    I love this ship: P.E.F.

    PEF is not the best ship I have ever played. PEF is not the worst ship I have ever played. I am happy for you that you like and enjoy yours as much as you do. See you in the game, 07!

    rewards in CO-OP

    I have to agree with @Crucis on this issue (and I'll be drinking heavily for the rest of the day to get the taste of admitting that out of my mouth), but not all players are created equal and some play Co-op for very good reasons. For those who live with both physical challenges, and a sense of honor, playing Co-op, where their personal issues affect their teams less, should be rewarded on a commensurate level, though not on the same level as Randoms. Although Co-op was not designed to be a full on battle mode like Randoms were, it has certainly ended up that way for a significant percentage of players, who choose to lay against bots for their own reasons. IN MY OPINION, these players could be thrown a bone and be given rewards which, again, while not equaling or matching Random rewards, could be somewhat more rewarding than they currently are. And perhaps they should be matched to the specific challenges inherent in Co-op battles, like killing 7 out of 8 bots, or lighting a basket full of fires, or getting a boatload of secondary hits. No, the two are not the same, but there isn't really any reason why both cannot be rewarding.
  3. It's certainly something I've seen. As @Shadeylark states, you used to see a lot of matches with 5 BBs and 5 DDs. What I see now are matches with 5 BBs, 5 cruisers, and 2 DDs. If there are CVs in the match it will most often take away a cruiser slot, though I have seen 2 CV matches with 5 BBs, 3 cruisers and still just 2 DDs. While I have noticed DD player numbers dropping, amazingly, you never see BB numbers fall. It took WoW 3 years to fix all the things they screwed up where CVs were concerned, and what we are getting is hardly what any thinking player would call a fix. CVs every other tier, no ability to actually control the ship you're supposed to be sailing, and one air squadron available at a time, with the entire RTS system tossed out the window; honestly, I've seen better solutions proposed in this very Forum for over 2 years. Whether you like or dislike DDs, I would like you to consider the exactly how much fun the game will be with 2 classes of ships being played, because it's become obvious that CVs are on the way out and, from the way they're being treated, DDs are next. Maybe the BB boys will get their way and this really will become World of Battleships; everyone can line up and get their brand new shiny paper Russian ships and then BBs will only be able to be hurt by BBs.

    I won a ship from a supercontainer!

    Like I said above: It's not the worst ship I've ever played, though it is a ship which will teach you to love islands.

    Potential Damage and Spotting

    Disagree; it's like watching two sandlot teams instead of two Little League World Series contenders. The scrubs could only hope for off-setting mistakes.

    Potential Damage and Spotting

    Since WoW has often stated that they want fast matches, and team play would result in matches lasting longer, where do you think this suggestion falls on the "HoneyDo" list?

    I Like Donuts or Krasny Krym Forever

    So all I have to do is hang out until I can grind a 17 point Captain? Well OK then! (That shouldn't take longer than forever!)

    I won a ship from a supercontainer!

    I have won a total of 2 ships from containers, this one and a Mutsu. Will not be going to Vegas this week!

    Why is Dallas such a turd...

    It's a tier 6 LIGHT Cruiser, were you expecting to bounce 16 inch shells?

  12. I got a supercontainer, and won a brand new Krasny Krim! (Honestly, I sort of feel like I just traded the curtain containing the Hawaiian vacation for the box containing 1000 lbs of Peanut Butter on Let's Make A Deal! KRASNY KRIM?!?!?) But, hey; a free ship is a free ship … Sincerely, Thank You WoW and WG for my prize.

    Remove Torps from DD gun botes.

    Personally, I think we should remove the airplanes from CVs; why is it fair that those ships should have both sea and air capabilities? Lets just armor all the flight decks, buff the snot out of the secondaries, and give them Godzilla fire control. Make them faster so they can spot, and reduce their detection range down to DD level. Just a bunch of Bismarks and Tirps that no one can see. No one should be able to shoot you from the sky AND the ocean, so please remove aircraft from CVs right away! PS: This would also end all argument over the about to be launched CV rework.

    new cv reworked

    That would not surprise me in the least. It sort of goes with the ship type, no? Universal hatred of the ship which can take you out with one (torp) salvo? I saw in another post (and sorry, I can't remember which one as I suffer from Oldtimers Syndrome) that rockets rarely kill but farm damage and harassment both from the CV and the other ships on the Red team. I will also NOT be surprised to find out this is true either.
