    HMS Hood play advice

    It's a damn frustrating ship to play. I like it because of its speed, its turret rotation and the health pool. But the guns are very very trollish. One game I felt like selling my Hood as it seemingly couldn't hit a barn door at 3 feet. Next game I got 3 devastating strikes from 4 salvos. You have to support your teammates, kiting away when you're outnumbered while keeping your guns firing. Don't broadside as you will get punished. Unlike most other UK BBs you do actually possess a citadel. Just general battleship advice really. The Hood performs best at mid range for me, and you can punish lightly armored ships (even destroyers) with its short-arm AP shells. Just do not camp at the back of the map and snipe with it, it just doesn't work at all. Currently I run PT, JOAT, EM, AR, Superintendent, CE and FP on my Hood (my Lion captain).

    What should be my next T10?

    Minotaur hands down. Edinburgh is alright, Neptune is strange...neither here nor there...but Minotaur is amazing. My second favourite ship, after the Scharnhorst. I play it mostly with smoke, but occasionally I use radar if I feel brave. There are a lot of radars around nowadays, but if you play it right (use islands, don't sit broadside on in the smoke, anticipate torpedoes and enemies triggering radar) you can be super effective. The guns are really really good, and you can surprise enemy cruisers who think "Oh look, UK CL = easy citadels" and unload AP at you, while you bowtank most of their damage, using your superheal to good effect before cruising past them to fill their sides with citadels (or torps). Playing Mino is about quickthinking and planning, but also patience as well. You can rape destroyers as well with ease if you surprise them up close, or even from range.

    BB, the new Camping Class ?

    I don't camp in any battleships I play. However, I do run concealment on every single one (except the Bismarck, and I actually do find myself forced into being further away from the enemy than I would like in this ship because of it). I need the concealment to either disengage easier or not be spotted and focused to death by HE spamming cruisers and destroyers, there seems to be far more gunboating/HE spamming destroyers than there used to be. Higher tier IFHE DDs melt BBs, which does make battleship players more liable to sit back and camp. British battleships have not been good for the game in this respect either. Yes they have good concealment and those super heals, but you get pulverised by HE spammers if you are unfortunate enough to be spotted in open water. I found this when I progressed from KGV to Monarch, and then more so from Monarch to Lion. I'm much more afraid of a smoked Harugamo raining hell on me than if a Shimakaze/Gearing/Yeuyang is lurking nearby. You feel pretty powerless to do anything at all against the gunboat, whereas you can dodge torpedoes with enough insight and WASD hacks.

    I love the Scharnhorst, probably my favourite ship right now to play. Just had an awesome game in her when we were looking at defeat with just me and a Nagato against 6 ships, even though we were ahead on points due to caps. Thanks to me rushing B cap and running into 4 enemy ships at very close range (thankfully none were destroyers) we ended up snatching the win.

    What's the most Karma you've had?

    Currently at 31, which I believe is my highest. Not something I focus on, especially as I'm only too happy to vent at my team if they deserve it.

    Poll: How many UK DD missions did you get?

    I bought 5 of the premium containers, got nothing. Got Icarus mission from my 4th or 5th free one though, and just got the Acasta mission yesterday through another free one.

    CV Rework Discussion

    Has anyone summarised the changes somewhere? I'd like to get an idea of what's being altered without having to read through 12 forum pages, or re-watch an entire stream.

    Super Noob

    Dude, honestly. Why would you bother complaining about something as trivial as this? Whenever I'm feeling bored enough (or trying a new ship out for the first time) to actually play a Co-op battle, I'm actually pleased if I see that some of my team are playing like complete potatoes as Co-op takes no skill whatsoever, and with battles being short generally anyway it's nice when your team potatoes against the AI and leaves you with something that may vaguely resemble a challenge. You should be thankful for this reason (you've got less teammates to killsteal from you) and for the fact that this guy isn't ruining random battles in a T7 premium. Also, on the subject of stats...I don't really you're one to talk if I'm being completely honest?

    Back-to-back bottom tier carrys! The Scarnhorst is an amazing ship, finally got to grips with her after a tricky start. I think I've passed 100k damage and 4 or more kills in my last 5 games in her. Legit I needed 1.5k damage to sink the enemy Nelson for a kraken, but my salvo left him with 2 HP! And a decent enough game in the Southern Dragon.

    Undo my decission

    Don't do it again. I once (when I had less than 200 battles under my belt, across both of my accounts) wanted to play with my friends, who had picked the Graf Spee and a Molotov. Since my highest ship was the Texas at T5, I chose that (thinking because I was T5 we'd be guaranteed a T5/T6 game. Sadly, this wasn't the case. T8 game, with numerous T8 battleships and cruisers. I spent most of the game providing long-range supporting fire, and although I finished within the top half of my team, I decided not to make the same mistake again. Seriously, even though you might be having fun, you're an encumberance to the rest of your team.

    Abusive or insulting players

    Just ignore them. If you don't retaliate they've achieved nothing more than making a fool of themselves.
