So you're saying I should take my time with the Nagato... :unsure:

 

It's actually a very good battleship, worth getting to. Amagi is the one you want to take your time with though, because the tier 9 plays totally different and is the source of much contention in the IJN tree.

 

As a pretty strict BB player since beta, I would like to point out that I think torpedos are fine, HE damage is fine -fire chance and/or fire damage notwithstanding-, carriers are fine, and generally cruiser RoF is fine.

 

My tendency to think my team will follow me into the jaws of glory, however, is what's wrong.

Yeah not looking forwards to Izumo. That might be one time, I whip out the $$$ and free XP past that thing.

the enemy, and bash him over the head.

The Izumo is not for everyone, but it will teach you how to use the Yamato effectively, I would not recommend skipping it.

Load up a tier 7 or below and it should be no problem.

Didn't do too bad I think for being outmatched the way I was.

Looks like Tier X players smell an opportunity to milk tier 8 games. :hmm:

I don't snipe in my Yamato, my secondary gunners have to work for a living.

 

But the average player does that, yes. Which is why I wish she'd get a dispersion nerf.

I am the Hull of my Torpedo. Steel is my body and Oxygen is my blood. I have caused over one thousand hull breaches. Unknown to flames, nor known to penetrate. I have withstood pain to launch many torpedoes. Yet those guns will never shoot anything.
So, as I pray-- Unlimited Torpedo Works

Riiiiiiiight. Cruisers ... Cruisers ... What do those look like again?

 

But cruisers are super popular and overpowered compared to battleships.

At the moment I have played 30% BB, 35% CA/L and 35% DD.

 

I was thinking of trying to get them all to 33.3%...

 

Perhaps now is not the time.

I'm hesitant to play my cruisers with the current amount of BBs in queue; however, now might be a good time to brush the dust off my DDs.

 

   Yep- I tried that last night in my Budyonny.  THAT was painful...  (got sick of waiting and waiting and etc in line to play Arizona, and grabbed this.  Instant match, but not a fun one for me,lol)

 

  As for Lert's OP- whenever I get to one of those kill x# of y ships missions, the Gods tease me by waving them under my nose; allowing me to shoot them to pieces; and letting someone ELSE swoop in for the easy kill...  EVERY time.   Makes me wish I was a cat, so I could barf up a hairball into their favorite shoes- preferably while they were eating nearby.

 

 I'd rather get your kind of mm- it's less frustrating!

Actually, except for the CV disparity, that looks like a pretty awesome MM. Sure wish I could bring a Kutuzov to an MM like that... 

----------

Still needed: (1) a NO CV button for the MM (2) Remove Shatter (3) a button for demounting all flags (4) the icon in the status bar to signal someone wants to div/chat with you

Hmmmmmm. Not a bad idea.

Sure wish you had, and on the red team. Also hope you wouldn't mind me sending you a few superheavy Mk 8's at muzzle velocity. :)
