Bison will get right to work on that since he has some time on his hands.

^  Not me.  Some of us are satisfied with the artillery we already have.  8)

One that I play often and somehow seem to always lose...

Not really us losing as much as our wallets. But think of all the quality game time we get!

Martok, are you talking, Rifled or Smooth-Bore?  :hehe:

Rifled, of course!  Better range, plus it keeps things on a straighter trajectory.  ;)

Speaking of rifled artillery, Dan Gallery was the commander who captured U505 in WWII.
He wrote some very funny books after the war and recounted this story.
The ship he was on would cross the equator and he put out this memo
"Scientists studying the coriolas effect have theorized that a fine stream of liquid will have a twist.  North of the equator, this twist will be in a clockwise manner, and South of the equator, the twist will shift to counter-clockwise.
" we shall cross the equator at noon today.  All hands are encouraged to test this theory and report the results.

"The rifling of the instrument determines the twist."
"Twisting the instrument controls the twist of the stream."
"Smoothbore.  No twist."

"These things must be done delicately-- or you hurt the spell."  - The Wicked Witch of the West.
"We've got the torpedo damage temporarily shored up, the fires out and soon will have the ship back on an even keel. But I would suggest, sir, that if you have to take any more torpedoes, you take 'em on the starboard side."   Pops Healy, DCA USS Lexington.

I believe the Ladies prefer a smooth bore. I meant to say, smoothbore. Sorry.  ::)

The Spiffing Brit is clearly enjoying himself...  ;D

Agreed, on both parts! 

On the other hand, since he is well-known (if not downright infamous) for his ability to find and gleefully take advantage of bugs & exploits like that, I imagine CA will fix that particular issue in short order.  ;)

That was infuriating and hilarious at the same time. Where has The Spiffing Brit been all my life? He has tons of similar videos one dozens if not hundreds of games. If his exploits are legit and not the result of him going into the code and modding these games, how can studios continue to release things like this?
