    French Destroyers Event: the Full Guide

    So, do the folks still upset with FR since the Bush II era call them Freedom Flakes?

    Mistakes of Guadalcanal

    Neither side was initially really ready and able to respond to the demands of modern amphibious warfare. The IJ forces allowed the US marines to come ashore without first fighting for the beachhead or port. They then engaged in a mixed war of attribution broken by fierce assaults against entrenched Marines that decimated their manpower. The Navy had neither the will or resources at hand to keep the Marines properly supported or supplied, thus prolonging the total capture of the island and securing the area of the airfield. Both sides adapted and the result was seen in the logistics and carnage of the battles between the Marines and the IJ Army.

    Next Free XP Ship?

    very funny
  4. 10 NOV 1775 is US Marine Corps birthday, hope that patch is in the works.
  5. I willingly take part in the test to help make the game better. I do not do it to provide broad marketing data. How does knowing if I eat fast food, or my ranking of popular toy contribute to the game or the development team. I did not complete the survey and will not as long as such information is more important that thoughts on the game, play, and the issues I wanted to alter the team about concerning performance and the user interface.

    Waiting for new server? What the Heck.

    Guess what, the game runs on computers. They need to do updates, the programs may need interim patches, hardware may need to be modified or replaced. Thewt often requires stopping the server. They do it at the least trafficked time when possible. That's life.

    Shoot 30 planes

    The mission only is for T-5-8. I got 31 planes in T10 match and still had to go low to get it done.
  8. We used to main the gangway and the brig and for some reason the squids felt "unsettled" by our presence. Of course, I really enjoyed being with a Marine Detachment on a Navy base. Less mickey mouse and had our own little world. Better liberty too, many of the local ladies liked us better. :)

    About the CV rework

    I didn't say radar left the game, I said that play and tactics adapt. As for a ship you may consider more of a DD...here you go. Overcome and adapt. I for one would rather see innovation and a chance to try new modes than just the same old thing. WG adjusts as they see a need for tuning, that's why the Khab no longer has 10 KM fish and the Wos got radar nerfed. 8.0 and cvs are a big changes and I expect to see adjustments all around.

    About the CV rework

    Gibe it all some time, the players have to adapt and WG work on fine-tuning the new model. Same thing happened with radar. I'm seeming some games with 4 dds on a side and others with 1. Just player one in tears with only my Khab on our side as a dd and the reds had 1 Gearing. Here is what happened, 2 solo caps, 3 kills and 13 planes down as I came in 2nd for the win. Most of the game I was in knife fights with several reds. Working on posting a video of the match soon.

    Alaska will not be available: confirmed?

    I was being unusually reserved, and refrained from noting Patton was Chesty's wimp relative. Of course, Patton went to West Point and Chesty to VMI inaddition to the variation of branches. Advantage Chesty--plus Chesty was a Mustang.

    Alaska will not be available: confirmed?

    Patton was Marine General Chesty Puller's cousin. Chesty got shot at a lot more in both WWII and Korea and is best remember for two incredible battles Chosin and Tearnu River.
  13. Excellent video, solid intro. I was stationed in Pensacola in 1964 and it brings back some good memories.

    Nerfed Yueyang - quick initial WR analysis

    Seems we have this discussion every time a nerf or buffed is announced to a popular ship that is loved by its players and ranted as OP by those it sinks. Any noticeable nerf requires adjusting play style. If you can do that and still enjoy the ship, great. If not, move to another ship and wait. One day WG will once again "re-balance" the ship and/or line. I stopped playing IJN dds after that line was nerfed. Today many of those ships leave my port on a regular basis. If win rate, or damage, or kills is the only reason you play, then play another ship. If mastering the game, the challenge of unlocking ship's best playstyle, or having fun in division is the goal, maybe the same ship will still work. Let's consider some examples and the Yueyang. The Khabarovsk got nerf and now has a slower rudder and snub-nosed fish. I missed the long fish and reworked the boat to minimize the rudder issue. I still enjoy running, gunning, and burning ships down. The Isokaze was once my favorite seal-clubber. It got nerfed & my collection of High Caliber awards went down. I don't really play it anymore and have moved her 19 point skipper to another boat. Yesterday I started grinding the Yueyang and admit I noticed the effect of the nerf. I not choose my gun-fights more carefully and do more stalking than capping. I also came in first and third on the first two games with solid damage. Today I'll be grinding her for the unique upgrade and may revise my remarks.
