  1. Also, was it just me or did all the voices of RN captains or RAF "Colonels" sounded decidedly not British?
  2. Saw, bought, waiting for 5pm to rush home (to play maybe one game before heading out on a volunteer ambulance shift for the rest of the night, civic duty sucks!)
  3. It's a shame HMS Conqueror isn't getting torpedoes, or else there would be a few interesting (semi-) repeats of history!
  4. If you have a valid argument to make about historical accuracy, please make it, then I and many other people will most likely listen. If you're going to cherry pick numbers, disregard historical record and claim that since another game has a different mechanic and therefore draw historical conclusions from it, don't expect people to react well to ill-informed arguments. You're right, you have a right to post whatever you want (so long as it conforms with the forum rules and policies), but that also means that people have the right to make judgements about you, your demeanour and your intelligence from what you post. I'm not going to share what I think of your points and arguments as many other people have already covered it and I was taught that if you haven't got anything nice or useful to say, don't say it!
  5. OP, just looking at your stats, your survival rate for the RN cruisers is pretty low for the Emerald and Leander (8% and 18% respectively). If it helps, concentrate on staying alive first, not trying to get as much damage as possible. Hiding in smoke/behind islands, getting in positions where the enemy is concentrating on someone else, making sure you've always got an escape route if things start shooting at you and NEVER allow yourself to become the focus of an enemy BB. Hard to master I know but the line is really good fun and I think it makes you an overall better player once you have mastered it. Keep at it, it gets better! Just remember that you can't take any shots once someone is shooting at you so it's time to run and hide.
  6. ...seeing as he's now a "compatriot" of the motherland!
  8. I was always under the impression that WG don't tend to nerf Premium vehicles directly as it would be treading a fine line of false advertising as people have paid real money for the specifications they bought, if WG then changes that later on, it would surely piss people off?
  9. I'm beginning to form a theory. I may be completely wrong but that's what I'm here for, agreement! I'm starting to notice a pattern, I think we can all agree there are quite a few people out there who make.... questionable.... judgements when playing. They tend to always be on my team! (I know, I know) However, if the person with below average tactical ability is in a Battleship, Detroyer or Carrier, it feels like it makes less of an impact than if the bad team members are in Cruisers. This may because I tend to play battleships and therefore rely on Cruiser protection, but I've started to feel it when driving other classes too. I think, basically, if you have good Cruiser drivers in your team, you're a hell of a lot more likely to win than if you don't. Discuss ;)
