In my case, mainly the Prinz Eugen, but I also play the NO, so I'd really love some tips on what to do as a support CA. I can barely do anything to influence the battle, and I get out DPMed in HE slugouts against other angled CAs.

Well, my gameplay varies a lot in my Prinz Eugen, I had a streak of games that looked liked Notser's sample game. I did top EXP in a Tier 10 win yesterday I think, but when I'm stuck with enemies that do angle their boats, I'm restricted to HE spams and island camping and the Prinz Eugen isn't the best for that given the arc.

Well, I really need to hold my fire and learn not to become the focus of the enemy team :I

 

Prinz is pretty tanky. Maintain distance from enemy bb. Punish dds and broadside cruisers first.

I learned to stay away from BB's:)  They will shred CA's in 1 - 2 Salvos. hahaha  .... 

Tickle BB's to death with HE and pray for fire.
Upper cuts with AP in the super structure specially with US and German guns.
Sail with other ships, so you wont be the only Juicy target the enemy will see:)

the strategy against BB varies when using cruiser

 

Furutaka and Atago in particular have capability to withstand enemy BB salvo head on then get close to bring 4 or 10 Middle Fingers of Pain 

or simply use kiting-HE Spam strategy like most IJN Heavy Cruiser capable of

Use Priority target

*see number raise to even 2-3*

Turns 360 and then keep steer left and right to dodge shells

and just spam ur salvos to them

U will hit them more than they hit you if they decides to chase you o..o

ditto to above posts, and....

read mini map, run to your team mates when you are alone.

find ships and shoot them when their turrets (guns) are turning away from you.

As long as you are alive, the opportunity to damage enemy are always there for you to get them.
