Episode 35: HMS Hood, Kaga, Tirpitz secondaries and more with iChase

 

iChase joins the podcast crew on a momentous day. All four of us received the Hood and Kaga to test mere hours before the podcast and we share our first impressions of the initial work in progress ship iterations. We hope for some Hood buffs and are floored by how good the Kaga is. Following that, we talk about our initial impressions of the French Cruisers on live, and the changes to the Tirpitz secondaries and Des Moines deck armor.

With a relatively light news week in World of Warships, the podcast crew and special guest Business6 talk about some deeper topics. We explore the benefits of taking breaks from Warships and why we come back. Thoughtful discussion about the effect of giving out a T8 Bismarck in the upcoming campaign results in some interesting conclusions. The upcoming ranked season is explored with the possibility of it being Tier 6. Finally, we discuss the importance of late game DD play and how to survive in a DD.

Episode 39: New Kidd on the Block: USS Kidd and DeGrasse First Impressions (WiP)

 

Hi listeners! In this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast we discuss an assortment of new premium ships coming to the game in the near future. Breaking down ships that we are currently testing and reviewing, as well as a bit of speculation on three ships that will hopefully make there appearance soon in game.

Getting into our show discussion we start off with USS Kidd, a Fletcher class Destroyer that has been slotted at Tier 8 instead of 9. The reasoning of this is that it has one less torpedo rack, trading torpedoes for improved anti aircraft capabilities. We discuss at length our current experiences with the ship and give our thoughts on how it could be improved as well as its current standing in the random meta and possibilities for competitive play. The next ship we are testing is the French Cruiser DeGrasse. A solid cruiser that each cast member believes is a solid premium that we feel, is ready to ship to the public right now. We talk about its strengths and weaknesses and talk about French Cruiser play in general.

Moving on from the current premium ships that we are testing, the cast gets into the big and highly anticipated ships, and by big ships, we really mean ENTERPRISE! We talk about the Big E and carrier game play, matchmaking, and how even non CV players will be getting this ship just based on the fact that its the Enterprise. The cast also talks about Admiral Markarov which is the Nurnberg but as it was when sold to the Russians and HMS Gallant is a Royal Navy Destroyer. Which is a ship featured in an upcoming movie about the massive evacuation at Dunkirk. We discuss these ships and move onto our final topic for the show.

The Sink the Bismarck campaign discussion rounds out the podcast with the sale of HMS Hood which is now available via a staggered bundle system. Much like how Graf Spee was handled, players who were familiar with that will understand this system and campaign. We talk about the merits of the sale and remind players that you have 19 days to complete this run. The 100 dollar bundle is brought up and debated as we go over the pluses and minuses for making such a purchase, and break down what the bundle contains.
