    Bad Snow

    We already have the effect with water on deck. They just need to apply some reflective (specular) effects to the snow so it doesn't look like cocaine.

    Bad Snow

    It depends on how heavy (wet) the snow is. Muzzle blasts are hot too, so they'll cause melting. But the issue is the reflective quality of snow. Snow reflects between approximately 75% to 95% of light shone upon it. Depending on the snow texture, this can be almost like glass (cold, hard packed snow) to heavily refracted (fresh, loose snow). But in any case, the snow we have in game is matte with no reflective qualities at all, so it looks like baking soda or flour.

    Bad Snow

    Look, I appreciate what the art department was trying to do by placing snow on the ships. But it's reflective qualities are all wrong. It looks like someone sprinkled baking soda from the galley all over the deck. It doesn't look like snow.

    Do CVs have a counter?

    No, they don't. When you're playing a CV, the skill of the enemy players (read: targets) is largely irrelevant. The challenge in a CV is a race against the clock to deliver as much damage as possible to the most important targets. Who's sailing what doesn't matter.

    Premium ships

    Lazo is a stock Chapayev-class cruiser hull, shoved down a tier and stripped of its Surveillance Radar consumable. It is an unremarkable premium; a workhorse, playing almost identically to the tier VII tech tree ship, Shchors. So if you enjoyed Shchors oh-so much that you want a premium version of her, go for Lazo. Otherwise, skip.

    Any Good DD Black players, I need input.

    I prefer Black over Neustrashimy, not that either DD is lacking. Black's ability to "scatter the roaches" is more interesting, in my opinion. Neustrashimy, by contrast, is just a solid overall DD with good staying power.
  7. They had to give it better ballistics than Cleveland and creeping up on Baltimore territory. What we have in game isn't an Atlanta-class.

    Oh, well there you go. :) (I was understandably a bit checked out at the time, what with the rebellion and what have you... )

    New Sub changes for 11.6

    I've put in a lot of time hunting subs. If your destroyer gameplay is good, I suggest taking out the mid-to-high tier British destroyers and giving it a try. HMS Jervis (tier VII), HMCS Haida (tier VII), HMS Lightning (tier VIII) and Cossack (tier VIII) are all great ships to cut your teeth on sub hunting with their long duration hydros. Keep an eye out for tell tale spoor of submarines (minimap spottings, single fired torpedoes, sonar ping markers). Once you find one within your area that's exposed enough to afford chasing them down, activate Hydroacoustic Search and make a bee line towards them. Cossack, Haida and Lightning will out-spot most subs on the surface. Jervis can out-spot some but not all. Once the sub is at periscope depth, the window between them spotting you and your Hydroacoustic Search picking them up is minuscule. Begin dropping depth charges once your 500m away. Unless the sub is at full health, a single stick of bombs will be enough for any of these destroyers to sink their target. But double drop just to be sure. For battleships, it's a little trickier, but still doable. The important thing here is to learn the cut-off on submarine torpedo homing and to frustrate their attempts to dumb-fire you. I must stress that a good submarine player (not just a competent one), will make dodging torpedoes untenable for a battleship, so be careful.

    New Sub changes for 11.6

    If Submarines maintain their present energy retention (80% of 4/4 speed on the surface), Balao's rate of turn will change from 5.3º/s to 6.4º/s. That's a HUUUUGE buff.

    Canada Day Disappointment

    The green leaf wasn't made standard until September of 1944. Before then, many individual Royal Canadian ships had maple leafs of some description on their funnels but it wasn't standardized.

    At least it's better than last year.
  13. Yeah, I applied the maximum bonus I could interpret and I should have been more conservative. I was taking it as Focus Fire reducing the reload time by 50%, rather than increasing the rate of fire by 50%. There's a world of difference there (2x vs 1.5x). Lemme adjust my numbers in the OP.
  14. Datamining will give the base value, but you can also check in game. Watch the ticks floating over incoming aircraft. They'll come in multiples of the ship's base AA damage value. For cruisers, this is normally 4x the base tick rate damage. So if your low-tier cruiser does 5 damage per tick, you should expect to see 20 damage intervals popping up overtop of the aircraft as they fly in. Once you activate focus fire, this usually drops to 3x the base damage tick, but the numbers are generated more quickly (so 15 to follow up my example from before but at a quicker rate). (alternatively, you can take the in-port value, multiply it by 2 and divide by 7 then round towards the nearest whole number).

    Premium ships

    2022, May: Atlantico's construction did not award any secondary ships. 2021, December: Marlborough's construction awarded Dreadnought (tier III battleship) and Repulse (tier VI battleship). 2021, August: De Zeven Provincien's construction did not award any secondary ships. 2021, April: ZF-6's construction did not award any secondary ships. 2020, December: Hizen's construction awarded Tachibana (tier II destroyer) and Yahagi (tier V cruiser). 2020, September: Anchorage's construction did not award any secondary ships. 2020, June: Odin's construction awarded Graf Spee (tier VI German cruiser). 2019, December: Puerto Rico's construction awarded Gorizia (tier VII cruiser). Secondary ships don't come with every dockyard event, but they're regular enough to keep an eye out for them. Our next Dockyard event is another chance at Puerto Rico this late-summer / Fall.
