It isn't the worst challenge. Ibuki may be best with her HE spam for this.

Kron would be number 2.  Bit higher AP alpha and fire for the HE.

Roon has frequently scored me over 100k frequently. I believe the most damage I have done in match is 131k or so, so my bet is take Roon and sling HE to start as many fires as you can. Most BB’s will let a single fire burn, so hit one, light fire, hit another, rinse and repeat. Also AP at anything broadside will net large salvos, even BB’s broadside will net 10-15k salvos with AP frequently.

that may be true but it has much worse DPM compared to every other cruiser at that tier so I would place it a bit lower

This is a task in a campaign.

It looks pretty hard.

I have Buffalo, Ibuki, Kron, Neptune, Roon so far. Which is better to achieve this task?

Don’t know about those but Play Zao and Hindenburg and numerous times I’ve got above that , even did  130000 in my V Murmansk once

If you just want to move on to the next stage just repeat a task. However, it is not an impossible target for even merely average players.

I'd echo others in suggesting Ibuki or Roon, with a T9 ship you will need a great (though not unheard of) game.

Kronshtadt has the highest average damage at about 69k, Buffalo has the lowest at 44.5k. Neptune's not very good either.

Eh, probably Kron. Maybe Ibuki. Buffalo has a lot of potential, but tricky to get in the right position.

Other ships: Zao, definitely Zao. Moskva (could argue that it's a BB). Woostah, the amount of damage that thing can put out is downright scary. Des Memes too. Both are situational for that DPM though.

Look, 150K is hard in any ship (well, Conqueror), even in BBs I've only busted it a couple times. The hard answer is the ship you feel most comfortable in is what is most likely to get you that 150K game. Don't try and force a ship you don't like to work just because we said it's the best one.

Ibuki is my vote, I've got several 130k+ damage games in her using a spotter plane and reload booster. Might can duplicate that in an Buffalo with spotter plane. Not sure about Kronstadt. I don't own her, but I'd be afraid you'd be frustrated by her accuracy and get a lot of bounces due to AP auto-bounce.

This is my recommendation, there's usually one "accumulate X amount of damage, credits, or exp". I just leave one of those on the back burner on repeat for campaigns I want to advance.

This is difficult?  Just learn how to be a better player, live longer, land more shots, and it comes easy.  I've had several today.

Roon might be the easiest one, kiting away dealing damage to BBs.

Stay alive and farm and you will get there.

Ibuki's RoF means you'll depend on RNG to get some fires, but her AP is very good, esp. if you catch RN CRs broadside. Her other awesome perk is those torpedoes, if you can ambush a BB around an island.

Roon has turtleback armor and the German HE pen, she can rack consistent damage w/ HE or AP. AP > HE on this ship both from velocity and strong pen values. She has the best consistent damahe if you sling HE a lot.

Kron, from what I've seen, needs principally AP vs. broadside targets. It's not well-suited to this.

Neptune's too reliant on positioning and people wandering too close.

Buffalo is the best if thinking AP as she has the improved autobounce AP vs. cruisers and DDs. At close range her AP can punch through the thin 16mm on RN CRs. At longer ranges, her AP loses little power--I've scored 8-15K volleys per salvo on broadside GKs and Yammys by aiming for their top decks.

It isn't just about being a better player. Only unicums look at that as an easy target. I don't know where they are breaking lower and higher tier here but look at the average damage.

Even for players that average far higher getting 150k is not a given.

Of the ships listed Roon would be the easiest for me for the reasons above

How far are you from the DM?  That would be a much, much better option.

Of those, probably Roon.

The one you're missing, and most likely to do that at T9 IMO, is St. Louis. Double rudder and special speed boost consumable- they shoot at you for a while then tire of not hitting you at that range. Meanwhile, you can burn everything down.

Best of luck to you.

I agree with others who have suggested Roon - tanky, but still with good HE pen and excellent AP, should get you over the line in a BB heavy match. 

Else, Saint Louis, who farm HE and fire damage at max range like it’s going out of style.

Haven't done it yet in Roon, Kron or Buffalo, but Ibuki and Neptune have been kind to me.
