  1. 100 MM Guns After The Buff

    That is teeechnically true, but even at max torp ranges, narrow spread still spreads out quite a bit. With wide spread at max ranges, you can sail like 3-4 Yamatos between the gaps. Any half-way decent player would dodge those with no problem. Just a suggestion.

    I opened up the video... and the first thing I saw was you firing wide spread torpedoes at max torp range. I would highly suggest almost never using wide spread torpedoes, particularly at long range.
  3. Looking for a Competitive Clan

    Mods, I'm going to respond to this only since there is some defamation at work here, but I will keep it civil. If my post needs to removed, I will gladly do so, but I don't feel it fair for our Clan to be defamed without shedding some light on the circumstances of the above statement. There will be no back and forth with the OP and this will be my only post on the subject. I just spoke a little while ago with my Lead guys in OPG3 to get confirmation on this, as well as their thoughts. Here they are: So, Oscar joined OPG3 in July of 2017. After which, he did not participate in Clan Activities, Clan Scrimmages, Clan Battles, rarely (if ever) Divisioned with other Members, and nobody can recall seeing him on Teamspeak in the last 8 months. In May of this year, he was moved to OPGS (our Social Clan) due to his extended inactivity stint in OPG3 (one of our comp Clans). As you can see, the above SSs provide a timeline. He was a part of OPG3 the better part of a year (July 2017 >>> May 2018) and was eventually removed for inactivity. After being moved to OPGS, you can see that he stayed there for around 3 weeks, then left. I presume this was due to his dissatisfaction with being removed from OPG3 which probably eventually led to his defamation against our Clan in this post. Based on his past history of activity (or inactivity) in OPG3 and OPGS, his statement is highly suspect and I refute it based on the fact that he rarely even interacted with Members of OPG3/S to begin with. As you can see from the above chart ( https://na.wows-numbers.com/player/1016753671,OscarMike_/ ) , from the time that Oscar joined to the time that he moved to OPGS, he was extremely inactive. Again, I strongly doubt he even got to know anybody here enough to make such broad sweeping statements about our Clan's overall character. However, despite that, I wish you good luck in your search for a new Clan!
  4. Is there a secret to winning with Montana?

    To be fair, I was making some sweeping assumptions based on my experience in trawling through hundreds of individual's stats and from my own personal experience. It does seem that many matches are lopsided, but that could just be confirmation bias speaking. In looking at your stats, I do see that you are averaging less than 1 kill per game. Profiles that have "above-average dmg", but "below avg w/r" *generally* mean that the player is focusing BBs. That, combined with your average of less than 1 kill per game but your statement affirming that you do, in fact, focus the correct targets suggests a few things to me: - You need to make sure that you are finishing off weak targets, particularly ones that are out of the effective range for your DDs and Cruisers to deal with. This prevents them from coming back later on, healed up, to do more dmg to your team. - Perhaps you are not making effective use of crossfire in cooperative effort with other ships on your team? The Montana shines from catching things broadside with an accurate, heavy-hitting salvo. If you are not sneaking your Monty into unexpected locations, you are not maximizing her effectiveness. Sometimes, you need to go a short period without firing to sneak into a better position while stealthed up. Force your enemies into a position where they either have to give you broadside... or your team. That's about all the advice I can give by looking at your stats and making some inferences from them.
  5. Is there a secret to winning with Montana?

    Absolutely. Just last night, I had a really frustrating experience with two tier 10 BBs- a Yamato and a Montana. They were in position to hold a flank and help us cut the enemy team down if they had been closer. Instead, they both hid at max range, behind an island, at FULL health, and only when everyone else was dead or almost dead and the wolves were upon them did they bother to fire up their engines. Of course, by that point, they were vastly outnumbered and lasted less than 2 minutes. Full health to dead in 2 minutes because they didn't bother to throw their HP in earlier when it actually mattered. All they had to do for us to win was to tank while other ships on our team were still alive. That's it. Our team begged them to get involved, but they refused. If you aren't using your HP for your team as a BB, you are not fulfilling your role.
  6. Is there a secret to winning with Montana?

