I'm thinking about picking this up, but if I do I'll use a different handle.

Somehow "Steelgrave" feels like a bad omen for a naval game....just sayin'.

It'd be interesting to re-look at some of my past battle stats, other than the Summary.  Can you do that?  Are they keeping the stats on each battle, ship or not since its still beta?  If not, be nice to have it.

They don't keep your individual battle stats, after you log out. 

However, they do track your averages and your highest match results per specific ship class on their website. 

If you log in to the World of Warships site and click on the "Players" button near the top right, it has a number of different tabs with your stats listed in various categories.  Unfortunately they don't have all that stuff implemented in the in-game UI yet, but I expect they will eventually (like in the others).

Im sooooo close to getting a Cleveland!  it seems to be a sweet spot ship in the US tech tree and probably one of the ships I fear most.  the thing just spits out salvos of hurt like a machine gun.

The Cleveland is a great ship. I get sad when I'm driving mine and the enemy team doesn't have an aircraft carrier. 2-3 Clevalands acting as AA escorts can tear apart entire enemy air groups. Hell I've seen enemy carrier turn their strike groups around when its just been me by our carrier. If only it had torpedoes then it would be perfect.

Not sure how I missed this from Gamescon but looks like the Germany navy will be the next to be added to the game:

I'm really liking WoWS.  Best gaming fun return for $1 I ever spent (HumbleBundle).  While I am slowly churning my way through the Japanese tech tree, I find that I keep returning to a few of the lower tier ships.  Seems like I've had some really good battles withe Kawachi, Tenyru and others.

Why did you "buy" it?  WoWS is free-to-play.

I'm guessing they gave you a few doubloons, or whatever the in-game pay coinage is?  At least.. I hope they did so.

There is a legendary ship in witp that destroys everything it comes across, never runs out of ammo and can take down massive transport fleets on its own - the Boise - and I'm sure she's a Cleveland

USS Boise was actually a Brooklyn class cruiser. One of the classes that came between the Omaha and Cleveland that is not in the game.

It was part of a Humble Bundle back in June.  Got me into the Closed Beta, included 1000 doubloons and the Murmansk.

I see.  That's a pretty good deal then.

I want night battles!!!

The Open Ocean map kinda sucks.. since it's just wide open.  I suppose if you play a high tier battleship you're happy with it, but it's pretty dull compared to fighting on the ones with islands.  Maybe they should change the open one to a night battle?

More maps with islands would be good either way.
