    Kiwi1960 heading to the breakers yard.

    Henk @kiwi1960 @MCBURL posted in the clan about your diagnosis. I'm so very sorry, my friend. That seems like such an inadequate thing to say. And happy belated birthday. Not sure if I've ever asked you this before, but do you have a favourite ship in the game? In the years to come, I'd like to think of you, standing on the bridge of your favourite boat, moored in the grand World of Warships harbour, raising a mug of your favourite brew, as we all sortie for battle (me in my favourite boat, the République), all of us returning your salute. Then at the end of the day, after the battles are done, meet you at the harbour pub, where we all could try and out boast each other, and remember the good times. Fare thee well, my friend. We have an old saying in Atlantic Canada: Long may your big jib draw. With love and respect, Rob [HMCS_Moncton]
  2. Hey, @LittleWhiteMouse, I was just going over one of your older reviews, on the IJN Atago, and all of the pictures of the ship are gone, replaced with "This image is no longer available. Visit tinypic.com for more information."

    What's up with that?

      @HMCS_Moncton Back in the day when I first started posting, the forums severely limited which sites it would allow for linking graphics.  There was a handful on the permitted list -- the easiest of which to use was tinypic.com.  So I used that to host all of my jpegs.  Sadly, tinypic is now defunct and all of those links are now broken.

      That alone would be just a nuisance.  After all, I could just spend a few hours re-uploading everything to imgur or ShipComrade or any number of sites that the forums now allows to direct-link.  However, I don't have access to all of those jpegs anymore.  A hard drive crash killed a lot of the older stuff I put together.  So that means going back into the client and taking literally hundreds of new screenshots to replace the old ones which is easily five times as more involved than simply re-uploading.

      So, in short -- it's a matter of time.  I need more of it.

      Damn, how many of those reviews were affected? Because if I remember correctly some of them got a 2nd or even 3rd review (Warspite being your favourite boat xD).

    4. LittleWhiteMouse


      For a long, long time.  Easily upwards of 50 to 60 reviews need to be fixed.  The real challenge is that some of these links were graphs and the data simply doesn't exist anymore as rates of fire or shell damage or AA changes have made finding those numbers now exceedingly difficult.

    Your best Co-op Game(s) / Stats

    Just had this game this morning. Liking Georgia, although not quite the same brawler as my Alsace or Jean Bart.

    Finally get with the times...

    Internet must be really sketchy in that part of the world. Somebody ought to give Google Translate a shove too, seems to be skipping

    Where are all the humans today?

    Okay, I see it, thanks. Bloody bizarre. XD

    Players Asking for Kills

    Sure, I don't mind helping, I'll usually turn my secondaries off & let whomever is asking have the kill. I usually have a couple of kills under my belt by that point anyway.

    Where are all the humans today?

    One thing I don't like about the new interface, is that it no longer shows how many people are online. I always used that as an indication of what tier I would play. The less people online, the lower the tier, so you don't end up as the only hooman on your team.

    My first 19 point captain!

    Congrats, a very big milestone getting your first 19 point captain. My first one was a French admiral, who captains my T10 République (and also does duty in my Jean-Bart & Dunkerque). My US admiral normally captains my North Carolina, but also rotates through my Texas, Arizona, and Alabama. My German admiral can usually be found in my GK, but also spends time in the Scharnhorst and Tirpitz. Have fun!

    CO-OP players tried Space battles?

    I gave it a whirl on the Test Server when it first showed up there. I took out the Paris. I did okay, sank a couple of ships, and lived until the end of the battle, which we won. Would love to have the Space camo for my République, but not for 8,000 doubloons, thank you very much.

    Does Mikasa still farm flags?

    According to @LittleWhiteMouse's premium review of Mikasa in 2016: "While other premiums print currency or provide bonus XP for training your captain, the Mikasa facilitates the restocking of signal flags."
  11. I might have been out of the loop for a little while, but does anyone know if the T2 Mikasa still farms flags? I bought her back a few weeks ago, but haven't noticed any difference in my flag stores.

    Fire At Will Friday - The Battlewagons

    I managed to get the Unique Upgrade for my République, which dropped the main battery reload down to a very quick 19.7 seconds. Granted, she only has one fore & one aft turret, but the 17-inch rifles pack a mighty wallop. I can get out almost 3 broadsides to another ship's two, so that works for me.

    My feedback on the Exeter marathon

    Big agree here. Hard to progress when you play strictly Co-Op....and there aren't 30-40 planes to shoot down. The same limitation brought my Fly-Strike-Win progress towards HMS Furious to a grinding halt.

    Top 5 favorite ships for anything

    Favourite ships (at least before the CV rework which completely messed up the AA). I find these the most fun to play: 1. République 2. Neptune 3. Mikhail Kutuzov 4. Friant 5. Dresden (with an Azur Lane captain, hilarious to listen to) Honourable mentions: Jean-Bart, Tirpitz, Yamato, Akizuki, Kitakaze

    Jean Bart $80 Really

    I got mine using coal & steel back during the event, but it was a lot of grinding. Jean-Bart is worth it, though, great ship. Up to you whether it's worth $79. On the other hand, $99 CDN for the Alaska? Not bloody likely. XD
