"It needs Nerf"

Every time I see someone posting this "Ship needs a Nerf" or "This Ship is overpowered" it really makes me wonder if anyone really, really tries to play. And do not get me wrong I have gotten upset over changes and then apologized for sounding like a 6mth old missing its nip, but I manned-up to it! But by all the gods of the seven seas it does seem that no one tries first!

When I first and I dealt with my first loss from a DD setting in smoke, I did not jump on to the forum and say SMOKE NEED TO BE CHANGED!!, I came on the forum and found post that said "shoot torpedoes into the smoke", "aim for where you see them shooting from" did it always work? No, but still why ask for a Nerf for a game I had just started???

The first time I face an Atlanta, it scared to salt water out of me, until I came to the forums (and wiki) and found out TO BEAT IT! But I did not ask for the Atlanta to be NERF!! By Neptune's Beard even when I have played other online games (World of Warcraft, Ultima Online, Guild Wars, GW2, Age of Conan, etc.) and found something I could not beat I did not ask for a Nerf!!

I spent 8 yrs in the real USN, I have seen men come home in body bags, waves higher than the bridge of my ship, fought fires on board, worked 12-18 hours days, got drunk and chased a lot of women in many a port. So I learn in those eight years if you got knock down you got back and figured out to beat it and TRY AGAIN! 

Now every other post seems to be nerf this and change this, does anyone try anymore or do they just cry for their nip?  And I am sure some answer with this with the normal "well look at your WTR, you do not know anything" to answer them, blow out your bilge pipe!

Well there is my 2 cents worth this morning, and I will get off my soap box.

That's true most of the time. WG isn't complete imbeciles, and most of the time there's logic behind their ships' designs. But in few rare cases IT REALLY NEED TO BE NERFED. HARD. I'm talking about ships almost without counterplays, especially the Belfast.

I agree the Belfast is a pain, my Perth knows it for sure. But just feel I need to beat it, I know there is a way and I can do it!

There's plenty of ways to counter Belfast.  Sure, she makes you change your tactics.  It is a challenge to overcome.

Agreed, just I get annoyed when someone can do equally well as others, but without using ANY skill at all.  Luckily, there isn't too much of that in WoWS right now!

OP there are two kind of players:

- good players, and they can counter any thing they face, they know how to work around smoke and how to counter smoke.

 

- normal and casual players, they cant counter anything they face, for them smoke is like a wall. 

 

WG balance the game for normal/casual players because they are the mojority of the player base. This happens in every game.

Nope I am saying, instead of asking for Nerfs. We should learn to beat it - the ship, the smoke, etc.

Before having a fit on the forums

I recently opened up a super container and got the Marblehead. I was kinda disappointed,hoping for the Okhotnik. Played it and lost the first 2 games,then I started to see something in the ship. Fast,turns on a dime, lobs shells over mountains and islands with no problem, guns all over the ship,hell they even have em in the galleys & heads (wink),fast reload. It was like a cloud lifting,,, I have some great premy OP ships,Gremy,Fujin,but IMHO this ship is just the total package! OP? well ,maybe,,, yea. 72% win rate,25 battles,32 ships destroyed.. in a 1923 scout CA. In tier 5/6 I almost feel like a bully.Playes totally different than the Murmansk. So I'm loving this 1923 US OP ship. Now all WG needs to do is give me smoke & sonar,,Hint Hint

Yes nerf the Belfast, adding a heal and Torps should be just about right

Seriously? No counter plays? :cap_haloween:

 

How about smoke is a torpedo magnet?

Use scout planes, watch firing from smoke, fire at ship in smoke. Using this technique I citadel'd a Minotaur this week. Not difficult to hit the ship, just requires practice.

Random fire into the smoke - their smoke clouds are not as long as a DD's. 

Know when they are about to emerge from smoke and be ready for them. 

 

I can attest a Belfast dies very quickly under accurate fire from red ships. Guaranteed. 

 

In conclusion, there are counterplays that do not involve radar, hydro or other magic. If you have radar, you can kill her quite easily. The upcoming "system wide" firing from smoke changes will require you only to get with about 6km of the Belfast she fires, which will light her up for twenty seconds. If your team can't kill her in that amount of time, maybe you should all take up checkers? :fish_glass:

The problem is everyone keeps looking for the wrong thing to be nerfed.  Balance could be much better if they just focus'd on the correct things.

 

BB's... "IT"  Needs Nerfed because it hurts them.

CA's... "IT"  Needs Nerfed because it hurts them.

CL's... "IT"  Needs Nerfed because it hurts them.

DD's... "IT"  Needs Nerfed because it hurts them.

CV's....  "IT"  Needs Nerfed because it hurts them.

 

Every class is damaged.. attacked.. by "IT"

 

Every new ship line gets "IT".. And yet... WG keeps adding "IT" to the game.

Between. Bombs.. Torpedo's, Main Guns, Secondary Guns, HE, AP, Fire's, Floods, Detonations, "IT", Radar, Hydro, AA, Smoke...

 

Just last night.. i played 3 games.. all 3 games "IT" was always there.. It was all over the place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please.  Join the fight against Ship Corrosion.  Salt Water is very damaging.

In the 14 years I have been playing online games starting with Star Wars Galaxies through at least 16 other games (some long term, some not so much), I cannot recall a single time I have ever openly called for a Nerf on any character/class/ship/vehicle/what-have-you.  That does not mean, however, that there were not characters/classes/ships/vehicles/what-have-yous in any of those games that were not in serious need of a visit from the nerf bat.
