I know this is asked every time X ship shows up, but every time the answer seems to be different. 

 

How long will the Atlanta be in the store? And the 'Bama and Lo Yang? 

I want to pick up the Atlanta for sure, but have to wait. Pay periods are my best friend and worst enemy. 

 

Anybody know?

I don't know.

But I do know that it is on sale with some discount and you should grab it. Last time it was on sale with some [edited] bundle you don't need/want with a higher price.

I got mine last year with dubs from Santa crates. She was also 35% off in the tech tree. Great deal! Loads of fun.

There are better prems at tier VIII than Kii @LancerUlysses. For me, those guns are just too inconsistent to be viable. If you have the doubloons and really want to spend them there are better ships to spend it on. GL HF

 

Seems like you have most prems though lol

You don't get Atlanta for min/max reasons.  You get it because the guns are hilarious, and their effect on opposing captions is even more hilarious.  Short answer is Atlanta is more fun than a barrel of monkeys, even if it is no more sturdy than an aluminum beer can....

Of course, if you're the type of player where min/max and stats are much more important than sheer fun, or fun is not allowed in your playstyle, move along.  Buy something else than the garbage that you think Atlanta is. Have a nice day gloating over your stats!

I am grinding for the free version of the Atlanta, the Flint. 

Ranked out two seasons in a row, and just need to rank out one more time...

I have the Atlanta the guns have horrible range, they have such a high arc that it’s only hilarious when you hit bbs because everything else can move out of the way, base fire chance is 5%. It used to be my favorite ship then WG tweaked and now it’s a shell of its former self.

I agree with Tiger that it's really not a great ship performance wise.  But the ROF on that thing makes it a pure giggle-fest when you play it.  In game performance - 5.  Giggle factor - 9.5.

I love the video Yuro did on it.

It is fun when you can hide and still do massive amounts of his, it just doesn’t see that many CVs and it’s so underpowered. if they would up the fire chance or give it better range that would be great but I don’t see the point of getting it when you can get the flint.

But I can't get the Flint.  Or at least I don't know how.

But the Atlanta is fun.  Spot an enemy cruiser, line up on them, and hold down the mouse button and pew pewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpew pewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpew.

One of those challenges was to get 3 citadels.  Load up AP in the Atlanta and pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew and you're done.

Be sure to buy the special Atlanta camo that puts a huge bright red target on each side.

It is kind of squishy, yes.  I pretty much vaporized one while I was playing my Molotov Cocktail (speaking of squishy ships) last night.  It's okay at hunting DD's as you can put out so many rounds that all but the grand masters of WASD cannot dodge them.  I have snuck up on enemy cruisers who were looking the other way.  You can take out some cruisers before they can rotate their guns.  But if they're waiting on you, you're pretty much dead.

25 bucks to go pew and.... I’m just saying for the price they are asking it’s not worth it monetarily. To get any good games you have to play it as a DD

Don't think I paid that much for it, but quite frankly I don't recall exactly when I did pick it up.  But yeah, for $25 it's not a good deal.  For that price, there are far better performing botes that will bring you more XP and credits.  Other ships are probably better captain trainers as well.  But sometimes I just don't want to care about those.  In those cases I have a few gigglebotes I play.  The Smith is one.  It was cheap and at T2 (with a 10s torp reload) it's a hoot.  But yeah, if training a captain or grinding XP are what you want, the Atlanta is not a good ship for it.  I slapped in a 3 point recruit.  I think that one is up to 6 points now.  But that took a while.  And I don't exactly play it a lot.  It is situational.  But it is one of my gigglebotes.
