  1. Many thanks, this will keep me busy making notes when I get home from work.
  2. Hi Guys Thought I would ask the experts and rather than inflict myself onto the player base in real time, can you recommend an all in one youtube vid for me. I have tried playing a few games against bots but am struggling a bit. Thought I would try CV's to avoid the HE spam fest a bit and learn something new. Had a few good cv players hand my [edited]to me in DD's by either continually spotting me and making my life hell or cross dropping and sending me home early. Thanks in adavance Kind Regards SKWK
  3. Quite agree with you, spent 3 battles last night ducking in & out of Islands and ruining the enemys ability to push in. Love the speed of the turrets but more importantly the power of the guns and accuracy are just great. I only have 17 battles so far (real life keeps interfering lol) but she's my favourite ship at the minute.
  4. I prefer the Nelson too, the guns are so much more accurate and hard hitting, espically to CL/CA's. The armour is so so but the heal more than makes up for that, all you really have to do is try to avoid over extending by yourself and coming under massed HE spam, also there's the lets kill the new ship syndrome too lol.
  5. I have both, though havent had much time to play this past month or so, due to work and life commitments but I played 3 battles on the bounce last night with the Nelson and she feels very very nice, great guns, plenty of damage output (I averaged 90k over the 3 battles) and had 3 wins. Yes I know 3 battles are no were near enough to form any conculsions but she felt good, reasonable rudder time and the armour didnt feel as bad as is being described and I did come under an awful lot of fire (New ship syndrome lol, lets kill the new ship) and the heal definatly saved my butt on at least one occasion. Look forward to divisioning up with my clan mates and taking perhaps a couple of Nelsons out, now that would cause some problems to the enemy team.
  6. Thanks Flamu, I watched this on your Youtube a short while ago, much appricated and has given me some idea of whether to continue with the IJN line or finish the US line. Keep up the good work
  7. Have WG given any idea of the time scale for release? Have my xp waiting and just want to press the button lol
  8. Hi Op Just to say wow, have rarely seen such a wall of text about a ship, now this is not a judgemental post and I am like you an average joe but whilst I respect your right to a opinion I think you'll find the vast majority have nothing but praise for this ship, yes its not the best but by no means anywhere near as bad as you imagine and say . A lot of your problems seem to be from picking fights with DD's that you should be avoiding, she's not a gun boat, though a 5 sec reload is nothing to sniff at. Have a look at some of the vid's on Youtube, Flamu, Notser etc, they will give you some better hints at what and what not to do with her and in some respects DD play in general. PS - One point I will mention, is that if you are playing WoW then abandoning games in randoms should not be the norm, either make the time to play without interruptions (family emergency not withstanding) or don't play, I think your attitude there really disrespects the players who make the effort but thats a purely personal opinion. Anyway good luck with the Gallant and fair sea's. Kind Regards SKWK
  9. Hi In WoT I have been in TEC for as long as I can remember but I have switched to playing WoW's as I felt the Gold ammo creep/New Premium tanks were ruining the game. Anyway TEC have a presense in WoW's but really never play or do anything, so I am looking at switching to a more active clan and was wondering if you are interested in taking on a relative noob but one who is steadily improving. My histrorically interests in the Naval side of things, all stemmed from reading and re-reading the complete Hornblower series many times and my favourite line at the minute is the RN CL line, espically the Fiji and Minotaur, although I do like the Shiny Horse and Graf Spee. Anyway looking forward to hearing more from you later. Kind Regards SKWK
  10. All as above, I loved mine and regret selling her so I could afford the T10. Will definatly buy her back when I have the cash/credit flow to do so. She's tanky as hell when angled properly, the AA isnt bad and I had her specced for secondaries.
  11. Sorry but I disagree, the Belfast whilst an ok ship, seriously misses having torpedo's and heal. Like all RN CL's she is seriously squishy and once you smoke up, any good player will just charge into your smoke (your team backing you up might help but mostly not :-( ) and take you out. But this is a personal opinion, I know lots of people like her but I don't. Fiji is just miles better
  12. The Fiji is a lovely cruiser to play and to look at too. As VC says she rewards the aggressive, playstyle. My only add to it all would be to constanly think of your postioning and your enemys postioning and to have that escape route in the back of your mind at all times and smoking up in the middle of an empty ocean, whilst it might hide you for your smoke duration, any enemy (mainly thinking of BB's) who wants to wait you out, is going to be rewarded, unless you sneak out the back to smoke and make a run for it. But for a fun filled game the Fiji provides it all. At the minute I am running a 60% win rate in her after 53 battles, she definatly my favourite, just in front of the Graf Spee.
  13. If you need/want to platoon up, give me a shout
  14. Hi HSJ Well as a young boy I was in the Sea Cadets for two years but for some reason when I turned 16 I joined the British Army lol, luckily I joined at a time when there was a lot of opportunities to serve all over the world. I was in the Falklands war, attached to the Rapier AA missile units (12 AD Regt Wksp "T" & "9" Bty), I served in Belize for 6 months on the Guatamalen boarder (Holdfast Camp if anyone here remembers it), I have spent 4 months in Norway with the Royal Marines (3 Commando Brigade Air Squadron), I spent 2 years in Hong Kong with 660 Sqn AAC, just before we handed it over to the Chinese and I have spent over 4 years in Northern Ireland on and off, same with Germany I have spent over 12 years in Germany with various units. Like all Army people, I have exercise all over the world and have been envolved in the following conflicts, Falklands War (as mentioned), Northern Ireland through-out the height of the troubles, Bosnia with NATO, Kosovo with UN and the Iraq war in 2003, just before I left after 25 years. I know its not naval service but it just goes to show, that its not just people with a Naval background who have been bitten by the WoW's bug, though my father in law was a Petty Officer in the submarine service and has a huge list of interesting stories. Regards SKWK
  15. Saw you last night ilhilh, I was in my Lo Yang and you were in a division of Hoods, you killed me as I was tunnelled visioned on an Alabama about 8kms away, whilst sitting in my smoke after 3 kills,thinking where he's going, when I should have looked up and thought "Bugger, wheredid that bloody Hood come from lol" Well played anyway, if my torpedo reload had been 15 sec's faster, I might have taken you with me For me though, the ShineyHorse is my favourite and fun ship, I have the Hood but too few games in her to make any call on whether shes any better.
