What's stog? It's hard to compare this to a MMORPG too, in every sense.

There's no "endgame", you can play a T10 match and then play a T1 game if you want.

Also, forma fleet battles you need a T4 ship, that can be obtained after a couple of hours.

Senpai we take all our brother memers and put enough faith in them that we bring people with less than 50 matches played to fleet battles, the place where every fleet brings their tryhardest cunts. And the bastards that joined us hours ago still do their absolute best and and put a big fat dent on them. Even when outnumbered and against a top 5 fleet we still make them work if they want to win. Just ask in the fleet chat for groups or tips and you'll get some help.

Just started today, but I'm looking at going subs. Picked up some basic ships so I can get the captains to help me go fast. At low level pugging, it's an exercise in frustration. Less guns, less torpedoes, and not really useful in the small maps. Hopefully it gets better later on. Using the Type O currently, and I'm close to getting the Type S.

There's 2 ways of playing them. You can play spotter or you can torp the shit out of them. Torping takes practice and some suffering but it can make you carry pub games.
Use 1 spotter or 2, never a full squadron to lead your TBs towards the enemy. TBs need 1.5s to dive before they can drop the torps, so keep that in mind when you aim or they'll do infinite turns.

>>
>>128522263
Oh, I thought you meant one of the guys that gives 10% reload for 45 seconds when an enemy is spotted. The 355 active requires the captain slot doesn't it? I can't give up Not Char - his active and passive (which requires him in captain slot for whatever reason) are too good to pass up. Warning me when I'm spotted is great for DDs and CLs

Different anon here
I gave up on that being spotted indication skill because there are many better options for the captain skill. You'll learn when you're spotted just by judging the distance between you and X type of the bote. Next step from that is you playing the cards to decide when you'll want to be spotted and dictating how the game will go.

Otto gives a -45 percent reduction btw. This with the reload equipment brings it down to -55 percent when active. Also the passive abilities of your captain in the gunner slot decreases this even more.
When you reach a t5 BB you get Alan Macklemore with his newest album on heavy bomb drops.
Really, the British dude is great at 4 stars as he gives nice passives but, his largest buff is 10 percent more main cannon damage when in your gunner slot at 4 stars.
>>
>>128523817
Still, the speed and bonuses to steering and acceleration are great. Plus that ability is much more handy in higher tier matches where you may be the only DD spotting for your team in a 5v5.

>>128524190
>implying I see them before they see and start tracking me

Again, I've been alerted to DDs (especially DJfags) who see me way before I noticed them - even while I'm rocking spotting equipment and a spotting crewmember

>>128523985
TVI is where a lot of previously "OK" tactics go out the window. Normally in the lower tiers there are enough DDs where having one or two going full force into the enemy is fine. They spot them for you, and possibly take out a BB before they are ripped apart. In the higher tiers there are normally just 1 DD on each team, or 2 if you are very lucky.

Basically the way it's been playing out with the groups im in - the game is determined by who dunks the other teams DD first. Here, A good DD player is defined less by their ability to torp a BB or two after being spotted, and more by avoiding that spot - and being evasive while still maintaining visual on the enemy.

Again this is why I think Kaspar Mass is super valuable - there are some DDs that WILL outspot you, and giving a notice on when you are spotted in these higher tiers is a life saver.
>>
>>128524787
Do we know if multiple bonuses from the same effect stack? Meaning if I have State of War (+10% reload on enemy spot) on three guys, does it give +30%, or only the +10% for that particular ability?

Every, EVERY, DD I've had this night has gone kamikaze dying in less than a minute leaving us 2 BBs vs 1DD 2BBs or some shit like that. How come after so MANY hours of playing, still can't think shit so easy to understand like "hey, if I die my team will surelly lose so I'll try my best to not die while doing my job."

I've actually platooned with a DJ fag before. The guy had a 60ish winrate. He was in his t5 DD and spotted a BB from halfway across the map. Considering the BB was firing and actively moving this would make sense. Some quick napkin guesstimating I would say that these DJ guys are running MAXIMUM SPOT and this was also a small map. As in, every single captain is dedicated to spotting, they have every scouting upgrade captain at 4-5 stars.

