    Midway Unique Upgrade - where is it?

    As others have said, the UU for Midway (and Hak) are being held for "balancing." Revised UUs for the CVs and other ships, as well as new UUs for some of the more recent t-10s are due out with the next patch. See Dev-Blog link : https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/44

    what have you all done to the game?

    To the first point, can you give some more details, specifically range, what ship was shooting, and the target. Replay would be better since we can see that actual points of impact. To the second point, WG has never claimed this game to be realistic. We have numerous ships that never made it off the drawing boards. Game balance demands a certain amount of suspension of belief. This is a video game.

    DD questions...a little confuzzled....

    The "9" is general rating of the torpedoes based on WGs fanciful rating scale. By contrast the Jaguar (the French t5 DD) has a rating of 15. Both of these lines are smokeless which makes them unique in their gameplay. In general, the US line is probably the best "generalist" destroyer line. If you don't mind waiting, in about a week and a half the Public Test Server will be active again and you can try out both lines (or other DD lines) and see which one suits you.

    Research Bureau: Worth It?

    As others have said, only you can determine if it is worth it. One point, if you decide to reset a line, please do so soon. If you reset a line now you can get double points for each ship (t6 and above.) In about 2 weeks the RB season will reset, and you can get double points again for the next line that you reset. Here is a link to the research bureau in the wiki, it should answer most of your questions: https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Research_Bureau

    Shipbuilding Phase Deduction?!?

    Did you buy one of the shipbuilding levels? It may be an advisory that you spent doubloons to get the shipbuilding level

    how do you get the parseval?

    As @dad003 said, the line will be available in a couple of days. In the meantime start to stack your XP on the Weser, so that when the patch drops on Wednesday you'll have a head start (if not outright get) the Parseval.

    Well done @ArmoredFrostX. Is anyone else noticing a large portion of ranked players in co-op, doing extremely poorly?

    0.9.6 No Secondary Dispersion stat

    I found this article on the Asia forum, so I won't attest to the validity: https://forum.worldofwarships.asia/topic/24551-secondary-guns-dispersion-table/

    In general, the bot ships will spawn the same ship type directly opposite your starting position. Once the game starts the ships will plot a course toward the "weakest" ship (destroyers.) If you see all of your destroyers heading toward a single cap/direction, follow them because that is where the red ships are going to go. If your team destroyers split up plot a course to intercept the closest one. Battleships are the last ships targeted, so keep moving at full speed until you get to with medium range or until you are targeted by more than 3 ships. At medium range you can do awesome amounts of damage. At long range, the slow shells of the Colorado tend to be at the mercy of RNG too much for my taste. Hope these tips help.

    Well done. The biggest drawback with Colorado and California is that co-op games are usually pretty quick. Slow ships don't tend to do well. I've had good games in both, but usually this was a result of poor play by shipmates (which includes AI bots.) These types of games tend to be uncommon, but happen frequent enough to wipe away the mediocre results of all the dull games.

    Just had this game. Had to practically carry this one. Too many players getting sunk early, and the last two battleships were trying to snipe from near max range. The Odin spent the last 5 minutes trying to kill the red CV, and the surviving Lyon was all over the map accomplishing nothing meaningful.
