    Rock, Caliber, Shells - A World of Warships group

    Hey guys and gals!

    Had a cursory search on the forums to see if a group is around. I have not found anything so far.

    Is there anyone else playing this at the moment? It just went into Open Beta. So far I'm really enjoying it. Got my Tier IV IJN DD, Tier IV USN BB which is my favourite at the moment and a Tier III USN CV. The CV is bleh. Gonna continue going down IJN cruiser line and take their BBs as well as the USN BB line.

    Feel free to hit me up in game. I'm on the EU server under the name of Meatntwo.

    Indeed. I should have written the full words instead. In either case:

    BB - Battleboat...errr ship
    CV - Carrier
    DD - Destroyer
    IJN - Imperial Japanese Navy
    USN - US Navy

    Feel free to ask questions about the game!

    Played some of warships and liked it but its finding time for it among other games. Remember on the mumble server if you register you can create channels, create a channel for the game your playing and people bored might pop in and say hello. I don't think we got a wargaming.net clan, it does cost RL money to make one but if you get enough people I think we could create one for the team. Like I said create a channel on mumble reguarly and people might pop-in I know some people on my steam friends list play it as well.

    Yep, I play this. Currently on Tier IV for IJN CL & BB, working towards my Tier V BB mainly (Kongo!) and accessing the CV line. Sadly the IJN Tier IV BB is awful.

    EDIT: Also created a "World of" channel in Mumble.

    Bought a South Carolina BB a few days back though I've yet to play it (meaning I still don't know if I hate BB's or not), done a fair few fights in the St. Louis and maybe 1 match in the IJN starter. It's a fun game, but the players I've been running into provide a good argument in favour of exterminating the human species. I was expecting the player base to be scum, this being a WG product and all, but was still taken aback by the idiocy, incompetence and malice a lot of them display (I've taken to pre-emptively pointing my guns at all friendly destroyers, just in case).

    Just unlocked the first IJN carrier, the Hosho. Totally different game with carriers!

    Wooo! Bodge! Bodge! Bodge!

    The Murmansk premium is a pretty sweet ship as well. I'm kind of working out the Hosho, but IJN fighters are awful :(

    ergh pubbies...

    Just had a frustrating game. I was in the New Mexico. Took the left flank. Saw friendlies coming with me so I thought no problem. On the way managed to halfway damage a Kongo. Got to the flank and saw 2 enemy BBs including the earlier Kongo. Got myself angled nicely towards them and made all their shots bounce. Sunk the Kongo and severely damaged another BB. I look back and see my friendlies just floating about out of range and not firing. I ended up tanking so much damage a cruiser had to come by and sink me with torpedos after about 10 minutes of eating shells. Hell I even only used 1 repair consumable. If the friendlies actually came with me we would have stomped those BBs and cruisers easy but no.

    Thought I'd vent a bit. :S

    EDIT - 7 games 7 losses in the New Mexico...I'm done.

    I can't be bothered with BBs. I have had some awesome games in cruisers and DDs of late though.

    Yeah welcome to the random internet community of gaming, watch you eat up all the damage and dish out as much as you can take then they float on in making the kill and taking the glory of winning for the team. Best to play their own game or play with friends.
