@YouSatInGum

I think I remember this from the past. I haven’t experienced it in a while though - can you provide a replay or clip next time it happens to you?

I don’t doubt that it can happen, but I can’t get any action down without either a repeatable description or a tangible example.

Ask around if you can and see if you can get me a replay.

Generally I would say "yes, a SC is worth 8.3 million credits".
Even if you get x100 det flags, those x100 flags are worth something like 11 million credits (math off the top of my head...)
The FXP, Dubs, Ships, and Premium Signals you can get are well worth it.
If you get x50 camos that are +100% xp, it might not be, but generally I'd say it's worth it :)

I can't comment on when the patches will be released, I'm afraid.

As I understand it there should be no trouble.
If you complete the collection and earn another, you will get the mission when 0.10.10 is released, as per the article :)

Yeah brother just leave it next time…

I play ships so I don’t HAVE to think about politics. If someone tried to explain to me a political meme In game I’d say, “nah I’m good”.


The forums stay a-political.

Might as well violate forum rules to do so, eh?

How about, “It’s a political meme - google it”.

“Hey, I know - let’s politically explain a politics meme”.

“Won’t that violate forum rules about no politics”?

”yes, but we’ll just point out that it’s likely to violate forum rules - so everyone will know that we knew this was against forum rules”.

”Based”.

Ahaaaa you skunked me. I graciously accept your superiority :)

They really shouldn’t be though, in my opinion. Think of secondaries more of “if you get trapped within my radius, a ticking clock starts for you because my dpm and fires per minute just went WAY up”. It’s not suppose to be a “whack-a-mole” tool.

Moving your entire life 1500 miles in a 20 foot truck is hardly a vacation.

They still do. Only Yamato and shiki over match the 32 mm bow of the ships you described.

in the future we will have two more battleships that can overmatched 32 mm with AP in the form of the super battleships, but for now it’s just Yamato and Shikishima.

And that’s just the thing, isn’t it?

Coop and Randoms currently share Naval Battles but do not have the same formats. It’s apples and oranges. I’m fully aware that this will cause discrepancies in Naval Battle competitions, but I have to fall back on the reality that Randoms is the primary game mode.

I understand that there are lots of PvE clans out there and I’m spending more time in the PvE parts fo the forums to hear our grievances that sound like they may have fallen by the wayside. I honestly love to problem-solve so I’ve started inquiries on behalf of some of those issues. In regards to Naval Battles, I suspect the reality will be that BXP remains the most common metric.

Guys PLEASE do not ping Ev1n for day-to-day questions. That’s why I am here and Maredraco when I’m gone.

the PBY was put in place as a placeholder to ensure that all vessels had some form of ASW when subs hit randoms for testing. It is not permanent.

We figured you’d rather have that rather than nothing at all ;)

There is no need to ping Ev1n, guys. He has an enormous amount on his plate.

I can look a little further in depth to this question and see what answers I can share. Like I posted yesterday, I will be out of office until Monday while I move to Texas, so please bare with me for at least that duration. Having a conversation about large-scale questions requires conversation across multiple servers and multiple time-zones, so it doesn’t happen quickly :)

Hello, commanders!

I will be out of the office and unable to respond to much until Sunday, October 18. I am in the process of relocating to Austin, Texas.

it is perfectly fine to ping me in a topic, but it’s less likely that I will be able to respond until then. Until then, Maredraco or Parcenautico Will be doing their best to help out in my stead.

See you Sunday!

While I find it funny - let’s not make posts just for a meme. Reddit exists for that

I really don’t think I am…

Look, maybe I should put it this way:

NB’s for ribbons or damage heavily favor certain styles of ship, while BXP does not. It could legitimately alter the Randoms meta more than is acceptable if BXP is not the most common variant. A Shimakaze who x3 solo caps and lands 5 torpedoes for 2 kills has zero chance of earning a NB threshold based on ribbons, but arguably did FAR more for his team than a Harugumo who accrued x500 ribbons by spamming HE at a Krem he mostly can’t pen and doing 140k damage overall. BXP is a more consistent indicator of how effective you were than an arbitrary number like ribbons or even damage.

That being said, it is a perfectly fine point to bring up that Coop-focused clans will struggle to achieve the required base xp levels to compete properly in Randoms.

My personal answer on that point is that Naval Battles are clan-to-clan somewhat-passive competition. As Random...

I am of the understanding, though have not had it confirmed, that BXP is the standard and variety was introduced to spice it up a bit and make it different. That difference was sometimes ribbons and sometimes damage, but BXP is the standard.


Base XP is a great indicator of a player’s involvement in a match and is harder to “game” than the other two. For example:

If Naval Battles are damage: people can bring flame-throwers and farm fires.

If the Naval battles are ribbons, people can spam secondary ships or Dakka Dakka’s like the Smolensk. Easy peasy lemon-squeezy.

Base XP is much more standardized - unless you’re a CV and then you’re at a disadvantage.

I don’t have an answer as to why Naval Battles seem to have been more often BXP rather than ribbons or damage. In my experience it has always been skewed that way.

I have already brought this up in our global QnA to see if we can come to a solution as quickly as possible.

Nothing happens overnight, so I’m going to have to ask for your patience on this. :)
