  1. As others have already said in detail, but tier 6 IJN Ryujo is night and day better compared to her predecessors.
  2. Indeed, and running my Jack Dunkirk in this boat also - if you don't plan ahead on that turret traverse, you are going to have a bad day.
  3. Orion is fun, a shameless seal clubber with protected match making - yes I have been abusing it. But yeah, sorta like playing KSM with great HE. If you can do well with KSM, then you are going to do good in a UK BB up to tier 6 I think - as that is where the similarities end and the line changes.
  4. Got the Roon in WoWs, fully upgraded, 16 point captain. Ummm, kinda like sex when it was new to me.

     

  5. So to tag in on this - Like my Yorck with the HE buff, will probably keep. Starting to "get" the Hipper, tricky boat but is growing on me, and almost ready to unlock the Roon. Will put a 16 point captain in the Roon, and I am guessing the Hipper and Roon are closer in play style than the Yorck. What are opinions on a 16 point captain skills in the Roon?
  6. I don't or rarely. On the off chance that I do now and I again, it lasts about 5 matches before the anger sets in. Not worth it.
  7. Just wait till you get that 10+ point captain in it, and you get the skill that knocks 10% off torp reload time (forget name). You can salvo torps every 30 secs, and from each side, creating area denial just on torp density alone . . . as long as you can dance well and stay alive. Looks like smoke firing tampering is postponed one more patch: https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/topic/83812-new-smoke-upcoming-changes-very-bad-idea/?page=3#comment-1944704 Kandly Community Coordinator WG Staff 225 posts 431 battles --- #54 · Posted 5 hours ago · Report post Hi guys, After discussing and reviewing the Supertest participants' feedback, we decided to continue the internal testing of the smoke visibility mechanics changes, which means the smoke visibility mechanics will remain the same in 0.6.9. Please note that we could be considering other options for this particular change. We know this affects one of the oldest in-game mechanics and we understand our players' concerns. However, we would like to remind you guys that the purpose of Supertest is to identify the most controversial parts of the changes and to offer us a different perspective by allowing us to take a step back and observe how they interact within the game. Keep in mind that not all of the tested items/mechanics necessarily need reach the public test stage, they can be sent for revision or become completely revised. Cheers, Kandly
  8. The Kuma with a 10 point or + captain is a nasty little bugger @FlorbFnarb As mentioned the Koenigsberg is an awesome cruiser, but you have to use it's ability to run away from the fight, pulling the potato with you, and firing from the aft guns. Smart people break off, potatoes die while chasing you down. The Gneisenau is a fast BB and gets past some of your pain points.
  9. Kirov is fun, but yeah, the Furutaka is love, one of my favorite ships. I also consider the Koenigsberg to be a good boat too, so there is that. I enjoy all three, but of the 3 you can tank better, hit harder, and get ROFL LOL torp hits with that 10km range when someone hurr durrs right into them thinking they are in a torp free zone.
  10. Reporting in after some time. Currently at WTR, sitting at mid teal, even dark teal, and my average stats are definitely going up. My totals will roll dark green in a few days. Not that I am too concerned with it, but the damage output is going up, XP is going up, just an overall trend that the things I brought over from WoT are helping me here. Mainly things I learned like "controlled aggression", map control, situational awareness etc. I know that WoT is an unmentionable over there, but I am definitely doing better in WoWs at less than 2K battles than I ever did in WoT at that battle count. Really enjoying the game. Someday I will come back to WoT, just having too much fun in WoWs right now. @Madner Kami, they did buff HE on the KSM cruisers, it has been nice!
  11. Thanks for the post, read the LWM reviews, both are appealing. Might pick up the Atago since she can stealth better.
  12. @CraBeatOff I just noticed, your name Acronym is CBO, which is one of my favorite places to hang out on the web, and digest how taxpayers money is being wasted (or used prudently.) Coincidence? No, I don't play tonks anymore, just boats.
  13. I just keep wondering about the converging similarities between Archaic One and SaintLaurentius Avatars. Is it just me? Serendipity, blind chance, or a Machiavellian plot?
  14. Yes, I still play WoT every now and again, and it is like a descent into hell, salty wise. I stay much calmer and play with a better state of mind in Boats.
