    Yamato vs Nelson

    I would say go with Nelson she is a good and very unique ship . At T10 you will come across some very good and professional type players that will punish your mistakes.

    The reason why BBs hug the map border

    I dont think that many BB's hug the border, its finding a balance of when to support from a distance and when to close in and be aggressive, get in close to early in a game with a BB and you will be set on fire and quickly destroyed, nothing more frustrating than waiting for your guns to reload while a couple of cruisers pound you with HE from behind an island or a DD suddenly appears from behind a rock and you get a broadside of torpedoes, BBs are fun but in my opinion you have to find that balance between aggression and defence. Personally, I like to go at the opposition like a rabid dog and fight it out , nothing better than a close quarter engagement with another BB, as long as its not one that has torps, I have made that mistake a few times lol, the problem playing like that is you dont last long!

    How often do you check your stats?

    I have just looked at my stats the first time in about six months, I have a win rate with all ships of 49%, what does it mean to me, not a lot. I play the game for fun, sometimes I play well and sometimes badly, I would say my win rate reflects that.

    Yamato at last :)

    Its a hard grind to the Yamato with the Izumo, a ship I had a love hate relationship with, but when you finally unlock the big ship wow! She more than fullfilled my expectations, those guns are devastating at medium range, I play her rightly or wrongly very much like a giant Warspite or Bayern, I just get stuck in and go for the enemy and rely on those big guns to devastate the oppositions ships. She is a great ship and well worth the grind.

    Thoughts about Premium Ships

    It will never happen, Wargaming are a business, they are not going to lose revenue by restricting who can and and who cannot buy premium ships.

    Hoods out!

    I am not silly enough to pay £85 for a virtual ship.................................then again to much rum and I might succumb

    I am a Royal Navy fan, but £85 for a failed battlecruiser who's only claim to fame is that she blew up is asking a bit much.

    Does the game have a future? [edited]

    I agree, their reasoning behind the RN cruisers was bizare, all they are achieving is losing UK players.
  10. Hurry, I am getting withdrawal symptoms lol.

    RN Cruisers...

    I have been critical of the Royal Navy cruiser line, but I have to say well done Wargaming, you have done a great job with Belfast. I have worked up to the Leander as well, she is a good ship with careful handling, I think in time some of us will start to appreciate the Royal Navy cruiser line, it just will take time to learn to play them properly.

    RN Cruisers...

    If these ships had HE they would be okay, but being light cruisers they are only slightly better armoured than destroyers ,which means every other class of ship can kill you quite quickly, its early days, but its difficult to see how these ships will endear themselves to the average player. Most certainly a lot of UK players will see this as Wargaming not doing the Royal Navy justice, I dont think this myself, but UK players have waited a long time to play Royal Navy ships and they will feel very dissapointed at these, all they have been asking for is competative ships that can take on the other nations fairly. The Royal Navy lost many men on the arctic convoys aiding the USSR, the least you can do is give them a competative line.
