Which cruiser line is your favorite?

Cruisers are best known for being the "jack of all trades" class and are able to carry out multiple roles while utilizing powerful gunfire, anti-aircraft, and sometimes lethal torpedoes.

Whether you have outstanding games, records, and statistics in a particular tech tree or if you're a huge fan of the that nation's naval history, everyone has a particular line that is their favorite.

What nation is your pick to go cruising for bruising?

"This ship is built to fight. You had better know how." - Arleigh Burke, US Navy

Probably low tier US. 

Phoenix is really fun. 
Omaha is amazing, just hard to use in t7. 
Helena is rocking. 
Cleveland is hard to use though.

I love the IJN cruiser line since they have the stealth, the Torps, and nice hard hitting main guns that are great with AP or starting fires with HE. Aoba, Myoko, And Mogami are my favorites in the line, although think I am going to like Zao as well now that it gets Torps that hit beyond it’s minimum Concealment range.

Also very found of Kriegsmarine CAs like the Graf Spee.

The 155mm Mogami of old. RoF boost by BFT, range by AFT. Some people just wanna see the world burn.

@Gneisenau013 should a done a poll man. As a bb main suffering the rental blues in CB, I've been looking for a cruiser line to grind:fish_book:

 

Cant really voice a favorite cruiser line because I haven't played any... had a blast with the French on the new PT though!

Going by tier, I'd say:

1: Orlan

2: Dresden (with special nod to Emden, pity she's two guns shy)

3: Bogy

4: Phoenix

5: Emile Bertin

6: I miss my Cleveland

7: Love my Helena, but Fiji and I have a long affair going

8: All hail Mikhail (Kutuzov, that is)

9: Roon

-and of course-

10: Hindenburg, because Minotaur is fun, but going splat in seconds isn't as much fun.

My favorite has to be St Louis. Plan to bring her back into my port at a later date. Although I did like how Bogatyr played also.

Helena! Though Belfast, Fiji, De Grasse, Perth, and Phoenix are sweet botes too.

Atago or Chapayev...Chapayev's torps suck, but the reload on main guns is awesome.  I have my highest WR in Chapayev.

Leander and Fiji are the standout performers for me. Get in close to caps, support friendly destroyers, kill enemy DDs, who cares if you’re up tiered, late battle go cap yourself as a faux dd, and torp hapless battleships through the nose...

What’s not to like??!?

German line would be my favorite, specifically from mid tier to top (not really a fan of Dresden and Kolberg, TBH). I donno why, but I just think they look so kewl. LOL. 

My absolute favorite ones in the line would be Prinz Eugen and Admiral Graf Spee. Such cool ships, lel. :Smile_teethhappy:

Graf Spee is love...Graf Spee is life. 

Favorite cruiser line though has to be IJN crusiers. The 155 Mogami with IFHE is a DPM beast that is a favorite of mine as well.

Honorable mention to the British CL's. Leander/Fiji are a lot of fun to play.

German Cruisers all the way. Excellent multipurpose ships. Their AA suites are like the Spanish Inquisition; nobody suspects it until their planes start disappearing.

 

I still have my Nürnberg with AA spec for operations, and while the Hipper is a good ship, I'm absolutely in love with her THICCer younger sister, the Prinz Eugen. The HSF Graf Spee was my first premium ship as well.

I have Nueve de Julio, which is similar to Helena and I ran into an Atlanta in PvP that wanted to trade shots inside of 6km. He was shooting HE, so right after I sank him with AP, I healed all the damage he did. :cap_like:

I can’t believe no one has mentioned Des Moines... I mean seriously I love almost all cruisers (except svietlana, svietlana can spend eternity as a coral reef for all I care), but Des Moines is a beast. 

Ever wanted to nuke another cruiser with one or two salvos? Des Moines 

Ever wanted to be a DDs worst nightmare? Des Moines

Ever wanted to punish a cocky BB who thinks they can sail broadside to you? Des Moines melts broadsides like Texas summers melt New Englanders

Des Moines almost makes me forgive Iowa (state) for existing.
