    Karma, not Carma (didn't you notice the red line under the word?)

    Why didn't Japan ever make a quad 25mm?

    Not entirely true. Yes, one can make the mount turn by changing the gearing, but, as many navies discovered, not fast enough to track a fast-moving modern (for the time), plane. As for powered mounts, many navies, the IJN included, tried them but had problems with reliability during combat as well as with supplying power to mounts added to an older ship.

    Service Costs/Credit Rewards

    You have been given a lot of good advice, here's my 2 cents worth: I am an average player (barely), I play on a standard account and usually make money on tiers 7 and below and break even on tier 8. For BB's, I've found buying the premium repair and heal is a good investment. I buy the permanent cammo on all my ships when available, yes it costs IRL money but saving 22+ silver per match adds up. As for affordable premium ships that make money, the Murmansk (I won that), and the G. Cesare (I bought that because I love how Italian ships look), do VERY well. One other thing, I play for fun and never forget that.

    PT 0.7.5 Bug Reports

    kHad the server crash while I was still in queue for a match - the teams/mission didn't show yet, when I was crashed out. I printed the screen but can't find it - Windows 10 sucks that way. I tried to rejoin but got the same crash so I rebooted my PC and still got the crash. I wasn't able to log in until the match was over, by which time I was pink. That WILL be unacceptable on a regular server! b.t.w. there was another player on my team the next match who was pink for the same reason, so I don't feel like the Lone Ranger...

    Shinonome

    I have had great luck with her, the ship that really should be dropped a tier is the Hatsuharu.

    Why didn't Japan ever make a quad 25mm?

    Another issue is that quad mounts require more horsepower to turn. Any manually powered mount would have to be able to be turned by Japanese sailors. Their small size was why the 5,500 ton CL's had 5.5" guns instead of 6" - their guns were manually loaded and the average Japanese sailor couldn't lift the 6" shell.

    Mutsu - Yes or No?

    I bought her because I like to collect. I have found RNGesus doesn't like her main battery guns one bit and don't use her much as a result.

    Super Containers Premium ships distribution

    I always try my luck and have gotten 2 premium ships on both the EU and NA servers from containers for a total of 4. I have opened many super containers only to get signals, upgrades, silver, and once, 1,000 doubloons. Obviously, not all super containers are born equal!
  10. Perhaps this is a dumb question but I can't find a thread about it - I play on both the EU and NA servers and would like to be able to pick which server gets the rewards I earn on the Public Test server. Is there a way? Thanks

    PT 0.7.5 General Feedback

    I got kicked from the server while waiting in the queue and was unable to log back in. I kept getting Windows errors, so I tried the EU server and had no problems, even won a few matches. Later I tried the Public Test server again and got in only to find I had been turned pink for 3 matches due to inactivity in a match. WG should be able to tell when a player has been disconnected, the penalty was entirely inappropriate.

    Oil on hand

    Greetings - I am not a newbie but I can't seem to find out how to tell how much oil I have. Thanks.

    Name of my ship not on details screen

    A few days ago I sank a Hood with my Bismarck and I wanted to post it (I post screenshots on DeviantArt as 62Guy). I went to the details page where it showed I sank the Hood. The problem is that the name of the ship I used (the Bismarck) is nowhere on the screen. Is there a way I can enable this? If not, could WG change the screen to show the ship that did the deed? Thanks

    container

    The odds are just that, odds. The fact you flipped heads the last several times does not change the odds of getting heads the next time. I do think WG reduced the odds of getting a SC though.

    some questions and advice needed

    While I agree that, especially in a battleship (BB), there's no point of staying zoomed in after taking a shot is good advice, you should zoom in to see the shells land. Otherwise, you can't correct your aim.
