    What Were Your Greatest Gaming Achievements Today ?

    it was a great first battle for today.

    Soviet battlesh... cruiser Kronshtadt

    i'm all in for a cruiser, but an inaccurate one? no thanks, if i want shotguns i'll play my tirpitz

    Is Minotaur fun?

    its an awesome ship, go for radar and not for smoke and you'll enjoy it even more. i have only one problem though, the second turret should have firing angles like the mogami. i mean it should be able to fire when it has just enough clearance

    mixing tiers

    i've been on the top of the scoreboard with my mogami while being the only T8 ship in the battle. MM decided that a T8 cruiser is equivalent to a TX DD so i ended up there. being bottom tier in TX is most of the times difficult, some times if the team works together, it just works

    Year of the cruiser when?

    i second the statement of @ImperialAdmiral that cruisers are often free frags. most of the time, i get targeted although i am not the nearest target and i'm angled. but that is the situation with cruisers, angling doesn't matter and after a few salvos, you end up dead.

    How would you improve the skill of player base?

    so a cruiser player will have to: aim carefully to avoid bounces or surfaces that can't pen/ can't set on fire advance very carefully because DDs will outspot you cover advancing DDs try to hunt DDs while watching his surroundings for enemy DDs / CAs look to the distance because sniping BBs will try to hit you, and they can over match your armour kite one BB but swing to avoid the fire from another one and be close to the enemy because you dont have the range, but get shot while moving to engage and to disengage at least now you know that there is a chance of getting close for a larger amount of time because of the poorer accuracy (which is buffed comparing to historical values)

    How would you improve the skill of player base?

    none taken mate, don't worry. what you say is true but we all play BBs from time to time. i'm a big sucker for secondaries and i tend to be more aggressive when in a BB (which results in intense focused fire). the problem here is, like you said, those who die their way up, and the fact that BBs are the most foolproof class in the game. nobody wants an unreasonable nerf to any class, because most of us play most of the classes. BalanceTM is something that has to be adjusted taking into account not only the objects, but sometimes the user also. WG should realize that a healthy game will make money, and will run for a longer time. forget new lines and shiny emblems for a moment and put those tips in the linup screen and in the map screen so that everybody sees them every time.

    change in battleship

    I've read before in a post that proposition. at first i thought it would be a good move, but then i imagined a myoko showing 2/3 of its side area to a fuso, because he was kiting a new mexico... we can all imagine what would happen if BBs had cruiserlike sigma and dispersion

    Greek Ships

    sorry mate, but the area is called Balkan peninsula. before the ottomans it was Byzantium, before that roman empire and things go on. boarders change through the centuries and that's why there are geographical names that do not include most of the time any state name. i do not want to appear offensive, but what you did was clearly on that side. back on topic, im sure glad that minor nations are considered by the creators of the game. besides a hellenic navy line would not work, every one of our navy's ships was bought from an ally, or was an already existing ship. having said that, the aforementioned vasilissa olga, the averof or the velos (yes another fletcher) would be nice to be in-game

    Finally got a supercontainer.....

    i even got flags in my Christmas containers !

    Greek Ships

    because the germans captured Vasileus Georgios and vasilissa olga did a good job with the allies in the Mediterranean

    kiting one BB makes you giving broadside to another. only one of them has to time his shot and 50% of your HP are gone. unless you think of man to man scenarios only

    change in battleship

    i know that there is no point in defending my point, but i was hoping that since the BB players wont change their tactics, at least at longer distances, the cruiser captain could feel a bit safer, but a lot more unlucky if he gets to eat the shells.

    change in battleship

    i'll get right to the point. i tried every class in the game, i suck in carriers, i get too aggressive in DDs and i get bored in BBs. CA-CLs though, it just clicked, daka daka, maneuverability and in higher tiers heal, what more could you ask? well, only one thing, since camping is the new trend (i cant say META because its not effective at all), i have one proposal: leave cruisers as they are (see no direct buff) since once you master the class you can be influential, but increase the dispersion (vertical and horizontal) of BBs in ranges over 16 Kms. bellow 16Kms, tighten the grouping of the shells to current standards. i believe that this will allow cruisers to be in shooting distance and possibly drive BB captains closer to the fight. some lucky shots will happen, but fewer, and the battles will be more engaging

    Greek Ships

    one interesting premium hellenic ship would be the vassilisa olga, british boat with german guns. it has that special flavor wg looks for in a premium
