  1. I seem to have plateaued with my dd play in the game (up to Tier VIII in the USN, IJN, and Pan Asian lines). I'm not having problems in Co-op play (see attached). Thing is that the Bots are predicable in their agreession, so you can plan for that. It's Random that I'm having problems with. I've watched the Ytube videos for the ships I'm playing, consulted the WIki information, and my captains skills for the three dds are the highest in their respective national groups (14-17 skills between the 3). I've gone into the training room and practiced my gun aiming and torp throwing, so that's not the problem. I have dialed down the aggression to last longer in the game (per the suggestion of many), but I end up fighting hard as my team gives up too many caps and we lose on points. If I'm aggressive at the start of the game, I spot a lot of the red team, but it seems to take my team forever to support me. I know that there has to be a balance here somewhere. Any suggestions to improve my gameplay would be much appreciated. Oh, and before you ask, yes I have played BBs and cruisers of the respective nations up to Tier V for the BBs and Tier VII for the cruisers. I enjoy playing the little ships more.
  2. What line was your first objective

    Personally mine is USN BB's. Why? I live in canada so that and UK where the closet representation. Also big bad BB's lol
  3. (CHAPTER 6) Naval Battle of Guadalcanal part 1 WE will try this on this on the coming Friday on MAY 18th 5/18/18 and 8:30-11:30PM US Eastern standard time , 7:30-10:30 PM US CENTRAL TIME, 6:30-9:30 PM US MOUNTAIN TIME, 5:30-7:30 PM US PACIFIC TIME , 10:30AM -1:30 PM in Sydney Australia 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM in Perth Australia. this will be in the training room labeled naval battle Guadalcanal part 1 chapter 6. search for training rooms by Outwardpanicjoe IJN force addition to the battleships Hiei (Abe's flagship) and Kirishima, light cruiser Nagara (us kuma class or similar.) destroyers (Samidare, Murasame, Asagumo, Teruzuki, Amatsukaze, Yukikaze, Ikazuchi, Inazuma, Akatsuki, Harusame, and Yūdachi).[19] Three more destroyers (Shigure, Shiratsuyu, and Yūgure) would provide a rear guard in the Russell Islands during Abe's foray into the waters of "Savo Sound" around and near Savo Island. For this scenario we will use the 2 Kongo class BBs, any kuma class light cruiser or similar. DDS 3 Shiratsuyu, 2 Kagero, 3 Akatsuki, 1 Akizuki. Objective: push the USN out of Guadalcanal and away from the volcano destroy at least 2 CLs and 4 DDs to claim victory and make way for your transports. USN force His force consisted of two heavy cruisers (San Francisco and Portland), three light cruisers (Helena, Juneau, and Atlanta), and eight destroyers: Cushing, Laffey, Sterett, O'Bannon, Aaron Ward, Barton, Monssen, and Fletcher. Admiral Callaghan commanded from San Francisco. For this scenario we are going to use 1 Indianapolis for the Portland, San Francisco (new Orleans), 2 Atlanta classes, 1 mahan, 1 sims , 2 fletchers, 2 bensons. OBJECTIVE : USN must push the IJN out of the slot and take out, take one BB down to 1/3 HP , destroy 3 DDs at least one must be in the Akatsuki class, and one cruiser to claim victory. This is a closer quarter’s engagement fight all must fight in close to the slot by or behind the volcano. if your team thinks you will lose the ship needed to take a victory you can pull back a map border to try again but it the enemy team takes out the ships before you get there or capture the slot they will claim victory. if anyone is interested in helping to make new events or suggestions feel free to join the workshop discord https://discord.gg/ygjyP2G
  4. Why can't everyone just sit down, drink their favorite drink and play games on their computers. http://www.businessinsider.com/us-navy-reactivating-2nd-fleet-for-atlantic-amid-tensions-with-russia-2018-5
  5. In Random, I know how..get help from a friendly cruiser. In Ranked, when there's only 7 on 7, I've found myself one-on-one with a Kidd in a Benson twice tonight (both ended badly for me). Anyone out there have any tricks that I can try? Kiting helps, but when I turn to try and launch torps, I'm a goner.
  6. Im curious, how many of you know the new york/texas maximum belt armor thickness? post guesses and comments down below. it might be thicker then you think unless you know quite a bit about the armor viewer and new york armor scheme.

