Any tips/strategies for a beginner playing the UK Cruiser line? I'm currently at the Tier V Emerald and I honestly feel like I just get instadeleted when running into anyone on the enemy team, BB blow me up from far away before I can gap close, DD come out of nowhere and blow me up, my AA seems really inefficient against CV's but I honestly die before having trouble with them most of the time, I've only really had success against other British Cruisers. I never sail in a stright line when I am detected, I change up my speed and which direction I am going constantly but it seems to really only postpone death. I know I'm supposed to stick to my team's BB but it's pretty difficult when I start way ahead of them and am faster than all of them even when at half speed. I do not want to say that the Emerald just sucks because I know the fault lies in my gameplay somewhere but it really feels like it does.
I was reading through the patch notes for update 0.8.6, and in the section which discusses buffs and nerfs for individual ships, I found this little nugget: British cruiser Emerald The armor thickness of the citadel deck has been increased from 25 to 40 mm. By increasing the thickness of the deck armor, we’ve added more protection for the cruiser's citadel deck against penetrations by attack aircraft rockets, 203 mm HE shells, and no-ricochet penetrations by AP shells. I know some people (@LittleWhiteMouse) who might be happy about this. Still, I don't know if this is a big enough buff to actually make Emerald better. Will this actually help the ship, or will it just cause more BB overpens to penetrate and cause more damage? I sure hope it helps Emerald, she has so much going for her (if you ignore the armor).
