    Saw that the Conq is getting a citadel.

    I like the fact it's getting a citadel. For players used to playing other ships it won't be a huge deal. They likely aren't constantly sailing broadside in the Conqueror. As for the HE spam, it is what it is. I don't see how it makes a typical Conqueror player think less than the average BB player. The average BB sits at range and slings AP all the time. The average Conqueror sits at range and slings HE all the time.
  2. Coal incents people to play more. They need log-ins as well as cash. It's all a balancing act for F2P games.
  3. For me she's not. And I'm a whale. Although I also already have Missouri and Musashi and don't really enjoy BBs in the first place. If I do decide to get her I'll pay in coal. I could afford her now, but then I'd be really short on coal for future purchases - so I may hold back.
  4. It won't be. They make too much money from Free XP flags and conversions. They will almost certainly make some of the new ships available for free XP. They could also stick the JB in there as a free XP ship eventually too. They're just playing with different ways to try and make money at the moment. I'm not sure this was a wise move for them long term as it may turn some free XP collectors off, but time will tell.
  5. They're going to need to sell some of the new ships for free XP - otherwise people will stop buying the flags and camos that give free XP boosts.

    Daring build- suggestions?

    I like the Daring but unfortunately I don’t see a ton of build flexibility with the ship. You’ll want SE. You’ll also likely want SI because of the extra heal. That’s hard to pass up. You need CE - really no option there. And you pretty much need IFHE - or any DD that knows what they’re doing is going to go bow-in on you, meaning you do almost no damage. That’s 14 points gone. I run PT, LS and AR as my other three skills. I’d love to run RDF, but with this ship it’s really hard to fit in.

    PSA - DO NOT BUY - Le Terrible

    It’s definitely not OP, but it is fun to play and not as awful as some people think. As long as you stay around 10K and don’t move in straight lines it’s extremely hard to hit. At 50+ even ships with rail guns have to shoot so far in front of you that a hit is unlikely. I’ve only played a few games so far but haven’t come close to dying. Your potential damage taken should also be decent if you’re running the British missions that track that. I cracked 2 million in one game. Edit: The MM still sucks - no way around that unfortunately, but at least with this ship you don’t care as much because you’re as hard to hit for 10s as you are for 8s.

    MM at Tier 8

    Tier 8 MM has gotten gradually worse as more people get to tier 10. At this point I think everyone knows you can expect around 60% of your tier 8 games to have at least one tier 10. Eventually I expect they'll do something like WoT where they limit the number of tier 10s in tier 8 matches. So you'll still get tier 10, but at least you'll avoid those games where there are 2-3 tier 8s per side with the rest being 10s.

    le terrible in the prem shop

    From the reviews I've seen so far it sounds like a Tier 8 Khab with much worse gun arcs, but the benefit of a reload booster to absolutely murder any DD it comes across. Unfortunately it will also get that lovely tier 8 MM. So 60%-ish tier 10 games.

    Cossack is weak? seems so

    My Cossack stats are better than my Kidd stats by a fair bit. Cossack -- 68.42% win rate; 56,146 average damage Kidd -- 51.56% win rate; 48,741 average damage Limited sample size, but the Cossack is definitely not a bad DD. EDIT: I'd take the Harekaze over either though.
  11. They're very good overall DDs. They've got either very good or decent concealment, their manoeuvrability is great, torps are decent and the guns are amazing in the right situations. I also kind of like the smoke. It's perfect for popping defensively to run or doing a short offensive burst. You get lots of charges and a fast reload. It's short, but that isn't the worst thing in the world because the longer you sit in smoke, the more likely you are to get torped or hunted down by a radar CA. And if you get pushed out of your smoke by radar you really don't care because you know you've got another charge coming up soon. I haven't played them a ton yet but I haven't come across one that I really dislike. The Daring may be my new favourite tier 10 DD. I wanted to like the Harugumo, but I hate the handling so much.

    WOW REALLY WG this is the Cossack?

    Cossack is fine. With the concealment and guns it's amazing against other DDs. Just don't expect to be hitting a lot of torps.
  13. Like others I used to be a whale. The issue is once you have almost everything, there is very little incentive to spend more. I think that's when games like Ships and Tanks start to run into trouble. They need to attract new players to keep the money rolling in, because there isn't really a reason for the whales to keep spending like whales. I still spend money on the game, but it's a fraction of what I used to spend - not because I hate the game, but because there really isn't a ton to spend it on. I haven't been buying a ton of the new containers because I've already got a ton of camo and signals and even if I didn't I already have every non-CV tech tree tier 10. So I don't really have a use for the signals and camos anyway. I'll likely wind up buying a crate or two to ensure I get the captain, but it will just be to fill out stuff I'm missing.

    The HMS Daring

    The 9 and 10 are not worse than the 8. They're just different.

    The HMS Daring

    The gun rating really doesn't mean much. The Daring's guns when specced out do insane DPM if you use AP on broadside targets. If you want better HE damage you can add IFHE to make the HE a bit more appealing. The reload with the mod and without BFT or AR is 2.2 I believe. That's insanely fast. Despite the rating the guns are great.
