Ahoy skippers, what ships do you have lined up to do battle this weekend?

With ranked, randoms, and PvE action to choose from, everyone has a ship or flotilla they have ready to do battle.

Whether it is a destroyer, cruiser, battleship, carrier, or a combo, the ships you choose are for grinding XP, credits, or just going out there and giving the enemy a well placed shell or torpedo.

It's Friday, you have a fleet at your disposal, so which ones get the call to engage the enemy fleet?

Likely going to flip flop Midway and Des Moines most often. Might mess with some Tier VIII like Mass. or even Kidd. Maybe take Iowa for a spin. Lots of 'Murica for sure.

ANy ship ha requires me finish the directive fast. The ATL is my squishy ship of choice so far.

Then I'll would probably play my weekend game subnaucious,  That game is soooo addicting, I am almost done with it :(. Need to trigger the final stage of the end game component.  I say I have about 4 days left roughly... Its sill fun.

Then its back to my ATL. OR Ishokazie.

Aoba is kitted out and prepared for combat. HMS Leander is similarly ready in case Aoba has a really, really bad game.

I also have Ibuki in reserve in case I get an itch to play Ranked, and Zao if I want to play with the big boys.

Hooing to rank out this weekend. Missouri got me from rank 10 to 5 in a breeze, but under rank 5 the meta seems to be Musashi. Can tank so much and hand those large numbers right back to the enemy. Have had several 200k games, when theres only 6 enemies!

For Ranked Musashi, Fletcher, and Missouri.

For Randoms Harekaze, Lightning, Mogami, Zao, Gneisenau, Scharnhorst, PEF, Graf Spee, Aoba and Amagi. Just mainly been collecting Daily bonuses off the ships for leveling up captains, collecting some Free XP, Credits, and daily containers for coal.

May take my Royal Navy Premium ships out as well depending on how things are going. ( lol many people hate Duke of York, but with the proper 19 point Captain, AP shells in the guns, and good use of hydro the ship is a beast) other goals for the moment aside from getting my Gneisenau/ Scharnhorst/ PEF Captain to 19 points is to add points onto my IJN mid tier CA captains, BBs, and DDs for predicted future meta changes.

Used to use CVs on weekends a lot, but since the rework and 4 battles later I laid my CV fleet to rest so their memory would live on as one with honor and fun memories. Now I protect my teams not with fighters in the sky, but with flak guns and cat fighters on my surface ships. Weekends still are CV heavy after all.

( I also may be funneling large amounts of Elite Captain XP, Credits, and Free XP into my reserves for the day submarines are added. Lol Have enough I will be able hit those in full force with 11 point Captains for every sub tiers VI-X for 3 nations. :Smile_trollface: )

I haven't played my Hotlanta since 0.8.0 came out. How is she faring?

Here's my lineup for the weekend:

  • Kitakaze and Fletcher for Ranked
  • Irian and Charles Martel for grinding Randoms
  • Huanghe and Anshan to grind credits for current Directive

Same as every other day (I am boring). But I will try to use the dive bombers more (especially when top tier). Also take Saipan out for a spin a couple of times, it is growing on me (I never liked the old air sup RTS version)/

I must spend more time with t4 and 6 cvs, will see if I have the energy/time.

Its a good time to play the hotlanta Gneis. I still annoy BBs and thanks to the rework, CVs feed me planes... One thing for sure, having HP on planes and the interaction between the ATL  AA guns and CV plans is not ideal.

One thing for sure, I rather have the %25 more planes down because of more CV matches (new system). Then pray for an experience CV driver to fed me planes (old system).

  I really wasn't sure, going into it. Depends on what works!

 Today, there were 3 DD's in every pve match.  Makes playing a BB kind of pointless, unless you like low damage games or dodging torpedoes.

Cruisers it is!

 That means:

Myoko- just a few thou away from finishing it.  (now done!)

Cleveland.  Also very close to being done.

DM/Salem.  E=XP grinding.  I just used all 300k I had in stock to bump Myoko's captain up to 16 points, so...

Huang He.  missions.

Helena/Boise/Nueve de Julio.  to fight the onslaught of DD's filling the queue, of course!

New Orleans.  Just because I like it.

Roon and Schors, if I get around to it.

It's easier to dodge torpedoes than Battleship shells.



I need a shipload of credits for the Iowa so it looks like Missouri will be getting a workout. Full AA modules with full AA Captain of course. Bring me planes!

Hey just wanted to remind the WoWs Devs that Rank Is still Toxic Garbage. Yeah this new format of Arsenal Battle is cool but it doesn't take long to realize its a new coat of paint on the same rusted out ship wreck. I just lost a star and progress because A stupid DD decided it didn't want to live any more and Yolo'd guns blazing into the enemy. WG how the F Key can you keep putting on the same "Competitive" game mode season after season and not see how terrible it is. I mean you have to know something is wrong with it after 3 known season of declining player numbers. Heck you didn't even publish the player numbers from Season 10. Steel is not worth the crap Rank requires a captain to deal with.
