Stay at mid range...

For AP - look for broadsides same as all 15" high tiered ships

For SAP you can farm even semi angled ones but only to a degree and if the surface is not saturated obviously

Dont expect 2 much carry from her

How do like the Lepanto so far? (Ah, it's Cristoforo Colombo, sorry the annoying Italian in me demanded satisfaction. Just joking 😉.)

I have had worse first battles, the SAP is effective

As I said "a step on the way to the Cristoforo Colombo"

TBF It ain´t no Musashi or Georgia (and not being used to the gamestyle with smoke I would probably have done more damage in a Monarch)

The smoke does come in handy tho

Did 144.5K (141.7K with SAP, rest secondaries) with Cara and killed three, but were almost five ships. Included enemy CV.

 

Still not enough to win as the remaining ships (including our CV) were clueless on how to prioritize and deal with near dead enemies and died one by one.

 

That aside, you aim the SAP high at the upper structure, so near deck height to assure you don’t overshoot and it is usually a guaranteed 7K to 18K hits per salvo, including on German and Russian ships. 4K if you are unlucky.

 

I presume it is no different for the higher tiers. Main issue is that awful range. Especially in high tier matches.

I actually had a very nice game in it. Basically, play it in the 15km range, only have SAP, use the smoke to either get in a good firing position or, better yet, get out of trouble.

A couple of times I thought "I'm done", but that smoke is a game changer if used right. 

Use the speed flag, BTW.

I'm still learning how to play them efficiently but Colombo is very solid and Lepanto is also good. I don't know how they will perform once dead eye is gone though.

Below ss are Colombo in a gold league game today, played three in ranked, all wins so far;

I disliked Caracciolo at first when I used deadeye on it up till early access ended, then did away with the skill(I hate going with the flow anyways) and now I play them my way. 

Within 2 days of casual play, I breezed through and reached Lepanto. Every ship is great. Don't be scared to use the AP - Make sure you have Expert Marksman trained. 

 

This line is freaking amazing and a blast to play. Frankly, I'm in love.

Congrats! You did take a grasp of their meta, apparently. 😉

 

What do you think of the lowers tiers ships?

Playing ITA BB without Deadeye. Must admit: these BB are amazing for capping points.

Thx :cap_haloween:

I initially thought  the T7 capuccino had some weak guns but then the more i played the more i learned about how to play it. Also i have Roma for a long time and it gave me some ideas about how to play new Italian BBs. I'm still learning but imo, it is a good line, somewhat fun like the French BB line. I like the 360 degree turret rotation more than its smoke. If I would ever have to regrind some BB lines, it would be Italian, French and Russian lines considering the fun factor.

Well the Lepanto seems playable... Though the Veneto has got to be the worst ship I have ever played beating the Trento in that regard... My Veneto WR is half that of my Roma WR and it is all due to how inconsistent the guns are, Roma used to be considered having inconsistent guns, but Veneto is on a whole other level... I found that at range there is very little difference between the damage output of SAP vs AP as it more comes down to what RNG says about your dispersion more than anything like aiming and having the correct ammo loaded. Once again an entire line has been ruined by the stupid Gimmick known as SAP, probably the worst designed gimmick in the game at a conceptual level!!! Well at least I suppose with the ships having such inconsistent guns it will mean that player skill in aiming is not a factor so the 40% WR crowd will be able to deal just as much damage per shot as a 60% WR player, only difference being how long they can stay afloat.

 

Thanks WG for once again ruining the Italian ships, they will be spending their time looking pretty in port when I have finished Grinding them...

 

And it is not that I had already pointed out all the stupid designed attributes SAP had when it was first implemented for the cruisers and all my thoughts on it back then have proved correct...

 

PS: The actual hulls on the ships are decent like armour, stealth and manoeuvrability, but the guns make all this invalid as you can't reliably do damage due to all the RNG so you essentially end up with a Gian torpedo with some guns as decoration, when playing Veneto I was jealous of the enemy Gneisenau because he had accurate guns, that were more reliable at doing damage than mine...

Yeah, it is why I decided not to grind that line. I just don't need the aggravation of waiting half an hour for shells and then watching them sprawl around broadside ships at short range. They are lovely on the rare occasions they hit, but on the whole, I prefer ships with more predictable and useful guns. Obvious from this thread, though, that there are people out there finding them amazing.

I like the ship.

Hmm, played a few more matches yesterday.

 

For some reason, most of the players do not really know how to deal with Lepanto. She is just a tank and once really in danger the smoke is the perfect rescue. Makes her much stronger than the German or Russian BBs in close quarters
