    Reporting SuperTesters?

    Seriously? You want to report someone for "following you" . . . Well, let's see how this turns out.

    DD's get [edited] yet again

    You do realize that they also introduced a module that increases torpedo speed that destroyers can mount right? These two modules go hand in hand, as you can now get a free speed boost to your torpedoes or you can detect them better. They are direct counters to one another...

    Seeing more games like this now

    I find the same theory true of ranked players vs non-ranked players. In some blowouts you'll see a number of players that haven't played rank. This of course could mean multiple things: 1. A new-ish player 2. A less competitive, more for fun player 3. A player that isnt confident enough to play ranked, meaning they have yet to feel comfortable in thier skill level.
  4. Venezia has a higher skill floor and no HE to make up for it. All the Italian Cruisers require a good grasp of enemy armor, your aim, and shell ballistics. Not to say you dont uave a grasp but it has to be really firm. Tou can do amazingly high damage if you aim well. The best advice is if your shooting a ship and your AP would over penetrate the armor, shot that same area with SAP. On BBs, the super structure bow and stern of even Kremlin can take easy 5 figure damage totals.

    How too BISMARK?

    This applies for all German Battleships: Dont get excited about your secondaries. They can and will do damage for you but it's not worth it until later in the match. Alot of people think secondary brawler and want to just charge in which is just going to get you focused fired by the enemy. Those secondaries will come into play when you're in 1 v 1, end of game time frame. So in the meantime be ok with relatively lower damage scores from your main battery at first. You'll take plenty of shots that will give you 1 pen out of 8 rounds but you're not in NC or Amagi for example where you may get better damage initially.
  6. Refreshing to see a real "new player" have something good to say. Welcome aboard.

    If you could see one ship come back

    I have all the ships that have been taken away so I dont really have an special interest in any coming back. However, I think that a couple of ships could come back based on the principle of ships that have come out recently as well as changes to the game. I believe both Belfast and Kutuzov could be brought back into the shop. Technically they cannot because of the loot crates and the uproar that would cause but they arent as much of standouts as before. Kutuzov is just a Smolensk toned down and down tiered. Yes it's easy to do well in but the smoke firing changes help with that. Unlike Smolensk though, Kutuzov now seems far more susceptible to enemy fire especially because it doesnt have a repair party. The same is true of Belfast. With the smoke firing changes it helps make it a bit easier to deal with. Atop that radar at Tier 7 with smoke isnt all that feasible accept against those who would charge smoke without a second thought. Besides with aircraft carrier spotting, radar isnt the god send it used to be. Again, unlike its counter parts, Belfast cant repair damage taken. I just dont think it would really hurt anyone or the game if those ships came back. I sort of feel the same about Missouri due to the amount of credit boosting camos and flags now widely available.

    Coal Ship question + 1more

    Damage keeps piling on. The results arent settled until the battle ends whether you're destroyed or not. Any floods or fires will still get your damage score up. You can also still get a kill. If I die early I leave and start the next match. No point in watching.

    Puerto Rico Acquired! Vid

    Sweet. Congrats!
  10. I did misspeak as I had clicked back to "All" instead of 50% Sorry the 50% Average seems to be around 70k. https://na.wows-numbers.com/ship/4181702352,Shokaku/ Scroll down and look. Regardless a CV iant going to score an average of 200k a game or whatever. That's ridiculous.
  11. Considering the average damage for 50% of players is 50k for all tier 8s and for the best 5% it's around 100k that's an absurd statement.
  12. I enjoy Yahagi, Indomitable, and Abruzzi though they are either considered bad or at least non factors. They're just fun and unique. People jump aboard the "CC said it sucks train" way to fast.

    Oddaloi - Just the best ship

    I feel the same way, I love Udaloi. Groz is good but I just have more fun with Udaloi.
  14. Nice man. Those are all great ships (even the ones people think are horrible are fun).
  15. Thank you. The rewards are worth it but then again they aren't. I found the most rewarding directive to be 4 with each mission being only restricted by nation but rewarding a 300 doubloon port spot. Thanks. I dont blame you. I didnt think it was either but I had 2 weeks of super slow work which allowed me to play like crazy. Before I knew it I was knocking out missions so I decided to roll with it. After I did the math I realized I could get PR if I just grabbed one booster and finished directive in 4 or 5 days. I couldnt pass up a $236 premium for less than $25. It just all fell into place. 5 wasnt so bad for me because I was still working on my RB regrind of Moskva. I got to pile on flags and camos without feeling bad about wasting them. Thanks. Im hoping to maybe get a little bit of 7 done for that free steel, though Im not really counting on it nor do I care if I decide to skip out. After all these games Im fine with not playing much for a bit. Thanks. The rewards arent too bad I suppose. Its an awful lot of work for some coal but it is nice to have the coal available.
