    1 weird trick for ranked sprint!

    First time I've ever ranked out... 3 games in a Bismarck and 23 games in Benson. 18 victories, 8 defeats. So that's a 69% win rate. Normally I just play until it's no fun, but I just kept winning games and it became pretty easy. I really enjoy Benson... to be good with it you have to be aggressive. Keep enemy spotted, pinned down with torps and take out enemy DD along with capping.

    not enough time to complete objectives

    In recent months I've found the missions to be near impossible to figure out. This stuff with these in game currencies... I played a bunch of games, earned some... couldn't figure out how I was earning them or where they came from, so I just stopped caring. There used to be these clear instructions, and you'd see the progression. But these recent things just make no sense. I used to spend a lot of time trying to complete objectives, but it has gotten hard and confusing and there's just no point. So really it's caused me to play less than I did before.

    Lets talk about possible fixes

    I played the CV for a bit at tier 6 in Coop... I was never very good with CV's but I do find the new design is more fun. But the amount of damage planes can do has to be nerfed... Or the AA damage has to be greatly increased. I played a match where I had my fully AA spec'ed Missouri steaming alongside a North Carolina about 2km away... We kept getting hit by a Midway over and over... must have been 10-15 plane squadrons. By the time both of us died, I had shot down only 9 planes, and he had shot down 6. Our AA was totally ineffective, and the Midway was able to make three attack runs on us per squadron. That never would have happened in the only meta.

    Premium Ship Review: Ishizuchi (2.0)

    This is the only premium ship I've purchased, and honestly pretty much convinced me it's not worth giving Wargaming money for ships. That being said, I've played her about 160 battles more than any other battleship... I do fairly well with her... my overall average is about 40k damage, but in the past 60 days it's more like 50k and since the patch I'm doing more like 55k. I run my 14 pt Amagi captain on her... She's actually a lot of fun, but she plays a support role. I usually get in behind a group of Myogi or Wyoming and use them to draw fire until I'm in range. Then I unload. Once in range, and as long as you aren't directed at you can do a lot of damage. She's good at nuking destroyers and cruisers, and she'll even do well against a Wyoming if you are really careful. It can be a frustrating ship, her dispersion is bad... but as LWM noted aim high above waterline and do pen's to the superstructure. I usually use HE until I'm within 10km and then start switching it out. She does a lot better heavily angled, so either bow or stern pointed at the enemy. This latest patch seems to have improved her constantly losing engines or steering. The increased fire rate is most appreciated. But occasionally she does really nice... tonight I one shotted a Karlsruhe at about 8km with AP who had turned broadside. I always run premium Damage Control and Repair Party.... you need it. At lower tiers you're constantly on fire or being torped and flooding does more damage than the torps usually. She's not a great ship, but she can be a lot of fun. She's my go to ship when I'm having a bad day playing other ships as I never have a bad time with her at low tiers.

    Premium Ship Review - IJN Ishizuchi

    The Ishikuchi is the only premium ship I've purchased. It's a ship you have to just accept for what it is and then it's a good credit earner. The struggle is getting in close enough. I have the basic and advanced fire training... so her secondaries are pretty powerful once you're in 3-4km. However, to rely upon the secondaries, it means you have to be firing HE. So I pretty much only fire HE any more, I sink a lot of destroyers because of the secondaries. The Demolition expert also works... similar principle. I seem to be averaging 50-60k damage per match, as long as I live past the first half where I can get in range. On a win with a number of ribbons(I tend to get confederate a lot with this ship) I can earn 150-200k credits. On a loss it's like 75k but since it only costs 10k to repair you're still up.
