  1. Thank you for your post. I do my best, but I completely agree that we should have a native speaker. This is one of the reasons why we're currently recruiting new staff. I understand your criticism of me and I can only admit my limitations. I hope we can solve these issues in the near future. That said, sometimes it's a matter of choosing between acting upon the reports that we get (I use two translators to double-check) or not acting at all. Sometimes I judged it better to act as good as I could. When we have a Chinese moderator (and hopefully a Korean one as well) East chat can be monitored better.
  2. Hello USA Navy, This is not a bug, but a feature. The guns themselves are different, hence they are shown differently in the game. The Italia (top picture) has 4 barrel guns mounted, the Vittorio Veneto shown on the bottom picture has 3 barrel guns. There are also different looks for guns that have the same amount of barrels. I hope this answers your question.
  3. Thanks! Added it to the list.
  4. Some ships have a flightdeck that can launch fighter and bomber planes. By request, I have listed the current crop. Full flightdeck: IJN CA Mogami 1944, tier D (shipyard) and C IJN CL Oyodo, tier D (shipyard) and C IJN CL Agano, tier B IJN BB Atago, tier S IJN BB Ise (1943), tier A SN BB Project 69SE, tier S MN CL De Grasse, tier B MN BB Strasbourg, tier C, B and A RN BB Italia, tier S Small flightdeck (2 fighters, 3 torpedo bombers, 3 dive bombers, 1 squad): IJN CA Asama, tier C IJN SS I54, tier A (shipyard) IJN SS I400, tier B, A and S IJN SS Kai-Kou type, tier B and A MN SS Surcouf, tier S As always, let me know if I've missed some ships. Cheers folks!
  5. Adding ships one by one is perfectly fine! I personally found it more convenient to add multiple ships in one post, but whatever works for you!
  6. New campaign to collect data and screenshots of ships is now posted under general discussion. Please contribute (read the general post first)!

  14. Dear captains, Due to continious requests I am launching a new campaign to collect stats of as many ships as possible. This is a huge undertaking, with many, many possible ships to investigate. I cannot possible do this alone, so I'm asking all of you to help me in this quest. So, here goes. There are seven threads (one for each nation). In every thread I've made a few posts to give the example of what a post should look like. Please expand those threads by adding your own post, and please follow my format. We want to see screenshots of vetted (!) (so no new or mastered ships), accompanied by some useful info. At least include your setup, whether it has aaw or launchers, if launchers whether they can use mines or no, whether there is anything special about the ship (repair, for example, including the amount of repair) and most importantly: start with the name and tier of the ship, in text, above the picture!! Please post ships in battle setup, not harbour assault setup! How to get the pictures underneath the text if you're adding multiple ships in one post? Attach all pictures, save the post, then edit it. Then you can drag and drop the pictures to where you want them. Alternatively, you can leave them all at the bottom of the post. Before posting, use the search function (inbuilt in the forums or use crtl+f or whatever your computer uses) to check if the specific ship has already been posted. No duplicates! Let us bring our knowledge together! These are the threads per nation: US (USA) UK (Britain) IJN (Japan) KM (Germany) SN (Russia) MN (France) RM (Italy) Kind regards, Ibby
  15. There can be several causes as far as I'm aware. First, as Baldrick mentions, if the battle time drops under 60 seconds, capturing the zone is no longer possible (as you need a full minute to capture it). Secondly, on some maps there are turrets (aaw, guns) within the zone. If those are still intact when the capture time initiates, they will count as a ship in the zone. Lastly, bomber planes and air strike/nuke planes also count as capturing ships. I hope this answers your question, if not please let me know. If you're posting from a computer, you should be able to attach screenshots.
