I wonder if the arpeggio reward ships are temporary or permanent. Haven't read in much detail the news post, but It doesn't mention either case.
It does seems sketchy that WG would give away free crew-retraining ships so easily.
It wouldn't surprise me if they forgot to put up the disclaimer that they're temporary ships, only to pull off another terrible damage control stunt like with the humble bundle murmansk fiasco.
Imagine how many ships you can skip with 600k free exp.
How the hell are you supposed to deal with Cleveland's in the Konigsberg/Nurnberg? They seem to be able to citadel pen you constantly but you can't do shit to them in return even if they broadside you.
not exploit, just a random bug which sometimes can give you 5000x free xp of what you got for that battle instead of 5k free xp
it activates when you complete one of the sub missions, read the previous thread
>Nagato is literally 3km away heading straight at me
>fire a broadside
>all 8 hit
>do 2K damage
It is. Zuihou never targeted me. He was the last one to die and was hauling ass away. Managed to whittle down all his HP with AP at max range.
You know, UNDERWATER CITADEL meme aside, Clevelands are really freaking fragile. You hit them anywhere and they lose a few thousand HP.
How do air superiority IJN carriers even work? I just got my ryujo and one of the flight controls gets 3 fighters, but don't they just lose to USN fighters to begin with? I was planning on going balanced either way
Furutaka's bad only because it's a complete change from the Kuma playstyle. If you've played higher-tier CAs and know that playstyle it's actually not too bad, since its guns are quite powerful and its torpedo arc is quite good for an IJN CA.
Confirming the exp boost in on USA, did not get as much as I would like due to a fairly average game, however it will be interested to see if they roll me back, hopefully not, I like my new boat(s).
I just started WoWS and I somehow have to get gut, get to Tier V and THEN sink 30 ships while a Tier V to get my shipfu skins and pictures?
I don't think I can do this guys.
Why was naval technology so advanced for the time compared to tank and airplane technology?
Just look at the battleships from 1910 compared to the tanks and airplanes of the same year. they were still using bi-planes and tanks that looked like a metal box, yet the kongo was designed during that time.
because warships as we know them have been developed for at least half a century, since the first ironclads, compared to airplanes, a technology that had barely existed for a decade, and tanks, which didn't exist yet in 1910.

what the actual fuck
>a whole shitload of being ineffectual in tier 10 games
Enough autism for one day. Nighty night, /wowsg/.
This stupid event is going to completely ruin the game isnt it? People going full autism over trying to score killing blows on DDs and CAs and ignoring BBs instead of actually focusing on how to win the round.
>get Kraken achievement
It's improving the game. People are actually focus-firing ships down instead of ignoring cruisers and destroyers and pretending they're not going to do anything. And cruisers actually go kill cruisers and destroyers instead of trying to go HE meme all over BBs.
Battleships still get killed. They're the dessert. :^)
why the fuck is mogami a tier 8
>inb4 155mm AFT memes
if you compare the myoko with 203s the mogami is literally worse in every way
>significantly less AA
>shit MM, have to deal with yamatos
Yeah, I guess I just had trouble adjusting before.
I just came back from a long break and moved to the Aoba, but I enjoyed the last bit of grind I had to do in her.
Unless you mean yolo charge, then there's no choice now, is there? If it's invisi-torpping from outside of the cap, then it's easier.
But then again, if it took so long that a BB have to enter a cap, then something went wrong.
Because statistically, the Mogami (which realistically speaking, everyone runs the 155mm with AFT) out-performs the Myoko. And so WG made it a higher tier. The two ships used to be swapped on the tech tree.
For using the free xp.
If the company has something to lose or it hurts other players, they'll often ban people who abuse bugs, despite it being their own fault.
in this case jewgaming are omegajews so they're definitely going to punish people in some way.
>they cannot prove the malicious intent too
they really don't need to.
Like that one guy, he got 949k free xp in a game where he got 3.8k normal xp. Not even a child could think that was intentional after playing long enough to reach tier 5.
all they need to prove is that you used the free xp.

Who else has these angry, angry feelings?
So how does the IJN vs Merica CV matchup works?
More fighter planes per squad and 2 fighter squads available.
How am I supposed to torp stuff up when the entire map is covered in fighters?
You can curse the match up and send a sacrificial squadron in hopes of distracting the opponent long enough to make a successful bombing run.
Or if he's not dominating the airspace well enough, you might be able to find opportunities without needing to take losses.
Either way you are at disadvantage there.
>It's not enough
Best (or "OP" if you prefer) ship per class between tier V to VIII ?
So far from what I searched:
DD: Minekaze at tier V
BB: Nagato at tier VII

I'm nearly done with Myogi. Kongou is better than her, r-right?
