Apparently Tirpitz is on sale tomorrow. As a tier 8 Premium Battleship it will be the bones of 50 quid.

Frankly I'll pass, at least for now.

Har har

The Atago is tier 8 and its at 40 Euros so I imagine the Tirpitz will be around the same.

So yeah, Tirpitz is in the store on a "special" for 60 euros. YOu get 30 days premium time and 2500 gold and some other crap with it.

IT HAS TORPEDOS!! They only have a 5km range. So good luck getting to ever use them.

I am mildly tempted as I was thinking of getting more premium time... but frankly I'll pass and just buy the premium time. Tier 8 is going to be infested with Tirpitz though for the weekend and beyond.

Just rub it in. It's not on the US or Asia server :(

I can't even see the Murmansk in the Asia shop or the T4 BB.

I've made an account on Asia to test my ping against the NA server

OK just back from playing World of Tirpitz. Around 66 battleships in the queue and other outrageous numbers, I wonder what happened.

Ok this thing is a BLATANT "buy this killer and then we will nerf it when we have your money". The armour is insane, only Yamatos are able to pen it any way reliably. Its guns are massive and fast firing. Its also very fast at 30 knots+. Cruisers cant keep up with this thing and forget about cruisers damaging the thing.

Its only weak armour is at the bow and the stern, and it has crap AA so apparently Carriers are having a lot of fun killing them in droves. So yeah, buy your unbalanced ship for the price of an AAA game, but realise its going to be nerfed at some point and its going to be nerfed HARD.

In other news the Myogi is a piece of crap. Cant hit a barn door.

Started up my Asia account - ping is half the US and there's a 12K player base in Aussie peak time. Bought a Murmansk and the Mikasa and got to level 5. The game is so much better - I'm sitting on 66% win rate as opposed to the US account where I''m at 39% due to having to learn the game and making a lot of mistakes along the way.

Mikasa is a beast in its tier - lots of fun to play and a tough little boat.

I'm also specialising IJN at the moment as my US account is just US and premium ships. I wish I'd tried IJN earlier although I still think Nicholas and NM are strong boats for their tiers.

Speaking of angry posts. the NA forums are in such and uproar about not making WG money by throwing the Tirpitz  at them that they are running a BS "competition" to give people a free ship. Its called the Marblehead and its a US cruiser.

http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/46223-na-will-not-get-tirpitz-or-mikasa-this-month-says-wg-despite-pax/page__st__180__pid__1151529#entry1151529

Quote
I want to step in and say that if my answer to the original message offended anyone, I apologize as that was most certainly not my intent. It was part of a much larger conversation, that had been ongoing for quite some time, so I think that it lacks a lot of context, and is more easily misunderstood.

That being said, we do not have plans to immediately sell the Tirpitz. It is a "rare" ship, so we wouldn't sell it right now and then again in a very short span of time - takes the rare factor away. We also recognize that you guys, our loyal customers, would really like something new. We have a PAX-specific ship coming up later this week. It was originally slated to be given out on the show floor to PAX attendees, but I made the case that our loyal forum-goers should have a chance to get one, even if they could not attend the show.

So beginning Friday, we will have a contest called PAX on the Forums. It's one of those destroy ships and use the player's name to spell a word things (like we did with FIREWORKS). EVERYONE who participates in the contest gets this ship with PAX camo. Just for the sake of clariry - it is not a Tirpitz. It is also not a ship we have sold before, so you get something for free that is new and different, and the PAX specific camo makes it unique to the NA server. I have permission to give out as many ships as there are people who participate, so no RNG involved (for once!) The full details will be announced on the portal on Friday.

I realize that it's not a Tirpitz, which is what you want RIGHT NOW. I know that giving you something else may or may not appease you in any way, but I do hope that it encourages you to think that we do care about our NA player base. The PAX specific camo was developed specifically for the NA region, so the devs invested time into making something for only our territory. There are more examples of NA specific things coming up in the future as well.

Hahaha... the Tirpitz a rare ship. They have such a sense of humour.

Is the legendary full torp spread from a teammate .5 km away really such a huge problem?  It has happened to me exactly once (and a couple times I had to do some quick thinking when my DD and a teammate DD surprised a battleship at close range from opposite directions, but that is different).  I suppose if you are in the front lines of a blob and hiding  DDs are trying to shoot through the gaps, this might be real, but I just never see many tks pop up  on the scoreboard at all.  And I also play with filthy non-westerners!

I've been torpedoed by my own side 4 times in the last week. 2 in the same game. And those were the ones that hit me, I've had as many near misses.

Anyway with judicious use of 50% xp signal flags I've sunk my Myogi and am now the owner of a Kongo

Hey look, we found why it's not a problem.

We're all familiar with the superior cooperation among Asian teams in gaming. That they're so much better able to work towards the goal instead of only personal glory. Leads to fewer "fuck you, you're in my way" situations.

So 0.41 is a 1550mb patch.  Ohhhhh, I see.

The detection range increase on IJN dds means that the 6km torps for Mutsuki are now impractical since you can't do a torp run by skimming the enemy's detection (though the 10km version isn't that much slower so it's not a huge nerf)

It just means that I might as well buy the tier 7 dd instead of sticking to Mutsuki as I had planned.  Ohhhhh, I see.

Wargaming.net community teams are in full swing all around the globe to prepare exciting events for you, be it in the virtual world or at various interesting places in Europe and further afield. We also cannot wait to announce a long-awaited and very promising concept of Ranked Battles, which some of you have already tested on the Public Test server.
The rest of the community will have the chance to get involved in Ranked Battles on the day of release!

Thank you for being part of World of Warships' great community and rest assured that this voyage has just begun. Stay tuned for more information, keep dominating the high seas and…

Hopefully release means a full account merge so that my free xp in WoWP(not much) and WoT (a lot) will be available in WoWs.  I also have a small amount of gold that would be nice to have available in WoWs.

Turns out that there are no plans in the immediate future to have experience and gold sharing with the other two games.

When the season starts, does everyone start at rank 25?  Also, I am getting much better at using torps in a DD.  I'm now getting an average 6-8 hits per game and doing 50K+ damage.  I don't know if thats good or not but I can tell I'm getting better, which is a nice feeling since my win % is only 47%, with 47% loss and 6% draws.  The draws are really making it hard to get over 50% as 6% is about twice what I have in WoT.

Its much easier to get draws in this game than WOT. So many carriers think that sitting in a corner is good play

After 216 battles I have 51% win rate and 997 avg XP so I'm not doing too badly so far.

I have no idea about how the ranks are gonna go.

After 505 battles, I'm averaging 1355xp and 25004 damage per game.  I think the game is too young to determine whats "good" at this point but I'd like to know how I'm doing relative to the general player base.

Don't forget the players (of all ship types) who think leaving or ignoring the cap circle to chase that carrier , they contirbute to more than their fare share of draws.
