    Game & Balance Improvements

    i don't think so at all. She still has the deadliest torps at tier10, simply because they are invisibile. Also, you can still much gun fight in her as proven by players i've seen in matches lately. I am of the strong believe that this is much a sentiment like the old shimakaze, where she was fully capable of gunfighting but people would simply refuse to do so for some mental block.

    Game Mechanics

    Oh sure, considering i have 3 times more cruiser games than BB games i clearly want BBs to blap everything left and right, definetely a BBBaby. i'm sorry, if he had the time and chance to shoot you, it was not a well executed ambush, period. I keep seeing zero point in your answers if not for accusing me to be BBbaby. Do you have a point to make, or you just wanna keep going? I made my point. Now make yours. I maintain that above 10 km BBs should not be able to blap DDs, but under....no.

    Did i ever said anything as such? I don't think so. The goal however should not be to make all classes idiotproof. It's ridicolous that a Montana can't punish a shimakaze (or whatever) making an error and getting spotted so close to her, honestly.....Again, IMO it should be distance based

    The fact is the following: Above 10 km, it means you are sort of getting "sniped" (sort of) from a BB. Below 10 km, you are not. Below 10 km you should be taking your chances when getting near a BB. I am disregarding completely the lower tiers. The game should not really be balanced around them, especially considering the BBs at low tiers are already rather ineffective. As it is right now i feel DDs can get away way too much with stupid moves.

    Game Mechanics

    BB AP vs DDs: I think the general concept is good. However i believe the application of it is wrong. My believe is that the mechanic should be governed by the distance. ie: above 10 km, only overpens, below 10km full pens possible. We must not , in anyway, promoto the stupid yolo moves. The new Snowstorm. I honestly don't really like it. For a number of reasons, but the biggest is that it really hurts your vision (meaning eyes)

    Game & Balance Improvements

    I am noticing the following changes: Matchmaking: It is noticeable. I have been in a lot more of tier 8 matches as well as tier 9 matches than before. A bit worrying for T7s to run into so many T9s, but ok the rest EDIT: BB AP vs DD section moved to the "Game mechanics" topic. YY: I don't have the ship myself. It was definetely OP, so a nerf was needed. Don't think all the crying on the forum is justified. I think a lot of it is the result of people losing their OP tier 10 DD infavour of a more balanced DD. Shimakaze: I don't have it either. Hoewever in renunions i had the change to try it before the buff and honestly,playing like my gearing or z52 (sort of) by contesting the cap, it felt really ok. HE had already good alpha damage and guns had good arcs. The 15 torps also make it a scary opponent to face on a short distance. Now i had not an opportunity to try one after the buff but i played against it and i must say it is seriously a scary encounter , blowing all that damage every salvo. I ultimately think the issue with shimakaze had nothing to do with the guns itself but rather with the stupidity of the people playing it around the map edges, never shooting dds. If a buff was needed in that sense, i think a turret traverse increase would have been a more appropriate buff than an increase in HE alpha. Now a word out of this specific patch on a balance issue: Stalingrad. Nerf it. Seriously. It is stupidly OP. It does not need improved autobounce angle.

    School Kids

    Best part about it is that on average i consistently found 40+ aged players to be the utmost donkeys in this game. And then again which stats is the OP talking about? The one he is hiding?

    New Map ?

    this came out some months ago to mee to for one battle....at first i thought the same: "new map"....but to be honest since nothing went by then i know think its just a glitch.

    Waterline discussion

    As for 2 BBs in Clan Wars: Please no! We don't need anymore "blap all cruisers out of the water in one shot" like it is in random. The nice part of CW was actually that. It was mostly action between CAs vs CAs and DDs vs DDs. As for inter-server CWs: that is really a great idea to maximise experience within a team. As for BB pen on DDs: guys be careful what you whish for! We already saw the scary dmg numbers a single salvo of HE from a british BB can do to a DD. They do that cause the basically almost always have HE already loaded. Further more, we already have enough *unintelligent* people shooting HE in high tier BBs for no good reason. This will actually give them an excuse such as "but hey dude! what if a DD pops out right now!? I have to be ready!!". As for CVs...I don't play them so i can't really speak for them. Still, what i see is that the skill gap is huge right now and really makes games go one direction or the other. However, it would also not be fair to level it to a point where basically great CV players are on par with bad ones. In the end being a great CV player has required them time and effort and it should be somewhat rewarded. I love the new stuff incoming such as the new permanent campaign to get Halsey and so on. Also is a very nice thing that they will complete the gunboat IJN DD line.

    So, let's see what i'm doing wrong now....

