I find this rather frustrating, the long Shell hang time caused me miss most of my shot. dd at close range is always a challenge. Anyone else has the same problem?

Yes most of the peoples find is really frustrating and the rest of USN Cruisers kinda like that :D:D:D

 

so if you want to continue grinding toward higher tier you have to start getting use to that shell velocity otherwise better go IJN Cruiser :P

i dont have any problem when playing cleveland, its true the shell velocity is bit slow for AP and slightly faster for HE...
just play her a lot and you will know how to play her....

always use WASD hack....
when this thing is in close range battle between 8 km ~ 7 km you always melting enemy cruiser more faster :D

practice makes perfect :)

Well just al little bit of my Opinion about USN Cruisers for OP :trollface:

 

atm they not worth grinding, Cleveland is the sweet spot the rest will go down hill, if you dont want to get even more frustrating IJN Cruisers with HE spam tactic is the way to go :D:D:D

When the last time the Cleveland got nerf? Was it during Closed Beta? The nerf I recall is the shell travel time so...... Already adapted to the change & no issue so far.

I dont know how many games OP play in Cleveland but he seem new to the ship so he still in the adaptation process i guess :P

 

And lets face it Cleveland shell velocity is bad and hard to master.

Try zoom out and 1-2 times and stick with that for a while, this way can help you see how shell travel and easily to adjust ur aim

When I play USN DD, I quite literally have to shoot off screen for a 12 km target. Cleveland is lot better than that. You have some range, but above 12 Km, BBs are the only thing that you can reliably hit.
