Sit awareness, torp armament expert, superintendent, advanced firing training (gives you some ability to camosnipe), basics of detectability and for the finishers probably high alert and aiming expert. That would be my build for a high tier JP dd.

As for the how to play the Sims. I stay at max range and shoot, shoot, shoot. I play it like a CA, but with much greater maneuverability. Get every upgrade you can to help you turn. It will like time to learn to hit anything because of the high arc the shells take. Fire HE all the time.  If you have DD teammates make sure they are between you and the red team. (You will be maneuvering all over the place to avoid being hit.) They will launch torps and will hit you by accident if you get between them and the red team. You generally are making yourself as annoying as possible. This allows your teammates to take much less damage. Keep threatening their CAP. You will draw a lot of attention. I had had 2 BB's and 2 CV's trying to kill me last night. They failed and I was able to cap with help (my help killed the BB's) I dodged 7 torp attacks and 5 dive bomber attacks. I would get the captain skill to allow you to move and turn with a broken engine or rudder. (4 point skills).

Use every island you can to avoid being hit. You can shoot over a lot of the small ones. Getting torp hits are situational. I work toward a ship using islands and try to ambush them. But, if you succeed, it usually gets you wrecked. So, kill or cripple something of value. (BB or high tier CA)

Do not bind anything else to "P" because you can't rebind it. Sigh.

Where to start with ships? I don't know shit about anything in wows. Are there any essential posts about basics, classes and trees?

3 absolutely simple questions from a lazy newbie:

 

-Are low tiers as cancerous as they are in WoT?

 

-Do DDs give a similar experience to lights/meds in WoT?(Asking as a kinda dedicated batchat/LT player.)

 

-Are BBs or more importantly CVs actually fun to play? (From a BC player point of view again)

3 absolutely simple questions from a lazy newbie:

 

-Are low tiers as cancerous as they are in WoT?

Yes and no.

Yes - because there are new people who have no clue what they are doing and being in generally fragile ships, makes it harder to carry.

No - T5 and under are FUN AS SHIT and it isn't nearly as blatant clubbing as low tiers in WOT.

T3-4 BBs are cancer to play.\

-Do DDs give a similar experience to lights/meds in WoT?(Asking as a kinda dedicated batchat/LT player.)

Yes - but it is much more basic.  Know your detection range and that's it for the most part - there are a few modifiers for detectability, but the numbers are nearly as 'hidden' as they are in WOT

-Are BBs or more importantly CVs actually fun to play? (From a BC player point of view again)

Low tier BBs are cancer.  Low tier CVs are OP because AA is nonexistant in low tiers.

Higher tiers things tend to balance out and are both pretty enjoyable.

No, they're actually kind of fun, especially in the Wyoming, CVs and DDs. In fact low tiers are the best fun for DDs IMO.

 

-Do DDs give a similar experience to lights/meds in WoT?(Asking as a kinda dedicated batchat/LT player.)

In that they're stealthy and fragile, yes. However the playstyle is all about taking ground early and then flexing about delivering torps when needed. The US and JP DDs play very differently as well, with JP DDs having excellent torpedoes and being stealthy while the US DDs have better guns. 

 

-Are BBs or more importantly CVs actually fun to play? (From a BC player point of view again)

BBs are great fun to play. People are very bad at driving them and complain too much. 

CVs are fun but very hot and cold. They're working on changing up the MM so you don't get games where you get stomped because the enemy had a fighter deck carrier 2 tiers above you or games where you stomp face because you have strike deck vs no carriers.

Skills for Murmansk?

basic firing training (hi i heard you like extra DPM), situational awareness (WoWs 6th sense, useful for knowing when a minekaze is nearby), torp armament expert (only if you use torps as often as i do... lol), aiming expert (only if you brawl very often and find yourself maneuvering a lot)

3rd level is idk, maybe high alert?, 4th level is definitely between advanced firing training (moar range + more AA range) and demolition expert (HE fires = lol).

Yes you can, and it isn't class restricted like it is in WoT. 

Would be nice if they added the auto-return crew feature like in WOT (or is that xvm doing it?).

That's XVM's feature.

I played WoT vanilla a couple days ago and it didn't autotransfer.

What tiers do CAs get AA-powerup-ability? I had activated my ability on my Furutaka when I saw TBs come in, but when I moused over the icon I realised it was hydroacoustic search ability instead..

 Tier 6. 

Despite Furutaka having dual-purpose mounts, it can't use the AA ability. Looks like its a tier-locked restriction of tier 6-10.

Yeah it's supposed to be based on the number of DP mounts. Giving the Furu that ability would massively improve it IMO.

      I need a game like tanks that isn't stupid. Something I can take a break for 15 minutes and play, and then get back to the other thing I need to be doing. Suggestions please.

      Fuck the FV4202. The tank lacks the firepower to do anything if your team sucks. It cant even farm on them dying. How the hell people 3 mark this? 4k dmg games are uber rare and its super easy to end up with 1k combined if the gun trolls you and your team folds... FFS

      Credited with the Concept 1B tonight. Has anyone got theirs yet? Thoughts?
      EDIT: Nevermind - http://wotreplays.eu/site/5859757#karelia-snoregasm2-concept_1b 
      1 battle, 1 Ace tanker. Has insane armour, is fast as a medium, has no weakspots frontally from what I can tell, has insane gun handling. WTF WG?!

      The Panzer IV from the Girls und Panzer Anime seems to make it into the game.
      https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2021/04/19/update-1-12-1-🇩🇪-pz-kpfw-iv-ausf-h-ankou/

      Funnily enough. It is propably one of the most realistic premium tanks or tanks in general we got in a long time. Despide being from an Anime.

      Been struggling with tier 10 since coming back - jesus christ this is awful. If you don't play something OP you feel like a tier 9 in a tier 10 game. 
      Got an account with a 0 game FV215b that I marked (69 games, just barely 4k dpg lmao) - wound up running the equipment piece that prevents fires and the same directive after the same amount of fires as amount of games in a 10 game session (got lit 3 times in one game...) but after that I never got set on fire again. Totally worth putting those up and giving up vents so you can actually use the HP without a fuel tank fire. Been noticing that a lot of casemate TDs are running new equipment as well (7.5s was pretty much enough RLD to permatrack anything until it dies and it is not anymore. It's closer to 6, so I'm assuming it's the equipment since it also varies heavily.)
       
      907 yoloing with optics+directive is sort of working, I'm keeping 85 but getting good enough of a session without a derp to fall back down after climbing up is so rare with how common the absolutely worst maps are. I have played 8 times the amount of Erlenberg as I have Prokh (assault and encounter enabled), I also get a lot of Kharkov and Abbey that keep showing up too and these maps are just too poorly designed to get a good enough gameplan to fulfill the damage requirements. There's just no play that works well enough. 
       
      I tried tier 8 as well, and it's like a different game played on the same board. You get away with so much stupid shit because of gaps in view range and the overall skill level. It makes me feel like my mechanics are super clean as I can poke in to tanks pre aimed at me and fire, pull into safety/unpennable angle before they fire - but at tier 10 that is just wishful thinking. 
       
      Long way to go, I hate being this derpy in game quality which is what I'm going to work on but tier 10 is so ass..
