    Often the lower tiers can be overlooked and you can work your magic. I find the cruiser class is harder to abuse view range and often are the numbties torping their own team, Tenryu and Kuma class because they feel they have range.

    My response to a nub who torp dumps is usually a couple in reply with the chat request of "Do you like team torps?", sometimes they get it, sometimes they get hit. I'm usually well clear by then. :Pirate:

    Many don't get the herding and coralling of enemy with blind torps, they work well sometimes to deny an area or get free hits at chokes.

    No shit. A good destroyer spamming torps is a huge psychological factor, at least to people who aren't complete nubs.

    "I can't see it, but there's a fucken DD in there somewhere."

    Meanwhile you're 3 squares away, and the enemy is either too worried about where you MIGHT be to approach the area or they rush in to the wrong place looking for you, pulling the team out of position.

    I don't find it too hard playing the Japanese destroyers to avoid enemy fire by not shooting back and weaving about plus judicious smoke/speed boost use and avoiding open ocean if possible.

    I am a fan of the blind torp down chokes where you think people might be headed, I get a lot more torp hits from this than from long range torps launched using the torp indicator. It's also great to force people to turn and focus on not getting torped rather than shooting at you.

    haha yeah i've seen a few people use it, just peppering shots the WHOLE MATCH, in the many hundreds of hits.

    I use HE 90% of the time, long range especially

    AP if they're facing me nose on or tail on, absolutely wrecks.

    It's pretty shit. Range of 6km on the guns.


    Might be worth it for the port slot though :lol:

    So let me get this straight.. I've been playing it for the last week and have been enjoying it.. but I researched the first tier 3 battleship last night and went to buy it and it said that I need 300 doubloons..?

    I really like the game but the whole grind fest to unlock ships .. I'd happily pay to buy the game as an outright price, but the whole continual in-app purchase thing..

    You've probably run out of empty slots in your port. You might need to sell an older ship. Or use the above bonus code, and sell the ship. Which will give you two free slots.

    the albany is a premium so you can use your other us commanders on it at 100% without retraining. but yeah, that range is annoying.

    no point in using it as you need to spend real world money on it to get it's XP on other ships right ?

    yeah, but the commander still gets xp and you still get credits. you'd play it for fun but using a skilled commander makes it better and maximises what you get from playing it.

    Finally got my Cleveland last night

    Big ol' fuck you to any carrier wanting to drop bombs or launch a torpedo or two at me.


    They usually end up missing with only a plane or two returning.

    Yeah both the tier 3 battleships are a pain to grind out. :(
    Both have 9km range only and with the slow reload and manoeuvre means every other ship apart from another T3 BB is going to own you.
    Going to be throwing all free xp at them to speed it up.
