Angry will land an Airbus 320 plane. (Passenger lands plane) Part #1 “Precursor”

Well, I am not entirely a pilot…yet, however, I know a great deal about airplanes.

In approximately 3 months, I will test wether or not I am able to land an Airbus A320 without the proper training. Why without the proper training one might ask…

To test the feasability of a passenger with a fligh sim compassion landing a plane. That is the reason. To check if it is possible. I have claimed (without knowing for sure) for 15 years, that I could land a plane if the pilots were no longer available for the job. It is time to put my mouth where my joystick is and actually test that. If you found that sounding abit wrong, I agree with you…

“You known more about these things than 99.9% of the worlds population, and you are still scared of flying?” -Brett the Intern, 2013

I explained to him that It felt like I was wetting my pants aproximately 3 hours, and up ontil the flight occoured…

Abit of history. When I was two years old (1981), I went on an airplane to Malorca.
When I was 15 years old (1994) I controlled a glider (which had an engine) for aproximately 10 minuttes. It kept having an engine, but I controlled the plane for 10 minuttes 😉

Already at that time, I had ample amount of hours on my old C64 with Chuck Yeagers advanced flight trainer, F117 Stealth fighter and alot of other plane related games.

Microsoft flight simulator came along… I went crazy… My room became a cockpit!
My television was removed from its “television position” and used as a monitor. Old keyboards had stickers on them explaining what they do… It looked somewhat like this.. Actually, it looked exactly like this 🙂No automatic alt text available.No automatic alt text available.

Itteration 17550446 (Lost TV-show reference)

Eventually, I replaced the 40″ and the 20″ with three 24″ I do not have imagry of the 3 monitor setup, I only have imagery of the first two monitor setup, with Saitek pro fligh controls.

It appeared like this: (Please note, this was a tech test, not a flight test, and I am well aware that I am clipping some trees which, would most likely not be survivable)

The setup is run by THREE computers… not one.

-The two monitors displaying the A2A Spitfire is controlled by ONE computer running Microsoft Flight Simulator X
-The laptop displaying the basic instruments (one laptop, one computer :))
-A crap computer displaying the monitor between my legs displaying radar and other stuff the Spitfire did not have 🙂

It looked like this… (Actually, you can wait for that untill part #2) 🙂 or not…

-We’re disabling the “Alt”-attack feature for tier IV and V carriers — this change should bring better balance to carriers at lower tiers, where most warships have weaker or non-existent AA defenses

#Morons… that is how it was ships simply did not have AA! The reason CV’s are “overpowered” is because people have developed what is normally considered “skill” now, you leave it all up to an AI… How about having warships just shoot their guns without aiming aswell? It would balance things!!!! Sure….. How about having the automated torpedo lead indicator removed from torpedo capable-ships? 😀 As if…

-Fighters may now be removed from a fight with enemy aircraft via an “Alt” attack — when you withdraw a squadron from action this way, it’ll always lose one aircraft. (This rule will apply to all carriers except Saipan.)

#This will not apply to Saipan? are you kidding me? An already overpowered carrier is being buffed once more? Of course… there would be no incentive to buy that piece of “pay-to-win” shit if you morons didn’t put in more goodies… Where is the skill requirements for playing pay-to-win? Nowhere.. You pay… you win!

-Once a carrier is destroyed, her squadrons will maintain their position after fulfilling a particular order rather than returning to the carrier’s final sinking location

#Hurray! You used logic for once! Not enough to keep me engaged though!

The developers of this game has one thing in mind.. Making money. And that, is a very bad thing! I will not adhere to this bullshit any longer! Feel free to delete my account, you know who I am!

Angry Administrator and Thunderf00t vs. Beautifulgirlbydana (Nuclear Science vs. stupid)

A few years ago, I was watching this guy on Youtube, he put up some outrageous claims about radiation, radioactive isotopes and the Fukushima disaster.

I decided I wanted to shove abit of science his way and he completely freaked out 😀
He responded like this:

Thunderf00t came 1 year later and set the record straight once and for all 🙂

Ranger worst rating ever…

Hmm, yeah, I am having the worst rating ever in the Ranger in Ranked battles.

Why is that so? because I deal very little damage to ships, but I do take out most of the enemys planes. That is what 2-0-2 setup of the Ranger is for.

It labels me as a very bad player though!

Some say, but fighters fighting planes is an automated process. That is incorrect. Strafing is the key here.. If you do not manage to strafe the enemy planes, your ships are fucked. Strafing requires skills, especially with the bugs involved in strafing. I have discussed this HERE

Now to my current stats for today…  Ranger (2-0-2)  Ranked, Lexington (0-1-3) Random

Sad…bad :p Actually, both are fairly good, however wows-numbers.com ignore AA skills and state so as they think it requires no skills to shoot down enemy airplanes with airplanes… They are wrong!

Ranger Ranked

Lexington Random

Had I not wasted my efforts on shooting down airplanes, I might have been abit higher placed than #14 in the ranger sorted after max dam this season..

In comparison, I was #2 with the lexington last season where I wasted little time with fighters. The ranger though, cannot stand alone, if enemy decides to strike the ranger and I do not carry fighters, I am dead and the next thing that happens is that my teamsmates dies

Quiet now..

Go back to the game, stop bothering the CV players. It does not help team morale to call anyone a n00b..! In the game where I scored the 244k I sank 4  enemy ships, we had 3 ships remaining, they had 1 carrier and we lost the game… I was speechless!

Gardening with Thermite

I walked past a garden the other day on my way to obtain groceries. In that garden a man was attempting to remove a 50cm diameter tree stump. The last remains of a tree he chopped down last winter. He had drilled a series of holes in it and poured gasoline ontop of it to burn it of. He fared poorly.

I stopped and looked at the stump, I told him, that’s not going to work well. You will need abit more science to remove that without digging it up.

He looked at me, and asked me what could be done.

I told him, obtain 1kg of aluminium powder and 1kg of Rust, also known as FeO, and a strip of magnesium.

He looked at me puzzled and ask me whats that going to end up as?
I said:” it is going to be the same struff they use to weld railroadtracks with… Thermite.”

Al+FeO=Thermite.

Thermite burns without external oxygen requirements as it is contained in the Rust. It is self-fueling so to say and will burn further down than the gasoline. The gasoline fire will suffocate at a very low depth of penetration. The thermite keeps burning at around 2200C the gasoline fire is “only” around 1500C.

Take heed, it cannot be doused with water! I can burn underwater aswell 😉

I hope to find a hole in the ground next time I come around :p

When clan leaders are more busy controlling than teaching.

I left my clan today. I was kicked and banned from teamspeak for having a funny nickname other than AngryAdm

I was idling in TS in our dedicated AFK channel with muted mic and speakers. and carried the Nickname: “DrunkPersonPilotingACV” which I found quite fitting and entertaining.

-I was not planning to intereact with anyone in the clan at that time.
-I am one of two carrier pilots in the clan and I rarely play anything else.. Dead tell
-I am one of two players from Denmark (team speak shows a nationality flag) Dead tell.

I was then kicked from the TS server by the admin. TS started making noise interrupting whatever else I did which gets very anoying.

I changed my nickname to “IAMAFKSTOPPOWERTRIPPING” as i did not have mic connected and could not go yell at the man… who does seem to have a requirement for players to do all sorts of stuff out of game, so that they can be members in the game.. micromanaging everything, and wanting to do so.

I was then banned from teamspeak a few moments later.

Why did he want me to change my nickname back to my original nickname now that I was not playing with them? If I had done so I would have been poked 10 times by other clannies asking me to join division or what not. My name stated my status! The result= exactly that noone bothered me, and I bothered noone. Starting the game without being on teamspeak is also a problem for the leader… so.!

