    Where can I find stats about Ships pickrate?

    Maybe http://maplesyrup.sweet.coocan.jp/wows/ has what you are after?

    Supertest - Changes to Test Ships

    Super Unicum forcefield was down perhaps? The VU armor is relatively thick but not well angled, the entire casemate is corrugated so angling does not ensure that shells will ricochet. If you watch the clip at slow enough speed youll see shells hit the upper casemate, the upper bow (which Kaiser overmatches) and the superstructure, none of which would in any way guarantee ricochets and none of which is thick enough to prevent penetrations from a T4 BB that is less than 5km away, especially considering the casemate cannot be entirely angled to 30° due to its shape. And again, should the ship be immune to tier 4s? He took 8k dmg but did 9.5k in return when the guy was fully bow in with only 7 of his 12 shells, because while the VU may be slow, have little hp and poor AA it has a lot of potential damage in its main battery at a tier when basically every BB overmatches each other.

    Supertest - Changes to Test Ships

    I don't see the issue, all I see in this video is someone overreacting to taking 8k damage from behind. Do you expect a t5 BB to be immune to t4 BBs? Of the 8 shells fired at him 6 hit and he takes just under 8k damage. From a t4 BB at <5km that doesn't seem all that unexpected to me.

    Yoshino info

    The Japanese Super Type A cruiser type was considered a type of heavy cruiser by the japanese but meets most requirements to be considered a battlecruiser. Wargaming uses the term Large Cruisers (as most use the "Large Cruiser" dispersion model) when referring to ships such as Kronstadt, Stalingrad, Alaska and Azuma.

    AA and secondaries in percentages?

    Same, although I guess this would be a result of the AA dps scaling directly with the % of remaining AA guns so it technically gives a clearer picture of the status of your AA suite. Same can't quite be said for secondaries.

    Signal "Ouroboros" do not work

    Perhaps you should have clarified that despite seeming lost that perception is not correct as the bonus still applies and the flag works as advertised, as can be confirmed by anyone who knows where to look.

    Yoshino info

    This is the only official information im aware of. You can assume the coal price of a T10 cruiser based on the prices of Salem and JB. It will be a tier 10 B-65 project, so visually very similar to Azuma, perhaps with some 30mm armor plates and torpedos. Since it was announced so recently it will probably be some time before we see it.

    Ranked battles rework - Stars retirement

    I ranked out in 109 games. I played Lion because during the first few days of ranked it had the lowest winrate and the idea of playing Musashi or Kron or Missouri was pretty boring. I thought it might be a challenge. I saw very little toxicity, infact I think I had more friendly encounters than negative. But I never had the mentality of trying to work out if someone was playing just to save a star, it always seemed to me that if a game was winnable people were playing to win. Because regardless, you can't rank up by star saving, you just stay where you are. The progression style does not bother me, seems anyone can rank out in the end, the star system is a measure of winrate, I regularly found that as long as my own contribution to a game was enough that the rest of the team would usually turn that into a win. Your idea sounds like a complete downgrade in my opinion. I would rather ranked was not demoted to yet enough number grind of needing hundreds of thousands of something that you can slowly but inevitably achieve regardless of anything. By your logic may as well just make ranked a campaign of 20 missions to earn 25k base exp each and call each mission a rank. The star system as a measure of winrate works fine to me. The system is already like a safer version of CBs, it's like a continuous promo series that never ends. Instead of making ranked shorter perhaps they should make ranked longer and introduce actual league advancement and promotion series. But instead WG chose to pack ranked out with valuable currency for exclusive ships and had to make it into an accessible grind for everyone with mechanics like star saving and irrevocable ranks so that everyone can already get to rank 1 if they just try hard enough as long as they can attain any sort of >50% winrate. Another issue with your concept is that the speed you rank up is still based upon winning but when people can grind out progress then the people who are good players with limited time will often be surrounded by worse players who have had enough time to grind up to their rank. It removes most of the skill component from the mode in exchange for whoever has the most time and overall quality through the ranks will be lowered because higher ranks that were typically gated behind win/skill requires of needing consecutive stars is replaced by grind X exp. I'd prefer if they took steel out of ranked, partly or completely, distributing it out as a reward for something else alongside CBs, and made ranked more about winning because as it is atm people don't play it to reach a high rank, they play it for the rewards. It doesn't really deserve to be called ranked, theres nothing competitive about it, it's just another grind.

    Issues with log-in and Technical support

    I would suggest that he provides the oldest proof of purchase that he can find, such as if he has anything from back in 2015. The proof will most likely need to come from a period of time prior to when they suspect any account sharing occured. The emails include unique identifiers such as order number and transaction ID, etc, that any illegitimate account user would not have, but he must send them from a different email address if I understand what they are asking by not using an email address not already "bonded" to a Wargaming account?

    Why planes engines overheat when I slow down ?

    You can neither speed up nor slow down indefinitely.

    CV reverse xp

    If you select the ship via the tech tree you should be able to see any accumulated exp for that ship in the top right, regardless of whether you own it or not. If you refunded the Ryuujou then any exp you spent on it should have been refunded as free exp and any "elite ship exp" that had been accumulated on it should have been transfered to the tier 1. If you only sold the ship and did not refund it via the inventory then the exp remains associated with Ryuujou just like any other ship and you are able to use that exp for Ryuujou modules or to research Shoukaku in the future.
