"Maximum wating time for random battle is no longer than 40 seconds"? Liars!!! Did those devs acctually tried their own game? I waited almost 7mins for a rondom battle as a cruiser!!! And this is not the first time happened, I waited an hour for 5 games? for real? those match dont even last 3 mins!!!!

 

not to mention if I try CVs, if they dont want us play the game they should just say it. Don't waste our time!!!

One word for you. Bots.

 

This is where you live: 2gtdwsj.jpg


Play in Co-op mode and get out of tier 1 and 2. Most players are at high tiers so its no wonder you are waiting so long. Otherwise at tier 1 you will get seal clubbed by tier 2 and 3. Once you have advanced, as long as you play in peak hours you won't have queing issues on high tiers..

Can I get this much EXP for Daily win then?post-2016739005-0-68452100-1495483427.pn

or maybe this much?1.png

you know there is a thing called daily bonus, and I dont want to waste it. I admit Im new, that's y I have to keep low tie boats from other lines! In case you forgot that new players usually dont have that many tier 4+ boats in every nation set!

Its also to do with MM. Tier 1 used to see tier 2 in MM but it's now a protected tier (please correct me if I'm wrong).

 

Tons of players at t2 atm but i doubt you'd find many at t1

You have done well to get high scores in co op, it is time for you to go up levels & play against live people.

I myself didn't know that there was a option to play against people when I first started, but when tried it, I really started learning, & took off from there.

 

You don't have to own every ship from every nation if you don't want to, for instance you can specialise on one nation, or even one type of ship, many do this, I myself love battleships (BB) & cruisers (CA) or (CL).

other people like destroyers (DD), or aircraft carriers (CV)

with your exp stars & credits you get each match, you save them up & get new ships, & you can even keep your skilled captains & transfer then to your new ships (the ships must be same nation for this)

you will soon see that you will have more fun, more stars, more credit, & more ships... You can even learn by joining a division each match with someone.... I was unsure at first but I got used to it quickly...

to up skill myself I go I to the forums here so a big welcome to you for doing this, also I watch videos from YouTube, & when I get blown up then I can click the mouse button & watch my team mates play, so I pick up skills everywhere.

 

I hope to see you out there one day in random land, once again welcome, & have fun.

 

:honoring:

my advice is IGNORE the daily bonus and play ship based on what you like. the important thing is you enjoy the game and destroy as much as enemy as possible.... and survive!

Lemme guess..... you are queuing around 1AM ~ 4AM server time, isn't it? The time where most of the players are asleep.

You are complaining/created a thread at 3AM in the morning.

Welcome to the Forum, StarDust. :)

 

I agree to Ordrazz... you can initially play around several low tiers ships and find which is more suitable to you, or explore them in Youtube ( quite a few good community contributors out there ) to analyse which type of ship you like most and advance on that tree. By focusing down one line it's easier to master the strong and weak points of the ship and get better result.

 

When I first started I used to obsess in gaining more XP by getting all daily win bonus, but soon I gave up, as it's actually not too effective as a whole.

 

Quite some time I don't play low tiers, you may take others for advice how to earn XP faster and progress faster.

 Pls give me some help, I can't access youtube or twitch easily here, do you have anyother place I can check? I would like play cruiser since they can do almost everything, but I dont know which one is the right line for me, I need help from exprienced players, so that I can understand which cruiser can be played as jack of trades,EX. gd AA, decent firepower, ok torpedo, that you can play as a long wolf, so you dont have to be set as a dead man when someone in your team died

Difficult to say, cruiser aren't good as lone wolf, actually all classes will perform better with help from other classes.

 

When I first joined, another experienced player told me before. IJN>KM>USN, but that was like one year plus ago. Well, I try to explain a bit here, but personally I'm only interested in German CA, and now I shift mostly to battleship.

 

IJN: they are much stealthier compared to their other nation CA. Good HE, good torp but bad torp angle (mainly fire to the stern). Down side is slightly higher citadel, rudder and engine broken easier. Zao is till considered as the best top tier cruiser around. Good armour protection, good guns, good torp.

 

USN: concealment quite good. Their AP has a better penetration quality when.the target is angled (less chance of bounce), got good radar, good AA. However from tier 6 and above there is no torp, and their gun range is shorter than others, their shells fly much slower than others. Des Moine in good hand is very dangerous to enemy especially DD.

