The odds are against us! Will the tripple gun turrets of the New Mexico class battleship be enough to fight back the forces of evil? Lets find out in this look at World of Warships!

I watched this match on the livestream, but it was just so good that i had to watch it again here on the channel! Even though i knew what was going to happen i enjoyed it again nonetheless!
Keep up the great work SideStrafe!
great game, too bad you didn’t have a little better team.
Awesome match :P
Kicking ass and chewing bubble gum. Damn man that was the best match I’ve ever seen anywhere. Patience and forward thinking if defently paid off. Nice to see another one using AP. Thought I was the only one.
Great game!!!. The rng is on you Sidestrafe!!!.
Glad you chose this match! It was good live, but the better quality totaly makes it worth watching it again!
Entertainment at its best. +1 for the format too. Thanks SideStrafe.
I got 1 shot in my myogi by a new mexico at 15 km away a few minutes ago. When luck is on the side of the New Mexico, it’s totally OP. And it terms of a “fun” gameplay, queuing up for a battle in a tier 4 battleship and getting 1 shotted before you even were in range is Fed up. well played though.
Just what the fuck was Kawachi doing in 6 tier battle?
I love the format. Nice to hear what you’re saying during gameplay, and vid quality is a bonus.
xlnt quality, gr8 game!
rekt all dem ships
I love the format. It Is almost better I hear what you have to say during the stress and of the battle than to listen to u commenting when u already know what is going to happen. Great vid.

Such easy going game, well done. Btw its always nice to be top tier of a battle.
So Sidestrafe, I love watching your videos and the commentary is just at another level compared to other youtubers. I would like to know your opinion on World of warships compared to Wot and WoWp and will this divide the players even more between games or will also fade like wowp?
Fantastic game! I really would like to see more of this ship because you play it very well. Your entertainment standards have done it again.
Well i can tell you that in my Warspite the only same tier ship i genuinely fear is the New Mexico, it does a great job at punching through my normally great angled armor
Pronouncing Furutaka like in English T_T… Don’t give me the excuse ” I don’t speak Japanese! “, it’s typical that people use English pronunciation to pronounce words in other language instead of ” Hey, how is it pronounce? ” and looking up on Internet!
+Ross Pennny Lol okay.. Isn’t his playing games on Twitch and doing videos on Youtube ? You are really saying to me that maximum 10 minutes is too much to learn how sounds are pronounced in Japanese? Shouldn’t it be a part of his job to be pronouncing ships names right since he is doing it for a living? There is videos telling you how to pronounce the sounds, which is not even hard since English already have all those sound ? Even Google Translate do it right! Seriously, there is no good excuses, if not a brain injuries making a person unable to do so. My comment isn’t trying to be offensive to him, it’s simply that.. well. Like I explained above.
Personally, it bother to see a name and not knowing how to say it, so I am going to search it. It’s knowledge and it help to have language logics. By exemple I don’t speak German, but I am really often right about how it should be pronounce.
It’s really something I would like to change from people mind, to think every language is pronounced like their language. Mostly English speaker who are doing it from my experience.
He is playing a game, what if I don’t know, Maybe he doesn’t have the time or effort to research how all the ships are pronounced give him some slack.
A How To… carry the team, at least looking at the results and XP, nice game as well :)
for BB, range your shot…
you are not sure how much lead you need? fire one shot, NOT FULL SALVO, once you are certain of the lead you need then you fire the rest of the salvo… or hell fire the next gun with new adjustment, if it hits or is very close to mark then fire the rest…
better than wasting all your salvo and missing all of them and wait 30 seconds for the next salvo, then miss it again
if you are already used to the ranging and lead, good… you can skip this probably if you are not that good with the lead however… well then you do it the same way they do it back then too without radar…
very basic skill that a lot of newer BB driver surprisingly still haven’t figured out, not hard to do, and the risk of giving early warning to the enemy that you have ranged him is certainly much less severe than wasting all your salvo
you can afford to miss with full salvo in rapid firing CL / CA and DDs you cannot do so with BB and CV where your ordnance take forever to reload compared to everyone else…
Man this really makes me want to get a battleship. Being able to destroy a ship like that with one full salvo is awesome.
7 kills. Nice one sidestrafe. Love your vids, long time fan. Keep up the quality gameplay and footage
Awesome show of seamanship and gunnery SS, Salute!
good video. thanks for posting! just got into this game and it’s great. I like the fact that we get to enjoy the game with you as you play. Reactions are always fun to watch as well.Keep it up!
its stupid we cant controll the back up guns
Nice. I think you are the first to upload 1080p.
Sidestrafe will always be op :), he is the “Lone Wolf”
Looks great, like the higher resolution.
