That moment when your Type 93 miss their intended target and 30 seconds later kill another unspotted enemy as they motor along on their merry 20km way.


Long Lance you so funny.

Re: World of Warships - Closed Beta
I can't hit absolutely nothing with my Fuso... even at 16miles or so I'm missing and when closing to 10miles or so I'm getting murdered...

Re: World of Warships - Closed Beta
They're the same guns as the Kongo, could you hit anything with that?

So, next patch is soonish. They've not said when, yet, sadly. USN BBs and IJN CVs. Also A-140, the Tier 9 Japanese BB. Think of it as Evil Japanese Nelson Clone if it helps, Warspite, and maybe Bismarck. Also, and this is the important part, they're going to start phasing shallows back in; soon StarSlayer and I will be lurking where none can follow and chucking torps at passing hostiles. It's only visual, but the patch notes explicitly state that's a first step.

Re: World of Warships - Closed Beta
The Fuso has some nasty problems over the Kongo, namely its cannons turn and reload for crap and all the extra armor just slows it down and does nothing else due to the lack of proper immunity zones.

[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Can't wait for the patch..and the Iowa.
That should have been Tier X, since it was the Yamatos counterpart during the war, but whatever. Wargaming always did put experimental/only in blueprints stuff.
But it better be the best Tier IX ship.

Re: World of Warships - Closed Beta
It was Tier 10 at one point (it was going to lead the fast battleship line), but the problem was most players couldn't handle it well enough to go 1v1 with Yamato without ridiculously ahistorical buffs. Now, the ranges even shorter, there's no way it can take a top slot.

Re: World of Warships - Closed Beta
Hmmm... Iowas advantages over Yamato are speed, mobility, torpedo and AA protection and fire control (best fire control).
When it comes to range and penetration power, the US used better shells so the difference was not that big, despite Yamatos larger caliber.
But Yamato did have thicker armor and more mass - hence simply more things that one needs to blow up.

Closing in for a slug fest against Yamato is not how one should play with an Iowa. Keeping it at max range and using your speed and accuracy to dish out more than you get is the way.

Re: World of Warships - Closed Beta
So an Omaha and my Farragut chased a Kongo on the west side of North map all the way from our base back to his.  I pelted him with 200+ 5" inch shells, near the end he insinuated I was cheating because hitting a BB at 7km is hard :P  Course the after action report pops up and I only had 19 pens that round so all those hits counted for jack squat in XP, next time I'm going to fling HE.

Yeah, I need several salvos for finding the range, but I won't use this aiming mod, that's a given...

Until you consistently connect or straddle on the first shots I would not recommend using salvos to zone in.  Cruisers have the RoF to waste full savlos but BBs are all big alpha slow reload.  You only get so many chances a match to unload and wasting an entire broadside hurts.  Fire the turrets in sequence to firm up the range and lead, then switch to salvo fire.

Re: World of Warships - Closed Beta
US DDs are hilarious

If IJN DDs are Kyudo specialists, USN DDs are Eskirma champs pummeling enemies with kali sticks.

So many hits so little damage



Hopefully the changes coming in 3.1 will up the effectiveness, while non penning AP will be losing damage HE is getting a buff, or so the story goes.  Until then I'll entertain myself by being the biggest pain in the ass on high seas.

Mogami.

Or Tatsuta (Tenryu but you try getting Wargaming to listen), at earlier tiers.

Re: World of Warships - Closed Beta
LOOK AT THIS INCOMPETENCE!

I captured one point alone (while fighting and killing 2 enemy warships), then proceed to hunt down the enemy carrier, killing 2 more on the way. When I finally cornered the carrier I got swarmed the the entire enemy team (what was left of it) while my allies where busy sitting pretty and doing nothing.



Look at this score!
We still lost.....

This game looks so fun! Any idea if they're going to open the beta up again to applications?

Buy a premium ship, you get beta access, port dock, 3000 gold.
That's the cheapest package.

Re: World of Warships - Closed Beta
Wow, I'm not sure why Pepsicola gets a bad rap.   Perhaps its because I have been running IJN cruisers that the jump from the Cleveland hasn't been so jarring, this thing flings 203mm lazer beams.
