First, in the 30 second countdown, talk to your three secondary battery crews and ensure they are ready for the upcoming battle.

Next, sail forth into battle all guns blazing.  If you are not doing enough damage you are not close enough.

Finally drink heavily in wardroom celebrating your first blood, CQE and win.

That's certainly one approach to things. However, it requires a thick skin and no fear of getting the cr*p blown out of you in short order.

For "potentially rewarding things that are also very likely to end in your sinking", I prefer sitting in smoke and farming rapidly approaching battleship bots until it's too late, then when the smoke fades, charging between them and trying to torp both. This occasionally works, it works better if you have quite a lot of health left before you charge out, and it works best of all when one or more friendly battleships are there to give the main batteries of at least one of your targets something else to think about.

I have not tried it in Random, and since I just earned the Leander the night before last and am moving my Emerald captain into her, I probably won't ever again.

 

Generally speaking, the Emerald is a ship which requires fine judgement as to how long you can show your side and against whom, in order to get the maximum number of shells on target. Omahas and French low-tier cruisers die very satisfyingly, and battleships are useful damage farms until they notice you, at which point the adequacy of your WASD hacks and shares in Depends compete with each other for primacy.

Warships today's asia stats are down atm, but on RU, NA, and EU it's the worst cruiser by win rate of any tier. And it's been there for months. And it's pretty dammed low by win rate of all classes.

I've had some good games in her, but also a LOT where I'm the 1st sent back to port by a long shot.

I hope that someday WGing pulls it's head out of it's 4th point of contact and reverses the stupid AP only at least for the Emerald it really needs a way to do reliable damage.

Doubt it. They insist on having at least one or two real dogs in most lineups, getting people to spend free xp is  plus to them.

And no amount of offense will solve the issue of taking a cit from a shell that lands 50 yards away....:Smile_teethhappy:
