Very nicely done. A person really can't appreciate how big the guns are until they are standing next to them in person. The only battleship I've got to personally visit is the USS Alabama. Been inside one of the turrets, they are huge.

Running out of video content ideas, WG? How about stop wasting time while ignoring the problems in your game and fix them!

Take a moment and read that last sentence will you.

I liked the video, I liked the presentation and the content.  What it does, for those of us who really like the game is give us the desire to learn more about these ships and their history.  This is not just a game...its an education.

I'd like to give a special thanks to HamptonRoads Commander for his excellent post.  It really brought to life exactly how awesome these guns are and truly added some depth to this forum.

I also was about to ask that question.  I play the Montana and was upset that the Montana's guns were not listed. However, we both got our answer.  What was listed was the guns of ships that existed in the U.S. Navy.  I am satisfied.

Yes. You explained this quite well.  Also, you mentioned the Iowa which is the only BB that I have been on.  I have been neglectful in playing her.  When I was new (years ago) I made the newbie mistake of wanting the biggest and baddest American ship out there.  Why play a IX when I could play a X.   It took me a while to understand why coming up in the ranks is important in World of Warships. I have gone back to a VI and VII which I am enjoying.

They do of course, but I wish they didn't try to reach for the stars.  Up Up they go. over hill and mountain they go, and then they drop. Drop they do like a stone. Great for sending, not so good to be on the receiving end.
