Looks like soon usa cruiser line will split. I have just enough xp in Baltimore to research Des Moines. If worth researching and buying it now?

If i have des moines will i also get teir 10 ca in second line?

If I have baltimore will I get tier 9 ca in second line? Will the ca in second line have same amount of xp as i have on Baltimore right now?

I doubt you'll get the Tier X USN CL for free just by having Des Moines' on hand.

 

When the RU DD Line Split happened, I already had Khabarovsk, but Grozovoi was not handed out to me.  I still had to grind to the Groz.  What you do get are the revamped ships that you have already.

I had Tier VII Kiev and got the VIII version when the change went live.

I had Tier V Gnevny and got the VI version.

I had Tier VI Ognevoi and got the VIII version.

Etc.

 

As for going for DM, that depends.  Did you enjoy Baltimore and found out how to make her work?  Then DM is better in that same function.  The problem many will have with DM is that she's completely unlike the more traditional ranged spammers like Zao, Hindenburg, Moskva, Roon, etc.  You try to play long range spam like those other Tier X Cruisers with DM, you're going to have a bad day.

Balti is also tankier than the DM, so if you feel like the Balti is squishy then you may not enjoy the DM.

^^ This.

I don't have the DM to compare with, but the Baltimore does seem fairly resistant to taking big-number citadel hits.  The Baltimore can take a licking.

a simple search in the forum would already gave the answer to this question.

or simply go to the respected sub forum USN cruiser and you will see people had discussed about this over and over which also gave you the depth of info of educated guesses based on the last split.

Baltimore doesn't have a citadel through its bow, the Des Moines does. That is something to keep in mind.
