I bought the USS Boise with the ingame shop 25% discount when buying with gold.

I'm using an 11 point Cleveland captain and so far I find this a good and fun ship to play.

Definatly worth the gold!:cap_like:

They are exactly the same as far as I know. And yes, she's fun - especially in Operations.

I rented it a while back, enjoyed it: but I still don't really care for US cruisers and it didn't seem £25 worth of better than Helena. Perhaps the "spare doubloons" thing of buying from the Armoury makes it an easier sell.

I had quite a lot of dubloons left from last I played and I received 2k or something thereabouts in the super containers. I lacked a crew trainer for CLs so I thought "why the h3ll not?". Tier 7 is the sweet spot to play in IMHO and while the short range and long reload time can be limiting the play style the fast turret rotation and the heal makes up for it I think.

Used to love Helena. Even bought the beautiful community designed camo for her.

Then the rework happened and she now gets :etc_swear: on even by lower tier CVs.

I have that, too. It was a nice ship but somehow New Orleans seems better balanced overall (especially when it comes to making CVs do one). 

 

I do remember that Boise had some nice AA too, but whether or not that still applies... god only knows.
