I don't know how you do this, my Exeter has crap AA and enjoys eating anything dropped on it thanks to the woeful rudder shift...

Dumb T4 enemy CV versus T5 AA, sector reinforcing, (which I once thought was stupid and worthless,) plus use your hydro to spot CV torps if you’re not desperately saving it for use hunting destroyers.

Exeter is gud bote.

I try to like the Exeter, but every team I’m placed on at T5 doesn’t know how to play the game. 
 

1. DDs dieing within first 2-3 minutes

2. BBs picking fights with DDs around islands. 
 

3. BBs sailing alone getting ganked.

4. DDs picking fights with 3+ ships.

i just can’t anymore

Exeter is best played as support to DDs. That 203mm HE is absolutely lethal to DDs ( trust me, I've been Exeter blapped more than once ). You should also try and kite BBs more often than not, and also hope that your team isn't full of thumb-sucking potatoes

Trust me, it's well worth it ))))

lol.

Funny you should say that.

My first game in Exeter was on New Dawn. Went to the NW corner outside A, and flipped on hydro before i reached the turning point.

To my surprise a wild Fubuki appeared! That long lasting hydro and those 203s, inside the hydro's range, that poor Fubuki never stood a chance.

Ever since then, that's how I've focused Exeter, hunting down destroyers. Especially late game, when they think it's safe to try to cap, because everyone's so spread out. :cap_haloween:

Some hate multi-CV matches.  I love 'em.  Finger licking good:

     Well done!

     I love the Exeter, with or without flying monkeys. I'd certainly nominate Exeter for best all-around new ship release of 2019. Very nice guns, excellent AA for tier, very nimble. Definitely a Gudbote.

You say that, until you get plopped into a double CV match at T8 one day.

You do know that the Exeter is Tier 5 right?

Either you fail-divved up, or something else happened...

Yes, I do.  Wasn't referring to Exeter with the T8 comment.
