    the "carry harder!" thread

    When you have the highest base XP (in a Yorck) across both teams, but the rest of your team is at least 1000 base XP below... :( Funnily enough the winning team's highest base XP also in a Yorck...

    Ships with no anti-aircraft guns.

    Ah, yes I still remember being blapped by a Sinop from 12km away while he was behind an island as I was approaching it in the Montecuccoli, trying to angle and use that island to make it harder for him. Even with the Russian dispersion he had no trouble finding the citadel, while my guns were tickling him (mosquito trying to sting a rhino).

    Montecuccoli: the floating disaster

    Use them to hunt other cruisers and DDs. SAP hits cruisers at that tier hard. Run away from BBs...

    Boots in COOP

    That is how Skynet comes to existence...
  5. Played both operations exactly once. Got 4 stars in each. I guess I got lucky with the random team I was in as it seemed that everyone knew what they were doing. Not really interested in trying either hard or super hard modes, even if I was in a division. The possible rewards are almost nothing. I think this year these operations are not really worth bothering with.

    Italian cruisers are intentionally that bad?

    Genova has currently lower WR than Emerald - that takes some doing. :-) Shame that you need to get to T8 before things get better. So much for getting more people to play mid-tier ships...

    ranked sprints

    Secondary specced, it is brutal. When I came across one that wasn't in my Charles Martel, it was time for BBQ though... It felt good in a bad kind of way...

    Kleber opinios

    It is commendable that people may not be looking at OP's stats, but in this case it is well worth it before making some of the throw-away comments I have seen here. Quetak clearly knows what he is doing in DDs and has been playing DDs of differing play styles quite effectively (wish I was even remotely close to those stats, and I do like playing DDs). Yes, it is true that French DDs are different, and by game numbers, he has played these the least, so it is possible that they just need longer to adjust to. Mogador is regarded by many people to be actually better than Kleber, and I notice you don't have that one, perhaps it would be worth getting it? Kleber was definitely nerfed fairly hard before release, while Mogador only slightly (they were over performing by a wide margin during test phases). To me advice by @Bowmangr makes the most sense.

    Clan brawl

    Totally agree, had a great time! Waiting time for the first battle was couple of minutes (around 5pm UK time), but later on, there was almost no wait time at all

    does the game secretly aim for the player?

    Target Lock is the circle that appears around 1 boat (typically the one your aiming reticle is closest to). The game automatically locks on, provided the ship is in range. You can override and lock onto another by pressing 'X'. I have had a quick look at a couple of your videos. In those, you do not shoot without target lock, apart from the video where you try to shoot at a DD in smoke and miss, until you come close enough that he appears (at which point target lock is acquired). I never disagreed that the game helps us all, that is what makes it less frustrating, as others have said, since it isn't meant to be a simulator.

    does the game secretly aim for the player?

    wows-numbers says the hit ratio for your shells is 24.93%. Those playing this game quite well sit at above 30% (I am not one of them). The game does lock target for you, as @ColonelPete explained, otherwise that ratio would be lower.

    Shokaku getting nerfed? What are they doing to the ship now?
  13. cmdr__nik


    Thanks, will try that @RedRye95

    Why of why do you think it is OK to have 4 BBs per side in a 6v6 format? Might as well just limit it to BBs only at least that way we might actually have a competitive mode, rather than the team that has better DD players, wins... Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    fps drops since 8.6

    I have had to decrease texture and shadow quality to get rid of the worst drops, but still get some drops (not as drastic) when zoomed in and there's a few ships in the viewport. I wonder if it is due to new lighting effects. It certainly doesn't feel 'optimised' like the patch notes say
