Well dang.  In my Khaba I run like he11 from DM or Mino.  But I guess you didn't have a choice there.

Why did you switch to shooting the back turret briefly?

Khaba is easily the best Cruiser in the game :)

..and can be very frustrating to kill unless im in a Moskova or something with the shell velocity to actually hit it when it starts bombing around at 40kph.

Nicely done OP

Thanks.  Yeah the Moskva, Zao, Hindy and Montana are pretty much the only 4 ships in the game that present a real threat to properly played Khab.    

 

Speaking of Moskvas and Khabs......  I ran into this predicament the first season of CB lol

STAHP! I cant take it...stop picking on those poor Moskova's!

They need their lunch money back. :cap_cool:

I love the Moskova but it completely falls apart when it gets too close to things: massive cits on broadsides, turns like crap, and the gun turret traverse has no hope in keeping up with the best CA in the game (Khaba).

If you see me in my Moskova...be gentle.

Now that you can't take Umikaze or something similar into T10 fights, there is not a single thing I can think of in the game that is more humiliating than getting executed by a Khab's torpedoes. Nothing at all.

I mean, it's just, you are NOT supposed to let them get that close.

While those are all dangerous ships I've had more trouble with Minotaur and DM in my Khab.  Particularly if I bump into one around an island unexpectedly or get radared.  

I don't fear any DDs whatsoever although dueling another Khab can be difficult.

That was a rare encounter and it is not the norm.

 

9 out of 10 times khab got the short end of the stick trying to duel with any other competent cruisers.

You are correct.  Killing a full Health DM at close range without torps in a 40%HP DD isn't something you do everyday, hence why I made a video of it.  But I wouldn't go so far as to say its rare either.  I do stuff like that quite often in the Khab, just see some of my other vids.

You were shooting the flat broadside of the most fragile tier 10 cruiser in the game at super close range while he had to choose to either angle against you ... or another Des Moines. Also doesn't help that half of your ship can't be penetrated by HE.

Nice shooting, but that enemy DM basically potatoed pretty hard there.

DM isn't most fragile T10, that would be the Mino, but yeah he potatoed pretty hard either way lol

Yeah, but the Mino has smoke, and the Hindenburg has better DPM plus built in IFHE.

Oh dear god that was painful to watch.  Why the hell were they shooting AP at you?  And why did they reverse out broadside just to bounce more AP off you, when they easily could have just pulled forward and ran.  I don't even want to get into their...um..."questionable" positioning.

I was asking myself those same questions while it was happening.  When I spotted the first Moskva only 7K or so from me I was like "oh crap I'm dead", which is why I just charged straight at him, was hoping for a trade, and then the second one popped up.....        I don't know how those 2 managed to screw that up so bad, but never in a million years did I expect to actually kill both of them lol.

I wouldn't go as far as to say Hindy has better DPM given that DM can fire 9 rounds every 5.5 seconds base, whereas Hindy fires 12 of them every 10 seconds (8.8 with reload mod, but then DM outranges it). But Hindy can more effectively use that DPM due to it's greater effectiveness at long range and in open water. DM is exceptionally squishy when dealing with battleships and depends heavily on positioning and concealment behind islands for it's DPM ... but when it *can* effectively use that DPM, DM is an absolute monster.

But indeed, as you stated, DM is by far the squishiest ship simply because it has very little means to keep itself safe, unlike Mino. I personally really wish that DM would get the same 30mm upper belt that Hindy and Zao has. It would become much much more comfortable to play if it had any chance to angle against AP fire.

Given they were both rentals I wouldn't be surprised if those two players had never played the Moskva before....but that still doesn't excuse their questionable decision making.

Was very nearly for naught, though. Your friendly DM and you were double-struck a little later by another Khab.

Still, can’t argue success. Your side did win the game, albeit mainly because multiple team mates on the other side couldn’t do basic maths and decided that since they had two caps to one, they would overtake on points, despite being more than double the distance to 1000pts. So they ran away instead of killing the last CA on your side. Would have been an epic comeback.

Um.... no.    I killed their Khab before I killed the DM as you can see in the clip.   One of your teammates did yolo in and get us later on, but it wasn't a Khab and it was too late to save the game.
