    Another DD nerf? What I have seen are nothing but DD buffs and all other classes nerfs, either direct or indirect. I might be mistaken, so could you please list the direct and indirect DD nerfs and the non DD nerfs?

    Update 0.8.0. Prepare for Takeoff! - Discussion Thread

    Since it seams I am in the mood to type, so lets go..... This post will be somewhat "messy" but I will try my best. I have been playing the game since Open Beta but only have a mere 4.000 battles because I play the game a lot on and off. Yet even on the off times always kept in touch via youtube and so on.... I am not a DD captain and only recently began to play them, so that may be the cause or just because I am a "bad player" but I will try to be as impartial as possible. Here are some of my concerns and points of view. Why isn't the radar normalization (ranges at least) hitting at the same time as the CE changes? If you are increasing the ranges, for sure you recognize the impact the CE change will have on cruisers (at least). Some time ago Worcester radar range was decreased because it could "stealth radar" (ohhh such a bad bad thing) Don't DDs can stealth spot and stealth torp? Yes I agree that there is too much radar in the game and yes, I get the rock-paper-scisors and it must exist but.... radar is the only effective and yet not guaranteed tool (I know the margin is small, but it is there), to know who is spotting you. Why isn't radar range the same as the spotting value of the ships that have the ability to have radar? (yes I know and recognize there are a couple of ships where this could be problematic.....) For me the problem is not so much too much radar, but the lack of an alternative tool, so I ask: Why is there no other tool to effectively spot DDs or who is spotting you back? To hard to increase the flying distance of the fighter plane and at the same time reduce their spotting distance so that they could be used as a tool to guarantee spotting back the ship that is spotting you? One major concern I have with 0.8 that I fear will greatly and mostly impacting cruisers, is the lack of a spotting tool to replace the fighter plane. The current fighter plane is being transformed from a spotting tool into an AA defense tool and no tool is being introduced to replace it. Also, the fact that torpedoes are now invisible to planes... Yes cruisers can have hydro, but is can, not, do have, or when they do have, you have to choose between it and DefAA. The fighter plane was an AA defense tool yes, but it was a token defense, a "bonus" so to speak, that was not really reliable or used with that purpose in mind (AA or at least it was not by me) but rather used as a spotting tool. I fear cruisers and specially BBs life will be very hard and I suspect much shorter. I hope that I have made myself clear and not bias/ anti-bias towards any given class, feel free to ask and I will do my best to clarify my points.

    I really hope you don't go forward with this "fix". This will effectively remove 20 seconds of smoke fire from DDs and also the hide behind island shoot and move. For your detectability will be, for those 20 secs, the same has you had shoot in open water... If this goes forward, and despite me not being a DD captain, you are effectively removing the ability for UK DDs to smoke shoot and turn it to an escape tool only. Not that I don't mind with a nerf to DDs, that has been the single most directly or indirectly buffed class, but this will be a major unbalance factor to cruisers and BBs and for these two classes will be yet another nerf. Not to mention a significant change in "game mechanics" (for lack of a better word).

    What? Is this real or someone (Google) screwed up in the translation? Fixed an issue which immediately removed a detectability penalty applied to a ship after firing its main guns if the ship was not in the target's line of sight. In Update 0.8.0, the penalty will work for 20 seconds irrespective of whether the target enemy sees the firing ship or not."

    Carrier Rework Beta Test – Server Restart Schedule

    That was for me the biggest fail of all. The Game Center splits the news articles and only show the ones related to the game you have selected instead of showing ALL of them like when you don't have the game center. For that reason I was completely unaware of the test schedule because no article related to it was showing. One can argue that I should have checked the forum, but we all know that not every player does that and I always had used the news at the perfectly working "old" launcher to keep track on the news. Result: despite having access to the the test, and due to RL events, when I was to go to the CV test, it had already ended -.- Had the news be all into the same place and not splited, like in the launcher, for sure I wouldn't have missed the schedule article!!!!!!! I just hope that I will still be eligible for the next public test.

    The Ring / Contributor Battle / Relaunch - Discussion Thread

    One for english and another for russian is so...... Following the same line of thought, you should make one for each language. Why not "force" english as the contest language? Makes no sense to me. Average player participation is scraps. Just the enough so you can say we have a word. Not good. But at least no more formulas :)

    Update 0.7.10 - General Feedback

    I find it very strange that the St Louis, a cruiser, on the Saving Transilvania has 4 fire nodes instead of 3 as usual. Also, more important than that, is the fact that that information is not displayed ingame and you only find that when playing the scenario. Pls inform players INGAME of the 4 fire nodes on the cruiser or correct the bug. 0/
