    Jutland - A Reality Check

    I bought this game from Avalon Hill back in the 70's and loved it! I wish that we had a closer computer analog, but I also love WoWS. I particularly enjoy playing the Tier IV - VI ships from the WW I era.
  2. Congrats Zoup! I have enjoyed your content and enjoyed playing with you from time to time. Keep up the good work!

    Premium Ship Review #116: Prinz Eitel Friedrich

    Thank you again LWM, another timely and helpful review!

    Does WG hate skill?

    The assumption of skill is further hampered by the fact that mere persistence allowed many to get overpowered ships that were not available to others, which were then used to gain further rewards. Very much like giving Olympic athletes that win a gold medal a permanent advantage over all other competitors. This was a ridiculous idea from the start, and makes any notion of a true competition, which would require a level playing field for all competitors, a joke. Now WG has chosen to reward a different form of persistence, that of collecting all the high tier ships, with similar, but smaller, rewards. So what? Just to be clear, the only steel ships available from these event in a practical sense are Flint and Black, which had nothing to do with Clan Battles. People who win at Clan Battles still have their unique reward ships, and there is nowhere near enough steel in these events to get those ships. This only affects people who got ships from Ranked Battles.

    Warspite: Yes or No?

    One other thought is that you can get her now for the discount. If you get the sovereigns, then you grab Warspite in the Arsenal, and you get your doubloons back.

    Warspite: Yes or No?

    Warspite is one of the most fun ships in the game IMHO. It is one of my key go to ships when I just want to have some fun. It is a solid credit earner and RN BB trainer, but not outstanding in those roles due to the lower tier. It is obviously an important historical ship. For all of these reasons, I would say that if you enjoy BB play, you should get Warspite.

    Spend Doubloons, Get a T-61

    The button to opt in for this event has disappeared from the page. I just got my doubloons, and now I cannot opt in for spending them. @Femennenly, @Gneisenau013 Whats up?!

    What, pray tell, is an “Izumo Fanboy“, and where can such a mythical creature be found?!

    real life USN cruiser firing arc

    Actually there were no digital fire control systems. They used analog computers with mechanical components to do addition, multiplication and differentiation. Back in the early Dreadnought days, these were fairly simple, and only handled a few variables, but by WWII they were extremely complex and handled many variables. The analog fire control computers are still mounted on all four of the Iowa class BBs because even in the early 1980's, when they had their last major refits, the digital fire control systems were no more accurate than their analog systems.

    sold indy

    I am still working on my cruiser play, but I have found Indianapolis to be a solid ship for winning games. I struggle alot on damage, but her solid guns and radar make her a deadly threat around caps, and that wins games. Indianapolis VII 33 +2 24 +2 9 - 20479 0,55 0,94 888,49 72,73%
  11. Thats true mostly in the US also, but since they did not put the wrong price on any item, it is totally irrelevant. The fact that you don’t like what it does say does not make it misleading.
  12. Sorry, but that is just ridiculous! No one has argued that people should not be able to "earn" free ships by playing the game. They have argued that those ships should not be exclusive. Interestingly I have not seen anyone arguing that some ships should be exclusively available for pay either. I have both purchased and "earned" ships. I see absolutely no justification for making ships exclusively available to just a few players, regardless of the exclusion mechanism. Making cosmetic rewards exclusive allows a feeling of accomplishment, but does not unbalance game play. Exclusive rewards should be purely cosmetic to provide a level playing field. Note that someone earlier suggested offering two identical performing ships with just cosmetic differences, one as a reward, the other for pay or whatever. That seems to me a reasonable compromise that does not negatively impact play balance.

    Legendary Upgrade theory crafting

    My problem with many of these Legendary Upgrades is that they require you to give up the Concealment mod. That is a non-starter for most ships in my view. Gearing is special because it replaces one concealment mod with another, and there are a few that take slot 6 (for instance Republique) which might work out. Overall, I don't see much real benefit for most of these. In particular, I would never give up concealment on Hindy because when the Yamato starts shooting at you, the cloaking device is really handy! Hindy is tanky for a cruiser, but long range 18" AP really hurts!

    How to Control your Win Rate

    Nice attempt at deflecting away from your flawed logic. When you misuse mathematics to try to prove an invalid point you are not "quantifying what you have observed" you are forming invalid conclusions from bad data. Your amusing attempt to characterize my statements as "(win rate dur (sic) to reading)" is equally disingenuous. If you actually read Mouse's thesis, you would know that it has very little to do with reading, and a great deal to do with changing the way that you play and how you think about your performance in the game. In addition, your expectation that players who rank out are more skillful than those who do not is also flawed, and completely without any evidence. Some are extremely skilled, some not so much. Some of the best players in the game do not even take part in ranked. You are trying to take a very small biased sample and apply statistical methods to it. That simply does not work, as any statistics text book will show you. Also, you need to think more about the difference between correlation and causation. They are not the same.
