Ok, so I won't tell one of my silly stories as some Captains don't seem to like them. I'll just jeep to the facts.

Hello Captains! Hope your Happy Healthy and safe.

Today I took my Tier 7 Abruzzi out [ first time in awhile ] into a Random game. She has 9.7 detection and 12 k torps, slow but they keep the enemy BB's guessing and keeps them from charging so hard. For those who have this ship it is wonderful to play. No, it doesn't hit hard but it consistently hits. If you use the small islands for cover you can really be a pain to the enemy and remember to launch your torps as soon as they are reloaded. Makes them always wonder about torps as they try to navigate, spot and shoot. Abruzzi can take some hits and survive IF you keep turning and twisting. She is Great at wrecking DD's as my game shows. Find a position and be a pain to the enemy. It however is a ship you cannot relax your brain with in a battle as you can with some others. Keep aware at all times and use that mini map. An Italian BB tier 7 with a good Captain helped me a lot in the end. We killed 7 all together with me getting 3 smooshes! and an Arsonist on Andria Doria. Um, he was salty about my HE spam and hiding from him. Lol. Anyway the satisfaction after a great game is Wonderful. Play her and Have fun! 

Until next time, Happy Smooshing!

Heidi.

I agree.  I have the Abruzzi and it really is sneaky good.  There are several good ships in the RM that do not get a lot of attention.

The surpriser for me has been the T6 Duca.

Oh how I hated it back when it came out.

Not that bad now.

I know! And the tier 5 Monty is not bad either but you are exhausted after a good game playing it.

You gotta work hard with the Duca, but she's fun and a challenge.  I have her totally decked out as a torp boat...amazing how that works out.

No! Please tell the stories! I can't play right now on account my right hand is tango uniform. Medical. I need something to pass the time and stories are better than the toxic stuff of legend in here. 

Don't let these goons bring you down. 

Feel free to elaborate. No, this is not sarcasm. I am serious.

Stories. Need stories. 

If they hate it, just post in misc. and leave note. I don't care how you do it. Battle fun is fun. That was a great battle! Great job!:cap_rambo:

Typing sucks. Please don't make me ask again. No pain meds, argh!

Italian ships are entertaining and fun to play, especially when pushing them to their limits.

Did they do something to it to tweak it, or did your expertise catch up and mesh with the ship's skill floor?

Kinda the same thing with New York...

’God, this thing sucks.’

Two, three years later...

I have both Ducas and Abruzzi is the one with the most plays of all my ships. It was the first premium I ever got :) I’ve always liked it, but I’m not good with it, as it is a citadel magnet and you need to stay at distance. It has great consumables but if one could get the option for smoke it’d be a real menace.

I do way better in Leone. Weird, but true. It just seems to click with me.

Really a good point. I want to play fun ships and every Italian so far seems to fit that. How good some of them are is another matter entirely. But there are gems there.
