    Been playing too much CV/DD

    Hmm... possibly I'd agree... except those vulnerabilities exist, I believe, for more than one purpose, mechanics and money.

    If you're a conspiracy theorist....

    True. It took a great amount of willpower to pass on all those carriers. Considering what you get these days, their asking prices are well, unrealistic.
  3. Sure, hold my beer, let me jump into my T7 carrier and... what's that you say? "You don't have a tier seven carrier my friend." Hey, I don't! I wonder how hard it would have been to simply allow a T6 carrier to play Narai? If that would be too tough, then allow a T8 carrier to play. But to exclude the ship type you spent a whole lot of this and that on for a very long time, well... seems kinda silly doesn't it?

    Why WG, why?

    I do admit I have not looked at it that way. Great point.

    Why WG, why?

    What's the allure of this ship? Is it the sacrifice of life you have to put forth to get it? Is she so OP the world shakes when she fires? There are SO many DDs in this game that are quite enjoyable to play if playing a DD is what you want.. but I suspect it's more of the "ooh look... he's got that ship which was behind the play wall... wow, must be an awesome player" thing, amiright? I guess it's the four years I've been here that sort of sours me on these types of "rewards". It is, to my eyes, insanity. But hey, that's just me, mostly.
  6. So in a battle this morning I see a dd trying to cap for the win. He stands a good chance of it by the look of the map. I'm dead (in a JB) so I'm watching him. He's popped smoke, firing at BBs 12km away, moving out of smoke, moving into smoke and oh yeah he has his AA(A) turned on. It reminded me so much of the above 'toon... I'm still smiling when I think of it. Yeah... he got smeared like a bumblebee against a F16 canopy...

    ST: Many Changes to Test Ships!

    @Kami can you try for a system-wide change in terminology when discussing carrier aircraft? It's been suggested on the forums they aren't regenerating, but being brought up from the hangars. There's probably a lot of words you could use instead of "regeneration". This is the most recent reference I can find. I totally agree with @NoSoMo here... heck, just the use of "restock" or "deck them", something like it? Flight ready? I know there must be a military term for the act of pulling aircraft from below decks and readying them for flight on the deck... It'd help reduce some of the absurd hysteria people have about unlimited aircraft for sure. It also furthers the illusion of some semblance of accuracy. Thanks for considering the change in terminology. As to the Ark Royal... it sounds like you've simply increased the number of aircraft that can be shot down while removing the ship's ability to do damage worthy of the investment in money and time.

    0.8.5 Carrier Tips & Tricks

    So a near necro... I think 30 days must pass... but it's strange isn't it... hundreds of times I hear about all these secret things people do but so far nobody has produced one thing for us carrier players to better our carrier play. Weird. Maybe they don't really exist?

    REVELL Schnellboot S-100

    Truly folks, I wish this sort of thing was available when I was a kid "back in the day". I think the use of super glues is fantastic, just it alone would have been amazing... You truly can learn so much from these videos you just wish you'd known or discovered on your own. I'm glad you guys enjoyed it. His static display was pretty good too!

    WG has some questions to answer

    You know my ZeroKarma fuel tank fills up on all this CV angst and hatred. We CV players see through you like Saran wrap. I think, personally, it could have been flat-out hilarious if they'd have let them play carriers. Imagine the whole red team rushing to kill the carrier just for the doubloons. Now imagine both teams having carriers. Why... it might have played out like the rumored RU server battles.
  12. So like... what's your connect rates, etc been like from the states to EU?

    Karma - I have to laugh at this one...

    Used to be real easy... now it's tied to your name, where it is displayed on the port screen... where of course nobody would look... Left-click on your account name - and to the upper right of your account name will be a number. Dat is der Karma.
