Bapedi bopidi!

Key characteristics for the cruiser will be high manouverability (compared to other ships of similar size), no HE shells (Semi Armour Piercing shells instead), longrange but low speed and damage torps, no hydro/DFAA/radar consumables but instead they get the fuel smoke consumable (creeping smoke capable of hiding the ship even at full speed).

 

For more informations, watch the current WoWs Community stream, they've accounced the italian cruiser line (up to tier VII, hightier ships will be revealed on the RU stream tomorrow).

 

They also teased an italian tier X DD whose gameplay concept was proposed collective by the CCs during their summit. Crap ballistics but SAP shells (good damage up close), lots a torps (I counted 3x5 torp mounts, one wingmounted per side and one centerline), characterized as a flanking ship. Will go through several testing phases yet so no ETA a release yet, probably going to be premium (bit deflective answer from MrConway during the stream when asked if techtree or premium).

Bolzano is IMO the most beautiful of the build Italian cruisers so that would be awesome.

-no HE

-sAP, which according to Devblog has no improved bounce angles

-no hydro

-no defAA

-gimmick smoke

-long reload, high alpha

-Italian 12 km meme torps

I do hope there'll be changes during the development, because I cannot see this work out. Gimmick smoke is not a replacement for hydro, their AA is Italian, so piss poor, having to rely on these torpedoes to deal with anything that rushes you angled is just silly and Zara at T7 would neither get torpedoes nor anything beyond 25 mm armour, so, well...

 

Time to get drunk and hope WG comes up with solutions that work. But given the record... yeah, time to get wasted.

should be a good counter to tier 5-6 cruisers + Atlanta, Belfast, Flint, US CLs and RN cruisers, unless I'm totally off mark.

Yorck and Myoko have basically what passes as good T7 cruiser armour (and what Zara might get), have already good damage per salvo, have no issues citpenning other cruisers, get a hydro (Yorck gets German hydro) and torps. Zara gets what? A lulzy smoke?

Forgive me, but I don't like the fact that you started this thread in such a manner. Could you please at least remove the image? Thank you.

Zara at Tier 7 is a major disappointment to me. The nerfs she now has to go through to stay there and not be OP will be much more than the buffs she would've needed to be competitive at Tier 8.

Also, I find it pretty dumb to have two Italian BBs (with historical loadout of AP and SAP shells) having AP and HE, and now a cruiser line (with historical loadout of AP and HE shells) having AP and SAP shells. The world is really functioning in reverse... go, WG!

Belfast and rest of Tea cruisers would have a word with you:cap_hmm:

Considering her 4x2 layout and her historical reload rate: no.

They will probably need to improver her to make her competitive....

Sorry, I forgot to specify that I was talking about buffing her to make her competitive at Tier 8.

But still, she would've needed less effort in that direction than the effort to nerf her to make sure she's not too powerful at Tier 7. You can ask @phoenix_jz about that, he has explained that well.

 

Also, forgive me, but it's utterly pointless to cite historical RoF, considering that few ships if any ended up with that, it's one of WG's favorite soft stats to balance ships.
