    Behold: A THING! Aircraft HP Values Visualized!

    Pretty cool, thanks!
  2. Introduction This is a short, non-factual, and opinionated-type (my opinion) post on the tier 4 Royal Navy carrier Hermes. As a note, I'll be comparing it to the it's Japanese equivalent, Hosho. About Me... Nothing too much to say. I'm a casual, haven't even gotten to tier 10 yet. But as for Hosho and Hermes, I've got 3 random battles in Hosho and 2 in Hermes. In co-op, it's 8 battles in Hosho and 7 in Hermes. The Format The format of this post will be rocket (attack) aircraft, torpedo bombers, dive bombers, and miscellaneous. Rocket (Attack) Aircraft Torpedo Bombers (!!!) Dive Normal Bombers (?) Miscellaneous Two things of note here. Hermes has the best secondary armament and the worse AA armament of tier 4 carriers. She's carrying 6 140mm cruiser-style guns, firing HE, on each side. They're good enough to knock out a severely wounded DD within two to three hits (a DD with about slight more than +1000 hitpoints). To sweeten the deal, she's also carrying 3 single-barreled 102mm dual-purpose (DP) mounts as found on the cruiser Emerald. But this is the issue, Hermes AA complement consists of only these 3 single-barreled 102mm DP mounts, and they're the continuous damage type. That's all you get. I'd imagine only good positioning and maneuvering will save her from aerial attacks. Conclusion It's a good carrier, on the same level of Hosho. But I can't help but think Langley might be the superior tier IV CV, at least in terms of doing damage, but then again, I've never played her. Again, the biggest issue I have with Hermes are its' bombers, it's trading accuracy for more chances of hits, but I don't think the payoff is worth it. Good luck to WG on balancing dive bombers. Wait a minute, why am I writing this if everyone probably has Hermes? Edit: So after writing I realized that armoured cruisers in WoWS do not exist. Well, I'm writing off of memory and I classify things like St. Louis' and Charlestons as armoured cruisers, but they essentially have superstructure armour all-round. I just remembering using the bombers on a Charleson and getting lackluster damage. I'm beginning to think the penetration of the bombs are just extremely poor, or it the bombs are extremely inconsistent. If it makes anyone feel better, I can assure you these bombers will do excellent damage against a Katori.

    Public Test 0.8.2 - Feedback

    So I'm playing with 1600x900 resolution, I just have one small issue... I can barely see the modules at all, considering that we can't modify the consumables on carriers anyway, maybe make them smaller?

    Premium Ship Review #121: Exeter

    Rip Exeter, can't even catch a break in a pixel bote game. At least she's nice to look at...

    this is why no alaska?

    I'll be honest, I thought the whole reason that Alaska isn't out for "sale" was because of the CV rework.

    Welcome Back Contest! - 6th to 11th

    What is your in-game name and the origin of it (as long as it is appropriate for the forums)? When I was younger, younger me thought that my current name was cool. How long have you been playing World of Warships? Apparently I've been playing since mid 2016. Still haven't gotten a Tier IX yet, gg. What got you into playing World of Warships? Love of Ships? History? Came from a different game? Explain what got you into the game. You guys offered anime ships, that was enough of a gimmick. What is your favorite ship? Why? Feel free to add a pic as well! October Revolution, solid guns, accuracy, AA(?) and concealment (haven't played much of the new update though, so I don't know what it's like atm). If there's anything else I have to add about it, I absolutely hated the red camo, which I could have gotten for free but chose not too.

    Upcoming Premiums?

    So was looking at the 3D model for Izmail over on Harkonnen's (EU CC) SketchFab account when I found the following. World of Warships Japanese Premium Tier VIII Destroyer Yukikaze" "World of Warships American Premium Tier VIII Cruiser Montpelier." These were taken from his SketchFab account, you can view the 3D models there. To be honest, I'm a little skeptical of these ships as they're essentially just Cleveland and Kagerou. I guess we can hope. EDIT: https://sketchfab.com/Harkonnen/models (to actually view them)

    Give GC her original guns and leave her at T5

    If I'm recalling correctly, the original GC (in real life) with her 305s had a turret amidships that was removed when the guns were bumped up. WG would have to remodel GC since a 10 gun 305 armed GC never existed.

    What premium ships do you have?

    USA Albany, Monaghan Japan Tachibana Lima, Katori, Yubari, ARP Kongos (all), ARP Myoko, ARP Haguro, Ashitaka, and HSF Harekaze. USSR Varyag, October Revolution, Molotov Germany HSF Graf Spee, Z-39 UK Dreadnought France Aigle Commonwealth Vampire I earned Tachibana Lima, Katori, all the ARP ships, Varyag, October Revolution, Dreadnought, Aigle, and Vampire. I bought Molotov and the HSF ships. Yubari I got from the Aresenal. I got Monaghan and Z-39 from this years Santa Crates. Ashitaka was from the doubloons I got from the crates. Favourite ships are October Revolution, Yubari, and ARP Haguro (aesthetics). I use Molotov and HSF Graf Spee to grind for credits. As for the rest, they're decent/on par with regular ships. If anything, I hate the DDs that I have because for the most part, I don't play DDs very often, and when I do, it's the gunboats that I play. On my wish/get list: Makoto Kobayashi camo for Ashitaka Charleston (For sealclubbing purposes...) Musashi (Yeah, no. Not anywhere close with Free XP or coal.) A Tier VIII BB (Kii then Tirpitz then Alabama then Vanguard then Roma, not sure which one I really want yet, so the list is in the order of preference.) Scharnhorst (I know it's a beast, but Ashitaka clicked more with my playstyle.)
  10. No, you can't claim them in game. Essentially WG credits you the awards.
  11. You'll get an email (hopefully you've used the same email on the PT server as on the live server) in about 2 to 3 weeks time (don't quote me on that, it's a rough estimate) telling you that you can claim the awards. So just hang on tight and wait.

    A Question about Stream Twitch Containers

    Was just wondering if anyone had a list of potential drops from the Twitch containers that you get from watching streams. On a side note, does anyone here get containers from watching CCs? Cause that doesn't seem to be happening for me. NVM, have one now. EDIT: Thanks in advance.

    The Katori is Bettter than I Remember

    I got my only Solo Warrior by running away in the Katori (at least I'm pretty sure), so you know, it's pretty good

    To Molotov or not?

    I feel like with Molotov, it has superior guns, similar to Kirov with high velocity and good HE and AP shells but slower reload times, but better (apparently, I haven't played Kirov). However, I'm pretty sure it sacrifices AA, detection, and turning radius for it. Also, it has all the armour of a light cruiser, so it's a glass cannon. Speed is average, I guess the best comparison for you is a slower, less maneuverable , with worse AA, but better armed (but probably more easily detected) De Grasse. I play it as a second line ship or on the flanks, either where the BBs rush so I can spam HE or I can use the AP on broadsides.
