Niko approves? How does it happen? :ohmy:

 

But thanks for the compliment, anyway.

That sounds adorable, imagine if Wargaming decided to make an animation of that, the duo explaining Warship tactics, and how each one functions while also playing around, and messing with each other :o.

The Dunkerque review has been linked.  The Flint review will be linked soonish (I've sent the URL to Niko).

The Flint review was the largest to date (if you exclude the Lertboxes), totaling almost 7,000 words.  There was a lot to cover here, as she's argued to be one of the most overpowered ships in the game.  I didn't set out to disprove this, but rather to put it into context ... and that took a lot of explaining.

Psst...

 

All of these reviews are linked in the Wiki entry for each of the premium ships as well. ;)

 

We've been busy improving the premium ship pages the past couple of weeks before moving on to the regular tech lines.

Do we envision a time ever when premium, not-in-the-tree ships can simply be integrated as another tab within port? And do you know if the armor models for those ships will be available when the Ship Armor View option is enabled? tia

I'm of two minds on this.  On the one hand, it's nice to be able to see all of the information.  More info = good info.

On the other, I can imagine how people would feel when they look at a really nice ship and realize it's "not for them".  Overall, I would lean towards the former, though.

As an Atlanta driver, that's how I felt when I saw the specs of the Flint :(

Is it just me, or did the review for the Flint seem twice as long as normal?  Still a great read, but it just seemed like a larger in-depth review than usual.

It is longer than normal.  I'm not happy with it's length but there was a lot to cover.

  1. Reviewing the ship itself.
  2. Comparing it to the Atlanta.
  3. Addressing perceptions of it being overpowered.

 

The first part is obvious enough.  Writing a pure review of a tier 7 ship would normally take about 3000 to 3500 words in my usual format.  But with the politics surrounding the ship, I couldn't leave it just like that.  To many players, she's just an Atlanta.  To others, she's the most overpowered, unbalanced ship in the game.  So I added lines and sections to compare her directly to the Atlanta and reference the lead of her main-class.  This added a little, but not too much.  Where the bulk of the material comes is addressing her smoke generators.  Normally in one of my reviews, the options section is pretty trim.  Here you get a blob.  Similarly, my summary is also pretty trim.  Blob #2 populates that section.  Both are focused on addressing the smoke meta and people's perceptions of it being overpowered.

 

With the amount of time necessary to acquire this ship, I felt it important to clarify.  To me, few things would be as bad as someone throwing themselves at Ranked for the sole reason of trying to acquire this ship, putting in hundreds of hours of game play they might not be enjoying (and risking burn out) only to find that the ship isn't as powerful as they were led to believe.

As I already said I thought it was your best and most complete review yet, if people dont want to read it all they can skim it imo:)

In Japanese, it's called Mikakunin de Shinkoukei.  I watched it based on someone's review that described it having some interesting emotional depth.  Instead it was rather shallow and pandering to a younger male audience.  I was so disappointed.  But, being a sucker for a clever animation sequence, I nicked Kobeni's bouncy-dance from the intro sequence for my avatar.

Any chance for a Prinz Eugen review before she leaves the premium shop? I know it's basically a slightly worse Hipper, but it's always nice to hear your thoughts.
