    Interaction of large-caliber AP shells with DDs

    Well put and interesting points, much lacking from others, 'taking the mickey' sarcasm at its worse belittling the situation or person. I read another thread today and was appalled at the abuse people were dishing, not one or two but many, only one supplied useful advice, so sad. I do note that DDs are now becoming lone hunters rather than team players on their game play, something quite new in my experience. As I say I don't team play but choose my own path which suits me and leads to a place where I am happy with winning and loosing. At times I am a welcome distraction as it allows the enemy to focus on me allowing the team to win, so independence can be useful to a team. I do understand devoted players enjoy the team play in the top tiers, I choose to play at most levels having no preference. Mixing tiers is always a gripe but with WOT and others a total disaster for game play. But I do feel players clinching in their game play getting worse here with technicalities of the game. Sadly so often noticed on games like COD with kangaroo hopping across the battlefield, it feels such nuances in gameplay is becoming more common on here. You may consider it adds to the game as it moves from original semi realistic gameplay to nuanced technical exploitation gameplay. How realistic is a destroyer to take out a battleship with gunfire, impossible in the real world. Buying damp squib ships and equipment is a norm but all have their abilities that can be developed into decent gameplay. Your written English is good and had no idea it was not your first language. Again I appreciate your advice.

    Thank for an honest reply which does cover certain concerns but my play today showed well my concerns. I played twice the same battleship on the same map with the same scenario of battleship vs destroyer. I have always employed the same tactic of sailing away with rear guns, once with HE and one with AP. Little difference in damage caused to the DD where I would normally destroy it with ease. In one of those examples the DD took me out with just HE shells no torps despite being hit with my HE shells on several occasions. This seems to be regular event recently but not in the past, same as their invisibility a recent invention they exploit. I have noticed big changes over the effective range of guns on battleships which seems to be forever changing week to week. I have been playing this game from the beginnings but don't enjoy clans and their associated team playing. So I have a broad experience of the gaming and changes from those early days. I play 7 days a week for many hours since the game started but never use the forum or joined clans only as an individual player. Others on here understand there does seem to be an issue, others seem to want to take the mickey rather than advise which is not what the forum is for. I am experienced with many forums and considered 'senior' on their sites. This abuse by 'senior' posters is very disturbing, I give out serious medical advice to sick and dying people and would never consider myself someway superior when helping others. Because a person posts a lot does not give them rights to put a person down or take the mickey. These points are not directed at you personally.

    Sorry I missed understood the 'senior' member of an online forum, you mean you post more on the site than others. Having read the whole thread there are many who have concerns over mods to the game so I am not the only one. Yes there are massive mods to gameplay clearly giving advantage to DDs and the use of HE plus the reduction in damage of AP. Perhaps this is the wrong place for advice and concerns plus hopefully getting the owners to take notice. I would suggest you read the thread on the most recent up dates thread where more people are bringing up their concerns.

    You bought up employment or best for the job, the only difference between us I choose not to be a team player in the sense of clans. You played a few more games with me overall and clearly addicted to the forum. Our aims are so different in gaming and probably life. This a forum is here to assist and help people not to abuse them, you offer nothing in that respect. Common sense an interesting point and its measure cannot be quantified but many abuse its meaning. I do not pursue clans or team play so not interested in that area. But am affected by changes in gameplay and so are many others on here, you have no right to dismiss them. So clearly why do you post, you don't want to help merely abuse. You hold contempt on people who don't follow your closed theories or meet you stats, you clearly are unsuitable to advise. So why do you pretend to advise or is another bizarre score you want to achieve like your gaming stance. There are genuine people on here who do want to help and advise, why not leave it to them?

    Yes age has its affects as does serious illness but I was still a good player into my 50s being well league tables. But reality bites and gameplay is affected as I was playing yesterday proved speed abilities would have helped. So age has great affects especially with changes, I hate new maps in all games. But this is not an age question as many players have expressed concerns in this specific area of gameplay, so why you and others are concerned with stats and my personal facts. If you have been a gamer for many years you will understand the issues of youngsters gaming, I have a son who is one of the top players in the world at Mech Warriors. They play to win at any cost and any way including cheating etc., the norm in gaming history. So age very much makes a difference and I have read the concerns of such issues on this site.

