    Adapt or quit?

    Ironmike same here!!!
  2. The Russian BB line is bogus! My only care is this crap just further has me playing less and what WG should be concerned about is me spending less well ZERO now. WG in the last year killed my original Clan and based on my play this year I am just about gone
  3. I will start spending again when: 1. The RN BBs are fixed. Monarch is gone Replaced by KGV and Nelson put in the line up in the Tier VII slot. Also the [edited] "Fire" gimmick is replaced. My love of the game started dying then. 2. The CVs fix is fixed again. With Squadrons treated more like rounds fired vs Wows Airplanes. All the beautiful CV ship modeling and what a waste. The CV players are only Flying! 3. The [edited] Russian BB line is scrapped. Give then the Tier III-IV The loaned HMS Royal Sovereign Tier V and the never completed Tier VIII. Lets stop the Overpowered [edited] ships from ruling the waves. The [edited] tanks are what ruined WOT. Russian overpowered anyone? They do seem to favor the Superior Russian Navy! 4. No Russian CV line. We Know its coming! Its a must! Another line of [edited] ships. I hate fake ships!

    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.
  5. [edited] Russian BBs Paper and imagination. WG will ruin WOWs as WOT is now. Well the Russian BB arrival marks my departure. Been here since Open Beta. Looks like I have 2019 to play and that's it. It was a good ride. But their is always another game to play out there.

    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.

    Monday Funday!

    Warspite for me!!!
  8. WG you screwed up!. Turn the aircraft squadrons into a AI controlled with mod options "round of ammunition fired" once launched at a target area. Survivors return reload /reinforce launch again. Players drive the CV like all other ships. Run planes just for recon if u want. and Fighter escort and cap. WG you blew it! I am pissed I wanted to play CVs. I wonder if I want to play any of my BB/CA/DD now. And the Essex is gone? What are you thinking? I played in the 1st CV test it was no fun and said so.

    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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  14. 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!!!
  15. 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
