    BBs are useless now?

    But you didn't win. So it doesn't matter if you lost by 800 points or by 10 health on the last enemy ship when the timer ran out, you still lost. I'm not pointing at you and saying you did badly or that it was your fault or anything, that was definitely a well-played game, I'm just saying that other classes probably would've been more influential with a lot less work.

    This is exactly what I described above. Yeah you turned big numbers but you lost the game. Other classes seem to be significantly better at actually influencing the outcome of a game. BBs are good at generating big numbers.
  3. Wargaming: You can't have West Virginia 1944 because the mid-tier AA would be too much. Dutch ships: *Exist*.

    BBs are probably the best at getting big numbers but CVs are still the king of actually influencing games. This can be seen by the fact that a below-average player can have an above-average win rate in the class, which has been pointed out time and time and time again. DDs follow distantly in their ability to actually influence a game, but they're so ridiculously vulnerable in their current state that it actually takes good play to do so. Meanwhile, CVs are just like "haha airplen go brrrr"...
  5. So basically.. "Damn we got called out on being lazy so we're going to change our story to 'this ship is 100% fictional' instead.." Yeah that's a Wargaming.. And now this ship is even more ridiculous..

    New ship announced - USS Congress

    The Germans mistakenly thought that the "Dreadnought" in what the British were calling the "Dreadnought armored cruiser" just meant "all-uniform primary battery", which it did, but it also meant "parity with contemporary battleship", which was HMS Dreadnought. Which is why HMS Invincible, the first "dreadnought armored cruiser", shared it's primary battery with Dreadnought. The HMS Invincible was true to the British concept of "dreadnought armored cruiser" and considering it was their concept I think they get to decide what it actually is, not someone who thought they knew what it was and got it wrong.

    Yamato vs Dreadnought

    At a disadvantage, yes. But less of a disadvantage than not knowing where your enemy is at all. Being able to track your enemy without them knowing they're being tracked is a pretty big advantage in and of itself. It's just not much good if you have no way to do anything with that information.

    Yamato vs Dreadnought

    Except the 300km+ range part, which no RADAR had back then.

    Yamato vs Dreadnought

    Apparently USN CVs weren't as well-hidden as we thought they were. I had recently heard about the IJN using the US Navy's own recently-developed radio IFF frequency to track US aircraft back to their ships at ranges out to or greater than 300km.. Problem was, by the time the IJN figured out how to do this they had nothing left to strike back with. Imagine if they'd been able to do this while they still had a functioning navy.. Here's a source talking about it.

    Isn't a town or city. It's a CDP. In the time this ship would've existed Congress, AZ would've just been referred to as an "unincorporated area" and the navy wouldn't have named a ship after an unincorporated area with no legal standing, let alone any real local government or anything.
  11. It didn't for cruisers.. Cruisers were all named after cities. All 6 planned large cruisers were named after territories. Alaska, Guam and Hawaii were committed to steel. Puerto Rico has already been used for another pseudo-Alaska monstrosity. That leaves Samoa and Philippines. Both of which would've been perfectly legitimate names for this pseudo-Alaska monstrosity.

    It has to have 0 AA though. It can't threaten the game's true god class.

    And this'll be what, tier 4? Print it. Let's go.

    And give it the Iwaki Alpha's gun handling and dispersion. Hilarity ensues.

    Which is why the "dreadnought armored cruiser" concept that lead to the Invincibles (which lead to the battlecruiser concept) was a separate concept. It DID require perity in caliber with contemporary battleships, which all had uniform primary batteries. That's where the "dreadnought" part of "dreadnought armored cruiser" comes in.
