    US BB buff suggestions/theorys

    Or give the ones with sts armor their actual armor, give the secondaries their actual rate of fire and adjust their main batteries to take advantage of their planned plunging AoI.
  2. Me actually playing a BB. Lol. As a player who plays far more aggressive than is sane. I can tell you that short of a pair of supported Yamatos, rapid fire HE is the biggest deterrent to pushing. Not torpedoes, not smoke, not another BB and not lack of support. Vision mechanics can be a pain but both sides have to deal with it.

    Because the first official act of the DD mafia was to nickname BB mains BBabies. Lol

    Proposed Yeuyang nerf is OUTRAGEOUS

    Still, the irony was enough to make me chuckle and thus deserves a +1. Lol

    WG going do something about HE cheese?

    Sorry I don't have time to properly respond I need to catch up on the 330 page radar whine thread.

    I think what he's getting at is the very fastest subs would be tier 3-4 BB fast with most of them losing a race to Langley. You are never going to participate in most games as you slowly move to the closest cap and hope someone stumbles into your range.

    To the first part. You cannot force players to target you. If you see a red BB that is shielded from your allies by an island and bow on to you (assuming no over match). Do you still target that BB or do you shoot his support ships? Now what if that BB was not quite broadside but showing a little cheek? The second part. Here we are just arguing opinions but I feel the more dynamic gameplay at lower tiers is far more enjoyable. Even with more players trickling down who can't hack it in higher tiers and bringing thier staleness with them.

    A well positioned BB doesn't get shot at. So by positioning well you limit fire on yourself but make the choice easier to fire on your support. If your support maintains good positioning you end up in a stand off. In randoms you can win a lot of games just by being patient. But look at the fun factor in Massachusetts. Not many players enjoy static games. The complaint is the effects the current iteration of HE + ifhe + fires has on the flow of the game. With a survival spec it takes like 9 full burn fires to sink you. Add in heals and that number goes up to 14. Add in DCP and that number goes up more. If you can limit the area being spammed damage saturation kicks in and even the ifhe damage drops off. My argument has never been about "Getting burned" or "I should be unkillable while yoloing". As a matter of fact I made a thread about the Izumo deck armor buff being too much.

    Even then we are talking tier 10 @ 20kts.

    Lol I have even addressed this in this thread. Don't push. Don't get focused. Manage consumables well. You can't argue that with those as your "Skilled counters" that BBs should push up and tank. Two of them are actually dependant on not pushing and the third is only really an option when employing the others. A well positioned BB doesn't get shot at unless they are the only target which goes against the "Don't get focused" rule.

    That's what the current fix that's being worked on for radar.

    As players we effectively aim over the barrel. So that "perfect spotting data" is needed for us to aim at it. If we had the ability to punch in range, heading and speed and get an aim point in real time. I would agree we wouldn't need "Perfect spotting data" either but we don't.

    When I see posts like this I wonder. Do you believe that the Gunner is aiming using iron sights over the berral?
