    New World of Warships Merch Store

    Nice shirts, maybe could do a poll about what ships people would most like to see? Some ships have cult followings in the game. Just to name a few would be Shimakaze, Missouri, Yamato. I'm sure there are others. Might help sell more merch
  3. It’s which ever you prefer and want really. This is your leisure time, your here to have fun. Most people have more fun when they are winning. Choose one that best suits you. I will tell you this. The current Rank mode I watched John_The_Ruthless mow through people in his Friesland and Groningen. Not that I could come close to JTR’s abilities but it made me think about the Groningen and the abilities of a pure gun boat DD in Rank mode. The Friesland is no longer available but for 1 million FXP in the Dutch line you can get the Groningen. So he inadvertently sold WoW’s a premium DD to me. He should get a commission 😉

    Is WoW truly consumer driven?

    World of Warships is a business just like the other games WG owns. They do charitable work but the employees need to be paid. The same as any other business. The accounting reports to the management and decisions are base economically bottom line. Does that mean they are perfect? No but, no business is perfect. In the current economic downturn globally, WG/World of Warships will face headwinds just like anyone else. I for one hope they stay in business.

    New spokes person?

    Is Natali Kozyreva the new spokes person for World of Warships? Did Dasha Perova retire?

    Subs have WAAAAY too much health

    Out of curiosity are you not a fan of subs in game as well as the mechanics. Or just not a fan of the mechanics?

    Jean Barts and Kearsarge in Ranked

    Thank you I stand corrected. I was getting my information from the World of Warships Wiki from my phone. I went to the training room and here was the results I came up with. Iowa was listed as 28.78 knots base. Iowa in training room stripped of flags base speed was 32.9. I may have cut it off before reaching top speed. North Carolina is listed as 24.42 knots base. North Carolina in training room stripped of flags was 27.5 knots. Montana is listed as 30 knots base. Montana in the training room stripped of flags is 30 knots stripped of flags. Ohio is listed as 28 knots base. Ohio in training room stripped of flags is 28.1 knots. Kearsarge is listed as 30 knots base. In the traning room stripped of flags she is 30 knots. I'm sure there must have been adjustments made since the Iowa, North Carolina, and Ohio was listed they have been in the game awhile. I don't have the Alabama or Massachusettes so I can't test them.

    Jean Barts and Kearsarge in Ranked

    Just my opinion. Both bring a lot of potential to ranked. Jean Bart has the two fun buttons of speed boost and MBR. She can burn things and has the option of citadel with AP. She can disengage with speed. Kearsarge if played like a semi squishy BB with the luxury of occasional rocket attack planes “can” bring a lot of potential. Often overlooked tools the Kearsarge brings is 12 X 16” North Carolina guns. She can spot and do a lot of penetration damage with potential of fires with more Tiny Tim armed Bearcats in a strike than a single Midway strike. Five planes with Kearsarge vs three planes of Midway. Another thing that is overlooked is speed. She is tied with the Montana with max speed of 30 knots. Only USN BB faster is the Georgia.

    general vs specialized

    While playing rank mode today I got to thinking of one of my most favorite ships the Fletcher. It is a very capable utility DD that really shows her strength in teamwork situations. For me personally I prefer it in random (general) mode opposed to rank (specialized) mode where I prefer it’s sister ship the Black. The radar being the difference because the greater emphasis on cap contesting with smaller teams. What are some of your preferred general vs specialized ships?
