  2. Hello folks, since there seems to be a demand for this kind of thing I figured I'd copy and paste the list of S tier ships from the 101 guide to a separate post. So here are all currently existing S tier ships (list will be updated if new ships are added). Please feel free to post screenshots in the comments with stats of S tier ships if you have them! - edit - I've also added the A tier ships. Please let me know if I missed any. N.B. the (x2) means that there is an A tier version of that ship available from both research and the shipyard. They have the same name and tier, but they are in fact different ships. The research version is always better. A tiers S tiers

  4. I've written a beginners guide, it contains almost everything that you need to know: https://www.navyfieldmobile.com/index.php?/topic/4314-navy-field-mobile-101-a-beginners-guide-to-the-ins-and-outs-of-nfm/
  5. Hi there, We recommend to play Operation, Campaign first to gather some resources. Enjoy your sailing!
  6. Umm, yeah. As the title says, I am pretty frickin new here. Still waiting for the game to download... Any tips?
  7. Hello Mussashi, You have lost your captain? I could perhaps help you with that... What is the exact name of the lost captain and of your new profile? Your old captain can be restored to your new profile. I hope I have understood your problem correctly, I don't speak Spanish...
  8. Mi cuenta mussashi 23, de flota chile navy no la puedo recuperar, cambie de celular y me carga solo la Ppi de fllta Armada chile. No se que hacer pude mal el dedo. Ayuda MI CUENTA ERA AVANZADA
  9. need to know
  10. anyone from jedi still play NF? got some questions lol
  11. Thank you for the report. We will fix it on next patch.
  12. There seems to be an error with the first gun upgrade of the B Tier H39, building the upgrade shows no change in stats as shown in the screenshot below
  13. To my knowledge, if you have your profile stored to Google, if you sign in on a new device it should load your profile to that device. That said, you should sign in before playing on your new device, I think.
  14. Hi Neuner, can you inform me how to get this working without losing any gold or resources already stored? Until today i could not get it working to have this game (Android version) working on PC Android simulator, Android phone and Android tablet. It would make the experience and build up much intense and easier for me if i can switch systems whenever i like this and keep on playing it using the same settings and resources gathered. Thanks in advance.
  15. I will suggest this to the developers. Thanks for your imput
  16. Dear devs I would respectfully ask for a change in the ability of planes so they cant occupy the battlefield to win a game. When I was in the USAF we could bond the crap out of something but we needed surface forces to occupy. When you get to just 2 players on the battlefield the carrier is untouchable. If you chase him he wins by plane occupation if you dont he wins cause you didnt sink him. ????????? Dont get it?????
  17. Dear devs Its getting increasingly difficult to enjoy this game due to your past updates. I've been along time player and I know you do care about this product. My main concern is the nukes but I'm afraid that is a done deal. I would probably not mind so much if I understood the reasoning behind it. No ship was able to launch a nuke in ww2 which used to be the historical basis of the game which I liked. Now instead of battling it out we just nuked for points. If there was a defense u could get maybe that would help. But right now it's just a big stick in a little pond that big player which I am one use to clobber people. I have seen new players recently come in for a few weeks and say this is crap and leave to world of warships. Hope you can figure it out. Thanksthank

  19. Hola! Cual es el problema? Puedo intentar ayudarte, pero no hablo espanol (uso google translate para responderte...)
  20. esta pegado el juego no puedo avanzar lo pueden solucionar?
  21. The guns on the A tier california are often times not able to sink destroyers because of how week they are. They do almost no dmg to other bbs unless a crit happens and that rare enough. 1920dmg for the iowas strongest gun with the California sitting at 1780, this wouldnt be a problem if the guns weren't worse in every way. The guns have worse range, dmg and reload. And the most dmg I've gotten out 9f them was 16387. The total yield of dmg potential should be in the 23thousands but since no splash comes off of it no dmg is done. Either add same range or better or at least give it a bigger splash, otherwise this ship is a waste of gold.
  22. Another excellent post, well done! Did you mention the importance of shooting down enemy scouts? ;p (but really, it turns a game!) There's another benefit to shooting the planes: usually a support ship (aaw + asw + repair = ultimate support ship) isn't that good as an offensive ship, so it can be tricky to score any damage - and no damage is no rewards! But shooting down planes counts as damage done as well. I vetted the best part of the Jules Verne this way. Basically, shoot the planes!
