    Armada: California

    I am glad they did model her. I wanted Nevada. I have almost every 3D ship model that is in the game. LOL I just need to learn how to game program and I could make a game like this that wouldn't have political crapships in it. I know also that they need to make money and that is what a business does, but its also very evident when they keep making stuff like this. I will just buy the 40 dollar one, and call it good. I dont need the damn Flag.

    The Story of Nobuo Fujita

    I did quite a bit of 3D modeling the Glen and SEIRAN planes for [edited]. I have pics of them on my forum topics.
  3. So, I know that Modeling and Development takes time. I have commented on another post about the possibility of having USS Nevada with the post Pearl Harbor attack rebuild on her, and have the ship in the game. Now I discover that you have modeled the USS California in this fashion as a possible T-7 Battleship and I am foaming at the mouth wondering (WHEN) it might come to pass. I am guessing when they release the new Mulan Movie next year. I'm guessing another 100 dollar Admirals pack premium. I would most likely pay it for that ship. I do wish you would model Nevada, also but Eh, who knows. Anyway TY in advance for California.

    Armada: Mainz

    OK, LOL the real skinny. 1. this is a cool concept. 2. I thought of it years ago and posted it on the forum in Feb of 2019. I dont know if I inspired it for WOWS, or not. I dont think its to hard of a stretch to look at the American Cleveland's and Baltimore and figure out that other countries could copy on this concept. I like that they did put it in the game though weather I inspired it or not. 3. One of the things they do though, that chaps my [edited]is make the advertising banners, and write ups as if this was a real historical thing that Germany had planned bock in the 1930's / 1940's. They didn't. They built the 3 Hippers, and the forth one was given to Russia with one forward 203mm gun turret installed. Germany was trying to slip slide out of giving it to them but they had a non aggression pact with them and needed oil. by the time Germany would have finished building the last 2 ships the treaty wouldn't have meant anything, so they would have been built as heavy cruisers. Now with the first 2 M class light cruisers laid down, and most of the materials procured to start on the next 2, I really highly doubt that they would have considered making a Hipper into an oversized light cruiser, even though it would have been awesome if it could be used in that role. Plan Z called for quite a few more light cruisers, and heavy cruisers, so considering that Germany only had 3 heavy cruisers that were designed to escort Battleships, as the Pocket Battleships were to slow to function in this way, then Germany wouldn't give up 2 Hipper class Cruisers to make oversized light cruisers. Now I do hope they will consider Italian dds, and or a few more Italian Battleships in the near future. Andria Doria comes to mind. Unfortune as it is, they will have to make up some of these ships to fill in the tier gaps. There is a 27,000 ton BC design that would be used with 6-15 inch guns. LOL, I would and could help them with this, but they seem pretty adept at making ships and history up without any help.

    Why?? Just why????

    First off to answer your questions, simply, the Game is Rigged! I am not saying that being a cry baby either. They are all Rigged! World of WC, any first person shooter, Brand X (which I wont name or abbreviate). They are rigged if nothing else just by the simple algorythmes that make them run. I am not sure how Rigged they are with the actual programing that makes them do X and Z, but you can bet there is a little of that in there also. If there wasn't then the game would get boring real fast. The issue is like you pointed out. You set up your ship to accomplish certain objectives. You have a sense of strategy, You are a fair player, and or have decent games most of the time. Then you have your operation, and game in line, and Bam. You get gang [edited] by the ai. You eat 8 torpedoes from some DD from 8km and the ships you shoot you are not hardly doing any damage to no matter what you are shooting. You have on HE and they broadside to you, you switch to AP and they turn to nose you. yea, a little convienient that the computer knows where you are, and what you are doing, but you have to guess about them. I swear I have seen torps change direction to hit me. I got so pissed the other day at the AI that I didn't play for a day to breath that S t off. Then I was happy and Irritated that WG took my idea and made the Mainz. I called it Swanewede after a town in Germany that I was stationed by in the Army in 1989 to 92. 2 years ago I posted a kit bash version of the Hipper with 15cm triple gun turrets. (LOL) now if they will take my idea's for an Italian DD Soldati, USS Nevada 1943, and or the Spahkruezer I would be thrilled also. They have already modeled the O class Battlecruiser. They are probably just waiting for a good time to milk the most money out of it. The new German CV's IDK, I will reserve judgement on those. The new T9 German DD, they can adjust the HP, and Damage and range it can shoot. The length and area of smoke, the detectability ect, but it is a T6 model at best with 4-5 in guns, come on its more like the Mass. T9 it should be more like Z52 or Z46. The Spahkruezer should be T10. Anyway enough ranting.
  6. You guys can also buy the cheap one and Grind away. Its nice to get a 10 skill commander and the flag, and the 150 crapload of flags, but is you just want the ship then buy the 47 dollar one. LOL they should give me one for thinking it up.
  7. Uh, Yea, not the Same Fn ship. First of all I thought of the Mainz idea over 2 years ago and have it on another post. If they got the idea from there, then good. They should also take my idea, and make Spahkruezer and O class Battlecruiser. They already have modeled the O class, they are probably just waiting for when they can milk the most money out of it. I posted this on Feb 4 2019. They could have at least gave a Brother a nod. I also have encouraged them to make USS Nevada 1943. BB Andrea Doria. DD Soldati like [edited] did then it disappeared.

