this is a fun and exciting mechanic and should remain in the game completely unchanged because of how enjoyable and fair it is
My first ever Witherer award.
>70,000 fire damage
There was a very upset Nagato on the enemy team that match.
Obligatory git gud
Shit flinging aside, it's an incredibly easy thing to fix. The odds of having your turret knocked out permanently should be lower the fewer turrets you have - so the Ognevoi would start a match with a far lower chance for turrets to break than, say, the Aurora. But the percentage should also change dynamically throughout the match.
I find the ability to lose an entire turret permanently a pretty interesting gameplay mechanic. It forces players to think carefully about maintaining their course under fire, and seriously punishes captains who get their T crossed and take concentrated fire on their front and rear.
But WG did make a series of live-action short films for World of Tanks a few years ago. I forgot what it was called so I can't give you the youtube link, but it was on the FTR blog back when SilentStalker wasn't hired by Armored Warfare devs.
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.
But it is fun. Kinda.
Wish this turret destruction mechanism would fuck off though.
so far I've played 3 games in my russian DDs
1 of them I had half of my turrets knocked out
1 I had all of my turrets knocked out
the third I got detonated by the 2nd hit I took
I just want to die
Getting your turrets KOed is a recurring thing in these boats.
What really pisses me off, though, is when you get into a knifefight with another DD, get your steering/engine knocked out, repair, and then get your steering/engine knocked out again. For the next 1:30 you're a sitting duck, and as good as dead.
Mikhail cruschev looks pretty good actually. That thing is going to be the ultimate gunboat especially with its smoke
If I were a Russian fanboy or had more disposable income I'd buy one for sure
Ranked is really hard this season
Everybody figured out that DDs are the way to go and that cruisers are shit so now I have to actually try to win matches now
Not really worth the butthurt imo, I'd consider it if I could at least div with someone from here
It's hard because all the DDs on my team don't realise they need to cap and spot and instead just shoot cruisers and die.
I don't have a picture, but I was in Akihabara recently and passed a gaming cafe with a big Girls und Panzer/Arpeggio sign outside full of computers running WoWS.
They also had an Oculus Rift demonstrator, but I didn't try it because I didn't want Facebook to upload my thoughts.
I'm seriously considering ignoring the T5 stealth skill, and instead getting the one that lets you use your damaged engine/rudder on top of advanced fire training.
After all, I'm not gonna be sneaking around anyone with a soviet DD. And even with the skill any other DDs will detect me before I detect them anyway, so might as well make sure I'm not completely fucked over by RNG during a dogfight.
What does /wowsg/ thinks?
Even worse, people still think IJN DD's are good for ranked, so it's not rare to have an all-benson team against a team with half fubukis, which of course ends up in all the buckys slaughtered.
It really comes down to personal preference anon. In my opinion, with the fire chance nerf - I'm gonna take Demo Expert. If you find yourself with a knocked out engine often, and are dying because of it - go with Last Stand.

Look at this:
Why do these fucks run their mouths when they're absolute shit? Do they realize people can't look them up and see how shit they are?
Who the bloody fuck averages 25k in a Fuso or NM? He's not good in any specific type of ship.

I'd say try and get one boat you really like for each tier so you can div with people whenever.
What should I use for my 1/2mil upgrades for the mikhail?
Is that really the high point of that line? I've started to hate it.
That damn shell flight time really kills that ship, and range too. It really need to go under 8 km to reliably delete someone with AP. I would not go into long range artillery duel even against tier 5 German or Murmansk with it.
Well I don't have personal experience, but from playing other lines I can say that USN CAs are literally the LEAST scary boats.
Pic related, here it is.
It's a good book, for those of you who are interested in it, you should definitely get it. It's not that expensive either (assuming they're still in stock, haven't checked). Mine was a first-print preorder.
Hotel is literally the qtest.
Lots of good boats at 8, 9 I'm gonna go with Iowa, 10 Hotel.
Let me guess, you're from the US East Coast?
It's almost 6AM. I should go to bed now.
nyet, one is the actually game and the other is just pinned to the taskbar.

