  1. Songs You Like By Singers You Can't Stand

    I hate everything rush has ever done, to the point that I have the first 10 seconds of all of their songs memorised so I can change the channel when they menace my cars radio. but geddy lee does have 1 good song.
  2. Huh. Is this a change from the British cruisers engines? I was under the impression that while acceleration is through the roof the deceleration was lacking. Messing around in the training room I counted 20 or so seconds for a Cleveland to go from flank speed to zero when thrown into reverse, but 25 seconds for the similar Edinburgh to do the same. Am I missing something? Edit: Also, for the sake of getting a better feel for these compared to the existing ships, can you add Jervis to the Tier VII list? If it beats Sims at turning or even comes close that would give me a better idea of how these maneuver in context.
  3. 360 degree turret rotation?

    This is great, shows that turrets for L and J classes could rotate 180 in theory. Wonder about Daring?
  4. 360 degree turret rotation?

    @CAPTMUDDXX You are not quite getting me. I think this is a boon for balancing. I am 100% ok with it. I am not complaining. I just want to know if this was a capability of the real ships.
  5. 360 degree turret rotation?

    With the new dev blog it was revealed that the x turret of Jervis, along with all the turrets of the lightning, Jutland, and Daring will be able to rotate 360 degrees. As far as balance goes I think this is great. But could these ships really do that? I know that in game the Haida (and I'd imagine Cossak) have 360 degree rotation on their B mounts, but Navweaps says that they have +160/-160 degrees of train. For that mount ( i think the mk XIX dual 120mm mount off the top of my head) was it able to rotate 360 but disabled fron firing in the deadzone, or could it just not rotate 360 degrees? Just want to see if anyone has answers on this.
  6. Premium Ship Review #108: T-61

    Isnt it sad that alarm bells were being raised about this ships power literal months ago and noone at WG said 'huh, we should take a look at that before it goes on sale.' It makes me wonder if it is part of the company policy to release objectively better boats every once in a while. Just to keep interest up or maybe nudge the meta.

  8. Premium Ship Review #105: HMCS Haida

    Angry youtuber review soon?
  9. The Great Martian War

    There was a tabletop game called 'all quiet on the martian front' based on 'the war of the worlds' that acts as a continuation of the original story. It is basically dead, but it had a lot of promise and was basically tailor made for my tastes. If nothing else, it has a fantastic rulebook with tons of great worldbuilding.
  10. The Humblebrag. Is Daring good? Is Daring fun? Is Daring good fun? And is Daring absolutely dependent on a 14 pt captain to be playable?
  11. Dispite being woefully unprepared for this, I must continue establishing a tradition. Wonder what the best ship for this challenge could be... I thought that it might be the Monhagan, but the torps simply do too much damage and reload too slow. current wisdom is Kaga or Derzki. both seem like very good contenders. Now everyone's favorite seal clubbing machine the Clemson is a large improvement... honestly, if you can't be bothered to spend 10 minutes on getting a Derpzki it may be the way to go. torps reload fast, hit weakly, and the fact that you can dump full spreads to either side spreads the love. Maybe Wickes is good too. Will Carl get a Crate? As of 8/1, no, but he is building a strategy.
  12. personally, I'd agree with you too. I don't drive in the IJN DD's so I can't speak with too much authority, but the 1/4 pen with IFHE allows you to turn off your brain and just vomit HE and get results on the whole range of targets in your spread. add that to the very high fire rate that they have and they seem rather powerful despite their maneuverability and speed being the pits. if it was 1/5 they'd be able to do something to all targets with HE and no IFHE, would have more effectiveness against light cruisers with IFHE. also, I feel like that would not be so powerful as to require the Akizuki's maneuverability to be nerfed. however, I must express my pessimism about WG's balance right now. I'm sure that the way that they buffed akizuki's guns was to say "hey, we already have a 1/4 pen rule. lets just dump that in instead of taking the 10 minutes to make a new 1/5 pen rule." I hope that they add in that sort of rule, but I don't think that they will.
  13. That is my hope. it allows the 4.5 inch guns to work against BB Superstructures and DD's on its own, but also allows them to beat cruiser plating if IFHE is taken. this means that it isn't dependent on IFHE to work, but that IFHE also provides a advantage that would hopefully make a person pause and consider if they want that over, say, RPF or other tier 3 skills. I think the odds are against this, but that would be ideal.
  14. Incorrect. 1/4 means that it is blocked by any armor greater than or equal to 1/4 the shell caliber. Same for 1/5, same for 1/6. What this means is that shells that you think may penetrate actually wont. 2 examples. US light crusiers are 152mm gunned. 152/6 is 25.4 If the guns penned 1/6 their caliber, that would mean that those guns should pen all the plating of tier 7 bbs naturally. They dont though, because the rule actuall reads that a plate 25mm and greater will stop it. This applies harshly to the 114mm guns of the tier 9 and 10 british dds, because 114/6 is 19, meaning the plating of all the destroyers in T10 darings mm spread are unable to be penned without IFHE. Worse yet, daring CANNOT do damage with HE to ANY BBs in its matchmaking spread without IFHE.
