    Asian teamwork potential #2

    So you're saying we are all highly inflexible and also prone to rust when exposed to a salt water environment?

    Annoying loud sounds

    Yes I have experienced this also. Suddenly some environmental sounds are waaaay louder than they should be. Also with the planes, all of a sudden it will sound so loud like a squadron has just barely flown over my funnels, but when I check on minimap there are no planes within 10 km of my ship.

    Remove Newport from Scenario Rotation

    I commend your optimism

    Aegis award

    The "Shield" achievement is for having 20 allied ships survive in operations. It can be received even when contributing nothing to the battle as it just counts up from previous scenario battles, as you saw first hand

    collecting allowance tokens,

    Check out this wows news article dated 24/05/2019. Spells everything out very clearly https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/general-news/get_lazo_now/

    Armour angle calculator?

    I use Aslains mod. It has something called the navigator mod which shows the angle off the bow a targeted ship is to me, and also the angle I am to that targeted ship. It is simply enlarging the UI information from the minimap and presenting it in a easier to read and interpret fashion. Helps greatly to angle properly to reduce incoming damage from AP. However its real strength is in showing when you when the angle is too shallow and you must still target superstructure and then as the angle opens up when you can fire AP and have less chance to bounce off bow and armour belt. In example pic below 24 degrees would mean I would not be aiming for the bow yet, unless I am sailing something with improved auto bounce angles for AP shells.

    Ship Armour

    If you just look at ships in each class in the tech tree at each tier, with the armour profiles enabled, it will gave you a good idea. There are some curve balls though, as I'm sure you are aware, like the RN CLs which have much weaker bow and stern plating for their tiers than what is typical

    Friesland poll

    I'm back up to 350k + coal even after buying Moosashi and JB. So it would be nice to have something to use my coal for

    problems connecting , getting kicked ?

    Was that sometime just after midnight? Same thing happened to me. Got kicked mid-game, couldn't log back in and even the WOWS website wouldn't load. Internet fine as everything else was working 100% ok. Maybe an unannounced server reset?

    Outer space = waste of space

    If only the same amount of effort that went into creating Space battles and Halloween game modes could actually be re-directed into other things like oh I don't know, fixing port UI lag, Matchmaker improvements, Proper ship balancing, improved ship auto pilot for better ship/CV control, etc... Maybe I am asking too much of WG, these things I mentioned are of little value to the game and its player base and are not really all that important...……..

    Why so little ship info please fix!

    For comprehensive ship stats go here: http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/World_of_Warships I never buy any prem boats without going to the wows wiki first. WG marketing speak makes any ship sound absolutely amazing even if it is junk. I also have Aslains modpack which is excellent for the extended tech tree alone, but offers so much more.

    I just bounced 6 shells from my musashi

    Wow. Almost 8.5k battles and you don't know even basic shell/armour mechanics? Doesn't matter what ship you are in, if the armour is angled enough and you don't have overmatch calibre guns, then you will bounce. As mentioned above don't aim for main belt when target is angled. Aim for bow or stern as you will have a much better change of overmatching the thinner hull plating.

    Premium ship quests from Air Supply Containers

    WG mentioned upfront that the reward for duplicate ships would be credits for this event. It has been credits instead of doubloons for duplicate ships for other events in the past also. Knowing beforehand what the compensation would be and getting that exact compensation is no grounds to have a whinge. I would like an island in the Maldives instead of what WG told me I would get I had all of them except for Vanguard, which I would have bought eventually anyway. I bought 20 containers and I received the missions for Vanguard, Hood and Duke of York. Vanguard is now in my port for less than the cost of me buying the ship from the prem store. Plus the added bonus of a completed collection, many special signals, some camos and many millions of credits in compensation for the 2 duplicate ships. I knew what I was getting before buying and I got exactly what was stated. Nothing to complain about.

    Russian Balans

    Actually not true. An armour belt is supposed to extend as far forward or aft as the designer wants it to. The all or nothing armour scheme will, as you say, basically only protect the magazines and machinery spaces. Areas that do not contain vital equipment or munitions are left minimally protected to save weight. This is why armour belts are typically found extending to either side of the center of the ship. A ship that has been designed with a more complete overall armour scheme can have the armour belt extending all the way to the bow or stern if they so desire. That being said, even if this is an actual design that WG found and they have modelled it in game, it is pretty ridiculous for a T5 and will seriously raise some eyebrows if it doesn't get some armour nerfs before going onto the live server. Don't forget there is no such thing as Russian bias in WOWS or WOT
