    Matchmaking - was this a fair match?

    Looks like your carrier got deplaned by the Kitakaze and the enemy carrier, and some by the Baltimore, Flint and a few others. Taking down 73 planes overall. Your team shot down 10? Other than that what happened is hard to determine from this screen. Passive play? Fair? Hard to say with just this to go by.
  3. Ships I like but others dislike/hate: 1) Nurnberg/Konigsberg (especially when I draw a heavy DD game) These 2 kite well, and the AP works well on broadside cruisers. 2) Old Pensacola (57% win rate in this one before they dropped it a tier, now I no longer even play it, so I guess it should be on both lists) 3) St. Louis/Charleston, this has been covered by others 4) Graf Spee, this one I click with for some reason, fun to play. 5) Atlanta, depending on the situation it can fight from behind islands or in open water with the right captain. Ships I dislike that seem popular: 1) Cleveland, this one I played a lot before it moved to tier 8, now ? I haven't even finished upgrading it. I do play it occasionally in coop, not taking it into randoms, not fun when up-tiered to tier 10 battles. 2) Any slow BB (Colorado especially, I've had this one for a year, still in port sitting there, probably should just jump past it and be done with it) 3) British DDs, all of them. I'm not a good DD player, and these aren't fun for me. 4) British Cruisers before the Leander, after that things get better

    Should WG go forward with the CV rework?

    Are they going to be useless with the current balance of AA, or will they be mandatory once they finish balancing AA? That is a problem. If they offer a free respect, and we adjust for the current balance at the time of 1/23, then they continue to re-balance AA for months afterwards, where does that leave us? The next few months will be interesting to say the least. I understand why they are having problems dialing this in, with everything going on in the game during the holiday season, this was a bad time to try to balance AA in the PTS, normally I run at least a few games in the PTS, but not this month, I haven't even downloaded it. I've had too much going on to find time to play in both, and compared to the last few years my game play has dropped off.
  5. Nice catch! Best I've done is a Dunkerque recently. And I about jumped out of my chair for that one.
  6. Let's see, WG rewards people who play the game, which is usually the ones who buy premium stuff, right? The rewards come in the form of free stuff you get just for playing, and people who play more often get more stuff than the occasional players. I know I don't get a lot of stuff, simply because I don't play enough to finish many of the lengthy campaigns/missions. (I'm not complaining because people get more stuff than I do, it's a choice I make, before anyone thinks I am complaining.) I enjoy the reward systems in place now, and wish I had more time available to devote to the game, sadly I have other things I also like doing that require my time. And other things that are required, like work, that take up my time also. I buy stuff, not as much as the OP, but still a lot for how much time I get to spend on the game. I think their reward system is fine, not going to fault the OP for asking for something, I also understand their reason for giving things an incentive to people who have Not been active lately, trying to encourage them to resume their activity. In his example the store owner is already giving something (free WIFI) for their patrons, yet he thinks they should provide more. Not sure but he might be overloading the boat with that example. It's one of those things where this year you add free WIFI, next year a free muffin for whales, next year free coffee for whales. Where does it end? Whales, in my experience are always looking for something more.

    Black ships... No thanks!

    I can see WG wanting to get the most bang for their buck by reusing existing ships for this type of limited event, I also see the collectors side of not wanting an identical ship to one they already have in port. They want something new to collect. I choose the Shinny horse over the Tirp, and Alabama over the Mass. This might give me reason to re-evaluate these ships, I already have the Texas, but haven't picked up Warsprite yet, so might give it a second look also if it were to become available in Black. I usually pick up a ship here and there when the mood strikes.

    Main Battery Monday - Top Shot

    Turenne has about 34%, which surprised me, I guess getting close to the red ship helps. I'm a poor BB player, and my next best ship is about 27-29%, for the Konig, Nassau and Wyoming. All of these except the Wyoming have a nice win rate too, just can't seem to do enough to influence the game in the Wyoming.

