    Torps icon delay

    This is the first time had such a strange (and stupid) bug that probably cost me a win. I was playing Harugumo and started daka daka in my smoke. Red Zao was spotted and dropped torps in my smoke. I knew they were coming but at the same time I had to focus on killing the red Montana pushing my smoke. So I start reversing and the moment I spot them, there was a distance of roughly 300-500m and with my angle I had plenty of time to avoid them....Lol nope they're not were they pretend to be and it actually killed my ship. So I watched the replay and...well I'll let you guys see for yourself This is not a bug from the replay in case some people might think that. It was really what happened during the game. Damn, give my Zao those torpedo. I included the replay if someone wants to watch it. 20181216_143644_PJSD210-Harugumo_19_OC_prey.wowsreplay

    Preferential Matchmaking for Premiums

    The problem if you restrain it to some premium ship rated "Meh" is that you'll have to deal with complain about how unfair the treatment between each premium is made. And unlike in WOT you still can damage top tier ship with your bottom tier one.
  3. KS doesn't exist except if it's my Div mate. Get your hands off my prey.
  4. Define better. If we're talking about the game itself, WOW isn't bad, TBF it's actually among the best free to play of that genre. The only thing that could make WOWs console a bit better than PC version is if WG introduces a tutorial system that every new player will be forced to do.

    Ships that take to much energy to play?

    Henri. HE spam at long range is easy. Having an actual impact so that your team don't collapse in 5 min, is reallllly hard.

    Community Contributers have higher odds of Supers.

    That's what you get when it comes to gambling. TBH it wouldn't surprise me if WG gave CC a slightly better crate version of what is available for use. Like if a crate have 2% chance of containning a ship, the same crate given by WG to CC would have like 5% chance of having a ship inside. CC are what makes the game more popular and how do you encourage people to buy their product ? You give CC good RNG so that they can attract a lot of people but you also don't make it so obvious that this is a slightly better crate. Eventually it will just be justified as "Gambling" and because you don't have access to ship drop rate, all you can do is speculation.

    Montana should get a speed nerf

    7.11.1 and detonations

    Last time I was detonated was because a dead Kronshtad who played really bad managed to hit my Shima and got that lucky Russian bias and detonated me. But overall detonation seems to be less frequent.

    What angers me most about HE

    it's a side effect of the addition of RN BB. Their HE is so good that BB player rediscover the number 1 button. And considering how your average BB player complain about getting ricochet or overpen against other ship, these player will most likely be spamming HE all days because " HE doesn't overpen or bounce". Well, there is no point in spamming AP against a bow on Kurfurst tho, you might as well just switch to HE and start some fire.

    Tactical Tip Tuesday.

    Map awareness. If you have Map awareness you'll survive longer If you survive longer you can deal more damage, cap and support your team If you can surpport your team you'll win. Angling is important but it's useless if you angle against a ship but show your broadside against 5 ship because you lack map awareness

    Instead of screaming for a nerf, learn to beat them!

    Mid tier have their share of HE spammer : -French and Soviet CL in general -Atlanta and Flint -US CL -Soviet DD -Myoukou -Belfast ... The only thing high tier have over low and mid tier are high DPM ship like Akizuki, Minotaure and Worcester.

    Haida Shows a Unhealthy Trend in Game Design

    If you know your concealment and other ship concealment, there you have your outplay...to a certain degree. I'll take the old Akizuki as an example. With 5.9km concealment, at T8, there are only 2 ships that can outspot me: -Asashio. -Kagerou. There are 3 ship that have almost the same concealment as me: -Benson -Kidd -Ognevoi (but I'm not really sure). And I can easily outspot the rest. Before a game I always check how many what DD the red team has as well as what ship they have: - If something is spotting me while remaining concealed, it means I can "safely" charge him because it can only be a Kagerou/Asashio. -If I spot a ship and I'm being spotted at the same time, it can only be a Benson/Kidd/Ognevoi. If you apply that same rule for Shiratsuyu, then you should know that the only T7 ship able to outspot you is Haida. If you know how to properly contest cap with IJN DD in general you shouldn't be taking too much damage too.

    Seal Clubbing.

    Seal Clubbing at T10 was already a thing. But playing WOWs with Week End player is a brand new experience. Each Week End players are different from the last one. It's like rediscovering an endless loop

    Well..Wikipedia dun [edited] up!

    I could just scream outloud how the US decided to nuke and kill thousands of innocent Japanese civilian. When the Japanese Prime minister went to the US for the commemoration of the death of US soldiers, many people were expecting him to apologize. I heard he didn't and apparently it shocked many people on the Internet. From an external POV, what really shock me the most isn't really the fact that the Japanese prime minister didn't apologize but the fact that people expected him to do so BUT never expected the US to apologize for nuking Japanese civilians. Historians are supposed to write their articles from a neutral POV. Reading Nagato was a super dreadnaught BB, she carried X, she did Y isn't that different than reading Arizona did this, saved X person and carried Y.
