Hi, so this is a combination brag thread and some pointers on how to play the Neptune.
Edit: cant seem to post pictures... will try to fix between battles.
My Neptune is AA spec - max range of 7.2km (without flags) means that enemies carriers who cant see you sitting in smoke at a cap will fly their planes too close and not immediately know why they are losing planes. This means your carrier gets an advantage to help your team win games. But I kept Main Battery Mod 3 instead of the higher AA DPS - didnt want to gimp my main weapons too much. In addition, I went for the larger smoke captain skill - it means you can pop smoke earlier without having to wait to slow down as much, as well as gives you more room to move about within your smoke. I am happy with the choice, even if it isnt 'optimal'.
The second is to always be near islands - this will reduce the number of directions enemies can sneak up to you, fewer directions torps can be fired into your smoke, and more cover for when your smoke runs out. I cannot emphasise enough how important the premium smoke consumable is - when your smoke is down, you only have to hide for 1 minute, and this is the difference between life and death. You dont have to use gold to buy this consumable (I use credits).
Anyway, happy for other players to post thier tips - I am always learning how to play this floating citadel of a target better :p
