    How many 21 point captains do you have?

    Yes but already we are gonna have people with stuff locked in for the deadeye meta that don't get to change the build until that full reset. Since when Deadeye gets changed next patch only the BBs that picked it get reset. It's really hampering my ability to play t10s in randoms because I've only specced Daring, Smolensk, and Thunderer atm.

    Ground 2 so far, have 10 million commander xp waiting for the skills to be "finalized"

    Are You Going To Buy The Max Immelmann?

    Before I get a z44, but after literally everything else. Current thought is Yoshino,Pommern,Flint, Nuestra, Duke of York, Lazo, the low tier boats, then Max followed by Z44. At this rate of coal ships I may never have time to get the 3 unique commanders I’m missing. The quick cycle times and fast planes make it quite annoying to fight against with a good capt behind the wheel, was being zoned out very effectively in my Daring due to spotting . He could spot me, force a turn/smoke depending on distance to enemy or sightlines go get his strikes off on someone else and then the next wave is ready to spot me again in 20-30 seconds and repeat. As usual not really fun to play just dodge rather than get to use my ship capabilities for 15 mins of a 20 min game. When he finally was working the other flank I was able to finish a crippled GK and delay a cap to ensure our win but that battle was way more work than fun.

    Your COOP Battles with over 1000 BXP

    Wanted to maximize plane kills, including the cap fighters. if the Vermont had died on my team I would have waited longer and tried to kill planes all the way until the game was about to end on points.

    Anyone Else Notice The Accuracy of Bot Carriers Lately?

    I find I am having to turn into the rockets more to make them miss if my air detection is around 3-3.5 km in my DDs. My Charles Martel has been killed by AP dive bombers twice within the last month by Shokaku's. Most of the higher tier ships have enough AA to bring down bot planes though so they remain a minor annoyance via spotting and forcing wasd while giving lots of xp.
  6. Well I've got the damage but the kills elude me :P

    Your COOP Battles with over 1000 BXP

    Another solo queue Smolensk game. 1 overpen away from dieing about halfway through. Went ahead and recorded it too.

    Theory of Use - New German Destroyers

    Every ship now has 20% engine power without the skill.

    What do YOU want from a Supercontainer

    I've won 2 ships before in daily SC, Atlanta and then a Gascogne. I also remember when they gave out 300 special flags, I got 300 of the Dragon flags, might still have some of these in the stockpile. So personal order: 1. Ship 2. Steel 3. Doubloons 4. Coal
  10. Riga radar is like 18 seconds, 2 salves of his to dodge, 1 BB salvo. That's the worst radar cruiser to deal with as a Black this season. Kronstadt and Alaska are just juicy spotting targets now. 2-4ish km of radar buffer zone. Best practice is to spot them while already butt in, right at the edge of the radar. They pop it and you accelerate forward back out of range. Once it stops you have 1:30 or so to play closer/get the cap/ etc.

    Lexington Rant

    They can't be everywhere at once if they have to group up for AA right? But I pictured more a domination mode cap rather than a standard battle cap. With map awareness it is fairly easy to see when the opportunity arises. Only the other CV can strike you if you use terrain properly.

    Aegis Concealment problem for BB's

    North route is exactly where I want to be in any ship. Otherwise you end up with only bow shots at the 2nd and third wave which is the easy damage.
  13. As already mentioned the huge cost for 20 and 21 points isn't great, moving a high point capt between ships is more expensive, and the worst part for me is that during retraining you get no use of your capt skills while previously you got 50% of things like concealment expert or ifhe.

    Aegis Concealment problem for BB's

    Um hold H in the next battle and look at the smoke firing penalty for a battleship. Most of them are a few KM worse than your standard detection. Battleships can do good in Aegis if you position to get the broadside shots on the first 3 waves, but you have to be on the ball about damage control and torpedo dodging. You also want speed to get to the BB spawns and then cleanup the final spawn. Izmail/Fuso are probably the best due to gun count and armor. Next best Normandy/PeF. Here's one video, he has a ton more about all the scenarios and how to do it with different classes.

    Math behind secondaries nerf

    Um where was this discussed by WG? Don't remember seeing this. I take that for the 10% buff to main gun reload mainly. I wouldn't be opposed to adding accuracy to it as well though.
