I'm currently going up the IJN and Soviet cruiser line. I'm enjoying myself with my Perth and De Grasse that I got as well. Which of the two lines would I have more fun going through? I can free xp to either the Dallas or the Nurnberg not both though. TIA

The German line is CAs from tier 7 and up. So it's not really a CL line. If you want CLs (Light cruisers, cruisers with 6" guns), US and UK are the only routes that have light cruisers to tier 10.

The Konigberg is excellent and Phoenix is lots of fun for US, no need to burn all your free XP to skip thru good ships. You will need to log games to build up your captains too, rolling around with a 3 pt. captain in a tier 6 or 7 ship is no bueno.

KM line is excellent but as mentioned if you want pure CL playstyle go US.

I preferred the USN CA line myself, especially so with the recent bluffs/additions.

USN CLs excel at island hugging. And what I mean by that is if you leave island cover (or get stuck on ocean), you’re gonna struggle. They have pretty good AP and HE, and at later tiers have tremendous rates of fire  

KM Cruisers are a good line, ranging from the paper armored königsberg to the powerful Hindenburg. They have powerful AP (but horrid bounce angles), and anemic HE with good pen.

 

Both lines are excellent if played to their strengths, but will punish you (German to a lesser degree) if played incorrectly.

Nuremberg has a higher rof, velocity and range at t6 than Seattle at t9. Nuremberg has a 6s reload without adrenaline rush and ~16.5km range and 4 banks of 6km torpedo tubes.

If you just want a t6 to grind credits and have fun but no further? Nuremberg is the best in slot for you.

It's also a floating citadel. 
When played properly though, it's annoying cruiser, and the 1/4 HE pen hurts over time. Don't the shells have significant air drag though? They have range but, much like Akizuki, they lose that initial velocity fast.

I prefer KM. I found the USN CL challenging to play because of their armor scheme compared to KM. Also, Hindenburg, one of the best T10 cruisers in the game.

KM cruisers are the first line I started and completed, and it is still me favorite. All around great durable, heavy-hitting ships.

Germany has the best cruisers hands down, they are perfectly balanced with firepower and armor....Hinderburg is arguably the best ship in the game. 

Learn that line and you can take on Yammy's and fear no evil.

Two different styles of gameplay. If you only have time for one, German.
