  1. Would this not be accurate training for new players for when their team tries to "win harder" in higher tiers...seems about right to me?

  3. @ForlornSailor You'd better get playing your GC to train up a Captain for the new line

    My Kure Dockyard Ship

    I could spend hours in places like that I've been to Munich a couple of times, loved the city and surrounding area (went on trips to Neuschwanstein Schloss, Oberammergau, King Ludwig's Linderhof palace), and of course enjoyed the different Bier Halle. I hope to go back to this museum someday...when we can do things like that again. Edit: Just looked up the link...I've been there! Clearly missed the Bismark model at the time

    My Kure Dockyard Ship

    Excellent looking model Ocsimano! I miss the old transport museum in Glasgow...the ship display was amazing (as a child and an adult). The new display just isn't the same in the new building. https://www.google.com/search?q=glasgow+transport+museum+ship+models&prmd=isnv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjEgPK8_cXuAhVQSsAKHdBVB3MQ_AUoAXoECAMQAQ&biw=412&bih=688&dpr=2.63#imgrc=49U1DSlHG2Dl_M&imgdii=--AKvgpJFCzuOM https://www.google.com/search?q=glasgow+transport+museum+ship+models&prmd=isnv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjEgPK8_cXuAhVQSsAKHdBVB3MQ_AUoAXoECAMQAQ&biw=412&bih=688&dpr=2.63#imgrc=--AKvgpJFCzuOM&imgdii=49U1DSlHG2Dl_M Think many of you in this thread would've enjoyed this place too. Edit: I'm a bit crap and couldn't get the images to attach

    Mysore vs Perth

    @MrConway Thanks for the response. I'm not sure if you would have access to the data, but it seems to me a lot of people play their lower tier premiums in Ops even now to grind FXP or even credits, especially so if strictly PvE. I did wonder if there was an economic case to be made for more focus on Ops (as I say perhaps you have this data). There are suggestions on this thread from @Verblonde and @hgbn_dk that could leverage existing Ops without investing into creation of new ones (which I hope will happen in the future...some day). As others have pointed out they are somewhat of a refuge from randoms and CVs for some of us (and potentially in future subs also). Perhaps a way to retain a section of the player base not overly enamoured with CV rework or other recent/proposed changes?

    Mysore vs Perth

    Well look at that, people buying ships on the merit of purely for use in Ops. Now imagine they also did this for low tier ships (T5 and lower), so we could actually use our T3, T4 and T5 premiums in Ops too (and of course silver ships). Granted WG don't make as much profit as an ARP Yamato...but it's still income. We discussed historic scenario Ops in other threads before, @MrConway is there any plans to show Ops some love in the near future?

    demount all upgrades button

    Just highlighted this in another thread...there doesn't appear to be one. Right back to doing the same thing we did after the CV reeeework.
  10. Reset all skills button...great addition, now where is the free demount all upgrades button to go with it, since this is also free at the moment? Oh well...
  11. Hmmm...Matron! Saucy stuff... Back on topic, I'll be hitting that button too, just hope this update isn't as painful as the CV reeereereework. I took a long break after that one, I hope I don't feel the same way this time.

    Strasbourg Campaign Guide

    The time delay is to incentivise you to buy the Strasbourg, rather than waiting to complete the Strasbourg campaign for free. Buying her gives you more time to complete ships and fates if you're interested in the rewards in that campaign. Just another marketing tactic like Santa's convoy in the past with the Graf Spee.

    Share your Santa Loot Here!

    40 Mega and 40 Big (2 x 20 of each = £171.94) Plenty of signals, camos, coal and doubloons. Ships: Orkan (£28.99) Vanguard (£37.43) Saipan (£31.80 - I don't play CV really) Ochakov (£31.80) Yudachi (£14.35 - estimate cheapest shop T7 DD price) Makarov (£13.65 - estimate as Molotov price) Marblehead Lima (£6.41) With some of the doubloons and coupon bought Bayard (£31.80) = £182.58 in terms of value in ship prices according to shop listings. Honestly not sure how I feel about that haul of loot in terms of value Ships I do not have that are on the ship drop list are still quite a few: T7: Florida T8: Z35 Pyotr Bagration Kaga Cheshire Indomitable Alabama Kii Roma Graf Zepplin Siliwangi T9: Friesland Azuma Pommern Agir Jean Bart Benham Neustrashimy "Rare" Fujin Kamikaze (have Kamikaze R) Imperator Nikolai Gremyaschy Flint Enterprise So...still plenty of ships that could have dropped.
