Hello.

Noticed there is a handy little tooltip showing if the cursor is positioned over the little ship icons. How accurate do you think it is for the current game state?

Aircraft Carriers Role
Destroy large surface ships. Fight enemy aircraft and aircraft carriers.

Battleships Role
Destroy enemy ships with main battery fire.

Cruisers Role
Fight enemy destroyers and cruisers. Provide artillery support and protect allies with anti-aircraft fire.

Destroyers Role
Carry out torpedo attacks on enemy ships. Escort allied ships. Provide cover for allied forces by setting smoke screens.
 
Do you think those little tooltips should be altered? Example: is " Fight enemy aircraft and aircraft carriers." the main role for CVs at the moment?  What do you think the Submarine tooltip will say?

Cruisers are probably the most accurate other than the aa thingy, battleships are the new anti-air ships for some stupid reason.

 

other than that they are all completely bonkers

CV description is still from pre-rework and as such no longer applies.

Sink as many merchants ships as you can?

 

the destroyer role part.

setting smoke screens for allied ships it's a bust.

Just in the other day i saw a video of flambass in a rank game, he was asking for smoke, the dd was giving him smoke a couple of times at the end they lost, flambass saved the star (if I'm not mistaken), that dd finished with 700 plus points.

and there is x topics about that in the forum

I think they should be altered a bit:

 

CV: Spot and tickle large surface ships. Bully loli botes.

BB: Miss the enemy with your main guns (unless you're in comrade ship). Be a damage farm for dakka  botes. 

CL & CA: Hump the closest island. Yeet shells at the largest target. Maybe abuse your teammates' smokes (or use your own).

DD: Run. Or try to torp BBs, but watch out for radar and balans ships.

Tried to think of alternative tooltips, but it turned out it's not that easy for me... so far I got this:

 

Aircraft Carriers Role  
Provide reconnaissance. Destroy enemy vessels. 

 

Battleships Role
Use health, armor and firepower to assist allies.

 

Cruisers Role
Fight enemy destroyers and cruisers. Provide artillery support and protect allies.
 
Destroyers Role
Carry out torpedo attacks on enemy ships. Contest objectives. Provide reconnaissance and anti submarine cover for allied forces.

(Don't die in the first four minutes of the engagement.)

 

Submarine Role

Carry out torpedo attacks.  

 

Also additional big tooltip on top of your ship name, that will change depending on what ship you are selected. Maybe showing something like the wiki pros and cons for the ship you are playing. 

 

Pros:

  • Fast turret traverse and main battery reload time (26 seconds) for a battleship.
  • Outstanding secondary battery. With the right upgrades and commander skills, her secondary battery range can be extended past 11.0 km, allowing Bismarck to whittle down enemy ships before closing in for the kill.
  • Has access to the Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) consumable, making her very difficult to torpedo from long range.
  • Reminiscent of earlier battleship gameplay: the closer she gets, the more dangerous she becomes to her enemies.
  • Above average anti-aircraft suite.
  • Surprisingly nimble for a battleship of her size, with an excellent top speed (30 knots).
  • Exceptionally durable with a good armor layout; has the vaunted "turtleback" armor making her highly resistant to citadel damage.

Cons:

  • No torpedoes like those found on her sister Tirpitz.
  • Only has eight (8) barrels, while every other ship at this tier has nine (9) or more of a higher caliber.
  • 15-inch guns have trouble with angled enemy battleships (use HE against the superstructure or choose a different target).
  • Her anti-aircraft can be destroyed with sustained HE spam.
  • Extremely vulnerable to fires. Superstructures can be set on fire by calibers of any size quite easily.
  • Armor scheme remains vulnerable to full penetrations by armor-piercing shells when showing the flat broadside of the ship to the enemy; Bismarck may not take citadel damage, but a lot of regular penetration damage hurts just as badly.
  • Main guns' accuracy can be disappointing at times, especially without Aiming System Modification upgrade.
  • Main guns' HE shells have low damage.

i play most DDs.

once in a Lightning, I was asked from a cruiser just behind me for smoke!

I answer "lol" and i hear whatever u think for the rest of the game.

the most cruisers and all BBs have over 8km detect range firing in the smoke. the only use of a smoke is to cover a very bad positioned friend to get away, if he stop firing!!!
