  1. Hello! I always thought this was an interesting question. Aircraft carriers were frankly the game-changer for the big battleship-on-battleship engagements that dominated naval doctrine for years. They can send ordinance from the sky to eliminate heavily-armored warships without too many casualties to the attacker. While aircraft carriers were somewhat used in World War I by the British (HMS Ark Royal and HMS Furious), they didn't really hit their stride until World War II with Taranto, the destruction of HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Repulse, Pearl Harbor, Coral Sea, Midway and more. XX My question is this: If aircraft carriers were more heavily explored in WW1 (i.e. They were used more in engagements and had their equivalent testing battles...like a bombing of the German High Seas Fleet with British carrier planes. This is just a random example of perhaps a demonstration of good carrier aviation that could happen in a what-if WW1), how would've that affected WW2 naval battles? Under this, there are a few more questions: -How would've technology advanced with the rise of carriers from the prior war (i.e. rise in missile technology to destroy carriers? Better planes to avoid carrier AA fire?) -What mistakes do you think naval commanders would make with carriers in the beginning stages of the conflict? -How would that affect building strategy and the naval treaties during the interwar period? -Would some warships have been prioritized over others (i.e. more carriers vs the Yamato-class battleships for the Japanese? Graf Zeppelin-like carriers over Bismarcks?) XX Feel free to get creative with your answers and expand upon your own lines of observation. Thanks!

    World War One Operation/Scenario needed

    ALL the Operations so far have been WWII based, I think a WWI scenario free of radar and aircraft would be fun .There's countless naval encounters, my choice for an Op would be based on the the German raids on the English coastal cities,that could translate well in game, similar to Killer Whale. Most lower tier ships sit in port as we grind away toward the higher tiers, it seems a waste , also a low tier Op would be fun for those grinding through the lower tiers.More importantly Some Great War focus is needed in game .
  3. STOP THERE! Yes you, the one that thinks that I'm making a silly post here, let me explain. So yes, I know that everyone and their mother keep their dreadnought fleets very close together and in save ports as much as possible during this period, but I'm not hallucinating this scenario. Between December 1913 and June 1914 two battleships of the Kaise class, the Konig Albert and the namesake of the class, alongside the light cruiser Strassburg, traveled around Africa and South America in an attempt to test their turbine engines and to show the power of the Kaiser's navy to the world. They visited several German and British colonies in Africa and then went to every port in South America worth visiting before returning to Kiel having sailed 23.000 miles without issue. While they missed the start of the war by more than a month, if for whatever reason August 4th had found them in South America, what do you think would have happened? If a dozen or so cruisers caused so many headaches for the Royal Navy a couple of battleships would have caused chaos at the Admiralty Building (BTW, Was sending battlecruisers against battleships at this point considered reasonable? Just asking since sending any ships from the Grand Fleet was a big no-no as far as I know and well, battlecruisers weren't designed to face actual battleships) And the Germans don't have an easy way out either. They can stay in the area to act as commerce raiders in a very important sea route for their enemy (Something a 21 kn ships wasn't good at) and see how long they last, try and go straight to Germany through the Denmark Strait and the North Sea, were a considerable force would probably be waiting for them, or they can try and join Von Spee and see what happens... Any sort of opinion is welcome Premium T3 and one of the protagonists of this post, SMS Konig Albert

    WW! Submarine Uncovered.

  5. So, do we have any hope of WG adding WW1 era Battlecruisers? The closest ship we have in game is the IJN Ishizuchi, and its a paper ship. I mean, i like Ishi its a very fun ship, and have nothing against paper ships in game. But we have many British and German ships that were build and saw active service and combat during WW1. Those Battlecruisers that fought at Jutland would be some nice ships at tiers 3/4/5. Either as permiums or in a BB tech tree split. It would be nice to play with and against them in game. Do we have any hope of seeing any of these ships in game? At least in a near future?
  6. Una pregunta bastante simple. ¿Qué nueva línea, aunque sea ya de una nación presente en el juego, les gustaría ver? Por mi parte, me gustaría ver a los cruceros italianos y en segundo lugar a los destructores británicos RN Alberico da Barviano( hundido durante la batalla del Cabo Bon). HMS Lookout.
