Have to say, .. I prefer the Ocean Map myself.  :)

I tend to drive BBs a lot, .. and on the Island Maps, .. every time I try to avoid Torps, .. I tend to end up on a Beach ..  :(

My crew don't seem to mind tho ..   8)

Is it just me or is the Aoaba just as big of a POS as the Furutaka at tier 5? I don't care what caliber the guns are but every game I've taken it into I've just been torn to pieces by pretty much everything. Really split on whether to keep grinding with the Aoaba or play more games in my Cleveland. I think the Myoko is better then the Pensacola but I'm much closer to getting Pensacola.

The Aoba is way better than the Furutaka - better AA, much faster ROF.  The Myoko is better still with 2 more turrets.   The limited torp arc is pretty brutal though and maneuvering for a shot really exposes you to citadel hits. 

I myself, rather than going for straight up 1v1 vs other cruisers, try to play a opportunistic team role.  Try to fill the gaps -- if its a 2v1 carrier situation, you may want to hang back a bit and provide some AA for the almost certain gank.  I've had numerous games with 15 planes shot down - that makes a difference.  So many cruisers are terrible at DD screening as well, fill some gaps there if you can.   

I think the Mogami is where the line will come into its own -- at least I hope so  :)

I've done decently with the Aoba.  It's not the best cruiser out there, but it's far better than the Furutaka was IMO.  If it had more than six main guns, it would be quite good.  I also think it is fairly fast and maneuverable, even for a CA.  Just doesn't have quite as much overall firepower as some others.  The next pair in the Jap CA line look superb, of course.

I can get some citadel hits with Aoba, against other cruisers, so it can be too RNGesus reliant with it's primary damage dealing AP shells.  Although I'm not sure if some of those American CAs even have much in the way of citadel hit boxes.  >:(  Also - while it's AA firepower isn't as heavy as some of the US cruisers, it's 25mm AA guns (the vast majority of it's AA dps) have a range of 3km.  I think much of the US cruiser AA cannons are at the 2 and 2.5km range.  Which means nearly all of it's AA dps can be boosted to higher ranges overall.  This tends to get me a steady amount of aircraft kills, so I still try to screen the heavies to some extent.

Lastly, those quad torpedo launchers on the rear quarter have proven to be life savers in numerous close range fights to the death, and even some long range hits.  I really enjoy using torpedoes and have had fairly regular success with them (that's why I've played more DD than anything), so the Japanese cruiser line was a no brainer for me.  Looking forward to getting two quad launchers on each side in future tiers.  >:D

IIRC, Tiers 1 & 2 are just cruisers.  But T2 has a destroyer split and T3 splits off to battleships.  Then BBs branch off to carriers at 4.

Dunno how current that is but it looks pretty close to what I recall.

If anyone wants to group up with us in WoWS, then let us know.

We have been using Steam's group chat for voice.  Since there can only be three in a group, it's not too bad.

Thanks for the games, a lot more fun than playing solo!..

Sorry about the couple of Co-Op's by mistake, no wonder they were so small!

We should give Skype a try see if it has better quality voice.

As long as it has the ability to use invite-only or password protected rooms on the freebie version, then it's worth checking out.


My ISP issues showed up on their end too.  They're sending a tech out tomorrow night so I may not be on until late if at all.  The guy will probably tell me what I already know - a specific piece of their hardware needs to be replaced.  Going through the motions.  ::)
