I've tried. I want to be a good CA driver. Why I don't know. My long suffering wife bought me the mighty Shiny Horse for a late Christmas gift, and that should have fixed me, as she goes great with a knuckle dragging, brawling, Yoloing, "Witness me!!!" "Banzai!!" Leeroy Jenkins type like me....

 

But then those goofy French CAs came out.... Tier 1 through 7? Yawn... wait...what is this at 8? Oh myyyy... I needed a Charles Martel right the :etc_swear: now. The Grind begins...and still goes on. :( I'm about 65k XP from her...and I'm not sure my sanity can take it. I just can't stay in the back and sling HP like a good CA should. I try and back up my DDs, push caps, etc....and get pummeled. Yeah, I asked for it. 

 

Burn gold you say and get it over with? Yeah... I'm broke, and even if I did have it, I'm told myself I wouldn't "cheat." The hell of it is, I know the Martel, while a fine ship, is just more of the same. 

 

But my ship A.D.D. won't let me sleep. 

 

Not salty or anything...but I had to vent. 

 

Thanks. Davos :cap_haloween:

I've been working to the Martel since they came out, taking sometimes week long breaks to cool off due to losing patients with sitting in the back. But the Algiere is good, personally since I took the incoming fire alert skill (since they're so fragile) I've noticed a large increase in survivability, so you might want to invest in this cheap skill. 
I played the Martel back on the closed beta, it was worth it for the grind. I have no interest in going past the Martel though.

Madness.

Madness in WoWS - well that's probably rampant.

I know many will say I'm mad, lol.

 "Come in Pardner, sidle up to the bar here, what be your kind of madness, we got 'em all."

Yeah we all thru a period of venting and so on. Just a natural progression of sorts when you play or be played.  Tis the nature of the beast.  Just listen to your favorite music and maybe it will calm things down.

I like to play this while I battle one...over and over....

Oh @Sir_Davos_Seaworth I totally feel your pain. Not the grinding of the French line, I'm don't even care about the Le French Baguettes. But the urge to get close and brawl is very strong in the Sinksalot Fleet. I love being a bully in my Scharnhorst and Tirpitz, pushing in to support my DDs while driving my Missouri. Getting close in my destroyers to mess up camping ships with surprise flash floods. 

But than I grab my cruisers, the ones with out smoke, and now I have to stay at range or employ cover. The sail around slinging shell from max range isn't that fun to me. Unless its Khab or Udaloi than its required. However when I do keep the enemy outside my detection range and keep the guns ringing I tend to get my best results. 

My advice for when you're sailing your long range Fire starters is stop playing the epic battle music and put on some easy listening tunes. Relax a bit and embrace the slow pace of burning your enemies to the water line. 

Good luck on the grind.

Dude I dont know w.t.f you are smoking but Charles Martel is the best tech tree tier 8 cruiser in the game, even better than Mogami, and from what I remember the Algerie wasnt that bad bad either (a bit undergunned).

 

If you have issues with either of these, then its definitely not the ships fault.

Reading is fun and fundamental!  But yeah its my fault for trying to jam a square peg into a round hole. Still want a Martel however...

If you don't like the HE spamming play style and consider the Algerie to be boring, then I really have to wonder what you see in the rest of the line, as it's honestly just more of the same.

Dammit Spock! Stop trying to logical about emotional attachment to cyber ships! 

 

That being said, I started my Sunday with a heck of game... Photobucket has my stuff locked down, but you have to trust me when I say I won a brawl between two hot French girls... Algerie vs Martel...  The AP got loaded, and I ended up with three cits on her, one up the stern. (LEWD !!!) Then a Simms shot me in the back, and then we lost. :Smile_sad: 

 

Edit: Suck it Photobucket!
