    Why so little ship info please fix!

    Hello Devs and fellow Captains. A rant about the lack of intel on ships. For example I look in store i see Exeter. Ok so maybe i want to buy Exeter. So i read it history hmm interesting by historical part of the gaming experience for some. I read in the news about main guns and AA etc... BUT WHERE CITADEL TOP SPEED TURNING I'll put it to you this way. Would you buy a car without knowing' How safe it is How fast or many miles to the gallon it gets how easy is it to 3 point or U turn.. ? hmm To add to this mess, which seriously is a massive oversight, if the Devs / Admin had took the time to stand back and look at the game as a new player point of view you'd have noticed. There is a heck of a lot of ships that have or were sold that are not listed in the tech tree. How is one to fine out information about these ships and then use that information in battle? How many players % are actually going to want to take time to leave the game and go to the wiki or portal to fine out all this intel? or even are aware that information maybe available. How many games have been won or lost because of this missing info? How many players suffer through lack of this knowledge as counter playing other ships, > That they have no info about unless you own them > have to buy them to see what modules they have, really grinds my gears! Like why do I have to buy a ship to then find out what it is capable of? So I have any in game knowledge about it when trying to counter it!! Where is the common sense in not knowing what a ship is fully capable of, its strengths and weakness's before buying it?? It only discourages wanting to buy a ship, certainly for $! Where is this all info about all ships available and actually in game! The Golden rule here is players should never have to leave the game. Especially to find out info about the games ships!. WG has sort of cut its own throat by doing this. WG has seriously missed catching these things and is no doubt suffering, certainly not benefiting the uniformed players satisfaction, or economically. Some totally illogical reason, hiding the very information which should be a ships selling points! right?? Giving all the info! WG you dropped the ball, a player should never leave the game, for any reason! You keep them focused in game ! Throw as many events and pseudo deals aka loot crate variables as you can at the players for WG $ income, its'the way of all free to play games! Every time a player leaves the game, there is only another chance for them to get side tracked, put on other playlist or look for music, check social media etc.. If an account is not absorbed in game, in either the interface or in game play, they are not exposed to an opportunity to buy the over priced products is reduced! This is precisely why a players time out of the game should be reduced to the least, if any at all! During the time they've allocated to play this title. I remember the first time I watched in game event or content about this title in youtube, i thought how cheap and tacky! This is the first title I've ever seen a game do this! Get your own content Server all ready! Blade servers are being sold all the time, get some new hard drives and some redundant ones and away you go for a few K in USD, there's really no excuse. Even second hand servers will be coming out in the market now! being March and the end of the financial year! No more tacky off site Youtube distractions! These end showing other topics, not game content!!! which show in the background after WOWS content This is only an opportunity to side track your viewers from the game -S! No excuses keep player focus on game! What is WG marketing team thinking! why haven't they bought this up with management! Never let players leave game! or have to to find out information that should be in game! >> Including ships no longer sold or premiums no longer sold that they will face in battle! Players need this info > most readily accessible via the tech tree (if only you didn't have to buy a ship to see what its modules etc are =.-= ! Its Ridiculous! So instead of noting these seemingly obvious short falls, I also have a solution. Tech tree is your one stop shop! Possibly depending on player opinion. do away with annoying carousel! Tech Tree is could be altered so it the way you: Select a ship (its so easy the whole nation is right there no scrolling or having to select or refine ships! you see everything! Click done!) 2 clicks Nation / ship easy! Instead of Click carousel options, Click nation. Click Refine by class and Click ship. Tech tree BOOM its all right there Nation / Select A ship and It has ALL ship info and ALL SHIPS, modules citadels everything, only need to click on it, IF YOU OWN IT OR NOT! Give 0 reasons to leave game! or risk losing -$ every single time. All info including all ship layout plans specifications must be in game!!. Ok, WG you been told what could be drastically improved for your own $ benefit and also for the players some thorough intel on everything! Again all ships! discontented to! anything you might fight against. The Tech tree thing is only my preference, Ive gotten into the habit of using it, over a 4 high stacked carousel, but as for listing all the ships, modules specs showing its AA and Torp ranges its layout of citadel etc... im pretty adamant that needs to happen. Yes I am well aware there is a large number of ships, but there is also a large number of vacant places in nearly all tech trees. Players will only get less enjoyment not having this sort of info and some people like myself who do buy ships do so with some concern not knowing 100% what they're getting into. And n the case of the Exeter being a VI and therefore more likely to get up 7 and 8's I've decided not to purchase it and keep my money. GG for my wallet. Fair seas and a following wind . o7

