  1. How do I feel about winning? I GUESS THat SAy's IT ALL!! Thank you for the prize #WarGamingGC
  2. It is in my honest opinion ok but not great. Why mix in captain skills for 15 point captains (or what you think would do and why) The vid didn't feel as 1080 but that could be me talk about modules, more fires(roasting) more explosions (new mechanics)more torpedo dance(always great to [edited]a dd captain) less Yuro, more you, more BB and cruiser explosions, more Dasha and more fires( or did I mention that already?) did like to see more so that's why I subscribed ( i know it take a lot of work)
  3. You can find those here:

      Thanks for the reply, I have the lootboy app but I have my genre set to simulation and no platform in my preferences, just wondered what you had yours set at.  :)

      does not make a difference I believe only if you take the premium

      Thanks, makes sense :Smile_teethhappy:

  4. Hello there, I wondered why I see posts that can be up or downvoted? I thought that voting was done for? Why can some posts be voted on and others are not?
  5. WARGAMING! World of WarShips it is time to get personal. Dear people at WarGaming(WG), World of WarShips(WoWS) and Community, my name is DutchDelightsNL and I love to play WoWS, even worse I spend a lot of time playing this game. So now I have grown fat, did not exercise enough, spend my time either playing the game, thinking about the game or research the game and it's ship on various social media. Before all of this happened I played World of Tanks, also a great WarGaming product, where I learned a lot about tanks and history( I still sometimes play) But being a former NAVY man myself I always had more interest in a Game like WoWS, I love the ships, not all of them of course, the History and especially Ships like the TEXAS and Warspite both ships have a lot of history. So on track again I played WoT and tried some WoWp(mehh) and love WoWS because I liked World of Tanks, but in a while, it felt that there were too many people cheating, and well server lag on my age really ruins a MMO-Game bad. So WarShips gave me some more time to position and have not had the feeling that people were cheating in the game. Still, I play on different servers, and it sometimes feels that EU falls behind in missions and rewards, ok so be it enough drama. But coming from WOT they have a system of personal missions that in my own opinion would do this game some good. Because it is always nice to get a premium but what do you get for just one-day premium, with the mission goals starting on Friday ends on Sunday, which leaves you with 24 hours premium on Monday's!? Nahh no good, so I was thinking what would it be like to have a system that does not need much development(because you have such a system in WOT) where you could do missions and with the reward(let us, for example, say 4 hours premium X3 or X6) we can use them when we like, and maybe some missions for DD, BB, Cruiser and CV and then reward you with a ship like Shinonome or something. So for each class, you get different assignments(missions tasks), that would maybe help to the flood off battleships in the game? Further more it would also be nice for an easier way to contact players from your team or enemy team, maybe have the players in some sort of link so that besides reporting or complimenting them you can send them a message or see their profile in WoWS, maybe even a system to make it more easier to get in touch with players in the game maybe some kind of symbol in game where you see (in port) that someone has sent you a message? That is what I wanted to share, thank you for listening DutchDelightsNL
  6. We would like to say "hello there" Nine News Sydney @9NewsSyd Destroyer HMAS Hobart has taken up residence in Sydney Harbour.
  7. Date announced for HMS Queen Elizabeth's planned entry to Portsmouth Britain's new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth is set to enter her new home in Portsmouth on Wednesday 16 August 2017. The 65,000-tonne carrier, the biggest warship ever to be built in Britain, has been undergoing sea trials since setting sail from Scotland's Rosyth dockyard in June. She is now set to make her historic arrival into Portsmouth on Wednesday at approximately 0710 where she will be the latest in a long line of famous Royal Navy ships to call the port home. Weather conditions meant the exact date of the historic moment could not be confirmed until today. http://bit.ly/2i1woo9

