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.

Welcome to the forums ToerryFutty :)

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

Anyone else have some feedback from the new German cruisers?

 

Overall I'm generally impressed with them. I'm up to the Nurnberg (Tier6) and I love it. Almost twice the rate of fire of the Cleveland (5 second reload compared to 9 from the Cleve). If you do the math; Nurn shoots 99 shells a minute (9 150mm guns, each 11 shots/min), Cleve fires 72 per minute (12 152mm guns, 6 shots/min). The Nurnberg has basically the same caliber guns as the Cleveland, but slings 25% more lead per minute. The IJN Tier6 Aoba isn't even a threat to you. With the rate of fire, shooting AP, I killed a full health Aoba at 6k range in about 20-30 seconds. This ship will get nerfed...

 

If you like the firepower of the Cleveland......you will LOVE Nurnberg. Bad-@ss ship.

I am really struggling with the Tier IV Karlsux. REALLY struggling.  I have most of the trees up to tier 4 now and this is by FAR the worst ship for its tier I have driven yet.  But it is only tier 4 and the Konis awaits and that seems like a nice one.

Was away from ships for a while, currently at the tier 3 cruiser. Hopefully the tier 4 is better, I just do not like the 105mm guns on the tier 2 and 3. My style is preferentially AP and citadels, and either my aim is off or the 105s do not have the pen....

The lower tier (1-4) are lackluster.  They seem to pickup at tier 5 though, so grind through (or free XP up!) and it will get better.  The German cruisers are treated best as long range snipers (once they get the range to do so).  Their armor (the lack thereof) makes them vulnerable to engine and rudder incapacitations on a level I don't experience on US or Japanese cruisers.

I agree with thedakar, specifically the Konigsberg, is very squishy. I have seen an Omaha take a full help Konigsberg to dead in one barrage. That being said, oh it's guns are nice and they just keep getting nicer. You will always have the longest shooting range per tier and possible one tier up when using the German cruisers from tier 5 and up.

I am up to the Yorck (tier7). Thing is a monster. 210mm guns (I think the biggest on any CA) and not a bad reload at all. Taking 4-6k off of a North Carolina with one volley of HE is so very satisfying...only problem is you are kind of squishy. Armor's not bad, but definitely not good either. After a BB realized you just blew off half of his AA guns with one volley, you suddenly become his ONLY target.

 

If you compare the top tier cruisers. The German tier 10 actually looks to be best in the trio. More HP (over 50k. I think over 3k more that the others), better AA than the Zao (but not quite as much as the DM), same guns as the Zao (4x3 203mm) but the longest range out of the tier 10 cruisers (almost 18km)
