    SO I bought the Scharn... Couple of questions...

    Shinyhorse is a fun ship. Along with Tirpitz and Gniesenau , they're probably the only three ships that can comfortably make it out of a 3v1 brawl alive. Set manual secondaries on the cruiser or dd and push into two BBs and let your torps do the work. As long as you don't show your side to them you won't take much damage or get your torps knocked out. Very fun ship to play. I use my 19p GK captain in mine, part secondary (no bft, just aft + mfsec) , part survivability build.

    Shooting through smoke hack?

    I've citadelled more Minotaurs camping in smoke than I have out of it. Just plot from their shell arcs and last known position on the mini map before going undetected. They only typically travel in a straight line forward or backward when moving in their smoke screen. Just aim forward and rear of the last marker position and you'll get easy hits.

    Are german BBs even somewhat viable in a time like this?

    FDG had me so indecisive what gun caliber to even use. I think I changed between the two gun sized a good 10 times. It was just so inaccurate, I was constantly going between "faster reload and put more shells out" vs "bigger shells and do more damage when I actually hit" GK is a monster, she's totally worth the grind. Armour is amazing and a huge health pool. With all those shells, she hits like a truck. It feels like a exponential increase in fire power. You can just park her angled and fire on anyone who dares push you. Usually it's enough to keep anyone away from that specific cap, unless you get one of those yolo idiots that want to die and get focused by your team just for the sake of pushing you. Bayern was a whole lot of fun too, you have one of the bigger gun calibers of that tier along with warspite.

    The game is frustrating and unfun

    Make sure you're actually locked on to target, hit X on and off, check your minimap as well for the circle around your target. Multiple times I've fired on targets only to watch my shells go into the water because of lock on bug

    I was curious seeing as your stats are private. Now that you mention 20knots, I understand you're playing low tier and might be a new player. Just stick with it, early game is a bit of a grind, but from Tier 6 and up there are some great ships and good fun. Wait until you get to the Fuso, Nagato, North Carolina, Bayern, Bismarck. They all have their own characteristics that make them fun. MM will be matchmaking, not much you can do.

    Should have never installed Match Making monitor

    Most online games that have anything to do with downing an enemy will have useful statistics. MMM has its merits, I downloaded it a few days ago. It has completely shocked me at times, even more so when the flank you're on has a WR in the high 30s, and you just wonder to yourself, am I even making the right decision sticking on this flank? Within 2 minutes these 30%'ers have yolo'd the cap and died. I've been using it to find a buddy in the 50% area, and it works pretty good. We've had games where our team was 46% vs 54%, and just sticking with that one guy that knows what he's doing has helped us win the game even though the odds weren't in our favour from the start. I understand the guys that play to relax and unwind though, just let them play their game and try pick up the pieces as best as you can.

    Please Get Rid of Dreadnaught and FireProof!

    You can't get those achievements by camping behind cover. Both are awarded by tanking damage for the team. Rather than your cruisers or dds getting hit. It's you, and that's your award. It's you that's getting HE spammed and losing 40% of your health to fires. It's you bow tanking AP shells. I've only ever received those achievements for my best games. Tanking 1.5 - 2 million potential damage, using all heals. That 2 million worth of shells could have deleted near enough your entire team. Your logic is backwards. You really think those fusos and nagatos are getting a damn thing camping the border? Your "fighting" for your team is actually suiciding. Your average damage is 12,000. That's only one or two salvos playing a BB, and you're dead.

    Why do you still play this game?

    Slower change of pace from playing battlefield. I do enjoy this game at times, it has its moments. I find warships from past times interesting, I love how you can play huge iconic ships of their time. I actually really enjoyed it before 8.0. With wows though, I get this feeling of complete hopelessness when you see your team just suicide for reasons no one would know. It's just frustrating at times, the game can be thrown after an all cap lead and there's absolutely nothing you can do. Same goes for teams that we absolutely stomp, with us only losing one or two ships. I do feel bad for the other team because it could very easily have been my own team to get destroyed. So I leave and go back to fps games and alternate between them. I'd like to see an improvement made towards MM. Less so about tiers, perhaps group the nearest 5% into a game as long as waiting times are reasonable. Just a different format for farming potatoes I guess. Just taking things a little slower now and waiting for this current meta to settle into what we'll be playing for the next few months. Otherwise I'm happy enough to play it.

