    [–] It's Gamescom promo time again... Roflkopt3r 1 points ago in WorldOfWarships

    You can see in the XP that he did about as well as three DDs and a carrier. But T10 is still a valuable top tier slot.

    [–] It's Gamescom promo time again... Roflkopt3r 6 points ago * (lasted edited 2 hours ago) in WorldOfWarships

    So that Conqueror yolorushed and died instantly as a free kill. It was an effective 12 vs 11.

    It sucks for the normal players, and I can't imagine it to be that much fun for the people at Gamescom either. Obviously I won't blame them for trying what was offered, and for not knowing the game as well as the players they are up against who have hundreds of hours of experience. But from WG's side this arrangement sucks.

    I think something like 3 vs 3 amongst Gamescom visitors would give them a much better look at the game, with more time to get accustomed to the controls and mechanics instead of getting virtually instagibbed.

    [–] HELP! What ship to get with the Gamescom special? Roflkopt3r 3 points ago in WorldOfWarships

    Belfast will always be broken OP. Kutuzov is very strong as well. But keep in mind captain training as well, having a premium ship for a nation makes it so much easier to advance the lines because you can always retrain your captain. So think about which lines you plan to play next.

    Ooooh baby this is awesome. So this is how normal servers feel during a special!

    Gonna get Z-46 and Minotaur on a discount :D

    [–] Not the coolest achievement, but I'm proud all the same! Roflkopt3r 2 points ago in WorldOfWarships

    For that I would have to continue playing that 19 pt captain, but I am looking to complete the tech tree first. I only need Minotaur, Z-46, Z-52, and the T9/T10 carriers anymore.

    [–] Not the coolest achievement, but I'm proud all the same! Roflkopt3r 3 points ago in WorldOfWarships

    4300 games in, still no 19 point captain. I just can't stick with one ship for long enough.

    [–] Moskva Tips and Tricks Roflkopt3r 9 points ago * (lasted edited 16 hours ago) in WorldOfWarships

    Moskva has one of the most vulnerable broadsides imagineable. The citadel is gargantuan. If you show broadside, you get deleted as easily as a Minotaur.

    However, when angling or bowtanking she is the most durable cruiser by far. She has the most hitpoints and an awesome 50 mm deck that no BB can overmatch.

    Because of the poor concealment combined with the broadside issue, Mosvka ends up bowtanking a lot. So your playstyle needs to take into account that you might get forced into such a position very easily. You need to choose your pathing in such a way that if enemies begin to focus you, you can angle in a position where you have enough targets available without allowing the enemy to focus fire you too easily. To accomplish this, it is crucial that you play with your team and not let the enemy outnumber you.

    The radar is of course also important to consider. You cannot play a sneaky radar style like Balancefast or Des Moines, but you have great range on it. So look for good positions near caps or popular smoking spots to scare DDs and RN cruisers away, or wreck them if they don't heed the warning. However, Mosvka has a much longer effective range than other cruisers due to the absurd guns, so it's not a drama if you cannot get into effective radar range either.

    As katjeatje said, the best source to get some concrete footage on how to do all of this is on Flamu's channel.

    At that point it's just about personal taste, not power level though. It's not relevant for balance.

    [–] (FLAMU) HMS Iron Duke [WiP] - Power Creep Volume 11 Roflkopt3r 1 points ago in WorldOfWarships

    Fuso only makes 24.5 knots and is still an awesome ship.

    [–] How much lower can we go? Roflkopt3r 12 points ago in ComedyCemetery

    It is, but this is a distasteful perspective on it nonetheless.

    Most of people who are pro choice do not do so lightheartedly. They are aware of the severity of the issue, and that it deserves solemn respect. There is some degree of civil understanding between those pro choicers and pro lifers who can look at the topic beyond superficial ideology.

    And that is exactly why this cartoon is such an abomination. The only people helped by this are the extremist ideologues and ignorants.

    So they give RN BBs that megazao-HE as a bonus, but then just don't make up for it with any downsides. Rather, they make most other things stronger as well.

    Good thinking, WG.

    "Uhr" and "Fang" :p

    But we could combine them, like "Zwerguhrmacherfangspiel" (dwarven watch maker game of catch).

    [–] What is the best way to complete this task? Roflkopt3r 1 points ago in WorldOfWarships

    The only way to win is not to play.

    This mission and some others are just not worth going for. Save them for when you have no other missions open and just hope they get fulfilled randomly on their own.

    [–] [Shitpost] Made a simple counter argument for "CV's encourage passive play" Roflkopt3r 2 points ago in WorldOfWarships

    Force everyone to huddle together in a big blob, be surprised if that never goes anywhere. Dynamic af.

    In German spelling they would be more like "Wotsch" and "Ketsch" or "Kätsch", making the difference clearer. English spelling is especially poor in recording phonetics.

    [–] Limiting things creates scarcity and hence value Roflkopt3r 2 points ago in ThatsHowThingsWork

    I think that's fair enough for shower thoughts though. It's not founded on the idea that only awesome observations can make it in there. Trivial or even stupid things are completely okay.

    Implying that we aren't who we need to be already.

    [–] "Every Where Is Some Where" Roflkopt3r 2 points ago in ThatsHowThingsWork

    a long time ago, actually never, and also now, nothing is nowhere.

    when?

    never.

    makes sense, right?

    like i said, it didn't happen.

    nothing was never anywhere.

    that's why it's been everywhere.

    it's been so everywhere you don't need a where.

    you don't even need a when.

    that's how every it gets.

    forget this.

    i wanna be something.

    go somewhere.

    do something.

    i want things to change.

    i want to invent time and space.

    and i know it's possible because everything is here and it probably already happened.
