  1. I think the new US cruiser line is useless, up until 10.

  2. I'm remembering why I left WoWS...  image.png

      Fucking WG games and the people who play them ;-)

  3. Pensacola would not be out of place at tier 5.

      Historically, I guess. Yes. V or VI would both be viable.

      Lol, I thought you were rating the actual city. As a place, it's a tier 3 at best.

  4. Bomber Crew was a great distraction for a few days.

  5. Did they change spotting range on torps in Wows?

      IIRC the Shimas 20km torps were 2.1km spotting? go check that and see if its different.

      They did a pretty large rebalance on torps and detection ranges back in the pre-6.0 series of WoWs.  They made the detection of the 20km torps 2.5 km and dropped the speed to 62 knots.  At the opposite end of the spectrum are the Khab torps - they have only 6km range and a speed of 53 knots, but they have a 0.5km detection range  So yes, you need to look carefully at the torps to see what the current detection range is.

      Meant more recently than that.  Was playing for the first time in a few weeks yesterday.  Didn't see torps until it was too late.  Used to see them from much further out.

  6. First WoWP problems:  I have a ground attack mission that requires winning.  But winning is impossible, unless I take a fighter...

      Lost a game earlier, 597 to 33.  My team had the 597, but decided to all die after the squall.

      GA don't win games. Bombers don't win games. You can remove those two CLASSES from the game and exactly nothing will change.

      That's how irrelevant GA was, is, and will be,

      Until I have idiot teammates/bots who die to air defense planes, making it impossible to cap a point until more air defense planes spawn.  At that point, there isn't much a slow fighter can do.

  7. P-51 is as OP as ever.  Can beat 109/110 in energy fights, and everything else in turn fights.

      I pulled a 20k base XP in UP/Japan planes mission today.  I think I'll start those two lines.

      I pulled a 20k base xp in USSR/UK planes.  Thank goodness I picked up a Seafang for the T8-10 missions.

      Still no 8s.  Will have a 262 before long, though.  And my leveling idea was shot down by the inability to sell more than a few planes per day.

  8. I think the point of WoWP 2.0 was to eliminate solo play.

    1. Tedster59

      Tedster59

      I wouldn't be surprised.  And I didn't even see it was you until after I killed you.

  9. WoWP 2.0 is good and all, but no amount of updates can fix players...

    1. Errants

      A perpetual issue of developers, from what I hear...

  10. Yep, still hate Amagi.  Bouncing off the sides of DDs.

      git gud, amagi is bae

      As much as I try, I can rarely make it work.  Playing it is a chore.  Seems way too soft, and the guns rarely work at anything closer than medium range.  I possibly play it too aggressively.

  11. Didn't much like Hipper, but Roon has me loving WoWS again.

  12. Just found out the Captain of my ship plays WoWs.  And used to play WoT.

      So, he likes ships that are small, fast, and nimble. Literally everything his actual ship isn't.

      It's like his version of an RPG.

      lol

      It's all cool so long he as doesn't try to role play as the captain of the Costa Concordia.

  13. I'm told people actually like the Amagi.  I can't understand why.

      played a game in amagi for science. first salvo: 14K to Roon. second salvo: 16K to Des Moines. 

       

      seems fine to me

      I've got the hull.  Maybe the engine too.

      Playing the stock Amagi and saying its a bad ship is like playing a stock T-54 and saying its bad. Stock anything is bad and shouldnt be compared to fully upgraded counterparts. 

  14. I don't remember the Iowa being this  terrible .

      Well, its a fast BB, with not amazing armour, and all the idiots play it.

       

      The first 30 Iowas I had fired at, and Im serious here. I counted, ALL drove completely broadside to me and got Citted. Literally, the first 30 in a row that I had seen ingame. 

       

      I just treat Iowas and Montanas as farms now.

      It's penned by anything at any angle.  Can't turn.  Guns are ok, but you can't survive long enough to use them.  My Atlanta is more durable.  Only way to play it is to park in the corner.

      With that sort of typing you must be smashed

  16. Back at see.  Home port in New Jersey.  Sailing to Bermuda, Bahamas, Orlando, SE Caribbean, and (in a couple months) Maine and Nova Scotia.  

  17. Back home for a bit.  Any of these games worth playing?

  18. Shipwide network failures are fun.

  19. We're one step closer to Idiocracy being a documentary, rather than comedy.

  20. On my way back west.  Valencia today, Lisbon two days after.  Azores two after that.  Then, across the pond to San Juan.  

    1. TAdoo87

      Just out of curiosity, how long does it take the across the pond part?

      We're doing it in 5 days.  More or less.

  21. I've finally managed to secure (mostly) unfiltered internet access.  I could, in theory, play tanks.  Albeit at 600+ latency...

  22. Today will end in a promotion... or dismissal.

      @PityFool I sacrificed some reds to save the ship.  And called the captain a europoor fgt for not stocking gold consumables.

      I'm still on the ship.  Not quite promoted yet, but have been approved for training that is necessary for the position I would be promoted to.  (Probably a year off still.  Officer level promotions come slowly.)

  23. Someone died during a lifeboat drill on one of our newest ships.  My significantly older ship is due for the same drill on Friday...

      Investigation ongoing.  Judging by what I know, I suspect one of the two lines that lowers the boat came loose.  This makes the (quite heavy) life boat go from horizontal to vertical very fast.  That's bad for anyone who may be on it.  That's worse for anyone who may be in the water below as the thing swings toward them.  

      Last I heard, 5 crew members were involved.  2 had been released from the hospital.  2 still critical.  1 died.  

      Usually this sort of thing is caused either by mechanical failure or human error.  As this is a very new ship, mechanical failure seems less likely.  I didn't know the one who died, but he had served on my ship before.  Some people here know him.  

      We drill at least once per cruise, and actually lower a boat around once per month.  Goal is to reduce the likelihood of human error.  Incidents are rare, but that doesn't do much to set people's minds at ease.  Not sure if we're going to go through with our drill tomorrow.  Might just do a standard drill without lowering the boat, and resume the monthly boat drill after the investigation.

      sounds like winch brake failure :S

  24. 0 games on the 60 day tab again.  Now, my WN8 is free to increase.  Proving once again that not playing is the only way to win.

  25. Some new ports this week.  Ajaccio, Toulon, Barcelona, Palma...
