  1. I am sitting on 800k free xp as well. Unfortunately I don't do well in battleships. As of yet I haven't seen a free xp DD which is what I would really want. I just keep waiting. I have 70 mil credits so I don't need to have a credit farmer yet...

    The killer whale was fun. I solo'd rasputin in it. 156k dmg in just a few seconds. The 40k to earn it was a little tedious though...

    I find them fun but I'm not sure how to implement them in gameplay. Their historical speeds are way to slow. 21 on surface, 9 submerged. Lets say they are all snorkel equipped and can run a 21 knots at periscope depth. I would guess you would have to give them around a 2-3km detection range. Once they are spotted they would essentially be dead. I'm not sure how to escape a DD w/ depth charges at 9 knots submerged. The only thing I could imagine is make them immune to radar but detectable by hydro. DD's without hydro would have to essentially pair up with a cruiser that has it. Unless you would station them even closer to combat than the DD's I don't see them viable. Maybe allow them air at periscope but limit speed to 3/4 vs surface at full.
  4. I have finally accumulated 750k Free XP. I see the: Musashi (Battleship - JP) Kronshtadt (Cruiser - USSR) and at one point Missouri (Battleship - US) I don't tend to play Battleships. Anyone have the Kronshtadt? Though I'm tempted to work for the legandary Yamato someday...
  5. I rarely get a citadel even in operations!
  6. This was a non-premium match on the weekly scenario. I don't think I've gotten 21 citadels this year and on this match the RNG decided my turn was due. I think I'll stop while I'm ahead. --bockie

    New CV Video

    Linky... News Video My thoughts. As shown I am excited to see the changes. I did enjoy CV. I think there will need to be adjustments. It does seem a little OP right now based on the video. Poor DD's. I hope they can find a way to balance DD's (maybe 360 coverage vs 180 coverage?) with this change. --Bockie

    Activity requirement?

    I'm all for activity requirements. That said I've also gone dormant to get kicked out of DHO main once! That being said, I assume there is still a DHO2.

    The Hams Among Us

    I've had my tech license since '03. KC8WTC. My brother and nephew just passed their tech license test and are awaiting call signs. I dug out my hand held dual bander and plugged it in for the first time since the remnants of Hurricane Ike hit us and left us without power for 5 days.

    Heliborne

    It was a quick download. 2GB I want to say. I've been having fun with it playing PvE. I'll probably try a PvP this weekend.

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/433530/Heliborne/ Has anyone seen this? Anyone playing? I'm so tempted to buy... PvE Gameplay looks engaging. PvP looks interesting as well.

    Gran turismo sport

    I pre-ordered from Amazon last night. I haven't bought a console or pc game in a long time. I am justifying it since I should be able to play it with my two oldest kids. Shipping Oct 17, 2017.
