    DevBlogWoWs: CV Changes and Roadmap

    I mean, to me they seemed urgent enough that I thought they were for, till you pointed out that it said 0.8.4...

    Russian BB 3D Models released

    T4 Gangut was real.
  3. Well, there always is Albany.

    I'm curious, what's the female proportion in WoWs?

    For some it will, for some it won't...

    The Overpen mechanic. RNG or Skill?

    Reason I posted the different citadel sizes and positions. I thought they'd be self-explanatory.

    My Take on British (RN Cruisers)

    Exeter is not a mini-Belfast and more of a British Furutaka after latest (much-needed) balance changes.

    The Overpen mechanic. RNG or Skill?

    Deck thickness also matters for HE pen. Also, generic common plating is a bit iffy, as it might be true, but at times only applies to extremities (Hindenburg has 27 mm bow and stern... then 30 mm everywhere else. Gneisenau has a 25 mm stern and upper bow, then 50 mm deck, 70 mm lower bow and 45 mm casemates that laugh in your face. Furutaka has a 13 mm bow and then proceeds with 25 mm sides that bounce all T5 BB and a 48 mm deck that shrugs off whatever BB shell hits it and all HE except BB HE and Yorck...) Also, common plating thickness does not explain why certain ships get overpenned more often than others. Why is a hit on a Cleveland an overpen most of the time, but on a Mogami or Chapayev with equally garbage 25 mm (or Edinburgh with even less armour), it's a ton of cits?

    The Overpen mechanic. RNG or Skill?

    It's RNG insofar as dispersion exists. It is skill insofar as you should know where to aim on a ship. USN CLs are a prime example, as the CL line (so, not Omaha) have pretty small citadels compared to other cruisers of their tier and they got little to no armour anywhere else. Thus, overpenning them when you don't hit exactly where the citadel is is a given with a high pen BB like Musashi on a broadside target. To be fair though, the amount of RNG that goes into overpens is actually less than goes into ricochets, which you supposedly understand, because ricochets have an area where they are possible, but not guaranteed, adding RNG ontop of just dispersion. Penetration values are not RNG, nor are armour models, so apart from dispersion throwing your shells wherever, it is possible to guarantee an outcome with proper aim (but dispersion exists, so at any significant range you can't guarantee anything). What makes this more complex than ricochet likely is that it features more interaction with interior parts of the armour model (though shells can ricochet off internal plating too, but such is typically still a pen/overpen and thus displayed as such).

    Put Washington as Fleet 2 flagship, put Yorktown where Cali is, put Cali in fleet 1, make Hood fleet 1 flagship. This gives you two fleets with a barrage BB/CC in the center location, where it has best coverage when it spews out its shells. Replace California and Tennessee down the line. QE+any RN ship or god knows what.

    If they were all into oppai, DFC wouldn't be a thing. Personally, I don't care either, as long as it stays within reason.

    Ryoubi seems cute in general. Just the bust size increase on transformation is kinda unnecessary.

    Decent. Staple in Fletcher fleets.

    Surcouf maybe. I-19 certainly is a loli though, even if maybe oppai loli.
