So i just unlock Cleveland this morning. Qas stuck in between the choice to take AA upgrade or Aiming system. 

 

I consider AA upgrade at first, but i dont think i met CV at high tier, maybe this is a better choice for next year CV rework? Or should i go for aiming system upgrade? 

 

Next question is, radar or spotter? This ship has abysmal range, i may need to run spotter sometimes but at the same time what if enemy team has more DD, it will require Radar to spot them. I don't want to fall into situation of 'WHO HAD RADAR' lol 

 

Ps : Captain skill i took is PT, DE, IFHE, CE & AR

Would love to send you some of the replays of playing Cleveland. But I think game got an update. Im not a fan of spotter. Pretty useless to be honest. The duration isn't long enough to give you much damage output than you normally get by Clever(!) positioning.

Just Take AA, useful to get rid enemy spotter plane much faster...
second take radar, because u only have 15.6 km and doesnt have range mod so spotter plane is bit useless, and your job is hunt DD......
ur concealment is 9.1 km ( CE build) the moment u got detected, they already in ur radar range.....
just kee hugging island if u want survive until end game.....

Back in the day, when she would strip planes from the sky with BFT AFT, I specced her for secondaries.

I know, I know... was still fun but.

I would take hydro and watch for the first sign a DD was gonna smoke and just charge straight at them.

Fun.

That was back in the T6 days when her AA was good enough at her tier without special bits.

But AFTER the era when she could burn down battleships from 12 parsecs away.

If you know what I mean, you know what I mean!

😄

Yep very coincidence xD 

 

I still play with stock module, and trying to get used to the lob shells, it take lightyear to reach to the ground, like a lay down Murican haha

Hug island and radar=profit

Use the AA upgrade, decimate any spotter plane that tries to spot u in your AA field

 

Radar is fun, i try it in Cherry Blossom and raep poi ships hiding in smoke. 

 

Will mount AA upgrade later. It seems everyone suggest AA over Aiming

@waichung1823, you can definitely try Cleveland on Cherry Blossom, and may be even grind her out there. However, I found my latest Cleveland replays (13). If you are interested on how Cleveland is played on various maps, including stock grind, and utilization of terrain and RADAR, pushing and defending situations, feel free to take a look. These replays work on current version of WoWS. You don't have to watch them full length, just skip to next one once you get the idea.

Good thing about these games, me and Sunny ( @sunlo2013 ) both played Clevelands, so you can check two good positioning in each match, on several maps, and you should be able to plan your strategies from there.

  • Captain build: PT, AR, DE, CE, IFHE.
  • Ship build: Concealment, AA range, DCP, Main battery mod.
  • Consumables: Typical premium consumables (RADAR).

Disclaimer: I am by no means a great Cleveland player, and many of these games are your typical everyday game, a few of them were good, but not the sexy 300k ones that pros put up in their channels. That's why I think these will be more relate-able. About ship composition in division, we had no choice, these were the only ships we had on NA server 😛

Cherry Blossom was made for the cheatland.  Stack camos and flags and watch the Grind. Melt away. If credits aren't a issue then just keep using the ship over and over for the 75k cost

I realise Cleveland cannot tank shells like Baltimore does. Thanks for the replay, already run few trials on Cherry, will try to bring it to random once i upgrade the hull, hope T8 MM wont screw me up 😕

Well, you shouldn't be tanking at all with US cruisers unless the situation is dire.
