    Rockets planes are TOO accurate

    Yet all other ship classes at high tiers have heals... and a bow on yammie blocks and bounces entire salvos between luck and skill... but there is no tanking, angling, healing from, or threading rockets in a shima... not unless the cv captain has a ministroke.

    1k minimum is a solid chunk of a dd with less than 15k hps... there is no zero damage outcome. A full aa dd will kill planes... but not before 2-3 passes have been made. 3-18k damage. Possibly more. Plus spotting, plus fires, plus modules disabled or outright destroyed. And this is fine to me... if and only if cvs are the hard counter to dds... but that has always been the role of cls... so whats the reasoning behind the extra scissors in the room... and why are these scissors able to become paper by hitting the f key and swapping for torp planes? A dd has a far easier time avoiding usn shells at 15k... or any shell from 20k... because they CAN be avoided... whereas rockets will always at least deal 1k.

    10-15% drop in players since update?

    Kurfurst... zerging brawl mode... all secondaries are now bolters... he who stands with me shall be my brother! For the emperor!

    Because cvs can expect to be able to avoid flak. Because bbs can expect to be able to thread torps. Because cas can expect to be able to mitigate bomb drops... none of these is guaranteed... but it means that a good player can utilize their knowledge to full effect and either reduce or eliminate the threat... by changing speed, direction, angle, etc... same goes for incoming dd torps or incoming shells... there are ways of avoiding or mitigating attacks... rockets have none. You will be hit for 1k minimum. Probably quite a bit more. And have your modules wrecked. And possibly even a fire. Im not asking for immunity im asking for counterplay that works.

    Right? Im still hoping for a 12v12 or 8v12 or even 6v12 co op mode... no guaranteed victory... even very little chance at victory... but it gives one so many opportunities to pull a battle of thermopylae / alamo on the high seas while spouting wh40k nonsense its just irresistible...

    BB's need support in a coop????

    Yep. I love me some dd/cl co op, and im guaranteed 1-3 kills... but... i have had 300-400k 6 kill games in bbs in co op... thats never worked out as well in dd/cl. YMMV of course. Co op carry in cl/dd is surely doable but ive only seen it happen consistently with bbs and pre rework cvs.
  7. A bit off topic but any word on the danish tugboat you were trying to pawn off as a premium yet?

    I like having an extra bb on the enemy team to thump on... good times.
  9. Back in the lertbox, shill! Also... we need a lert snark rating system... i.e. this lert comment = 3.5 snarks on the snarkometer... or just 3.5 lerts... if a comment is particularly high on the scale it could set off a red a-lert...

    I get along... but definitely not "fine". My aa fletcher knocked 27 planes out of the sky just a few days ago... he still died via rockets. Do a majority of the rockets miss? Sure. Does a volley ever not do damage? Not that ive ever seen. Oh 27 planes? You deplaned him, np right? Not so much... because he still had 100% of his torp bombers left to finish off the bbs behind my sunk self. I juked, i hid in smoke, i wiggled like nobody else... speed, direction... but there doesnt appear to be rocket counterplay. Even smoke just means drop fighters and switch targets until you guess the location or ally dds spew enough torps into the smoke to force an exit. Or radar gets in range. Either way 180kts brings you back to your primary victim in no time flat... plus the dd is spotted now. This may be fine if cvs are meant to be a hard counter to dds... but the weapons at their disposal counter any ship type... dds are just met with a harder counter than the others. If theyre not meant to hard counter dds but merely have a tool in their utility belt that works reasonably well... why not go back to HE bombs? You couldnt always evade them, but at least you had the potential to. Perhaps the game would be better served with cvs ONLY doing dot/module damage with zero alpha? Or fly well outside historical accuracy and put them in a harrying/escort role where they cause buffs and debuffs... boosting reloads or penalizing accuracy... perhaps even dropping extra consumables or arms race type buffs?

    Whats your best "who replaced :herpaderp: with :hal9000:?!" moment?

    So other than never firing, never using aa, never coming within 3.6k of enemy planes, and finding a way to hide in smoke while under full throttle/decelerating... what exactly was the counter to rocket planes?

    Beats me. Can check when i get home later. Loyang was just an example. Im all for going dark and letting the planes go their own way... but at 180kts with fighter consumable drop planes... they can cover an absurd amount of ocean with eyes... so while its nice in theory its less functional in practice... especially when theyre off the flight deck and spotting you before most of the fleet reaches top speed...

    It was pretty hilarious when random mains flooded co op for missions... watching them pull the t8 meta game and wondering what went wrong... Not a doubt in my mind. Some of my best co op games were mino games. But when smoke fades if there isnt someone else in the crosshairs life gets... dicey for dd/cl in co op... whereas a kurfurst just keeps on keeping on....

    Wow. Words fail me. Shima wearing musashi camo by accident? Or the ship next to you have "shoot the shima ->" painted on its hull? You must have wiggled like a boss.