  8. A friend of mine compiled most of the United States Navy Technical Mission to Japan from the now defunct Fischer-Tropsch Archive so that people can navigate it again in one location. https://pacificwararchive.wordpress.com/2018/04/21/reports-of-the-u-s-naval-technical-mission-to-japan-1945-1946/ Edit: He is also working on the European one now. https://pacificwararchive.wordpress.com/2018/04/21/records-of-the-u-s-naval-technical-mission-in-europe-1944-1947/
  9. Hey everyone, Isaac here. And in this early morning video, I'll be discussing the new changes that have recently been posted about adjustments to some of the USN cruisers coming up in the USN split. What are your thoughts on these new changes? Do you think they need to do another adjustment on detectability for Pensacola? How do you think Baltimore will deal with the ROF buff she's been granted that puts her slightly better than the old New Orleans was? Leave a message here on the forums with your thoughts and your opinions. Let's make sure we get some feedback going to WarGaming about the current proposed changes! Click the video and leave a message in the YouTube comments section. Give it a thumbs up if you liked it, or a dislike if you didn't. As always, feel free to subscribe for more late-night shenanigans. As always, take care!
  10. WE will try this on this coming FRIDAY and Sunday on APRIL 20th and 22nd 4/20/18 and 4/20/18 8:30-11:30PM US Eastern standard time , 7:30-10:30 PM US CENTRAL TIME, 6:30-9:30 PM US MOUNTAIN TIME, 5:30-7:30 PM US PACIFIC TIME , 10:30AM -1:30 PM in Sydney Australia 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM in Perth Australia. this will be in the training room labeled chapter 5 battle of Santa Cruz islands. search for training rooms by Outwardpanicjoe (CHAPTER 5) Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands,– The U.S. naval forces were deployed as two separate carrier groups, Task Force 16 under carrier Enterprise, and Task Force 17 under carrier Hornet and were separated from each other by about 17 km . The carriers were supported by one battleship (USS South Dakota), three heavy cruisers (Portland, Northampton, Pensacola), three light anti-aircraft cruisers (San Juan, San Diego, Juneau), and 14 destroyers. FOR THIS SCENARIO the USN will have the USS Smith (MAHAN CLASS) escorting the USS enterprise with defensive fire and another DD will escort Hornet closely. In Hornets group will have Northampton there and Juneau and 2 USN destroyers at tier 6 or 7. With enterprise, the BB SD (we will use the Alabama), Portland (Indianapolis), Pensacola, San Juan (Atlanta) and 2 DDs one mahan class and the other can be any tier 6-7 USN dd. OBJECTIVE – main objective burn and take out carrier Zuiho and have enterprise survive Secondary save hornet. The Japanese naval forces were divided into three groups: the "Main Body" consisted of Shōkaku, Zuikaku, and Zuihō plus one heavy cruiser and eight destroyers, and the "Vanguard" force contained a battleships, three heavy cruisers, one light cruiser, and seven destroyers, and battleship Hiei.. FOR THIS SCENARIO and limitations of the training room. We will go mainly with the main body group we will have 2 shokakus and 1 zuiho , shokaku, Zuikaku, and Zuiho., battleship Hiei and kirishima (both kongo classes) Atago and another any Japanese light cruiser kuma and 4 tier 7 Japanese DDs some where known to be shiratsuyus guarding and escorting the cvs. Objective: main destroy hornet and her flotilla (optional). Secondary damage or sink enterprise and damage Uss smith. IJN Zuiho and USS HORNET CVS cannot put out single fires on the first attack but can put out anything more then that and Zuiho can only be taken out by dive bombers. ships of both fleets must stay in a defensive AA formation for CVs protection. once IJN spots USN planes they can launch planes. USN cvs can have there dive bombers scouting only till the Japanese feet is discovered. if anyone is interested in helping to make new events or suggestions feel free to join the workshop discord https://discord.gg/ygjyP2G
  11. Hey everyone, Isaac here and just thought I'd drop a video going through some of the proposed changes currently put up on the supertest that I caught this morning from the WoWS Dev Blog! What do you think about the changes? Do you think it's getting time for WG to address the whole 'battlecruiser' concept in-game with a new class of ships or is it not worth it to do so? What do you think about the potential for Stalingrad to be a Clan Wars reward ship only? Would you mind it potentially being slightly overpowered in that matter or do you have a tin-foil had on as you run around your house screaming 'Russian Bias'? Leave a comment in the comment sections on the video, or add your reply to the forum post. Let's get some ideas and suggestions back to WG!
