    CV rework new gameplay: what about low AA ships?

    I laugh at this.

    Will old ship models be improved?

    Having just seen the new premium ships being added to the game, and their amazing models. With little details and intricacies. I was brought back to the thoughts I keep having about the oldest models in the game. Like world of tanks replaced the oldest models with HD ones. Have wargaming ever indicated that they would start to do the same with ships? I know there will be plenty of ships that people would jump to suggest. The Fuso stands out most to me. Its a great overall model of the ship, but its crying out for attention. Some personality and flare somewhere. Just about all the first two lines USA and Japan need some love. Nice new higher definition models. Thoughts?

    should battlecruisers be added to the UK tree

    Royal navy Battlecruisers can and should be added straight into a second battleship line, treated and matchmade the same as any other Battleship. As a Gneisenau player, which is in all sense of the word is a real life battlecruiser sat in the Battleship line, I have no trouble fighting her against fast battleships and superdreadnoughts. Ballance is achieved and already is achieved with agility and speed. No need to pursue another method of balance. The Kongo is competitive, as a battlecruiser improved into a fast battleship, it keeps its battlecruiser character. the various discussions about where the ships should sit has been well trodden. My two cents would be put; Another Admiral at tier VII in the silver tech tree, pick a name, they are already known, but confusion would arise with any name, as Anson, Howe and Rodney are all names used later on other classes. G3 as a tier VII premium to sit with Nelson. G3 would be 32knts. Nelson guns, in a poorer turret layout, but Gneisanau speed. A last word from me is that I would most look forward to the Renown. I just love that ship.
  4. I am doing two missions a day. Just collecting the deadnought really. I was hacking away trying to win random games. Was hoping to win 6 games in a row and missions done. But yea bad teams alot of the time meant this was taking ages. Just yesterday I went on a loosing streak for over an hour. No matter how many XP I got it was wasted on a loss. I remember in tirpitz finishing a tier X game as top scorer with 3 kills and 130k damage and just giving in and going into co-op battles. It took over three hours in the end. So today I went co-op for 1 1/2 hours. Tirpitz and Gneisnau. As torp damage soon stacks up faster than guns. And yes I had fun. Charging into a group of red bots with manual secondaries blazing, main guns blasting and torpedoes charging. Work that Tirpitz and Gneisanau were made for.

    Trying to understand what I am doing wrong in BBs

    Main thing for the Nagato and all Battleships, is 4th level Captain skill "concealment expert". Most battleships especially the IJN ones can be seen from across the map at the start. Dont be in a group with the forward units. Be a few Km behind them. Always plan where their spotting units will be. Keep your detection circle (much reduced now with your captain skill) away from the caps that are very probably being approached by enemy units.

    DD cry babys

    I play only BB's, have spent some time in cruisers, but sold them off. I specialise on being a DD killer. Of course I dont hunt them. Well maybe in Bismarck I might. But in games where I'm confronted with the fact that I will have to fight one. I will use every trick in the book to come out on top. I would like to think that over time I have kept the upper hand. Some you win, some you loose. You end up 1 on 1 sometimes when your team all die on the flank you are on, or they all steam off on a lemming train. I'm usually the stubborn one, who decides to defend a flank alone. Not thinking I will eventually win. But thinking ill stack up as much damage as I can before the team looses anyway. n my mind if I have come away from a battle and have sunk a DD, I feel that I have accomplished more than if I sank a cruiser or BB. Especially that time I sank every single enemy DD in the red team. In Ishizuchi I sank all three when they rushed the centre into our cap. I turned and ran and swung my [edited]and fired for my life. And one after the other they died. I survived and will remember that game forever.

    Wierd and Odd Play Stats

    Just last night, he jumped on at the start of a game and unloaded a full broadside into the water from my Nelson, right near a team mate. Waiting for the day I turn pink because of the Cat.

    When my cat sits on the keyboard, I shift him off quick.

    Yes this. Tier V Ishizuchi / Fuso hybrid monstrosity. It would be a pain to play. Poor belt armour, slowish, no AA and low range guns But I did the old Fuso A hull grind and bought the pre buff Ishizuchi when it had 11km range. I know the pain and would relish it.

    Ships you kept

    8 ships. I have kept a ship on each tier that I like. I have stopped the grind on every branch other than the Royal Navy where I will stop at the KGV. All my captains are 15 and 16 point skills. All ships operate with premium consumables for silver and as many flags and free cammos as I can gather. Ishizuchi Tier IV. Kongo Tier V. Fuso Tier VI. Queen Elizabeth Tier VI. Gneisnau Tier VII. Nelson Tier VII. Tirpitz Tier VIII. Bismarck Tier VIII. I play each day get 1 win on each. I make sure I get a set of fire proof / dreadnought / secondary kill flags every day. So all ships sail with all the flags they need. I will start grinding again for anything I like comes along. Hoping RN and KM battlecruisers come along one day. The Makesen premium might be a look in as well. Swap my Bismarck captain into her.

    Lest We Forget.

    Captain Blackadder: "Well, possibly. But the real reason for the whole thing was that it was too much effort not to have a war" I'm English, and a devout supporter of our Great British nation and former empire. And don't really need a special day to remember. I remember most days of the year anyway, when reading or watching something. The Great War was un-avoidable, and inevitable. Its impossible to look at the situation with a our minds set in the 21st century. None of us has ever lived as a working, middle or upper class person, in the mind-set of a late 19th century person. Those boys and men went to war on all sides, with the un-questionable faith in their upper class leaders and monarchs ability to win the war for the good side against the bad.
  12. Neptune would fit Tier IV better. Kaiser layout and all.

    R(evenge) class Premium?

    This is how I imagine the line to be. But its a shame Queen Mary isn't shoe-horned in somewhere. There you go another premium contender, along with HMS Neptune, HMS Canada, HMS Agincourt.......the list goes on....

    Best performing tier V BB in tier VII matchmaking

    I voted Kongo too. I ship I rebought recently as my son and girlf are at tier IV and soon to be at tier V and I wanted a ship to platoon with them. And I have two 11 point JP captains to use. In a side note I also rebought the Fuso when they get to tier VI. The Kongo is the first battleship i played after open beta that looked like a battleship should. Up untill the kongo the BBs are either too small, too ugly or too fat. The kongo looks the business. For me I choose my battleships by turret rotation time. So I discarded the RN BBs. All my German captains are tied up in tier VII and VIII. So the logical choise was the Kongo and Fuso. Proper Oceon going superdreadnoughts.

    IJN Ishizuchi turret #4

    3rd Turret can fire at angles, but only elevated for long range firing. But yea broadside only at short ranges, as there is that sea boat in the way. Move the bloody sea boat
