  1. @Kizarvexis the pink camo Balero class also needs a smoke consumable.

    to anyone curious about the games statistics

    @LookUpAndSpit I don't feel there are any more steamrolls now than before but I play mostly off peak hours with lots of unfair MM. In addition I have been meaning to run a time of battle test with 50+ matches during different day cycles to see if there is a trend but haven't really had the time to crunch the numbers to prove anything.

    to anyone curious about the games statistics

    Something I haven't really seen talked about as a reason for the slight dip in number of battles is the fact games are quite often going longer with the CV changes. It may just be perception but I have run into more games to timing out with multiple ships left on each side than prior to the changes. If you were averaging 8-9 battles (13-15 min games) before and 6-8 battles (15-20 min games) over the course of a two hour gaming session for example, that makes quite a bit of difference.
  4. IJN. Imo they are the most forgiving of mistakes since you have a longer range and can avoid return fire in a sniper duel.
  5. We can always talk about impossible missions, like get 5 citadels in a Ranger or spot 7 ships in a short queue 6 ship match or get 2 fires in a Leander. If I had a dollar for every impossible mission I could almost buy a ship bundle with it.

    Stronk Russian Battleships: First Impressions

    The Izmail made me feel like the Hood facing the Bismarck quite often. I have been deleted in 4 of the 8 games I have played in damned if you do damned if you don't crosssfires.The most egregious example was being taken out by a Massachusetts at @ 20km sailing out of smoke without getting a shot off in return.
  7. There are a couple reasons I like playing CV. 1. Since the rework, everyone started on the same level so it was easier to learn how to play it well and measure yourself against your fellow players. 2. I came from a MMORPG background as a support class player and like that a CV doesn't have a set role. Sometimes you can go dps sometimes you scout and play defensively and sometimes you do a mix of both. It gives you the most possible interaction with the battle if you can get your planes to the right place. 3. I don't care for the toxicity and poor MM t8-10 gameplay usually provides and t6 CV play is well balanced between punishing uptier game play and comfortable top tier play.

    Opening moves for carrier - what do you do?

    Depends on the ship make-up of the opposing team. With 4+ bb's I load torp planes and go hunting with 3+ dd's I load rockets and go hunting with 5+ ca/cl I still load rockets and scout and pray I don't get destroyed by AA.

    The next Ranked Season

    Between Clan Battles and this current ranked season, the focus seems to be shifting back to an emphasis on t10 play. I know I am not the only one that doesn't enjoy that tier. I wonder how long until another sprint season or some other option gets implemented to appease that part of the player base?
  10. I have noticed MM doesnt seem to be all that good with CA/CL ship types, playing as a CV I have run into a lot of games with clear AA advantages on one side or the other.

    Space Assault mode - HUGE success

    It was a huge success at convincing me not to bother with space battles.

    I have the worst RNG. 20 wyvern, 20 space camo and 37.5k coal.

    Naval Battles Not Getting Counted

    The other thing I can think of is a clan member attempting at the same time, finishing before you, raising the bar and not meeting the new requirement. Had it happen today, CV went from 900 to 1500 while I was in my attempt and failed because of it.
