The point behind the RN CA's is that you use your armor efficently in combination with your heal. Its not an line thats easy to play well but the CLs arent that easy either. 

I enjoy them and looking forward to T8+ i already knew many people will complain about a line which is either not completely broken or/and has some amazing new gimmicks. 

The early heal with a combination of good deck armor as well as good AP and HE  as well as good concealment makes them efficently as support cruisers in the beginning of the battle and the further the games goes they will become better in pushing flanks especially the Drake and Goliath with their superheal. 

 

Tl;dr: Not easy to play but a good-, interesting- and balanced addition to the game and a ton of fun when mastered.

Let me translate:

 

Royal Navy cruisers are all like Mogami but with less armor. 



What is the point of adding a ship line outmatched by anything in the game already? 

Aren't they testing ships at WG? I see no point why these ships were added to the game.

 

I felt about Italian cruisers the same way until I understood them.

"Heavy" in heavy cruiser refers to guns bigger than 155mm, not armor plating:cap_tea:

If they are EarlGrey infused does that mean they have extra salt and Twitter troll rage ability :Smile_trollface:

If you like the IJN playstyle you should deffinetly try the french cruisers. They are most underrated but insanely good kiting cruiser and damage machines.

As I'm finding out the hard way.

 

Don't rush towards caps at start. Gentle half speed, angled, towards cap.

 

Fire around 12-14km from target

 

Only fire angled. Don't turn away if you come under fire. Bow on is not advisable either. 

 

That should keep you going for 10mins :cap_haloween:

Ok, Drake is fine. 20 fires directive mission accomplised with 5 seconds to go as a bonus.

Which tier are youon? The Drake is a beast. The armour seems decent and the heal is great. The amount of times I’ve been able to bounce shells by angling or using the 30mm deck which is a typical for tier. I really frustrated a Jean Bart yesterday on my way to a kraken.

 

Goliath looks just as strong if not stronger. All mid tier cruisers are squishy but most do not get a heal.

I don't like the front citadel shape, you can receive huge damage from high caliber BB even when angled. Also i feel it as another buff to ships like the Kremlin, while the Montana is less and less appealing after each release :/

Like the Italian Cruisers the only issue with the RN CA's appears to be that brain.exe is required
