Hello, fellow players. How are you?

It has been a few days since I finished the 3rd Directive of Update 0.9.2. I started Monday, and closed 4 missions, but had to stop playing to attend to important concerns (COVID preparations and all), giving me time to finish the minimum number of missions just last Wednesday. I got the Tier VI European DD, but I have not yet explored it. I don't want to waste my time on bland ships.

One of the missions was to score 1,200 main battery hits. I anticipated this would be really fun, dakka dakka brrrt brrrt pew pew and all that as I thought it would be a quick run—but with each Coop battle having 4 Smolensks, 2 Harugumos, and 2 Des Moines, I decided to go back to lower tiers and settled to playing Chapayev. 

I'm grinding the Russian cruiser line now, in anticipation of the announced changes, and Chapayev has been really fun to play. I recently unlocked Donskoi, and played random battles with it to reach Hull B, but I think Chapayev is more enjoyable despite the lower tier guns and the absence of a Repair Party. I also get to score incapacitations and fires more often with Chapayev than with Dmitri.

For three consecutive coop battles I saw Friesland players lamenting the absence of enemy aircraft carriers. I thought they were kidding until I learned there was that mission to destroy a number of enemy aircraft using European ships at Tier VIII and above. The next coop battle I entered (I clicked Battle On!), there was a Kaga (surprise!), but no more Friesland or any European DD player.

A mission in the previous directive required scoring 2,250,000 potential damage in a single battle, so I took Yamato out for another Ranked Battle. I initially thought of taking out Kremlin, but since I was grinding for the unique upgrade, the choice was easy. I scored 3,170,410 potential damage trading blows with Tier X ships—including a citadel hit on an unsuspectng CV!—but it felt like being a masochist. Just let my wife spank me for potential damage in bed.

Play time for the rest of the week was mainly to get that unique upgrade for Yamato and also grinding the Donkey. That 12 km radar range is sweet and I've used it often to hit DDs sitting still either in smoke or beside the beach. However, like a real donkey, it is difficult to maneuver.

Moreover, I am wondering if mid or long range kiting is the only viable way to play it in PvP. In PvE, I can brawl with some bot BBs and even torpedo them to the bottom. The main battery guns are somewhat not that comfortable compared to Chapayev, but that could be due to me not offering the required sacrifice of a virgin to Almighty RNG. I guess I'll learn more in the coming days. Moskva is still 179,000 XP away.

The next directive is just around the corner. Looks like it will be another milk run. 

Stay safe and stay home. And for Christ's sake, wash your hands like you've just handled chili and are off for a wank!

Chap is a fun ship. I still have mine with a 19 pt captain. Don is a fun ship too. Playstyle is similar. It's a kiter. I still have mine with a 19 pt capt. Probably my favorite of the RU line as it's a little, and I mean little more tanky than chap.

I agree! Both are fun to play.
