    Incoming fire alert and Priority target on cruisers

    Its a useful tool though, like my m8 said to me, if you get spotted you normally want to get unspotted asap, but if you can see no one is targetting you, you can get some more dmg off instead of stopping firingi immediatly.
  2. Only need to do 7 kills on T7 this week, i am loving the fact they let the Weekly missions run in the background for us "casuals" Blyskawica are you ready my dear?

    Mikhael Kutuzov...What!?

    Its a fire starter ship.. You can shoot almost twice as often as the new orleans and from almost 3km more range. Get the Demolition Expert and just watch as you keep starting fires people cant put out.
  4. So... coming back to see 1 fighter squadron removed from the Lex standard layout was dissapointing. Whats the best layout now then? Go full on strike setup or are the DBs now actually doing enough dmg to warrant the 2/0/2 setup?

    Border "fix" annoying surprise

    I think 75% is too much. I love ppl that just gush out "L2P!!!" but this video of the guy in Colorado just shows how 75% will [edited]up most of the US BBs who turn and move so [edited]slow anyway that they couldnt abuse the border tactic if they wanted to. Are you so blinded by the hate to abusers that you think this guy abused the border aswell? The Colorado moves 18.9knots stock for crying out loud! Also there WILL be situations where you are pushed to the border, be that it means you can outrange enemy ships with your longer ranged guns or its simply the fastest way to turn 180 unless you want to give the enemy free range to kill you (carriers push borders all the time, its a valid tactic to not get spotted) 50% would make be enough to stop the abusers but also not completely [edited]up a slow [edited]ship that ends in having to touch the border to save their life.
  6. My review so far of german cruisers: Karlsruhe: Made me psyhically sick to play it. Mustered a few games before i free xp past it. Koenigsberg: In my opinion every should start here for the german tree, good ship, good range, good gun dmg from AP vs other cruisers, engine gets shot out very easy though. Nurnberg: Engine problem still an issue, i dunno what WG has put on them for armor but i never had this problem in US cruisers. Also it has 8000(!) less hp than its US counter, guns are still good though and better range than cleveland. Yorck: Only had a few games but yes obviously the Yorcks problem is gun travese. With upgrades and skills its down to 38 seconds but its still so slow you have to plan your moves like you were in a BBs. At least the engine problems seems to be gone. Hp is also still lowest of the cruiser group again, but at least the guns now get a 17.3km range meaning you can stay a bit further back and not be the focus. Only reason im continueing to play the germans is that ive heard everyone say the Admiral Hipper is good.

    Fūjin

    I needed flags and doubloon and don't have any IJN destroyers so thought what the hell, I got the ship bundle. It's a fun ship and basically it's a improved minekaze in regards to guns. Has better traverse, Rate of fire and range. Also it has 200 extra hp lol. I know guns aren't the strength of IJN ships but I gotta say it's nice to turn fast. With upgrades and Commander skill it can turn turrets faster than the Gremyashchy. Only downside noticeable is the lesser speed. All in all worth it if you don't have any IJN destroyers like me and want to try one.

    Any reason to play Cruisers past T7?

    I feel that the cruiser role was fun at lower and mid tiers, brawling around in agile ships like the Omaha hunting destroyers or providing AA cover for your fleet in the Cleveland. However, all i see and read about cruisers in high tier games is they get focused from 20km+ ranged BBs for easy XP and that their role is struggling with their former job as BBs are getting great AA themselves and destroyers can now shoot torps from 10km+ ranges. I really want to use my saved XP for the new german cruisers, but i fear that its a bad time to invest deep into the tree. I stopped the US cruiser tree after reading about how poor the Des Moines was (though the pensacola helped my decision aswell) What do you guys think, whats the appeal to play cruisers in high tier games?
  12. Ah, that is good news
  13. When you play Carrier and enemy ships are already within their gun range to fire on you after 2 minutes of game start , yea... can you not please?
  14. The stock configuration 2/1/1 IS the best configuration on the Lexington to go with. I would not recommend using the others. Like wise upgrading the hull for 3000 more HP but losing alot of AA is not recommended either. If youre talking about Air Supremacy it looks like you dont have enough points though yet, but yes as it says in the tooltip adds +1 fighter to each of the squadrons

    Destroyer's Invasion?

    Had several 6vs6 destroyer matches aswell recently. Cant speak for others but ive found that playing the Destroyer role is just generally more fun than it is to sit in a cruiser or BB that performs poorly (ty pensacola for that)
