    Submarines: How to Play

    The introduction of submarines would be much more palatable if RAF Coastal Command aircraft were introduced at the same time: Lockheed Electras for spotting, the Short Sunderland (with a Leigh Light would be stupendous) or B-24 Liberators or even PBYs. Even if just one of them was used. Anything that would make a sub captain leave a pile on the deck while he's screaming "Submerge, submerge!" THAT would be tolerable. This new presentation is iffy to me so my wallet stays closed here and in Europe for a good bit while we suss out how subs are going to affect the game.Achtung!

    Pretty much the same here. A mixed crate of economic signals is usually a good buy for me since I almost automatically put all five on the ship. If I can find a deal that allows the purchase of the utilitarian flags above them, I'll usually buy them in quantity. I recently bought 100 of the flags that increase the ship's speed, for instance. Those types of flags I use fairly judiciously, even sparingly because I find that for some reason if I load a ship up with 8 flags and some camo I quite often get blasted/torpedoed out of the water before they can have much effect and that is basically just throwing them away. If I cruise out with just camo the opposite is true. Just RNG, I guess. Cheers

    Thanks, Sovereigndawg. I always make sure they have no way of charging stealthily. Eg. In Warplanes I always turn off Automatic Resupply of components and ammo for each plane. You don't want to get charged for something you may not even look at again for a long time. I do buy from the Premium shop, but only after I've taken a look at all the alternatives. It's a shame we have to watch out for money traps but that's the way it is. Cheers

    Thanks, Duckman. One?! That's a heckuva price to pay for a one-use item so no sale for this sogbottom. I already make a practice of choosing only Sigs & Camos from containers and on occasion will buy camo from Premium where you can buy them in sets of 50 or 100 etc. I'm just astounded that they would have the cojones to charge 125 gold for a one-use camo. That's insane. Thanks for the quick reply. GL&GH

    There are camos for sale under the Exterior tab in the harbour, one for 125 gold and another for 50. Nowhere is there any information about quantity. Am I paying for one? 50? 100? I'm not about to throw down gold on an unknown quantity so any information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    server blow up????

    Bummer. I assume you've closed all programs running with the Task Manager, cold-booted your machine, unplugged your router for about 45 seconds and then tried it. Coldest of classic cold boots. Good luck

    WoWs fans seriously try World of Warplanes!

    Yes, it has joystick support. I used to use mouse and board, now I use a Logitech Extreme3D Pro joystick and keyboard left hand for functions I don't want on the stick. Quite playable with a stick. In fact I wouldn't want to play the game without it.

    Rest in piece, Stan Lee

    We have lost a legend. Rest In Peace, Stan, and thank you.
  10. Thanks for sharing. It was very interesting, especially the part about accidentally rolling a Victor III sub 360 degrees!
  11. 5:48 pm EST Wow! I didn't expect this kind of reaction when I posted what I thought was basically a gripe. Coming to WoWS from WoT where kill stealing is frowned upon and not knowing the cultural difference between the two games, I just griped and figured that it would be ignored. Surprise! I thoroughly understand the difference in the ethics of the two games now and thanks to all who contributed their wisdom, kindly worded or otherwise. As my old man said many, many years ago, "What you lose on the swing you make up on the roundabout." You can rest assured, though, that I will still be checking the results at the end of each battle because making 6 kills, which is my max, kicks butt! *** I have been playing for about three weeks now in co-op and there is only one issue I have, that of losing a kill to an opportunist. I realize we all play to kill off all the enemy ships and take any opportunity to do so, so I don't think there is much in the way of actual kill stealing going on, heat of battle, fog of war, etc. However, it is very frustrating to spend three of four minutes wrecking a BB with a Cruiser, alone, and when his health is down to a couple of kill shots, someone waltzes by, puts a couple of shells into him and GETS THE KILL. This has happened to me more than once and it is infuriating, especially with a battleship because they take a lot of work to kill. Has it ever been proposed that the kill should go to the person that did the most damage to a ship? And that the person who actually puts the last shell through it should get an Assist instead of a kill? If that proposition has not been made, I am making it now. Devs, could you at least please look at the situation and consider whether a more equitable method might be arrived at? This is my first post in a new game so if I have misposted or done something wrong, please correct and let me know. I would be very interested in hearing from other players and, of course, from the Devs, on this subject.
