    I dont understand this freaking game

    in a cruiser it is about positioning and not being the damage sponge. Either you are exposing yourself as the target too often or your team is leaving you out in the open and letting you be the target. I don't think you can alter this problem too much, because it means playing in such a way as to make your team be the targets instead or change their goals. Best bet is just do what you want and a win is when you say it was not the win rate. ok thats my opinion of my games, now Why do you think the team is letting you down? eg in the game just played the cruiser said BB stop making me tank as the 2 BB ran away and up from the other sides cap leaving him up front alone and under fire. I felt the cruiser was spot on and reversed course on my cruiser whilst under fire and hid behind the retreating BB until they changed course to attack the other side. It was a very very close win.

    What is the point of Battleships?

    ok I accept your apology that you were not talking about the point of BB in the game, but were poorly attempting to be helpful and off topic.

    I was not seeing any advice on BB, I was saying I can't see the BB having the intended role right now and pointed out what I felt were two current flaws in the method, that was the debate I intended, why BB are failing or why they are not... I posted here as inexperience not an expert for gameplay topics, I was not really expecting the shut the debate by blaming the messenger somehow. A common problem in WG forums.

    no, you earned no respect when you started to swap the topic of what were battleships for and made it about my miss rates. emo kitty

    on the whole it doesn't seem to matter if its all or one gun firing, as even with one gun you can see the shells are already wide apart, sometimes one higher and one lower so as to straddle a ship rather than hit with both.

    another one of the leet crowd this time erecting strawmen about my cruiser to belittle a person learning a gift the got, when the OP question is about battleships. just FYI I watched some YT advise about cruisers and hiding, and had been practicing that.. getting as close as I can using the land cover.. of course I will get to sink faster that way... the N Mex, again its a case of I am hitting far more than the stats suggest. eg I fire a round but only 17% of the shots hit where I targeted (at long range), the rest land in the water. There will be times at angled shots I miss, too much behind, but not by the second salvo as I correct, and its back to hitting the target with a few shells the rest land all around in the water. Even when the ship is head on charging it is like 50% of shots will always land in water and 50% on target. That is a game issue of all the shells not going where I aimed. I guess your answer to that is never fire salvos and the front guns should be aimed separately to the rear ones. Don't broadside is the only comment that makes any sense from you, why not add hide as far away from their ranged shots as that is what most seem to do at the start?

    What is the point of Battleships?

    Not at all, because I am hitting them, just not with all my shells, and this is the point people like you ignore as you are out to silence the debate or improve the game mechanics in any way... leetism in its finest.

    poetic licence, but that really is a cruisers role, superior suppressing fire power, that is why it should fire faster than any other ship in the battle I've been 1 shotted so to speak (1/3 health left) by others in a BB, can't say I ever 1 shotted in a BB. Damage is the thing, the shells fire all over the place. I just think right now this defeats its role of a long arm fighter when most shells miss it seems. For game equality a lower hit chance at close and medium would be balance, but as DD are meant to be ninja close in BB need a better auto defence in close which is the secondary guns. Until then, no role no point? A line of cruisers could be better than a slugging brawl than a line of BB?

    well every time and I mean every time i find and show where a CV is on the map, ALL who are remotely near (except a very few players) always head off to kill it. Near a cap, no kill the CV, its like a red flag to a bull so much so I think twice now about exposing them on a map. its not that, its that I think they are missing a real role. Making furthers range less dispersed and better close range 2nd line defence would be a step in changing that.

    well you are not bursting my bubble because that is exactly what I'm talking about Destroyers cap, least that is what I and others use them for, and try to sniper at close range but at that I'm not so good as I miss so much. Cruisers, easy to be destroyed I've found but they have the power of overwhelming fire power. (two ships with reasons to get them sunk) But Battleships are not scary enough to make the other side fear them and want to rid the map of them. Expose an Aircraft carrier on the map and the pack go crazy going after it. (easy kill?) That is what they should be doing to BB I think, get it sunk because it is dangerous, but other ships are far more feared.
  11. So far with US and Japanese ships up to level 5/6 they seem to do the least damage, partly because they take absolutely ages to reload or miss at great ranges and they die far too fast in close up brawls for secondary guns to take out Destroyers and Cruisers that close.

    they help farm credits or being T5&7 help on a few tasks, least that is what I use mine for But when you look at the lower levels ones were battleships and the higher ones cruisers I think it tells new players how the game difficult is ranked by class

    Play role rant

    A Forum Contributor from Britain would be a FCUK then? I don't know the etiology of the abbreviations. I just figure you can't say C for Carrier and C for Cruiser and C for the C cap so C for Cap and CC for Cruiser makes the two different and CV means what, why not Aircraft Carrier... bloody sailors being awkward and naming left right port starboard bullfinch

    Play role rant

    If they aren't defending the cap from being retaken what is the point of having these slow lumbering tin cans? The CC and DD should be the damage dealers, whilst the BB are the bouncers saying back off go away 'you shall not pass'. They should be firing from when they first acquire a target until they get to where they need to be. If that is not the cap area, home or away, where is? If you are playing as a DD in a BB you are playing in the wrong ship.

    Play role rant

    I am getting frustrated enough to start ranting about how BB play. Putting the roles simply A DD role is to sneak and either ambush or cap A CC role is to support either the BB or DD with added firepower A BB role is not to hide at the furthest range and miss the TARGET because of dispersion. A BB role is to keep the enemy away.... AWAY from the cap... and the only way to do that is to be in the CAP Once BBs are in the cap then the DD can go assassinate CVs, and other warships, CC can use superior firepower to assist the fools getting too close to BB. Rant over, post to tell me why I am wrong and why BB should be firing nearer the spawn points or chasing after CV's instead?
