    Mikasa is a Blast in PvE!

    I am impressed. In a Random game, assuming no other Mikasa's are in queue, what ship do they substitute?

    Mikasa is a Blast in PvE!

    I agree. The whole Dreadnought revolution was "all big guns". Pre-dreadnoughts relied on all sizes of guns with the thought most fighting would close in quickly (until the Battle of Tsushima). From Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Tsushima): Prior to the Russo-Japanese War, countries constructed their battleships with mixed batteries of mainly 6-inch (152 mm), 8-inch (203 mm), 10-inch (254 mm) and 12-inch (305 mm) guns, with the intent that these battleships fight on the battle line in a close-quarter, decisive fleet action. The Battle of Tsushima conclusively demonstrated that battleship speed and big guns[7] with longer ranges were more advantageous in naval battles than mixed batteries of different sizes. So far, statistically in PvE, I do about the same as my Tier II cruisers. The big difference is I have 10 point captain on Mikasa and the cruisers had a 1 pointer probably. So while fun, it is under powered from a game play perspective. 6-8 km may be unbalancing, but I think an additional 0.5-1.0 km could be justified from both a game play and historical viewpoint. I don't play RvR much, so I am speaking strictly from my PvE experiences. When Mikasa first came out, I believe I read she had favorable match-making and got Tier I games. Given she has no Tier I and lots of Tier III games, it seems reasonable.

    Mikasa is a Blast in PvE!

    Just finished a Tier II co-op game in my Mikasa (10 point capt secondary spec). My teammates were 5 bots and two new players. One had 16 games played co-op (no random). The other had about 200 co-op games played, with a 73% WR, I didn't even know that was possible (until I saw him play). By the time I chugged into battle, we had 2 greens left (me and the 16 game newbie) and 6 reds (including Mikasa). I had warned my teammate to stay away Mikasa secondaries and shoot from a distance, so I saw him shooting AP from about 8-10 km... not exactly what I meant but he got a Plays Well for listening. Anyway, I play the Mikasa like the Nassau..always be turning and let the secondaries do the work. After the low stuff was gone, then it was time to get the Mikasa. My buddy got too close to the red Mikasa but managed to barely escape with a thin slice of health. He ended up with one kill and I had 6. I understand Mikasa is terrible in PvP, but I love it in PvE! I think I will save this replay. :)

    Which U.S. Cruisers for a PvE Main?

    5 co-op games in Helena so far. It is very nice!

    Which U.S. Cruisers for a PvE Main?

    I just wanted to update everyone who so kindly helped me out on this topic. I just got Helena and used Elite Commander XP to get a 10 point captain all trained for her: Priority Target, Expert Marksman, Demolition Expert and IFHE. I also used Free XP for the modules and got the upgrades, so good to go! No camo yet (couldn't resist and got the Mikasa instead with my doubloons.. that ship is a blast in PvE with 10 point secondary captain). Update on my other two ships in the branch: Omaha: 50/53 WR Dallas: 141/143 WR So that makes them 97.45% combined. My overall WR for all ships is 97.87%, so just slightly lower. If only I was better at torps! OK, to play Helena!

    Most Efficient Turning?

    Thanks everyone for the replies. I have already put this information to use.

    Most Efficient Turning?

    By the way, I normally do: G. Full power, wait until have a little speed (5-10 knots) going, then light rudder  I have no idea if it most efficient.

    Most Efficient Turning?

    Here is a question I had in the back of my mind for sometime. Say the game starts and you are playing a BB (assume Colorado for example). You want to get to a point 15 KM away exactly 45 degrees starboard. What is the most efficient way to do that? A. Full power, hard rudder immediately until just over halfway turned B. Full power, hard rudder immediately until almost all the way turned, then reverse rudder until pointed the way you want. C. Full power, wait until have a little speed (5-10 knots) going, then hard rudder D. Full power, wait until have a lot speed going (10-18 knots), then hard rudder E-H. The above options, except light on the rudder I. Something else And yes, I know the game will be over before a Colorado can go 15 KM. ;) I guess i could use a stopwatch on my iPhone and do some tests in training room, but it is easier to just ask the experts.

    Should I save my free XP?

    Do you have Nelson?

    Which U.S. Cruisers for a PvE Main?

    I definitely get IFHE for my light cruisers. They have 10 point captains available again for 4M credits, so I got two more US ones for when I get Helena and one other ship. I would have bought more except I am broke. Also, Omaha and Dallas are the first ships I Priority Target on as well. For my BB's I usually like Expert Loader more and just assume everything is shooting at me, or will soon. But with these light cruisers I find Priority Target is great because I die so fast it is good to know when to run away screaming. Oh, status update: Still having fun with US CL Omaha 45/47 WR. Dallas 86/88 WR Dallas is really good at AA! About 28K XP from Helena. Saving Free XP for modules when I get it. Saving coal still for Salem (or maybe Tier X BB, we'll see when I get close) One thing I wonder... WG said some CL's MIGHT get ASW when submarines are introduced. Seems to me the USN CL line would be a good candidate for that given they don't have torps. What would folks guess the odds at for that?

    Which U.S. Cruisers for a PvE Main?

    Oh, I am not against torps! I am just not very good at them. Sometimes I will have great games with them, but usually I am inconsistent and would do better just shooting than fumbling around. I really admire folks who are highly skilled with them. I am good at dodging them, at least in PvE.

    What single game mechanic would you change in Co-op

    Gratz on a great game.

    What single game mechanic would you change in Co-op

    I do sometimes mess around in the training rooms, but ultimately you need rewards to progress. One time in a game I said "Warspite is going West". Someone replied "Yeah, stop by Vancouver and San Fran". I said "Yeah, great cities..love visiting both of them." -1 Karma.
