    I never said it wasn't justifiable; just that it was, in the most technical way, homicide.

    after careful consideration......

    Co-op players and Randoms players in low-tier games with bots have been harassed with random, inappropriate torpedo discharges by green bots for some time now. This is beyond the control of the human players, and sometimes occurs at ranges at which avoidance is impossible. In battles where the humans are small in number, this can turn a hard-fought carry into an automatic loss. In addition, I have been witness to a Random battle in which a BB player fragged his own carrier because he didn't like how the CV player was conducting themselves. The shot was heavy enough (IIRC a Kremlin broadside into a Saipan) that there was no time for the reflected damage system to mitigate it. Now this kind of tomfoolery has become impossible.

    I heard that everyone in Oz was pretty happy to see BOTH of Dorothy's kills done in, including her former henchmen. So... are you the Wicked Witch of the North, or the South?

    My Job prevents half of game modes.

    You guys are (not unreasonably) expected to join the SEA server in the first instance, for geographic reasons. If you join NA, you take all that comes with it.

    PT Rewards Change Coming

    Let's see what happens in 10.7; the Community Tokens are new, and this might just be a way of increasing their prominence as a one-off. I agree that it would not be a good thing if all the flags and camos were to disappear. Re-establishing them for the first three co-op or random battles and then giving out CT's for everything else might be a good compromise. If that's not the way it goes and it's CT's or nothing... well, I'll just accumulate CT's and get premium ships with them. Permacamo included means no temporary camo issues. Do note, however, that the missions for combat flags which have recently been brought in on the live server do give out a certain number of the Draconic flags, so it might just represent a change in the way the various flags are being awarded. Shift, adapt, evolve... or die.

    Judy Garland only played the character. You can't hate her for that.

    What Port Do You Use? Why?

    Azur Lane dorm - because when my wife and kids go by, they like seeing the fat little mice waddling about the place. My wife even wants it as a screen-saver. When, WG?

    Someone once summarized The Wizard of Oz as "A young woman whose first act in a new country is homicide sets out with three strangers on a journey to kill again."

    Kansas is a bizarre case. The shells seem to get out there fairly quickly, but once they get there they take forever to come down. This seemingly endless drop time is where I've had most of my missed shots.

    I thought this was going to be something about the Tiger 59's gun arcs. There are days I wish I'd got the Colbert instead of the Vampire 2, if only so that I could have rained down those tall arcs on people while singing "Rainbow Connection" at the top of my lungs on-stream.

    Rubbish. I just went to Youtube, typed "WOWS Tone", and here are the first few hits I got. Doesn't look like much of an embargo to me. Little White Mouse has a huge backlog and is sometimes not in the best of health. I wouldn't consider it unusual that I haven't seen a review from her yet.

    i like to report this bot

    I think what some of the others are getting at is that WG not only has to do the right thing; it has to be seen to be doing the right thing. For example, when I report a spambot in Twitch chat, I get an e-mail back from Twitch confirming that the activity was reviewed and action was taken. We can all agree that some players are so terrible it's difficult to tell them from a bot, but when I see a ship which is identified as being driven by a human player which... a) moves actively around the map, preferring the map border, but not in response to the events of the battle, b) engages with secondaries or AA fire only, never discharging torpedoes or firing main guns c) does not respond in chat d) takes no evasive action ...then I am obliged to conclude that that ship must either be a scriptbot or have been set for autopilot by a player obliged by real-life events to go AFK. (I've done that second one myself, but I usually try to tell the team in chat that I have to go.) If it stops then starts again but its armament continues to behave in the aforementioned passive manner, it cannot be an AFK on autopilot.
  13. Alternative choices include Teddy Sheehan, who went down with his ship firing a 20mm Oerlikon to try to distract the attacking Japanese aircraft from strafing his fellow sailors in the water. Now that we already have a historical commander who was never more than an ordinary able seaman in real life (Leroy Jenkins), I think the foot could be in the door for Sheehan to get the nod... if, of course, his estate is disposed to being cooperative.
  14. I pray to God you're being sarcastic, because if you're not, you deserve to be tied in a sack and beaten to death with a Yudachi for your insolence.

    Ever eat your own words?

    @Lord_Zath has an unfortunate but hilarious habit, when he does gameplay analysis reviews, of being halfway through telling people they mis-aimed when the shells land for a devstrike. These days, the only trash-talk I give my opponents is to the red bots.
