    British Commonwealth Destroyer Tech Tree

    Firstly many thanks for this proposal LWM. At some point we need a commonwealth line, we already have 3 premiums in the line ( Vampire, Perth and Haida) Not sure we could ever have a cruiser line up to tier 10 as at least the RAN post WW2 only focussed on DDs, frigates and yes CVs. There are many players I see at times when the US players are asleep on the server that I have got to know who are kiwis and aussies who im sure with our canadian friends and lovers of warships in general would jump at the chance of a commonwealth DD line. Also lets remember the RAN and RNZN fought from 1939 to 1945 in the atlantic, medit. and pacific with a proud history of success and tragic loss. It is difficult to see what a specialist anti sub. destroyer line would look like without experiencing what sub. play would be but you would think more effective sonar and early deployment of hedgehog depth charge launchers ( ie get them before other nations dds) would be essential. I also dont have a problem with ships being from the same class, I have a number of them eg leander, perth, KGV and DOY, hipper and prinz eugen etc. so dont know why people get so fussed. A ship is a ship with its own history and the ships proposed in the commmonwealth line and future premiums are all special ships with a place in the game. Well done LWM and good health

    British Commonwealth Destroyer Tech Tree

    Im hooked, HMAS Vendetta and HMAS Vampire Ive wanted in the game since I first played in closed beta. Also HMAS Canberra has wonderful but sad history in the Pacific in WW2. My only concern is that you called the line British Commonwealth, I know in early days the RAN had a number of british captains but it hurts, why not just call the line commonwealth from an Australian perspective, too many painful sporting memories. Also im hoping ( hence why i bought the ship) that the Freisland will have an active Anti Submarine role as that is what it was designed for.

    New Italian Line

    Well call me crazy but I like them and do well in them. Trento 23 Battles , 57% win rate average damage 32,300 , best damage 70,127 Zara 10 battles only, 70% win rate 34,000 damage, best 93,357 Amalfi 25 battles 52% win rate, 44,000 damage ave. , best 88,000 ( most of these pulled into tier 9 and 10 fights) I have no problem with using SAP rounds and by the time you get the tier 8 the shell velocity and accuracy of the guns means you can annoy any ship. Great DD hunters early game due to speed and SAP, but need to support your DD's and if BBs or heavy cruisers start focussing on you , pop smoke and live to fight another day. The smoke is a get out of jail card, not a sit in a shoot, go dark. Late game i play it like my Henry the 4th and Zao and chip away at the big guns. Even though the torps are slow that can be an advantage as it catches BBs unaware as they arrive way after you launch them. It is worth noting you wont rack up the damage like some cruisers but remember your primary function , that is DD elimination as a light cruiser you will do well. The ships also kite well in my opinion , one fight held off a push on my own being chased by 3 higher tier ships, using smoke torps and speed whilst the team stomped the other flank then came to support, just dont try and fight outnumbered by pushing in.

    Mouse's Super Quick Updated Review of Harekaze

    Just got it 24 hours ago, my mini mini review with the 100mm guns and running with no smoke but torp reload booster. Fun, Fun, Fun , latest example pulled into a tier 10 fight with 4 dds a side, im the only tier 8 on my team, win and I top scored , took on a tashkent and Z52 at seperate times, this thing is a freisland with torps

    Italian Cruisers: Branch Review

    Well i seem to be in the small minority here but I like the italian cruisers. I have tier 5 to tier 8, I agree that of the 4 the tier 7 and 8 are the better ships and everyone seems to be focussing on their disadvantages. here are some of the advantages. Tier 8 especially I have no problems with SAP in fact I can strip good damage off a Montana as an example. At tier 7 and even better at tier 8 the shell velocity increases so accuracy and damage/penetration increase. The ships whilst not the greatest at turning are quick and that speed is great for their early game primary role, shooting at DDs and supporting your DDs. The smoke is not to be used traditionally but instead is a get out of jail card. The torpedoes with their slow speed actually catch people out as they arrive unexpectedly. The one thing missing I believe for these cruisers is a consumerable for DD hunting , at least hydro. Mind you seeing that radar dish on the Freisland spinning around and I dont get radar on that ship makes no sense either. The italian cruisers are challenging but once you adapt to their playstyle they are enjoyable. Yes you wont rack up the damage of some other ships but every point of damage really hurts the opposition compared to fire damage.

    The three most beautiful ships in the game IMHO

    No. 1 Atago followed by Freisland . A BB should look like a heavyweight boxer, the warspite for me.
  7. MY favourite by far, Atago, one of my first premiums, 672 battles in random with 54% win rate, the one cruiser I actually want to be uptiered to tier 10 with its concealment, torps and guns My favourite tier 10 - Zao , with my 19 point yamamoto captain , special upgrade. My favourite DD - freisland, the perfect DD hunter, and I just love it when its a CV fight, My favourite BB - Yamato, i know its been powercreeped but the only non paper tier 10 genuine Super BB, with a close second shared by Warspite and Musachi. My other favourite ship is the Bayard, just fun to play win or lose. HMAS Perth would have been listed but havent played it for months so this might prompt me to sail her out of dry docks
  8. well if the OP was correct i'd have a win rate over 90% with the amount of money ive spent on this game, lol.

    Update 0.8.9 - Bugs Report

    Ironically a small patch was released tonight, and I then could not get into the armory again. Found that value had been changed by the patch back to auto so had to reset again to false for me tho be able to access the armory. God i hope this is not going to happen every patch.

    What's up with the Armory??

    I had this exact problem and support sent me this below, 1/ didnt work but 2/ did , Hello Commander, In order to solve the in-game browser problem please try the following: 1) Clear the in-game browser cache: - close the game; - proceed to the \World_of_Warships\profile\cef_cache - delete all the contents of the cef_cache folder. 2) In case the problem persists try this: - find the \World_of_Warships\res\engine_config.xml file in your game folder; - open it with Notepad; - find the following string: <hardwareAcceleration>auto</hardwareAcceleration> - change it to <hardwareAcceleration>false</hardwareAcceleration> - save changes, run the game and check if you are able to access the Armory and Inventory through the in-game browser. Tell us how it goes.
  12. Call me crazy but put your Zao captain in the Yahagi and I have a tier 5 CL that id happily put up against any tier 5 cruiser in game including my exeter. The yudachi is a DD that works well with your shima captain as I used torp acceleration, gives nasty surprises to the lower tiers with torp reload booster and fast long range torps. I have all the japanese premiums and once you learn their strengths and weaknesses I enjoy playing them all, something about the Japanese ships makes them interesting to play, I think they play a unique role in any fight. Also dont underestimate the Asashio's gun performance, its not just a limited torp boat, great spotter, you always get the first round away against other dds just dont go up against the gunboats at the higher tiers

    Genova compensation

    I agree they were very quick in identifying the issue and the compensation is generous, I just wanted the make sure they hadnt processed it yet as Ive had problems with 0.89 which this morning thanks to support is finally resolved. Hence my question, i can assume they havent sent a fix yet as no one has said they have.
