When Your Good Your Good! Brushing Off The Des Moines For Brawls...She Still Rocks and Owns Face

It's one of my favorite things to do about once a week is to dust off a ship I haven't played in quite some time. I stole the Captain off of the Des Moines a while back so she has just been sitting in port for a couple of months. All I had that wasn't in another ship I mainly play was a 14 pointer sitting in reserves. I threw him in the DM and went out to play in Brawls. I must say, this old girl still has some pep in her step. She can dish it out with those quick reloading guns and she takes a surprising number of hits if you angle her just right. Now don't get me wrong, BB's still chip off her health pretty good but you can survive a long time if you know how to dodge, weave, speed up and slow down. She also can hit back pretty hard with the AP and sets lots of fires with the HE. I mean look at that 11 fires this game alone and that was with only 5 ships to shoot at. Lol, I love setting a fire and then switching targets to set another. Then I target the first ship again just as he uses his Damage Control and I light him up again. She's a lot of fun. 

Only 5 ships on the enemy team and I managed to get at least a couple hits on every one of them. Such a blessed ship but with only the 14 point captain, I'm afraid she is going back to port for a while until I get around to leveling him up to at least 19 or 20. So many ships to choose from these days and always missions to be done so it's hard to find the time. 

If you haven't played DM in a while then dust her off and have a bit of fun.

Well you can add the Republique to tonight's fun as well. Although she has always been one of my favorite ships to play. All AP with her on this one, I think one of my secondaries started a fire but her AP rocks. Look at that 140k of my damage done was with the AP shells. I picked on that Montana from the beginning when I got a citadel at max range, then another and then another lol. The other day I got a citadel on a GK with the Repub at max range.

Des Moines for me is like sailing a glass ship with good acceleration (Unique Upgrade), and more emphasis in dodging versus angling. As you get so many shells that could overmatch her hull now.  Which in turn, makes the ship more challenging, but fun at the same time.  As she makes up for this with good fire rates, and AP USN bounce angles.  However, when caught out not paying attention of the flow of the game.  You can easily get 'stuck' and then it's up to the OPFORs ability to sink you, and you trying to mitigate the damage by WASD + WS keys.  Which you know is just a matter of time until she sinks.

 

For me, I haven't been able to play the Republique to her full potential yet.  Any tip and advice would be appreciated.
