  1. As an owner of all the ships potentially being changed, I still wanted to be objective in my reasoning why I did or did not support post-release nerfs of them. Since I bought or otherwise got them a long time ago I got to play them in their original form quite a lot, so I landed on the side of allowing them to be re balanced. But seeing all the different arguments coming from other people I eventually started moving over to "maybe we should leave them". The most valid argument to me was the fact that most of these ships had officially gotten the status of rare collectible and was still being used to sell containers not too long ago. While I would never buy ships with the assumption that they would be exempt from rebalancing, I can definitely see how someone could draw that conclusion from the official handling of premium ships up to this point. tl;dr - In theory you should be able to nerf premium ships, but you'd also have to make a good faith effort to communicate this to people before they spend money on them. So in this specific case I don't think it's okay to directly nerf premiums. So I support the choice WG has made on this issue.

    Uhmm... On a more positive note: POI!

    I'm guessing it will be similar to the previous collab. So we get some commanders and some camos. And by "get" I of course mean "get to buy".

    Proper WoWs.

    I like to use Enterprise as VO for WoWs, she fits the more realistic setting. And you can't really top "Owarida!"-ing someone with a dev strike. Unfortunately the same qualities that make her perfect for WoWs also makes her quite boring in AL.

    Yorktown is very well rounded and also tanky. She's a good workhorse. Enterprise is the alpha damage queen and really good in PvP. Hornet is very similar to Enterprise and similarly focused on alpha damage. Lusty is unfortunately not a very good CV since you don't have much use for pure AA CVs. GZ is really solid in a fleet with lots of Ironblood ships. Unicorn being one of only two effective healing ships is a must have on some harder maps or to support some weaker vanguards. Compared to Shouhou Kai though she's more support focused and brings less damage to the fleet. Bouge is good for being a poverty CV. Might be good for building a low cost low tier farming fleet. Sirius can be good for PvP as well against CV backlines. Of course you can oath your favorite waifus. I was just trying to be conservative with your free gems. I oathed a few game-wise sub-optimal ships like Eugen, Warspite (Kai when?) and Sandy (Kai???), but I also spent a good chunk of cash on the game. Morale isn't often an issue unless you spend very long farming with a low cost fleet. The biggest use of extra dorm slots is passive XP gain for more ships.

    Depends what you're going to be doing with the fleet. Early-mid PvE allows for basically anything. If you want to get the most out of her you'd need a CV heavy fleet. On her own she's pretty average damage wise, good AA and a very good barrage. So she'll probably do good work if you have some gold 100mm guns for her. Belle is mostly a PvP ship but a good one, Hood is solid if you didn't get Amagi, but PoW is only good if you have a very solid 5 Eagle ship fleet for her to be in. California isn't anything special, might be okay for running a poverty fleet (but that's really a job for Hyuuga). Indy is okay early because she's pretty tanky, but when you get more ships there are better CAs. Personally I'd go for something more utilitarian than rings if you're playing for free. Port slots or dorm slots for example. Early dorm slots pays off in the long run to level ships faster and keeping them happy.

    You don't sound like someone who "gotta catch 'em all", so you could probably skip those two, Jamaica and Fiji. Me who wants to collect all the ships, I spent a bit more time grinding for Fiji, for example.

    Been slacking on non-event gameplay, but I finished C9 today and started on C10. Lucked out and picked up a nervous kitty on the way.

    I was also plane starved for a time at the start. But now I have 6 unused Helldivers in reserve. Even a Barracuda to spare. Though I wouldn't mind some more T3 catapults.

    I've been trying to make a cozy dorm for my ladies. Turns out that cozy to me includes having lots of food to snack on.

    Welcome to the forums. First of all, this game isn't trying to be historical. If there is ever a choice between gameplay or realism, this game picks gameplay. That's not to say that the game doesn't try to respect history, just that it has priorities. Now the CV rework is by no means perfect or even close to being finished in the first place, but I think you'll have to get used to each strike consisting of 1-4 planes based on ship, tier and type of plane. By the looks of it AA should get toned down a bit in the future when multiple ships are providing AA fire. WG talked about this recently.
