I don't know about the other nations cruisers but the US and German cruisers suck!! You don't dare get within range of an enemy BB because you are guaranteed to blow up with one or, at most, two broadsides! It is almost impossible to fight more the one enemy DD at a time for the same reason.

​Nothing new. cruisers of any nation aren't meant to go broadside. Trust me, you never want to show your broadside when a BB is shooting you.

Over 2,300 games played and you still haven't learned not to show your broadside to a battleship in a cruiser?:facepalm:

 

Working as intended comrade​! It's not the ships, rather it's the captain not knowing how to cruiser.

Well to be fair, at high tiers ships like the Yamato can hit you for multiple citadels at all angles.

Well the value of not being broadside is more than just angling the armor however weak it is, broadside presents the largest target to a BB's high dispersion shells. Sailing straight on or away at an angle is like a triple threat, you could go left, right, or keep on course at a moments notice not caught in a predictable course.

Don't go broadside onto a BB.

 

Unless you are a Russian cruiser because the hand of Stalin will swat shells away from your citadel :trollface:

Who said anything about going broadside to broadside against a BB? Most of the time I am trying to get out of range when, from 15-20 km away, some BB drops a load on my poor cruiser and that results in a quick sinking.

Tough to be a Cruiser these days .. the BBs at higher tiers load fast enough that you may not be completed your turn when he fires, not looking good for your survival
