Ok, I just got the Seattle on Monday and I can't hit anything with it.

It's fully upgraded with the 18.2km gun range.

I had a challenge learning how to aim with the Atlanta's guns but this is far worse.  

Should I stick to targets under 12 km instead of shooting at max range?

For now, the Seattle is relegated to coop games.

Any tips?

Those shells go into orbit for a brief time before coming back down. If you aren't hitting anything than you're either too far away, or aren't giving enough lead. While firing at an enemy ship, zoom out a little so you can see the shell's arcing. Try to get closer. Aim at where you think the ship will be 15~20 seconds from firing. Keep practicing.

Joey you know that in order to hit something you need to keep your eyes open right ?

Thanks for the Pro-Tip, joey. How long did it take you to figure that one out?

Shouldn't you be on the EU server?

Shooting with the orbital guns needs practice.

Shooting with the orbital guns needs timing.

Shooting with the orbital guns needs your full attention.

Go to the training room.

Shell travel time works the same as any boat. If you're using the dynamic crosshair and the shell travel time is 8s, put the 8th tickmark near the center of the ship and fire. This assumes the ship is travelling 30knts. Adjust accordingly if you think they're going faster or slower.
