Not a bad ship for very first game (stock) with it. Think she might be a keeper when i move on to T8.

About that...enjoy the fun while it lasts because there isn't a more steep "wth...I just went up a tier...shouldn't this higher tier ship be better?" moment in this game than when you go from Fiji to Edinburg (ugh).

Fiji OP...Edinburg OH NO!!!

Ed eventually gets 5k more HP but the rudder shift is atrocious comparatively/the guns are exactly the same/& the extra 2km eventual torp range doesn't make up for the uptiering it faces. What Fiji laughs at while easily maneuvering away from the Ed eats every time...& generally from higher tier turrets (let's just say that the extra 5k HP doesn't last long in the Ed).

BTW...if you like Ops Fiji is the bots in the present Op's (Narai) worst nightmare...can single handedly head north & eliminate the King & escorts & enter their base & singlehandedly eliminate the other CV while creating utter bot panic along the way & in the base after CV is gone.

Expect 25-30 cit hits/run. Only time you will need to smoke is while you are sitting broadside to the Mo stripping off massive HP on your way north to the King...the rest of the time the maneuverability allows you to easily dodge most incoming rounds (the ones that hit will just charge your Adrenalin Rush & let the real fun begin) & plane attacks that will be focusing on you & ignoring the rest of the convoy after the smoke wear off from harassing the Mo.

You've taken the 1st step on a new adventure...enjoy.

You forget that the Edinburgh gets a superheal, and you are not that much less maneuverable than the Fiji - 1 second less rudder shift, though about 100m worse turn. The Edinbugh also gets MASSIVELY better AA, and the ability to stealth torp.

Truth be told, you get about 25k total more health than the Fiji. But the uptiering makes it merely average, not OP that the Fiji was.

Everyone but me loves Fiji, apparently... :Smile_sceptic:

Not only you. Fiji was one of my longest grinds. All it was worth was getting Edi and the credits I got when i happily sold it.

Edinburgh is a good ship but it is the uptiering that makes her a sorry lot. She just has nothing to really complete with higher tier CAs. Only three torps to a side and no HE. However, if she is top tiered then she is fun to play and can do some serious killing.
