I cannot believe they’re leaving the penetration the way it is
Yupp, it's pure cancer, but don't worry, since the handling is shit the average will still be within what is acceptable cause bad players will die even quicker, facing a good one tough and it will be like a Worcester that has smoke and torps. I'm not looking forward to it.
That’s another point; why the fuck do game companies balance games around the casual or bad-ish players? It’s a quick way to trash the intended design, which for this game is a rock-paper-scissors.

If that isn’t your desktop screensaver, then shame on you!! Very good view :)
Full secondary build and rush caps. Only way to play German bb’s.
Well in today’s meta with so much more HE spam (specifically British BB’s and American CL’s) I’d suggest a tanky/stealth build (Superintendent and Basics of Survivability along with everything concealment related) and work at mid range. Going full secondary spec generally means you forgo concealment and it’s just so much harder these days. I have the above build on my GK and try to stick to 11-15km as the sweet spot and it works well. Bismarck has definitely been powercreeped.
Excellent meme, even if it is true
I’m fairly certain that making recruiting posts on Reddit is not necessarily in good taste. Save it for the forums section or the WoWS Clan Embassy on Discord.
A lot of good comments above. You can never go wrong with the 4x3 build of TAE, BFT, Superintendent and Survivability Expert.
“Hey Kutuzov, are you Radar or smoke?”
“I am smoke Kutu”
I got reported in ranked season for not using my Kutu radar.
WHY DIDNT YOU
Reality is never a factor for balancing. That's alright. But for general flair or gimmicks, it should at least give general direction. And in that regard, it is just stupid how of all Navies, the IJN torps had to get nerfed into oblivion.
Exactly their torpedoes' supposed prime domains, Range and Concealment is where they are simply worse than their peers. (20km torps don't exist in my world)
Not by design (because Shima was truly awesome. Too awesome, admittedly) But thru here many range-, reload-, detect-nerfs, she evolved into the gimped thing she is now.
Yet she got gun reload-, multiple turret rotation- and a smol concealment buff! Super!
You said it:
I just don't get the logic
I just don't get the logic
I agree. Don't even get the concept WG envisioned for the current Shima. Chances are, there is none.
Well to be fair, I was a WoT player for a long while and it always seems to be the case with WG that when something is overpowered they realllllly swing the nerf bat and conversely when something is playing bad they try and go for the home run with buffs (think of the German CL/CA 1/4 pen rule; turned a Hindenburg from a steady performer into a terrifying HE spammer which wasn’t even the intended design when it first came out). I know you know this but that’s one the easily sticks out in my mind.
I'm all for incremental balancing... But saying "Don't worry, Shima will be buffed" and then releasing 4 patches of turret rotation buff and gun reload buffs just felt like they were trolling.
But tbh the reason, why Shima won't get anything substantial: She's just way too popular with the casuals (despite being so unpopular with the core folks). Any increase in torp power would just increase her popularity even more. And if "the idiots love it" despite largely underperforming in her, that's probably just fine for WG.
And tbh, instead of WG being WG, re-balance Shima with a hammer, I'd probably prefer her in her current state. And largely ignore here. Better unappealing than OP. :-/
So it would seem :(
Potato farming nothing special
And how good are you?
What is the relevance of this question to my statement?
You’re making it seem like this result is easy to get. Absolutely not
I was close to #1 shark yesterday :D then I decided to sleep lol woke up 3rd.
why is anyone voting this down?
I’ve really enjoyed spending my coal on detonation flags; this was a perfectly timed idea to implement since I almost ran out :D
Plus who the f**k thinks putting a T9 BB hp on a T10 cruiser is a good idea in the first place. That stats alone is brokenly unbalance.
Same with Kronstadt; I still think it has too much HP.
A reasonable and efficient solution. Have an up-boat
I have to agree, however why not just make a battlecruiser class? I understand that a bit of ship moving and line tweaking would need to happen but better sooner than later. Great write up
I’ll be honest, I hate that you can zero teams out. I really don’t think that it would make games more sufferable if that was the case.
Interesting that they’re nerfing the reloads on the T8-9, since most players (including myself) were very happy with the reload buff to the Hipper.
Wow, that’s frustrating to say the least :(
Is Kutuzov still playable in recent meta?
Of course! It’s smoke firing detection is only 7.5ish kilometers so you can happily stay at medium-long range and fire away.
Wow. You’ll love the Kutuzov, it’s a great ship. Wish I had that luck!
Git gud haha I liked that one
Can we get a link to the Twitch channel it will be on?

Very well done
Yeah, I switched out my secondary GK build to survive the HE cancer DPM the main guns build. It's just pretty rare that I would get the most out of a secondary build at Tier10 these days.
Exactly. When British BB’s came into the game I figured the days of secondary specc’d BB’s were numbered.
DUUDE nice game!!!! I was hoping you would post this :D
Thanks Potato :)
Nice, I managed 209k with the Arizona yesterday. It was a very tense battle all the way through.
That’s a lotta damage
I don't suppose we can make KotS an In-Game event? It feels like this thing that gets organized outside the game.
That’s the point; player run tournament that’s actual competitive. As much as people claim CB is comp, it’s not.
Honest question: Why would I want to watch this?
NA top level comp is already pretty skill-deficient, so why would I want to watch the guys who do not even reach that level?
Skill deficient? Haha ok maybe comparatively speaking to other EU/RU teams. You’re missing the point of this; it’s marketed to newer teams or inexperienced players. We’re doing our best to grow the comp scene. If you don’t want to watch fine, but at least people will be putting their hat in the ring and trying. No need for this.
p.s.- what “skill overloaded” team do you play for?
