    Playing against CV's

    Than you for admitting that CVs make the game unplayable. Especially 2 CV games. What you call "Abusing the system" most people refer to as "Playing the game". Yes, working against a griefer is hard work. That's why most games ban griefers. So entire teams don't have to sail in circles while the griefer gets to take pot shots at us with no way to retaliate.

    Player's Native Language and the NA server

    Nice job virtue signaling over a thread that's been dead for 4 years.

    Why is Ranked Sprint 12 so bad?

    Easy. Because I play WoWS for fun. Ranked hasn't been fun for years. So it doesn't get played.

    Des Moines - which 3m mod and play style tips?

    Reload. Play style: Forget you have a back turret. Hug Islands like you're Joe Biden.

    RDF Needs To GO

    Or a Harugumo vs a Shimakaze. Without RPF, the Gumo is going to have serious problems with being out spotted. With RPF? The only chance the Shimakaze has is to land a torpedo hit. Otherwise the Gumo will eventually win because the stealth advantage has been negated. The Gumo knows exactly where to turn to engage the Shimakaze or where to turn to no longer be spotted. You can also notify teammates where the DD is long before they've first been spotted.

    RDF Needs To GO

    It's pretty much a required second 4-point skill for DDs. It's the closest thing to a wall-hack you'll get in the game. Game breaking, in that it gives me information that I simply should not have. Be it blind-torping enemy DDs or calling a flank/cap clear or not clear, it's useful on both torp and gun boats. It should never have been added to the game.

    is the Friesland still a great ship?

    Combined with the hydro, you can spot every torpedo on a flank fired at your team. I personally don't run Vigilance, but can understand why someone would. Personally, it's an extremely situational ship. You'll have games where you burn everything and games where you're lucky do do anything other than spotting.

    6x47 Case at the gunshow.

    There’s a gentleman at the local gunshow this weekend that did some development work with autoloading 6” naval guns. He said that these were one-piece fixed ammunition, with the projectile crimped in at the factory. I didn’t get any contact information, but he will be here tomorrow and Sunday if there if anyone wanted me to get their info.
  11. There is no middle ground. That’s the problem, due to the all-or-nothing nature of stealth in the game. DD play consists of doing stupid stuff at the right time. A good DD player is just better at doing stupid stuff than the bad DD player.
  12. This is the problem. You play it safe and the enemy takes all the caps. They can now kick back and plink at your team as their points advantage grows. What do you do then? My latest Solo Warrior was because the enemy team didn’t find their man-pants to retake the caps until too late in the game.

    Is the GK's legendary mod useless?

    The LU for GK is fantastic. Was the first one I went for IIRC.

    Elephant in the Room: Atlanta IFHE

    How do? You didn’t run IFHE on them? Did you?

    I have a question for you DD players.

    As a DD main, Radar can make it Impossible to do anything meaningful. Yes you can “play around” the radar. What you can’t do is play to win while playing around the radar. You can minimize the damage, but you’re still going to get hurt by the I win button. Both US and RU radar is ridiculous for different reasons. US for its duration and RU for its range. I should get banned for the stuff I do in my Des Moines. Radar and RPF should have both been removed ages ago. CVs are basically “I Win” at the end of a close game vs a DD. Beginning they can be nothing or get you killed with no counter.
