  1. [Ship Review] Kelorn on Asashio [WiP]

    This! WG are very reluctant to change (nerf) premiums, so if this ship has a bad influence on the games it participates in, it will be a big hurdle before WG fixes it. People are by nature lazy, and this seems very much like a ship that lends itself to lazy tactics. 1. Spam torps from long distance ... 3. Profit! Yes, this seems like a real threat to BBs, but likely NOT to the ones sniping from 20kms, but the ones that push. I'd much rather they tried to change the BB meta by making it harder to be lazy in a BB.
  2. Nope. In this case I'm all for the distinction between EU and US. The US also like to play their boardgames with dice, the filthy windowlickers.
  3. Segal's departing

    That's actually not such a bad idea. Name the new guy last name 'Dough' or simply 'Baker' and make him the baker of Missouri. I really like the little guy walking around on the decks of Missouri and would miss him. With a different name and backstory, maybe we could keep him.
  4. Tier VIII matchmaking

    Maybe they could make the matchmaker dynamic, and switch between +/-1 and +/-2 depending on the number of players. Not sure about how the extra logic would affect processing.
  5. Poll: Ship Class for Stalingrad & Kronshtadt

    Why? I'd rather see they tried to do away with the classes and tiers, as it seems to add a lot of arbitration. One possibility would be to match up players and ships via bidding. Your bid reflects what you think your contribution will be in your selected ship. If you bid low, your share of the XP and money will be less, but there will be more room for other/more skilled players. If you bid high, you get a larger share of the team's XP and money, but there will be less room for others, so you _have_ to make a larger contribution. It isn't a completely thought-out and balanced suggestion, but I think there could be something of interest there. Bids would probably have to be supported by a statistics interval, so it shouldn't be possible to bid very low in a Yamato. Examples of effects I _hope_ to see: - No actual need for paper ships, since you don't need ships to 'fill all tiers'. - A-hulls and non-modernized versions of ships will be playable in their own right, since their bids will be lower. - Jutland!
  6. Which forum members have you seen in random battles?

    It was on North, but I don't remember which ships we rode, sorry. I remember we said Hi at the start of the match, though.
  7. Which forum members have you seen in random battles?

    Had @Leo_Apollo11 on my team yesterday. Unfortunately I think we lost.
  8. Which forum members have you seen in random battles?

    Met Gojuadorai recently. I think we were about to lose when my game client decided to drop the connection
  9. New ship Preview: Kii (Japan)

    Dupe - 'Saving' the post is bugged - it leaves the post in editing mode, so if you save it again, it gets duped. Extremely bad UX design if intentional.

  11. New ship Preview: Kii (Japan)

    While I agree on the seas and so on, I think there would be some structural problems with the (most likely armored) mast-like superstructure being placed on top of a hollow like that. I think the room for the launchers would have to be a lot more shallow, and not through-and-through.
  12. Hear, hear. Not to mention it screws over _your own product_ by reducing the utility of all previous (non-def-AA) BB classes. Same goes for any other leapfrogging over previous ship lines. Powercreep kills the game. Period.
  13. wg, your minimap sucks

    ...or just press the right mouse-button, keep firing with the left one while you maneuver around any obstacles with the keyboard.
  14. Interesting MM. Any post-battle screens to share?
