  1. There's no kind of atmosphere.

    A Perfect Hybrid?

    Best hybrid* silver ships (gold) Tier 6: Icarus (T-61) Tier 7: Gadjah Mada (Leningrad, maybe buffed Sims?) Tier 8: Lightning (Loyang) Tier 9: Fletcher. Tier 10: None since the Yueyang was nerfed, they're all too big. Maybe Gearing? Nah, Fletcher's better with beta manoeuvrability. *Scouting > torp alpha from stealth > pew pew pew at various ranges > gimmicks.

    Hood AP change. Buff or Nerf?

    Just play 20+ games on Operation Aegis in both Warspite and QE if you want to know the difference, lot's of lovely bot cruisers to farm citadels. 0.015s shell fuses suck balls for 15" BL Mk I guns.

    Jutland's third turret.

    3x2 Battle class destroyers were built for Venezuela. Overkill for tier 9 imo.
  5. It's really hard to balance ships a tier lower without making them either OP or one dimensional (see Gremy, Kiev, Clev etc) Ultimately they can carry games due to the advantage a newer design. I know it's fun bashing Acasta but it's got the best overall hardware at tier 5, there's a reason you've got a 75% WR with it. Try playing Minekaze or Mutsuki for comparison. Just wish they'd fix the buggy no.3 turret, it makes the guns feel really weird. Anthony never had overzealous rigging like that! RN DD lines should've always been this... Hax! That's 20 points.
  6. This concept would have cruiser MM given recent updates. I think they should fix KGV/Monarch before churning out another premium RN BB.

    Why on Earth London and not Portsmouth?

    This is the best looking RN port.
  8. Regular HE pen damage is healed the same was as regular AP pen damage. HE spam is more consistent than AP spam if your not constantly getting citadels. This is true for all BBs.

    Give RN DDs Speed Boost

    Probably a mistake, they gave the Mk V secondaries on Emerald XXI shells. It was fixed for Vampire so hopefully they'll do the same for Valk. Then they can give Wakeful proper BL Mk I shells, they're very decent on Jianwai. Shenyang has 27mm pen at 10km, Jianwai has 36mm pen. We don't need a 62lbs shells at tier 4. What tier 7 destroyer (or any destroyer in the MM range) has makes Heida have 'awful DPM output'?

    Give RN DDs Speed Boost

    All the data's on https://wowsft.com/shipStatComparison Gearing HE shell to 11.12km = 11.35s Shima HE shell to 11.37km = 10.21s Lightning HE shell to 11.1km = 9.15s They're good, all we need now is a 360 X turret with firing arcs from GM and you'd have the perfect tier 8 DD. 8km torpedoes are well justified for the firepower, it sticks out like a sore thumb on the line. Valkyrie and Wakeful A-hull use 35/38lbs shells designed for the modern XXI gun (Black Swan etc) They're significantly better than Vampire's (correct) 31lbs shells for the Mk V gun. Valk is crazy OP. Maybe they gave Wakeful B-hull 62lbs shells to make the transition from the 'modern' 4" guns less painful? They can citadel most tier 4 cruisers at 10km+ right? Hahaha, the whole line is a complete mess. I don't understand how they've done it considering most of the assets well balanced in the game already.

    Give RN DDs Speed Boost

    Hey, I use those 61 knot 8km torpedoes for Hsienyang! They're better than the 55 knot 9.2km torps and quad laucnhers have a reasonable reload. Lightning shell arcs are similar to IJN 127mm guns (a bit better beyond 10km) and the AP is God like. 125mm pen at 5km is more than Kiev and 70mm at 10km is way more than the usual 45-49mm for US/IJN/RN destroyers. Add the 9% fire chance and she's competing to be the best tier 8 DD by some margin. Oh they've given Wakeful the 62lbs shells too, how messed up is that!
  12. Is this the Battleship that heals 3 times quicker than Conqueror? Hmm I wonder why it's doing so well....
  13. creamgravy

    Baked in IF HE on 114mm and lower?

    Don't forget those 114mm guns fire a 25kg shell with more bursting charge than Gearing (which also fires a 25kg shell) Shima fires a 23kg shell and Akizuki fires a 13kg shell for comparison. It's just on the wrong side of the calculation and should certainly have the same pen as other standard destroyer rounds.

    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.

    Premium Ship Review - IJN Ishizuchi

    Thanks for the awesome reply! It's defiantly next on my list The 12" guns and mkVI AP shells are really tier 2-3, so they don't have great penetration and a South Carolina has 305mm belt armour in places... (Greenboy AP shells would've been a perfect buff for fighting battleships) Although it sounds like HE more than makes up for the average AP Most of the citadel is underwater, at 3km the shells will pass overhead if aimed just above the waterline. (Although Ishizuchi has some citadel sticking up between the middle and rear gun turret)
