    Submarines: How to Play

    I mean the subjects that WG like to hide from, you know like why are soviet ships magically better than some foreign counterparts (so much for your "historical accuracy" WG), why can't they balance anything. just a shame, this game could be very good but unfortunately Wargaming is involved..

    GREAT beginner

    Hi, I could not find an "official" forum like this one, but WoWs Legends (the console version) does have a subreddit.

    Yea, it looks like a fun ship to play (Yamato) but I don't know if I would quite 'get' the positioning with it. I know you shouldn't snipe at the back in a battleship but with the shape of Yamato's citadel it's also not an ideal brawler (or at least it seems that way) Medium range? Bow on? Thanks for the reply btw.

    Yea, about permanent camos, I have almost finished that anime collection which gives the Yamato K117 camo, that may be useful.

    Old NavyField player needs advice

    I'd also like to mention, when you reach the correct account level and if you have a tier 6 ship, you may want to consider playing operations. They give decent rewards including 10 point captains for a few nations, premium time etc. As for DDs, there are some brilliant lines that serve different purposes. Russian/USSR DDs have good guns, fast top speed, poor concealment and their torpedoes are short ranged. American DDs are sort of "hybrids", they have decent guns with fast reload but the shells are quite floaty, making long range gun duels quite difficult against anything relatively fast. They can't stealth torp* until tier 7. Nice team players because of their long lasting smoke screens. They also have nice AA for a destroyer. *Stealth torp means you can launch torpedoes outside of your detection range. (For example, detection range of 6km with 8km torpedoes) British DDs are similar to American DDs as the British DDs are also hybrids. Guns are quite floaty just like the American ones. They can single fire torpedoes which if used properly are amazing. Some of them have really good concealment, for example the Lightning (tier 8 UK DD) can get something like 5.5km concealment if built for it. From tier 6 (I think) they get hydro so they can spot other ships and torpedoes whilst in their own smoke. I think the higher tier UK DDs get a heal too, it's a consumable that slowly regenerates health points whilst its active. German DDs are kinda like hybrids too. They have decent reload speeds on the guns and torpedoes but the HE (High explosive) shells don't do much damage, their torpedoes don't do much damage but have nice reload speed. These also get hydro from tier 6+ IJN/Japanese DDs are split into 2 lines. The one that ends with Shimakaze is the torpedo focused line and the alternative line is focused around guns from tier 8+. IJN torpedoes have very high damage and are decently fast but they are detected quicker by enemies. (Shimakaze has a 20km torpedo option but they are spotted from 2.5km away, allowing for a lot of time for the enemy to react and dodge. French DDs are similar to Russian ones. Very gun focused, extremely fast (some of them reach over 50 knots) The French DDs don't have a smoke screen. Hope this helps!

    Hi, I've been playing my Chapayev for a few battles today and I keep losing battles. I mostly do average to good damage in these battles and I very rarely get a profit of 100k+ credits. Game I just had in my Chapayev: I have the Infernal permanent camo on my Chapayev. Do I need premium account to get a reasonable profit from tier 8? Thanks.

    Is the EU Server down?

    Btw, anyone who gets disconnected at the battle results screen at the end of a battle, WG Support made a patch here: https://eu.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wows/hot-issues/31870/

    Idk, I just looked at the WorldOfWarships twitter and there's nothing on there about this.

    Maybe, Although most things seemed normal for me when I could play a few hours ago. But yea I agree, this is not good for premium members.

    Hi all. Thanks for the replies. I first assumed that it was because of the release of Update 0.8.11(?) but the down-time for that was some hours ago.
