    Fires - how are they calculated?

    Yes, it all depends on how long the fire is allowed to burn, or how long the target lives after the fire starts. During some testing of secondary effectiveness, I found that the average fire burns for less than 2k damage. However, that focused on fires started by secondaries. That type of fire could be significantly shorter than a normal shell hit fire, because the use of secondaries requires the targets be in close to each other, where things get lethal pretty quickly - potentially limiting the average burn time on fires. Fires from secondary hits are vastly overrated. However, at longer distances where ships don't die quite so fast, fires could potentially burn for much longer. . . but again, effective use of Damage Control will limit the amount of damage they inflict. At tier 2 though, things die pretty quick, so I expect it would have the same problem as the secondary fires.
  2. Nah, as all all solo player I like seeing these super-divs on the other team. My favorite tactic is to make sure I kill just one of them, so has to sit and watch doing nothing the rest of the game. LOL
  3. I hate all the virtue signaling going on in this thread. “It sucks to win by a lot!” Please. As much whining as goes on here about stats, most of you people love it.

    Excess Credits

    Hunter Camos! That camo is so sexy! Also, the ability to use a permanent camo, but replace it's benefits with those of another camo in your inventory. (You use up the other camo). Basically paying to make any camo you use, look like a permanent camo you own for that ship.

    Montana or Missouri

    Missouri will never be for sale again. Also, due to the recent U.S. BB buff, in terms of combat effectiveness, Iowa is probably superior to Missouri at this point.

    Rediscovering middle tiers

    Congrats. Although a lot of us figured out a long time ago that Tiers 5-7 are the most fun. I like 8 too... but it is a tough Tier.

    F der Grobe secondaries

    If you really want a secondaries boat, get Massachusetts. I think I saw something about her being on sale recently?

    Manual Secondaries Targeting

    No change. It just makes secondaries fire at that target over another one if they have a choice.

    Iowa better than Missouri?

    No I think it's live.

    To Many Duplicates

    This time I’m just letting the collection complete in its own and seeing how it goes.

    Name the ship you think is worthless....

    I have the same, and yess Massachusetts is better. But Gascogne is a great ship and it’s nice to have some variety.

    Name the ship you think is worthless....

    Yeah, I regret picking up Kronshtadt. Skipped the Roma due to bad press.

    Iowa better than Missouri?

    Yeah, definitely going to have to re-buy Iowa and try her out again. I guess it will give me something to do with one of those extra 19 point US captains I have lying around.

    Name the ship you think is worthless....

    Not sure on some of those others. . . New York should definitely get replaced by Nevada. Just leave Texas as the premium and only NY class ship in the game.

    What are you talking about? Gascogne rocks! Give her a tooled-up secondary build and she will bring the pain. She's about 90% as good as Massachusetts.
