Hi,

Thought I would post these for those of you that haven't had a chance to see these yet.

Looks like Wg is trying to do something similar to the British line IE. make them unique and a different style of game play which personally im all up for.

No HE ladies and Gents instead we have SAP (semi armour piercing) and a moving smoke generator similar to the Perth but faster as it can be deployed at full speed and still conceal the ship?!!

Oh and there is a sneak peek a the tier X Italian Destroyer too..

Let me know you opinions and feelings and how they might work in the game. Do you like what you see so far?

With 40 sec duration and 3 minute cooldown even with premium consumables. And 3 charges with superintendent. Considering their low ROF it is sutational at best, but it might change who knows.

True. There are only a finite number of times you can effectively run away with that smoke though. Still it is an interesting consumable I will give them that.

I think that's the idea....those citadels being so exposed if you do a runner from a hot situation your gunna need cover lol

Ballistics seem quite good, high velocity with little to no drag although as he said not sure when and how effective the new SAP will be .....And very quick speed like 35+ kts - in principle I like what I see so far.

Nah mate if they'd actually do that they need tugboats that have fuel

or add a harbour to every map so they can sit there. 

 

Looks like I might like 'em though, I also like RN cruisers. :Smile_hiding:

Their playstyle is much more active than the RN cruisers.

Yeah but with them player will have to THINK which is better ammo type to use in certain cases and aim at different parts of ship to actually do damage.

Which will be hard for majority...:Smile_trollface:

Or you could just load SAP and do 25k salvos on demand to any target (except DDs) from max range as long as you aim for the upper belt with the tier 10... :fish_palm:

Just tried the Montecuccoli's SAP on a Kirov at point blank range.
54mm pen, couldn't for the life of me citpen one of the weakest belts and most vulnerable citadel in the game.

I'm not sure why I would bother with that, and sacrifice 50% of my reload speed, when HE does similar damage, no chance to ricochet, doesn't have a damage cap on DD, and sets fires.
I'm getting the worst of both AP and HE worlds, with added nerfs on top.

 

There's no point in letting the public play (after grinding quite a bit) WIP stuff if it's barely functionnal.

AH goody, hope I can pass the "sit still in smoke and go dakka" bit then. 

I always get bored. Move + dakka is more what I like (sometimes I even forget I have smoke).

Uhm no cause Italian smoke is 40 sec only but has great feature - you can go full speed and be concealed. Which means of there's too hardcore situation you can run away being undetected and shoot.

They really need to sort this ammo crap out, this line is too important to get f-ed up WG, really... 

 

Just give the s-AP gimmick to the RM BB line (change Roma as well) next to normal AP and tweak them accordingly AFAIK that was the historic god damn ammo setup in a BB anyway and make the cruiser line fire normal HE/AP shells, HE shells can have more alpha and less fire chance or something and with that smoke and no hydro its enough of a trade off and gimmick-ing

Nah they don't change the premiums in that way.

Jest like Aigle won't get MBRB.

Gallant didn't get the RN DD smoke nor the hydro

LoYang has its own hydro and USN smoke and normal torps

Anshan has Russian smoke and normal torps too

So they won't change the Italian premium cruisers nor the Roma.

I was wondering this.

Being that the Italian line will be so different to the existing Italian premium ships, I was thinking that by the end they will be a million miles away from them in play style as they will have

1. totally different ballistics 

2. No smoke

 

Surely they would contemplate bringing these in line eventually to match the rest?
