    Waaaaaaaaait a sec...

    I was also wondering what happens if you coal purchase then get lucky with a container, site does not mention compensation, those these days would assume credits.

    Sad state of KM ships

    Siegfried is one of the 4? Research Bureau ships. Forgot about Mainz, thanks. So T-61, Mainz, Siegfried, Hindy. Out of 4 very good ships, 1 is tech tree, 2 premium and 1 PR. Considering Germany now has a full tree, just saying it does not seem to have a lot of top picks compared to other nations that even have with less lines.
  3. Ignoring German CV's Can someone tell me is there a new version of Treaty of Versailles in this game? Some hidden URL link maybe, that states Germany must pay for the two last world wars and your ships, even if virtual and in a game should mostly suck? Yes T-61 and Hindy are still great, Eugen/Roon are ... acceptable. Tirpitz used to be a badass. Powercreep is not helping. But these token missions, where the requirement is German ships, I mean I have all the silver ships, missing a few premiums. But looking what to take out and its ... its , its painful. Feels so forced and reluctant to press "Battle". And Z-35 coming out this week... with 6km fish !#^%@# Where is the German Stalingrad? Where is that German DD you would take over Halland/Daring/Haru/Kleber/Shima/Friesland/Groz even T9s like Jutland/Kita/Mogador? German lineup just seems to have a hidden trait "bottom pick". Please change it.
  4. I found during PTS a sub could just surface when depth charges were being dropped for zero damage. Of course you can then fire and torp them as a surface vessel. I did this to a DD, really close and his guns couldn't elevate downwards enough to shoot me. Also as a DD depth charges don't seem to have any friendly fire. Didn't test enough but on one occasion with two subs dancing around each other trying to torp I ran depth charges over both of them and just got an enemy kill and our sub took no damage. When stationary and dropping depth charges you also take no damage. Normally you would need to be moving forward to avoid your own hull taking damage, the AoE still can damage surface ships. Which brings me back to the point of them doing zero damage to surfaced subs.

    You playing the long game @RalphTheTheatreCat ? With your famous RNG, you will likely just get PR with your free 2020 Santa Crate next year. Sometimes I think theirs a leprechaun in your family tree somewhere I swear!

    You also got to love how the first 3 directives have 3 missions with much much lower requirements .... if you purchase the Gorizia day 1 🙂 That is A+ monetization right there students!

    Yeah a lot of reddit posts. I mentioned they could have made this more palatable by using an open ended campaign. Thats what I thought it would be when they first started selling it, i.e. it takes a long time to build a ship. Making it time gated, add in FOMO, well its a crap move. No wonder there is hate. No one would have cared about the grind if you had a year to chip away at it like the Yamamoto campaign. Offering 24K doubloons for a large boost, but still needing to do 2 directives is ..... yeah.

    carrier population down yet??

    Had 4 t10 games last night, no CV. Night before was similar with a few 1 CV games. Small sample size 😊 but I feel it's been on the decline in the last week with the odd spike.
  9. Well I am going to go against the grain and say I am actually looking forward to this patch. If to remind me of this, in the last week I have been trying to grind out some lines to get Henri, Kitakaze and Jutland for some extra steel via snowflakes. As the patch approached I saw many more CV games, far more than normal. Last night, every match had a CV and only one of them was even'ish. I was on the wrong side of many broken pinned CV divs, Saipan especially. So much fun as you can imagine. Last night 0.8 couldn't hit quick enough. I like that the game is constantly changing and evolving, keeps it fresh. Some new maps would be nice too WG 🙂

    Blowing off Snowflakes

    https://steel.in.fkn.space/ Uses API (ship battle stats) to get your steel and coal count, won't work with a private profile. Also if you have a few port queens that have never left the dock, they won't count so take that into account. ARP ships count as tech ships.

    Fail Platoon Rant - Come get Triggered

    Wow, it's almost a presentation. Do you have the PowerPoint version? IMO it's a WG MM issue. Shouldn't knock the players for trying to get new players into a very niche game. Nothing wrong with + 1 div, it's lets friends play together. Been an MM shortfall since ... forever.

    Increase post-battle service fee for T8,9ships

    Thanks TC. I feel like I had my LEGO movie moment .. you know when Will Ferrell is planning to glue the LEGO togeather. Let it go .... Now when I see these elitist comments, what I see is this salty person in a toyshop, desperately glueing their bricks together, whinging about how the others are using their bricks wrong and not following the instructions! 🙂 It's a game... There is Clan Wars, Ranked, KOTS etc for the serious stuff.

    Increase post-battle service fee for T8,9ships

    This line of thought never ceases to amaze me. Random pvp groups or pugs, no matter what the game genre all have a random mix of skills and ages. People always assume when playing a game that everyone else has the same expectations. Late last year my sons wanted a turn of "Daddys warships" game. I was slightly horrified at first, my stats I thought! So I set them up on Steam with a different account. That lasted one game. It was pointed out that they only had little crappy ships, and Dad had like 100 big ships. Calm I thought, coop and scenarios to the rescue. That lasted a while.... but apparently can't play Yammy in scenarios, and neither game types had enough ships like random battles do. Eventually I just caved. They are having fun, one steers, one shoots. Sometimes they argue and the ship ends up where it should't, or just drifting off because they found something else to do. But mostly they laugh. And that is perfectly OK 🙂 Not that it matter anymore as both are now addicted to Fortnite, and spending pocket money on vbucks.
