So, that Scharnhorst…talk about changing my tune!
I think your in Jingles videos
That last game was really nice. And no, no Scharnhorst yet on EU, hopefully tomorrow together with the 0.5.10 and the german BB’s. And just love all the double strikes!
Fletcher is, bar none, probably the best T9 DD in the game. Can’t wait for more news on the Black (premium fletcher) which I hope will be available not only as a ranked reward as the Flint is. How big of a difference do you feel the torpedo reload does between Gearing and Fletcher. Gearing has more guns to point straight forward, but IMO it looks like it would loose out on torps thanks to longer reload in comparison with the fletcher?
I wish I had more credits, because I’m just 15k off from the Gearing, but then I wont have credits for the german bb’s.
But oh well, just have to make due with the Khabarovsk in the meantime. Totally different play compared to the US DD’s, but also a great ship IMO. Especially specced without concealment, but with both DE and AFT. And only 200k xp until I get the 17th point and thus a second 3p skill on the captain as well. Go loud, go obnoxious, annoy the other team, especially BB’s until they start crying in chat how you are mean to them(True story, that did happen -Enemy Tirpitz: “he wouldnt stop firing at me… Oh god, the fires, the Fires”).
that last match was awesome to watch in stream. GG Business
That end… epic.
Haha, that torpedo double strike on the DDs was great. Straight line sailing, it’s not just for battleships anymore!
Dammit man, stop tempting me to buy the Scharnhorst! ;-P Fantastic game. Check your heart rate after that triple strike? lol Awesome video with great clips, great way to unwind after getting home from work.
gotta try the Khabarovsk… so long as you can manage risk properly (since it handles like a tashkent) it’s so good… i play the shit out of mine compared to my yammi
I LOVE my fucking Scharnhorst! By the way, I love when a Fletcher or a Gearing shot at my Khaba, because when they realises the fact to do such thing, hold their fire and hide again, they have the 50% or less health =D nice vid man, as always. Cya.
Wow, that Sharnie game rocks !! Some of your victims realy didn’t know what hit them… Can’t wait to see more of those games and check the ship out for myself.
Yo Business, cool vids bro. I’m kinda new to the game and about to get the Kirov. My cruiser captain has 7 skill points but I’m not sure where to put them. Can you give me some advice?
Hi Business, what is your opinion on Myoko vs. other T7 cruisers?
@ 9:30 o/
I just had to check that Fubuki’s stats… wanna guess what I found? Yeah…
7000Kts is roughly 1/4 speed for Khabarovsk, if I am not mistaken? With boost and signal it will most likley exceed Warp 11 or?
triple strike !
My Gearing has 16 points on the captain now wow, you will have fun with this ship.
Holy crap, I have never seen so many double strike in one episode of Ships & Giggle like this one!
that triple kill was hilarious
One of the ships I perform best in is the Myoko and this one seems similar enough, plus better armor and torp angles. Ok, the guns have bad dispersion.
ps: Still no SH on EU, SEA or RU
WG-EU does not think about releasing the Scharnhorst!! So many Players, me too, don’t understand their decission
Business6, getting Double Strikes like it’s a piece of cake… Meanwhile, I got my first ever Double Strike just a couple of weeks ago
I am such an easy mark for Wargaming, I wasn’t going to get this ship, but I can’t resist a good piece of aft!
I also considered the Scharnhorst analogous to the Ishizuchi, i.e overgrown CA’s.
There are a few ships that really don’t quite fit into their classifications. The Yubari and Atlanta are more DD’s than CA’s.
High tier Russian DD’s are the hardest for me to play as a DD, they are almost a ship type unto themselves. They have CA like detectability without the firepower and the torpedo’s short ranges don’t allow for them to make up the difference in CA v DD firepower. Which isn’t to say you can’t take on all sorts of ships and come out on top: the guns are great for long-range firing and they are fast enough to dodge incoming fire.
