Italian Cruisers: Branch Review

Oh, dear!

 

A full-on remedial tutorial for the Italian Cruisers. That means that a) they aren't popular, b) they aren't working or c) both.

 

The SAP might end up being popular with the recent buff on the angles of ricochet (we'll have to wait and see) but the mid-tier ships are trash: looooooong reloads, unmaneuverable and fragile.

These ships need substantial buffs, the SAP one announced one week ago is not enough! Give them a Main Battery Reload Booster as their damage is pitiful, the only strength they should have!

@The_EURL_GuyGo on You Tube and read the comments below the video. According to them WE the players, DONT understand how good this ships are. 

Consequently we are all stupids, or this line is really weak (to be polite) compared to all other similar lines.

So, no intention to lower reload and damage on SAP, thus making AP useful and DDs happier?

Okay then...

I was eager to give them a try, so I got me 12 premium containers and got only the Montecrapoli...Bad luck I guess.

And now, after 20ish normal containers, I still have only the Montecrapoli.

 

Thank God you saved me from giving them a try, I might be too dumb to make them work, as you suggest in your video.

 

WeeGee being WeeGee after all.:cap_old:

Besides the Duca D'Aosta I've got the Genova, Raimondo Montecuccoli and the Trento. So far only the Duca D'Aosta is fun to play and competitive, the rest of the line is fun if it's a part of the opposite team. The Genova, currently for free in the campaign or for whopping 14.15€ in the shop, is one of the worst ships I ever had to play. I suggest, players with a team kill penalty should play minimum 10 games with the the Genova instead of marking them pink! The Italian line at this moment is probably the one I'll leave behind without investing time; cleaning the windows of my flat or iron my shirts offers more entertainment than playing this crap. Whoever bought the Genova should be allowed for a refund.

well theyr ok exept i hardly enyoj the Trento who got one of the highest detectability at sea of eny other in its tier of cruisers 14.5.and the Zara is so darn slow that she cant even catch her own shadow and 7 out of 10 games is tier 9 battles i do hope that they will fix the badest isues on the Italians next test round ,like a bit to slow reaload and a way to high detectability.

The Montecuccoli makes the Genova look good!

 

Perhaps a gun upgrade, like some other cruiser lines, might be an option to boost that appalling reload time to compensate for the appalling AP pen and damage.

These Cruisers are definitely the Hawaiian [ham and pineapple] of the pizza world.

Hi Ellerhorst

 

how do you get "The Genova, currently for free in the campaign"?

I got it buying random bundles for tokens, I am curious to know if there was another way

Exchange tokens in the armory for random bundles (the one with the dices and 1/22 next to it).

No, I got her spending the Italian tokens earned in the directives on random bundles in the armory, one of the bundles had the Genova. You can change 70 Italian tokens for one random bundle, I had the Genova after 13 bundles=910 token.

Hmm, I got her in the 19th bundle (of 22). But hey, the coal and special signals were fine too.

 

Btw. I find Montecuccoli far better than Genova (yet still not great).