These guys are serious and have spent hundreds if not thousands of dollars into the captain gacha system to get what they need.

>>128525151
They are additive afaik and stack. Every other skill in game stacks, why wouldn't this one?

>>128525162
If you want to win, you need good CVs and good DDs in tiers 5+. They are the game changers. CA/CL/SS/BB are just filler and DPS support.

Then we are of two different mentalities. I have a staunch hatred of losing. Even more so when the incompetence of my team hinders my chances. I play to win and grind the enemy down the down, one or another.

I refuse to accept that I lose because of MM. If I lose, its because I messed up somewhere. There are times where I do everything I can but my team just loves to throw themselves against the enemy and die, leaving me alone to die against a horde of enemy ships.

I would recommend trying each nations T3 sub before settling in 'for the long haul' as each offers a different feature (German for tiny with decent torps, U.S. for tiny, with the most rear torps. Japan for WELL FED SUBMARINES that can ram tiny Ger/Us subs and laugh, shrugging them off as they sink to the bottom. They can also ram DD's, and I have lifted one out of the water once.)

I say T3 as that is the sub tier allowed into FB's (2-3)

Good job capping against Dark Judge though, shit was hilarious as they changed their comp to counter you just rushing. We just used a sub to kill their point defense Atlanta while we slaughtered the rest of them. You guys get your asses handed to us in FBs.

Vets go to high tiers and got tired of playing against Dark Judge I'm guessing. I'm not even with NBA, I just peruse this general and dispense advice.
I play now to just farm salt and wins to sustain my will to play.

>>128527705
The Laforey is overpowered as shit. Its an M-class DD with tier 7+ firepower. The base hull is already strong, but the premium upgrade just makes it too strong.

They shekeled everything they could when NA server launched to think they can club.
All of them are using gold shells, camo jewed their way to get maximum spotting and still in 1v1 situation they play like total shit. I mean how the fuck you loose to a 2v1 knifefight with me still not running paint and flags holy shit

I guess everyone made fun of them at china server so they decided to "be" bullies here
>>
>>128538843

Well yeah, this also shows in fleet battles. They have superior organization and ranks. But in actual battle once the variables change, they can't adapt and they get smashed. They are good at copying and abusing the system, but against actual innovation and skill they fall on their face.

This is really noticeable in KTKM mode, every single time I see a DJ KTKM, I'm a guaranteed ez win. They won't even fan torps and force boats to dodge, they'll just sail and try to point blank torp and they also get kited around REALLY easily.

Goes for Chinese players in just about any game. Their competence is a myth, they are just very good at naturally organizing themselves, which is enough for pub stomping. I've taken judges mano-a-mano and won almost every time. They have no tactical flexibility and the average judge isn't that much more skilled than your typical pubbie.
>>
>>128542596
Thats kinda why you don't have to be afraid of the lone judge, only the stacks are dangerous.
>>
>>128540769
literally their only tactic is have one/two DDs that do nothing but spam gold smoke, one BB and two/three CA with firehose skill.
They spot one poor sod and start shooting him at once if he fights back/ tries to get their spotter through a cloud of semen. they just swarm him with scout planes. Rinse and repeat.

No wonder they stick to tier 6 only.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class CVck Academy, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on BAD Lobsters, and I have over 300 confirmed Dark Judge kills. I am trained in navel warfare and I'm the top CVck in the entire game. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of DDs across the oceans and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with dive bombers. Not only am I extensively trained in navel combat, but I have access to the entire tech tree of the United States Navy and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

Just as a warning, if you've played World of Warships, this game will throw you off. The graphics aren't the best, but it is a much more skill based game in comparison.

You need to apply to No Botes Allowed in game with a minimum tier 2 ship if I remember correctly. Then once you do that, post your IGN here so we can separate you from the chaff. NBA still gets applications from randoms.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post here or ask in the fleet. We have members active of any timezone, but sometimes we simply don't have people.
You can consider /sog/ a second home. Its our comfy general in which we've built up.

Submarines are in fact in game! They are in fact viable! But they require loads of patience and a shit ton of planning and forethought.

