    "full speed ahead rear facing attack strategy"? "rear arc assault"? "Chase from the front attack"?

    ok, but in terms of ship destruction it was one all. And it seems the better tactic was the run away at 6-8km for an easy win, rather than the 'charge at the cruiser' tactic which seemed like it could have gone either way...

    so after all that it was 1-1. :-) it seems like the best strategy is for the BB to run away, keeping the cruiser at secondary gun range and just keep pounding it.

    As a newbie can I just ask a few questions about things that have popped up during this thread? How / where can you set up these 1 on 1 battles? (post #105) How / where are you able to look up other peoples stats? (post #121) Where is the "training room"? (post #78) What is the "wargaming TS"? (post #23)

    ok, so we've gone from BB wins every time to crusier wins every time. not helping!

    ok, thanks guys, attack don't retreat. And yes I was serious - don't forget not everyone is a hardcore gamer, some of us just play for a bit of fun, maybe 1 or 2 battles when we have the time. I don't usually find myself in this position (1 vs 1), but it's happened a few times.

    What is the best course of action for a BB when you find yourself in open water being chased by a Cruiser and no-one else around, at near max range? The cruiser has a much higher rate of fire and will be pounding you with HE leading to near constant fires - so do you try to run away, firing with the rear guns when available, hoping you score a lucky hit or slowly wear them down - or charge towards them (hoping it's not one with torps) and hoping your secondary guns can do some damage to them to make up for your slow reload times? Or some other tactic?

    Battleship players: what is your problem? Why won't you tank?

    I agree. Many of us are just occasional players with no real idea what we should be doing, and just sitting back watching everyone else going off in different directions and just following the ones that look like they're least likely to get slaughtered. Perhaps if you're unhappy with everyone doing their own thing the best course of action is to chat at the start and tell people what you're going to do, and what you want them to do - even if it's as simple/obvious as "DD's and CC's take out the enemy DDs first, and cover the BBs while we all pile in to A (or whatever)". Then maybe (sometimes at least) you'll get some support instead of people doing what everyone else seems to do (go around the outside lobbing shells at distant targets). Currently most games seem to consist of either no chat at the beginning or just a suggestion of which area to capture. Usually the chat doesn't start until later in the game when the 'good' players start whining that everyone else is a bunch of newbies/idiots who are losing the game for them. Well ok, that may well be, but maybe next time give the 'newbies' a plan to follow instead of just letting them go off randomly and then complaining because they didn't all follow you (because newsflash - I have no idea whether that BB ploughing straight down the middle is some military genius who needs my support, or some total noob with no idea what he's doing and who's going to get himself slaughtered by DDs in the first 2 minutes).

    Rubbish fighters and multiple launches?

    No, my question was (for example) "can I launch a squadron of fighters, and then launch another squadron of fighters while the 1st is still flying about, if so how?"
