    Resizing DD models?

    I'm pretty sure the ships are the right size, it's just that the towns are inhabited by hobbits.
  2. I love the dig at all the Russian paper ships the devs can't stop adding to the game.

    Are you happy with the Current CV status?

    Sums it all up. Please fix WG.
  4. Oh right. That's why everyone is losing uncontrollably to CVs, cause they forgot to change their AA sectors. Problem solved.
  5. You can WASD your way out of torps. CVs you can't. There is no "git gud" way to deal with them.
  6. I know I'm the 800th person to complain about this, but CVs are completely ruining the game right now. It's not like a minor advantage that they can tweak in subsequent patches (e.g. german armour), but completely unbalancing. My main complaints are: (1) they have too many planes - shoot down 40, doesn't matter, they still send wave after wave. At least in previous versions they'd run out of planes if they used them foolishly early on. (2) they're too hard to kill as a DD - sneak past their lines and ambush a CV? Great, watch it outrun you, swarm you and keep you perma-spotted; you'll do 1/3 damage to it just to die pointlessly. Most of the time it will be some stupid detonation or rocket planes that you can't do anything about. (3) it turns into an RTS clickfest at the end of each round. My favourite is when it's 4 CVs at the end. Stupid, pointless, and not fun. Again, it's not something where we can wait around for a patch. The game is completely unplayable and not fun. Have an option where we can opt out of CV games until they fix it. Or just get rid of CVs completely and go back to the drawing board.
  7. Yep. There was a time when most people didn't know about the secondaries, just like there was a time when most people didn't know that the Scharnhorst and Tirpitz had torpedoes. The problem, as you've identified, is that the only ships that get close to you are the DDs coming to delete you. Great, you did 800 damage with your secondaries! And he only did... 30,000 with his torps. Good trade.
  8. Secondaries in general are crap. I remember I spec'd out my Yamato for secondaries once, and quickly realized that I was still doing 98% of my damage with my mains. I quickly changed everything so that it supported the main batteries instead. Even on German BBs, the damage is weak overall. I'll have my Bismarck firing secondaries for most of the battle, only to see 13K damage. At best, secondaries are like cruisers firing HE - yeah they do some damage to the other team, but it's all repairable and they never lead to a devastating strike like torpedoes or a well placed broadside.

    Why do people bother playing?

    Well, I hope trolling the forums makes you feel better about your loss.
  10. Yeah I've logged in a couple of Saturdays, saw it's just 50% and gone on and played something else.

    Why are the best BBs T8 and below premium?

    Because the developers want to make money?
  12. If someone said I'm thinking of starting the IJN line, I'd say just get the Musashi. If you're already almost there, play the Izumo for a little bit and then get the Yamato. The Izumo is really not that bad a ship, but remember you are a huge target (an important thing to keep in mind when you get the Yamato as well). The only reason I don't like the Izumo because it was just a paper ship, whereas the Yamato was truly the battleship to end all battleships. I know the Musashi had a similar history, but the Yamato hogs all the spotlight. At matches featuring Tier 10s, you're definitely going to want the Yamato. A lot of your shots are at very long range and the better accuracy can really make the difference. That being said, I acknowledge that the Musashi is completely OP for tier 9. I feel bad enough when the Tier 8s can't angle or do anything to prevent their deletion by the 460mm guns. At Tier 7 it's almost comical. You can also get close enough so that the dispersion doesn't really matter.

    Are There No Honorable Players in this Game?

    Yes, I agree that should be added to it.

    I certainly agree that in most situations when you have a shot at a low HP opponent you take it. As others have commented, even at 1% HP, an enemy ship still has 100% of its firepower. That being said, there are certain situations where "kill securing" be a disservice to yourself and the team. One example is when an enemy BB has (1) already used damage control, (2) is on fire, (3) is almost dead, and (4) there are good other targets around. Your shot in that situation will end his life a few seconds faster and won't prevent any damage to your team. Rather, you have prevented damage the enemy team because you now have to wait to reload your guns before you can shoot at another target.

    Quad Cit Yamato

    It's always important to remember that while the Yammy can hit very hard, it can also get hit very hard. A bit of a glass cannon I suppose, although I'm always a proponent of the best defense being a good offense.
