    On the battlefield we may be allies, adversaries, maybe even enemies. But in the end we're all in the same boat!

    USS Georgia Model - Man those guns are longgggg

    I do prefer paper ships over completely made up ships tho. To me it has to be at least kinda plausible. But I agree, THE main thing is that it's supposed to be fun (and plz no P2W, Wargaming )

    Newport Station Operation - flooded with potatoes

    Winrate does matter if it's the extremes (40% will never be good and often 60% will perform better and in worst case will be a selfish player who screams at how incompetent the teammates are after they died, but they know how to farm a lot of damage anyway) and usually >50% will perform at least reasonably even if they never done it before. And these will usually (but not always) follow up orders or tips about how to win the ops if told so, because they are usually smart enough to see the difference. Clan tag is irrelevant. And usually it will be the same players over and over again who are known to be reliable instead of being a liability as people who frequent the operations channel will know one another. From my experience, the best indicator is to look at someone's stash of operation specific awards. I particularly check if they have lots of them (and I mean like 300+ Natural Selection or 500+ Sea Star/ or 30+ Major Contributions or at least 100 to 200 Tactical Expertise and Assistant). Anyone with less of these awards in any category is just another operation's n00b in my book

    Poll: How should WG handle overperforming premium ships?

    Only the ships that were purchased in or directly marketed through the premium store. Which means problematic ships like the Stalingrad may still be changed.

    [PSA] Giulio Cesare Testing and Premium Ships Status

    And poor turret traverse and bad conceilment.

    Hold on to your hats BB players - The DD Players have a new target

    I think this is a good analysis. This lack of self-critisism is visible not just in games but on social media as well. And I think it extends to outside just gaming. In the end it's just a way to legitimize getting more lazy. And then gamedevs (of any game) start dumbing down the game. But this is also about getting an audience. There's an insane number of great games out there these days and if you publish a game that requires people to get gud, these people you mention will simply think "This game is stooped! " and simply switch to another game and the publisher is without a lot of (potential) earnings.

    Your favorite cruiser: Tier for tier

    @FukushuNL created a thread about your favorite top 10 DDs by tier (link in spoiler) I liked the idea, so here's mine with your favorite cruisers tier for tier. Mine are: 1) Erie (Used to be Black Swan before they nurfed it! :'( ) 2) No favorite 3) Caledon or Friant, but haven't played either for a long while now 4) Phoenix or Danae 5) Omaha or Emerald (still waiting on the St Patricks Day camo to make a return, my doubloons are ready! ) 6) Pensacola (or Budyonny or Nürnberg or La Ga. Hard to pick a favorite in this tier). 7) Atlanta (aka Spamlanta aka Lolanta) 8) Cleveland or Charles Martel 9) Donskoi (perhaps Alaska will join later once I played her a little bit more) 10) Wooster, no contest here So what's your favorite cruisers tier for tier?

    Your favorite DD: Tier for tier

    2) Storozhevoy (torpmania) or Tachibana Lima because it's a premium with a camo that looks like ice cream 3) Wakatake (because halloween camo and 10pt cat commander) or Derzki (torpmania) 4) Clemson 5) Ohkotnik 6) Hatsuharu 7) Sims 8) Cossack/Lightning or Benson (all fit my playstyle very well but Benson has a halloween camo on top of that). 9) Black, but mostly because it's the only one I kinda have? (yes I got 2 more but neither even has a serious cap on them yet). For coop I also like to play Kiev (didn't make it on my list), but apparently tier 8 is actually my favorite DD tier lol Hatsuharu, I think I removed its commander but I thoroughly enjoyed that grind for sure. I kinda like never play the low tiers anymore, but these ones are my first picks usually.

    Completing older event collections

    Seems like they release an arsenal collection box offer after about a year and a bit. Good thing WG listened to all the people who never managed to complete these and gave this nice addition to the game at virtually no cost to them whatsoever

    Well playing smart is in short supply for sure (especially in ops). But I think most people simply don't care about playing smart and log in and click battle just so they can shoot the red stuff and watch all the pretty explosions

    PTS - Rewards and Arsenal

    They don't appear to always be included as a mission, but usually you should still get the rewards. Doesn't make this lack of communication to PTS testers any less confusing though.

    There's even a skill that tells when long range shots are on the way to you and there's ample time to dodge. It's only about luck if the player getting shot at is not paying attention which by default is his own responsibility anyway and kinda excludes luck as a valid excuse. I mean, you often get more then 10 seconds to dodge the shells, easy enough to do in a small agile ship.

    Newport Station Operation - flooded with potatoes

    I think on average 1 every 2 days is actually quite lenient

    It's not a smart thing to do to go in yolo into a cap and start capping. You need to know where the enemy cruisers are first. And it's the same as a BB player needing to know where the enemy DDs are before starting a push and cruisers needing to know where the enemy BBs are before firing their guns. And of course many BB players will fire their guns from maximum range is there is no other target they can shoot at. Better to do a couple potshots for 1k damage without any consequence then to not do anything at all. Especially at the beginning of a match I see this happen a lot when everyone is still moving into a position.

    Yes because if you're in a DD and are getting hit by a BB from 20km range, it's obvious that BB gun ranges need to get nerfed
