Unrelated question: should I load all my good American commanders into my cruisers before Friday?
Expecting Notser (or any other CC) to make a video on that before friday! 🙂
It doesn’t matter, my first video was incorrect on the commander doubling. You will get a new commander with the same amount of skill points as the new tier for each ship that moves. Cleveland gets a 8 skill, Pensacola will get a 6 skill, Nee Orleans a 7 skill. The original captain stays on the tier slot. So my 19 skill Cleveland will stay at the main line tier 6 slot
Notser will you make a video with the latest news? I kinda depend on that 🙂
Interesting. If I am any judge of online gaming forums, we will be seeing wailing and gnashing of teeth, cries that WG hates us…and of course the I’ll never give them another dime meme…..in other words same old same old.
Yep, I’ll have a video about 7.5
TFW German DD gunboats are more effective torpedo boats than the IJN DD torpedo boats.
german dds are basically just what ijn dds should have been all along. i enjoy my ijn dds, but still…
German DDs have never been ‘gunboats’. They’re hybrids at most. Then there’s ships like the T-22 which is a pure torpedo boat. Its guns are worthless.
(BTW I honestly really enjoy the T-22. I feel like the reason so many people dislike it is because they’re trying to play it like a gunboat…which it 100% isn’t).
the tanks guns are not worthless, look at the mutsuki lul
i liked the t22, but z52 is where it’s at!:D
The German torpedoes have similar stealth to the old IJN torpedoes. There is no current reason for the IJN torp nerf.
IJN dds need some love too 🙁
This is the only time that notser carried
“Big girls have slow rudders”
Come on Notser, at least you should give the 150 some credit. While it’s not as universal as the 127, the jump in damage department ia realy nice, and the fire change too. 😉
And the AP isn’t terrible against light cruisers either
if you insist on fighting cruisers at range your AP can shine…
I’ve always considered the German DD’s as a torpedo boat first, with usable guns as a secondary. With this approach, I’ve had loads of fun with my German DD’s. As long as I don’t try to knife-fight with them and only use guns at range, the 150’s do really well. It’s also very satisfying to citadel any cruiser that shows me a broadside…
Don’t forget about incapacitating modules (especially engine/guns). It’s especially visible when gun-fighting enemy DD (and it can really be a decisive factor).
Akatsuki really need concealment buff, as a pure torpedo boat, her concealment just too bad, 6.1 or 6.0 km should be awesome for her
Nah her guns and speed are already great. Tbh I think she’s already one of the best tier 7 DDs
The fact that this gets a concealment module really puts this a step above all the other tier 7 DDs in terms of ability to contest. All the other tier 7 DDs will usually get outspotted by tier 6s and higher tiers
So true. What does the Maass even have over this? Besides the lower calibre guns (which I consider equivalent, not better,) I can’t think of anything it out-competes the Z-39 in.
the Maass has way better DPM (Z-39 HE: 70400; Z-39 AP: 118400; Maass HE: 112500; Maass AP: 225000), and turns better
The KM DD 150mm guns need to have the KM 1/4 pen baked in. It would make them function better when uptiered.
William Sollers, isn’t it already 1/4 calibre penetration for all German ships or am I mistaken? I always assumed it was for all Germans including destroyers. I was going to start grinding more German ships once the American cruisers actually finish splitting.
Alex Quantum IIRC the 1/4 is only on BBs and CA/CLs.
Probably shelved 🙁
RIP T61 :,(
nah … I took the Z-39 … tired of waiting on T-61 and the Z is decent at tier 7 … yes it is more expensive than the other T7 ships because of the +1 upgrade slot but so far I like the performance and the concealment vs the Maass is a huge bonus …
Seen this on littlewhitemouses review lol https://i.imgur.com/p2IveRp.gif
I still think you should add all possible consumables to the ship info part of the video during the beginning (when you’re showing the armor, guns, torps, etc.).
Damnit, I forgot. You are right
Love German DDs, am considering to buy this before the bundle is over. Question is, is it worth to buy?
Noster I swear WOWs could give you a rowboat DD with a single torpedo tube that you have to light with a match and somehow you would still be deadly. Excellent game play as always.
It’s why experience can sometimes trump raw stats. Hence buyer beware. Dropping cash or spending into a stronger ship doesn’t equate into wins. Plus you have to remember that he’s going to show off the ship at it’s best in these impressions/reviews — there were probably games where it was less than stellar simply because of extenuating circumstances (ie. map, teams, RNGesus), LOL.
It’s too bad Notser doesn’t livestream because I’d love to watch him play because I learn the most from watching veterans like stuntman or Peacekeeper who do stream.
I livestream 🙂 twitch.tv/notser
Ah excellent, I didn’t hit the [show more] button. Will check it out.
Hey Notser. Can you make a video of the battleship North Carolina please
I guess Notser I am a masochist. I enjoy the 150s. So if I get the $$$ I will pick it up.
The concealment module availability is just stupid. Everyone takes it, so why not just fix the base detection in the first place? Oh, wait, it’s a way for WG to force you to pay 1m silver. 🙁
Erik Trimble Concealment Mod costs 2m silver, and you could also go for Target Acquisition or Rudder, depending on what you want to do with your ship.
Sirene Racker No one takes the others. Ever. On every DD except some USSR ones, that’s used for Concealment. It’s a reflection of how badly concealment is broken in the game that it’s literally automatically taken by 99% of both DDS and CAs.
And that it’s 2m not 1m just reinforces my point.
You can use concealment and rudder.
except hindenburgs and henri’s and every other ship that opts for steering gears 3 instead. I agree with your assessment, however most of the ships have must take mods because they obviously fit that niche, like a torpedo boat taking torpedo reload mod vs AA range mod, etc… Only a few ships have mods that contest for the spot, like minotaur with reload vs AA 25% boost vs primary range mod. You could argue for all until youre blue in the face. primary reload because turret traverse wont take a hit – 3 second reload wont get muh benefit from a percentage based mod. AA range mod because minotaur already has great AA numbers, add 25% boost would be a nice boon. range mod so you can shoot from behind more islands than just the ones 15km away, will have a higher arc for getting shells over the tallest of mountains when using radar instead of smoke.
some ships have options, some dont, but it would still be nice for Wargaming.net to take a few more passes over the captain skills and general purpose mods. When a ship that gives nearly any fucks about concealment like a Kurfurst takes concealment over target aquisition, you know something is wrong with the balance. Just a few more balance passes with an impartial view would be nice
People take Concealment because it’s the easiest way to play, but not necessarily the strongest. A DD that focuses on cap contesting can also go for Target Acquisition for the 3km Proxy detect, I have seen those in Ranked this season and it’s like a permanent Hydro, when played correctly.
Yes, this ship seems quite overpowered 😉
Dude, you mentioned going the “wrong way” but I didn’t get that impression at all. You took part of a single salvo but your position set you up for that last torp strike. I thought you played awesome! A good, old fashion Notser stomp! Thank you for the upload.
An expert’s ship, I think. Some strange things going on with it.
