    Armada: Constellation

    I agree with Lord_Magus, at least someone else is outraged that WG gave Constellation the wrong main battery guns. They gave her 16"/45 Mk 5 from the Colorado rather than the more powerful 16"/50 Mk2 that were actually made for her, but they did the same thing for Kansas and Minnesota, so I am not surprised but very disappointed. There are a lot of more subtle ways to balance a ship rather than blatantly giving her the wrong main battery guns.

    Answer: Constellation was to be one of 6 Lexington class battlecruisers. IGN: OldGrognard Server: NA Can anyone answer why WG gave Constellation the 16"/45cal from the Colorado class rather than the more powerful 16"/50cal Mk 3 guns that were actually made and being mounted on her? It assume it is a deliberate debuff and not an oversight. They did the same thing to Kansas and Minnesota which should have the same 16"/50cal Mk 3 guns.

  4. I just ran into a bot operated Kitakami on the TST server, so it must be near release! And yes, it fired at the enemy with me right between, and low, the torps when right through my ship!

    Submarine Testing

    Oh, I see if read more closely, anti-sub aircraft for "some BBs and CAs". Which ones? I guess once the subs submerge the CV is just dependent on its little friends (DDs) assuming any are left.

    Submarine Testing

    Just the standard rockets and bombs? So the anti-sub aircraft are for BBs?

    Can CVs attack submerged subs?

    World of Warships Collectors Club

    Well WG gave me Master Collector for 350 ships! They must have counted the 4 Clan Battle Rentals that showed up in port today. Kind of Cheesy, but I would have gotten it legitimately next week anyway. Yeah!

    New Ship Annouced! - Constellation Battlecruiser

    Has anyone addressed why WG gave the Constellation 16"/45 mk 5 guns from the Colorado instead of the 16"/50 Mark 2 guns they were built with? And why do they list them as having 16"/45 Mk 7 guns. That is a contradiction as the 16" Mark 7 guns are 50 cal, so something is wrong no matter what fantasy paper universe WG is living in. No one in their right mind can think that the Lexington class would be refitted with either 16" mark 6 or 7 guns. They should have 16"/50 mark 2 guns with either Mark 5 or 12 AP shells. WG can play with sigmas and rof for balancing, but putting the wrong guns on a ship is a little too much.

That is a contradiction as the 16" Mark 7 guns are 50 cal, so something is wrong no matter what fantasy paper universe WG is living in. And of course, neither the 16" Mark 6 or 7 would be fitted on a South Dakota BB. I guess this same question/argument pertains to the Vermont.

    Compensation for downtime

    Very generous response. Goes along way to address the frustration of not being able to log on to complete a combat mission. Thank you WG.

    I know it is an April Fools joke but, Geoffrey Pyke, OldGrognard NA server. Can you imagine trying to maneuver a Lancaster to hit a moving ship with a Tall Boy
