If I like ARP Takao...

...would I like Atago?

I have to buy at least one premium ship while special is on and I really like the play-style of Takao (haven't got to Mogami on IJN CA yet so I can make no other comparison).

It seems they are the same ship.

Is this true?

Takao is a clone of Atago, just like the ARP Myoko's and Kongo's. The camo's may have very slight difference on credit and EXP rewards but I haven't noticed any.

You get a tiny bit more concealment with the Paytago. 

Persoanlly I don't think it is worth the money. 

IIRC, Takao has the same credits coefficient as a Mogami, which is lower than Atago’s (unlike Takao’s semi-premium status, as an authentic high tier premium, Atago is meant to be a credit farmer)

An additional advantage is Atago being less obvious than Takao, ARP ships are too shiny.

As for OP’s problem, IMO a premium’s value consists of three parts, her modeling, the gameplay value, and economical value. Atago only has better economical value (IMO camo concealment buff doesn’t mean much for cruisers), I don’t think spending a whole 50-ish USD only on less than 1/3 it’s whole value worth it, even with discount.

Hmm, well ok thanks all for input.

I love German BB. I'm up to Bismark on KM BB line.

Perhaps I will Tirptz myself.

If you enjoy playing mid to high tier Cruisers I'd go either the Prinz or the Atlanta.

If brawling in a BB is your preferred style go with Tirpitz, which is always fun with her torps just remember that AP bombs can delete you in one strike and Tier X CA's will happily shoot at you for farming damage.

And for DD's I'd go Lo Yang, she's insanely powerful on the right map and in good hands.

I've seen my share of deadly Atlantas. I was just chased down by one with Radio Location in my Kamikaze. (Maybe only time I've seen it used to good effect). Seen my share of squishy short ranged Atlantas get deleted too. Its such a niche play-style I'm not sure if I would enjoy it. But you do see a lot of them. It is tempting. They can inflict a lot of grief... err I mean play a valuable role in the team.

Whats so good about Lo Yang?

IIRC she has Radar, all she has to do is sit in the cap, pop smoke and radar and wait for enemy DD's to get in range of her fast firing guns. That and all CA's in range will also fire upon the unsuspecting enemy DD.

Ok. Yeah I did some research and read some posts. Hmmm. Yes that sounds effective.

Well now I'm confused. Would have gone with Atago - but if Takao basically same boat, seems no point.

Damn, now I'm down too...

Lo Yang - for reasons above.

Texas - cuz plane deletion is fun.

Atlanta - cuz I'm 'lanta curious.

Indianapolis - just seems cool, is heart pick, no real reason. Also plane deletion.

Tirpitz - cuz brawl.

Atlanta is Plane deletion, it's first and foremost role is fleet AA escort. 

I went up against a Texas recently in my Mutsu and managed to knock out almost all of her AA guns, and with no secondaries my ally DD's made short work of her.

I'd personally go with either Atlanta or Lo Yang but that's just my personal opinion.

Lo yang does not have radar, but a hydro with range of 5.43km (her concealment is 5.8 full build) and the hydro coexists with smoke. It means when Lo yang goes into cap, smoke and hydro, it can often still spot the enemy DD while staying relatively safe.

IMO Texas isn’t worth spending money on if you have the time to grind. You can use playtogether.worldofwarships.asia and invite yourself:cap_haloween: And grind the second account to T6, you get a free Texas. For T5 BB the Italian Cesare is good, accurate, maneuverable, punching and good concealment.

Atlanta is kinda hard to play in random, but if you play coop or have a bunch of friends to division Narai scenario with, Atlanta can’t be wrong. Pure DPM fun.