 

KM: average concealment value, good AP alpha damage but when enemy angled (which happens frequently in high tier as now players are much experienced compared to one year ago) inconsistent damage output, one of the weakest HE shells among CA. Torp are good in low tiers but at High tier are sort of average, but with good torp angle. Hindenburg is been labelled by Jack of All Trades by several community contributors, and personally I played a lot with her, but... not easy to carry the game with her. Oh, german Hydro has better range compared to other nations.

 

 

British and French, and Soviets... Well, this I need others who has more experience to explain to you as I have little to nil hands on on them.

 

In all, each tree has a or few weaker ships in them. A lot say Ibuki (tier 9 IJN CA) is the Archiles tendon of IJN CA line, while numberg, and pensacola are the biggest hindrance of advancing German and US cruiser tree respectively.

 

As far as I know, Japanese cruiser is the most popular of all cruiser lines, but it really depends on yourself, try them out. Another way if you get to download fast enough, you can always try out in public test server. But bear in mind due to different player base (asia vs world) and a lot of people trying new/funny stuffs, PT server performance doesn't always translate completely to live server performance (I mean certain ship)

Oh forgot to say. In my opinion concealment and agility (speed and rudder response) are the main points in the survivability of a cruiser. You can engage enemy at closer range (like when wanna take down DD) or disengage from a superior for (BB ) with good concealment.

 

And oh, about AA... USN as a whole good AA with defensive fire consumables PLUS radar. KM CA has fairly good AA but the defensive fire for AA boost is competing same slot for hydro. British has good AA but no defensive fire. IJN generally bad AA.

Of course, there are a few ways to spec a cruisers, if you prioritise one, you have to let go something else. For instance, you can spec A Des Moines full AA from modules and captain skills, but you might lose rate of fire of main guns, sacrifice concealment. Same as Hindenburg.

Hi
XStarDustZephyrX ,

 

From my general experience in cruisers, the best jack of all trades are the German cruisers , but I havent played Japanese cruisers apart from the multicolored ARP ones (higher tier but don't worry for now)

I can recommend the german ones, Dresden & Kohlberg are quite snappy, but no torpedo's, they come in at tier 4 Karlsruhe, tier 5 Konigsberg is the best I think..

 

The Russian cruisers are quite excellent too, but not as good with torpedoes as they have a very short range, but the Russians are good at burning with HE...

 

USA are OK I guess but I have only a couple of cruisers, I know st Louis is good, lots of guns....

 

Dont know about the British ones, but I know in higher tiers they can be can be quite tricky to destroy...

 

Japanese ones seem to be great with torpedoes..

 

Don't know much about French yet because I've only got one...

 

Because I am mainly a battleship man, I have a lot of ships, so I don't get to play them all....

 

If you cant get to YouTube much, the best way is to watch what others do by clicking on the right mouse after youvecbeen sunk, & watch how they play, try to pick up pointers by observation if you can.

 

 

If you press z after shooting, your camera will follow your shells, that way you can see where they land...

when in binoculars you see the cross hair, when you aim at a ship, the numbers on the crosshair are estimates of the enemy speeds, in seconds, which means if you aim at a battleship for example, you would put the front of the ship at the number 5 or 6, so the shells will take about 6 seconds to get to where the bow of the enemy ship will be.

 

For firing at cruisers, you would put the aim about 10 12, because cruisers are faster, & destroyers, usually a minimum of 15, but can be faster, so then roll the mouse wheel back one click & that helps compensate more for their speed, so aim about 10 ish.

 

when you hold down Ctrl ( I think because I'm not on a computer system right now), you will see a little clock, this tells you the distance the enemy ship is from you, so you can line up the shots with the distance that is shown on the screen.

 

if you see a DD or cruiser turn away from you, that means they have launched torpedoes, so you will need to turn into them to minimise them hitting you.

 

Some battleships have torpedoes at higher tiers.

 

don't be afraid to ask questions, if people call you noob, then don't get upset at it because its not worth it, because we have & indeed still are noobs ourselves... They are just being cranky....

 

Ask other players as you go along too, also click between fleet ships when your sunk, so you can pick up pointers & watch the handling of the ships.

 

 

Hopefully this helps in some way..

