Yeah I dislike bays, and Mino is really good at drifting into them... Wait...

@Reinhard_of_Avercland your Minotaur is named wrong...

It's named Swiftsure.

Can I just clarify for all those yet to notice this, you may be thinking 'yeah, Swiftsure was previously Minotaur'.

No.

No it wasn't, not the in-game Minotaur at least.

The built Minotaur, later Swiftsure (HMCS Ontario) is a 3x3 152 type ship, think of it like an evolution of Edin/Fiji but without the 4th turret.

The in game Minotaur is a paper ship.

I'm not a historian but I did just spend a large chunk of my year doing Commonwealth theorycrafting and Ontario features prominently.

Well yes I forgot that I should not use full speed when turning, and the ship just drifted into the bay perfectly.. But I was also panic when the flank was collapsing quickly, and the Stalingrad was approaching.

Yes I changed the name by using a mod (a self-made one) because I find it really odd that such a fragile ship is named after a half-bull half-human mythological being. Had Minotaur been used by one of the heavies, it might make more sense.

I know the real Swiftsure was not the same with this ship. But because there is still no sign if WG will add the real Swiftsure into the game, I can use the name. And according to WG's naming standards, it is not too far fetched I suppose. I mean in the WoWs wiki, WG stated the names such as FdG, GK, and Hindenburg were purely speculations.

Spoiler

The ships neither received names nor were official name proposals published. The names, which appear in several publications (Hindenburg, Friedrich der Große, Großdeutschland) are pure speculation. Especially the often mentioned Großdeutschland (= "Greater Germany") is highly unlikely, as Hitler always feared the loss of a vessel with name of Germany (compare the renaming of Deutschland to Lützow). The only hint on the names of the units were given by Hitler himself, who mentioned during documented unofficial talks, that he would propose the names Ulrich von Hutten and Götz von Berlichingen for the ships, as these names are not connected with persons of the third Reich or the country itself, so the loss would not have a significant negative psychological and propaganda effect on the German people.

And I only changed the name of the paper ships, but not all. The minimap still shows Stalingrad, MvR, etc. However the changes only apply on my screen because it's just a personal mod.

Theodore Roosevelt at 15.6 km away. I don't think they actually named a BB after president. I guess it's Montana/Ohio.

And that Hakuryu's player, Zao_Lives_Matter. Does it though?:Smile_trollface:

Oh and you literally got betrayed by the thing you rely on.:Smile_trollface::Smile_trollface:
