My advice is to play everything. Don't aim for T10 but rather learn all the ships in all the classes in all the nations. Play all the T1s, then all the T2s and so on. You will learn more and become a better player + the game lasts longer.

 

Just my two cents. Good luck!

If you are used to battleships the japanese will be the most similar i guess, at least until after nurnberg on the german cruiser line. IJN cruisers are great, i would go for that. Other than that the british are nice, especially the fiji is nice, and i kind of like the russians as well👍

Cruisers fill that gap between the ignominy of a BB dying early and a DD dying first. They are frangilble and exciting, they can turn the game with good old relenting dmg and just as easily die in a devastating strike. British light cruisers are a hoot, followed by JP for solid reliability. After that the French are interesting and the Soviet dull but effective, US to my mind situational to the extreme.

Don't agree with the bolded part. US and IJN are essentially the bog standard heavy cruisers that will teach you how to play kiting cruisers and radar cruisers. If anything the RN are the more situational ones with a higher skillcap. If anything IJN or US should be your starting cruisers if you just want basic cruiser gameplay.

My feeling is that it depends a bit on what you want from the things - if you want something that plays like a faster but squishier BB, perhaps give the US heavies a look (plus cruiser aficionados seem to think highly of the Des Moines - I'm only at T8 with this line, and suck at it).

 

If you're after a different style of play, something with torps might be good; if you want them to be more 'last resort' things, have a look at the KM, or especially the Russians (the latter have the classic Russian 'railguns' which is helpful). Longer range torps means the IJN - you unlock 10 km ones at T5. Those are the obvious 'first picks' for torp lines.

 

The RN CLs are excellent, but very fragile; maybe pick for line two or three (the recently launched CAs are too new to recommend - or not). The Italians are weird (SAP ammo), so probably leave them to last.

 

What others have said about playing lots of different things is very valid though, especially if you've basically only played BBs; it'll give you a better handle on what everything is trying to do, and their vulnerabilities. It's worth giving DDs a lash too, for the same reasons.

This. There is no gold pot at the end of grind rainbow towards T10, but there are increasingly unforgiving maintenance costs.

Cruisers can be fun, but playing them well definitely forces you to look at the mini-map... Many of them seem to be quite squishy, in my experience. Play them wrong, and you are deleted immediately - either by BB's or (especially in higher tiers) by heavy cruisers.

 

Currently I am working my way up in the Russian line to T5. Well, the best thing I can say for today is that I generally did not come in last... and had one good game that could have been very good if I had not messed up my 2nd torpedo launch (a 58k game with an Arsonist) and failed to kill the enemy DD (actually the guy / girl who carried the enemy team game).

Good Advice I think
