Hadn't been paying attention to my progress with the missions, and unexpectedly got the Dreadnaught earlier tonight. Had to give it a try and seems it is a good boat. Not convinced I will play it again, but was a fun match.

 

How is everyone else finding it?

Does it contain, next to the chessboard, the plain colour scheme like how it was in the supertest?

Has this as default prem camo. Didn't get to play it in test so no idea if this is same :)

So no alternative available? That's a shame.

Hmm... maybe I saw it all wrong and this is without any skin implemented. It wouldn't be the first time though. IIRC West Virginia and Boise had a plain colour scheme modelled that is not available for unknown reason.

There's an option to 'not show any artsy-fartsy BS' somewhere in the display options, I think that radar-cog on the right.

Not really on topic, but I turned it all off and the camo remained as above.

 

Other people who played it finding it good?

That only reduces a selection of premium skins. The others can only be hidden with a mod I think (the USSR genocidal regime propaganda one for example, as well as every expandable camo).

Well, I don't like the looks of it, but apparently she actually wore this scheme under the alias "RMS Mauretania". Note how they conveniently disguised herself as an ocean liner. Even her gun turrets are hidden away!

Not to troll or anything, but somehow I find it hilarious how above me - if I saw it correctly - so far noone exactly nailed her actual name.  :Smile_teethhappy:

Oops. I am tempted to back and correct my spelling, but that would make your post less funny so I leave it alone ;)

 

How is HMS Dreadnought going for people?

I was about to open a thread with a suggestion to WG to slightly expanding the deadline for the mission. In the holidays times lots of players like me want to spend time with family. I don't mind a deadline for winning freemiums but I ask for a compromise: extend the deadline just a tad to say Jan 15th. If I didn't make it before then it's my bad. 

 

TL:Dr. Deadlines are ok for me. Please give a little more slack

Played it a few times and suppose it's not a bad ship really for its tier 3 class. I do find the turret traverse speed to be horrendously slow though, even with the turret skill used to speed it up a bit. Not so much a problem when shooting at distance ships. But I've had a few DD's coming right near me in about 3 games now, only about 2k away and sailing past me broadside waiting for their torps to reload and I just couldn't keep the turrets on them at all to take any shot each time. No matter how hard I tried different ways to do it in 3 games it happened. Don't know if anyone else has had this happen in it to them yet?

 

I think maybe they need look at buffing the turret transverse a little.

 

Don't get me wrong, I obviously don't expect BB turrents to be fast enough to keep pace with a DD sailing past you at close range. But it was bad though, you don't seem to stand a chance of getting any shots in at all, no matter if you try and sail away from them turning into your turret transverse to help speed things up and hope at least 1 turret lines up for a shot.

When the ship was released the skin was bugged and it was discussed then, the bonuses still applied and ship looked like above. When new patches have arrived the bug was solved and it is the scheme showed in post 5.

Sealclubbing? Nah, yesterday in my Albany with 19pt captain I faced people in Dreadnoughts who, according to their emblems, at least reached tier 10.
