Well, can't call it a grind...I got the Fiji on July 22, and at some point unlocked the Ed. Not even sure when, as I was in no hurry...

I freaking love the Fiji. So...now what?

Keep going? Put my 17 point captain on Ed, and put Jack Dunkirk on the Fiji? I can do that...but we all know Tier 8 is in a bad place. But I run the Eugen almost every time I play...so I must be a glutton for punishment, LOL. 

A part of me wants the Minotaur..mostly for Clan wars, and to be a total pain in the :etc_swear: to the other team, LOL. 

So, buy her or no? 

Thoughts?

I like playing the Edinbro it was like an upgraded Fiji. I didn't keep the Fiji because I own a Belfast or even keep the Edinbro either. The Neptune is a good ship that was also a lot of fun, in fact its still in my port with a high skill captain if I need it. I would encourage you to keep pushing up because the Minotaur is worth it. 

 

Once you get the Minotaur think about giving the USN Light Cruiser line a try. The Cleveland is a lot of fun and the Worcester is like a better Minotaur with all the consumables, IFHE but no smoke.

If that doesn't talk you out of it nothing will. I say get it, grind it, keep it, even though those stats say otherwise.

You can grind the Edin in Cherry Blossom. You just need a division to run with to do it when not operation of the week.

You must press on and continue the good and noble fight in the service of his majesty’s Royal Navy...  For King and Country... For the sake of the British Empire in which you must defend!

(Am I doing a good enough job trying to talk you out of it???)

I know right.

Its got all the consumables, more guns, HE that becomes NUTS with IFHE, and its a bit tankier than the Minotaur. You still need to be good with your WASD haxs and know how to use cover. But Its so much fun. Plus if you have Admiral Halsey than you dream of getting Confederate [which isn't hard in the Rooster] the ship becomes down right hilarious. 

At this point if I want to play a squishy Tier 10 Squishy DMP Machine Gun I take the Worcester over the Minotaur.

I heard Huragumo might actually be the replacement for Wooster.

For me Fiji was a meh, but Edinburgh is amazing kept it not Fiji. Only problem is it has weak guns against T10s. It's weak armour would be problem if you didn't have it's super heal which is amazing.

With that "Arctic camo" set a smoke screen so that an iceberg is you backdrop. That way when you are Radar detected, you present "low contrast" target and hopefully wont get deleted in 1 salvo.
