    how do you Donskoi?

    ^This. I’ve seen some posts in other threads where people don’t take IFHE on 180mm guns, and it never made any sense. IFHE bumps your HE pen from 30mm to 38mm. This allows you to farm just about anything at long range using your Russian railguns. If you are having trouble staying alive, take the range mod in slot six, which pushes your maximum range out to over 19km. Donskoi has good ballistics so you can still be effective against BBs and cruisers at this kind of range, so utilize it until you become more familiar with the ship’s handling (she’s fast but she turns like a bus). Once you’ve figured out her quirks you can switch to the ROF module so you can burn everything to waterline. This worked well for me when I was grinding the ship. Also, I went with concealment in slot 5 over rudder shift, and find the extra concealment more beneficial, making it easier to go dark when you are under heavy fire.

    IFHE change and secondary builds

    You will definitely no longer be seeing it on Gneisenau and GK. Currently, the 128mm secondaries of these ships pen 31mm of plating (128/4=32, so they can pen 31mm). With the change to the general rule of HE pen, these guns will be able to pen exactly 32mm without IFHE.

    Anything better for doubloons than Massachusetts?

    If you enjoy secondary build BBs Massachusetts is an excellent choice. She is widely considered to be one of the stronger tier 8 battleships and usually performs very well in tier 8 ranked. I notice you have quite a few German premiums already. If you have experience playing and enjoy German cruisers, Prinz Eugen is also a very good choice at tier 8.
  4. I run a hybrid secondary/survival build with PT, AR, SI, AFT, MFCSA, FP, and PM commander skills. For upgrades I run auxiliary armaments, damage control, secondary armaments, damage control, and concealment in slots 1-5, respectively. This build seems to strike the right balance between secondary potency and keeping me alive long enough to use them effectively.

    Post your SC loot here

    I got 50x Restless Fire camo. I’m not complaining.

    Royal Tokens not in Daily Missions

    This is pretty normal. IIRC, daily mission rewards like this usually kick in the day after the patch goes live, likely because different servers have different patch dates (I believe NA gets updates a calander day earlier than other servers).
  7. ^Yes, that is a feature of 457mm AP, but I have to disagree. It’s definitely good to have, but I’d rather have 406s with supercruiser dispersion (a la the 457s of Georgia and Thunderer) or the great close range dispersion of Soviet BBs than 457s without it.
  8. Only the 460mm (18.1”) guns of Yamato and Musashi overmatch 32mm of plating, which you find on the bow and stern of tier VIII+ battleships. The 457mm (18.0”) guns you find on other battleships cannot overmatch this threshold, and any tier VIII+ battleship can bounce these shells off their bow if they are properly angled. In fact, the only real advantage of 457mm guns over 406mm (16”) rifles in terms of overmatch is the former’s ability to overmatch the 30mm of plating found on the upper belts of many cruisers. Most of the time, a decent player can wreck your face with 406mm guns just as easily as with 457s. The significant advantage most 457mm-armed ships have is better accuracy, which is designed to offset their smaller number of barrels. A good player who knows how to aim can leverage that very effectively. In fact, I recently finished grinding the Izumo and I prefer her gunnery to Musashi’s. IMO, the extra accuracy of her 406s is worth giving up the overmatch advantage of the 460s since Musashi does not have Yamato’s excellent sigma.

    Is DD game play really that hard?

    If only there was a readily accessable resource with all this information... https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Consumables#Surveillance_Radar TLDR: 1) Is it a Russian, American or British tier VIII+ cruiser? Then it has access to radar, and while British CLs almost always run smoke, Russian and American ships usually run radar. 2) Tier VII cruisers: Belfast, Atlanta, and Indianapolis have radar. 3) DDs: Black and the tier VIII+ tech tree PA DDs have Radar. Like RN CLs, though, PA DDs have to give up smoke. 4) Missouri is the sole battleship in the game with radar. It’s not that difficult to remember.

    New to WoW

    Welcome to the game and the forums. Spend as much time in the lower tiers as you need to learn the basics. Once you break into tiers V-VI, the game becomes much less forgiving. Also, take this time to familiarize yourself with each of the classes in the game. You may hate playing DDs, but the best way to learn to counter them is to play them yourself. The same applies to CVs or any other class in the game.

    No More Super Containers?

    I've gotten two in the last few days: doubloons and steel.
  13. I agree 100%. Of course, the players that engage in this type of activity are unlikely to be convinced by anything you or anyone else says.
