I thought the De Ruyter was going to be worse than the Phoenix, however I got a clue with the spotter plane. It is a great kiting CA. It does not mean that you won't get smacked. If you keep your distance and angle properly you can survive better. BTW the last battle was a cat rodeo. I could not carry in the match. Still I am impressed with this ship.

She was a pleasant surprise in her tier!

I actually like it quite a bit. The guns are quite comfortable to shoot. No problem landing hits with the spotter up.

Really feels like a T4 Konigsberg.

Man, I think I'm really out of synch with T4... after my thorough experience of just one match, I don't see anything special about it. DPM feels lackluster and it turns like a beached walrus.

What other T4 ships are you comparing it to though?

Probably that's the problem, I don't have a solid memory on how a T4 ship performs... Tho I'm under the idea the cruisers at T4 were more agile (last I played were the French and Italian ones), and my damage was way under my usual avg  at the tier, tbh I didn't see too much performance potential in the ship, just regular meh.

I agree with your take on the agility and DPM, (thus my comparison to KBerg) where it works well for me, is that it has good range for the tier, combined with good ballistics.

This I agree, guns felt very comfortable but the output was low. Tho, 1 match is hardly a thorough experience. I need to give her more chance to shine, I might change my mind.

I found best results not being too agressive.

Shes ok her guns have nice flat arcs, gunnery is easy in her...her AP can hit hard, can rack up lots of citadels on those other tier 4 CLs. She can start fires too. Doesnt seem to be either fast or slow, not super maneuverable but not sluggish,  just right in the middle. Lack of any kind of torps, even russian 4km point blank ones is tough but i guess air strike soon will compensate for that. Whittling down 20k HPs on a highly angled carrier in coop with those little 7 HE barrels takes a while. 

Overall not a bad little boat, Im interested in taking tier 6 and 7 into scenarios to see how they do ...

Nice guns for TIV, yes.

Flaming balloons at TVI, yes. I'll go that far.

WR so far....0%,  but I actually like not having one. If you can't beat em, join em.