 

Cheers

Wow Ordrazz, never thought will meet another German CA captain here :)

 

Yup StarDust, those are some good point from Ordrazz, just add on: if you want to always have the shell flight time available when you zoom in on enemy, go to control setting and choose the "alternate view mode" or something ( sorry no computer in front of me now)

 

Hunt for Bismarck.... Well, it'd be easier to go for premium account, then focus on base XP, modified XP, and damage. Repeat them to get repeated stars, though you won't get the crate second time you complete the same task. Others are kind of hit n miss so don't waste time unless you have extra slot for those tasks.

 

After you got the Bismarck, then go back to complete other tasks you haven't done before, collect those emblems to get Bismarck fancy premium camo.

 

 

Try your best, if you got assess to computer daily, you should be able to do so. But bear in mind of those requirements, not mistaken you need tier 5 and above and some tasks ask for specific ships, so be careful not to waste your time.

 

Some tasks from different mission level can be done together, at least from previous campaign I did, so just keep an open eye.

 

Just curious, your nickname, the Zephyr part, is it from a game?

Thank you, well, I looked through the bismark campaign, it looks like I have to get the Hood, so maybe Im not even gonna past the first lvl since they ask someship other than German line.

  and about my name, Zephyr is from the ancient Greek, Im a multiligual, I was thinking something means "wind", and this word is west wind in ancient Greek, since it's a wind blow from west in Spring season, so it also means mild wind.

(I know it's weird when you go to battlefield and try to name your ship something mild. Glad I was not thinking about water too, otherwise it gonna be something like Aqua that would make the name sounds even hard)

Hope this helps

 Thanks so much, I did not know there would be that many tricks that the tutorial didn't mention at all. would you tell me what batttleship I should look for first? Is Bismark worth my time for it? I know its only tier 7 even it was one of the most famous Battleship in the German history!!!(one shot Hood, just fired one shot, the pride of Royal Navy is gone, turely remarkable )........

Hiya again,

 

to get the best out of your ships & yourself, start at the bottom & work your way up, that way you can learn your ships characteristics, learn & develop your own play style, & you will learn how to predict what other players can or will do, & how they handle they're ships too, & then you will start to pick up on mistakes from both you & them, & you end up training yourself...

 

for German battleships, since you are low tier, good old Nassau is the start, leearn how to rotate the guns when you start, so you know which side if the map you will go, read the minimap to where you see the enemies heading, there's a tiny cogwheel on the top of the minimap, which changes its settings, it can show yo your own secondary gun range, last known position occenemy ships, as range etc. This is very handy features, also in general settings I set up detailed ribbons which shows what your shells do when they hit the enemy, also I set up damage so I can tell how much damage I do during the game....

 

also in port you can see what the armour layout of each ship is, so you can work out the best place to put your shells in....

 

Don't worry about Bismarck, as he s in the tech tree so you will get it later on...  Learn to walk first then you can fly...

 

My best,& most favorite German BB is Koenig, it is the most versatile ship in the game, I always kill lots of DD, planes & other ships in mine, I even take on nagatos

 

In captain skills when you click on captains heads in port, always make sure you put on torpedo aquisition , because that helps see torpedoes coming earlier, so you can avoid them.... Also module incapacitated so to y don't get disabled as much

 

there's so much to learn & practice, its really fun.

Yes, I love my German cruisers, as well as my premium Russian ones, esp krazny krym... People think its crap, but I have a terrible lot of fun with it for that reason, they dont expect anyone to be good at it lol

 

Konigsberg is great all rounder, esp hunting DDs, or chasing other cruisers....

don't use nurnburg a lot, but I like York.... When I survive hipper I'm usually surprised, tricky to get the hang of it I think...

 

I love the Kohlberg, dds hate me using that ....

 

Emden is is good too

 

 

But as I said, battleships is my number one, & because I have so many ships its hard to play them all....

 

Great to see another German cruiser man too...

Well Ordrazz, I personally more to Hindenburg > Hipper > Roon. The others I have difficulty in making them work.

I might wanna revisit them (lower tiers) after patch 0.6.6 and see how they perform :)

Yeah now I'm BB main as well, GK, Bismarck, Tirpitz, Gneiesenau , then Missouri and Montana :)

 

Edit: and thanks for the explanation StarDust. It just the word I saw somewhere in another game, never thought it has such a meaning :)
