Nerf cruiser AA skills. I mean, there's one or two threads where CV complains about AA? Unpalatable.

It would be nice if the powers that be returned PM to Cruiser Cpt skills. Otherwise, I agree with OP. Play Cruisers carefully & hunt stragglers (kind of what wolves do to their herd prey animals).

In fact, I like to refer to my Hipper as my 'Wolfie'. I expect the Hindenburg is even better (I don't have it yet). & there must be other 'wolves' out there, lol.

Abandon randoms, and opt for Ops. Much more enjoyable cruiser game - well, at least until WG finds out and changes them. ;)

when i look at the minimap it becomes apparent pretty quickly you were facing a sack of rancid potatoes. 

 

Thats basicly the point. The enemy DDs went for caps, while all enemies crap their pants in spawn. We had a Radar Neptune + Me + our Kiev gangbang the Daring = C-Cap won. I was basicly unspotted shooting the Daring, because every other ship was so far away that they couldnt even see me.

On the other side, both DDs lost against our Gearing and Montpelier... because (again) they had 0 backup from their team. Where was the enemy Alaska and Nevsky radar threat? Pooping their pants, with much tankier ships than Montpelier and

a freaking Neptune.

Yes,... Because not getting back enough was the problem here, clearly

Cruisers without 20 km range have to get closer. If there are no (more) DDs, they have to spot. 

My Edinburg has a hard life now against Tallins, Donskoys, Rigas or Hindenburgs.

Smoke? i get radared.

Radar? i get sniped.

Don't forget you burn like matchsticks now. Seldomly have I been set alight so often as nowadays.

I have a love/hate feel with the update. It's nice that there isn't a single set of fixed skills you really want, and I do feel they've tried to not ruin many of the possible builds (e.g. the secondary range increase on French/german bbs), but cruisers pretty much have been left out in the defensive department... That's my issue with the update.

The kutuzov game actually had a CV (see planekills) even that didnt matter. Well, we were 3 guys just getting the caps (Alaska + Kiev and me) and he really didnt get much done despite trying to attack us. And the enemies were 19km away :cap_fainting:

Sometimes it can be positive if you have some lemmings behind you :Smile_teethhappy:

Looking at the first picture I thought: "Wow, that's a shipload of damage done in a Katori..."

Then I noticed it was Kutuzov...

So please come back when You did that "Take cap 1, then cap 2 and then take cap 3" in a Katori... :Smile_trollface:

the way to win Tower Defence of Warships, is to give the caps to the opponent team at the start of the match,

and farm them while they are advancing.

once they lose hp and are fewer in number, start moving your defences forward slowly.

 

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNGGGGGG!!!!!!

 

seriously. the winning strategy is "defence creep".

To be honest, there are 2 viable cruiser builds now: 

 

1. You take the skills you already used before the rework and call it a day.

2. You pick the "attention wh0re" build with 15+ km visability. 

 

Diversity!!!

Yeah, it feels as if they got the skills the wrong way around like rewarding BBs to push in would have been better for the game than this. (Would need to do something about the HE spam though).

 

As for the Nevski if you take the recommended skills it has 14.8km detection...how the [edited]are you meant to play like that (obvs I think Nevski has bad concealment anyway but still this is more than a joke.)

-Send a dd at enemy territory.

-Keep it there inside the concealment range doing nothing. 

 

Deadeye skill broke. Continue capping  :cap_cool:

Next patch? 

 

1. AA nerf on surface ships

2. CA main gun range nerf...reduces the spotting range ^^

3. some random CV buffs, because the last buffs were already 4 weeks ago

4. some random DD nerfs

5. some more random CA nerfs

 

The patch after that will bring finally a dead eye nerf, sadly no free respecc as we already had a month long free respecc period and dead eye is optional always.^^

All the BB players who specced it (I.e. all of them) will have to fork out cash to respecc.
