    Why are bots torping friendlies in Coop?

    Bots also do not take into account the range of their torps or distances to red bot targets. I've had green bots torp me at point blank within the first minute of the match. The only plausible red bots on any plausible line of bearing are two caps over.
  2. As of July 2020, there are 227 tech tree ships in the game. I have 225 and have not yet finished grinding the Tier 9 and 10 Soviet cruisers. It is possible to have three future tech tree ships in port if you have purchased enough German CV event containers but technically, Rhein, Weser and Parseval are still early release/premiums.Those will be tech tree ships 228-230. The Tier 10 CV Richtofen will be tech tree ship #231 but not even wallet warriors can have that yet.

    Maybe just maybe...if you get chatbanned with any regularity YOU are the [edited](1) and should just change. PS, this isn't addressed to OP. Rather it is for all the folks who complain in forum about how unfair it is that they got chatbanned--again. (1) The censored word is a synonym for rectal crater.

    Rock, Paper, Scissors and bias

    The obvious flaw in your estimate is parochialism. Barnum asserted a fool born every minute but didn't limit the fools to the United States. The US may average .62 births per minute but the worldwide average is something like 243/minute. If you think that only one of the 243 people born per minute is a fool, then you are one of Barnum's fools. Oh, and Barnum was a starry eyed optimist.
  5. Complaints about bias dominate this forum, the WoWs subreddit and CC vids on Youtube. Some of the bias complaints are more valid than others but all seem beside the point. World of Warships is an arcade shooter on the surface but at base, it is a complicated version of Rock, Paper, Scissors. If the point of the game is to win, then as long as everyone has equal access to the various Rocks, Papers and Scissors, it does not matter which is overpowered. If Rock is overpowered, play Rock and avoid Scissors. Choose your weapon based on the current meta and adjust fire as and when the meta shifts.

    PR event flushed out botters.

    Haze, I was the one who led the lynch mob to get the 'Missouri botter' purged. I won't use his name in this thread lest it get locked or deleted but back then, I was sailing under the username ReamNaval so might remember me under that name though few of the threads survived WG's deletions. It took a fair number of name and shame posts and replays and complaint tickets to get WG to finally purge him, but to our Wargaming overlord's credit, they did finally act. He's gone, as are several other botters I used to see frequently. Wargaming NA seems to be less tolerant of botters in coop now than it was a year ago. It's not an extremely high bar to pass, but they are passing it.

    Is anyone else happy?

    Happy...hmmm. Well, it's a [edited] life but at least it will be over soon enough....

    Need help from some of you Military man ?

    Looks like the first international agreement' on this seems to be the 1897 Brussels Comite Maritime International conference. The rules wouldn't have been mandatory but likely widely used because navies don't have an interest in accidentally ramming their ships into other ships. The current rules are the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea and were adopted as a convention of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 1972. A convention is a treaty signed by many countries and the IMO is a specialized United Nations organization for regulating shipping. Virtually every country on the planet is a member of the IMO except those which are landlocked.
  9. Will soon have enough Shipbuilding tokens to get another booster but I already completed PR after Directive IV. Just hold the tokens for credits or is there any reason to go ahead and get another booster? Thx

    WG still giving FREE 3 port slots

    I don't write the dictionary, I just (mostly) comply with it.

    WG still giving FREE 3 port slots

    This guy is trolling. And if he isn't trolling and really has no idea what was just said, he's too dense to be educable.

    Snowflakes all dusted, bit of a slog

    Nicely done. I'll keep a screencap of Snowflakes 2019 so I can compare it next year. Comparing to last year would have been painfully easy--no Super Containers, no steel and precious little coal.

    Coal Addition

    Clan coal bonus is 7%. I checked the notification and it was 14,959 coal added. 14,959 is 7% of 213,700. Does that mean I got 213,700 coal in Santa crates?
