    My very first squid BB :)

    I was thinking about that. My gold standard it's Bayern for better and for worse. I have almost all my modules sorted out but i'm undecided about two of them. the first doubt it's between the acceleration module and the damage control 2 At first sight JB is fast enough and turns well, but it's kind of slow from full stop to any speed do I take it for helping dodging torps when i'm bow in? or do I take damage control 2 to help to take it on the chin? my second dilemma it's about main battery modification 3 I will gain 12% on the reload time but i'll lose 13% in turret transverse speed. that will put JB's turrets as slow as my Bayern's turrets and I always found those a bit for the slow side. (42.9 sec). And besides I have AR and the consumable to cover that. What do you think?

    140 k +51k = 191k 191k+ 10k (if you play all 10 days ) = 201k you are 27 k short What about your clan buildings ? I think there are building that gives coal bonus (small) and maybe you'll be lucky with the containers RNG. :) @rnat @DFens_666 Thank you. I checked and I have Honore laying around doing nothing. Regarding modules... the new one that increases the speed of other modules , worth it or not?

    Do you have any coupons left? from 228k it will be reduced to 171k Do you have any steel? it can be converted to coal if you lack coal . in a ratio 1 steel = 10 coal check the armoury I think that will happen automatically if you have enough steel. 10 days ….2 containers a day + 200 from daily missions (the easy one) it's 1k a day.

    Which mistake (ship?) may I ask? Nah, at least that's out of the way now, the most I did with them up until now was under 3k The build will be for random/sprint. Yes, I'm doing a lot of co-op games, i'm getting a lot of new ships lately, Moskva, Akizuki, JB and more are coming soon but there's no Ops for them, the captains are low and I don't want to take them to PVP in the current state. I'm leaning towards tank build too. perhaps this. But what about the cvs? From what I understand JB can have a very stale gameplay, it can switch from being very fast to be a "road block", it can be very susceptible to planes attacks, so, what about BFT and AFT? perhaps trading CE and PM for them, and let the concealment module mitigate to +- 13.4 km? It would be harder to disengage and the all thing would be very dependable to the 15% faster RP, turrets included. Or this is a bad idea?

    So, I decided and I went for it. Well, the BB line that I have more familiarity it's the German line, but from what I saw this will be as good as the Germans, the brawling potential was exactly what attracted me, what in the end beat Smolensk to the finish line (deep down I always knew that I would end up with JB, ticked all the boxes, I only wanted to be sure, so, I waited) Now, I know what this ship can do, I fought against it plenty of times and I have a general idea of the ship. So, Build suggestions? thank you.

    Holy s*** the Shchors is (a bit too) good!

    What did I said about Moskva that's so outlandish? What I said about Moskva still stands regardless of the mode I play. And Moskva isn't the focus in this discussion. This all thing started because you apparently prefer Chapayev over Shchors and that's ok, you are within your right. But that second paragraph was a bit iffy. At first sight, chapayev and Shchors are practically the same ship but in the "field" the first it's noticeable slower and more sluggish than the last, and then it gets a radar. Chapa works as good as Shchors when it sticks to HE spamming but at the same time can struggle for range. And because of this, mainly for this two short comings, Personally, every battle I've done with Chapayev I wished for Shchors. Donskoy it's a ok ship but has it's issues. Making me wish for Shchors in many situations. That's why Shchors has a 19 point captain and Chapayev don't even has a captain Overall. Shchors it's the squishier of the three, but it's fast or even the fastest and more agile of the three, great guns , and can shoot the furthest of the three. In dd threat department None of the three has a clear advantage over the other, yes two of them have radar, the other no. one feels very awkward, the other has a lower ROF and slower turrets. I didn't expected this, to be honest, but was what I found out after playing Donskoy. For me, Shchors it's the best RU cruiser to be vs t5 or t9.

    I only said that Moskva can handle radar much better than t8 and t9 (trade offs) the Comparisons i made was only between Shchors vs Chapayev vs Donskoy. IMO, Chapayev should never had radar in the first place.

    093, Moskwa researched but not yet re-aquired

    What? I thought those ships would be pulled out with 0.9.3 patch. when is the next patch?

    No it's not, for me at least. I tend to favour quick rudders and speed over small turning circles. (the only exception being Nurnberg). and you can amplify those few meters closer or further away with speed changes. If I get both of them ,great, if not then I go for the first. I don't like cruisers that take forever to start moving whatever way. Angling with some ships it won't work, you have to dodge or...Bummm. Trying to brawl? with either ships? only if you want to fail miserable especially vs a Lyon. I can't complain, in fact ,Shchors is one of my go to ships. My first and last line of defence kind of ships. Better not to play Moskva outside co-op,for now. Because reasons like. - I just got it, I only have 26 games with it. - I have PT and AR and that's about it, it's all my 4 point captain can muster at the moment. But going to ranked with this "build" crossed my mind (for the steel) but then the common sense prevailed. So, eventually. But from what I saw up until now playing in other modes it's a given

    Smoke cruisers always have better concealment than regular cruisers was what i meant. So comparing smoke cruisers to regular cruisers, yeah... yeap, we are saying the same thing. having a quick rudder means, the ship is quick to respond but once you commit to a turn you can spend a lot of time depending on whatever turning circle radius the ship has. When you add distance and shell travel time to that initial respond , you have time for those small corrections to your direction to be enough for incoming shells hit the spot where you should be if you wouldn't do it. I didn't say that, about brawling BBs. But Shchors has that potential, Chapayev don't have, and for the t8 that it's more critical because when it goes closer to the cap because of that radar, that situation may arrive. when a BB is about to appear from behind a island e.g. Shchors has an insurance policy, Chapayev it's screw. Again, that's pretty common not only for Shchors but for all low HP cruisers. Listen, IMO, having worse armour it's not the end of the world, Nowadays there's no much of a difference with high calibre guns that exists in the game, even 27 mm it's not what it used to be. Guns are good, speed it's good, and the extra range can be very useful in certain situations, the rudder it's good too. I run RPF + Hydro, so, the radar it's not a "must have" for me. T8 and T9 short comings and downsides are not the end of the world either but they nag me a lot more and no radar in the world worth that. With Moskva all changes, it's tanky, it's fast in a strait line, has wonderful fast shells, with a decent reload and they hit hard, the radar doesn't interfere as much with the ship itself as in t8 and t9. Lazo it's the so called smokeless Kutuzov, right?

