    Soviet Cruisers: Branch Review

    I can taste the OPness already, and my game is still installing the updates.

    15kms range torps does not make a difference to cv planes spotting them.
  3. Dread_Pirate_BlackHeart


    I've just built my Atago around torps main, and have 16 point Captain Yamamoto in it. ITS CRAP. I'm talking about 12 battles experience with this build: One cv will ruin any sneak, and attack you anyway, often there are 2x cv on an enemy team. AND Kitakame has NO AA, while Atago has a little, and planes ignore the Atago AA anyway, INCLUDING tier 6 cv!!!. Kitakame is going to see tier 10 cv ALL THE TIME. The next biggest threat is enemy dd. Haven't met one that has tried to run away from me yet....they all keen to engage, and their torps are better, better firing angles, faster reload, they often have SMOKE, Atago has none, Atago has NOTHING to help it retreat safely, no speed boost, no smoke, no nothing. Last biggest threat is Gaydar. Yup its everywhere, and at tier 10 for Kitakame, it's even on dds, cruisers AND BBs. Unless I can figure out how to successfully attack with Atago using torps, I think Kitakame is a wallet gimmick. And my own teammates are too often in the path of my torp drops, WG said they are going to look at this problem for the Kitakame. But most importantly remember, Kitakame has NO AA to back itself.

    Why Coal is the best mechanic?

    Also, and i might have sped read past any comment, but casual player doesn't tend to have 19 point captains to use, and the captains skills are making HUGE DIFFERENCES NOW. But to support my statement, MANY of the CC's or WoWSinfluencers are now stating "**** ship is ok, but to make it quite good you really need (x) amount of captains skill points to make it viable for battles". With x pretty much being a MINIMUM of 15 points.

    Asashio's maingun need to BUFF for close combat

    Asashio is a great DD as it is now. If you are moving in to spot other DDs for team, hopefully said team has your back, and will attack enemy when they appear.

    Another Dose of Drama

    I agree. As a casual player who invests a lot of money into the game, I cannot get enough steel after 3 years or so to even buy 1 ship yet, and these ships are very OP. I can however, buy MOST CV in the game. AHEM *Enterprise. WG WINS AGAIN.

    Warships on Air Special!

    Italian BB SAP performance will depend on the angles of penetration, WG are doing that with Italian SAP now on other ships, some cruisers have great angles (recent slight nerf). That is, ability to cause damage depending on the angle of the targets bow to your attacking ship. My Venezia has a steeper angle of attack than the mid to low tier Italian cruisers. So maybe WG will give BBs with SAP a very steep angle of damage potential so they can effectively combat other BBs who fight bow on, but given that the Italian BBs will have HE, I imagine that won't happen, that is what switching to HE is for. I'm certainly no fan of a slow firing BB being forced to spam HE just to try and do ok in a battle. I'd much prefer just to play a cruiser, make it russian, mid to high tier, any will do, GG. Range is becoming absolutely crucial now, with all the camp back and snipe ships WG are pumping out, so the next 6 months or so will be interesting. Please make enterprise available to ALL for purchase to make battles, I DUNNO, FAIRer???!.

  14. Dread_Pirate_BlackHeart


    replace BB meta with sniper meta, and you're good to go. now you can only play tier 10 ships with 19km minimum range.

    US BB Line split is live!

    WG player base from the only servers they care about: "These new russian god tier cruisers are brilliant, but they have a voracious appetite for damage farming, and are very hungry". WG: "HOLD MY VODKA".
