    Air Supply Containers

    Ahhh, so the containers will come out in 0.8.1? That's good to hear, I'm glad I'm not missing out. Thanks!

    Air Supply Containers

    Hey everyone! Recently I took a small break from playing WoWS, but I was hooked in by the Fly! Strike! Win! event. Now I'm not a CV player and I'm not really interested in getting any of the RN carriers, or the Crowns and Florins, but I am looking forward to the new Naval Aviation collection (mainly for the different camouflage colours). Obviously to start collecting I have to receive an item from the Air Supply Container, and this is where my problem starts - how do I get one? The portal articles state I can get them from completing directives but I don't see them listed as the rewards. In fact, I don't see any missions or stages that reward one of these containers. Am I missing something? Thanks

    Slow-Boat Destroyers in the mid-tiers

    When I'm playing in a DD, sometimes I'll deliberately drive slowly so I can see where friendly ships (including other destroyers) are heading off to, I'll wait to see which caps the enemy DDs are taking, or see where the radar cruisers are going. I'll try to spot and take caps where and when I'm confident I won't be radared and insta-killed.

    Why the Inflated XP prices?

    Damn, ninja'd by the black cat. But yeah, you're missing a few upgrades on the way to the Izumo and I'd recommend you play the Amagi to reduce the amount of free xp you need to spend. It's a good ship, fast with heavy firepower.
  5. It isn't in the game quite yet, but I've visited HMAS Vampire (Daring-class DD) three times now. That's the only vintage warship I've seen over 1000 tonnes and not a submarine. When I visit Britain I'll definitely see HMS Belfast, and hopefully I'll visit Hawaii and see Missouri and Arizona.

    Narai: Killing the King

    The last 5* game I had on Narai, I was using the King George V while firing AP. Those broadsides at close range made quick work of the cruisers (at least 3 one-shot kills). When the King was spotted I took off a third of his hp with one salvo, then chased him down around the island after dealing with the enemy Missouri. I shot him again, reduced him to under 50% hp, smacked his cruiser escort out of the way with another salvo, then finished him off with multiple citadel penetrations at close range. The mobility, firepower and versatility of the KGV does quite well, even though the AA is lacking.

    The Coo of Boom Flag

    I'd love more flags. I feel like that one is very appropriate for Carriers. It's past midnight here and I have exams, so if I think of something useful I'll update my post. Congrats to everyone who got the Poopy Pigeon flag.

    Premium Ship PREVIEW: HMS Hood

    Her secondary's suck moose balls. You're really betraying your heritage here, Mouse. An excellent review. I don't know if I'll buy the Hood, but I wan to get those special skins just in case I nab one from a crate or something. I'm just really pumped for Royal Navy battleships now.

    Premium Ship Review: Alabama

    Nice write up, LWM! The SoDak class is probably one of the best value-for-money battleships used during WWII, along with the Kongou- and King George V-class battleships. Very tempting, even though I don't play American battleships and already have three premium USN BBs. You know, I was actually hoping that the ST version would be the Alabama and the normal premium version the Massachusetts. That would be a little more interesting than just Alabama ST and Alabama. Cheerios.
  10. For me, it has to be 'Be Prepared' from the Lion King. I don't know, I just think that Scar and I have similar personalities (although I'm nicer... I hope). And the song is pretty cool.