The main problem I have with Russian DD’s is it is harder to cap without getting pretty shot up. I like to lag behind the stealthy DD’s and support them once they spot other DD’s, but if I am the only DD on the team, things rarely go well.
I took old Colo for a spin last night and while I could consistently get 10k or so salvos on Scharns I could never find the citadel. —however, it was funny to see Scharn captains rage as their 11 inchers bounced off my side again and again and again.
Business6 – King of the double strikes! Awesome last game there. I’d like a Scharnhorst, but I think I’ll wait until I’m a better player before I take the plunge. Also since it’s a brawler, that’s not my strong suit. My computer slows to less than 2 fps when it has to cope with a furball. Very frustrating. Speaking of which, I had a nailed on kraken on my hands the other day in (believe it or not) my Karlsruhe until I attempted to thread the needle between 2 myogis – they woulda been kills 4 and 5 (neither of them targeting me). Unfortunately computer said no, wouldn’t fire my torps. Frame rate borderline locked and when it came back, I was dead (by secondaries). Still got >4.5K XP from the match but very frustrating.
Nice. Another Ships and Giggles!
Talking about DD captains.. so you’re saying that your most experienced captain is in the lowest tier and the most unexperienced in the Gearing?
Man what a fight! Only US has the Scharnhorst by now. Neither Asia, EU or RU has it in the shop. On Asia there are news about the 0.5.10.0 Update with a video with Dasha.

great vid, as usual! glad you like the Scharnhorst. in every vid i see with her she has (at least i think so) an unusual high amount of 2nddary hits for a T7…so atm…also seeing the high range of those on the upcomming german BBs…i have the feeling they made them more accurate then others nations bbs…as a trademark…which i would LOVE! have a good one
Yeah…the Scharnhorst is all kinds of fun. Bought her yesterday right away but didnt have time to take her out for a match. Did 100k damage in a loss and 70k in a win. The former was a T7 game with lots of tier 5s and you can basically roll over those ships left and right. Was trickier in the later game since it was a TIX game….but considered I charged down an iowa and got the kill…I think I’ll be happy with it.
Sea does not have the Scharnhorst, WG would rather sell us some more stupid flag packages -.-
Cool to see some Fletcher and Gearing matches, Business. I used to play destroyers more … then started playing battleships exclusively, and now back to my Benson and grinding up the line again. And you’re right about what you said about high tier DD gameplay … while all the other ships sit at max range, you can always find a brawl in USN DDs. Exciting ass gameplay. That being said, USN DDs excel at capping during domination matches, and seeing the rest your team sitting back and not supporting you is a biiiiiitch. I’m very much looking forward to getting the Fletcher as she can run an AA build with five guns, and her torps are monstrous (better than the Gearing’s in fact). Although the Gearing’s four front facing guns make it an excellent ship for running and gunning down Shimis who get within spotting range.
I also got the Scharnhorst and still getting used to her guns. I’ve only played five matches, but I had one match where I managed to only get off 5k damage (ick) … and then the following match did 105k, lol. But what I *really* like about her is her mobility and agility. She’s great at hit and run tactics and brawling and her secondaries are very impressive. My German BB captain is only at 12 points right now, but I’m looking forward to getting him to 15 so as to get Manual Secondaries which I expect will be brutal on this ship as well as many other ships in that line.
Business, what is your opinion on the Khab vs. Gearing?
I fight my Tirpitz as it is meant, I’ll do the same in the Scharnhorst when it is available for our server. Great work there Business!
great game play mate..keep up the great work
how do you get an 18 pt captain so easily I swear everyone has 18pt captain skills
No Biz we still dont have the scharnhorst
Oh man, that last replay.
Scharnhorst is definitely full of surprises. I wasn’t expecting much from her HE, but from what you’ve said and shown us, it’s shaping up to be a case of hard stats lying. And that gun traverse, simply marvelous.
Are you looking forward to the German battleships?
