    What do I do with crowns?

    Nothing as of now, which is a bit sad. I mean I could even accept if you could buy flags for them even if they cost something like 10 flags for 50 crowns.

    Exeter's Last Stand pt 3 - borked?

    Since it is damage caused by fire and not number of fires they probably just insta repaired and the damage is so small it barely shows up on the progress bar.

    old WoWs music

    This is something that is often overlooked even by myself since I tend to listen to a lot of podcasts when I play, but this game does have some really nice soundtracks.

    I'm not convinced the gimmicks of the MN line makes it easier per se. As far as gimmicks go, the speed boost in particular is just not that great, and I would much rather the Frenchies had slightly higher base speed instead of relying on a gimmick to go sonic fast for 3 minutes. Reload booster is a neat idea, but again, much rather have a good to decent base reload instead. So in that sense the IJN line is more comfortable. Good stealth overall, some nice armor on tier 5-7 and arguably 10 and really nice guns. But I don't disagree that the French line is bad for a new player.

    Well kind of. From tier 5 they are fast if you use your speed boost correctly otherwise they are sometimes sluggish or nothing special. For gunpower they are somewhere in between the IJN and US cruisers with pretty comfortable gunnery overall. Decent torps are a nice complement, and the gimmicky reload booster starting from tier 8 can really push out some nice damage. But as domen says the Japanese or US line is often a better starting point as they rely purely on good old fashion gun-armor-stealth combo without any gimmicks (apart from radar).

    Cruisers - How to?

    EM means you can keep your guns on target even when manuvering. And it is a great quality of life change, so definetely recommended. As for DE, remember the IJN cruisers are alpha strike predators. Fire 1 volley, dodge, set fire, target repairs, fire another, set more fires. So again DE helps in that a lot (and on the Atlanta, basic firing training actually gets you more fires per minute than DE).

    Cruisers - How to?

    Expert loader is a great skill on the Zao. Railguns with great accuracy and 12 shells with good AP damage and penetration coupled with great stealth means you can often shave off large chunks of HP or straight up delete most cruisers you will face. Not to mention the AP will outdamage HE if you have broadside BB's at around 12 km away from you.

    CV- The DD scourge (DDs need Nerfs)

    A bold claim. I would say that this supposed DD problem only really exist on tier 4. If a DD rushes you down on tier 6+ then either you have positioned really poorly or the rest of the team is pretty much dead.

    DD tactics for 0.8.0, how do we survive?

    So far in my Jutland the CV experience have been: - CV spots me. - If the CV is out for me then I'm pretty much going to loose a bunch of HP unless I smoke up. And if no allies are around he will camp my smoke. - If the CV is not out for me (which to be fair seems be 90% of the time) it will briefly spot me, hover over me and then strike something else. - The squadron around me dies extremely quickly due to allied ships. I can fully accept I'm in the minority here, and this is most likely a player problem, but I don't seem to be hunted as actively as before by enemy CV's which skews my view. On paper the rework is hell however, and when a CV is out for you well you are pretty much screwed or need to run for friendly AA.
  11. Depending on the directive criteria it can be anything from 1 gaming session to 1-2 days. Also dependent on how much time I can put into the game ofcourse.
  12. Will most likely get the tier 6 before the event ends, but probably not the tier 8 (I assume you need to buy crates to get the tier 8, so screw that). 100% zero interest in the CV's. but the flags and bonuses you get are pretty nice since you have nothing else to really spend these gimmicky currencies on.

    What ship have you served on?

    Sadly no navy or ship background here, not that much of a water person so an armys life is what suited me. Still a great topic and best of luck to other who has served or will do in the future

    Beginner battleships?

    I stand corrected then. Having only played the Buffalo and Dank Memes on the test server and the Pepsi on live I was under the impression Pepsi-Baltimore normal arcs, Buffalo-DM floaty.
