This ship is so awful, the range is so bad, and you have to give up dpm just to have somewhat useable range, and it gets targeted by everyone. I don’t know how to play it I just don’t get it. It’s so bad please can anyone help. How do I play it I try to use islands but I just get radared or plane spotted. I just want the damn Des Moines

I feel like I could like her, but her reload is too garbage. Rudder shift is hopeless. Bow-on doesn't work. Only thing I can say is FXP. Oh, and maybe try spotter aircraft?

how many point captain do you have in it? It was grandfathered to me, it replaced my beloved Baltimore....and because of which I will despise Buffalo in RL for eternity.... 12 games 58%... so blah.... I urge you to spend an hour looking up Cat on Board on youtube. and watch him play the Des Moines, it translates to all US cruisers. he changed my life. After watching and learning how he plays I went to over 70% in over close to 100 games in my Baltimore. I am not that good, he is, watch his vids.. you will get better.

Hey, brother. Here is a video that might help a little.

I only have one game in the Buffalo (a loss), though I managed 74k damage. I opted to work through Dallas to Helena before picking up Buffalo in earnest.

I hope the video helps. There are likely other CCs with helpful Youtube videos, if you look around a bit.

Respects,

Am

I'm just going to say - besides YouTube CC's ( who do a pretty good job), running 20 games of co-op will at least point you to the right way to play and usually don't take 10 minutes.

Or you could do training room, but that doesn't help with grinding.

Everyone should be able to handle cruisers well.

Last time I ran it in PvE, I had a decent enough game but even with premium I lost a bit over 11k credits.  But overall yeah, I'm just not feeling the love for this one at all.  I've had a couple good games in it, and a bunch of really bad ones.

If you want a serious response, ask your question like an adult instead of screaming like a brat kid.

Until then, maybe you should become a pats fan instead. I don’t think the Bills will ever be good again.

I also don't run premium consumables on anything except clan or ranked under my impression that I will get gud without those game crutches. And when I'm feeling especially snarky, sans cammo too.

“Screaming”, yeah right totally, I’m just a little baby aren’t I, wow what an original insult. Just piss off with that please, I’m sick of it and I’m sick of this ship

So you give the enemy more advantages by running no premium modules or camo and are under the false impression running without these will make you a better player? No it's not. I hope you don't end up on my team. I can understand the consumables if you are short on credits depending on your tier but not the camo which benefits you more so than the players around you. Specially at higher tiers where every bit of an edge can make a difference in a fight. 30 second difference on DCP can make or break a fight really easy.

Just use it in Co op battles, until you can get the XP to research the Des Moines. It's a shame that there are no scenarios you can play it in. Free XP if you are not saving it for something better, which I assume you are. Other wise it is just like the old tier 9 US CL grind, I hated that.

Buffalo's reload should get knocked down to Baltimore's reload of 10 seconds. The ship gets another turret so it has a "heavier" salvo, as well as the 6th upgrade slot, making Buffalo a logical continuation of the line and helping players to get used to the faster reload that they will get with Des Moines.

I got mine right away, played it in coop many games, and realized I would never take it into Randoms. There is no situation in which Buffalo will be more useful or dangerous than Des Moines, and it is certainly much less fun. Since T9s are de facto T10, I just play DM and sold Buffalo.  

It's also a total downgrade from the old Baltimore, which at least had range. You could spec it for fire, spam out HE, and do decent damage from afar before pushing up to kill stuff. That 13 sec reload on the Nuffalo is stupidly slow, and the gimped range is ridiculous. I dont understand how a ship that awful made it past the supertesters. As a BB driver, I love seeing Buffalos.

How awful is it? On the NA server it is the worst T9 cruiser, neck and neck with the mediocre Ibuki. Mind you, this is the phase of its existence when the best players should be playing it. Its current numbers will fall. Unfortunately it is actually ahead of Neptune, Donskoi, and Ibuki in average damage on the RU server (how?) and so will never get the buff it needs. Here are the RU numbers.

It needs a 9 second reload and torps, which it had in one incarnation, as I recall, just to be competitive.

The best advice you already got: if you cant FXP it, grind it up in coop. It is that bad. But if can play Atlanta and Helena, you will love DM. Dat AP....

This has to be bait.... Ship is darn near perfect for tier 9. I don’t see how it could be better without it being over powered.
