Please help me. What ship should I buy first with coal? Salem or Yoshino? 

 

I don't have DM researched yet. Worcester is my only tier 10 cruiser yet. 

 

I would also like to play ranked with them, so I guess Salem would be better in ranked? I managed to get rank 5 last season. 

 

Also, I don't know yet when Yoshino will be sold. The problem is that I want ships with unique playstyle and Salem seems too similar to the DM. 

 

Thx!

Salem is worst DM for competitive play. basically those 2 ships are the same, DM having longer range radar, Salem having better heal.....all other things are almost the same.

 

definitively identical play style.

If you want a unique play style, I would suggest yoshino over salem/dm. 

I didnt play yoshi yet but from what I've seen it is a bit different from the existing supercruisers with a playstyle like the zao. 

 

Salem is definitely not worth the coal since it has a better tech tree counterpart.

Yoshino

 

The Salem is basically a DM and you can allways grind that one out in game. Right now there are no "Supercruiser" that you can grind for.

Flamu calls the Yoshino basicly a Super-Ibuki. If that sounds appealing to you (kiting away and spamming HE all game),  wait for it.

Yoshino isnt final yet, so it may become stronger/weaker before its out.

 

Playstyle should remain the same tho, so if you want a kiting cruiser, its probably the one you want.

That is really good on it. But the coal price doesn't justify it imo. And wasting a coupon on it also seems like a bad idea. But if you over 500k coal(like me #humbleBrag) might as well spend it. :Smile_Default:

Yoshino.

Supercruisers are better than everything else in this game.

And yet they are all rendered obsolete by ultimate supercruiser, Missouri:Smile_trollface:

InB4 rendered obsolete by supercruiser Slava!:Smile_hiding:

 

Also @OP,  if you plan to reach Rank 5, Salem can work, but Worchester much better, it is the 2nd/ 3rd best Ranked cruiser (Mino #1, Henri/Wroch as #2, rest are CV food)

Yoshino pis the better pick.

Yosi , its unique japanse T10 , its nothing special and will certianly not replace Zao / Stalingrad in any mode, but the Salem is a downgraded Des moine, and the Des is free to grinde unlike the Salem which is a wooping 180k coal with cupon. Get the Yosi , grinde the Des save your self the headache.

I don't think so.

 

Salem zombie heal is massive boon for straight up shoot them up gameplay. And while she lacks DM Radar, she can equip DFAA and Hydro at the same time, unlike Des Moines. And with Year of the Carrier upon us, I'm not sure I want to part ways with at least something AA related.

Salem just seems like a better des pemes at this point. Yoshi i have no clue, if shes like the azuma giant wet paper bag i probs won't bother.

 

Amazing that it takes this long for wargaming just to add a bunch of ships to their bloody arsenal/armoury or whatever it is called now.

I bought it right away back then when i had the coal (with coupon, since i didnt have steel back then). Havent played it THAT much, but its had its uses (farm some missions in coop, tiny bit randoms, bit ranked/CBs).

I think tho, a small radar buff would be nice after the concealment nerf, atleast 9km imo...

Dont use coal on much other stuff than ships, only finished the Bismarck and Vive la france collections. Now at almost 200k, waiting for yoshino :cap_viking:

Umm, its British heal, also known as lol heal, zombie heal, restoring up to 48% hp assuming India Delta flag is on.

Still Mo will make twice more credits with just a quarter of the damaged scored by Kremlin.