    Relevance, we are playing games. Being in business and employing many people there is a massive difference in work and gaming, the two don't compare in the slightest. Same with being in the military has absolutely no common ground with gaming but the kiddies insist its similar. We are playing a game nothing more and I play to enjoyment, a concept you youngsters don't seem to compute. Again why post on the forum when you don't want to help, just to take the p*ss.

    Again mines bigger than yours routine, my stats better than yours, so childish. I don't play to win but to enjoy the game, many people on this thread identify with the issue of DDs and HE/AP. The idea of this forum is to assist people, you seem only capable of sarcasm and bragging. So why post on the forums, you are clearly not here to help. I do win against destroyers many times but with the changes the advantages have swung to DDs to far, identified by many on this thread. I also choose not to join a clan so I don't do team by choice, if team playing was what you wanted than clan matches would suit.

    The idea of such a forum is to help and assist firstly, clearly not in your skillset. There are many on this thread that have expressed my same concerns so clearly it is your agenda that is at fault. Humble pie yes something you have never faced in your apparent young life so I suggest you restrict your conversations to something you have knowledge. It is a shame that this section of the thread forms an abusive element because most parts include good advice. But there does seem a minor selection of sarcastic individuals of high rank who prefer abuse, you meet that requirement, a real shame.

    My age does not allow me to compete with young bucks as I do play COD, WOT etc. just for fun as my reactions so slow. The pleasure in this game is in one on one I can compete with but the latest tweaks are destroying gameplay mostly around HE and DD's. Therefore after reading the thread and many others expressed their concern I thought this was where we express our views.

    No that is constructive advice that I expected, yes I don't read manuals like many of us ancient men. But I have been watching a few vids produced online which occasionally helpful and informative. I have been playing this game ever since it came out and there has been quite noticeable changes to in gameplay altering this and that. I have also witnessed many games changing over the years sadly leading to their demise eventually. Gimmics in the game are normally linked with forced cash additions where check book gamers dominate. I feel this game may be going the same way if less people are playing and the owners profits fall, yes this game suits me as my slowness dominates as age takes over. But it will be a sad day if the owners follow Mech Warriors or fold as unprofitable.

    I took the time to read the whole thread and clearly you have not. There are many posters on this thread that have concerns yet this childish mine is bigger than yours by these last few posts bring shame on the whole forum. Perhaps your ranks should be restricted as clearly you don't warrant it on such forums.
  12. Limey57

    Interaction of large-caliber AP shells with DDs

    Again sarcasm rather constructive comment, no doubt your rank due to the amount of posts rather than ability to help or advise. What my scores have to do with such issues which have common to many others who posted on the tread. Yes I took the time to read all posts which shows what in poor taste kiddie language you and some others have posted. I have only seen this silliness on Mech Warriors and it seems beyond you young brains to comprehend playing for enjoyment and not to win every time. But recent game adjustments have altered and I amongst many others turned to the forum to bring focus on our concerns only to find cheap childish jibes.

    I must admit I use these forums rarely in gaming but found them in general quite informative and helpful over the years. I can only assume the high ranks achieved next to your names is through the amount you post rather than ability discuss matters at an adult level. There have been many who posted on here concerned with the disadvantages and changes to gameplay and for the most part intelligently answered, shame on this last part of the subject. Perhaps those ranks should not be issued as sweeties for how many posts but the advice they offer. Sad day for those WOS, WOT seems to be OK why so bad here must be a concern!

    Cheap sarcasm again over mine stats with my is bigger than yours routine, perhaps you should stick gaming rather than imparting advice at a child's level.

    I say gameplay in general is going through the floor, not my specific gameplay. But I am put off the ever changing gameplay spoiling the game by the programmers themselves. I dislike clans, to many Kiddies exploiting clichés in the game or niche changes. My question was an honest basis and clearly expected to much as the replies have been so childish. I have read most of this thread and it is clear that many others think like me over the constant changes. Perhaps it is time to move on and leave the game to the kiddies that dominate the game. It does seem a shame as the money invested such a waste but does seem the norm over the 40 years of gaming I enjoyed.
