If I'm ever going to get a model for my display case, it would be of a historic Battleship.

You should split your Cruiser into Heavy Cruiser and Light Cruiser. I consider myself a DD main but do enjoy my CL very much, as well.

Bacon - Frankly, I rotate depending on my moods.  I don't have a preference overall.   If you pinned me into a corner, then maybe DDs.  But....  really, I'm all over.

Destroyers, I thought, but the Advent Calendar says cruisers.

Was RTS carriers in Co-op and Ops; but yeah; WG took that away from me.

’Miss my Strike Bogue’ isn’t my flair on Reddit for nothing.

It's hard to classify cruisers in WOWS because they are so diverse. Some cruisers have big guns and act more like battleships, some outrange even some battleship and are long-range fast gunboats, others are mid-range radar gunboats, a few are nearly as stealthy and as fast as a DD with the torpedos to boot. About the only ship type that some cruiser doesn't mimic is a CV.

Well, the Galaxy class is designated as an exploratory vessel, but that refit is vaguely referred to as a "dreadnought."

Outside of that one mishap in DS9 or a plot device in TNG, they're generally really tanky ships. Hurts them in their Online game because nearly all versions of that hull type in every category lean heavy on the tanky side to the point that they're the least competitive option (for a  99% PvE game) if you care about DPS. 

 

Ask me a year back and I would have said everything cruiser. Well balanced in most things saved their ability to take a hit in some ships. Nowadays I like Battleships most because I can turn my brain off and still come out alright. Or die trying to be my team's decoy or shield. Whichever comes first.

With the ping issues I've been having lately I'll stick with Battleships.

To all:

I honestly do play all classes of ships.  I am definitely better in some than others (I really suck at CV).  I find that if I play my best in the cruiser class that I affect the outcome of the game more than in the other classes.  I have gotten a Kraken and lost, I just today played a game where we had 5 ships left versus one for the enemy team at the end of the match but the other team won because our 2 DDs refused to cap until the end when the game was already over.  We stopped them getting points, but they had a 300 point lead with less than 90 seconds left in the match.  The last remaining ship just hid and we lost. For that reason alone, I play DD and Cruisers to try and prevent people who do not want to win and just pad their stats from costing the team the win.  I actually enjoy playing BB, but it is very hard to cap when everyone can see you and they keep resetting the cap.

Tier V guy here - so things may change dramatically as I advance...

Hard hitting cruisers are my favorite.  The IJN BBs are fun though.

I don't like pew, pew anything.  My accuracy isn't good enough:Smile_veryhappy:  And, slow is simply a no.

Cruisers are my favorite, although there are a few battleships I enjoy playing. (Ishizuchi for example, got my first Kraken with her)
