The Dockyard Dandy was navy slang for the “Navy News” newspaper, and since this is news about a Navy and it takes place inside a dockyard, it seemed reasonably appropriate.




  2. Finally someone other than flamu

  3. I’m early for once, I would like to say to our Gnome Lord – thank you for all the great content recently 🙂

  4. im here to see the salt mines Gnome lord

  5. Gaijin: makes painfull and bad crafting events
    War Gaming: “watch and learn ya scrub”

  6. Good Morning Jingles 🙂

    Good Morning Everyone 🙂

  7. If it’s like the Warthunder one, prepare to chew through your arm in frustration

    • @Thomas Girou WG giving free T10 heavy cruiser to everyone? IN your dreams…I think you have grind shit out of it to get it.

    • @Tero T You don’t have to do well to get a decent reward in WoWS unlike WT.

    • @Tero T all the grinding will get you to 40% you need €400-500 of crates depending on how lucky you are with drop rates to get the ship.

    • Grinding like the benham maybe

    • At the entry-level rate of 202 points, it will take 220 days out of the 27 day duration. In order to get all 64 million required points in the 27 day duration you would need an average of 1,646! Means you are going to need a lot of grinding for tasks, and it is ABSOLUTELY designed to give you 5-10 million points and then chew your arm in frustration watching the score tic up too slowly, and then buy your way out.
      They saw what War Thunder “got away” with by hiding horrible psychological traps behind confusing math with misleading announcements, and decided to launch an improved version that incorporated a massive amount of sunk value fallacy to crush your soul even more.

      TLDR: Wargaming’s Christmas present for us is a sandpaper dildo.

  8. I introducing the large cruiser forever to be called a battlecruiser by our glorious gnome overlord.

    • But they’re synonymous. It just depends which navy you talk to (US likes to tone down its bigger projects to not draw attention)

  9. “aimed at children” oh no you didnt

  10. That jab aimed at coppa and yt at the end almost made me fall out of the chair laughing xD

  11. ROFL, nice shot at YouTube at the end!!
    What a cool concept, allowing all of the WoW Captains a look at how the internal structure lies w/in a large ship and have an idea as to what causes a ship’s strong and weak points. I’m no builder of ships, so does anybody know if this shows the actual linear timeline of the construction process?

    • It depends a lot on scale and complexity, but yeah, most modern ships are built using a prefab process (even the new Ford-class supercarriers).

    • Robert Lorrison which with the exception of Liberty ships wasn’t how ships were built in WWII

    • @Connor McLernon sure they were, you’re just not thinking of it in terms of scale. Prefabrication wasn’t a new concept in WWII, they were simply limited by the amount of weight a given crane could lift into place.

    • So did a bit more research, and the initial mistake I made was looking at ships built in the 1940’s, where a lot of WWII ships were built in the 30’s. It also depends on the shipyard where it was built and the class of ship. The Littorio for example, was built keel first, with everything else built on top of that, and took a total of 6 years to build. With the Liberty class cargo, with a more modular design, they were spat out in 9 months.

    • @Connor McLernon I’ve been seeing ships built both ways: pre-fab and from the keel up. It looks as though the Libertys were quickly done pre-fab. The battleships appear to be laid out from the bottom up to the top. The Liberty ships lacked the armor plating,

  12. I’d love to see other ships done like this. Ships like USS Yorktown, IJN Shinano, HMS Prince of Wales, or maybe submarines once they drop.

    • would absolutely love to see USS Yorktown she was my fav of the 3 Yorktown sisters. As far as IJN Shinano though if they did bring her in kinda curious as to what they would bring her in as. Would they bring her in as the 3rd Yamato class Battleship as she was originally intended to be or as the Aircraft Carrier that they started retrofitting her as before she was sunk?

    • @Battleship Haruna Technically 4 Yorktown Class. Wasp was the last of the Yorktown class and basically the testbed for the Essex class.

    • @Michael Mitchell Wasp was Wasp, smaller, lighter, slower, and less well protected than the Yorktown Class. She was also built before Yorktown #3, USS Hornet. Wasp shared very little with the Yorktown Class aside from basically dragging the corner bounding box to make it smaller.

    • @Michael Mitchell you’re gonna need to show me where it says this because every wiki i have looked at including this one says that she was her own class and the Yorktown class was only a class of 3 carriers

    • @Michael Mitchell Wasp was not a Yorktown – she was less than two thirds the displacement of the Yorktowns, 80 feet shorter, three knots slower, and considerably less well protected compared to the Yorktowns. She was built to fit inside the 15,000 ton leftover tonnage allowance from the Washington Naval Treaty. Hornet (CV-8), the actual third Yorktown, was ordered simultanously (more or less) with the first units of the Essex class after Japan and Italy pulled out of the treaty, because building another Yorktown immediately would be faster than waiting for the Essex class design to be finalized. At that point, Wasp wasn’t finished building, but it was way too late to fix her design and make her as fast and as durable as the Yorktowns or Essexes.

  13. LG COC The Lagging Offencoch

    Aaaw 🙂

  14. Just another reason why I like Warships over Tanks, cool stuff like this.

  15. I would love to see this for all steel ships it would give working class players ability to unlock steel ships

  16. would love to see this for the techline ships, so you can build the next ship by getting XP 😛

  17. If drak has tough me anything its that building a ship takes a long time and the bureau of ordinance will screw it up.

    • with the possible exception of the fletchers coming off the assembly line.

    • @Roger Coulombe just dont ask them to give you battleship guns to fit a ship, they may just do there own thing and forget they have to fit a ship and only tell you they changed thing far to late to do anything.

  18. Nobody:
    Keiser: How about 15 more Essexes?

  19. “We’re going to have the opportunity to unlock… A tier 10 Battl-”
    “Hold up Jingles!!! What about Dasha?!!! You think we’re blind?! Priorities man!”

  20. “Its a battle cruiser you cant just build it in one day”

    :1944 american factories intensely stare:

    • Dennis Ivan challenge accepted lol ?

    • Our shipyards averaged a complete, ready-to-sail liberty ship every 42 days, and the No. 2 Yard of Permanente Metals Corporation in Richmond, California once managed to launch one, SS Robert E. Peary, only 4 days and 15-1/2 hours after the keel was laid. She was by no means complete, but a floating hull in less than five days is still amazing.

    • To be fair, we never cranked battle cruisers out in a day, but we could easily crank out dozens of B-17, and B-24 bombers a day, and Liberty-class cargo ships in less than 4 days by the end of the war.
