Congrats. For 800 games, the Atago/Takao was my favorite ship. I don't play it as much as I used to but I still see people doing amazingly well in it, even in tier X matches.

@Kaitsuze Congrats on first place! If you don't mind telling us, what was the point total that you got near the end? WG didn't release the top scores, but I am really curious. Would be cool to see how close the 2nd and 3rd place winners were.

Agreed, I love my Atago. Things you can't take away from her no matter the tier, stealth 9.3.... Speed 35 base... These attributes don't care what tier, congrats

strange that a prem has had such a long shelf life. lots of them have been kinda power krept, or the game has changed around them, and negatively impacted them

I never did get a good feel for Atago.  Maybe I'll have to dust her off and see if I can play her any better now.

Hey The Dreadnought,

One of the big keys to using the Atago correctly is taking advantage of her good HE alpha damage combined with her great concealment. She is no joke in the AP department either but you need broadsides to really take advantage of the 203s. I suggest also making sure you are kiting away when playing the Atago, you never want to get trapped nose in. She can also stealth torp and when you are in an even tier game this can really surprise enemy ships so don't forget this tactic.

Good luck and enjoy giving the Atago another shot!

Thanks I will.   I think my problem is I'm just too aggressive a player.   I'll work on my kiting skills.  Thanks!

What I have noticed Atago players doing is not paying attention to where enemy BBs are and where they may be heading as well as aiming. This is particularly deadly when a Bismarck is within Secondary range of your Atago as you have to assume Bismarck will be running hydro so your torpedoes will very likely not hit the Bismarck, secondary guns will be trying to deep fry you, and if the BB main guns are loaded with AP you will have tragic citadel hits. ( well other CAs can fail in this regard as well, but Atago citadel tends to be easier for me to hit) That’s often the result of being a little too aggressive in Atago.

So unless your laying a careful ambush using islands and torpedoes beware of getting too close. Now Atago does have some things going for it such as that very narrow hull which is makes it very difficult to hit at longer ranges, meanwhile the HE your Atago fires can light some nice fires on BBs before the Atago goes dark pretty much at the choosing of the Atago player if played right. This can make pursuing enemy ships reconsider the wisdom of chasing after you for very long.

Other option is to division with a good DD player, preferably a USN DD so that you get the best smoke in the game. Such a division can allow you to play a little more aggressively with some practice. Allows the tactics of smoke firing or smoke to cover your retreat to be used.

Finally I would like to congratulate you on getting Atago, IJN ships are some of my favorites. And hope you will enjoy your new ship. :Smile_smile:
