    Weekend spree

    The weekend was horrible, as it rained all weekend and the grandkids were sick and did not spend the weekend. I opened WOWS to check something and got 24 hours of free Premium time (which I am not paying for any more), so I spent a good chunk of the weekend playing about 50 games on grinding I had been putting off for the last couple of months. First, watching the MM, it looked suspiciously like CVs below Tier X were often being held in the queue until there were 4 available for a game. I didn't count, but it seemed like a fourth of the games had no CVs, a fourth of the games had 4 CVs, and the rest of the games had 2 CVs. Of the games that had CVs, maybe a half dozen had good CV players who dominated the games. While I notched personal high scores in two DDs -one in a 2-CV game and the other in a 4-CV game- periodically playing target drone driver for the pleasure of the average CV player was disgustingly distracting.
  2. Actually, TBs can apparently fly down steep cliffs and drop torpedoes a couple of feet away from the shore of islands.

    Population Decline? Data shows otherwise...

    There is no "problem" with the data; the only "problem" is that people get upset that the data does not consistently reflect their preferred narrative. People can complain -and already have- about any possible presentation of the data. If you believe you have a better approach ...

    Is WoWs approaching balance?

    Only WG could tell us if they are selling CVs at the rate they projected and are able to switch to selling BBs at the projected rate next month.

    You have access to the raw data and are more than welcome to put forth some effort yourself rather than complaining.

  7. So you think a sortie takes less than 45 seconds ...
  8. Even the CV players admit the delay suggested by WG is enough time for a sortie.

    A question about DD tactics please advise!

    If anything, write: "Go ahead; I'll support YOU"
  10. Sure; you're right and @Radar_X was wrong about switching to a second ship.

    Mid Tier DD gameplay "against" CVs

    A real DD danger you do not mention is encountering Tier VIII DDs with the Concealment System Modification, which reduces their detection range by an additional 10%. Properly spec'd, all but two Tier VIII DDs will have a lower detection range than your Farragut, and some are as short as 5.4km.
  12. You not only know this "necessary game mechanic" does not work, but actually describe how to defeat it ... It should be no surprise that players get upset with the insistence on maintaining frustrating and useless game mechanics.

    Fed up with Anti-CV hate

    Your hope should be that the >90% stick around so the game will even exist for the <10%.

    Fed up with Anti-CV hate

    I missed the part about the MM option to select American cruisers for my team.

    Fed up with Anti-CV hate

    IDK but I may not have the cat-like reflexes necessary to develop that skill.
