    New Temporary Battle Type

    https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/263 "Airship Escort" Oh really, WG? hmm And it still boggles my mind as to why new battle types (excluding holiday-themed) are always "temporary."
  2. Hello World of Warships & Community. I had an idea for a 7th speed option to be added alongside Full, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, Stop, & Full (reverse) and that is an escort speed. If you are in a division or just helping out an ally there is the difficulty of matching speeds whether it is to combine Anti-Aircraft fire, set Smoke Screens, concentrate firepower or just sail with a friend the faster ship has to constantly monitor its speed jumping between throttle selections to keep a steady pace with your division partner or teammate. With Escort Speed you can select that mode and the ship will match the speed of the ship closest to you that has a lower top speed than your ship, giving you a chance to take your focus off monitoring throttle and allow you to enjoy sailing with a ship in your own little taskforce. So you can arrive at a location at the same time, fight together and cover each other while there and travelling to that location. This can benefit Anti-Air defense, assisting ships not sailing ahead of the team to fast and over extending themselves, and if you're a little more historical: having a miniature taskforce. If we take example from Destroyers, Cruisers and Battleships from USA, Great Britain and Japan at tier VI, all those ships if you were to form a division and sail all under the same flag as some kind of miniature squadron, you cannot match speeds with any of the ships you're sailing with. USS New Mexico has a top speed of 18.5knots and even if the other American tier VIs (USS Farragut (36.5knots) & USS Pensacola (32.5knots))slow down to 1/2 throttle, it still is not a match for New Mexico so you have to bounce between throttle speeds, while NM just sails ahead full speed. Same goes for HMS Queen Elizabeth (22.3knots), HMS Icarus (35.5knots), & HMS Leander (32.5knots), and IJN Fuso (21.6knots), IJN Hatsuharu (36.5knots), IJN Fubuki (35.0knots) & IJN Aoba (35.0knots) or any ship at any tier. While some ships between different types can match speed (Fubuki/Aoba) or from the same type (Farragut/Hatsuharu) can match speed. A lot of ships do not match well with speeds even if they're the same type. The Escort ability could have all the ships actually go the same speed. The catch to escort speed is if the slow ship you're copying slows down or speeds up then escort will turn off and you would have to reactivate it so the game does not have to try and calculate speed change for 2 ships at once or if you and your division partner/teammate decide to split up. Escort Speed would also work and probably be quite handy in Operations. During escort mission like Raptor Rescue or Narai it is incredibly hard to keep pace with USS Raptor or the Transport ships. With Escort mode you just sail up to Raptor or a Transport ship, turn on escort speed and then sail through the mission while keeping close to the objective ships. The idea is crude and probably poorly portrayed here, but I have been wanting this concept for a long time. Thank you for hearing me out.
  3. After the CV rework is complete I am expecting to see a lot of planes in the air. Just like DD's, the CV's prime target will be BB's. (DD's are to nimble and CA have too good AA) This means in order for your high value BB's to survive they will need a cruiser to follow them close everywhere they go. And as we know a BB will not come closer that 20km to any enemy ship, which is outside the range of cruiser guns. So, that means the new role of cruisers will be to shoot down planes and protect against DD's. In this new role, what will become the most popular cruisers for say tier 7 and 10? Got to think Atlanta is on that list. or Do you think cruisers will continue to operate the way they do now and leave BB's helpless against planes and destroyers? Appreciate your thoughts.

    Is camping normal?

    Maybe I am not correct but I have thought of cruisers and destroyers as part of an escort fleet for battleships and aircraft carriers. At least that is what I know out of the game. As a battleship, do I position her at the back where most cruisers and destroyers are? Duplicate Post. Sorry..

    Where is the best place to sail when escorting a ship. WG has has become harsher about colliding w/ your allies however its still useful for cruisers to help protect BB & CVs from enemy aircraft/ DD. I seldom division w/ other ships but just pick out an allied BB or CV that's pretty much by themselves and has weak AA thus communication is very limited to non-existent.

    USS Richard S. Bull (DE-402)

    I was at the market earlier today and saw this elderly gentleman sporting a veteran's cap with the ship designator 'DE-402'. I thanked him for his service, and mentioned this project. "Let's hope they get it right", he mentioned, and I listened intently as he told a few stories about his service and the ship to which he served on. This entry is provided as a token of my appreciation for his service, and also in hopes that we will get it right.
