Hello and welcome once again everyone, today's video features the brand new tier 9 heavy Russian cruiser Riga. Riga is now available in early access in 0.9.4 for accumulating enough Soviet tokens and will be fully researchable for all in update 0.9.5.
Riga has some of the most powerful armor piercing rounds of any tier 9 tech tree cruiser with increased penetration, very good shell ballistics and flat shell arcs. All of this combined with very good survivability makes Riga a very powerful cruiser indeed.
As usual I've included the full buid including upgrades and captain skills I was using in this video and the reasoning behind why I do so. I hope you all enjoy the video and until the next time keep sailing it like you stole it o7

I managed to get enough Tokens for the Tallinn and I can tell you it is a strong Ship.

I can´t wait to grind my Way to the Riga and the Petropawlowsk

Riga is strong and I've been fortunate enough to have played a lot of games in the Petropavlosk which is a very good ship indeed.

Why you play the Tallinn to get the xp. Should  cost around 170k xp based off past xp cost expiriences, and she will appear in the tech tree  next patch, 9,6, so if you have the required xp you can research her immediately.

Cheers for the guide dude! Indeed a strong ship tho after playing 13 games I'm struggling with it compared to Tallinn; perhaps it's the recent week of lopsided games or just me misplaying it or both.

 

A particular thing got my attention yesterday: I ended up alone on the flank chased by 2 GKs & 1 Bismarck bow-in mode; not an ideal situation to be in but had to at least slow them down. Long-story short I wasn't able to get any meaningful consistent damage to any of them with AP & HE (no demo expert) from ~14-15km. 90% shatters and AP ricochets while aiming for deck & superstructure, even when they slightly turned. With AP against bow-in GK I understand but I wasn't expecting the HE to be soooo underwhelming. I was basically useless and tried to go undetected and navigate to get to their broadside but it was too late. 

 

Any thoughts around this?
