    Who is lurking the forum right now

    I took a few months off for similar reasons I suspect. The ships brought me back...

    Molotov - IFHE?

    Molotov A very unique ship, everything a premium should be. No idea about IFHE--if you have the points to spare give it a go. Keep in mind though that while the Molotov hits hard with her flat-trajectory guns, she does not take damage well. Speed and concealment are your best assets.
  3. Oh hey if you want to talk about alienating and discarding players then just keep feeding newbs into the shark tank of MM. This is a huge problem for WoWs. Ask them about the stats on new players who totally leave after 30-100 games. You won't get it. It's the elephant in the room. It's part of the reason I have pushed to get pre-dreadnoughts into the game--give the newbs a reason to hang about with powerful steampunk battleships tiers II-III. Here's the thread:
  4. I mucked up my response I hope you read my second response. Most players would do better than 45% WR and again, I emphasize this filter would be per ship, not overall WR. Consider it an added inducement to get better on that ship to reduce the delay waiting. In the first league--same as it always was in the regular. (oh listen to them howl against discrimination--MM as it stands IS discrimination half the time, but "randomly")
  5. I disagree. Those with a -45% WR on a particular ship--not overall WR--are in a Newb Class or call it what you will--and will only play fellow newbs or less talented players. Get above 45% WR on that ship and join the rest of us. Simple,. elegant. Give it a try WG you need something different here.
  6. I disagree. You could have two levels of players---45%5
  7. Oh, haven't you checked out Platinum Premium? You only get put into battles where the majority of opponents have a WR of -45%. ;)

    In Praise of Pre-dreadnoughts

    Here's a nice vid on the Seydlitz I posted elsewhere, of which the von der Tann was a precursor:

    Bring on the SMS Seydlitz! (video)

    Yes to all the above and the Von der Tann is also a gorgeous ship, just look at her:
  10. One of the most beautiful ships from that era that needs to be included. Here's a nice little vid: Also mentioned in my pre-dreadnought thread as an exceptional BC:

    In Praise of Pre-dreadnoughts

    The last British battleship... the Mikasa. Ordered from the Vickers shipyard in Barrow-in-Furness in 1898 and completed in 1902, she is the last British-built battleship in existence:

    Congrats! Your topic is number 3014 on the same theme! I hear you, It's one of the major issues you have to deal with playing this and, hint: it's psychological.
