I am up to tier 5, almost tier 6.
From the beginning, most community contributes posted videos and commentary about how weak and fragile these cruisers are. They question why WG even released them.
Tier 1, I got 6 citadel in a match...woth practice HE.
Tier 2, range was good, he strong.
Tier 3, airplane and todos?
Tier 4, AP citadel from 10 km? Weak?
Tier 5, bouncing Kongo AP from 7 km?
Starting fires almost every salvo...
And I got high caliber, 113k damage, my first one in months.
Now if a 48% potato can fall in love and do well in these ships, it is obvious that CC'S wanted to hide the secret these ships held...
I say make them walk the plank for their lies....
(Some sarcasm my be present, performance is real though)
