    You know after trail and error with Rockets

    This is not history. If we were going for history, then yes. But we aren't. Consumables like MBRB and Engine Boost, along with ships like the Kremlin come to mind (to fight effectively on the high seas, it would have to be roughly 2.8 times the length of the Yamato, given its displayed freeboard).

    What's wrong with the update?

    Okay, thank you all. I will look into the C++ and DL features.
  3. For some reason, my PC will not install the update. 4 hours a day, every day, starting the day it was released. However, the update still isn't installed (less than 2/3 of the way), and today it stopped altogether, forcing me to completely re-start the process. This happens every time I have a WoWs update, and leads to my being offline for 2-8 days. Is this my system being [edited], or are other people experiencing the same problem? I tend to suspect the former, but if I can get any advice on the solution, that would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Also, the Immelmann in particular has an extremely fast restoration time. Some CVs, losing a single plane hurts a lot, and some, losing 5 doesn't matter at all.
  5. I did mention it. I said that I had not done the credit math, but that by my reckoning (which may be faulty), the FXP cost to do the RN DD line was around 1.5 or 1.6 million.
  6. Did some math on the British destroyer tech tree as an example. Didn't check the credit value, but the FXP value seemed to be closer to 1.5-1.6 million.
  7. I forget the guy's name, but somebody posted one similar a while back, in a different thread. It was called the Incompatible.
  8. And Russian radar, Fiji turning circle, Daring acceleration, FDR's planes, Mutsuki's stealth, MVR's plane speed, Thunderer HE, etc.

    My issue with CVs is many things. Not that I am anti-CV; I actually think they bring something valuable to the game. I do think they are balanced poorly, and that there should be some way for surface ships to opt out of CV/SS game. My main issue, however, is lack of counterplay. A): Surface ships can do nothing against a CV except dodge or stay close together. This is infuriating for them. B): If RNG puts flak in the planes faces, they lose 1-5 planes, and the others are seriously damaged, frequently forcing to CV to recall the whole squadron without attacking, or suffer the loss of the vast majority of the squadron (which takes about 2-5 minutes to replace). Not counting RNG, if players simply stay within about 4km of each other, then form a death ball, against which the CV can do nothing. It almost seems as if the system was designed to infuriate both sides, cause dissent between them, and allow WG to profit off of that.

    Account Problem

    My forum account is different from my ingame account. When I try to log in to my WG account in the game client, it says that the login is invalid. When I try to go to the website to create an account (I assumed the previous problem was because my WG account was not registered), I was told that the account already existed. Any help?

    You're favorite looking boat?

    I do love the way the Atlantas look (and their variant, the Oaklands).

    Austin vs. Stalingrad

    I am looking for a steel ship that will be effective in ranked/competitive, but is different or better than its same-tier tech tree version. I am currently looking at Austin and Stalingrad, but I am willing to take any other suggestions. Any help?

    Grozovoi vs. Neustrashimy

    Really? I don't like the Pommern because the main battery is worthless, but if I am wrong, I am willing to take another look at it.

    Grozovoi vs. Neustrashimy

    I am looking for a T9 coal ship for farming credits/FXP. I will not get the Pommern (slow reload, bad accuracy, bad penetration, poor damage/shell), the Z44 (German torpedoes tend to be worthless), or the Marco Polo (I hate Italian BBs). I am looking at the Neustrashimy, but it seems to be an obscenely expensive Grozovi that trades 2 guns for a better heal. Is it worth the coal, or is the Grozovoi better?

    Are USN BBs worth the effort?

    Thank you. This is the kind of information I typically can't find. I frequently get answer like "if you can use them properly, they are a beast", or some other obvious but useless answer that applies to 99% of the ships in the game. I am looking for an opinion from as many people as I can get one from on this key question: are the strengths balanced against the weaknesses, are the strengths more relevant, or do the weaknesses make the ship/line not worth playing.
