  1. Iowa torpedo belt

    There's some good info here: http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Gunnery_%26_Armor_Penetration Yeah, there are a few situations that can lead to non-damage penetrations. One occurs when you inflict damage to modules without destroying them. Certain modules have HP pools which can be lowered. Once it reaches zero, the module is destroyed (like gun turrets). Other situations include when a shell hits an area that is damage saturated, or when your shells explode in spaced armor (like a torpedo bulge).
  2. Bought Prince have not recieved it yet??

    Check the email account registered to your Wargaming account for an order confirmation or details regarding your purchase. Otherwise, contact support as Panbun has suggested.
  3. driving CV = reported

    I played my Saipan earlier and the Hiryu (I won't mention the name) reported me at the beginning of the game. It's fine though. I didn't report him back, I just shut him down instead.
  4. Hakuryu will be very powerful. I'd expect to see 4-2-2 loadouts. Hindenburg with DF will probably be my choice of ship.
  5. All ships can be frustrating while stock. Once you upgrade the hull, retrain your captain, and mount upgrades it should be more fun to play.
  6. Great game! Congrats to @Lert for earning a Coo of Boom Flag! I was heartbroken when I saw those torpedoes about to hit you---I thought it was over for sure. That game had me on the edge of my seat. Everything came together in the end though!
  7. You are correct that the wiki can be edited by signed in users; however, I want to include as many terms as possible right off the bat.
  8. Often times the amount of mechanics, items, consumables, and skills can be hard for a new player to remember. When the names are shortened or referred to differently (Def AA, DFAA, DF, etc) it can be even more difficult to keep up with. So, yes! Seeing a lot of great suggestions already!
  9. Hello, Captains! My name is Sharkbait_416 and I am a member of the Wiki Editor team. I am posting today to ask for your help! As part of our continuous work to provide the World of Warships community with a comprehensive Wiki, we are beginning work on a project to create a “Terminology” page. The goal of this project is to provide a dictionary of commonly used terms that may appear in-game or here on the forums. Due to the vast diversity of the player base, it would be nearly impossible to define every relevant term without your help! If you have any terminology that you’d like to see included on the page, please list it here as a comment in the following format: 1. “Term” - Definition Example: 1. “DCP” or “Damacon” - When a ship uses its Damage Control Party consumable to repair fires or flooding. Typically used to indicate that a ship is susceptible to fires or flooding because it is incapable of repairing them (due to the consumable’s cooldown period). I will do my best to ensure that every relevant term makes its way onto the page. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure if it has been posted already. I’m sure there will be some duplicates, so please don’t let this stop you from posting a comment! Additionally, if you have seen a term that you don’t know the definition for, please share it so that it can be defined! One last thing... I am very aware that “salty” language appears in game. Please refrain from suggesting terms which are offensive, degrading, or vulgar. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. I look forward to seeing your suggestions!
  10. My view on it: If it's not available to people using the vanilla client and it provides a useful function, it shouldn't be allowed.
  11. Congrats, we have everything other than the second clan expansion in [CAPT].
  12. I thought about trying ranked (At R9) but I feel like it's just too late in the season to get anywhere. GL with ranking out.
  13. Look up the movie, Sahara. Fun watch.
  14. Roma.

    Cost is pretty much average with a new Tier 8 prem BB. You can wait until black friday and pay a couple hundred dollars to get her in a bundle (which would bring her actual purchase price to ~$20-30). Like any other premium ship release, the cost will be stable for a while.
