WOW has made them into paper. Almost not worth playing any more, like the rest of the game!

I'm thinking they just made yours into paper. Mine work as well as they always have.

Apparently still worth enough to continue coming to the Forum and whining for attention.

I thought they had made them into 1’s and 0’s... :Smile_hiding:

But seriously, what do you mean by “paper?” If you are referring to “paper ships,” the USN line is one of the lines in game best represented by “built-in-steel” warships, with 7/11 of the tech tree (and all but one of the original branch) being “real” ships. If you are referring to armor, I wasn’t aware of any recent changes, and USN BBs continue to have fairly middling protection overall.

If several players cannot get out of the paper bags well... must be pretty cozy in there some mornings when it's chilly outside.

I think he's meaning the latest patch de-historicizing how a lot of ships in WOWS are configured.

It's hard to say with him. He's always quite vague, and rarely does more than start the topic.

Vermont is an excellent example. 

Upon release the guns were extraordinarily accurate. I've screenshots and battle recordings that show salvos with very narrow vertical dispersion landing most of the shells basically in a line along the target's waterline/wake (when aimed for it).  This was 100% consistent. You never had salvos where half or more of the shells just landed way short or way long. Firing at a 16km+ bow on cruiser and aiming at their deckline you would ALWAYS see two of three shells per turret landing on the cruiser. It was that good.  

As of last patch, the accuracy was ninja nerfed hard. The vertical dispersion is now at least 3x bigger what it was upon release. Now you fire at a broadside target and you get shells landing everywhere but the vertical point you aimed them at. The 16km+ bow-on cruisers? Now you watch two of the three shells per turret ALWAYS landing in front or behind the cruiser with wide margins and the third shell randomly hitting the ship somewhere.  

This is the same type of nerf Yamato received long ago when Musashi came in. People are still in denial of it yet those of us who played that ship exclusively day after day for years noticed the change also right after the patch and posts went up about it in NA and asia an EU servers. Now its Vermont that got the ninja nerf delivered the same way.
