    Life after the CV rework

    Yeah -- I'm prolly looking at Steel Divisions II if 8.0 goes live in its current state. Always was a fan of close combat series and eastern front ground combat wargames.

    Life after the CV rework

    yeah I think so. It's a reasonably polished system with a big online player base -- particularly for Planes. Its perhaps not as polished as WoTs or WoWs and I dont think the online player base is as big WOT or WOW. But I dont recall ever having much of queue wait time during typical peak game times. War Thunder Planes are fun --tanks are also fun. War Thunder is apparently introducing ships as well, but I haven't played ships in War Thunder yet.
  3. I get irritated when a player is yakking on and on in chat about their crap team -- only to find out after the match when I look up the persons player profile that the Admiral Nimitz in chat has a win rate of like 46 or 47% and they were the lowest scoring player in the match.

    Bad Bad Players

    were you in this same match with Flamu?
  5. How is it pay to win? It certainly qualifies as "pay to get more steel". What is it --like 4k or 5K steel to complete all the tasks.(?) But by itself its not even close to the amount of steel you'd need to get the pure stalinimum Volgograd. Nor is it enough to get you a Black or a Flint. All three of those ships could be classified as "play well to win more". Conversely I'd reckon if you let a 45% w/r player buy a stalinimum Volgograd, Black or Flint, in the premium shop, I'd be willing to bet cash money on that 45% w/r player still having a 45% w/r after a hundred or two hundred games in any of those 3 ships.
  6. Good DD players seem a rarity in Scenario play. Most players driving DDs get nuked within the first few minutes. I'm pretty certain the BoTs are programmed to focus fire DDs. In addition BoT programming makes landing torps on BoT ships more challenging -- at least in Scenarios (not as hard in Co-Op). I find I typically have to get to about 4 or 5km to have a reliable chance of tagging BoTs with torps. Not always -- but usually. Of course human DD players pushing into those sorts of ranges to launch torps usually has predictable results when the BoTs focus fire. The human dies quickly. Don't get me wrong, good DD players in scenarios -- while rare -- can be pretty invaluable. But these are folks that understand BoT tactics. Folks that are not really really comfy playing DDs against BoTs in scenarios should really stick to cruisers, BBs or CVs.
  7. I think the point of the various videos coming out of the recent PTS is that perma-spotting will not require an air unit hovering over a ship ala the current RTS version of CV play. The point being made is that aircraft are moving around the battle space so quickly in 8.0 that surface ships remain in an almost permanent state of being spotted -- regardless of whether or not the CV players are making a conscious effort at providing reconnaissance. In addition -- and again due to aircraft speed in 8.0 -- surface ships are getting spotted very early on in matches relative to the RTS version of air unit movement. These are relatively easy to find on youtube. I'd encourage folks interested in this topic to take a look at some of these videos. Just search "World of Warship CV rework"
  8. Yeah? You're saying we shouldn't expect a new meta for DDs after the rework? Is that your point?
  9. Notser posted this yesterday after PTS round 2 of 8.0. Worth a look.
  10. Agreed...I'd be tempted to add... One of Notser's comments in his latest videos for the 2nd round of PTS was that most everything on the map will be spotted very early on in matches and typically remain spotted due to the new air mechanics and speed of aircraft. He also makes the point that DD antiaircraft in the new mix is border line non-existent. Combine the above two aspects of 8.0 and pt no. 5 might be a totally different meta can be expected in DD play after 8.0 goes live.

    AA increase on PTS - a concern

    yeah -- the last dying gasp of those interested in your resume.

    an account UK? you keep preaching tactics...yet no sign of having actually played the game. Transparency and credibility -- words us City Boyz use.
