A few months ago I bought Indy with doubloons I got from the save the Texas fundraiser last year. I bough her because I like the Pensacola and was afraid they would make her worse after the split. Except for some minor stat changes, Indianapolis plays very similar to Pensacola so I figured she was a good ship to pick up for nostalgia. Now they have a campaign to earn her; talk about irony.  Oh well, at least she got buffed and I’ll get a mission to earn crates so it’s still a gain.

If you already have it, they should give you boo-coo credits.

There's missions to get extra american collection containers through using the indi. So hopefully a not horrible chance to get a ship mission from the extra containers gained. Keep your chin up and ship on.

Yeah, AVR does have a good one but I am partial and biased to the quote in mine.  :Smile-_tongue:

With the New Orleans at Tier 7 now, there's really no reason to buy the Indianapolis. It's simply a worse ship im every way but gains Radar it can barely use to any great effect.

War Gaming has done everything possible to make her good without raising her reload speed despite it being her key reason for her situation outside of her incredibly easy to hit citadel.

Big deal. Some of us bought it with $/doubloons. I was looking forward to the USN split; now I'm just getting shafted left and right. Between this, cruiser commander retraining (even with the 190k), 2.3 million Cleve XP out the window having to use free XP for the upgrades, a bunch of useless captains...if these are rewards/compensation I don't need it.

Indy was good when released because she had radar and a decent detect...but more or less she got majorly power creeped and then Shinyhorse came out and she flat out became garbage.

I bought mine with cash.

It's a nice cruiser than can delete the heck out of Atlanta's in a hurry (2 salvoes at close range).

And 190K will train that 8 point Cleveland captain up to 11 points with some to spare.  I'm taking the 6 points, leaving 2 open, and seeing how far I can go with stock hull on it before kicking in the Capt XP.

I only had a 10 pointer on my Cleveland anyway.  The 14 pointers were on the New Orleans.

In my Alt account, I went from a Congratulatory New Orleans to a Frosty Fir Tree Baltimore (no perm camo).  I'm a little miffed at the loss of a T8 camo...  but I got a bottom hull, low point Cleveland.

I guess my biggest complaint is that I lost the second turrets on the Cleveland, New Orleans, and Baltimore.  Before, I could swap faster turning with faster reload... between battles..  Not anymore.

....

But as far as the Indianapolis being given away...  Whatever.  More power to them.
