Well, I figured Id be the one to make this!

Couple..."exciting" developments in the past week. Were getting submarines, albeit in a less ham fisted way than the carrier rework, as well as the USS California (Hell Yeah), Marceau, Puerto Rico, and Poltava.

Frankly im getting sick of these high tier premiums but I cant say no to my beloved California.

What do yall think about these new ships and updates coming?

Also, if you are looking to join a division, i am a recruiter for mine, its not a affiliated with any boards but is active and a chill group of guys, and one lady. Only rule is have a mic, be a cool dude who can shrug off a bad game, and dont be inactive for more than 30 days. shoot me a PM for more info!

I still can't believe they actually did it. I haven't played on a regular basis since eight or nine months after the game came out, but I recall from literally day one people asking for subs... but how the hell was/is not going to be completely stupid? It might force me to reinstall.

I've long felt like the game really needed to go backwards, not forwards anyway, the style of combat the game encourages would be a better fit for ships from 1870-1905 then WW2 types. The problem with the carriers (which almost stopped existing on North American servers early on) and the rework is just an aspect of that, the game style is just not really meant for it.

Sigh... I still love the original original US Cleveland. Before any nerfs. Want to sink two enemy battleships with it? Okay just keep shooting.

So just saw this thread, and wanted to say I have a clan [VLCTY] and would welcome new members. I've been away from the game for a bit, due to dissatisfaction with the carrier rework, but with subs coming soon have decided to get back into it.

Also, the have the Yuudachi back on sale, and I have a little cash to splurge with, so I'll be buying her post haste. The Poi Must Flow!

I think Colbert and Smolensk and too a lesser extent, Friesland, are the worst things done in a long while to the game. Like the previous HE spammers came with flaws. But holy fuck those two ships can control an entire flank solo just because they can shoot at long distance with virtual impunity.

I’ve played games in a monarch where a light cruiser sat outside my gun range, controlled the engagement and just trolled me until I died. At least Wooster is slow, has no torpedos or smoke.

Just frustrating as hell.

Well, today was has been a very good day for me.

Using the event discount and coupons I was able to purchase Prinz Eugen, Mutsu, and West Virginia 1941 from the Prem shop with the doubloons I had saved up.

Then, to round it out, I finally unlocked the Akizuki. Time to Feed The Duck.

So, I just started playing the game fairly recently and desire to bitch about the Omaha. That I'm going to have to grind that piece of crap for two different cruisers infuriates me. It's like driving a citadel with a toothpick for a bow. I have to hide like a chicken behind BBs or get wiped out immediately. I feel insulted that my torpedos are functionally ornaments 85% of the time.

I loved my Omaha, but then again I'm a weird person who loves my Atlanta and in WoT still have a forbidden romance with my TOG.

Omaha is an ambush cruiser, you need to use islands and team mates to distract enemies while getting into position, then you can unleash 6" HE hell on them. Do everything you can to maximize your fire chance even with IFHE. Omaha is great training for both US Cruiser lines, you can't stand in the open, you need to be a sneaky bastard to use their advantages (since this is a Wargaming product, USN ships generally suck in many ways, get used to it early or switch to another line)

I'm already invested across the board into the good ol' US of A cause Merica, so I'm here to stay. And yes, I've learned to be a little coward and keep hidden, but the Omaha's bigger than usual outline makes it too easy to spot. I've had certain battleships out spot me.

*shrugs*

I'm getting better, but I'm still frustrated that this is the fork cruiser.
