    Where is the HMS Indomitable?

    Great Just freaking Great. I wanted a British tier 8 CV and I end up with a tier 6 CV. Thanks, WG....slow Clap!

    smolensk is a shame of this game

    I think I found your problem. If you cannot beat them join them.
  3. Is it just me or are French destroyers food (XP) for CV Commanders? I find them the easiest to send back to port playing any of my CVs. I like it as a CV Commander but I'm worried since I am grinding up the french destroyer line. I discovered they lack LR AA. Nice going WG....slow clap!

    Japanese Commander without unique trait

    Dude been there done that. You missed my point. Why can't Japan have a "Fuji Doe" unique commander?

    Premium Shop Price Decreases

    Yes, bring back the personal 15-minute deals!!!! I purchased two ships that weren't offered in the premium store. When WG offers a ship(s) that aren' for sale on from the premium store, usually players buy on impulse. I bet if WG offered Missouri, Musashi or Kronstadt for sale they would see sales.
  6. What's wrong with this picture? Japanese Commander has not a unique trait like other nations Commanders. So why?

    French CV line (hypothetical)

    WG where are we at on this??? The French Commander I picked up with SI will make a sweet CV build.

    Tier X coal ships

    It depends on what role you want to play. IJN Yoshino best suited Sniper. It's a CA; therefore, it hunts down CLs. Choice of 12K or 20K torps and she a fire starter for sure! (I own and enjoy her) U.S.S. Salem quote, "The first Tier X premium in the game, Salem plays almost exactly like her tech tree sister Des Moines, albeit with a tad more survivability at the trade-off of less utility. Captains familiar with the American heavy cruiser branch should adapt to Salem’s minor quirks fairly quickly." She has better heal than her sister ship, Des Monies. Her shortcomings are: lacks a spotter plane or fighter; a stock range of 15.8K (Since I own the Des Monies. If purchase her would be to add to my collection of ships.) K.R.L. Smolensk, She lacks armor, her max range was nerfed recently buy 2 Kilometers. ( I will be acquiring next)

    (WIP) ITALIAN CRUISER LINE

    They are unable to utilize the following normally associated with cruisers....... hydro, radar, DDFA which supports the division or team.

    (WIP) ITALIAN CRUISER LINE

    That's really isn't my main heartburn with the Italian cruiser line. See below: What is the "Mission/purpose of cruisers? "Cruisers are often called upon to hunt down enemy destroyers, perform quick response duties, escort and protect merchant shipping or larger vessels like battleships and aircraft carriers from various threats, provide an additional layer of defense." I cannot find the purpose of having them if they offer nothing more than a new addition. A shiny ship line that has no mission statement. WG has to look at this in a broader picture. Multi-tasking!!! As it stands the Italian line will be last to pick for Scenario, Rank Battles, Clan Battles. So I going grind Italian cruiser line only to have them as port queens??? They will not be the "Go to CL" you or I pick in its current state. This smoke generator doesn't support the Division or team in random matches.

    (WIP) ITALIAN CRUISER LINE

    I initially posted this in the "Italian Cruiser" forum. I am not getting a lot of views and it does concern you, future Italian cruiser players. issues I have with the Italian cruisers, oh boy where do I start...... ♦ What is the "Mission/purpose of cruisers? "Cruisers are often called upon to hunt down enemy destroyers, perform quick response duties, escort and protect merchant shipping or larger vessels like battleships and aircraft carriers from various threats, provide an additional layer of defense." The RM Trento and Zara fail in that duty. Those ships were equipped with gimmicky smoke (25 secs) and choice between fighter or spotter plane. Yes, I understand that the Italian cruisers are "test ships" but released them to testers in this state...... shocked. Additionally, I wasted hours of my life..... grinding to try out the Italian cruisers. They are unable to utilize abilities associated with cruisers such as hydro, radar, DDFA. ♦ Semi-Armor Piercing (SAP) Shells? I'm not entirely sold on this direction using SAP rounds. First off, I personally witnessed the Kiev (Russian destroyer) bounced SAP ammo from Zara's 203mm shells. Moreover, unlike HE rounds I was unable to disable the ship's modules, i.e. propulsion. The Duca d'Aosta or Abruzzi never had that problem. If WG is deadset using SAP rounds the rate of fire of the 203mm rounds will be to be lowered from 15 secs to 10 secs. Mainly because of Italian line is unable to have damage of time (DOT) that other cruisers enjoy. All is not lost here! The Roma would benefit using SAP over HE.