Between nations
IJN-> Largest Subs, due to how ramming mechanics work, can often surface and ram enemy DDs to kill them. All IJN subs at a certain point are CVs.

American subs - Much smaller with rear torpedo tubes, middle of the road afaik.

German subs - Even smaller and slower, but much more agile. maneuverability is king when you are dodging TBs and torpedos by a hair's breadth.


Cruisers -

IJN - Middle of the road, torpedos and decent guns, not so much good armor.

US - Amazing guns and amazing AA, no torpedos though. They can brawl with other cruisers, but don't expect them to last in a fight against BBs except when plinking them to death.

Germans- Meh cruiser line, the Konigsberg t5 is decent. The tier 10 German CA is probably the best tier 10 CA in game stats wise.

>>128586079

Apparently you can still get the T5 Battleship Repulse via the above link.

Pretty great Battleship for Overlord matches, prints credits wonderfully. (Also starts with quick training for 120% commander gains, IN ADDITION to the normal xp/credit boost from being a premium ship.) Also rewards Otto van Autoloader the Commander normally awarded once you reach T5 (One of the best for gun based ships.)

launch the game via ^ link, gift box bottom right 'claim' and then storage, non battle items, click and 'use' to apply it. (if sold in storage rewards 1 silver.)

>>128629854
They are a straight upgrade over the tier VI it's based on - instead of a sidegrade. This isn't helped by it being a cash ship and people are salty because they missed the recent sale on it

Mechanically it has as tier VIII guns (200+ damage x 2x3) very nice turret placement and two centered racks of torpedoes. It's pretty much everything you could ask for in a DD.

All this on a tier VI ship
>>
>>128632659
Also goes about 36 knots, moderate resiliance (compared to low-res jap DDs) and four DCs - two of which launch from the sides of the ship and often can catch subs by surprise who aren't used to it. The durability is pretty normal but I've survived some dumb shit in mine and still came through so I dunno about that.

Only real weakness is it's one AA turret, and good luck shooting down much with that thing.

They're better, but not by enough that good play won't beat them. If a player is really good, then they can dunk you in an Asashio/M-Class as well as they can in a Laforey.

I think it's pretty funny that there are also prem ships that are completely pointless like the Yugumo or Tirpitz
>>
>>128634106
I worry about it too, but there's still hope.

The problem with these guys is we don't know what their business model is, WG are a known quality and we know they'll sometimes cross the line but never dance over it too hard. With the chinese, they may pull back the OP premiums, they may keep releasing them. Hopefully they listen to feedback but yeah..

If a player is really good they can dunk you with mutsuki, doesn't mean that mutsuki isn't a tier 2 ship. That's a pointless argument..

As someone who actually plays high tiers, I highly suggest you invest your gold in port slots or lower tier premiums. High tiers are brutal on newbies and will drive them away.

Get something like the Ise BBV or Oyodo, or Brooklyn. Or the t7 Chinese DD if you must get a premium. Otherwise, get port slots and just do the slow grind to the top.

Or, if you have enough port slots and don't want to buy a premium, use your gold to buy commanders. It can give you a minor headstart but will require a large amount of gold if you want to get the best.

The thing is, meta wise its also more powerful.
Since the flight deck capacity of Indy is 6 plens. This means you can get 2 full TB squadrons and get a scout/fighter much easier right after. In the time it would take you to launch 2 full TB 4 man squadrons and a 2 man scout, I would already have a fully airwing in the air and on the way. It shaves easily 10+ seconds or more.

I have no idea what you're talking about with the Mutsuki.

Laforey is better than the M-class in most ways, but not markedly better. Its tier 8 guns only do 7 more damage than the tier 8 guns available on the M-class just for example.

The biggest difference setting different tier destroyers apart is hp and guns imo. Starting at tier 5, every tier step starts giving 1000+ more durability and ~100 more gun damage. You have to outplay a high tier destroyer for a longer time, and you can make less mistakes.

