. For example, top 5% of players achieve not "fine" but the best WR on Grosser Kurfurst among all T10 BB lines: 73% WR on G.K., 71% on Conqueror and Republique, 70% on Montana and 67% on Yamato. But top 5% of players is extreme of course but it's the trend - the better account WR is, the better rankings KM BB show. On the other hand, of course they are not the best BB for raw damage: the same top 5% of players deal 118k average damage on G.K., while on Montana they 121k, 126k on Yamato, etc, etc. This trend is more or less same for all KM BB down to Bayern - lacking in raw damage, but still showing good battle influence (obviously because tanking and scouting). Then you can ask why we are going to buff them if they are so good? Well, because of your feedback and perception :-) We do understand that your experience on these ships is not just numbers in the data pull. However, our challenge is to improve them but not overdo it. It is extremely important especially with KM BB because they, well, are the most, sometimes by large margin, popular BBs in the game. And because they objectively do not underperform, we want to take it slow and easy. As I said, if everything goes ok, some good changes will happen in 0.8.11, and then we will see what 2020 brings in terms of opportunities to address them more. Cheers!

    German Dispersion

    Think of it like when the Aussie government says they are gonna give us a big tax break to help people out,and we end up with an extra 20 cents a week in our pay packet. All talk and no effective action!
