This is a serious question. What am I to do now? 

 

I own the Yamato and the Kurfurst.

 

I cant charge in, I cant snipe. I cant sit back and do nothing.

 

my accuracy is garbage at range, cruisers dodge on a dime, my AP shells seem to just hit cruisers for 1,000 damage a hit and thats if it doesn't bounce. DD's just run up to me without fear and torp wall me. My secondaries dont kill DD's at all and again, they have no fear from me.

 

If I get close enough, my yamato just gets citadeled instantly while my kurfurst lasts longer, but I cant ever hit a citadel on anything anymore. I dont know where to aim as the game has changed drastically since beta. 

 

What exactly is the surefire strategy to Battleshipping? How can I bring in the heavy damage numbers that im seeing people claim to get? Cause im only getting 60k on average before death. 

 

not to mention, im always the focus fire target.

 

Should I change to the other battleship shells for my kurfurst? The lower caliber guns.

Learn to aim, angle your armour and watch some videos, there's a time to sit back and a time to push up

"How to play a Battleship in 2018"

Use WASD to move and steer, mouse to look around and left-mouse to fire.

How are people pulling off these huge damage numbers when they are sitting back? How the hell do they pull that off when cruisers can dodge on a dime and you miss all your shells, or your shells decide it's hot outside and think its a good idea to take a dip in the pool?

The first can be attributed somewhat to good RNG. As for cruisers dodging, you need to learn how to predict their turns. When I'm in a cruiser and a BB is aiming at me, I tend to break off or turn in in the hopes of spoiling his shot. Only those who've guessed that I would pull such a move have landed significant hits (damage varies, obviously).

So its really not worth ever sniping then? So then I should just hold my fire until I start to brawl?

From what I've seen, the best way to play a battleship right now is to blame destroyers for all your problems and do nothing to help them.

Videos dont help. I need hands on but theres nothing I can do about it. I cant do anything right. I would go back to playing my World of Tanks but for some reason ,my system is really slow and wont start it anymore which is weird since this same system used to play it just fine. lol

 

but thats another thing for another day.

 

I just uninstalled so this thread is moot. I have no skill whatsoever and I cant seem to get anymore.

I just kinda snipe at the cruisers in yammy or wait for them to make a mistake so I can spank them. 

In Conqueror I find the nearest german to pick on, most likely the Kurfurst. :Smile_playing:

Maybe for the best, I guess when things are hard it is easier to just not do them.

Because they shoot at targets that are not paying attention to them, or are going to make an obvious turn. 

Besides the ability of aiming ofc.

OK, a video can give you a starting point. Then you try to apply it. If you can do well in WOT you can do very well in WOWS.

I can't tell if OP is trolling or just somehow got to tier X with way too few battles...

I've tried and tried for countless games, but it never seems to matter. I just die so quickly without doing any damage, and when I do shoot, my shells seem to just bounce or overpen and do nothing, but then I get shelled for 3/4 of my HP and Im looking at the screen confused.

 

*Shrug*

Well, you could do what most people do and play at the Mythical Mid-Range. This range (usually 10-15 KM) is a range where the enemy doesn't usually focus you, DDs can't get to you, and you are snugly in your fleet. However, at this range, you can usually hit ships and deal great damage.

It's hard...

But it works.

I say thats utter [edited]. Everything is moving in World of Warships and people dodge VERY easily. 

 

Where as World of Tanks, things are more stationary and aiming is alot easier. I can actually do well in World of Tanks with my Jagepanzer e-100, Maus, and IS-4, but this is not my first rage uninstall where I scream at my computer and look really confused cause of things that happen in World of Warships that makes no sense.

Only 65 battles and already to Yamato? Amazing.
First question, firing HE or AP?
Prediction is key. Unlike tanks that can actually stop suddenly and turn, ships can't. know when a ship as committed to a turn then fire.
Watch videos and learn how to angle. WoWs is a much more complicated game than WoT, and for some people who came from WoT to WoWs, it's a bit much for them.

I cant really predict which side they will turn, if they will speed up or slow down, or where my shells will decide to land.

Not much point in helping anymore, because you won't help yourself, enjoy your new endeavours, I guess if they prove to hard you can give up on that as well.

Your problem lies more with your ability to want to learn how, instead you want instant gratification on high damage games every game, without putting in any work to learn how.

Err..... WOT is quite a bit faster than WOWS. WOWS is WOT in slow motion. 

Well if you rage uninstall and scream lol.....then I would start with recommendations out side of video gaming lol....
