Sink Cruisers?  I'd say the Kongo should do the job.

And if you can't GUN them down, RUN them down --- and ram them


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

I think the obscene number of battleships and the numerous complaints about them is validation enough.

 

Just get rid of them. It'll only make things better.

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

 

Wow not looking all that great for a tier 8 BB and the CAs have all but, vanished. Maybe a division with someone whom is brave enough to run a cruiser ? It could work.

If not Lert , look me up and i will run a Cruiser with you.

Is there a reason for me to be positive?

 

Does negativity detract from a valid point?

 

No to both.

 

No it just makes you sound like a mewling whiner.

Cruisers don't get mirrored matchmaking, unfortunately (neither do bottom-tier BBs).

The Amagi's a Battlecruiser :trollface:

 

It's a glorified battleship let's be honest.

 

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.

You still haven't given any actual reason why my argument isn't valid, yet you call me the unjustified whiner.

 

Nice.

There's a way to criticize without asking blatantly whiny questions EVERY SINGLE TIME. Just makes you a broken record of hate and discontent.

According to another thread on the front page there is little point to playing a bb because CAs have so much influence on the game. Gotta love the forums.

People don't respond to nice in the modern age, and they don't listen unless something is repeated ad infinitum.

 

What problem was solved by being nice or positive? None.

 

How many problems are addressed when they're only brought up once? None.

(Unless you're referring to Mission 2, Task 8, Lert, which requires it to be completed in Hood) I'd say the irony in getting that MM is that it seems most don't realize it's easier to sink cruisers, in a cruiser... :unsure:

Literally speaking, one can only run into Lert if one is not alert.
Ultimate BBQQ Recipe: 1 BB(the bigger, the juicier), 2 or more Cruisers and/or Destroyers, HE spam(apply generously), no salt required. Smoking your BBQQ is optional, but it adds lots of extra flavor.  Melt for 3-10 minutes and enjoy! Serve with fish for an even more exotic taste!

seeing as how YOU are the only one whining about BBs I am going to to ahead and just tell you to play another game...
the NUMBER one complaint I think it DDs and their Torps and disappearing acts... Second would be CVs...
Third are DEF cruisers spamming HE forEVER and last, BBs...
I am not gonna go pull numbers but having been here for over two years I can safely say I think I am right....
YOu need to get better at the game I think...

MM looks like it's favoring your opponents there.

 

This brings to mind a potentially interesting little game or experiment, though probably only interesting to mine.

 

Show three representative images for each of several battles. The first image would the MM and the second and third would be ship positions/formations for each team 90 seconds after the battle commenced. Based on those three images guess which team won. I suspect good, experienced players could guess correctly by a remarkably high percentage, overall. 


I'm a spudman, I got eyes all around.
