    Ishizuchi Help

    Yeah she is a fun HE spammer, damage dealer. The CV nerf at T4 has also given her a big boost as those dam SealClubbing 19pt Langley captains would always go straight for you once spotted. Gonna take her out for a spin tonight

    If you really want to be slightly evil in this ship --- shoot HE badly at some cruisers till they get within 8km range then switch to AP and wait for the broadside. So much fun Dev Striking them as they turn to torp you not expecting the shell switch. Must shout in All chat : Glory to the Emperor! as you do it too

    emile bertin

    I love the EBertin - such a fun ship and so much utility with plane and sonar. It is a DD killer, BB burner and with its range and really threaten CV's. Hell even one time I took down 34 planes (mainly Hosho TB's) sitting in a friendly smoke. No need for speed boost when doing 39 knots --- so wish the La Glass was just a bigger EB but not to be.......
  4. Not sure if you are open -- but with all those guys in the one spot -- did you think of torping the hell out of them? Maybe rushing B was bad but killing a few while they locked into area was much better than going north to chase the single ship. Maybe his instruction wasn't clear enough but who has time to do anything when CV. Agreed he doesnt need to go ape in PM though. Thats on him.
  5. FWIW - had a similar experience with this guy (maybe he wasn't as salt rage induced) and it was a win. He just didn't like the way we won. Guess he has other problems that leak out into the game. Best ignored. ---after watching the replay -- feel for him...so hard to watch all those mistakes

    Fiji Rank experience and ranking out

    You should keep going to R10 - pretty easy ride and the rewards are worth it. Below R10 --- thats when things get wobbly.....
  7. Just curious to understand other people's Season 6 experience with Ranked and the Fiji? Looking at the stats a lot of Fiji players seem to have stopped at R10 on the Asia server. Not sure how many have ranked out (I feel lucky and relieved to have made it) I do apologise to anyone on my team who suffered some bad moments during the middle season as I was learning what I could and couldn't do in this ship. It is so fragile that any minor mistake gets punished severely. Despite attracting a lot of criticism as I as simple 'not a Belfast' I ended up with more compliments that complaints than when I started. From my experience I feel this is a very powerful ship, not equal tier with the Belfast, but with RPF and extended Hydro I felt I was not far off it. Best thing was you could provide a lot of utility on a flank and if you timed it right you could take out the DD+Cruiser combo that was often isolated without losing too much health. Not having Radar was not a huge issue but the concealment advantage Belfast has did make it hard to close the gap on them. Definitely not a ship that could SOLO flank so the worst moments were when the DD or BB I thought was supporting me either died or turned away. (in one case gave up his smoke to the enemy which they used to punish us quickly) Only 50% of the time was chat effective in getting people to understand the idea or hold their position. After a while I just gave up relying on my team and took the safest possible position even though it meant losing opportunities to strike. Overall I am glad I struggled through the bad part as the last few matches were rewarding and did get some ROFL moments when I saw DD's run from a cap when they saw me push in even though they had the advantage. (Same as in one match when I held up a BB + 2 DD's behind an island who just couldn't push around from fear of something - by the time they did the rest of their team was dead anyway) --So any of you other Fiji captains rank out? How did you manage it? -- Did anyone else use RPF to an advantage? (I think this skill can be a curse as well if not used wisely)
  8. Seen a real drop off in the last few days...so glad I just managed to rank out last night before it gets worse --- gl to everyone left you will need the MM gods to RNGSmile on you!

    Matchmaker balancing Radar ships

    What is the most constructive way to encourage a rethink about Radar fitted ships? T5 ships coming up against premium T7 radar is just non-sensical. Quite frankly, it is ruining the game experience and I can see why some people are leaving and finding fun elsewhere.
  10. Is it possible someone seriously considers balancing Radar based ships like they do CV's? It is lethal to any Domination based game in random or ranked with there is unequal amounts of radar. In Ranked it is so common to see Atlanta's and Belfasts on one side that the outcome is almost guaranteed at the start. Really you need to look at this as now there is no point taking Schors, Myoko, Pensacola into Ranked as you almost guarantee the other side has an advantage. Basically you are dooming these ships never to be played after R10. In Randoms - the problem is compounded with new players who just do not understand the mechanic and get blasted early on. DD is stressful enough without never been able to cap due to the Belfast imbalance. Have seen a few games where there were 4 x Belfast on one side and 1 on the other. Just ludicrous.

    i think im just loosing my multiplayer drive at this point

    Agree with the invisifiring - especially cruisers and this is someone who abuses it regularly. CA's should not be able to invisifire at all. DD spotting should be 30secs after firing CA should be 60 secs before going dark

    macthmaking suggestion

    Agree with the OP -- two new problems seen lately Belfast Divisions with an Atlanta as well - other side has only Fiji CLAN divisions on one side - standard division on other side - no way that is equal 2x Radar ships like Chapayev and Edinburgh on one side -- just murder the DD's and game over Unequal DD's not only in # but in effectiveness. IJN and RU DD's just cannot contest a cap Raised a ticket too about this

    please T3 to t5 ranked battles

    Great idea but maybe they should just extend the Ranked to 30 tiers with every 5th tier a Safe Irrevocable and a jump in ship Tier. So start at T3 and end up in T8. More money for WG as people move captains or not if you just want to grind it out

    Are you ready to be "Ranked" again? - Discussion

    Curious as to why the say T6 AND T8 and not to T8. Like a hint they are going to exclude T7 this time around ......

    Are you ready to be "Ranked" again? - Discussion

    Can anyone confirm the tier split ? Rank 22 to 15 is T6-7 then below is T7-8 Really hope they make some more irrevocable ranks like R7 or R5. Even having T8 only below R5 would be make it better ....
