Atlanta is Playable but it would be better if this was added

  So at the moment Atlanta isn't really playable for me.  She just sits and rots in port.  I am suggesting a slight change to her.  Since the developers wont give Atlanta some new torpedoes with a range of 7 KM or even 6.5 KM instead of the 4.5 KM torpedoes she has on her now so it would be up to part at least with the Flint.  With the Radar Consumable being used.  At tier 7 I when I play Atlanta most of the time I am trying to hide behind a rock.  Same with most of the other Atlanta players.  Radar for her is well just MEH.  The slight change I am requesting for this ship is this.

 

1. Either upgrade the torpedoes to give them longer range.  So they are actually usable instead of defense only.

2.  Add in the function of the availability of the Smoke Consumable.

 

  How ever, at tier 7 if the Smoke Consumable is allowed to be on Atlanta.  There would be a set back.  You would either have to choose between the Radar Consumable or the Smoke Consumable.  I for one don't really use Radar much if at all when I'm playing or have played in my Atlanta.  I would much rather have smoke.  Atlanta is basically the Queen of the Glass Cannon ships  The Molotov being the King Glass Cannon.  Anyways if you agree with me on this great.  If not that's okay too.   But Devs please MAKE Atlanta Great Again.  Thanks for reading.

I always chuckle when people want Atlanta buffs.

Sure. Buff one of the most skill dependent ships. I will harvest even more saltiness!

I think Atlanta is strong enough as is. When playing to her strengths, she's OPAF. When not, she's dead in the blink of an eye.

Atlanta is a strong ship.

The only thing she needs is a salvo of 11" - 15" shells right into her citadel to make her better.

You basically are asking for a buff to a ship that is borderline OP (but since potatoes get wrecked when they play it, it's not considered OP).

While not as bad as the skill gap on CVs, the skill gap on Atlanta is pretty significant too.

Which at a tier where radar is so rare, is a massive buff for her. I mean, look at how well the Fiji performs.

You must learn the ways of the atlanta. Learn the art of shooting over islands, learn the art of ambushing crusiers with AP for heaps of citadels. Learn how to lead targets 10 seconds in advance. Do this, and atlanta becomes one of the best ships for randoms in game.

Guess I just never really learned to play it properly the AFT skill on the Atlanta just gives me a headache because of the horrible floating arc that goes into space lol.

I always laugh when I hear people wanting Atlanta equipped with smoke.

Then in the same breath, they complain that ships like Flint and Belfast ruin Ranked and Random gameplay.

True. Might as well just give Atlanta smoke AND radar! Then potatoes everywhere can die just as fast.

They have buffed atlanta several times. If you want smoke then you're going to have to give up radar. Both is too much, as we have seen with Belfast.

On one hand the atlanta is hard to lead targets with due to its crazy flight times. However, its crazy fire rate allows you to learn its ballistics quicker than most other guns. Once you have a handle on that (and IFHE) you can melt any same tier or lower BB with little issue.

The psychological factor of walls of HE also means you hardly have to hit stuff to have a fairly big map impact.

And in the radar meta that's been with us for like 24 months, a ship like ATL getting caught in smoke is a dead ship.

 

Besides, we have what you want, already. It's called "Flint."

You know, Atlanta has more HE DPM than Des Memes does and Atlanta also has considerably better AA in her tier, compared to Des Memes.

My only problem with Atlanta is that I cant seem to ever hit anything with her mortars unless it's in my face.
