....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.
