    Ranked out in an Underated ship

    USS Sims. I ranked out in 20 games. She is an old premium but she can still contest a cap better than most DDs.
  2. I get your point. But I like my premium ships to have some history to them.
  3. Eh, an OP USN BB is fine by me given Colorado is on the weaker end.
  4. Hi Wargaming- First, I really like your game. I've had a lot of fun over the last two in a half years. But, in light of the announcement of the battleship Ohio, it seems you are running out of ideas for premium ships. So, here is a helpful list of ships that I feel deserve premium treatment. I invite others to add to this list. USN 1) USS Washington. Common WG, this ship has the history and the looks. She clocked a Kongo class without suffering any significant damage. She deserves to be in the game. 2) West Virginia (1944-1945). The better question you should ask is why hasn't it been introduced? 3) USS Nevada (1944). Give the GC a run for the OP category already. 4) USS Pennsylvania (1944). A modernized Arizona with AA. What's not to love? 4) USS Laffey. Did you know Mel Gibson thought about making a movie about this ship? I bet you didn't because you were blinded by your love for Steven Seigal. The Laffey fought off hordes of Kamikazes and lived to tell the tale. She will make a great premium. Germany 1) Proposed M class light cruisers in plan Z. (Yeah, they didn't build much). IJN 1) Shigure. WG, read up on this one, it participated in almost every major engagement. Slap it with a bag of gimmicks and call it a day. 2) Akagi. We know you have the model, so make it happen! 3) Maya. This is Takao class ship, but, toward the end of the war, had one of it's 8 inch turrets removed and replaced with AA. Give the Atago class some AA love, renamed it Maya, and call it a day. 4) Ise. A hybrid CV and BB? Nothing can possibly go wrong. 5) Yamashiro. Fuso class BB that looked a little different. Give it a gimmick and Fuso enthusiast will sing your praise for forever. RN 1) Prince of Wales. Sure, we have two KGVs classes roaming the waves. But the POW, with the upcoming Ark Royal, will allow us to live our Bismarck fantasies. 2) Dido. RN's version of the Atlanta. 3) Country Class Heavy Cruisers. Three smoke stacks of pure love. Italian Just focus on the ship lines, please. Russia Stalin drew some ships when he was in grade school.

    Alaska opinions

    I'll probably wait for the reviews before I purchase the Alaska. 1 Million FXP seems steep for any ship, so I hope it offers a unique game experience.

    So what BB line do you think is the best

    I voted for the French. Tiers 7,8,9, and 10 are all very competitive for the French. I would have given the USN a node, but the slow speeds of the USN BB ships from tier 4 to 7 is a detriment for inexperienced players. I like the IJN and feel all their ships are solid beyond tier 5 (I haven't played the Izumo since she was buffed). The German line needs some love. I love tier 7 and 8, but 9 and 10 just does not feel as competitive as other lines.

    8.0 Observation - Pace of Game Changed

    I also noticed how the pace of the game has changed since 8.0. Unless WG makes some changes, I believe this pace will be the new normal. Concealment and positioning are going to mean less at the start of the game. I also fell ships that specialized in map flanking (E.g., Roma) are going to be obsolete in most games. Tonight, I am going to respec most of my IJN and USN BBs to AA. It's a shame because I preferred stealth builds for my BBs.
  8. Well, it's good the AA will be tweaked before CV are reworked. I'm still nervous and may take a break from the game while the bugs are worked out.

    T8 is still screwed

    What was the server population at the time you entered the game with your Atago?

    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).
