  1. I don't know why you think that is a good thing to strive for. So instead of a team game where everyone has a near-equal contribution to make, you're okay with different classes having an outsize influence on the outcome of games? Removing CVs is retarded, but it doesn't change how stupidly strong they are as spotters. This is generally okay at T8, but the constant spotting becomes super cancerous at T10 once you start dealing with railguns and 12-gun salutes from montanas.
  2. Its just like WoT. Almost everything before that T6-T7 boundary is unplayable trash. Get past the NY and Omaha, and you'll get rewarded with the New Mex and Cleveland
  3. Yamato: 25 Montana: 18Großer Kurfürst : 19 Zao: 23Des Moines: 20 Hindenburg: 25 Moskva:18Minotaur: 22 Shimakaze: 21 Gearing: 17 - 3 = 14Z-52: 12 + 1 = 13Grozovoi: 14Khabarovsk: 22Hakuryu: 17 Z-52 is pretty god damn strong when played correctly. On the other hand, there's less and less reasons to play Gearing outside of the fairly bland teamplay role of "follow me around and lay smoke "
  4. These were 3 out of 4 of my losses today. All carrier players, all guaranteed losses against the competent CVs on the other team
  5. Yamato: 25 Montana: 18Großer Kurfürst : 21Zao: 20Des Moines: 18 + 1 = 19Hindenburg: 24Moskva: 20 Henri IV: 8 -3 = 5 Minotaur: 21Shimakaze: 21 Gearing: 20Z-52: 18Grozovoi: 20 Khabarovsk: 21 Hakuryu: 17 Des memes gets an upvote. Second strongest cruiser I think Downvoted HIV again. Most of its players are social leeches
  6. Just saying, but Z-52 is borderline OP. The fact that the Khaba exists is the only reason people don't cry about it 17 +1 for Z-52 20-3 for HIV. Selfish and boring ship.
  7. So today this carrier let me get hard spotted by planes for 30+ seconds even though he had fighters hovering very close to me. I was frantically pinging the map and asking him to scare off the other fighters, but he did nothing and I got wrecked. His reply after I blow up at him? "Should have stayed closer to your team" Carrier players who do not help their team are the most insufferable fucking shitters.
  8. They've been trending towards giving battleships more and more idiot proof features. First the German line with hydro & turtleback, and now we have the Montana citadel changes. The other day I ranted to a friend how a FdG that was cycling direction center and hydro was enough to completely nullify my 55kt ognevoi torps. No special game sense or situational awareness required, just press buttan and you get 20-30s early warning. I can make all the clever predictive torp volleys I want, it doesn't matter.
  9. You're in for a rough speed bump once you hit T5. Just a word of warning, T5 cruisers are in a brutal spot right now thanks to matchmaking. IJN cruisers are probably the best line for beginners, go for that one.
  10. WG appears to be throwing their full weight behind the play4fun demographic. There seems to be lots of hostility towards competitive modes whenever it gets brought up on the official forums. Don't know how similar it is on RU and EU. All I can say is that NA's demographic is heavily slanted towards the 50 year old men who post hundreds of times trying to vigorously assert how they "really don't care about stats cause they're for weenies LOL!!!" Maybe WG did their market research, and realized most of the playerbase could give a shit about competitive? Shame, if true. But not surprising.
  11. Some official league with worthwhile rewards would be a good start. There's nothing wrong with the 7v7 format, I just don't care about playing this "competitive" mode with complete strangers. Also WoT eventually figured out that the low tiers are a joke for competitive. Tier 6 has some very boring and lackluster ships. Even the solid performers are not very powerful or interesting to play
  12. I'm really struggling to give a shit about ranked. Think I'll just take the extra signal flags as my reward and call it a day
  13. So at this rate... will there be any tier besides 10 where tech tree doesn't get shit on by premiums?
  14. I don't feel like watching those right now, but I have a few tips that are more "meta" than anything else 1. Its probably time to div with better players. You'll learn a lot. 2. Choose an optimal time to solo. Prime time weekday is the least derpy that I've seen. Weekends are iffy, but doable. Late night queues have extreme RNG due to the smaller pop, with wild swings in skill level. Do not do them. Too often it will be a question of who gets the NADO fishing div. Or you get matched against a uni CV while your team has WARBEASTY. Stuff like that. You already have enough things fighting against you when you're solo. 3. Manage your enthusiasm. If you can only muster a "eh I guess I'll play", don't fucking do it. I've never had good experiences from playing unenthusiastically during a grind. This goes for long term too. Just quit and come back later, you'll probably play better. We experience mental fatigue in anything that we do repetitively
  15. I finally figured out that I wasn't enjoying it in 3-mans. Still having fun solo, even uptiered The expectation to be SmokeBot Mk 7 really drags down the experience
