Just got enough to get Paolo Emilio, but even though I am a DD main, I see it as a one-trick pony, so I am working on Slava instead. Not sure if that is right.

Yeah I busted my bank to get both, Slava first...also a one trick pony and highly situational, the Paulo is tricky, one must resist the urge to yolo and wait/set up opportunities to make it work.

Paolo is one of the few things WG has gotten right recently. 

Paolo is unique.

Paolo is refreshing.

And most importantly...

Paolo is fun.

Slava is also a one-trick pony. It's just a different trick.

No, it's not.

Need to get close to use torpedoes doesn't mean you have to or should die for it. Get some one time yolo damage may not be that hard, to influence the battle outcome many other DD trick is needed.

Interesting -  good choice to spread the torps against DD's cause you really only need 1 when their HP is that low.  Gotta remember that one. :cap_like:

 

I would be using SAP though - does more damage in my experience.

 


BTW, for anybody considering this ship, it is an OP god in co-op.  The only thing you fear is the opposing DD's torps.  I'm averaging over 500 realXp.  Prints 200K of credits every time.  If you get less then 100K in damage, it feels like a failure.

Wait for mid game until radar is dead. Before that, cap far caps, spot, and use sap occasionally on dd that shows up. Use clusters of islands to sneak up on people.

I understand the play. I've seen enough of them (got killed by them only once). I am a DD main with a few battles as you can see, so I know what I'm doing.

I do not know Slava at all, and seen/engaged very few, therefore my comment if it is right (or better) to work on Slava (or maybe Ohio but BBs I have plenty and do not interest me), instead. I would be happier with a DD, but not in a hurry to add another one to a zillion collection, therefore the comment. RB is hard to come by and a PITA so I want to be careful on the next choice.
