    Weekly Combat Missions: India Independence Day

    Not a single Indian ship in the game... And you better not forget about the 75th anniversary of VJ day, which is TODAY.

    You win some, you lose some. It's how multiplayer games go. If you are on a losing streak, take a break or play a co-op game.

    Azur Lane: Third Wave

    What percentage of my money goes to China when I buy any of this.

    His flight path over the USA, lol.

    ST, soviet cruisers branch split

    Well f__k me for buying a Mosvka camo all those months ago. Hoping WG reconsiders and either refunds me the 5000 doubloons or gives me a camo for the Nevsky. Pretty pissed that compensation was not mentioned. Also, if we get Moskva regardless of whether or not we own her, it sounds like I should sell mine before she's made a special ship to get more credits out of it.

    Sorry. Another Moskva Question.

    Don't get the premium camo. At the moment, you'll get a premium camo for free when Moskva is made a special ship. You will get no compensation (WG has mentioned none thusfar, so assume the worst). Ideally WG would give you a premium camo for the Nevsky when its released if you own the Moskva and her premium camo, unfortunately this has not been confirmed and I wouldn't expect it. They did this during the US cruiser line split.

    disappearing enemy

    I don't think realism was really ever on the docket in a game where aircraft are phased into reality, guns have infinite barrel lives and shells, torpedoes have unlimited reloads, and hit points exist. But please, keep trying to echo the "realism" argument.
  8. Ah yes, adding one feature to entertain one person and definitely not the hundreds of thousands of other players who actively play the game, or the hundreds of big league community contributors who could definitely use a competent replay system.

    IFHE/plating changes made simple (T10)

    Depends what's shooting it, really. Smoli's armor reduction has the more important nerf of making her sides, previously 70mm thick on the belt, overmatchable by 406mm guns. This means, even angled, 16" guns (which is often the most common caliber BB gun at tier 8-10) will punch right through your belt and touch your citadel. Given that Smolensk isn't very difficult to citadel broadside, I'd say overall her durability will take a big hit from this - but I haven't played the PT extensively with her, so I don't know how she'll actually perform.

    Oh, My Captains, My Captains....

    I generally just reset everything I can except the ships I'm actively playing or ones I know won't be affected by changes. Bit of a bummer, I wanted to play some Daring tonight but I'm going to keep her captain reset in case I forget to do it later...

    Ship That Just Don't Feel Right

    Kiev. A long time ago in a WoWS far far away when it was tier 7, it was fun as hell (and OP) and very easy to play. After adjustment to tier 8 I seriously can not get to grips with this DD. Being bottom tier DD probably doesn't help a ton, especially for a dedicated gunboat. Now it mostly sits in my port as a reminder of the 'good old days.'

    Get Smolensk Now or Wait For Nuestrashimy To Go For Coal?

    As hard as it is for me to say it, because the Smolensk is utter cancer and rightfully deserves to be removed from the game... ...I can't logically recommend not getting it if you have the means to acquire it. If you can get it, get it. It's going away, lord knows when/how/if you'll ever be able to get it again. Just don't forget to take a shower.

    What should be my next tier X?

    Moskva, easily. Given that she's going away (along with Kirov, so make sure you have her too!), it's a no-brainer to get her while you still can. IMO.

    Might have picked the wrong line to Grind? IJN DDs

    For me it's all about consistency. I just can't find torpedo-based ships that consistent with my playstyle, so I typically tend to stay away from them.

    Might have picked the wrong line to Grind? IJN DDs

    Don't bother with the Shimakaze. It's the most handicapped & forgotten tier 10 destroyer you could possibly get. DDs already suffer by being situationally powerful ships, but the Shimakaze line especially takes that to a whole new level. You could go 1 game with 250,000 damage from floods & torpedoes to 15 in a row below 30k with maybe 1 or 2 torpedo hits. And with a class that can be as game-to-game variable as a destroyer, you want all the consistency you can get, something Shimakaze won't give you. I'd backtrack for the Akizuki - Harugumo line if you still want something Japanese. Otherwise you have the Gearing and Fletcher, both of which are probably the best torpedo boats in the game (Gearing torpedo build is actually fun & viable, do recommend). British DDs are also good if you haven't tried them out yet.
