the USN cruiser is just so lame after cleveland, cleveland is a awsm ship, but after I unlocked Pensacola, I feel like USN CAs have no point for me to play with, the AA is bad, the guns are 2 times worse than the IJN ones (even the cleveland, IDC what 8 inch guns bla bla bla, damage is low as FK)

 

armour..... umm... not really.

 

and everytime I play this ship, defensive, offensive, surprise attack, all fail.

 

I never saw anyone playing USN mid-high tier CA anymore, just a few, no tier 7-8 CA video, all of those are from IJN.

is these two ship really that awful to play with? am I going to grind all again with my Furutaka?

the only ship that the higher tier AA is lower than the lower tier counter part is. Myoko to Mogami,,

myoko has better AA than mogami.

as for USN. as u rack ur tier. u get more and more powerfull AA. saying pensa got worse AA than cleve is such a joke :popcorn:

Actually, Pensa has worse AA than Cleve. Take a look at the stat before saying someone is wrong. It was not the "tier" that matters, the year which the ship was launched matters. Latter the ship was launched, better the AA. Pensacola-class was launched during the 20s while Cleveland-class was launched during the War.

Pensacola is already good in her own way. just every 16" or higher caliber will get to your citadel at any angle. everything except for having paper armor and being torp less is great

Myoko got 2x better fire power than the pepsicola? pepsi can fire all her gun almost all the time with that fire arc while myoko have to deal with that rear facing front turret. plus pepsi's turret turn much faster. I have no problem dealing with cleveland when pepsi. cleveland can't hit you at long range while you can hit him from there.Yes, armor is paper but myoko aren't that much better. How to play her? just don't pick a fight with BB when you have no support. you can fight another cruiser toes to toes(even the legendary mogami). I do love my Baltimore, but I still need to learn how to handle her properly

Buffed the guns, then ninja nerfed the survivability :sceptic:

 

Pensa was a beast back to version 0.3 or 0.4

exp 2000 every round.

Back in the day with my Cleveland I have no problem rekting Pensacola. No matter how bad my position is, it takes 1/3 of my health and I already sunk her

And my recent death with her is alway a cruiser to cruiser fight (I won't be mad if a BB.kill me.because I must be wrong if I really got.killed that way

Reason why Myoko has better AA stats then the Mogami was because back in the day Myoko was the tier VIII while Mogami was Tier VII. WG did a switcharoo and forgot to change Myoko's stats.

tier 8-9 American cruisers have good AA ,but are just rubbish ships, and are only good for AA escort.

as attack cruisers lolz forget about it, just run away from the fight they are out classed by the IJN cruisers any day of the week.

and then when you get to tier 10 hahahaha don't even bother, AA on the Des-Moines is a joke and the Zao is a much better cruiser and the 2mm buff of the amour does nothing at all lolz.

getting hit by a Yamato can take away 90% of your HP with 4 shells lol and as for the guns on the Des-Moines hahah tier 8 guns doing tier 8 damage lol lol lol

yes it has a high rate of fire, but with slow moving shells and a high arc, like the Cleveland guns ,your going to have a hard time trying to hit anything at range and if u get close to where your guns can be affective then your going to get hammered by BBs and CAs.

Zao has better guns, better range, faster shells and lower arc, which makes it so much easier to hit targets.

 

FORGET ABOUT GRINDING THE AMERICAN TIER 7-10 CRUISERS THEY ARE A JOKE.

 

played the Des-Moines after the patch and in the battle there was 2 Des-Moines and 7 Zaos lol

There is no fun in killing a Pensacola, only guilt. 

 

 

Yeah, I reckon the only way a person could feel more guilty is getting into a "slap fight" with someone who is in a coma :ohmy:

i've tried this ship again today, try to use AP... well....it's completely useless, it does only 500 damage to furutaka with 3 hits on the mid ship, and he did 3000 when hitting my stern, WTF??? WTF is that logic, FURUTAKA can be 4 times better than a tier 7 ship in terms of gun? what a bull crap, and than, a whole squadron of torp bomber fly right over me with AA defense ability on..... not even a single plane got shot down.... and I got rekt by a single furutaka 1v1. 

 

i don't know WTF war gaming has done to this ship, this ship surely needs to move down to tier 6 exchanging with cleveland, or buff the gun and the armour, also the AA. there's no way its worse than a tier 5 and loose everytime against it.

my advice is don't play past the Cleveland the rest of the American cruiser line of ships are rubbish.

even the dead-Moines is bad as well. 

 

I prefer to stay at Omaha :D:D:D  (unfortunately sold it and move to Pensacola :sad)
