Nice quickie review.

Unfortunately; NOT a fan of Tier 10 battles. Don’t like them; don’t understand the why so many like to play them.

Unlikely to play Cleveland any more after the split; even less likely to go to the top of that branch.

@NoZoupForYou are you allowed to tell us the current AA rating, or not yet?

Accord to the Aslain's Extended Tech Tree, the AA rating is 96 STOCK. So... yeah... This thing is going to be a pain in the [edited].

American Mino with 4 sec reload instead of 3 and HE, so you can burn people to the water line.  Or better put Atlanta on Steroids...

It's going to be hard to have a proper AA build with CE and IFHE being pretty much mandatory.

Yes and no. She has slightly higher values on her 6km and 2km AA and the 5km AA has about 30 more points. She's not significantly stronger, but it's notable.

Did calulations, couldnt find any 20mm oerlikon mounts on her so please correct me if im missing it. But so far historically this would be ehat she gets. (Note no other ship in game has her main battery DP guns so i matched it to minotaur and took away some DPS since its kinda unknown).

Minotaur:

- 152mm/50 mk XXVl

5x2 - 118 dps ~ dps per barrel = 11.8

- 76.2mm/70 mk Vl

8x2 - 315 dps ~ dps ber barrel 19.7

- 20mm oerlikon mk V 

10x2 - 61 dps ~ dps per barrel 3.05

 

Des Moines:

(using DM's 76.2 mm guns same as worcesters)

- 76.2mm/50 mk 33 

10x2 - 279 dps ~ dps per barrel 13.95

 

worcester:

- 47 mk16 DP 

6x2 - 120 dps ~ dps per barrel 10

- 3"/50 (76.2mm/50) mk33

11x2 - 292.95 dps ~ dps per barrel 13.95

- 3"/50 (76.2mm/50) mk 34

2x1 (going by mk33 version) 27.9 dps ~ dps per barrel 13.95

edit i think i found the 20mm's

-12x1? 20mm oerlikon mk V? 

36.6 dps ~ dps per barrel 3.05

as you see mino has the better guns but worcester has a crap ton of those 76.2mm

yeah, you don't need MFCAA for Worcester, because you will get DFAA, which will boost your 152mm AA by 3x, on top of manual target selection, which already does 1.5x... I think it was 1.5x or 1.25x

I think it depends on the carrier rework and how prevalent high tier CVs become  - AP bombs will very reliably delete USN CAs when DFAA is down.  Worcester looks like it has enough deck armor to arm AP as well.

Oh it will. But even with defaa down i doubt you will approach this cl 90% of its aa range is from 6-8km and that aa hurts

yawn I give this ship thumbs down your in a T10 ship's , its only good at punishing teams that are aggressive and don't spin in circles  on the other side of the map.  I mean those arcs are [edited]awful trying to nail anything but BB's at 10 km plus range is going to suck. I can see this be good for ranked but that's about it.

Nice succinct preview, Zoup, I'm definitely looking forward to the line split and seeing what I can do with the Worcester.
