, or why evolution works so much slower than it otherwise could

 

TLDR unless a biology nut

 WOWS is a biology lab, among other things.  It demonstrates natural selection and artificial selection at work, q.v.:

Evolution and natural selection review (article) | Khan Academy

As well as this fascinating differential equation:

Microsoft Word - Notes-Predator-Prey.doc (psu.edu)

A predator with truly upscale skills would soon run out of prey, is the short read.

 In WOWS, the deity, which we’ll call Minsk, steps in before that happens, because prey is its bread and butter too, so to speak.  So Minsk cuts the predator’s reproduction rate, and the prey recover. 

BALANS is restored more quickly than in nature, where, absent Minsk, prey are eaten and predators starve, until there are more prey than predators, and, if enough predators have survived to breed, the wild differential equation dance begins again.

Contrary to popular belief, capslock is not cruise control for cool.

And proper use of lower case sure ain’t no fix for tear-jerking boredom. I mean the OP is swinging-for-the-fence boring.

Disjointed. Has no conclusion. Generates more questions than its worth to engage in.

I have literally no idea what you are trying to say here.

some drugs are awesome.

The only issue is that anything really good is regulated or illegal.

I ground through Minsk twice, almost exclusively in co-op, when I was going through one of my burnout-from-Randoms phases. The fact that WG had given away a permacamo just before I got into her helped a lot. 

That ship is HILARIOUS in co-op, because the need to launch torps at less than 3km if you want to guarantee any hits at all means that her one big disadvantage (relative to all other T7 destroyers) is completely nullified.

And that speed enables you to make a Yolo Emilio blush.
