  1. With the very nice WoWs allowance for free adjustment of ship modifications and captain skills, I thought I would re-evaluate some of my selections. When it comes to BB's, I have always chosen ASM1 for slot 2. But because the Bismarck's secondary's are so powerful, I was considering SBM2. What do you think? Which would be best? My gut tells me go with SBM. I have a 14 point captain so I would include Manual Fire Control, Advanced Fire Training, and Basic Fire Training.
  2. I think the OP has left the building.
  3. Thanks for the reminder! I did not know this.
  4. Wow. This explains a lot.
  5. I'm in a similar situation. Not really interested in clan play. On the other hand, I'd like to be able to use this new oil mechanic. Are there any clans that allow one to join just to take advantage of the oil/bonuses? Disregard...answered my own question. Search is a wonderful thing!
  6. I had a very good weekend. MM seems to be working better than ever. I had some of my best games, even in losing efforts. Very close, very fun.
  7. On the plus side, WG is always running some sort of special. Suggest you try the operations as you can earn 10 point captains there pretty easily. Welcome to the community.
  8. With the upcoming IFHE and smoke changes, I can see this happening.
  9. Nice information Edgecase. Thank you. +1
  10. I felt the same way Nightrider in my experience. I was mad because I had killed him, albeit by accident and his action. But as Violin's mentioned, ship happens. I'm not going to lose sleep over it. Only a game. I will work my way back to green soon enough.
  11. Excellent point and I would agree with you if one fired torps knowing that there was a friendly between (or potentially sail between) oneself and the intended target. That's obvious. But what if one is in the lead and a teammate fires his torpedoes from behind. The "honorable" thing to do would be to swerve to avoid...even if it meant taking one out of a firing position (or exposing one to incoming fire). In a way, that rewards the dummy who launched his torpedoes from behind his teammate, expecting them to move out of the way. The "saltier" response could be to actively steer into those friendly torps, take the friendly fire (or death), to "pink punish" the dummy that fired from behind his teammates.
  12. I'm liking the new graphics. Cool video Kaybe. Thanks WG!
  13. So I'm playing co-op. I'm in a Bismarck. My teammate is in a Fletcher. It's down to the last enemy BB which is on the far side of the map. I'm closer than the Fletcher as we both "bow-on" head straight for the BB. We are running parallel to each other, the Fletcher on my right. He is very low health, almost dead, from earlier battles. Though I was closer initially, the Fletcher's better speed has allowed him to just start to overtake me as we approach the enemy BB. The Fletcher the turns left to position himself for a torpedo run on the enemy but in doing so, crosses in front of my bow. I plowed into him and in doing so, the collision/scraping damage kills him. So I am pink :( While this is my first pink, I'm not so upset about this since I think I did nothing wrong. However I started to think that players might purposely try to kill themselves in ways to punish/pinkify other players. For example, purposely steering into friendly torps. Have any seen anything like this?
  14. Me too (ships would not come out of games even after games ended. I tried to restart the game hoping that would fix. It didn't. Couldn't even load to start/port, Hope I don't lose progress.
