    Frustrated with Wargaming

    What does the statement "Does not dominate the sky near as easy mean?" Does it mean it no longer dominates the sky? or Does it mean dominating the sky has gotten slightly harder?? And I never said that IJN DD's should be good at AA? Did I? NO again are you actually reading what I typed? I absolutely agree IJN DD's are ment to rely on torps, I am in total agreement! My point was the Nerf bat hit the target to hard and that Wargaming once again over nerfed there target as they so frequently do!

    Germany to kick off?

    Majority of there playerbase??? EU Server EU1 13522 EU2 6499 NA Server NA EAST 6549 NA WEST 4391 ASIA Server ASIA 8197 This is the current playerbase that they publish, Wargaming claims to have 7 Russian Server's with 1,0000,000 subs yet they refuse to publish what that actually playerbase is.... You can call me a conspiracy theorist but I doubt the Russia on its own has the gaming population to be largest then the above servers and all 7 combines might actually equal Asia... But you don't reveal that type of info for other financial reasons! So of the Playerbase they are willing to actually share the info with us. 11,000 Active Americans... 20,000 Active Western Europeans and another 8,000 Asians... How does Japan makes sense for its market when likely half of the 8000 are Australians.... The other 30,000 Players would likely be all for the UK before even the USA....

    Personally I don't use HE but the point is that my entire Harbor got nerfed and it pretty much did! As for the CV's I was an IJN CV player (North American closed Beta) that was very vocal for IJN CV's having a Fighter OPTION... (Not Mandatory) it would have had a similiar effect of less torpedo bombers sinking ships so less NON CV players aren't Crying OMG the torpedo planes are OP, make them stop.... Without making us feel Nerfed and without making CV's virtually Useless on the outcome of the Game! Yes Pre Patch a IJN CV could wreck ships and have a major impact on the battle Yes Pre Patch a US CV with Air Superiority could have a Major Impact on the battle by keeping the IJN CV's from sinking everything... Pre Patch ships did not fear getting sunk by a US CV if it was the only CV in the game the only player annoyed was the opposing teams DD's who new they would end up hounded to no end! Now NO CV is a real threat to the overall outcome of the game they are there own little world of irrelavency where they fight for control of the sky so that they can eventually not annoy some ships! But never be a major factor! So CV's went from being HIGH Value as they SHOULD BE to Low value!!! Infact many people have simply stopped playing them... Hence you see them so much less now... And Lastly I did not say Increase the Minekaze's Detection I said the 300 Meter detection decrease is the only Nerf they should have hit it with and simply buffed the American DD's as they did to counter them... But wargaming as it always does over compensated to an extreme, instead of small nerfs till its correct they give it a huge nerf to the far polar opposite extreme!

    French navy- We surrender, abandon ship, scuttle the ship, wait why are the Brits sinking us Captain??? But your right, just because the French and Italians were totally Inept, doesn't mean there ships if crewed by solid Kreigsmarine or Royal Navy Sailors wouldn't have performed well....

    Play Safe??? What you dont want to upset the US players??? Is that playing it safe??? Well I am a US Citizen born and raised, even served in the US Navy... And I think its just flat strange that the US Tech tree was released before the UK's!!!

    All IJN Ships HE was nerfed so every IJN ship in essense was nerfed, the FuryTaco is about the only IJN Ship that came out of the patch stronger but it was so woefully underpowered anyway its not much of a buff! The Turrent turn rate of the Tier 5 DD was so horrible pre patch that it was impossible to use your gun vs anything especially a US DD when is about the only time you would ever think of breaking your concealment with your Pea Shooter... You litteraly had to stop turning sail in a straight line and wait 20-30 seconds for the gun to be usable half the time.... That was more of a bug fix then a buff... And the removal of the 10K torp the 300 Meter closer detection and the smaller arc of Torp Fire is nothing but a Major Whack with the nerf stick... I only used two american Ships Wyoming (HE Nerf and Turret turn reduction) Bogue (Far less helpless planes to shoot down, more fighters) Kuma- HE Nerf Kongo- HE Nerf Myogi - HE Nerf Minekaze- Total Clubbing, Smaller Torp Angle, Slower Torps, Shorter Range Torps, 300 Meters less Detection and US DD Buff. IJN CV's - Forced to use fighters Oh Sorry my Arkansas and Albany were not nerfed.... Personally a Far more sensible fix to the Minekaze would have been , 300 Meter less Detection and Buff the American DD's, as US DD's are the counter to the IJN DD's they play completely different... US DD's are off hunting you... And you are off trying to avoid being seen....