  23. A cunning plan for surviving in Great Battle Dear captain, you have played and dominated Online Experts and think of trying your skills in Great Battle. Ideally you have a couple of nice DDs and CLs, built the level 41 CA or found a C tier DD/CL/CA at the lottery and built it. This Plan is for you. Note 1: You don’t need a BB/CV/SS. Note 2: You will meet A & S tier BBs that seem impervious to any damage (hulls into the 60 thousands) and put out 20-30k+ broadsides at great ranges (2800 I consider short, 3000 average and 3300 long range) Note 3: High tier CVs are fast, have lots of planes and can kill the high tier BBs with 2-3 squads of torp bombers. They also have great hulls and many short range guns for protection Note 4: High tier SSs are fast (submerged close to 30kn normal, 40kn overheat) with many torp tubes (10-12) shooting 6-8k damage torps. Also many have quite powerful deck guns, scouts and some even bombers Note 5: Scared yet? S tier BBs can call a nuke strike every 5 mins and S CVs airstrike every 4 minutes Note 6: A good player with a DD/CL/CA can be as useful as any of the above, turn the tides of battle and win. So, how do you win a battle where you can be squashed like a bug? 1. Pick your ship role(s). A DD/CL/CA can be one or more of the following: ASW (Anti Submarine Warfare), AAW (Anti-Aircraft Weapon), repairship or minelayer. Might also have quite good guns (some of the higher tiers put out damages comparable to BBs) 2. At the beginning of battle you have some seconds that enemies are visible. Check their line-up, note the BBs, CVs and SSs 3. Check your own side BBs, CVs and SSs 4. Depending on your role, choose your strategy. In general escort a BB or CV and provide your services 5. Be smart. Survive. Speed is your ally, rudder your friend. Whenever you feel threatened run. Always swerve your rudder; hard. Make them miss, respect a battleship’s space – close in and you’ll be squashed. 6. The more successful you are at protecting your allies, the better the chances at winning 7. Ideally your ship should serve 2 or more of the roles below ASW ASW weapons are the hedgehogs, torpedoes and mines. Note that subs can deep dive and avoid the ASW weapon (HHs will explode harmlessly, torps will sail past, mines will stay there – deep dived subs will have to crawl away at 3kns. Additionally note that mines are invisible to subs). BBs are particularly vulnerable to subs, they are (the majority) slow, (most) lack any defences vs a submerged sub and cannot detect submerged subs (few have a small sonar that is generally useless). As an ASW escort you need to (in order of priority): 1. keep track of subs. Keep them in sonar range so they are visible 2. Block their path to your allies 3. Wear them out with HHs and torps. If they deep dive fast enough to avoid your weapons try to supress them. If they spend their time in deep dive they are not threatening your allies and will eventually run out of oxy. No need to take unnecessary risks by going too close If there are no major surface threats you can actively hunt enemy subs or aid an allied sub duelling another (sub duels often happen between the enemy-allied lines and closing in to the enemy line is not wise) AAW Killing scouts. Kill the enemy scouts. Once more: kill the enemy scouts. BBs fire well beyond their visual range, without scouts they are blind – your level 1 DD can win a battle just by keeping your allies invisible to the enemy. Other than scouts; move between enemy bombers and their target, they’ll have to either go round you to the other side (you can too by sailing a much smaller distance), over you (you’ll kill several or all of them before reaching their target), switch target to someone else or switch their target to you (torp bombers are quite easy to evade, dive bombers will have to go directly above you) Finally fighters: many times you will see allied and enemy fighters locked in combat; note that your AA fire can and will shoot down allied planes as well so be careful and judge the situation. If the enemy fighters chase allied bombers just fire at them, the bombers are doomed anyway Repairship Pretty straight forward. Just escort a BB and repair it. Repair other allies when you get the chance and feel free to change the ship you escort if needed. Note that repair line is visible through fog of war, so disengage (by long press of repair button) when not needed Minelayer If you are a dedicated minelayer then choose an area to rig: in front of your allied CVs if any, a choke point between islands or just an area close to centre (has to be inside the occupy zone appearing at 5 mins) work best If not a dedicated minelayer just drop mines as you go. The more the better. If you double back or encounter other allied mines try to group them together or make long strings. A particularly tricky tactic (but immensely satisfying when it works) is to sail over a sub and drop mines directly on top of it. This usually results in the immediate destruction of the sub (or you if you don't get it right). You will need the fastest and smallest ship for this - DDs and the small, premium CLs (Texas, Tiger, Dhonburi, Bayern and Gamelin) work best for this. Running parallel to sub and somewhat behind it, hit OH speed and aim just ahead of it, at the last moment turn hard towards it and drop your load - practice makes perfect. Minesweeper Your DD/CL can also detect enemy mines (the only classes that can). Help allies to navigate through enemy minefields. Hedgehogs can also destroy enemy mines. Though not very successful may come handy sometime Gunship While not in the roles listed, your ship has guns, use them to take out small ships or add your damage to whatever the heavyweights are shooting at. Here you can use the skills you learned in online beginners and experts. If you get in the unfortunate position where there is an enemy BB but no allies to kill it (BB, CV or SS) try to gang with any survivors and attack it. If there is nothing blocking your path to an enemy CV grab the chance and chase it (you need speed, some good guns with a good range for this, CVs are fast and many pack some nice guns for self protection) Further reading 101 a beginners guide by Ibby. Everything needed to play and enjoy the game for day 1 to advise for experienced players. A must read. Unofficial battle tips by me. Quite dated but valid in many points. Just note that when it was written there was no "research" (only shipyard ships), no minelayers, no Italy, no France, no occupy zone at 5 minutes, no repair skill and no BB/CV had AAW, ASW or sonar Some other advice Tip 1 was you don't need a BB, CV, SS. Building a BB/ CV/ SS early in the game is the wrong thing to do. D & C tier BBs have weak hulls, building them is a waste of resources and will give the wrong impression about BBs. D & C CVs and SSs also have weak hulls but if played well a good hull is an inconvenience not a fatal flaw. While sub-par and weak they can still play their intended roles in gb. Fighters are as strong as on the high tier CVs, bombers some 30-40% weaker. Subs suffer from low torpedo counts (6-8 tubes are typical for D-C tier subs, while B,A & S have 10-12). In addition BBs, CVs and SSs of B tier and higher will need some 10-11 million steel to build and upgrade, with third upgrades needing as much as 3 million steel; a level 12 steel depot is needed for that
  24. DD and CL can see mines, and in theory hedgehogs can destroy mines (although they're really ineffective). You know what would be great? Having all the bloody minefields in raids visible or at least marked...
  25. Thats the minesweaper's task. (DD,CL) If SS was added that ability, they get more OP.
  26. The game is more or less a naval minesweeper... Please add some feature to ss to get a chance against mines...
  27. Hi captains, at first I wanna say thx Ibby for this great guide for NF and for your job as Mod. And as support for your guide you asked for my introduction clip for NF on YouTube....you can see it by the link below.
