Yeah you may as well attack, you get XP for getting shot even if you don't manage to take someone down with you.

The French cruiser line is incoming.

Tier I - Bougainville
Tier II - Jurien de la Gravière
Tier III - Friant
Tier IV - Duguay Trouin
Tier V - Emile Bertin
Tier VI - la Galissonnière
Tier VII - Algérie
Tier VIII - Charles Martel
Tier IX - Saint Louis
Tier X - Henri IV

Don't know much about them, but they look stylish.

Not sure what the flavour is on them yet, beside sailing backwards really fast and being blown up in harbour ¬_¬

I'm upto the mogami now, however I made a fatal error and accidentally rebought the myoko instead so I don't have enough cash. On the bright side I did have enough to get the neptune.

It has been confirmed, via the WoWs Facebook page, that Hood is coming soon. But no idea when yet. I wonder if that means the RN BB line is coming sooner rather than later. I expected that to be late this year.

Not quite sure how the Hood will perform in game, only time will tell I guess. But she sure will look impressive.

Do they incorporate the real ships design flaws into the game? Like hitting the Hood's magazine and turning it into a volcano?

A subject that has been debated on the forums, along with the incoming French cruisers being able to go backwards faster than forwards. :lol:

The hood will have weak deck armour leaving more vulnerable at range to plunging fire. Oddly enough a weakness shared by the German battleships.

Havent played this in a good while, as I got back in to ESO. But I had a good few games in the Bogatyr yesterday. Its my go too ship when I want some not so serious fun. Had a few games yesterday against carriers, which is interesting as it doesnt have any aa guns, but I dodged almost all of them.

I Hope french cruisers will re-balance games a little and reduce the number of battleships in games. I do like cruisers, but not that great in them. Yet to find one at higher tiers I have wanted to keep playing. I noticed In 0.6.4 on the pts, the mogami's 155mm turrets get a major buff in rotation speed. With buffs and skills etc, its down to low 30's. Not great, but better than it was.

Had a quick go with the Mogami on the PTS, now that its been buffed. Maybe I should finish grinding the Myoko. Those 155mm guns do a fine job with the recent changes to the captain skills.

Getting back into this, as and when I have time. Getting to really like the Gneisenau. Being a little cautious in the first half of the battle seems to work for me. I have had 15 games in it, 7 Ranked (71% wr), the rest Random (78% wr). My average damage is....a little average, but never mind. Took more than a little delight from getting 3 citadel hits on an Iowa in just 2 salvos. Thank you, and good night. :lol:


0.6.4 is due to land on the EU server on Thursday morning. Along with numerous fixes and buffs, including the much needed Mogami 155mm turret buff, we get the French cruisers and the Italian cruiser Duca d'Aosta as a premium.

Most interesting though, the Tirpitz gets its secondary range buffed to match the Bismarck's. Guess Tirpitz sales are going to go up now.

Had a quick dabble with the French cruisers this morning, now that they are live. I must say, they are quite pleasing on the eyes. Stylish.

Well that's ok. First game in it. 6 x Cits. OK, most of those were other french cruisers, but it will do for a starter.

Now that hasn't happened in a while. 120K damage, in my ARP Kongo.
