The best I can describe these 'tricks', is that they focus on maximizing the strengths of your ship to exploit the weaknesses of the red ships you will encounter so that you win engagements and objectives. At the same time, it also encompasses running away, when you can, to cover your ship's weaknesses.

Over the course of thousands of games, I find this works really well at inflating stats.

However!

For me anyways, this gets to be repetitive and drab after many games.

 

What I am looking for is a new, fun, maybe even derpy, way to play WoWs.

In other games, this typically meant using derpy or weak weapons for lols, but I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing this in WoWs. (e.g. using sniper rifle as a CQC weapon and shotgun as a sniping weapon)

 

Any suggestions?

French cruisers. HE dash and run with the occasional wall of torp skill.

Krasny krym with a 19 point moskva or Khab captain. It has range to be effective without being instantly deleted vs tier 7s. The shell arcs work well over islands and with DE it's a good fire chance.

 

Plus people get sad when they are sunk by a krym. Farm those tears.

 

Alternatively, play low tier battleships and fire only HE. Very effective against low tier cruisers. My ishizuchi has The same number of witherers as my Kiev:)

To be honest that's the best thing to do for most ships, I guess if you're tired of hiding try German BBs?

Why Umikaze, if you could get a Kiev? Tier 8 brawling is a lot more fun

Torpedoes don't have any friends. So they will kill everything in their path. To prevent team kills we should all watch out where we fire those fishes. That means each and everyone of us, DDs of the second line!

Beacause getting a QQE with Kiev is not something unique but I am yet to see a QQE in Umikaze.

Speaking of nonstandard ships for running secondary builds, Kaga might also be an amusing choice whenever she comes out.

Play the Bismark and turn off AA/secondaries or Tirpitz plus run with a torp spec.

World of Warplanes needs more players.

So much has been lost, so much forgotten. So much pain, so much blood. And for what? I wonder. The past tempts us, the present confuses us, and the future frightens us. And our lives slip away, moment by moment, lost in that vast, terrible in-between. But there is still time to seize that one last, fragile moment. To choose something better, to make a difference.  -- Babylon 5

Another thing I do - If there are no missions going on:

Sort by tier and take every ship in the collection out until I get one win in Random in the order they are in.

Usually takes me a week to do them all.  Last time I did this, I had 50-ish ships.  Now I have 86.

You can also go back to your roots... start with Tier 1 ships, zero point commanders. Play carriers? No? Play them. If you have gaps in your tech trees, go grind them. Do simple things too.. say you're in a DD... pick a non-DD ship on the red team and give yourself X time to find and kill them. Might play havoc with your stats but it's different.
