My last Santa Crate purchase of the season

So I decided yesterday that I would buy one last set of Santa Crates.  There were no Premiums that I was really hoping for, and I mainly did it to try and get some more signals and camo.

Out of 20 large crates, I managed to get some ships, which is cool.  I got a Dunkerque, Molotov, Huanghe and a Kidd (w00t), along with 4k dubloons, 120 Frosty Fir, 30 Dragon, 15 Red Dragon, and 15 Wyvern.

All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with my earnings.  Of the Premiums, I think I'm most excited about the Kidd, but with French BBs incoming, the Dunkerque aught to be helpful.

 

Good luck to those of you still buying crates!

Congrats on the Kidd and Dunkerque. They are fun to play. I'd suggest if you like shooting down enemy lanes making the Kidd an AA destroyer. She is a beast! Enjoy all the other in-game goods you received as well and we will see you on the high seas.

Nice haul, congrats on the ships! Dunk is pretty fun, and Kidd is a little monster. Have fun with your new botes! :Smile_great:

Well I just picked up the Anshan with a 10 point captain in a Santa Box. Any of you guys running that ship and tips on upgrades and captain skills?

Would recommend watching some reviews. In short it has terrible turret rotation so I mine has the turret rotation mod. When I first got it I had the commander skills set up for a torpedo boat and didn't have much luck. I then changed to a gun boat skill set and have had much better luck. The ap is really good and the he isn't. It is not a fire hose. Also I prefer the longer range torps.

Yea I suck in DDs. I figure I'll play in coop till a get decent in it. It's the highest tier DD I have. Definitely don't want go into random, torp a friendly, get chat chewed and covered in salt.

I'm actually most excited about Kidd.  From what I've seen of it in both Random and Ranked, its a good ship.  Dunkerque should be interesting.  Generally speaking, I dont really like the look of ships with only forward turrets, but its not a huge deal.

I'll send you my email over a private message ok. I'm a big naval history fan and like reading all kinds of things about it. Had a nice library on books and planes. Donated about 50 of them to the public library in the little town I live in south of Houston.

The Kidd can be a beastly little DD, particularly against other DDs.  And while having only a single torp launcher is a bit of a pain, one still shouldn't discount their usefulness, if carefully aimed. 

And while some might complain about this tactic (i.e. people who complain about DDs being selfish if they use their own smoke offensively), the Kidd's best offensive weapon against larger ships is smoke shooting.  Of course, you really, really want to be aware of the location of potential radar ships when you do this.

Bought only a couple Santa crates last year .  This year bought a lot.  Great value if intention is to grind 19 point captains. Very happy at what I got.  No need to spend any money on the game until at the earliest next Santa crate season!   IMHO very well thought out by WOWs.
