Skarhabek posted a topic in General Discussionswell, the recent premium ship is a OP compared to the tech tree. just look at Masasauce and Z-39, masasauce is like NC+Bismarck minus hydro. and Z-39 is basically T8 ship placed in T7. and not counting the new T9 and T10 sheep. without more basa-basi, i will just explain the border that WG should not cross. 1. DONT MAKE OP DD or CV >> Saipan and early 3x5 Torpedo Bomber Grape Zeppelin is the main example how Smelly is the P2W. Kaga and Enterpat is a bit OP but situational >> Lo Yang with hydro? use it in ranked and got auto win...... in random its also deadly 2. dont make OP ship that can destroy DD easily >> most of WoWs mode is beacon cap i mean domination, the DD carry the very important role in this mode. Belfast, Lo Yang and USS Black is the worst example of this kind. Lolanta is borderline but the good thing is, she is weak and dont have smoke. >> memeouri BB with radar is also silly and stupid. please dont add any BB with radar.... its basicaly immune to CV and DD lol 3. ship that OP againts surface ship should have weaker AA and vice versa or have MASSIVE DISADVANTAGE againts some type of ship >> Mushasi is OP because its basically Yamato in T9.... but its AA is so crap that CV can counter it. mutsu is also example of look OP but balanced. >> belfast is total OP! not only it can radar DD, smoke firing burn BB, but also have INSANE AA.... >> Lolanta is basically balanced, because its weak againts another cruiser and battleship but stronk againts CV and DD >> Hood is basically strong againt CV with its AADF and still have BB characteristic.... but it wasnt feel as strong as same tier BB. 4. i recommend TO MAKE OP P2W DD/CV/CRUISER that is specialized at destroy BB >> too much BB..... BB have too much firepower and durability... and CV that counter them is become sheet. look at Baguetta BB..... they turn murica AA into total joke (Republique, Lyon, Bretagne). CA & DD AADF buff into 3x and 4x...... moar AA Cruiser..... >> Ashashio is cool addition to game, its weak againts other ship but VERY Stronk againts BB >> BRING BACK KITAKAMI ! with same deep water torpedo as asashio but its range is only 12km. also give it repair party and smoke :V >> change Hydro into Repair Party for Grape Zeppelin (give Kaga too) and BUFF Kaga and GZ Secondary base into 10km :V >> add premium DD with Radar JAMMER for 15 sec, but cannt use smoke and have high concealment. there is too much gunboat... we need more DD with normal Deep water torpedo
Well there I was top tier in my Bismark, full HP and then a single attack from the SBD-5's rom the newly introduce CV Enterprise and wham x2 fires and get this 69,850 damage from 9 bomb strikes! Game over for me. P2W or what gg WG well played.
xalt posted a topic in General DiscussionsSo perhaps you've heard that you can get amongst the 2 most OP ships in the game, AKA the so-called WG "Russia Bias", the Gremy and Nikolai, with Santa's presents. And perhaps you were wondering what were the odds of you getting them by spamming a few presents(AKA gambling). Well, having gotten every single available premium through the Santa present system, I feel I can shed some light on how the process actually works. But be forewarned, if you really want the Gremy and Nikolai(at least reliably), you'll have to spent upwards of $200USD, up to a maximum of about $400(this depends highly on the number premiums you already have, but not their tiers. But to understand how this works, you have to first know the hidden "rules" of the santa game. Firstly, you will never receive a premium you already have unless you roll the same ship twice in the same "batch". I can very confidently say this because over 100 presents opened, I never got a ship I already owned, whereas some people who have only opened 20 or 10 presents but bought and opened them in large "batches" received duplicates. This is okay if you get a duplicate of a t7 or t8 ship as you get a large amount of dubloons in payout, but otherwise its quite a waste of money to get duplicate of low tier ships e.g. Ishizuchi, which results in only a small number of dubloons while still resetting your Pseudo-random distribution counter(see below). The game seems to check what ships on the pool of 20(see below) you own every time you buy/accept presents. Therefore, it is far more advisable to buy presents in small groups, preferably single, opening it, then washing and repeating(this sounds tedious doesn't really take that long). Secondly, the engine uses a pseudo-random distribution for the probability that you will receive a premium ship. What is PRD? It basically means that you have a counter on your account for each type of present. This counter increases each time you fail to get a premium (i.e. opening camo/flags) and resets to zero each time you get a premium. The higher your counter, the more likely you will get a premium on your next present. How do I know this? The frequency of getting a premium ship was too "constrained", most of the time I got 1 premium ever 4-6 presents(captain and admiral) opened. In a true random distribution, you will get long periods without any premiums, and periods where you get 3-4 premiums in quick succession. In my experience, the "gap" between each premium was never less than 1, mostly 3 or 4, and never more than 5. So you can reasonably expect to get a premium every roughly 5 presents opened or so(or about $15 USD per premium for captain's presents). This is very likely PRD as it is a method that game developers often use to prevent players(gamblers?) from getting disenchanted and quitting from having a long patch of bad "luck", or jealousy at other player's "luck". There's no real "luck", though, only hard mathematics. Thirdly, for captain's presents, which I mostly used, each time I rolled a premium ship, the engine is much more likely to give you a ship of a lower "tier" out of the pool of available premium. E.g. my first premium was emden, then texas, then marblehead, then anshan, arizona, etc etc, through to tier 7 and t8. I highly suspect that the 2 "Russia Bias" premiums are considered as "tier 9" for this santa game as I got them only right at the end, with Lo Yang in between. What this means is that if you already have many or all of the low tier premiums, buying captain's presents is a pretty good idea. I would NOT recommend admirals presents for most players who already have t8 premiums as, from what I understand from other players' accounts, the PRD odds for getting a premium with the admiral present is about the same as captain, but the only difference is that it is more likely to give you a higher tier ship, which is pointless if you already have t8 and t7 premiums. The pool of ships available for santa is given on https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/specials-and-events/santas-wanted/ . Ignore the part where it lists premiums that are listed under each present, from what I gather it is possible to get every available ship with every available present, with the possible exception of Prinz Eugen. So to sum it up, if you already have many low/mid-tier premiums listed on the list of 20, e.g. Emden, Texas, Marblehead, Anshan, etc, then it's worthwhile to play captain's presents, but buy them in small batches, preferably one-by-one. If you have neither high nor low-tier, it may be worthwhile to buy Admiral's presents. This also means that you should check what premiums your friend already before you buy presents for them. I did not extensively test commander's presents(the $1USD ones) as I bought 10 of them initially and did not get a single premium out of the batch. In hindsight, it may still be a decent investment though it is tedious to buy and open them in small batches.
