Simple question: Which of the two ships, Baltimore and Buffalo do you prefer as the tier 9 USN CA? Why?

 

(I know Baltimore had its stats changed several times, but I mean the ship in its final T9 iteration before demotion to T8)

I like the Buffalo better. Never felt quite comfy in T9 Balti although she could deliver stellar impact on a battle from time to time. No such feelings with the Buffalo.

Also 12 freedom shells per salvo is amazing.

I really liked Baltimore at tier 9, but I don't feel like Buffalo is that different tbh. Slightly worse turning due to being longer, but a heavier salvo. It's a toss up for me.

I like the long duration radar on the Buffalo combined with the high alpha damage.

 

It still gets whacked down by BB's very quickly if you make any sort of mistake in it, or if you just get unlucky with RNG - just like any tier 9 cruiser.

In isolation I'd say Baltimore, but as part of the  tree I prefer Buffalo. 

 

Baltimore was always something like a poor man's Des Moines,  and while good not very interesting. The tree played pretty same from old New Orleans to Des Moines.

 

Buffalo has a pretty different feel compared to the others,  and that's nice.

Stock, it's Buffalo definitely.

 

Fully upgraded, I feel like the Balti was better. Buffalo has barely better DPM and is less maneuverable, worse concealment and much worse if only front guns are available. I feel like you go from T8 Balti to T9 Buffalo with the theoretical upgrade of going from 3 to 4 turrets  (an otherwise common way to go up a tier in this game) but the reload drops to the point where you gain very little from it.

 

Idk. Maybe I just need to l2p a bit in her. I am a bit disappointed though.
