  1. Having been to Iwo Jima island, my uncle was KIA there 1 March, 1945 - we cannot forget the USS Texas as she supported my uncle's division - The Spearhead - 5th MARDiv - from landing through inland battles. USS Texas left Iwo Jima on 7 March for Ulithi Island to prepare for Okinawa. Great pictures though and much appreciated. You should add the firing assignments for the BBs involved in supporting Iwo Jima. It is fascinating to see the zones assigned.

    Yoshino or Georgia

    If your play style is more passive and you do not feel comfortable pushing into the fray, go Yoshino. It is a fire starting machine with 20k torps which can be used as area denial. It can be citadeled from almost all angles by BB guns so you need to keep using the WASD keys. If you love brawling, using secondaries and pushing in to destroy enemies - go Georgia. With its speed boost and set up with secondary specialization, you can really hurt other ships with your first salvo and follow up secondairies. If you are able, get both and try each play style. Both are fun and have success and failures based upon how the battles work out.

    What is the worse grind - PR or Benham?

    I was able to grind out the Benham as I play every day anyway and now really enjoy the ship. The PR grind is not too bad through the first two Directives, the third gets very much more difficult and time consuming while when I looked at the 5th, I had to say wth? Even as a player who enjoys grinding out snowflakes and missions, this was too incredible to believe. Now I have to make the decision to drop dubs on the boosts and can I still make it. In summary, the PR grind is much more difficult by a magnitude not by an additive. Without boosts, not possible in my thoughts.....

    Tier 10 Santa Crate rewards... oh dear

    I am not disappointed in the rewards but in the manner of how WoWS has lessened the rewards from the previous year. To me, it would have been better for them to start a little lower and build year over year instead of starting higher and diminishing them. The method they chose appears to say to the player base that you are not as important to us as you were last year. While I do not believe that to be the case, appearances can determine impressions.......

    Full Pumpkin Event Statistics

    As a Pumpkin - had a great time and played as many battles as I could over the weekend - over 70. There were a quite a few battles where there were 2 or three Pumpkins per team at the beginning. Towards the end, I was alone in many battles - it was getting late.... Well done to Fem and the WG staff for setting up a very nice event. Congrats to all those who sunk a Pumpkin - fly your flag proudly!

    Halloween filth isn’t fair

    I did see this a number of times but since our div had not seen them, figured that was what they were doing. I play the Angler and we waited until I had reloaded then went for the portal. I was able to blind torp and get a lot of hits. Even with BB 90% reduction, dot damage and then our BBs punished them when their shields went down. Wasn't easy but they did not get any of our Filth.....

    Am I missing something?

    If you are running any mod packs, delete them and run clean to see if this continues. If you are not running them, it may need a clean reinstall...... hope not though
