    BB's how can you defend against dds

    You can do all the right things and sometimes you're just going to end up in a position where you're at the mercy of a DD. It happens.

    BB's how can you defend against dds

    Situational awareness. Know or at least have a good idea where the enemy DDs are at at all times. Know their characteristics.....what's their concealment? How many torps do they have? What's the reload time on their torps? What's the range on their torps? Try to always have friendly ships in between you and enemy DDs so they can spot incoming torps early. Don't be predictable, vary your course and speed frequently. If you know you're going to have to deal with a DD rushing you, try and have HE loaded. As you can see there's quite a few things that you can do to counter DDs. I'm a relatively novice BB player and not a very good one at that but I don't eat torps very often because of the things I mentioned. You'll just have to learn through experience.
  3. It ain't the ships that's overpowered..........

    Why bother playing if you're not going to make an effort to help your team win?

    Question: Stats about aim assist banns

    Even if WG were to release the information, I think you're making the invalid assumption that they'd give you the actual data. What's to prevent them from giving you false data?

    Huh - Elbing???

    From what I've seen so far, they are woefully inadequate as cruiser killers. First time I saw an Elbing I shredded it and I was playing Charles Martel. Same thing when I was in a Baltimore. From my experience so far they seem just seem pretty crappy.

    CV's, What exactly do you mean by "Unbalanced"

    So, being a cruiser main, what are my counters to a CV that decides at the beginning of the game that he wants me dead first?
  8. Your entire argument boils down to choice, that's it. Simply because you and others *choose* not to use mods (that are available for anybody and sanctioned by WG) then those that do choose to use them are cheating, according to your definition of cheating (which is at odds with the actual definition). If you went by the actual definition of what cheating is then we wouldn't even be having this discussion.
  9. Sanctioned mods are not hacks. Therefore using sanctioned mods is not cheating, not hacking, not a EULA violation, etc. So ease up on the judgmental "I'm just principled that way" attitude. Again, if you've made the personal decision to play the game without mods that's entirely your choice to make; criticizing others for doing so and contending that they're hacking, cheating, not playing fair is disingenuous at best.
  10. No, it's your subjective opinion. Maybe it's your concept that needs work. The mods are available to ALL players, if you choose not to use them then that's entirely on you.

    T-61 or Mainz?

    I have both and they're both excellent ships. Mainz does fine when she's bottom tier and she's a monster when top tier so I wouldn't worry about MM with her. I wasn't aware of T-61 being removed but if she is then I wouldn't hesitate to get her, she's a really good DD. You can't go wrong with either one. Having said that you might want to hang onto the doubloons unless you really just want one of them.

    Here comes the pay to win ships

    Any ship is only as powerful as the player playing it. Potato players can turn any ship into a lemon.
  13. You win by scoring the most points. One way to do that is by capping. However, capping is just a means (scoring points) to an end (scoring the most points) and it isn't the only one. I've lost count of how many times my team has won and never got a cap. What good do caps do you when you lose all your ships trying to get them?
