...last night I saw the thing most players at these tiers ought to be really concerned about. A division of THREE St Louis-class cruisers. They had their focus-fire act sorted out very nicely, thank you. Holy moley, talk about OP! Put them within range of each other and I think they'd give the new Worcester a run for its money. 

The only cure for this thing seems to be to have enough battleships around to take them out or thin them down at long range to the point where they become manageable. But in the meantime they're going to light a LOT of fires, and the concentrated damage is just going to wash all over smaller ships. Damn, I have never evaporated from full health to nothing so quickly outside of massive Okt Rev/Nikolai alpha strikes or detonations.

Sounds like WoT.  There used to be this little American low tier TD that the seal clubbers would take out in platoons all the time.  WG eventually converted into a tier 1 SPG -- much to the horror of all the clubbers.

Any wakatake player worth his salt would've had a field day with that div. :) 

 

You should fear the triple bogatyr div more :)

I smacked a team around with Boggie last night to make myself feel better. It was quite satisfying.

Need to revisit St. Louis and Bogatyr again.   Been many thousands of games since I moved past.    They were sold and long-gone from the port.   Maybe buy and play again?

The T18 had near impenetrable front armor for its tier and an amazing gun with good side to side movement for a TD. I miss the old version of it. Good times.

Believe it or not, I smacked two St. Louis around with the vaunted Varyag last night, first trip out in it, 31k damage...not sure why everyone hating on this ship, speed was a decent 24knots, 6 guns, though hard to get all on target, decent maneuver....armor was okay.

For as slow as they are the St Louis is amazingly hard to torpedo. The Boatyr is a beast but it is much more a glass cannon than the St Louis which is extremely are to penetrate with cruiser guns.

Igor will always be in my port.  FXP'd past Bogie, which may have been a mistake.  Kolberg is a good clubber, too.  In a 2-div I've had some memorable dances with BBs.

ahh the triple spammer div....I think I saw that same div a few weeks ago.

St Louis, atlanta, minotaur....soon to be the worcester.

Although the best I saw was a double atlanta along with a HE spammer, they were horrible.

Kinda rough for the lower tier though.

I kept both of them and still play them a bit when I want a break from high tier games.  They’re both a blast, especially Bog with AFT and the 130s.
