    Mouse on "Balance"...

    Close Lert, but the actual ratings are: If it kills me= overpowered If I kill it = working as intended If I don't kill everything in it = underpowered. 😋
  2. Ah elite player input can be very detrimental. Showing my age but was a Dark Age of Camelot Player back in 2000 Ish. We all thought it was a great idea when they reached out to high rank pvpers for what the game needed. Turns out what the elite players wanted was a way for elite players to get more elite they were tired of getting dog piled.the changes did not go well. because someone excels at a game it does not automatically follow they have good ideas about CHANGING the game. .
  3. Ok got my hands on a Tier 5 French DD and thought "why not take it out for a drive". The only experience I have with French Vehicles are their cars. ok first thing I noticed was the thing had no smoke generator this is actually kind of a trait of French Automakers they reville in not having the things every other car on earth possess, well no biggie. once she reached top speed I noticed that compared to other DDs she's really not that fast there is a way to make her go faster but that's probably not safe. (French car analogy 2 fun 0) in attempting to operate her I immediately lost my steering followed shortly by the loss of the drivetrain. I fixed this but it was Immediately broke once again by normal usage . Also like a french car she was now producing a lot of smoke but it did not seem to help matters. then I ran into a rock. A moment later I was again a pedestrian(swimmer?) My only conclusion is that someone on the WOW development team owns a French car and has perfectly recreated the experience for the player base.

    What is the worst ship in your opinion?

    I haven't seen it so I'll call out the Omaha. A tier 5 that can be pulled up to tier 7 made of glass with 50 little guns pointing in 40 different directions no smoke and chitty torpedoes. Makes Emerald look good.

    I'm better than you

    Gratz on another 10 , I hope you have someone to play against as I exit yet another battle with yet another green armchair admiral abusing everyone in chat. Think I'm due a long vacation soon.
  6. Flavor ? screen doors and radiation leaks come to mind, oh and self immolating ordinance at higher tiers, their special ability can be "blame the Americans."

    Submarines.

    Premiums should be pretty easy "this month get premium tier 5 U-101 in the store for 29.99. Next month get Premium tier 6 U-102 for 39.99. Next month get premium tier 7 U-103 for 49.99. ..............$"

    I'm tempted to Quit This Game

    I'm no great player myself but if I might suggest the Iron Duke at tier 5 in the British BB tree is an excellent ship to learn in good enough armor, and great He makes the guns easy to use. It's a good ship to learn to gauge the flow of battle in. The slower pace of a bb would let you pay more attention to the overall postioning an fight.

    WGing vs Beached whales (Frozen wallets)

    Lol I blame auto correct. You'll note walenaught was spelled correctly lol.

    WGing vs Beached whales (Frozen wallets)

    the topic of Whales and how much they spend is not clear because, the term has evolved. Early Whales were Whales of the line , who were replaced by the whaleclads which evolved into the protected whale, these were over taken by the whalnaught that was upstaged by the super whalenaught, and they were made obsolete by Fast Whales. Eventually all Whales will be replaced by CVs..........😜

    The Case for IJN Long Lance

    This is a fascinating discussion on the Type 93 (I think I fall into the RC1138 camp the thing was more trouble than it was worth), but one factor I see missing is the fact that the type 93 was designed for a war that never happened. Japan was firmly in the decisive battle camp for naval strategy. prewar japanese planning involved drawing out the american fleet harassing it all the way to the area of the Philippines then engaging the worn down fleet with fresh japanese forces. then as they had done to the Russians force favorable terms on the defeated nation. the type 93 was created with this fight in mind. on a multi thousand mile trip superior torpedo range for the harassing force would have been an excellent advantage. At the end fleet surface engagement mass volleys of long range torpedo fire would have also been of great use. the weaknesses of carrying around deck mounted Liquid oxygen bombs would be minimal for a skirmishing force planning to avoid direct combat, and only a one time risk for the major fleet action at the end. The japanese navy put too much faith in what it learned fighting the russians in the early parts of the century. The war Japan wound up in was nothing like what its navel planners envisioned when creating the type 93. the long drawn out fight across the pacific and the rising effectiveness of air power and radar badly blunted any chance of the type 93 becoming a war winning weapon. I think in many way the type 93 indeed mirrors the German Panzer 6 (Tiger) tank. Great idea on paper not executed as well in reality and not used in the manner it was originally intended for( the Tiger was originally intend to lead attacks, by the time it was operational Germany was in full defence mode). Could the type 93 do things no other torpedo could do? Yes it could. did the performance of the type 93 recoup the investment in its development, or the losses it inflicted on it's own forces compared to if they had been armed with a more stable less capable conventional torpedo? the evidence seems to indicate no. as a last thought I think the type 93 sits as one of the very first "wonder waffa" it along with the Tiger,V2, Me262, Yamoto class BBs. were weapons that were through superior performance going to neutralise the huge economic advantages of the enemy. none of these weapons pulled their weight in the war and all were out performed by less radical designs that emphasized reliability over excessive performance goals.
  14. Ok jimbo I break down what your saying as "dds stop me from executing my tactical plan" sadly that is the mission of the red team. It's not really overpowered they are just being more effective. Actually DDs took a hit with the introduction of rocket planes and the cv rework. Yes they have good games, but often as not they get hammered. I actually think they are in a good place right now they can be played well but they are not loaded with I win buttons. I've played up to fletcher but I'm not a dd main by any streach. I don't like it when 20 15/20 km torpedoes come cross country but only a few dds can do it, and they probably don't like 12/16 over pens/he flyin the other way either. Original poster, best thing you could probably do is go play up a few dd lines to get a feel for them. The Best defense you can have is to know what the dd skipper is going to try to do. The best players know that AND they already know what they are going to do to the dd when they try it. Look at the other team are there 5 dds on it ? If so slow + near island the only advantage you will gain is the bad swimmers on your crew will probably make it to the island when the torps sink you. Speed can be life. conversely speed out in front of 5 bbs your ca will be converted into a submarine in about 30 seconds. Every fight is different and every captain must read the maps and the team make ups then use that knowledge to fight his ship effectively.
  15. Have to recommend two (although scharnhorst is a good choice) but many folks love warspite cause she will always do that thing you like.(sink the red ships) and she has a history like no other. The other is west Virginia 41 she has crazy over match and a lot of history also. They are both tier six you might see a lot of tier 7 but they can handle it. Tier 8s tend to get pulled into 9/10 tier fights so match making should be good.
