    ship hatred

    My opinion of it has actually improved. After ten games, I was convinced that she was the worst premium in the game. Now I just think that she's a bad premium. Baby steps, everyone.

    Premium Ship Review: Flint

    I'm under the impression that the change to AA has made all AA bad, regardless of the ship's nominal values. The core mechanical change is still off the mark in terms of balance and effectiveness, or at least that seems to be the prevailing opinion. People should make absolutely no decisions right now based on a ship's AA or effectiveness against CVs, be it their current statistics or an anticipated value post re-work.

    Hood AP change. Buff or Nerf?

    It's a nerf, possibly a very bad one, and I'm hoping that WG rolls it back before it gets any real traction. The small buff to the ship's Sigma is all that it needs, though honestly, I'd be fine if they just left the Hood alone completely.

    Incorrect Ensigns on the German Tech Tree

    Yeah, that's not a law. There are no rules against anything historical in Germany other than Nazi iconography. WG is simply being lazy, which would be fine, except they've already shown a willingness to create variant flags for Russian/Soviet ships for historical purposes. Ships that never served under the Nazi fleet shouldn't have to sail under the stand-in Nazi flag. It's not an OMGFIXITNAO situation, but it is something that a precedent exists for, that I'm sure several people would appreciate.

    Ranked Comparison: Black vs. Kitakaze

    Black is a force multiplier, Kitakaze is a force unto itself. On a well coordinated team the Black will make a bigger impact than Kitakaze, on an average team the Kitakaze’s superior firepower will be more effective than Black’s middling suite of weapons.

    Is there one ship you hate to play?

    No, there are several. Le Terrible, Cossack, Duca degli Abruzzi, Gascogne, Molotov, and literally every CV come to mind.

    Your “points” are so factually off-base that I’m not sure what kind of responses that you’re hoping to attract. Get better? Stop suiciding? Know when you can be aggressive in a DD, and when you need to play cautiously/defensively? DDs are challenging to play at high tiers, where radar is common and CVs can keep you permanently spotted with impunity, but they’re far from being neutered.
  9. So a DD sinking a BB is worth a creating thread over? Tune in next week when we create topics about a radar cruiser sinking a DD, and a BB dev-striking a broadside cruiser.

    Whaddayamean the PEF is bad..??

    She is bad. She uptiers poorly, her guns are unreliable, and her turret traverse rate is lacking for a ship that features speed as one of its primary draws. That doesn't mean that she can't put up good numbers, and doesn't mean that people can't enjoy her. When the guns work she can put up really chunky damage salvos, and when they don't she legitimately feels like the most toothless ship in the game.
  11. I agree with the OP's assessment that "successful" seems pretty generous, when you look into the ship's actual service record. Not trying to dog her, but circumstance really worked against her, and by the time that she had an opportunity to fight as part of a coherent national navy, she (like all battleships) was a bit of a relic.

    Musashi - Got her today!

    Congratulations, may she serve in your fleet with distinction.
  13. I’d say that the Harekaze is the best overall premium tier VIII DD, with the ability to accomodate a lot of builds and the best collection of net strengths. Of the premiums that are currently available however? Probably the Kidd for the novelty of its heal, which can give you a chance to recover after you get radared and punished early. The prevalance of radar is also why I find ships like Cossack and Lo Yang to be a bit overhyped (though I just despised the pre-buff Cossack in general). The hydro-acoustic search consumable that would make them compelling even one tier down is a bit lackluster when you’re up against 2-5 radar ships on average each game.

    Where do people...

    I find most of mine on Google image search.

    Should I skip the Monarch?

    How could even think of skipping such a famous and historically accurate ship?
