  1. What? The Molotov is awesome sauce. I can delete most cruisers, pen T5 BB's with consistency. You just don't tank with it and you'll be fine.
  2. Yeah, I am surprised no one else picked up on the ship's most glorious range and the +200(?) Damage over the NO shell.
  3. So there is a T10 in premium camo (usually denotes upcoming Premium ship) on the dev blog but.... For some odd reason I and a few other folks thought the Salem was on the tech tree cruiser split list. Not there now... Weird. ST, American cruiser Salem, tier X. Hit points - 49700, plating - 25 mm, belt - 152 mm. Main battery - 3x3 203 mm. Firing range - 15.8 km. HE damage - 2800, AP damage - 5000. Reload time 5.5 s., 180 degree turn time - 30 s., maximum dispersion - 142 m. HE initial velocity - 823 m/s. AP initial velocity - 762 m/s. Sigma count - 2.05. Maximum speed - 33 kt. Turning circle radius - 770 m., rudder shift time - 8.6 s. Surface detectability - 13.4 km, air detectability - 9.9 km. Detectability after firing main guns in smoke - 8.2 km. Anti-torpedo defense damage reduction - 7%. Available consumables: Slot 1 - Damage Control Party Slot 2 - Defensive AA Fire Slot 3 - Surveillance Radar Slot 4 - Repair Party All stats are listed without crew and upgrade modifiers.
  4. On the plus side, it gets rid of the most non-CV players' hated loadout - the all strike. Of course, now getting XP in the floating point pinata's will be even harder... Now if they get rid of that stupid strafe mechanics..... As for the Enterprise, it is a quick trip to a T8 CV which isn't a good thing (cough cough halloween missions).
  5. If you want smarter bots, petition WG. If you want smarter players, good luck. I've only played about 40 PvP games and saw players every bit as dumb as bots lol. My most recent match was in a big fat Nelson. I backed up a small group of cruisers (2-3) and a DD (good fellow he was!) parked next to an island and bow tanked everything that came my way. I realized once the match developed that I was a bit over extended - ie out too far because I didn't understand the dynamics of the map. It didn't matter - the players all focused on the DD's or tried to delete cruisers. So I was plugging away at T8's and 9's in my little HE spewing Nelson being completely ignored by the entire enemy team, not moving from my little island shield (the thing was not much bigger than my Nelson) and plugging away at full broadside target focus'd bb's cruisers, and whatever was in range. After the enemy team was on the ropes and 70k damage later, the Iowa finally noticed me and started plugging away, as did the remaining cruiser. Apparently my team opted to all duck behind some islands and the BB didn't see the lone DD charging his backside.. So I opted to dunquerq it and sail backwards hoping to get a few more HE rounds on the cruiser before he could get torpedo angles on me, and enough angle to get a few of the Iowa rounds to bounce. Anyways I end up dying, and we win. But still.. so much broadside...
  6. Buffalo.. looks like the tier changed..
  7. I'd vote for the dual turret 14" variant but... Nit likely. I am looking at the line and maybe the line is split roughly on 8" guns and 6" guns initially. The Pensocola is really just a light cruiser with 8" guns... Pretty much after T6 the line looks traditional heavy vs light.
  8. I haven't gotten the strategy down right - the shield didn't work for me when Rats spawned like 2km with his junkies. Fired off shield right away - died anyways from 3/4 health. Anyways..still good fun.
  9. Maybe they will adjust it later? Probably not as that is the normal T8 camo stat.
  10. I like the 20k free xp, the free gold, the camos are ok, the skins.... yup good event.
  11. It's -10% repair, 3% conceal, 4% dispersion, 50% bonus XP...
  12. I once knew a man with a wooden leg named Smith. Reminds me of a joke from Mary Poppins.
  13. I just enjoy the feel of all those cruiser rounds bouncing off my stalanium hull. She's an ok BB, fun to play, just takes patience.
  14. I don't play T7 premiums much... so a pass for me.
  15. I am grinding the Izzy so the last thing I want to see is another ship with a similar setup... normally I'd play it just for something different.