    Holy s*** the Shchors is (a bit too) good!

    Helena, dallas and so on have poor range Fiji, Leander, Huang He have excellent concealment better than this only DDs, and they are not regular cls, they are smoke cls. we are basically saying the same thing, having a quick rudder helps a lot to dodge and duke incoming fire, but that it's not turning. RU ships do not turn well. yeah, radar is very useful against that DM at 17.5 kms ,stationary, behind a rock and you can't do anything about that, with Shchors you could put the spotter plane up + 19 kms of range and ,at least, you could make him move. But i can fix that. I'll pick the hull that has the spotter plane. Shchors and Chapayev are basically the same ship on paper but on the field they are not. Chapayev it's slower ,while turning can go as low as 28 /27 knots spending more time doing it, Shchors drops as well but later and recovers the speed faster. Shchors can sink a BB with torps in a pinch, Chapayev can't and can be up against BBs with larger HP pools.so... IMO Radar hurts more than it helps Fair enough, but for a regular DD (not kitakaze and alike) it's better to think twice about that. Even Atlantas, it's better to think twice about that. Shchors can tear apart an Atlanta.

    Holy s*** the Shchors is (a bit too) good!

    Just wait a second... Concealment it's ok at 11.6 kms normal for your typical CL, while manoeuvrability it's not stellar it's not bad either , depending what you want to do, for turning it's bad but for dodging and duke, it's not bad if combined with shell's travel time. Now you can just stop. Nah, if you mean because of the radar, nah, it's not worth it. Chapayev it's a pig of a ship, slower to respond than Shchors, it's painful slow , has less range (main guns), has less torps and deals less damage 60.400 k vs 53.799 k Chapayev it's like a worse Shchors with a radar, a 20 second radar, that's iffy (you can insta detect ships, i'll give you that). And if you Equip RPF + Hydro in your Shchors, chapayev becomes even more iffy. the lack of speed amplifies the "turning like a brick issues". I didn't like it. every single low HP cruiser can be gunned down by a DD. Donskoy it's better than Chapayev and it's enjoyable , but has it's own issues, slow ROF, slower turret transverse speed, with Donskoy you can lose the ability to insta detect ships but it's ok overall, can leave you wishing for Shchors in range of Main Guns and ROF in some situations. Shchors is faster in everything, shooting, turning, reaches further than t8 and t9, has more stopping power and RPF + hydro can be a substitute for radar, and while supporting a dd can be deadly for a dd, CL, CA, or BB
  13. I already said this but... Probably , one of the few differences between me and @NothingButTheRain is my inaptitude to setup proper coms. So, we went two different paths. He went division, I went solo. The hiding behind a division phrase was in a context, a very particular context, people defending UF hard mode while only doing it in a division. (not him necessarily) This two things made us having divergent P.O.V. Starbuck and others aren't convinced about the economic Nerf in Narai. I don't mind, if that means no more UF hard mode kind of ops. Regarding signals, yes I do use them (at least in Bayern, just don't ask me which ones) but I'm not aware of them if the ships has it or not I don't have a stock of signals that I can use regularly, I have to pick the moments, what I can say, the last of those moments was in Halo ops where I piled up near 1.6 million elite XP
  14. It's not like that, at all I don't want to give the impression that I'm against divisions, I'm not. you are entirely correct to choose with whom you do operations or if you do it alone but there were a lot of guys defending the Hard mode, back in the day , most probably they played in divisions, no way they played it solo and maintaining that opinion and i bet in that time almost all knowledgeable players, entered in divisions to do UF, in such numbers (I believe), that was impossible to a regular player to do it. Oh yes, there was and was not only UF, was every other ops. But UF was taken to the extreme. Soon after Narai was released, topics about How much I farmed started to appear, with crazy numbers, then they took it out , I think, Narai was released again after the UF experiment, new bots to try to slow the farming but I think it didn't work because it was too aggressive and not very efficient, division continued to farm and regular players not even a "bone" would take out of it. Narai ended up to be pulled out again to rebalancing, this time economically. IMO if WG take this path ops will be farmable to a lesser degree but farmable and will be more enjoyable at the same time I've heard rumours about NA server where WG released those psycho bots in co-op
  15. Wait...what? how? one thing has nothing to do with the other. I don't put any signal most of the times in most of my ships and I still want to win No. UF hard mode, was much harder than what it used to be, so, the op regulars player took refuge in divisions in a much larger numbers, draining, not necessary good players , but more important, players with a good understanding of that particular op from the available player base, leaving the few who remained with random teams very frustrated, I stopped playing that monstrosity for good. Mainly Because, after 1 game I had enough it didn't pay off either of you won it or lose it, too much effort for what it was That's easy to say (what's in bold), when hiding behind a successful division. And yes, you don't need 19 point captain to be good in operations, normally you can play ops with stock ships and low points captain and be good even with random teams... until that thing called UF hard mode. But play it with a random team and see how miserably you (you as in general) fail even if you are extremely good at it.
