    KotS Camouflage Contest – Winner!

    This drove me to find a term I could not remember. The web led me to the term tessellation. The image presented is only a true tessellation if you cover up the lower portion. Other than that technicality I love it (don't tell my wife). Looking up "repeating pattern" or "tessellation" on google give some good examples, some could be used for camo... M C Escher is the master.
  2. Go to the Premium Shop and choose Ships. In the drop down to select a country, each country has a broken image beside it instead of the flag. NA public server (no premium shop in PT)

    Update 0.8.0 - Feedback and General Performance

    Took Midway out, cost 300,000 credits to go out, had not very good success injuring ships. I CV out of 4 sank a ship. I earned 80,000 credits for a loss of 220,000 credits. I cannot afford to get any better, and I don't think I will ever get back to earning as much as it takes to go out. Goodbye carriers it was fun while it lasted. It looks broken to me. No more mass attacks no more cross torpedo patterns. I cannot figure out where the fighters are going, since I was too busy flying a single squadron. I want to go back.
  5. It seems that in part 2 and part 3 we have 4 days to get 1 million base XP in random battles and again in co-op battles. If you get 1000 base XP every battle (and win every battle), you need 1000 battles to reach a million. Is there a decimal point error or am I missing something?

    Anchors Aweigh

    Latest news posting says ACHORS AWAY. The U.S. Navy would never discard the anchors to shove off. The original order I think was "Weigh the Anchors" which means pull them up from the bottom, adding the weight into the Hull weight. That got repeated as "Anchors Aweigh" which has since become the official song of the US navy. Be careful there. Not mad, I think it is a common error even in the USA. On reading a little more, the order was "weigh the anchor" and once the anchors were secure, the reply of "Anchors Aweigh" would tell the bridge officer of the deck that the anchors are secure.
  7. I saved up my tokens and bought a new captain, Dasha Perova. But alas, I have the same problem as if I met her in a bar. She would talk in Russian and I would talk in English. I wouldn't even know if she liked me. She keeps telling me things I need to know in battle but I have no idea what she is talking about. We never get past dasvidania. Is there a way to turn off her "special voice overs" or maybe you (WOWS) could let her speak English on the ship, if not in the bar. Or maybe she is not really telling me anything important... Or I could be missing something.
  8. A quote from the WOW post: However, in this historical period, "fire" could be bracketed out because the armaments carried by fighters of the opposing sides were comparable. So, only altitude, speed, and maneuvering remain. Interestingly, "speed" is mentioned in the other two parameters of Pokryshkin's formula. Altitude is the opposite side of speed. By exchanging the kinetic energy of an aircraft for potential energy, we can gain altitude as our speed increases, and vice versa. This "energy exchange" is where the lion's share of combat maneuvering—the third element of the formula— comes from. 1) A6M fighter had no decent weapon for shooting through the armor on a Wildcat, Hellcat, or Corsair armor. They had a light gun and a 20mm cannon with low ROF, velocity, and range. The Us planes carried .50 caliber guns that could rip through armor, pilot, and engine block. You've got to be kidding or fooling yourself about guns. 2) Early on is was found that the US fighters were all faster than the Japanese planes, especially in a climb, so we shot the Japanese planes down on one pass and sped away for altitude if we missed, then came back. US fighters did not get into "dogfights" with Japanese fighters. They also used the scissors maneuver to take advantage of the Zekes.. Hellcats had a 13:1 kill ratio on Zeroes. 3) USA was flying Bearcats and Mustangs from carriers by the end of the war (real airplanes). Not even the alleged A8M could keep up with that. To see 14 Corsairs go up against 15 Japanese fighters with no ships around, and the Corsairs shoot down 1 or 2 while losing all 14 Corsairs is beyond belief. On the wikipedia page for the wildcat: The Japanese ace Saburō Sakai described the Wildcat's capacity to absorb damage:
