    USS Fanning and the U-58

    I think he said he has. WG has sponsored at least one of this videos in the past.

    #562 - REPLAY ANALYSIS 11/3

    Ha, I think that was the first game I tried Thunderer on. I learned it dies quickly when focused lol We've been having good success with it since though.
  3. Fair point, it's an incomplete set of data from which to draw any conclusions. It seems to be telling, however, that no season that they've published numbers on has shown an increase in either games or players from a prior season. We don't know what seasons 10 and 11 looked like because I can't find any WG published data, but my gut feeling is that the overall drop in player numbers can't be strictly tied to seasonal variance.
  4. I don't have season 7 numbers in my chart, but I noticed the same thing: I've never ranked out in normal Ranked, because I find the format very tiresome. Relying so overtly on random players to not potato winds up making me less happy after a playing session than I was before. So I learned, for my own morale and mental well being, to not bother. Ranked Sprints can be fun because of carry potential being much higher due to 2 person divs.
  5. Frankly, I'm glad this forum doesn't have 10+ pinned topics on every channel. Some of the forums I'm on do, and it's super annoying to have to scroll past every time. Pin stuff, but remove it when it's past its sell by date.

    How is your Re-grinding going?

    It isn't going, and probably never will. I don't play this game nearly as much as would be required to have either a) enough time to regrind a line that many times, or b) enough freeXP to be able to whale it (not to mention that effectively makes these RB ships cost ~2.5M freeXP...ouch!). I do, however, enjoy playing ships of all tiers, and will do so regardless of the RB.

    PSA LIVE Q&A with Sub Octavian on Reddit, NOW!

    I'm not saying I believe or don't believe they will nerf Smolensk. I have no idea. What I am glad about is that in their mind, they categorize purchased premiums vs premiums obtained via in game resources as different from the perspective of being able to adjust them post release. And yes, I've been here a while.

    That's great news IMHO, and it's a lot easier for WG to refund some ingame currency if need be than real cold hard cash. I could easily see a situation where they might have to hard nerf a ship and just offer a coal refund for said ship. Easy peasey. With ships purchased with real $, refunds affect the company bottom line much more directly, making it a different thing.

    Steel Dilemma

    I have Bourgogne and Stalin, and tested Somers. Of the three, if I could have only one, I'd choose Bourgogne. She's just what I look for most in a battleship. Fast, agile, good guns (especially with MBRB), looks good, etc. Stalin is fun in certain circumstances, but can also be a real bore to play most of the time. And it actually doesn't get a lot of play (maybe 1 slot) on most Typhoon/Hurricane clan battles lineups. I always prefer to drive a Henri or Zao if comp allows, due to their playstyle being much more fun (IMHO) Somers is a pretty fair DD, although I think there are better choices at tier X (Daring, Shimakaze, and Kleber would be preferred for me)
  10. Normal cruiser vs BB discussion isn't really relevant here because Venezia and other Italian cruisers in test don't use HE and don't have to rely on standard AP...they also have the new Semi Armor Piercing shells that is still being tuned. It has some "interesting" effects on some ships currently. Whether it's an issue with the shells or strange "holes" in ships armor we've never had a way to see before is something that'll have to come through further testing. For now, she's a beast, and her full throttle "fuel smoke" consumable also gives her a get out of jail free card.

    California HYPE

    So I called up the Captain,'Please bring me my wine'He said, 'we haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine'

    Dont let ranked burn you out. Heres some ideas on how.

    My solution: don't play ranked. Seriously, I don't know why people do it to themselves. Ranked feels like this 95% of the time:

    They nerfed Henri because of it's (over)use in CBs most likely. It may be rarely played in randoms, but it was a MUST HAVE ship in competitive because of its ability to strongly counter Moskva/Stalin spam, and generally be the most dominant all around flanker. It's ability to sit on a flank, throttle juke, and be almost impossible to kill unless heavily focused drove the nerf, and it was justified IMHO.
