    What makes Colorado T7 worthy?

    Reality is most certainly disappointing in some regards. She also would like to apologize, having to go through me, because she completely forgot the password to her account, else she would have been replying herself. I would tell you my experiences with Amagi, but I have a bias, and 100% suck at BB, meaning my experiences with that particular ship is completely worthless. My cousin has so far only played the USN BB line, so she can't provide anything herself, except for how she felt playing each USN BB tech tree line, up to Iowa (she does not have Montana yet). So her experience is limited.

    Honestly, I don't know why the phrase is used, that's just what my cousin said to tell you. She will also accept your proposal if, and only if, you look like the person in your profile picture, or close enough to him. But yeah, not everyone can make every ship work. She admits that she actually hated Colorado, she felt like it took more effort to make her work, than New Mex did, but she does work when played properly. Just to give an idea of the difference between her abilities with the two ships: She's able to snipe with the New Mex, despite the Shotgun accuracy, while with Colorado, she can barely hit anything at extreme range.

    I think it's gone up 100 battles since his last rounds of complaints. Don't quote me on that, I have no evidence for it. My cousin wishes for you to know: Bite your tongue. That's all she is willing to tell me.

    You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.... I am not sorry, I had to go there.

    It's also funny, that he is now claiming other people's opinions about him doesn't matter, in which it obviously does, because he is trying so hard to get people to believe he wasn't being ignorant... All you have to do is admit ignorance, but instead you're trying to hide your ignorance. If you truly care about becoming a better person: it is never wise to hide your ignorance. When you are ignorant, admit it. No one will ever look down on you for that. It takes a lot of effort to admit fault. It takes a lot of effort to also hide fault. You're doing a piss poor job of hiding your ignorance, and you are refusing to admit that you were. Intsead you're placating the idea that you knew all meanings of the word... if you did: What's the problem? If you truly knew the other meanings of the word Pasty, you wouldn't have created this topic in the first place. Stop doubling down, on your stupidity.

    This is funny. The OP shows ignorance. Then tries to backtrack by claiming "I know of multiple meanings" which begs the question "then what is the problem?" Then he doubles down, then later, triples down, to try and act as if he wasn't ignorant of the other meaning of the word "pasty."

    Make DD play great again

    There are consumables that would quickly be abused. Smoke and Radar for example, and with the power of IJN's 100mms with IFHE, that would create a very powerful ship in Harugumo. Leaving the consumable count as is, but able to select what consumables you want: Radar Repair Party Smoke/ Main battery Reload Booster That is way too OP, and would make the IJN Gunboats the king of the ocean. If you allow 4 consumables, and you said we can choose any consumable in the game: Main Battery Reload will get added very quickly. Then again, with how radar heavy every game is going to be, because every DD would mount radar, Smoke might not get used. Instead Main Battery Reload Booster, fire your shells faster. Imagine being able to mount smoke and MBRB, on a Harugumo at the same time: Radar Repair Party Smoke Main Battery Reload Booster Base 3 second reload. Drops instantly to 1.5 seconds with the MBRB. Calculate in the Commander skills, which drops the reload to 2.7, you then have 1.35 second reload. 44 rounds a minute from a single gun, multiply that by 10, and you have yourself 440 rounds a minute. HE rounds capable of penetrating 32mm armor. The DPS of the ship will make it over powered. And the Repair Party improves the survivability. If you go a 5th slot, Hydro would be added, making it easier to dodge torpedoes. Just 3 Consumables of our choice, made Harugumo the most OP ship in the entire game. These three consumables would be the most used on all Gunboat DDs. Shimakaze would also be heavily utilized: Torpedo Reload boost - imagine being able to launch 15 torpedoes, and then another 15 torpedoes 5-10 seconds after the first set. Her stealth at tier 10 is already good, so she literally needs nothing else. Radar - Her stealth may be good, but now so too is her spotting capabilities. She can now spot with her own radar, and then launch 30 torpedoes in rapid succession on top of all that. Repair party - It would be stupid not to take repair party when you can. Now Shimakaze can survive better, on top of her great stealth, and now torpedo and spotting capabilities. If a 4th consumable is allowed, Smoke would likely be taken. That or MBRB, to improve her guns. This idea quickly debalances the game, and makes balancing 100% impossible. Though it was fun to imagine what would happen if this became a thing, I seriously hope this was a joke idea, and you weren't being serious about it.
  10. Akizuki Class Ship, Suzutsuki sounds like a good fit. She participated in Operation Ten-go. She was badly damaged by an air-dropped torpedo. Said torpedo removed her entire bow. She survived Operation Ten-Go, by steaming in reverse, all the way back to port. Some of the survivors from the ships that were sunk, were also picked up by Suzutsuki as well. Niizuki, is another Akizuki Class ship that could be added as a premium. She detected enemy ships with her radar, and with 2 other ships, launched a salvo of torpedoes. Some torpedoes struck the destroyer USS Strong, and sunk her. It is believed to be the longest-Range successful torpedo strike in history, at a range of 11 nautical miles, or 20 kilometers.

    Just becuse you can doesnt mean it right

    3 hara? There isn't a single ship in this game currently, that has "hara" in its name, so I honestly have no idea what you're talking about... ... ... I am kidding with that. I know you mean harugumo, but I honestly don't know how you get Hara, from Haru...

    New Mexico's accuracy, is it a joke?

    The accuracy of NM's guns has always been described as a shotgun, so most certainly not a ship you want to be attempting to snipe with. USN battleships have always been more mid-range BBs in this game anyway, and NM is great at mid-range. It must be said, that even with shotgun accuracy, some people are still able to snipe ships out of existence... my cousin happens to be one of those people capable of long-range sniping with this shotgun-ship.

    I am struggling on the IJN DDs, should I free xp to the Akizuki?

    Use your concealment to your advantage, even against the CV. Stick near the heavier armed ships, and utilize not only your AA, but their AA as well. This is certainly harder to do at tiers 4 and 5, I fully understand that. Do not stray too far from your support, but remain far enough forward to continue scouting. When you see aircraft coming your way, turn tail and run back to your support ships. ALWAYS Keep you AA off. Your AA is useless. Akizuki is the easiest of the IJN DDs to stick with the support ships, with her slow 33 knot speed. Akizuki, Kitakaze, and Harugumo, are the best AA DDs of the IJN, however, they are still lackluster compared to the USN DDs. Their short range AA batteries Suck. These three ships you can ignore the "always keep AA Off" but they are not as effective as the stats claim them to be. You might shoot down 1 or 2. But it is best to only turn them on, when you are in smoke, or when you are adding your AA to that of other ships. It should be noted: Akizuki only has long range, and short range AA. It does not have medium range AA. This severely hurts her AA output. Kitakaze and Harugumo is better in this regard, having some medium Range AA, making them better than Akizuki, but still not as powerful as USN DDs. USN DDs have higher continuous damage of their AA guns than these ships do. Which is why I am baffled by the fact that IJN DDs have a higher AA Stat, when it should be USN DDs having the higher AA Stats. Kitakaze is the best of the 3 100mm carrying tech tree ships, because her turning capabilities, and speed are superior. Harugumo, is the best DPS machine. Keep them within AA range of other ships. turn back when you see enemy aircraft coming. merge your AA with that of others, or only use AA while under cover of smoke.

    Naval Ops Warship Gunner, Commander, and WSG2 Discussion

    I am unable to. Need something that can transfer from PS2 Memory card to USB Flash drive, as well as the Fat PS2, not the Slim PS2. I only have the slim PS2, so even if I did have something like Codebreaker, I still wouldn't be able to transfer the save file.