    Raptor Rescue woes

    Can be frustrating when the team isn't a team on this one. Had one win out of 3 tries, with my Dallas and a Dunk leading the way for the Raptor. He managed to live, while I didn't, dying to the last 3 Myoko's. Even when leading the carrier you have to watch the mini map and see which way the drunken sailor at the helm is going to turn. Because heading for the extraction point would be too easy. Speaking of which, they seriously need to upgrade the code for the Raptor, it seems to like island beaches, and we lost one where the Raptor kept running into islands, repeatedly. Had to have a BB escort it to keep it on the path, and even then we ran out of time to get the Raptor to the extraction point. The other loss was strange one where we lost 3 ships in the first encounter. That doesn't usually happen. One to torps, one to the BB, and I'm not sure what happened to the third one, didn't see it go boom. But we were seriously handicapped at that point. Would have been better off with bots for teammates. Gave up for the night after that, I will probably try again tonight. After playing a few rounds in the new Operation, I think I'll change from CL to CA or BB for tonight. It used to be a Cleveland Dallas/Nurnberg outing was in order, but now I'm thinking about taking out the Pensacola, Fuso, or QE and seeing how that goes. Maybe even the Graf Spee?

    Ultimate (frontier) Failure

    I thought they were changing the programing of the bots so they don't all shoot the lowest health ship? What happened to shooting the ship that is the highest threat? I was the last cruiser left on our team with half my health left, and all the bots shot over the top of the BBs that were much closer to shoot my cruiser at the end defending the base as I was kiting away from everyone. I think this is my last battle ever in this OP, I have better things to do than be target practice for 6-7 bots.

    Recommended ship for Op Aegis?

    I used to do well in the Nurnberg, haven't tried it lately, but the rate of fire is great. And I still miss the Cleveland. Of the ships you listed, Pepsi, and New Mexico can both do well. Dallas works well like Nurnberg, if the team pushes, otherwise they tend to take damage quickly (as do the other cruiser mentioned above). I tried in the Dunk a couple of days ago, and unfortunately got one of those teams where half the team went south around the first island. Wasn't pretty. But even that team managed 3 stars because of the play of 2 teammates. Other than that, my teams have been pretty good, even when hampered by exploding DDs. They really nailed it by saying if you aren't prepared and don't know what to do DDs have a tough time in Ops. Many time they don't make it past the first encounter with the red ships, they play just like in random and run forward to die. But if you get a good player in a DD, they can be among the top on the leaderboard. Same goes for Carriers.
  12. I haven't really tried to get to tier 8, I'm pretty happy at tier 7 at the moment. The few tier 8 ships I have in port tend to stay there unless I'm playing Cherry Blossom. Then the Cleveland and Baltimore get to come out and play. Unfortunately for the Takao, it isn't eligible so stays in port. It got tired of seeing so many tier 10 matches, and retired. Right now I'm working on finishing the grind to Hipper, Chappy, Edinburgh, North Carolina, Gneisenau, and Helena, but no rush for tier 8 ships. Hoping something will change, but not holding my breath.

    Co-op needs major surgery - but how?

    This may be a case of be careful what you ask for. What I'm getting at is if we ask for the battle to end only when all the ships are sunk (or on time), and if WG keeps on tweaking the bots we may be in a situation where the "smart" bots hide better and better when losing...and there is no way to end the game except for time to run out or find the last bot DD hiding on the map. You know the one who knows where the Green ships are (cause that is already one of their cheats ) and slips around just out of sight, causing no end of frustration. Right now in the game it wouldn't come to this in most matches, maybe in the higher tier matches you might find something like this. I've already seen a red BB bot dis-engage and withdraw towards the edge of the map on occasion. But when they extend the "abilities" of the bots as they seem to be doing over time, this could get tough to handle in the future.

    Can't shoot, guns jammed?

    If you haven't already tried, you might reboot the router/modem and see if that helps. Sometimes it can, depending on the issue. You can also call your cable company, and let them do a check, it might turn up something on their end. Maybe the cable coming into your home. Once upon a time, a tree limb was the culprit, only happened on windy/stormy days when it could tug on the cable coming into the house. Good luck.

    Française Friday - The Best Ship

    Duguay, Emile, and my recently acquired Algerie, which is taking the place of my Pensacola as my tier VII CA of choice.