    Not that i really care all too much for the BBs , but i suffer from NCitis too on my Iowa...which makes me even less interested in playing a class i'm not really interested to start with....how did you improved out of that bad illness? :D And yes, ofcourse you can't carry them all. Otherwise there would be players with 100% win rate, which is not the case. It is also true that sometimes you CAN make a huge difference. Now my personal goal is to increase as much as possible those times.

    So, let's see what i'm doing wrong now....

    Just for you to see, when i'm not in a terribad mood i play somewhat decent. And more than anything i DO support my DDs as much as i can, (I am uploading this for the pure purpose of demonstrating that the original post replays are actually me in a "BAD!" way.) As for Colonel Pete (which i just found in a match), it is true what you say. However i noticed about a 4% drop in my high tier WR lately and from that the discussion. From 50ish to 48 with lows of 46. 20180407_172458_PGSC110-Hindenburg_19_OC_prey.wowsreplay

    So, let's see what i'm doing wrong now....

    True. Totally true. It comes down to me as being the type of guy that will try over and over again to reach the objective. However, i should really stop and do something else if i am in that state. (again for the team damage, this is the first time i do it on purpose. I am not proud of it, but please also consider that another player actually decided to sink the same guys after my volley..frustration was high. But i'm not excused!)

    So, let's see what i'm doing wrong now....

    I would first like to point out the following: i have PURPOSEFULLY uploaded what i regard as the worst of my possible gameplay. Therefore i expect you to understand this. I could easily upload the "best of" compilation, but it would not be of any good to the topic. Also, please notice the state of mind in which i basically entered those games...i was so already frustrated that the moment i saw my team positioning go to heck, i lost any decent will to put up a fight. As for those who took the time to whatch the "worst of" compilation: thank you. I would like to reply to a couple of points in my excuse, this not meaning that the vast majority of what was pointed out is incorrect. As for North, i actually was the only one to try and support the grozorvoi that tried to go for the cap where i spawned. I was not all too effective, however i was still the only one (that i can recall) taking shots at the gearing. As for okinawa, the dude in the replubique spawned at C and purposefully sailed all the way to A to gain as much distance from the actual fight as possible. I don't buy a single penny of "he's actually capping" simply because he went where he was as far away from any major red force as possible. I would have never allowed my self to criticize the gentlemen had i not 1st encountered him already and saw him snipe from 20+ km away and second saw him pushing A for the sole purpose of "lets take my BB to what is regarded as the worst cap for a BB to go to" simply because all the enemy BBs are somewhere else. Now, for a second or two : i am here to seek and get criticism, however some of the above comments are pointing at "you are the one who did everything wrong in teams that gave you so much support!". I am the first to point out these are some of the lowest low of my gameplay. However it seems to me like there is a lot of failiure to realize the rest of the team positioning. If its true i can support DDs and take some better positioning, it is also true that , on North for example, i was consistently the most advanced ship of my entire fleet (dds excluded) while the rest comfy hanging the C line. So please gentlemen, while you tell me what i could have done better (and again, there is a lot, considering how badly i was more or less consciously playing), don't forget one thing: i can be the hero of the situation and i'll sink in 3 seconds. I don't have the HP pool to stand 6 ships targeting me in an attempt to single-handedly support the DD while the other stay as far as possible. One thing is to say "perhaps you could have moved in this direction and that direction", one another thing is criticizing me "blindly" for not staying front line while the rest of the team was simply all relax and sniping. As for Sleeping Giant, you are right. This was the very first time i shot at allied on purpose. Am i proud of it? nope. Do i regret it? Nope.. However that incident does nothing but highlights how frustrated i am right now of these battles where my team does nothing but blob in one place or simply stand as back as possible. I could actually upload a replay from yesterday where me, a hindemburg, had to play the dd role and phisically go and cap because the dd thought it was a great idea to rush a desmoines 1 minute into the match. So please gentlemen, figure out i am purposefully uploading THE WORST of me to understand how to at least try to save such situations Furthermore: I clearly was sarcastic about the ibuki winrate. Comeon i can't be so stupid.

    So, let's see what i'm doing wrong now....

    Thank you for your answer. I smoke in the mino. I really want to try it out with radar but i have the feeling that it would put me out of the fight so much earlier... My playstyle is that of : i am a cruiser. I will do all i can to help my DDs get the caps, play the objective. I will try my best to defend my BBs from enemy dds and CVs (although i never spec for AA since there are not so many CVs around). I genuinly try to not "YOLOO!" but as of lately i found myself being consistently the only one understanding the concept of "support the objective capture by the DDs", which has often lead me to be the most forward spotted ship. However i really struggle to simply camp with the rest of the B/H line holiday makers, simply because i struggle to accept that "we won't even fight for map control, lets handle it to the enemy and get pushed all within one square"
