    Grinding Russian Cruisers (help)

    Provided you use flags and manage to have decent games you have more than enough time to get the Moskva. Get ready to be bored though. Playing those ships is like watching paint dry.

    Thank you WG for the t7 radar buff!!

    True enough. It’s funny when they want to skip a stinker in the line and they don’t have the FXP to actually skip the ship.

    They can still make it to tier 10 games regardless but in all honesty this will help them get exposed to dealing with radars even sooner because, let’s be honest, too many DD players opt for the suicide way of playing when radars exist at tier 8 and above. Maybe we’ll start seeing those that want to learn how to play a class of ship instead of derping there way to tier 8.

    Changes with Detonation Lately?!

    I don’t run det flags on a destroyer and I still do fine. Just make your magazines healthier with the proper upgrades and skill point usage and you’ll be mostly fine.
  6. Only at tier 8 and above. Otherwise it’s a nerf to all the tier 7 CLs that desperately need it just to have a chance of surviving in uptiered games while remaining useful. What they’re doing is instead of cutting off what made IFHE so incredibly powerful, they’re dropping a big nuke on it and calling it balanced. It’s not balance. It’s a catastrophe waiting to happen. They need to go back, keep the 30% pen increase, and make the fire chance drop by 50%. This is how IFHE was supposed to be in the first place but naturally they screwed it up so instead of fixing it they’re nuking it.

    Why do players do this?

    Not necessarily. Sometimes you need to temporarily mask your turrets while doing a full turn particularly with slow rotating turrets. However keeping them masked is a mistake. It’s really situational but not a habit to make since turning with cover is a lot more preferable than turning out on the open to begin with.

    This is what WG wants their battles to be?

    They’re too common. In a full day of playing, you’re more than likely to run up a constant 5 game losing streak with all of them ending in a rapid snowball for every win you’re able to get. My new worst streak was a 10 game losing streak. That is just demoralizing.

    DD Commander Skill points question..

    AFT and then IFHE. You play them like Russian gunboats and annoy the entire red team with your constant peppering of your HE. Prioritize cruisers and learn how to dodge. The only concealment you should take is the upgrade for your ship. Also, don’t forget your reload booster when you find yourself in a knife fight against another DD. If you’re not aware, Yuro has massed a video on how to Tashkent which is ironic in that that’s how you play French DDs also.

    What ships are best for what operation ?

    Basically if it’s a cruiser or battleship should work out fine. Destroyers are, well they’re not exactly appreciated unless they’re gunboats and are played by someone who knows what they’re doing.
  11. This is very dangerous for us. Just look at MWO (my favorite reference I know) and tell me how well that has been going for them. The developers will simply stop caring and we have at least ourselves to blame.

    Moskva vs Worcester

    Moskva is the baby Stalingrad. It’s AP is still ridiculous. It’s HE is still ridiculous. Everything about the Moskva is ridiculous and it’s only balancing feature is how boring it is to play a Moskva until someone eats your broadside for dinner which, may I add, should almost be never. Another downside to the Moskva is that it’s not for cheap captains. Other than that, Moskva is the easy tech ship mode of most heavy cruisers. She’s rivaled by Yoshino, Des Moines, Alaska, Stalingrad and Zao for different reasons. If you want a fun ship out of the bag, and you’re that serious to skip a ship, go with the Worcester. I think you’ll get more mileage out of her.
  13. Pretty much everyone has said OP. PvP is where you’ll learn how to play destroyers effectively outside of YouTube and streams. Now there are three fairly forgiving lines you can go down and it’s going to come down to preference. 1. USN 2. IJN torpedo 3. KM (German) All the other lines are not forgiving at all when a mistake is made so I would hold of on those lines until you feel you’ve gotten the general play of destroyers. My personal take is play the USN line. It gets better as you progress all the time and there isn’t any stinkers at any point.

    Balanced gameplay

    Exactly this. When a mistake has been made it should be realized that a mistake has been made. When people start mistaking player error with actual balance issues, that’s when things get messy and the problem that never existed now exists. I’ve seen this sort of cycle time and time again in MWO, WoWs, and some other games I’ve used to play. Every single time when something wasn’t a problem, and the ones who know and understand the mechanics of whatever game comes out and says that’s not an issue, and the devs ignore those that understand the mechanics of the game, that’s when the non issue becomes an issue. Most of these topics that get created about imbalance and balance and what not I will bet you money that they’re complaints not about the game, but why they’re getting a whooping of epic proportions. Some of my arguments are what I have observed and have had experienced and honestly, looking back at those times, I come to understand that there’s simply too much complaining and not enough understanding. Like the CV vs DD balance problem that does exist and I do see it, however not everyone has understood the problem like you and I have. We can argue about it all day, we’re likely to end that particular subject matter with a headache with just about anyone who simply wants CVs gone.
  15. So I can grind out elite experience to quickly retrain my captains I’m grinding out. I only have 19pt captain so every time I get close to a new ship, I hit the tier 10 and play 3-5 battles. Then leave with some of my sanity intact.
