    Coal ship purchases - check my thinking.

    It is for this reason that I am saving my over 350K coal - seeing the ships recently posted on dev blog (Smolensk, Colbert, Somers)….may be worth waiting. Yoshino seems interesting, but could be a hot mess like Azuma. If you like JB, more power to you. I passed on JB - hated the Richelieu playstyle, betting it is more of the same. Have Des Moines - pass on Salem

    Space Battles - Not a fan You?

    I don't love or hate it, have not hit the space battle button and will not. Took one look at the rewards and said no thanks: - Ships that will be removed in 0.8.3 - Unique Modules which I already have - Captains that I don't need - Permanent camo for ships that I already have perm camo for - Signals that I already have too many of In my opinion just a waste of time, effort and money that could be re-directed to the real problems.
  3. 315K Have Des Moines - don't need Salem Hated Richielieu playstyle - JB is the same = pass Will be used on Yoshino - initial stats came out of dev blog a couple of days ago.

    What's our Reward?

    Keep holding your breath...it will come This is the reason why I switched to strictly coop and operations.

    Warship Wednesday - Current Vessels

    1. Lightning 2. FDG 3. Alsace Grinding all Was playing British ships exclusively, then came to my senses and realized the Exeter is not worth having to play randoms.

    Your MOST played Premium ship?

    Overall: Don't really play any of these anymore - except MO. Atlanta - used it to train Cruiser and DD captains. Will go into retirement now as picked up Flint. Missouri - um.....credits Belfast - DD killer extraordinaire, found better Cruisers for my playstyle with torps. Texas - got me through the US BB line. In retirement as have Arizona, Alabama and all the rest. Current: Wichita - Wanted it since Alpha Test, fits my playstyle Alaska - Wanted it since release. Not disappointed. Cossack - normally hate DD's but this is the first that has agreed with me....and I only paid $1!

    Your LEAST played premium ships?

    Albany - don't play tiers this low Duca D'Aosta - hate the playstyle Indianapolis - would rather play New Orleans, Pensacola, Baltimore, Wichita All 9 of the ARP ships - no camo = no go Ishizuchi - rather Arkansas Beta Katori - I really don't know why I am keeping it PEF - after the marathon, there is really no reason to play it Gallant - one of the worst DD's I have

    Just what I need...more camo to go with my thousands that never get used. If I play a ship in randoms, it gets perm camo.

    What to spend Florins on?

    Seeing that you commented in an earlier supercontainer post about getting nothing but "useless flags".....I would let them sit in the Arsenal until they magically turn into credits.

    Exeter Marathon is ridiculous.

    Your concentration is all wrong in my opinion. I have had no problem completing all missions in Coop (pretty regular to do 100k damage in a match).....until the stage 4 requirements this morning - I knew about it 3-4 weeks ago however. The requirement for 7 awards is going to be a bear - especially if you are Coop mainline (there are no awards offered). At least if Operations were an available game mode there would be a chance. Have to decide if it is worth the blood, sweat, toil and tears of entering randoms to get awards - for a sub-par cruiser because I know she is not worth shelling out $35. Looks like Exeter will not be mine...until perhaps Christmas 2019.
  11. Yet another reason to hide your stats.

    Yea...no As said before have no chance of winning if you don't spend every waking moment on the game....sorry I have a life. Besides, I already have both of these ships...the DB would be nice, but no chance of that.
  13. Good post Agree with Huang He and Buffalo - did not think I would like them, but both surprised me. Also agree with Richelieu - scares me off of Jean Bart as they are sister ships, am at 300k coal with resisting buying her. Hopefully Yoshino will be a better buy. Don't have Tirpitz, but for Bismarck - I don't go with a full secondary build. Took Aim Sys 1 in third slot for the main battery accuracy boost, seems to help. Still can pull 9.9km for secondaries with flags - seems good enough when combined with manual secondaries on CO.

    British Tier 8 Premium Cruiser Suggestions

    Too many light cruisers - rather stay with the Exeter standard of Heavies: For UK: County Class Heavy Cruiser London - at tier 8, refit after refit in Dec 1942 (with radar and Torps). Looks like Crown Colony class, but with 8' guns. County Class Heavy Cruiser Kent - at tier 8, Oct 1943 (even refitted late armor scheme may be too light for tier) For Commonwealth: County Class Heavy Cruiser Canberra - at tier 7, Aug 1942 as she was upon her sinking at Savo Island.
  15. Love: Vanguard - yes the guns are a little lackluster and somewhat squishy armor at tier VIII, but the rudder shift and turn rate are great....use HE for the majority of the match then AP with broadside targets - it works well enough + the shells go where you want to. Just don't go head to head with any equal or higher tier BB - she is not a brawler. Prefer her over Monarch any day. Wichita - pulling 35+ kt out of a US cruiser, bouncing 16" shells at the right angles and being rewarded for knowing when to use HE and when to use AP. It has made me a better player overall as it demands you to switch shells throughout a match. I prefer it over Baltimore. Pensacola - oh man the pen angles on the AP. Angle correctly and she is not so squishy (as long as you don't go against a BB). Tier VI monster in Randoms and Operations for me. Hate: Any Japanese DD with the current CV's - could really say any DD period, but Japanese especially. Moskva - great guns but the turn rate and rudder shift just are not for me.
