    Poll: Which ship are you most looking forward to?

    But it's not fair I can't CV my way to t10 :( Btw sorry about the renown thing, I thought it was the repulse that had the big rebuild... I don't think support ships really work in this game.. I'm not sure if it's worth adding a fourth question, I am planning on having another thread to 'officially' crown the winning ship 'the forums most wanted', but apart from HMS royalist, I don't think any of them really have the star power of the illustrious, Rodney, shinano, renown etc. what do people think?

    Poll: Which ship are you most looking forward to?

    I’ll do another thread in a few days to pick the forums favourite potential ship, sadly it was all I could do with the tools available..

    Looks nice, though I wait to build up a list of candidates before adding a fourth question....

    Poll: Which ship are you most looking forward to?

    There's a limit of 20 responses on each poll. btw there are now three questions to add the suggestions people have made.

    Poll: Which ship are you most looking forward to?

    Can I apologise for not including HMS Dido, I forgot about her >_< btw why is she so loved, she doesn't appear to have that great a service record? Also the reason they are split is because I thought people could add their own ships to the poll making it more inclusive, sadly it doesn't seem to be the case... The one surprise is that shinano is more popular than lusty (HMS Illustrious),a Also, I'm glad to see a certain amount of support for introducing t2 CVs Part of the reason I made this was to highlight the list of heavy hitting ships which haven't made it into the game yet. but I couldn't find a reference to a HMS wolf, could you provide a link?

    Heads up: new T8 Cheshire and T8 Borodino announced

    Is this the ship in question? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Cheshire
  9. Hi All, I was just wondering what the response would be, there seems to be a heavy bias towards UK designs, but I was mainly focussing on Japan, US and UK as they had the most ships, I have tried to avoid paper ships where possible and focused on the ones with real history, what do people think? Best,

    Destroyer versus rocket planes

    With US t8 and below CVs you want to point your ship into or away from the planes to take minimal damage...
  11. Not true, you should see more early. You don't expect people to have reached the last chest, so there's a survivorship bias. ie. if it is random, and 50% of people reach chest 5, and 25% reach chest 10, you should show chest 10 as having half the drop rate of chest 5.

    Suggestion for New T9 UK Supercruiser: HMS Incomparable (1937)

    Just looked that book up, £15 on amazon... and I can imagine, I have read nemesis by max Hastings.. some of the details in that about American ship building... True about the dreadnought, all Fisher did was to make sure that the UK was a leader rather than a follower, the dreadnought was always going to happen even without fisher. The one thing he probably did was popularise submarines and battle cruisers

    Suggestion for New T9 UK Supercruiser: HMS Incomparable (1937)

    I disagree, dreadnought was NOT the first dreadnought laid down, she was the first completed.i forget what the first laid down was, but the bigger ships race was always going to happen the theorists had predicted it a few years earlier. So long as the British public was so determined to retain naval supremacy and Germany was so keen to seize it, an arms race was only a matter of time. I’ll have a look at the book as well it sounds interesting. but we are getting off topic...

    Let you see when a division mate has gone back to port. rather than having to guess.

    Suggestion for New T9 UK Supercruiser: HMS Incomparable (1937)

    I mean it makes sense, the book I was reading stuck one paragraph about the incomparable right at the end of the chapter detailing how battlecruisers dealt with WWI and the opening line was not the way to make something sound interesting. "it is perhaps worth mentioning - but only just- that in 1912 Fisher had been contemplating the construction of Incomparable, a mammoth, diesel driven, shallow draft battlecruiser, 1,000 feet in length, lightly hulled, but with a central citadel protected by 16 inches of armour, she would have mounted six 20 inch gun in three turrets. A coffer-dammed, honeycombed double bottom was to be filled with cork. With a speed of 32 knots plus, Incomparable would be capable of steaming around the world without refuelling. She was intended to last only ten years because, Fisher reasoned, all warships would have become obsolete after that time." Battlecruisers: A History 1908-1948 by Ronald Basset Given that it spent quite a lot of that chapter talking about the furious and courageous, along with other schemes to take the fight to the Germans, the Incomparable (and the final sentence), reveal a lot more about Fisher than about British battlecruiser design. I still find it staggering that there were only ever 12 battlecruisers ever made for the Royal Navy, and this design and the author thought this idea only merited one paragraph.
