    How do you actually play a Battleship?

    simple, learn your tanking limits with each BB like any other tank class, learn positioning to project threat...and learn to recognize the moment (there always is one) when you can no longer win unless you make a play (push, change position - it doesn't have to be keep pushing untill death). essentially, practice surviving under fire to break of and go unspotted, then learn to break off earlier as is suitable depending on each engagement.

    Radar consuamble vs Subs, When?

    Some really scary reading about subs here - combine stealth torpedo range with homing torps and the BBs are going to cry bloody murder. 10 km Hydro for Bbs when? Seriously subs look way too good atm, stealth is extremely powerful in this game. We once had a class with very good stealth and lots and lots of hard hitting torpedoes and lacking any kind of counter except a similar ship. It was called the torpedo soup, and it caused all kinds of outcry from frustrated BBs and cruisers who were sunk in droves without any effective counterplay. Then came hydro, radar and needs to torpedoes and flooding and the primordial soup was almost forgotten. Now we get submerged Shimakaze equipped with Romulan Cloaking device that can only be spotted by another submerged Shima. Any of this ring any bells after reading the above paragraph? And the original shima didn't even have Homing torpedoes!

    13th Season Ranked Battles.

    Sure Black is one of the stronger DDs, but it is nothing special these days. The radar proliferation has seen to that. I'd still rate Kitakaze and Jutland stronger. Kita as it offensively can 1v1 anything, jutland as the defensive choice with hydro + heals (effective hp for black is 20k - jutland is closer to 30k - and jutland has higher dpm too) Also Black I wouldnt be scared of Black torps in Kita. Those dont arrive untill next day. Top bracket has been invaded by BBs, but still sees mosly 3 dds: Kitakaze, Black and Jutland in that order. There are also the occasional Mogador, Benham and Fletcher.

    Have both and Black is no magic I win button boat. Unless it's a 4+ DD game, Kitakaze is way better. If it's a 4+ DD game, Jutland is more survivable and thus, better. In short, it gets focused like (when Blacks radar each other, guess what everybody and their mother shoots?) Kitakaze can almost take a Black with blindfire vs smoke radar.

    13th Ranked Season: is the game "pay to win"

    I'd just as soon have Jutland as Black in the top bracket. Black is only good paired with Kitakaze and they are the only ship focused even harder than Kitas. Jutland is far more survivable in a DD heavy meta. Also Black started out as a reward ship for winning Ranked x 5. No P2W there, just hard grind. These days, everybody with a bit of steel gets it, so depressing. See above. True nowadays, see above.

    13th Ranked Season: is the game "pay to win"

    Please dont bring a Chung to ranked (before the potato BBs have invaded the top bracket anyhow). Early in the season when only the best played at the top, it was 5 DDs 1 CA meta. Chung is awesome vs cruiser/Bbs comps, but good luck vs DDs with DWT and inferior guns.

    2 BBs in Clan Wars?

    Allow too many BBs and WG will be unable to milk the playerbase by selling (indirectly: steel) BBs disguised as cruisers (comrade Stalin) Next up is DDs disguised as cruisers (monsieur Colbert), thereby removing one more thorn in the eye of the Master Race.

    What is my skill level if I have a 40% WR on a day and dont drop a single star at the end (eg finish first on my team something like 50% of the games) [edited]frustrating suicidal bots are playing now.

    Will you Reset in The Research Bureau

    Might dump my FXp into resetting if no interesting FXP ships are on offer. Depends how much is needed unlock a ship. Probably its too expensive though and out of range. Atm researched pretty much the whole techtree apart from French DDs and the Kremlin so i should be in the target audience. Unfortunately i've learned to not play grinding games, so if this game is indeed heading down grind-alley, I'm out. Not going to to bother playing through the whole damn tree of used content again, thats for damned sure.

    New French DDs event... Who s gonna bother with it?!

    No. WOWs is turning into more and more way too complicated forced-fed grinding. Endless token grinds all 2019 crowned by no-life Benham grind makes me wanna puke already. Now essentially a grind to earn gambling tokens that are only useful if spending doubloons on online lootbox gambling for a T9 (that you arn't even guaranteed)?

    Upcoming Battleship buff

    Not a great BB player and It's not a big impact, but another kicking for an obscolescent ship (not quite GK levels). HE protection? With Henris and stalins swanning around it leaves only 1-2 cruiser where the deck armor even matters. Montana has been rusting since Republique entered my port. It has the same citadel protection (better vs AP bombs since narrow) and lots faster. Burns though, that is true. That overmatch matters for consistent damage when only few shells land og cruisers anyway. Also, Zaos really, really dont like it. Angled Zao basically laughs at Montanas slow shells and bounces the few that may hit.

    Upcoming Battleship buff

    This plating change is a massive nerf to the Montana too (no 30 mm overmatch option). Guess it will be Repub, Kreml, Yamato in CBs now? Fixed it for you

    Upcoming Battleship buff

    Actually it might even be a double-buff to BBs because Those CLs tended to get overpenned by BB ap alot when broadside on. But if AP shell is able to arm and blow before exiting on the other side......... BLAPP!! Not sure about how the mechnics of arming works though.
  14. This is OP has hell, not to mention immersion breaking. Meddling with the physical handling of ships? Whats next? - Special talent making BBs handle like DDs? (rudder shift, turning circle) - Special talent adding hardware like torpedo tubes and extra gun turrets to ships? - Special talent adding extra armor plate? I'm lost for words.

    MM with Minotaur and Seattle

    Probably just a WoWs losing streak special. My Yamato got cursed somewhere along the legendary grind. WR used to be 54-55%, but for the last 6 months it just cant stop losing. I have to play 4-6 games to get a win (stubborn sometimes) and I've probably played more than 30 games to get just 7 of the 15 wins for part 4 of the grind. All other stats similar to Monty, so guessing it's just bad RNG coupled with how bad BBs are at carrying.
