  1. The Atlanta is OP

    The Atlanta is by far my favorite ship to play right now. IFHE and the proper captain build can wreak unholy destruction on the enemy. It's all about getting into the right position. More often than not, I can set up shop at a strategic point and rain down the fire without counterfire risks. Sometimes, it comes down to me watching how far away certain enemy ships are to stealth fire over terrain at other targets. You have to keep your eyes on a swivel and have good situational awareness. If the enemy pushes correctly though, the Atlanta's weaknesses come to bear very quickly.
  2. Should a destroyer ever use AP?

    Oh yeah, definitely. If you run up against a broadside BB at close range, aim for the bow and stern. Can get some pretty good salvos in.
  3. The stuttering definitely made the game almost unplayable tonight. It's been an issue off and on since the last patch. Quite annoying and really makes knife-fighting in a DD impossible.
  4. What did this guy do...

    In reponse to OP: maybe this guy is his grand kid?
  5. I walked away with 5 something Emdens last year, but I didn't feel robbed since I really needed those captains. I think the best part of these crates, at least for me, is that I never felt like I lost when I opened one. The return on investment was always decent and I do hope the same holds true this year. I was deliberately holding back on buying some stuff with the hopes this event would roll around again. Not sure how much $$ I'll be willing to part with. I'll probably wait and see what the initial batch of crates yields for others.
  6. Ever have one of those days>>>

    Last night, as indicated by my signature. Had to put the game down because I was raging pretty hard. Just could not get any breaks. You just have those days once in a while.
  7. Premium Ship Review: USS Kidd

    I've definitely grown to love her. The way she can dominate the sky above a cap is simply the best. If you run a div with a carrier, the coordination between the two ships can really make life hell for the enemy CV.
  8. Novel ways to die in battle

    I can't remember which ship I was driving, but a commotion started up outside the house that was concerning enough for me to leave my computer. Turns out the neighbors were getting a no-knock raid from the police for a warrant or something of the other. Came back to computer and I was dead. The police show up at the neighbor's quite often.
  9. I've been having buyer's remorse with the MK for some time now. I can't get the ship to work for me. I suppose it's not my play style. I'll probably sell the MK but keep my Belfast.
  10. Probably the best "wth?" moment was me engaging a battleship at about 7 km with secondaries and getting a secondary hit detonation on a DD that was not even spotted next to said battleship.
  11. Considering how much rage this guy projected in the chat for the one game I had with him, I'm surprised he can produce any coherent YouTube material.
  12. Your Best and Your Worst Purchase

    Best: Sims. That ship has been a surprise winner for me. Worst: Kutuzov. Not sure what it is about this ship. I know it's good, but I can never make it work for me.
  13. Sky Cancer Weekend

    I was definitely fuming a lot this weekend at the CV play on my team. Most of these were Tier XIII-X matches, and I'd say about 90% of the time I had CV in the MM, we ended up with the short end of the stick. There were multiple games where the enemy Hakuryu had free rein to nuke my team to death because my idiot CV wandered into a DD or just did his best airfield impression until the enemy found him. When a Tier X CV wants you dead, and he's even remotely decent at the role, you're dead without friendly air cover. It sucks, because our ships were usually doing better than the enemy team, but the CV derpiness just skewed the match in the other direction. It definitely made a lot of the games no fun at all, when I had to constantly deal with CV harassment and perma-spotting in my DD and no friendly air cover. In hindsight, I should've played more AA cruisers to lessen the heartburn. I really wish they'd hurry up with that rebalance that is nothing more than a myth at this point.
  14. My scope of RN BB play is just two battles in the Orion, since my div wanted to go low tier and I had this free BB just sitting there in port. The first game was a whopping 165k damage match in a Tier III-IV MM. I was amazed at how punishing the HE was to cruisers and BBs the like. I deleted two with broadside HE salvos from full health with multiple citadels. It was disgusting and the ship felt so broken. But damn was it a lot of fun. I feel a nerf coming soon.
  15. Last time you got laughed at

    Tier X match playing in my Akizuki. Suddenly full health Khab at 6km charging right at me. I took my lumps with a feels-bad-man sigh.
