  1. the pronounciation of the name is wrong in the video. Here is a link: https://forvo.com/word/giulio_cesare/ As of Italian descent, they could have done better for the video.
  2. There are ways to adjust to this smoke mechanic change. When I play a dd gun boat, I prefer to be moving from range and harassing the enemy over sitting in smoke. Sitting in smoke can at times make you a target for enemy torpedo. There is the captain skill to make larger smoke area to sit in back as someone mentioned. DDs that like easy mode sit in smoke just to spam fire which most of the time is awful when you should be spotting. This does not mean it does not have its useful moments but the changes do not end DD play or cruiser play. It is a challenge to adjust your play style, rise to it.
  3. there are many reasons not to have different modes. Not large enough player base is a start.
  4. Personally, I have enjoyed playing all the German DDs, even the T22
  5. z23 is a good ship
  6. I have come to an understanding that some people just like to shoot and do not care if they are spotted followed by death. They are just here to have fun. There are those that take this game too seriously and those do not care much other than to click button and have fun. Getting tilted, stressed or upset over other people's play in the long run is not health for ourselves. With that being said, it is hard to do for some of us, myself included.
  7. Here is a solution, if someone is AFK for a few minutes or ships is not moving for a certain time, allow the AI to take the ship over so the team does not hurt.
  8. Suggestion for a new game mode: - have a mode where you keep coming back to life for the entire match time of 20 minutes, victory is determined by how many points you have at the end of the game, no point limit - have a mode in domination where the cap can be a repair port for all ally ships for a certain time interval in the game, while in the repair port, you cannot move or shoot anything, repair a certain percentage, not full health - have a mode where parts of the map are gradually opened as the match progresses and have certain tasks to complete or caps to secure to earn a certain amount of points I would be willing to assist in developing these modes further with a discussion
  9. The smoking by dd thing is from a few instances I saw a BB pushing with a dd right to the side or in front of the BB and blows smoke in a stationary position, not saying it should happen all the time, just a suggestion to work as a team and look around, moving a little bit with your smoke is not going out of your way, I do it as a DD as often as I can.
  10. Disclaimer: This is not a post to complain or start drama. I am not a great player and look to improve my game play experience. I thought it would be a good idea to share some observations and ideas to help other players. ---- 1. Lots of Cruisers and Battleships showing broadside and stay broadside. Solution: Try to avoid tunnel vision and be cognizant of your surroundings. -- 2. DDs smoke up themselves to avoid enemy fire when an ally BB is getting pummeled nearby. DD makes no attempt to move to provide some smoke to BB to help. Solution: DDs, your smoke is more useful to your allies and for you to spot or as a mechanic to escape sticky situations, keep an eye out for allies when smoking up, they may need some help. -- 3. People shooting at a ship already burning or flooding with less than 1000k health, I know salvos are launched before that can be seen but it happens often where people just want the kill. Solution: Particularly BBs and DDs using torps, before launching salvo on enemy with low health, think about if your salvo or torps are better used elsewhere because wasting that many shots or torps is wasteful. -- * If anyone else has helpful ideas or observations to help each other as a community for a better competitive game play for all, offer the solutions. As a community we complain a lot, want things nerfed or a particular ship we love buffed to become indestructible or very aggressively critical of our fellow players. This behavior will cause people to stop playing over time and if you enjoy this game and want it to last, we should support each other constructively. With that being said, we also all have to be open and accepting of criticism and use it as an opportunity to improve our own game play and not take it personal. --- I have been guilty of all of the above and I am trying to change to contribute positively to the community. Thank you all for your time.
  11. My advice is the following: ~ play more tier 6 and 7 games ~ use the mini map, situational awareness (most important) ~ patience and try to stay alive as long as you can ~ learn your ships weaknesses and strengths and also the other ships to use that knowledge to your advantage
  12. This is a free ship, stop the whining. They have had the Fujin and Kamikaze on sale withing the past year if you really wanted a similar ship. This type of ship is a credits machine, if you want it really bad, do the work like others have on the previous event.
  13. This is a good event for new player base and to promote the game. I have a Kamikaze R but joined the event, free items are decent.
  14. I filled it out with a fake name and alternate email address, seems legit.
  15. BBs are very playable in this meta. All ships are playable for the right captain. We are not great at every ship or ship class with exception of a few players. There is always room for improvement from game developers and players. Try to offer solutions that balance the game not a single class of ships. BBs dislike invisible firing, cruisers dislike being deleted by BBs, DDs dislike being spotted by CVs and CVs dislike ships with great AA, That seems like something towards balance.
