  1. So after playing some 150 battles in the Des Moines, finally got the legendary module for it. I heard somewhat mixed reactions to and decided to try it on. IT WAS FABULOUS! I had a lot of troubling in positioning and getting out of tight spots. With better acceleration, I could do it quicker and dodge shells much more easily. It's like what Des Moines should've been. The videos just don't cut it, the ship feels waaaaaaaay different in handling. It's like the ship is gliding on water as if were ice-skating. I was thinking of getting the Salem, but nope. The legendary mod made the Des Moines too much fun to just get a radar-nerfed-ultra heal-premium clone of her. Happy grinding everyone!
  2. Good day all, In an effort to relax and refresh after the past Ranked season, I've decided to go back and try and improve on some of my lowest performing ships. Surprisingly, Worcester is near the bottom of my PR stats on wows-numbers.com. I say surprisingly, because I'm a fairly decent Des Moines captain. But for whatever reason, I just can't find the magic in Worcester yet. I think part of my problem is trying to play them in the exact same manner......island hugging and jumping out when opportunities present themselves. Obviously, this doesn't seem to be the special sauce for Wooster (yeah, couldn't help myself). So, for those of you who excel in Worcester, what's your tips and tricks for making her shine? I've only got 20 games in her so far, but I'm definitely looking to improve my track record with her in some Randoms this weekend, along with Flint, Kitakaze, and some others (yeah, I don't get it either). Any advice would be appreciated
  3. Straight up, what do you guys think of the mod and how are you liking it? Did you drop it and go back to reload/range/etc etc? I finally got my Legendary module upgrade for the Des Moines a few days ago and almost didn't even put it on because I was so not excited about losing approximately 3km of range. I decided to take it into a few randoms before trying my hand in Ranked without the extra range and MAN OH MAN IT WAS AWESOME! (paired with Propulsion Mod 2) I was lucky enough to get Shatter on my first map with all of it's juicy islands to play peek a boo with other ships and decided to be cheeky and stupid to bait situations favorable to my newfound nimbleness by going straight to B in the middle. I made sure to take a few shots here and there to get people's attention as well as allow myself to be spotted passing through some gaps. Suffice it to say my ploy worked. I didn't get every kill that blundered in after me but my increased agility allowed me a LOT of free damage while ships tried to chase me around corners. My actions ultimately lead to the enemy thoroughly throwing the game by continually coming into the middle to try and hunt me while my team slung lead down the alleys from a safe distance. It was by no means my highest kill or damage game in the DM by a long shot but my impact towards the outcome felt very satisfying. I then tried my hand in some Arms Race after that, juking and jiving in the buff caps with much success and even went back into Ranked (which I had temporarily abandoned out of frustration) to get me back into Rank 10 for the 4th or 5th time now. There were a few moments in Ranked where I could have been HE spamming a BB that I missed out on but otherwise the mod was a major boon. My direction changing agility definitely surprised a few people. I woe the day that I get stuck on Ocean without a friendly smoke to hide in but....I am for sure to keep testing this baby out. My biggest thing is that even though I play the DM a lot with it's hide and seek island humping gameplay style I am hyper aggressive to a fault and the mod for sure allowed me to nurture that aggressive nature with less BLAP punishment. What do you sirs and mams think about the mod? Tell me about why you love it or hate it!

    Got the Des moines

    After suffering through the USN cruiser line I finally got the Des Moines. It was around 11 pm so I only did 1 game for the super container (100 +50xp flags) and my first impression is good. I only did 17K damage before getting dev struck (yes I was behind an island) but I sunk an enemy DM for first blood and took around fair amount of health off a Worcester and bow tanked a solid amount of damage. Love the DM with the reload too. Are there any tips I should know about so I don’t make a fool of myself?

    Des Moines or Worcester?

    I currently have the Atlanta and am planning on getting the Salem with coal. I could get the Des Moines or the Worcester. Which would you get? DM seems solid and takes a lot of comparative abuse. Worcester looks like a lot of fun and I've been annihilated by both continually. What advice would you have? Thanks in advance.
