  1. Too many Yamato's in ranked

    Conqueror is actually one of the worse pick if the opposing team has a lot of Yamato. The average engagement distance of 18km+ at early game does not allow Conqueror to stack fire damage efficiently enough while Yamato just chew through 32mm plating of Conkek like nothing
  2. Can I still say "poi" and "dalao mercy"? :(
  3. Late tier premiums problems.

    I can't say for anyone else but I only consider using real money to buy OP/very good premium ships that might stay effective for a fairly long time. The main reason is the high price WG set for their ships. 40ish dollars for ships like pre-buff Ashitaka or the current Hood is simply not worth it unless you are a fan or collector with lots of spare money.
  4. WG failed to clamp down on BOT

    man, seeing these numbers and looking back at my t10 ships make me feel like I have a lot of money
  5. Please remove the karma system

    Let it drop to 0 and you will find peace since it can't become lower :P I have a friend who trash talks and gets reported like 80% of his games and he has never got chat banned once across his 7000 battles.
  6. khaba need buff

    Personally I think Khaba was well balanced when they only nerfed its mobility and range. Removing its 10km torp is really what makes it an one-trick pony.
  7. Premium ship summer sale

    So Kii is the last ship to be put on sale. I've been citadeling more Kii than Amagi in my whole life despite all the difference in their popularity so I guess Kii sucks. Still wondering if I should utilize the discount and just leave her in port hoping for a buff - I really love playing Amagi in the first place and 30% sale is not that common.
  8. My personal method is like following but it involves free exp at some tiers so it might not suit you :D For tier 3/4: Free xp Tier 5: Ask my clanmate to rebuy Langley and div. A little dirty but blame WG for tier 5 MM first. Tier 6/7: Operations best waifu Tier 8: Cherry Blossoms if possible, otherwise free xp as well Tier 9: 9/10/10 div, you're going to be thrown into tier 10 anyway
  9. USS Black

    Yeah I originally thought this ship would be OP af and I would steamroll every DD on the enemy team like I could do with Belfast. In the end the torpedoes are soooooo slow for my taste so I just switch back to Fletcher if I want to play a tier 9 DD solo. The radar is ofc a decent addition but only makes a noticeable difference against unicum DD players. You can still duel against the average DD player in a Fletcher very effectively with good management of ally LoS and smoke. I'm not advocating for Black buff though
  10. Well, even if you play casually you still have a chance at getting SC and SC have a chance to drop steel. It is by no means an easy way but at least that's an option available to everyone.
  11. New Ships for friday?

    I don't have the Kii myself but around a month ago I came across a reddit thread with the same question as yours. According to that thread, EU/Asia players can purchase the Kobayashi camo for Roma/Kii seperately in the client with 7000 doubloons while NA does not sell that camo ingame. Would be nice if anyone here can confirm that.
  12. Afaik you can only see the tag color post-game so it really doesn't matter that much I guess? Also, not everyone in a hurricane clan is a super unicum nor a bronze tagged player should be automatically considered bad.
  13. How to deal with so much radar in a DD

    Too many radars are not that bad. Too many radars on one side and 0/1 on the other is the real problem.
  14. Hadn't run it for a while and I used to think it's better than the buffed Ultimate Frontier. At least until yesterday when I decided to complete the 5* mission for 1 day of premium. Things went pretty well and we sailed for 2/3 of the way to the extraction point fairly smoothly. Then by some magic, our bot Rouan decided to sail in a straight line and eat all 8 torps from enemy Gaede which I spotted with sonar from 5km away and was left with 6k hp. To make it worse, all ships from the last enemy wave before the extraction point literally ignored everyone surrounding the Rouan and focused on it instead. 30s later we received a "Defeat" message. So yeah, Hermes is the worst operation in my eyes now
  15. Should I get Moskva or Kronshtadt?

    Bought Kronshtadt on release and honestly I prefer Moskva so far due to its better accuracy. Kronshtadt guns feel too inconsistent in potentially game-changing situations for me. The penetration value is too high, plus the BB dispersion means that unless the shells luckily fall directly into the citadel, all you will see is 3-4x overpen for like 4k damage. I've encountered so many broadsiding cruisers that could have been outright annihilated by a well placed salvo of Baltimore/Roon but received pitiful damage from Kronshtadt. Not having the ability to overmatch most t8-10 cruisers is also a liability when you have to take risk and make play on some occasions. On the bright side, Kronshtadts is tanky af in reality despite its 25mm plating. The citadel roof also looks thin but I haven't received any unexpected citadel from that angle so far so I guess it isn't that much of a weakness.
