The reload rate is slow compared to other T7 BB's because her salvo weight is enormous. You can use this fun website to quickly compare ships and their characteristics: https://shiptool.st/


Then also check the shell ballistics for that big AP salvo...

You can see that California has a combination of several factors - 2nd highest AP salvo weight, accuracy, range, and ballistics, that all make her an excellent sniper. The tradeoff is that she is slow and that she has a long reload. The reload is slightly worse than Florida and Sinop, though her shells are heavier than Florida's and there is no comparing range/accuracy to Sinop.

If you're not a fan of the heavy-broadside / Sniper style that the American "Standard" Battleships bring, you might enjoy Gneisnau, Prinz Heinrich, or Renown'44 as they are much better suited to close-quarter slugfests.

She's designed as a sniper, which is why she has a large salvo weight, good verticle dispersion, and incredible ballistics. She can't be good at EVERYthing...

That was quick! This was fixed just hours before I mentioned it. @Ahskance also mentioned it and it was adjusted.

Please note that not ALL missions are available in AE mode, but the vast majority are.

Hiya,

While there certainly will not be a micro-patch, but things like this can be adjusted. We will pass on your feedback about the DY missions not being available for Airship Escort Mode. If I'm speculating here - I suspect that it was not considered since the DY missions were created back in October or November for the December Dockyard. Airship Escort was not on anyone's mind when that happened, so it's possible that this is something that could be added.

Thanks!

There is a known bug where the music from the Santa's Crate Window will continue to play outside of it's area.

It's actually not that big or ungainly. I keep seeing people call it the same hull as Agir / Siegfried - but it's not. It's more maneuverable on it's own and with the speed-boost it can do a lot more. I almost always take prop-mod over rudder, but I might try rudder as I find myself running down other DD's and cruisers and needing to swing my nose alot.
It's actually a fair bit skinnier than it's two "sisters".
Also, I'm seeing people mistaking the dispersion of the secondaries. It has the same base dispersion as the Preussen / GK line.

Have to disagree with you here.
Schroder's agility is not even in the same league as Agir. Schroder has a 15% speed-booster on a German Large Cruiser. That's pretty bananas. Not only that, it's on a Large Cruiser that specifically is bristling with secondaries, meaning you can chase and "lock down" ships in your secondary range and guarantee kills in many cases. Like a number of other DY ships, Schroder takes some time to find her strengths, then get good at exploiting them, but the speed-boost is a game-changer for something with that much upper-hull armor and that many powerful secondaries

Technically they could, yes - but what I don't want to do is flood the server with a few specific ships in the case of "just a few rentals" and trying to add many rentals to that many accounts is a prohibitive amount of work.

Right? There is something oddly satisfying about getting a unique number in an ocean of uniformity and being like, "This is my bounty account. There are many like it, but this one is mine".

There are far more ships in-game that are tech tree or "game-free" (coal, steel, etc...) than there are doubloon premiums.

Correct! Part of streamlining the event to make it possible on other servers was to have all volunteers use their own accounts. However, since it was the press-account name that told people who was a bounty and who was not a bounty in previous events, we needed a way to show it, so we made markers! This fixed several long-term problems the bounty event had:

Distributing hundreds of press accounts is very time consuming


"Policing" the press account users was tough since they had to be matched up against their user if they broke rules (time)


Distributing rewards for participation had to be done manually after the event was over (time)


Players could not track their progress in real-time and had to "count" the number of battles they played themselves


Teammates often considered the press accounts to be "bots" and saw them as a liability to have on their team

Now, a ...

Careful. There's no need to be insulting. Make your points without it.

The auction is a temporary opportunity for 375 people out of hundreds of thousands across the globe to have access to ithe superships 3 months before they are fully available.

Sorry, but that's not enough to say that our statement is false somehow. The rule is that you must have 3 Tier 10's researched or owned, the auction is an exception. We are allowed to make exceptions.

You'll have to help me out with what point you're trying to make.

Captains!

They're here and off NDA! Superships Admiral Ushakov and Sekiryu are about to land in the Lighthouse auction and we want to show you how they work! The massive Ushakov is the supership in the Soviet Battleship line and boats a massive 135k hitpoints on top of the Kremlin's heavy armor scheme, but takes huge hits to mobility and agility as a trade-off. Sekiryu boasts tactical Rocket and Torpedo-armed jets, but maintains the very fragile style of IJN CV planes present on it's predecessor, the Hakuryu.

Which playstyle suits you best? How do you think these two monster Superships will stack up against the more familiar supers? Join Boggzy and Ahskance and find out on the NA Community Stream!

Early access is part of the way a free-to-play game is monetized. It is purely optional and does not prevent anyone from acquiring the content at some point. The Lighthouse Auction for Superships is for credits anyway - which is not a real monetization method. It's just something for folks to spend their mountains of credits on.

Of all the ways to monetize, early access has to be one of the most reasonable due to it being voluntary and non-exclusive.

You're absolutely right. I actually thought this was a great suggestion for "how do I play this well".
