  1. Borticus (from STO), SerB, and a certain cat and mouse combo that appears here now and then.
  2. USN Cruiser Split - USS Dallas?

    He'd play some Pavarotti. (It was Paganini!)
  3. What ship do you EXPECT to win in?

    The ship I don't sail.
  4. I feel dirty

    A war crime?
  5. Urashima Hidden Ability (lolz)

    Oh, cool! It can go off road!
  6. If you want to play the carrier with any degree of success, I suggest watching Farrazelleth's (dunno if that's spelled right) video. He's damned good with a CV, and actually explains why you should do what you should do.
  7. Okay, I get that. But IRL, wasn't she considered a BC? I know that Wikipedia simply classes her as a cruiser while making mention of the English calling her a pocket battleship, but... Wiki. Grains of salt must be taken when dealing with a medium easily editable by every Tom, Short for Richard and Harry. (Really? I can't use the old style diminutive for Richard? What are we, frigging puritans?)
  8. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Graf Spee a battlecruiser? Battleship level of armaments on a small, fast, lightly armoured hull? Isn't that what a BC was?

  11. Let's talk about mods

    Says the person accusing me of hypocrisy. Okay, my last post for you. You haven't once addressed my own, so why should I address yours? As for being deflective, look in the mirror. As for how long it took, actually yeah, it did. Making a turkey dinner while looking after kids at the same time means that sometimes I have to leave in the middle of answering a post that I'm quoting. You know what, I WILL address one point, the one you edited in. That the mod was approved by WG (as if not expressing disapproval is equal to official approval) is largely immaterial. Approval is not ironclad and forever As for info "just being presented in a different way", I'm not sure if you understand this concept or are just willfully ignoring it due to it wrecking the base of your suppositions so I'll reiterate: Anything that removes guesswork or makes information gathering easier, or presents it in a simplified way is an advantage. When one player has that advantage and another does not, it creates an imbalance between the players. To simplify, how information is gathered and presented affects its use. Here's an example using the X minimap marker: You stated earlier that you could accurately hit targets firing in smoke with or without a spotter plane (and honestly, well done you. I still struggle with ranging in on unrendered targets, especially at range). The X, however, gives you a level of precision that you can't match, no matter how much practice you've gotten. It's the difference between "I'm 99% certain I've got the range right" and "The marker shows me exactly what range I'm aiming at". With you eyeballing it, if you're off by a pixel, your shots can miss by tens of metres, or at long range, a hundred or more. You still have the same information with the X as you do without, but now it removes the uncertainty. Get it now? Anyhow, it's turkey day in my household and I have to go. I hope you have a pleasant day, and drive safe.

    I appologise. I should have realised that I was feeding a troll, rather than actually engaging in an actual discussion. BTW, editing posts after the answer is given is a mark of a true Blue Falcon. Have a nice day. :)

    Answers in purple. I have to say, I'm amused at how you keep sidestepping (or outright ignoring) my argument on how and why non-cosmetic mods are unfair to those who aren't using them versus those who do. Oh, and the artillery plotter? It IS in the game. It's an item for a mod slot that increases your ship's main battery range (I think). It doesn't project an indicator of the area where your shots are going to land.
  14. Let's talk about mods

    Sigh. Please, I understand that you like to argue for the sake of arguing, that's fine with me and I'm not going to judge a person's predilections. However, if you're going to do it, please, don't do it in as obtuse a manner as this. It's disingenuous and beneath you. As I said in a previous post, these type of mods are unfair, as not everybody uses them, for a variety of reasons. Maybe their computer can't handle them, maybe they just don't want to use them. It doesn't matter. What does matter is that some players have an advantage over others and thus tip the balance. As for making these mods standard, why? Is the base game so lacking that these are needed to have a complete playing experience? Do we really need to simplify the game to this point; to, in effect, dumb it down? I can see some mods making it in to the base game, like the ones that change the detection range from a dotted circle to a solid shaded circle, or the more cosmetic ones (like alternate medal placement options) as alternative options, but the ones that are literally game-changing, like Navigator? No, no that one needs to go. As for the minimap X, imagine if that wasn't an X, but a dot with a circle scaled to your ship's dispersion area. I leave the implications to the reader.
