  1. EPIC lack of support for our 2 dds

    So your title is meant to be sarcasm then, right? Anyone still in the tier 8 portion of ranked play either doesn't play very often or isn't very good, so you've got to expect a lot of tomfoolery at this point.
  2. Submarine Watch - Update

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Ships_sunk_by_submarines Many, many true warships on the lists. It's true that a lot of them were sunk while attempting to transit from one location to another rather than in a pitched naval battle... but then, how many pitched naval gunnery actions as depicted in World of Warships actually took place in WWI and II? Only a handful.
  3. Was This Charge a Mistake?

    I would have either fired the first spread directly at him (pretty safe bet he's going to turn head on to you) or wait until point blank range. You had to survive for longer waiting for the second reload. But it worked out just fine, so it's hard to be too nitpicky. I dunno. If their DD beats yours, they maintain A cap and get a temporary points lead, BB is taking B, DD will head to C. Pretty soon you're stuck in the middle and they've got a 3 to 1 cap advantage. I think you have to beat one of the two remaining ships to win in that situation. As it happened, as soon as your DD beat theirs you earned the win. Didn't matter what you did, so why not go for the glory? Curious why you're asking - did someone complain to you after watching you do this?
  4. I don't have it but I've been meaning to look into it. I'm in my Minotaur. I'm going to approach close to a cap, following a destroyer. I'm gonna smoke and start dropping bulk quantities of AP shells on any targets I can find. So... is that destroyer in front of me likely to keep himself alive and maybe even spot targets for me? Or is he going to yolo, get killed, and leave me blind? I can make better plans if I can predict this better.
  5. Isoroku Yamamoto

    He's travelling up my cruiser line. I'm not much of a BB player. Only managed to activate his Kraken talent once so far but it was awesome. I was nearly dead and the heal brought me back to fighting shape. Ended up getting two more kills.
  6. Don't know what everybody's complaining about. For the record I always buy signals containers.
  7. What Ships Is IFHE Viable On?

    Correct! That's a pretty unique ship though, isn't it? I've played USN/Pan Asian DDs, and IJN DDs on whatever you call the branch of the tree that ends with Shima, and I've never seen IFHE recommended. I've played germans and russian DDs less but it doesn't look to be recommended there, either.
  8. What Ships Is IFHE Viable On?

    I've never seen IFHE called "mandatory" on a destroyer build... at least not from the nations I play and read up on. It could be useful in some situations but it's not generally worth the points cost. I have seen that it dramatically increases battleship secondary damage, if you're playing a secondaries build.
  9. Cruiser terminology to use

    If it goes "pew pew pew pew... pew pew pew pew... pew pew pew pew!" It's a CL. If it goes "BOOMBOOM! ... ... ... ... BOOMBOOM!" It's a CA. If it goes "pewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpew...." it's a Minotaur.
  10. But I've got my morning coffee. I always have a morning rage while I drink my morning coffee. Don't take this away from me!
  11. DoW3 went into my Steam wishlist as soon as it was announced. But once I learned more about the game, it stayed there. Every now and then I get an email that it's on sale, but... just not interested. You're right though. Not everything is an esport, and not every fanbase is an esport crowd. This is a game mostly enjoyed by an older-than-average crowd, who enjoys the fact that you don't need an adderall prescription to be competitive. Please don't take that away to pursue some imaginary playerbase of esport fans.
  12. They make a good point on that thread. For BBs, DDs (except gunboats), and CVs, the cooldown on your main weapon is pretty long. You're really going to be limiting the opportunities for most people to do damage if you chop too much off the game time. How many times have you had a game that, after the first ten minutes or so, feels like you haven't contributed much of anything? But you've kept yourself alive, and then in the second half of the battle you get to shine. I feel like that happens to me fairly frequently.
  13. Torpedo man achievement bugged?

    It's not clear from the description on the official website's accounts page, but the wiki says it's an Operations achievement. "Hit enemy ships with 15 ship torpedoes in a single battle, and successfully complete the operation. Can be obtained once per battle."
  14. When the flagship Minneapolis was struck by two torpedoes, New Orleans, next astern, was forced to sheer away to avoid collision, and ran into the track of a torpedo which detonated the ship's forward magazines and gasoline tanks. This explosion severed 150 ft (46 m) of her bow just forward of turret No. 2. The severed bow, including Turret No. 1, swung around the port side and punched several holes in the length of New Orleans' hull before sinking at the stern and damaging the port inboard propeller. With one quarter of her length gone, slowed to 2 kn (2.3 mph; 3.7 km/h), and on fire forward, damage control parties managed to repair the ship enough to sail to Tulagi Harbor near daybreak on 1 December. The crew camouflaged their ship from air attack, jury-rigged a bow of coconut logs, and worked clearing away wreckage. Eleven days later, New Orleans sailed stern first to avoid sinking to Cockatoo Island Dockyard in Sydney, Australia, arriving on 24 December. At Cockatoo, the damaged propeller was replaced and other repairs were made including the installation of a temporary stub bow. On 7 March 1943, she left Sydney for Puget Sound Navy Yard, sailing backward the entire voyage, where a new bow was fitted, interestingly enough with the use of Minneapolis' No. 2 Turret. Pretty amazing that the ship not only survived, but was returned to fighting form in a couple months.
  15. To answer OP's question: Yes, torpedoes can detonate battleships. No, I don't think Musashi is particularly susceptible. Torpedo detonations certainly do not happen very often, but a rare thing happening twice in a week is not statistically notable. Just a bit of bad luck on your part... equip those flags!
