Jaeger_14 posted a topic in American CruisersHello All! Long time casual player (been around since just after open beta yet only around 4k battles), but this is my first post on the forums proper. I just managed to grind out the Anchorage event totally yesterday, and have been trying to figure out my new prize. I have grinded the American CA line up to the New Orleans, but I stopped there and have kinda switched back to British CLs since I seem to click with that playstyle more. I WANT to get better with the Anchorage, and by extension the high tier American CAs, however, because I recognize the utility and firepower they can bring into a game. I understand that islands are important, however the angling and visibility gets me every time. I seem to always be too far back and then proceed to eat citadels from the weirdest angles, or I get too close to the island and I am unable to provide any fire support. I wonder if I am maybe getting too close to caps and being prioritized; but I feel like if I sit back any further I become useless. It's totally different from the German CAs and British CLs that I am used to. With the Germans, generally medium range and kiting means you can tank quite a bit, even in open water, and DPM down targets. Especially effective when you have a friend to act as a meat shield. With the British CLs, I feel like I can be aggressive (where I am comfortable), using my stealth, gun arcs, and smoke-hydro to really get into a cap or provide support for my friendly DDs. But with the Americans, it's different, and the New Orleans doesn't really totally prepare you for T8 and upwards in terms of armor and capabilities. Also, I'm a numpty casual and aggressive "I don't know my name but I must kill" kind of person, so there's that. Thank you all in advance!
