    Rework / 8.0 changes radically changed game

    I have played a DD (Jutland), BB (Alsace) and CA (Duca d' Aosta). I did alright in the DD match only b/c the enemy CV's focus was on the other flank the majority of the match. Once they shifted to my side, I was dead in <2 minutes. The BB match I was unable to use my speed to flank (which is what French BB's are made for) and was under continuous air attack from the start of the match until they put me down. What fun. Duca has superior speed (for t6) plus defensive AA. And still cannot shoot down any of the t8 planes strafing me. Stay with the group? Yes, two blobs of ships huddled together to combine AA defenses and firing at max range at the other blob. What great fun that is. There is a joke among US Navy submariners that "there are only two kinds of ships: Submarines...and targets". Being an aircraft target / punching bag is not what I paid money to be.
  2. This is no longer the game that I have enjoyed since Beta. 8.0 completed changes the "meta" for the game and renders one ship class completely ineffectual (DD"s). How do I go about getting a refund for the 90 days premium I just purchased? I am no longer enjoying this. Prior to this rework, the "rock-paper-scissors" was balanced pretty well. Now it is CV vs AA and everything else is subordinated to that.
  3. Ah, I had forgotten about Espana. Ok, SECOND-smallest Dread.
  4. Bringing in Viribus Unitis (an Austria-Hungarian ship) as a German... well, ok. As the smallest dreadnought BB ever built, it should be a bit "stealthy", as Flamu pointed out. That firepower will be interesting, but, as a previous poster mentioned, her torpedo protection was awful. One ship of the class capsized and sank from just 2 (small torpedo-boat) torpedo hits, while another (VU herself) sank from a hand-delivered limpet mine. I personally like the look of the WW1 boats, and will likely acquire VU.
  5. GOFU=Grumpy Old Farts United. Get off my lawn! Err.. I mean ocean! Get off my OCEAN! We are a very casual clan... in fact, I created it solely to provide the economic benefits to our members. To date, we haven't done CW, though we do occasionally get a few members to division together. Hey, what can I say...it's tough to get Grumpy Old Farts to cooperate! So, if you're interested in an active, clannish-type clan, look elsewhere. If you just want a clan tag, and those nice economic & research bonuses, send me a request in-game! VonLippe
