  1. [RNSF] – Royal Navy Surface Fleet is looking for more captains to enlist into our ranks. We are primarily a clan of people from the UK, but we do have the odd person from other countries. We are all mature players, with families, jobs and a real life (some more than others!) so we see ourselves as a “real life first”-clan. We are looking to build a community with our players to make the salty seas a more pleasant experience, so being active and social on our Twitch server, which functions as our voice comms and forum, is a must. We have players who are not able to speak for various reasons (Having noisy children in the background, being a mute and so on,) but they are still active in chat; So if you have a reason for not being able to or are simply too shy, while we highly encourage you to speak and hope to hear your lovely voice soon, it is not a requirement, as long as you are honest of the reasoning. However, we have some requirements: - Be 26 years of age (exceptions can be made if you exhibit maturity.) - Speak English fluently. - Have at least 1500 battles played, a tier 8 non-premium ship, but preferably a tier 10; or is undergo boot camp and help out in the community. - Banter is the glue that holds us together, so not being thin-skinned is a requirement. - While we respect your “outside the game”-life and we will not force anyone to do anything they can’t commit to, the community is important to us, so suddenly vanishing without notice is a no-go and will get you the boot. Have an interest in Clan Battles i.e have or on the way to a tier X ship - Divisions are common place, regardless of skill level. If you have trouble dealing with your division members bad decisions and have a tendency to lash out against it, this clan is not for you. If you like what you see, please message us here on the forums, in-game or look for [RNSF] in the clan finder.
  2. Ahoy there! I have been playing with a family member on and off for a while, but recently we have really been enjoying the game and are considering finding a casual, chilled out clan to do Operations and random matches with, possibly more once we have improved and tiered up. We have several ships, but our max tier is 7 at the moment, with several 5s and 6s we are also working on. Just looking for a friendly UK based group for drunken laughs. We tend to play most evenings at the moment for a couple of hours, usually around 7-9pm GMT. Good hunting. Brog

  4. RNSF (Royal Navy Surface Fleet) We now have the capacity for new members!!! (After culling in-active members) We are a Uk based, WOWS clan made up of United Kingdom players & expats (GMT+/-1 time zone is a must) who are shall we say more senior in years. We have assembled a clan of like-minded mature members, who are committed to having a good time, who do not need micromanaging.

We have a good mix, some play for fun others can get serious we play tiers 4 to 10 with a mix of classes but expect players to rotate types as requested We are looking for players who don't take themselves too seriously, who have a good tier spread of ships and can give as good as they get.

  8. Hallo Community, Merkwürdigerweise kann ich die Briten BB´s, (Tier 3-5) die ich durch die Missionen erhalten habe, (Bellerophon, Orion und Iron Duke) nicht verkaufen. Es kommt immer die gleiche Fehlermeldung....siehe Bild. Bin ich der einzige mit dem Problem? Andere Schiffe kann ich aber verkaufen.... selbst die anderen Briten Schiffe, nur die BB´s gehen nicht.... hat jemand vlt. eine Erklärung dafür? Bitte nicht hauen, wenn es was offensichtliches ist, hab einem im Tee!
  9. UK BB Mission Gifts - Can not sell

    Hello, When trying to sell any of the gifted UK BBs Tier III, IV and V, I am greeted with a transaction error message. Are they not meant to be sold? Anyone else having this same issue? Kind regards, Distant
  10. I've been playing the Belfast a lot lately, great ship, just unlocked my fourth skill tier and bought the Inertia Fuse perk. My question is, when and where should I use HE? I've been testing out both AP and HE shells on targets and I'm not entirely sure which is better and for what situation. On the one hand, AP shells should do more damage, if they are able to penetrate, generally speaking that's either up close or from plunging fire (is there a useful chart to show the distances you need to be over/under in order not to bounce stuff?). Not to mention citadel hits which are always nice to get. However with the penetrating HE shells (plus the Demo Expert in combo) while I may not penetrate, I am nearly always causing a good amount of damage, plus killing off modules and sometimes causing a fire which is equally good. Then there's the question of what I should be targeting (battleships I generally spam HE at, but I've also gotten good damage when I get plunging fire on them with AP, would HE be more consistent though?) I'm going to have a look for a damage indicator mod to see what differences there are myself. However given what I've said above, plus the general capabilities of the Belfast's AP and firing arcs, what would you advise should be my go-to ammunition for each ship, and at what range? Thanks.
  11. Looking for UK clan

