Good-bye my beloved St. Louis.  I always enjoyed you.  You're a tough little cruiser that thinks your're a Battleship and I will miss you.  You were a great way to relax and just have fun without resorting to the frag-fest. death-matches of PVE.  It's nothing you've done and its not your fault.  I just can't take low tier game play anymore.           

It's        just       tooooooo       stupid.

Like tonight.  We were tooling around together on Great Race, 10 minutes or so in, racking up about 38K damage (while taking very little), when all of a sudden someone on the ship starts yelling about torpedoes.  But  I am not even detected.  In fact, I am  just coming out from behind an island to engage another St. Louis.  What the he...     BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM.     And I'm dead.  Cross torped  from behind at short range by 2 of my  team who, I guess, thought their torpedoes could steer themselves .

Things are dumb enough in the mid to high tiers, but this was truly beyond the pale.  

So farewell my old friend.  I won't sell you and I will visit you from time to time (your appearance alone makes me smile)

But I just can't take it anymore.

Have some patience, you were a noob once.

There are some VERY good players in t-3-4. Unicorns.  Why?  Stat padding. No secret. Bunch have a St Louis or Kuma or Doggoie etc. down there.  Check it out. Would I lie?  :Smile_amazed:  Those tiers can be tough to win in when the stat pad division guys team up and invade. It's legal. Ok!  But don't be naive.

Gee  for I minute there reading your post I thought you were going to sell the old girl, I don't get mine out as much as I would like to but there is no way in hell I'm going to sell her.

One of the best low tier battleships :Smile_teethhappy: I mean cruisers there is, slow but deadly and feels no pain.

Why sell one of the best ships in the whole game?

I do miss deleting St Louis with the balanced battleship Nikolai. 

But low tiers can be frustrating for that reason.

Play her in Co-op.

Think of it as revenge on the bots for when you were a noob, and they would troll you hard.

Of all the ships to troll in a Kuma the St L was definitely one of the ones it was best to just try getting a torp angle on as it took forever to burn those things down (as opposed to just about any other ship in the Kuma's meta)…& I ran my Kuma before the protected T4 so even including the T6 ships St L was a pain in comparison.

It even seemed to have a hidden fire resistance compared to other ships...hard to set on fire even in the Kuma at times.

Never ran it myself other than to get through the tree climb but remember always having to work to take them out.

I love my St. Louis, although I do not play it much. It was a very fun ship before the introduction of new RN and FN CA lines. One of my all best battle was 2 St. Louis against 2 St Louis. It felt like old tall ships slugging it out. The problem I find these days is game awareness no mater what tier you are playing. When you had fewer lines, player would know the strengths and weakness of the ships they where going against.

Don't sell the old girl you may go back and have fun with her time to time....
