    Newbie again

    I tried playing again after a 2 year hiatus. Everything confused me.

    bucket hat, cargo shorts and socks with sandals?
  6. The water changes weren't supposed to go live, but did, WG devs are happy with current proceedings, and will leave it as is, for the moment.
  7. The tier 10s certainly weathered powercreep better than the mid tiers. Personally, I think it's because they were before everything had to have gimmicks. Des Moines also had that huge utility buff, when she first got heal, and again when she got radar.
  8. I still don't know why they use the M48 turret on the M60, when they could use the A3 turret, and have that touch more difference.
  9. Oddly enough, we see that in most of the ships that have been around since the early days of beta. Wonder why.....
  10. Actually, Aoba has a decent reload. 5.5 rounds per minute, or 10.9 second reload. Her firepower issue is that she's only got 6 guns.
  11. Because he doesn't want to see anything.
  12. NC and up have improved sigma and the dispersion module, which allows you to get some nasty amounts of hits.
  13. Under 12km is a suicidal range to be spotted at when facing a USN BB that knows how to aim against destroyers. My source is a large number of destroyers that have been blapped by my NC, Iowa, and Montana.
  14. When dealing with a battleship the safest bet is to be broadside, however, that still might not save you. Some good aim and a little RNG, they can still land the 33% pens.

    French BB Impressions

    obligatory "your waifu is trash" post here. On a side note, I'm not overly excited for them. Loss of overmatch is going to have yet more people HE spamming, and they seem to like awkward turret layouts with the exception of Richie and Alsace.

    Special position for members who passed away

    We left Gilalad in the original foxey when he passed, and most of us are doing other things, no one but him in the original, or retired in f0xey.

    A smart Saipan will just make use of the strafe out mechanic, and ignore fighter locks. Something that it really shouldn't get. Ever since it was introduced, with the Saipan being able to strafe out without loss, it's been particularly bad.

    Looking To Upgrade From Old Laptop

    I have an MSI GE72 2QE, and it's worked quite well for the last few years. i7-4720hg, 12gb ram, 1tb hdd, and a gtx 960m. however, I don't know about upgrading it, or what the newer ones are like, as this one is older already.
  19. If you're shooting HE out of a BB that can overmatch things, you need to take a step back and learn mechanics. Also, stop whining about higher citadels. I'm happy they're finally back. I get away with far too much stupid shit in my US battleships, being punished for mistakes is good. I hate having these beautiful broadsides, but not being able to show people why that's a bad thing.

    Goodbye Nagato, don't call me, I'll call you

    I still prefer Warspite. Better accuracy without sacrificing 25mm overmatch, and good pen.

    Goodbye Nagato, don't call me, I'll call you

    I like Mutsu. Playing her is all about abusing the overmatch mechanics, and aiming for penetration damage instead of citadels.

    Goodbye Nagato, don't call me, I'll call you

    I cit the bows of a lot of tier 6-8 BBs with 13 and 14" guns. It happens, but it entirely up to RNG, and doesn't happen often.

    Goodbye Nagato, don't call me, I'll call you

    The bow citadels are due to wonky internal ricochets, or finding little armor holes. Personally, I thought the Nagato was great. Amagi has me missing the better sigma, but cherishing the better armor scheme and speed.

    PA DDs so far = shit

    I hate them for the sole fact that they cannot land torps on DDs. I don't want to be rushing smoke gimped, and I'm not sure I'd want to give up smoke in randoms.
  25. I bought 5 of the largest boxes. Got Alabama, 180 days of prem, and some economy flags and camos
