    Hail and Farewell

    Just dropped by this morning to say "fair winds and following seas" to the players who have contributed to the fun I've had these past three years. No ragequit rant, no drama, only a polite farewell. It's just time to move on to other things. I stand relieved. You have the deck and the conn.

    Other Countries have veterans too!

    I seriously doubt it. The owner is Belorussian, and moved his corporate HQ to Cyprus. True, the Lesta studio that runs WOWS is in St. P'burg, but it was there before Wargaming absorbed them. Back on-topic, as a US Navy vet I am both grateful for the recognition, and certainly support spreading honorable recognition globally. I don't think there are enough IJN and DKM veterans left alive now to worry about glorifying any Axis warriors. Even then, there is a bond of mutual respect that transcends national loyalty, even among enemies, that only warriors can ever understand fully. I believe WG already has other nations in the pipeline as we speak.

    What armoury ship should I buy?

    Smolensk, hands down. Get it while you still can. It's the closest thing to a Tier 10 version of the pre-OWSF nerf Micky Kutuzov we're likely to see for a long time.
  4. In case you missed it, rewards for Rounds 1 &2 of PT 8.9 are available.

    6 CVs in a game at tier 3 is idiotic

    If there's a Katori or Yubari around, that's about as good as it gets.

    6 CVs in a game at tier 3 is idiotic

    My sentiments exactly. Since 8.0, making life miserable for carriers when present has become a big part of my game enjoyment. I'm grinding the Pan-Asian DD line with this specific goal in mind. I'm wondering how a coordinated division of Yueyangs (1 radar, 2 smoke) would turn out.

    Teamwork (again)

    I assume OP means Randoms. There are really only two alternatives: 1. Play in divisions with buddies or clannies. 2. Fuggeddaboudit. Genuine team play only exists among motivated, connected groups. Coordination among 12 random people of diverse objectives and abilities just isn't going to happen. Not in this game, not in any game.

    "Rewards for Veterans" Offer Bugged?

    Worked fine for me, and I run a locked-down Firefox browser. Sounds like it could be a M$ .NET or Visual Basic version conflict. In game center, run "check for additional softeware" and see if that helps.
  10. Got the Anshan, which was perfect. I'm about half-way through the PA DD line, so a trainer with a built-in 10-pt commander was right on time for me. Gunna go hunts me sum Cee Veez.

    Thank you for the Exeter WG

    Exeter is great. Accurate guns, and eats planes like M&Ms. Manage your RP and DCP wisely as if she were a BB, shoot and scoot like any other CA, and you'll have a ball.

    Why Do you Play Destroyers (Diddys Quest To Understand)

    You should have seen him in a 3 x Grosser Knockwurst division of his TASH buddies. Freakin hilarious. Just bullied their way through everything, including 2 Shimmies and a Yueyang. The chat comments were priceless.
