Royal Navy Cruisers overpowered

I think RN Cruisers are, frankly, a bit OP.  In the hands of skilled players, they bring far more to the table than any other ship line.

The main perks of RN CL are excellent AP, hull repair, smoke, excellent torpedo armament, and most importantly, broken stealth.

 

Lets start with AP:
RN AP is frankly, broken.  Having an arming thickness of 12mm means even the hull armour of small botes like DDs can arm the AP fuse, that coupled with 0.004s fuse delay, means that the only way you can overpen is if you hit skinny superstructure, or hit insufficiently thick armour.  This, combined with the long range plunging arcs of the AP shells, mean that you can pen anything at log range, angled or not.  Likewise, typical angling maneuvres against other AP does not work on RN.  There is no way you can angle against this thing, unless you bow on at close range (and they will just aim superstructure).

Then comes the smoke:
100s smoke time is no joke.  The smoke puff is also large enough for slight maneuvres inside smoke to mitigate blind fire.

Let's not even mention the hull repair, which is available to T3+ ships.

Lastly, the most broken aspect of RN CLs would be the stealth.  You can stay 2km behind your DD, and suddenly slap an enemy DD with 5k salvoes, and breaking modules in the process (AP breaks guns, engines)

Of course, detractors would claim that the ships are paperbotes, and easy to delete.  But most CAs are also easy to delete.  In the hands of skilled players/coordinated divisions, these ships are brutal.

WG nerf pls, this toys too good for unicums.

Objection: reduced AP normalization would harm more to DD player....

That would make this stuff  more OP!

I agree. Atsf told me that if you take Expert Loader you unlock the secret HE shells that are also way too powerful.

Proof of OPness

And this is from somewhat competitive player aka (bit less noob) Flamu 

 

 

We are still waiting for the Super Unicum how to from Eurobeat to seal the deal.

Here is an idea play them and against them for a few weeks and then evaluate. They only just got on the market once everyone works out how to sink em I am sure the hype will die down. Right now they are the new toy give it a chance people.

With such OP ships out their (specially when server bullies got hands on them with free exp) we have no chance........ at all..... Smoke, torp, concealment, shell damage, heal .... all in one boat? even sonar and fighter and whats not.... NOT FAIR to begin with, giving it a time is out of the question.

They are so OP even Shima-tan cannot kill them :hiding:

 

That's when Shima-kun can then cause penetration damage with ease.
