Welcome to the forums sgt. flint :)

Hey All......anyone out there from 2 years ago remember me?

sgt. flint : (24 April 2017 - 11:39 PM)

just started playing WOT again and looking for a clan or group

bergsteiger : (25 April 2017 - 08:31 AM)

Crazy night. Got all my wins AFTER I quit tooning. Very unusual.

The_Dad : (25 April 2017 - 08:36 AM)

similar experience last night... all my wins were BEFORE I started platooning

NeoGP : (25 April 2017 - 10:25 AM)

Hey Flint!

xtc4 : (25 April 2017 - 11:28 AM)

With new mm, having good players at the top of the list seems to make a huge difference. And platooning seems to almost always put you at bottom of the list. So perhaps it makes sense that you good players are winning when playing solo.

Archaic : (25 April 2017 - 11:14 PM)

Yes, platoons seem to be pretty gimped with 3-5-7

sgt. flint : (26 April 2017 - 02:12 AM)

Hey Neo, yes i remember you. any others from the old crew still running?

NeoGP : (26 April 2017 - 10:17 AM)

not sure man..I haven't played wot in 2+ years, alot of changes throughout the 5 clans

SGrant7 : (26 April 2017 - 12:05 PM)

Haven't been on much in the last few days, but are 2 man platoons fairing much better?

bergsteiger : (26 April 2017 - 02:38 PM)

Platooning doesn't seem as big of an issue as Tier 8s. Don't think I've had a single game that I was top tier in an VIII

I've done two rooms in my home with bamboo and it worked great, Just remember to leave that space for swelling of flooring. Can't really add anything to what has already been said.

Old_Fart_63 : (28 April 2017 - 05:05 PM)

The new laminate flooring "No nails" is a big change in flooring and it looks beautiful

I've been having a blast with the Kuma and have finally elited it and unlocked the Furutaka (furry taco).

However I've heard bad things about the Furutaka and an reluctant to sell the Kuma.

 

Is the Furutaka as terrible as I've heard? Have they buffed it recently?Is there a trick to playing it?

Significant buff in 4.1; have not played it after the update however. 8 inch guns at tier 5 with better rotation speed should do well.

It's an ok ship.. just ok. I kept the Kuma because it's so much fun but sold the Furutaka as soon as I unlocked the Aoba. 

 

Considering buying it back post buff to see what they did to it.

I used to be the biggest advocate on how horrible the Furu was. I hated that thing with a passion....

 

It has always had excellent maneuverability and good firepower, but the traverse and reload is what made it such a POS. I have actually been playing mine a lot more after the buff. Guns turn faster, reload is shorter. I'm actually quite impressed with it now. The Omaha has a higher rate of fire, but the Furu hits like a freight train for its tier (US-152mm, IJN-203mm...US doesn't get 203mm until tier7). I honestly don't think I've lost 1-on-1 to an Omaha since the update. He'll hit you a lot more, but you can take half his health with one well aimed broadside from your larger gun (same guns as the tier 9 Ibuki...just half as many).

 

Side note: You can actually pen lower tier BBs (3-4) when they are broadside and hit the cit's with your 203mm guns. I accidentally fired a broadside of AP at a Wyom yesterday (thought I had HE loaded). Got 2 cit's.... "WaDaFuk???"

biggest piece of advice I can give you for any cruiser....

If you are engaging another cruiser, fire HE if they are coming at you or if they are at a steep angled. If they go broadside or are at a wide angle, IMMEDIATELY switch to AP. A lot of players underestimate the AP performance in cruisers. Sure it's not a good idea to shoot AP at DDs (over-pen) or BBs (under-pen), but you can do significantly more damage to another cruiser shooting their sides with AP over HE. Aim just above the waterline and let fly.

This times a million. I recently started doing this and the number of cits per match has gone up a lot. 

 

Was in the Yubari last night and came up against a Kuma.. killed him in 3 salvos using AP. Those citadels  :bnb

Conclusion so far ... not that bad, not that bad at all.

I have played that ship pre and post buff. It has improved a lot since the buff. Big thing to remember you are a floating citadel. that being said the armor is decent if you can keep a good clean angle. It will bounce some shots just don't get over eager and turn broadside you will be penned. Also a bit of a note try and stay with the bbs . I know that is tough with this fast ship but that being said a focused Furutaka is dead. The torps are good for snap shooting and after the upgrade i think they go to 10 km . Remember you might not get all of your guns on the target but that is better than being one salvoedby a BB
