  1. I believe the WG fucking with me theory. Lost a 216k damage match yesterday. I don't play it significantly differently than other cruisers... just can't seem to win. I see people on youtube parking in open water adn firing unimpeded. I tuck in close to an island, and get shot when not spotted. Sometimes, my hydro fails to pick up torps. I love the ship... just seems that I lose 6 games out of 5.
  2. Doing something wrong in the Hindenburg. Really can't figure it out. My numbers look decent. At the very least, better than a 40% win rate would suggest... Any ideas?
  3. Bomber Crew was a great distraction for a few days.

      Only that  ? :/

  4. Did they change spotting range on torps in Wows?

    1. Assassin7


      IIRC the Shimas 20km torps were 2.1km spotting? go check that and see if its different.

      They did a pretty large rebalance on torps and detection ranges back in the pre-6.0 series of WoWs.  They made the detection of the 20km torps 2.5 km and dropped the speed to 62 knots.  At the opposite end of the spectrum are the Khab torps - they have only 6km range and a speed of 53 knots, but they have a 0.5km detection range  So yes, you need to look carefully at the torps to see what the current detection range is.

      Meant more recently than that.  Was playing for the first time in a few weeks yesterday.  Didn't see torps until it was too late.  Used to see them from much further out.

  5. First WoWP problems:  I have a ground attack mission that requires winning.  But winning is impossible, unless I take a fighter...

      Lost a game earlier, 597 to 33.  My team had the 597, but decided to all die after the squall.

      GA don't win games. Bombers don't win games. You can remove those two CLASSES from the game and exactly nothing will change.

      That's how irrelevant GA was, is, and will be,

      Until I have idiot teammates/bots who die to air defense planes, making it impossible to cap a point until more air defense planes spawn.  At that point, there isn't much a slow fighter can do.

  6. P-51 is as OP as ever.  Can beat 109/110 in energy fights, and everything else in turn fights.

      I pulled a 20k base XP in UP/Japan planes mission today.  I think I'll start those two lines.

      I pulled a 20k base xp in USSR/UK planes.  Thank goodness I picked up a Seafang for the T8-10 missions.

    4. Deusmortis


      Still no 8s.  Will have a 262 before long, though.  And my leveling idea was shot down by the inability to sell more than a few planes per day.

  7. I think the point of WoWP 2.0 was to eliminate solo play.

    1. Tedster59


      I wouldn't be surprised.  And I didn't even see it was you until after I killed you.

  8. WoWP 2.0 is good and all, but no amount of updates can fix players...

    1. Errants


      A perpetual issue of developers, from what I hear...

  9. Well... I suppose I'll install it and fly a bit.
  10. Yep, still hate Amagi.  Bouncing off the sides of DDs.

    1. Assassin7


      git gud, amagi is bae

      As much as I try, I can rarely make it work.  Playing it is a chore.  Seems way too soft, and the guns rarely work at anything closer than medium range.  I possibly play it too aggressively.

  11. Between contracts, finding some time to play again. I've had a very rough time in the Hipper. Needed around 50k XP to move on, and figured I'd play it since Cruisers were necessary for a lot of the Yamamoto missions. I just... could not seem to do anything well. I think my best game was in the 70k damage range, and most of that came from surprising a Yammy with 4 torps. Respecced to drop IFHE in favor of a higher fire chance. About the only interesting thing was a tendency to get 0 damage crits when sailing away. Did it enough once to earn hackusations. Finished not long ago. Picked up Roon, Free XP'd the gun upgrade. Definitely a night and day level difference. The faster reload makes it so much more enjoyable. And the heal gives me far more flexibility. Broke 100k within 4 games (all guns/fires). Nice returning to the lower tier game play, being able to perform fighting withdraws with 6 barrels.
  12. Didn't much like Hipper, but Roon has me loving WoWS again.

  14. Just found out the Captain of my ship plays WoWs.  And used to play WoT.

      So, he likes ships that are small, fast, and nimble. Literally everything his actual ship isn't.


    3. Deusmortis


      It's like his version of an RPG.

    4. How_Terrible



      It's all cool so long he as doesn't try to role play as the captain of the Costa Concordia.

  15. I'm told people actually like the Amagi.  I can't understand why.

      played a game in amagi for science. first salvo: 14K to Roon. second salvo: 16K to Des Moines. 


      seems fine to me

    3. Deusmortis


      I've got the hull.  Maybe the engine too.

      Playing the stock Amagi and saying its a bad ship is like playing a stock T-54 and saying its bad. Stock anything is bad and shouldnt be compared to fully upgraded counterparts.