    I would disagree with that first sentence wholeheartedly. You can ABSOLUTELY affect your W/R. Overall Division Stats: Overall Solo Stats: I actually win more playing the Monty solo than in a division. However, my damage is a little lower while playing solo. I suspect this is because I don't have a DD in my division, so I focus DDs more when solo. Lately, I've also started to play the Monty like an absolute madman, using concealment to get in stupid close, then turning away before firing, firing right at the edge of concealment, then kiting out. Again, you have to be wary of DDs while doing this, but it's extremely effective. I use all 5 repairs almost every game. Look at the difference in damage numbers while playing it this way: Last 21 days: So, yes, I'd wholeheartedly agree with your assessment that it's not his gunnery that's the weak point. It's probably his positioning, lack of tanking for his team, or target prioritization. If most of that damage you have is from farming BBs, you are doing it wrong. Of course you take shots on BBs when they are in a compromising position, or there is nothing else to shoot, but deleting cruisers and destroyers wins the games.
  7. Is there a secret to winning with Montana?

    ^^^This man Montanas. Also, take almost every survivability trait you can (except for the one in the rudder shift upgrade slot). I HIGHLY recommend this build: Yes, it's lacking in AA staying power, but you don't get CVs every game and HE is generally what takes down BBs 90% of the time if you are playing it properly anyway. A tradeoff, but one I'm willing to make. Also, use the special damage control module on the first slot. IIRC, damage control lasts over 20 second on the Montana with that installed. If you combine all of this, you are incredibly tanky (as long as you manage damage), very resistant to HE, and can get in closer and do work. Be mindful of DDs and position around them, make SURE to nuke DDs when you have the chance, and you'll win more. Hope that helps. Montana is probably my favorite tier 10 BB, besides the Republique. Yamato is powerful, it's just boring to play. @Uncle_Lou

    We... *cough* do have a few weabs, but we try to keep them contained and quarantined.

  10. Stat Tracking Self-Improvement

    I absolutely agree with you. 100% However... It's much easier to take a player that shows extreme ability, proficiency, and natural talent in Randoms and then change their mindset to the proper CBs mentality than it is to take someone who is decidedly average or below average to begin with. Granted, you will have those stubborn damage farmers who can't make the transition and they have to be culled. Still, I'd rather start with someone who can actually land their shells and mitigate damage than not. In that regard, this tool absolutely has utility; or any stats-measuring site/tool for that matter. I treat Random Battle stats like companies treat a college degree. Random Battle stats just get your foot in the door and get you an interview (like a college degree). THEN, you have to prove you can put your money where your mouth is in CBs and play as a Team for the win, sacrificing your body if need be.

    My name is DOCTOR_CITADEL and I endorse this message. @Spartias has delivered, once again, yet another top-notch, high-utility, google sheet. It would be worth your time to check it out! Trust me, I'm a doctor.
  12. RIP! I'm trying to recall how that game went, but I can't remember. I think that's the only game I've lost in the last month.
  13. OP Team Kill for the (red) win!

    The reality is that we choose not to participate in all of the needless drama. Meanwhile, some of our ex-members that were actually kicked/removed/left because they were toxic actively choose to participate in coordinated smear campaigns against us out of spite. If there is actually a legitimate issue with one of our Members, feel free to contact their Clan Leader (or me) directly. Varying levels of repercussions are present and repeat offenders are dealt with.
  14. OP Team Kill for the (red) win!

    If one of our Members was *actually* involved in an intentional TK incident, I'd like to know about it. Feel free to PM me so I can address it directly. If it was *not* one of our Members, then I'd appreciate if we were not implicated in other Clans' affairs in a negative light. [OPG], [0PG], [OPG2], [0PG2], [OPG3], [OPGS], [0PGS], and [OPGS_] are the *only* Clans that are a part of OverPowered Gaming. We have a Code of Conduct and we enforce it if made aware of violations. I look forward to your response. Cheers!
