Just got my Drake, looking for some advice on best way to set her up and play from those who have her or veteran players to give advice to a greenie. I loved the Albemarle, and did fairly decent with her. Does the Drake play the same? 

Thanks in advance.

She doesn't really play any different than the previous ships in the line.  You'll need to get good use out of your spotter plane as her short gun range can be a bit painful on the bigger maps. Personally I think the Drake is the best ship in the entire line.

The real difference is you now can penetrate 58mm of armor with the guns and that gives you more offensive firepower. Lower profile in the water makes it more ideal for playing defensive or using the ship to bow tank within the confines of good positioning.

I went a different way. I am still on the A hull and trying the Gun Fire control for longe range. Downside 18 second reload and floaty shells. Fight another cruiser they will shoot 3 times compared to your 2 (thats a average). The higher tiers seem to have a longer range type meta at times.

By the time I get to the B hull see if I like it.
