    German Super Cruiser Clausewitz

    you do realize that Clausewitz has 50mm of deck armor, allowing it to auto-bounce all battleship guns?

    Suggested US DD Supership/Premium

    wasn't it even calculated a while ago that the Kremlin physically could not float, or was it debunked?

    Another 'Weekend' Post

    I died in a close quarters fight with a Renown because my monke brain on autopilot thought it was a Repulse, and ended up eating four torpedoes

    Things we'd like WOW to fix

    Yeah you're pretty disconnected with how the game actually works, especially given how we have paper ships that never existed running around. Real life has little meaning; game balance matters first. The US ships don't suck at all compared to other ships, and it is totally possible to carry entire games and lay waste to enemy ships, and slaughter Yamatos with a Montana. In fact, many of the ships can literally be considered the best of their tiers. You can even kill a Yamato using a heavy cruiser if you play it correctly. Your expectations for them are probably way too high and you're just using them completely wrong. An Iowa class mindlessly dive bombing into a group of Japanese battleships and cruisers wouldn't last in game, nor real life. Yamato was kept away because it was expensive to move it around and consumed a lot of resources that the Japanese didn't have. The bigger threat was air attack, rather than battleships which the Yamato was specifically made to deal with. Beaching it would've prevented from sinking from any sort of attack; it would also be a logical choice for an Iowa facing against 4 Yamato-class ships without any route to escape.

    Is this satirical? US ships are very good, they had many premiums that were removed from being a bit too good, like the Alaska, Mass, Georgia, Enterprise, etc. Their tier 9-10 battleships (except for the vermont line sometimes) are usually regarded to be some of the best in the game, because of how versatile they are and how they are not dependent on gimmicks that could potentially handicap them. Their cruisers aren't nothing to ignore either, with Baltimore and Des Moines being excellent cruisers for their tiers. You're likely just playing the ships wrong. If we're assuming WG gives bias to certain nations (which perhaps I do agree with), US probably is the 2nd most biased nation, just behind USSR

    Can rental ships be used to complete missions?

    Yes. I used a rental Massachusetts to complete a black friday mission one time.

    Still love the JB

    The one event that used up all of my WOWS luck was winning the Jean Bart in one of their black friday giveaways when they used to do weekly videos on the premium shop. Really nice ship with comfortable gunnery and speed.

    Did this event happen?

    Also some sort of Essex with the pancake fighters

    Any tips for baltimore?

    But the Smolensk reloads faster. Therefore with your logic regarding the Baltimore, Des Moines is crappy. The best way to play Des Moines would be to earn Smolensk.

    Why bother playing DM when you have Smolensk, then? Smolensk reloads faster. Therefore, Des Moines is trash. Am I making any sense? No, I don't. That's what you sound like right now. Just because a higher tier ship has a better reload doesn't mean it's a bad ship. If you think Baltimore is bad then so is literally every other heavy cruiser in the game. You are lost and confused.

    What the hell do you mean by a slow reload? It's the fastest for a Tier 8 heavy cruiser.

    Any tips for baltimore?

    Last time I played, Baltimore was a pretty solid ship. Use the AP often against broadside cruisers and battleships, they especially hit hard. Your 27mm of bow armor will allow you to tank against battleships with 15 inch guns, so use that to your advantage. Other basic US cruiser tactics can apply, you can sit behind an island and sling HE. And obviously don't get concentrated or shot at first Try to position near islands as I said before since this will allow you to quickly get into cover if you need, and staying with friends is always helpful.
