Doganpc, Duca could be like an Italian Cleveland if the fire rate is good enough and does make sense at titler 6.

very nice. glad they finally are coming out with Italians. though I cant waif for my French! Doganpc nice game. glad to see people are able to get torp hits in the Koingsberg. How did you get the double strike? I always like to here how people get them.

My best double strike was a double double strike. I was playing the Benson and did a full salvo of torps into smoke and got 4 ships sunk. I didn't even know there was 4 ships in it when I did it.
That one was pretty weak, caught a carrier and lit it on fire (while its planes were out, bonus!) then an AFK destroyer lost concealment as I was closing in on the carrier.  After a moment of panic... I lined up the torps on the DD, in between salvos on the CV, and the two were destroyed at the same time.  The other torp hit (and kill) was a Kongo that was charging hard around an island to get behind me as I was burning up a Bayern, it never had a chance Twisted Evil  My best double kill was during one of my many trips through the middle that everyone says you don't do. 5 minutes of chaos, 3 kills before I finally fell and then all my team's DD's came through after me to lay waste to the enemy team from behind. Cool

I'm a little concerned with the French Cruisers, they look like WW2 ships at Tier 3 right now.  It also doesn't help that my googling turned up minimal information about that mythical T3 cruiser (the class exists as a 1890 design, nothing like the pictures).  Combined with the limited observable combat reports, heck IIRC a lot of the WW2 fleet was sunk in port or kept out of action, and I'm a little concerned this might be an entirely fantasy ship line filling a niche.

Italian Cruiser are going to be interesting though, my favorites from AAMWAS were the Trento, Bolzano, Zara group... 150mm belts on those Zara's, they were the heaviest armored cruisers during the washington treaty era and they still did 36knots  Shocked.  I'm afraid at what they'll do to balance them out, no AA, slowest ROF, no concealment, horrible accuracy (which there is historical precedent for due to inconsistent powder supply).  They should be fun, but games like this are really good at taking fun out of things.

Took advantage of the 35 free xp for 1 gold exchange and I'm now up to 119,000 free xp.

I got 1000 gold from a super container a few days ago.

I haven't bought doubloons in a while but was happy to win some.

I had lots of free xp (about 80K) sitting in the bank.

I've considered converting some excess xp I have laying around, would be nice to buy out of Nurnberg as it looks like a tier 6 Konigsberg and the Yorck that comes after it is a different playstyle.  Also, my Konigsberg is nasty.  It was a fun play in AAMWAS (as Koln, which is how I play mine) too.

Indeed, I'm currently at a sweet spot in the game with a Konigsberg, Konig, & Leander rotation.  Often I drive them through the middle, if the map has one, or just hunt DD's and adjust to what I actually find.  Really, the point I started having fun with them was when I stopped trying to play them and just blow stuff up.  I get the same 25k-50k damage in 5-10 action packed minutes as I do with 20 minutes of careful planning and strategising.

Edit: Nurnsberg is exactly what I feared, an uptiered konigsberg with marginal increases offset by the bigger ships you're facing.

Sometimes it works out all too well.

Bismarck is fun but I've not enthusiasm for gettting to T9 and T10.

Really enjoying the Budyonny and the Admiral Graf Spee. Smile

Hmm maybe this will get my brother to play Japan now.

Did any of you notice the change in cv play in 6.3? Now I can't seal club in my Langley.

When will that darn Alabama come out... I'm running out of time. My hope is it becomes a premium shop ship so I can get it when I get back.

I'm downloading the Play Test Server right now.  I like how you get main server rewards for your XP on the PTS.  Also, I want to try out Saipan and Warspite while being shelled by Duca's.  Also, also, it would confirm some things about the Italian light cruisers.

My current speculation is that their shot dispersion is going to be horrible to compensate for their brawling capability.  I imagine they'll be very similar to British light cruisers in speed, manueverability and torp ranges; changes to normal ammo types and more armor.  In other words, not enough armor to matter because of the games tier system and compressed ranges, but situation superior.

PS: Stealth firing is going away in 6.3, every ship's detection range while firing will increase to it's firing range.  From the sound of it, no more destroyer/cruiser firing from smoke.  Will have to adjust to firing from behind it instead.

Candystripe confirmed though.

Hmm, looking at a few Youtubers, the D'Aosta has average concealment, poor range, equal fastest AP shell, poor rudder shift/radius, fastest speed, very light armour, slightly faster ROF, scout plane, defensive AA or Hydro.
I haven't seen any data around shell dispersion nor turret turning speed. I've heard rumours about some scout plane bonus but nothing firm.

I just got my Yamato! Took me since December of last year. I now have completed the holy trinity for battleships! Next up the Russian battle cruiser "Moskva". I think I'll get that around September-October timeframe.

I wish I was online for the Nikolai and Arkansas beta. Those are the only BBs I'm missing now.
