  1. Haven’t heard of anything about discontinuing the sale of Belfast. After all, it’s still relevant to the RN CLs and an espensive ship to buy. Don’t see why WG will throw away such a big fat juicy cash cow, given how it has behaved lately. For those that bought the ships on discount before, they will make an instant profit on doubloons from what I understand from the patch note.
  2. Get a refund and buy them back in the future when they are on discount?
  3. Already own the missouri and nelson is not really that interesting to me. I saved those doubloons from the summer sales and been waiting for spend them since :) Thanks for all the advice.
  4. the only ships i dont have right now are atago and kaga. I was thinking getting Kaga anyway and since I already have kutuzov, i dont think i will enjoy atago that much. But yeah those ships are definitely in my consideration.
  5. haha maybe one day when I am tired of this game
  6. Currently have around 29500 doubloons and 200k free xp sitting in port and want to take advantage of the discount in game. But not sure if I should just get the premium ships or covert some free xp and unlock an entire tech tree like the soviet DD to khab. Already have quite a few premium including saipan belfast missouri kutuzov.... As to my play style i quite enjoy CV and cruisers and do well in both. I was considering Kaga and Leningrad but I already play well in saipan and if I unlock the soviet DD tech tree, Leningrad is not that useful. Any advice? Thanks
  7. When MK meet t10 matches, which happens 80% of the time and 100% when u play during off peak hours, do u still consider it OP? I dont think so.
  8. smoke

    Well, soon it will be pretty obvious that BBs are OP.
  9. Anyone tried redeem another code after u already redeemed one? It just says invalid.
  10. For you to be able to CARRY potatos, you need to be able to DELIVER effective strikes, for u to be able to deliver, you need to have planes, for you to have planes you need to protect them from enemy. If you take strike, you can attempt to do dmg hoping that enemy CV is a potato. Otherwise, you can't strike cos he will eat all your planes, you can't spot because he has fighters, and you can't protect allied ships when they are under air attack. Strike is as situational as AS, depending on how you view it.
  11. The only times I play strike loadout in any US CVs are In coop games vs bots or those PVE missions. In random, hell no. No fighters = no air control = loss. Yes, you might find yourself lucky facing a potato and doing a tons of dmg in one match. But, you are relying too much on favourable MM and any competent player will effectively kill all your striking power with acceptable losses or damage to allied ships. Please do your future teammates a favour, and stop using the strike loadout. Imagine you play in a BB, CL and getting nuked by enemy CV because your own CV player, regardless his skill, is a strike US CV. Or keep playing strike and let me farm more xp and credits from strike cv players like you :)
  12. lol yeah buff it pls, make it even better than Belfast since all the BBs got buffed lately. We need more fires. What at do you all recommend on the ships upgrades tho? Especially between aiming or AA? Naturally I opt for AA but, most cv player will avoid MK nowadays and a little more accuracy always help.
  13. Saipan is not OP, not in the hands of average joes. It is only considered OP if it's in the hand of a very good player AND WHEN YOU HAVE AN INCOMPETENT CV PLAYER ON YOUR OWN TEAM.
  14. with the update Nurnberg is stock equipped with IFHE so you can save the 4 points for something else. Scratching my head as to what ships to pick... Graf spee has the best hydro in the tier plus heal so it is viable for detecting torp and DD for the team (equipped with RDF), but the armor is not like the Cleveland's. Nurnberg is a DD killer with the right captain and hydro but for it to work, it has to get into very close range.
  15. Anyone considering taking either ship to the upcoming rank and how would you spec your captain?
