Udaloi on Trap moves toward B to attempt a capture for the team. We try to stay as far back as possible from the enemy aircraft and ships. A destroyer shows up, we engage with our guns and pop smoke. Another ship also arrives and we do our best to remain hidden while doing some damage. The enemies wipe out our team that was attack A. They push down toward B, I make use of torpedoes and retreat to C. One final push comes and we’re doing everything within our power to win. Hope you enjoy the game and have a wonderful day!
Tier IX Soviet Destroyer Udaloi Replay
Hey Notser, I was wondering what 4 point skill to take on my IJN DD
captain. Do you think demo expert will be any good? We don’t shoot much
with DDs anyway. Another looks good to me is the survival expert.
Great vid! you do the best job of setting the stage with the ship initial
conditions. Can you include the game version as a standard item as well?
Game play sometimes depends on this and vids stay up for ever. Thanks for
the great work, and I look fwd to lots more. Cheers.
9:04 When did you last play WOT on max graphics? Looks better than Armored
Warfare, and while I dunno about the scenery in the latest WT patch, the
tank models (HD tank models to be exact) look FAR better in WOT than the
War Thunder Tanks!
Same goes for Armored Warfare, which has very well detailed tank models,
BUT – they look like plastic, not enough metallic texturing. And WT GF
seems to be the opposite! The metal is shiny like a plate of glass – or
rusty and grimy.
Anyway WOT FTW! Also, if I EVER hear someone call Armored Warfare “More
realistic than WOT” again, I will find them – and I will vomit with rage on
People talk about “Paper tanks” in WOT, but at least apart from just 2 or 3
tanks that are simply fantasy, EVERY tank in WOT was at least a blueprint
design proposal, many even made it to the full scale model and prototyping
stage – and a few such as the BatChat 25t and IS7 were actually produced
fully, as in the tanks built were built fully functional, even though only
2 or 3 ever existed.
While EVERY TANK in Armored Warfare DOES exist, the stats – aka WHAT MAKES
A TANK – are ENTIRELY fake paper stats! So you do get real tanks that were
really produced BUT – almost NONE of the tanks in AW perform anything CLOSE
TO how they do in real life!
Take the Leopard 1 for instance, the gun it uses is also used on MANY other
vehicles in real life and IN AW, well the Leopard 1 was a great tank, and
it’s gun was WHY it was such an amazing tank!
The Leopard 1 was NOT upgraded and replaced because the GUN was weak, no
quote the opposite!
The APDS round designed for the Leopard 1 – the standard ammunition
designed for it to use the day it entered service – had approximately 330mm
penetration of 30° sloped steel at 500 meters, and later APFSDS as well as
HEAT-FSDS had over 400mm and 485mm at 500 meters vs 30°sloped steel – these
rounds ARE AVAILABLE for the Leopard 1 both in real life AND in Armored
Warfare. Except in Armored Warfar, the APFSDS has just 238mm of pen, and
the best HEAT has something like 195 FFS!
For anyone actually reading all of this, I Know someone is going to say
“Well the Leopard 1 has only 268mm of pen with its APCR round, and it’s
HEAT round has just 330mm of pen!” Also someone is BOUND to say “The
Leopard 1 never even fired APCR” – which is true, but if you were to simply
click on the Ammo type you will see it listed as “10.5cm APDS” – and of
course it does not get fully historical 330mm of pen.
Actually, WOT takes data from these kinds of guns from 1km to 1.25km range,
at which point you will see that the Leopard 1 with its stock APDS round
has exactly 268mm of pen!
And this has the effect of making ALL tier X tanks that fire
APCR/APDS/APFSDS as standard ammo – have VERY little penetration dropoff!
If you were to look at the penetration of any of these tanks at 400 meters,
you will find that the average drops by just 10mm! So the E-50M has 270mm
of pen at 100m, and at 400m the E-50M still has 260mm average pen! Again
this is because the pen values are extrapolated from 1km, and as you can
imagine a high velocity high penetration round loses a VERY negligible
amount of pen between 1km and 1.4km!
And if you have to as WHY WG does it this way, you really do not understand
WOT. WOT uses small map sizes to make it more fun for more people, and to
make it easier to step away from if you need to do something else.
I personally prefer the map sizes WOT uses. Very little time is spent
driving around hoping to find an enemy before one finds you, the action is
much more fast paced as a result. Which makes reflexes, skill, knowledge,
and strategy what you NEED to excel at WOT.
WOWS manages to have a similar FEEL, whilst playing completely differently!
Those reflexes, skills, knowledge, and tactics are VERY IMPORTANT TO being
a GOOD captain in WOWS!
And I am NOT the kind of gamer that can just hop into any game and very
quickly learn everything important to become a better than average player!
What I AM, is a person that CAN learn a great many things very quickly and
easily – and then remember them forever! But as a gamer? Well anytime I
play a game that is completely new to me – I am always LOST at first!
