this one was a bit meh 

 

not sure if I would ever take PT on a BB

He's not wrong in that there's literally no other T1 skill that's viable for the Hood.  Reduced AP autobounce and lower fuze arm time means they're better at wrecking light ships that normal battleships would switch to HE to effectively deal with, which rules out Expert Loader.  Over half of the T1 skills are carrier-related as well, and Direction Center for Catapult Aircraft is meaningless since Hood doesn't have a catapult.  Incoming Fire Alert is worthless for a BB - which shouldn't be camping at a distance where it's effective and shouldn't be relying on that to angle against incoming fire (largely because it's too slow).

 

Preventative Maintenance is the only other viable option, but BB turrets are very hard to knock out anyways and the skill doesn't affect AA/secondary guns.

I also noticed that over half (all but 2 - too lazy to count and do math @tm) of the whine threads he snipped are from the NA forums.  Shows a lot about what the rest of the worldwide WoWS community thinks about this place...

It is one of the more active forums.

Have you seen the asia forums? It is quite dead in there.

It lacked the Torpedobeats, but other than that it was on point as usual.

Taking PM means I don't have to use the primary armament survivability ship upgrade and I can instead have the auxiliary armament survivability upgrade to make it harder for the UP rockets to get knocked out.

 

I use PM on pretty much all of my ships except for RN and RU cruisers where they have the highest benefit from PT, imo.

Same. 

 

I don't see much value in taking PT on any BB, unless you have terrible situational awareness.

I would switch the Auxiliary Survivability for the Magazine Modification though if you plan to save those flags. Last match a Hood detonated, I sense something odd on her.

He left out how you can EASILY rip another BB for 13k by smashing their superstructure....

He has the exact same complaint I have with the Hood, that I even commented on in Nozoup's thread.

What the heck is up with all of Hood unused space?  This thing has room for another turret, a catapult and more AA batteries, and yet...

The Tea Room. 

 

They can fit a tea room inside a Q turret.  Or mount a catapult on top of the tea room.  They can even use the plane to ship in more tea.  Do I have to think of everything for these designers?

I found it handy for stealth ships like Concealment build NC, it's good to know when to shut your guns off and disappear. 1 or 2 ships targeting you, no big deal, 7 ships targeting you, well time to cloak and heal
