  1. I was looking at my stats and got really confused. Here's a comparison between my Normandie and Kongou results: Frankly, I'm terrible in the Normandie. (I'm terrible with Kongou too, but not as bad as when I'm playing Normandie.) But when I look at the stats, I consistently play better with Normandie than with Kongou on just about every metric - damage, experience, frags, survival - except win rate. What's even more confusing is that my Normandie has been fully upgraded for all 35 of her games - my Kongou only finally got 2/3 upgrades by game 23. While I try to play to each ship's strengths and weaknesses, overall I play both ships similarly. So I think it's a problem with how I'm approaching both ships. And even though I haven't played many games in either ship, I'd like to start figuring out why my performance has this pattern. I know there's a lot of things I can do to improve, but I'm not sure where to focus first. Is it most likely my micro game, like angling and aim? Should I rethink what roles I can play on my team with the Normandie? Is there a shift in the meta between T5 and T6 I'm ignoring? I've heard that Fusou plays similar to Normandie, so I'd really like to figure out what I'm doing wrong before I get to her. I'd appreciate any advice!
  2. There's been a rather alarming influx of players in the game who get from noob to high tier and learn absolutely nothing along the way. It's to the point that winning a game is becoming more of a prize for beating your head against a wall enough times than the norm for many players. I myself am so frustrated that I've got more chat bans than a conservative on twitter. I'm hoping there are still enough players left who give a crapabout their game and want to see it be fun and enjoyable again. I'd like to offer to help new players who are just learning and old players who need to learn new game mechanics. I primarily play battleships, and will be happy to help anyone who feels stuck or who wants to improve. I have a bit of experience in cruisers and destroyers as well, but I'm hoping there will be more qualified players to assist in those areas, along with the new carrier gameplay when it hits the live servers. Ideally I'd like to do this in-game, because i feel hands on experience is the best way to learn, but if you've been playing for a bit and just need a few tips or general help, I'm happy to answer. To be clear, i don't want this to be just another passive help thread with outdated videos being posted. I really want this to help people, to answer their specific questions and to provide real, hands on help. Also, please don't shoot down each others answers. What works for someone may not necessarily work for someone else, and I'd like everyone to share what they've learned that makes them successful in-game.
  3. Of the ships that I won in Santa Crates thus far this year, the Aigle is one I haven't taken out just yet and the main reason why is because I'm not entirely certain how to play her. Now just as a prefix: I have no problem with DDs that have subpar concealment, not-great torps, or guns with slow shells. I have a Benson, Kiev, Blyska, and Haida that make that perfectly clear. However, none of those ships have all three in the same package like the Aigle does. She has the same detection range as my Blyska, but she doesn't have the flat-arc'ed guns that my little Polish beast or my Kiev (with it's 7.1 km detection) have. She also has only 200 m of stealth torping range and her guns fire slower shells than both my Benson and my Haida. This all combines together to leave me with one perplexing question: How do I play her right? Should I do what I do with my Benson or Haida: get close, smoke up, and let loose with the guns? Should I hide behind islands and wait for ambushes? Should I go into caps, smoke up, and wait for enemies to come my way? I'd just like some advice. Thanks in advance to anyone who responds.

