  1. An Argument for CV Removal

    Yes. Total rework of the class please and bloody hell... Do something about Saipay... The no penalty strafe out and 2 tiers above the ship tier is just too broken
  2. what's the best way to drive CVs to extinction

    How to make them extinct? Introduce more overtly powerful CVs that have fighters 2 tiers above the tier the ship in and don't give them strafe out penalty Sure fire way to kill the CV tech tree Tier 7 CV is DEAD
  3. My Unpleasant Life as an IJN DD Captain

    Here's my thoughts on your 4 goals and what you could do 1 - Make full use of your camo rating. Now with the removal of stealth fire, you can't rely much on your guns as you used to. They're still usable but you got to know when to use them. Know thy detection range and turn them on in the minimap. Have a rough gauge of your opposing DDs' detectability and since you're at tier 6, get to know which are the radar ships and stay away from them. 2 - I find IJN DDs useful for capping especially the torpedo line. Here's how I cap. As I get near the cap, I kill my engines and drift in to the barest of minimum needed to start capping i.e. having 75% of your ship's length in the cap circle. Resist the urge to smoke or fire. If they get too close for your liking, back out. While caping with 75% of your ship in the cap corcle, keep it bow on to roughly where the enemy main fleet is. Chances of combing enemy torpedoes is better. After capping, hang close to the cap corcle for a while to help the team spot for enemies. From what I have seen so far, DDs, opposing or friendly, gets trigger and smoke happy and start smoking or firing. Have gun and smoke discipline and balls of steel. It pays off. 3 - Exploit your camo rating. Don't just torp the forst thing that you see. Stalk it and have a feel how he moves. Than torp. If you can raise alarm to your team, click on the minimap or F3 notable targets. If you spot those RU and DE DDs, don't gun fight them. Stalk them as long as possible. 4 - Be a d- and use your team mates as cannon fodder. Don't get too absorb in the gun fight till you end up being baited over to their side. If you feel uncomfortable or it gets too hot, disengage. TLDR - IJN DDs require the player to be calm and level headed at all times and always have an exit strategy. IJN DDs can make the difference between winning and loosing since they got such low detectability. Don't rush your way up to Shimakaze.
  4. Why no options to disable battle modes.

    Same. I'd disable standard battles as well.

  9. How do you estimate speed?

    3 ways for me depending on the ship that I use In game torpedo aim assist Smoke Leading shots using Crosshair 7 and the mathmatical estimations and calculations as GRADAN said above.
  10. So apparently the Graf Zepplin testing starts soon

    Welcome to the partial ST programme. May your testing be filled with joy and laughter. Remember to comply with NDA if any.
  11. I've never used spotter planes so it's inconsequential I get into my cap zone and fight like a man I get in close and hantam them Doable with the amount of HE thrown in the game What concerns me most is that I only have Bismarck and Tirpitz to do this with