    Have been clan member of many WOT clans, even 2IC in a couple, been playing WOWS for about 3+ years now, only random's. I must get into a clan before I break another keyboard with these random idiot players (not all), but DD's ***** anyway, send me a message if you think I would be suitable for your clan. Age : 60, but many don't believe me on TS. Good sense of humour Even though at times they can drive you mad, I firmly believe that all clans should have some younger 'geek' type players, if only to give us older guys something to moan about. Thanks for reading. Dab
  12. Scotsman looking for a Clan

    Hi, I'm looking for a casual Clan to team up with good guys for some Divisions. Due to having young kids I'm only sporadically on playing, basically any free hour here and there I can grab, so couldn't commit to any regular arrangements. Live in Scotland so English is my native tongue, happy to team up with EU buddies. Thanks
  13. [SKIN] Cruceros de la Royal Navy.

    Desde que me enteré del recopilatorio de skins de Edwaryth, siempre estoy instalándolo cada vez que el cliente tiene un parche. Y no es que juegue mucho con los cruceros de la Royal Navy, pero la verdad es que me deprime el pasar de un barco con skin americano, ruso o del imperio Nipón a mi pobre Danae y que esté desnuda. La verdad, uno nunca valora el verdadero trabajo que hacen los Modder hasta que uno lo prueba por sí mismo, ya desde la búsqueda de información hasta la recopilación necesaria de herramientas y el complejo trabajo de las descompresiones de los archivos del juego y su edición. Por eso mientras los más veteranos van terminando las ramas más antiguas del juego, voy a intentar de dar apoyo a este tipo de contribuciones y crear las skin históricas de la Royal Navy. Toda la información que me encontraba sobre cómo se hacía todo esto, desde links a los programas como a tutoriales, estaban rotos u obsoletos y me llevaron todo el día de ayer el poder buscarlos para comenzar a trabajar, pero eso es agua pasada. No sé lo que me llevará cada skin ni todo lo preciso que pueda ser con ellas, pero cualquier comentario ayuda, desde el código HEX del color histórico del barco (ya que las fotos son en blanco y negro), a cualquier detalle que crean que debería de mejorarse, como la cubierta de madera, color de cañones, lo que sea. Terminadas: La skin con el patrón de camuflaje es más el ORP Conrad polaco que el HMS Danae por eso me quedo con esta. Nuevo Proyecto:
  14. Sneak peek at the new ships upcoming! More incoming! Stay tuned!
  15. Should the RN be next?

