So what is going to be the big "I have to play it" ship here early on with the update? IMO we will see a wave of T6 Pensacola right off as people play their 1 game to earn the 190K Capt XP. I suspect after that it will be pretty even between T8 Cleveland and T9 Buffalo. People trying out NO and Baltimore at their new tiers will be a bit behind that. I think it is safe to say there will be a LOT of US Cruisers flooding MM in the coming days. LOL

I am not a huge Cleveland fan and think the move to T8 makes it worse so for me the Buffalo is the big one I want to try. I will be more interested in NO and Baltimore too. Also, got to see this new "beast" and "terror" at T6 in the Pepsi the experts keep telling us about (:Smile_facepalm:). I will try Cleveland just to see but probably not going to be a big fav of mine.

I definitely will be playing a lot of BB as well as there will be a LOT of juicy targets for sure LOL.

Thoughts...?

I hadn't heard Kronstadt was in 7.5?

"With the release of Update 0.7.5, the Soviet Tier IX cruiser Kronshtadt will be available for purchase in the game client for 750,000 Free XP."

I will probably Dallas as soon as I can.  I just like the CL's.

Not until 0.7.6

The only USN CL released in 0.7.5  is Cleveland. The rest are CAs.

Pensacola - seems far fetched, but you must play one match in it to get the 190,000 CO experience.

Other than that, agree with Buffalo being the number one.

Don't tell me there were people grinding through the Omaha in a day thinking they would get the Dallas the next morning? :Smile_facepalm:

Or are they the people who panicked when they realised this was their last chance to get the Cleveland? :Smile_teethhappy:

Then again, with the "Say Hello to Summer" thing coming to an end tomorrow, it was a good opportunity to pile that little extra XP on their Omahas for 0.7.6; I can hardly blame them.

I hadn't realized Kronstadt was being released too. I know the price was set and all but thought it was still a ways off. It makes me wonder about it as there is so little fanfare on this from WG. I mean it is the next 750K FXP ship, which should be a huge deal, and it is coming in rather silently along with the much anticipated US Cruiser split (part 1 anyway). Musashi coming in was highly publicized and was a big deal, and not just because MO was leaving, but the arrival of Kronstadt is kind of being kept low key. Why? Hope it isn't a big old Russian turd. :Smile_sad:

Only if the Cleveland's can actually get in range to hit them.

I would guess the new ships of course, but lots of tier 8's since the new campaign is starting as well.

For me, I finally got off my butt and got Cleveland yesterday.  So, I'll probably be alternating between new Pepsi and Cleve for a while.

There's a part of me that wants to take my new Cleveland naked into Ranked, to prove a point.

On the other hand, I had a good run last night, getting my first star at Rank 14, and because that's not an irrevocable rank I really don't want to screw it up by taking a stock ship with a less-than-optimal captain. It wouldn't be fair on the other six guys.

Then again... I want to see if it's possible to assemble a ranked side that is ALL CLEVELAND. Or won't the MM let that happen?
