  5. Such a timely topic, I have 12 hours left on my Premium time, I get a notice YOU CAN BUY THE MASSACHUSETTS BEFORE MERE MORTALS!!!

Oh well I saved $ If I cant float it now I wont buy it ever lol...silly wargaming.
  6. First off let me say you can only play 1 boat at a time and this is just 3 out of hundreds, in today's game I would much rather have a Fujin than any of the offered ships. The high win rates of this vanity ships tells me they are being played by players with above average skill, and that is only an assumption based on what it takes to get the ship. And yes WR is not the end all be all. I play another account too and have 60% win rate over 1500 battles, but guess what? I would rather play this account and play all the ship varieties opposed to certain ships to maintain that WR too much like work dude. Everyone has a right to their opinion no matter how wrong it is, even you the OP. If you stop and think more about this, think about it from the opposing side's view. To many folks boats are the difference, If I contribute to the game with my $ with premium time, etc. Why cant I have a legitimate shot at that reward boat? Can I buy it? Think of the Graft Spee and the Graf Spee H, and Graf Spee, until recently you could tell who got the ship with the mission and who bought it "H" designation. Same with Flags you fly. I will probably never ever play clan battles way too much drama for me, so for me oh well, if that is how WG wants to offer ships, so be it, and I am fine with that. In your manifesto you look down on people because they want a ship then throw around insults about WR and these people are somehow not legitimate people worthy of a ship is baloney. WG would like to see more clan play this is their incentive, perhaps (but unlikely) if WG would communicate the intentions and be successful in the communication their wouldn't be so much red butt going around. Having played WG games for awhile now, I realize the only thing I can count on is change, good and bad. End result, what ever WG decides to do that will be the game, and if it gets too complicated (coal, steel, economy etc) they will probably loose some players over it, but they I would assume are looking for more players and retaining the ones they have. My final thought on this, a million happy unskilled players is worth more than 10,000 skilled players to WG. The game does not "need" skilled players to be successful, they just need happy players, and a lot of them, look at fortnite.
  7. Update 0.7.6 Bug Report

    Unable to use Omaha's XP to buy Dallas, I have 18K XP and Dallas is still 43k
  8. Possible Solution to Radar

    Ladies, It is time to change the Radar mechanics to allow ONLY the ship with the radar to SEE what is on the radar screen. nuff said.
  9. Initially developed to destroy naval mines, the paravane would be strung out and streamed alongside the towing ship, normally from the bow. The wings of the paravane would tend to force the body away from the towing ship, placing a lateral tension on the towing wire. If the tow cable snagged the cable anchoring a mine then the anchoring cable would be cut, allowing the mine to float to the surface where it could be destroyed by gunfire. If the anchor cable would not part, the mine and the paravane would be brought together and the mine would explode harmlessly against the paravane. The cable could then be retrieved and a replacement paravane fitted. A paravane being lowered into the sea from an Australian warship in 1940. Lieutenant Burney developed explosive paravanes as an anti-submarine weapon, a "high speed sweep". It was a paravane, containing 80 pounds (36 kg) of TNT towed by an armoured electric cable. The warhead was fired automatically as soon as the submarine touched the paravane or towing cable or by hand from the ship's bridge. It could be quickly deployed into the water and towed up to 25 knots (46 km/h), and recovery if unsuccessful was reasonably simple
  10. Warspite vs QE

    QE plays just a bit differently, I would take her out for a spin and get know the nuances of the line.
  11. Shhhhh! No one needs to know :) and thanks
  12. Yamoto Fireworks too! The dodge begins at 41 secs
  13. Dude can you just imagine a spotter mod on a NC? with the right build your reach goes to 30K , thats right 30K ever hit a boat at 30K with a NC? I have and its utter destruction. 16 shells coming straight down through the deck, KA FREAKING BOOM! What is the worst I have gotten from SC's? 50 cammos, and I have gotten that a few times, talk about meh.
  14. New Battle Mode Suggestion

    Imagine if you will a map. This map has islands. All spotting mechanics are removed except for the smoke screen. I am not saying change the entire game just suggesting to throw that type of map in on rotation once in a while. I bet it would make for some good fun. Estuary may make a good map for this.
  15. Worst premium you've ever purchased?

    INDIANAPOLIS, & MARBLEHEAD after the range nerf.
