  1. What's their niche? Fast and squishy with high dpm low caliber?

    Ranger

    I only got back in to the carrier game out of boredom with the daily range snipefest. I knew the imbalance was bad, it looks better at high tiers, but what do I know. It's still just a dog shit mechanic that has been worked out even less than WoT arty. I'm not sure if it's the answer, but I'd rather see carriers playing at the same range as battleships. It would be more fun for everyone else if they had less range, but also more fun if you could survive that and have to actually play the game along with everyone else and limit the imbalance between CV classes and players. I doubt that's the answer, but it would be more strategic with 30km range.

    Ranger

    Is it even possible to level a Ranger outside of Co-Op with the likes of the Saipan? I just bought one after having it unlocked for a year for shits and giggles and the one Random Battle I try I face a Saipan 46% shitter who wipes the floor with me. I even had my fighters 1v1 a wing of his fighters over a friendly Atlanta, Gaede and Scharnhorst and he killed all my fighters and bombers in that same AA cloud. This is why I hesitated buying the thing, knowing it's bad enough facing IJN, but my Baltimore rarely killed Saipan planes without active AA running.

    What Changed?

    I realize also that I play basically 12a-5a EST time, so I play with shitty 3k queue and SEA/Asian shitter extrordinaires, but it's just brutal still. Majority of my matches I see the top tier ships getting <400 exp. I just witnessed a solo Des Moines 1v3 a full health division of Conq/Iowa/Khab and they combined got him to 60%. How do these people breath?

    What Changed?

    Yeah sorry for the way multiple posts. I just got a time out message when I posted and it loaded for like hours.
  6. What has changed most recently with this game? While my performance has generally improved this past week or two I can't break a 40% win rate on a great night. I division with a purple friend and we still barely break 40%, thus he just logs off. Has something changed with a recent patch? I've just been fail grinding cash on premiums and trying for some select doubles, but at least 80% of my matches involve 5 teammates dead in <2minutes and only 1-2 ships doing over 20k damage. I've never seen even WoT get this bad this quick. I have maybe the rest of the week before I quit this game again because WG rewards mouth breathers. The best team division I've seen in a week was Jedi.......

    I have! We have a museum membership every year. I love checking that out, as my grandfather served in one in WW2. A cheaper alternative: https://www.amazon.com/Nanoblock-Technology-NB-004-Battleship-Yamato/dp/B001ET5NUI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1510345468&sr=8-1&keywords=nanoblock+yamato
  10. I decided to test some of the alternative non-Lego brick brands out there to see what was worthwhile. Oxford are South Korean Legos with a lot of military themes. I got this bad boy and it's sitting proudly on my kitchen table. It was a lot of fun and decent difficulty much like older 1980's Legos were. Much more satisfying money spent than WG's ridiculous virtual ship prices. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MQY5JVW/ref=oh_aui_bia_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Premium Ships +/-

    Yeah, I got that you didn't disagree. I was just pointing out that especially compared to even WoT, the premiums in this game are more often top of tier or at least workable.

    Premium Ships +/-

    That's funny you don't disagree, but say he'd be an easy professor. I think it would look different if we had all the ships per tier there. It's becoming pretty obvious that WG is making premium ships awesome compared to their counterparts. Some are hit or miss, like Atlanta is probably a miss, making it serviceable, but not grossly overpowered. So few premiums, especially above tier 5 suck......come back with your Prinz Eugen results. Although historically dominant ships seem to be the worst premiums.

    Premium Ships +/-

    Done. I just never play it since it's tier 4 and the tier sucks for fun or money making.
  14. Referencing Onboard's tier 8 ship ratings, I couldn't find a thread here about premiums and which were worth buying, good, bad or terribad. That way folks like me don't end up with the Prinz Eugen. Paraphrased all opinions: Anshan- B+; B A grem a tier higher, sadly not god tier but still very good Arkansas Beta- B+ Not bad, tier 4 who cares, never play it. Arizona- B; B+; B Sadly it is a little too slow. 4x3 guns but only 14" Atago A stealthy decent guns and a heal option Belfast - A+; A+ Godtier, sadly the platform isn't as good as the MK but it is also a tier lower Blyskawica- B+ sadly with the stealth nerf it lowered a little bit but its still very powerful Emden C+ meh but better with recent buffs Graf Spee A- 8 km torps at sick angles and 11" cruiser busting guns Gremyashchy- A Russian Bias, best $5 or whatever it was at beta. Big guns, IJN range torps at tier 5 and handles better than the Russian line. Would buy again. Ichizuchi B+ much better with range boost recently and very fast for tier IV BB Indianapolis- A- ; A- Great guns on a surprisingly good platform + Radar + good AA. Imperator Nikolai A- tough as nails but got an incidental nerf when most othe BBs tier 4 -6 got range buffs Kamikaze et al- B+; A- stealth torps in an age of no stealth fire Katori C meh Konig Albert C+ meh but dangerous up close Marblehead- B-; C+; B- Shittier Omaha. Used to be better with longer ranged guns (same ship and guns which have a longer range on the Murmansk I might add. Mikhail Kutuzov- A+; A+ Just complete God tier. Broken smoke with long range HE spam Missouri A Radar Iowa class Molotov- A; B+ Great guns on a pretty meh platform Murmansk- B+; B+; B Used to be god tier with old AFT but sadly the meta has brought it down. Solid tier 5 Russian bias LOL - see Marblehead above. Okhotnik A- Sick amount of guns and 4x3 torp launchers Russian bias at its finest Perth- C+ Prinz Eugen- Jury is out. HARDMODE, Reverse Russian Bias Scharnhorst A-; A- A great all around ship, all it needs is more accurate guns to bring it to God tier. Run mine with secondary build from Bismarck Captain 7.3 km and torps Shinanome- B Sims- B+; B- Underrated, good ninja, great money maker, cheap tier 7 at $24 USD. Would buy again.; B Meh torps with meh firepower, only excels at knife fighting. anemic with really really slow torps. Tirpitz- A, A Pretty fucking great it's just not a MK so I couldn't give it A+. same plus 10.6 secondaries now Texas- B-; B- ; B Same problem as Arizona but doesn't have great firepower, good AA. Warspite- B; A-; B+ Slow turrets, meh range but pens tier 8s easily

    This thread is the only thing keeping me from blowing money on the Prinz Eugen right now. I'd bite even if it was OK for variety....but.......
