    @Chia On Oct 12, had this high tier match flooded with BBs:


    One of my Div Mates had MM Monitor. Said the enemy CV had roughly 60% WR and ours was at an amazing 32%. Except for a few, a great chunk of our BBs sailed together and the enemy Hakuryu couldn't attack them without high losses. For as shitty AA that GK and Yamato have, keep them together enough and that mutual AA is murder on planes. With only 1 DD per team, there was no multiple source to torpedo a cluster of BBs like that. With the presence of planes and Radar Cruisers, that becomes harder for the DD but our Shimakaze IMO is still better at that than Grozovoi.

    Funny thing, my Div Mate in his DM has given up completely on AA Builds, even dropping DF in favor of Hydro+Radar combo. But on a few occasions, the enemy CV pulled his planes back from a bombing run when his DM was spotted in the area. The AA Reputation of DM saves them for the match! LOL!

    Me? I have AAGM2, AFT+BFT but no Defensive Fire because I went with a hybrid build. Decent AA still but I have Hydro+Radar capability.

    We both have the Radar Upgrade.

    Anyways, as I said earlier, most of our BBs clustered together with little fear of torp walls breaking the formation up. There was a GK of our team that was running south from Cap C. I saw he was isolated when our team finished taking Cap A, so I sailed east than northeast to escort the GK and protect him. It was a good move as our combined AA made it a problem for Hakuryu. That GK would also be the one to go into Cap B to lead the push, and start wrecking face. He ended up getting high score and a Kraken. Felt great to be able to contribute to that.

    Edit: Side comment, that enemy DM that died early in Cap B? I understood what he was trying to do. Rush in early match with the DD into Cap B, hug the island. Your AA would protect your team's only DD from air attack. Your Radar can detect enemy DDs in the cap and let the team and the Grozovoi rip it apart.

    I've done that a few times, but it is a very risky, high reward maneuver for a Cruiser. You get detected in that northwest area of Cap B and are suddenly under gunfire from every ship in the south. Very dangerous. This is even worse in a CV match as CVs ALWAYS send some aircraft to check Cap B. You'll be detected even sooner. Again, I understood what their DM tried but it's ultra risky.

    I just had a match where 2 of our team were sunk by an AFK New Mexico.

    My ship and a NY had just helped a NM in taking down a Bayern. Our NM was down to 1.2k HP. He then goes after the AFK enemy NM sitting out in the southeast. I noticed on the Minimap that he was closing into knife fighting range with such low HP. Here I am warning about secondaries and you can see him getting into short range.


    Here's a snapshot of the enemy NM, indeed just sitting there doing nothing. You now see our NM down to 600 HP.


    We still win despite this magnificent display of ineptness.


    And proof that the AFK NM sank 2 of our inept members.

    @Lord Harrab Seems fires from the secondaries did them in. You can see in the team scores page the AFK NM got no CQE badges. It didn't take much to do them in, esp. the NM with 1.2k HP starting that fight and was stupid enough to get into secondaries. The match was a win but again, it was close. Had their Gaede done a bit better it would have gotten very uncomfortable for me.

    Been coming across A LOT of Battleships using HE on my Cruisers and I love it! 2 examples:

    A Queen Elizabeth has the chance to put me down. He fires a salvo of HE. I can understand that, it's probably when he already had loaded. But he fired 2 more salvos at me with HE at that range, doing next to nothing to my Atlanta while I just kept on firing, and firing, and firing, and firing.


    Because he didn't put me down then and there with AP, I'd go on to finish with 112k of damage instead of 70k, at the cost of his teammates.


    Today, I had a Colorado shooting HE at my New Mexico! He should have been crucifying me with 406mm AP, but hey, I cannot complain as it let me draw the fight out more for the rest of the team to do their thing to win the match.


    Also today was this. Another BB shooting HE, this time at another Cruiser, my Cleveland. What makes this funny? My Cleveland is using AP to rip apart the BB while the BB is using HE against me.

    When your team denies your Kraken not once, not twice, but potentially three different times.





    At the start of the game, I had a Konigsburg on fire with no repair, and it would have burned out for my kill easily. Someone shot her.

    At the end of the game, I had whittled down an Iron Duke down to 1.2k HP. She wasn't burning yet, but a full salvo from me was capable of over 2k damage on the superstructure. What's more, she was busy reloading so I was safe to blast all guns. My shells are in the air and soon to hit her, when another BB AP's her in the side for a steal.

    Those two were steals for certain, and the potential third one was I had caught I think one of the Wyoming with two long range torpedoes. I was too busy shooting their carriers to see how much damage I did to the BB, but I caused flooding and was getting more DoT damage for it, so I probably should have had that kill as well since a flood is 60% of a ships HP if not repaired. Didn't get the kill and didn't see if the flood eventually repaired before it sank, so I dunno if this was actually a steal where I did majority damage or not.


    I always pull my weight. I just happen to be made of helium.

    I'm convinced that Gangut is a fireproof printer. Out of the 6 games I've played on her I've yet to use more than a few Damcon charges.

    @HydraGoliath Actually she is. Her armor scheme causes most caliber types of HE to 'shatter' which sharply reduces fire chance from the hit, unless you squarely hit her superstructure or some parts of the deck.


    Had a really good run with battleships lately. Honestly, I've been rather put off by some saying this class of ships requires no skill or that they're too simple. There's lots of things you can and should do to do well, its just most players don't do it.

    First and last run in Yamato for the day, I think someone was telling me she's "no good anymore"....?










    And a little sneak peak at a certain....Tier 8 ship. I've had to erase its identity in the screenshots for obvious reasons, but it's a battleship at least.

    All the following are consecutive matches, I didn't cherry pick. And yes....I lost the last one, but I think I did at least 100k damage in all the games, including that one.

    Wasted my weekend trying to get the 1 day premium. Finally gotten 5 stars after like 20ish 4 stars.

    Almost 200k in a BB that usually don't rake up damage, not to mention I took out 7 catapults so my damage may be well over 300k. Death description: Destroyed by ramming Rasputin



    1.2k base exp. So far I have no seen a higher base exp in all my games in this event.




    All the screenshot below taken from replay. Can't spare focus to find moments to screenshot during game play.

    Looks at my position. I was all the way in front with my DDs and taking secondaries from 4 Zikasas. Fireproof is so OP in this event.




    And here I was so far in front that the 2 ZIkasa that spawns Rasputin starts shooting their secondaries immediately when they spawn. I even have to take 2 or 3 Rasputin salvoes until the othes get into his range and took his priority targeting away from me.




    So with Rasputin's priority he ignores me. So I got a free citadel.

    So close to the circle. No you don't!
