    Naval Battle: Clans Competition

    We have clan members that think they each need to get 20,000 base XP in order for us to qualify despite my telling them we have fulfilled the mission.

    Naval Battle: Clans Competition

    We finished our 91,500 XP mission last night, but the counter below it shows us continuing to earn towards some 20,000 XP mission. I played a game after taking this and that counter went up. What is this?

    Bad aircraft response to turn input

    OK, I understand now: A and D keys for hard turns. Mouse movement for fine adjustment.

    Bad aircraft response to turn input

    Sometimes I can release RMB and it won't turn the planes when I move the mouse and control seems a little more crisp with WASD. Then it goes away and I have to keep holding it down again. I don't get it.

    Bad aircraft response to turn input

    I'm trying to restrict it to WASD by always holding down right mouse button so that should only change camera view point.
  6. I am continuously holding down the right mouse button so I should not be confusing the planes with that versus WASD input. But they all still wallow around like drunks and it is frustrating lining up attack runs as the slightest input to correct it throws off the aiming reticle. Is it supposed to be this bad?
  7. Devs: please add the conversion ratio to the pop-up text in the arsenal. I was expecting the 50,000:1 payout as well.

    Hard work being wasted..

    50,000 per token.
  9. You are welcome and thank you for the upboat! I thought that people like me - who didn't get one through missions earlier this year - will be looking at it in the arsenal and feeling flush with coal from the event. LWM has this line in her review: "Most premium ships have a paywall. Some premium ships have a skill wall. Aigle has a patience wall." This was something that I hoped might get somebody over that wall.
  10. This isn't a review, a how-to-play guide or a recommendation for a particular 19-point commander build. But as someone who recently bought an Aigle from the arsenal with coal I think I do have a couple insights that might be helpful to someone who has just taken the plunge. 1) Got coal to spare? Consider getting the Engine Boost Modification 1 from the arsenal. Aigle's engine boost is special, giving a 20% boost to top speed rather than the usual 8%, meaning your top speed goes from 36 knots to 43.2 knots (without a Sierra Mike signal flag) when it is active. EBM1 increases the duration of this boost from two minutes to three. You can cover a lot of ocean in that extra minute or, say, have it active while you are smoked up to give faster forward and backward juking movement to throw off blind fire and torpedoes and still have plenty left to speed away as it dissipates. EBM1 takes the second upgrade slot which displaces (the usual for DDs) Propulsion Modification 1 upgrade. This trade can be mitigated by way of... 2) Initial commander skills. An arsenal-purchased Aigle comes with a three-point commander. With an in-game or premium shop purchase you can recruit a three-pointer with 25 doubloons. If you don't have a more experienced French cruiser or battleship commander to spare and re-spec this can make for a rough start. Three points gets you Priority Target or Preventive Maintenance and then Last Stand. Having LS or both LS and PM means you likely won't miss the PM1 upgrade if you took EBM1 instead. Given how hosed you can be by the loss of rudder control or engine power and the likelihood of this happening under fire, I think LS is definitely the highest priority for the first two-point skill. However, Aigle is really begging for Expert Marksman as well to remedy it's slow gun traverse, and EM is particularly effective here with the 2.5 degree per second bonus coming from squeaking just within the gun caliber threshold. With 15,000 elite commander XP/free XP you can jump start your commander to five points and pick up EM, so if you can afford this consider it. I ground out these points and was really pleased with the difference EM makes.
