    High Tier BBs play?

    FdG, Soyuz, New Mexico, & Kongo are all in my fleet. Highest tier anything non-BB is the Kuma.

    High Tier BBs play?

    This message really needs to be sent to literally everyone in the last three teems I was in. I was grouped with CAs with longer gun range than the Soyuz who wouldn't advance any closer than the absolute furthest extremes of their range. So I could chose to either advance without support and maybe hit something or might as well go chill with the CV.

    Glad to hear someone likes the Bismark. I really could not stand it. My issue might be I don't play CAs really much at all. The highest I've ever got with them being T4.

    High Tier BBs play?

    Thanks, but this also happens in the Sovetsky Soyuz. I've just wholly abandoned trying to use secondary BBs because of the FdG and Bismark back to back. Moved on to main battery brawling battleships like the Soviets. I've gotten to T5 with all BB trees except Britain & France. Got to T4 with Jap Cruisers & American DDs & CVs. I've tried playing other categories of ship. I rarely die in DDs but I'm bored playing them. Thank you very much for the response.

    The Battleship. I get torp'd out of nowhere with nobody ever seeing my battleship. Really boils the blood.

    DDs are more a source of frustration and uninstalls than fear. Coming around an island into a double spread of torps that's both tight enough I can't slip between them and broad enough there's no way to get to either side or take the brunt in the torpedo belt from never having been detected that match is a great way to put me in a sour mood the rest of the session.

    High Tier BBs play?

    Yep, that would be part of it. Even in T7-8 I tend to get randomed into teams so cowardly I have to take cap points myself, in a battleship.

    High Tier BBs play?

    Hello everyone. Am I mistaken or does aggressive play in BBs become nonviable around T9? I've gotten to T9 with the Soviet & German BBs now and I'm beginning to suspect that to be the case. At first I thought it was just the poor balance of the Bismark and the F.D. Grobe being more of a defensive ship. Now having had the Vladivostok for a while and getting the Sovetsky Soyuz I'm thinking I should just move my Soviet commander to my Lenin and ignore the tech tree from now on. I don't really have anything negative to say about the Soyuz, really from the gameplay I get before the ubiquitous issue at this tier it's been a great ship. The issue I've been having is no matter what if I'm not actively trying to keep the closest hostile ship at just barely within the furthest extremes of my main battery range. Sometimes all at once sometimes over the course of several volleys from a DD I can't find but unavoidably I'm torpedoed for the majority of the damage done to me unless there's a BB that can overpen my armor. I'm just reaching the conclusion that at this tier the DDs are stealthy enough and their torpedoes powerful enough to serve as a hard counter to how I enjoy the game.

    Similar ships?

    Just finished watching about halfway through iChase's video and played a match. Still died second out of the entire team but I've most definitely improved with just a little of how armor & aiming works explained to me and a few UI mods.

    Thanks, working through iChase's series now. I hadn't expected there to be mods in a multiplayer competitive game. Grabbed the ones he pointed out in his video on settings/interface, hopefully they help.

    Similar ships?

    Yeah, I have tried to play a bit of everything, even then I have ended up effectively specializing in Battleships. Cruiser up to qualifying for Battleship in most empires has been OK... just about gave up trying to unlock any Carriers with having to play Destroyers. I really dislike enforced stealth and DDs are squishy enough stealth is enforced. I've heard that controlling Carriers used to be a lot more like playing an RTS and I wish I had the chance to play them back then.

    Thanks! Where are the Siegfried & Georgia? I can't seem to find them.

    Similar ships?

    Thanks, that really does help. The torps were a plus to me using the Gneis. I love being able to keep pace with the cruisers and punch holes into battleships while the secondaries punish any destroyers that get too close. I've fought the Richelieu before... it's always terrifying. I think I'd like it. All the guns being on the front makes it difficult to deal with and allows them to angle very effectively. The USSR battleships would almost be what I was looking for but their armor is so squishy... and the Izmal just about needs to go full broadside to use most of its guns.
  14. Hello everyone. My apologies if this isn't the correct section for this. Are there any ships similar to the Gneisenau? So far to me it has been the stand out of the German Battleship line. Something of comparable speed to the cruisers of its rank with a lot of health. Slow reloading, high damage guns are OK or quick reloading weaker guns... the Gneis kind of has both between its secondary armament and main guns. I'm fond of its ability to both terrorize destroyers and significantly threaten battleships. I've tried the Bismark & F.Der Grobe and they don't quite have the same functionality that I'm looking for, and for that matter neither did the lower rank German battleships. I'm thinking Heavy Cruisers would probably be the category that I'm looking for and have started working toward the Furutaka. Someone please let me know if that's not quite going to fit the bill.
