    losing streak?

    I don`t want to rub it in but I have been on a really nice winning streak.

    Getting the Yamato in 25 Days in that reasonable?

    Honestly, under double digits. That`s commitment, I find that if I play the same ship too much I get really burned out. I have no idea how you guys manage it, I haven`t even gotten to my first t10.
  3. Play Russian dds, farm arsonist awards, dds don't need a buff.

    Aimbotters, Matchmaking and ticket response

    Someone with a good aim will hit most of the time. You are probably just playing against an experienced and competent player.

    A question to experienced BB players.

    The German Battleship line is probably the most forgiving out of all of the battleship lines but their guns are somewhat inaccurate. The IJN line focuses more on accurate mid to long range fire so you need decent aim to be effective. The IJN line also gets bigger guns than the other lines most of the time. Personally I would try to get to tier 5 in all three Battleship lines before you make a decision on what line to really grind down. Best of luck to you!

    Tactics for the Gneisanau

    I`m indeed going for a secondary build and have aft, I have watched business6 for a while now. My main problem is getting used to knowing when to push in (as in gauging whether or not anyone will come with me when I push) and the low broadside weight. I might have to watch business`s video on it again. Anyway, thanks.

    Tactics for the Gneisanau

    Alright so I`ve got the Gneisanau and am at the second hull. I'm liking it but the guns do sometimes make me wonder. I`ve had now multiple occasions where a cruiser has been beached in front of me and every one of my shots straddle each side of the target. I`m considering getting the main guns accuracy mod but I`ve heard that that can make the dispersion even worse close up. Now, I love everything else about the ship but the fact that the guns have been so gimped causes me to struggle to get high damage at all. I think this ship is more aimed towards shooting at battleships due to the high calibre and low amount of shells so I might try that rather that ever shooting at cruisers. Other than that is there anything anyone knows that I can do to improve my performance or is it more simply a question of my bad skills with the game?

    Nagato

    I really don`t mind the stock hulls on ships it teaches me how to play the ship better as it highlights it`s weaknesses. The stock Nagato has the range and it has the guns so I don`t see a reason to skip it.

    Team Hits penalty...

    I see what you are saying but I always make sure I at least see where my shells land, even if I zoom out directly after I fire, this is just because I`m not that great at this game and I still need to see where my shots are landing.

    How do I affect the match in mid-tier Soviet DDs?

    Okay, first of all, KEEP THE GUNS FIRING. Never stop shooting, set fires and annoy all of the BB captains. If you are being shot at, dodge and KEEP FIRING. Never stop firing. If a lot of people are shooting at you you pop smoke and KEEP FIRING like a little scum bag. If you have the opportunity be the one to stealth cap the objectives that no one is near. If you are getting focused whine like a little bitch and blame your team because the enemy team is not ever better than you, no, you team must suck. That is really about it, to do damage focus on your guns and KEEP FIRING.

    Amagi

    It is nice to know that it gets a lot better when I get the b hull, I`ve been starting to go better in her but I still haven`t played too many games in it. I have to look at that HE too, I might be able to make some bow on NCs very sad.

    Amagi

    Angling works very nicely in it but the guns seem like they are worse than the Nagato. I think that I just need to get a bit better at reading the map to get myself in a nice firing position.
  13. Peanutflower

    Amagi

    So, I have just come from the Nagato and I am now on the Amagi. I just need some help understanding what my role is, what I should be doing throughout the game and what I am most effective at killing. If anyone could take the time to help me with this it would b greatly appreciated.

    The Kaiser

    |19/09/2016| |Ship Reviews| |The Kaiser| |By Peanuflower| So, the Kaiser, I like it but is does still have problems. Main Battery The Kaiser is the current tier four battleship in the German battleship line. It has 10 305mm guns that pack a somewhat decent punch but still lack the punishing power of the higher tiers, this means that broadside cruiser can get away with their error. The guns tend to get quite a few penetrating hits on enemy ships but especially against battleships they struggle to land citadel hits. The lack of citadel hits is however balanced out by the fact that the German engineers who designed this ship managed to use an upturned turtle to give it extra armour, this is more formally know as turtleback armour. While you don`t take citadel hits in the Kaiser very often you also don`t dish them out often. Now all that being said about the citadel hits from the main battery on the Kaiser you will still take large amounts of damage out of a cruiser`s health bar. I will briefly go over the high explosive shells by saying don`t use them, they are about as useful as the Italians were to the Germans during World War 2 (don`t worry I haven`t gotten to the French yet). The turret firing angles are a bit wierd and you have to give the enemy a full broadside to fire all of your main battery guns. Survivability The survivability of the Kaiser is very good. Like all of the other German battleships it has turtleback armour which was mentioned before whick makes it very difficult to citadel. You do have to turn your ship broadside on to actually get all of your guns pointed at the bastard who is shooting at you. Just treat this ship like it doesn`t have a fifth gun turret and you will be much happier for it. The ship is also good bow on as you can wriggle your rudder and effectivly get six guns pointed at the helpless ship infront of you. Just like Germany your job is to bully the new players/countries who expose themselves to you ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) and be a damage sponge for your allies to hide behind while the one attack they mount on the French fails horribly (looking at you Italy). Agility This ship is about as flexible as the Maginot Line was. Its rudder was welded to the hull so it wouldn`t get Bismark`d and start to make a big salty doughnut in the ocean while getting smacked around by the Royal Navy and a bunch of biplanes. Anti Aircraft It might stop one aircraft but just like the Bismarck even the shittest plane will get through and do damage through the horrific torpedo belt that all of the German battleships have. You would think that the germans would actually learn some lessons from the Bismarck but no they all have shite torpedo protection. Stones can break through the ships torpedo protection and cause flooding. Secondary Battery The secondary battery is quite good on the kaiser like all of the rest of the German battleships but due to it`s relativley short range if a destroyer gets in range you`re probably going to be starting a forum thread winging and crying about destroyers being overpowered and needing a nerf even though if you turn every now and then you won`t take a torpedo hit unless it is a carrier manual drop which you can`t evade if the carrier capitain isn`t a total donkey which is a distinct possibility at the low tiers (please don`t look at my carrier stats or my stats in general, I`m good I swear). Concealment It`s a battleship, if you fire your guns you will be detected battleships are about as stealthy as an East German night club. Conclusion I`m going to hope that I have covered all of the points so I don`t embarass myself and conclude this review. I liked the Kaiser, it`s an okay ship and I think the only reason I even liked it in the first place was because of my extreme hype for the German battleships whick I`ve had to put on hold whilst I am on holidays. If you don`t enjoy this ship at least the grind is small to get to the lovely Konig at tier 5. The Kaiser let`s you bully the new players and the french into submission while they charge across an open field and into heavy machine gun fire while the french generals (aristocrats) wonder why the hell it isn`t working.

    The Ishizuchi

    To be honest all it would take to make the Ishizuchi good is giving it a detectability that is anything less than Mt Fuji.
