    Newport Station Operation - flooded with potatoes

    I do cv on this Op. as well... I try always to use this tactic, and on most cases, we got a win as a team even if that mean I am on bottom of the tab; but the feeling I helped the team its much better then to be an dead weight... True, cv .s got nerfed to hell, but what we can do ?... adapt at, or cry... I choose first alternative...

    Newport Station Operation - flooded with potatoes

    I will use this occasion to ask ALL cv players on this Op. to realize some basic things ( decent cv players already knew this...) since so many cv . s landing in this particular Op. are more an punishment for the team then a real help; First of all, we do all agree when a team fail to stop first wave , even the second, not only you say " ciao " at an 5 star win, but most probably you will loose also . That mind stopping the buggers before entering base its THE most important thing, at the beginning. 1 - your biggest contribution its to SPOT - bots come rushing at full speed, from random directions (waves can come center, right or left) - a bb even a cruiser positioned on opposite flank can do nothing if the enemy is spotted way to late, at only 8-10 km of perimeter. The result is you have 6-8 bots in a flank rushing 1-2 ships who will have a hard time killing them before the bots enter perimeter. 2 - focus on damn dds ! You have rockets, bombs - let the hell out torps for now ! dds will spot and keep focused that team member who was pushing ahead to much, and he will die fast bc the bots have laser aim, and he cant go unspotted since the dds bots are stealthy bots ! 3 - Focus damn dds bots right on start when they spawn a lot ahead of the bbs and cruisers and you can strafe them at will with no fear of retaliation ! Minutes later they will get the close support AA from cruisers & bbs and will be much harder to kill ! 4 - Again, focus damn dds immediately - you will slow them down, giving extra time to your team mates to position better, you will give an extra chance to that potato who advanced to much ahead to return and repair without being killed, and more important, you will help a lot yourself since they will not enter perimeter so fast, if not at all. 5 - After you dealt with dds, or slow them down, you will notice the cruisers bots will accelerate letting the bbs alone - now you can use torps if you wish to deal damage at will on lone bbs ! 6 - And dear cv skipper, use more then a brain cell and DO NOT make a drop against a bb bot if you see an friendly dd already launched torps on that target ! Think at the greater plan, your little pair of torps will do much less damage then the dd torps, that is, IF you manage to hit the target, but the bot will start turning hard when you attack, and he will avoid also your team mate in dd torps. The result is instead of a dead bb you will have, best case, a slightly damaged bb , and an team mate forced to run away or even killed by that bb. Choose your target with an open mind, try to be an part of the team not just another selfish potato , because even if you do 10-20 k extra damage at the end, you still will loose the match, screw the team, and screw your own credits, since the reward for a loss its most of time negative credits. But if you really help your team to win, like some decent cv players here, you also will profit at the end.

    True, cv damage nerf its so obvious in Op.s, I never saw an cv on top 2-3 score on Op., even good players struggle, cruisers avoid easy air drops, the british cv its so crappy, best thing a cv can do is to spot and to burn with rockets those pesty dds who rush with bow-in...

    I will say, at each 20 -25 games, you get a decent team, who do not camp inside base, and follow those (so simple, indeed...) instructions. But first days those 20-25 games were 100+... and frustrated me like hell.

    I am happy I used my coal & a coupon to buy him, its an "made 4 Op.s" ship Last game I got 6 cit.s with HE from 12km on those T4 cruisers rushing at start : I just plant myself perpendicular on their path, open fire at 13km, and manage to kill 3 of them before they got close. Its a great advantage to put IFHE on this boat, since she has the right perfect caliber : 139mm, where you get maximum pen - 29mm - that is, you will pen easy cruisers decks and get citadels. At least, I get that vs T4 cruisers... And AP will do nice vs them, even at 7-9km, if they offer you broadside...

    they react always at air launched torpedo (cv) but much less at dd torpedo, reason why cv.s ruin most of dd game-play on Op.s...

    Indeed, and its much faster with the speed boost, and those guns....I love them since first shot ! dakka-dakka

    true, my 5 stars come after 22.00h (gmt) also... hours when adults are home, after an hard day at work, have diner, then enjoy some wows with a beer... and the kids are in bed , letting the PC.s on the fathers hands

