I have played for about 2 years. Most of that time with a laptop that could barly run the game. A good night was 20 FPS. I would be firing at stuff that was no longer there.  Now I have a new comp and everything runs perfict and looks great.

Because of that I had 5 krakens in that 2 year time. I got the Donskio and I had 5 krakens in one night!

I have played all t9 except IJN and struggled in all of them but Donskio is a t9 worthy of being there. The guns, torps, and armor are 1st rate.

Everyone has always said its the captain and not the ship but I am questioning that now. 

What was your experance of t9?

Donskoi is a great cruiser so long as you aren't the center of attention. The best kiter, and late game flexer. Its awesome fun to div with an Iowa/Missouri and blitz all over the map causing havoc wherever you go.

So far I only have 2 T9 cruisers - Neptune and Buffalo. I think the last time I played Neptune was before smoke changes, not because I don't like it and all, just been a long time and have had other missions/priorities take over. Buffalo I only bought it the other day. First few matches, mostly cause of teams, were a struggle. But, turns out sh's exactly like Baltimore - found myself at a point of "**** it" and charged a Republique that aside from a couple over pens to the super structure, and an AP round from a ship half a map away to the citadel, couldn't punch through the angled bow armour. And as he got more desperate gave me enough broadside to ram AP into his sides. I know these are "cruisers" but that and Balti have let me play like a BB when needed (aka, almost every match when my team wants to just run and hide) and since everything I found historically says that Alaska was basically upsized Balti - I can not wait for that ship. If it tanks rounds even half as well I'mma love that ship. 

 

Beyond that Halfway to Roon, still struggling through La Gal though it's been a little better after they added MBRB, Still have to get through tier 7 RU cruiser, and well, I started to struggle with Aoba.

Buffalo is stronger than Baltimore. 

The prize at the end is worth it.

I agree that the Roon is also an excellent ship, haven't played mine but did well enough in it.  Buffalo I need to do better with damage and wins, XP is alright but need to get better with it.
