Hello, a quick question.
Does Salem have better economics compared to DM with premium camo?

Which one would you say is the better ship in general?

Yes it does have better credit income.

 

Des Moines is the better ship, atleast for competative. The 10 km radar allows des Moines to cover caps from behind islands, Salem cannot do this, thus salem is useless in cb for example. I'm sure the stronger heal could make salem work in random, but it will never be good in competitive.

On the economics, Salem has half the repair cost of the DM plus its camouflage but from what I hear it’s a better camouflage than DMs

Wrong.

 

Very good in CB’s. 5 games, 4 good wins and the lost game I kept my star.

Yeah, I mean it's still mostly a des Moines, so it will be great at holding islands. 

 

In cb tho, you really need the 10km radar range, so salem doesn't work. 

 

Even in ranked, I'm sure the salem is still strong, but I doubt it would ever outperform a des Moines because of the lacking radar range.

In ranked I’m finding that Heal very useful. Especially in 1 v 1 fights or late game cap brawls. Though my personal sample size and skill level are subjective at best.

It’s not a significant difference between Salem and DM with 5k dub camo. Salem isn’t gr8 at making credits, T9 premiums are for that.

The camo bonuses are identical. It may be visually beter though (well, it is for sure superior to my eagle camo on DM, I hate that bird with a passion).

0.5 km difference in range, and big difference in playstyle capabilities as Salem is more tanky than DM and on the side with economy factor.

Its quite obvious who is the winner here.

Des Moines provide better utility and flexibility

Salem provide more survivability. 

 

In general they earn the same but DM is better of hurting DDs while Salam is better at harassing capital ships due to dpm/survival combo. 

 

It depends on the play stile but as WeeGee announced in their video 50% dd hp worths same as 50% bb hp... It's obvious which is easier to do with which ship.

Since grinding the DM LM I've barely played Salem - Salem is a great ship, don't get me wrong, and the superheal is massively useful, but he ship handling improvements have made DM my favourite ship. It's basically now an RN CA.

You don't, but if you bothered to continue reading the thread you'll realise I made an error and noted it. But hey, there will always be pedantic holes on the internet.