And being the kind of PERSON I am, what helps me get past the actual
“Newbie” stage more than anything else – is watching good players and
listening to them talk about what they are doing why and how! And beyond
that I also tend to MEMORIZE ALL STATS – so that I know what any given
enemy is capable of, as well as what the ship I am in is capable of!
And unfortunately for my WOT career, I was pretty much a TOTAL noob for
about 4 to 4.5k games total!
I mean I DID start playing WOT in September of 2011, so there were NO
programs or websites like Tank Inspector or Tanks.gg – and the WOT YouTube
community was TINY, with very few truly helpful videos that would help
teach a person to become a better player.
I could “Re-Roll” my WOT account – IF I CARED! Because personally I believe
Re-rolling is for REtards with too much time and money…
Especially given the fact that I will never be able to buy a new E-25, the
KV-5 is rarely ever for sale, the PZIV Schmalturm is GONE (Some people will
laugh, but I LOVE that tank!) Rudy is rare, I would have to actually PAY
FOR my T34 Heavy, as well as re-buy my IS7 and every other premium I enjoy,
and that does not even include my 5 tier 10s – almost to 6 as I have the
Object 704 up to 180k experience towards the 268!
At first I was REALLY not sure about the Mikhail Kutuzov, I wasn’t sure if
she was worth the same amount of money that I spent on my Atago, but now?
I LOVE MY KUTUZOV! My brother was bitching about the name! Cause every
single match I played last night – I was just amazed how well I did, and
how incredibly well the Kutuzov does her job!
Anymore, I would NEVER give up either my Atago or Kutuzov!
One of said matches last nigh: I ended up following a broadside North
Carolina, and after 2 salvos of HE, and seeing that he was going to keep
sailing straight, I switched to AP, and my first volley was with just my 6
front guns – and they did an AWESOME 5.4k, and right on cue when my front
guns reloaded my back guns finished swinging around, next Salvo = 11k
From there I pumped another good 3 or 4 broadside AP salvos into him, when
I noticed 2 things, he was about to go behind a small island, and he was at
7.5km and closing range! So I launched my torps on narrow spread – and BOOM
– an enemy Myoko got what seemed to be a triple citadel on me.
So I quickly switch my guns to him – and he was full HP! Well first salvo,
3 citadels and 6 regular hits for 12.5k, he then hit me with HE for about
5k, and I was VERY close to death here, and right as I am launching my next
salvo at the Myoko *GOOOONG We have destroyed an enemy battleship!* – next
salvo on the Myoko, just 1 citadel and 2 hits for 4.5k cause he was smart
enough to actually, yanno USE HIS RUDDER AND THROTTLE!
Anyway he DID kill me, but not before I had taken him from 100% HP to just
11k completely by myself!
It’s a shame that my friendlies kept shelling the North Carolina, because
he WOULD have eaten all 5 torpedoes! Only one hit registered as it took
away the last 8.7k HP the North Carolina had, but all 5 torpedoes hit the
ships hull perfectly!
If that would have happened, an 85k damage match would have exceeded 100k!
Oh well, only a matter of time before I get past 100k in both my Mikhail
At least my record in my Kutuzov is decent, not quite as good as I would
like, but I did have to learn the ship, and I have only played 15 matches
in her so far.
But my poor Atago record… I bought her early on, long before I was
actually a “Good” player, and by that I mean that not only do I know what
role to play in what ship, but also I have become used to the LARGE amount
of multitasking required to become a strong player.
Like my Father – he CANNOT do anything in WOWS with nearly the speed
required! For example, say he is playing his Blyskawica, shooting at some
BB whilst closing range – well when it comes time to launch torpedoes he
first fumbles his fingers all over the keys – then proceeds to look down at
the keyboard and THEN finally presses the 3 key!
And my god is it hard to watch him fumble to hit repair, smoke, and switch
from guns to torpedoes or vice versa – it takes him what feels like ages to
get all of that done!
But, to be quite honest – I was exactly like that – for quite some time!
Especially as I would get used to using all AP during CBT because my Yubari
could citadel any BB it met from any angle using AP. Then WG fixes the
armor models and buffs HE – well then it becomes the case that EVERYONE was
always firing HE at all times in almost classes!
Anyway, even into about 200 matches of open beta to now, I just SUCKED as a
captain in WOWS!
But what REALLY helped me get past my Newbie stage, was to WATCH: You,
iChase, Aeroon, VoulezVous,Flamu and others!
