    USS Black

    Black use to be the best dd hunter in the game when it 1st came out. At the time Pan asian was the only other dds with radar but they had to chose smoke or radar could not have both like the black. Fast forward to today with and the new ship lines with radar she is not as powerful as she use to be but its still a good ship.

    New Ship Ideas

    I would also love to see the USS Laffey added and would snatch it up in a heartbeat as I have toured that ship many times. Unfortunately there is already a sumner class dd in the game the Yueyang from the pan asian line so doubt they would add another copy but looking at all the different fletchers we have in game anything is possible.
  3. If I remember when WG was investigating the sync drop issue it was not the sync drop itself . There were missions at the time to grind for ships and divisions were sync dropping and hoping to be on the opposite teams from their team mates then they would farm each other to complete the mission and not care about the outcome of the game. It was really bad when it was going on

    Zao or Venezia

    As a dd main I hate seeing venesia more than another other cruiser in the line up on opposing teams. Nothing like get hit and having 1/2 -3/4 hps gone in 1 volley. Those things are scary for dds
  5. I just saw one of the coolest things in the game. Just got killed on Two Brothers map and switch to map view to watch battle when a lightning strike hit a tree on top of the mountain and set it on fire. After it burned the tree then kept seeing what looked like a ghost peeking out behind the tree, Thought I was just seeing things at 1st but after zooming in it was there. What other things have I been missing that wargaming is hiding in other maps?
  6. I run Kuznetsov on my neutrashimy and I can't tell you how many times he has save my ship from dying with the will to victory skill kept me in the game then hide heal up then get back in the game. I think its one of the strongest skills that any of the special commanders have It has saved me from some bad decisions I've made
  7. If had the inclination and the dubs to throw on the Missouri I wouldn't be doing it for its credit earning potential (just getting a premium account is better), or even the uniqueness of it being a radar BB (again less unique with the Constellation being in game now), but rather because it's the USS Missouri. It's a collectors ship that has value beyond gameplay This statement sums it up! Not every ship I have in my port is there because of the way the ship plays. WG was crazy locking away one of America most famous BB's from being obtained other than crazy loot boxes or santa crates. There are players on here that love to play ships they have had the opportunity to visit and tour. I hate that the sumner class dd is in the pan asia line only but I still play it because after visit the USS LAFFEY I was on the ship by myself reading the history and the hairs on the back of my neck and arms started raising knowing how man men die right where I was standing. So having access to a famous ship or even a class of ship brings back memories to me at least of the time I was on that ship. That is one of the reasons I think this games does have some staying power. Some people buy these ships because the served,visited, or are just history buffs and it is fun for the casual player to jump in a ship they have fond memories of.
  8. Now that we have Ise, Tone, and dutch cruisers that have airstrike capabilities, and seeing as they are just catapult-launched I was thinking of another consumable that wargaming could add to the fighter/spotter slot. Mobile spotter for BB's. You would be able to launch a spotter plane but maneuver it just like the aforementioned ships do but it's just a spotter with no weapons but can help the BB that has lost all eyes and is at the mercy of DD,s, and stealth cruisers. While you were controlling the plane your ship would be on autopilot just like the other ships but the one difference is that when you switch back to your ship the spotter plane is dropped at the last location as you take back control over your ship. I'm proposing this being a DD main that does not like playing BB's all that much because of the slow game pace. I have been in many a game where I have won because the BB"s were all that was left and it was just a matter of torping them or running out the timer to win the game and they had no way to counter it. I would not want the spotter plane to have the same duration time as the normal spotter plane maybe just stay on station for 10 seconds give or take a few seconds and only have so many charges so can't be spammed all game but just when you need it the worst. That would be something that would have to be tested and tweaked. Again as a DD main, this would suck for me making me work harder for the win in the scenario I just described but I have always been one of those guys that look at an argument from both sides. Since the mechanic for this is already in the game now I don't think it would be hard to implement it and would help make the game more enjoyable for players that love playing BB's but get frustrated when you can't influence the outcome of a game because your blind.

    Ok the Kearsarge really?

    I maybe wrong but I see this as being a balance for BBs against DDs or stealthy CLs. How many times have you been in the game and you have better DD players on other team that wipeout opposing DDs and leaves you blind. At least with these in the game near the end a slow BB can still have an impact on the game. As a DD main I won many games by just running and grabbing caps while slow BBs just watch in frustration and can't stop it. Probably grab on myself just to have something different as I don't see these winning games single handedly like some BBs can do . I'm thinking they will play more of a support ship role like a cruiser with radar is to the team but can spot all the map instead of 12 max range
  11. The z31 is not a great ship but I have liked it so far . I had low expectations when I got it so was surprised how much fun I have had so far. Will it single handedly win games? No it is a support ship instead of a front line ship. The accuracy is amazing as someone said earlier .I have punished alot if cruisers that have thought it was an easy kill. Just have to know armor of the ship your shooting at. If your having trouble penning with ap just aim for nose or tail on BBs and CA that are broadside. CLs like was said earlier will overpen if too close almost everytime .These guns load slow but they shoot straight at what your aiming at so you can accurately aim at certain points of ships. As I said not a great ship but would not call it the worst . You can have good games in it just can't play it like a traditional dd. Edit : lol i type to slow just saw someone say the same thing in an earlier post so my post is pointless as everything I just said was already said.
  12. I do seem to be cussing rng a lot more lately when I'm in my destroyer. We have all been there you get caught out of position ,get radared and have 5 ships focus fire you. You duck,dive,dodge until the radar runs out and you escape barely alive and counting your blessing then that last salvo the red team fires after you have went dark sets you on fire. Rng baby gotta love it.

    So, Two Brothers... hmmm

    What is worse is when you see people start to do it and you tell them they are throwing there ship away only to have them succeed and then you have to listen to how great a strategist they are. I want to say you got lucky that the guys you were against were worse players than you are but I just keep my mouth shut and let them have their moment. It does drive you crazy because 9 out of 10 times it is a stupid play.
  14. This sums it up. I not the best or worst player but I can definitely tell a difference in the bronze,silver,gold leagues. Most people shoot for silver and after reaching just play for the required wins for steel/doubloons and then stop playing. I have been trying to qualify for gold league and wow the level of play is definitely better. Alot of unicum playing now that have not ranked out yet so you get to see what its like playing with more competitive/team players as opposed to what your use to seeing in silver/bronze where alot of people will just do there own thing and teams get steamrolled. I'm enjoying it so Ill keep trying to get that last star it get in but if you are have frustrations about moving up just play to get the steel/ doubloons WG gives you and go back to playing random or other events. Will be less stressful and the rewards are not that much more between silver and bronze.
