I rarely see them being played in T10 matches now.

Have they became obsolete after series of direct and in-direct nerfs?

Does last AP shell damage cap on DDs affect effectiveness of RN cruisers against dds too?

Is this branch abandoned from WG?

The AP damage cap to DDs, only applies to shells 280mm and larger. So the only cruisers affected are the Adm Graf Spee and HSF Graf Spee. UK cruiser AP is unaffected.

Why play them, when you can play Kitakaze, Harugumo, or Worcester?

I've seen plenty of Mino's. They love my Musashi.

Neptunes not as much, seen a few but yeah there's no shortage of minos.

Other ships do it better, with less risk.

Radar makes the RN smoke less valuable at high tiers.

Ya I’ve literally never known a person who kept the Neptune after unlocking Mino.

I literally played a match with a Radar Minotaur yesterday against a Smoke Minotaur.

Side note:  I sold my Minotaur to complete my IJN CA collection (buyback on Myoukou and Ibuki).

Playing my Neptune at least once daily grinding.   Fun ship, even if not a bit fragile for T10 play..   Really looking forward to Minotaur,

Minotaur is the only T10 that I play.  I really don't like the style of higher tier gameplay but I love the Mino enough to drag it out from time to time

Worcester lacks torpedoes, needs islands to do her best work otherwise is in trouble with no smoke.  Her Radar was nerfed big a while back also, losing 0.9km in range which is significant.  Her amazing AA is about to get gutted.  Minotaur is just fine.

This guy did. It's hilarious to run in Co-op.

And the Super-Cruisers.

Gotcha, I'm going to find out soon enough anyway lol.

As an aside, I try with Fiji and Edin not to rely on smoke, except for a getaway. Not that I won't set up smoke and start shooting, but only on an opportunistic basis, I don't go looking to do so.

I don't recall seeing a shortage of them. But I can understand why some may not want to play. Same problem as DDs: Radar.

Except that unlike DDs, a radared RN cruiser in smoke is around 3 seconds from deletion if a pair of BBs is ready to shoot at it. Destroyers normally can at least survive the onslaught.

Now with the radar changes coming, this might change.

I try and run my Mino once a day as I am grinding the legendary.

Sold Neptune when I moved Jack to the Mino, but plan to buy it back once I have another ten pointer available to slap in it.

BTW British cruiser AP still wrecks dds.

Lots of both still in Co-op - maybe they are all there. :Smile_veryhappy:

Now that was truly funny, Holmes!  :cap_like:

But does that make those of us who have kept and play their Minotaurs "remoaners", I mean, "remainers"?  :Smile_hiding:

One thing that people keep forgetting with the potential radar delay mechanic is that it will be a buff to this line, a small but welcomed buff.
