Greetings fellow tan-...kers... uh... captains!

 

Let's start the first user made thread with just a general thread to discuss... whatever, since there is no Offtopic area yet. :P

 

Which ship class will be your starting choice?

Personally I'll start with several as once with the focus on either DDs or BBs.

DDs will prolly be best to troll around with it's speed and maneuverability... and torpedoes...

 

Anyway Panz-... Kriegsschiff, vor!

On the plus side we can say:

Im gonna focus on German battlecruisers first, probably stop with the WWII models though,

 

After that, will probably get into American and Japanese BB lines, unless something really interesting turns up.

I don't think germans will make it into the game prior to mid obt.

 

Well, it depends on how fast the devs are, but adding a third nation usually takes a while.

Well, going by how long it has been since the Alpha of WoWS started I'll take a wild guess and say it's atleast another 6 months before early cbt.

Then add another 6 months for good measure and unforeseeable consequences (Technical issues, psychological issues, natural disasters, SerB)

 

Until I get any kind of invite I'll just do what I do best and spam thy forums~

The tendency to name ships after geography is kinda irritating. However, the Brits irritate me more because theyre so hit and miss. Classes (esp destroyers) are generally named in an alphabetic batch, so you get things like the "V" class of destroyers with the names like Valhalla, Valkyrie, Valorous and err... Vampire.

 

Seriously Admiralty? Vampire? Im sure there were plenty of better names beginning with V available. and thats not even the entire list of rather strange names for that class (over 20 laid down)

Nevermind the typical inability of japanese artists to write foreign words correctly:

guess the cruiser tech tree line will same like medium tank. Go through cruiser line, choose the light cruiser path, yeah I prefer mobility than armour. And quick rush grinding to Supaah Kitakami-sama /o/. The bad news is.... Rumour said the OP torpedo capacity that possessed by her should placed around tier viii or ix. :(

Japanese light cruisers and destroyers~

From memory their overall design motto was something like: "ALL THE TORPEDOES!!!"

For me I'll start as CV, BB, & CA.

I had this thinking for CV, you'll start as Seaplane Tender, wherein you launch your float planes at first...... and work your way up to CVL and to CV.

 

Well talk about the country's timeline of  growing naval force.

I don't think alpha will run that long here as it has been going for a good 6mths on the other servers. i'll put the 'rumour' at later Oct finish, Nov CBT :ohmy:

So you'll be the Carves of the Seven Seas, hunting down your enemies from afar? :glasses:

I've already included the 6 months from the other servers in that estimate though.

I'd rather have Wargaming take it slow, we can clearly see what happens when you rush things in the current example War Thunder Ground Forces.

The forum seems to have some weird restrictions active at the moment.

New threads are automatically archived and then (I guess) re-opened by admins.
