fun to shoot at since guaranteed citadel with every salvo you launch at one... but being on the receiving end of the same not so much.

and with that main gun traverse speed, you cant even fire and manoeuvre. to try and off set the weakness.

 

is this things 'gameplay' style supposed to be "camp behind island and hope for cv"?

because right now i feel like selling and never bothering with the us cruiser line.

Pepsi has always been that way, was probably worse at T7 as you had more BB predators...

 

It's one of the lol mid tier cruisers that can easily die in 1 salvo of BB AP so people fixate onto them when they're spotted. Same with the Budy.

Island rape is the present and future of WoW gamplay, more to come, so either get used to it, or rather quit and save yourself. Because once you switch lines, you will hate to be on the recieving end even more since you wont be able to shoot back.

Oh damn, a T6 cruiser that reacts poorly to being shot at. Sounds like almost any other T6 cruiser. So, tell me, what other T6 cruiser can boast the same devastating salvo?

I have been having the completely opposite experience. Pensacola right now is ridiculous: it's a T6 ship that can blast BBs like Kongou for 10k+ damage salvos, has amazing turret angles allowing it to do well against cruisers if you angle your armor, and can blap other cruisers with boatloads of citadels because of its american piercing shells.

Half the battle with Cruisers is keeping guns silent and getting into favourable positions.

 

Obviously if you fire first then every red BB is going to lock onto you and no matter how much you dodge, something is going to get you...

is the new orleans even worth the grind, or is it more of the same?

No. It loses the firepower advantage. Pepsi has 10 guns vs Aoba's 6. NO has 9 vs Myoko's 10.

Yeah, the ship with 10 improved USN 203mm AP salvo with great firing angles, more penetration than other 203mm below tier 8 a quick rudder, good range, very good AA for that tier, and quite a bit of health is totally going to have no chance at T6.

 

:Smile_sceptic:

 

The Pensacola could be T4, and people would still complain that's it's weak because you eat citadels if you go broadside.

Myoko struggles to get most of them on target, though. That's a big broadside to show just to get two more guns firing. 

 

I'm looking forwards to Pensa at VI, should make quite an impact if played well...

with the turd and nerfed never what you say it's been more true.

I don't think the turd can do in t6 what it did in t7.

Or have to be even more cautions than before.

Even with upgraded guns + that hull, it's bad.

with the stock guns... well...

that it's also very true...if the transverse turret speed was remotely decent as well as the reload.

 

with the turd you can shoot or manoeuvre, not both, as soon you touch the rudder the guns go silent, and God forbid if you decide switch your guns side to side, the game will be over before they are ready to fire again.

 

But, for me, I prefer furutaka.

If you liked the turd you will love Myoko.

Better overall ship of the two with more or less the same problem but I would say more tanky.At least you'll put on fire everything you fire upon.

yea. if the traverse was at least fast enough to let you keep on target i would find this ship average. but as it is, its traverse feels like a t3 dread. since you are forced to either stop firing to evade, or go half rudder+half speed to keep firing the same way.

 

i feel like taking out my nooberg and killing NOs for the crime of existing.

Molotov's railguns seem to have better penetration after 9km and certainly trajectory to hit from any range.

Isn't the problem more like that those sides aren't weak enough to let APs through without arming their fuze?

Camo and the acceleration boost module will help, then you turn the ship to aim the guns, like Queen Elizabeth. Steer an S shaped course and you can dodge and keep up an impressive artillery barrage.

Honestly new Pensa is hilarious. If she had better turret traverse as well as better MM she'd be OP.

Pensa is strong as hell!

 

Is she squishy? Yes!

 

Will she eat citadels when something looks at her? Yes

 

Is that different from other T6 cruisers? Largely no! Most T6 cruisers are squishy and eat citadels. But only few cruisers have the AP punch.

 

So yeah, learn her differences and play her to her strengths. Like any other ship.
