T10 cruisers are great. T9 is pretty much a suck tier across all cruiser lines, however, so there's a big speed bump on the way there. T8s are good, but many don't uptier well, and they all have problems lasting to late game because they don't have repair party yet.

I hear from many people that cruisers are useless above tier 7 or 6, Is this really true? I mean some cruisers have torps so they can engage BB. But some cruisers don't have the fire power.

What are your thoughts?

Whoever told you T10 CA/CL are useless has never been on the recieving end of the flamethrowers that are the Zao, Des Moines, and Worcester. HE Spam PTSD right there.

IMO, If you're a new player going up the RN cruiser line. You're not going to like the experiance of grinding those ships with the new BB AP changes in place. 

Why not?

I only have the Zao and to call that ship "useless" is just wrong.  Now, I am a super spud grand national and certified POTATO with several Additional Skill Identifiers (Mashed and Baked), so i can't comment on the other Nation's cruisers, BUT the Zao is a match for any CA in the game....  Holy crap, she's a well designed six pack of whoop a** looking to misbehave against all expectations no matter where or when....  The only thing she has against her is durability in slug fests....  The Mogami is another of the IJN cruisers that is not only significantly dangerous but, if chased, becomes even more dangerous because she excels in stern chases.....   Think starting fires and a slew of 8 or 10K torps headed your way as she turns out of engagements.....

Wow OP, troll on if you must,  but the IJN Cruisers ain't for the Uber-Aggressive but, are most definitely armed to the teeth and for smart, non-potato CPT's, and are extremely dangerous when sailing in small teams of ships.....

The only high tier cruisers that are useless are the ones driven by guys who think a Des Moines and with a spotted plane is better than one with radar.

don't forget that said captain also feels that same Des Moines is best used in open water,  well away from any islands.

 X Cruisers are good, have Zao, Hindenburg and Worcester each has to be played a certain way, but there solid and fun.. however

Vlll and lX Cruisers have a big disadvantage in that you are uptiered more than not fighting these X ships .. not so much fun but grind through them it’s well worth it I do not play the Vlll or lX anymore but keep them around fo Special events such as ranked were they may be needed

I don’t know who would say such a thing but you definitely need to stop listening to them. Cruisers are even more lethal, capable and are considerably more survivable at high tiers. In my opinion cruisers are the one type of ship whose weapon systems scale best as you go up.

No, whoever said that misspoke.

In the high tiers you get blapped much more often for mistakes; one small misplay and you'll get roflstomped, especially since tier X battleships have massive [edited]-you autopen shells. (excluding Battleship Moskva) If you misposition then you're going to get focused down by BBs who know they can overmatch, as there's no way in most high-tier cruisers for you to bounce BB shells.

I find that it's much less consistent in the lower tiers -- you can still get blapped for messing up your angling at tier 4 or 5, but it's much less likely. Depends on who you get into a match with. You'll get away with mistakes more often, but not always.

Agreed, cruisers get a lot more power at higher tiers; cruiser DPM is indeed monstrous at tier IX and X. However, I'd make the point that the power of other classes increases as well, so in addition to you having much more firepower at your disposal, the other classes will have it easier to punish you for small mistakes.

I have DM, Zao, Hindenburg and Henry as t10. Now I feel fine. But when I first got into t10 with DM (two years ago), I was so bad that I just quit. So I kind of understand that sentiment. 

But most of the time, your ships are fine. It's just the players.
