    Italian BB...with SAP and Smoke

    I think this is more of a test bed and or proof of concept, than an actual premium ship debut. SAP on battleships is gonna be very difficult to play against, and smoke on battleships would be useless because of their firing penalty.

    New Tier 10 German Battleship?

    When it comes to feature and power creep, I have no doubt that WG will continue to progress down this joyride to hell. But, at the end of the day, I think this addition will be very much welcomed. FDG and GK are both very wanting brawlers tier for tier compared to bismarck, as they are too fat, too clumsy, and have horrible gun traverse angles when on an offensive. The introduction of a sleeker, swifter, and overall more comfortable German battleship is very much needed, and will be very very welcomed. I wouldn't mind forking over substantial amount of steel for a tier X battleship that can actually brawl for a change.

    The London is now in my port

    Congratulations to you sir. Good luck with this illusive heavy puncher!

    Pro tip about IJN CAs

    Some seems to be disapproving OP's tips on the basis of either his stats or his ship record. I'll provide some vindication. The tips that OP gave, while hardly "pro", are very necessary, not just to IJN cruisers, but to most cruisers in the game. But allow me to add a few more. Don't blindly take the rudder mod. If your rudder shift time stat is 8 seconds and below, it is enough. How quickly you shift your rudder beyond such point makes very little difference. Taking the engine room mod allows you to juke enemy shells by cutting down or speeding up your throttle and tightening or loosening your turn radius and pattern, usually far more efficient than turning alone. Do not allow yourself to come under crossfires. Even the most experienced players would have difficulty avoiding damage from multiple vectors. In this current CV meta, your chance of disengagement depends on terrain and positioning, instead of your concealment stat that will allow you to vanish into thin air. Put the enemies on one side of you. Be ahead of the development of battle. Pay constant attention to your mini map and the conditions of your teammates, you have plenty of time between reloads to do so anyway. If your flank is winning, be the first to flank the enemies and take them down before they can kite and disengage. If the kiters have moved too far, be the first to quit the chase and collapse on the other flank to win the game. If your flank lost, be the first to flee and regroup with your teammates.

    Russian Dreamboats

    The stats of these ships are pretty ludicrous, hopefully changes will be made. Perhaps WG is trying to draw interest to the game in the Russian servers, in which case I believe introducing historical vessels like the Pre-Dread Borodino, and protected cruisers would be more viable and effective. But, the ships themselves are very well modeled, and I do appreciate their logic in fixing the awkward jump between Dimitri Donskoi. I would love to give Alexander Nevsky a try when she comes out, even if nerfed from its current status.

    Arpeggio of Blue Steel 2

    I wonder if they will finally give Yamato or Musashi their ARP skins... There are also a lot of other notable characters in ARP Manga, I wonder if they will make their debut in anime, and therefore, introduce new ARP ships/skins in WoWs. Overall, these collabs are always a surprise to be sure, but a welcomed one.

    Italian Premium ships to come?

    I would say go for Bourgogne. I can't see that ship being phased out of the current meta anytime soon.

    Tier 8 operation

    ^ Operation Cherry Blossom was available for all tier 8 cruisers of allied factions, while operation Hermes allows tier 8 french battleships. But I agree, perhaps WG should consider putting in more tier 8 operations, I can see a lot of potential plot candidates, such as 1. The hunt for bismarck, in which players can play as tier 8 Axis cruisers and destroyers to escort bismarck through waves and waves of royal navy interceptors. 2. The battle of Layte Gulf, in which players in tier 8 axis/allied vessels participate in this grand battle what do you all think?

    Returning Player: CV"s still ruining this game

    :/ What can I say, if you are the kind that just cannot learn to read the mini map and not pay attention to which flank the CV is focusing on, and insist in sailing alone on a detour... It's like dancing naked in a cage of vipers, and getting attacked by the CVs is still just a mild tease compared to something like an unspotted Yamato salvo from halfway across the map. CVs are controlled by players too, and the best analogy I came up with them is the gang goons in the back alley of 7-11. Usually they can only try and pick a pocket or two from the edge of the crowd, but if someone just had to take a shortcut, alone, through some dark shady corners in the same block, they are really just asking for it. Don't take risky flanking routes when you know you don't have sufficient AA and the CV is focusing on this area of the map.

    Fate of the PR post event?

    from what I've heard from the official sources, it seems that you won't be able to finish your Puerto Rico free... However, your progress doesn't mean nothing, it will be saved, and the rest can be finished with doubloons. I know, WG is a business not a charity, but I'm sure it would be cheaper than buying her outright with no progress what so ever.

    And people say the PR is weak...

    It is a tier X ship with solid armor and underwater citadel, of course she will do just fine. WoWs' player base proved time and time again being able to survive is more important than having great artillery, since smolensk have around 50% WR lmbo. Perhaps what we are all saying is she's not gonna be as much as a meta changer like the Stalingrad or the Kremlin, the ship is just not THAT good. Oh well, congrats on getting her, I hope you got what you wished for out of her.

    I didn't know that this was possible

    I guess you got Bismarck'ed eh? My "best record" is losing 3 turrets in my mogami in one bb salvo. Had to bow tank an Iowa or an Missouri, he aimed high, and knocked out my A, B, and Y turret, leaving only the C and X turret on the higher elevation intact. Rip.
