they really need a reload buff. Like someone stated earlier you can damage a dd heavily but they can pump shots into you while you are sitting there waiting and waiting and waiting for the next reload. Hell my Georgia shoots faster. The smoke i like but you have to plan when to use it. because i have been hit plenty in it. you have to pop smoke before you are being shot at by 3 ships then turn tail and get out there and pop up somewhere else. Know when to use AP. Man you can mess up cruisers that are showing broadside bad with ap. but that reload kills you every time. just something i have noticed while playing my trento but hey i am just an average player. so take that advice with a grain of salt. best of luck all.
