The bleeping Colorado, I am terrible with it and the grind is killing me. I want to the NC so much that I'll deal with it for another 100k XP or so, but UGH! I've read the reviews and watched the youtube 'how to's' but I just can't get a handle on how to be consistently successful with the Colorado. I mean, I get it - it's rather slow but has good armor and good guns and should be a good tanking ship, but I just can't git gud with it! I've tried being agressive, albeit selectively, not YOLOing - those days are behind me (or reserved for when I take the Biz out for a sail ). But I end up getting focused and burnt and sunk fairly quickly. I've tried hanging back and playing the sniping game, but I often end up getting left behind and/or chased down from behind by Gneisenaus and Sharnies. What can I do to make the grind to the NC less painful? Can anyone offer up some advice on how to approach battles with the Colorado? FYI - this is my second attempt at grinding the Coco - I gave up when I was an ultra-noob for the same reasons I'm struggling now, 700+ battles later! EDIT - my Colorado is fully upgraded.
