The tell of the Zao's

Well it's early Saturday morning, only 4500 players on. I dress out one of my favorite ships, the Zao, hit battle. It begins a bit slow as usual with everyone figuring out their plans. I figure out how to best support the team and begin engaging an Iowa, Hindenburg, and Amagi. Fires on all three so I switch to AP for the Hindenburg and down he goes! I'm thinking its going to be a great game!!! Re-establish fires on Amagi and Iowa. The damage counter is clicking away. All is well in the world of Zao. Sure I see the other teams ships on the mini map and they are engaged. I see a Kabab 7k and engage. I am almost full health and it looks good. Then from nowhere I am deleted from over 20k away by their Yamato :-(  I did 164K when the smoke clears and we end up losing. So are the woes of WOWs.

 

I move on this time to my Yamato, dress it out and hit battle. As we are deciding which caps to go for the enemy team appear on the horizon. I had been swinging Yamato around to point her into the cap. From behind a smoke cloud I receive HE hits and begin burning. One fire, two fires and before I can hit DC a third fire. I put them out and use my heal. The smoke begins to clear and low and behold a Zao and two DD's show up, but not for long as I see one of the DD's start smoking them again. I have time for one volley before they all three disappear once again. I select the Zao and just as she disappears into the smoke I fire. I can't see the hits but the game tells me that we sunk an enemy cruiser, the Zao is gone.

 

The moral of the stories, Yamato deletes cruisers! I bet you already knew that didn't you. Oh and we won this one.

 

Have fun and enjoy the game!!

I keep hearing about players avoiding tier IX and X battles because they are is too cautious and predictable; actually I've had some of my best battles there much like yours.

 

Fine work there, makes me want to grind to both the Zao and Yamato a bit faster... I'll get there!

Always fun to be in my Roon and then suddenly from nowhere, gigantic citadel hit from 20km away.

They are great and getting there isn't a bad grind and the preceding ships are al pretty fun too. Even Izumo, once upgraded is a good ship. Enjoy and have fun.