I left the clan afterwards. This was not the main reason, but a few things have anoyed me with some other members and the chief. So… I am flying the Solo-pirate flag for now 🙂 Yarrr!

World of Warships – Things that could improve (Carriers)

Carriers were the most powerful warships of WW2… in WOWS… they are the most nerfed… There is a reason there are rarely any cv’s in the game..They are broken..!

AUTOPILOT LOCK FUNCTION / DISABLE FUNCTION
I dont know how often it has happened that my ship gets an (unwanted) autopilot command when I box-select multiple plane units, my ship sails away in a direction I dont want it to and suddenly there are 20 enemy ships shooting my ship while I focus on killing his planes or bomb stuff… When they are done bombing, I check my ship and it has sailed itself to doom…

-Planes slow down when under AA attack or fighters shooting at them.
What real planes would do is FULL THROTTLE “but the pilots get scared” that does not matter to the plane at full throttle! It does not get slower because it gets “scared” it is a completely bogus feature! “Oh someone is shooting at us from the ground or rear! lets slow down and present a better target! that is the logical thing to do!!” BULLSHIT!

6 planes gets disturbed by a single CA/BB fighter plane… that is too much! The cruisers already have defensive AA… no need to nerf carriers even more! Remove fighters launched from cruisers, they have enough with a spotter. I highly doubt battle-hardened pilots gets “scared” because of one plane…

Destroyers with defensive AA makes them invulnerable to Carriers bomb and torpedo attacks. That is super carrier nerf…

Strafing is bugged. Sometimes planes go in a zig zag pattern in a direction I did NOT ask them to go… they hit nothing and suddenly teleport..

Torpedo bombers default to return along the path they dropped the torpedoes, then after doing that for a few seconds they fly home. If they drop torpedoes southish, they return northish for a few seconds and THEN they go west home to the carrier if the carrier is west. That is silly and usually causes planes to die.

Teleporting Fighters fighting each other. I dont know how often 1-2 of my fighters has been fighting 1 squad with 6 planes, I send in my 2nd squad to strafe both my own and his planes. However, opponent finishes my planes, his planes then teleport 1-2 km’s away from the fight position. If strafe orders are already given, the strafe will miss as the enemy planes teleported out of the strafe area. Guess what the opponent does… he takes advantage and strafes my planes when they finally stop strafing.

-SHIFT PROBLEM. Sometimes the game thinks i keep shift pressed, when I try to bomb something, it just sets a waypoint. No matter what I do, I cannot get my planes to do what I want… Game over… task-manager, kill world of warships and await the iiiiiiinnnnnnsaaaaane loading times!!

-CPU usage?!? Is WoWS doing heavy calculations in the background? Collaboration with SETI@HOME or Human genome project?!?  I have never seen a game use so much CPU just by sitting still in the harbor/menu… Tom Clancy’s the division uses HALF the amount of CPU when i run around in town with FULL GRAPHICS… WoWs is using 3 cores 100% of the time out of 6. If I set afinity to only use two cores, the game will lag like a maniac. What IS the game doing in the background?

-USN Plane setups. American carriers have shitty plane setups. (Tier 8 example provided)

Give CV pilots the option to configure their carrier. 4 open slots, max 1 torpedo, rest of the 3 slots players own choice on US carriers. With IJN carriers: Limit to max two squads of torps, rest players choice.

-Matchmaking… I am tired of sinking myself with my T8 CV getting into T10 battles.. It is unbalanced! Fix it! Everyone hates it!

-CV credit income  Obvious, fix it!

-More airborne units/more planes pr. squad simultaneously CV’s are handicapped as they can only launch some of their planes. The equivalent BB/CA/DD nerf would be to disable 2/3’s of all guns and torpedo tubes until they have been destroyed.. that is silly and does not reflect reality at all. A CV in WW2 would launch 90% of its compliment, not 1/3 or 1/4th and let the rest sit and await the already launched planes destruction.
