    Nearly joined Navy as doctor, was leading cadet in Naval section of OTC and been mad about ships since a child - made large scale models of warships with boyhood friend, sailing them on large pond and blasting them with air gun from about 50 yards! Long time ago but good aiming practice! Not so good for the fish!

    I agree - couldn't do the 5 hours! - but a great tactical but fast game.

    Maybe once you have a certain number of battles you are barred from playing tier 3 or lower unless you play in particular ships. How about Mikasa as the battleship, Albany as the cruiser and either Smith or Tachibana as the destroyer. To be honest, this type of scenario should also be true for steel ships. They have to be interesting but challenging to play - maybe give them double XP or credits - but make them weak in at least one way. Then a good player faces a real challenge. The same should really go for Premium ships - great rewards but a flaw that only by playing well can you survive and reap the rewards.

    Karma. What's it all about?

    Agree with you - mine just slowly ticks up with the odd report for sinking some sensitive soul. I too am no brilliant player, but I am never rude in chat, try to play for the team and don't do anything too stupid too often! Usually use all my compliments and rarely any reports.

    TOTALLY NOT OP Soviet battleships

    Agree - Russian DDs and Cruisers are perfectly reasonable - they have a different play style to others but this adds variety and they have weaknesses that allow counter play. Russian BBs however are simply too strong. The dispersion at under 11km is ridiculous and the bow armour means that attacking with an RN cruiser is practically pointless. The only solution is to try to torp and get them to broadside but of course you will probably get insta-deleted trying. And it rankles that these are all paper ships when the only real Russian BBs were outdated and pretty terrible. Reveals the Russian development team as being rather insecure. Why not just have used the Royal Sovereign and GC that actually sailed under the Russian flag (we can forget the appalling lack of maintenance) as this at least would have resulted in ships with a degree of balance. By all means make up some fantasy higher tier ships but making them more powerful than the US/JP equivalent is ridiculous.

    Clan brawl

    No waiting, and in our clan, everyone is a recruiter or above anyway. Like playing Shipstorm so great fun!

    Oh go on - it is a fun ship. It is completely useless in almost every regard unless you find someone silly enough to get into secondary range (or inexperienced - it is Tier2!) Then it lets loose with a hilarious amount of secondary shells. What is not to like!
  8. I am surprised you have not tried the RN battleships - although Orion was very OP when it first came out, they seem reasonably balanced and it is fun playing real ships - at least up to tier 7! Warspite is a great ship - awful gun traverse speed and made of firewood but great guns and turns on a sixpence (and unlike the real one, the rudder doesn't stick!) I do agree about the Russian BBs - for a nation with just one proper class of BBs, the imaginary friends they bring to the party are simply OP. The bow armour is encouraging the stationary bow tanking play which makes higher tiers tedious. I confess to rarely playing BBs - my favourites are Warspite and for some reason Fuso - Nelson is fun but so slow and has a huge citadel but a super heal!
  9. Why don't you join a clan - you get a chance to play with others and probably enjoy things more. You will also get cheaper ships, more XP and get to play operations with friends - and even clan battles in some clans. You are welcome to join ours - mainly lone wolf but friendly! We have a number of very occasional players but who are still welcome. I preferred the Fuso to the Kongo personally though I don't really play battleships. I prefer the adrenaline rush in a destroyer or cruiser!!

    Friesland: before you spend your FXP

    Came across my first one when out in my Lightning - essentially one to one and it melted. I saw it first so had an advantage but I thought it would destroy me easily.

    Why has the flag on the Błyskawica changed?

    I don’t disagree with you - the only reason I suggest this is do that the commander can be more useful and the Polish crewed many RN ships.

    Worcester and Minotaur Fake XP's

    Neptune is a floating citadel - if I meet one in an Edinburgh I always fancy my chances . It is just so tall! Minotaur seems easier to play but I prefer T7 & 8 mainly

    Remove Colbert and Smolensk From the Game

    I got the Smolensk because it is clearly op and I agree likely to be short lived like the Belfast - clearly needs radar though😀

    Why has the flag on the Błyskawica changed?

    You cannot have Allied and Axis - what do you do with the countries that changed sides? I do understand the OP though - Poland played an important role in defeating Germany and losing the status of individual nation is clearly going to upset some. Maybe they should be allied to the Royal Navy as they fought alongside the British valiantly.
