Worcester or Mino?

So Im planning to grind a new line and a heavily focused AA ship is something I havent done before. Now that CV is getting more popular, I kinda want to blend in the fun spamming Mino or Worcester. So who would you pick against a heavy CV comp? What are the pros and cons. I appreciate your knowledge.

 

Im picking between these 2, unless ofcourse there is a ship with better AA which I dont know about.

I'd recommend the USN CL line, since it is more forgiving than the British line. You could grind both of them to a T6 though, from there on forward they don't really differ that much compared to their tier 10s imo. At tier 8 USN gets an additional consumable, 9km radar, where the British can swap out their smoke generator for a 10km radar at tier 8.

I dont really care what comes before TX, but thanks for additional info. I also read that Worcester is harder to citadel compared to Mino?

Does smoke reduce your AA?

From what I've read, the Des Moines is considered to be better in most respects than the Worcester and you can get perm camps for the 6-9 in the current event.

Im heavily focused on AA atm. Im fairly positive Worcester has better AA by a mile.

I just realised this is a good time to speed up the grind since captain skills are free now. Anyone know how long this event lasts which grants us free redistribute of commander skills?

Free respec ends... tommorow morning?

For AA purposes, yes and beats Minotaur only by use of DFAA. For more... passive approach (and much less skill demanding ship), Mino is better. For shooting anything on earth, DM.

 

Wooster and Mino can be stalked by Stealth IJN TBs, DM can't.

Can't really go wrong with either. Very fragile ships, the pair of them, though.

Fun fact: CVs will avoid AA ships if there are better targets.

Fun fact #2: Cvs have no trouble sinking AA ships since AA skillz are basically useless against good CV players (only base AA values matter - Mino used to be the only useful AA CL, then it got nerfed)

 

As to the two ships, both are very fun, you can't really go wrong. 

 

Worch is an island-hugger and very map dependent. Still overall it is probably the stronger ship due to having HE and bow armor that dont get overmatched by Henry and various cruisers.

Mino has two distinct playstyles. Radar and smoke. It's very mobile like a big dd and can be a powerful playmaker. Very timing dependent with an extreme skill ceiling. Also can use smoke to lock down a flank. Most fun ship in my port :cap_rambo:

Get a Montana.

Island hugging against reworked CVs is suicide.

Are you longing to spam other players for a particular reason? tough life situation? Poor aim? come on, we want to hear why you decide to go for cancer ships

Des Moines is none the less a really good ship and lots of fun when you get that Unique Module on it.

I don't see how thats an issue, as DM still reigns superb for surface combat AND have nothing to sneeze at AA. Without practice how to Freedom Kruzer it might be tad rough experience.

But then Monty is tad... powercrept in terms of AA. And then you have Justin Beiber... err Jean Bart.

You can say the same for any ship, if you find CV players speschul enough.
