First you need a good English breakfast tea, to make you alert and nimble. Preferably a blend of Assam and Ceylon. Second you train a Captain with advanced firing training. Thirdly you charge down these pesky destroyers then you open fire. --> Profit!:izmena:

Wait....what....Can't tell if truth or sarcasm. Is this reality...or a fantasy

 

It's true. If you count secondary HE.

It was the one hit from the secondary battery that got you that Fire ribbon, wasn't it.:trollface:

 

It is all skill, no luck :playing:

I'm running a partial secondary brawler build for Edinburgh. 3 close quarters expert achievements already. :)

I thought of this as well but how do you overcome the lack of armor? Any astray AP shell may kill you. :unsure:

Tier 6-8 have amazing armour! Most AP just overpens and you can bounce a lot off your belt. They get the best heal in the game, have great torpedoes and can hide in smoke if it all gets too much.

 

They're mental brawlers.

 

Look at the average damage it takes to sink my Edinburgh.

Actually, the secondary guns are not controled by you so it's all luck and no skill. :trollface:

 

Actually they shoot often enough to produce a decent sample size for their randomness, so it's just stochastics no luck.

funny thing... saw one guy testing perth (aka leander class cruiser). asked if it has HE. answer was yes...

 

so what is the lesson learned from this? if you want HE on RN ships, buy premium. people wanted RN for so long, so they might as well dish out the cash.

Fiji and Edinburgh will be nerfed hard over the next few months, enjoy them whilst you can :great: (or buy balanced Belfast..)

But HMS Belfast doesn't have heal. Or torpedoes.

You've got to sacrifice something in order to prevent the ships from becoming OP.

HMS Perth could get the same deal.

As you have only AP rounds for the Leander, what do you recommend for the Captain's skills on line 4 ? usually, a good one is Demolition Expert but will that work with AP?

If that is no good I was going with Survivability Expert ?

Would recommend AFT. SE is useless on anything that isn't a destroyer really.

Aha oh yeah the secondaries fire HE

 

So what we have with the brit cruisers then are suicide ships that need to get close enough to fire secondaries before they blow up? Sounds fair, I like.

It's the Invasion of the Bodysnatchers / Stepford Wives on World of Warships.

 

The British cruisers may look like actual real life British cruisers, but they don't play in any kind of historically accurate way. They play like some kind of made up Wargaming fantasy.