    Invisible ship of doom.

    YO WG Getting a little tired of this one, so thought i'd take a moment to point out this one. Im camped in Amagi. im in turret view - with enemy about to come around island Im focussed looking at the time to target indicator... However in this few seconds before enemy is able to be attacked my team mate has reversed into my line of fire to the target and is now situated very close to me. So Team mate has moved in between me and Target ...and can not bee seen at all is ghost ship. SO Team mate DOES NOT APPEAR IN TURRET VIEW AT ALL So i fire, with no indication that there is anything about to go wrong. this is hyper frustrating way to get a pink. Hello Pink is not my color!!! Please fix.

    54 Hp bot refusing to die.

    Never mind, i was informed it was due to damage saturation. However i've never seen it on level 1 bots. Will damage saturation also stop fires from breaking out when aiming for superstructure?

    54 Hp bot refusing to die.

    Hi. While waiting for the new daily missions, i thought id run a level I ships, bot map for a quick 100% bonus. Got towards late part of the game and i was shooting a nearby bot in our cap.. and shooting it and shooting it and btw shooting it.. Noted its HP was 54 and not going down, was firing HE (the only option at the bow) So zoomed in in turret view moved up to the super-structure nope 54hp and not dying ...no fires can hear the impacts.. Shot it as it moved forward and reversed... It wasnt until a stray shell caught it near the stern that it actually died, by the time i noted this issue I had already hit it quite a few times 10-15 So what is the secret to this bots immortality? (I haven't watched the replay) o7 20181224_131327_PJSC037-Hashidate-1940_33_new_tierra.wowsreplay

    No Daily missions

    hmmm, interesting I wonder why its not done at the same time, why is there any reason for them to not have things reset at server reset time. I must've been mistaken thinking they used to reset at the same time, thanks.

    No Daily missions

    hello, Earlier today there were no daily missions available for completion after server reset. I had played from before reset time and after for several games before i noticed the time and thought i noticed that my daily missions werent visible in my nafter game battle reports.. So i looked at the events area, no new daily missions... Only the one displaying my current progress 36 / 40.. So i thought i would log out and see, if its just a glitch... Completely closed everything wows related, i dont use game center as its buggy and slows the load process. Much to my dismay and for the first time there still were no daily missions as scheduled.. Thinking that the Dreadnought was released to other players by about today, id figured WG had figured it had given enough away and was being miserly to others trying to "earn it". Now I've noticed there are daily missions. and I've already played many of the ships that i like to use... GG WG I'm totally unimpressed at this one. o7

    Several in game issues

    Hi, Just a bump to 1 Also ships in range, in bot matches, mysteriously disappearing for a brief moment at a frequently consistent time, that being just before guns are reloaded. These ships are within normal detection ranges.. o7

    Technical issues found.

    Issue still remains... Even the reset router trick didnt work or an ipconfig /release /renew... Whatever they're doing in updates, i do not want to wait for an update and then run into this issue, now repeatedly after every patch. it is most tedious and doesnt inspire premium time or spending.. Even if compensation comes it doesnt replace the time taken... It will start to cost this title money soon at this rate... Maybe the staff need the wind set up them with a good old Trump like" YOUR FIRED" and i dont mean broadside! or more staff onboard since prices have increased!... just to get the job needed doing done! At least to a marketable level! HERES AN IDEA!! STANDARDIZE YOUR UPDATES / LOGIN PROCEDURE / GAME CLIENT CHECK Im losing patience with this titles issues after patches and i dont even use mods! The price increases and selling reductions in the inventory... Show us where my and other captains who choose support this title by $$ is going give some validation to the sneaky price increase...!