You know these deja vu moments…..12 ish min into this video….then SS says something that remind you , you were watching him on twitch yesterday and have heard and seen everything in this video already….. but ill re-watch it ….cause SS is canadien.
With all of the torpedos, HE, fires, flooding, and the fact that you’re the biggest target on the map, the catharsis of opening up with a salvo and sinking an opponent in one big blast more than makes up for it all.
thumps up, just thumps up – I hate low tier BBs because they miss EVARASING!!! But you just hit without shotsplicing. Awesome video/match.
Side, what’s do you think of players abusing the blue edge lines?
Thought the Kongo was using that exploit, but it seems not. Anyway, what’s your take on it?
I increasingly see players actively exploiting it to gain advantage. It essentially hides half the ship but allowing them to fire back.
+ApexPredator_ abusing? Are people using that line as a break?
+SideStrafe Yeah it should act like an island. :3
I quite like it
Always enjoy your content.
This style would work better if you brought some friends into stream with you and you had some live banter while playing etc.
Not saying this was terrible or anything, just giving some constructive feedback :P
Great job! And the format works.
You sir are incredible at this game.
As a top BB player, the only thing I’d say in this that REALLY made me cringe was that you other than not setting the ‘priority target’ for 2nds (supposedly ups your accuracy) Was that you don’t seem to make it your personal habit to lock your guns while looking/aiming elsewhere from the target location. Its a good idea to always lock your guns either with the RMB or best with Ctrl+X between shots or while locking around so you are never at a loss for your firing solution due to how long guns take to rotate +SideStrafe It helps a lot and several firing opportunities would not have been lost this game. (combined with how well the ship did, that’s saying something.)
But yeah, tier 6 and up if its not a DD get the rudder upgrade esp on CA’s and BBs. (on a CV or the Fuso, might go propulsion 2 but otherwise, yeah. go rudder.)
I only played 500 games in closed beta and have only just gone past 200 in open beta (work, life commitments etc). My survival rate is 54% currently, I do not know whether that is good or not? I was just interested in whether there are already player stats available for comparison? That being said I do not want an xvm style mod in game as this has contributed significantly to arrogant and toxic behaviour in WoT. It would be a pity for the WoWs community and game experience to go down this route. Furthermore, it causes enemy teams to focus down on the statistically better players…
+xiaobaozha Results and ‘Survival’ stats along with knowledge.
Play a few several hundred games in every class of ship like us, you might learn.
It must be awesome being a top BBS player. Forgive me, how do you know you are a top BBS player and do you often get that many kills?
Very well played, Sidestrafe 🙂 (missed the stream :/ )
LOL! Turn subtitles on and go to 1:28
+Exileine As the great Jingles would say: Oh, YouTube, you so silly.
Thats just beautiful m8. Keep it up
+Ola Olsson Thanks!
Great quality Side, like the look of the video. I really appreciate you and iChase covering this title, it’s definitely my latest gaming obsession. That battle was well fought, I look forward to seeing you on the high seas.
+Russell Wishart Appreciate it.
Regarding match time concerns: Since it is fairly difficult for 2 ships to battle (find eachother) when they are the only two left it might be easier if 20 seconds or so would be added for each ship sunk (i.e. 3 ships in the match have sunk = 1 minute of extra game time)
Love the format, Side. Either this or the normal post-commentary work great.
+elijahmct Thanks for the feedback.
Like this format, especially since I can’t always make it to the streams. Keep up the great work!
+memaava Thanks, will do!
Wow… What a match!
SideStrafe likes to bust some bulkheads in his spare time.
broadsides with standards!
That was just epic to watch. Shame you didn’t win, but I think that you had a good chance, if you had a few more minutes.
i like the HD quality with the in game comm.
Loved the New Mexico, and having an annoying time adjusting to the Colorado.
+T Thulin Same, but the North Carolina is worth it.
Do the have the uss salt lake city
+dizzy panda They have the Pensacola class cruiser (tier 7 cruiser)in the game: if my Google Works the Salt Lake City was of that class?
+SideStrafe Hypnotoad has a video on in which he gives some tips on aiming – basically, for a 20 knot ship like a Wyoming, each mark on the scale in bino view is equal to one second of shell flight time. For a fast 30 knot ship like the Kongo, you double that. Allowing for the angle the other ship is traveling, that’s turned out to be remarkably accurate.
+SideStrafe congrats on the most awesome game!!!
+SideStrafe interesting, haven’t noticed that problem when I’ve been doing it.
+mrspeigle1 I do that once in awhile. The issue is it lets the enemy know you are on them and provides time to react. So I’ve gotten in the habbit of firing a full volly to avoid the issue. However, doesn’t always work out. Situational I suppose.
+GrifflezGaming Thanks for the feedback, mutch appreciated.
