  1. If I was to buy one of TVIII premium BBs, which would you suggest?

    How to ranked sprint?

    Ha, managed to win 3 battles and get to lvl4 then lost two, both times I ended second in my team so I'm back at lvl5...

    How to ranked sprint?

    Enemy carrier closed to much in the beginning of the match and I had no better target (dds smoked up, and rest of the enemy team was in one blob). It is easy to do a lot of damage to a CV with Tiny Tim armed planes. I expected a hail of fire when that CV was spotted, as it was in range of all BBs in my team, but nothing happened... I ignored it later, as it moved away and behind main group of enemy ships.

    Thanks! I generally try to follow the guidelines you set, especially engage DDs first. Though you will often know how the battle will go early on when you see your team is not engaging DDs you spot for them... Unfortunately US carriers can't citadel cruisers, so their dmg potential is much lower. Where is the best place to aim US HE bombs? Superstructure? When attacking DDs or smoke cruisers do you sit the smoke out, to make sure they are not getting away or strike other ships in the area and return with the other strike? Do you drop fighters in support of own DDs? It take a lot of time and often lead to just 1-2 kills for me. I should use fighters for spotting more, that is right.

    The Last Salvo Phenomenon

    Some of my best salvoes against DDs were blind shooting :D It probably has a lot to do with the fact that ships in smoke are either stationary or moving slowly, so if you memorize where they were and RNG gods allow, more shells may connect than on other occasions.

    How to ranked sprint?

    Thanks! I know I need more experience, I have just 3 ships on tier VIII so far (Lex, Edinburgh and Cleveland, the last one played when she was still TVI :D ) so there is not much to chose. The thing that makes me wonder is that I either get wins where I barely get above 30k, as enemy team just melts, or losses where I get damage and kills, but never save a star (actually, I was first on losing team in Edinburgh once, only I had no star to save at that point... )

    How to ranked sprint?

    Sure I did, at least when it wasn't in the smoke or covered by Massa (and there were only a few occasions like this). Unfortunately our DD chased enemy CV for ENTIRE GAME, around the edge and still failed...

    How do you ever reach above lvl 5? To reach lvl 3 you need to win 6 battles pretty much in a row. The problem is that teams are somehow terribly unbalanced, so most of the battles are complete devastation of one of the teams. Every time I get a star, another of those wipes on my team happens, so I lose a star. The best I got was 2 wins in a row, but then I got 3 losses... Is it just my bad luck or what? I am sick of battles where only enemy ship sunk is sunk by me...
  9. As you telling me that average player can earn~8-10.000 xp per battle across all tiers? And that assuming 100% WR. At 50% WR you need to get 15-18.000 on victory games. That is Unicum level IMHO not average player, unless you constantly buy tons of dragon flags and best possible camos. But then you can as well just buy premium ships.

    CVs in ranked sprint.

    On the other hand, on those small maps it is easy to find and blap a CV. Seen both successful and unsuccessful attempts - as soon CV is spotted, everyone wants a piece of it...

    Rejoice - let the CV AP nerf come to pass!

    That's probably because there are people on this forums that would propose sth like that being completely serious. Those same people who scream that AA is worthless because they can't eliminate all planes in a lone Cossack...

    Or maybe solve CV supposed imbalance by spawning other team DD right beside it with torps loaded? DDs are spotted from what? 3km? That is too close to line up a strike on the first pass. Unless you sail with AA active in DD, and then it is your own fault. On the other hand, on many maps CVs are visible from 1/4 of map area and if DD enter this zone, CV turns into piniata for enemy team. Because guess what, in CV you cant fight and dodge. You have to choose if you will sail the ship or pilot guided shells.

    How many of them are in the game? And what chance the other team has if your team has super unicums in ANY ship class?

    CVs in ranked sprint.

    WOW! There is what, 1 CV for 20 BBs in the queue and whiners will cry CVs are end of the world problem. In reality, 2 tier VIII ships sailing close by will exterminate planes and almost nothing will pass (except maybe Enterprise planes, but it is absurdly OP) 3 strikes like that, and you are a torpedo with 15km visibility. And guess what, ranked teams go all together and so rip the strikes apart. And even if you will hit, 3 planes torpedo strike has as much damage potential as a SINGLE dd torpedo. Neither bombs nor rockets are massive damage dealers - comparable to BB and CL shells respectively. True, carrier has better chance to hit than other ships, but no other class projectiles can be shot from the sky, and time between strikes is what? A minute? And on top of that, only CVs can run out of ammo. Sure, a lone DD may be strafed 2-3 times per strike. Except Oland that is, as she has AA better than many TVIII cruisers. Still, rockets do about 1-3k damage per strike (1-3 hits), bombs a bit more IF they hit (and they often miss even with perfectly aimed strike...) Still, RNG decides if you will go to good or bad team and so if you progress or not. Yesterday I got to level 7 and today? 4 losses in a row. 3 of them we were stomped, 1 time the only sunk enemy ship was sunk by me.

    What Causes Raptor To Get Stuck Behind An Island?

    At some point after CV rework pathfinding of autopilot was completely broken. It was later slightly upgraded (it used to do random things if too close to map edge, now only close to islands)
