    Unobtainable Armory Camos?

    Considering that these ships (Flint / Black) used to require ranking out to receive them, I see no issue with them requiring ranking out to receive their special camos
  2. I find sometimes the game will hang before the post-battle, maybe 5-15 seconds. Occasionally it would skip right to port. I usually just assume client-side issue and ignore it

    Asking For Help With Positioning In Cruisers

    When trying to stay alive as a cruiser, I usually picture what I would do if I were the Battleship trying to DevStrike me There's nothing wrong with using your range on the likes of HIV, Zao, Hinden, sometimes getting close can mean instant death if you don't have troll armor to save you. No matter what class I'm playing , I'm always checking the minimap to see what kind of information I can get early on, (What ships are where, are there divs?). When playing my cruisers it's all about what can Blapp the crapout of me If i get too close. I always want an escape plan, especially with my cruisers since they're more open. Typically with heavy cruisers I prefer to push on a flank allowing me to go dark and kite out if it gets too hot out there -- or if I have hydro (which i typically always run over defAA) I don't mind pushing in towards a cap if there's sufficient island cover that effectively blocks one of broadsides. In light cruisers (Mino/Worc, or maybe DM depending on how I feel) It's typically push towards the general island cover, and really a matter of don't get greedy. You're spotted? Wanna get that last salvo off? Don't, go dark and hide/run if needed. Never underestimate the power of cutting your engine and turning in/out, (especially HIV). Nothing more frustrating then trying to target a Cruiser at range and consistently having your shells go in front of and behind them since they kept changing speed At the end of the day, an annoying HE spamming Hinden or HIV or Worc, chilling behind islands or at max range, just kiting your team can be the best thing for your team. They're a pain in the [edited], and can easily bait players into lobbing shots at them and wasting time. Sometimes the enemy is also just gonna get a lucky shot, We are bubbles just waiting to pop after all

    Repuplic Token Event Terrible for New Players

    There's still the ark missions portion. I'm pretty sure that the tier requirements for that is >5 so you can still complete those options if you're new to the game. It rewards a T5 Destroyers which is also more suiting if you're new to the game
  5. I've uh, lucked out to say the least. Opened 4 of the normal crates earned through the missions Gotten T5 and T7
  6. This event has been more appealing than the crates since you have an idea of what you're getting. Went for Boise and Atlanta packs. I would never call myself a 'DD main' but I guess WG wants me to play them since I got z-39, Blysk, Haidi, and Leningrad

    New summer sales

    I'd take the gamble if it was a Massachusetts instead of an alabama. For me the 'bama is too similar to the Ncar. However I'd be interested in a 3x T7 for $xx.xx, there's just too many t8's that I don't see to be worth the money

    Henri IV is an absolute Beast!!

    Been running her with full steering gear mods and i've never looked back Gonna miss running IFHE henri with the 50mm pen when the new changes come in, the -50% fire chance isn't even close to worth it

    Worcerster a little OP

    But Worc can use HE I'm a fan of using Mino's torps to save my butt when I get cornered. but that's situational. The HE benefit on Worc is much more noticeable It's 'Absolute' range may be 19km, but in reality, anything past 16-7km you're struggling with USN shell arcs. That's not to say you can't, but it's not as easy to do as compared to some other TX cruisers
  10. Last year's collection awarded Camos for Z-23, Kiev, Charles Martel, & New Orleans. Finishing everything awarded you with one for Monarch. Honestly I loved last year's collection and how completing certain task would unlock you a collection piece. Hoping that there's still something in-store to make this year's more interesting

    Possible Solution to Radar

    I'm fairly certain during a cyclone, radar information is only available to the user

    Most citadels dealt in a match?

    The biggest difference imo, would be that getting citadel'd by a BB hurts a lot more than a Citadel hit from a CL/CA. What might take my Repbulique 3 cits to kill, Could take my Worcester upwards of 10 cits to kill. (Shooting at a cruiser of course)

    Sale Price...good thing

    This. I was doing fine for a little bit but then I invested into Worcester + Republique. There goes 50 million credits. Also lost my premium time from the SantaCrates so T10s hurt if the game doesn't end well. FWIW, even if my credits start going down, I'd just play a T8 premium or Mo' before I spent money on credits.

    Why have different caliber guns?

    Well if you're playing a DM and only shooting HE....

    Clevelan to the Worst

    You would need ~270,000 Free XP to bypass Seattle entirely. Your Cleveland XP can only be used to unlock Seattle.
