    This topic keeps resurfacing. Blow all ballast!

    competitive vs casual

    "Never a rose without a thorn; many a thorn without a rose." - Schopenhauer I've been blessed without those obligations. My cats are a full-time job anyhow.

    You're going to be one of these people that dies peacefully in your bed and they discover millions of dollars hidden away aren't you...? ;)

    competitive vs casual

    For the first years "Competitive" for me meant playing random to maximize the money and research I could earn in order to get the ships I wanted. In the last year I stopped buying premium and ships, as I had almost all the ships I wanted. Recently I have started playing Coop only for the first time and is a blast to take the full fleet out without the stress of *losing.* I'm glad I finally made it to Coop.

    Battle Ship Secondary's

    That sets the right tone. "secondaries" - sort of says it all when you think about it.

    A good gaming desktop that doesn't cost to much

    Funny you should mention that, I'm looking too. Right now I am looking for a solid state external drive (Toshiba seems very good) to back up my main desktop for now, one that can later be slotted into a good laptop--any ideas?

    If you could only keep three ships

    Sorry not going to bite. ALL of my ships in my sig are there for a reason; ergo I play them all, even if infrequently. I am a collector and I play for the spice of different nationalities and ship lines... Three ships I would keep on an island... with amazing, and highly improbable wifi connections.... well that would be telling sorry.

    Battleships are a disappointment

    Listen to this gent. You have to accept that these are close-in battles... historically a Grand admiral would have to be barking mad to send his high seas fleet into an archepelago of dense islands to hammer it out close range, but this allows all classes to come into play here... cut them some slack, it's a game and they really pack in as much historicity as they can. I admire them for that, other flaws notwithstanding (enough new ships, now focus on battle modes and variety of engagements please). BBs are my favourite class but I play all of them outside of CVs which still intimidate the feck out of me play-wise. There is a key to playing BBs effectively and that is "support and push" and I emphasize pushing at the right time--the endzone floaters lobbing misses for half the battles and finally moving forward when it is *safe* bug my a** interminably. As someone else said, 3-months play is way too early to judge things and btw, do not make the mistake of assuming it's the same shark-tank that WOT is, even though I chose the wrong metaphor. ;)

    RIP Jessi Combs

    No kidding. Speed kills... so do peer groups and media expectations. So long Jessi, RIP, we hardly knew ye lassie.

    Is Yamato Worth It?

    Course you should, win or lose she is a classic. [...but then I'm a collector]

    Minor WW II Free Navies (Drachinifel video)

    Ask Lert about that.

    Why would we want pre-dreadnoughts in the game?

    Yes that was close to it in retrospect. They will have to tweak things to make it work, perhaps MM at Tier II only includes Tier II in it's battles but allow for fewer players in a battle when waiting.

    Just not worth my time anymore

    C for the cognoscente conjures climactic combat a campaign of champions become a charnel-house as the cohorts and catapults of Caesar clump and clank by a countryside covered in corpses and the carmine-clad centurions with their coruscating casques ceaselessly carry conquest into Carthage, Cappadocia and Cyrene charmed by calabash, cashews, cloves and cardamine cinnamon, camomile, calamary and cardamom. Fair seas, I expect you will be back frankly.
