    Moderation about game tactics

    Game tactics that involve betraying your team, apparently, are violation of EULA. @Hapa_Fodder has implied this as well. So, give away CV's location? Not allowed. Give away a coward DD's location? Generally not allowed. I've found it easier to think of your teammates as actually in battle. Would you want to betray them to the enemy?
  2. I've found it's better--at least in WG's eyes--to say ok, X player is an idiot, here's why I reached that conclusion. In your example, a DD saw free damage and realized hey, now I can get easy torp damage. A lot of DD matches are famine because can't get good targets, the enemy team counters your stealth torping too well, or maybe their CV chased you off. Have some empathy, certain players find it fun to farm damage, others play to win. In my experience, it is more productive to present your opinion. Politely. Nobody gives a hoot if you're offended anyway. Plus, let's be real: who enjoys being triggered easily? Likes being upset all the time? We understand losing it because someone didn't play to achieve your goals. But we understand cussing about it makes you look selfish and immature. Nobody has time for that. Farthest I've gone is something," Wow, thanks idiot Yamato, you didn't go to defend our back even though I called for help several times and you were only 11km away. Thanks for wasting my Mosaic camo and XP flags." As long as your upset has a quantifiable reason, it should be fine. WG isn't responsible for players that decide to be rude jerks in chat. Just accept it happened and move on. Take a break if feeling very grumpy.

    HMS Lion: Underwhelming and Perplexing

    Lion is tanky, just designed with HE spam at long ranges and AP for broadside targets. Here's how I made her work: 1) Forget brawling. MB turn too slowly, secondaries aren't worth squat, and your armor is that of a battlecruiser 2) Focus CRs. Your HE is ideal for raw damage; with the good fire chance, even a super-cruiser like Alaska will attempt to disengage quickly. Taking out DDs' support is where the Lion excels; I've found that of all the T9 BBs (haven't played the Russian one), Lion has the best results HE spamming cruisers. 3) Your super heal is about absorbing HE and fire damage. Takes practice, but in general, Lion is great when need to swap out tanks, let a green BB pull back to heal. 4) If someone else is HE spamming a BB, add yours and aim for the superstructure.

    The Hypocrasy of Campers

    Potatoes and campers are pretty useful as meat shields while you abandon the collapsed flank. Did this at times, especially in my DDs, when necessary to survive. Don't misunderstand, I absolutely will risk HP to spot and all, shoot for the win. But I am not spotting for a fat-headed BB that's sniping. If he complains about my not spotting, tough: you have the means to tank damage, so you want my spotting, you get up and draw some fire. Even seen this on Standard battles. My team doesn't do anything about the reds in cap but keep farming ones outside cap, ok, I'm not gonna bother spotting our cap. Loss is your fault. You can't accept that? Tough, facts don't care about your feelings. Habit of mine in all DDs (except Khab) is wait and see if the CRs and BBs move within 5km of the cap. If they don't push that close, I just stealth torp and won't try for cap until my team pushes in. They are not teammates if skeered. In my CRs and BBs, as much as I judge can get in and still have chance to retreat, will support our team's DDs and even say if cap's too hot, get outta there.
  6. Only change needed is the two teams banzai charge each other if have issue facing CVs. That way match is over much quicker. But eh, WG'd have an easier time just banning repeated complaints.
  7. All in your head though. Gonna need to bring some massive WOWS mobs worldwide for the business pitch, not to mention trying to earn their attention in first place given you'll be a sudden "out of nowhere" that will affect their current plans. Not to mention WG ended all the in-game discrimination against CVs since last CB and SSs. Mull that over first.
  8. Not gonna happen. There's the Training Room if you want guarantee of no CVs or SSs. Or you can keep dreaming. WG wins automatically over you because it is their game, their decisions, you haven't control over anything except your account.

    New Maps!

    No new maps. Unless they come with dolphins doing mocks leaps and all over your dead ship
  10. Get 1st place consistently 4 matches in a row, you get to tell a random player to go to gulag. Poor guy gets a 1-minute timeout where he can't go into battle. Ignore spreadsheets a bit, let fun factor be the deal.
  11. Most of the issue is simply from AA not feeling effective enough. Last few matches in my Implacable and Haku, noticed even AA blobs can't stop me if AD to dodge flak, which is the chief reason for losing planes. Why I've mentioned--probably not gonna bother again since WG doesn't read their forums too closely--that reworking AA is straightforward. Add an option for flak only, staggered so it's like 1-4 puffs (depending on # of AA mounts) per second instead of allowing time to dodge, and there, players have something that's better able to fight back against planes. Even unicum CVs need their planes to fly straight during attack runs for accuracy, so aside from DB (debatable?), that should balance it a bit more. Of course, plane regen may need a buff to compensate, but WG better not go sledgehammer if make this change. The continuous damage is kind of a joke since tiny. I've yet to see it actually make noticeable difference.

    How would you "counter play" me?

    Simple, but it takes convincing 10 more people to do same: All fight their way to your approximate location. You don't get as much time to do damage, so that sucks for you. But, this is Randoms. Hardly anyone has that berserk mindset. Playerbase problem, not fault in game design.
  13. More RNG like consumables being knocked out won't fly with WG. Complex doesn't go well with the instant gratification crowd. Agree with making AA repairable, but that means AA mounts' health bars need to be visible. How to persuade WG to trial it? Simpler to have DC restore 2 AA mounts per use, but require a captain skill to do it.
  14. York is a very underestimated mid-tier cruiser. She survives better than Myoko in close quarters and has comparable armor to the NO. Still on her regrind (from reseting KMS cruiser line) and she's a dangerous adversary in cruiser main's hands. Only BBs that can take her on and survive is Gneisenau or Scharnhorst since they can avoid being run down.

    CVs have ruined DDs

    DDs that leave AA on and rush to caps are my favorite targets in my CVs. Play a little patiently and use your smoke wisely. I've found I survived better if wait for support ships to push up. Yes, it gets frustrating, but I'd rather live in my DDs than rush to take a cap while support is staying 10+km away. Not always, but do say in team chat that if want me pushing a cap, you guys gotta move up, and yes I'll smoke you. Doing the above, rarely have rocket planes come after me. Adapting wasn't hard. Oh, and I wouldn't present broadside to US CVs running Tiny Tims. I actually had a torp tube destroyed when did that in my Shima one time. The HVARs, oddly, don't seem able to.
