    How do you grind a ship line

    I wanted Emerald, Fiji, and Edinburgh on the RN side, Cleveland, Baltimore, and Des Moines on the USN side, and all the IJN CAs to Mogami, which I still do not have as I ground a whole lot of other lines in between and am currently at Myoko. I have all the RN T10s and all the surface combatants. I don't play CVs all that much and did not grind the USN CVs after the rework.I have reset my USN CLs in a grind to get Colbert for RB tokens. I have 156 ships in port and am contemplating downsizing everything once I have Mogami, keeping only the ships I play well in or for their historical links.

    USN BB Re-balance/Split

    Just get the real ships in the game, We'll cope nicely with them...
  4. See them in co-op about once per hundred games or so, mostly in early morning games overloaded with bots, but in randoms hardly ever. I have two draws in 7700 random games and have not had a draw game in random play over two years.

    Euro Destroyers Part 1 - PTS directive preview

    I was expecting at least two, like I have on other occasions, and got only the T5, which puts me out 1,000 doubloons for a permacammo for Devonshire.

    Euro Destroyers Part 1 - PTS directive preview

    Looks like a Puerto Rico screwup if the required numbers on update get kicked into the stratosphere. The RN CA drop rate was a farce. I may pass on this.

    Price of new tier10 Ijn and pan European dds.

    Liberating ship XP to the tune of 1 million FXP conversion will cost you exactly 40,000 doubloons or 201.47$ CDN. And that is just what I don't do with my money when I already have a million FXP anyway. My wallet will be closed on this one!

    sooo why is worchester not hated as much as smolensk and colbert?

    No smoke concealment for one, and she is a big cruiser compared to the other two, so easier to counter from range. On top of that she is not as manuverable as the two smaller ships despite her speed. I had her (currently doing an RB reset of the USN CL line), and am aiming for Colbert, which was a real live ship, not a paper one. Need another 20,000 RB tokens and it is a done deal. No hurry, no worry. Play and have fun...

    Thunderer and Yoshino

    Thunderer. I am not an IJN fan where paper ships are involved. Thunderer is one but I am an RN main, so I admit being biased as hell! She hits hard and accurately at range. I have enough coal to get any coal ship currently available that I don't have, but even Smolensk turns me off. Georgia? Nah, USN paper ship. and I have Montana.

    Dont buy "special" ships

    Bad manners at any rate. I will grind any premium or special that WG will give me. Exeter is a dog and I expect London to be just as bad, but since I am an RN main I'll take the free versions. Gorizia looks good in Taranto port, but it is still a dog. WG hands them out like candy. I won't pay good money for something that is worse than its' tech tree equivalent. As for the changes, my read on this is it across the board so everyone gets the the same medicine. WG owns the game, and we suckers play it...

    Potential Damage directive for BBs is good for the game

    Given the BB playstyle in randoms, I tanked it all in co-op in an evening's play. They should put it up for randoms only and force people to close up and fight. Games would be over a whole lot quicker and the pew pew cruisers would inherit the backfield with less cover to hide behind!

    Roma issues.

    She looks good in Taranto port. I put Luigi Sansonetti in her just for laughs. Like fine wine, to be tasted infrequently becase of the high cost...

    Who have you seen in game

    No, but you kept that side fully occupied and distracted, allowing us to score on the weaker side to open it up.
