    Conquerors Worth

    Is Conqueror worth getting if I already have Yamato, Montana, Kremlin, Grober Kurfurst, Republique and Thunderer? Minus the super heal is there anything that Conqueror can do better than any other TX BB?
  2. Out of pure curiosity is Missouri still the credit earning monster she was back then or has the baton been passed to one of the newer T9/T10 ships?

    European DDs Role In The Game

    But that's what Japanese DDs are for. My point is what does this line offer better than another nation?
  4. So far I see no advantage that these new DDs possess that makes them worth playing. They have extremely fast torpedos but are hampered by having the lowest damage potential of their respective tier. Their guns reload extremely fast starting at T7 but have very little range with T9 Ostergotland not even reaching 11km without the use of captain skills or modules. Concealment values are nothing special, being very similar to USA DDs. They have no smoke so anytime they fire their guns they will be spotted and they don't have the speed to retreat if things go sideways. They have a repair party but with such a low HP pool to begin with a single well aimed shot can send you back to port with little to show for. They have access to DFAA but once planes see you so will the rest of the enemy. I honestly can't see anyone choosing these ships instead of another branch. The only thing going for them is their looks in my personal opinion. Maybe once subs are introduced they'll become more viable?

    Who will buy Smaland?

    It would if Smaland had smoke like Friesland.

    Drake is better than Goliath IMHO

    There's that too. Goliath looks like they shrank the hull but left the superstructure alone.

    Coal Ship Conundrum - 9.1 - advice/thoughts?

    Get Smolensk if you want a truly overpowered ship. I prefer Thunderer since she's an awesome sniper BB but that's just me.

    Drake and Goliath?

    They're both good ships if you know how to play them. Drake is better IMO but judging what people say when I explain why I suggest you keep working your way up and decide for yourself. AP is decent and can actually put the hurt on DDs. HE is OK at best.
  9. Goliath has 3 more barrels, 0.9km more gun range, 0.3km bigger gun range to detectability window, 11800 more health and more AA. What she sacrifices to get this is 0.5s longer reload and the inability to increase her gun range and decrease her reload. Drake can take MBRB3 and drop her reload down to 15.8s and increase her firing range temporarily to 18.9km with her spotter plane. Goliath doesn't get planes at all. These are heavy cruisers in the sense of gun caliber only. They will happily eat citadel's just like light UK cruisers (thought to a slightly lesser degree). Drake and Goliath share the same torps and gun damage numbers. To sum things up Drake is to Goliath what Alsace is to Republique. Now don't get me wrong I love Republique but there's no denying Alsace is the better of the 2.

    Yoshino vs Puerto Rico

    You must have had your shells go under water first. This is why I said 98% and not 100%

    Yoshino vs Puerto Rico

    Until you take PR out you won't know what I'm talking about. Alaska can't sail broadside and have a 98% chance of not having her citadel hit. PR can thanks to her citadel being fully submerged.

    Yoshino vs Puerto Rico

    Alaska had absolutely nothing on Puerto Rico. She can't brawl with BBs and come out the victor. Only way to get a citadel hit on PR is through the bow. Alaska is slower by 0.5 knots. PR has 25% more firepower for 10% slower rate of fire. If you read LWM review of Stalingrad she says that said ship is an improvement over Moskva in every regard. Puerto Rico is in the exact same situation over Alaska. I can't say for sure if she's worth the full grind but I finished her with 15k doubloons (got a lot from all the Santa crates) and she's well worth it.

    Booster Refund ends 12/26

    With her camo and no other xp/credit booster applied she does make a decent amount. If you're on track to aquirring her I'd keep it that way. She is a serious threat and very fun. I'd say she's about as close to Missouri as you can get in terms of earning potential.

    Coal ships: Georgia vs Thunderer

    Georgia is a close range ship where as Thunderer does much better at a distance. Thunderer just doesn't have the armor nor secondaries to fill in the time between each main battery shot. Georgia does.

    Booster Refund ends 12/26

    She is not a true premium. She doesn't show up if you hide all non premium ships. She's is considered an elite ship like Alaska, Georgia, Thunderer, ect.
