Cleveland help

ionel2]I started out SO bad that I walked away for a bit and came back. Actually, it was my intention to get on the test server to help the guys, but after I loaded it I couldn't figure out how to get on.Don't let my DDX tactics change how you play the game. With that ship/crew, I can cut down Alsaka, PCL, CA, whatever.... if they make the mistake of letting me get into range![/QUOTE]After seeing you in action I don't doubt it. But my problems go deeper than that. There were a couple matches that I lost that I really shouldn't have. Including one time I was last ship left on my team going up against 2-3dd and 1 cv. I should have won that one, but the dd's ate me for breakfast cuz my spread was so bad I couldn't hit them. Its very sad when you realize a DD half the number of guns half your size can dish out more damage because you're only landing 1-2 hits per salvo even at point blank range.Every once in a while I put in a good performance, but only when my team is doing well, or at least breaking even. Thats when I can hide behind the line and let them keep people away and just lob salvos at people and hope for accuracy by volume. But anytime things go badly, or get a little chaotic, I'm next to useless. And considering how blitz's normally go, that means that  pretty much almost every match in blitz I go down with a whimper.

Its not you, its just the way the game is. My L50s gunners will outperform your L35 gunners regardless of what gun/ship they are on, if they are employed correctly. I've also seen L115 fighters flying T1s shoot down L90s flying T3s. Its the level of the sailor that really counts. Another issue is the auto FCS vs aiming FCS in blitz. With the large number of people using auto its hard to keep up. Also, the high speed of both the ship shooting and the speed of the target ship, the small size of the target ships and the small hobbit map and the relatively low range of the guns all combine to make it a very unfriendly aiming FCS game. This all changes in GB. The longer range and slower ships make this the place to really use aiming to its full effect. I struggled with aiming bad in blitz. It wasn't until I got to GB and had the chance to actually shoot is when I could get better. The final thing about spread is your gunners need to be at least 5 levels above the guns. In BBs make that even more. You'll see a huge improvement if you do.
