OP you make my brain hurt. What you want is already in game, it's called going "quiet on the guns", a.k.a. STOP SHOOTING.

 

Try spending more time in a mid to high cruiser that isn't Cleveland, and count the number of "oh [censored], a battlewagon, I'm way too [censored] close" moments you have as a stealth spec BB pops up under 13km and opens fire (at your exposed broadside because you had no idea he was there and you were making sure you didn't give the guy you saw any good shots at you) as you were happily blazing away at his buds 15+ km away. After you do that get back with us as to whether or not you wish to amend your statement here.

I think we need to put a periscope on them then they also can be the submarines that we all don't want in the game

 

And I must admit I am bias 

I've seen way too many buffs to every ship except the Destroyers which I love to play making me sour to anything that's not fixing this game more

 

See I used to be a true blue water sailor and I know true ships don't act like anything like this game

Considering it's his first post...he's probably just trolling us for reactions. :trollface:

No I understand he might be trolling I do that myself from time to time

 

But it's a point I do like to talk about assuming that everybody will break out stat books on armor emplacement and gun speeds and turret rotation and ect ect but has anybody looked up turning radius  or acceleration factors or stopping factors I don't think so

I'm sure nobody's ever heard anybody say "that thing turns like a battleship" or man that thing" stops like a battleship"

it's not a good thing

 

Truly soon as that Battleship even thinks about coming over the horizon I see it

Where is my invisibility consumable for my BB?  I want to be able to go around without being detected, sneak up on that DD and blast him point blank and he never knew I was there.  Or cap with immunity of being spotted.  Oh, yeah, and the ability to spot anyone on the map with a range and accuracy to match.  :trollface:

I read that entirely wrong. I thought you were talking about euthanizing babies for a second.

If you want you can get a Missouri's detection down to 12.3 but you give up something to get it.  And need to be more aware.  I don't think the BBs need anything like this.  Heck I had my NC down to 11.8 detection.  That is a fun ship.  It is a matter what build works best for you.  No need for Smoke Screens, if the team is playing well together a friendly RN Cruiser or DD should help you disengage while they do to.  There are DD drivers out there that try to help, I know I try to when I play my IJN DDs.  I think we need to find a way to help promote better team play.

Tier VIII NC can be built for 11.8km detection range, which can be a bit of surprise butt s--.

Well it's not like every other classes had to give up something to get other things after all. But right now i think a stealth build for USN BB still the best for them since they have small guns amoung other BB. They are really good to delete cruiser but sometime they are pretty meh against BB. But yeah, it's always nice to have some kind of team play, especially when you're in a French cruiser targetted by all BB coz you have paper armor xD