  12. Sitting the lobby of a Dr's office, my wife noticed an older man with a hat naming the DD he served on, the USS Sproston(DD-577) We always thank Veterans for their service and so we struck up a conversation for a short time. I had never heard of the Sproston but soon found out she was a Fletcher class Destroyer and served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Our new friend crewed the boat during Vietnam and suffered through an encounter with a typhoon that damaged the ship. She ended up sailing to Midway for repairs and had pumps running the entire time. He said she was decidedly bow-down when she reached the portable dry-dock sent from Pearl to recover her. Wiki has a fairly thorough history of DD-577. Some of her Fire Missions in Vietnam were in support of the 1st Cavalry in 1966. We also know an Army Vet who served during that time period in the 1st Cav. Amazing how the two worlds intersected through merely thanking Vets for his/her service.
  13. I played a match in the USS Texas that I got from Twitch Prime rewards. When I finished, I noticed I hadn't made any progress in the personal combat mission. When I went to look at it, I saw that I couldn't click the "Battle" button. It told me I needed to select a suitable ship, but I obviously have the USS Texas selected. What's going on?
  14. Three days of free premium time coming up. Use it to grind your USN cruiser line and prepare for the split.
  15. USN vs IJN Carriers (after changes)

    So basically, heard that the USN line got a few "Buffs" where the crap loadouts were removed and a more generic loadout was introduced. Is the USN line worth to spend some time into it? Or is it still not good
  16. WE will try this on this coming FRIDAY on APRIL 6th 4/6/18 8:30-11:30PM US Eastern standard time , 7:30-10:30 PM US CENTRAL TIME, 6:30-9:30 PM US MOUNTAIN TIME, 5:30-7:30 PM US PACIFIC TIME , 10:30AM -1:30 PM in Sydney Australia 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM in Perth Australia. this will be in the training room labeled chapter 5 battle of Santa cruz islands.

  17. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/244478356?t=00h59m36s The match is basically my descent into insanity till finally broke and have decided to take things into my own hands. Having DDs on the team with no idea what to do nor have the sense to identify opportunity almost cost the match. At 11 min in (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/244478356?t=01h07m46s), rage was building inside of my skull after seeing the Fletcher derps around doing nothing for the whole match, not to mention the entire team just feeds into bow on des moines, yamato, and their escort DDs for NO REASON. Then remembering the word of the mad titan and all great men that lived before: Why is winning a match in cruisers so freaking hard.
  18. My Navy Days

    1st off I am sorry about the quality of these pictures. A while back I was chatting with @MaliceA4Thoughtwell it turns out we may served on the same operation. It took me a while to find my cruise book, so I brought it in to scan, but of coarse the scanner is not working, plus the book is getting older (from the 1980s) so I just took some pictures. One of these Pictures is of me with some of my crew having "fun" in Lisbon. (I am the one with glasses on). And one is from Gibraltar, RN Staff came on board my ship and I was impressed with the Officer's beard, in the USN our Officers are not permitted beards.
  19. With about 9.5 km camo and the default 14.5 km range, USN T8 - 10 cruisers can easily do pop and shoot, using the low range and good camo to do hit and runs. Feels like the extra range module actually decreases the cruisers' survivability, because it makes more targets able to spot them after shooting.
  20. Maybe it's just me, and I don't have nearly as many games in my USN DDs as I do the IJN/KM/even PA ones, but my Gearing and Fletcher seem to lose torpedo tubes far more often than anything else I play. I don't just mean incapacitated, that happens to all of my DDs, I mean destroyed completely. Even with reload booster/main armaments mods, which should hypothetically cancel each other out, and Preventative Maintenance, this happens quite frequently crippling my effectiveness for the remainder of the game. Are they just lower HP? Does it have to do with angles? Am I getting some kind of confirmation bias? I almost never lose torp tubes on any other DD I play but for these it happens regularly. I guess I'm asking, what am I doing wrong or is this just a national trait?
