    Now. What's next :)

    I have Conqueror, Zao and Kurfurst. The first two are absolutely worth the effort. Jury is still out on the Kurfy. That range nerf is a major deal for me. I'm going from 23+ k to 19. Dayum....

    Leaning towards either henry or Yamato. The US Guns just don't get along with me so they are out of the picture.

    The level of crying I am encountering this weekend seems to surpass the normal level... Thank god for weekdays.

    Edit: 10 games today, haven't won a single one....lol
    I dont really care, as I have added XP coins etc to the pile, and dont play to stats... but holy hell. The MOANING. The dead guys always got something stupid to say, or even better the guy that didnt help anyone but stealthed to the edge of the map and spends the rest of the match calling out the others in chat on how they suck.

    God, this fucking CV implosion makes this game so shit. Everyone wants to stay back, you can't push a flank without being spammed by two CVs and there is no good counterplay to CVs minus staying grouped up. If this keeps up, I will look into selling my account.

    When you got 2 T10 CVs on each side you might as well YOLO.

    This was hilarious....

    What you can do with three ships teamed up toggling smoke. This is why Voice Comms should be in the fucking game. You can't play this coordinated without it.

    Fuck this god damned 4 carrier bullshit!

    If you are playing T10 games, you best fully spec for AA or you are going to have a bloody awful time the way it is right now.

    This is NOT fun.

    Like it kinda should be CV should rule the game vs single ships that don't work together

    No, this is just too far of the charts.

    It would be fine if CV's had to manage their resources, but they have a big fucking Hen plopped up on the flight deck, shitting out plane after plane after plane after plane.

    Well, or so it seems :)

    It's already there. I think. All i played was T10 in the Republique. That's why I posted last night. It was a fucking nightmare.

    I had both red carriers on my Republique and it was constant, non-stop torpedoes and bombs. It was impossible for me to have any effectiveness for the team because I was so busy counter-steering torpedoes I was never able to get my turrets in the game.

    They knew exactly what they were doing, and were obviously in comms working as a pair against me.

    And I know this is a polarizing subject, but I still feel if the game had proper in-game voice chat available the teamwork would improve.

    People tend to be just slighly less assholy in voice chat than they do in text chat. Just slightly.

    Well they nerfed grouper AA somewhat. I guess they don’t want a counter at all...

    Welp, That was an interesting game I had.

    Pretty surprised that the Jean Bart got a higher base XP than me this game. Also, playing an anti-air ship during this CV spam makes the game more enjoyable, so that remove like 70% of the ships I enjoy playing during this time. GG WG.

    Also got the Republique Legendary Mod. Completely not worth it. It's way too much take for what you get and you dont even feel the difference.

    Just weekend things.

    I mean, really, what else could I do so that I win this match? Not a dam thing. I had a full salvo out on a buffalo that was somewhat angled at 6 km away right when the match ended. Also seen the luckiest Minotaur ever after I shot it 3 times with full salvos at 10 km and got get instant deleted.

    Like really CVs, it is NOT FUN to be fully attacked almost the whole game by you (and have a fucking bismarck block you're way 3 different times). CV really needs to be fixed for people not playing CV.

    *edit* Another master class of a team.

    Got to love that CV are now the tankest dam thing against HE and fire. This game also was 1.4k damage away from being my top damage game.

    Well I now know that I can bow tank the shit out of an Alaska in my Buffalo at 5-10km. Got into a pvp last night and he was raining AP on me to almost no effect while I chipped him down with HE. He was trying to ram me when the match ended.

    Weekends.. seriously... cant win a match.

    Talk about getting focused on. This loss was my fault apparently, for not trying hard enough... lol I figured the job of an AA cruiser was to support the other boats with AA, Radar and covering pester fire. I was apparently supposed to shoot down all the planes, take the damage from protecting 6 ships in my AA, shoot all the other ships and sink them... Then survive and get all the caps. I was so busy trying not to get sunk by torps and bombs, I literally have no idea what my teammates were doing.

    Lol, it was a fun game nonetheless. I got to use that sweet AA booster. Other team was better no doubt.

    I'll have to watch the replay.

    a few days ago i had a nice ~200k dmg match with my GK. we won, i made 1st place in my team and had more xp than the next 3 ships combined. what happened afterwards? some guy from my team who drove a moskva PM'ed me and called me "a typicla kurfürst player with no clue" and "a moron".

    i'm not sure whether this was a compliment or not o_O

    Yeah I got called useless last night for refusing a Montanas order (from the back of the map no less) to push into a smoke filled cap in my Buffalo "To look for DD's". Apparently my radar lighting up 3 ships in the smoke wasn't enough... lol

    every time. 200k+ game and a loss.

    but had a nice moment in this match when i was down to ~2k health in the last 4 minutes: suddenly a full health kitakaze appeared at 6km. i had strong torpedobeats, dodged everything AND the guy got detonated after three (!) hits from my secondaries. KM 4 lyfe.

    Had this one a few days ago... the Fiji baited me into a trap. Never drive a Buffalo into a closed space. IMG_20190505_131405.jpg

    lol yeah. Fiji definitely has the CQC advantage. My luck even if I got a Buffalo AP salvo off it’d be all overpens too.

    I got the Neustrashimy. It’s a fun boat. I wouldn’t say it’s OP but I like DDs with heals especially since the CV rework. Kidd, Neustra, Groz...

    I did finally get a Des Moines. Its beast reputation is well earned. As with the Buffalo, it's pays to hang back a bit and rain terror down... It's just that there is so much more terror is is able to rain. Get almost dead and I'm shooting every 3 seconds. It's nuts.

    I love how while I have the most time to play on the weekends... it also the worst time to play. I have much better games weekdays. More teamwork, better players, less pissy shit talking.

    Des Moines really shines up close as well, where some dumbass battleship decides to swing around a corner showing you full broadside and you dump 4-5 citadels every 5 seconds into their side, if they don't kill you on the first salvo, they're pretty much gone.

    pro tip: driving a cruiser and trying to ambush a GK during a thunderstorm without cover is a bad idea. even if you bring company.

    Getting anywhere near a German T9/10 BB is suicide in a cruiser. Damn secondaries eat you up faster than you can run away. I try and stay 12-14km out... even then.

    Well, my premium time is up, so I'm done playing the game until they bring back a ranked season arms race or completely unfucked counter CV play.

    WOt is the same way. Both games suck on weekends or during special events.

    Just confirmation bias. It's RNG whether or not you get those players.

    I really wish the planes were just an AI run timed (6-10 minutes) event that brought in 40 planes, they do their attack runs, and the ones that survive come back for another attack. Its like a lair action in a D&D game but to both sides. The maps just feel too small to have the CVs.

    Either way, im still enjoying the game, hope to see some of you out there. I know I played with Business a few times years ago. That was fun.
