  1. So if I got it right, You can distribute 21 points in each class (21 for DDs, 21 for CAs, 21 for BBs) for each captain? And you can use this captain without retraining only in Premiums? So lets say I use a commander to a Fletcher. I have to retrain to use him on Des Moines, but I can use him free on Alaska? And all that skills for these different classes are pre-set by me earlier? I still dont get the point here on doing this

    Black Friday Captains

    Thank you.

    Black Friday Captains

    Does anyone know if these captains have any special abilities or they are just normal 12 point captains dressed in black uniforms?

    You bring some very good points here. Thank you for your time all these are very good points to take into account. I know Georgia's weak aspects. What I do is i try to limit most of my broadside view or I do it when I am stealthy, IF its possible. Aiming is an issue, but usually you can land at least 1-2 shells with good damage. From closer ranges they are very deadly from what I have seen. I try to angle well to make good broadside damage and try to position well in parallel. Usually I fire and then I deny my angles until I reload. If I can turn after the enemy BB has fired even better. But knowing about good positioning is a thing of experience. What to avoid, how to protect you, when to push, when not. But if you can do all these things everyday you are already a pro. Good points thanks a lot! The third seems to be a very difficult task although I have played more DD's. Its unpredictable sometimes where they can be, with only cue being spotting. Its a situation that i never like! By the way I have a 19 point captain but at that time i had Georgia focused on the main battery guns on her equipment. But the captain skills are the same as I have her today. I isnt full secondary as I have another captain for my Massa. https://worldofwarships.com/en/content/captains-skills/?skills=3,12,13,14,17,21,23,28&ship=Battleship Also good input. Most of the time the problem is that until I realize where is the positioning of the enemy ships I am already at the wrong position! In another scenario you could see high HE spammers melting everything from E7 and also radaring all the place. I see many videos on YT. I like Flamu and Notser a lot but also I realize that many of their cases are situational and opportunistic, without saying of course that they suck. They are top guns! Spot on! Well said! I also looked Destroyer_Kuroshiokai when I was playing a lot my Shima! Great guy! Also good point, yes I have it. Well what it seems, I did the same thing but the other way around...!

    Very good point. At the beginning we were unaware about enemy ship positions until this first screenshot and to begin with when I saw the ostergotland going east I thought it would be a good idea to push from there with the donskoi. I should have guessed maybe...But then the other 2 ships were coming! But yes, it was bad positioning.

    Yes of course I am using PriTar I don’t think that with a 19 point captain you can do this in a BB easily without compromising other skills, where RPF in a DD is a must!

    Well I suppose you cant just yolo with 2 DDs in front in the beginning. The question was for the izumo and agir, but your comment about 1vs1 is a good solution, at least momentarily. Its all about balance I assume! How would you position yourself here when you see Izumo and Agir? You dont help at all with your comment. II have seen even Flamu going live and been literally alone in the edge of the map doing his best. But I dont think that I was camping by the way. Actually its not a full secondary now, but I am trying things on her alot. I never hit izumo because of active maneuvering and the aft turret has only 2 guns :) Good hint about the nose positioning! Thanks alot, I was questioning myself when this happened and after the battle although a victory, I checked the replay and wanted to ask someone maybe with more experience. Can you be more specific and tell me how you would position yourself here? I have realized this but there are times that I have crossed the line and DDs could torp me in mid game or I think that I can handle a scenario where suddenly I just die soon :) Fully understood and no you are not the bad guy. I would say the same thing if I was in your position but in hindsight. But I doubt that just by grinding a BB tech tree will give me the experience to challenge high tier players. Keep in mind that lower tiers doesn't mean always newer players on the matchmaking and easier gameplay. Many experienced players enjoy mid tiers e.g. to avoid radars. Yes, you find more experienced players in high tiers and the experience ceiling that you can encounter is on the roof. IMHO its the game like this, you cant avoid to get melted for some time until you learn by doing. Experience comes with mistakes and by making them in the high risk environment. Co-op also doesnt help at all. Its just a crap of stupid bots pushing in, on a way that you rarely, if ever see on randoms.

    Want your opinions. At the start of the game the Iowa which was exactly on my left decides to leave the flank and he is going to A for whatever reason, so I decide to support and stay on my flank but cautiously. Later on our DDs spot their DDs on C, and ostergotland goes through the gap east. Donskoi spots him and we shoot. While shooting at this ostergotland, on the north Agir and Izumo appeared on D10. Donskoi is leaving the area. At this point I started reversing while I shoot some HE on them. Now, should I aim to get in cover in the island on my right while trying to make some damage on these ships later on? Or just wait to regain my stealth do a 180 while shooting defensively. I did the latter and later on these 2 ships came south and Izumo died because Donskoi (which eventually arrived at B) burned him, while I got a nice citadel hit on this Agir on my second push which eventually died also. Some frames from the sequence and outcome. Now I am making this question because I find myself many times being defensively overextending. I try not to be in full throttle but I think that most of the time I run while firing instead of hide and wait. Georgia can help to disengage quickly, but you can be found in orbit in no time. In this game my score was low but it happens many times. Usually I score around 50000-70000, but I have done games with 200000. I try to get the correct angles either by flanking or by choosing to change my position because most of my team is on the same side with me, literally being impossible to make a good firing angle. Also I think that a good team affects my performance. I am not a consistent player but I find that with a good team I always perform better. Thats not good obviously. Thanks for the help.

    Speed Boost Question

    That’s what I think, differences are small. I will give a try on rudder shift. EDIT: I tried it. The difference is huge without prop mod...the speed boost is not so strong. Definitely will stay with prop mod on.

    Speed Boost Question

    Actually I have the prop mod on my Georgia and I am flirting between this and rudder shift (steering gears mod 1)

    Speed Boost Question

    Thanks. So they enhance each other. Already have it

    Speed Boost Question

    Does Propulsion Modification 1 affects the performance of Speed Boost consumable? Is the acceleration combined from both when Speed Boost is active? Or the Speed Boost is overmatching the Propulsion modification? Or the speed boost is only for the max speed? (no acceleration) Edit: Where Speed Boost=Engine Boost...sorry for that

    Aim Assist

    Thanks a lot. Makes more sense now. The video above gives really good hints especially on the mini map, which I was using it one click below maximum. Now I am using it in max scale, with transparent waters. Helps a lot.

    Aim Assist

    Hi gents. I am new to BBs and I have noticed some things regarding aiming. When 2 targets are close enough and you aim at the de-selected one (not with X), the shot goes off. While when aiming at the correct target selected (with X) the shot goes spot on, with the guns being at the same position. This happened by mistake at first, so I realized what's going on and from there on I always carefully select with X the correct target I intend to shoot. So shells are not just going on the pixel you aim, there is something else behind. I suck at long range aiming since I played for long only DD's and the last days I noticed that I got some very good hits with Georgia almost 25km away and I was excited by my aiming to be honest with only those 6 shells, so I thought that must be something else and not me I have noticed the shells go somewhat to the target to assist you. Is there something available to look at? Does it affect dispersion or precision when you incorrectly aim near the target?
