Dunno if I am a fan of this new patch, seems the mighty Bismark has had a ninja nerf.....or I am a fucking idiot who can't play

Just don't seem to hit as hard, and I flat out refuse to use HE in a BB

Playing the Kamikaze R for a couple of battles yesterday and it was funny how many are using RPF at tier V
They still get sunk, it's all about them having detection in addition to the wallhack...

Last battle today:

So how is everybody's ranked season going?

I'm up to rank 9. The CV players seem to have reduced a lot recently, destroyers and cruisers seem to be the popular thing. I have been playing mainly DD with an occasional Myoko (Haguro) run although according to the stats I ought to do it the other way around. I was going to re-skill my pub spec Shiratsuyu as I was quite the potato in it but I think I have become used to handling it and it performs respectably. I think I will leave it until 15 pts before reassigning now.

Bounced between 11 & 10 a few times, should start moving up again now.
Starting to think the Shira can struggle to turn a battle.

18 point Captain playing weekend on NA:
Started the team off with a good start then we dropped back because of impatience, ended up vs 2 x BBs and took one out ftw

I find the main issue to be the fact that it can't directly deal well with other DD's and its direct damage output is pretty lumpy - so the primary option you have to reliably turn battles is through consistent support and denial strategy.

My rand build at 12 points does away with CE and used the higher alpha longer cycle torps which turned out to be quite a hindrance. In rand the long cycle times didn't really matter (the faster arrival did) but in ranked its very disadvantageous not being able to lay that opening wave when you arrive for the opening skirmish and the subsequent wait for the follow up.

The Akatsuki is a bit more rounded package, but at the moment I'm pulling relatively similar WR with both ships.

First time playing ranked and have made it to rank 5, but can't get much further mainly due to low player numbers.. playing on the NA server during Australian evening hours weeknights means sometimes waiting 10+ mins for enough players for a match.

Enjoying the 7 vs 7 teams all at the same tier though

I reached 6 a couple of weeks ago but stopped playing. Played three games this weekend though and good god the player base has gone way toxic .

All the Belfast and Atlanta players must have ranked up as there mainly seems to be Fiji and Myoko CA players in the queue now

There is so much bad play though too and yet again another 1042 battle to rank 1 NA player...

Had a few games yesterday and today (first go in 6 months).
Only saw 1 CV in 10 games (yay), accidentally torpedoed a friendly BB with my DD, he just wandered over during g a fight, warned him about the stray torp but he took no action and just sailed onto it, caused flooding and 30 secs later the moron sank, I'm now pink lol.
Didn't realise the captain points he been reset. Wondered why I was getting no warning about in incoming torps or shells.

Bisko carries again after much of the team on one flank evaporated we barely won on points (we almost ran out of ships)
