Weekend Spree, 20-22 October 2023.

Ensign Cthulhu

Recommended Posts

Finally completed my long-term plan for 2023, which was to train a 21 point commander for every nation in the game. 

For this, I must thank Wargaming for the following development decisions:

1) The decision to offer a 19 point Commonwealth Commander for the winning, shortening the Commonwealth grind from 14-21 to 19-21 (which I had enough spare ECXP to do almost at once).

2) The decision to modify the Supercontainers in such a way as to put 75,000 ECXP lots in them as a potential prize (I got a huge boost from these). 


Played a few games in the Cuniberti (Italian T8 tech tree DD) which had previously sucked for me, and did surprisingly well. It might be time to return to this ship.

Well, not a lot of COOP.  Very little as there were all sorts of "Weekend things" to do.  Played Random Ops in the evenings.  Nothing else. 

I'm not working on anything anymore:  just playing.

Viewed Twitch streams of both @Lord_Zath and @Ensign Cthulhu.

Played enough to finish the "Spanish Cruiser Challenges" mission-chain.
Posted about doing so, in different ways for each place I mentioned it.

Posted in various topics of the DevStrike forums.

Performed the sad duty of up-rooting an invasive tree (a Wild Cherry sapling, if I've identified it correctly) that sprouted and grew upwards inside the ground already occupied by a tall variaition of a blueberry bush that was on our property when my Wife and I bought our home.
The duty was sad because it had been allowed to grow for too long before I noticed its activity.
Essentially, it choked the blueberry bush by entwining tightly with it, to the extent that it was no longer feasible to separate & rescue the blueberry.
So, today I removed both and consigned their remains to destruction.

Over the winter I can perform some research to determine if blueberry bushes can survive in NH's climate outdoors while potted instead of planted in-ground.
If the answer is "no", then I'll have to select another spot on our property to plant a replacement blueberry bush.
(And do a better job of monitoring its site and health.)

Nothing much, grind through daily mission, grinded PTS, "watched" kots stream which I have no interested at all.

Also had a day trip to a friend's house playing with cats. Much more fun and engaging than grinding wows.

Spent some time on the PTS.  FWIW, I didn't see much difference with the "new" asymmetric battle AI prioritization.  I played both BBs and CA/Ls and still had a much harder time in cruisers.  On the NA server finished a couple of missions (KOTS, North Pole, Trafalagar.)
