  1. Without at least a 10-point captain, you are at a severe disadvantage. Your really want Concealment Expert, and you need to run with a camo that has the 3-percent concealment buff. That gets your concealment down to 5.4 km. Every tenth of a km concealment makes a difference, so don't scrimp on using camo. It can be hard to hit cruisers (or obviously destroyers) with your torpedoes, but you can do quite well against battleships with Mutsuki's torpedoes. (I'm not saying you should only fire your torps at battleships; however, battleships will usually be your first target choice since they are much easier to hit.)
  2. What is the best Tier 4 Destroyer?

    So true. I have never seen a ship nerfed so hard, in so many ways. I loved that ship. I'm sure my WTR went down post-nerf. Now, I won't even sail her.
  3. Player rating

    Saying karma doesn't matter is like saying your vote doesn't matter in elections. Unfortunately, many (most?) players have adopted this karma-doesn't-matter attitude. Thus, the idiots who give negative karma because they are mad that you sunk them or because you have a premium ship and they don't are having a greater impact on karma than they should. Saying karma doesn't matter is like saying having a good reputation doesn't matter. Unfortunately, if the vast majority don't participate in giving out karma where it's due, then yes karma becomes meaningless. My karma used to trend upwards. However, lately it seems to randomly move up or down if I play well and not move at all when I don't. The system could work if the masses would participate in the system.
  4. You don't get the message that you have been reported for single reports. However, I'm pretty certain you do take a karma hit for one. People dismiss the karma system, but I think it's a fair indicator of your reputation in the game. I agree with the OP that it's pathetic when someone reports you because you got the best of them. The system can work if enough people will actively compliment good play because the good people in this game far outnumber the crybabies.
  5. Fun Driving "BAD" ships

    Mutsuki. I seem to do well in this ship, especially if I can actually get a (somewhat rare) top-tier battle. The Atlanta is by far my most played ship; however, I don't think of it as a bad ship. I also like the Yubari.
  6. I believe it's 1 to 1 for compliments and reports. However, you only get notified of a report if there are more than two. I believe I've read the latter point. I also once lost 7 karma (before we had 10), and I didn't do anything except sink some cruiser who had given me a nice broadside. (I didn't say anything in chat.) So, I assume the sore loser used all his 7 reports on me. That was also the only time I remember being notified that I had been reported even though I've lost one karma at a time many times.
  7. C hull?

    In the past, I have played mostly B hull, trying C hull from time to time. I won't disagree that B hull is probably the better choice. However, I am now a convert to the C hull. I've been seeing more carriers lately, and having DF is so cool when a CV captain comes after you with their planes. It's a matter of play style; I love ships that are effective against planes.
  8. Steven Seagal - Best Fit?

    He works well in my Pensacola. I've thought of switching him to my Cleveland, but the expert loader is really useful keeping him where he's at.
  9. Darn. I misinterpreted the discount as well. Thanks for explaining.
  10. Since receiving her radar buff (quite awhile ago), I think she is fine. However, I would love to see her get preferential MM treatment that keeps her out of tier 9 battles!
  11. If you are looking for planes and have a 7.2 km range, you can usually shoot down a good number. The battles where the CV captain is able to completely avoid me is the exception.
  12. buy or not the texas?

    I would buy it myself if it wasn't tier 5. The only tier 5 ship I'll play regularly is the destroyer Mutsuki since she can do okay even when uptiered. I'm not good enough in battleships to fight most of my battles as the lowest tier.
  13. Captain Skills on IJN DDs

    I like Basic Firing Training for T3. AA is pretty good for some mid-tier IJN destroyers, and this skill make it even better. I'm not afraid to use my guns when it makes sense to do so, so the gun buff is also nice. However, I do use premium consumables--especially smoke on any destroyer.
  14. Supercontainer report!

    I was going to post something to this effect.
  15. Griefers in Ranked

    While this is an extreme case, it's also too typical. I have had horrible battles where nobody says a word to me. It's usually a battle that I'm doing well and had good reason to do what I did that I get ridiculed for.
