So now that the update has been implemented how do our cruiser captains feel that it has affected there performance?

Has it really impacted you badly or do you feel that it wasn't as bad as you thought it would affect you?

I now feel that my Des Moines can actually be good at what it is supposed to be good at, being a floating no fly zone.

It won't really affect anyone at all unless they're the ones who used 155s on the Mogami.

More than that, those captains also had to have the affected captain skills on the 155s with their mogami....

you will notice it when in groups, planes will drop from the sky. Going off solo is still a bad idea and don't expect the changes to save you if you do.

Did someone mention the Mogami?

I only take the Cleveland out for missions so I don't care for her.

The Murmansk can't hit a mountain over her old max range.

Oh yes the Marblehead. She need a buff. But then again she is a mission/retraining ship and she worked for me every time I used a captain that didn't had AFT.

Pre patch, Des moines AA was nothing more than a bad joke. Against T10 planes a DM was lucky to kill two planes before they dropped, even with defensive fire active and full AA spec.

The only ship I actively played that would be impacted was the Mogami but I got to within 15k'ish XP from the Ibukie.  So I will just free XP the remaining bit and retire the Mogami.  Otherwise the changes have little impact upon my CA activity.

Im glad cruisers got nerfed. Maybe now they wont feel like yolo'n in a cruiser pack while leaving the BBs they are supposed to support in the dust to get torped.

 

Now you can get torped directly, no cruisers in the way at all...:teethhappy:

Haha very funny.  On the other hand there is a lot of ppl that would argue that was already the case before the update ;)

You're not going to notice much of a difference unless you had AFT equipped on a light cruiser. And AA apparently got a huge buff, so.....

Only made the fire hose ships get a bit closer to the danger zone to use their fire hose. Other than that, no real effect. Cleveland is still an effective BB roaster. Murmansk is still an effective cruiser murderer. Mogami should have been played with the 203s all along, so it was completely unaffected by the AFT nerf.

I out did a fighter fit US carrier in plane kills with my Myoko earlier. And myoko is not known for AA... I would say AA got a massive buff. of course the poor carrier that wanted me dead kept coming back to attack as soon as my defensive fire cooldown was done, and i kept clearing the sky of his pesky ineffective dive bombers with it. lol
