    Looking for a typhoon/hurricane clan for cb

    Armory Containers, worth it or not?

    The russian collection is worth it in some parts if you only need a few duplicates for super containers. Buy in small quantity though since you don't want to waste coal. Also, check if you would rather have a ship. Got Salem and love her to death.
  3. Greetings all. After way too long of a rest I am once again looking for a clan to play competitive with. Unfortunately this will come with the following asterisks: - due to shift duty in retail I have varying working hours - I am a bit rusty after a bit of a pause - resources are there, all the new t10s not yet What you will get: This guy: wows-numbers.com/de/player/500353925,dCK_Ad_Hominem/ I have spent the first three seasons with the original kktm to quite some extend. The stint with Paraz occurred when I changed jobs and was thus short lived - to my great misfortune. Who I am: -32yo German guy who is fluent in English - dd unicum - tactical understanding - some command experience - very social guy who tries to be the social glue. What I expect: - a clan with a respectable number of competitive veterans - at least one unicum level cv player - lash restrictions (a regular training schedule is impossible for me to join) - good natured humour In case there are any questions I will try to answer asap. Much regards, Ad

    Well. You may be right on the last part, it was just my subjective opinion I was expressing. It is still less stressful to deal with one dd than potentially running into 3. So you can be a bit more at ease. Still a valid point though ^^.

    Well it depends a fair bit. I for one think that 3dds per side should be the maximum. Otherwise dds will just get into their own way since most guys don't communicate or read the game well. And then the wasting of torps begins since 2 are torping the same target and thus mitigating each others damage output. I like 2 per side. It makes them more valuable and enforces more team play while reducing the stress load for everyone.

    Few clarification required

    Well mate, if the dd you're playing gets nuked to half hp in the first minute of the match because the cv thinks he doesn't like you and all your maneuvering is in vain... then you will know why people hate cv. Also keep in mind they can't detonate, can almost outrun cruisers, have ridiculously good concealment for their size, extinguish fires in 5s and - at tier 10 - will bounce any shell hitting the deck, even yamato shells, which is just completely bizarre. I know, it's a game yadayada, but I don't believe any sort of deck armor will stop a 1.5 ton shell coming in at just sub sonic speed - if we're generous. As for wr: It does tell you a lot. Back in the day unicum cv players could have 80% win rates. Any player beyond 55% is one you can Generally rely on. It's as simple as this. Especially since this wr implies a great deal of game knowledge.

    Unfairly judging other players

    Very few trends apply. Mostly go by positioning, map awareness and knowledge. Shooting your guns immediately? Abandoning your flank without reason? Launching your Donskoi torps at a target 16km away? Yep, those guys are relegated to cannon fodder and won't be counted on. Similarly I have general distrust of people who play cancer ships (smol, conqueror, kutuzov, cv). Those are guys who like winning, but don't like playing, at least to me. Thus those are also the guys getting rather salty when things don't go their way and are quick to throw insults around. Trust factors: - likeable forumite - member of a good clan - communicates well - polite banter

    This CB season's gotta be the worst one ever

    While I like the general thought, here is the issue: that one dd may as well account for dead weight with the cv around and having to bring a ship that will just frustrate anyone who has to play it might be a bit bad. I would still favor this over the current situation though. In the first 3 seasons almost any ship was viable, until radar Yueyang became the go to. And boy was this fun to play for the most part. Damn I miss these days. .. so many great memories.

    Untold stories of Wows

    I would expect a massive disconnect to be the issue. DDs are not the prime damage dealers to begin with and with a torpedo boat the chances are even slimmer (except for shima). Still, unless the guy has a replay of it the stats are all we will ever have. Nice find.

    This CB season's gotta be the worst one ever

    Yeah. .... making both dds and bbs not only irrelevant but detrimental. .. I for one was hoping to get back into clan battles soon, but even though I own a Stalingrad, I doubt it would be that much fun. And I couldn't for the life of me figure out which dd would actually work in these surroundings. Maybe a range build Haru for the memes, if it were to utilize carrier spotting, but miss me with the Halland. Will never be able to use her guns, torps won't matter that much, but hey, at least some aa to prevent instant death. I'm looking forward to what you guys will say a week from now. Thanks for all the feedback to the thread.

    12.6 Stalingrads, completely normal phenomenon

    Play her and you will see that she is far from being the be all end all. The guns are great if you her to use ap. But she loses the dpm battle against any other cruiser rather badly. Strong, but in no way broken. Especially since it is very difficult to disengage.

    A business can discount its items any way it sees fit. And at least here in Germany refunding something is only legally binding for online delivery goods - and comes with a 14 day time limit. Yes it sucks for those who bought it, but you have no legal right to complain imo. And this is coming from a guy whose only bought prem camo is on Yueyang.

    Is it time to nerf radar?

    1. Also, no. Getting radared also means that the enemy knows where to expect torps from. And torp reload is, on average, quite on par with radar cooldown. Yes, one can bait a radar, but it's not like radar cruisers die often after using it and failing to kill the dd. It also means torping from further away, which increases gaps between the torps and lowers hit probability. 2. Ideally yes, but if you're going up against multiple your team will also lack quite a bit of spotting since the average dd won't want to run that gauntlet. So saying "just take them out one by one" also isn't that good of an argument, especially considering the amount of map control/intel a heavy radar setup will get.

    Is it time to nerf radar?

    Um. Yes you can. And it doesn't have to be Stalingrad either, pushed around quite a number of folks in Salem and Missouri. Oh and the radar makes you more independent since you can do your own dd spotting. This part of your argument doesn't hold water. The second part is mostly true, though going up against 4 radars isn't much of a challenge and more of a relegation to near complete irrelevance - provided those cruisers know what they are doing. As Paracelsus said: The dose makes the poison.

    Dear unicorns, what happened here cz I'm lost for words...

    Pretty hard to point out, but my guess would be that you could have maybe been more patient/aware of enemy dd presence. More than a third of your damage was inflicted on enemy dds of the same or higher tier, so either you were too aggressive or the enemy team simply had the better team play. Still, swallow your anger and just keep going. Every dd unicum has those games as well where your torps just won't land or your team folds way too quickly or you just have bad luck.