Why make the ARP quest such boring grind?
Why not just let players enable the alternative graphics and voices?
Or at least make it more interesting than "burn this # times, shoot planes down # times."
It's making the game unnecessarily un-fun until you reach the goal.

apparently the game actually has a decent soundtrack but I've never actually listened to it at all
The game's OST of course!
Funnily enough it's basically all I listened to the whole time I was powered through the grind from my Nagato to my Yamato
Probably my best time with the game so far

Where are your over-the-top alternating X's, then?
Right now you're literally just ironic shitposting tier.
But hitting unsuspecting BBs w/ torps is so satisfying. I don't care what you guys think. Jap DDs are really fun, you guys just don't get it
At Closed Beta Kitakami was tier 8 ship which most beater considered op, 5x5 torpedo placement in each ports, but nevertheless BBs and CVs can kill her, my personal experience with playing with or against Kitakami was exciting, defeat her was easy to hard, the only way to defeat her was to outrange with artillery of Cruiser or Battleship. Otherwise you'll get "Super Kitakami-sama dayo".
I'm sensing True Kai Ni.
I'm a total dubstep pleb. It's my guilty pleasure. I've been looking for OST 128 for weeks, but I've never found out what it was called until today. Thanks for the link, you've made me a happy shitter.
There is a disgustingly low amount of good ARP doujins, just as disgustingly low as the actual amount of fires set by my Aoba with Demolition Expert today. 20% my ass, I can easily set shit on fire twice as much on the Cleveland.
Hotel: Literally, the QTest.
Whats the best IJN cruiser? Obviously having in account the opposition that you find in the specific tier.
>tfw you will never be a true mama bote
A-actually statistically speaking the average Britbong today has healthier teeth than the average Americuck thanks to a better health care system.
when i play, i identify myself with my bote and i ain't need any men on my deck :^)
actually they don't want to increase the game age rating
It's actually Russian laziness. If they had people on them they'd have to have two clients because Germany wouldn't allow it.
Also they'd have to actually animate stuff like people manning AA and repair parties running around which would be effort.
Better to pretend they're all just radio controlled botes playing robot wars
Er sorry, the HE has high speed, but the AP is pretty slow.
Go to profile.
Look at the ranks.
Irrevocable ranks will be labeled as such.
>actually follow the treaty to the letter
>still manage to produce better ships than all of the other countries that followed it, and the ones that didn't
think long term senpai.
Wargaming balances everything based on statistics.
Therefore my burger boats are gonna be buffed to kingdom come while your Nip boats (like the Zao most recently) will be nerfed.
Just got into a 3 DD vs 1 Tirpitz fight in ranked.
I could have won if I had made some slightly different choices, I think. Should I swap concealment for acquisition? There are so many fucking DDs in ranked, that 20% boost to torp detection might be nice. On the other hand, that 14km detection range for a BB is also nice.
Div up, hope you have prem, don't listen to shitters saying you need free-xp, I got top hull and propulsion within 30 games. Also use flags.
The FCS module is useless, you won't actually hit anything beyond 17km.

What the fuck is wrong with people.
Just started playing Battlestations: Pacific after multiple failed attempts to launch it and figure out how to get around GFWL.
Aside from the flight controls being near impossible with the mouse, this game is really fun, when do I sink the Yamato? I want to replay that mission about 20 times
i feel so silly
i travelled my whole city to buy one thing and then realized i suddenly forgot the pin code of my cc which i use for several months... i just never really thought what it was when i typed it and here i thought about it and.... they looked at me suspicious there
time to play botes i think
>trying to get rid of a majority
Sorry m8, you're the one who needs to leave.
>Not liking cute boats
What the fuck dude
Kirishima is the cutest.
non-bear Kirishima, Ashigara and loli Zuikaku are qt
So is Kotono/Yamato's 2nd mental model.
But I wouldn't expect you to know them given filthy 2ndary
Doesn't help that the Takaos overshadow the Myokos.
Maya is very cute.

