This is partly a fun thread and a strategy thread. The idea is to posit questions of difficult WoWs or dueling situations and have people feedback what they would do. It is my request that we keep this an ego-free, bashing-free, showing-off-my-giant...-pinky-toe-free zone. While some of you might think certain situations aren't that hard, you don't need to be boasting about how incredible you are that its ezpz for you. We will try to give obvious objectively under-dog problems. 
 

Answer any you like. Posit new questions as you feel like. 

 

Let's say you had to go duel a Yamato in a Bismarck as you start heading toward a cap.  How would you do it? How would you go about it? 

T8 vs T10

 

Let's say you had to take down 2 or 3 T4 BBs in midgame in a Caledon. Your team is slightly losing in points/ships down. How would you do it? 

T3 CA vs 3x T4 BBs

Hypotheticals like this don't work, since you could run into the same general situation multiple times yet each scenario would be vastly different.

At first glance, in the second scenario, I'm thinking 9 times out of 10, you just die. In any other tier 3 cruiser, I might have a hope of kiting and lighting fires, but with the Caledon, that's not even an option. Taking down 3 battleships is going to be a long, long process and while tier 4 BB's aren't known for their accuracy, they get too many rolls of the die. 

 

The 6km torpedo range is tough, but a possible option if you're on a map with lots of islands and the battleship players are stupid enough to hug them.

I was definitely thinking if it was an island map it would be better for sneaking around to do it. I think Caledon in this case wants to be near islands, kinda in the middle, though being in the middle is dangerous.

In answering the questions (even if they're not perfect) you provide information that is useful to some players. How wonderful is that?

Or, they make the bad decision because what I said doesn't apply to their situation.

I would try to edge in closer and closer without giving my my bow directly in the hope that RNGesus or bad aim would let me live long enough to ram him.

Kite and dodge and be patient.  Hope that none of the T4 BBs are a Nikolai and count on dispersion to let you win.

Hmm. You can make it more general, I'm sure. Not everything has to be so specific.

 

The general specific?

I've actually considered that, though its pretty hard to get that close.  

A conceptual win is also to use Tirpitz, hide behind islands to cover the distance into 4-6km, then launch some torpedoes. And god aim in Tipitz you can citadel Yamato. Yamato won't have enough time to chunk down your health in tirpitz.
