    T8 cruisers how do you rate them

    I tell you one thing, I have been really trying to make the Atago work and its been a very frustrating experience. I do OK when downtiered but get crushed when uptiered. I really really feel like cannon fodder for BBs. WG should try and do somethign for T8 cruisers, its so difficult to compete against uptiered ships. At this point I dont feel like I want to ever play a T8 cruiser again; better off sticking to T7

    T8 MM is Broken and everyone refuses to believe me

    Personally as someone who plays the Atago and gets regularly uptiered to T10 games (maybe like every 4/5 games), I have found it soul crushing to be the lowest tier ship and one that has a citadel a mile long. I have no choice but to hang back and snipe at BBs looking to start fires. Rarely have I had an effect on the game to actually win it for the team. The Atago is a fine ship but Tier X ships feel so much stronger. I can't say I feel the same being in a Tier VI ship against a Tier VIII, its like some of the Tier X's should be promoted even higher to Tier XI or XII. Also, there seems to be so many more gimmicks at Tier X than lower tiers: lots of radar, hydro on more ships, spotting planes, ships more maneuverable, speed boosts, main armament boosts, HEALS!! SUPER HEALS!!! And then there's the never ending power creep. Frankly I'm sorry I bought the Atago. If I was the top tier more often or if I had a faster reload rate than 16 seconds I might feel different.

    First game in the Mass.

    My first day of playing her. Not as good as the players above but you may notice I caused flooding

    I think I know what captain skill is next for me = thanks!

    New Love for Yugumo

    Somewhere on this forum some players were advocating for dropping smoke and going with the Torpedo Reload Module instead. Admittedly letting go of the safety blanket that is smoke was tough for me but the arguments against it with all these radar ships in the game made some sense. So I gave it a go and am having a blast. You really have to watch your distance to radar cruisers but its awesome. I'm not sure what the shimmy is like but being able to cut loose that many torps in a matter of seconds is addictive. I also just got the torpedo rearmament reload captain skill (tier 3) and thats nice too. Thinking about whether I want to add torpedo acceleration. It would reduce the 12km range down quite a bit. Any thoughts on what torp combo and captain skills are best for the Yugumo? The below game is the most damage I have been able to do so far. Still lost. Most of that damage was against BBs who really had it in for me when I was spotted

    What a Gallant can do.

    Not quite as good as the OP but not a bad game if I say so myself. I only have a 6 point capt so far. Love those single fire torps

    Perth appreciation thread.

    I just got her tonight and love her. Sure shes not a Belfast but you can do well in this ship. Lets face it the range is not good but her guns have a dcent trajectory; at max range I can actually hit stuff unlike the Atlanta. My only wish was that her cool down time for smoke was less. After getting a 19 point captain in the Belfast, that takes a bit of getting used to. I love that she has decent torps which gives you that last stand capability against bigger ships and that she has a fairly low detect ability when firing in smoke (4.? and 2 km assured detectbility. Thats better than the Belfast.)
  9. Is it true that the new line of RN DDs is not going to have single fire torp capability? If so I think WG are making a mistake, this is one of the unique features of RN ships that I really like. It allows one to engage multiple targets and to really hammer BB captains who are asleep at the wheel. I really hope WG reverse their stance on this

    Gallant love megathread.

    I played her and didnt like her. Then I tried again several months later and now I love her. Not sure why. I think my overall DDs skills went up but I also seemed to crack how to use the single fire torps to great effect. They are fun to use. I do think its a mistake that WG is not making the new RN DD line have the single fire torps. It really is a unique feature and one that would make me research that line.
