  1. For estinf you don't need all the tiers. Because they are only testing the mechanics and how they interact with ither ships. Particularly, the low underwater time and the dubious underwater speed with homing torpedoes is a bit much; and I'm a submarine supporter. Longer under water endurance with semi-hostorical speeds and maybe proximity detonators on long range torpedoes would make up for their lack of underwater mobility. Furthermore, it would increase the value of operating on the surface instead of attacking everything while submerged.
  2. They were. However, making the Gato a t10s is like making the Atlanta the t10 usn CL; counter productive and doesn't make any sense. If anything, the uss Barbell should be t10 and the Type 21 should be t8 or 9, with paper filling in those top trees. Submarines were more varied than cruisers, their representation in game should represent that.
  3. Comparing a gato to a type 21is like comparing a Ford Taurus to a Mercedes S500.

    During the Halloween event we had secondary guns that were under 76mn; thats why i brought this up: ty.

    The RN 133s had a slower rof than the 5/38s which are on the Atlanta and Flint sit at 5s. Both Atlanta and Flint could use a rof buff. Since Dido would be getting better torpedoes and single fire spreads, she wouldn't need/fare to be higher rof on her 133s. Also, t10 is a place for super ships, Minotaur is out of this world in the right hands. T5 BBs and DDs will still need a fighting chance against Dido.

    ST, changes to test ships

    This is the best news in a long time: thank you...

    AP only on DD caliber guns would be painful at t7. The Atlanta works as is because she has both munitons and still could see some help. A Dido at t7 would have to get real close at time when super speed DDs and ultra accurate BBs make playing even tanky cruisers tenuous at best. However, I'd still like to see HMS Dido in the game. Maybe as a cruiser that branches back into the CL line. Or an Atlanta style trainer that can use both CL and DD captain skills. IFHE isn't a RN DD thing until t9; and wow's has of yet to get tech trees that cross medians yet. I'd like to see some cross over tech trees.

    Fare enough, but I've yet to see a KGV citadel'd and the lower free board and external armor belt holds advantages over HE and the possibly soon to be SAP shells of the Italians. Furthermore, that torpedo bulge is only effective against small caliber AP and HE. Contemporary BBs aside Scharnhorst will have no oroblem going through that belt outside of extreme angles or maximum range. Also, While we may compare her to her contempories, we have to keep in mind these are 14in guns, while Colorado, Nagato and Sinop are boasting those 406s. Also, those fat 1930s secondary turrets are an eye sore...

    The secondary turrets for the 5/38s on California are wrong. They should be the same model on as those on Atlanta and Iowa Sry to use a navsource photo. Also, given her speed of 20.5kts, CaliforCalifornia'm range is just too short even with a spotter plane. Faster t7 BBs like KGV, Scharnhorst, Sinop and Gneisenau would kite her for days while drinking bratwurst and sausages for the whole show. Furthermore, 14in guns make California the lightest armed BB at her tier, with the weakest armor layout. Unless there's 2.05 sigma on those twelve guns she's pretty much a floating xp pinata since she's outranged by some cruisers. Outside the obvious, the ship needs help. Longer main battery range to maybe 19km, 2.0 sigma and 6km range secondary batteries and she'd at least be able to fend for herself. Otherwise, good looking ship Crokodone

    Next Sprint: No Star Save!

    Ranked been out a week and we already got a sprint in the chamber???

    ST, Poltava & Puerto Rico

    The rear 5in guns or Puerto Rico should be facing the stern. In addition, you Gave Yoshino 20km torps, why are you nerfing the one trait Puerto Rico has going for her? And where is her aa? She shpuld have some bow mounted AA weapons. Furthermore, in regards to Puerto Rico, are those secondaries 5/38s or 5/57s??? What are rate of fire. Not but not least, its more than obvious these post treaty heavy cruisers are popular enough for their own tech line; it would be nice if we got a tech line of Alaska's amd Spee's. Pls and thank you. Yours truly Crokodone

    Well, as balanceable as DDs. Because both Chung Mu and Yueyang should be packing radar on top of that smoke.
  14. On the contrary it makes less sense.
