One of the worst ideas developers of this game have ever had is storm. You cant see anything, you are driving around map like idiot and that is the game. WHY????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Who benefits from this? How does this makes game better in any way? Why have these random moments of - screw you players, now you are blind. 

Also what is really fun is to play in storm as DD or BB.

DD game play in storm is something like this - no ships, no ships, no ships, nos hips, wtf is everyone - BOOM 2 cruisers out of nowhere and your dead.

BB game play is just no ships, no ships, no ships, no ships and game ends. 

ONLY people who benefit from this utter stupidity are already SUPER OVERPOWERED ships with radars. That is it. 

So ill make poll and tell WG what you think about storms.

Use minimap? Dont go off alone? The team which sticks together can turn games around in a Cyclone.

Also i disagree with the strongest class in Cyclone: Its clearly CVs. The planes get spotted at 2km, so there is no AA cover. Still CV can see the minimap and sees the targets which his friendlies are spotting, so he can easily cherry pick even AA ships and surprise them instantly.

That you can see spotted planes on your minimap doesnt help AT ALL, since you cant target them :cap_haloween:

 

Also BBs have an easy time in Cyclones: Get spotted and you dont see it? HELLO DD close, you can start evading torps. Or turn on Hydro, start a plane whatever. If its a Cruiser you can usually win that. And even if its Hindi rushing you, then he can only win that if you are all by yourself. If BB has backup, then Hindi cant withstand that.

 

Strongest ships in Cyclone

CVs

Missouri

all other BBs

Some Cruisers

DDs

Rest Cruisers

Looking at poll i can see that same EDIT who play in most games are here too. WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU WANT STORM? FOR WHAT? 

Eh, well it is my own naivete, thinking that there could be at least some reasonable people here and sadly it is just a fact that 90% playing are just EDIT

Enjoy being blind in storm EDIT captains....

Sometimes it's fun, adds a nice edge to the game and mixes it all up. It's been happening a little too often this weekend (not sure if that's intentional) and it is a bit of an unwanted random factor.

It doesn't require much skill and cognitive capacity to deal with storms, it's sad you can't seem to deal with them.

 

So, everyone who doesn't agree with you is handicapped and a brainless bot?

But dude, YOU are the one who can't deal with storms, so yeah.

 

Also, reported your post for great justice and hopefully a ban.

I think it's usually brainless people with no concept of tactics that think storms are bad because they don't know how to use it to their advantage.

Some tips: the minimap is a vastly more useful tool in storms, yes you cannot see ships but you can still see thei location /last known location, so if they are spotted before the storm hits, you should have a general idea of where they are, and where they may go, and then react to that accordingly.

 

the other option is to grab RDF, but it only works on 1 ship at a time so mileage can vary.

Battleships and Carriers mostly.

Mmm, how so? My main class is BB, and I never benefit from this.

And before you say what I know you gonna say (I need to count on it and move much forward on time), dont. Im not type of player to rush 4 min into center of map and expect the enemy team with low Conc. to gang bang me from all around.

yes we need them cause sometimes we are tired of seeing people sniping from 18-26km or even more. storm was made to make ships fight/meet closer! if you are sailing alone in a storm then is your problem, also the most ships that benefit from this in my opinion are the german battleships and cruisers. also dds if they dont meet a radar cruiser.

Who will mostly profit from a stealth buff? Ships with bad detection, good armor and inaccurate guns I guess.

I disagree. You cant explore the map in the storm / cyclone with T10 BBs as they as to slow to move and catch anything on 8 km range. And there are big chances that some enemy cruiser or DD will come to your broadside and torp you because you couldnt spot them on time to prepare on torpedo attack.

This cyclone's are best for torpedo spammers. They have low Conc. so they can easy sail around objectives which where they can expect enemy team to come during cyclone and just use torps...

I was about to vote on this poll, which concerns a familiar issue, well deserving of a serious debate.

And then I read this:

Please ask yourself this, Fonfalks: Having read what you just wrote, why would anyone bother to vote on your poll?

You might have just substituted your poll questions with, "Do you wish to get insulted: Yes/No", and saved everyone the trouble of taking your poll seriously to begin with.

How is Cyclone enabling them to do that? they can always do that. However certain Radar ships are easier to spot without cyclone. If you spot a Moskva or Missouri f.e. he will just insta radar you by the time they are spotted. And you cant avoid ships in cyclone when you are first in line, since you cant know where or WHEN they will pop up. Usual map awareness helps, but not always.

 

BBs do profit more, since BB guns at <8km are so deadly.
