    Tallinn appears to be a monster.

    Just checked. This ship guns have WORSE dispersion than Molotov or Kirov guns at T6 and T5. T8 Tallinn has 177m dispersion at 17.7 kms range. 10m per km of range. T6 Molotov has 130m at 15.5km range. 8.38m per km. T5 Kirov has 135m at 16.3 km range. 8.28m per km. T9 D.Donskoi has 163m for 20.6 range (with GFCM 2). A ratio of 7.91m per km of range. So it's not T5-6 guns at T8, its worse guns meeting T10 battles... Another fantastic job at WG department of Vodka and Balans.

    No way. Dispersion even at medium ranges is BAD, let alone at long range where you must be because of that terrible handling. The ship is bad. Just compared it with the last T8 cruiser I grinded, the infamous Albemarle, except for winrate (something that doesn't depend on the ship but your luck with team mates) Albemarle is better in all stats. Go figure! I'll take any other T8 cruiser before that one any day of the week. Maybe if some day games stop being made of 5 battleships and have more cruisers this ship will be viable. Until then... port queen as soon as I finish the grind.

    Rusian 180mm are fine... at tier 5-6 for Kirov-Molotov. At Tier 8 I'd rather have 9 Baltimore 203mm than 12 of these 180mm.

    I just played the stock grind and the ship is a turd. Now that I have developed hull and fire control it improves a bit, but the explosive ammo without IFHE is useless. And that turning circle radius... Same hull as Hipper, but 160m wider because... WG. I was very eager to play this ship, but the hype has gone down the drain after a few battles.

    California in Shop

    So this ship is a summary of all the buffs New Mexico needs. But at T6, not 7 (21 knots at T7? LOLorado is not enough?).

    Okay this has to stop

    Don't use smoke close to friendly BBs? Don't play destroyers?
  7. Since I never fell for the container scam, most of my purchases have been either premium ships or doubloons later used to get premium ships. And I'm quite unhappy in general. I really regret buying Blyskawica (completely powercrept by newer lines and premiums), Atlanta (nearly useless as AA cruiser) and the 9 de Julio/Boise combo (hit by IFHE rework). Also the first two Premium Italian cruisers, which apart from being meh, had no use in training captains for the later standard line of cruisers (moral: never buy a premium whose standard line hasn't been already released). Oh, and my very first Premium (the Yubari), which I bought in CBT, that has never been useful because WG decided to make any missions at least T5 (which also invalidates my Ishizuchi), and whose AA power has been destroyed with the carrier rework. And all the destroyers, which I stopped playing after CV rework. RIP Gallant, Anshan and the already mentioned Blyska. In the end, I'd be faster naming the ships I've been really happy with (Warspite, Scharnhorst, Giulio Cesare, Wichita, Molotov, Murmansk).

    Asymmetric Battles?

    This was already tried in the Closed Beta and already discarded. And it was a good decision. What idiocy will we have next, CV only in one of the teams? (yes, they were that "clever")

    What makes you consider quitting WoWs?

    Currently having a (probably very long or definitive) break because of: 1) Average player is extremely idiotic 2) Constant +2 Matchmaking 3) Carriers 4) Subs in the near future 5) WG and their idiotic way of doing things in general a) Sick fixation with T9 and T10 b) WG's conception of "F2P" business c) Lies, lies and then some more lies d) Tons of paperships, tons of Russian ships, ignoring other countries real designs e) Lottery As you can see, except for the retard playerbase, all the rest could be summarized in one word: WarGaming. A very amateurish game company who hit the bull's eye once with WoT. Otherwise they'd probably have already disappeared.

    Need the Mutsu a buff ?

    Played a few games with Mutsu when WG allowed us to rent some ships for credits, and I didn't feel it needed any help.

    Discussion about the Thunderer

    LOL What? Guess you missed the /s at the end, didn't you? The only similarity of WoWs with naval warfare is the name of some ships.

    Conquer the Stars in Master of Orion!

    @hooodstar @NobleSauvage I opened a ticket and now just got the answer from Player Support. The solution is here: https://eu.wargaming.net/support/en/products/moo/article/32652/ I installed the mentioned libraries and finally got access to the main menu. Now I just have to learn how to play :P

    How do I boost my WR?

    Avoid carrier planes, spot enemy DDs, avoid some more planes, sink enemy BBs, avoid yet more planes, try to cap avoiding radars, avoid more planes, run away from enemy carrier And pray that your team is somewhat competent.

    Update 0.9.3. European Destroyers: Part 2

    Yes it did work. Thanks.

    Conquer the Stars in Master of Orion!

    LOL, another massive fail. Did the 1st part of the mission, got the option in WGC to download and install. Did flawlessly, then pressed PLAY. A nice intro video, and then... this No menu, nothing to click, no key pressing did anything... the planet slowly rotates and there's a cursor though. A lovely scene, but WTF. Had to kill the .exe from task manager. Then tried the repair option in WGC. Spent a while, and then the same again. UNINSTALL.
