  1. Taking an already bad mechanic and making it a gimmick for an entire line of ships under the pretext that "it's historical" is such a horrible idea it's not even funny. Do you also want Arizona to be more likely to blow up whenever she comes under attack from an Aircraft Carrier or for USN torpedoes to be plagued with reliability issues?
  2. Spithead Naval Review, 1937

    The ship between Hood and Graf Spee is HMS Resolution

    HMS Agincourt: Historical summary: A Dreadnought Battleship ordered by Brazil in 1911 as the Rio De Janeiro to be built by the British company Armstrong Whitworth. She was sold to the Ottoman Empire whilst still under construction due to the collapse of the Amazon Rubber Boom in 1912 and improving relations with Argentina. She was renamed by the Ottomans and became Sultan Osman I after the founder of the Ottoman Empire. By the start of the First World War the ship was almost complete and there were fears in Britain of an Ottoman-German alliance, she was therefore seized by the Royal Navy under the order of Winston Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty along with another Ottoman Battleship under construction - the Reşadiye which later became HMS Erin. Sultan Osman I was renamed again to HMS Agincourt. HMS Agincourt joined the Grand Fleet in the North Sea and served throughout the First World War, mostly on exercises however she did fight at the Battle of Jutland in 1916. Agincourt's main battery was so fearsome that during the Battle of Jutland when she fired multiple full broadsides, the resulting flash and smoke from the guns combined gave witnesses the impression that she had blown up. After the end of the War she was put into reserve and later scrapped in 1922 to comply with the terms of the Washington Naval Treaty. HMS Agincourt in World of Warships: A tier IV Battleship with a health pool of around 44,000 A top speed of 22 knots Main battery armament of 7 × twin BL 12-inch Mk XIII guns Secondary battery armament of 20 × single BL 6-inch Mk XIII guns and 10 × single 3 in guns which are not dual purpose No AA armament at all. A wartime modification (1917-1918) did add two 3 in AA guns to the quarterdeck but that's of very limited use in WoWS A large turning circle due to her length but overall good maneuverability characteristics, this is not only historically accurate but would help compensate for the fact that she has no AA defence Middle of the road in terms of armour on a tier IV, thicker armour than the Ishizuchi but not as heavily armoured as the Imperator Nikolai
  4. What mods do you use and why?

    If that's the case I'm a serial offender - using and distributing :^)
  5. Except that's not true is it, HMS Rodney engaged Bismarck before Massachusetts was even launched.
  6. Surely that'd be Arizona at Pearl Harbour as the Japanese bombers were carrying 16" AP shells (Nagato iirc) that had been modified to be dropped from an aircraft and to function like a bomb.
  7. British "Treaty" Cruisers

    IIRC Royal Navy 8" HE followed the same pattern as the larger calibre guns in terms of HE performance. The BL 8 inch Mk VIII HE shells had a bursting charge of 23 lbs. or so compared to the 18 lbs. of the IJN 20 cm/50 3rd Year Type mounted on the IJN Heavy Cruisers.
  8. Update 01/03/18: All mods updated and working for Update both here and on my subreddit
  9. Alright, I've updated the download link, should have the casemate textures for Iron Duke now so redownload and it should be fine
  10. Could you post a picture showing the secondaries you mean please
  11. Kitakami

    As I've said before, there are only two ways in which that thing could come back to WoWS; either as a tier IV premium in her as-built configuration i.e. a premium Kuma or as an AI controlled vessel in an Operation.
  12. King George V and Prince of Wales didn't really have much of a paint scheme for Denmark Strait. They were both just a general lightish grey.
