    STOP the "game balancing" of ships

    Look this has nothing to do with the ship. My complaint is WG policy of "game balancing" ships. Ships should not be released by WG if they are not game balanced in the first place.

    My ability to play the game has NOTHING to do with this post. Your just being A Troll.

    Yes the HE shells were not changed and with out the IFHE shill they were deficient. That change has effected the ship as well but that is not my complaint. I am complaining because WG constantly nerfs tanks and ships. I fell that is unnecessary. Players learn to counter these ships. In fact our clan preferred to not use the Smolensk in Clan wars. We felt other ships were better for the task.

    It is not an "advantage" When everyone has access to the ship.

    Last battle was a co-op. Two Smolensks, neither of us made it past 3 minutes 36 seconds before we got smoked BY BOTS.
  6. Just an FYI Wargaming. I used to play WoT all the time. One of the major reasons for quitting was nerfing of the games tanks. Now you seem to be doing the same in WoWs, I have been playing the Smolensk since you made "game balancing" changes to the ship. Like in WoT you have taken a really good and fun ship and nerfed it into oblivion. I can not understand your mind set of constantly changing the capabilities of tanks ans now ships in your game other then for reasons of greed. Most of us in clan wars certainly have learned to counter this ship. There was no need to change it's abilities. Clearly in the few battles I have payed since you "game balanced" this ship I have found HE to be worthless as most seem to bounce causing few fires (like the 2 on my last random match). Yeah why are HE shells bouncing at 110 times on a cruiser or any ship for that matter. The shells only do 200 damage per hit so it is not like it has this massive alpha damage like a BB does to me. A message and a warning for you WG. Lots of players stopped playing WoT with this being a common complaint of my friends who play your game. You have 12,000 players on your server. YOU REALLY CAN NOT AFFORD TO LOSE PLAYERS. Keep this up and you will a least lose me. I am just personally sick and tired of it and after talking to my clan mates so are they. Strom

    Carrier observations of a new CV player.

    So I have been playing my Tier 8 Lexington. I have 15 battles. Constantly being placed in tier 10 battles. Constantly getting my aircraft shot down. Doing 26k damage average per battle. Feels frustrating to play as it seems that my planes are constantly getting shot down before I can attack. I notice that the carrier players are at the bottom of the experience list.
  8. Can I change the color of the enemy markers nameplates in game? The red is hard for me to read.

    Ok! Weekends seem to place me in a lot of tier 8 battles. WG please understand playing my tier 6 planes against tier 8 BBs and Cruisers plain out right is not fun. Having little to no chance to hit just is not fun. I have managed a few 40k damage games in the tier 8 battles but I have to wait and attack the ships that are not tier 8. I as a player want to be a help to my team mates. Being in a tier 8 battle I feel VERY handicapped. I usually am able to only attack half the team with any success. The smart players in the lower tiers hang near the tier 8 to keep from being attacked from the air. So even though half the players my be my tier or one up I find very few that are not bunched up with a tier 8 making it difficult to attack even the lower tiers. I only get one pass at a target and a good half the time I still miss. For example I managed to hit a tier 8 BB with a US Rocket plane and hit 8 times only to do ZERO damage as the rockets bounced. Torpedo planes seem to be my only real hope Obi Wan of doing damage when I hit a tier 8 and I lose all my planes doing so. Playing a tier 7 match is still tough but I feel I am able to attack any tier 7 ship and support my team. AA in a tier 8 battles MAKES me attack lone targets. You get two ships together one being a tier 8 and forget even trying a attack. I will see as my skill improves if this observation changes. So far I am hitting more, doing more damage per game but find fighting the tier 8 ships nearly impossible to do so.

    Well I am doing more damage per game still in the 8k to 35k for the most part with a few games higher and lower. I find sinking ships is a lot harder then before the CV change. I have sunk FAR fewer ships with the CV rework then before. I feel this is due to the lower damage per attack. I only get to sink ships if their HPs are VERY low. And ships fire far faster at low hp targets while my attacks take time to cross the map and line up to launch an attack. I seem to be getting a lot more tier 8 battles on the weekends. I do not find them fun to play. My planes constantly get obliterated in every attempt to attack a ship. I usually only do 3k to 5k in damage in these battles. I try and spot as I can not attack ships but spotting does not seem to get me much experience and truly not much fun. Getting in tier 8 battles is a waste of my flags and camos. Starting to wonder if WG is doing this on purpose to burn my flags and camo. I will get 8k to 35k experience in tier 6, less in tier 7 and average 3k to 5k in the tier 8.

    So I finally hit a tier 8 ship by coming around and island and limiting his AA on my planes. Still have to say VERY tough to get any damage on tier 8 ships with tier 6 planes. I am getting more damage per game with experience. I do not see much of a difference with the IJN and US CVs they seem to play much alike. Now to work the US line.

    So far not one successful attack on a tier 8 BB.

    Thanks to you all for the positive post! Why I love this community! The info given has confirmed some of what I was doing as well as added some tactics I was not. Again Thanks.

    I played 2 battles in the IJN tier 4 and Wow I am doing a lot more damage. 5 Bomb 5 torpedo and 12 rocket hits for 27, 507 damage over 30k on the first battle. The tier 4 seems to out damage the tier 6 USN CV.
