    Detonation Compensation in Rank Battle

    Ok, 1. Detonation is an annoying and stupid thing. But its an annoying and stupid thing which has been around for a Looooong time and has been complained about for as long as well. I don't think your suggestion is going to have any better result of making WG remove it from any mode as the 1000's of suggestions and complains before you. 2.. I don't think we're WG shills for having given up on this. We're just tired. And at least you don't detonate from full HP anymore. 3. As annoying and stupid as Detonation is, is an annoying and stupid thing which can be dealt with, by using Juliet Charlie signals, and Magazine Modification 1. And not using those signals or other options which increase detonation chance. 4. If youre having trouble getting enough flags, that's a resource issue that's on you. If you have trouble getting them because you are spending resources on other things, that's on you as well. There are several solutions, and you're asking WG to solve it for you so you don't have to spend resources on solving the problem yourself.

    So.. uhm.. I datamined the forums.

    I'd argue that banning negative emotes doesn't actually increase harmony, or make the bad feelings go away. It just stops people from expressing negativity in a certain way. Which just means they will find different ways to express it. Mostly in salty posts. And as evidenced by the "Well Done" use on a fail, many people are fluent in sarcasm, and will simply use positive emotes sarcastically, which will diminish the positive value of them over time. Even though I always hated negative emotes due to the anonymity and inability to argue back, removing them always felt like censorship. And it sends a strong message "don't be negative", which sounds good, but If people cannot respond honestly and provide critical feedback, you just end up with people with elevated egos who think they can do no wrong. And hateful feelings bubbling beneath the surface. For me, its somewhat insulting, like it's saying "You're weak and cannot take criticism, so we're covering you with cotton wool to protect baby". (which stings for me because its sort of true, but I don't want it to be). And yes, these are just my Western/Australian values, but it still doesn't feel right to have other peoples values forced onto you (yes, I realize the irony of that statement that I'm arguing for the ability to judge others by your values). But I'm an idealist, I think its better for people to be allowed to say what they feel, and then just be taught and learn to be better.

    Here's to us, for keeping the forum alive by apparently having nothing better to do. Cheers

    Roast me!!!

    *looks at MajorRage's stats* *looks at own* Sorry, I want to oblige, but I can't in good conscious, being a sub 50% myself. But I do feel a certain kinship with you. So go on good sir, fight the good fight!
  5. I'd like to see that on a police report. That's almost up there with, "guy breaks into house, smashes money looking for jewels, says he's on a quest to save the kingdom" and "kid enslaved animals and forced them to fight."

    The Zoupening

    Well of course. A lot of people are nicer in the street than they are online. In the street, if you annoy people, they can punch you in the face.

    Something is spicy happening in the other forums

    True. And quite often, just because you are correct from your point of view, doesn’t mean you are correct from others. Its a strange phenomenon of real life in that two people with opposing views can still both be right.
  8. Do we know what resources Vampire II will cost? Because if its Steel, I'll be very annoyed. And if its Research Points, I will be very annoyed and curse and yell at WG because it will actually make me reconsider resetting liens, and I would really really, really Hate to do that.

    Yeah, I can understand the logic of dealing with this privately. After all, this is between WG and Flamu, and they have the right to remove him if they feel he views are no longer consistent with the brand. However, it isn’t just between WG and Flamu, you’re right, his fans. Most people these days assume that if they haven’t seen it, it didn’t happen. Regardless of if they had a right or reason to see it or not. While WG may have given Flamu dozens of private warnings, his fans didn’t see that. So they assume it’s just sudden with no warning, and will react as if it is unfair. Not that giving public warning would have worked either. They would just have made it known publicly that they were warning Flamu, and fans might have responded badly to that.

    If he’s crossed the line, then fine, WG has the right to do that. So long as they’re not doing something stupid like threatening YouTube strikes or something. I don’t watch him, but it does sound like he crossed the line from criticism to insulting.

    Grygus's Grind (Previously "What to Grind Next...")

    To clarify, of those ships, the only one I have in port is Kansas. I have the others unlocked, but not purchased. And still don't yet have the coin to buy Riga. That said, it is tempting to go for the T9 first, as that would then finish off the line. So after I get the cash, I may focus on Riga.

    Grygus's Grind (Previously "What to Grind Next...")

    Yeah, I can see that. I have a tendency to focus on just collecting it, having it in port. The journey is more important than the destination, or something like that. But when I think about it too much, it is kina pointless to work so hard to get the ship if you don't use it much 😛

    Grygus's Grind (Previously "What to Grind Next...")

    Been almost a year since my last post here! I have since completed the goals set in my last post, and also the tier 10s of all the ship lines set at the beginning of this thread two years ago. I now own 21 Tech Tree Tier 10 ships! I am, of course, completely insane. Of course, even ignoring Aircraft Carriers, I now have 7 new lines added in that time. Probably never going to catch up unless I use FXP... but I still enjoy it and it keeps me occupied. Haven't yet decided what line to do now, but I'm also out of credits, and the only tech tree non elite ship I have in port is Kansas. So I guess that will be next. Though I may switch to the Italian BBs as I get them. Maybe even focus on getting the Christopher Columbo when released, and actually be on the cutting edge of new ships for once. Other than that, I still have '5 Epoch's of the Navy' to complete, so may at least try to clear the missions for the lower ships. And currently being broke, playing more ops won't hurt. And because I like dot points and lists, here is the list of the next ships I have the option to grind. Kansas (currently in Port) Riga Devonshire Vauquelin Almalfi Skane Not that I can currently afford any of them 😛

    What is the trick to lighting fires

    To add, you cannot set a ship on fire while it’s damage control party is active. So hitting it right after they use DCP won’t work. DCP’s action time is 5 to 20 seconds (though it can be extended with certain skills, upgrades and signals). Most BBs have DCP last from 10 to 20 seconds base. CRs and DDs 5 sec. CVs are weird, don’t rely on setting them on fire.

    Fantasy Ships Should Be Their Own Nation...

    Problem is that then you would not be able to move those captains to ships of other nations. I think that would reduce the appeal of those captains to the Anime fans who like to put those captains on their regular ships. And that would mean that less people would buy those captains. And that would mean less money for WG. I don’t see WG going for that.
