    Lexington(CV-2) and Taiho Question

    The explosions that rocked Lexington came hours later. The real difference was that the damage control team recognized the impending problem, but were not able to fix it. Informed of the danger, the officers got non-essential personnel up top. The loss of the Lexington taught the USN a valuable lesson. Someone on board the Yorktown nearby came up with the solution of flooding fuel lines with CO2 gas. This made the CV less volatile during non flight operations or when an attack is incoming. The Japanese never really learned this lesson. The Japanese were also forced to use unrefined oil because the US kept sinking the tankers. The oil they used was extremely flammable.
  2. Do what many of us have done. I uninstalled months ago. I linger on these boards hoping to hear some news that might make me try the game again. The longer I wait the less often I check back.
  3. How dare you. You forgot torpedoes being detected from space!

    Wins vs Loss

    I once lost 12 in a row and 14 of 15. I once won 19 in a row. These things tend to even out based on your ability.
  5. With torpedoes and real estate....location, location, location. Also remember, submarine torpedoes you have a much larger warhead than aerial torpedo's. Three hits evenly spaced out in the machinery spaces could do her in. If you want to make a durability claim for the Yorktown class, just look at all of the abuse Hornet took before going down. She took considerable punishment before going down. You may be right in that the class was designed well, but lucky (unlucky) hits can ruin even the best designs.

    ST 0.9.5, detectability with AA firing

    A good start. Now you just need to hard limits CVs to one per match at any tier.
  7. Wargaming announces its new tier 5 premium submarine....

    Boycotting CVs in Clan wars

    Many of us want them gone period. Make that your protest.

    Why CV's suck, and why I do not trust WG

    The simplest solution to your lack of trust is to buy a console and play that version. No CVs. Or you could do like many of us and uninstall. I also see no CVs. I also never complain about MM, power creep and potato players immediately after a blowout loss.

    Crazy ship + solid match = - Karma lol

    I did not watch it. As for me putting out a video, two things prevent this: 1: I have uninstalled this dumpster fire of a game. I check back to see if they ever make the game playable again. 2: When I did play it, I felt no need to post my good games and have others pat me on the back. I played my over-powered premiums too.

    Shocking….you making another video in a premium many considered overly strong. I mean...that never happens.

    What do you think a Modern-day Battleship Would look like?

    With railgun technology, armor is practically useless. Remember what made BBs obsolete was not their armor or their speed, it was the fact that CVs could strike 100s of miles away. Any "battleship" built today would have to be able to reach enemies with supperior fire power at superior distances.

    some people are so stupid its pathetic

    maybe English isn't his main language. You fired them, you own them. If a teammate CAN get in the way of your torps, you must assume he will do so.
  14. They were simply MUCH better than anything we were making at home. We paid them money for a licensing agreement and they suddenly became American made. Problem solved.
