    Italian smoke

    Yesterday I was in a match with an Italian cruiser, two clan mates on the other team, and we were all on teamspeak. I was at a stop, them spotted. I hit the gas, and when at about 10 knots, I hit the smoke. 15 seconds later I was dead, blown apart while smoking, not firing, moving slowly. My clan mates were the closest, 10-11 km away, and had a good line of sight. They said my boat was visible the whole time, they never lost sight of my boat from the moment I was spotted, through the smoke, until I was sunk. They could tell I was smoking, but I never disappeared. My experience on Italian cruiser smoke is that it's bullsh*t. Has anyone else noticed this? Italian smoke that just highlites you and does not hide you?

    Scenario Analysis: Killer Whale (Version 2)

    Tried a third time. Could not designate the manual secondaries on anything. The secondaries went the whole round and did not fire. Another point. I noticed than when I Play a bb the bots seem to apply a LOT of attention to it. I saw bot ships switch from shooting at cruisers to my BB when I got in range, bot ships firing over the heads of not one but two closer player ships, like 5 and 7 km closer. I was the first ship to die. I've also noticed that there are not many players playing this scenarios with BBs any more. I've been the only one the last two times. So, maybe others have noticed this scenarios 'peculiarities?'

    Scenario Analysis: Killer Whale (Version 2)

    I tried again, and I could designate BB and cruisers, but I could not designate DDs. The enemy ships all have a red square over the target reticile which is odd. I'll try to get a screen shot

    Scenario Analysis: Killer Whale (Version 2)

    personal experience: dd players can zip in, bag the points and get out easily, leaving the slower ships to deal with the enemy dds that show up outside. Also, I have a New Mexico with manual secondary control. During the killer whale scenario, when I would try to select a ship for targeting, the square icon that should have appeared over them to indicate selection was replaced by a red icon, and MY SECONDARY BATTERIES NEVER FIRED A SHOT THE ENTIRE GAME. Is disabling the secondaries intentional for that scenario, or is it a bug? It sure made the game no fun at all with dds cruising 2-3 km away and my guns silent.

    The 10 ship players are now targets for the two CVs

    Yea, you are a target for the whole other team, but you can't effectively attack or defend yourself from the CV player. Just finished a game as a tier 9 Japanese destroyer: I was sunk by planes at 3 minutes 30 seconds into the match by swarming CV planes. None of which I shot down. This round I'm sure is gonna cost me 10,000 credits. Why in the HELL would a player voluntarily play a game where your best (only) strategy is to run away and hide, huddled next to a ship with decent AA while another player gets to pound you with impunity? I've played a round last week where one CV sank the remaining 4 surface ships (low tier little AA ships) leaving only the two CV players. Against DDs, YES the CVs are OP. Against low tier ships YES the CVs are OP. The dds no longer spot or cap, they run for their lives and die uselessly. It's not just me, how many dds have you seen playing the last few days?
  6. The CVs went from irrelevant to ruining the game. Just finished another round where it went down to the 4 CVs before the game timed out. I did not buy a Premium account so I could be one of ten targets for the CV players. The game is no longer fun.

    Why are we not seeing much CV vs Cv combat?

    Lyon needs heavy nerfs...

    I'm trying to play the Lyon now. 7-8 rounds now, and I've yet to get a citadel on a BB. the shells spray; you can't hit anything. It's just depressing when a bb so far off you can't see or shoot at him (Amagi, Iowa) is putting citadels on you. Bang. You are dead, once even before I got a chance to shoot. Just got citadeled by a cruiser at 7 km that I couldn't hit. Shooting over, shooting under, some so far off you don't even see them land when you are zoomed in at close range. Been playing for 3 years, and this BB is in WAY WAY over it's head against any tier 9 ship and many tier 8. 16 guns, yea. But you can't point them fast enough to shoot them, and go broadside to use them all and you die. Quickly.
