    Matchup Monday - Scharnhorst vs. Nagato

    Nagato would have the advantage so long as it could keep the Scharhorst at range, around 12 plus km. Scharnhorst's 11inch guns do not perform well past 12 k. But if Scharnhorst can keep its bow turned in and close the distance, then her 11 inch guns will come alive and her torpedoes are the ultimate trump card. Further, I believe Nagato was the choice for pros in the last tier 7 ranked season.

    Cumulative Battleship Nerfs

    I'm on the fence. I'm a battleship main and do not believe BBs are as OP as some players make it out to be. BBs are criticized because players can get away with many more mistakes than when driving other classes of ships. The proposed changes do not address this problem.

    Premium Ship Review #111: Jean Bart

    Does anyone have a video they can insert of Burt Cooper telling Pete Cambel “who cars?” In Mad men? I think it would work here.

    Weekly MM Tier 8 Rant

    I'm in the "fix MM" camp for tier 8. My preference, however, is to see more missions/events for tier 6, 7,8,9, to get more players into those tiers to ease the tier 8 MM. I think the problem is everyone has a tier 10 and, per WG's admission, players do not keep their tier 9s. The results, IMO, is that there are a lot of tier 10s, a few tier 9s (if any), and the rest of the space being filled with tier 8s. Maybe I'm actually with Flamu (for once) and am just tired of the constant tier 10 events. Heck, if the "Hit Hard" event for Halsey mostly focused on 8-10. I'm tired of playing tier 10s and I'm tired of playing against tier 10s. I think player experiments are neat, but really, should be taken with a grain of salt. Things like timing, events, recent line releases, etc, can effect MM. For example, the calls to nerf BBs gets very loud when I new BB line is released.

    Saving Tier 8 - How do we do it?

    I agree tier 8 MM is a growing issue. Here are my two cents: 1. Identifying the problem: I don't know the science behind WG's MM. However, it has been my experience that, on a whole, when a tier ship is placed in a tier 10 game, the tier 8s make up less than a quarter of the each team. In addition, there does not seem to be nearly as many tier 9s. In fact, its rare for me to see games where tier 9 is the top tier; and when tier 9 is the top tier, they make up less than a quarter of the teams. The reason? Here are my theories: a. Higher population of tier 8s. This could be a number of reasons, including the ease of purchasing tier 8s, to popularity, to the fact that it does not take that long to grind to a tier 8 ship. In fact, I am guilty of constantly crapping out at tier 8. b. Lower population of tier 9s. There just seems to be too many bad ships at tier 9. With a lower population of tier 9s, teams are mostly comprised of tier 8s and 10s. c. Higher population of tier 10s. WG appears to have made a huge push for players to play tier 10 ships, including missions, clan wars, and ranked. Conversely, there is little reason to play tier 9s but for to get to tier 10 (unless you are playing the Missouri). 2. Solution: a. Make tier 9 competitive. Fix the dud ships. b. Give tier 9s special missions which might ease the strain on tier 8 MM. c. I hate to say it, but provide more premium tier 9 ships. d. I know this will not be popular, but maybe the repair cost of tier 10 battles needs to be increased. I know 2 years ago the tier 10 economy was brutal with many players unable to afford to play tier 10 games. BUT, it kept a healthy bell curve as far as the tiers were concerned. e. I'm not a huge fan of +/-1 MM. I don't like waiting for a game.

    Awful looking permanent camo...

    I'll take historical camo over some game developers failed attempt at abstract painting. I mean honesty, some of the camouflage WG produces is just awful to look at (e.g., Halloween camo; Christmas camo).
  7. I imagine this ship is going to go through extensive testing given the new consumable. So, I doubt the numbers will remain the same when the ship is released.

    Gasgone ?

    I agree with what others have posted as you should read LWM's review. In my experience, the Gascogne is a fun ship but she takes a lot of patience to play and play well. Her armor scheme is forgiving but her guns can be irritating.