    Ognevoi: How to Play Advice

    Just wondering how Ognevoi's meant to be played. She doesn't seem to excel at any one area: okay torps(?), low number of guns, okay reload. Is she supposed to be a gunboat, a torpboat, or a mix of both? Any advice on how to play her?
  5. I have been playing this game for around 1 year now. It seems that I am still not very good as players I play with and play against. I mean out of 12 shells in 1 salvo - I only get 2 or 3 hits??? Most of my end games stat's no matter what ship I play - DD, CC or BB - it is like 30% accuracy or less :-( When I play CV's - recently it seems most ships all have high AA - making it hard to target any ship without losing most of my planes in 2 strikes :-0.... only play T5 CV's because not comfortable using the "straffing (takes the fun out of real dog-fights between the fighter planes)" I have been told to try and watch you tube videos - which I have done. I still get destroyed - usually 1 of the first 3 ships usually sunk. I really don't want to spend more cash for flags.. So any good advice will greatly be appreciated!!! Good luck and fare seas shipmates!!!!!
  6. Hi guys! I was wondering, now that I am on a historical streak, whether to buy one of two iconic world war 2 ships and which one. The infamous Hms Hood, the ruler of the seven seas for the British navy, but sunk by the mighty Bismarck by a hit to her aft magazine, or the Scharnhorst class battleship, with those rapid firing (for a battleship, at least,) 12 inch guns. Both seemingly potent tier 7 battleships, but which one is better? what are the pros and cons? you tell me!
  7. So I got the Roon recently after the nerf and having a bit of trouble with it. All commentaries I found on youtube was before the nerf telling how it has great gun reload. Now with 10 sec reload I am very tempted to get the 6th equip for the buff in reload (to 9.7s ugh) but at a very heavy price in turret traverse. So I want to get the expert marksman instead of 10% reduction in damage control, but wasn't sure if it is worth it. I think the turret traverse is slow but haven't played other heavy cruisers to compare it to or if the ship needs it at all. Any suggestions?

    Looking For Advice

    The reason I made this post is to ask for advice and information. I've reached a point where I consider myself relatively skilled at the game overall, and so I want to know where I stand compared to most players. I started playing WoWs 80 days ago. In 912 random battles across 195 total hours spent in-game I have reached one line's T10 (Minotaur), one line's T9 (Lion), one line's T8 (Kagero), three lines' T6 (Ryujo, Aoba and Nurnberg), two lines' T5 (Omaha and Jianwei) and one line's T4 (Myogi). 251 of those battles were in premium ships and I have a 47% win rate and a 0.9 destruction ratio. Most of those battles were with a premium account, I'd guess about 850 of them. I have played 15 ranked battles, all of them in the Massachusetts, and I have a 60% win rate and a 2.78 destruction ratio in them. At the time of making this post, this is what my profile summary looks like for random battles: Is there a way for me to compare my performance and progress to the average, and if so, how? Where do I stand compared to the average player, and apart from in-game settings is there anything I should be using/changing? (IE mods/add-ons)

    Republique vs Yamato

    To the good BB players out there. I just unlocked the Alsace, but haven't started playing it yet. I heard they nerfed her so the videos about it are out of date. I also have the Izumo at 39k XP and am trying to decide which line to focus on first. I've had good and bad games in the Izumo and have mixed feelings on her. First - Is the Alsace still fun to play? Or at least more fun the Izumo? Second - Which is the better pay off? The Yammy or the Rep? Thanks!

    Clan Suggestions

    I just started playing this year an was wanting to know some suggestions for a clan to join. I typically play DD but, I also occasionally play BB and CA's. I am about average player and not looking for something too fast paced (kinda laid back but, with good teamwork). I am getting tired of these random battle potatoes where there is not communication or common goal. Thanks!

    Tirpitz captain struggle

    Hello everyone, recently I earned myself a Tirpitz from the Camo contest. And so far I enjoy it a lot, very brawler ish, which fits my playstile. So thats what I want to maximize. Now I have a little problem when it comes to the captain skills: I have 2 german captains so far that I could use: 1 is a regular one, the other the one that gives you a bonus on the torp detection skill. Sadly I ran the torp detection one on my cruisers so far and would have to retrain with hard earned cpt points. ^^ And since the other cpt is already skilled for the tirpi it would save me a lot of points. But I wouldnt get the torp skill bonus. So I am struggeling a bit on the skills and what to pick. So far: R1: PM R2: EM R3: BFT R4: AFT going for MFC for 14 points but besides that I am torn. I run the spotter range upgrade, so using the bonus captain+ improved Vigilance would grant me a big torp spot range, but do I need it? That would give me Vigilance + AR. in the end, but no concealment whatsoever. As an alternative I could go full stealth and replace the upgrade with the concealment one + Skill? Or a mix maybe? Like concealment upgrade, butu Vigilance skill or concealment skill + concealment upgrade? I am really torn right now about which captain to pick, and for which skills to plan. Open for all help. Thanks.
