Hello again, captain indecisive here. I ground through Harugumo again and now I have enough RB points for Paolo Emilio or Siegfried. I’m not interested in Slava or Colbert. If you were in my position who would you choose?

Got the Siegfried. Turrets are so slow that I can't use it as a battlecruiser (open sea engagements with a lot of dodging). And doa 180 turn, and you'll be ready to engage when the game is over. So she's a port queen. Paolo Emilio looks real fun as it's so fast. I wish I had picked PE over Siegfried. Will get the PE next (or Ohio).

Before the captain rebork Sigfried was fun as a full secondary meme boat. Now it's just a meh super CA 

I don't  have the Yolo, and likely won't get her.

I would not spend RB points on Sigfried now.

If it were me I'd get the Yolo Emilio. Siegfried probably took the biggest hit of any ship from the rework, losing both survivability and secondaries. Emilio is definitely different, and requires good situational awareness to pull off proper ambushes. But when it works it's a ton of fun. I can see how it just may not work for some people though.

That said, you are not me. So I guess it depends on whether you think you want a light cruiser strapped to a rocket or an overgrown heavy cruiser.

May I deduce from your failure to mention the Ohio that you already have her?

My first RB ship, when I get there, will be the Emilio. I was about to FXP my way to her through the gunboat line until Smaland was announced as leaving, upon which I spent my FXP on that.

UNLESS... unless they make the upcoming Vampire 2 for RB points. Then some harsh decision making will be necessary.

Yes I already have Ohio. As for Vampire 2 I’m just hoping it’s for FXP.

I'm praying for coal here. 2M FXP is something I'd rather not do three times, but the ship has sentimental meaning (I'm Australian, and I've been on her decks as a visitor) and I will if I really have to.

Otherwise I'm probably going to grab Friesland the instant I hit 1 million and just play through the IJN gunboats for whatever RB ship most takes my fancy.

No doubt at all, Paolo is probably the most fun ship there is in this game

I have Siegfried and never really use it, I want Slava next but if Slava wasn't a choice I would get Paolo. I already have Ohio.

Ended up going with Paolo... now comes the tough part of how to build her.

Watch every damn Youtube video there is out there, question the owners in comments, and mix their advice in a blender with a healthy dash of your own playstyle.

Add salt to taste. :Smile_trollface:

If I have to choose between the two it'll be Paolo. Siegfried has insufficient armor and it lost the secondaries basically, it'll still be a top pick when there are 3v3/4v4 clan brawls but other than that...

 

Paolo is fun and a well played Paolo can create havoc pretty easily.
