    Leone in the Armory and Premium Shop

    Leone is likely/hopefully a taste of the Italian destroyer techtree, when it comes. So far, it shares similarities between European DDs and IJN DDs. But I can't help wonder, will Leone become the Aigle of the French DDs... Shares with both EU/IJN long range torpedos Shares with EU DDs weak torpedo alpha average ship speed Shares with IJN DDs long main battery reload smoke I believe the high tier Italian destroyers of the main tech tree will have the above traits, but will gain higher ship speeds. I think the standard Engine Boost will be dropped at around Tier VIII and replaced with Paolo's short-term Super Engine Boost. So I'm visualising at Tier X, a large hybrid gunboat. Fast, but bulky to manoeuvre. Poor concealment. Some 14km-ish torps with average damage and low speed. Strong guns but 10 second base reload. Standard smoke. And Super Engine Boost, to quickly close the distance to finish off a wounded DD or to be used to escape and disengage from radar cruisers. As for why Leone doesn't have SAP, can't say. It may just be the feature of cruisers and battleships. Paolo getting SAP doesn't necessarily set the standard for the mainline DDs. That ship is almost a cruiser.

    I see parachutes in the public test

    I'm sure there was an unspoken WG rule a few years back that prohibited showing living people in a battle. Something in order to keep the game open to all ages, or keep a certain video game rating. As an example, the hockey player animation from Lexington's Ovechkin camo is disabled in battle. And the sailors lining the deck of Puerto Rico's national camo similarly disappear in battle. So I would like to know what has moved the dev team to show little men dropping from an exploding plane into an extensive ocean to a sure death.

    📰 ST, Axis vs Allies

    Looks good so far. My suggestions to refine it in the future: Restricted SHIPS: Ships commissioned after the end of World War 2, e.g. Vanguard, Mikhail Kutuzov, Pan Asian ships, should be automatically ineligible to queue for this game mode Following WG's own decision, designs and incomplete ships such as Amagi remain ineligible To open opportunity and provider ever greater realism, both Tier VII and VIII ships permissible Separate GAME MODE and MATCHMAKER Axis vs Allies: Northern Theatre British, Soviet*, Pan European, Commonwealth**, French*** ships vs German and Italian Allies may bring an aircraft carrier in-lieu of one of their battleships Axis cannot use aircraft carriers - for obvious reasons Sample Match: Allies CV Implacable BB Richelieu BB KGV BB Nelson CL Edinburgh CL Belfast '43 CA Algerie DD Cossack DD Ognevoi DD Orkan DD Haida DD Minsk Axis BB Tirpitz BB Roma BB Vittorio Veneto BB Scharnhorst CA Admiral Hipper CA Prinz Eugen CA Zara CL Abruzzi DD Z-43 DD Z-35 DD TBA Italian DD TBA Italian Axis vs Allies: Pacific: Southern Theatre American, Commonwealth** ships vs Japanese One aircraft carrier per side British ships, despite considerable contribution in the Pacific theatre, should remain concentrated to the Northern Theatre to give both modes distinction Sample Match: Allies CV Enterprise BB North Carolina BB Alabama BB Colorado CA Baltimore CA New Orleans CL Cleveland CL Helena DD Kidd DD Benson DD Benson DD Mahan Axis CV Kaga BB Nagato BB Nagato BB Hyuga CA Atago CA Mogami CA Myoko CA ARP Haguro DD Kagero DD Asashio DD Yudachi DD Akatsuki DISCLAIMERS: Not necessarily impossible matchmaking. Note e.g. Benson that any listed ships can be duplicated. It doesn't have to be hyper autistic and impossible like the list suggests. * DD only ** Lack of ships mean Commonwealth can swing either way, preferably Pacific Theatre, again lack of appropriate Tier VII-VIII ships *** Yes, arguably Axis for the majority of the war, from a certain point of view. Realism aside, they're allies nonetheless. LOYALTY SYSTEM: Refer to the system WG introduced in the Sharks vs Eagles event Earn achievements e.g. Pacific Theatre Veteran (50+ victories in Axis vs Allies: Pacific Theatre mode) Examples: Earn points/tokens for loyalty to Axis or Allies 3 Axis or Allies points per victory 1 Axis or Allies point per loss/draw Spend above points in the Armory for permanent and disposable camos, special premium ships etc "Axis Avenger" disposable camo x1 = 1 point "Allied Vindicator" disposable camo x1 = 1 point Permanent camos mountable to any eligible Tier VII-VIII ship = 30 points Premium ship Tirpitz, Roma, Kaga, Alabama = 180 points Unique premium ships only obtainable by respective sides points, e.g. USN DD Duncan, IJN CA Mikuma, RN CV Indefatigable, FR DD Le Malin, RM BB Littorio, KM CA Blucher = 300 points

    The Key Battle: Even More Rewards!

    Uhh I'm not usually one to complain, but Wargaming those are the worst rewards for an event that I have ever seen! Can't believe the extensive amount of efforts the WG team went into designing and making those new arenas and ships. Why? There's nothing to GRIND for. Nothing unique, as for the captains well special commanders are a dime a dozen nowadays and aren't worth it unless they have a talent or improved commander skill. Infernal Permanent Camouflages: Over a year old, make ships its mounted on look identical, unremarkable bonuses compared to historical permanent camouflages Credits and Premium Time: Usually unnecessary for long term players Halloween disposable camouflages: You've got to be kidding me; some of the ugliest and oldest camos in this game Captains: Well I assume they have their own voice over judging by the video in this news, but it also shows in the same armory on the video that you can just purchase them instantly for 1500 doubloons... If that's all the rewards you can come up with then I've already made up my mind to not bother with this event, and just play the game normally. Why doesn't WG make engaging, interactive and rewarding events like the Go Navy! anymore...

    Black Friday or Christmas

    Hullo! Christmas may have passed, but maybe there is still some generosity left in the air for Lunar New Year containers? 😇

    Soo who is still staying in the SEA server?

    I challenge you to a duel.

    Black Friday or Christmas

    Oh well I am rather enjoying the Amalfi and learning their playstyle. I'm trying to collect the perma camos in the Armory for them.

    Black Friday or Christmas

    Most generous of you! Can I exchange Christmas containers for Italian containers?

    Black Friday or Christmas

    Just save for Christmas. You can buy the -B ships individually, don't need to gamble crates for them. If Black Sims/Scharnhorst/Alaska/Graf appeal to you buy as you need. Other than that the crates will just contain expendable camos, and don't we all have enough camos from the French and ongoing Italian event?

    Feedback Thread for Update 0.8.9

    They need heal. All of the line. Even if its only 1 charge, like Royal Navy DDs. With premium and Superintendent, that's 3 charges of heal. It's a selfish line, with no utility (hydro, radar, DFAA) to enhance your team. So capitalise on the selfishness, Wargaming. This line lacks concealment. Lacks armour. Lacks ability to fire over islands. Lacks range to stay safely at distance and dodge most incoming fire and torpedos. It may have smoke but that's more like a get out of jail free card. To turn around and disengage. You can use it offensively rarely because smoke penalty is around 9km on Amalfi, probably more on Venezia. Heal would give them more staying power. High alpha does not equal high DPM. I find doing damage with the cruisers is like chip damage. Like what I'd expect from an inaccurate BB firing from max distance. With heal at least I would have a chance of surviving a full 20 minute game. It won't be OP, Atago has proved that having heal below top tier can be a balanced tool.
  11. Wow you Indonesians really do have a bee in your bonnet about the Karel Doorman. Where can I read about this more? I thought there was never a confrontation.
