First, why do I keep dying in Kuma? It's huge citadel makes shooting hard while 8km torp range is fine but I cant get to 8km without getting deleted.

 

Also want to ask why my team always try to be sniper in tier 5 game? Because it always seems that I'm the one leading the charge. Wyoming vs Kongo is so fair lol

1. Kuma is a super destroyer leader, dont fire first and apply copious amount of camo and concealment

2. This means u WASD

3. 65mm of armor means be kind to the bear

 

4. Its a camping infection that has spread to low tier

5. Wyoming and Kongo, Kongo is good and more than a match

Hoe to kuma :

1. Try to avoid line of sight with bbs

2. Engage enemy CA/cl with mere impunity

3. 8km is a huge torpedo range at t4. You are not supposed to stealth torp. You are supposed to ambush or defensive torp

Wiggle often, driving in a straight line is suicide. One advantage the Kuma has is it's low profile. Big BB's will have an issue hitting you if you keep changing course all the time because you're sorta small for a cruiser.

What should I do when there are camper team?

 

Rush to CV and BOMB em all......

 

why worried about Kuma? its just low tier ship, of course you cannt do much. just let some other ship tanking. when you are the lower tier, just firing at maximum range. its work for me....

 

dont like camper meta? play CV or go yolo with German BB #1

I'm only grinding Wyoming because I want to play CV :trollface:

As for kuma my team doesn't do anything for me, instead I lose half my health scouting.... oh and then we lose that flank.

 

Yolo German BB? Very tempted to try but kinda sick playing BB due to Wyoming grind

Kuma is amazing...

First, division up with 2 other Kumas...

Second, focus fire and have a fire party with your smol frands...

Third, win.

 

I do this with my brother and dad, and whilst we usually die, we usually have at least 2 in top 3 and win the match...

 

The whole thing works even better if one of your Kumas is a USN or SN DD as they smoke for you...

Just saying, IJN BB tier 4~5 are Cruiser with BB HP

GERMAN BB are different! why? here is the reason :

1. #1 German science

2. Tanky armor

3. Good damage

4. Good secondary

5. Yolo able

 

Cons :

1. beware of CV bomber

2. low accuracy, bad for sniper

3. so much German BB already.....

Until you meet a Konigsberg who knows how to to use AP and she can literally delete Kuma with one salvo of AP.

I only see Kuma as food. She has been long outclassed by newer cruisers.................... and destroyers.

French paper ships are better than Kuma IMO.

What i hate about Kuma is that gun placement, which is quite OK if you actively wiggling.

But...It is a perfect newbie trap to tell how bad broadsiding is.

That also telling how not to torp your own team mate.

The armor is horrible and the sub systems are easily broken, even when dueling with say, Isyaslav, tier 4 Russian DD.

You'll find anything on that ship is easily broken, like rudder, engine, gun, torp launcher etc etc.

 

The pro about Kuma are the weapon potential,

She has the same RoF with the old Des Moines, combined with Japanese brand HE; A lot of fire and damage;

High concealment, and long torp.

 

Don't worry the next tier Furutaka is a nice ship, although she has longer reload.

Not all ship of the line is good, so be patient.

I wont deny that some people would like to play Kuma, because it fit them.

But if you're not, well, i'd say you're not always alone.

I think you may be playing Kuma wrong?

She's agile and quick, don't drive in straight lines. You have 3 forward guns withing a small arc of each other, Konigs shouldn't be able to hit you and should die burning in the fire of a thousand fires...

 

IF Konigs gets a lucky hit, that's what the other two Kumas are for.

 

IF you have USN/SN DD, you shouldn't be seen inside smoke...

Ironically, i'm the said Konigsberg that decimated Kuma along with 2 other CLs that are not Karl.

Kuma will never ever win a straight up gun fight with a Konig due to its AP being ridiculously bad at penetrating armor, beside being one tier lower means she should avoid fighting head on with it. Konig AP have no problem penetrating angled Kuma unless she is running away.

Also Konig have no problem showing 6 guns without broadside to your measly 3 , you have a death wish if you want to engage it without help.

So yeah, I expect that to [Content Removed] a Konigs
