    Graf Zeppelin AP Sirens?

    I have noticed that also. The sound is still there, but it doesn't start until right before I release the bombs. Used to start when I first started the dive, then got louder. Not so. Main reason for me to buy the GZ was the dive bomber wail. If they remove it, I will demand a refund. I have the Weser and the Reine and they don't have the wail. So I am guessing the Perceval and Red Baron CV's will not have it. Interesting, my profile photo is gone. I even tried to reload it, but it still shows up blank. Oh well, not the end of the world.

    Your very first Premium was?

    Ishizuchi was my first premium. Had just started playing WoWs back then and wanted a cheap premium to play. Still have it, but hardly ever play it anymore.
  3. Hard to say one way or the other. Doesn't seem to make a difference whether I play Co-op or random, I always get bots. One human CV player on enemy team filled with bots. Me, the only human on my team. Enemy Des Moines shot down 28 of my planes, and sank 4 ships. I can't tell what ship I am attacking though as my main computer (with the good graphics card) is down, so playing it with a 6 year old HP. :( Co-op, it is me against the world, no humans. So far today I have won in every CV except Midway. can't get a win with that ship to save my life. Played Wyoming but there was no enemy CV so unable to tell how good/bad AA is from a non CV standpoint. But as a CV player, the AA is ferocious at tier 10.
  4. The OP asked for tactics, and all I see is haters. I know one thing from playing the Midway on the PT today, the AA is ferocious. I couldn't even get close to any enemy ships without losing all my planes. And the unlimited planes although technically true, the wait time after your squadron is wiped out negates that. It looks like the CV will need help from team mates since they can't one shot a ship anymore. The entire match, I was only able to get one torp to hit, after making 3 runs. The ships turn too quick for the slow torps to hit it.

    Unsporting conduct for killing own planes?

    This game never has been, nor will it ever be a real life game. Yes, IRL you would be court martialed, but in real life, your sunk ship would not automatically appear in your port when the battle was over either, and you would not have s Space commanders, cat commanders, teenage Asian girl commanders, Russian model commanders, paper ships, radar only on a select few ships, and then only for less than a minute. Nobody wants 100% realism, that is why it is an arcade style game. It is one thing to shoot a teammate, but to shoot yourself? I was in my Saipan a few months back, and ended up torping myself. I went pink for two battles. I agree though, that in the grand scheme of the battle, if you take yourself out, you are essentially hindering your own team. So it does make sense to get a pink penalty.
  6. Yueyang is my favorite DD. Love the DWT's. hate the long reload. Got the legendary for it, never mounted it. Total waste of grind time. Biggest complaint I have with it (besides not being able to torp other DD's of course) is the long torp reload time. Now, they want to make it longer? Really? I don't use guns that much so the extra second to reload is no big deal to me. However, the torp reload is already painful, now it will be unbearable...

    Clan Battles: No 500 Steel for you!

    Wow WG, now I have seen everything. You make the rules, you announce the rewards, then you screw up (technical difficulties? really?) and then pull the rewards for those on the NA server who were not allowed to play any other server due to "technical difficulties" Nice going. and reducing the requirements to only 5 games on a different server? What a joke. Since those are the servers you would not let us play on due to your "technical difficulties. If you are wondering why you are losing players, you might look at this joke you played on the community....

    Clan battles Nov 10th

    Marketing ploy. Pure and simple. They announce rewards, they can't deliver. Then they string us along to keep our interest. However, after three (Four? lost count) failed attempts at this, you would think they would call it a day, and give everyone a consolation prize.

    Dasha Perova

    My Japanese Dasha on a Japanese ship (naturally) speaks Russian. Sure hope the crew has brushed up on their Russian. LOL
  10. I feel your pain. At the moment, I have opened 19 Royal Navy containers, five of which I bought from the premium shop, and not a single ship mission...

    Midway captain skills

    Thank you for your input. I hadn't noticed the hanger nerf until after I got her, and was like wth! And even in Co-Op, you can run out of planes if the battle goes long enough. Already happened once. Which is when I noticed the smaller hanger size. with all the nerfs on the Midway, I am surprised anyone wins a battle with her. Of course I have seen Unicum Midway videos on YouTube where they literally own the battle, so it is still possible. I don't have that skill level and probably never will especially considering the upcoming CV nerf, I mean rework.
  12. Hello fellow captains. I just recently acquired the USS Midway, and put a 19pt captain from my Gearing in her, (Yes, I redistributed the captain's points). However, I was just wonder what a typical Midway captain would have? Mine is currently set up with: 1) Aircraft Servicing Expert, and Dog fighting Expert. 2) Torpedo Acceleration 3) Torpedo Armament Expertise 4) Air Supremacy, Advanced Fire Training and Concealment. I know the AFT is primarily for BB's and CA/CL's who want to setup AA, but it was either that, or get Superintendent, and Priority target. None of the three really make much sense in a carrier IMHO, except the AFT does bring her AA capabilities to 97. I did think about going with Superintendent as it would give me a second Defensive Fire consumable, but how often would I need that? I have played both IJN and US CV's up to Midway and Taiho respectively, however, with the exception of the lower/mid tier CV's all of it has been in Co-Op battles. I did grind up to Essex before free XP'ing to the Midway, and I ground up to the Taiho and am going to free XP to the Hakuryu if I decide to get it. I doubt it though as I learned from the 7 squadrons of the Taiho, that I have reached my limit in ability to control them, so buying a ship with 8 would mean it will sit in the port doing nothing. Like a collector though, just having both tier 10 CV's would be enjoyment enough. However, my goal ever since I started this game (August 2017) was to eventually get the Midway as my dad was on it way back in the early 50's when it still had the single flight deck. I am not a good CV player by any stretch of the imagination, (which is why I stopped playing them in randoms after T7) but I would not consider myself a potato. Mediocre maybe? In any case, I want to improve my Midway game play as our clan seems to have a serious shortage of high tier CV pilots (three total I am told, and one of them doesn't play WoWs anymore, preferring Over watch). I know that means jumping back into randoms again with my CV's (I also have Kaga, Saipan, and Enterprise to practice with) but would like to get a captain skilled properly so the only hindrance would be my inability/ability to play her better.

    Graf Zeppelin release any idea?

    Doubt it will be released now until the CV makeover. So maybe summer 2019? If they offer to buy back all premium CV's when the rework comes out, I will sell all mine (Saipan, Enterprise, Kaga) and only play my remaining Midway. However, based on the early look of the rework, I doubt I will ever play CV's again. Just my 2 cents.

    American Cruiser Collection

    Thanks. Will have to check it out.
  15. Hello fellow Captains. I have a question regarding duplicates in the American Cruiser Collection. In previous collections they let you exchange them for items you don't have, however, I see no option to do that with this collection. is it not possible, or am I missing something somewhere?
