    [humor?]antropomorphized ships are historically accurate

    And going by the smoke puffs in the aft I'm guessing last nights dinner was Beans, Cabbage, and Sauerkraut.

    Mixing it Up Monday - Your Fleet

    Whatever has a star next to it. Unless it's a Battleship. I've been severely cutting my BB play, not enjoying it as much as i used too.

    Fixing Carriers - Five Tweaks

    I always wondered what would happen if we made the carriers stealthier and buffed the turning radius and speed drop in a turn. Give'em them 10-12km detection range, but make the air groups have a range limit and a time limit. When they first launch they'll have full attack range but the longer in air the less distance from the carrier they'll be able to travel, boost makes the range drop faster, this will simulate fuel reserves for the aircraft until they eventually are forced to return to the carrier, refuel, re-arm and then take off again. If the planes are a long way out and returning? send up a new squad, but once the returning squad get's closer, suspend takeoff operations and prepare for the landing operations. Add a new upgrade of drop tanks that increases the fuel range and timing at the cost of some of the rockets/torps/bombs or if the planes can't lose 1 torp or 1 bomb (carries only one) make the aircraft speed slightly slower and turning radius wider.

    ANNOUNCING: Anchors Away Tour 2019

    And stuff like this is why my friends from other countries look at me funny. 2 of the trips are about 2 and a half hours drive for me into different states. However! The one IN my state? 6.5 hour drive lol. We need an impromptu one at the intrepid, just saying :) But I hope to make either the USS New Jersey or the Massachusetts... Heck maybe both? lol Long as the weather co-operates and my foot sprain heals fast enough that I can use the trips as an excuse for a Road Trip on my Motorcycle.

    Seattle is the worst T9 cruiser

    Slight increase in shell velocity, slight increase to turret traverse. I like the ship and can only say the major thing I can't stand are her firing angles while kiting away but not much you can do about that due to the superstructure.

      You think WOWS will release more British CA's?

      I hope so, but at the same time I'm not sure how they'd do it without just being accused of making "cookie cutter" ships just to get more money out of the playerbase.  Exeter brings something new and rivals the Furutaka in her armament.  You could add some County Class cruisers in as well, but at the same time, I don't know if there is enough variation from ship to ship to warrant multiple of that class.  (Honestly don't know, haven't done much research from ship to ship to see what variations there were between each one to form an opinion)

      Not unless the whole cruiser line would be split up like they have done with the US navy.

    what about the Yubari?

    I've been a pro-Yubari type since I got her, but I don't play her much. Retired it at 14 games and 0 losses and around a 49k avg damage. I enjoyed it, and it was nice having DFAA at that tier to blow off steam. I used to mainly take it out after getting annoyed and constantly harassed by carriers in my T4 Battleships lol. Anyway, if you'll forgive the copy past, and if you'll forgive the self promotion, I'll write to you what I've written to others who want to know what the Yubari is like.

    Where Would You Ship?

    Intrepid just for my own convenience but I think I could do the Buffalo and Mass trips. Long as the weather co-operated and I could ride my Motorcycle to them lol (Just dunno if my old truck would make that long of a trip anymore)

Donskoi on Russia... Slowly making my way to the tier X's lol
