    How to Warspite?

    Thanks! I installed Spotter Airplane Mod 1 on in and it handles better now - i am an average player and rush too early in, bad habit. Then somehow i am focus fired most of the time (T8 ships want to eat) So i will try shooting from range at the beginning and move in with the rest of the team later. Maneuverability is good, speed is not so good, but it seems i have to try repositioning myself more carefully. What i did not really understand that in QE i managed to have 50% rate with 10pt captain (4pt skill was fire prevention) and the handling is very similar, except it has 17.1km range - so it seems to me that with Warspite i just stupidly rushed in to get in range...

    How to Warspite?

    Hi, I do not feel how to Warspite - i have 33% winrate this moment. When she is in T6 then there are a few good matches, but at T8 - armor is not really relevant even with angling - 16.3km range is just garbage - 15s fire immunity is way too short - i tried it as a trainer with 6 and 7 point captains and it turned out to be a disaster. My current conclusion she is not good as a trainer ship. All Youtube videos show her in T6 matches that you can not get nowadays too often, but she suffers in T8. 1. Should I give up on her as a trainer? Seems i need a 10+ point captain on her? 2. Should I install Spotting Aircraft Modification 1 to increase firing range for longer? Anybody has experience with that build? 3. I tried both builds with Damage Control System Mod2 and Steering Gear Mod2 but the success rate was not really different - any advice?

    T-22 seeking advice

    BTW, I also have Gaede with a T8 captain. 2x4 torpedoes work much better. 150mm guns can outgun pretty much anybody. So just enjoy the morbid fun in T22 till you can

    T-22 seeking advice

    I have to agree with one of the guys about T22: "So the t22 was buffed in the update...and it still sucks bad. However I think it falls into the so bad it's good category. I have fun playing out of some morbid curiosity. " 1. It has only 2x3 torpedoes and your invisibility range is short even with CE. So you have to plan your exit in advance. Usually it still works just to launch the torpedoes before the enemy ship is even in range, make a turn and smoke up. 2. Turning circle is bad, Smoke is short. Just as your life if you are not careful. Run back to your allies as soon as you are spotted. 3. Guns are not bad, they have 360 turning, so you can aim fast, but DPM is low. Do not try to shoot other DDs than IJN destroyers. They spot you first but be assertive and they will run away. 4. More often than not you end up in T7 matches. Also with lots of French cruisers in the game it lowers the chance you meet the juicy fat BBs and increase the chance of being sank in the first 5 minutes. It is a playable ship but you must be very conscious what you do. You are in a support role. You ambush whenever you can. You team up with RU and US DDs. Capping must/can be done very carefully - read the list of enemy ships and make a decision. Do not try 1v1 with US or RU DDs. I use torpedo build and it quite often works. I have only a T8 captain and i really want to see if CE helps - this is the morbid curiosity... You can find more threads on the NA forum for some reasons. This is a very good one: http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/113278-german-dd-builds-for-t6/, copying here: Gun/Concealment Build for Gaede and Z-23 w/ 150mm Gun Option: Preventative Maintainance (1pt) Last Stand (3pt) Demolition Expert (6pt) Concealment Expert (10pt) IFHE (14pt) Radio Location (18pt) Priority Target (19pt) Focuses on staying in concealment for torping and mostly using guns on Cruisers/BBs for consistent damage and fires when able. Radio Location helps avoid anti-DD ships that will demolish you up-close (Benson/Fletcher/UK CLs/Ect). Gun/Concealment Build w/ 128mm Standard Guns: Preventative Maintainance (1pt) Last Stand (3pt) Basic Firing Training(6pt) Concealment Expert (10pt) Advanced Firing Training (14pt) Radio Location (18pt) Priority Target (19pt) Focuses on using guns at mod/long range to harass targets before fading back into concealment. 128mms with BFT are better at skirmishing with other DDs, but you'll be outgunned up close by USN and at range by RU. Concealment/Torpedoboat Build (Almost requires a 10+pt Captain to be effective. Recommended on Z-23 and higher-tiers only): Preventative Maintainance (1pt) Last Stand (3pts) Torpedo Armament Expert (6pts) Concealment Expert (10pts) Torpedo Acceleration (12pts) Radio Location (16pts) Superintendent (19pts) Guns are a last-resort or for use on helpless targets only. Stay between your fleet and the enemy, supporting with Sonar to torp-spot and Smoke to hide allies while launching quick-reloading torps at enemy formations and using Radio Location to track and/or avoid enemy DDs.

    Minekaze as gunboat is total joke

    Sure. Still not sure if there is a more optimal captain skill set for new Minekaze and Hatsuharu. Does expert marksmen make any sense to anybody, or should accept the fact that these DDs won't be able to turn and shoot at the same time? I am not suggesting that WG should increase the turning radius to 2km though to match with turret speed...

    Minekaze as gunboat is total joke

    To be able to use(??) Minekaze, what captain skills you would suggest? I think about three tier2 skills: - Expert Marksmen to speed(???) up turret traverse - but the gain is minimal, so i feel this is just a waste - Torp AE - still seems to be useful - Last Stand - seems to be very useful Tier3 is Superintendent.For tier4 maybe DE would be nice. Tier5 doesn't make any sense, you can't be stealthy when you fire your guns. To grind Minekaze you seem to require premium smoke to hide so often, so this whole gunboat idea at tier 5 and 6 looks to me as money makers for WG.
