  1. I posted the article mainly because it had quotes from an official Wargaming employee and a graphic produced and released by Wargaming which I thought might be of interest to some folks and possibly stimulate some conversation regarding gaming and World of Warships in particular.
  2. Uh, the IOC officially recognized disc golf 5 years ago. https://www.pdga.com/international-olympic-committee-grants-full-recognition-disc-sports

    Yamato space skin

    I believe the Modstation has sci-fi/space skins for all IJN BB tier 5-10. I know Kongo does, as I have it installed.
  4. I agree with you that a survey of 2,000 Americans is not "most Americans". I did think the article made some valid points, however. I also thought that it was interesting that World of Warships is "mainstream" enough to have made the news. Especially when other MMOs are so much more popular and prevalent in the news these days.
  5. I see the value in looking at esports in the way that this article approaches it as being that esports may provide a way for people with physical disabilities to compete in a skilled competition of some kind when they would not be able to participate in a contact sport. One good takeaway from the article is that gaming has become more widely accepted than in years past and that it helps develop skills such as strategy, problem solving, hand/eye co-ordination, etc.
  6. Thought I would post this for my first thread on the forum. This is an article I came across that has quotes from the World of Warships regional publishing director as well as an interesting and eye-catching graphic put together by WoWs. I thought it was interesting that WoWs was featured in a a major news outlet and just wanted to share. Enjoy. https://nypost.com/2020/07/01/large-number-of-americans-think-esports-will-one-day-surpass-sports-in-society/
  7. Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and... Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten? Nigel Tufnel: Exactly. Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder? Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where? Marty DiBergi: I don't know. Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do? Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven. Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder. Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder? Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.

    Why is there no Solomon Islands map in Co-op?

    The wiki says it's for Tiers 2-5. As a personal observation, I don't think I have ever played it in co-op with any tier 5 ship, however. https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Maps#Solomon_Islands
  9. Another question, who is the face carved into the rocks at the center of the Ring map?

    WG logic.

    In other words, throttle down at max queue?

    Dockyard 2.0 Progress Thread (PVE Thread)

    Was in a match with you a short while ago. You were sailing Omaha, hitting the bot CV with AP (for cits, I presume). You came in first on the scoreboard, I was second. Good game.
  13. HamAndCheez

    Welp, I understand why people play CV, now.

    I agree with you. I'm not going to get into the CV debate, because I don't really have an opinion as to how they work or don't work in the game. However, I tried the Langley and I found it to be uninteresting. Flying the planes was not a good flight sim experience, and there are no deck management (rearming, repair, launching/arresting) or CV command features which could be an interesting game in its own respect, so I sold that ship, retrained the captain and never looked back.

    There is another great point of interest to visit near the USS Texas, not just NASA: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seawolf_Park
