  1. The flawed Bayern gunnery tests massively screwed that generation of British BBs - it turned out there were much better off with lower velocity/heavy shells. I take kind of a middle stance in this debate - Nagato was wholly superior to Nelson. However, outside the guns, the G3s were an amazing design that would have outclassed pretty much any battleship or battlecruiser until Iowa. So... Britain was definitely still innovating in the late teens/early twenties - they just couldn't build before the Washington Naval Treaty cut them down at the knees.
  2. But do we really need a fourth Amagi/similar. Yes, okay, Tosa was a battleship - but it's the same guns, layout, silhouette, AA, etc. The Tosas weren't even all that more well-armored than Amagi, which was pretty much an all-around better ship.
  3. I'd kill for a late-war Kongo sister. Haruna was great at the end, too - massed AA, and that funky raised rear funnel. Either would be lovely. An AA-heavy uptiered Kongo would be amazing.
  4. Please try to understand that not every tool is a sledgehammer, and that surgical implement can be utilized to do decent (if only passable) things, if you'd only stop trying to ineffectively bludgeon people with it.

    Bit of disappointed with the P.E.F. campaign camo

    The traverse can be made to work. You're right about the drag, though. This is a ship that can barely do ANYTHING to enemy BBs. Some upper belt/superstructure work is the best you can hope for. If they're angled or beyond 10km? Har har.

    So, if I buy the ship, do I still have to "unlock" the ship to get this camo?

    WoWS Dev Blog: New CV Gameplay Coming With 0.8.0

    Well, the Battle of the Denmark Straits and the Battle of North Cape both immediately come to mind. There are plenty of others, too...

    My instant, gut reaction:
  9. I have a feeling that people are spending too much time shooting at BBs in this thing.

    Premium Ship Review #116: Prinz Eitel Friedrich

    Just given what I have seen, I am increasingly convinced that this ship needed torpedoes. They would have rewarded aggressive play (which is all the more risky in a ship without a turtleback), and perhaps coaxed potatoes out of sniping.

    Missed opportunity with PEF holiday campaign

    Why should people have to do unfun things in video games? This question isn't exclusive to WoWs, obviously, but it seems pretty applicable every time someone tries to defend one of these grinds with an "uphill both ways to school in a nuclear winter" arguments.

    Premium Ship Review #116: Prinz Eitel Friedrich

    If the KM BBs are any indication, every single non-premium will have some absolutely heinous "what-if modernization" done to inflicted on it. Which is, frankly, tragic, as the High Seas Fleet boasted what were, in my opinion, the best looking capital ships of the Great War.