Fighting a Laforey though, is roughly the same as fighting an M-class. Because there is no such thing as "perfect play" itg you can beat any other equivalent ship in a regular match. so long as the matchup is truly lopsided (ie Mahan vs Fubuki)

Basically, I'm saying that I can beat any random shitter that tries to wallet warrior in a Laforey, but redbear can kick my ass in a reggo M-class.

Just to add in another opinion.

I agree with not buying a high tier premium just yet. The playerbase has not yet caught up sufficiently to make it worth it in my opinion.

And that is also part of the reason for so much Q_Q about the Laforey, and ISE BBV. A. they were 'the new thing' and on sale.
B. the playerbase has finally caught up to that tier range of ships, so that (to them) is all they are seeing to judge premium ships off of. Well, also the Repulse but since everybody has one it is judged differently. Also a very fun glass cannon that most people cannot use properly. (or even apply to their own accounts properly, as shown via picture.)

But if you want, how different is the sonar mechanic from regular spotting/radar? besides the "pings" sent out after a set interval.
>>
>>128693803
I tested and found something quite disappointing the other day, sonar doesn't detect surface ships. So if your sub has more sonar range than radar, well, too bad..
>>
>>128693998
So the sonar is useless for everything but sub hunting?
>>
>>128694430
Doesnt it let you detect things under water and vice versa?
>>
>>128693803

Sonar works like radar. With DDs and CLs having the best sonar in game, period. Battleships and CVs won't even be able to detect slow moving or stationary subs when they are firing torpedos at sub 2km ranges.

Sonar works like radar in the fact that speed influences how you are detected, depth decreases your detection chances as well.
For example, right under the water while moving at 1/2 or 1/4 speed will have you being very sneaky that a DD that closes within 1.5km will be able to detect. If you are stopped, you are very hard to detect, but very vulnerable.

At deepest depths, you are nigh undetectable unless spotted before. If you stop moving, you are almost invisible unless DDs until about 1/10 of a kilometer. You can test this out in the training room.

This is why well played submarines are so dangerous, because they can get into position and literally disappear without a trace. Give them an oxygenator and they could probably stay down there for half the game.


Sub + teammates providing spottiing data so they know when to dive and disappear. = good

Sub + YOLOderp = bad
Most of the population falls into this category, being too impatient or just not good enough to use a submarine to its strengths.

Does that answer your question or clarify anything?

>>128694430
Pretty much. But considering how dangerous subs can be, its not wasted.
>>
>>128694641
I also want to add something as a BB player.

Deepest depths reduce radio range too. I've seen friendly subs dissapear and reappear in my map while in radio range and the only possible cause of that is deepest depths.
>>
>>128694641
Yeah that cleared a lot of things out

Questions for carriers in this game.

Do the aircraft get any better when it comes to survivability vs enemy AA?

The aircraft from my Argus just evaporate in mid-air anywhere within 2km range of anything and everytime I play against CVs on tiers III-IV I pretty much one shot their planes.

Is it worth grinding through this shit?
>>
>>128695654
it gets better, but enemy AA increases to match, so you only really notice it if you're overtiered

You're supposed to know what you want to strike and drop the torps as soon as they start firing, not loiter around.
>>
>>128695654
>>128696092

Also certain aircraft are more FED than others, that's why people use fighters to spot enemy botes instead of scouts.

>Do the aircraft get any better when it comes to survivability vs enemy AA?
Yes and no, you get more HP on your planes, but enemy AA scales as well.

>The aircraft from my Argus just evaporate in mid-air anywhere within 2km range of anything and everytime I play against CVs on tiers III-IV I pretty much one shot their planes.

This is going to happen at all tiers. Your single squadrons can and will evaporate against focused AA. This is why you send multiple squadrons at once.
This is balanced also for the fact that a single TB squadron can either 1 shot or cripple anything in game.
Also tier 3 planes are shit, it gets better at t4 and up.

>Is it worth grinding through this shit?
Well you picked the British line. In terms of power its.

TBs - IJN>RN>US
DBs- US>RN>IJN

US planes are the toughest and fastest in game. British planes are the middle of the road between the 3 nations. IJN CVs are the cheapest and have the worst planes, but highest damaging torpedos.
You get what you pay for essentially. All 3 lines have different exp and credit costs.
US>RN>IJN
If you want to play CVs seriously, I suggest swapping to US or staying RN.

