    1000 base xp co-op?

    The only 1000 base XP game I ever had was in the Jean Bart. I think this was one of the first 100 battles in it so it's basically become my favorite ship now. Also this was before the CV rework.

    Premium Ship Review #120: Plus Sized Baltimore

    I see the point you're making about relative costs, but I still think 1mil free xp is too much for the Alaska. What I really should have said earlier is that I don't understand why WG made the Alaska 25% more expensive than say the Missouri for example, arguably a better (albeit unattainable) ship. I know no one is forcing me to get her, but I just can't shake the feeling that WG went a little too far on the price.

    Premium Ship Review #111: Jean Bart

    Really glad I went for the manly build on this ship, albeit slightly more invested in secondaries and main battery reload (I've discovered that if I just let my HP go down to red before using my heal once, I can get the reload down to ~8 seconds with the booster). I know this screen shot is old but really kinda goes to show how strong this ship is. This was in co-op btw and also the first (and so far only) time I've ever gotten a 1000 base xp game. Im not sure but I think thats a record for coop, if not please feel free to correct.

    Premium Ship Review #120: Plus Sized Baltimore

    The only thing I can't stand about the Alaska is the 1mil XP cost. HMS Conquerer costs 255000 xp to research, I can research the ship almost 4 times for the same amount of XP. I wouldn't mind if Alaska was the previously standard 750K price point, but I can't get behind the extra 250,000. I don't think it's worth that much really. Anyway, thats my 2 cents.

    In Praise of Pre-dreadnoughts

    Should pre-dreadnoughts be added, one ship I'd really like to see is HMS Victoria from 1887. Despite sinking in 13 minuets after colliding with another ship during maneuvers, she was the home of John Jellicoe back when he was an XO, and supposedly Admiral Horatio Nelson's sword is in the wreck as the captain was a big admirer of Nelson. Plus the ship looks really cool!

    CV's suck so bad now

    I agree that the new rework is pretty shoddy. In a recent battle I spent roughly half of the match trying to kill one Queen Elizabeth in my Ranger. I scored 9 bomb, 3 torp, and 15 rocket hits for about 46K damage plus 5 fires for another 7K. Still wasn't able to sink the damn ship. The planes for tier 6 don't do enough damage, 5567 max damage for ranger's torpedoes is ridiculously low. Thats just a little above the max damage of an American 8in AP shell. And then on top of that you've got torpedo damage reduction for BBs, so now they do even less damage...if they hit. Plus, if you're unfortunate enough to be bottom tier, might as well not play. I remember going after an Akizuki (which has a max AA of 46) and losing my entire attack squadron before I could even click to begin an attack run. I'm not sure what happened WG with all your testing, but somehow you really overlooked this issue. Also, is it just me or does the bots in coop seem to get their damage control off cool down faster? Like I said earlier, I set 5 fires on the QE, for 7K damage. How does that work?!

    CV so OP now

    Honestly, I haven't had that problem. If anything, I think some of the carriers are kinda under preforming. I just got out of a match with the Ranger and in said battle, I was the last one against 4 enemy ships...couldn't even kill one Queen Elizabeth. I scored 9 bombs, 3 torps, and 15 rocket hits for 45460 damage, plus 5 fires for another 7K damage. Even still, wasn't able to sink the damn BB, after pounding it for roughly 7 minuets. Honestly, I think the planes while easier to control and overwhelm enemies, don't do enough damage. Either that or there's something up with the coop bots where their damage control comes back faster for some reason.

    San Francisco Port.

    I know this page hasn't had a post in about a year, but I think WG left a small easter egg for a San Francisco port. Look at the Armada 2.0 page on the P.E. Friedrich, specifically at the left side of the picture at the top of the page. Looks suspiciously like the Golden Gate Bridge with Fort Point underneath.
  9. So, since this recent update wows keeps crashing every 1 to 3 games for me. Its never happens in port, only when a match is loading, in progress or when I click return to port. The game is actually unplayable now. I have no idea what causes it to crash, it just happens instantaneously. No freeze, no message, just suddenly I'm back at my desktop. Is anyone else having this problem and does anyone have any pointers as to what is going on? I'd like to be able to play this game but this bug is making it more frustrating than fun to play.
  10. I think I may have found a glitch with USS Kidd. I just purchased the ship today and all 3 times I've played it I've encountered what I think is called the lag glitch. Basically the screen freezes and so does my inputs but the game is still happening because the audio is unaffected (i.e. its like getting a major lag spike that doesn't affect the audio for some reason). I normally get the glitch maybe once a week or so but consistently with the Kidd, something is up. System: 15" Macbook pro 2016
