    CV Rework - the other Elephant in the Room

    The Producers is a 1967 American satirical comedy film written and directed by Mel Brooks and starring Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder, [edited] Shawn, and Kenneth Mars. The film was Brooks's directorial debut, and he won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. (Wikipedia) The main theme of the plot is that the producers of a Broadway musical realise that they can actually make HUGE money by sabotaging their own production - so the comedy revolves around their attempts to make it fail. The Producers = Carrier Rework ???

    Don’t buy PEF - she sucks hard

    @wilkatis_LV Thank You! Good reply! I've been trying these items, and agree with you 100%: - Usually keep your speed up - Keep wiggling a lot, similarly to how you would do in ships like Nagato - Angle against AP, you are absolutely able to tank it. Don't go bow in to it, this isn't t8+ - Dropping speed + turning makes you lose speed insanely fast. Use this to dodge effectively I've not tried a captain with concealment skills yet (used a 19 pt brawler), but will do so. Thank you. - Never underestimate concealment builds regardless of what else you are going for These don't work for me: - Don't bother shooting BBs waterline (main belt) past 13km I only ever recall getting one citadel (on a Vanguard) at 5/6 km. Forget it unless you are point-blank range. I find I'm better off trying to hit the upper hull and superstructure. Even then the rewards are low. - Cruisers can be citadelled at any range I make cruisers and DDs my main targets and get patch results. Yes, a few citadels but the dispersion has been so bad that I think that wargaming are taking the pish with me. The problem for me is that PEF seems so weak offensively. It seemingly fires marshmallows and has awful dispersion - never mind what the stats say about these items. (Sometime "real life" seems better than stats - *cough* Imperator Nikolai shell grouping *cough*) Defensively, it is a competent ship with good AA and better speed than most at the tier. I truly believe that the skill ceiling for this ship is very high, and to do well you need a long battle where you can use the weaker punch of its guns to do damage over time. It's a "Death of a Thousand Cuts" ship. Random battles only, maybe - not Ranked, Operations or PvE.

    Don’t buy PEF - she sucks hard

    I'm rubbish in all tier 6 battleships - but why am I so much more rubbish in Prinz Eitel Friedrich? I am not imagining it. I just need to look at my stats for evidence. Taking Average damage for example. My best damage dealer is the Japanese Battleship Fuso. Give it a value of 100. My next best ships get a value of 92 (i.e 92 HP of damage for every 100 dealt in Fuso). These are Mutsu and Queen Elizabeth. (The list goes on through Bayern, Dunkerque, Warspite, Arizona, Normandie, New Mexico.) In last place at an index of 55 is Prinz Eitel Friedrich. That's only just over half of the figure for my best ship. I don't get this variation on any other tier/ship type. For an average player it's crap. @wilkatis_LV you are a very good player and have recounted that you yourself have not been suffering in the Prinz Eitel Friedrich. How about using your considerable brain power in trying to help us (those of us struggling) to help why we find this ship so very difficult? (Without the juvenile cliches such as "LTP" or "git gud", please)

    Then Tier 4 ships will need rebalancing also. ..and then tier 3 ..and tier 2 ..and tier 1 Or OTOH Wargaming could fix this putrid matchmaker of theirs that seems designed to cause frustration for the average joe, and give the better players the opportunity to wave their willies saying "Oh! it's no problem for ME!" [Smug grin] and trot out glib slogans that sound more like they come out of the mouths of adolescents than grown ups ("LTP", "git gud" ) And yes - I'm burnt out if you hadn't noticed. Merry Christmas!

    If Wargaming are going to leave Tier 5 matchmaking as it is, then they should: a) Introduce HMS Exeter with the stats as leaked b) buff ALL THE OTHER tier 5 cruisers to make them closer to HMS Exeter And once they have done that they can do a similar exercise with tier 5 battleships.
  6. Finished the marathon yesterday. I already had Dreadnought because I bought it in a package with Vanguard. I got a port slot, 3 point commander and 3500 gold (in lieu of Dreadnought) Very happy with that. A nice reward for just playing. Some of the other Christmas missions will be a problem though. The time-gating isn't so severe as previous years, but real life will still take a big chunk out of available time.

    Fara on carrier rework

    This is the most important warning of all IMHO. Skilled carrier players have reported back to the forum and pointed out that this does not solve the current issues with CVs. In my view the only people who can rework CV play to the benefit of the game in general are these same skilled carrier players "Experto crede" as the Roman motto has it - Trust the Expert.
  8. Very true! But an awful lot of coal for ships that I will only play once! (Both ships are fatally blighted for my taste - though JB does have the advantage that it is a French ship)

    No USS Alaska in update 0.7.12?

    I trust you judgement on this T0by (as in many other things) I actually have Musashi, and I am sure the JB is strong but the thing is...... I hate the playstyle (All front turrets, god-awful dispersion and MBRB). I'm just hoping that some ship comes into the Arsenal that is attractive enough to spend my current coal mountain (never mind the additions from the Snowflakes event)
  10. I know of at least two previous schedules for awarding steel to premium ships, and the estimate were revised DOWN in each case.As the announcements came in I've been keeping track of the figures on a spreadsheet. Plan #1 would give me 6900 steel. Plan #2 would give me 5850 steel. In the live plan in 0.7.12 I can get 4350 steel. ("Snap! @Aragathor) As for Coal, I can get 67,500 to add to the 330,000 I currently have. Nothing desirable to spend it on in the Arsenal. (Ships that I'll never play. Got camos, captains, upgrades etc)

    Thanks for this - it helps me plan my 0.8.0 activities in advance. Stage #1 - Spend more time with family Stage #2 - Spend more time with family Stage #3 - Spend more time with family Stage #4 - Spend more time with family

    What he said! Though I was talking firmly "tongue in cheek".

    You make a very good point! May i just sugest a slight modification though, please? ".... somebody downright refusing to play Ranked and Clan battles ..." should just read ".... somebody downright refusing to play Ranked battles ..." Don't forget that some players just are not good enough to make the Clan's CB team.

    Yes - it is something for nothing (well, playing a few quick coop games, and ruining it for the regulars) Thank You Wargaming, and Merry Christmas! Where they could have improved things in the Snowflakes event is not raising expectations in the first place. I know of at least two previous schedules for awarding steel to premium ships, and the estimate were revised DOWN in each case.WG should have started LOW then raised the amounts if necessary. As the announcements came in I've been keeping track of the figures on a spreadsheet. Plan #1 would give me 6900 steel. Plan #2 would give me 5850 steel. In the live plan in 0.7.12 I can get 4350 steel.
