  1. Concerning playing Atlanta as an AA cruiser, there are a few steps to doing this (there are probably people who are better but these are my thoughts). 1: check what the CV is. High tier Japanese will probably go for DDs, while most US will primarily go for large targets. 2: check what the most likely targets are: Isolated BBs with little cruiser support is a typical example. 3: select whom you can protect while staying somewhat safe. This is a combination of island cover and massed fleet, islands provide cover from fire and LOS, large fleets provide distraction (they tend to blow up anyone spending too much time in the open). 4: follow them around, be aggressive you need to be in a position to stay in cover from BBs + CA and engage planes and enemy DDs + BBs. 5: Enemy CV never throws any planes towards you? THIS IS AWESOME means you just ensured no one you escort got CV dropped just by you being there. An AA specced Atlanta is very dangerous for a CV. note! You can cut the AA consumable short by turning off your AA temporarily, this will initialize the reload so you can be ready again faster, remember your AA consumable is unlimited. REMEMBER sometimes you will die without accomplishing much, it might be bad luck or you overextending, regardless it is never those your escort's fault because you made the choice to escort (even if it can be rage worthy when following them gets you killed).
  2. yes? or at least sensible translations otherwise it wouldn't be warships but just random blobs under weird physics firing pixels at each other.
  3. Might be asia only https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2017/05/18/wows-isoroku-captain-mission-asia-only/
  4. I only got the CO from the Bronze bundle, no sign of the XOs.
  5. My biggest disappointment with all this is the flags only is available is the (overly expensive) gold packs. :(
  6. Yeah, I know, but honestly, I wouldn't put anything past the EU team these days. (admittedly I also stated it partly as a joke but as I am explaining that now it is no longer funny. *sighs* so sad.)
  7. nah they are probably telling themselves "This is the EU not Japan, so no one cares about some anime stuff, let's skip it altogether."
  8. ​More like we can mount flags and signals because those are viable in port.
  9. I tried that a few times it is interesting mechanic really, it mixes things up a bit. It very much favour US CV as oppose to IJN CV, because of the large fighter squadrons, since they can immediately turn around and engage/strafe back with devastating effect.
  10. No, it isn't; it is however in line with their earlier change to tier 1 in regards to making the game more "approachable". That is to remove any form or sort of choice that woulæd give you greater versatility, it seems the belief is that taking away options from the relative safe part of this of the game in regards to learning the basics. I am assuming it is the belief that if people master the basics, they will have an easier time transitioning into the more complex part of the game later (of course they totally disregard the complications from other ships etc. makes the step from 5 to 6 rather extreme and that tier 6 will have a field day even more than they already do against Tier 5s, again much like the Tier 1 changes).
  11. Honestly if the B hull doesn't work for you.. don't use it.
  12. am I the only one that thought, man I wish sounded like we were actually on the sea just like it did in the clip? hehe
  13. I find that the best division teams have no more than 1 BB or 2 DD and to avoid 3 CL/CA; it is not that other combinations can't work but merely that in my personal experience this gives your division the widest spectrum of options. If you are voice chat with each other, it can also be a very good idea to assign someone as the commander who takes up the job of designating primary targets, the plan in general and keeps an eye on how the entire battle goes and how the division can apply its resources best possible towards a team victory. finally, if you are not all of the same tier it is a good idea to make sure that the person of the lower tier understand the limitation of the choice he/she makes and that this choice can quite easily ensure that that ship will have a more supportive role than an active and aggressive role.
  14. The most demanding ships I played so far from 1 through 5 is as following: 1) Mikasa (those main guns...) 2) Ishizushi (mostly due to her outrageous visibility versus gun range and the somewhat flimsy armour) 3) Emerald (just not a joy) 4) Karlsruhe (haven't played her since before the buff sooo I have to place her on the list. However as she has been changed she comes in at 4 instead of 1). 5) New Orleans (I much rather play a Pensacola with NO matchmaking than the NO).
  15. for me the HMS Hood would be the dream ship next up, I would love to get my hands on a speed demon like Le Fantasque.
