  1. Per my post, perhaps offering it up in Scenarios would be best for those that want the option of a break from the status quo. Sometimes a pure fun mode is just what the doctor orders - laugh a little. ;)
  2. Hi Folks, Not sure if this has ever been considered. You know how we have Domination, Standard Battle and Epicenter and you never know what mode you will be dropped into. How much fun would it be for WG to add a new mode just for fun into the rotation - Free for All. Instead of 24 ships split into two teams of 12, you get 24 ships spawned in a circle around the map and everyone goes at it to last man standing. Further thoughts: - It would be a rare game mode - Preferably any map because certain ships need island cover and it would be a blast to ambush around islands etc - All classes of ships except carriers ( can't see them having much chance ) - WG would have to limit it to Tier 8 but + 2 / -2 MM still applies? - It would be utter and complete hilarious mayhem - Special award for the winner If they can't make it work in the Random battles rotation, they could put it in Scenarios. I'm sure I haven't thought up all the issues this would need sussed out but I thought I'd give you some granola to chomp on this morning as I sit in a hotel room waiting to go to a meeting. Could you imagine sitting in your Bismarck and clicking in to a Free for All with that ship? Fireworks! Discuss.
  3. Hi Folks, I posted this in General Discussion but it was suggested I post this in Pigeon's Nest. The new game loading screen showing the Scharnhorst and Duke of York with the polar bear and Christmas tree with gifts under it is amazing. In the past WG has had some other incredible art I'd like to have downloaded as well as this one to use as wallpaper./ Can you make this picture available for download, and other backdrops and art work that we've seen for various events over the past year? The only link I can find where I can download wallpapers only has maybe a few of these images. I'd also like to get a copy of the current one with everyone done up as Santa Clauses! Cheers!

  5. Garbage ships at mid tier

    At first I was annoyed at OP's comments but after reading this whole thread I can understand your feelings on the US line. Cleveland, Baltimore and Des Moines have high sides big as barns and invite citadel hits if you expose your sides. Pensacola can be citted from end to end and up the butt and down the throat, New Orleans sides are made of wet toilet paper. -However- I have them all and it took me a few thousand battles ( slow learner - not all in US ships ) to learn to angle Cleveland, Balti and DM at approx 15 to 20 degrees to the enemy, just using bow turrets. Now they are tanky [edited] really obnoxious to kill bouncing almost everything. Pensacola has lethal guns, play it late game ( mopping up damaged ships ) but don't push with it. Early game stay intermediate range and snipe targets of opportunity - stay concealed and light up guys that expose broadsides to you then turn and go conceal. New Orleans lethal - same play style as Pensi. Their guns starting at Pensicola beat the hell out of the bad guys. Baltimore guns are like rail guns. Combined with radar, it is a fun DD hunter. I routinely cit Tier 9/10 battleships in my DM with AP. I have one shotted cruisers in that ship. I'm not the god of war and the be all end all of advice, but that's how I do it. NOTE: Your play style will work for you in early tiers, but when you get to Tier 8 you will find you can't afford the cost of damage and ship losses. Ships and damage are cheap below Tier 6, but you will need to change tactics above Tier 7 as the costs of ships, repair, modules, upgrades, consummables gets prohibitive to forward progress if you play how you've stated up til now. See you in game!
  6. That was funny, and so dam true. How many times do we div up and wait for a buddy to throw on some flags. LOL
  7. I love the Hunter camo. Best looking camo ( IMHO ) in the game and it has great boosts. I can't remember how I got it but I had a limited supply and then it was gone. I haven't seen it since in any containers or other offers. I keep getting that ugly Halloween camo and other junk we've seen too often. SInce they rotate other consumables in the Premium Shop, just asking what the consensus of the player base is if they rotated various camos more in and out of the Premium Shop? Other than the usual "Pay to Win" argument, it stands to reason they offer these more since they rotate other various ships, flags, containers etc. I know everyone has a favorite that goes with their play style and what they are working on. I would buy Hunter camo in copious quantities in a hearbeat if offered. Thoughts?
  8. Gotta hand it to WG - these guys are geniuses with hoovering money out of my wallet! Having a ball buying gifts for friends and myself. Got tons of great camos, an Emden and a Prinz Eugen so far. Woot!! Merry Christmas WG!
  9. Yeah I should stop calling them portholes. Reason I was is because of where they have put them all over the hull, it's almost like that was maybe what they were going for?
  10. Have a look at the stern of Missouri in game and you will see a lot of portholes. And then have a look: http://navsource.org/archives/01/061/016105f.jpg I can't figure out how to post images on this Android phone.
  11. Not sure where this question should go. Zoom in on the hulls in game. They are depicted with overlapping, rivetted plates kind of like what the Titanic had. I've been on three of these ships irl, and just double checked via my extensive personal library that this depiction is wrong. They have smooth welded hulls ( with no port holes ). Note also near the stern you have portholes in the black waterline paint. Also, the gun bucklers ( blast bags ) on the main turrets are shown as an off-white which I've never seen. Any photo of these ships irl show they have / had black bucklers. I realize this isn't earth shattering, but, since you seem to be tweaking ship art details in each patch, could you look at these ones? Cheers!
  12. I don't have a 19 pt captain on my Bismarck. I corrected it in an earlier post. It's 18 pts. My next point is 99999999.
  13. Nice Aswiggin, calling me a liar? Would you like a screen shot? I buy the "All the Bonuses " flag kits and run all the XP bonus flags all the time and went thru over 200 Dragon flags. I currently have over 2.3 million free XP aaccumulated on various ships, and already have near 100,000 green free XP at the top right of my screen that I don't need to convert with doubloons ( which I've earned since getting my Mo a few days ago). And it's pretty obvious why I made this post.
  14. Correction: my Bismarck is a18. pt captain. All I know is my next captain point is at 9,999,999. That being said. RE: Tier 10 meta - with my Bismarck I follow the DD's in and push the caps and hunt for red DD's and CA's. I play that ship aggressively and if I see a smoke cloud I charge it wuth Hydro on and melt bad guys with my manual secondaries. I usually end up brawling red BB's atg about 7 to 11 kms. I play that ship the way it was meant to be played (my opinion). However, the Missouri cannot be played that way, She is too long, has soft sides, starts and stops like a freight train and has crappy secondaries for ship to ship brawling. Hence, I always push in, but more cautiously just to ensure I have my bow pointed at the greatest threats and avoiding torp alleys. She can be deleted even by cruiser fire if sides exposed. I like playing her at 11 to 15 kms from opponents. I always push and support my Cappers, to my own detriment a lot. A lot of toxic comments come from destroyer and cruiser drivers that don't understand the limitations of ship handling a battleship lilke Missouri.
