The main difference between American and Japanese cruisers is that Japanese cruisers carry torpedoes, but very little AA. Higher tier American cruisers are virtually bristling with AA guns, and are extremely good at supporting and defending battleships. As to which is "better", that really depends on what you want to play. 

 

And no, torpedoes on cruisers are not necessarily better. While it gives you a huge added punch, they have a longer cooldown and opens you up to the chance of a devastating magazine detonation that can (and will) kill you.

If you want to use torpedoes on cruiser, choose Japan. They have wonderful torpedoes,  so sometimes can get battleship.

If you want to protect mates from enemy aircraft, choose USA. They have great anti air ability.

Speaking of cruisers and IJN cruisers, you realise that you'd be using more of ur guns than torpedoes once you get to Aoba

 

totally agree lol :teethhappy:

DDs should be nerfed a little bit, in CBT with a third of enemy team can kill my BBs easily with smokescreen and 1 torp salvo :sceptic: sometimes i cant see them right in the open, only 5km with no smokescreen :ohmy:

Yuri ship's Kitakami doesn't has that 60 torpedoes, it's only 40 (10x4 610 mm, so 20 each side)

It is OP on her Torpedoes, but Kitakami is Kuma class. So, the it's like Kuma but more torpedoes and battle in high tier
