I've been playing this game for many hundreds hours, and specifically maybe nearly (or more) 100 hours for USN CA tree alone.

This is the most disappointment, the fool's joke, the degenerate moment of my WoWs play ... when I play ... Pensacola.

Due note, I read all the players hatred towards this ship, called it Pepsi-Tin-Cola Armor and suchs ... but as I'm not testing the ship myself, I think they are just exaggerate.

Now I finally have it, play with it ... wow ... amazing:ohmy:. Those people who make thread and comment about how under created Pensacola, IMO, they are not exaggerate, in fact, they were polite.:great:

 

So please, since WG think Pensacola should stay the way it is, then ...

I request you to paint the default texture with Wood texture.

Here, I link you some good wood texture site ... http://graphicdesignjunction.com/2013/03/seamless-high-qualtity-wood-textures/

Using steel texture on Pensacola making this ship is an example of Fraud, Deception, Swindle, Imposture, dissimulation (all words taken from google translate).

 

The analogy is like you sell burger and say the meat is Cow, when in truth it's a rat's.

Another example is like you marriage a pretty Korean idol's. She's a beauty, but when born a child, the "real thing" are answered, which is 99% the child feature "will back to nature" ... (or you would think she cheating with a very ugly person).

 

So please, create a real ship that we can actually enjoy. You don't respect us, who playing this game for hundreds of hours just to have a garbage piece of trash's ship.

Stop saying RNGesus ... cause I've been testing this many times fighting a Cleveland, and damn sure I miss that ship.

No wonder when I'm remember way back ... I did kill a lot Pensacola with Cleveland, not just final shot. Let's say Cleveland don't show his board side, Pensacola are 100% losing the duel.

Pensacola is a good ship......somewhat better than Myoko in my opinion 

 

And I say it time and time again

  • The guns have better firing angles and rotate faster
  • The ship is shorter and easier to angle, while maintaining its full broadside potential
  • Immune to Carriers
  • Torpedoes are merely a distraction and can't be used by IJN cruisers without exposing their sides anyways
  • Cruiser armour won't help against Battleships anyways

I've had some great games in the Pepsi, and a LOT of meh and bad games. - IMO it just doesn't do anything well, not like the Cleveland, Omaha and the St Louis (which IMO is what the US line should be - no torpedoes, Lots o' guns) - I'm currently at the New Orleans and Stock it is painful.

There is a reason she is so fragile. She's a treaty cruiser. The washington treaty didn't just put limits on battleships, but also on the size (displacement) and number of heavy cruisers. Ships like Pensacola had less armour so they could meet the treaty limitations and still carry the 8 inch guns. Heavy Cruisers built later (after the treaty ended) have better armour.

 

As far as how well she plays, it takes a bit of getting used to, but angling and dodging shells (with the incoming fire skill) do make success easier. She does have very nice and accurate guns, along with good AA. She can wipe out cruisers and DDs if used right, as long as a BB isn't around to smash her. I'm still not good in her myself, but I'm getting there.

My main problem with Pensacola is i cannot seem to find the best way of angling the ship effectively even i bow-on or stern-away it seem that Citadel is inevitable :D:D:D

 

Anyways with the recently buffed AAA and good gun characteristics i seem to like Pensacola than i used to but i wont go over to the New Orleans because i see no point in getting it since Baltimore and Des Moines is not really something i want :P

 

RUSSIAN CRUISER URAAA!!!!!

I think the best way to survive on the Pepsicola is to dodge shots altogether, since taking shots is inevitable due to its reputation of having no armour :D

Though i kinda want to get the Des Moines because dat DPM

 

Yep, also interested with the RU cruiser.. I'm saving free exp to skip to Kirov

I could have a solution for you... RE-SKIN it with MODS...

 

http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/22352-tanzs-shipyard/

 

It has tons of ship skins available and Pensacola has two skins available in Measure 32 and another in Measure 3 with bow waves with wooden decks...

 

But honestly I don't even know why WG opted for the Pensacola Class... At T8 where things get a lot more harder, they could've opted for the far more superior Northampton Class which was descended from the Pensacola herself...

NO... Pensacola is even better than myoko

you just dont know what pensacola is better at something

this is... and uhh why would you paint pensacola into a wood? what is this some kind of motorized outrigger canoe?

it turns faster than myoko

its armor is as thick as myoko

its turrets rotates faster than any japanese turrets (because its american! that's why)

and its turrets have good HE and AP which i experimented also wait for her final form

but i prefer to change it to northampton because (bigger is better)

Well guys, I'm not accuse Pensacola being bad in matters of anti-air, power and speed, but Pensacola armor is really worse, You don't need to show me picture of how big score you can hit with Pensacola.

Do I get the assumption from the comments that Pensacola armor is "Normal" in high tier ship ? ... wow, means high tier battle are filled with big wooden ship armed with big weapons ?

 

Each playing Pensacola and my board side in the opening always result Citadel ... and don't said it's just me having bad luck, because when I see enemy Pensacola and shoot it with AP also indeed resulting Citadel. This ship is crazy weak but doesn't meant it useless, it's offense power indeed strong. That's why in the title said, I ask WG to use wood texture as the default skin texture of Pensacola, so it won't be deceitful.

 

Yesterday, I was camping behind Island and an enemy DD are jeopardize my position. Automatically I hit the full gas pedal and shoot the DD. 16km from my position, an enemy FUSO KONGO ! target my board side and launch the salvo. From full health, I got 2 or maybe 3 citadel by the FUSO left my HP with 1/10 hp, and with smile, the DD that chase me that she supposed to be my victim are switch to became the devourer. And this are 90% will always happening. I'm not talking about citadel damage, I'm talking about how so thin Pensacola Armor.

 

Have you ever win in 1 vs 2 situation ? I have, and I believe many of you had 1 vs 3 or more. To be able to do that, you need luck not getting citadel and do many citadel onto enemy hull. But definitely, with this ship, you hardly possible to win 1 vs 2 situation if the enemy spread out and the one in the other side shooting you with AP shells will surely kill a Pensacola in an Instant.

Remember , always maneuver constantly in a Cruiser.  try to angle your ship at times where the enemy will have a harder time to citadel you.

Also don't let you Pepsicola in close to enemy cruisers, I hit one yesterday from 6k with my Cleveland and got 6 Citadels on him. Showing your Broadside means Insta Gibb.

To be honest, I'm getting sick of the whining about Pensacola...

 

Why?

  • After Omaha/Cleveland, USN Cap'ns have been spoilt.
  • Pensacola is actually a great ship in good hands.
  • Turret turn is 50% better than Myoko
  • Great AA

 

There was bound to be a Cruiser in the USN line that wasn't amazingly OP.

She still functions well in her primary role - AA escort.

 

In deft hands - she is truly an amazing ship - so hard to hit. In average hands, so easy to melt.

 

As I tell anyone who asks about WoWS. All you need is to know a ships strengths and weaknesses and play to them. Pensacola can be a harsh lesson in learning this philosophy...
