  1. Notser: HMCS Haida is a Dud

    Torpedo reload is based on a damage curve. WG adjust it slightly for balance. Gearing/Groz reload is slightly nerfed (should be ~127s/~116s) and Shima Type 3 was slightly buffed (should be ~141s) etc. A quintuple launcher firing US Mk 16 torps should have 132s reload, while a quad launcher has a 106s reload. Fletcher was given the reload for quads and it has never been corrected (probably old alpha error like type 92 torps)
  2. Notser: HMCS Haida is a Dud

    I'm not a fan of 'selfish' Perth smoke on a destroyer. DDs are the primary source of spotting, they pop smoke and the entire enemy team usually vanishes. It's horrible when your DD doesn't spot for long periods (see Asashio) Perth has 4 minute spotter planes and takes up a cruiser spot, it's well equipped to use/abuse 2 minute creep smoke. PanAsia DD smoke is a million times better, they should just use that.
  3. No HMCS Haida for Canada Day

    1st test iteration is basically Perth smoke with high damage, low fire chance guns with normal rear turret angles. Pan Asia smoke is miles better so expect big changes. It's going to really tough for any DD to match GM.
  4. No HMCS Haida for Canada Day

    So, why are they testing a 'Commonwealth' Cossack? ST. Balance changes. British destroyer Cossack, tier VII. British destroyer Cossack is coming to a test in her alternate version with changed-up stats of smoke generator, HE shells and torpedoes. In this config she should be able to be ore successful at capturing areas, gunning of the enemy ships and covering allies, allowing them to retreat in the smoke screens. Smoke Generator consumable now has the following stats: 90 s emission, 10 s duration, 240 s cooldown, 2 charges. 160 s cooldown and 3 charge for the premium consumable. HE shell max. damage is increased from 1700 to 1900. Chance of causing fire is decreased fro 8% to 5%. Torpedo range is decreased from 10 km to 8 km. Torpedo detectability range is increased from 1.3 to 1.4 km. Increased firing arcs on 3rd main battery turret. Visibility after firing main guns in smoke screen is reduced by 120 m.
  5. Wait what? A free XP RN BB called Thunderer based on the completely fake Conqueror? Terrible trolling... If anything it'll be that 3x2 Tribal on supertest flying a commonwealth flag.
  6. Abruzzi vs Tanky McTankyFace.

    Aosta. - Min H Dispersion 134 m - Min V Dispersion 474 m Abruzzi. - Min H Dispersion 119 m - Min V Dispersion 288 m
  7. Abruzzi vs Tanky McTankyFace.

    Abruzzi has better dispersion and HE shells. No idea why they decided to screw the AP shell with less Krupp and higher air drag. Looking at navweaps it should be the other way round? Maybe they confused the poor HE shell ballistics with the AP shell?
  8. when buff for the duke of york

    Duke of York has more accurate guns (very low minimum dispersion for 10-11km ranges) and US CA ricochet angles over KGV. It's an accurate AP ambush monster (that's a nicely angled 27mm cruiser you've got there... blap) that most play like a HE spammer.
  9. Thoughts on the HMNZS Gambia?

    1945 Achilles will play very differently to Perth. Great AA but no planes and only 3 turrets (I'd balance it out with normal smoke + IXM torpedoes) It would make a fantastic reward ship for minimal dev time. (WG should really rotate Perth with Sydney in the premium shop too)
  10. Thoughts on the HMNZS Gambia?

    A premium Fiji would sell like hotcakes but I'd prefer these unique NZ rebuilds. 1945 HMNZS Achilles (3 turret Leader with great AA and 2x4 torps, kinda like a beefy HungHe) 1956 HMNZS Royalist. A tier 6 Commonwealth Belfast? (Ok maybe not)
  11. Premium Ship Review: Duke of York

    Just thought I'd add some useful info to the review. Duke of York actually has 60-67.5 degree AP ricochet angles, similar to high tier US cruisers and Hood. That's why the reload is a more balanced than KGV, otherwise it would be a bit broken. It 'up tiers' really well agasint 32mm BBs or cruisers with 27mm thinking they're well angled... Shhhh don't tell anyone.
  12. I think they're comparing it to Nurnburg? La Argentina's armour is actually quite good, much better than Huanghe for example. Surface detection will be around 8.3km with CE. HE shells have a 13.3 lbs bursting charge (2200 + 12% fire chance) vs 8 lbs for Perth/Belfast. DPM will be crazy with a 6s reload, you could easily turn her into a tier 7 Perth (long duration spotter planes + creep smoke) Torps are a Fiume/Whitehead variety, same as the ones found on the Buenos Aires class DD (take your pick for stats)
  13. Tribal was designed to plug a cruiser shortage created by the London treaty. Main roles included detached cruiser duties, attacking other destroyers and scouting. Not massed torpedo attacks agasint enemy fleets. Grom-class was a large destroyer leader design that was still expected to carry out torpedo attacks on fleets and didn't have command and control associated with cruisers or Tribals. J/K/N class was a ground up design to replace interwar fleet destroyers (ending with the I-Class) It's a post treaty fleet destroyer that was originally designed with 4 modern DP guns with excellent forward firing arcs and has little in common with the Tribal. (These were very reliable destroyers btw)
  14. Anything, as long as they don't balance it with bloody gimmicks.
