Yeah .... so I did something really stupid! I never played one game with Italian cruisers before. I just didn't feel they was that interesting. Then I saw Potato Quality's video today about the Venezia and I just Free XP:ed then entire line to T10 Venezia without playing any of the other tiers and this was my first game in it.

 

 

 

I kind of like this ship to be honest !

 

Think this is my new favorite T 10. Was the rest of the line just as good/fun?

A lot of players here have said that the line doesn’t really get good or enjoyable until t8 or 9, but I still found the mid tiers to be a lot of fun. Haven’t played Venezia yet (just unlocked Amalfi), but I’m definitely looking forward to it.

The line came alive at Amalfi for me and just got better from there!

Thanks, then I didnt miss much. I first thought I Free XP to T 8 or 9 but I know how impatient I am and I really wanted to try the Venezia after seeing his video since I feel many cruisers are struggling after the rework.

Pretty much stopped at Montecolliwatzit.

Also have the two Ducas, which I find passable, and Gorizia, which I like.

Have insta-kek’d a number of Venezias in both main modes, enough such I have little faith in them.

Even God's BB with a million armor and laser railguns will still sink to a shima... since the Italian ships are already as heavy as a church....

Can confirm. The guns at mid tiers are like the americans in balistics but the stealth and rudder shift make up for it. I kept the whole line.

Line is irregular both in style and quality.

I love Montecculi (light) but not Trento and Zara (heavies) but enjoyed a lot Amalfi and Venezia is may clan wars ship.

Yeah, line was meh until Amalfi; Brindisi was good and Venezia of course is a beast.  Fragile, being overmatched by 406 and with exposed citadels; but monsters when played well.  I am somewhat excited for the BB line, but am concerned about the combination of short range, bad dispersion, low sigma, and long reloads on their main batteries.  They seem to be giving up an awful lot just to get SAP and all I've seen so far in the dev blog are a series of nerfs - SAP damage reduction, longer reloads, etc.

I tend to do overwhelming well in them for the first 10 - 20 battles, then I unexplainedly have many more bad and middling games and the average comes way down.  I have a special tinfoil hat that keeps the voices out that tell me WG bakes this in with new ships.

No. The line drew heap big vacuum though T7.

Like others have said, the clouds started to break at Amalfi, and things got brighter with Brindisi, finally bursting forth into glorious day with Venizia.

I understand that "possession is 9/10 of the law"...but...

Can I get my hat back dude?

Cool...I put a toxic nerve agent on it (everybody knows "the voices" don't like toxic nerve agents...conspiracy theory 101 there)...

So it looks like I'll be getting my hat back sooner than I thought...

Now... what's best for removing "lick" germs from tin foil?... 🤔

Generally, the Italian cruisers are snipers at mid-long range.  Definitely not brawlers but they punish DDs with a vengeance  using SAP and can also rough up other cruisers and BB's at specific points in battle.   You may like the other tiers.

Right now I cant wait for Italian ZAP BBS, those will be devastating to all ships.

All ships but DDs. Their SAP has been reduced to being less effective against DDs than BB AP: :Smile_facepalm:.

Are people bothering with stealth or going for max sap damage?

I'm spec'd for full out DPM.  That +10% sap damage is nice too.  It's a fast ship so running with higher concealment isn't an issue, especially with smoke.  V gets to decide when it wants to fight or break off and run.  Slapping DE thunderers for 15k+ per salvo is satisfying

I've enjoyed the Italian 'botes.
Raimondo Montecuccoli has been especially fun in Co-op.
Duca D'Aosta and Trento are fun, too.
At some point, I need to go further up the line.  I stalled at Zara and got caught up in other events and ship grinds.
