  1. A new video shows U.S. Marines training in Norway learning how to 'drift' their tanks. http://wapo.st/1LvVZsz

  3. I was in a battle in my Furutaka and fired a round of torpedoes when suddenly a teammate goes steaming by in the opposite direction not 30ft away and all I have time to think is "Oh Carp" when all of my torps go straight into the side of him and ... vanish? They did not appear on the other side of him so all I can figure is the warheads had not armed yet and so they must have impacted on his hull and were destroyed. A quick search on the wiki confirms there is an arming time but does not say how long it is. All I can say is that it's a little longer than the blink of an eye. Anyway, cool that they implemented that. This time it saved my bacon. Thank you WG.
  4. You know ... I can't remember the last time I got TK'd by torps from my own team. Maybe that's because I'm playing predominantly in the middle tiers.
  5. Conclusion so far ... not that bad, not that bad at all.
  6. Ugh. Aslains v0.8.0 does not get rid of these annoying messages, in fact most of the decent mods had to be removed in 0.8.0. Will wait for next update.
  7. I'm sure Aslain's will have this soon, but until then here are instructions how to remove those sounds from the game. http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/51531-0501disable-the-f-key-voices/page__pid__1270126#entry1270126
  8. Well it appears Pelfaid needs to get his windshield repaired.
  9. I have a suggestion but you're not going to like it. My suggestion is based on this quote from Sun Tzu 知彼知己,百戰不殆;不知彼而知己,一勝一負;不知彼,不知己,每戰必殆 It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.So ... the suggestion is to know your enemy, in this case arty. And the best way to know arty is to play arty. You need to play more arty on more maps. Then you'd know where arty usually sets up and which spots on the map arty can and cannot hit, then you may have realized that sitting still behind that rock was not a safe spot as some arty can hit that spot from where they spawn in the south-west corner. Suggestion #2, get a Sound Alert sound mod that includes a count-down timer (I've used "Metal Gear with extra sound at 10 sec" or "OMC #2 sound (12sec duration)") [both available in Aslain's modpack]. These mods will make a sound after you should have disappeared so you have some indication of how long you shouldn't be sitting still after being spotted. Suggestion #3, don't swear in chat. YMMV
  10. I've been having a blast with the Kuma and have finally elited it and unlocked the Furutaka (furry taco). However I've heard bad things about the Furutaka and an reluctant to sell the Kuma. Is the Furutaka as terrible as I've heard? Have they buffed it recently? Is there a trick to playing it?
  11. I think earn a lot less XP (and silver) in the Co-op Battles.

    Why a code for an anniversary ship? Why not just drop it into our port? ugh (needless to say I missed it too, darn job)
