Did a few people need to complete the 450 hits with main guns? There were 5 Atlanta's & 2 New Orleans in Operation Hermes. It was hard to see the enemy ships there was so many shells in the air. The enemy DD's & aircraft didn't last long. But we were missing the heavier fire power a BB brings to the team. It was still a fun match.

We had four last night.  Didn't make the connection.  (4 stars for damage to Ruan.)

Well; I have heard ‘Just bring Atlanta, or just go home,’ about that Op...

Actually, maybe I will; haven’t played that one at all yet. Forgot KW ended this morning.

Atlanta is ridiculously OP in PvE, better than many 6" gunned cruisers. Really should be addressed.

You keep your mitts off my Atlanta! :Smile-angry:

Her ridiculous guns are balanced by the fact that the shells travel through the stratosphere to reach targets at 10 km or beyond and by the fact that she explodes when a BB so much as farts at her.

Yeah, ATL is the ship of choice in that op. And 5, well, that's just hilarious. I always love it when an op is full of USN cruisers. The amount of shells in the air is scary, and the AA, yeah, well, good luck bot CV. My frames on the other hand, do not appreciate that many objects in the air at one time.

Was really tempted to post this gif 5 times. But I worried about causing a seizure.

just got cheated out of 5 stars on the op.  Ruan was well off the map and the game waited for it to get torped for 60% of its life before ending

***edit***

second go around and got a 5 star with 122 air craft shot down.  Atlanta is amazing

You leave my PvE ATL alone!!! I'll solo co-op rounds and OPS if I want to! :fish_nerv:

I cycle through my Lyon, Belfast and Atlanta. Each ship brings something to the table.

I cycle through my New Orleans, Helena, Atlanta, Fuji, Algerie & Lyon. Yes, each ship brings something.

I see too many Atlantas depart the match early to be labeled OP in PVE. Player skill is what makes the Atlanta shine in both PVE & PVP.

Lots of Cruisers are very good for Hermes, but the problem they have is many of the players that use them are already almost all dead by the half way mark.  They also don't realize that they need to get ahead of Ruan and the BBs and screen, because the Operation wants the BBs to survive.  The Cruisers are actually expendable in this Op.  Towards the last 1/4 of the Op, they need to be out front with Radar, Hydro running and dealing with those DDs and torps.  But that doesn't happen with pick up groups.  They let Ruan tank for them and unsurprisingly, the Op fails.

Yep... and thus is the problem with the ship. I have one too and feel dirty after playing it.

I don't. I've been on the receiving end far too often to have any  guilt about unleashing that on others. To my credit (if it needs to be), I mainly keep her for main battery, fire and ribbon hit farming tasks in co-op (and the torpedoes sometimes come in handy too).

Right... but it's one of those ships in Coop that does so well it hampers other members of the team from being able to earn any rewards, it's too good.

I've had other Atlantas in the same battle for the same reason cut ME out of the spoils, so I have no guilt about that either. It all comes down to how good your aim is; I haven't yet perfected the art of firing semi-blind over obstacles, and I tend to shoot better when firing salvoes than chain firing.

I'm trying to come up with a time I've felt dirty for playing ATL in any mode.

 

Im failing in it, though, failing badly.

In coop when you earn double the XP of the next guy on your team... nobody else had a chance to even play.