Here is the image he posted, since you can't view it if you don't log in.
mursuki a cute. cute!
so much easier to play than fubuki
Here's the first thread
>Gentle reminder that this IS a bug, and that abuse of it may result in actions taken.
It's still in beta. There are a couple of German and Soviet ships but those nations' techtrees are not yet complete.
Currently Germany has only cruisers and USSR only destroyers.
Just use your wot account, that's what I'm doing.
Free XP bug has been hotfixed )))))))))))
I have every right to feel disappointed.
1.1m free xp would make my year.
these guys have also confirmed that the bug has been fixed, and they didn't end up with millions of XP after finishing the mission.
>my warships.today rating has plummeted by a shitload, because I spent the whole day killstealing and focus-firing on cruisers instead of playing like I have a brain
>I don't get millions of free XP because the bug's been fixed
I hated "Kill X medium tanks in a single battle" missions in WoT for the exact same reason, it makes everyone play like shit, and it drives you nuts when someone else finishes off the guy you've been slicing away for ages.
Dunno, but it took WG over 10 hours to implement the fix and stop people from getting shitloads of XP.
The bug was first discovered at around 09:00 (UTC+8), that was when the first forum post went up.
Arpeggio show is way, way better than the Kancolle one
Arpeggio Takao is the only good character design in that though
Takao, Yukikaze and Zuikaku and maybe Hyuuga are the only superior designs in Arpeggio.
Let the second day begin. 8 more cruisers and 15 destroyers to go.
I want to bring Akiducky and Teruducky to a fancy restaurant, order a bunch of delicious food, and not let them eat any. At the end of the meal, I will have the waiter clear all the leftovers and throw them out.
When they come back to their barracks, there will be a single can of sardines and two bowls of steamed barley for the two of them.
>Suffering with zuiho for aircraft kills
>mfw when I learn the cone TB spread is literally worthless
Only 3 of the 4 torpedoes cone inwards, and it's only at extreme ranges.
The fourth torpedo goes on a perfectly straight line. This results in a huge gap between the third and fourth torpedo
Research a way to make Wargaming games not suck.
I'd probably need more than just 1 million XP though, I would need all of Harvard, Oxford and Stanford to pool all of their researchers together in order to solve this mystery.
I'm a pretty big weeb when it comes to ship designs but man the Iowa's are probably one of the best looking ships ever designed.
I wonder when wg will provide a response on what happens to those who got free exp.
I made sure to do somewhat poorly my final game and convert a bunch of dubloons in hope to make it difficult enough that I slip by, but time will tell.
As a fellow weeaboo, I'd like to chime in and let you know you're wrong.
Post your recent screenshots. Bonus points for RNG shenanigans.
Detonated a full HP Minekaze with literally my first shot of the match.
I went back to check out some of the stats when I was replying to someone here about it and man it made me really regret selling it for the Izumo.
That ship was probably the most fun I had grinding the whole line, I wish I wasn't too goddamn poor to rebuy it.
anyone in EU with a T6 CV wants to have some fun?
And it's a 1 point captain too, shit
At least until the captain gets some decent skills
Pretty sure it's the same as a fully researched Kongo. I sold mine so I can't compare.
What if someone just doesn't want it? They could at least let you destroy it.
I mean, I'm a weeb and I don't mind them. But I know there are a bunch of people who don't want anything to do with anime because reasons.
>get into a match
>need cruiser kills
>2 cruisers, 6 BBs, and 4 DDs
Ok I just fought my first battle
They sent me an email to enter this code so I have the Diana cruiser, I just sunk some asshole
how the fuck do I research ships, what is all this clutter ffs, the ui is horrible
you play a game and you get ship experience
with the ship experience, you can use to research the next ship in the line
to see how much ship experience you need, look at the ship you want and use math
I honestly don't understand the design choice for Haruna.
Is she supposed to be like an emo turtle or something? At least she doesn't look like a complete twat like the rest of them
I forgot my SHAZAM. Oh well.
>being a bote who's afraid of water
Their event was bullshit. It was fun when you get to fucking lasers, but not when it's done to you.
don't forget about the incredibly awful detection range AND a modicum of armor. Which in reality helps BBs pen you instead of overpen. Myoko is so thinly armored it's actually an advantage
I'm literally using my secondaries flags on a Mogami I've specialized to DD hunt.
Secondaries are only useful if you plan on getting up close and personal with DDs; otherwise, they're a waste. If you're a BB who relies on secondaries for DD standoff, you are already dead, and they secondaries don't do much against other BBs, so they're not useful for brawling, either.
the Nagato's and the Izumo/Yamato's get decent enough range that you'll see them go off reasonably often if you're not playing like a bitch, but they're never actually that useful because they can't hit shit even if you're fighting a BB. They'll get a few lucky hits every now and then it's nice in the odd occasion when they do sink a DD or something but they never become a consistent source of damage.
how are your arpeggio missions anons ?
