Played them in test awhile back and liked it enough to start the grind.  Up to the Z23 at T8 really liking the play.  The 150's are just what the doc ordered.  6 cits on an Atlanta last game with AP..  He never had a chance on me even having me spotted.  Running a 6.2 conceal range with 9.5 torps.. Pretty much shooting fish in a barrel.  I have my troubles in some games..  radar and CV planes spotting me and the like, but in the right game it is a force.  Finally found a ship to break me out of my loooong BB grind. 

 

On a side note, played the De Greasy a few games today that I got from a container awhile back..  that isn't a bad little ship either.  Been good to get back in a groove (for me anyway which means about 50%) after having a funk on me last week.

I semi-rage sold the Gaede

 

Felt like I was commanding a tugboat. 

Gaede was a love hate.  It was "THAT SHIP" in the line you just had to push past.  Every line has one.

The Greasy was a real nice surprise when I got her from a Super Container.  I decked her out, popped in a 10pt capt I had laying around, and she was a blast to play.  I haven't had that much fun in a cruiser in a long time.  Not since back in the day when Cleve ran rampant.  This was like a little Cleve with bossy 9k torps.  lol.

You will love the Z-52 with the hydro module. Don’t want to spoil too much. A solid DD branch, only the T-22 was the rotten egg for me. Got also the De Grasse from a supercontainer. But she feels terrible after I got the Henri IV. T8+ is the part were this line start to shine for me. Even I failed my way up, the baguette boats put me most of the time in terrible teams. Won enough killed by baguette while the game was a loss.

so, you like the DD with lousy conceal, lousy rudder and bad smoke.  :D   good job.    I just got it and   been dreading this boat.   only reason I got it is because I have nice camo for it  :D

I have a 6.2 conceal and a 9.5 torp range.  My smoke may not be the best, but it hides me enough and saves my bacon a lot.  I have better camo than the free one we just got.  I run the 150 guns on her and literally took down an Atlanta with 6 Cits before she could even figure out what was going on.  150's aren't much at the high tier, but figure you got just about Cleve guns running at a fast reload and on a down tier game you can eat cruisers with AP.  HE takes out any DD that comes around even up tier.  IF you don't like this ship you are playing her wrong.   oh..  1 mil gets you the rudder shift upgrade.  just saying.

I liked the tier VIII, but the IX and X seem to be the real gems of the line.

You don't get the 150's anymore, but those fast firing 128's with AP will wreck any DD that gives you a broadside...
