Since 6.3, Sims is basically unplayable. 

 

The gun bloom, due to its long main gun range, is downright punitive considering the 5"/38 arcs make most of that range useless. 

 

It's only really useful as a torp spammer now, with those fast reloading water mines. 

 

Anyone with a brain won't buy the Sims.

When was Sims even remotely playable before OWSF was gone. To hit something you had to be in visual range anyways since she's best at fighting for caps.

 

So really what changed for the ship. You were always spotted anyways when you opened up with guns. And trying to stealth fire with that ship? If you could, only ships you could hit with those guns were brain dead battleships.

 

So really? Why all the moaning and wailing. And please realize I've had the Sims since it was first offered.

I am gonna cash in my doubloons for FXP, but still gonna be short of the Nelson.

Currently got 200 for the Corgi event. Might trade them in since 200 really does squat anyways.

Same basic position, got like 1500 from event winnings so I might as well accelerate my path to the Nelson.  Course then we will see I am not tempted to just buy myself the rest of the way lol.

It was in the OP and thus relevant to comment on.

Don't play stupid. You know damm well the issues that OWSF removal has caused 5"/38 armed DDs. It's been spelled out a hundred times. 

 

If I was not on mobile I would just copy/paste one of the dozens of write-ups on the subject, preferably from a thread that you commented on.

Also Sums is still hilariously awesome at cap contests. People that complain about gun bloom "ruining the ship" don't play it right.

Only one it really changed was Gearing. Rest really couldn't do it very well. They are KNIFE FIGHTERS.

 

So spare me the self righteous bull.

The gun arc change really hurt the Sims. Before that it was a beast to be feared.

There was no gun arc change. What changed was the maneuverability of enemy BBs.

 

And one thing that really hurt Sims was the huge smoke nerf, when they pretty much halved the duration and the number of charges :) But this has been so long ago, same with the change mentioned in the previous paragraph.

So folks would spend skill points on smoke and consumable upgrades in the captain tree.

Was retraining a Captain to put on Farragut , 9 points.

 

I put him on Sims but forgot to actually select any skills (oops) making him 0 points for this tier 8 battle I got in.

 

Long story short I ended up with 2200 base XP and over 500k credits  (like 450 was profit) and getting all the 20k captain XP I needed.

 

Consider Sims the best  20ish bucks I've spent in wows. My favorite DD 'dog fighter' tier for tier. Even the Sea Mines are really useful for spamming smoke with the really short reload.

If they buffed the range of 5.5km torpedoes to 6.5 (7 ideally) I would be soooo happy

I love my sims, and it was a steal for $17.xx in July. 

 

I wanted a US DD trainer, but I didn't think I'd like it all that much because I really dont do well with farragut or mahan even though my nicholas game is good.  I play it like i play nich and i rock with sims.   I've seen some of my highest outright base xp games in sims.  

 

Wish I could mount my smoke module on her, but I would lose AA range.

I play Sims the same as I did before the mechanic change, she plays the same today as she did then. She's just fine.