>15 games yesterday
why do I just kill nothing but BBs and half of the CVs that I saw all day
in related news I'm not looking forward to the plane kill mission
47 battles, 30 cruisers killed, 150 planes killed, 0/30 destroyers killed.
Planes were the easiest, even if it was suffering. As a Zuiho I managed at least 10 plane kills a battle through various shenanigans, while it took like 28 battles to get 30 cruiser kills, despite having an average damage of 78k through 23 battles yesterday.
WHY THE FUCK WOULD THEY WANNA GO THERE WHEN THERE'S NO CAP
That's my point.
I would have to grind out credits to rebuy a Myogi, then grind out a Hosho, and Zuiho and then the Ryujo to get a ship that I don't want to play just to complete a mission.
>>ramming a ship destroys my full health ship instantly
it deals damage equal to your maximal amount of hp to the enemy and damage equal to their maximal amount of hp to you, also applies flooding
but that succubus will not stick any dicks in you!
well may be if you really ask..
people are already making mods to allow you to play them without the anime effects and with the standard voice
Which ship is the best for getting fires ?
T6 and up
Treeshima is never not funny.
>literally just sailed across my screen
Battleships or cruisers. But with cruisers, you can also do the planes mission.
Jap BB line will get you a Yamato, but desu you'd be better off going down one of the cruiser lines to begin with, as they're the most versatile and aren't as unforgiving of mistakes as BBs or DDs can be.
>erp kongo destroyed by ordinary kongo
know you place, bitch, i'm the queen here!
>We will not be removing any Free XP from anyone's account.
fucking slavs REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>make a mistake in a BB
>one-shot by a torpedo salvo
Everything can be one shot if you fuck it up, but CAs don't punish missing salvos as much or going to the wrong place on the map because they're able to correct mistakes quicker than BBs can.
USN BB's are what I'd recommend. Strong armor and a lot of guns.
They're slow as shit and low wyoming has low range, but new york can reach 18k which is as far as you'll ever need.
>tfw went to sleep instead of grinding more
>tfw completed planes today
>tfw would've got the free xp if I didn't sleep
16% range increase mod and the range upgrade puts it out to 18.11 to be exact.
AHAHAHAHAHA, thanks for the 150k free xp for my shit game>>127212037
>there are fewer and fewer destroyers in games
Hey fags, can one of you stop sucking dick and do me a favor.
I need the picture of the "I did everything I could, there was nothing I could do." guy from CBT. Except I need the picture of Yamato sinking IRL with his face shopped in.
If you could do that it would be great.
Kongo and Fuso shit all over cruisers. Wyoming, New York and New Mexico would too if they were slightly faster.
>getting torped for full HP in anything tier 5+
You have to be an incredible shitter for that to happen.
>they're able to correct mistakes quicker than BBs can.
>hit rudder to switch flank
>18-inch APs penetrate your citadel-pussy after a few seconds
The only thing I agree with is that you can shoot like a retard but then again the damage is so small you will do no damage if your accuracy is lacking.
No, they dont. No body keeps snapshots of every user's account from every moment in time.
>He thinks databases for games are based on clock cycles instead of server updates which you have to do instead of play
Then again they probably wouldn't bother with everything anyway
I said stop sucking dick fag. I was asking if one of you fags had it from the CBT days. Considering most of you are aim assist using OBT shitters you probably don't have it.
>>getting torped for full HP in anything tier 5+
>You have to be an incredible shitter for that to happen.
it happens but rarely
here me destroyed nagato in 1 salvo from 9 km, was pretty proud :3
i have a gun and torpedo!
>3 BBs sailing directly to our base in a straight line across the whole map

I dont normally get angry over this game or even care about losing but the sheer stupidity of my allies in this match made me lose faith in humanity again.
You can always go back to reddit you piece of shit if you want your feelings validated. I had a request and the first response isn't to fufill that request. You can either ignore my post or continue sopping your emotional vagina.
you buy them automatically after every game
at higher tiers the price is noticeable
no gold ammo
on ijn dd, for what purpose?
i use the premium repair party on the russian dd, also i obviously use camo but i made it invisible since it's ugly on ijn ships
30k for camo + repair party are not cheap... i lack money a lot
Thank you anon for being useful. Have a great day and have a bote butt.
>being this triggered that you respond within a minute
Why has Takao class got the best seaman demons?
Just give it up, you're stuck with us until the bitter end.
If it weren't for high tier destroyers BBs would be able to lead charges into enemy territory rather than have to worry about going in circles trying to avoid massive torpedo walls from invisible DDs up to 20km away that you nor anyone else will ever have a chance to see.
