  1. If Johannes is really good, I'm sure he'll be able to piss a lot of captains off.

    New CODE

    Thanks a lot.

    Submarines (Co-op experiences)

    Good point. Then I guess that WG missed the ball once again when it comes to making dynamic play that everyone wanted to see in Randoms. (sigh) I wish they get the RTS CVs back...at least, I can play them. Playing the CVs now is bad for my wrist for some reason.

    Submarines (Co-op experiences)

    If I may add, having played both the Tier VIII and Tier X subs in live (and all six in PTS), is that subs don't exactly have good turning radii especially underwater. And that's where the problem lies with sub to sub battles. If you have to shoot the torps, the other sub must be either directly in front of you or behind you thus positioning is very important. I'm not exactly a fan of the sonar ping/homing torpedo mechanic either as torpedoes do miss once the ping is gone and thus you have to ping the target twice, before firing the torps and after it to be somewhat effective. Speed wise, subs are nearly as fast as battleships of the same tier and yes, Balao is terrifying to play against in the map and exciting to play with. As for dealing with subs as surface ships (even without depth charges), there's always waiting for them to surface due to their dwindling charge especially when spotted regularly then blasting them, ramming them, or torpedoing them (Believe me, I've done all three). You can also be right on top of the sub when it surfaces and it still counts as a ram. All in all, this is probably what WG is looking for to get the BBs and Carriers moving again as being stationary targets (despite being behind an island) make them ideal targets for subs as they did in real life.

    Missouri only available in packages

    Me thinks that WG just made a sort of transition period so that owners of OG Missouri would enjoy thier credit perks before it would become the same as the new Missouri without said perks at some point in time (e.g. January 1, 2022). If they continued the mission on and beyond January 1, 2022 then they need to rename either of the Missouris as it would much like OG Belfast and the new Belfast with the credit perk as its dividing factor.....unless the new Missouri gets the same heal as Iowa does.

    Missouri only available in packages

    Because there is only 142 days before January 1, 2022. In other words, it's only for this year.

    Recommend me a high-tier coal ship

    This would explain why I typed it. - https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/game-updates/update-0107-submarines-in-ranked-battles/
  8. Wait a few weeks (more or less two weeks max) after the patch, it'll come. Also, no flags this time but community tokens are given instead.
  9. It's funny that even in co-op, I get players that do play like that. Even funnier is the one that asks for a smokescreen....and he's playing a DD. 😓

    Detonation or deva strike clarification

    It's more of a random occurance than anything else. I mean, I was surprised that I actually detonated a DD earlier using my cruiser's HE shell. And no, the game doesn't say which shell would detonate the enemy ship, just say that it is detonated.
  11. Sting_Ray_05

    Detonation or deva strike clarification

    It does. Just take a look at the small indicator of how a ship sinks another. If there's a small explosion icon in between, then yes, a detonation/devastating strike just occured. I actually saw it once a Missouri blew my ship out of the water despite having more than half hp remaining.

    Black Friday Mission bug

    Huh?! I thought this thread should be locked by now. It has already served its purpose a long time ago. So, can I ask that it be closed now before it gets necroed?

    0.9.12 most likely so around the end of this year. It was part of the last Public Test.

    MVR needs nerfing

    Actually yes. I mean CVs aren't the only ships that could blap a cruiser, nevermind if its light or heavy, in one shot. For a BB player, it's nothing special but for cruiser mains, that would explain why they would rather hide in smoke or islands and burn BBs to the waterline. Also, by your own logic, Battleships being BBQed by cruisers isn't a problem either. Believe me, there are threads that said "Cruisers OP, please nerf" since their beloved BBS ended up sunk by fire and they couldn't hit the cruisers firing on them because they're too nimble to be even hit.

    Black Friday Mission bug

    Yeah, I mean I'm actually watching a Black Friday Mission PSA video by Sea Lord Mountbatten and I guess it's not just a SEA or even forum topic. Weirdly enough, I didn't even buy a Jean Bart B, but got it from a Black Friday 2020 container.
