    Nearly joined Navy as doctor, was leading cadet in Naval section of OTC and been mad about ships since a child - made large scale models of warships with boyhood friend, sailing them on large pond and blasting them with air gun from about 50 yards! Long time ago but good aiming practice! Not so good for the fish!

    Just had a look at your stats. You went up the tiers too early to get hold of good ships - did just the same myself. I went back and found a ship to practice in - I chose the T3 St Louis - tough so forgiving and lots of guns so you can practice shooting a lot! I played it till I got better, learned about angling and positioning and then moved up. Tier 1 is not really the place to learn as apart from the odd seal clubber, you will get mainly novices. Co-op is amusing but not the real game. I still play it to get mission objectives when tired. I played St Louis till I got over a 50% WR and then went up.

    Your favorite cruiser: Tier for tier

    I can only assume that is because you have blotted out the memory of the Albany - I think the only premium I ever sold (though bought her back as a collectors item as built in my home town!) Awful gun range, engine breaks if sneezed at and simply awful! I really only play T7 much these days and the Fiji is spectacular. Much more fun than the Belfast and though the Atalanta is hilarious, it is also far too fragile. Would love a Dido though!

    Pre-setups for ships

    I understand why you suggest this but I reckon half setting up a ship is to cover what you expect to happen. You have to manage all situations and being able to scrap, for instance, all your AA defence when you see no carrier is unfair on the other classes. Ships should on the whole be balanced so they can take on all comers or be very specialist in the first place like DDs that can only torp BBs or CVs.

    An idea to fix the, supposedly, OP Premium "problem"

    I have both Fiji and Belfast. And I play both regularly - very regularly! The Fiji is far more fun - agile. hard hitting guns, good torps,smoke, hydro and a heal. It can be one shotted so don't sit still in it. In comparison, the Belfast has radar which is just enough to blap a stationary DD in smoke, but is not as long range as the T8 cruisers you often meet. It also has HE which allows you to burn down BBs. However it is nothing like as agile as the Fiji and the lack of heal means a mistake costs you. Of the two, I am more confident in the Fiji and I think I offer more to the team. The nerf to detection is a pain though as it gives DDs more time to leg it when I track them with rdf!
  5. Agree - though it is quite amusing to one shot the opposing bot Nelson - twice had 5 citadels in one salvo!
  6. Got Hermes and Furious - will work towards the Implacable but doubt will play any of them except in training room! But have to get all the British ships!

    Exeter: Why is there only an "ADMIRAL PACK" ?!

    I rather like Exeter - if in a tier 5 battle, it is very strong but you have to keep moving like any other T5 cruiser. The guns can do all sorts of nasties to other cruisers and the helm is responsive. Smoke would make her completely OP. If in a T7 game, you are very fragile! Started by playing in Co-op and actually managed to lose a co-op game for the first time in quite a while!! However getting the hang of her and she is really quite fun. Certainly preferable to the Emerald!I am a collector, particularly of the RN ships - even have Hermes and have no intention of using her for the moment! I cheat and use a 19 point captain because I have plenty of these in RN ships but she is fun and the grind looked particularly tedious!
  8. The turret turning speed seems ridiculous. No large calibre gun on any battleship could rotate this fast - the Iowa managed 4 degrees per second. Giving battleships turrets with huge guns that rotate this quickly is simply idiotic as they rotate quicker than a Myoko. The mechanics of moving this type of gun makes these speeds impossible. Having paper ships with stats like this nullifies any pretence that this game is based on real warships. I know that you have to pander to your Russian audience but even they will regard breaking the laws of physics as a joke.
  9. Did it and then looked through the rest of the Exeter grind - couldn't be bothered so just bought her!

    Why do people dislike T10 and choose lower tiers?

    Tier seven is where I like to be. The players are friendlier and the game play much more fast and furious. Also the sweet spot for RN cruisers ! At top tier, people get far more upset when they lose and this much be down to the economy. I like to win but I don't mind losing if the game was good and my team outplayed. However I have no shortage of credits and all the ships I want and a Premium account. My attitude is unlikely to be reflected in tier X especially in those where a loss means a considerable loss of credits.

    Petition for HMS Furious(BC config) in WOWS

    I was thinking the same - a collection of bizarre and frankly mad ships - Could include the round Russian battleship, WOWS has done a couple of lists of weird ships - the Furious is on one of them!!

    Karma; how much is out there?

    299 - was 300 then I ambushed a North Carolina in my Cossack! And I sail mainly Fujin, Belfast, Fiji and Atlanta which are supposed to get negative reports - maybe if I played them better it would help!

    The KV-2 of WoWs

    Probably more useful in game would be the Courageous - 4 15" guns and 18 4" secondaries. In 1917 she was additionally fitted with 12 torpedo tubes on the upper deck in addition to the two fixed underwater tubes originally fitted. Just over 30 knots. The turrets were later used in the Vanguard! .

    Atlanta.Is she still worth it in 2019

    Hilarious ship - made out of paper so you get blapped easily but the rate of fire is wonderful - very useful for tasks when you need multiple hits from main guns! You can have killer games and you can get blown up without doing anything. Used to be fantastic AA ship - mine had an AA rating of 85 - not as good now but latest update has made it a bit better. No CVs though since then!!

    How many Krakens do you have?

    70 - there was the short lived 4 goal haul which was a mini kraken. Looks more like a squid! Have 5 of those!
