Thats anecdotal evidence, not facts Uhlan. The game has been geared to let players of different fleets, play campaigns or tourney's. Currently, you are going to find if you ran a VAS tourney/campaign. It would be a US/IJ pacific fleet tourney/campaign, or a North Atlantic Tourney/Campaign. Deviate ...

yeah, some of those 8" cruisers with 4 turrets and torpedos (one shot or not) should be raid level. The pensacola would make a better raid level ship then the brooklyn.

As far as play testing goes.... I think we're it

I personally agree with that point. Only a target abeam of you will give a fire control team any advantage. THis is simply because you see more of the ship and can more acurately put your fire into critical areas such as the Magazine.

"...the other Canadian ship"??? You guys had more than one? :wink: I'm sorry, I'll immediately apologise for that. You chaps did have the world's 3rd largest fleet at the end of WW2 by the way, although that was after all of the 'bad guy' axis navys had been sunk. Canada contributed greatly to the ...

Actually, historically it was a light cruiser Heavy cruisers of that era had 8" guns. 3 of them mowing down a destroyer force is to be expected not to mention that most destroyers are not Skirmish. Try matching them up against cruisers, you'll see a different whole different battle there (or your fr...

Well, I personally like the PL system much better then a points based system. Even a simple points based system will get complicated quickly, not to mention that there will always be leftover points. I do agree that the Yamato and Iowa's need to be a higher priority level. KGV's don't match up very ...

2+ armour? Thats a little poor for a carrier built off of a battlecruiser isn't it? I think 3+ would be better.

I wouldn't necessarily say that, I think that it just needs to be bumped down a priority level.

Brooklin Class Cruiser and Japanesse slow loading topedoes

I recently rand a demo using a german, Japanesse, British and American cruiser force. The only raid level cruiser available to the USN is the Brooklyn. It doesn't have any torpedoes (which seems to be a constant in US cruisers) buit the most important factor seems to be the fact that it only has 6" ...
