Question for a future podcast:

 

As someone who plays almost exclusively DD's, I have never had the ability to use a repair party. With the addition of repair party to the Khabarovsk, could you give any tips or advice on the best way to cycle damage control and repair? I hear people mention cycling these all the time on BB's and CA's.

With the addition of repair party to the Khabarovsk, could you give any tips or advice on the best way to cycle damage control and repair? I hear people mention cycling these all the time on BB's and CA's.

 

The reason that BB's and some CA's "cycle" their DCP's and RP's is that we're often on fire. The general rule of thumb for a BB is that if it's just one fire, don't put it out with DCP. However, because the refresh time on a DD's DCP is so low, the same rules don't apply for you.

 

Some numbers to keep in mind for repair party:

100% of Fire, flooding, and overpenetration damage is repairable

50% of Normal penetration damage is repairable

0-10% of citadel/direct torpedo damage is repairable

 

Good luck out there!

Loving the show, thanks as always.

 

Was listening to the most recent show, really like V''s questions segment at the end.  Would love a short call-in opportunity for some of your more interesting fans (like me).  

 

Btw, the tier 9 Ranked is an absolutely amazing idea.
