    French Cruisers in Early Access

    I like the French Battleships. I'll give these cruisers a try and see if they will be of use in my arsenal.

    Armada: Cheshire

    She's a great ship. This is the one I received as a Christmas gift from Wow. Wonderful gift...thank you again World of Warships.

    Submarine suggestions

    Very good points. Complaints don't solve problems....suggestions do and I think your suggestion relating to ship launched depth charges is an excellent one. I hope your suggestion or something similar in nature is considered because currently a ship that launches depth charges from it's deck is shooting blindly. It is hard to tell where the charges are going to go.

    Waterline: Roadmap Update – Spring 2022

    Great info news!! The folks at Wow are keeping things fresh. I like the map development and graphics. I am particularly excited about the focus on helping new comers to the game get some preliminary help in the form of simple missions and helpful hints to develop their skill at this game. I think even experienced players may learn something through this! I look forward to checking this out. I think Lieutenant Kyesac above has covered everything quite nicely and I agree with his post. I look forward to this new season....I can tell this will be a fun spring and summer.

    This contest seems to be working fine.

    Walk the Port: London

    I think once again the people responsible for this and other videos like this should be complimented for their unique skill and the informative nature of these videos. However, I do agree with JediMaster that I think a great opportunity for WOW is being missed. I suggest in incorporating the ports within the game in another way. Start each battle by moving out of the port you are anchored at to the open sea before arriving at the area of battle. I think it would add some authenticity to the game and a feeling of putting out to sea.

    Graphics Improvements in Update 0.11.3

    The video was awesome. I'm an old timer remembering the days of board games and the game of Pong at the very beginning of digital games. Gaming and computer effects have come a long way and I'm glad i'm still around to enjoy all of this genius being exercised in the gaming industry. I think it is incredible what these people are able to do to make this game as realistic as it is. I play a couple of RPG games besides this one however World of Warships and its historic content is by far the most stimulating and enjoyable in my opinion. I'm sure if there is a way to get the scent of the salt sea air through your computer WOW will find it.
  8. I've played all three tiers. I guess the higher the tier the more credits i'm in the red for. In other words, I end up with a negative number of credits after the battle is over. I don't gain anything....I lose credits. I suppose subs have a higher maintenance cost and so you have to do better in battle to see a positive credit gain.

    Win by Watching: Doolittle Raid Stream

    Sounds great. I usually don't win big events like this; however, it doesn't hurt to try!! Count me in.

    [Results] Easter Egg Hunt

    If this thing isn't working maybe it's time to put in a ticket.
  11. I have seen and have been in battles where sub captains use the sub very affectively. They manage to hide well and make hits with their torps and do damage. I myself just can't seem to get the hang of it. I get disoriented at the worst possible moment and get myself in a jam quickly. And another problem I find (probably as a result of my poor subs Manship) I have yet to be in the black on credits when I captain a sub. I lose credits and that has slowed my desire to play that type of ship. I also have not invested in upgrades on these rentals. The day that I own one is the day I begin upgrading the ship and it's captain but for now I think I will pass on captaining a sub.

    Discounts and Doubloon Returns on Purchases

    For those that have been contemplating an addition to their fleet of ships some of the deals may be a good opportunity. Although this is a game it is also a business. The people who work for Wow do not work for nothing and like any successful business there must be cash flow (revenue). I do not begrudge this company from making money. I will choose how I spend my money and if I see a deal that is worth it to me I will make a purchase. For now I am a premium player with a modest income so I have to be frugal with my spending. However, I support the game as much as I can and pay to maintain my premium account. I spend doubloons as I can and items I feel will make the game more enjoyable to me. This game is put together such that people can play no matter what their financial status may be and that is a good thing.
  13. I think the idea is that they want to cruise around and shoot at objects on the water surface. They don't like things coming at them from above or below. That's very uncomfortable...it interrupts their focus on other surface ships. Conversely it is perfectly alright that Sub Captains and CV captains have to jump through all kinds of hoops to navigate as well as engage in battle. You would think that would be a consideration when WOW is developing a battle platform. So far I have found that Subs are the most difficult ships to manuever to engage the enemy, evade the enemy and to maintain any stealth what so ever. And changes have made it worse.
  14. I agree!! First, I think eliminating the mid underwater level was a mistake. Maximum dive uses up the battery and in this game it is a defensive move for a sub. So the battery shouldn't be counting down when at maximum depth. You can't shoot at surface ships from down their. And now you aren't totally protected down their either. Now we have torps with less range, less damage, less velocity. In fact subs are getting less attractive, and quite frankly no advantage at all. I wish all sub commanders good luck because at this rate of change to subs along with the buffs going to surface ships they are going to need it.
  15. How much nerfing does it take???? And it still doesn't seem to be enough for surface ship captains. It won't be enough until subs can only go 10 knots and thier torps go 5 knots. And they can't go any lower than periscope depth....lol.
