  1. My First Tier 10

    Well, looks like I finally made it! Snuck it in just hours before I hit my 1 year anniversary of playing the game for real, I finally got the tier 10 cruiser, Des Moines! And to emphasize this occasion, instead of a long drawn out brag and life story, I decided a song would be better. Because what the hell is the point of a brag thread if your brag is the same as everyone else? That is just uneventful. So, to the tune of Cecilia and the Satellite (because that is a good song and you know it): (custom lyrics are below) And no brag thread is complete without the pictures, so in the order they appear in the song which is the order of acquisition I ended up taking, here we go: Ok, rest of the stuff I think my threat should include since I got one shot at this: Best Moment: Pensacola in ranked. I really don't get still to this day why people hated tier 7 ranked, but to each there own. Worst Moment: Every game in Omaha. Please wargaming in the name of god fix this ship! And throw a bone to Emerald as well these 2 both need help badly. Highest Damage: 130k in New Orleans. I had a 139k game in Atago but I discredit it as legit cause the damage number came from someone insisting on ramming me, and in my book ramming is not legitimate unless it is bow on to bow on, so meh. Highest Number of Kills: Kraken in St. Louis. Yes, we all seal club a little here and there, mine just happened to come with a trophy one time. If I had to do something differently: Had a better tutorial to teach me actual USN cruiser mechanics. Would have been nice to know about auto-bounce before I started on Pensacola. Most Underestimated Thing About The Line: Pensacola. For real, it is not a ship that you can run around in and flank the enemy in with continuous kiting, it requires more bow-on tanking. And yes, I hope you get hit in the cit every time you go broadside in her, I think it was clear at tier 2 that if you go broadside you eat dirt. If you could change one thing: Give the USN cruisers some more respectable secondaries that have more damage-per-shell and a faster reload. The USN is the only line without torpedoes, and if you find your flank collapsed and you have to retreat, a little tool to help keep the DD's away would be nice. If you had to nerf one thing: Knock the AA down just a really small smidge. Like, maybe 2-3 dps per gun. IDK I felt like this was an important thing to reflect on and so I did. What, some days you got to be a mirror! Thoughts on the new line split: I am going to miss these guys at the tiers they are at, I really am. In some way, I feel like I have to say goodbye to them, because when I wake up the next day, they are not going to play the same. What are my current plans? Get Missouri - I am saving up every single bit of free Xp for it, so yeah, I am going to get it the hard way. Finish the other cruiser lines - Cruiser for life man, but USN first. Now that it is out of the way, got to cross some more finish lines Mid-Ship crisis - Right now I am just taking a bit of a break, cause why not? I just crossed the finish line dude, I need to rest. Anyway, this has been my un-eventful brag thread. Feel free to speak your mind on it. Edit: Cause I want to show the world that I am a USN cruiser player: Yes, they are all in my port. And I plan on getting Marblehead and going through ranked for Flint, and crossing any other bridge that I must to obtain every single USN cruiser that I can.
  2. Shchnores Zzzzz...

    Free xp'd to Kirov and have ground up to Shchors. It's a competitive ship and if played correctly the lack of armor isn't that much of a problem. Sadly the terrible terrible high tier meta on world of warships has now completely crept into level 7. For what ever reason most ships refuse to move vertically on the board often not straying far from their original spawn point. I see a lot of players let their ship sit afk for 5-10 minutes at the start of a game, and I don't blame them. During those initial minutes a bulk of players seem to want to chase their tail while things hopefully get softened up. Save your money, tier 7 is a let down and it's only getting worse. Zao > all
  3. Zao is Overpowered?

    Is Zao balanced? Is it overpowered? Is it waiting for Moscova to come and give it a fair fight? I've played up to Baltimore on USN cruisers, Aoba on IJN (also have ARP Myoko). From what I've read, Zao is easily citpened, which balances it against the other cruisers. I find this hard to believe, as I have been citpened from every angle in USN, while in Aoba and Myoko simply shifting the rudder seems to get me out of trouble 90% of the time. Does something change after Aoba? Maybe the IJN cruisers get wider/easier to cit? Zao drivers -- Is there any aspect of Zao that is a weakness in comparison to other cruisers, or at all? I see Zao rage threads, about "Zao's useless torpedo arcs", which leads me to believe it is the one cruiser that is worth this game's unholy grind. When you think of the other cruisers, strengths and weaknesses come to mind. Does Zao have it all? I think it does. long range artillery significant invisible artillery window (why?) extreme fire chance extreme accuracy (=citadels/fires) good maneuverability good speed (fastest tier X CA) good armor good aaa good torp belt high damage torps (fastest in game) Found some soft spots (Thanks Takeda992) 10k lower HP than Hindenberg/Des Moines slowest turrets of tier X cruisers (36 seconds) 99.99 buy now!
  4. Floptana - Tier XXX Battleflop

    Eyeing that Montana I see, yeah shes a good looking pile of pixels bro. Let me stop you right there bud, feel free to step up to the New Mexico. Heck I don't blame you if you want to get freaky with the Colorado. Please, please, please, don't go total tunnel vision and grind beyond that...you're gonna have a bad time. Montana is the saddest end game experience I've ever subjected myself to, anyone who says that Iowa or Montana are satisfying to unlock and play has ulterior motives. I know it's hard, click that Japan tab, start grinding yourself out a Zao...today only 99.99?
  5. I noticed on the Developer Q & As that the Japanese get access to the J7W Shinden as a late game naval fighter. This got me thinking about the late tier American aircraft. Will the Americans get a similar high performance fighter or will they stick with the F4U? What about other aircraft types? Seeing as how the Midway Class are the Tier 10 carriers for the US naval tree, I should think that they might be able to get use out of the experimental aircraft designed just for them and other late war American carriers. Many do not know of these aircraft as a majority were cancelled with the end of the war. Had the battle in the pacific continued, these aircraft may have very well been the next group of monsters shadowing the Pacific.

Depending on discussion and choice of aircraft, I will then do a more detailed look into the aircraft in question and its history. I had originally intended to do all of them, but I figured it would be easier to do work on popular opinion. So discuss and let me know what you think :honoring:
