Italian Duca D'Aosta - Really Disappointed

Boy do I have buyers remorse. This ship sucks plain and simple. Lackluster guns, extremely slow turret traverse speed, good maneuverability but not enough to dodge those BB salvos which are sure to come cause your made out of paper thin armor. HE shells that couldn't even penetrate an angled CV. The torps are the only thing I like on this ship. 12km range which is great but they are dead slow. Still I have managed to hit a few ships at extreme range.

 

Utterly disappointed with this PREMIUM ships, WG - I will be thinking twice about buying any more premium ships if you turn out crap like this. When I pay my money for a premium ship I expect something unique. This really is a POS.

Maybe it's your playstyle. Did you not watch vids about her? Don't blame WG for ships you can't play in...

I provide this as evidence that the ship is capable of doing extremely well.

Huh, it's almost as if Wargaming was highlighting the various aspects of the ship. 

Almost as if they were warning people that she has strengths and weaknesses...

Almost as if they were saying that the ship isn't for everyone—like any other premium....

Utterly disappointed with the PREMIUM purchase. WG - I will be thinking twice about buy anymore premium ships if you turn out crap ships like this

 

I don't have any issues with it.  Must be how you're playing it.  Well if you don't by anymore, well, that's more for us

I'm not going to blame your playstyle or skill for you hating the ship, I have ships that I perform poorly in as well, simply because I dislike them. However, I will suggest you read/watch reviews on a premium ship before buying it, just to determine whether or not you'll actually enjoy playing the ship.

And maybe it's just the ultra stupid WG game mechanics. Not in the Duca, but was playing my Molotov (which I have a good win rate in, by the way) today, when 2 rounds from an Alabama took all but 2,000 hp from me. That's over 26,000 hp with just 2 rounds. Another 2 rounds from a Geisenau and I was under water. Game over.

I had good angles both instances, but it just doesn't matter. Something has to give and I don't want to hear this "git gud" crap from a bunch of trolls.

I can blame WG all I want - its my opinion.

 

I did watch reviews but I wasn't prepared for this level of mediocrity.  I find her extremely difficult to dish out damage in. How that one guy got 136k damage I'll never know - would be interested to see the states compared to other cruisers in her tier. Anybody got access to that?

I perform well in it, but it is a garbage ship. And Dingbat, good for you. That is the height of dumb arguments providing a single screen shot that is somehow supposed to prove this ship isn't garbage. Maybe you just got lucky with enemy potatoes?

 

I am a good cruiser player, and this ship is horrible. I submitted a ticket to try and get a refund it is that bad.

136k damage: I suspect this level of damage is for 0.001% of people who sail her

I've been trying really hard to like this ship since it was my friend's b-day gift to me. And it's objectively not a terrible ship or even mediocre. It's just not the best ship for me, so I totally understand the sentiment (I understand your opinion on buyer's remorse from other things). But, for the life of me, I can't figure out how to make it click at my skill level.

 

It's just like...

A not OP premium? Yes please WG, more of these.

 

Stop complaining that this ship isn't p2w. People are doing fine, but no, it's not the Belfast.

 

54% WR is within reason, behind the Leander and Graf Spee, but ahead of everything else.

Going to fall on the  classic "its the player not the ship's fault" line here. If you were smart, you should've done your research and watched videos that I-chase, NoZoupforyou and Noster put out on upcoming premium ships. These guys do a pretty good job giving overviews for the ships and will even make update videos if things change on the ship!:read_fish:

I don't want it to be p2w. I want it to be competitive. And landing 6 penetrations of IFHE for 600hp damage on a non-saturated target is not competitive.

Currently the ONLY Italian ship.  More will follow.

Grinding your captains now will give you a head start later.

...

And with the Spotter mod 1, this thing is fantastic.

Like I said. I couldnt get HE shells to score damage on an angles CV. Thats crap

 

Angles don't matter for HE. You either weren't hitting him, or were hitting an armor belt for shatters.

 

What CV was it?

Independence. I've never had shells not do damage to a CV. This was a first

I think I had 56 shell hits for like 12k in damage. Wish I had screen shotted it. I was aghast at how little damage I had done

So, the Independence has a 16mm torpedo bulge on top of the 13mm of hangar armor. And if you hit the waterline after getting past the bulge, you'd hit the 127mm citadel belt, which you'd never pierce with HE.

 

That could do it :read_fish:

 

Other than that, yeah, I got nothing

like any other premium? really?

 

Of course every ship has its strength and weakness. Just like higher tier US CVs that have ridiculous weaknesses when compared to IJN CVs. You must admit that some ships have more strengths than others. 

But I would agree with someone elses comments that it would be nice if Premium ships were not too OP.

No, I simply meant that there are premiums that don't fit some's playstyles. Like the Atlanta, for example.
