Ok,now i'm getting cheesed off.German BB's with a minimal angle are negating almost all my AP shots.

Last game was a German BB fest,100+shots fired less than 10k damage done,cos you know,who sails side on to me :(

Another issue i'm having is BB's jus delete me from any angle any range,i'm dodging like a rabbit on speed and a couple shots manage to hit me and BOOM.Not happy about this British cruisers take full damage,still early days.

Still I must percy vere(wish I could have a captain named that)

Any BB with a minimal angle will negate almost all of your shots. Don't blame the German ones only.

don`t bother trying to make it work it won`t, instead understand why it doesn't work


 

1. The AP only has nothing to do with historical accuracy or gameplay , but has everything to do with wanting to protect the Premium tier 7 and 8 battleships and giving them something to shoot at that can`t really damage them back


 2. The reason Belfast will be allowed to have HE is simply because its a premium ship and earns money for the company


 3. I feel pretty sure the accountants are happy with the new British line of cruisers and the game designers are "crying into their Vodka". After all nobody likes to build something that is deliberately flawed.

...or you know...maybe, just maybe...try to adapt to the new line?

EDIT: ...before complaining on the Forums only a couple of hours after the release of said line..in TWO threads.

More should read this and take note.

 

If you do not like the new RN line stop playing it, go back to whatever you played before. Not everyone dislikes it.

You played 2 battles at tier 4 and 2 at tier 5. Like above give it some more battles. I too had some problems to play certain ships and tanks due to my aggressive/scout type of gameplay. Some ships are just as useful in battle as afk player but sometimes it's players fault for playing it the wrong way.

Ah, I see the sock puppets have appeared to counter negative sentiment which is already rife. The brit line is a major, and I mean major, disappointment it seems. How could this have happened? To the supertesters, could you share a little of the iinfo your forwarded to WG, i.e. what feedback did you give them?

I wish I could Don, but I cannot. But in previous threads I've made my position clear on what I think. The devs do not have to listen to Supertesters, they have their own agenda and make their own decisions, they take into account various factors, not just our feedback.

 

Hopefully, once they have stats on how these new ships are performing they will make some balancing changes

From what I have seen today, I wonder if some (not you) supertesters feel pressured into telling WG whatever they think they want to hear.

I can only assume my views don't count,terribly sorry to have bothered you with a different point of view.

I'm trying to press on, however the line has been vastly underpowered so far. I just had to free XP 1/2 the way to Emerald because the Danae is just so utterly trash. Now I've gotten the Emerald it's a bit better, I finally have bloody smoke. Down side is now I'm getting thrown into matches with Myoko's and Nagato's because of the wonderful Tier V MM where you're always bottom tier. I really do hope the Fiji and upwards are better like people are saying, so far the lines been one big disappointment. My average damage is pathetic and my WR is falling like a rock, not like me at all - I'm no unicum but I class myself slightly better than average but the short comings of the ships themselves are really obvious at this stage, the complete uselessness of their AP against angled targets being the prime factor - even when shooting superstructure you get pitiful damage.

My Emerald just was dropped into the 2nd T7 game full of Scharnhorsts and Colorados. It is ... difficult to get anything done, even with maximum caution. Curse the new matchmaker at T5.

I started out with Emerald (which was OKish) and I am at Leander now.

 

Big improvement here. Tiers 7+ are supposed to be competitive in a way.

 

It is really unfortunate that the lower half of the tree seems to be really really bad from what I read. Bad design decision here...

ITs just like British Tanks all over again in WoT. They were amazing all terrain infantry support vehicles and WG made them essentially crapup to like tier 7. First line and its light cruisers is just beyond me.

I would think it far more likely that many of the ST tried to tell them, and nobody was listening.

Are people surprised about this?Just like in WoT, WG has crapped on the Brits.

In both games we have "different" types of guns.

In WoT you had high pen, relatively quick firing, low alpha and mega expensive rounds (from tier 8 upwards on expense). The rounds bounced so many times it was a joke. The tanks Armour was mediocre at best, crap as standard. All enemy tanks had to do was rush you to kill you.

In WoWS, you have "Different" AP, that will bounce with very little angling.  NO HE, relatively fast firing, low armour easily penned. All an enemy Cruiser has to to do angle and rush you to kill you. The only way Flamu killed that NO i his video was that the NO turned broadside at the last moment or he would have crapped all over the Edinburgh.

 

2 games, 1 Company, same Bullcrap. This will never change. 

 

Now there will be 1 or 2 gems in each tree, but that is it. Most will be very situational, just like in WoT. Some good players will make some ships work, most will probably struggle. Oh and don't expect any buffs this side of 2018. Possibly a nerf to Belfast though.

I'm not saying complaining is a bad idea, but some of the complaints read like they were surprised. Not me.

 

But hey, I'll play the Fiji, because it can work somewhat, not too sure about the rest,a nd will get the Belfast once WoWS have sold it to every other region first and EU/Brits last.

For some reason WG love crapping on the Brits, the US market is bigger I suppose, so they throw them a bone every now and then.

imo the biggest pain is achieving victory with the amount of potatoes at the lowest tiers :P

This, 100%. People will say we're being silly and that they wouldn't put so much work into a line for it be so bad it's a case of "git gud". Sorry, no. I feel that the people making the game these days haven't the slightest clue how it actually works or plays and invariably end up ignoring the advice of their own testing team and community contributors resulting in a joke of a line for the most hotly anticipated nation in the entire game. A nerf to the Belfast before they launch it would be the final straw at this point.
