    War on the Sea

    I think that was supposed to be RIGHT rudder.... The war continues. The Big E has been repaired and is back in action. Japanese submarines have dropped considerably....not sure when I encountered the last one. All I have been encountering are small DD groups running the slot to try and...

    Elite Dangerous: Odyssey

    Ok folks! So...Odyssey launches for PC on May 19th. I'd like to know who will be getting it and maybe we can do some things together to learn the new things and make some millions together. As a community, we've been fairly quiet and we need something to bring us together. This is a very...

    War on the Sea

    The Big "E" has been hit. Not too bad, but enough that some holds were open to the sea along with some other minor damage. She came under relentless air assault which depleted the Wildcats providing air cover. Many of the cruisers ran out of 5" AA shells and were left just with 20/40mm guns...

    War on the Sea

    The biggest problem with the game is the "instructions" ... or lack thereof. They could definitely use some more detailed tutorials or guides.

    Naval Action

    Reinstalled this today to see the progress made. Looks like a lot of new features. Anyone interested in re-learning this with me? I've only got a cutter at the moment. PVE server...at least until I learn how to do things again.

    War on the Sea

    I'm continuing to harass any enemy ships I can locate but taking over islands is extremely slow as you only get 1000 troops to land once a week. I haven't found a way to increase this yet and you have to take over multiple islands to get a good base of operations going. I feel like this...

    War on the Sea

    Updates are good so far. They just released a beta update for planes to do automated scouting. I still don't understand the mechanics behind island takeovers. For instance, you have an island and they land X number of troops. You supply a number of reinforcements from another island with...

    War on the Sea

    Thank God for Southby.... I mean scout planes. :) I found the Yamato....and she brought her sistership Musashi with her. Headed straight at the Hornet carrier group. I sent in Avengers with torpedos the first waves which decimated and sunk Yamato. Luckily I had B-17s in the area that...

    War on the Sea: Lessons learned

    Definately not a pro at the game but here are some tips and lessons learned that may help you out in the campaign. As often as you can, send scout planes around the areas of your island. In a submarine encounter where you are the attacker Best results occur if you have more than one sub...

    War on the Sea

    War update: The Japanese have landed troops at Port Moresby, slipping by my submarine screen, as well as Milne Bay and Santa Cruz. I have thwarted repeated Japnaese efforts to reinforce those positions. At least three convoys were completed wiped out after repeated attacks. I have landed...

    War on the Sea

    Yes, as the US torpedoes were rampantly known for. You have to try and make sure the impact will be as close to a 90 degree hit as possible for the best outcomes. Also, the torpedoes run straight out a certain distance before the gyro setting kicks in and turns the torpedo. I have also had...

    War on the Sea

    Refocusing my strategy as I may have landed on Guadalcanal too early. I decided to start building up the base on Rennell Island, south of Guadalcanal. That will lessen the distance my forces and supply ships need to transit to transport necessary troops and supplies. Thet battles have been...

    War on the Sea

    Yes, they’ve done some small patches. I’m still learning things with the campaign mode but so far so good. There are some inaccuracies that I’ve seen so far. Japanese sonar in early war Japanese depth charge depths All merchants are armed…so can’t really conduct surface attacks with submarines...

    War on the Sea

    The campaign continues… Sunk a few Japanese submarines via aircraft off the Enterprise. Also had encounters with a Japanese cruiser force and one of my Gato class submarines. Torpedo attack proved unsuccessful and the cruiser force sailed away rapidly. However, I vectored Dauntless dive...

    War on the Sea

    Second attack coming to Port Moresby. I launched a squadron of Avengers at the Japanese cruiser force but the torpedo attack failed to score hits. (I learned that even though you tell them to attack, they won’t drop unless you tell them to open bay doors first. You’d think that’d be part of...
