  1. Well now secondary armament is totally inadequate in any role, either a deterent to DDs or dishing out respectable damage to more heavily armoured targets.
  2. Historically, secondary armament was for the defence against fast and agile torpedo boats and further down in time against destroyers. Not mentioning the dual purpose guns. Can we agree they were never to be used against other BBs? In this light, why don't we all agree that they should be highly inaccurate at range - more than 5 to 6 km - but highly accurate and destructive to unarmed targets at close ranges. Thus, making yoloing by DDs a highly suicidal decision.

    AFKs in ranked

    For me worst is either bots playing or really really bad players. AFKs are common and it's a part of online play. Yesterday, I played three times in qualifiers for silver with the same player one against and two in the same team and I think you can imagine which two I lost and which one I won. The guy had thousand of battles and wr in the 30ish. In all battles he managed 200 to 250 xp. He reached qualifiers just by being carried I presume.

    Steel from Dockyard Event

    It seems that there is a concessus that we get 2000+22x2000=6400 steel. What is the additional clan % on steel earnings 10%?

    Steel from Dockyard Event

    It seems reasonable enough. But still cannot confirm it from WG. Thank you

    Steel from Dockyard Event

    Yeah, but do these bought phases reward steel themselves or not if you finish the 22 grindable phases?

    Steel from Dockyard Event

    True, and logical. But on the other hand there are supposed to be 26 stages but 22 only directives or both numbers coincide to 26? The thing is that I cannot find the total figure mentioned anywhere from WG.

    Steel from Dockyard Event

    Does anyone know how much steel in total should I anticipate if have pre purchased the Hizen and finish all the directives? Is it 22x200=4400 or 26x200=5200?
  9. To all Greek and Cypriot players out there, wherever they are - do not let history fade away. From Wikipedia. Ohi Day or Oxi Day (Greek: Επέτειος του Όχι, Epéteios tou Óchi [eˈpetios tu ˈoçi]; "Anniversary of the No") is celebrated throughout Greece, Cyprus and the Greek communities around the world on 28 October each year. Ohi Day commemorates the rejection by Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas of the ultimatum made by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini on 28 October 1940, the Hellenic counterattack against the invading Italian forces at the mountains of Pindus during the Greco-Italian War, and the Greek Resistance during the Axis occupation. This ultimatum, which was presented to Metaxas by the Italian ambassador to Greece, Emanuele Grazzi, shortly after 03:00 am on 28 October 1940, who had just come from a party in the Italian embassy in Athens, demanded Greece allow Axis forces to enter Greek territory and occupy certain unspecified "strategic locations" or otherwise face war. It was allegedly answered with a single laconic word: όχι (No!). However, his actual reply was, “Alors, c’est la guerre!” (Then it is war!).[1][2] In response to Metaxas's refusal, Italian troops stationed in Albania, then an Italian protectorate, attacked the Greek border at 05:30 am—the beginning of Greece's participation in World War II (see Greco-Italian War and the Battle of Greece). On the morning of 28 October, the Greek population took to the streets, irrespective of political affiliation, shouting 'ohi'. From 1942, it was celebrated as Ohi Day, first mostly among the members of the resistance and after the war by all the Greeks.

    Champagne still available?

    Any ideas why she was withdrawn so fast? I know that "withdrawn" & fast and a French ship in the same sentence is like asking for it 😜 Fire away!

    Champagne still available?

    Hey, guys! I am away from home, on vacations, and have no access to the game. I checked the premium store for her but could not find her. Is she available through the armory? Thanks a lot.

    Naval Legends: Georgios Averof

    And do not forget that because of this ship and Kountouriotis the Aegean Sea is Greek today. No other single warship and its crew In the world has contributed so much to a country and its People. I remember being in the Salamis naval station, early 2000, where doing some paper work, when all of a sudden the Comms blarred "attention on the starboard side". I get up go out and see the whole moored fleet standing in attention and all warship's sirens going off. Wtf i said a petty officer taps me on the back and shows me with his finger the straits towards Elfesis. A grey warship towed by two tugs was silently going through the channel. I immediately recognised the silhuette of "Barbagiorgos" (Georgios Averof) and stood still. It was a moment that I will never forget . The ship was on its return leg from a refit at Elefsina's ship yards back to Faliron. It was a sight to see!

    Poll: Does Odin need a buff?

    I concur that uptiered is a struggle to either damage enemy ships or even survive. CVs are a definite problem with the low hp. A couple of passes by enemy planes and you are effectively out of the match. If you check her survivability stats for EU, you will notice that she has the worst figure (30,6%) among all tier VIII BBs (Except Tirp B 29.4%). https://proships.ru/stat/eu/s/99999- That says something.

    Asymmetric Battles?

    You cannot take it out of my mind that this is implemented for the introduction of subs. This part below is pointing to that direction... "The usual class symmetry between teams is also not mandatory". Probably, 3-4 subs Vs 7-8 DDs trying to sink a convoy or something. A mixed mode of PvP & PvE. It could be interesting, depending on how it will be implemented.
