Ahoy! WoWs with grant

29 Jan 2016

Posted by gpc_4 in World of Warships

After an excruciating long client update I was able to get WoWs going last night and I'm happy to report that it will run suitably on my PC (with incredibly low graphic settings, but whatever, it works). So far it is better then I expected. Obviously all very low tier stuff but it is fun, and the slower pace compared to WoT hasn't bothered me like I expected it would.


I reached level 6 and have purchased the tier II Japanese cruiser and destroyer. The Albany wasn't in port last night but it showed up this morning when I logged in to see if there were weekend specials, so I have one prem ship which I'm assuming is a good thing. I have also completed what I'm guessing are two of the WoWs noob rights of passage.....getting stuck on an island and torpedoing an ally :doh


So far I've found the destroyer and sneaking around with torpedoes to be the most enjoyable. It seems that destroyers are sort of like light tanks in WoT, which means that they are best used by experienced players that know what they are doing and have a strong grasp of gameplay mechanics, i.e. not me. However, I've had some success, including this 3 kill battle which I felt pretty good about. I'm not sure if that is a good score for a tier II destroyer but hitting with 7 torpedoes put a smile on my face.





So hit me up with all your best noob advice; what lines to advance, skills to use, how fast to move up the tiers, so on and so forth.

Tier VII Saipan... The ship that ruined CV's for me...

05 Jan 2017

Posted by DEWEY_96_ in World of Warships

So, I was hoping to get lucky and pick one of these Saipan's up from the Christmas boxes...




Because that would be about the only damn CV in the tier 6-7 range that I find worth playing anymore.  That ship, in my opinion, is so OP'd that it has eliminated Ranger and Jap CV drivers from that tier.  Even my tier 6 Jap carrier is getting molested by it as I seem to be getting 2 CV/side match-ups.  Yeah, my tier 6/7 planes love going up against tier 9 planes. And then if you add in that most Saipan drivers have the skill for the extra bird per squadron.... I have never had a successful engagement with a Saipan in my Ranger...  Fighter set up, bomber set up, doesn't matter.  My fighters get raped and can't catch their bombers, and my bombers are usually sitting ducks that get mopped up after my fighters are gone.  Only way to challenge it is to sit your planes over cruisers and hope that you can eliminate enough fighters to break through doing that... and then you get to listen to your team complain about the CV driver just sitting over his own ships.  Yeah, you can try to lure them to a side of the map while you take your other planes up the other side, but the tier 9 fighters move so quick that they usually can recover from getting drawn off like that.


I know a few of you have them... and I'm hoping their fun.  That'll probably be my next ship purchase... because until that time, I'm putting CV's away till I either free XP through them to tier 8's or 9's or I have my own Saipan.  I'm tired of the lack of fun those tiers have become.   


Maybe I'll buy back a tier 4 carrier and put my captains in them to build them up until I Free XP past the tier 7's.
