  1. Premium Ship Review #111: Jean Bart

    I'll admit; I snorted. I'm internally giggling with glee at the prospect of driving this one. Maybe. Since we still don't know how she'll be presented for acquisition.
  2. Graf spee, worth it?

    I have both versions - the HSF and normal Spee. That should say something. However, it's not for everyone. It takes some getting used to. The question you should probably be asking yourself here is, "Do I want to spend the time learning how to use a six gun ship with dispersion that can send shells into the next time zone without warning?" She doesn't handle like any other cruiser in the KM tech tree, her firepower, while formidable, is on the light side. You duff a salvo and you've got a slightly lengthy wait ahead of you just like a BB. However, she's got some good fish to sling, and when her guns hit, they hit well. So is it worth it? Yes, and no. I have a lot of fun in Spee, but others can't stand her. She's not pricey at the moment, so I'd say risk it and try her out. Worst case scenario is you'll wind up with an attractive port princess to take out when you feel like being cheeky. Like what was mentioned in prior posts, you can put any skill set captain in her, and she's going to work. That alone should be a selling point.

    Eh, 10 bucks for a ship I didn't have. It's well worth it for a pixel böte. Still an Omaha that explodes if you look at it funny, but the completionist in me is happy.
  4. How to Shut Up a Commander

    What? You get to not even notice when Nelson pops off. I've been power grinding Hood and she has been rather noisy. After awhile, you dont hear it anymore.
  5. Ugh. I do not envy you, Mouse. You either have stock in 5 Hour Energy drinks or are drowning Espressos by the gallon to keep this pace up.
  6. Purchasable T9 Premium ship?

    This. I made this mistake and performed so poorly in Atago that I didn't touch it for the better part of a year. And even now, I'm a bit leery to do so. It doesn't stop me from grabbing my free XP ships, but that's a subject for another time. However, locking high tier premium ships behind a skill wall isn't the answer. WG would effectively be shooting themselves in the foot from a financial perspective. Making tier 9 premiums available (or more readily so) for anyone willing to shell out the hard cash to do so would result in a horde of players carrying torches and pitchforks looking for blood. Granted, there are folks willing to go Mastercard Mercenary and convert free XP... ...it's the proverbial "slippery slope." There really isn't a fix-all available on this. Sometimes I wish it was easier, and sometimes wish it wasn't possible to do after being in a few high tier matches. I like to think of it as the carrot hanging from the stick. It gives people the incentive to bust their butts to work towards a goal and hopefully get better at the game while doing so. My apologies if I'm rambling. Writing with a migraine tends to make my mind derail.
  7. Premium Ship Review #103: Salem

    @LittleWhiteMouse I think I found an "Oops?" Apologies if it isn't, but I was cruising along on a good read and then I hit this speedbump. I think.
  8. Premium Ship Review #108: T-61

    I'm not sure on this one. You get a few more seconds out of it, and the dissipation penalty doesn't help. I mean, It makes a little difference, but not enough to say, "ZOMGWTFBBQBROKEN with this mod!" Basically, I'd save it for a ship that can make a difference with it - but your mileage may vary. 1st match I got deleted as I pulled a Notser and didn't hit the smoke fast enough. 2nd match was MUCH better, although it turned up as a loss with 2 kills. Damage of 44k, so not stellar. But I was much happier in this match. Edit: I took the smoke mod off. It really didn't help all that much. Maybe 5 extra seconds, tops.
  9. Premium Ship Review #108: T-61

    I'll be trying it today - at the time of posting I'd just gotten home after working late. I'll try it and see how it goes.
  10. Premium Ship Review #108: T-61

    I'm halfway tempted to throw a smoke generator mod on to adjust it's time a bit. I'm of two minds on it.
  11. First time out and I wound up with 92 secondary hits, a double strike with said secondaries and dreadnought. Not the best outing damagewise, but it was a hell of a lot of fun. I don't regret picking this one up in the slightest.
  12. It triggers my OCD

    Well. I learned something today. I never even knew this was there. Thanks for that.
  13. Anime in World of Warships

    Me too. I even had my popcorn all set and everything. I am disappoint.
  14. So an Italian Nurnburg. Got it.
  15. Premium Ship Review: Varyag

    And you used the [MEATS] clan icon for it... Heh. That's going to make for some chuckles in Meathead's discord. I giggled at the review, but downright guffawed at the "free port slot" bit. The wife is slightly miffed at me waking her up from my laughing. Wife aggro! We have wife aggro! I need the chocolate covered bacon and a caramel macchiato, stat!
