No, no Mo for me though a friend is dead keen on getting one.

I think T8 is my peak tier. I have the Bismarck, about to get the North Carolina. Tier 9 and 10, from what Iv'e seen, the gameplay and economy doesn't sound like fun.

I'm really liking the German BB's from Bayern to Bismarck, including Scharnhorst.

I tried to love the IJN ships but they are a little too squishy and the high fire arcs and slow shell speeds (compared to US and German BB's anyway) just don't do it for me.

I won a Budyonny with the Xmas missions and I gotta say it's my favourite cruiser, followed closely by the Admiral Graf Spee.
The Budyonny is a fragile ship but front on it's very tough for its tier. Those rapid firing flat shell arc guns are amazing. I can semi accurately hit ships with multiple shells from 15+k's!

Missouri is still work in progress. Here announcement arrived a few days after I spent most of my free XP. Sitting at 430k at the moment, so I am slowly getting there - papa papa signals and new year cameo help.

What else is new: Leveling ships has gone from work in progress to work done since Kurfürst and Minotaur entered my harbour in January. 11/14 T10 with 85 ships in total currently owned. For the rest: German DDs at T5, leveling slow because they are not really fun. Unfortunately I kind of suck with Aircraft Carriers so they are sitting at T8 and T9 (Shokaku and Essex) and have not been played for quite a while. Maybe sometime...

Nice to here all the progress everyone is doing.

I did get my MO (spent $40ish + the free xp).

I actually love the German DDs. yes its an acquired taste and hard to play but once you adjust to their playstyle they do very well. I just reached the Z23 yesterday and played 4 games in a stock ship and did fairly well (all were wins)

Right now trying to get through the grind. Stuck at tier 3 or 5 ships. Almost past 10 million credits but spent it on modules for HMS Belfast and USS Atlanta. Close to 400 random battles played.

Is it a good game? If it wasn't for the naval ships you adore, is the gameplay worth the imposed grind?  I'm considering WoW again, since War Thunder opted for Torpedo and Patrol boats for its implementation of a naval game.  I get the move, but it looks more like reskinned tanks on water rather than naval action.

zombies are an overused theme.

I would say its is worth it. I thought I had a love for American Battleships.... but for some reason my first tier 10 was a German and second was a German and I think third will be a German DD. Its a fun game BUT you will have some ups and downs in the matchmaking which will probably make you very upset. The one thing this game depends on is team play and that is its downfall. overall I like it... (my 4800 games in 1.5 years proves it)

I'm actually annoyed by the lack of Italian ships.  Even as a premium option, seriously.  Ah well another 10GB before I can even fire it up, back to the wiki's

Dogan
Seriously, they have Mediterranean gameplay, but no Italy.

They plan on adding the Italians later (a cruiser, destroyer, and battleship line with the possibility of a carrier line). Their main lines probably won't be added this year but maybe they'll add the Bolzano or Gorizia as a premium cruiser.

Doganpc have you actually tried warthunder boats?

nope, haven't played their boats yet.  But the way they talk them up and having played their tanks; they seem very similar.  Focusing on the river and coastal boats though seems very limited, Primary and Secondary fire options, limited terrain. I feel like it will be somewhere between the planes and tanks (tanks with no cover essentially).

Dogan
I do like their implementation of secondary weapons though.

Doganpc I am an alpha tester for warthunder boats and it is very fun and fast paced as the biggest guns right now are only 88mm. The boats have armor so you can bounce shots and you also have depth charges to drop under enemy boats to blow them up along with torpedoes. With the maps there is lots of cover and ways to shoot over island. I've shot done a lot of planes with the guns as they are all dual purpose guns.

Don't worry about this. They have brought in one line at a time, constantly expanding. If you want to play them, I would recommend playing others now, to get better at the game for when they do show up!

Oh yeah - I'm dead keen for the Regia Marina to be playable.
Looking forward mostly to the cruisers and battleships.

My love of the RM is probably due to the following:
*underdogs
*camo and candy-stripes
*fine looking ships

the candy stripe camo would be a premium camo, just as they are for the other nations.

Likely. I'm ok with that, if that's the only way to get some candy on my ships. Smile

Duca at Tier 6 tho?  Confused

So... this just happened.  Could've been 7, but I didn't get the last shot in.

Typically my best games are defeats.

very nice. glad they finally are coming out with Italians. though I cant waif for my French! Doganpc nice game. glad to see people are able to get torp hits in the Koingsberg. How did you get the double strike? I always like to here how people get them.

My best double strike was a double double strike. I was playing the Benson and did a full salvo of torps into smoke and got 4 ships sunk. I didn't even know there was 4 ships in it when I did it.
