Only 3 tier Xs, but yeah most ships can do will when low tier if played right AND luck is on your side.

it's not, Atago is a very powerful kitting cruiser that can literally win a 1 vs 1 against any T10 BB as long as you kite, dodge and torp backwards, the heal is a a really nice addition to help her even more.

Bottom tier ships get more exp from shooting higher tiers, than vice versa. Provided a good player is at the bottom tier ship's wheel, finishing at the top of the scoreboard can be achieved with a degree of regularity. It helps too that most players, including ones in the top tier ships, are poor players.

Really? The more and more up tiered i am in the Atago the better I do, not just in XP but in actual damage and cap control.

 

Plus, people get careless and i hear my Commander VO (Thank God for AL Collab) go "Ara Ara!" When I slam a full broadside into a stupid Minotaur player who thinks he is safe in his smoke punting shots while invisible at a BB.

Atago's good stealth and powerful HE make her like a zao that's kinda lame. Using her strengths she can hold her own.

Correct. IIRC there's a 10% XP bonus / demerit per tier for shooting at ships outside your own tier.

I didn't know that. I have a 1900 base XP personal mission that I'm having a hard time completing. I'll have to make sure to be more careful with what I shoot at.

Good player will almost always beat a bad player regardless of ships. That's universally true.

And the Atago player has three kills, I'm guessing he was doing more than farming. He also did it in a CV match, which makes it more interesting.

But yeah, the uptiered XP bonus is very nice. Many times as a T8 in T10 I've done OK, not great, but just a solid game, and find myself on top of the scoreboard.

The Atago is really good; doesn't matter what tier it is. It's an Aa MoNsTeR too.

The tier balance definitely helped and that is the real problem in being up tiered particularly for tier 8.

AA monster? Atago and Mogami have trash AA; like tier 6 Fuso bad. Every other nations tier 8 cruisers has two to three times the AA DPS compared to Atago. Enemy CV had to be loitering or continually dropping fighter fodder for him to manage 14 planes.

Dont know the exact mechanics, but something in the rework seriously buffed Atago AA.

One game I had 2 CVs constantly attacking me,  was ducking, dodging, weaving, like I usually do. Somehow managed to get my highest planes shot down out of all my cruisers.

It's WAAAAAY better than pre cv rework.

Yeah, I'm only half being sarcastic... nothing really has good AA these days, but the Atago/Takao is definitely better than her peers. Out of all my ships she has the third highest average plane kills for anything with a significant number of battles:

Atago is better than the Ibuki which is a t9 so....yeah it should be topping the charts, if you know how to lead and aim you can drop up 11k he salvos on the enemy. Combine that with its stealth and functional cruiser torps and you got a nasty package. If you are not pushing a 75k damage average in the atago, its not the ship.

Good work indeed, but you might want to hide a few of the names. I can't imagine the Benham player wants their performance broadcast to the world, for example.

The Cleveland player didn't do badly either. If I'm going to face Tier 10 in a Tier 8 ship, this is the sort of matchmaking I would not mind seeing.

I don't have an Atago, but I do have the ARP Takao, her sister ship.  It does great in tier 10 battles.  I love them.  I usually get top 3 or 4 with it, and have gotten top slot quite a few times with it.  And I'm not that great of a player.

The Atago’s guns are magic, especially at range. Combine that with larger T9 and T10 ships, it’s hard to miss. Careful selection of shells pays off as well. HE has a good fire chance and the AP really punishes anything that gets too close.
