The split appears to have gone down without a hitch for me.

I took the Pensacola out into a co-op battle, and the gun rotation does not feel too awful. The arcs look impressively flat compared to base T7 Pensacola guns, though this might be confirmation bias. Because I already have T7 New Orleans, there's no urgency to grind Pensa and I can take her out at leisure.

As for the huge Captain XP bonus, that has so far been spent on realigning my unspecialised 10 point captain to Cleveland (dirt cheap; spent the 200K first), and boosting my 8 point Leander captain to 10 (to let him have Concealment). My Fiji captain is 20K away from his eighth point, so I might grind him in Hermes when I'm not flinging my new Cleveland and my Edinburgh into permanent campaigns, and that'll be fewer elite captain XP I have to throw at him to get him to ten.

As for the Pensacola and New Orleans captains, I'm going to take stock and see what they're like to play as is before I put points on them or assign further skills. And the 8-point Cleveland captain might get ground up to a 10 pointer to let him take IFHE while the 10 pointer takes Concealment for use in T8 ranked next time that comes around.

Glad to know its going smoothly for you.  Gives me hope that when I download the update later my captains and ships will be right where they are supposed to be!!

Seems like someone had a table out for IFHE, and using it on tier 8+ wasn't cost effective...I'd have to find it to verify though.

Not impressed with Pensa, guns hit well, but battleship turret rotation doesn't work for me.

After the old Warspite; nothing seems too slow...

That may be true, but I never bought the Warspite, so never experienced it....the turrets just don't work for me.

Even if they only brought it to Aoba base rotation, it would probably be a decent ship.

IIRC it was 8 inch guns that weren't worth IFHE; with 6 inch it is nearly mandatory at Tier 8.

First game out in Pensie, I ran off a Fubuki, a Nurnberg, and a New Orleans, and burned a Kongo down, then took the cap.  Survived, but we lost.  :etc_swear:

Not a bad bote.  

I'm going to take some time cooking the captains, too.

Pensie is turning out to be a beast in Tier 6 Ops.  We did Killer Whale tonight with a 5(!) man division, three Pensies, and just barely lost the 5th star. 

Now Orleans not as successful in Hermes.  They've changed up the Op.
