    OMNI. Contact _Potent. We have a recruitment thread in the forum. We really should have a clam page in this section.

    Birkovic reacted to RollerCoaster47 in NoZoup compares Battleships & Cruiser lines   
    All I heard was a mediocre player who makes shitty tutorial videos read stats off a sheet. I stopped listening after I heard "What does the Montana have that the Großer Kurfürst does not? It has nothing, absolutely nothing."
    Apparently having arguably the best AA in the game (aside from perhaps the Des Moines) is nothing. Apparently only having to show about half as much broadside as the Großer Kurfürst does to fire off the rear turrets is nothing. The Montana also takes non-citadel hits better in my opinion, it tanks better than the Kurfürst does as long as you're not showing your citadel area. Not to mention it has a much tighter turning radius.
    Now this isn't me getting on my pedestal and saying the Montana is better, but it's certainly not weaker in every aspect like that fool is saying. I can't even be bothered to watch that cruiser video. Having recently gotten the Des Moines I can say that it's the most fun tier ten I have and probably the most versatile too.

    I've seen people with worse stats and several thousand games interact in chat. I've never understood how one can enjoy being abysmal at a game and a) not trying to improve or B) just finding something else to do.

    You're better off staying on the Kiev and keeping the Ognevoi, that way you get the T9 Kiev, T8 Ognevoi, free T7 Minsk and free T6 Gnevny and you get to skip the Trashkent (which is not really that horribly trash, just requires careful gameplay which is really not easy to do, add to the fact that the Kiev spoils you with its much smaller size and overall clumsiness).
     
    Yup, maybe even try researching the Khaba and then sell both the Kiev and Minsk for big $$$
     
    In other news, stuff from ST was leaked on The Daily Bounce, and there is still some inconsistency in the main branch (the supposed main reain for the rework). TL;DR Podvoisky (t5) has more guns AND higher HE dmg than the Gnevny while having much longer reload. Then there's the Minsk, again with higher HE damage but much faster reload, having approximately the same DPM as the current Kiev while trading higher DPM for worse torps compared to Leningrad. Tashkent remains unchanged. Ognevoi on T8 gets Defensive AA, 8km torps and Udaloi's guns with some stealth-firing capability muh KM DDs, WG pls being a fleet support DD with DPM on the low side. Then there's a Kiev vs Udaloi disbalance, with Kiev being slightly more maneuverable but getting less HP and gun range (remember, it's in the DDL line) while the Udaloi gets Defensive AA, making it an overall better ship. Finally there's Grozovoi, it gets less range than Khaba, 30% less DPM, insane ballistic properties (950 m/s boi), pretty decent torps, workable concealment and Defensive AA.

    155mm or less, go for it. 155mm or more, nope.

    Wait for the update, when the B hull becomes the A hull it will get the current B hull's improved AP. Yeah, stock Nagato is pretty goddamn trash.

    I'd rather see British, French, and Italian ships before seeing any new Russian ships period, but I know what you mean.
    The first paragraph seems to differentiate "destroyer leaders" and "artillery destroyers" as the two lines, but the later paragraphs claim the new line will be more "traditional".  I think what will happen is that the current Khabarovsk line will continue to be dominated by large, artillery-based destroyers, while the new line will have better torpedoes and less emphasis on the guns.  They even say that they'll be similar to the German ones.

    It depends which one. You need to check in game to see which ship has the most DPS in the large caliber AA guns. MAA is good on the Neptune, but I think the Minotaur might be better with AFT since the small caliber (highest DPS) guns get to 6.0km and the large out to 7.2 km. Although you could go either way with the Minotaur and be fine.
    Upgraded Neptune <85 mm = 330 dps , >85mm = 193 (501 MAA) dps
    Minotaur <85 mm = 376 dps , >85mm = 118 (306 MAA) dps

    What MntRunner said.  I generally build my commanders around what I'm going to want on the tier 10, since that's where the commander will ultimately end up.  Minotaur gains more from AFT, since MAA doesn't affect the 76.2mm AA guns that are the bulk of the AA power.

    Gamescom Camo has a 50% credit increase.
    A 100k damage tier 10 in the Kutuzov will normally give me 450k - but it jumps up to close to 750-800k with a gamescon camo.

    @Sidus_Preclarum try watching the youtuber Aerroon's videos on the ship. He has atleast 3 decent videos there. It helped me a bunch. 
    I had to adjust too when I first got it. This was my first ship where I really began to differentiate my speed instead of mainly running full stop or flank speed. I saw another poster on here suggesting to often push at 1/2 or 3/4th speed, while using chat. This is of course only when your team is in a position to push  In general I played the first 3-5 minutes at ranges of 10-15 km angled/with front towards the hostiles. In my (limited) experience the complaints about the RNG on the guns is overrated.
    Sorry about maybe simplifying, but I'm still new in this game.

    However, when tanks used to give you the gold value during a vehicle sale you could put in a support ticket to get the additional amount. You could always try this, but it might not be worth the effort since it's just credits you would be getting.

    It's pretty badass.  It pounds CAs and DDs hard.  My 1st match I said screw it and lets see what this puppy can do and ended up doing just shy of 80K damage and even soloed a Bayern at 3/4 HP.  I sailed away and he didn't.  It's fun as hell and worth buying, plus you get the 10 skill captain to use from the missions.

    Further to that, the Bismarck is distinctly unexceptional without the secondaries. If the hydro gets a nerf it's going to be the only thing that makes her stronger than Tirpitz.

    First ever game in the Kutuzov, but bear in mind I only have a 13 point captain so far, so no Concealment Expert or other extra skills yet.

    2 3marks in 2 days, the skoda was more of a break from the jpe though which has actually given me far more trouble than any other recent 3 mark I've done which was only compounded by the lag spikes and arty focus so horrible, it would embarrass the tog. 155 games for the marks, meanwhile the T95 at second longest only took 119. The surprising thing is that it was so hard even though I was pulling #1 dpg NA in the bloody thing.(3,752 as of this post)


    3 mark game for anyone who wants to see dumbness