    I Love WG!

    This is nothing. Try being in a ship 2 levels lower 8 - so no heals / less slots, quite likely a lower level captain too! There is one IX and the rest of the 12 man squad is all X's !! Then you are playing with players who have in excess of 12k games are ranked #1 and others in Huricain league... Oh and btw your level 20... and your time for match making was barely 15 seconds... AND This type of Bull ship happens on a regular basis! After these games happened so often and the loss's started to mount, I started to check the after match team list thinking im caught in some sort of RNG hell. Guess what, It soon became all to clear what the issue really was. 1) More often than not to the extreme! I was facing teams with more and better ranked players than were on my team. 2) They seemed to have more Worcesters Des memes lollantas as a large bias 3) The other team far more frequently had players that had an achievement badge noting at least some skill level and game experience. even if it was only for consistent damage as perhaps they played BB mains. 4)Worst of all I was in a lower level ship, this even happened at level 7 ships which isnt supposed to be up levelled so much, soI was informed. Unfortunately i was advised to play ijn ships So when i got my Zao... the slow rate of fire and lowest health pool = rip facing virtually any other cruiser. Turtle back you what, angle nope.. Virtually everything over matches your armor. 3 Salvos your almost if not dead. The cost of service 158K + change I think was raised recently along with many other increases (such as 1K credit increase to the required Type 5 camo..the decrease in inventory item sell prices to!), but for level X meaning having to make near 190K credits.consistently just to break even... 5k doubloons to by a camo... what a rip off! <-- going to call that one like i see it. One game i did 89.4k damage barely made chump change in credits profit.. I've heard of accounts which are basically when created made to feed other players... I've even had a friend that was playing a particular game type could never get out of Silver league... Started another account waddaya know... gold, diamond easy... Now im basing this on the clear and notable match making, where i'm consistently playing against OBVIOUSLY higher skill set players in higher level ships with lower skilled / ranked team mates and the other team seems to have a clear advantage consistently with more radar, more atlantas des moines and worcesters... to the point that i started to notice this one sidedness and started to take notes of it just to be sure I wasnt being biased and blaming myself or my team. Removing the "get good" argument... I used to keep telling mysellf..or youre only noticing this bias in ships and higher skilled opposition when your losing... Not so... I took time to take the data down! and the pattern became all to clear. So now, when people tell me not to worry about win rates and oh people put to much emphasis on win rates... I think much like the title of this thread. F .... Its beyond win rates and noob team mates and facing a superior level ships skill level and rank players... It gets to the very point.. IT MAKES THE GRIND LONGER AND LAMER Its simply not enjoyable to be basically free points for a superior ship and skill level player repeatedly. Its now to the point where my Premium has finally lapsed and im not going to re-new it any time soon. (sneaky price increase jsut happened anyway and at a time when our currency just got stronger against the USD! Premium is bread and butter for Wargaming, and no doubt ill miss its bonus, as its often required to make extra credits just to break even considering the ridiculous service fee at X and some other levels. Wargaming has lost the plot as far as business model goes. Its a game focus on that. GAME History bleh read gone Fancy Period dances watched Gone.. While these are nice to haves, this asia server has a minuscule amount of player out of the literally several Billion + humans in its region. Its products are over priced. Its match making service is clearly broken in so many ways to the point i took the time to see for myself and pay closer attention so its "not all in my head or biased noting only really bad games and checking and using that as a basis" not so. Decrease the price point, make it up in sales. Focus on game play, stronger emphasis on game play tactics training, - Rather than this is that and this does that the end... The player base is noob and floundering failing gets salted on and leaves bye potential sales and hello unhappy potential customer not wanting to play because they think they suck... Not worth my time typing any more of this novel GG captains I agree with the title o7