Nice mods you have over there. I see they are spending their time on the forums wisely.
But it seems like the OP tried to make a mod and the text for the German characters wasn't supported by his computer or something.
I JUST WANT A WIN
FUCK THAT SOUTH CAROLINA THOUGH
ONE SHOT THAT BITCH AND IT FELT GOOD.
Is of ok strategy mein frund :^)
Not true at all. IJN DDs dont have enough time to change their course and stay hidden when they detect me in my RU DDs. Whenever I see that one has detected me, 80% of the time we are headed directly towards each other and they are in the middle of turning around with their side exposed to me. And seeing that I go 43kts I can close the difference in our detection radius' in no time.
It also has piss-poor range and Japanese cruiser-like citadels. I always love coming across them in my cruisers at all tiers because I love chewing them up - AP or HE, they will melt ridiculously fast at any range.
There's nothing quite like the feel of seeing 4 citadel ribbons pop up with one salvo at an Atlanta. Poor sods...
I still made massive cred gainz and denied enemy cap (^:
RU DDs are complete shit. Their models are larger and the detection is off the charts. This lets cruisers beat them down, unlike USN and IJN DDs. If you bring a RU DD into rank, pls end yourself.
Atago was a better investment than this trash.
You seem to be mistaking inherent stats of ships with shitty players who are retarded beyond belief.
IJN DDs have no fucking problem staying away "GUYS PLEASE SHOOT ME IM RIGHT HERE" voDDkas. IF they choose too. But if they're dumb enough to head right at you, well.
Anyone else feel like they haven't nerfed turning enough? USN BBs are the worst, they turn on a fucking dime, has WG not heard of water placement? Something that large can't move water like it was nothing. Fucking dumb.
>"I'm gonna go to C"
>This shitter immediately starts talking shit about how dumb I am for going to C
>Most of the team follows me and our DDs to C.
>Shitter and his shitty friend talk shit literally the entire game
>He says, "I still got a kill"
kek desu this was the most satisfying win I have had in a while.
As I understand, at their top speeds the big fat botes generally turned tighter than the little speedsluts.
I'd imagine it's because the deeper hulls of the big botes means more lateral resistance from the water, while the little botes are so shallow their momentum fights their turn.
or something holy shit i need to get a real education how even does physics work????
>Wanting NM to not only have shit range, shit accuracy, and shit speed, but also have a shit rudder so that all it has left going for it is fantastic armor
>Which you will then plant torpedoes in and completely negate
Why not just give torpedoes a homing mechanism? One that targets NM only.
You must be doing things wrong. I've shoved torps on BBs at 6km on a Hatsuharu and all of them hit every time since last update. Hell, I've taken down a mouth-breathing Aoba the same way too.
Just to elaborate a little bit on why IJN, I think most people agree that their BBs are better at almost every tier and you get some really amazing boats like Kongo, Fusou, Nagato, Amagi, and Yamato. Literally the only major downside of the IJN line is the Izumo.
At first glance, Hakuryu's loadouts of 4-2-2 and 2-3-3 seem to stomp all over the only viable Midway loadout; 1-2-2, because faster bombers and more flexibility.
This isn't true in practice, however, as most people are simply not good enough to micromanage 8 squads. In theory, a Hakuryu should always have Air Superiority, however, her fighters have the least ammo in the game, and cannot kill a Midway Squadron 1on1, or even a bomber squadron, because Midway's planes are simply too healthy. Hakuryu's 100 plane hangar is also lacking in comparison to Midway's 136 planes. It isn't uncommon for Hakuryu to run out of fighters or TBs in either loadout, while Midway has a hard time losing all it's planes save fighters.
While both carriers seem to have roughly the same strike potential (12v12 TBs and 12v12 or 14/15 DBs), keep in mind that Midway's planes are much more likely to survive AA, meaning more armanent in the water/in the air. USN torps do 9867 damage, while IJN ones do 8567, and USN HE bombs do max 7500 while IJN ones do max 4600, so there's a noticeable imbalance there too. Also, USN TBs and DBs perform much better under Defensive Fire, especially against CAs and BBs, and the tight USN TB spread is also great for murdering DDs.
Lastly, Midway's Hull is better. You have non-meme AA and an actual torpedo belt, meaning you can survive CVcide, or at least more then 1 wave.
tl;dr Theory-crafting proposes that Hakuryu is better, but the way people play means that Midway is more effective.
