    Greyhound on AppleTV

    I personally thought it was better than Midway...in that it kept to one battle and stuck with it. As a naval nerd, I thought Midway was a cinematic treat in between all the fighting and the events I recognized from my personal reading. As a film though, it was a mess - more of a fancy-pants documentary than a serviceable film. If you didn't care about the events from the get-go, then the film would've either been confusing or boring - a collection of guys talking with BOOM BOOM here and there. Greyhound, despite the lack of characterization, seemingly did the job better by just focusing on one mission. It threw you into the action and reveled in the spectacle of fighting U-boats in the Atlantic. It wasn't really confusing in terms of plot - Survive the crossing to England.

    Azur Lane discussion thread!

    I'm actually impressed that Manjuu remembered HMS Howe (and hopefully HMS Anson). They weren't as famous as their earlier sisters and were more workhorse battleships - less glory overall, but they did their jobs well.

    Can War Gaming endorse a new Warship movie ?

    Holy crap! You were in the film?! Just wanna say that it was a fantastic watch. You all did amazing and working with Tom Hanks must've been a dream. XX I definitely think a partnership could be still possible. Maybe there could be a re-release in theaters once everything normalizes, which could be ample room for cross-promotion. If not, the DVD release (I'm sure it will be on its way) could open opportunities for cross-promotion between the game and the film. Heck! Submarines are on their way, so that is a perfect opportunity to really play around with the destroyers vs subs dynamic. It could serve a few things: -Tie the game with the film like WG did with Dunkirk -Be a fun game-mode in general -Could serve as a teaching lesson about the Battle of the Atlantic, possibly with a collection on the side. -Could be a fun way to teach people how to play destroyers in regards to anti-submarine warfare. The models are in the game anyways, so that could be a cheap port overall.

    I quite liked it. It was some straight-up good action on the high seas as Tom Hanks and his men attempted to survive the U-boat onslaught. The characterization of the men was very bare-bones, but I thought it was fine because the action was the bigger draw of the film. If anything, it was like Dunkirk or older war films like Tora! Tora! Tora! - the event overtaking the characters. This wasn't, for example, Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers - works where the characters were a very important component of the film. Something for folks to keep in mind is that the film is based off a book - The Good Shepherd by C.S. Forester of Horatio Hornblower fame. That is where Tom Hanks pulled a lot of his beats from...like, for example, Krause's devotion to his Christian faith.

    Are all T4 and below premiums worthless now?

    That is a fair assessment. WG seems to be mostly interested in mid tier and upper tier, which is evidenced by the amount of premiums in that area. Low tier is just a place for players to learn the basics and speed through...at least in WG's eyes.
  6. Yeah. I mean...this is ultimately just a game. It may be frustrating to lose (or be on a string of losses), but this game isn't going to affect your life adversely or anything that extreme. It's best to be civil overall.

    Roma trolling is getting annoying

    It's quite nice for angling ships though. Roma trolls those guys hard. Angling is used to stop shells from being effective while Roma cuts right through them.

    The might of the Massachusetts

    Big Mamie is a beast! Great guns + good handling + secondaries galore = a formidable enemy.

    Tier VI ships do not belong in tier VIII matches

    I second the Arizona as well! She is very chunky and can tank damage very well, especially torpedoes. If you're on the lowest tier, then its obvious that you shouldn't charge with the big boys. Stay in the middle range and play support until the enemy really starts to lose. Then you can get assertive.
  10. To be fair, the game can't be full of "elite" players - there has to be a constant pool of casuals to keep the queues filled. League of Legends and MOBAs run on that mentality - there are the cream of the crop and the people who want to blow some steam off at the end of the day. Though I played in the Alpha, I'm more of the latter than the former. The only thing you can really do is improve your own personal game and help your team push the objectives.

    Dear WG, Don't Mess Subs Up

    I think a lot of people want to play submarines...and subs have to be limited per game. ...so that could the reason for your situation.
  12. Since CVs, BBs and CAs cannot attack submarines, which is obviously a problem, maybe they could have a consumable that would allow a ship to attack a submarine infrequently. I personally think a chance to summon a Catalina Flying Boat could be good, allowing them to strafe and assault submarines for a time.

    Played a few days of Subs and I lke it

    While I'm sure more will be added in the future, I find that there are a decent number of ways to counter submarines. Torpedoing folks underwater is definitely a skill, so most will probably opt for the surface. At the surface, the subs are very vulnerable to secondary batteries - even more than destroyers.

    Video on new subs

    Carriers were around since the old days...and believe me...they were worse back then . I didn't play through the submarine beta, so I'm kind of interesting playing with and against submarines. It's something new to add to the mix after all.

    Azur Lane discussion thread!

    Man...Azur Lane is going to get hit with a ton of updates and content. ...and this game isn't even that old. It's definitely impressive overall!
