  1. So, XP on early release ships allows you to unlock the next ship in line, once the line goes live HOWEVER, can you unlock the 2nd next ship if you have sufficient XP? For example, if you have the T7 French DD, and play it enough, can you then unlock the T8 AND T9 upon full line release? Or does the XP over and above that required to unlock the T8, still stay on the T7? TLDR: what happens to excess XP over and above that required to unlock the very next ship in line?

    Hidden Combat Missions???

    That could prove challenging playing WOWs then... 🙂
  3. Personally I can't stand the concept of using a console for anything. I used them when I was 12 and then grew up, and moved onto PC master race. TLDR: consoles for kiddies, PCs for big kids :)

    Hidden Combat Missions???

    Ah ok thanks. Got it now lol. Top left corner for me. Cheers
  5. Hi all, I've noticed that a lot of the short term combat missions do not appear in my "Combat Missions" tab on my port screen. For example, these new ones which just popped up (see below). They only show at the end of a game to show how much progress I have made towards them, but I can't see what the rewards are, as I can't hover over the rewards box on the post battle results screen. Any idea how to find details of these combat missions from the main port screen? When I go into my combat missions tab it just shows the current rogue wave ones. It doesn't show the below ones any where. This happens ALL the time. What am I missing? Thanks.

    Alaska XP Missions Gone

    So the question is, where is the evidence that they had a date on them, when mine clearly shows there is no date.

    Alaska XP Missions Gone

    Here is the current one which I assume will also expire for Enterprise. Can't show the Alaska one obviously as it has already "expired". Disappointing to see details such as this hidden away on a page somewhere, rather than displayed here where it obviously should be. Why should I have to go digging to see these details? I see the ship for sale, I buy it. So before you buy anything, you should look through all WG's website pages "just in case" there's a hidden detail there??? It's BS to me. But then, we all know, so much of what WG does is BS anyway.

    Oh say can you see?

    He wouldn't have. You get silver for duplicate. I just got mine tonight as well. First time I've got this ship, despite it being for sale previously for like $10 or something. Played one game, heading for a win, then team collapsed like usual. Top of the team in a T7 match, but no CV's. Was quite proud of myself, but boy is she slow!!!! However her guns pack a mighty punch 🙂
  9. So I purchased Alaska a while ago and it came with 200% bonus XP for the first 25 games. I haven't played her for a while, and only did a handful of games initially. Went to play some more, and noticed that the 200% XP has now been removed. Put a ticket into WG and they said it expired on 30 June. NO WHERE in my personal missions tab did it mention anything about an expiration. WG said they can't do anything about it, tough luck. Wondering if anyone else has encountered this? Very disappointing for me as a paying customer to receive this slap in the face. If it mentioned it, then of course, no problems, but the fact it was not mentioned when I look at my personal missions tab just stinks of deceipt. Don72

    Public Test of Update 0.8.2: Round 3

    When does 0.8.2 go live anyone know?
  11. Hi guys, so I've decided to come back and try out the new CV rework, and is it just me or are T6 and T8 CV's just really difficult to do well in? I've been using T6 Ryujo and T8 Kaga and in every match, flak bursts just pop up on top of me so there's no way to avoid them. You can't fly up and down, only left and right, so if a wall opens up right in front of you you planes are shredded. Kind of frustrating having 40 - 60 planes knocked down each match, and nothing you can do about it. What are your experiences with mid tier CV game play?

    Strafing in low tier CVs

    +1 from me. From my perspective, I would like to see the game become less arcady and more real life. It has so much potential, however is being intentionally dumbed down which is a real shame. Personally, I've lost a lot of enthusiasm for the game because if this. Which also ties into OP's concerns. Having such a disjunction between T5 and T6 really throws the game even more deeply into the arcade realm.

    Losing streak

    To me it's the same as flipping a coin. Sometimes you'll get a lot of heads in a row, sometimes a lot of tails in a row, and sometimes it alternates between the two.

    Strafing in low tier CVs

    Personally, I think strafing should be removed from the game. Strafing is just a nonsense, and completely unrealistic. Strafing was used against ships and land based targets NOT aircraft for Gods sake. Manual dropping should be in all levels so new comers can learn how to do it - not wait until T6 to start getting smashed (or T5 as pointed out above). If WG so afraid of Unicums putting off new players by seal clubbing, then simply halve the damage and credits earned by players with captains over 10 points (or some figure). They won't have a reason to seal club if the rewards aren't worth it. WG really screwed up badly on this one, but are too arrogant (or stupid) to acknowledge it.
  15. Hi All, If I have two groups flying currently, say: Group 1 (1,1,1) and Group 2 (1,1,1), and I want to control them separately, how do I switch between the two? Currently each time I want to swap, I push "2", hold shift, push "4", hold shift, push "6" to select group 1, then if I want to select group to I push "3", hold shift, push "5", hold shift, push "7". Surely there is a faster way of switching between two groups, without having to reselect each plane individually each time?? Thank you.
