    Transformers Return to World of Warships

    Soooo.... you’ll sell the camos separately, but not the commanders? There’s a word for that... (Looking through desk, shuffling papers) I know it’s here somewhere...... Ah! Here it is: Rick-ish, except with a D.

    HMS Agincourt finally coming

    Well, after 4+ years of pestering by the British battleship fan community, it looks as though 'The Gin Palace' aka HMS Agincourt, is a Work-In-Progress due to be released at a future date. I only became aware of it today when I logged onto the WoWS Wiki to look something up. It looks as though she'll be a Tier 5 Premium, with a proposed cost of 5,000 Steel. She'll have her historically accurate (and awesome looking) main armament of fourteen 12-inch guns in seven twin turrets., with a reload time of 36 seconds, a 45 second time to rotate the turrets 180 degrees, and a 15.34 km base range, with a 213 m maximum dispersion. Her secondary armament will consist of 10 single 76 mm/50 QF Mk X guns, and 14 single 152 mm/50 Mk XIII guns, all with a base range of 5.5 km, and a reload time of 5 seconds. She'll have a maximum speed of 22 knots, a turning circle of 670 m, and a rudder shift time of 13.4 seconds. Very much looking forward to her release, can't wait to see that 14-gun broadside from a non-paper ship.

    New Port suggestion

    I was thinking more post-Explosion, in about 1941, at the height of the Royal Canadian Navy's involvement in shouldering most of the burden for our end of the North Atlantic Run. Having HMCS Sackville in the background would be nice too, one of the last corvettes still afloat.

    The tree is a 'thank you' in perpetuity for Boston's help after the Halifax Explosion. :)

    New Port suggestion

    Scapa Flow would be cool. It would be a nice touch having HMS Royal Oak riding at anchor in the background, before Gunther Prien got to her.

    Not sure about the Mont-Blanc, but what about having SS Imo with the 'Belgian Relief' banner in the background? Before the blast, obviously.

    New Port suggestion

    I wanted to suggest a new port, something for us Canadian players: Halifax Harbour. She served as the assembly point for convoys crossing the North Atlantic through two world wars, earning her nickname of 'Warden of the North'. She has also welcomed millions of immigrants to our great country over the last 250 years. My girlfriend use to live in Dartmouth, and her apartment overlooked the Bedford Basin, where we could watch an untold amount of ships coming and going (including the US aircraft carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower a couple of years ago). Many thanks for your time. Cheers, Rob

    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]
  9. 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!
