  1. Pirate's Bounty Weekend

    EVENT STARTS: Fri. Aug. 17 2:00 PM PT EVENT ENDS: Sun. Aug. 19 6:00 PM PT https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/community/argh-n-g/
  2. *pictured - USS Essex being struck by a Japanese kamikaze plane off the Philippine Islands (11/25/1944) After a crippling hit to your ship, how do you cope with controlling the damage and staying in the fight? No matter what class of ship you're taking to battle, staying afloat means you're able to help your team towards victory. However, sustaining heavy damage or having equipment knocked out is a challenge all ship captains must learn to deal with and manage. Consumables, equipment, signals, and captain skills all contribute to staying alive and continue the fight against the enemy fleet. When you are on the receiving end of a critical strike, how do you keep yourself afloat and continue the fight? "I have just taken on a great responsibility. I will do my utmost to meet it." - Chester Nimitz, US Navy #throwdownthursday #anchorsaweigh
  3. Goodbye Aretha Franklin

    @Chaos_EN2 She was an American icon and I think this is fine here in Off-Topics. #queenofsoul #anchorsaweigh
  4. *pictured - HMS Duke of York fighting rough seas and gale force winds in the North Atlantic (1943) When the cyclone hits the fleet during battle, how do you adjust your gameplay? Visibility and spotting become a challenge for both fleets as they are still expected to complete the objective of the game. In addition, communications between the fleet becomes disrupted as spotting information is disrupted and intel gathered doesn't make it through to the entire fleet. Often times, only you are the one that is able to face off against the enemy vessel alone. When the mother nature unleashes her fury, do you change up your battle plan or continue on with the your current tactics? "Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly." - John F. Kennendy, US Navy #weatherfrontwednesday #anchorsaweigh
  5. Who have you seen in game

    What you saw last night is actually how I typically play destroyers regardless of type and build. I'm a big believer in gathering intel for my team to help to pick off ships on the enemy team. Match well played and see you back with the Fleet soon! "Never fear the enemy but always respect them." - John Basilone, US Marine Corps #anchorsaweigh
  6. I will gladly be your lead blocker as long as you stay behind me and make sure my efforts do not go in vain! But yes, when I play a destroyer my battle plan is to provide spotting for my team so they can start picking off targets of opportunity! "It's better to fight for something than live for nothing!" - George S. Patton, US Army #anchorsaweigh
  7. *pictured - RADM Merrill and Capt. Brown on board USS Montpelier on 12/23/1943 preparing for operations in the Solomon Sea How do you take advantage of your allies spotting enemy ships? Advancing destroyers and fast cruisers that push towards the objective or in the direction of the enemy base begin revealing enemy ships. Often times larger battleships and heavy cruisers are detected first but aggressive destroyers also attempting to spot are themselves revealed as well. The big guns rely on the advanced scouting ships for spotting targets while the scouts in turn depend on good fire support and protection to stay alive and keep spotting the enemy. When the enemy fleet gets lit up, what's your plan to take the fight to them? "We can accomplish anything provided no one cares who gets the credit." - Joe Rochefort, US Navy (Naval Intelligence officer who decoded the IJN attack on Midway) #tacticaltiptuesday #anchorsaweigh

  9. Potatoes Spamming Report

    Fleet, When posting on the Forums, the OP must be constructive and refrain from shaming other players. Since the OP of this thread did not meet both criteria, I am concluding any further commenting and discussions. Remember to keep all threads and posts civil, respectful and constructive. #anchorsaweigh
  10. *pictured - USS Massachusetts during a typhoon in the Central Pacific, 1944* Which battleship was the toughest/most difficult to learn to play but is now one of your favorite? The various nation tech-trees offer unique traits and characteristics for their heavy hitters of the fleet. However each ship, whether tech-tree or premium, has their own strengths and vulnerabilities which every ship captain must recognize in order to use her effectively in battle. Of all the battlewagons in game, which one was a thorn in your side to master but now is one of your most lethal weapons? "This ship is built to fight. You had better know how." - Arleigh Burke, US Navy #motivationmonday #anchorsaweigh
  11. Which destroyer is the best of its class at Tier IV? Japanese, American, Pan-Asia, Russian, and German destroyers engage in both torpedo and gun attacks on each other and the larger vessels. Each nation has its distinct characteristics and traits that fit individual play styles to wreak havoc and destruction to the enemy fleet. When it comes to Tier IV destroyers, which one is the best of the best? "The mark of a great shiphandler is never getting into situations that require great shiphandling." - Ernest King, US Navy #fightingfridays #anchorsaweigh
  12. I put my name again for to be a super tester and I have not  no answer

  13. On the map "Fault Line", how big of a threat is the eastern strait to your fleet and base? The waterway is narrow and is in tight spaces providing little room for maneuvering and evading incoming fire and torpedoes. However, if unchecked or unchallenged, the opposing side can exploit this threatening both your eastern flank and your base. When doing battle on "Fault Line", what's your plan for the eastern gauntlet of terror? "Never fear the enemy but always respect them." - John Basilone, US Marine Corps #threatassessmentthursday #anchorsaweigh

"One accurate measurement is worth a thousand expert opinions." - Grace Hopper, US Navy #anchorsaweigh
