I wish Des Moines upgrade was on Worcester

I think most of us would agree that the range upgrade is almost necessary on the des moines. It facilitates shooting over islands, and most of the damage that I do to bb is in the 15.7-18.4km range so I would never think of replacing it. However, taking the range upgrade on Worcester is pointless and it already has so much dpm that I wouldn't mind replacing reload with much improved manueverability. Like the minotaur, being able to accelerate quickly would greatly increase the survivability of the ship. I think that the current legendary upgrade for the Worcester suits the ship's role, but I would rather trade dpm than the ability to surprise radar dds.

Fixed that for ya; otherwise it was perfect.

I agree with you.

One of the biggest weakness of Worcester is her poor maneuverability. Coupled that with bad firing angle, she is not a very flexible ship.

That DM legendary upgrade would make Worcester quite strong and perhaps even more flexible than radar minotaur.

 

However, I do play DM with reload module. I actually find reload module much better than range module as I almost never try to shoot at targets outside 16km. I find burst damage from DM is much more impactful than long-range harass.

I haven’t noticed any agility issues. I think some xtra acceleration  and better brakes would be nice but they are decent as is. My biggest beef is with the Atlanta arcs and useless AP. If Cleve needed an AP buff at tier 8 then Wooster definitely needs it at tier 10. The rof is way offset by the miserable arcs, slow velocity and super floaty ballistics. It is very difficult to hit a wasd destroyer even at 8km. Don’t know what can be done about that but a buff in one or more areas would go a long way. 

On the plus side , Wooster is pretty agile, has lots of useful tools and is an excellent escort or support vessel. Rather than hunt dd with it I have been spamming larger targets like cruisers and B.B. with it. I think ships with better trajectories are better suited for dd killing.
