  1. One of the best changes WG made

    The only time I have seen an unbalanced match was the other day I had a 7 vs 7 and out team had 2 DDs with the enemy having one. The reason for the odd matchmaking, I believe, is due to the CV que. NA CVs aren't as plentiful as on the EU servers (or so I've heard). Their long wait time may have contributed to the uneven MM. In all, I like the way the game is atm. GG Wargaming
  2. It is challenging but do-able. I like the changes. It keeps you on your toes. If you stick to the objective of protecting the CV you can win this no problem. In order to get the 5*s you need to have a cruiser (maybe 2) or 1 cruiser with CV support go south for the 1st enemy carrier and rejoin the fleet ASAP. The BBs ABSOLUTELY need to stick with the fleet and maybe a little ahead. Don't be afraid to take a little damage for Raptor. There also needs to be a ship or 2 ahead of Raptor to soak up some damage to keep him alive. Finally, smoking up Raptor whenever possible will help a great deal. You don't need to have the right team make up of ships but it does help. Someone to smoke Raptor, at least 1 BB, and a CV to spot the enemy carriers for secondary objectives and to keep attack aircraft from messing up your allies.
  3. Hmm, I may have done the same thing. I'll have to take a look next time I'm on. Reloading faster won't matter if you can't hit anything.
  4. Missouri... I think my problem is that I tend to be really aggressive with her because I try to get close enough to use radar and i end up getting focused. On the other hand when I play more cautious I can't ever seem to get RNG to cooperate. Even from 10-15 km I can't hit anything. I do much better in the Iowa.
  5. In DDs i like to get up front and spot if not cap. Run if I'm not getting enough support and try hit and run tactics while spotting for my team. CAs are all about support- focus DDs 1st and start setting fires and annoying BBs 2nd while hiding behind or near islands in my American cruisers. BBs I push up to my cap at full speed bow on. Once I'm about 5-6 Km from the cap I slow down and look for good targets to delete. CVs...I haven't played CVs too much since I got to the Essex. When I do play I try to spot as much as possible but really CV play is like a chess match with the other CV. I feel it's difficult to pay attention to incoming chat while I'm watching the map trying to figure out where the enemy CV will send their strike package next or looking for that lone enemy ship that would make a good target for mine.
  6. So you think you have bad match making?

    I get what you're saying but I'm with everyone that commented before me. I'm not really sure what you're complaining about. You should know better.

    Oh I know. I was just throwing that in. It kinda goes along with the, "nerfing your favorite ship" you were talking about.

    Yes I do know that the Cleveland has gone through a few changes since it's original release. Currently it'll be going through even more changes with the new US CA split and the Cleveland moving to tier 8. I know the WIP videos aren't a representation of the final product but from what I've seen the Cleveland will not be as powerful as it is at tier 6. I'd call that a nerf.

    I'm pretty much US all the way (National pride). I started the game playing and loving the US CVs but ever since the load out changes for carriers it's been a horrible grind. I'm on the Essex now but I hardly play it because of all the hate that comes my way if I'm being beat in the air. I've noticed that early in game if the other CV driver is better than you (or any friendly CV) you are gonna have a bad day. For now I've put the CV line on the shelf. I do, however, LOVE the US cruiser line and have done so from the beginning. I now have the Des Moines. Cruisers are soft targets but I love the rapid fire of ALL cruisers. In the right position you can really put the hurt on the enemy team and make BBs run away with their tails between their legs. I have been dabbling with other lines and some honorable mentions so far would be German cruisers and IJN Battleships.

    In the morning b4 work... At night while the wife is asleep... It might get a little messy with the dip but I love it!
  11. Don't sail in a straight line ever. The more you "wiggle around" the harder you'll be to hit. That goes for incoming rounds as well as torpedoes.
  12. If anyone even reads this far... a lot of good advice here. I'd like to reiterate the importance of map awareness. Just like when you are driving your car in RL you have to check your gauges to make sure you're not speeding, your car isn't over heating, or you have enough fuel in your tank. Mini map. Look at it regularly and don't get tunnel vision. The mini map could help you find a better target (like one showing broadside) or a DD that just showed up around the island near you. This will also help you stay alive longer by seeing what targets can shoot at you. On that note priority target (captain skill) helps keep you out of trouble. If you are being targeted by more than 2-3 enemies you need to move into a better position. Focus fire. When targets start getting weak, you should have as many ships firing on that target as possible. A wounded enemy is still capable of killing you or your allies.

    This is cool! I'd like to see your D&D minis also.
  14. Check for software/app updates that might fix the issue. A music app I have used to pause when I'd open other apps but after the music app updated it was all good. Sometimes you just need to restart your phone after an update (even though it doesn't tell you to).
  15. Caption the profile image above you.

    I don't really have anything to shoot at, I just like to make my guns go, "pew-pew-pew!"
