Photographed at my ultra secret ocean base....

Yes, some may call her Payfast but that's a low blow really. She's just one of the jewels in the crown of the WoWS premium fleet. 

But wow am I out of practice with her... all her commanders have long moved on and up... all the high point commanders now command carriers. Her sister cruisers have been mothballed or sold to other nations... she looks a bit long in the tooth. 

Where's the maintenance guys - she needs a new paint job! 

I'm laughing though... I only managed 38k in a match. We lost but only cause we got out capped at the start. We were winning at the end..  you know, the old "one more minute and..." routine. But she brought back a lot of fun memories.

The "cat and mouse" games you can play with her are silly fun. Her guns? Yowmee... like em. She's probably the only ship (other than Salem) where I can fire HE salvos and have a pretty darn good assurance they'll land on target. 

So if you see me out and about in her, dorking about, don't be too critical. It'll take me a few matches to get back into the swing of things with her. 

But we all got to get ready for this speed rank thing, right?

Too bad WG will not let anyone else have one.  I do not think it's right to offer ships to some people and not others.

The changes to firing from smoke for cruisers and BBs probably removed at least part of the reason to stop selling that ship.

Have to say, one of the funnest ships in the game.   New CV meta has taken a bit of the shine off, exit strategy when the smoke dissipates can be a problem when planes are in the air around you, but still a ship that I play regularly (out of my 150 ships).  Enjoy, will try to burn your camo a bit if I see you “red-ding” around in randoms

Offer? Huh? It was available for sale. Absolutely anyone and everyone could buy it for quite a while. They pulled it from the store but now you have the Xmas gambling crates with a super slim but measurable chance that they might drop one for you. 

Its not like the steel ships which are “more balanced” than any line ship and continue to inflate in price faster than folks are slowly able to acquire the means to buy one.

Perth has smoke, hydro and a spotter... at tier 6.   Not quite as good as radar at penetrating smoke, but longer duration on both.