>Midways who use fighters
gotta protect your TBs from those nasty nip fighters :^)
Also watch Raskeria, he's really good at getting Clear Skies with just 1 Midway fighter, because strafe
I don't understand what you're saying about Hakuryu though
T8 USN CV and T6 IJN CV player here
I would say USN CVs beat IJN CVs everyday. Sure, two squandrons of fighter will fuck you up. But what you will use that other people doesnt use is the manual charge for your fighter squad. Meaning you will probably kill +50% of their fighters in one take. Like 90% of all the players ive met doesnt do manual charges.
Now, the problem isnt manually charging or not. The problem is fucking retard pleb scrub disgraces whores fuckups that decide to go for fighter mod because they didnt recieve any love as a child. Sure you can try to manually charge them can kill most, but you will have a hard time. However, you will always end up with more XP than the cockmongrel that plays fighter mod.
Man, I just wish there were more of them. I don't care how OP, they rape DD scum and BB scum alike and feed me plons. Lack of CV, I honestly believe, is like a broken link in the chain of balanced matches.
>usable strike-package after t4 until t9
what? Are you saying manually charging is ineffective? Because thats wrong. Yeah I would agree on that note. Ranger was probably the hardest to get through, indepedence was a really fast and enjoyable ride for me however
Why is line of sight so fucked in this game? I get spotted through entire islands and mountains by other ships, not just planes. What the fuck? How can I be a sneaky DD if people can see me through solid earth.
No I'm saying that the only viable loadout for USN CVs between t4 and t9 is stock, which is decent at everything, but great at nothing. Unlike IJN CVs, which greatly benefit from upgraded flight-control modules.
I'd ask if you enjoy suffering, but you already went through 10 tiers of USN cruisers.
The problem is, the current CV changes means fighters are not meant to engage in each other. It's all about the new strafe and because a USN's fighters has more HP, Size and damage means it will destroy IJN's fighters. Hence why right now, the USN's CVs are more stronger which is stupid.
I really dont understand WG in this point. How freaking hard can it be to make a balanced gameplay?
They should have just made both USN and IJN fighters equally strong and then focused on the difference between bombers and torps. Since the one with the best fighters is the one who will dominate the field.
Also why I think IJN CV suck is because of 4man squadrons, you try flying a torp squadron into a USN boat and it will get shot down in no time
Is rank even worth it? I've played through about 5 ranks and I think I'm fine with Random Battle.
They give out free special T10 Khabarosk. Which have main gun replaced by mosin nagants
Because wargaming is incompetent. The latest patches makes so many bugs for CVs and they don't even fix it even when they ran their shitty game through a public test.
Also with the IJN's CVs, not only is it 4 man squads, their HP is utter shit and the carrier has no AA. If you try to CVide, all your planes are gone if they're a USN carrier. Before the nerf to flooding, you could at least have a fallback to damage but now its 20% flooding and your torps and bombs do the same damage from t4 to t10 with the same 2 TB squads from t4-8.
AA is also broken this patch and can delete whole squads in 1 tick.

I'm so fucking mad that Des Moines' AA sucks balls. It's the ULTIMATE FUCKING AA CRUISER AND ITS AA SUCKS
If they had enough damage to actually destroy planes, that range might actually be good.
But the DM doesn't actually kill more planes than a Montana or Yamato, and has crap guns compared to other cruisers, so why would you ever want a DM?
You are better off with a Hindenburger, because that crusier can at least stay close to the BBs and use its gun while provigin AA barrage.,

you're shit ingame and you're shit in real life
I don't think he's a shill or anything, but I think because I'm better at ships than I ever was at tanks I'm noticing dumb mistakes more often than I did before.
Still doesn't stop me enjoying the videos.

>Almost finished ARP Kongo
>Still at 17/30 DDs for first stage Myoko
This is some painful shit. Managed to kill a DD last match though. Would have had another in the game before if a friend of mine wasn't a dick, calling me repeatedly on steam AND skype.
Finally finished all those missions.
I hope the next set of missions don't contain all sorts of bullshit killstealing tasks. I'm fine with "do X damage" or "set X fires", but the kill securing missions piss me off.
