    Can't enter random battles in superships

    I wish they'd tell us how exactly it works. I was trying to bring my W/L ratio back up in Hannover after getting plagued with a terrible losing streak, now it's going to bother my OCD forever.

    Is USS Congress Great?

    I don't know about that. I imagine it plays like a lower-tier Alaska that's a bit weaker. Probably fun.
  3. I was able to play several random battles with them but now I can't get in any. It says there are only a handful of ships in matchmaking range. I even ended up in a weird 1v1 with another Hannover (who unfortunately for me was an expert at keeping at the exact angle to deflect my shells). If I play a regular T10 I see many dozens of ships in matchmaking range.

    pan asian cruisers are a dud

    Cruiser line of Atlantas with a nerfed rate of fire. What's the point? Oh wait they added a lot of deep water torpedoes for some reason. So you play them as big destroyers. Okay what was the point of that?
  5. I can't explain how the Germans ended up with 128mm guns but the 203mm ones are specifically because the Admiral Hipper class was designed in accordance with treaty rules (although they cheated with several thousand extra tons) which limited the maximum gun caliber of heavy cruisers to 8 inches. Previously their closest caliber to that was 210mm. It's the same reason the H-39 class had 406mm (16") guns because they following (some) treaty rules. 305mm (12") was probably because they were trying to match the British 12" gun Dreadnoughts and 5mm is still half of a centimeter. Whole thing is rather silly I guess.
  6. Still wish they'd give the Preussen a main battery caliber that makes more sense. Germans liked metric so 450mm or 460mm makes more sense than 457mm.

    Warship T10 Tierlist

    And watch as a battleship that is one degree outside of the arbitrary auto-bounce angle gets citadeled multiple times by 8.6" guns at long range. Petro is a hideously unbalanced overpowered mess that is cancerous to fun gameplay. You take one, stay in spawn, point your bow towards the enemy, and then proceed to make life miserable for any player moving laterally on the map that gets spotted. And players will have to try to move laterally to damage you because everything up to and including 20" shells just bounces off of your 2" bow plating. You are effectively tougher to dislodge from your location than any battleship. But others think it is under-powered because despite the fact that its guns defy the laws of physics it has bad HE DPM to make up for all of its tremendous advantages. That is not a S-tier ship. The fact that they restrict them in ranked should be enough to tell you that.

    Warship T10 Tierlist

    Petro at F... right. Apparently about the only thing that really matters to this list is raw HE DPM. Having magic railguns that penetrate better than Bismarck's 15" guns and survivability better than many T10 BBs doesn't mean anything.

    I don't see the appeal. A weakened main battery in exchange for better AAA that still isn't all that great. It's not like AA combat in this game is interactive or fun enough to be a worthwhile trade. Main battery reload booster is an okay gimmick but is it worth going down to 8 from 10 guns?

    “Jets” are irrelevant.

    To be fair they wouldn't do these speeds while loaded down with thousands of pounds worth of munitions.

    “Jets” are irrelevant.

    Sadly this is true. Sometimes I look at the nice models and it disappoints me that they are nothing more than a skin on top of the weapon you're firing at an enemy ship.

    Here come the jets.

    Does this mean they will stop beating the FDR with the nerf bat? I had briefly considered getting one just because the thought of destroying ships with those impressive XTB2D Skypirates was tempting but now I might as well just toy with the USS United States instead once it's in testing (if they do the same thing). Which reminds me would WG PLEASE allow us to take super-ships into the training room?

    Royal Navy 15inch guns

    Managed to be a pretty good gun even by WWII standards.

    Here come the jets.

    Pretty cool though I'm still a bit concerned about how they are going to try to monetize superships eventually. At least they aren't allowing them to lob tactical nukes at warships.

    Upcoming RB bote Sevastopol

    Thanks. Considering all of the Soviet battleships or battlecruisers designs in the game that are from the early 1950s or have extensive hypothetical modernization from that time period it would be interesting to see this done with some other nation ships. An American or British battleships with a early 1950s automatic secondary battery and AAA would be impressive to see. Although considering the limited utility of secondaries in this game it probably wouldn't matter for much.
