    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?

    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.
  7. 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.

    High tier struggles

    High tier gameplay is a lot more passive than t5-7. My advice for Buffalo (and note my WR is only around 50%, and I've never played Buffalo - I leveled to DM via Balti at t9, so take it with a grain of salt) is to take your time (e.g. experiment with not shooting for ten minutes one match and see what happens, or only sail at 1/4 speed etc) and be mindful of your concealment at all times, and the number of ships, particularly BBs that are aiming at you. Never sail in a straight line or at the same speed while detected. You can support the team by radaring caps from cover, and safe HE spamming from behind islands early on, and save your ap until later in the match for finishing off low hp BBs and CAs. The longer you survive in the match the more of a threat you become. With Iowa (one of the few ships I actually have a decent WR in) I think the speed is a double edged sword. It is too easy to get dangerously out of position early on and focused. My advice is to leave your throttle on 1/4 for the first 5 mins and see where the match is going. The speed will be a huge asset later on if you are still alive. You have decent concealment. Use it to disengage if you are being focused by cruisers, and just message your team to say you need a few repair cycles to restore all that fire damage. Be patient, particularly early. Enemy HE spammers behind islands are only a threat if their team has a points advantage and they are defending a cap. If you are winning or it's even then don't engage. They will come out into the open eventually. Glhf

    New Ranked Season

    I'm looking forward to it > much more interesting than another t10 event. And will be great to play T5s again without always coming up against T7s. Even Emerald could be fun. Some great premiums to play: my Okhotnik, Gremy, Kamikaze, Murmansk, Texas . . . all have been gathering dust. Can't wait.
  12. As per title. This really bugs me - I love Arms Race. So much fun. But am trying to grind special upgrades and nothing I do in Arms Race counts towards them. Is this a bug? If not, what is the logic? Please change this

    Most DD players are bad

    Triggered. Would be funnier if it wasn't so accurate. The number of BBs pinging me on mini map, demanding I cap when we call all see a radar Mino and/or Worcester well positioned defending it (while the BB is 15km from cap sailing in other direction, or worse, huddled behind an island with no possibility of shooting at anyone) does my head in . . . "Noob DD", "report our noob DD", "do your job DD". . .

    Please remove the karma system

    As above. It is really ruining my fun these days. My karma has gone from around 150 to 80 in the past few months and I can't for the life of me figure out what I am doing differently or wrong. I haven't been abusing anyone. I don't yolo. I have good games and bad games. Tonight played a Montana game, 6 kills 200k damage, 2500 base exp, received 1 compliment (i gave out 4). Next game didn't go so well, did 80k damage, got burned to death by a Worcester: 3 reports (I didn't report anyone, and complimented the enemy Worcester). These days, every time I play a t10 DD I get reported whether we win or lose, whether I play well or badly, whether I cap or flank. Every time I play Cleveland I get reported. Seriously, what is the point of it other than now just making people feel bad? You can't learn from it. WG if you are listening, please just get rid of it - it serves no meaningful purpose. At least give us the option of hiding notifications and the number and the option to report/compliment. Although I know I should just ignore it - I find it impossible.
