  1. Greatest Forgotten Commanders

    IMO, Admiral Willis A "Ching" Lee Who commanded Battleships on the Pacific from the Fall of 1942 to August of 1945. This includes the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal http://www.historynet.com/second-naval-battle-of-guadalcanal-turning-point-in-the-pacific-war.htm
  2. With penalaties due to inactivity, how do I control that, if my isp connection crashes, or on occassion, or mid game the game crashes on my computer ? I know I am not the only one this has happened to.
  3. LAGGING & kick offs

    My problem today is hang ups in play, Everything freezes from my standpoint, for 5 or 10 seconds then my ship and screen jump ahead I cannot fire or manuver nor do repairs or put out fires, but everything happens around me.
  4. The Pigeon's Mess

    I will agree with this idea wholeheartedly.
  5. Agincourt, unique design.. something different.
  6. USS Houston

    Houston never received any 40 mm Bofors, and in fact, during it's late 1939's refit it lost it's torpedos in order to add, the after pair of 28 mm/1.1" AA mounts. That said YES! also the "Galloping Ghost of the Java Coast" deserves all the AA plus torpedos, as well as the high rate of fire she was claimed to produce, 4 rounds + a minute., and spotters rather than fighters.
  7. Agree in the most part on U.S. CA'S Pensacola 6, Northampton 7, with Houston Premium,( A hull on Northamptons should have the 2 x 3 torpedo tubes) New Orleans 8, with Wichita as Premium, Baltimore 9, Des Moines /Oregon City at 10.. Indianapolis as Premium. cruiser. CL, Omaha 5, Cleveland 6, Brooklyn 7 with Helena Premium, Fargo 8, Worchester 9, or insert Atlanta at 6 or as a Premium at 6.
  8. Historically this ship was a tier 5 time frame ship,, heavy guns, weak AA, weak secondaries, virtually no armor. in the real world thisships advantage, was the range of it's guns and a good rate of fire, weakness is armor barely better than the Omaha's and historically weaker in torpedo protection than following classes. make it a tier 5.
  9. As a Class of American Cruiser I would love to see the Heavy Cruiser class the Northampton's.Tier 4 or 5, Hull A as built 3 x 3 8" guns, 4 x 1 x 5"/25 cal AA/secondary 2 x 4 1.1" AA, 6 x 1 x.50 cam MG,and the main class of CA's to mount torpedo tubes, 2 x 3 x21" torpedo tubes.; Hull B (1937-38 refits) Hull B 3 x3 x 8", 8 x 1 5"/25 cal AA/Secondary, 4 x 4 x 1.1" AA, 6 x 20mm AA.: Hull C 1943 +; 3 x 3x 8", 8 x 1 x 5" 25 cal AA/Secondary, 6 x 4 40mmAA, 8-10 x 1 20mm. You even have a premium for this class the USS Houston of Asiatic Fleet fame. Configure as Hull B but give the ROF as though -75% of hit points. Just my idea.. Thanks for listening.
  10. What about the USN's premier Battleship Gunnery officer Admiral Willis A Lee.
  11. I love the game but as a Naval history fan get frustrated with certain things. Especially the Germans who had the ability to regularly knock out their own fire control at longer ranges when firing abeam or on a rear angle Also their destroyers when running at full speed (Boost) could frequently have an engine failure. .I don't know if this has been suggested, but add the USN Northampton class Cruiser, with the initial build ca 1936, prior to the removal of their triple torpedo tubes, while that only gives them the 5"/25cal and 2 x4 1.1" AA guns. the upgrade to 4x4 or 6 x4 1'1"'s or 40 mm batteries, requires that the torpedoes are removed as in the real world because of weight. This would allow the addition of a USS Houston ( the Galloping Ghost of the Java coast) as a premium.
