  1. Ah mis-read, thought you wanted to add 3 more floods zones and the same damage as currently :/
  2. I just wish they'd give those poor old chaps a little bit more health. Even with intervention of my DFAA I've only managed to save a handful of them :(
  3. http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Flooding TBH if they were to do this I would hope you'd see a serious nerf in either damage or duration. Having 4 flooding compartments at once with the current damage setup? Would mean a 2.668% reduction of your health pool per second. Granted you'd not have much health to begin with after 4 torpedos but with how fast your health would trickle down... Man you'd have to be quick on the repair button
  4. Hey at least you get the captain, more important then the 24 hours premium if you ask me
  5. PS Medway Queen The remarkable success and bravery of the Medway Queen’s crew resulted in the captain, Lieutenant A.T. Cook, and Sub-lieutenant J.D. Graves receiving the Distinguished Service Cross, and several other crewmembers receiving awards as well. While Halton notes the statistics are unreliable, it’s estimated the Medway Queen rescued 7,000 men and shot down three enemy aircraft. “Medway Queen made more trips than most other ships. For a small ship lightly armed she did remarkably well,” Halton said.

  6. Yeah tht's what made me hold off purchasing, wanted to clarify it first. Gonna be unable to play for the next week anyway so figure best off not to spend the Money... even though I really, really, really want those single tube launchers on a DD :(
  7. hmmm... New Ship class added to the game. Torpedo Boat Tender. Send out squads of Torpedo boats from your main ship much like Aircraft Carrier controls, dump your torpedos and have them return to ship to rearm.
  8. I was thinking about picking it up mainly for the extra crates for the collection. Long as your top 5 on team and win Dynamo you get a crate if I read right, or is that a one time mission?
  9. I like it except for the Fleur-de-lis. It'll look good parked next to my Oleg.
  10. Radiogically compromised in the sense that it has trace elements in it. So pure steel with no traces is going to do better as a radiation detector then a steel that has small traces of it. Take for instance the black market for vintage alcohol. Anything that is supposedly been bottled and sealed before the nuclear testing age in the late 40's and 50's will have contents free of Cesium-137. All those nuclear tests covered everything, including the soil where wine grapes, rye, barley etc are grown. Organic too, so Ivory, even layers of paint, if you get into the core, lack of Cesium-137 will tell you if it's pre 1940-1950 era.
  11. And I can't believe I forgot this one.
  12. The whole "medieval army vs. Modern army, what would happen" scenario is what really drew me into it. Not gratuitous in it's fan service (Most of the time). I'd suggest Drifters which is another historical type show (characters at least, plot and everything else not so much) Worse comes to worse throw me a PM, I'll load up my list from crunchyroll and try to pick out titles similar that you might enjoy.
  13. Wonder if there will be a difference between firing inside the smoke as opposed to firing through it IE behind the smoke cloud, shooting through it and at your target. In the smoke is the most beneficial of course, but behind it has it's merits. However problem with that is you get seen by spotter planes, and most times they're not visible on the map or spotted so it adds in a bit of uncertainty. Instead of laying smoke, sitting in smoke, now lay the smoke, reverse out of it or circle around behind it type of playstyle.
  14. Yup, it's fun to do in the faster firing ships. Major drawback is you can't lock on to the one you're kiting and this has a negative impact on your dispersion. Fair tradeoff I'd say. Miss more but not be seen while you fire.