  9. PAN ASIA TIER DESTROYERS II-X PAN ASIA TIER II DESTROYER LONG JIANG The destroyer was ordered in Germany in 1913 to replenish the fleet of the Republic of China with modern ships. She has never been built, but she served as a prototype for V-25-class German destroyers. Long Jiang carries V-25's top config as her stock config(105mm guns and G/6 AV** torpedoes), but it requires XP and Credits to unlock her deep water torpedo armament. Similar to Enterprise's dive bombers, Pan Asian DDs can only carry either regular torpedo or deep water torpedo into battle. PAN ASIA TIER III DESTROYER PRA HUANG ex-Radiant, a Thornycroft R-class destroyer. She was transferred to the Royal Thai Navy in 1920. She was well armed and maintained very high speed. For almost the entire service life she was the most powerful torpedo ship of the Thai Navy. The maximum damage of Phra Ruang's 102mm HE and AP shells are same. PAN ASIA TIER IV DESTROYER SHEN YANG ex-Namikaze, a Minekaze-class destroyer, she was transferred to Republic of China Navy in October 1947. Shen Yang's armament is completely different from what Namikaze used to be. She is refitted with triple torpedo tubes. Starting from Tier IV Pan-Asian DD no longer use the German-DD-alike smoke generator. PAN ASIA TIER V DESTROYER JIAN WEI The flotilla leader project was developed in Great Britain and offered to the Republic of China government in 1929 (T.306 project), but it has never been implemented. The ship's armament consisted of five main caliber guns and two three-tube torpedo tubes. PAN ASIA TIER VI DESTROYER FU SHUN ex-Rezkiy, a Gnevny-class destroyer. She was transferred to the People Republic of China Navy in 1954. She maintained high speed and had a powerful artillery of the main caliber for her ship type. PAN ASIA TIER VII DESTROYER GADJA MADA ex-Nonpareil and ex-Tjerk Hiddes, a British-built N-class destroyer for Netherlands Navy, she was transferred to Indonesia in 1951. N-class destroyers originally had only one set of torpedo tubes, but she has two in WoWS. PAN ASIA TIER VIII DESTROYER HSIEN YIANG ex-Macomb, a US Gleaves-class destroyer. In October 1954, Macomb was transferred to the JMSDF and was renamed to Hatakaze. Later in 1970 she was again transferred to Taiwan Navy. Starting from Hsien Yang, Pan-Asian destroyers will all equip US-DD-alike smoke generator. PAN ASIA TIER IX DESTROYER CHUNG MU ex-Erben, a Fletcher-class destroyer. She was transferred to South Korea in May 1963. PAN ASIA TIER X DESTROYER HSIANG YANG ex-Brush, an Allen M Sumner-class destroyer, she was sold to Taiwan Navy in December 1969.
  10. It is here update 0.6.9 What will it bring besides the Yamamoto Campaign, it does have something very rewarding for you as a player especially when, - You are a fan of Arp Ships - You have a Dragon ship (or two) - If you do have an IJN Captain - You like to train your Captain with incredible speed to 19 - You kept all those Arp and Dragon Ships Well, something you might have missed in the update from Dasha, that in this new update 0.6.9, Captain from IJN are now fully interchangeable with both ARP and Dragon Ships So now an x3 exp for the first win and you have an IJN Captain, comes to if you still have all 9 Arp Ships and the Southern Dragon that would bring you 11 times, x3 exp for your IJN Captain. And then there are also some extras like signals not included. So in a short time, this will lead to a 19 point IJN Captain. And that my dear friends will lead to you yes you guessed it! 11 times XP multiplier a day (and your signal multiplier), which leads to in a short time very much Captain exp for free which you can then also use on your other Nation Captains. So my guess would be to see a lot of ARP and Dragon Ship in the times to come Dutchdelightsnl
  11. Pan-Asia Destroyers: Deep Water Torpedoes BY HARKONNEN August 9, 2017 With the introduction of Pan-Asia Destroyers, Wargaming plans to make the newly branch unique by giving it deep water torpedoes. Of course, this is still just a test, and then this isn’t set in stone. The idea is to make the line unique with specific torpedo armament. After testing the Pan-Asians with the normal loadout, Wargaming plans to test deep water torpedoes. Deep water torpedoes interact with the draught of the target: they can easily pass underneath a light ship without any damage. As a trade-off, such torpedoes can boast improved concealment, so catching those Battleships by surprise would be easier. But will it work? Does the game need such torpedoes? It certainly is a better alternative than the usual unique consumable Wargaming has been using for a while now For the more distracted readers, Wargaming announced the introduction of the Pan-Asia Destroyer line, made up of ships from giving different Countries: Great Britain, USA, USSR, Japan and Germany.
  12. Tier and Tech Tree added
  13. Anshan-class destroyer The Anshan-class destroyers were the People's Liberation Army Navy's (PLAN) first destroyers. They were ex-Soviet Gnevny-class destroyers purchased in the 1950s. The Chinese later added HY-2 anti-ship missiles and removed some of the torpedo tubes, and redesignated as Type 6607. After 1949 the PLAN negotiated with Britain through Hong Kong to buy some second-hand ships and boats but unable to do so due to the Korean War. As a result, the PLAN turned to the USSR to buy four worn-out destroyers with 17 tons of gold. The Anshan-class ships were withdrawn from active service by the 1990s, but retained as training (# 104) and museum ships (# 101). The PLAN retains ownership through PLAN funded institutions. Anshan (# 101) ex-Rekordny, Museum ship in Qingdao from 1992. Fushun (# 102) ex-Rezkiy, Scrapped 1980s Changchun (#103) ex-Reshitelny, Decommissioned 1990, museum ship in Rushan. Taiyuan (#104) ex-Chin Lin, ex-Retivy, Stationary training ship for the Dalian Naval Academy. So there all over from other countries that do not mean I love those ships.
  14. so new additions to the Pan-Asian Tech Tree. From China, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan and South Korea Fu Shun Tier VI (China) destroyer. The Anshan-class destroyers were the People's Liberation Army Navy's (PLAN) first destroyers. They were ex-Soviet Gnevny-class destroyers purchased in the 1950s.

