    Am I the only person who doesn't use Priority Target?

    Got PT on pretty much all my captains. It gives a lot of (meta) information. Example: early game, I’m pushing a cap with my BB. I’m spotted by a red DD and than the PT goes up to 7. I might not see a single enemy ship but I know than that there are at least 7 within firing range from me. A lot of them likely heading to the same cap where I’m going. That’s usefull info to have. It can tell you how agressive you can play. PT can give a lot of information if you can make the correct interpretation. It’s like RPF for that matter. And information wins battles.

    Gearing or Harugumo first?

    If you like the Fletcher over the Kitakaze, I quess the Gearing is the best bet. It’s classic DD gameplay. Harugumo is a light cruiser for all intends and purposes; Kitakaze is much more DD than Harugumo will ever be.

    Yeuyang post Nerf with Poll.

    Yep I’m 20.000 base XP away from obtaining it. Not planning on using the module indeed. Just want the personal mission out of the list ;-)

    Yeuyang post Nerf with Poll.

    YY is still playable but went from above average (not OP IMHO) to below average. I’ll grind out the remaining XP for the legendary module on it, after that the captain will move to the Chung Mu. I reckon that’s the more fun ship to play after this nerf.

    Analysis of AA rework and Ship/CV-interaction

    I dislike games with the current itteration of CVs; this new CVs in the game might just end my WOWs carreer

    [Nerf Bat] Yueyang being slaughtered

    I never play CB...I only use smoke because using it with radar in randoms is a waste. Notsers solution of giving it another hull for radar, with the intended nerf, sounds fine to me. Balances radar use in CB while leaving it fun to play in randoms as it is now. Anyway, glad I didn’t buy a perma camo for it. Proposing this kind of nerfs does not really make me eager to buy any perma camos for silver ships again.

    Reasons behind "Roflstomps"

    There was an interesting discussion on this subject more than a year ago on the North American forum. Basically it has to do with Lanchester’s law; in WOWs the effect of this law is that the effect of loosing ships early on is much greater than one would think from just looking at the numbers. Lanchester’s law in WOWs This does not take into account unicums or extreme potatoes, but if the MM is not rigged, (which I don’t think it is) landslide victories/losses are the logical outcome which you will most often see.

    What to do with US version of Ovechkin?

    Thinking about placing him on the Nicolas, that might benefit from both skills. Could be interesting for another T5 sprint season.

    The Ranked One thread (post here when you reach Rank I)

    28 battles, 68% winrate, 2,9 k/d ratio. Mostly Kami R, a few games GC and one Murmansk. Lotta fun, not so grindy as regular ranked. I gotta say that the number of hard-carries (kill 3-4 red ships) needed was beyond my expectations. Also I did frown uppon a clanmate who ranked out in 23 battles with a 52% winrate, I mean how? Quess he was better at saving stars.

    Does the battle off Samar count?

    CV Rework Discussion

    A rather ignorant answer mr. El2aZeR. I do agree with LazyVegetable here. My main gripe with carriers is that at most stages of the game you can’t fight them. Any other ship will have to sail into harms way to make use of their weapon systems. Not so carriers; they sit back and throw planes at you from way beyond reach. There is no counterplay against that. The carrier attacks, you try to survive. That invisible DD has to risk his ship to get into torp range. Not so the carrier. One can’t outplay a CV like you can outplay other ship classes. One just hopes the red CV is dumb or sends his planes to a part of the map where you are not. I assume the above will pretty much remain the same after the rework. Might actually get worse with unlimited plane supplies. Let’s just hope the CV gameplay is so boring that nobody bothers with CVs anymore ;-)

    Poll on WG points mentioned during CV rework video

    Please enlighten me how I can counter TX CV-play in a non-AA ship. As far as my experience goes, if a (good) TX-CV player wants you dead, you're dead. Nothing you can do about that. Problem with CVs in general and high tier CVs especially is IMHO not their damage potential but risk-free playstyle of CVs. If you don't sail a completely AA-specced ship there is no counter to a CV attack. You cannot outrun the planes ,you cannot hide behind islands. And it's impossible to deal with the source of the attack because it's hiding at the back of the map. Which makes the experience rather frustrating.

    Leaked CV Rework CO-OP Game Video

    The main problem I have with regard to CVs is that it’s an indirect fire class. It’s just not fun to play against a class of ships when the only counterplay available is to try dodge the bombs and torpedos. CV-play will still be pretty much risk-free. And with unlimited planes available late-game fights against a CV will not be fun at all I suspect...

    Got it just now!

    Aigle marathon, how's your progress been so far?

    Got the Aigle yesterday. Not a bad little ship, actually positively surprized after the negative reviews I read and saw on Youtube. To complete the GoF campaign I played 11 battles with Aigle, of which 10 wins. 2 Krakens and in general a very good K/D ratio. Quess I had a lucky streak :-) Still, with it’s speed and HP it’s quite a good DD hunter and as such you can have some influence on the game.
