  1. After much pain and suffering having finally reached Rank 5: and now can't even play. Been in MM queue for over 20 mins, can only see 3 other ships waiting.

    Death of the destroyers role.

    I've played t10 DDs a fair bit recently with fairly low success. My thoughts are the following: Speed matters more. Haragumo and Daring are simply too slow now, and cannot protect themselves from CV; they cannot keep up with allied ships and it's too easy to get caught out of position. Gearing and Z52 are only marginally better, but at least they have really effective AA. Haragumo used to be one of my best ships, and was always fun; now I am having no luck at all and feel like a liability to the team. Conversely, Khaba is fine. I basically just ignore CVs, keep AA on and run and gun as usual. For some reason CVs don't seem to pick on me and I can still rack up huge damage if I survive. I am just hoping CV numbers will dwindle eventually, I'm not enjoying matches nearly as much now.

    You Nerfed a Premium Warship ?????????

    Agree. I shot down 37 Shokuku planes yesterday in one battle - without Manual AA . . .

    Ranked Battles Retreat

    I'm enjoying ranked - mostly in FDG and Kitakaze. Agree there are a few too many brainless Musashis hiding behind islands in the corner of the map while their team dies. It's like they don't know the rules . . . and I think abolishing the saved-star would fix a few problems. But, it's mostly been fun, salt-free - and have had some glorious CQC in my secondary build FDG that has made it all worth it.

    Ranked off to a boring start again

    I've played a few matches in FDG with full secondary build and had an absolute blast - haven't seen more than one Musashi per team . . . . and they don't survive once the game forces them into CQC. Imo this is shaping up to be a great season of ranked.

    CV rework day 1 observations

    I'm trying to like it. But some of the changes have been too much. For example: My Texas is now anaemic against planes. 3.5km medium bubble, no long range bubble > that's with a 19point captain and all AA upgrades. I played against two t5 carriers and shot 8 down. Even worse is Groz. WIth 19 point captain (all aa skills except manual AA) and upgrades, I shot down a single Saipan torp bomber, with DFAA active, and not one single dive bomber. I just don't get it. Previously these ships were unique due to strong AA, and had other drawbacks (texas has no spotter plane; groz is a fat cow that eats pens from across the map). I kinda disappointed by this. When the only T10 AA DD, with DFAA active, can't shoot down a single T8 dive bomber, something seems broken to me. Edit: had a 2-cv game with Montana . . . 3 planes shot down; this is total BS

    Russian DDs - Khaba line - still competitive?

    Khaba is great if there are 3 or more DDs on your team, or a cv. Then you don't need to worry about caps or scouting and can support and harrass enemy radar cruisers and BBs, and any DD that gets spotted. At 12-13km you are nearly impossible to hit for enemy BBs and can hold off a group of them with near impunity. Great fun. If you are the only DD on your team, or one of two, it's a bit of a disaster as you can't cap or scout very effectively, and the team is at a real disadvantage. Can still have a lot of fun - but probably on losing side.

    Try Your Luck Container

    Agreed. I used to always take TYL - and probably got 15-30 SCs over the year or two (including a few ships before they nerfed them hard) . . . but the the 2018 ones were all 100 X flag . . . not worth it. Now I go for resources every time. I can see why they don't discount the T10 premium cammos they just break the economy. I've bought a bunch for my T10s and credits haven't been an issue since. Think I have about 200 million or so now and nothing to spend it on.

    Why would you?

    Weird season: I've played 3 battles, won all 3, topped my team twice with high calibres, haven't said a word to anyone except "gg": so far this morning 7 reports, no compliments. Do people not like my name or something?
  10. Mister_Teatime

    Didn't even say a thing...

    Lol - sorry . . . See you around!

    Didn't even say a thing...

    I'm starting to wish there was an option to be the only human player in co-op. At the moment either a DD kills every enemy on your flank before you fire a shot and it's boring and expensive, or you dominate and get 5 reports. I only play in the morning now when there are fewer other players around.

    German Captain Skills: Graf Spee to Gr. Kurfust.

    I've gone full secondary build for GK and no regrets. Most fun I've had in the game. AR, BFT, AFT, Manual Secs. I find I probably benefit from it in around 80% of matches (the ones I'm not HE spammed to death in opening minutes). Worth it.
  13. Just had two matches with 2 or 3 Conqs in the opposing team. They spammed HE along with a Henri and Hindy and I was dead in both matches before I could even return fire. 3 fires > heal > 3 fires . . . And it seems to be contagious. One match the NC and the Republique were also spamming me with HE. Is there any way to counter? Seriously, should I just hide and hope they die? MM should limit Conqs to one per team. There is nothing fun about facing them.

    Black Friday Containers

    I bought a single container: Atago B. Thanks WG 🙂

    Do you Like the New Mechanism for BB AP against DD?

    I like the change. It's not the most elegant solution but hopefully will increase DD survivability a little at high tiers, which is a good thing imo.