    I don't understand Wargamings thought process of releasing the USA Tree before the UK The UK was the 1 Navy in the world since they took it away from Spain, anything prior to spain and were talking about row boats... (Vikings??? Thats just a joke!!!) Thats like saying the Polynesian Catamarans were the greatest Navy ever!!! No other nation in history has a more Robust Naval Tradition and its a joke that the UK was not the first Tech tree created and released! Who to release with the UK should have been the argument, between Germany and Japan! Personally the two most Famous ships in History the Bismark and the Yamato, would be the focal point of that endless argument... But I would have given the edge to Germany.... So the far more Sensible Order of Tech Tree release should have been: UK ( Under this tree should be Premiums, to give some love to [Canada, Australia, New Zeeland, Other commonwealth Nations]the commonwealth guys, Ultimately there Her Majesty's (Insert Country) Ships) Germany - Because its the lead historical Protagonist in World War I and II.... Japan USA Italy (Yes Italy's antiquated but yet far larger world war II fleet makes it far more deserving to be released ahead of Russia!) Russia France -Could just leave it out completely

    Two Brothers channel run.

    If the team rushing the channel would simply wait 2 minutes to allow the oppositions flank to separate and move to the flanks then the strong push into the center would be far far more effective... But Pug's are never that organized

    I only played it twice post nerf.... took forever to get the timing down on the torp's pre nerf and now the timing is all jacked up again because of the nerf... People think you can just magically sink stuff at will with torps at 7K... Thats far from true....

    This is not at all what I posted..... IJN DD's Sux at AA not me.... I also posted my entire Harbor got nerfed not just my DD's Also my CV's and my Cruisers and my BB's that are IJN and my one ship I like that was US (the Wyoming) My entire Harbor was nerfed... not just my DD's but the Tier 5 DD was far and away my favorite to play! Even my US CV got nerfed in a way when they forced the Japs to start using fighters so it doesnt dominate the sky near as easy now....
  11. So I have been a player around wargaming since beta of World of Tanks and I should be use to the NERF stick but I am not!!! I swear my entire Harbor got nerfed, IJN CV's my favorite ship's the IJN DD's got mega nerfed and yet the Cleveland is still sailing around sinking crap at will (Not in my Harbor) and mysteriously not nerfed.... Even my Wyoming got hit with a nerf?!? Warships without German and British ship lines was already rapidly getting boring for me but the silly needless game balancing has pretty much eliminated any chance of my Re-Prem'ng any time soon! And yes I am whinging, and I am sure someone will say something along the lines of good the game is better off without you, but wargaming please stop nerfing my stuff I work hard to get the good vehicles because they ARE good, not so I can get them and have them trashed by your game balancing adjustments!!! Its okay for some ships to be better, like the Cleveland, for instance and when you nerf popular ships that perform well your only upsetting large chunks of your playerbase when you do it!... Secondly the IJN DD's were not doing well because they were OP, they were doing well because good players played them well, if you really think they were so Over Powered then I want to see one of your game developers play one and sink me sailing a zig zag pattern changing speeds at 7K with a torp at will..... That just wasnt ever the case.... hitting things at 7K with torps is easier said then done, and now that the max range of the torps has been shrunk and I am easier to see well I am nearly as usefull as an American DD but hey they can atleast become AA plateforms, and they atleast have guns to sink other DD's with! Plus the extra smoke buff's you gave em.... You could have just left the IJN DD's alone and buffed the American DD's that would have been just fine but no you always go to far in an extreme!!! I should be excited about Warships and getting into the Ranked battles, but no, you can't leave well enough alone you always have to nerf stuff.... As a Tier 5 IJN DD I had a very limited role that took patience and methodical play. I did not excel at DD on DD action thats an American DD thing they have the guns for that.... I did not excel at AA lol.... No the one thing I had was come to 7K launch torps with an extremely large amount of lead that took many games to master and even then rarely hit because no one drives a straight line!!! But because me and others used the ship to the best of its ability, (meaning we got lucky every now and then, launch enough torps something will eventually hit) and we made sure not to get closer then 7K so we didnt get spotted we should be punished with a nerf.... Any Carrier with half a brain could effectively remove our threat by putting a plane over our head.... Everyone and there mother targets a DD before anything else even if its 20K from them on the other side of an island... But yeah obviously we were over powered.... I contend that the IJN DD WAS just right... and your nerf took a viable ship and tossed it into the gutter... Sure you can still get some kill's in it if you play it like an American DD but if I wanted to do that I would have leveled up the american DD line! Anway rant off, and yes this angry rant is a few weeks after the fact thats how long I have been spewing and REFUSING to play warships... because of it...
