  1. Yamato: 20Montana: 21Großer Kurfürst : 25Zao: 23Des Moines: 23 +1 nothing competes with the DM's team support ability but unlike other team support ships, the DM is an absolute monster by itself at mid and close ranges as well.Hindenburg: 25Moskva: 19Minotaur: 20Shimakaze: 16 -3 has its moments of dominance but with the Z-52 and Grozovoi being added to the list of shit that will fuck you up if you cap, and the torps being so easy to spot, and the smoke being meh, and the guns being anemic (not even the hilarious alpha strike advantage of mid tier IJN dd's) this thing just doesn't fill a role that isn't crowded and/or useless.Grozovoi: 11Khabarovsk: 16 Hakuryu: 17 I don't particularly like playing the DM but with the Z-52 being eliminated (I can only assume by people who haven't played it since it was buffed or learned it at all....) and CV's being in the state of hilarious imbalance and unreliability they are, there's just nothing on the list that has the CONSISTENT carry potential of the DM. The Hinden is a close 2nd, and it took a lot of willpower not to just tell you you're all wrong about the Montana, stop trying to tank like a Yam with it and play it like a cruiser you muppets...... The Shima just doesn't fill a role anymore, not like the mid tier IJN DD's do. It needs something. I don't know what, it's right on that line where the tiniest misstep in buffing it would make it game breakingly OP, but in it's current state, stacked against the other DD's, it just doesn't perform on par with any of them really. This was another choice where I had to set aside my intense and personal hatred of a cruiser with worse concealment than the fucking Kurfurst.......I know the Moskva is a decent ship, I just hate it. And after a match yesterday in which I late game carried by brawling a 2 man div of them in to oblivion in the HENRY FUCKING IV, I hate it all the more. But it is not the worst ship for winning battles consistently.
  2. Been dumping clips on youtube for a while, figured I'd share them:
  3. The only part of this that offends me is the slideshow FPS. It's 2016 and WoT runs on an engine that was outdated 6 years ago. Come on.
  4. Odd that the meta is actually better on NA for once. I can't recall a single tier 10 match in the last couple weeks without at least one radar cruiser on each team. the DM is coming back in style, and I've been playing a lot of Moskva lately. Shima's are around for sure, but teams aren't usually stacked with DD's like they were a couple months ago. I have, however, seen a few 3-man Zao div's. I have the Zao, I like playing it, but that's just not ok...If I div I always play something that can actually contribute to div mates game play. Moskva or Hinden. 3 Zao's is just Lady Gaga levels of trashy.
  5. I completely agree with this assessment, the only reason I am holding out hope is that WG is not the developer, only the publisher. It remains to be seen where clans go in this game. If they follow WG's example, you're completely right.
  6. There won't be until WoWS has end game content. When that happens, expect a lot of expansion in discussion. WoT content creation took a nose dive for the same reason when CW: Participation Trophy Edition was rolled out. Once there's a sustainable competitive scene content creation will increase.
  7. Welp, WoWS high tier battles were fun for a while. Now its just back to half of every match is nothing but stacked DD spam. Time to find another game.

      I picked up SQUAD this weekend, really enjoying it so far.

  8. That's what drives me nuts, I'm pegged at refresh rate (75fps) all the time but no matter how high I turn up the AA, other players are not modelled very well. Missing details and lower quality models, noticeable even at 3440x1440
  9. What resolution and what GPU are you playing on? I have it maxed but I'm also playing on a watercooled GTX1080. It doesn't make all that much difference at reasonable resolutions (1080+) except on the cables all over the ships, which drive me nuts if they're all blocky and gross. If you aren't actually seeing rough edges that annoy you then don't bother with it. It is a resource hog option.
  10. WoWS and Witcher 3 are still my main go-to games. Been getting back in to Division recently; the last patch was a lot of exactly what the game needed.
  11. We just elected a meme. America, fuck yea....

  12. That sounds more likely. I know at the height of my skill (back when I regularly sported 70%/3000+ recents, like over a year ago) it was all just reflexive. Just by how a tank moved and how long it had been since one of them fired I always just knew which in a group had just fired. I also used a gun sound mod because this was back when all the gun sounds were shit, but that also helped, as I knew all the gun sounds by heart and the mod made them all sound different. Like Brit 120MM sounded different than US 120mm, 105mm meds sounded diferent than all the Russian 100mm, etc. I don't think a mod is the way to go. Especially with the client being as good as it is now.
  13. I also logged in recently after having played for maybe a week and writing the game off. Holy shit is it fun now. Even alone (cuz I have no friends) you can still run around and get things done, get decent loot drops outside group missions, and the whole thing is a lot more rewarding now. It's rather nice being able to actually kill 2-3 lvl 30 purples with a single AR mag now. As opposed to reloading 3 times for one.
  14. I'm struggling to think of what settings you have turned on that make it difficult to tell who fired? I've been playing WoT at stupidly large resolutions on max settings for years now and I have never encountered this. The only ones I can think of would be garbage like motion blur and whatever stupid screen filter effects are in the client. Which just about everyone turns off because they look like shit and detract from game play. What specifically is it you're having a hard time seeing?
