    Miss browsing the forums for a few days and things explode. Lol

    130 pulls, 4 Yorktowns, not a single Hornet. Which one is supposed to be the UR again?

    Is it just me or is Edgar seriously underwhelming?

    So instead of removing the problematic gimmick (burst fire) combining with radar the response that would've not compromised fundamental aspects of the ship WG took the approach of "break the ship to fix the gimmick". I do not like it when they deliberately undercut fundamental core aspects of the ship to ram a gimmick through for the sake of the gimmick rather than just ditching the problematic gimmick. This is present in the Dutch cruisers where their gunnery is fundamentally mediocre to compensate for the airstrikes. At least the airstrikes are very unique as a partial saving grace. Burst fire is nowhere near unique enough to play balance gymnastics with a ship. Is this arming threshold told to players in game anywhere and spelled out very clearly? Because this also runs counter to the oft repeated "smooth progression" model WG has trotted out when convenient. This is not smooth progression, you have an entire preceding line with unique arming thresholds that informs players to utilise the ships and their guns a specific way. Then come the super ship (T11) that abandons this concept, that is not smooth progression.

    Lert! Your time has come! Tromp approaches!!!!

    Another review by Maltese Knight for those wanting multiple sources to get as much info as possible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swpeiNu9yFY <-Link in case embed doesn't work. Watched a bit of Maltese's video she has some funky armour where the citadel is (I know a DD no real citadel) but depending on how the 30mm sections interact with certain AP she might be susceptible to full pen damage.
  5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAjud8wGaNY <- Link in case embedded video doesn't work. Some points mentioned in the video: Apparently at the time of drawing there was no naval yard in the world capable of making it due to size. Main armour belt was close to the length of an Iowa. Flight deck would have had trouble with later war carrier aircraft. If construction had gone ahead almost certainly would have ended up being converted into a Carrier. I forgot the numbers mentioned but they were comparing the necessary SHP for moving it to the Gerald R Ford Carriers.

    You will know it when you see it.

    Would you mind throwing a link to that tool. Been looking for something to mess around with equips but couldn't find anything that would actually tell me the timings when accounting for skills and things like HPFCR buffs.

    This rerun was great for farming XP.
  11. The title of the video is about whether Iowa and Hood were fast battleships or battlecruisers. But the meat of the video is breaking down the origin and use. Interesting listen as always though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkSY_ALpBQQ <- In case video embeds screw up.

    Honestly unless you are actively using the ships finish the retrofit for the sake of archives, counts towards that completion percentage. Otherwise, shrug.

    For a moment when reading the ship specific augments I read it as Laffey's is a pillow, as in her melee weapon is a pillow. I thought that is hilarious and fitting. But closer read seems to indicate that that pillow is just a nickname for Laffey in the notes or something. Well I can still hope.

    IIRC Helena Meta is pretty strong taking into account building for her skills.
