So sneaking up on my next coal ship and I really am not that excited about my choices.

So down to:

Neustrashimy

Marceau

Z-44

Flint

Any opinions or recommendations?

Flint for Narai! A money maker in every sense of the word. I have the others but don't play them much - not even in Coop.

Hmm that is interesting. I do not play operations very much. Maybe that would be a good way to jump into them.

Fly all them economic flags and rake in the credits, Free XP, and ECXP. The rewards were nerfed a couple of patches back but Narai, if played well, can still bring better than most Random and Ranked battles because you can easily accrue so much damage.

Do you still earn more in OP's when you factor in the time? How long does the average OP take?

Atlanta would be a better option given built-in range buff, but Flint can certainly kill things quickly.  

To the OP, I wouldn't recommend Flint if you already have Atlanta.  Of the destroyers, Neustashimy would be my choice.

Narai is around 15 minutes in almost all cases.  I'd guess that is a little longer than the average random match.  The nice thing about Narai is that its fun because once you know the op it can be a reliable source to farm, but still with enough challenge to keep things interesting, that will keep you farming for a while.  I'd also agree with Hampton that the Atlanta is probably better than Flint now.  If Flint gets the range buff than it is a bit better with its longer ranged torps and the smoke if you end up needing it in an emergency.

IMHO Flint is a blast for straight up CoOP as well as Narai; rush in, smoke up and set everything in sight on fire, torp anything that doesn't burn. :Smile_izmena:

Hmm... OK I really need to check out ops.

It is also by a large margin the most expensive. So maybe just get it out of the way. But I like what I have heard with the idea of Flint.

Unless you want to break into gunboats based on your history and love of torp boats (peaked at your stats) , you might enjoy Neustrashimy  the most.  IF you do want to do a bunch of open water gunnery  then the Marceau  is a must have IMO. 

 

Only drawback with the Neustrashimy is that there wouldn't be a tech tree boat the same captain can go into. Though ofcourse with the new skill trees you can move one in from a different line of ships.

I don't have flint....or atlanta...somehow, but OPs really is great resource.  I grind all lines T6-7 in operations only.  Outside of that, they are fantastic FXP/CXP because it is very often a win and much more XP than coop.

Once you really learn them, you will be able to figure out how to squeeze every single XP out of them on a ship by ship basis, because in many cases, you know exactly what is spawning next, when, which direction it will be facing etc.  So you can stack on all your best flags and camos, and know it's going to pay out.  At least a lot better chances of a win than random anyway.

While I don't have flint, I know people like it a lot for doing the transports in Narai, which is some of the best XP in that operation.  You don't "need" flint or atlanta to do it all, nearly any cruiser will do, but premium ships and all that.

Yeah I do play everything but I think I enjoy the torp boats the most. They feel like what the original DD concept was meant to be.

Most Ops run the full length of time - and usually more than 15 minutes. I can see where you might get two ranked battles in for one Op and accrue more "stuff" if you did the same level of damage. @HamptonRoads and @Slimeball91 are right that Atlanta may be the better ship after the skills rework.

Good luck with your choice!