NERF DESTROYER TORP RANGE TO NO MORE THAN 10km
Torpedoes in general ruin this game. They eliminate any merit to just closing in and knife fighting.
knife fighting botes is the best fun. This game was more fun when people were new and would take their Yamato and Montana and sail at each other then dance around a death circle with all guns blazing.
>stand up from long session of warboats
>go to your bathroom
The whole point of 1/4 is to be able to speed up quickly to dodge torpedoes and TBs. Retards who can't even do this much deserve what they get.
>fires are less than 18% of damage BBs take at any tier
That's for one fire, you can have up to 4 and almost always have 2 when being shot at by a cruiser.
shit adds up and is significantly more damaging than AP to your angled armor.
No. Statistically all the fires caused by cruisers, DBs and secondaries are only 15% of damage that BBs take during games. Only 25% of damage caused by cruisers to BBs are fires.
So, we got arpeggio Kongo but there were other ships of her class datamined in one of the patches.
Any news on how to get them ?
Your homosexuality test is positive, congratulations.
I'm a little girl.
I was talking about Mogamin, not about you. No idea what is going on anymore.
Well, they did it. They made a ship worse than the Karlsruhe
All of my games, regardless of how long I live or how well I do, end all too similarly.
In nine out of ten games I've played with this ship I've died in fewer than 10 hits. If a battleship so much as farts in my direction I get hit in the citadel.
You may not see it in my writing, but I am pissed at having wasted my time in the German cruiser line.
I was with my little starting group actually.
No platoon, just wondering if there was anything else I could do. This guy used his Diver's to set up his TB's, and I feel real dumb for dying after only killing a DD.
Not him, but I'll take a stab at the same.
>have to kill destroyers
>destroyer population plummets
>keep getting put in tier 10 games
>carrier population coming back
You know what? I'm going to go watch some anime and then come back and maybe everything will be happy again.
The German ships are actually pretty good after Karlsruhe. Maybe you're just not suited for their play style.
Why has Yorck got to be so damn mediocre it's killing me
It doesnt seem to excel in any category.
>centerline and superfiring turret layout
i seriously hope you don't think 4x2 describes the layout of the turrets. Kawaiichi is 6x2, for example.
Like I said, it doesn't matter if I top the scoreboard or am first to die, I always go down whenever a battleship or cruiser manages to hit me with AP, anywhere on the ship. Please at least tell me I have something to look forward to in the German line.
Fucking lel, is this the whole event?
Considering pic related was an actual thing and a complete unhyped surprise at that, I was expecting something less pathetic.
>mfw I need to set on fire 254 more ships
At least I have my superior tea-slurping Bongo
so you can drag a lower tier ship into a higher tier game? The little guy also managed to somehow TK one of his teammates as well.
>tfw you try to ram another battleship and you get within 0.1m of him but you miss
I thought it was a set up for some lame pun
Trading in a little bit of maneuverabiltiy for better camo and literally half again the firepower is a complete no-brainer for any IJN destroyer captain that isn't a complete retard.
There's a flag that reduces ramming damage you take. You get it for ramming someone and surviving.
Wow, a whole 0.1km difference with the upgraded Bucky. (And 0.4 better compared to Hatsuharu.) Also, half again the torps and better ones to boot and guns that can actually lay a hurt on an irate yankee or vodka DD on your case or outright fuck up their shit if you play it right.
The speed and turn radius are more than good enough unless you are a completely braindead shitter and are compensated for several dozen times over by the massive firepower advantages.
Not him but I can only see fucking Clevelands everywhere with my Kongo and they seem impossible to citadel or do damage to them without switching to HE. The only time I citadelled one was a 20km vertical shot.
Cleveland has a weird citadel placement. She's got two boiler room, one at the waterline slightly behidn the bridge superstructure and one slightly afore of the rear superstructure. The funnells don't go straight down and the middle of the ship at the waterline has no citadel hitbox. Takes a bit of getting used to - instead of center of mass, you have to aim at roughly 1/3 the ships lenght from the either end.
You have four fucking kilometres of play with the 10km torps. If the speed and turn radius are not good enough for you with that, you're the greatest turboshitter to have ever existed.
yes, if there's a target in range and it's within the gun's field of fire it'll just fire off rounds with no player input
you can set it to focus a certain target if you want though
>first game with the Königsberg
>on ocean, son of a bitch
>end up with confederate, kraken, 200 shell hits, 4 citpens, and six torp hits and flooding
Oh man this feels so much better than that hellscape that is the Karlsruhe, finally some range for my guns.
>enemy minekaze shoots our myoko with like 256 hp twice and either misses or does no damage

Trust your instincts, use the force.
