Hello Captains!

How was everyone's weekend?

Did you visit any museum ships this past weekend?

Did you achieve any goals in the game that might have been challenging?

Did you unlock any ships that you have wanted for a long time?

Share with the community anything ships related that you did this weekend!

I, actually, came back to wows after a 3 month break. Was mad that wg was selling black shops and a WV nobody wanted, plus I got boring because I had all the tier 10s I set out to get. Came back Thursday night, played probably close to 100 battles since then. Having to cram 2 months of PEF missions into 2 weeks really turns the grind mode on. PEF isnt great, and it wasnt too productive of a weekend, but it was pretty fun:Smile-_tongue:

I met my driveway this weekend.  With a snow shovel.

It had a negative impact on my gameplay.

I finished the grind for Prinz E F, bought Salem with coal and purchased Grosser Kurfürst. Luckily the PEF grind gave enough silver to fully equip Salem and GK with modules. It made for a busy Sunday. GK was my 150th ship!

I'm afraid that I didn't do anything ship related this weekend.  As luck would have it, some large men armed with meat and beer commandeered my humble home and and we watched the NFL playoffs.  Not that I care really, but, as I said, there was meat and beer.  And some good company.  Can't really beat that.

Funny you should mention this..   In september I moved from Canada back to the UK and moved to a town called Dartmouth in Devon.  Dartmouth is the home of the Royal Naval Officer training college which I attended in the late 70's.  It's not a museum ship, but it felt like I had never been away.    Also got to lay a memorial at the Falklands memorial inside the college for my friends and buddies that never came home with me.

Overall it was moving but also enjoyable and was fun talking to some of the new recruits that are just starting the same courses that i did back in the 70's :)

Photography is not easy in Brittania for security reasons, but there are pictures I have that I am adding to this post....

Thanks! Those are awesome to look at. The difference is astounding. Wait, in that last picture those are retired ships?

yep  both were ships of the line from the 1800's :)  HMS Brittania was a 120 gun ship of the line launched in 1820. Decommisioned in 1843 and then moved to Portsmouth as a cadet training ship in 1859 and then refitted, with masts removed etc and moved to dartmouth in 1863.  She served in the mediteranean in the 1820's and then in the crimean war as flagship of Sir james Deans Dundas.

HMS Hindostan  (sorry my spelling above was wrong,  I type too quickly sometimes)  was an 80 gun 2nd rate ship of the line launched in 1841.  She was retired from active service and moved to dartmouth in 1865 where she was refitted, again with masts removed etc.

Both lasted until the new college opened in 1905 and were then scrapped.

Finally finished my snowflakes, after taking a break.  With the coal, and a little bit of the steel, I got Salem with the coupon this weekend, so I'll work on JB slowly now.

Spent a fair amount of time on the PTS playing with the CVs, seeing the changes, etc.

Finished the PEF missions. As has been mentioned, not a huge amount of fun. A few lines worked really well. I did the IJN as a matter of ranking out of the sprint as I use Fuso almost exclusively. The German line wasn't too bad and I forced myself to play Hipper a few more times. 

The French line was a real surprise. Jean Bart is a credit magnet much like the Missouri and a lot more fun to play (for me). I managed the French line in about 7 matches.

I'm now north of 150 million credits.

You will love the Salem, what iloses in Radar compared to Des Moines it more than makes for it with the super heals. Kept my Salem alive in some Clan Battles when I am certain a Des Moines would have been sunk.

 

As for my Weekend I have successfully aquired the PEF, and now working through the campaign to get the ships, port slots, and crates. The final Camo PEF will be nice, but that’s optional. Ships, port slots, and steel come first. Other than that the weekend has been continued preparation for getting my CVs sold off post update and ultimately having a solid submarine force later on. Also having the CAs and DDs on hand in case the subs get out of hand, but that part of things has mostly been completed now with several fine lines of CAs and DDs on hand. Hatsaharu DD I got From PEF Campaign has proven to be far more fun to use than its reputation would suggest, although guns fire just slightly slower than I would like, the DD is very nice. So yet another bonus from this weekend.

Keeping the captains in reserve straight as to which are there for subs and which are there for surface ships has been fun challenge as well. My plan is to add at least 18 subs ( tiers 6-10 from USN, KM, and IJN) at this point

I finished the PEF campaign and all the steel missions on Friday, so I'm done. I took the weekend off from WoWs and didn't play. Just hung out here and answered questions.

I had an interesting weekend. Didn't get the chance to visit a Museum because North East Missouri doesn't have many Museums. But its not like going any where this weekend would have been possible with 14+ inches of wet snow on the ground. Missouri doesn't get that much snow in a given year and its normally spread out over many months. We might get a few inches at once but mostly its a dusting that melts in a day or two. Heck Ice Storms and Freak Winter Tornadoes are more common than a large amount of snow. But not this time, Missouri weather decided that what the state needed was a 3 day snow weekend. Several years worth of snow showed up at once and fell like, "FWOOMP". We are still digging out. We've resorted to farm tractors, shovels, and some people are turning into Snow Icecream and eating their way out. 
Don't get me wrong the area looks awesome buried in the stuff but they are predicting 9 more inches next weekend. So keep us in your thoughts as most of the people around here don't know how to deal with this much snow. And if you happen to live in a dry place let me know and I'll ship you a box of the stuff.

Got a few crates on a whim and ended up with the Krispie Kreme and the Monaghan. Not sure if I should call that productive or not :Smile-_tongue: (I was aiming for flags and camo not ships).

I managed to finish four of the six 4 million credit tasks and hope to finish. Saturday I was about as far from the sea as I could get with some colonial miniatures, an Anglo-Egyptian force being attacked by the Mahdists in the eastern Sudan.

Snow has blanketed Virginia, so my time has mostly been spent inside for the weekend. 

Did some WoWs missions, worked on some models, etc. Not much.

Nice models and cool table-top battlefield! Thanks for sharing. Did the Mahdists win or did Kitchener save the day?
