Got frustrated playing my Gearing in Ranked, so I decided to revisit an old friend. She only has a 10 point captain these days, but she plays as tough as I remember. The game wasn't easy; I had to work hard and keep my head on a swivel, but the results speak for themselves. The Clemson is still a powerful ship at her tier. It was nice to get a little affirmation that I'm not a complete potato player So, if you're feeling a bit frustrated this weekend, try going back to your roots. The Clemson, the Nicholas, the Farragut are all great ships, even with the CVs lurking about. Try getting reacquainted with an old friend.
....Someone asserted baldly that the Omaha was a POS on the port chat the other day so I said, "Let's you and me test it in the training room," and s/he said "No." ....So for shiggles I did the experiment on my own, because I'm a firm believer that no ship is a POS in the right hands. ....Round 1: since I'm inherently bad w/cruisers I started out easy versus Easy AI with an Omaha against an uptiered bot in a Clemson, which my interlocutor had said was more than a match for an Omaha....killed it, too easy. ....2A/2B: I moved it up to Hard AI against the Clemson and needed two tries this time because again, I'm below avg. w/cruisers and the first time I forgot to kite and use my better range w/my guns after acquiring a visual on the bot. ....3: I made it tougher for me by giving the bot a Nicholas (Hard AI) and smashed him with the kiting tactic first try. ....4A/4B: I went up on the degree of difficulty again and gave the bot a Farragut (Hard AI again) and lost first try, basically because the 127mm rifles on the Farra are not bad against the Omaha's 152mms at distance and I took a torp hit....Second try against the Farra?--killed it with a couple hard hits and a fire and by dodging its torps. note well: a stock T6 Farragut hull has an hp pool of 10,900hp while a stock T5 Nicholas has 12,000hp--I never noticed that before. ....Conclusion: I went to some effort and had a little coop fun with my initial hypothesis, but it was confirmed.