    Captain skills

    Better off choosing FP instead. If you have friendlies on your port side, and a DD is somewhere spotting, it's likely on your starboard. DD locations are easy to work out. Wait for PT to change when they're targeting you, change your direction and wait for their torps to come. Or pick Vigilance and Expert loader for 4 points to make quick changes to HE shells if DD fighting is your worry.

    Ships ive gotten from the santa boxes

    Those bolded ones are pretty much the last two 1x20 buys. I got Belfast, Kami and Nikolia in the second last crate buy. I got Missouri in the very last buy. I bolded because those were the apparent rarer ones to get.

    Ships ive gotten from the santa boxes

    Bought 20x Big gifts every weekend for about a month. Sometimes I was getting 4 ships per 20 crates if I was lucky. Picked up 6 of the rare ones in total. I said to myself, this will be the last buy. Looks like RNG was in my favour. Also got; BBs: Roma Kii Gasogne Dunkerque Okt. Rev Nikolai Arizona Alabama Texas Mutsu Cruisers: Atago Indianapolis Boise Murmansk Krasny Molotov Kutuzov Prinz Eugen Belfast Huanghe De Grasse Duca Abruzzi Nueve De Julio DDs: Kamikaze Asashio Sims Kidd Gremy Okhotnik T61 Z39 Blyska Anshan Loyang Aigle Le Terrible

    Battle Strat

    Tank enough damage that you don't die before the game ends, and you have the chance to use all your heals. Without being so passive that you have 3/4 health and all your heals left at the end. If you're finishing the game with lots of HP and heals your cruisers did the job you're supposed to do and died. Low tier DDs have terrible torp ranges, sub 6km. So if you see one rushing you kite away and watch your priority target move from (1) (0) (1) this means they've gone from guns, launched torps, back to guns. You'll easily run the distance of their torps so they shouldn't hit you. Be aggressive, but not so much where you get targeted by 3 or more. Once youve made the wrong choice and need to run, 20knot top speed makes that very hard to do. Cruisers fear your guns, as long as your in a good position you have strong map control. Fire at anything that shows you broadside, that's a mistake that should be punished, sometimes you can delete them with one salvo.

    WG you need to be more careful (not a complaint/attack)

    Why don't you make a div with your clan mates just for one random game, at least you guys can make the most of the experience. Just ignore the chat, no one actually speaks anything worth reading really. For the most part the other team and your own team play like bots anyway. I agree PvP can be awful at times. In PvP you can get 1000xp doing as little as 10000-15000 damage it seems if your team takes the win. Anyway, just an idea.

    Vanguard Vs. Monarch

    Monarch's stealth is pretty much best in game. I find her easier to play when up tiered for some reason, my avg damage and win rate is higher as well. Used her in T8 ranked to grind xp and did quite well. Very forgiving ship to play. Vanguard requires a different play style. You have to protect your citadel whilst also dealing damage. Fast and handles really well. You can manoeuvre out of incoming shells and torps if you catch them firing early. My Monarch WR: 65%, Lion; 57%. Vanguard a not so impressive 47%. MM when I first got Vangaurd it was pretty much myself being the only T8 against Yamatos and GKF for about 30 games.

    No need to save ship once team is winning ?

    If both teams are close on points it's not a good decision to just suicide. Even a two cap advantage can be flipped quite easily. Happened to me yesterday when I played in Vangaurd. We had a 400 point lead. Easy win. Three of our cruisers thought it was a great idea to fail push BBs to get desperate torp kills. Turns out they get citadelled and died. Our BBs were hungry for torps and cruisers letting red DDs run havok. In the end it was myself vs four ships. cruiser died from fire. I had to sink a dd, kgv and angle and kite at 5km distance from a 3/4 health massachusetts. Got the Mass down to 700hp and we won on time due to a lucky cap advantage. All within the last 5 minutes. Never throw your ship away. Made the game near impossible to win. Luckily enough ended 1000xp ahead of 2nd place. Absolutely never throw your life away if an enemy DD is still alive late game. Your team depends upon your high DPM.
