    1 volley AP - Pure death for Cruisers ? (tier X)

    Thanks man and yes, i am investigating the cause of it and thats why i did this post. Its all about collecting information. And yes, its hard to remember the good once over the bad once ^^. But i feel that many people just resort to "go learn the game" which aint the issue in this case. I can agree that im not among the best or even good. But im avarage player and i rarely get hit in my broadside. its always from the front or 45degree angles. I meen, it cant be a single perk that does this that im missing when its so common for me. Its same in my mogami when i meet same teir of battleships. But thanks for your reply man! And im off the evening now, 3 days grind and i need some good wine and dinner out with GF to repay for Doubloons ^^

    1 volley AP - Pure death for Cruisers ? (tier X)

    Yes i have 100 games in Zao. But i play on 2 accounts (edit: mine and the one i took over from my gf - hers have more dublooms ^^. who assumed i only had this account? common bois, think wider). I have filled out an excel document for each and every fight. Ive been grinding 24/7 the last 3 days (ie: 2 days ago +today - and then there was the patch). Anyhow, thanks for all the quick replies and thanks for the suggestion to check out the Cruiser forum, i will do so. However, i did not come here because there are things ive missed. I came here because im getting 1 shooted by an AP battleship and wanted to express my thoughts about it and check if others have the same issue. The distance im being killed from range from 10km up to 22km, but the majority ends up around 14.4-16.7km. And i have the -100% detonation chance flag. Sometimes it requiered a second salvo (as the first one did 38k), but 45 of my DEATHS are done by a single salvo battleship. As mention above i can understand that some people are good, but when this happenes in almost 50% of all my deaths i smell something else then just skill/rng.
  6. Hello Bois. So, ive come back to this game after a year break. I was the first guy in EU reaching tier 10 as japanese Cruiser and i had a blast back then (when people where wallriding to dodge fire and carriers was unkillable). But ive notice that nowdays i get 1 shoot by a battleship with AP. Thats 40k + 3.5k from perks in ONE shoot. This have happened so often now that its not "pure RNG" or "Skill". It seems to be common that if you are a cruiser nowdays you should hide like a DD ? I have no chance if i get spotted for a second by a battleship or anyone of his teammates (where he can reach me, and thats over 20km). Anyone else experienced this? This cant be ment to be like this. Edit: I should add that my "testing" have been done on 100 games, where i died in 65 games with Zao since 2 days ago. And in 45 of them i died by a single volley (i managed to sink a few other guys before going down ^^). But once sunk, it was always 1 volley AP.
  7. Thats one well written post! Cheers, was a delight to read. Anyhow, just to keep this post filled in with a perspective from someone who is T10. Im one of those "12" who reached T10 first and i did it with Cruisers (Zao) and i did it alone with no grouping what-so-ever (vacation times, rest of the year i work). I enjoy grinding in any game, thats what i enjoy and it has been a blast in World of Warships (but it continues). I do however have a bad win-rate as its mostly me, alone T10, vs 3 other hightranked guys (99% a T10 carrier with T10 or T9 friends. Also during my low tier times vs T8 premium ships) but i dont mind that at all, i see it as a challenge, something fun! It actually make me alot better then keep steamrolling on low tiers. So its not only T7/8 who "have bad luck" meeting them or how you want to name it. But its all about personal perspective if its good or bad experience. So once again, read the quoted post above and ponder! - "If i can do you, you can do it" And as we are talking about "12 people" out of the 35-40k people on EU servers. Then we are talking about so small numbers it wouldn't be justified in the grand scheme to redo the algorithm of matchmaking. In the scientific world its unsufficient data to make any conclusions yeat.

    Fix the map border exploit already

    Ive saved every encounter ive had like this with shadowplay, and for some reason 99% of the videos are from the same 2 CA users. I know they are using something that exists in the game, but by definition its called "abuse" because it gives an unfair advantage. The "you can do the same" is not viable here as we are talking about diffrent classes and rank 9-10 Carriers doing it. I rarly get close with my zao and have to dodge 5 waves of planes before im even in a killrange (10km, then my projectiles travel fast enough so he cant "bruce lee" the walls). Anyone claiming its "easy" to kill anyone hugging the boarder havent meet anyone who knows what he is doing over there. If any gamedeveloper is reading this, please PM me if you are intrested in videos. Im pretty sure they are well aware of it. Untill then ill enjoy the lower lvls

    The Mini-Update last night left the game unable to execute.

    There is not much information in this thread. But go to the directory and change the compability modes to diffrent once and try again. We have windows 10 coming the 27th of july, untill then i can only recommend clearing all preference files under your documents. Or even reinstall.

    Question about AA active Skills since 0.4.0

    Im on Zao with all passive abilitys for AA on my commander and i even have the +20% addon attached. I still struggle alot with planes so its AA might need a small boost. But as you say, nothing about this was mentioned in the patchnotes so im wondering if its unintentional with the new airplane models (now more of them in formations). and yes, we are stuck with the attackplane rather then scoutplane!

    Patch notes for update

    As we are quoting just some parts of what ppl previously mention in this thread, let me visit this part OvanBruce. Sounds very "american" and "90's kid" approach and as English is not my native tongue i couldnt find better words for it. But here in Sweden we call it: "Demanding spoiled brat". Especially when you request more then what has been promised AND provided.

    Patch notes for update

    Im the only one that see the benefit of it all? The gamedeveloper of the game i love gets more cash = more content = new stuff = awesomesauce. I gladly buy the ships even if i dont play them to support the company. I enjoy this game alot and i do not mind the small cashinput needed as it usually raise the participants average age. Everything regarding the warspite was mentioned and information was made public.

    Player Evolution vs. Devolution

    best stuff ive read all day. thanks for starting my day with a smile on my face. Remember playing games in the late 80's and 90's where we had to figure everything out yourself! Oh the joy!

    When will wargaming fix the stuttering issue?!?!?!?!

    its nothing they are "going to fix" as its due to the amount of ppl playing along with all the new planes and animations. Unless you are playing on a faxmodem you should be fine. if not, load medium settings and enjoy maxfps~
