  1. Ise the BBV in Blitz

    Just give the Ise as a normal JPN premium BB as an alternative for the Fuso. Worse turret setup, but slightly better in other stats.
  2. What is it with the Fuso ?

    German dispersion never seems to stop Tirpitz’s and Gneis to snipe from max range... To counter incoming fire they also have that extra HP captain perk... They also prefer to fire their 4 km range torps from 3rd or 2nd line with no enemy closer then 15 km.....
  3. What to do...

    But is Alaska better then Krohnstadt? I feel some bias against the Krohn even if we have no figures regarding Alaska. For me its ok to spend on Krohnstad, but it would be sad that when I spend my fxp on krohnstad to see afterwards that Alaska is released as an fxp and krohnstad gets the Musashi treatment and also becomes available as a coal reward...
  4. What to do...

    I will have the same choice soon. 40K fxp short from the Krohn. I have all the former fxp ships (Mo, Nelson and Mushashi) and fxp grinding for the Krohn would be a logical continuation. But since the introduction of coal i found out (after spending 750K fxp) that Mushashi was also purchasable with coal. Since i have all the coal ships (Salem not interested in) my preference would have been to buy the Mushashi with coal and the Krohn with FXP. But WG being unclear at that moment prevented this. Now with a lot of new ships incomming i tend to hold my purchase before i get the info. I want to know what i can do with my coal and fxp. Which ships are going to be fxp, coal or both? Its in the best interest of WG to be clear about how to purchase a free ship so players can set their grind strategy, dont feel upset afterwards or not forcing people to hold down on their currency because they feel unsafe to spend it.
  5. Strassbourg Tier VII French BB

    WG has to sell JB, cant have a free silver ship at tier 9 actually being fun to play do we?
  6. Strassbourg Tier VII French BB

    Sems people missed the “sarcastic” label.. Just a bit upset about the Alsace nerf, the JB fancy module package and now this tier X “Alsace new style” thing. Then atleast create a real ship premium like the Strassbourg with some reasonable (and not too over the top) buffs. So many real ships to explore as premium, why these non existing ships?
  7. What to do with all this coal?

    I am sitting on 140K coal and 650K FXP and am very reluctant to spend any. For coal there is only the Salem available as a ship (since i have all the other current options) which i dont really fancy. My first reaction when WG introduced coal was like: damn if I had bought Mushashi for coal (instead of fxp) I could have had Kronhstad already. Now I am like: so many potential new ships with both FXP and coal at a level that you can purchase some new premiums! But i would like WG to be fair and informative about the required currency so that we can make good choises. Choices like do I buy my “ship A” with either coal or FXP so that if can buy “ship B” in the future with the other currency.
  8. Strassbourg Tier VII French BB

    Since WG is so inclined to enrich the French line with the Jean Bart and now with the “Bourgogne” as a tier X special after just nerfing the old Alsace to the ground i am awaiting with joy and anticipation the release of the Tier VII Strassbourg (as a buffed sister of good old Dunk). Since Strassbourg actualy was a real build ship (unlike Alsace/Bourgogne) it should even be more reasonable to release this ship then the current to be released French abominations.... The Strass was build as an improvement to the Dunk with slightly better armor so to make it tier VII sellable: *Improve armor so it can bowtank up to 459 mm guns *Improve sigma to 1.8 - 2.0 *invent some magical future AA upgrade *increase HP (easy to do, tonnage was higher then Dunk) *decrease visuability akin to some of the recent proposed BB’s so it also has that below 11KM CE. *reload 24 secs * at least give it 2 extra consumables * give it acces to the tier 8 module (akin to Belfast) Profit! (And WG does not even have to nerf the Dunk)
  9. ARP ships -- do they need to be gimped?

    Lol, i never knew what the Arp girls actualy say. Is there a translation option available that i missed?
  10. And Dunk is crying in the corner. Worse reload, gunsize, crap aa and concealment. And the benefit of all guns in the front went out with all the tier VI with 15” plus guns...
  11. ARP ships -- do they need to be gimped?

    Not only that, her voice is atleast quite easy to listen to. That 20 Russian kills though...
  12. ARP ships -- do they need to be gimped?

    I agree, even if free the most bare camo (without xp or silver bonussen) should be applied. As an paid Atago owner the free Takao did iniitially ruffle my feathers but giving it basic camo would be fair. Although the ships now provide ideal JPN captain training even without camo modifiers... that 300 meters, why not WG.
  13. Alternating more resources with supercontainers. Before i was taking flags but i had some supercontainer luck so i gave them another try (and failing again). Now 100k fxp away from Krohn so inclined to focus on getting fxp now through more resourses but gettting 2 supercontainers with 50fxp still makes the choice difficult. Coal will only get me the Salem, which i dont really fancy...Coal income is quite high with current sharks/eagle missions. Oil is a nice side benefit.
  14. Adding H.M.S Repulse?

    I wonder what wreckage a tier V BB with 381’s (even with only 6 barrels) can do to her tier IV and V matchmaking victims. If WG doesn’t repeat the Mutsu “garbage” shells trick that is. And dispersion cant be the worst with only 6 shells in flight. But still believe that both Renown and Repulse should be tier VI, directly comparing their Elisabeth class sisters trading gunturret (and armor) for speed. But that speed will cost them a lot of firepower vs their slower counterparts while still not being top tier in speed tier VI and below. I still think both at tier VI wil strugle against their speedy counterparts like Kongo, GC and even Dunk. The new Prinz Eitel will ruin them even more with powercreep.
  15. Adding H.M.S Repulse?

    Sorry can’t have HMS Repulse at tier 5, she will take away the rightfull place of HMS Tiger, the most beautiful BC that ever sailed the oceans :) Although Tiger can be downgraded to tier IV i think she is a more natural tier V. Although i wonder if she would stand up to f.e. Kongo. I will opt for a tier VI Renown instead. She will not be that good, but cant be worse the the current Dunk.
