I think the Cleveland may be my favorite ship

it was my favourite until one of the captain skills got changed, thus it lost it gun range.

Nice.  I am average in her. Some great games some crap games in her. She can tear the crap out of other cruisers real fast. I notice I get focus fire a lot. Red teams don't like her!

I really disliked it when I was starting out in WOWS.  Now, it is one of my dependable goto ships.  It tanks well when angled correctly, and starts fires and citadels nicely.  She also handles well and the guns feel comfortable.  I will finish the grind to the Des Moines in the next few days, but the Cleveland will always be in my post and frequently going out to sea.

 

NOTE: whenever I see a Cleveland on the other team, it is the ship i try to remove quickly.  People frequently ignore her and she burns them to the ground before they realize the true danger :cap_like:

The Cleveland has a fairly rapid rate of fire, good turret traverse, a 14% chance of setting HE fires (with the commander skill), is reasonably fast and agile, can eat up planes at its tier like nobody's business, and can sit behind islands and lob shells onto an enemy undetected. If it had a a repair party consumable it would be a wonder indeed.

She's a beast at or near her own tier yup.

What were those CV drivers thinking they were going to accomplish by sending planes anywhere near a Cleveland?

I have a secondaries  Skipper in her. Her large secondary battery Makes her pretty unique to play and can really tear up a DD that get's to close.

Back in 2015, the Cleveland had a notorious reputation and was probably one of the best cruisers in the game at the time. Huge range, split citadels, quick turret traverse, better MM, etc. She's been heavily nerfed since then, but the addition of IFHE has made her strong again.

Biggest buff to mid tier cruisers has been the influx of HE spamming BBs, and the Cleveland has benefited from this.

It's over rated as an open water cruiser. Too easy to dodge. If you can get behind an Island though it's worse than the atlanta.

There is a reason she is the most played ship in the game.

Another good game is the amazing Cleveland. I'm not sure the CV players exactly understand what a Cleveland is really good at.

If what I have read is true, she was a tier VIII level ship that was nerfed to fill the Tier VI spot.

it is, it's said that, when the USN CL line split happens, Cleveland will return to her rightful spot at T8, and be how she was before most of her nerfs to fit her at T6, but you know, grain of salt

Ahh...Yes. The Cleveland the ship that was so OP they had to nerf her in Closed Beta after the first Open Weekend...Yet still she is somehow still the most fun and awesome to play.

(if the gif makes no sense Haru-Haru with her coat on is the old unerfed Cleveland, when it's taken off what her nerfed version was expected to be like, when back on with 'Shazam' is how she actually is..awesome)
