  1. 2.0 looks like end of closed beta with more detailed capture mechanics. So they rolled 2 years of changes back more or less. When 2.0 rolls out I will give it a try again.

    Z-23 - what am I missing

    They really need a lot of work. I was working on the z23, because of it's hydro. But loyang has better hydro, so now no need. I have all the other T10 DD's of note. Z23 is now on back burner.

    Revisiting the Myogi

    Nikolai has short range guns and is very slow top speed. You should be able to kite it all over the map.

    Z-23 - what am I missing

    They do not turn worth a crap. They are tall too, so contending a cap is a bad idea against USSR and US DD's. They have low damage 2x4 torp launchers, are decent (90 second reload) 14,400 damage is not great. They have decent concealment and their gun range needs at least 2 more Km for the 150 mm guns. It is ridiculous that the 128 mm guns with aft out range the 150 mm guns. The Loyang now has better sonar than the z-23. They are below par.

    She-No-Know-Me?!

    I had a decent game around 72k damage yesterday and made 325k profit with it. The guns were doing 3200 damage a salvo, but since you sit pretty high in the water, gun battles are not recommended except in emergencies or to finish off a cripple. I have a premium account though. The 9k range on the guns is pretty low. I think that should be buffed by 20 percent or so.

    She-No-Know-Me?!

    I like a lot. You just have to be careful with 8 km torps. That tier has at least 1 CV in half the matches if not 2. The gun range is kind of short. I like it a lot and it prints money. 250k to over 300k profit are common with 60 to 70k damage games.

    She-No-Know-Me?!

    Similar to old fabuki, but has 8 km torps. (Fabuki had 10k 67 knot torps) Think damage is a bit lower too. Guns are decent but ROF is a bit low.

    Lithe Lenningrad

    She is much faster than Anshan. The 2x4 torps are much more uselful than the 2x3 on Anshan. But the turret traverse is similarly bad. So you are already use to it.

    Good Torps, good speed, Soviet guns, and decent agility, what else do you need?

    Is it worth it? do you have multiple loadouts? Wki says it does, but they dont keep it upgraded.

    Goodbye NC, hello Iowa

    I played both my Iowa and Missouri and they are more resilient. I could really take a pounding, but HE kept me on fire all of the match. This allowed me more freedom of movement and a much more player friendly play style. (I don't have Montana yet) The funny thing is all CA's should have the same setup, but don't. The Moskva should not even be in the game because it is 15 years out of period, but this is a Russian Game company, so they needed ships for local consumption. Moskva is more of a BC with smallish guns, than a CA. The major thing about the US battleships is the area in question was all hoists and free space, so it isn't a citadel. The same could be said for Yamato and it may need similar treatment. Also, pre 6.6 the NC and Alabama were better at close range vs Yamato, than either the Iowa class or the Montana class. The restores the balance to the US BB's. This allows Montana and Iowa if they get close to Yamato to citadel her, but not vice versa. I think Yamato may need a little love. (scary I know) Also, Missouri has a slightly lower citadel than Iowa. (At least on my pc using the in game armor diagram. Or I am hallucinating) . Now the same kind of changes are needed on CA's.

    Hyperbole much OnboardG1? It is a small buff. Ca's will still burn it down. BB's will citadel a little less. Izumo will still bounce its' shells even with more or less flat side to it.

    Goodbye NC, hello Iowa

    First the Iowa was under performing. Now it will be slightly better. It will balance the T8+ BBs versus each other better. This may make T8 plus game play slightly less cancerous and more active. It is a win in my book. Now if they can buff CA's a little, and reverse some of the DD nerfs we might have balance. In case you are wondering, I am more of a DD and CA player, but they are real weak at the top end of the game.

    Kaga is for sale?

    T8+ CV's are so tough, and are becoming relatively popular that I wanted to max my AA first. (I have even had a T6 and T7 CV on each team recently) I use islands to hide me on approach, so it would be nice to have, but by playing defensively you can mitigate the need. Good CV players can erase anyone they want. They choose BB's because they are huge targets. I want them to pay dearly for picking on me. I saw a CV constantly go after a clanmate in an Iowa and he had 56 kills and managed to barely survive the game. I guess why I chose AFT first is even if you get sunk. If you can take out 50+ percent of an enemy CV's torp and dive bombers you have helped your team. I tend to protect the weak flank a lot. So I can get looked on as an easy target to CV's. Because of my play style, I need as much AA as I can have.

    Kaga is for sale?

    Some guy in a Kaga came after my Iowas twice in 2 minutes. (12 point captain so only have AFT) I shot down 33 planes but later I sank from the other BB's on his team. He forced me to turn, then they nuked me. I took some bomber hits and maybe 3 torps that did little damage. I think the ship isnt overpowered. It just will force you to react to the torp planes, and allow teammates to rek you.

    Goodbye NC, hello Iowa

    It won't be. You will just have to aim a bit to hit the citadels. You wont be eviscerated anytime you try to turn. It is a good change and will make the Iowa and Montana slightly easier to play. It is more psychological change, then in fact. So the US BB's might be able to use thier speed instead of bow tanking. Alabama and NC still require bow tanking, so I expect Iowa, MIssouri and Montana to gain a little staying power. They wont be OP. The first week or 2 after 6.6 goes live will be fun. Lots of medium range CIts to be had.

    Fred and Kurfurst are immune to BB cits let alone CA cits and they are far more common and are paperships to boot.

    how do you guys feel about the new german DD's?

    I like the t2, t5, t7 and t8. That's as far as I have gotten. Z23 is fun. CA got careless and gave me a flat side. I fired a broadside of 150mm AP for 16k damage. (5 cits for fun)
  20. Jarkorsis

    KM battleships

    The Bismark/Tirpitz are the most comfortable BBs in T8. Their only weakness is that their torp belt is lacking and their guns are of such high velocity that you will overpen a lot on CA's and DD's which can limit damage.

    HMS Hood

    The guns seem to not get citadels on BB's that often. So, there may be a lack of pen at range. My solution, is alternate HE and AP until I have 2 fires going, then I shoot AP. You can also spread fires around on multiple ships and then shoot AP. It sort of like a DOT class in most fantasy MMO's where spread out your DOTS, then use your small nukes. I am kiting most everything. The only BB that can catch me is the Iowa/Missouri and they usually sit still bow on, so that is not that much of an issue. I stay near max range until latish in the battle when the number of ships thins out some. I have almost 600 games in the Warspite, so the guns are not a problem for me.
  22. I had not gotten a super container since January. I have gotten 3 in 2 days. Spotter plane mod, smoke mod (Can be used on UK CL's, so useful) and 5 million credits.

    Ibuki

    I may be thinking of atago. That is the one with better concealment. Base concealment for Atago is 11.88, zao and ibuki are 12.6. That explains it. Brain fart on my part. (This is for Atago 11.88x.9x.88x.97=9.12 or 9.1 rounded.) Concealment module is 12 percent for CA, 3 percent for camo and 10 percent CE.

    Ibuki

    Mine said 9.1 in battle last night. I have CE, camo, concealment module. It could be a bug in the mini-map mod I use.

    Shimkaze torp question

    The Shima works better in the rare standard battle at T10. Since there is no pressure to cap, you can play U-505 and invisibly torp large groups of bow on BB's. The same holds for domination, being forced to cap depending on the situation, can be very dangerous.