    Hi, I know this topic has been discussed before but that was quite a long time ago and tbh I was more interested in the poll than anything else, so a new thread it had to be. I'll be upfront here and say I am from the UK and like many who live in this country am rightly proud of our maritime history, so I obviously have a vested national interest in seeing the Royal Navy appearing in WoWs as something more than a single tier 6 Premium BB. However I also did not have an issue with this game starting out with the USN ans IJN, after all a large portion of this games ships are from the WWII era and the biggest naval engagements of that time were between the US and Japanese fleets, so it made sense that those 2 navies feature first. I did feel that the decision to bring the Russian and German navies in next was a purely commercial one was a somewhat disheartening one as it seemed the accountants at WG were calling the shots not the creative teams, since honestly there were far more diverse and historically relevant navies in the world than the Russian one for the time period of this game (France and Italy as well as the RN all spring to mind). But I took solace in the fact that surely after the RU and German trees the RN would be next. Then came the news on the new Pan-Asian premiums (with talk of a full tech-tree) and it got me worried, are WG planning to do the same again, give in to the accountants and produce another tech tree just to try and sell the game to a specific region before implementing the RN tree. While it can be argued that it makes commercial sense to try and pander to presumed national prejudices of certain regions (like the idea the RU players will only play a game that features RU ships), from a historical point of view it makes no sense at all. For the time period that this game covers (the first half of the 20th Century) the RN was the largest and most powerful navy in the world, even by the end of WWII when that position had been taken by the US it was still a force to be reckoned with (a bit sad when you look at what it is today), so a Naval Warfare game of this period that doesn't properly represent the RN is a bit of contradiction in terms. Now before you all start pointing out that I am criticising WG for pandering to national interests when I am clearly affected by such a national interest myself being British, I'd like to point out (as already mentioned) I had no issues with the USN and IJN coming first, neither do I have any issue with the German Navy being next, and if I am really honest I wouldn't bat an eyelid at the French or Italian navies as those navies all played an major historical role in the time period the game covers. But surely a navy of the size and historical importance of the RN deserve more than 1 tier 6 BB by now, you can't tell me it is hard for them to have put either a Cruiser or Battleship line together by now. I decided to put 4 questions (instead of 2) as to try and differentiate between what players from inside and outside the UK to try an eliminate as much as possible any nationalistic bias (or at least put it on display more openly).
  16. Welcome everyone, Green here bringing you my second forum of the series on the UK Royal Navy. Today we are going to have an in-depth look at the UK class 23 frigates. The Type 23 class is the largest class of frigate constructed for the Royal Navy since the 26 ships of the leander class. Like the leanders they type 23 provides the back bone of the Royal Navy's anti sub frigate force, and with any luck should continue to do so for many more years. The ships where designed to complete that role in the rough waters of the North Atlantic using their towed array sonar. The Type 23 where the first stealthy ships to enter service in the Royal Navy with hull angled off the vertical to reduce a radar signature. After the Falklands war Harpoon anti-ship missiles and a 144 mm gun where added to give the design a better punch. The ships will also receive the new powerful towed sonar 2031Z which equips the ten of the class. This sonar will allow the ships to find much quieter modern submarines that may operate in inshore waters in the future. Further studies are in hand to find ways to extend the lives of these large and capable vessels and further enhancing their military capabilities.

  17. Even'n everyone. FiddlersGreen bringing you my very first topic post here. I hope not to disappoint. Today I would like to tell you a little more about the River class patrol vessel, now this ship is currently in service in two navy's around the world, The UK's Royal Navy and the Royal Thai Navy. A class of five offshore vessels these ships where built for the Royal Navy in order to replace the ageing class of seven Island class.These ships are primarily used for fisheries protection. Class overview Name: River class Builders: Vosper Thornycroft (now BAE Systems Surface Ships) Operators: Royal Navy Royal Thai Navy Preceded by: Castle class Subclasses: HMS Clyde, HTMS Krabi In commission: June 2003 Completed: 5 Active: 5 General characteristics Type: Patrol vessel Displacement: 1,677 tonnes Length: 79.5 metres Beam: 13.6 metres Draught: 3.8 metres Installed power: 4,125 kW (5,532 hp) at 1,000 rpm Propulsion: 2 × Ruston 12RK 270 diesel engines Speed: 20 kn (37 km/h) Range: 7,800 nautical miles (14,400 km) at 12 knots (22 km/h) Boats & landing craft carried: 2 × rigid inflatable boats Complement: 30, accommodation for 20 more Armament: 1 × 20 mm gun 2 × general purpose machine guns These ship are larger than the Island class that came before them, this allows them the possibility to be suited to a certain role, For example this role could be; Fire fighting. Disaster relief. Anti-pollution efforts.
