    Good DD players - Asashio - yes or no?

    Emmm... that slogan: Let's battle... I really think it focusses more on the ship online game thingie... and maybe, just maybe not so much on a war of roses in real life divorce situations, but what do I know... anyway, thanks for the Jerry clarification, there was a moment when something inside me almost broke and shattered...

    Good DD players - Asashio - yes or no?

    Just my few cents on the topic: She is a fun ship, for sure, but things don't get much more into the subjective sphere than the question if a ship is fun... Can she perform? Well... thing is, if your opponent has 5 BBs captained by... shall we say, casual players, you have a field day, it's pure carnage. However, the more competent your opponent gets, the more you will wish you took your Kagero instead... I had loads of fun with the ship, but the 1-dimensional torpedo power will cost you exactly these games where you really needed to carry and just didn't have the tools for it... @Yaska and Shin: How much for aunt jessica's nude paintings? :)

    @Yaskaraxx: I humbly have to disagree here. I bought the ship blindly because a friend of mine was so hyped about her... just had 2 full sessions (bit over 40 solo battles) in her and she fits like a perfect glove. The torpedoes are just plain awesome, they are fast, she has 8 of them, they are damned hard to spot... yes, the alpha could be a bit higher, but with that reload (61 secs with expertise) I very very often get the follow-up flooding or set the guy on fire with 20-30 secs of smoke firing afterwards. As for the guns... 'tis true, the AP is more situational than one might think, be it a cruiser or BB, just spam that subpar HE when your target is angled... at a rate of 4 shells every 3.6 secs (BFT) which gives you a very real chance of setting fires. The 4km ship-spotting hydro makes you a very annoying enemy, almost impossible to torp, almost impossible to rush (she WILL have her torps back up, count on it!) and denying any comfortable smokesitting for other DDs (bit of a psychological thing here... at least as I perceived it). Yes, she is a big girl for a DD, like all the German ones are... and that sluggish speed can get on your nerves... she is however surprisingly agile for a German DD, which really took me by surprise... Open water gunboating CAN work situationally, though sometimes I thought those CLs, CAs and BBs missed because they couldn't believe I moved so slowly... again, perception... I wouldn't recommend it... For me, she works, she just performs astonishingly well up to the T8-T6 bracket. Two things I feel I should mention: 1. She hates CVs, a good one finds you alone, you're toast, no little us dd evading like crazy, he will get you! Don't wander off! 2. She feels like work, you will need to think about positioning, level of aggression, the way and time to get in and out and all that awareness stuff when driving that boat, she is lots of fun, but she's no comfy boat! Oh, I'm a DD main, so I felt right at home, I wouldn't recommend her for new players, just too much stuff to monitor simultaneously! Quick edit: I checked my numbers: 42 solo battles, 78,5 winrate... she DOES perform, wow...

    Do we already have a BB hardcap of 5?

    Ah ok, has that been announced anywhere? I must have missed it, then... Was just wondering why the Bismarck-mission-BB-explosion receded to almost acceptable levels from one day to the next... Anyway, thanks for clearing that up Greetings, Mechthart

    Do we already have a BB hardcap of 5?

    Good evening, title says it all... During recent play sessions (40 or so battles) I noticed that regardless of the queue distribution of any class I always end up in battles with exactly 5 BBs per side... This is no discussion about the problems with the BB-heavy meta we encounter right now. I just wondered why I often see 30-40 BBs, 3 CVs, 2 CA/CLs and 7 DDs in queue and get precisely 5 BBs per side. Has WG introduced hard caps without notice? Btw, I'm a DD main, if that adds anything to explain that phenomenon... Greetings, Mechthart

    MM Will not allow a win Duca d'Aosta

    Hmm, as I was part of that match... What exactly would you prefer? Introduction of skill based MM? I mean, if Random is Random you will always get those matches from time to time... Everybody hates it when (despite their best and pristinely competent efforts) they just can't get a victory out of a match because the other flank just collapses within 3 minutes... Please specify, would you want every match balanced according to player stats? Greetings, Mechthart

