  1. I plan to grind the tiers because I want to try them all out, I also plan to run my favorite BBs for each tier against them so see how they stack up. I also plan to have lots of fun with my Isokaze and Clemson
  2. The search function isn't working for me, started last night. I usually have the site up on my phone so I can check certain players during battle, tried in later on my computer and the search still wasn't working. I can write a name there but when I hit enter or click search nothing happens, rest of the links work fine though
  3. I had a ton of fun in the Nicholas and Farragut, Mahan is harder because everyone has radar and sonar so no more ambushes
  4. Got my first TK in god knows how long, really annoyed by it even though I know its my fault. I was in my Mahan, tried pushing a cap early but was met by a enemy DD and 3 cruisers nearby, I pop smoke and light up the cruisers for a bit before I realized I'm screwed if I stay so I leave the cap dropped a full salvo of torps towards the cruisers when I noticed some dumbass in a friendly cruiser decides to go into the cap (trying to take my smoke I think), with 3 spotted enemy cruisers and a hidden DD. Well sure enough he quickly gets melted but clips one of my torps to secure the kill. Yea yea I know my fault but I didn't think he was stupid enough to actually going to go in the cap.
  5. Was on vacation with my son and wife at Virginia Beach and on our way home we decided to hit up the USS Wisconsin on the way out, unfortunately it started raining right before I got there (on top of that I forgot to pack my good camera so I was stuck with cell phone pictures). That said comparing the USS North Carolina to the USS Wisconsin and their both really different experiences, the NC is pure battleship was the Wisky has a really nice naval museum that is centered around not just the Navy but civilian navy also. The Wisky has less to see, they are still working on the ship apparently and recently opened up the engine area to the public while the NC you can go nearly anywhere. Also the Wisky is sooo much bigger feeling than the NC. This is starting to be a yearly thing for us, last year we visited the NC, this year the Wisky, next year we plan to go to my home state NJ for vacation so might as well stop by and see the NJ in Camden. Heres a couple pictures and the rest out in this album https://imgur.com/a/p38vS
  6. The only thing I hate more than in my DD than a RN CL is a Atlanta. If I see a Leander or Fiji I know I'm in for a rougher game than if I faced any other cruiser. That said don't sit in smoke pumping shells away, allot of captains are getting wise to that trick and learned how to shoot at where they see your tracers come out of. The line has a high skill floor and a high ceiling, personally on my list to try out eventually
  7. Well they did use a semi armor penatrating shell which is what this so suppose to be....
  8. 80ish for me sometime higher sometimes lower
  9. Done for the weekend, not winning anything and I'm getting some real window lickers, I actually had a game where I was the only one to sink any ships. I'm fine with losing but when my whole team evaporates before the first 5 minutes its just not fun for me, fuck them, fuck me, fuck this
  10. Man this weekend started rough, I had to fight tooth and nail to get anything going, teams haven't been much better. I haven't had a weekend like this in a while
  11. Ran into @ncc81701 @BiggieD61 and @Rodrigopine earlier, gave me my only defeat of the night and my lowest damage game, everything else was 100k+ damage wins, way to ruin it lol. BTW that Saipan captain you all had on your team was scary good our Kaga never had a chance
  12. Here's a link to my T5 Battleship review/overview. I think when I review T6i will separate them because I don't own nor plan to own the Warspite or Mutsu https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/132206-tier-5-battleship-reviewoverview/
  13. I noticed the Mikasa went back on sail and there was a influx of them yesterday (probably today also), lets just say my Konig Albert ate good yesterday. I tried to get into a secondary battle with one but couldn't get close enough (mixture of their secondaries being short range and people were focus firing them before I could get close)
  14. Goodbye ol' friend, I loved you, I hated you, you brought me great joy and much frustration, and if I can sum this ship up for myself it would be inconstant. I bought this ship in May last year and it took me 88 battles to grind through her. Why so long you ask, well at the time high tier play was a brick wall I had no interest in dealing with and she was vastly different from the USN standards I came to love. I maybe had 10 games in her for the first 6 months but since the beginning of the year I started playing her more and more and started to love her. The issue I had was I could have games were I did a easy 120k damage or a frustrating 40k damage game. Also with the MM changes I found her being bottom tier allot more that she should have but she is more capable of handling herself in T10 matches when played right. Lets get down the the nitty-gritty Guns: This took getting used to, but once you figure them out they become hilarious, especially against KM BBs at long range, its so easy to take 10-20k cuts out of them, but at close range it really favors them. This ship loves cruiser citadels, I dunno why I play the Amagi on PTS every session and while she is a great ship, the NC is just a cruiser citadel machine. I ended up logging in a bunch of time in COOP while learning her guns but once you learn them they get easy. I never upgraded the FCS as I found the stock range more than capable in all matches AA: Its a shame I never got to put this to full use, CVs avoided me. I ran the AA mod along with BFT and AFT and I only had one game recently where a Hiryuu had a hard on for me and I deleted 32 of his planes for a single torpedo hits. Other than that I think my 100+ AA rating acted more as a deterrent than anything I ran full concealment build on mine and found its ability disappear and heal extremely handy when being focused down. Her speed was very nice to have also and with rudder upgrade she could really wiggle and kite enemy players. I think she is a tougher ship for new players to high tier because she is a very different ship from what came before unlike the IJN and KM lines where they are more of a progression. I had a 50%WR (one of my worse WR for any ship), Averaged 66,926 damage, 1109XP, Survival 42%, accuracy 24%, and WTR 1158. Hopefully I can be more constant in the Iowa
  15. Yea I know I've been meaning to hop on your discord but I usually don't play more than 3-4 matches on a given night, less if its a weekday
  16. "Don't worry comrade, we here you want more super containers, so you shall have all you want" Kinda like the old Monkey Fist story
  17. I agree with this, its something I noticed also, but with other ships also like the NC, Iowa and NM when firing bow on with the forward guns
  18. Konig is king of tier 5, but she is a struggle in tier 7 matches because of the small guns and short range. Kongo never felt like it cared what tier it was in. The New York/Texas are terrible in the wrong hands but scary damage dealers when a good player has her
  19. I average 62k damage with a 30% accuracy in it, under 14 km she is accurate for me. Maybe she just works for me
  20. I don't use HE unless I'm fighting another Dunkerque, it's AP is fantastic, good ballistics, great at deleting cruisers and destroyers. Very fun ship
  21. I never had a issue with accuracy under 14km, outside of that it's pretty derpy I will admit
  22. Well depends on how its used, for me she is the best mid late game ship, her guns are excellent at wrecking cruisers and DDs. She has a fine line between being aggressive and passive and when to do either is very important. In the words of another player it's a great ship that is very easy to play bad
  23. I run AP nearly all the time in BBs unless a target BB refuses to stop being bow on our if I know a DD is close by. Heck AP isn't all that bad against DDs because 5 overpens will take half this HP
  24. I nominate this entire team, we barely won because a cruiser went down the center and capped out and if I was on the other team I would be flipping out over a loss like this. Seriously look at the base XP of my entire team on a Win, man they were bad I was only able to carry so far. I won't like I felt dirty after this match because it shouldn't have been a win
  25. I think I'm going to sell the Iowa, I hate high tier play, the NC was managable because I didn't see high tier matches all the time but I just don't enjoy it. Not sure if I'm going to rebuy the NC, I might sit on this and mull it over but honestly I have no desire to play the Iowa anymore
