    Thunderclap Thursday - Citadel Strikes

    Oooops, I meant which ship do you score the most citadel hits in.

    Thunderclap Thursday - Citadel Strikes

    It's always good times cruising for a bruising in the Hotlanta! #anchorsaweigh

    Thunderclap Thursday - Citadel Strikes

    I'll allow it! A citadel hit is a citadel hit! #anchorsaweigh
  4. *pictured - USS O'Brien (DD-415) struck by a torpedo launched by IJN submarine I-19 with USS Wasp on fire in the distance in the South Pacific on September 15. 1942* Which ship(s) in your Fleet have your gunnery scored the most citadel hits? Striking the citadel with your main guns or from dive bomber strikes gives the enemy vessel pause and puts in tactical control of the engagement. Citadel hits are often what the Fleet needs to to shift supporting fire towards the wounded vessel and turn the tide of the battle. Which warship(s) in your port bring the thunderclap to strike fear and citadel hits to the enemy fleet? "One hundred rounds do not constitute fire power. One hit constitutes fire power." - Merrit Edson, U.S. Marine Corps #thunderclapthursday #anchorsaweigh

    Triple Threat Tuesday - Multi-role cruisers

    I'm finding myself playing more CAs and CLs lately, especially with Tier VI+ when there is the increased possibility of double Enterprise/Graf Zepplins appearing on the horizon.

    Triple Threat Tuesday - Multi-role cruisers

    Prinz Eugen got the call to engage battleships and cruisers while fighting off 2 CVs on the enemy fleet. We held off an assault on our base and managed to get some citadels in too! "If you're not making waves, you're not under weigh." - Chester Nimitz, U.S. Navy #anchorsaweigh
  7. *pictured - HMS Belfast (C35) moving alongside USS Bataan (CVL-29) off the Korean Peninsula on May 27, 1952* Do you command any cruisers in your Fleet that are multi-purpose? Cruisers are meant to be high damage output vessels capable of engaging all types of warships. They can also serve other roles in denying areas with torpedoes, screening against destroyers, air defense, and advanced sensors/detection equipment. Of the cruisers at your service, which ones pose a "triple-threat" to the enemy fleet?

    Man Battlestations Monday - Airstrike Defense

    In this case, the 2 enemy CVs (Kaga and Enterprise) kept chasing after me and dealt almost 1.2 million in potential damage. Luckily Chung Mu was successful in evading lethal bomb, torpedo and rocket attacks and took down quite a few planes in the process.

    Man Battlestations Monday - Airstrike Defense

    I found that even in my Missouri, which has a fairly formidable AA defense rating, I was fighting off waves and waves of attack, dive, level, and torpedo bombers from an Enterprise and Implacable. They managed to deal 127k+ damage to me but I shot down 98 aircraft. Had I not specced both the captain and ship to AA I don't think I would've survived the battle. "Victory was never in doubt. Its cost was." - Graves Erksine, U.S. Marine Corps #anchorsaweigh
  10. *pictured - USS Savannah (CL-42) providing anti-aircraft cover for Operation Avalanche off the coast of Sicily on September 10, 1943* Are you re-equipping your Fleet and re-training your crews to counter incoming airstrikes? Fleet actions are seeing an increase of aircraft harassing and laying destruction on Allied warships. While some continue on course with their current crew and load-out, others are re-arming and preparing their crews for the terror from the sky. When an incoming airstrike approaches, are you staying the course or shifting your firepower towards the sky? "Flying is hours and hours of boredom sprinkled with a few seconds of sheer terror." - Gregory "Pappy" Boyington, U.S. Marine Corps #manbattlestationsmonday #anchorsaweigh
  11. *pictured - Sgt. Kilpatrick ready to take charge of incoming recruits at MCRD San Diego, CA on March 21, 2017* I wanted to personally thank the World of Warships community for their interest in the latest SuperTest recruitment cycle! Over the past 3 days, we not only met our goal for recruitment applications but saw quality and in-depth responses from those that wanted to put their best foot forward. Hats off to all of you that expressed interest and submitted an application. Semper Fidelis to all of you and for being loyal members of the World of Warships community! "If you do something once, people will call it an accident. If you do it twice, they call it a coincidence. But do it a third time and you've just proven a natural law!" - Grace Hopper, U.S. Navy #yellowfootprints #anchorsaweigh
  12. *pictured - USS Nevada (BB-36) departing Hampton Roads en route to the Mediterranean Sea on September 17, 1944* Which battleship in your fleet do you rely on for getting the job done? Not dependent on ship tier, your top battleship is the one you take to battle with pride and confidence. In addition, the capabilities of this battlewagon complimented with a skillful crew and good seamanship are what sets your top battleship above the rest in your homeport. When your battlewagon gets the call from the old man, which one in your flotilla gets under weigh into harm's way? "If you're not making waves, you're not under weigh." - Chester Nimitz, U.S. Navy #fightingshipfriday #anchorsaweigh Ready for Anchors Away?
  13. Ahoy Fleet! There are some developments with our skippers that get into battle on Mac OS. Check out this comment and the thread for more details: One of the staff taking point on Mac OS feedback is actively engaging in the thread so it is a good opportunity to provide information that may result in a better game experience. Also, I'm moving the discussion over to the Support section since it will generate more visibility especially for the development team there. #anchorsaweigh

    Retaliatory Strike Tuesday - Hitting Back

    Maybe, if I'm sailing in force then I tend to turn towards to minimize aspect and return fire...especially if I'm sailing in a battleship or sometimes a cruiser. In a destroyer, I opt for minimizing damage so I need to determine the following: Who's shooting at me? Do they have detection consumables? (radar, hydro) Is there cover nearby? Who's backing me up? If it's a destroyer engagement, that means I'm too close for comfort and need to create some space to properly engage and watch out for incoming torpedoes. Smoke is helpful in evasion but limits my visibility to spot for my supporting fire and leaves me blind for a possible torpedo spread. "Retreat, hell! We're not retreating, we're just advancing in a different direction." - Oliver P. Smith, U.S. Marine Corps #anchorsaweigh