    Update 0.6.3 Feedback - Bug Reports

    1. DescriptionGuns and torpedoes don't fire (left mouse button doesn't respond), cannot enter menu while in battle (ESC button doesn't respond), cannot get into overview (right mouse button doesn't respond)... consumable buttons, ship engine and rudder control and gun sights are still working, bug lasted for the whole battle 2. Reproduction steps Happened after the first salvo in battle (HE), was switching ammo type to AP after the salvo, first battle on a new ship (D. Donskoi), was playing in a 2-man-div. (Mechthart/gtathens), tier X game, domination, Atlantic... I have no clue if that helps... encountered the bug only once, a division mate described the same bug (different tier, map, mode, ship, but still 2-man-div. and first battle in a new ship) yesterday, he could solve it by mashing left mouse, right mouse and shift... well, I couldn't... EDIT: One more thing, the mouse cursor was different when loading into battle (before pressing start battle, the ship list) and it felt like something was off when loading into the match... took a bit longer than normally to load as well 3. Result Guns, torpedoes, menu are not working 4. Expected resultGuns blazing, fishes in the water, menu minions standing by for my divine orders 5. Technical details Was sober when playing

    Is Wargaming thinking about long-term support for this game?

    Quote: No. I don't see the need for it now, possibly later. (by that time it could be too late) Just a little remark concerning the selection offered: If you really want an unbiased opinion, it's a bit of a nono to enrich one answer with negative annotations of doom and gloom... Either do it in a fair way or don't do it at all, please Greetings, Mechthart

    Guten Abend Wenn dir die CVs gar nicht schmecken, wäre vielleicht eine Minekaze oder ähnliches eine Idee... Du wirst ohnehin recht häufig in T7-Gefechte (Nagato, Gneisenau...) gezogen, wo 2 sukzessive (low tier) Torpedotreffer auf ein Schlachtschiff nicht mehr gar so viel HPs abziehen. Dadurch, dass du deine Dubletten einzeln feuern kannst, kriegst du eher die Möglichkeit, gezielt nach dem Achievement zu jagen... Viel Glück, Mechthart

    Reported for no reason

    Just my 5 cents on the topic: OP, just move on, we all observe this special kind of behaviour... a lack of understanding of the most basic game mechanics coupled with quite an unhealthy dose of Dunning-Kruger, not to forget the self discipline of a slightly below average chimp... Not much you can do about that specific incident, buuuuuut... judging from my limited experience, there is a strong correlation between those angryspecialkiddie™ outrage reports and my-mommy-hasn't-taught-me-any-manners chat vomiting. Why not just make it your very personal policy to report everyone that cannot stick to basic rules of written conversation and use... hmmm... the i-word, the f-word, the r-word... for misbehaviour (duh). It won't prevent them from reporting people, but at least we don't have to see their mental feces in chat as often... and hey, maybe, just maybe, someone might even take the hint... Greetings, Mechthart
  11. Don't want to sing the same song as everyone else... but, alas, here we go: If I had the Udaloj fully researched before the update, I think I can expect the Udaloj being fully researched after the update. When I spend doubloons to promote a ship from stock to top once, it rubs me the very wrong way when you deny me the benefits I PAID FOR.... buuuuut you simply forgot to implement that compensation, right? Greetings, Mechthart

    Oh NO! He's naked!

    emm, I'm just here for the "naked" part... Did he leave already?

    My first forum post Sadly, on RL... In short: Remove that atrocity Longer version: Remove that atrocity fast
  14. Same problem here... tonight I experienced the crash-at-the-end-of-battle phenomenon, got a notice twice that I will be redirected to another server due to an ongoing maintenance procedure... and now I can't log in due to technical issues, hmmmm. Playing in Germany, btw.
