    IFHE All Night Long

    Excellent review as always. I am glad after several hours of review I came to pretty much the same conclusions. Except, I question Smolensk since I believe It will penetrate 27mm with IFHE, at least mine shows it does. As such that opens up all the cruisers except the midships of some of the big ones like Des Moines, Hindenburg, Alaska, Kronshtadt, etc. Please correct me if I am wrong. I am sorry, I was asking my question based on your initial article. I didn't see your answer on page 8 re Kharbarovsk. I know it is difficult to calculate fire starting rates as that also needs to factor the percentage of penetrations that have a chance to start a fire. IFHE will obviously have significantly more penetrations, but each with a lower fire chance and more direct damage that is harder to repair. Has anyone had time to actually test the results?

    World of Warships Collectors Club

    Two hundred fifty three as of today. Repurchased low tiers to qualify for the Elite Collector Emblem. I will probably sell off a lot of the sub tier 5 boats now. Too bad WG makes no incentive for people to play with their low tier boats.

    Premium Ship Review #136 - Puerto Rico

    Great review as always. I do wish to point out that my Puerto Rico has 6 options for upgrades in slot 2: Surveillance Radar Mod 1, Defensive Fire AA Mod 1, Damage Control System Mod 1, plus Hydoacoustic Search Mod 1, Stearing Gear Mod 1, and Propulsion Mod 1.
  4. I was unable to get Captain's Log book to open. I clicked on it and got the rotating ring symbol showing something was trying to open but it seemed to stay stuck in a loop.
  5. I received the "Error:Graphql Error:invoicefailed" as seen below when I tried to build the Paint Shop improvement in the Ship building Dock. Logged out, restarted game and received same error. Could build no more improvements and therefore could not complete the task in the time allotted.

    Italian cruiser mission drop chance?

    35 regular containers without a single mission. What a waste!

    What happened to our Karma rating/score?

    Does it periodically get reset. Mine was slowly rising, the suddenly it was 0 with no known negative comments.

    Italian cruiser mission drop chance?

    So far I have opened 25 regular cruiser containers with no missions. Got lucky on Genova and got it after 9.
  9. I received the week two mission from the code. Thanks. What is the link for the supercontainer/Belfast?
  10. I was having the same issues as others with it not accepting my password when I typed it in but it took the cut and paste.

    So I bought 20 of those stupid Royal Navy containers.

    Bought 40 crates, only got Tier 5 & 6 DDs. Seems other people are having better luck.

    CV rework twitch reactions

    I am really sorry they are dumbing down carrier play to make more people play it. It is a shame there will be no need for multiple squadron load outs, no coordinated multi squadron attacks, no scouting, no directing fighters to intercept other planes. No worry about loosing planes with an infinite number per carrier. I actually like the micromanagement. I does get kind of hectic at the upper levels. I guess I am in the extreme minority in my views and need to remember this is an Arcade game.

No worry about loosing planes with an infinite number per carrier. I actually like the micromanagement and the RTS style, even if it was a bit hectic. But, I guess I am in the extreme minority.

    Premium Ship Review: HMS Belfast

    I must be missing something. References keep being made about chances to start fires using HE. Does Belfast have HE or is she like Edinburgh and just have AP and can British AP start fires?