    My highest wining rate was on cruisers, ( Lander was a beast) ; before 8.0.1 cruisers have the bigger impact, but now with the bots new codding (laser aim , I got deleted, in a Mutsu, by 3 successive salvos from Izumo at 20+fraking km !!! - ALL SALVOS were cita hits - its so fraking ridiculous how accurate are the bots now...) so in a cruiser you will get perma cita by anything, all bots now are using AP and an instant switch to HE if you angle, so surviving in a cruiser is much harder. But now Leander place was taken by dd.s, with better results. As an bb, you will need to deal with tons of perfect aimed torps, HE spam and sure the boss fight on final, when Izumo can crack you easy from 20km... (just happen to me); CV.s are insignificant, in over 100 Op.s of Newport I play over the weekend, I never ever saw an cv shining, best players may reach an top 3, but very rare. On the other hand, in a dd you will do the bigger dam, best chances of survival, you can easy kill the Izumo, and, thanks to smoke, you can hide when things become hot... Perth perform also very well, (is an bigger dd in fact ) and I saw some Dunkuerque also doing nice, bow tanking, but overall, a team with 2 decent dd players (without cv, cv more ruin the game, since most of time they ignore the dds and try to torp cruisers and bbs, most of time with pathetic results, and on mid time they ruin all dds drops once a bb bot will ignore your dd torps but will maneuver like UFO.s when a plane drop torps.. I have many, to many lost drops because of potato cv players who attacked my targeted bb with seconds before my torps will hit, making that bb not only avoiding all his 2 little torps but also mine 6 or 9 much heavier torps... In fact, a team WITHOUT cv have a bigger chance at 3-5 stars then a team with cv... that is my personal experience, at least... I only got 3 times 5 stars, NONE of those games with an cv in to the team, but MOST of my losses were WITH cv.s on team... To conclude, try an stealthy dd with premium smoke, fast torp reload, or an gun boat with smoke... I even saw Farragut.s doing great , since they have almost twice smoke duration an can "cook" targets until they come on torp range. Hatsu, Shino, Fubuki - all perform great, pan asian dds also, but avoid the Icarus - one of the worst dds there, bad torp reload, pee-pee guns, bad stealth, bad speed... I never saw an Icarus doing well here... My favorite ship is a french gunboat, Aigle, with an 15 points commander, 6,8 stealth; Great torp reload, fantastic guns, and like all baguette boats, great speed with booster; Its like an Khaba at T6. PS - also Nuremberg ( with B hull, the one with 2x more torps) do very well:

    I am an part of a 3 ( !!!) members clan, all old dudes like me, and most of times I play solo.... clan/non clan, all matters nothing, but, this, is a heavy truth: " What happens the first 4 minutes will indicate whether they are utter worthless noobs or worthwhile players. "

    A single dd, ANY type&nation , can delete the Missou instantly IF.... if the player position himself, on time, right behind that rock where Missou turn and start killing&ramming (yes, the bots now ram ! ) the transports. Its the classic dd ambush "at the corner"; I do that with an sadistic avenge now each time when this Op. rotate, a pay-back for the pain he inflict on me .... One can easily put all torps on his belly from 2-3 km, with almost no risk at all; But this week operation its considerable more harder, since Izumo has a very strong AA and secondaries, (T9 vs T6 its normal to bring a lot of pain...) , and if you have the bad luck to be on a team with cv, he will avoid madly any torps, including dd torps, turning at full speed... Worst, you meet, sadly, also some (very...) toxic players, who not just start insulting all, but, also, since they are frustrated and not very skilled, die fast then start filling the chat with all imaginable insults... Instead of taking the challenge as an "fire test" and learn to improve their aiming, positioning, etc, they react with negativism and insults... I really miss the fact are no game-mods present on this Op.s.... so at least, even in a humiliating defeat, we still can have fun and an positive atmosphere...

    Most common mistake, who 9 of 10 times lead to a crushing defeat, with Izumo parked near your team cv, making all planes smoke and debris before they even can form-up in a squad, is when peoples let the first wave ( yeah, those pee-pee T3 cruisers ! ) breaking the perimeter. I have my load of such games, usually when I take an bb and I spam in a flank, and the first wave spam not on the middle, but yes on the opposite flank. In a bb you cant get in position in time, so you are almost useless, and the rest of the team do not bother to rush to that flank in time, so 1 bot sometimes manage to get in before get killed. Short time after, you are simply swarmed with dozens of bots coming from all directions, bow-in, full speed, and the Izumo boss on middle... You may kill a 4-5-6 of them, but in short time they get near shore, all auxiliary ships are deleted, then land buildings, then game over. Fast and clean win for the bots.

    Lol, I remember some weeks ago, that Op. who have the convoy to protect, and spam a Missou at mid-game; I was in a Fiji, on left flank, at 16km of Missou, ( I was going after that nasty cv who if one do not kill him in first 3-4 minutes after he spam, he run out of the map) so, there I was, thinking I am in no danger, ship full HP, the rest of team 5 km ahead me, on mid map, all open targets, all at 11 km of Missou, then booom ! I got instant deleted ! Yep, the mf Missou bot , seconds after he spam, target me ( the most distant target ! ) and with a single salvo he deleted me ! I was full of rage atm, you can imagine... Later, on the next days, I did watched other guys, on flanks, also on cruisers, getting deleted by the same bot, but not as far away like I was... Damn, very few players are able to hit a Fiji at 16km like that, and that bot do that on regular basis.. Believe me, I started to fear the bot, each time when he spam and I was on cruiser, no matter the distance, I was carefully to put a rock between me and him... And lets remember, bots are like sharks now in Op.s, if you are hurt, if you are bleeding, ALL focus on you, ignoring bigger & easier targets closer and instead trying to finish killing you...

    That.s true, fully agree with you, its a lot of pain and some Op. get you almost nothing credits, or even you end up loosing money...
