  1. I personally love it when WG supports veteran groups and museums. I'll definitely make a donation.
  2. I mean...it's an arcade game, so they can tweak stats whenever they want. This isn't a historical simulator - something I think a lot of people might lose patience with because it will mean engagements can be lopsided and take hours to finish.

    Azur Lane discussion thread!

    I mean... the anime is ultimately made to tie into the game. This isn't some award-winning original work after all.

    Pretty much. Companies change their mind over time. Whether or not to include submarines is pretty minor on the scale, even by WG standards.

    Midway What-If: Wasp and Ranger instead of two other Yorktowns

    For the question, you can choose which Yorktown carrier remains, replacing the other two with the Ranger and Wasp. That includes specific crew members and squadrons connected with those carriers as well.

    Midway What-If: Wasp and Ranger instead of two other Yorktowns

    I find it interesting that these individual pilots could be the the small reasons why Midway was an American victory. One pilot was good enough at flying to allow planes to decimate a carrier strike force.
  7. DISCLAIMER: I am aware that this idea doesn't work really in the context of the historical timeline. However, this is more of a what-if...if everything fell in the way of this hypothetical scenario. To commemorate the arrival of the film Midway this coming weekend, I thought this would be an interesting theory to pose to the community here, mainly because I haven't seen this scenario asked on various forums. What if the USS Wasp and the USS Ranger replaced two of the Yorktowns that were at the Battle of Midway? Since they were considered technologically inferior to the Yorktowns, which is why they mainly operated in the Atlantic where the Germans were considered not as big of a threat in regards to naval strength, I kind of wonder whether they would've affected the results of Midway if they took the place of two Yorktown carriers. XX So what do you guys think? Here are some example questions to help with answers: -Would the battle still progress as planned with the Wasp and Ranger? -Would Japanese strategy have changed if these two carriers participated in the battle? -Could the Wasp and / or Ranger have survived the onslaught of Midway? -Would Wasp and Ranger be up to operating like a Yorktown-class carrier during the fight? Thanks!

    Experience Midway - The History Behind the Movie

    I think that is a good endorsement of it. I frankly wasn’t expecting a stirring Band of Brothers deconstruction on the war and this battle. I was expecting a popcorn blockbuster on a famous fight with some good action. I can’t wait to see it!

    Seems like most of the reviews say it is average. It is no Citizen Kane: it is more of a popcorn blockbuster, which is fine in my book.

    The channel History Buffs also did a reaction trailer and his was a bit more positive. Shows the divisive nature of history films.

    Midway (2019)

    I personally didn’t like the 1970s Midway film. Using footage from the real battle and other films made it very jarring to watch. At least this Midway film looks consistent.

    Definitely shows how divisive history films can get: The top was more negative and the bottom was more positive about the film and trailer.

    While I doubt the film is going to be accurate to the letter (that is documentary territory), they did collaborate with the Navy for the film: https://www.defense.gov/explore/story/Article/2001380/navy-helps-midway-film-crew-bring-battle-to-life/ Historians from the Naval History and Heritage Command helped writers and producers during script development and production. The goal was to make a movie that was as accurate as possible — give or take a few small Hollywood-style inconsistencies — and the historians who helped said they were impressed with the final product. "Despite some of the 'Hollywood' aspects, this is still the most realistic movie about naval combat ever made," said retired Navy Rear Adm. Sam Cox, the NHHC director who personally supported each phase of the historical review. "It does real credit to the courage and sacrifice of those who fought in the battle on both sides."

    Midway (2019)

    Yeah. Maybe they'll change them up a bit for the film's release, but Pearl Harbor also isn't really the focal point of the film as well. It might be done just to establish context for the whole thing. Realism is definitely nice, but it could also be restricting. Nolan's Dunkirk was very sparse in terms of people, destruction and vehicles because of his insistence on no-CGI, which I think was a detriment to him. His film was more "Nolan makes a war film" than a good depiction of Operation Dynamo.

    I'm a bit sad that WG didn't do some sort of cross-campaign with the film like what happened with Dunkirk. It would've been cool to go all-out with it to help both the film and the game. Maybe when Midway comes out on DVD?
