    Should I skip HMS Emerald?

    I love the Emerald! I know I am a out there on this but she is great. The Leander is the ship I hate. lol To each their own.

    What angers me most about HE

    I hate being a BB HE player but after the last 5 games in a BB I will have to become one. The DD players have learned they can charge at any tier a BB and close to point blank range and the BB can not dodge the torps. Even the Yammy cannot survive 6 or 8 torps. The DD just cannot be damaged enough. Each DD has enough hit points for at least 3 charges at BBs. That's 3 BBs dead! The cruisers who should support the BBs cant survive without hiding so the BBs are dead. HE is the BBs only hope. Sad WG has so screwed up HE.

    Vanguard with Warspite guns?

    I was wrong! I have seen the light! It just took a couple games. Still have to watch the broadsides but She is worth the $$$$$. No mega sails in her but the wheel has turned.

    I think I've hit the tier VIII wall

    I agree with the above players. Its a combination. I am no God player either. Beta tester and 1st year 45% win rate???? Last 2 years 52% approx. I remember Tirpocalyps! 10 Tirpitz per side lol My Tirp is a 44-45% win rate and its gotten worse in the last year. 18-19pt Capt. I blame MM and T10s up-tier. Still she is fun. Play with a team. My win rate is so much better playing with a team. Join a Clan.
  6. I will say in positive for the Vanguard She is quick and responsive on the rudder and Guns are very nice (those that you can afford to fire). I got a nice citadel on a NC. Have had no fire issue but I have a max anti-fire build. Her AA chewed up the Dive Bombers well enough. But you will give (or will be taken) your broadside sooner or later heck even good defense angle. When you do watch out. Vanguard gets gutted of hit points like the French Dunky does. 203mm gunfire is shocking effective at range at taking big chunks of points at any angle. Vanguard's secondary's are a waste of deck space. Slow no range quite sad. It is interesting the "Reviewers" differing opinions. I like Noster love his vids and straight talk but am not seeing it on this ship. Now I will say The Tiering up maybe Vanguard's biggest issue. But 203mm is 203mm Zao - Atago its rate of fire and range that changes not pen? I hate to think what the USSR super guns will do to her. Still all said I have 2 wins 1 loss. Was carried BIG by the team in the one win and earned my keep in the other. The loss was ugly. And its only 3 games. Who knows the learning curve might be a long slow take-off then shoot straight to the moon? Maybe. I am a Avg player batting 52% for the last 2 years 48% overall. So I am no God. LOL
  7. Mouse is spot on. I have over 1000 sails in the Warspite and Vanguard is no Warspite! Vanguard eats Citadels. I have but 2 games in her with a 19pt Captain but a Zao took 20K off the Vanguard with AP 17-18 KM off! And I was Bow on! Wait till you see what a Iowa does to her on a broadside shot 16km out. You evaporate! The health bar loses big chunks at a time. Ouch! I had a 30% off coupon so paid just under $40. I believe I wasted the $.

    Vanguard with Warspite guns?

    I have just 2 sails in the Vanguard with a 19pt Captain and I can tell you she is GARBAGE. I hate to say it but she is no Warspite (1000 plus sails in the Warspite). Vanguard can not handle being up-tiered. A Zao took 20K at 17 km off me with AP and I was angled mostly bow on! The Vanguard eats citadels like I eat M&Ms. A Iowa took 35K off me at 20km? The other game was a joke as well The ship damage bar was lose 20% lose 20% heal lose 30% then Dead! Its a shame what WG did to the RN BB line. A crime really. Well I used a 30% off coupon so she cost just under $40. but that is $40 wasted. I can say I have never been disappointed in a "Gold" ship till now.
  9. The HE and the KGV. HE HE HE is all the past Tier 5 line ships fire. A crime. KGV on Ship cover duty (Not shore bombardment) carried 90% AP 5 % HE and 5% training and they did fine. But WG wanted FIre Fire Fire and derate the KGV to a Tier 7 and piss the Nelson away. Please. I do own both I should add. The paper Monarch lol lol. You have a good evening! And Happy Sails!!!
  10. I quit a month ago. The event is miserable. This coming from a RN fan! Actually I am finding WOWs a grind period. But I admit, I've been pissed at WG for what they did to the RN BB line. Its criminal. Orca86
  11. After what WG did to the RN BB line and the KGV especially, I do not care. My interest died and the money flow to WG ended.

    I liked what I saw overall Refund $ to all the Gold Ship players who want to sell back. You will be getting my $ and a whole lot more others. The current play-style is crap.
