Heyo!

Fem,

Heyo

At this point Karma serves as a virtual pat on the back, its a way for you to recognise a player or vent your frustrations in a means that is not intrusive.

Currently, the only impact of the Karma score is the unlocking of additional reports/commendations a player is able to give on a daily basis.

We acknowledge that the Karma system is flawed and limited at the moment, however given it is a system easy enough to manipulate, we did not feel it was appropriate to tie rewards to Karma levels at this time.

Whether we one day add more meaning to this system is anyone's guess but at the moment it is a lower priority.

I would not put to much weighing or worry into this number at this time.

Just dropping back in again, I'm keeping a close eye on this thread.

Please ensure this discussion remains constructive and free from insults between one another.

We have previously stated we will not be making individual changes to premium ships after their release and that they would only be impacted by game wide mechanics changes.

The release of a new line, does not constitute this. The existing IT premiums are balanced according to these features including their HE armament. While IFHE is not appropriate for the incoming IT CA line, that does not mean these commanders are useless as they are still efficient on the Cruisers they were originally trained on.

Given these facts, there is not grounds for compensation in this case.

Regarding the battle viability of the existing IT Premiums, as with all ships, we will keep an eye on their battle performance and stats and if changes need to be made we will address it at that time.

Fem,

Captains,

Each time we release a ship, there are several options or packages for players to decide between depending on their needs.

As indicated by others, there is a package available for ~$17 which contains the ship and not much else. The $150 package indicated by OP comes with many additional items and benefits. The total value of the package at full cost would be $200, thus why it is indicated to be on sale from $200.

We encourage players to research options available when purchasing packages and pick what suits their needs and budget.

Fem,

WG staff

Heyo,

I'm going to start by addressing all of your questions:

We are consistently looking at MM as a whole and things we can do to improve it. We made a change in 8.7 with MM which say limitations placed on the number of times withing 20 games that a player will be be the lowest tier ship. Details of that change can be found: https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/game-updates/update-087-french-destroyers-part-2/#game-mechanics

While we consistently look at MM and do introduce changes and fixes, some of the commonly requested changes to MM: +/-1 MM, and Skill based MM, are simply aspects we are not interested in pursuing for a multitude of reasons.

It is something we are looking into. Currently a new player is prompted with the Game Tutorials section within the game when they begin playing....

Pretty much yes.

After a patch is released, drops typically go down for 24-48 hours to be re-configured for the new content.

That is all that is meant by that.

Sound mod xml question

Comment

Hi, do you working with SoundModCreator or handle editing xml file?

Heyo Team!

I can confirm this is not working as intended and credit compensation is a bug.

Please see the new PSA on the matter:

Fem,

Commanders,

At the moment, the compensation for the reacquisition of the premium cruiser Genova is being compensated in credits, not doubloons as intended. This bug will be fixed soon, after which all affected players will be compensated in doubloons in addition to the credits already received.

We sincerely apologize and thank you for your understanding.

It is...?

Heyo Captains,

Please standby, we're investigating the situation at present.

I'll be back when I have an update for you.

Fem,

She is not downgraded, it was simply a reclassification based on her existing features.

No changes were made to any of her game play characteristics. Furthermore, several ships which are coal/steel ships who have the same characteristics as the Salem were also reclassified into the new Special Ships category. @LittleWhiteMouse went through and cataloged them for reference:

I'm sorry but in this case, you are simply misinformed/mistaken.

Fem,

In case anyone else is looking:

Lots of interesting reads in there!

In this case, credits.

Once per update / Twitch Drops season.

We have the full list of NA CCs available here:

Many of which have amazing content on both Twitch and other platforms, I would recommend checking them out too!

Fem,

Yes, accounts are valid for all testing cycles after being received.

No date yet, keep an eye on the news sections.

That seems like a bug, since this feature wasn't removed.

The only wat go get commander XP in advance is to get elite XP/Free XP.

Update 0.8.9: Italian Cruisers

Comment

Accuracy is determined by dispersion parameters and sigma.

Dispersion defines borders (ellipse) where the shell can land.
Sigma determines probabilities of landing: max dispersion per range combined with sigma determines the shape of the dispersion curve and probabilities of shell landing into area.
So, for example, if we have a sigma value of 100 - shells will always be in the center, since most shells are landing within 3 sigmas, and you have 97 left of improbable space.
The process of determining accuracy
First shell is dispersed with normal/gaussian distribution. Then, if the shell is falling in in the sigma boundaries - just it's position is determined. If the shell is outside sigma boundaries - it's rerolled with uniform distribution among the dispersion ellipse.
Maybe, an easier explanation would be that sigma determines how gaussian distibution will be, compared to uniform, since with sigma value of zero you have full u...
