Nope ... I ain't grinding the brits. 

No but seriously. The new meta sucks. Smoke firing everywhere. whats the worst are divisions of UK cruisers just sitting in smokes the whole match ... and no DD dares to go close

Just free xp'd myself a schors. Time to radar them pussies out of smokes by this time next week when russkies discounts are coming (got all the flags and camo with 100% bonus xp) :izmena:
Let the grinding begin.

Oh please, are you seriously complaining about some ships with awful smoke, awful dispersion, awful penetration, incredibly unreliable shells that give 2k damage per salvo with good luck, only AP so no fire chance, gigantic citadels and no armor? (I'm sure I forgot about something)

I can see how, if they had HE, they would be the most annoying ships in the game. Right now, you can just angle and forget they even exist. Still, why couldn't we do away with the smoke? A strong repair party on all tiers, great maneuverability, and the current AP + bad HE shells would make them unique enough, without the smoke. Also, decent torps with the ability to fire 1 by 1.

1. Get a battleship.

2. Position yourself correctly, facing the smoke and staying out of torpedo range.

3. Look where the shots are coming from and fire AP shells at that position in the smoke.

4. Enjoy citadel hits, free exp and credits and the sound of bouncing AP shells.

What the hell would you like players in brit ships to do? Come out of the smoke to be citadelled by HE. If it wasn't for the smoke the brit ships with their short range and pathetic armour wouldn't last 2 minutes and this is a fact. Ffs, you really want to complain about the smoke without thinking just a little further than your own nose?

I think we should add one rule to the forum rules:

  • don't complain about classes / lines, if you haven't played them

Then you realize Shchors don't have radar... Only Chapayev and next boats.

 

Indianapolis would be better counter - radar, 203 shells overmatching bows in Tea Kruzers up to and including tier 7. She does have some range too, in case you get launched into BB fest.

Or play DDs and torp dem smokes. British ships need to show its sides to use all guns, so you have good chance to hit them, plus their smoke is really small. Clear target to aim at.

This basically.

 

Smoke is all they have, because as soon as they are out of it they are basically two shot by most BBs. Probably British cruisers are getting most of their damage currently against other British cruisers.

 

In all the games I played over the weekend, only once did I see a British Cruiser do well and that was obviously a very good player (because he was rank 1 in ranked battles) who had a very good game in a Leander in a tier 7 battle. Most of them seem to be dying a lot, even the Belfast don't see to be doing that well in the games I played.

 

The hard counter to them is everything basically, but especially German BBs who can use hydro and just charge down bow in into their smoke, they'll bounce all the incoming shells and citadel them from the front or US cruisers with radar and 203s that overmatch them from the front and again bounce most of their shots.

Actually, UK cruisers could be surprisingly good at dodging smoke torps - unless they're full-broadside towards the DD launching position their acceleration could save their butts in many situations.

They usually are full broadside because their gun arcs aren't great, the rear turrets get blocked by the superstructure quite a lot so if you want all 12 guns able to fire at most targets whilst in the smoke you need to be pretty much broadside on.

LOL at all the buthurt UK grinders :D 
As I said I'm working towards a solution to push you pussies out :)

Just unrustle your jimmies. All I said was that yo uare anoying with your smokes everywhere.

 

He is a battleship player, what did you expect?

When BB is the least played class on my account :D (or atleast it should be judging by the last 6 months)

As I said I'm working towards it. I will be sailing in a brand new Chapaya this weekend, judging from this 5 hour grind. but I've got to say Shchors is such a nice flamethrower ... I might keep her.
