    TV- TX Ships

    Yeah I thought so too, but the rewards at that tier are so small, you'd have to be mad to persist. From memory there was no announcement- it just changed. Sides, it's ultimately made no difference, there's plenty of sealclubbers still playing down there.

    TV- TX Ships

    With any events, collections or missions etc, it is T5- T10 only that are able to participate. It used to be T4- T10 once upon a time. Any idea why it changed? I've been helping a couple of new players learn the game at T4 and when doing so I can't complete any of the missions.

    Premium Ships you'd like to see in-game

    I'll waste no time in nailing my colours to the mast; HMNZS Achillies please HMS Agincourt HMS Lion (BC) R Class BB USS Utah Another Konig class at T5 Any low Tier Premium. It was such a revolutionary era of shipbuilding- the choices are ample.

    Is Duca d'Aosta a good cruiser?

    That's right, don't race to T10 and play that all the time. You'll go broke. The best of this game lies between T4-7. (I'd include T8 if it wasn't up-tiered all the time).

    Is Duca d'Aosta a good cruiser?

    Absolutely nothing. I got this ship in a Christmas container and ended up using it for some French event. It is a really good ship. Aside from the obvious smacking you'll get from being caught broadside it's a really good mid tier choice. The shells have good trajectory & speed but the speed drops off massively at longer range targets which you have to adapt to. I suck at mid tier cruising, but this went a long way to helping me get better. With any cruiser, you're going to be tossing up between concealment & HE penetration until your captain has enough points. Survival or aggression. What's more important to you? But De Grasse is a good choice.

    Be sure to use the rudder shift upgrade, makes the Warspite a very tight turning BB. I absolutely adore the Warspite. It is an incredibly well balanced BB in terms of speed, firepower & armour. The Gallant however...

    I don't like this ship. I feel too vulnerable, too large, turrets too slow, reload too long and you explode every time a BB looks at you. Was pathetically bad when first using it (thankfully it was a gift and I didn't pay for it), but during the recent Indy event, I took it out again hoping for better results and just outright sucked. It's now in mothballs.

    WG's "returning player incentive" discussion

    This is me. I try to complete everything but it's getting harder and harder to. As for the pin up video- I was indifferent. I like them doing new things, but that little video they released when the British BB's came out was way better in every way.

    Nothing to see? Guess you don't use the "Ocean" port then?

    Don't know what to make of this

    Yeah thanks will do. I initially thought bot based on the random number name, but wasn't sure. Are there trends in the amount of games they play since joining? This one had only 60 odd games in 3 weeks. Plus do bots sail premiums?

    Don't know what to make of this

    Had a game last night (which we lost) where we had an allied Tirpitz on our team (Tier 6-8 game) He lasted about 6 minutes. He ended up getting focused fired and that was that. With about 1000hp left his final desperate act was to torpedo me who was about 1.5km away from him. Please keep in mind he was facing the reds and had absolutely no reason to dump his torps behind him.. My Warspite ate 2 fish and was on the back foot for the rest of the game. He was the lowest scorer and his name was just a whole lot of random numbers. Curious, I looked him up and after joining a couple of weeks ago had played about 60 games -mostly T1 & 3 and had clearly just got a brand new Tirpitz. Whilst mildly annoyed at his attempt to team kill me, I kind of want to offer to div up and help him out, but am I wasting my time? Is this bot behavior or just someone who has more money than sense?

    Yes, this event had quite the ripple effect huh?

    Yeah that's true, a user friendly replay would be great! All of these ideas are really good!
