  1. In the game settings. I think it was under Controls and look for Collision avoidance system. You can turn it off completely or have it only work when you are zoomed in. I prefer to have it fully off.

    So that would be a Grind_to_the_Max then?

    FK cv and those aboanimatons half CV

    Agree. They are poor as a BB and poor as a CV. The MM sees them as a BB, but they won't be played as a normal BB by the players using them. Same goes for Tone and its role as a cruiser. Personally I feel there should be special MM rules for these hybrid ships. Also is bad for ops. In Aegis been more than a few times now that our only 2-3 BBs are all Ise. Guess which ships you 100% cannot count on to be a BB for the entire op? Yep the Ise's. Sailing out of position the find cover to launch planes that will do far less damage than your guns could be doing is apparently extremely useful to getting a 5* win. TLDR, it isn't.

    An interesting thing happened today.......

    There are several maps now that have areas that you previously were 100% able to sail past, in any ship, that now have underwater obstacles. Where that Yamato is was an area of water you could sail past with no problems but now WG in their wisdom have changed the underwater terrain to ground ships. These have been added as part of modelling of the underwater terrain to prepare for the arrival of subs. Forget which map but there is even a rock in open water that will stop your ship dead in its tracks. I have hit it more than once and it has prevented me from going forward or back as it basically lifted my ship out of the water like a dry dock. Was the end of my game there as i could not move at all. Flamu did a vid on the issue. Hopefully it gets fixed at some point as it is very annoying. Gotta have that underwater world looking great for subs that now are nerfed in their ability to dive and won't be spending much time underwater. Extremely useful and time well spent WG.

    Nothing wrong with the topic, even if the road has been well traveled in the past. The way that it is approached however speaks volumes.

    An antisocial suggestion

    But wouldn't ship B being removed from the game just be a lot easier for me personally? It would save me from needing to think of other players in this multiplayer game and would remove the need for me to have any introspective analysis of my own game play or ship builds. I mean I know that I'm probably not the greatest player and my stats definitely reflect this. I also have never played even one single game in ship B, but regardless I just would prefer to get ship B removed from the game instead of learning anything about them or the game play involved at all. Thanks and please sign my petition.

    Hate to be the voice of Captain sensible but how is you deciding which of the arcade and dumb down real life mechanics are "physics defying acts of impossibility" any different to WG deciding the same when they implemented them? There is a list of things as long as both of my arms that are physics defying but you obviously only choose the ones you don't like to pick on. That is not a very balanced criticism. This is not a naval simulator and the reality is that in order to make certain "based on real life" things work, compromises need to be made to make them fit with game play. I would be lying if I said that every single game mechanic is something I completely agree with, but it is what it is, to use a well worn phrase. Also what about all the players who have played CV for a long time and enjoy CV game play, even after the rework? What about those that have bought Premium CVs? Or ground out entire lines to get a T10 CV? Are you volunteering to refund them their money and time? Or because they are playing a class of ship you do not approve of their enjoyment is a very low concern compared to your own. Obviously you are only thinking of yourself here. Your own personal enjoyment of this multiplayer game is what counts right?
  10. You forgot about the all important clenched fist and harshly spoken words.

    What was your bid for Coals?

    Ok. So because I like many others have been playing a long time and have more credits than I know what to do with and wanted to be able to use them for a useful purpose to get some coal, that makes me and these other players idiots? I appreciate the kind words. I bid 60 Mill. Did not win. Could have gone much higher as it is of little consequence if i log into game tomorrow with 400 Mill or 340 Mill credits. Would have been nice to get the coal but there are not any ships I am interested in at the moment anyway. I don't agree with hoarding coal when others who could make use of it now can win it instead of me.

    Friesland Captain Problem

    Yeah the complete radio silence really feels like WG themselves were not going to give any compensation, but now are scrambling to decide what to do only after players have raised the issue. Why else would it take so long to address such a simple and obvious issue? To be fair on the NA server someone asking this same question has been told that there will be an announcement soon. However the announcement being delayed and coming so close to the release of the Dutch cruisers and Friesland getting moved does not sit well with me. Without players asking would we have even got any consideration or a much belated announcement at all? Why can't WG know what they are doing BEFORE they announce something? Don't announce the new Dutch line and the move of Friesland until AFTER you Know what you are doing with Friesland's captain. When Dutch line was announced along with Friesland moving, all the info regarding her captain should have been all there available at the same time. Not announce the new nation and Friesland moving and then say nothing and decide what to do with her captain later. WG once again is their own worst enemy. WG and communication......... The longer this gets delayed I cannot help but feel it will be another moment for owners of the affected ship to bend over and grab your ankles.

    What is this thing on a Kagero?

    The paravanes will follow behind the bow of the towing ship and the chains are quite long so that a moored mine that has its mooring cable snagged by the chain will be pulled away from the towing ship and not towards it.When the mines cable enters the cable cutter on the paravane the mine will float to the surface where it can be shot and destroyed from a safe distance. Some paravanes had explosives and would destroy the mine when it impacted the paravane. You would still run the risk of setting off mines that your ship ran directly into with its bow however. It was not a 100% foolproof safety against mines altogether. Usually the ships towing paravanes had a very shallow draught and were less likely to set off moored mines that were anchored at a deeper depth to target larger ships.

    Battle of the Beasts progress...

    It does clearly say that both the personal bar and the team bar must reach the commander reward to get it. I was at work until late last night, but others in my clan who were team welthund said that the team reached it and that they got the reward. While others said they never received it. Whole thing seems like a big mess.