She was laid down on 22 May 1940 as a British N-class destroyer, HMS Nonpareil, but on 27 May 1942, she was transferred to the Royal Dutch Navy. The ship was commissioned in 1942[1][3] as HNMLS Tjerk Hiddes, named after the 17th-century Dutch admiral, Tjerk Hiddes de Vries. Much of her war service was with the Royal Navy and the United States Navy in the Indian Ocean and Australia. Following the war, the destroyer was sold to Indonesia and renamed KRI Gadjah Mada. She was scrapped in 1957. Shen Yang Tier IV (Taiwan or Republic of China Navy, ROCS) Namikaze (波風 Wave Wind) was the second ship of the Nokaze sub-class, an improvement to the Minekaze-class 1st class destroyers built for the Imperial Japanese Navy following World War I. Advanced for their time, these ships served as first-line destroyers through the 1930s, but were considered obsolescent by the start of the Pacific War.

E. Edwards in command. Brush was decommissioned and stricken from the register on 27 October 1969. She was subsequently sold to Taiwan 9 December 1969 and renamed Hsiang Yang, which was later stricken in 1984 and transferred to Naval Weapons School and then broken up for scrap. Brush received five battle stars for World War II service and four battle stars for her Korean operations. Long Jiang Tier II, Jian Wei Tier V, Cheng An Tier I (Taiwan) The Shimushu-class escort ships (占守型海防艦 Shimushu-gata kaibōkan) were a quartet of ships built for the Imperial Japanese Navy just prior to World War II. Background and description The Japanese called these ships Kaibōkan, "ocean defense ships", (Kai = sea, ocean, Bo = defense, Kan = ship), to denote a multi-purpose vessel. They were initially intended for patrol and fishery protection, minesweeping and as convoy escorts. The ships measured 77.72 meters (255 ft 0 in) overall, with a beam of 9.1 meters (29 ft 10 in) and a draft of 3.05 meters (10 ft 0 in).[1] They displaced 870 metric tons (860 long tons) at standard load and 1,040 metric tons (1,020 long tons) at deep load. The ships had two diesel engines, each driving one propeller shaft, which was rated at a total of 4,200 brake horsepower (3,100 kW) for a speed of 19.7 knots (36.5 km/h; 22.7 mph). The ships had a range of 8,000 nautical miles (15,000 km; 9,200 mi) at a speed of 16 knots (30 km/h; 18 mph) Chung Mu Tier IX (South Korea)ROKS (DD-91).

Since 1983, she served as a stationary training vessel. The ex-Erben is reported to have been broken up TechTree
  15. Ranked Season 7 Or Ranked on a personal note. Although I heard many complaints about this season of Ranked(7), on a personal level? I enjoyed it very much. Why? Well, I did get to play the "green woodpecker" or better known as the Warspite,( to be honest with a 19 point skill commander, from the Dunkirk event). I liked, of course, the Arizona, found some new love for the Cleveland, spent free XP on the Anshan( also great). Was totally surprised about DD detection( so bad), had some really Great Team play, had some totally bad teams also! Did not had to wait long in the battle queue, great maybe because I do not have a Tier VI CV? Was surprised about teams being totally silent while playing( no Team work what so ever!!!) but giving lots of (UN)wanted advice after they were taken down, or destroyed. Lots of teams with "shitty" ships (for ranked) and waiting for you to make a move, only to kill steal. But he, my idea, an enemy gone is an enemy gone! I finally Ranked at 8, did make to 7 and then well you all been there. After all been said and done Ranked ILOVEIT but next Season TEAMWORK, TEAMWORK, TEAMWORK! Dutchdelightsnl
