    Friesland 40mm/70 1948: The Ultimate AA Gun?

    The OTO-Breda 40mm guns, oddly enough, started off as license-built copies of this gun.

    What happened to all of the mods?

    With this update, WG managed to break MMM. It could be fixed, but the developer has moved on to a new--and vastly improved--clean-sheet version of the software. (It's also at least partially broken, but there's a patch in place for it, and WG is supposedly going to fix what they broke for the next major update. Depending on how they fix it, that may make the old version of MMM work again, or it may not. We'll see.
  3. Yeah, doubtful. That ship stopped being viable a year ago with the whole new CV crapfest. It doesn't really matter how good the guns are when you have no AA and there's 3 enemy carriers.
  4. Yeah, not so much. You just need to go back to George V's mother and Nicholas II's mother, who were sisters. They were first cousins.
  5. You're kidding, right? A stealth nerf would only piss off the people that own it. The "whinebase" wouldn't know about it and would therefore continue to... well... y'know.

    Tracking Results and Stats

    You need MXStat. Nifty program. It mines the game's log files and your stored replays and pulls out a LOT more data than the game website or the third-party sites can pull. Then you can export it to Excel and fold/spindle/mutilate it however you like.
  7. Reading comprehension isn't your strong point, is it?

    Dr_Venture returns to WoWS

    Welcome back, shipwreck! Glad you upgraded Dr. Girlfriend, and good to see you're having fun with the Italian cruisers. They're very much underappreciated, but wicked nasty in the right hands.

    Custom Desk Pad - USS Atlanta in New York City

    That's really damned cool. Thanks for sharing!
  10. Got mine on Saturday night. Played it once in co-op to get the crate, then put it back on the shelf. Doubt I’ll wind up using it much for the foreseeable future. I will say, though, that the ones I’ve run into on the high seas have been relatively tough nuts to crack- even good shot placement with Thunderer is rarely getting me the big numbers.
  11. Shave moar, you ape. And get that back hair, too - you’ll never be able to kite with that sticking out of your collar!
  12. It's not adjusted to their speed, it's calibrated in speed vice time. Nomogram classic, you've got two time scales. Above the line, there's 5-10-15 etc., and those are seconds of time-of-flight for a target moving 30 kts. In other words, if you think the target is moving at 30 kts and there's 10 seconds of shell TOF to reach the target's range, you put the 10 mark on your target and get a hit. Below the line there's a second set of markings, set for 20 kts. You do the same thing with the lower scale if you think the target is going 20 kts. Both of these scales adjust automatically to whatever range you're looking at, and do nothing based on the target you've got locked. Nomogram modern, the only difference is that there's no time scales presented. The marks instead represent angular deflection based on theoretical estimated target speed. If you think the target is going 10 kts, then you put the 10 mark on him and fire. If you think he's going 30 kts, then you put the 30 marker on him and fire. There is no information gained from whatever your locked target is doing, just your best estimate of what he's doing.
  13. Friesland was the last ship on the list to show up for me. I finished out my collection of banned ships with Fujin, Benham, and Enterprise before Friesland popped up. Oddly enough, Enterprise was the only ship to come up in a gift box rather than a super container. Every other ship was a super container (indicating re-roll), but Enterprise came up in one of the free gift boxes from a daily shipment or a mission completion or something, not in a purchased container, and it didn’t appear to be a re-roll.

    Premium Ship Review #135 - Gorizia

    No, it's not especially true in this case. It's especially--and spectacularly--untrue in this case. If it was only available through completing directive 3, I'd go with your explanation. Thing is, it's been in the premium shop with a big incentive to buy it for the past few weeks, and based on the numbers of them that we've seen in game, there's a lot of people that bought it to make the PR grind easier. If anything, I'd say that the performance is a bit low right now. The play style pushed by this type of grindy event tends to make people take stupid risks to get those citadels or kills, and that puts a bit of a drag on some of the stat metrics. Once the grind is over and all the burned out folks stop playing it, you're likely to see the stats climb.

    Premium Ship Review #135 - Gorizia

    If getting hung up on that one word is going to help you reject objective reality in favor of your own made up alternative, then by all means- continue.