  21. WILL TRY OUT (CHAPTER 4) THIS FRIDAY 9:45-10:45 PM U.S.EST 3/23/18 (PART 2) BATTLE OF GUADALCANAL (CHAPTER 4) Battle of Cape Esperance Japanese force The six destroyers that accompanied were (Asagumo, Natsugumo, Yamagumo, Shirayuki,tier 7 torpedo boat dds) (Murakumo, a fubuki class) and Akizuki. <(this is the toyko express group) Furutaka, Fubuki , 2 Aobas and Hatsuyuki (fubuki class) this is the combat group Objective (combat group)Push the USN out of the slot and Guadalcanal do get pushed out of the middle slot (Tokyo express group) land on Guadalcanal and escaping undetected. USN force San Francisco(New orleans),salt lake city ( pensacola class) (Helena, Boice will have to use Cleveland’s for these) , Uss Duncan's Benson class DD tier 8 this is the combat group. (scouting dd group there is 2 groups of 2 dds that scout 2 in the North and 2 in the south) they are the destroyers Buchanan, Farenholt, Laffey and McCalla all (Benson classes or sims can work too). Objective : (Combat force)push the IJN out of the slot and hold the slot near the volcano. (scout force) south the north and south parts of the map scare of hold off the Tokyo express till help arrives. Its should look something similar to this V
  22. Hey everyone, Isaac here. And in this early morning video, I'll be discussing the changes that have been posted so far for the upcoming USN cruiser split. What are your thoughts on the available data we have so far? Do you think they've gone a little too overboard on the poor Pensacola? How do you think the New Orleans and the Baltimore will deal with the ROF nerf they're currently being tested with? Leave a message here on the forums with your thoughts and your opinions. Let's make sure we get some feedback going to WarGaming about the current proposed changes! Click the video and leave a message in the YouTube comments section. Give it a thumbs up if you liked it, or a dislike if you didn't. As always, feel free to subscribe for more late-night shenanigans. As always, take care!
  23. 0.7.3 USN Cruiser Changes

    The following changes do not affect the current US cruiser branch. Pensacola (Tier VI) Surface detectability increased from 12.78 km to 14.16 km, and in-smoke firing detectability increased from 7.32 km to 8.44 km. In-tech-tree main gun upgrade was removed. New Orleans (Tier VII) Surface detectability increased from 11.82 km to 12.42 km, and in-smoke firing detectability increased from 6.62 km to 7.05 km. Main gun reload time reduced from 15 seconds to 13 seconds; in-tech-tree main gun upgrade was removed. (also loses access to Slot 5 due to downtier) Baltimore (Tier VIII) Armored extremities reduced to 25 mm. Main gun reload time reduced from 15 seconds to 13 seconds; in-tech-tree main gun upgrade was removed. She retains a sigma of 2.05. (also loses access to heal and slot 6 due to downtier, but she keeps the Super-Heavy Shell, looked on GM3D to confirm, it's included) Buffalo (Tier IX) Armored extremities increased to 27 mm. Main gun reload time reduced from 15 seconds to 13 seconds. Buffalo has the highest alpha strike of any T9 cruiser at a total of 60,000 max AP damage on a 12 gun broadside. However, it is currently unknown whether she keeps the torpedoes she had back a long time ago, chances are she doesn't. Here's where the fun begins. Cleveland (Tier VIII) Superstructure armor increased to 16 mm, armored extremities increased to 25 mm. Surface detectability reduced from 13.3 km to 11.88 km, and in-smoke firing detectability reduced from 6.71 km to 5.64 km. She can get a minimum detection range of 9.1 km now. Main gun reload time reduced from 10 seconds to 7 seconds; 180° rotation time reduced from 22.5 seconds to 18 seconds; in-tech-tree main gun upgrade was removed. Overall improvement on AA guns. The 20mm Orelikons were exceptionally enhanced on Cleveland, providing 9.2 AA DPS (single) and 15.6 AA DPS (twin) per mount. Cleveland can mount Damage Control Party, Hydroacoustic Search/Surveillance Radar, Defensive Fire, and Spotter Plane at the same time. Glory to the Cleveland Masterrace once again.
