    Premium Ship Review #111: Jean Bart

    Don't know what to expect with this. But if Jean Bart is available through free XP then I will have 2 questions: -Will Alaska be a free XP ship too? If the previous question is affirmative: -Are they gonna remove any free XP premium that is already on the tech tree? Personally, I think WG will simply let Musashi, Jean Bart, Kronshtadt and Alaska share that option. But then, there's the Arsenal and all that coal people collect daily. So logically some will want for any of the tier 9 ships to be an Arsenal-exclusive offer.

    Premium Ship Review #111: Jean Bart

    I don't know if that guy (@TwinBaka if I remember correctly) can read between lines or what. What LWM said was sarcastically "let's suppose I have played 4 battles in JB". That has been the argument of the guy to take this until now. I was in one of the matches LWM did with Jean Bart almost 2-3 weeks ago. With how rare it is to found Mouse playing in Random Battles, I don't think she has played a mere 4 matches in JB, as she takes the ship, play her in Randoms (don't know if they can play JB or any test ship in Arms Race, @LittleWhiteMouse), get into training rooms to plot dispersion patterns, test AA, armor (citadel vulnerability), and the AP penetration. With that, she gets to know the ship more than any average player (unless that player sink hundreds of battles in that ship alone).

    Tier X guns, tier X HP, and tier VI AA suit. In the presence of a CV, Musashi should be a sitting duck, but almost all BBs are (10 min into a match, almost all AA suites has suffered losses), so that's the reason Musashi is OP. Musashi is a ship in which you just need to shoot and hit to do damage. Normally, at tier 8-10 this is very strong, but being capable of doing the same to tier 7 is absolutely mean. Just for the lulz, tier 7 has almost all of those BBs covered in 25 mm plating and modest protection on their decks and frontal citadel plating. So you can citadel then at absolutely any range (a thing not all BBs are capable in tier 9-10). Jean Bart is a different type of OP. It takes a cruiser aproach to do damage. If you don't have big enough shells, just send a lot of them. You will do damage eventually. And the shells are not small enough to simply ignore. In case you fight German/American CAs (27 mm bow) just having a chance to destroy their turrets each 10 sec should be enough to dissuade them. If not, make them learn. One of my favorite BBs is Roma, which has the same problems. You can mitigate the autobounce mechanic just by timing your shots. In case they keep an agressive profile, just let them get closer, when that close they will always do mistakes.

    Premium Ship Review #111: Jean Bart

    And I am not telling she is not without fault. She is a human after all, and one that is "only" a forummate like you and me. Her having a CC label just menas she creates content benefitial to the game, but the only "benefit" she get is a pre-release access to ships. In all other aspects, she is a player like any one of us. So don't make it like she is a WG employee, anyone can get mad in debates like this one. Sometimes she is rather stubborn to quit a debate, but that has more to do with how the people gives their opinion than anything else. Obviously being attacked like that for disagreeing with Mouse is uncalled for, too.

    Come on Thunder, if there is any ounce of insulting someone in her REVIEW, we would have noticed. Vader is referring to a professional REVIEW, not to the subsequent debate, in which I agree with you, she likes to retaliate to certain type of attacks. So yeah, she does courteous reviews but obviously would not do a courteous debate when people like him give that type of opinion. It is downright disgusting to tell someone to spend MORE TIME IN A GAME!, even more so if you are not paying you taxes with it! And that's what pissed Mouse here.

    New Ship Release Dates?

    Wichita, just in case, is not even in testing yet, together with Vanguard and WV. 6 of the 10 ships currently on the horizon are Battleships. 3 are cruisers and only one is a destroyer

    Mouse, double Vanguard in your post. I know you are a Royal Navy fangirl, but pls don't ignore WV

    Why is WG pushing Tier 10 so hard?

    There is none. And even Stalingrad is less broken than some ships in lower tiers like Kutuzov, Gremyaschy and Imp. Nikolai (casually all of them russian :P). Stalingrad needed a special AP shell to keep up in the DPM department (and the 25+ mm bow on cruisers and BBs at tier 8+), but they overbuffed her AP. I would have gone with 2 of either enhanced DMG and pen, improved autobounce mechanics and reduced fuze timer. She simply can do too much damage without an equivalent effort to do it. PD. Sorry for the double post. Thought I was editing the previous post.

    More like this. There are all type of players: the ones that do not spend a dime in the game despite being better than average, and the ones that spend thousands of cash in the game and have average stats. Or even the occasional newbie that buy tier 8 ships or convert the full value of free XP to get a premium tier 9. Despite all that, usually the ones spending money on premium ships understands what they are buying, so they are not that bad with those ships. At least in my case I would no spend a dime in a (F2P) game I don't understand or play well.

    Why is WG pushing Tier 10 so hard?

    Sorry, that was badly written. I referred to the fact that skilled players buy premium ships because they are pleased with what the game is offering, prompting a purchase and making it viable by playing it. I know that some unskilled players buy premium ships, but that is not the norm. You would not do a real money purchase in a game you do not enjoy or you are skilled at. And the majority of unskilled players (because they are newbies or just don't like to learn) do not purchase premium ships.

    Situation Report Saturday - The Arms Race

    If I remember correctly, WG has 4 or 5 different modes in study, of which the 1st one is Arms Race. There are 3 or 4 other modes in study which they probably want to implement, so probably those will see lower tiers. For now, limiting the MM to tier 9-10 is a great succes from my point of view. Just make it so that XP counts towards Unique Upgrades and Yamamoto/Halsey missions & have achievements like random battles, and it would be good.

    Why is WG pushing Tier 10 so hard?

    Normally, premium ships are adquired by skilled people that knows what they are doing in the game. Despite that, you have to consider 2 more things: a premium ship is more likely to be fully equipped and have a very skilled commander, and they are used to grind credits to sustain the fleet (meaning they are played often). In my case, my Roma has a 65% WR with slightly less than 100 matches. You can say it is OP. But I have 70% WR in my Wyoming too, and both have almost the same avg damage per match. So you would consider Roma OP, Wyoming OP, or just being ships that rewards you when you play well?

    Premium Ship Review #108: T-61

    Well, I am buying her too, and I already have the Z-39 which is enough for me as a German trainer. I have all tier 6 premium DDs except the newest ones ( Monaghan and the yet to release T-61). So yeah, she looks more than interesting enough.

    Premium Ship Review #108: T-61

    T-61 has almost the same price tag as Sims. She will be the most expensive tier 6 DD by a little margin, almost all has the same pricetag (23-24 dollars, by the way, Anshan is the cheapest one).

    Premium Ship Review #108: T-61

    I don't think it is that grave. Sure, T-61 is a very powerful ship (even overpowered) but in a gunfight it is not a foregone conclusion. And torpboats are famous for that "feast & famine" performance. She is not "Gremyaschy-good" in that T-61 suffers when uptiered, but she is too good for tier 6. Will buy her anyways so...
