If you still have to grind them ofc. Cruisers can be very awesome and are the most versantile class in the game. I'm just unlucky with them but they are my guilty pleasure.

I just finish unlocking my last none CV T10, the Moskva. The D.Dom was a nice experience and since I had a 19 point captain for the Moskva she keep hers.

I simply cannot make my Moskva work.  For some ships, I feel like my low stats aren't really on me, I'm getting poor luck with teams.  Moskva isn't one of those, my poor performance in the thing is on me.  I just can't make it work.

Better respec that Donskoi captain for Moskva.  The same skills don't translate from one to the other.

I will concur with the thread's title regarding come cruisers. However, the Cleveland simply rocks at its tier spread. Conversely, my New Orleans seems to get taken out in less than two minutes in most of the games I play with it, which are almost always tier X matches. While the Cleveland up-tiers to VIII well, the New Orleans barely holds its own when it's top tier itself, never mind X. The Atago is oftentimes up-tiered too but can work well versus tier X ships due to its decent torpedoes.

I have re-discovered my love for Cruisers over recent weeks.I kinda like the challenges they provide and just have to enjoy the some days chicken and some days feathers results.

The NO wasn't a pleasure to play through but neither was she very bad. She suffer from the T8 cruiser curse. You are more often up against higher tier cruisers/BB that can severly damage you but you have no heal. If you are top tier her AP shreds other cruisers. The Baltimore on the other side is good. Better AA if needed, better guns, heal and radar. For me it was the hardest gap to overcome in the cruisers lines.

Exact. I find BB/DD play getting stale over the time. Cruisers have enough diversity from their different techtrees and of your options what to do in a match. Sometimes I feel they are like the clerics in D&D. Everyone wants to play the fighters/mages/rouges but it's hard to get stuff done without a good support. My biggest problemn is that I play too often to aggresive with my cruisers. That can be rewarding. But also a very fast a trip back to the port. While I play BB modt of the time the number of CA/CL games are growing.

You're allowed to put captains on your ships, you know. :Smile_trollface:

Only four of them are without a captain, the others are either premiums or their captain is in a premium ship :Smile_child:

Have to say, the tier 10 cruisers are the beasts of the line, every one is a joy to play (although do not have DM yet, painfully grinding NO).

I know that, man. It's just odd to see so MANY ships without a captain. I mean, whoa.

The gameplay will improve with the Baltimore. The DM competes with the Hindenburg for best T10 cruiser IMHO. Chasing DD with 46 seconds radar get's never old.

Thank you for the encouragement, NO is the worst ship/tier I have experienced for all the lines and will just have to endure for the prize that is the DM( at the end)

But the Moskva isnt a cruiser; its the Russian's attempt to build a ship version of their ballistic missile.

I have been grinding through the NO too. It's rough. I've had rounds where I've been deleted within 2 minutes of the start of the round. It doesn't even bother me anymore. It seems like you have to cruise out there to detect ships but as soon as you are detected, pop radar, shoot at the DD and run wiggling and wagging the whole time to avoid being hit. The AP on the NO is amazing when a cruiser shows its broadside.

The good news is I only have 30,000XP to go to get the Baltimore. The bad news is I have 30,000XP to go to get the Baltimore. :cap_yes:

Same.  I have atrocious stats in my fujin, but good stats in my kamikaze.  Literally the same god damn ship.

I've gone back to primarily playing Cruisers after going back and forth between CAs and BBs. Cruisers are a lot more fun to play than BBs plus they're much more versatile. (though I have on a few occasions, run AA escort with Alabama)

Some mid to high tier Cruisers I do very well driving, (Graf Spee, Fiji, Atago, Hindenberg) while others I cant seem to do very well with. (Mikhail Kutuzov, Charles Martel, Neptune, and Des Moines) It aint that those last 4 are poor ships, far from it! I just cant seem to get in the groove with them.
