  1. Oh, my mistake. You're correct. That said, brevity and readability are still excellent qualities in an entry.
  2. I'd advise writing it for the reader who knows nothing of the history you're covering. 500 is the maximum. The trick is to make a meaningful article people would actually read. We might occasionally go a bit overboard (Fuyuzuki - Enterprise love affair), but generally we like to keep the wiki pages pointed so people find them informative with a degree of brevity.
  3. I'm looking forward to reading your contest submission. ;)
  4. Wild-assed Guess? 1) RNCVs. 2) RNDDs. 3) RNCAs. 4) ITCAs. 5) ITDDs. 6) FRDDs.
  5. NOOBS with GOLD

    1) How did a xLeadSledx topic become worth debating? 2) I still don't see a cognizant argument for anything. 3) Again, why are people paying any attention to his crap? 4) There are far better resources out there for use on a daily basis.
  6. Relative spotting would make CVs much more viable for clan battles.
  7. Premium Ship Review: Roma

    No, you have to interpret their subjective opinion of "meh" and translate it into your subjective opinion of "meh" for it to have any meaning. Even close friends often have to request clarification and context for such things. This review leaves so many opportunities for interpretation into the reader's subjective definitions that semantic disputation suggests lack of reading comprehension.
  8. I felt like throwing up

    I honestly think it's far too early to be concerned with this. As Pope and Wombat have already pointed out, it's a matter of time and priorities, but I'll take it further. Where do you want your clan to be and what do you want it to be in a year? How about two? How do you get it there in a healthy state, and how do you manage expectations along the way? Those are the vital questions. This is week three of what promises to be roughly nine weeks of play in the very first season. I'm willing to speculate that the majority of participants who aren't in the top clans, as well as some of the top clans themselves, are new to team competitive environments. Play can be awkward. Skilled players in Randoms might not be the best performers in Clan Battles. Teamwork is a challenge because no one's really worked together this way before. It'd be an actual miracle if expectations met reality in that kind of environment. If something has to give, let it be expectations to achievable goals. It's in this context that clan leaders need to look at what their members want out of Clan Battles and manage those expectations accordingly. They need to create a plan which keeps their members cohesive and enthusiastic while counseling patience and participation, all to further a future, transparent, and mutually agreed upon agenda. If leaders are experiencing tension in their clan, that's the time to sit everyone down and reevaluate goals in the context of current performance. It's also worth noting that not everyone finds the group that matches their own expectations on the first attempt, so having a few members leave for elsewhere isn't the end of all things - it's to be expected. tl;dr: Create a realistic long term plan and get everyone on board with it.
  9. I've long championed a PM/HA/BoS base for BB captains, coupled with DC2 in place of SG2. I've been slowly swapping manual secondaries for FP as well, excepting one or two specific ships. Add in India Delta, India Yankee, and Juliet Yankee Bissotwo for a very tanky build that makes Fireproof as rare as Clear Sky.
  10. Othotnik free trial

    Gun Canoe is best canoe. Okhotnik is probably the dumbest ship in the game, and easily one of the most fun.
  11. Weekend Event!

    They're usually announced on the front page on Fridays anyway, so check there tomorrow.
  12. I'm fairly certain there are plenty of clans out there that can't fill a full tier 10 roster, but just want to enjoy playing on the same team for once. WG just solved that problem for them. Interesting use of the pity fallacy though.
  13. A sea of coins makes for a happy Smaug.
  14. Conqueror (aka Mega-Zao) is FUN

    Documentation required. Since I already know that's not going to happen, I'm just going to go ahead and declare your statement invalid.
  15. You received four separate sets of recommendations from four separate editors, all valid, all offered blind to your play style. The jokes were obvious enough to be discounted as the fun they were. The only one behaving like a child here is you.
