  1. TB flooding damage will have to be re-worked. The almost automatic hit rate with TBs will be absurd if you flood people to death. I can care less about the update and would gladly see them disappear. They are certainly broken now and always have been. One good CV player > 5 good ship players. They pretty much have complete control of the match if your's is a dummy always. AA is just too unreliable with how teams have to distribute and move around the game maps. Blobbing for AA means losing on most 15v15 maps. Even then AA is unreliable and takes too much time and the effect is mainl

    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 t

    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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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

  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Done. I just never play it since it's tier 4 and the tier sucks for fun or money making.
  13. 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 ti
  14. 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.......
  15. I will do this as soon as I am online in serious mode, thanks.
  16. I'm not a fan of short range torps on any ship, since past newbie tiers, secondaries on German BBs etc eat you alive aside from players derping your health. Having played with both back and fourth I've fallen in love with the 9.2km SLOWWWWW torps. Now that I'm used to them I get plenty of hits. They reload quick so you can just spam. Great for area denial and smoke, but I find I hit unintended enemies way more frequently than any other torp type on a DD. They're like little ninjas.
  17. Looking for people to division with also. Been solo 99% of my WoWS career and while it's no WoT, I'm sure it's more beneficial to group up.
  18. *Cast Resurrection* I just bought the Sims today, great timing after the visibility/firing nerf, but I was never an invisfirer anyway since I like to scout full time. I'm making good money with it, which is the main reason I bought it, that and it's cheap, works for tier 7 ranked and captain training my Benson. I'm having trouble doing great in it though. I spot well, anti-DD well and am getting top 1-5 exp, but I rarely break 50k damage and mostly stick around 30k, but still get top exp with the spotting and exp bonus. I can't decide on the torps, I keep switching back and fourth. A
  19. This is what I usually get referred to: https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/5qu2pf/flamu_0601_updated_captain_builds/ I've used this as a general idea too: http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/72004-captain-skills-distribution-guide-for-060/
  20. This was my first season of ranked, since I played mostly before it was out. Is there a pattern they've been following for what tier is picked?
  21. Warships today says I mostly play cruisers are do excellent in them. But it also says my key ship is Cleveland which I haven't played since release. I do really like the British cruisers and Russian (only up to Budyonny thus far). I am not so much a fan of Pensacola or New Orleans. I loathe BBs and do worst in them, but then I am at Colorado cockblock and haven't played anything past a Kongo in other lines. I actually favor DDs, I seem to perform significantly better in them, especially the USN line over IJN. I am only on V-170 and love it. I think I would like the Russian line, I do h