All of you do a WONDERFUL job at explaining why you should do what, and
being that all of you are amazing players – just observing your actions
closely has made me an incomprehensibly better player than I ever thought I
Whereas I used to be happy just exceeding my ship’s HP in any given match –
now, if I don’t at least double my ship’s HP (in most cases, and mostly as
a general example) in damage, I feel like I let my team down!
war thunder gameplay pls notser XD haha
WOW, I did not know how powerful AP is for DD. I would never think to fire
AP at an iowa in any destroyer. Does this work for US DDs or just the RU
Would be awesome if they added target used damage control hot key
I really love how into your commentary and games you get, makes for really
Great game, Keep them coming.
I suppose, and I say this with all the benefits of hindsight, that once you
saw the last DD move towards you you could’ve tried turning the ship around
and start running away. That way you create some space to dodge shots,
maybe allow you to seek refuge behind an island. Even after the DD is dead,
you’re sailing towards the cruisers instead of away from them.
But again, hindsight is 20/20 and with the added benefit of not being shot
at by three different ships. Great game.
Congrats Notser! Well played! I really enjoy watching your videos – keep up
the good work :)
Random question, how much time did you spend into games in general
Nosty, if you have replay of other game, can you do it on a second account,
because one of the think I like about Nosty channel is it is clean.
War Thunder Planes?
Why the Kagero used C hull?
130mm DD gun pen through Battleship armor
Great video. I just fully upgraded the Udaloi and it is probably the
hardest DD to master so far. Go for commander concealment skill 5 or just
use demolition expert?
good news going on holiday. bad news miss notsers vids. GREAT news, get to
sit down and watch 13 eps with a couple of beers. THANK YOU Notser!
Ps. you talked about live gigs. did i miss anything?
what an amazing game Noster!! You did so well to hold your posistion in the
center of the map! Its a shame you lost alot of friendlies in the begining
otherwise the outcome would of been much different!
Show do a video about HMS Campbeltown
Not see how do you do a manual drop
Notser for presidont
i dont think you can be scouted by planes if your anti air is off and
notser thank you for talking to me yesterday you are the god of world of
Wow! it’s very easy to understand your English(for international) and you
are playing really cool!
I really enjoy how you treat losses and victories the same way. Keep up the
no big Beal im the hindenburg in the video.
We want war thunder footage notser!
Please how to disable AA to prevent beeing spotted?
Great play as always. Very entertaining.
It’s refreshing to see difficult/close battles, even when you lose. So much
better than the dismal roflstomps that so frequently occur.
It’s funny your losses score more xp than my wins!
I always enjoy your videos.
Keep up the good work
Fantastic game Notser!
2.2k in a loss 🙂 Great game!
Great game Notser!! The Udaloi is going to be one of the few Tier IXs I am
interested in, mainly because of how much I enjoyed the pre-nerf Kiev.
Honestly though, I think Tier VIII is the sweet spot and my favorite tier
to play. I am almost done with Tashkent however… Oh, and by the way, last
night I played 15 games and got detonated 3 times. No joke, 3 out of 15.
Luckily none of them were first hit dets.
Notser, can you to come up with a logical, repeatable means of dealing with
RADAR when driving a DD? We need a method other than staying away… also,
at the end of this match could the friendly carrier have done anything to
assist near the end?
I didnt open udaloi yet, with looking stats it seems slower with better
concealment I thought those torp tubes were triple, great game notser even
its lost, its profitable lose
I love to see you playing destroyers 🙂 could you maybe du a how to
destroyer? I suck a lot in my american dds ^^
Did I just hear you hinting at WAR THUNDER content? <--so happy
Notser, Is there any way to do reviews of all DD’s again? best talents? I
have the Blyscawika and need advice on best equipment and commander talents
GG Notser! Favorite ship in WOWs. I would have attacked the atago in B with
guns and lost my ship earlier, good to learn from by seeing your alternate
better game play out.
But Notser, you have a press account, why do you need credits anymore?
j/k – playing the press account doesn’t make your stats go up.
Great video as always! I love the Udaloi, and finally got the Khab unlocked
yesterday right before bed 🙂 And it’s reassuring to know you use the same
tactic as me on Trap 😉 I run AFT + DE on my captain too. Dropped
concealement, and no regrets!
Notser – Working on the Tashkent right now… any advice for getting
through it? its pretty brutal…
Can you make video new British gold dd?
GG Notser. Sad that so many peolple, even at higher Tier, are so tactical
MOOORE DD gameplay !!!
Had my best game ever yesterday. In a Blys (with level 17 capt) on Fault
line . We were behind on points all match. In the last 4 minutes i was the
last ship of our team and managed to kill the enemies 3 last ships in our
cap. The last bb just 1 sec before the game was over. So glorious. 8 kills!
Unfortunately I reinstalled my game and had save replays off… Cherishing
the screen shots though :-). And with the great lessons of Notser in mind.
It all paid off in that game.
Hope to see you in the Blys once again some day.
if i send out a set of torpedoes, one of them hit a island, will enemy spot
other torps by the explosion??
Gr8 video Notser :)
PLEASE MAKE MORE VIDEOS I LOVE IT!
