    Destroyer Guide to Countering Carriers

    Another video on a controversial topic with very little useful information. Classic zoup.

    QQing is ruining the experience for everyone

    Actually attention is the preeminent currency of the social media era. Outrage is one of the more effective methods used to earn it.

    Game Losing It's Appeal

    Fact. There is no going back, only forward. People calling for a rollback to RTS are wasting their time.

    Dear WG: 3 deep faults of the CV rework design

    What worries me is that this may have been WG’s intention all along.
  5. Dedicated tier 8 would be amazing. Randoms, ranked, clan battles, anything. Just give me a place to play the $500+ worth of premium tier 8 ships I’ve purchased over the years.
  6. Bingo! This guy gets it. The best matches happen at tier 6 and 7. Tons of variety of ships, with lots of REAL ships that actually got built. The maps are better, the overall balance of thr game is better, tons of fun premium ships, etc. If you are a decent player, especially one that plays solo, I recommend playing tier 7 or lower. During the first 6-8 months of the full release of this game, tier 10 was special. Partly because it takes time to get there and also it was expensive to play tier ten, so better players could afford to play more tier 10 games. Those days are long gone and will never return. Tier 10 is actually the worst tier in the game for consistently competent gameplay.
  7. Nobody cares what rank is next to your name. If it is that important to you go earn 13 stars and you will have your rank 1 again. Good players will earn it in 1-2 play sessions.

    Daring. Why?

    No, they were not garbage at all. I played up the entire line immediately and had zero issues with them. Just bad players complaining and refusing to learn and adapt to new ship lines, just like the RN DDs right now.

    Daring. Why?

    Yeah, don’t skip the Jutland folks. The guns behave differently than the 120mm and you should try the tier 9 before burning free xp. My advice is free xp the upgraded hull on the Jutland then play it. If you like it you will unlock the Daring soon enough (20-30 games with premium, flags, and camos). If you don’t like it theres no need to continue to the Daring. Also, for those reading all the “RN DDs are garbage” posts: pay attention to who is saying these things, many are simply not very good in destroyers. Not trying to be mean but its the truth. This exact same thing happened when german DD were released, near universal outcry about how terrible the entire line was, which was total nonsense of course.

    Shimakaze has been heavily buffed

    5.08 according to wows fitting tool so yeah 5.1 in game. I spent the dubs to move him to my gearing. Double strike is way more common in gearing than DM, Wooster, or Monty

    Mouse and the CV Rework

    This is accurate. You can fit the entire current CV playerbase into one living room.
  13. The original question is “why are there so many below 50% WR players at tier 10”. One theory I’ve held for awhile now is that player retention in this game is actually higher for bad players. Above average players are more likely to leave the game or take extended breaks from it, but the bad players seem to keep playing. The RNG and terrible teams are more frustrating for good players since they know how to play and how to win. A lot of bad players aren’t bothered by those things because they are oblivious to them. Example: When a unicum BB player gets 5 k damage on a broadside cruiser at 8km he/she gets pissed because they know they got screwed. The 40% player in the same situation just thinks thats normal. Unicums expect results and potatoes are suprised by them. Over time this style of game will drive away competent players at a higher rate than bad players. So the lifespan of a unicum player creates lots of below average players, but the unicum eventually stops playing and the bad players stay. This cycle repeats over and over with the net result: a high concentration of below 50% winnrate players at tier 10.

    Playing for "Fun"

    I think we are talking about different things. I don’t want people telling me exactly how to play in game either. But every single time i see the excuse “I play for fun”, its been a clueless player that refused to participate in any way, often running to far off corners of the map or hiding behind a random island. Or maybe yolo rushing in while half the team begs them not to. I guess I don’t agree with people joining an online multiplayer team based game mode then immediately saying “screw you” to the entire team.
