    Yashima the new HE monster?

    Remember when these sagely forums predicted that Georgia would be a garbage bote based on her six rifles? Funny how WeeGee made that turn out. Might want to wait and see what all they plan on putting on this new ship first.

    IJN Mutsuki...How?

    Glad you learned from the forums advice and are now enjoying the ship.

    Okay, am I reading the dates for these posts correct, cause if I am, this was started almost a year ago, Nov 20, 2018, then the OP finally replies today? If that's accurate, then the OP sure has been taking their time with this game.
  4. I'm glad you are taking the advice, and realistically the only option to someone as new as you, to grind up the line. There is also one more very important factor in this besides just game experience that factors into this decision, that one other poster almost touched on. By now you must have noticed that your ship captain gains experience points just like your ship. A fully decked out, 19 point captain is VASTLY better than even a ten point captain, and you will find yourself hurting if you don't make sure to grind up your captain as well. Little things like that can make all the difference in this game, so hopefully you can enjoy the play time up to getting your Fletcher!

    Italians are coming!

    To me, that third turret on the Milano looks like six inch guns, not another set of eight. Just like the Yamato, only since the guns are eight inchers, not eighteen it's harder to tell the difference.
  6. While this isn't probably the longest streak, it is the only one I'm certain of, which is my four games in the Novik. After that, had everything unlocked, so never played it again. So it will probably forever sit with a 100% wr.

    Is save a star hurting ranked games ?

    As a DD to save a star you need to solo cap once, or share a cap twice, outright sink one other DD and do about three quarters damage to another (you could do this to other classes, but higher HP makes it harder). And that is just to be in the running really; one BB gets a whole lotta cits or makes a ram on another BB and he keeps his star. I played Gearing several seasons as my only DD, so I know the cold math on this subject. Fascinating aside, the first season they introduced the save a star, was the tier 7 season, and I can remember one battle where it became clear to me that my team was done for. The enemy was rushing a straight covered in smoke, and since I was in the Gnicey, I decide to break formation with my team and charge in there. One of my teammates asks me what I'm doing, and I tell him that I'm saving my star. It worked for me, but sure was cit-ty for my team.

    One big issue WG faces with nerfing CV

    Right. . . and Issm's infamous Shimi escort was not a well known thing. . . or Taichunger's every other post. . . nope no one complained about sky cancer before. . .

    So Long and thanks for all the fish..

    Suicide rush the nearest red then spend the rest of the match criticizing your teammates? I mean, I expect DDs to rush ahead as they got the concealment or speed to handle, but you can't fix bad teams that don't play objectives. . . Carrier or not. Spell check is a cruel mistress that has a mind of her own sometimes. . .

    See, this is the sort of remark that revels the intelligence of the player. I mean, wth were you going to do if you weren't a DD that wanders off on your own and you ran into four or five reds? Hell, if you weren't certain cruisers in the RTS you got cross dropped and died as well! This is that dumb as rocks ship you see YOLOing off into the sunset instead of working with other ships to focus down the reds, regardless if there are carriers or not. If your complaint is that when you wander off and weapons fall from the sky and damage you, maybe a game where you get shot at isn't your speed?

    3 days left for zeep apocalipse.

    No, the plan as announced/suggested, would be for all the odd tier to be even tier (i.e.: Bogue as tier 4) with both lines having a ship added in (Yorktown for US) to bring them to the correct amount

    Premium Ship Review #121: Exeter

    Man, sure is shocking that after WeeGee starts talking about nerfing "over performing" premiums, they then release a premium that sure looks like it is/will be over performing! No one ever saw this coming, amirite?

    Who Says That DDs Can't Do Anything Since 8.0?

    Hmm, well they aren't the only ones. Kept hearing the sky was falling, so took out my Fujin, a DD that relies on stealth, to test that theory. . .

    Mac Client

    I started playing this game nearly three years ago after doing some research on it, in particular if it would run on my Mac. For the first year and a half, the game gave me no real problems, just the occasional freeze/crash, but only a little bit annoying. And if this is how it stayed, I'd shrug my shoulders and tell you it could be worse. But since somewhere in the mid 6.0's this game has become increasingly unstable, to the point of frustration. I wouldn't be angry about this problem if this is how it always was (though, it's debatable if I'd be playing for three years if it had been this bad) but the fact that they keep making the game run worse as they keep "improving" it makes me rage. I had plans to budget a certain amount of money to spend on the game each year, to keep it profitable as it was a good product, but outside of the first year, I've never reached that limit, or not spent any money due to how poor the game runs. Very disappointing in all.

    Garbage boats you like...

    Emerald. Sold her off with about a 60% wr, and three times nearly got a Kraken in her. I found her amazing in battle, and never got the hate on her. The So Car also worked well for me, only tier 3 BB I've played with a positive wr, found she works well if you know not to broadside. And continuing unpopular opinions, I also like the Gearing more than the Fletch, and have a poor Benson sitting in port that was going to get his captain back until I found the Gearing.