    ST, German aircraft carriers, Z-35

    I modeled the SpahKrezer for them and the Schwanevede, 2 years ago. I guess they wernt made up enough.

    Battleship Concept: USS Nevada Tier VII Event Ship

    So, I messed up and made it an edit thinking It was a new reply. I see they ran with my idea to take a Hipper and put 12 - 150mm guns on her. I had come up with this idea about 5 years ago when I was writing my book about the Plan Z ships. It made sense to me that it would have been easier for the Germans to build an oversized light cruiser this way because the M class, and the Modified M class, or Q class designs were having to be enlarged to be able to handle the design tasks, and they were running up the budget to where they would cost almost as much as a Hipper would have cost anyway. Good Job War Gamming, now Build an Andria Doria, a USS Nevada, 1943, and or a Soldati class Italian DD., Or give a lil love to a M class light cruiser that could be T6, or 5 anyway.

    Black Armada

    I am actually somewhat disappointed in the Black fleet/ship concept. I think it is just a money plot by WOWS to make money on a copy and paste basis. What are they going to do next? A white fleet/ships for Memorial day. I would like it much better if they would put out different ships, like for instance The Deutschland cruiser which is similar to Graf Spee, but has a different lay out. Also there is quite a few ships that either were designed and not built, or ships like USS Nevada/Oklahoma/California/Tennessee that people would love to get in game. So again I think instead of just throwing a black paint job on ships that are already in the game, they could put out some new ones, and or let us put different names on ships that are basically identical in class. The Iowa's are so similar that we could have New Jersey and Wisconsin, or if WOWS wants to milk it, then take the Iowa/Missouri model and slightly alter them so they can sell 2 more premiums that aren't a Black Missouri.

    Italian Cruisers: Part 2

    I dont know how to feel about this personally. I will say that it shows great effort on WOWS part and looks like a lot of fun and or work depending on your current view of the game. I have participated in all the events and plan to participate in this one. I am just getting a little burned out on this game, and it isn't their fault. I have and tend to get this way with games. I tend to play games at times that dont have daily's and are self contained, like Total War. I get tired of racing and Grinding for cookies on the MMO's although I see why they need to set it up that way. I have rather enjoyed getting the RN Italian ships, but I think they could have thrown in the couple of DDs that they were working on (even as [edited] as they were reputed as), and or 1 or 2 more Italian BBs. I have personally modeled a 1928 design (23,000 ton Battlecruiser with 6 - 381mm main guns) - (Dante Alighieri) that could be used against Alaska and or maybe like The Scharnhorst sisters. Then there is Aquilla. (Eagle). The Italians had her around 85 to 90% complete. I would love to see her in the game. Maybe in the future. I guess we will see. I just need to get on for a while and get my 2000 points, eat my one cookie and do other things for a while. The Honey Moon is over.

    Italian Cruisers: Branch Review

    I mostly only play Co-op, so I can see where you are all coming from on some of these issues, however I am a caveman tactic kind of alpha male style player so I usually get whacked fairly quickly and or if ignored I kick [edited]. Personally I have enjoyed the hell out of all of the Italian ships. I have stomped DD's, and Cruisers alike, and helped kill BBs, and CVs. I do agree that they cant take hits some what like Atlanta, and I think that yea, the smoke could last just a tad longer, and or if need to be used on the run, could operate even 10 sec longer. I do agree that it is not suppose to be used as a sit and spin style smoke. You use it on the fly as you are shooting at enemy Cruisers. Against DDs, Eh yea, but in all fairness I have a hard time against DDs in almost any cruiser that I have played in Except Atlanta. Compared to other ships you have to lead DD shots so far to the extremes IE like 15 on the aim gage at a full side shot. I have also usually had a difficult time against DD's in DD's. This game being a sandbox/20 min battle limit game set up tends to make it to where the ships get damaged quickly. Other games (ahem) Brand X for one sets up the damage model different so you usually dont experience getting whacked in a few min as much as in this game. Anyway, I have enjoyed playing the Italian Cruiser line. I have them all except the T-8. I usually and mostly play the Kriegsmarine but it was nice to eat some spaghetti instead of potato's and Cabbage for a change.

    Italian Destroyers.

    n/Ship:Leone https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Paolo_Emilio They've been working on the Leone for a long time, and I'm wondering what's up with her. Yeah, they won't tell us. But as I remember the early reviews from the CCs, the Leone was ridiculously bad for tier 6, and might have been pretty lame at tier 5 as well. Her guns were super floaty and she had the same molasses slow 12 km torps as the premium Italian cruisers (and not many of them, to boot). Oh yea, I forgot about that. TY. At least they are coming out with Heavy British Cruisers soon.

    Italian Destroyers.

    LOL, You are probably right. I have a nice little Italian BB for them.
