Every museum ship should be in the game.

I have been to the Olympia, she is very Pritty and should be there.

Definitely Tier 2, but rather weak against cruisers like Dresden and Emden.  Maybe beef up the 8" guns and give them better arcs.

Not so sure about that.

Olympia is like a St Louis with real guns. (The 203mms)

Yes and no.    

the 8" gun is larger, yes, but it only has a third of the RoF, and a lower weight of broadside per gun. Not to mention a dismal shell velocity.   

Plus, as a protected cruiser, most of Olypmpia is squishier than St Louis, an armoured cruiser. St Louis is also faster.   

So yeah, I'd lean towards tier II rather than III.

Should have a special consumable to allow the ship to pause the battle for breakfast.

In addition to pink/orange for teamkill actions, we might also have a BLUE status for WAR CRIMINALS that indiscriminately shell innocent civilians on the islands.

They are not innocents - they are part of the bot network, relaying positional info to the bots!

In her 8 inch gun configuration she is just a smaller, squishier, American Mikasa.  In 1917 she had all of her armament replaced with single 5"/51 caliber guns (the main turrets being removed and replaced with a simple gun platform not unlike the forward and rear guns of the St. Louis.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Olympia_(C-6)#Armament

With this armament she's still squishy, but has more firepower than an Albany.  A good fit for a T2 or T3 if you buff her armor a bit.

I've advocated for her in either the original config or one of the later refits for years now. I think either could work in game, but if she were in the original config, she'd need a higher than average secondary range for the tier to function IMO.
