    Japanese Carrier Submarines

    The 'bombers' were intended to paralyse the lock gates of the Panama Canal. If used as spotters in WoWs, then they would have to be left behind (if airborne) if the sub has to dive quickly. Even if they were not airborne, then the mechanics would need time to dismantle them to get them into the pressuretight hangar before the sub could dive.

    Poll: Puerto Rico Grind

    See what the costs are when the 8.11 drops. For a reference as to relative value, a T8 premium costs between 8k and 13k Db.

    Poll: Puerto Rico Grind

    I have seen a video somewhere that suggests that I can drop 3k Db and the ship will pretty much build itself whilst I concentrate on knocking off Snowflakes and chasing Gorizia.
  4. I will not be playing at high tiers once these upgraded ships become common. If someone is a more skilled player than me, fair enough. If they have a ship upgraded in ways I cannot achieve, that is not fair. I play the game for enjoyment, not because I have a masochistic compulsion to. Its a game, WG, not a test of manhood. When they become common at low tiers, I shall stop playing altogether. In the meanwhile, don't expect any more money from me.

    Sabaton Pays Tribute to Bismarck

    Good song. How about one to Prince of Wales and Rodney? They sailed away from the battle.
  6. Given that most BBs reload in about 30sec, if you have AP loaded you have no way of stopping a DD that suddenly ambushes your BB. Solution for BB players; Keep HE loaded permanently. Stay well away from the battle and snipe from the back, spamming HE. Stay well away from islands that could hide a DD. Isn't this the kind of playstyle that WG are trying to discourage? The right solution is to get a cruiser to escort your BB, but how many CL players are prepared to stay close to a BB hoping that a DD will pop-up? If your escort runs away, most BBs are too slow to keep up. I predict that this change will misfire badly, in terms of BB play. Please at least monitor the stats. Peter
  7. How about an Officer Exchange programme between RN and Commonwealth ships?
  8. Good guide Hawg. How do you know when you are going to collide? If the other ship has a Constant Bearing relative to yours. ie If you watch it in normal view and its bearing relative to your viewpoint does not change. Also; The first rule in the rules for prevention of collision at sea is; 'Maintain an effecient lookout by all available means'. Simply listening for the grinding sound of ship on ship is not sufficient.

    What achievements are these resources given for? How can I earn more of them? Why does the Arsenal require special currencies? Why not just use Credits & Dubloons? Peter.

    Ranked Season

    Am I doing something wrong? Reward on 'main account 4' is supposed to give signals when played with a t7, but it will only let me play with t8? Am I supposed to get to the superleague and use t7 there? If so, it should say so on the combat missions panel.

    Space Battles

    'Space Battles' are just Randoms with a gimmick. Like all gimmicks, the novelty will wear off quickly. A few points; 1) How is it possible for a ship to burn in the vacuum of space? 'Sinking' in space is also difficult to get my head around. 2) Space is a 3D environment (3 directional, thanks, Prof Hawkins) so why are the ships confined to a 2D plane? Perhaps 'Warplanes' would be a better basis for this mode. Star Wars has taught us that in space a Laser blast can come from any direction, and these spaceships are unprotected from below. 3) In space, no-one can hear you banging your head against the screen. Being an older player, I find it hard to see the targets. 4) There is a very terrestrial feel to the artillery. Surely spaceships would fight with energy weapons? Lasers, or whatever. WG has obviously put a lot of work into Space Battles, and the visuals are great, but a bit more thought about how things would work in space would make it so much better. The supply ship for receiving containers is brilliant, and well thought through. Perhaps it could lead to a whole new game/title for the ever growing WG stable?

    Update 0.7.2 General Feedback

    MrEasyUK post about the hacks. If honest players made more use of WASD, then the effectiveness of these cheats would be greatly reduced. At short ranges, aimbots are redundant (unless your guide dog is playing for you).

    Update 0.7.2 General Feedback

    Small point, not strictly about this update; As the signals are now grouped to make them easier to find, would it be possible to arrange the flags into 'Favourites' and 'The Rest'?

    HSF - High School Fleet

    I'm looking forward to the mission for this great camo. Just after I have finished the DoY and Rain missions would be nice.

    Dog Tags

    I don't find that the emblems/insignia/dogtags enhance the game. There isn't enough variety to make them distinctive, and even if there were, I don't think I would want to wear one. Maybe I am just 'mature'. In fact I am nearly an object of naval history myself...