>>128696092
Pretty much this. You cannot loiter planes around or expect them to survive. They are tiny and flimsy scraps of metal. Don't expect them to survive 76mm->100mm AA fire or bofors.

>>128696256
And subsequently get shot down.

On the topic of subs. Some of my best games in them were in matches where I Disconnected at the start and joined in 2-3 minutes later..

and thinking on it a bit more.. it was because by that point, odds are most of the front lines have been spotted and you have a general idea of where to move without YOLO!! or meeting the front lines head on like one does in the initial few minutes.

So as a sub with randoms, set a course and take it slow.. letting others enter the frenzy that occurs at the middle lines. Then slip through where an opening appears and enjoy!

>IJN are the cheapest and have the worst planes

eh.. They have the least amount of hitpoints, relying instead on passive mitigation (dodge) to survive barrages.
http://i.imgur.com/rs7eHQt.png
comparison of T3,5,10 planes.

At T10 IJN TB's have 22% dodge, Brits have 13% and US have 10%

Meanwhile IJN has 171 hp, Brits 192 and US 221.

With a commander with 147 BP(CP) in the gunner seat, you gain +58.79% dodge

22(dodge) + 12.93(58.79%) = 34.93% so 1 in 3 shots could miss.
OR if additive (like most skills are, I believe?)
22 + 58.79% = 80.79% 1 in 5 shots might hit.


and that's before any actual passives applied from commanders.

I want to reply to this correctly, but I'm currently in testing and theory craft. Things are not as they seem though with stats. I will just say that.
To be honest I'm not going to give out much more info at higher tiers as this info is a cooperative operation that I'm doing with several other high tier CV captains in DIIN.
I'm not willing to part with this game info because of the fact that its going to be used in our strategy in fleet battles.
>>
>>128699283
not able to get online right now to check precise numbers..

But the thing is.. against the Anshan which sticks in my mind, with AA relatively equivalent to T8-9ish

it has 4 AA spitting out 50-55 rounds a minute per gun.. each shell could deal as much as 174(or 147?) damage per shell.

Meaning if it IS 174, and connected for full damage, goodbye IJN plane. Where-as the american or british planes would need at least two full damage shells to wipeout.

And I have no real idea how AA damage works as far as 'full damage vs partial'
And I do not have a T8-10 CV for actual comparisons.. just pure theory crafting as if the numbers truly are as shown.


>>128700403
Totally understand that lol..

Numbers in this game are definitely 'interesting'.
>>
>>128696453
I wish they just made IJN cost more and the stats difference less pronounced.
It's one thing for each navy have a weakness and strength, but when you have 5 weaknesses for 1 strength, you basically made an entire series of ships nonviable on top of shitting on people who didn't spreadsheet from the start.

Disclaimer: I'd rather argue to make things better for the casuals since they keep games alive, instead of argue for tryhards. They'd be tryharding regardless of the conditions.
>>
>>128700403
Is this just related to dodge stats? The only reason I haven't made a 100% switch to USN is because I thought IJN might still be useful in specific multi-CV strats.
NBA can test independently but some tips would be appreciated.
>>
>>128702908
the argument "ijn costs less therefore its weaker" is silly; it implies anyone would ever choose to play a seriously gimped hightier ship just to skip 5% of the grind

Chinks hate japan/suck at balancing/we're not realizing something are all more plausible reasons than "but you see, you save 50k!"
>>
>>128704136

All IJN BB/CVs share the same theme. They pay for it in other areas where they lack.
>>
>>128704348
Ise has superior firepower at the cost of paper armor is a fine tradeoff. Hiryu is just a worse Wasp so it can cost 1/3 of the price is silly, this isn't starcraft where you can use the savings to send three hiryus against every wasp.

>>128704651

>>128704813
my point is that that being an actual rule is less plausible than plain "there's some aspect we're overlooking". If it is in fact the justification of the dev, that means they either suck at balancing or hate japan or both (same applies to british vs usn).
