    This Puerto Rico grind ...

    It kind of reminds me of the Homefront game mode in WoT. Super-hyped, beautifully-done with new mechanics and tons of new gameplay elements that tons of people get jazzed about only to find out that it's a complete waste of time unless you throw money at it hand over fist. I'm honestly not the least bit shocked over this.

    German BB Buffs Incoming!

    Ontop of this, Bayern gets a fantasy modernized hull and a fantasy 20,000shp that allow her to move at a fantasy 25 knots, 4 knots faster than she could historically move. Because the Standards are stuck at 21 knots because history but the Bayern isn't, even though historically she was just as slow as the Standards...

    German BB Buffs Incoming!

    When they were originally added to the game they were sold to us as brawlers to counter the Japanese ranged play. It was stupid but that was how Wargaming envisioned them. I guess they realized it was stupid and made the Germans actual brawlers and just forgot the Standards existed without any actual identity except slow HE pinatas.

    German BB Buffs Incoming!

    They were better brawlers than the ships that proceeded them which were also supposed to be brawlers.. This basically just completely obsoleted every US BB before tier 8 in one move. GG, Wargaming. Now is about the time when we need to see the notice that the US BBs below tier 8 are getting supercruiser accuracy figures so they at least maintain that over the Germans. But that won't happen.

    German BB Buffs Incoming!

    Their gunnery, while not great, was at least still better than the Germans. Now that's not even going to be the case anymore. So what will they have? Slow, meh dispersion, slow reload, slow turret traverse, 25mm everywhere because in this game historical advantages are weaknesses.. Range is capped even with spotters for "historical" reasons, meh penetration, meh damage, no secondaries worth speaking of, no citadel-proof armor.. Meh AA, meh health pools, meh maneuverability, meh torpedo defense.. They've routinely been stripped of their "brawler" identity, which was a stupid identity to give them in the first place given their speed, range, reload and armor layout. Now it just seems like a joke.

    Nomogram Crosshair is gone?

    Not all boomers. The last few years of the boomers haven't retired yet so they haven't gotten the entitlements that they've spent a lifetime paying into. Honestly though, it's the Gen Xrs that're really getting screwed. Everyone's so concerned with Boomers, Millennials and Zoomers that they forget the Gen Xers even exist. We're the ones that're going to be cheated out of our benefits and entitlements well before the Millennials.
  9. I was playing the tier 7 operation with a Helena and I got up alongside the Lexington that spawns and was, at a range of like 4km, shoving 6" superheavy shells into his waterline amidships only to see the enormous majority of my rounds eaten by the torpedo bulge. It was actually kind of hilarious. I really wish I'd gotten a screenshot of it.

    Benches on French BBs?

    It's called a range dial or a concentration dial. And yeah, it's to allow other ships in the battle line to see the range of the target you're hitting. The US standards had them too even after their 1920s modernizations and well into the 1930s. One of those cool, funky ideas, really.

    Helena — American Tier VII cruiser.

    Boise is ahistorically slow. Nobody seems to know why it's so slow and Wargaming never squawked about why it's so slow. Some theorized that it's to represent the fact that NDJ was in pretty bad disrepair later on in her career, but that wouldn't apply to Boise in her late-war trim or in NDJ when she was freshly sold. So yeah, I agree. Boise needs a speed buff.

    HSF has returned to the Premium Shop

    Okay, thanks. I've got Thea on the HSF Graf Spee but I wasn't sure if there was one that'd work on US ships. Appreciate it!

    Thanks for the heads up. I don't even have a Yamato but free is free.

    HSF has returned to the Premium Shop

    Having never seen HSF and not being familiar with the characters, can any of them be used on American ships?
  15. Mainz still needs 27mm extremities.
