    Bourgogne or Mecklenburg?

    The Burger. The Le Royale with Cheese. The Bourgogne without a doubt.

    Tokachi, is it me?

    Well, you're not alone in this. Tokachi is a very good ship, for the tier at least.

    How good is your internet? You could try the Nvidia GeForce Now cloud gaming thingie to play Warships. I'm pretty sure they have a free option (ads every so often?) to have a test and see how your internet/computer handles it. If you can play Warships with your internet, you'd be able to use the GeForce Now thingie to run the game at much higher graphics :)

    Back when I first started, if you had an issue with something, Wargaming and their supporters would use "git gud" as the standard response. Some people are probably using it sarcastically, some probably not. Wargaming hasn't used that term now since the Graf Zep debacle IIRC for obvious reasons.
  6. There are other ships beside the St. Vincent? Incomparable is nice too. Duncan isn't a free exp sink either. .... I've seen the Gneisenau played with brilliance, unfortunately I can't hit crap with it.... If you can connect, they punish. Her speed can get you into trouble. The torps and secondaries can suprise some players. Good armour.

    Tokachi, is it me?

    I like mine quite a bit, it's a fun ship.

    Mainz B

    Yep, spec her for fire and don't waste time with IFHE. The poor HE damage is more than compensated by the fact that you are not halving your fire chance and the good penetration. One of my favorite ships.

    Tokachi, is it me?

    I really like this ship. Don't know if it is a good ship or not but the fun factor is really there. I like it because the playstyle is unlike most other Japanese ships. For a light CL, It is too slow, not stealthy enough, reload is two slow and is made of tinfoil. That said it seems to work for me. Good DD hunter and the torps are useful. Torp reload booster is a waste though. Anyone else feel this way?

    Bourgogne or Mecklenburg?

    Wasn't too keen to get a German bb until I watched 2 videos in a row from TOPTIER on YouTube. It's a very accurate 12 gun ship. Aim for mid belt and you get 10 to 12 k salvos. HE is great too. It can kite and hold a flank.

    Z-31

    to get to GJM. Your a specialist destroyer intended to go after cruisers. Z-31 and GJM have decent penetration on their shells and improved penetration angles(60-67.5 ricochet). And they have the best gun accuracy of any ship class in the game. Play them sorta like light cruisers, don't cap early(mid late game) and support other DDs with your accurate long range fire. Z-31 isn't very good, but the like gets better after GJM. Also use AP on broadside BBs and CA/CLs, they do signifcant amounts of penetration damage(or citadels on cruisers if your close enough).

    Carriers and Subs - your killing this game.

    Ouch. That does NOT say much for Yodo. ...Yeeeaahhhh, the balance department is ummm....questionable at best. 38s reload on what is effectively a Tier V New York with the same number of guns and Tier III AP penetration to boot? 34.2s reload for 356mm guns on what is effectively a Tier VI ship shoehorned into Tier VII? 40s reload on a Tier VIII BB with NO way of mitigating it, AND with gimped AP shells to boot? 40s reload times PERIOD?(seriously, who the heck thought THAT was a good idea?!) 72s turret traverse times?! (these all need to be abolished.) 6km range on sub conventional torpedoes so your only option IS to shotgun with them, thereby causing the shotgunning issue in the first place? AA that attacks the LAST plane in the squadron, and never the attacking planes? (HOPEFULLY the closed testing for AA changes will address this! Hopefully.) Yeah, and this is just the BAREST glimpse into balance issues that WoWs has (that Wargaming has not even attempted to address).

    I really don't understand the mentality behind the "git gud" responses. A long-time player makes an honest, heartfelt statement. No bitterness, no rants. You're free to disagree with the man on substance but why in God's name would you attack him? That kind of reply makes me think you're part of the triple "well done" crowd.

    The New Meta

    I can stand a sub, I can stand a cv in game but not doubles. Just don't like it. I have noticed that dds seem to be abundant these days. It is what I want to be in in a double sub game.

    You're always welcome in PvE. All the best with the IRL stuff.

    Best Steel Ship?

    Bourgone is my only buy so far. A very good ship. I think I will opt for a dd next time.

    German Z-31...what precisely is the point of this T7 DD?

    Battle Pass - Pass or Fail?

    I bought the premium and have no regrets. The small price brought me lots of goodies and I really like the Tokachi. Only regret is that I felt like I had to play everyday. I suppose that is what WG was shooting for. Won't do it this time because there is not a ship at the end.

    December Lighthouse Auction

    I suspect the Coal auction was aimed more at people like me, than you. * I grind out the tech tree lines. The only time I'd use FXP on them is (1) resetting lines for Research Bureau or (2) speeding up getting the Tier 10 for Anniversary/Christmas events. * The only Tech Tree lines I don't have the Tier 10s for are the USN Subs, the IJN Light Cruisers and the USN Destroyer line (my regrind for Research Bureau line) * I have all the FXP ships. * I'm earning FXP faster than I can earn Coal, and , looking at my records, over the last two years or so WG are releasing Coal ships every 70 days or so. That is faster than I can earn Coal. The only thing I regularly use Free XP on quick resets of a line for the Research Bureau. Even after winning the Coal auction I still have enough Free XP for at least one quick reset, so the 600k FXP I just spent would of only earned me 10k Research Points or about 1/6th of a Research Bureau ship. For someone like me, and there are more of us than you'd think, the Free XP for Coal option was a good deal. But I understand that for the majority of players it was not.

    Having just come out of a four CV and four sub game, I tend to agree. We won but it was not very fun. My playing time has definitely cut back.
  23. I got Omono in early access, its not great(better than Tokachi, but not by much). If Mogami had access to MBM3 and a bit better turret traverse, it would be better than Yodo at Tier X. Even with out those, Mogami is still basically as good or better than Yodo, which says a lot. I honestly got the impression that people were expecting a line of similar ships to Mogami, but what we ended up with is anything but. Honestly, I don't know what the balancing department must be drinking, cause I swear they must have been drunk when they were coming up with the stats of these things. I imagine this was part of the conversation: "15 second reload is okay for a light cruiser right guys?" "Oh yeah, absolutely. I've also asked the armor model guys to make the citadel as big as it can be. Cruiser citadels were too small before, they need to rival some battleships in size."

    Co-op advice on lines requested

    Izmail is a PVP Bote. Go into port and look at her turret arrangement. You try to push and use all her guns? That will get you DELETED in a PVP and PVE situation. But what if you had to kite away? Use Izmail's speed to maintain or increase distance between you and the red ships. Suddenly the gun angles on Izmail are very good. This is great in a PVP situation. But we don't kite in Co-Op and most Operations require offensive movement. So Izmail's strengths aren't suited for both PVE modes like it does in PVP. Renown - She suffers exactly the same way that a bunch of BBs with extremely few guns do: Not enough rifles. She may have good accuracy but they're not exactly devastating guns to make every hit matter. Gneisenau also suffers from this, but at least she has torpedoes and absolutely fantastic secondary battery. Shikashima is also another 6-gun BB but she has other things that help her out: Very fast reload, Yamato accuracy, and the 510mm AP shells hit like meteors. Renown, Gneisenau don't have the brutal shells and reload the way Shikashima does to offset having only 6 guns max. I won't comment on the ITA DDs but for RN Battlecruisers and RU Battleships, they are worth going up. They get better, especially in the latter tiers.

    Carriers and Subs - your killing this game.

    Sure! But then you won't have much of a game left to play! XD Silly questions get silly answers :P German subs definitely need to be reined in, yes. Limited loaders actually SOMEWHAT balance subs....kind of. They can still shotgun and do all the things though. But it does rein them in a tad.
