  1. Wellp, no completion for me then. Been playing the game 2 years and the best I have is a 16 pointer. Good luck to everyone else.
  2. Addendum to the previous: Can we expect Haida sometime before the next ice age? Haida or riot!!! ... Politely. (Sorry.)
  3. Air Martial Douglas J.E Clark Unknown - RCAF, North African Front. December 7, 1909 - January 12, 1976
  4. As great as "The Maple Leaf Forever" is, it was never an official national anthem of Canada. The lack of French lyrics, and multiple British references peeved the francophones in Quebec too much for it to ever really be in consideration.
  5. Why: The Haida is Canada's version of the USS Enterprise; most decorated Canadian warship left afloat, last Tribal-class destroyer in one piece and what better way to celebrate Canada being (over) 150 years old by the time she gets released? Also, Haida is the one ship I would not hesitate to open my wallet for. ;P Commonwealth Tree?: Definitely. There won't be enough ships to make a Canadian tree unless you add Frigates as a playable class, and a Commonwealth branch to the RN tree could be interesting in it's own right. Tier: Somewhere between tier 5 and 8. It depends on where you want to put the Tribal class on the RN line. General Thoughts: What I've said and what others can say in favour of adding her. *Shrugs*
  6. Me thinks I recognize my Nagato's stern in that last pic. Really needs a censor bar though.
  7. There goes Mouse, farming +1s again. Take one of mine. xD
  8. One time, a couple of people I division with sometimes were bored of playing normally, so we decided to all load up in our Molotovs (don't downvote yet plz... oh wait.). Now, this wasn't planned or anything, but I decided to take the initiative in the first battle by typing out approximately the following into all-chat at the beginning of the match. "Greetings and welcome to "Fire Safety 101" featuring the Molotov Squad! If you have any burning questions in regards to fire safety, we'll be happy to serve you first, Comrade! o7" Usually that got a reaction. By about the fifth game we had a "Oh Christ, not YOU GUYS again!" and there was much raging. (And I also got the rest of the div to put on their worst Russian accents in voice coms. xD)
  9. Marblehead is going too, but considering I am the only one to mention her, you can see how many people care.
  10. What I am seeing the most of here is "Firing behind allies" Well, what about incidents like my latest where the Enemy had their torpedo beats going and a teammate suffered the consequences? Story: I was in my ARP Takao and were were on Shatter in domination mode. We're steamrolling the Enemy team at A cap (or whichever the western one is) and pushed in to their last Bismarck. I had a perfect chance to torp him earlier, but an ally was in front of me, so I held my fire. I got within 1.5KM or so and shot my torps at the indicator on the almost parallel Bismarck. However, the Bismarck slams on the breaks and turns in, missing all but one of my torps. Bismarck is killed by a friendly Iowa about 6 - 7 km behind the Bismarck and going pretty slowly, so considering he has full sight on my torps I don't warn him. He speeds up and, being very low on HP takes one and dies. One of his buddies decides to be a winner later and shoot at me, ram me, block me, etc, and the guy himself behaves like child who just learned how to swear, for no reason and the enemy team is all "HAhaha, the only loss on their team is a TK". I didn't notice I had TKed anyone until the end of the (victorious) battle. I have national voice overs and never heard Japanese for 'we've sunk an allied battleship' and I was kind of focused on killing a Fletcher at the time of the incident, and my Division mates didn't clue me in on it, so I had no idea what had happened. I can be a little clueless sometimes, yes, but it was an unprecedented situation for me. Had I noticed, I would have apologized and owned up to my mistake... but yeah, the guy turned into a raving, childish [edited] before (presumably) quitting the match so my sympathy after-the-fact diminished. (And he reported me twice xD) Still, just in case that Iowa driver is here reading this: Sorry mate, my fault. Bismarck euro-beated my point-blank shot. *Shrug* (Lesson Learned: Don't shoot torps at close enemies unless you are 100% certain they can't dodge ALL the damn torps)
  11. Awesome! Thanks for sharing, Dodge! Y'all better hurry if you want to get one. I had to go though at least 70 of them until I could redeem one. (DAER6W8-7Y2VF-DN8PM-NR6ZW was used by me.) @RumblingMouse Yeah, I just went through the list at random until I hit gold. It's all you can do really. =/ Keep trying. I was about to give up too. (I too would like to thank WG for all the cool contests and events for free ships over the year as well, to get this thread back on topic. Even the forum contests like ship-design and top exp/damage. You guys have been so generous. Thanks for a ship-filled 2016 and here's to an epic 2017 to come. o7)
  12. I don't have a ton of premium ships to begin with, so I don't have a lot of Port Queens. Mikasa: I Fought so hard to get the 150 kill mission done for her on time. I'm not regretful for doing that, don't get me wrong, it's just that with the new restrictive Match Maker, she ALWAYS sees T3's and only really shone when she got the chance to bully some tier 1s or 2s with her hilarious secondaries. (Free) Diana: Slow, slow, slow. 3rd slowest ship in the game, and the arcs on her guns are on USN DD levels when you get out much farther than 7km. Did I mention that she's stupid slow? If you get caught in a tough spot, hope you have some friends coming to take the heat off because you are NOT getting away. Also, new MM and 100% chance of T3s. Not too fun getting <edited> on by St Louis and Bogyatr and being unable to really run away. (Free) Marblehead: Even when she was in her prime, she struggled just a little bit next to her tech tree and Soviet cousins the Omaha and Murmansk respectively. First off, the AFT nerf no longer giving her good gun range hurt her quite a bit and made her less fun to play as you needed to get closer. The final nail in the coffin came with the new MM spread. If I take her out, I feel more like a liability to the team than any sort of force. Now that the Royal Navy cruisers have come out? May as well call her "Free XP Please Shoot" (Free) Molotov has been disused for a little while, but I still take her out from time to time and have fun in her, so she's not a port queen. Tirptiz is my newest, but used sparingly because I am not used to T8+ MM yet. Blyskawica is bliss, but I don't have much time to play and I'd rather make progress on a tech tree ship, so she's more for stress-relief or for when I get tired of trying to grind something. Emden is still a little bit fun to play, but like Mikasa, she constantly sees T3s so it's more work.
  13. Some people need to get over themselves. If it a grind? Kinda if you don't have a lot of time due to work/family/upcoming holidays. Is it not creative to have one 110k base xp mission chain after another? A little. Is it a pain to gate the new rewards at the very end while getting nothing or little in the meantime if you have everything else? Kinda. Now... is anyone forcing you to play these missions? Now, now, before you go "but I want it!" stop for a moment and think about it. Really think about it. Done? Good. Mission 5 is three captains and a flag. It's NOT WORTH making a fuss over, if you ask me. And if, like me, you are a completionist and want it anyway? Let me take a saying from Eve Online. *AHEM* HARDEN THE F<orcastle> UP!
  14. I don't have a lot of premium ships, (I only bought the Blys, Molotov and Tirpitz) so in theory this would be a great boon to me, but I don't think I could open my wallet for these bundles. They're already into the iffy range for me at the US prices. I am Canadian, so add another 25% - 30% on top of that? No way. I am disappointed. I was hoping for a discount on some ships like Warspite, or Arizona coming back to the store for a little while. =/ Ah well. There's always Shipsmas, I guess.
  15. Back to the Future was only a year off. Not bad for a movie made 31 years ago!
