|1.||World War 2 Online|
A FUN game that, contrary to what that "anonymous" fag-ass said, lots of people play. I bet he's a BF1942 player who was getting his ass owned in this because it's exactly the opposite of BF1942...it's REALISTIC. It is the first and only WWII MMO in first-person. Unlike World of Warcraft, this game is actually WORTH paying $15 a month for. The game is set in the early years of WWII (1940-41), so only the vehicles, weapons, and armies that were there during that time period are available. You can play as Axis (Germany) or Allies (Britain, France), across 1/2 scale of actual Europe. Each country has its own military personas (Army, Air Force, and Navy) from which you can choose from. As you gain kills (and town captures when you play as Infantry) you gain experience, which leads to a promotion of your rank. Your rank will carry over from each persona, no matter what country (Say you kill 5 enemy soldiers as a German Army rifleman, and gain 7% towards a promotion, your British/French Army personas will also have 7% towards a promotion now too, regardless of where you've played them or not) until rank 5. After you reach Rank 3 on any persona, you unlock the ability to spawn newer and better technology. (For instance, you can spawn better, more powerful tanks when you reach rank 3 on Army). After reaching rank 5 on any persona, you are considered an officer, and the experience you gain after is separate for each individual country. At rank 5 you also unlock the rest of the tan...more...

"The" USS Indianapolis to be precise. The warship was commissioned at the Philadelphia Navy Yard on 15 November 1932. On 30 JULY 1945, while sailing from Guam to Leyte, Indianapolis was torpedoed by Japanese submarine I-58. The ship capsized and sank in twelve minutes. Survivors were spotted by a patrol aircraft on 2 AUGUST. All air and surface units capable of rescue operations were dispatched to the scene at once, and the surrounding waters were thoroughly searched for survivors. Upon completion of the day and night search on 8 AUGUST, 316 men were rescued out of the crew of 1,199.
* The description of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis is immortalised by actor Robert Shaw's superbly acted monologue in the memorable scene of Jaws (USA, 1975).
HOPPER: You were on the Indianapolis?more...
BRODY: What happened?
QUINT: Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into her side, Chief. We was comin' back from the island of Tinian to Leyte. We'd just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in 12 minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half-hour. Tiger. 13-footer. You know how you know that in the water, Chief? You can tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail. What we didn't know, was that our bomb mission was so secret, no distress signal had been sent. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin' by, so we formed ourselves into tight groups. It was sorta like you see in the calendars, you know the infantry squares in the old calendars like the Battle of Waterloo and the idea was the shark come to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and sometimes that shark he go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark looks right at ya. Right into your eyes. And the thing about a shark is he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn't even seem to be livin'... 'til he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all your poundin' and your hollerin' those sharks come in and... they rip you to pieces. You know by the end of that first dawn, los...
