    Smolensk or Jean Bart?

    Smolensk is fun but the plating rework will hit it hard, so it will be way more punished by enemies. So fun may last shorter then. JB is good at making credits, and can be fun. The IFJE rework will make it burn less, but with the plating changes cruisers will be able to bow tank you, so switching to HE will be even more necessary.
  2. Just this !!! I have now 2 millions free XP and I refuse to pay for those overpriced ships in free XP ...

    Smaland cost

    Cool, I have 2 million free xp. Now I know I will ... Certainly never spend them on this totally overpriced ship (and I guess Hayate will be the same price). Woohoo, I will remain a millionaire !!
  4. The problem is not the size of the squadron, the problem is the constant attacks that prevent you to focus on playing the game. Before the rework, once the CV attacked you, you knew that you had around 2 minutes free from planes because the squadrons had to return to the CV, rearm and then take off (which took time when they were numerous). And you could use that interval to play your ship, try to reposition, etc... Now, a squadron can attack you 1, 2 or 3 times in a row and when the CV recalls it, planes are back less than 30 seconds later and the circus restarts. And it never ends ... You can't play your ship, you have to constantly care about those planes. That is why people hate the CV rework. In the old version, a CV could murder you in 1 attack, but it was either a fast death or you didn't have to care for planes for 2 minutes, and you had the panick button to delay the inevitable. Now, you are constatly harassed by planes, to the point that you can't try to play your ship. This is just death by a thousand cuts and masochism isn't a widespread tendency ... This is why the rework is a fail, and the OP proposal is not a solution ...
  5. For now, only 1 million to yest the torpedo upgrade on 2 ships. I dismounted all my AA upgrades, sold a good part of them and will wait for a 50% discount to buy ew ones for all my ships.

    New upgrades, where are you using them?

    Torp mod will go on all my torpedo boats, for DD with good AA, I don't know if I will put the AA mod instead. I'm gonna try it too on Italian cruisers. Good idea for turret rotation on IJN cruisers. What would you put on Cv for slot 3 now ??

    LOL russian cruisers split coming next

    Hey !! Don't make fun of Sturmoviks TB, a land base TB version existed (Il-2T, if I remember correctly). So that will be the most realistic part of that coming line...

    Just LOL !!! Your post is ridiculous on so many levels !!! This is not a simulation, it's a game. If the team can only count on 1 class to not only counter but simply deal with another one, it is not a problem of strategy, this is just bad game design. If DD are supposed to only counter SM, then WG should remove smoke & Engine boost and give them sonar. And if you are having funning escorting a BB and doing nothing but screening the BB so that he can have a good gamesafe from SM, man your life clearly is lacking fun !! The game was designed with 4 classes in mind ; TBH, 3 in fact at the beginning, and since all that time the 4th is still posing problem. You can't just throw a new class in the game without rethinking the interactions between all classes. This is just the worst !! Why ? What can make you think WG will implement such a rule on the MM ? They never say such a thing ... Are you guaranted to fight cruisers when you play BB, or DD when you play cruiser ? And why can't you see that these few words from you are just the proof that with SM, class balance is simply totally messed up ??
  11. Lol, I was thinking yesterday that I could use my coal to buy Jean Bart. Now I'm sure I will do it. Moreover, reading WG saying "we remove these ships from shop, they may come back later" is always so funny. Who even believe them anymore ??

    From my experience on the test server, SM have the upper hand on DD in the beginning of the match as they outspot them and even if DD see rhem, it is very dangerous to grenade them, enemy team will shred you as you will be spotted and exposed to their fire. But the situation changes as the game goes on. In middle or end game, it is much harder for SM to get proper support, so they must avoid at all cost being detected or DD will quickly send them back to port without taking a dent. The real problem is : how can a team deal with SM if it loses all its DD in the first minutes of the game, or worse if there are no DD in the game ??
  13. Concerning the change on tume between attacks for T10 CV, am I the only one who find it strange to happen now ? If attacks of T10 CV now have a 9 s interval, what is the point of the coming AA upgrade on slot 3 ? The only ships that could use it were DDs as it allows them to focus AA fire more often with it, but as the priority sector cooldown is 10 s, a 9 s interval between plane attacks means that this upgrade is no longer necessary ...

    Huge DD nerf might be coming for patch 0.9.1

    Very modest ?? Man you will need a microscope to notice them : +1kts on torpedo speed and -3 or 4 s on torpedo reload ...
