Finally got my Cleveland last night

Big ol' fuck you to any carrier wanting to drop bombs or launch a torpedo or two at me.


They usually end up missing with only a plane or two returning.

Yeah both the tier 3 battleships are a pain to grind out.
Both have 9km range only and with the slow reload and manoeuvre means every other ship apart from another T3 BB is going to own you.
Going to be throwing all free xp at them to speed it up.

i find i just get in it and charge the enemy , had more success due to the poor range you had to get close so if you managed to get a salvo off before getting buttfucked by torp bombers you normally could get some decent xp . Then i found salvation in the myogi with 15km guns . Oh it's a joy

I had a coupe of decent 2kish xp (with 1.5x bonus) games in mine but yeah it was very situational and a lot of luck was involved, if you could get a few citadel hits you could wreck people but the guns are so inaccurate it could be pretty painfull waiting 30 to reload after your shots land all around your target at 7km range

First game in 2 weeks and I lasted about 1m...poor old St Louie just ain't got the range to hit the big ships and it's to slow and blind to dodge the torpedo spam that the idiot crew give you 3 seconds of warning about. DD's just seem to get so close before they are spotted and by then they have already fired a salvo of torps..

The trick for those ships is to stay with the herd..... herbavore tactics of safety in numbers.....

Don't venture out on your own and use ap Armour piercing rounds

I love destroyers. I regularly get 3+ kills per round, frequently big ones (BB or CV).

I'm struggling to get huge xp though. Last game I had 4 kills (1xCV, 2 x cruiser, 1 x DD) plus a few planes shot down, and half a dozen HE gun hits and I only got 704xp?

I've had a few 11-1200xp games (with 1.5x) but without killing thw whole team myself, I dont know how to get more?

I am the boss with torpedos though. I just find them really easy to aim and predict which way ships are going. Have had a few LOL point blank torps into battleships as they are trying to swivel guns around.

I'm on WOW NA server (it was the only option?)

EDIT: ginding my way now. Have tier 3 BB, Tier 4 cruiser, Tier 4 destroyer on IJN and T3 destroyer on US

Finding it annoying how only the destroyers are moving off at the start, everyone else just seems to go into a corner and just do circles, 'Hiving' they are calling it. Half the time they just let them enemy team cap the flag. Boats should get damage for going out of bounds, still to many people riding the rails, especially carriers.

I started on NA but had some lag spike issues, switched to SEA and found it much better, 40-80 ping and just as many players although the games have less general chit chat. (not always a bad thing)
