  1. I shot a full health Ognevoi with my Gnevny ... I killed both its turrets with 1 salvo. I felt terrible

    Bogue air groups setup?

    The problem with air sup setups is that you can at best neutralize 2 ships of the enemy team... after that you're a bit useless with only DB and some spotting. An offensive carrier can have a much bigger impact

    Paper, useless catapult fighter (Kuma)

    We're talking about the fighter plane... sigh...

    I'm talking about the catapult fighter that, apparently, can either be oneshot after 2 seconds behind torp planes or hang around for 2 minutes

    That must be it, I don't understand who thought this crazy amount of RNG would be acceptable.

    Yea, I was just trying to support a nearby BB that was targeted by those torp planes.

    Well I have the Arkansas xD
  8. Used catapult fighters for the first time on my Kuma. Full squadron of torps from a Langley approaches - no enemy ships or fighters nearby. My fighter engages and dies after literally 2 seconds. I mean it, two seconds, it's not an exaggeration. It didn't manage to do anything during that time, of course. WTF?

    Russian DD's what is the point?

    Agree, 4km is completely suicidal. I almost only go for it when using speedbost against an enemy approaching me and with turrets turned away. Even then, most BBs can manage to turn their turrets / hull on me by the time I get in torp range, hoping that their secondaries don't fry me I can't count the times where, as a Gnevny, I think: "If I was a Gremy this BB would be already dead... the CV too... yep, those cruisers too!"

    Turrets stuck, won't shoot

    Tried that, didn't help. Also, wouldn't all the turrets be locked? Finally, I noticed that the gun reticles were fully grey, they weren't yellowish showing a loaded shell, as if they were destroyed

    Turrets stuck, won't shoot

    Happened to me a few times on my Gnevny, both my back turrets got stuck in position without being able to shoot or reload different ammo... They were not destroyed, they looked intact both on the ship model and on the ship status (lower left corner). The other 2 turrets worked perfectly fine; is this a glitch where turrets are destroyed but they don't show as such on my client?

    I think the Gnev is a good ship, I sure have good stats in it. It suffered a lot from the last nerf though, especially in terms of fire chance My style is: Spam HE at long ranges (< 8km) AP on broadsides at < 8km Aggressive smoke + close broadsiding cruiser + AP = massive amounts of citadels (I had 21in a game) The torps range sucks so much that they are either a last resort or a niche opportunity weapon. You can do suicide runs ofc, but you'll often end up dead or badly damaged; in most games I don't fire a single torp

    "Rangenoob"

    Hah, he really loves that ship! I would too if I had one, but I have to get by with a Gnevny :/ I don't understand how he has slightly better damage in his Gremy (57k) compared to my Gnevny (55k) and more kills per game but he has much less avg XP (-300).... I assume that is base XP, before premium, camo and flags, right? EDIT: Aaaand of course not, for some stupid reason avg XP includes premium etc etc... so dumb
