its fine, it has good guns that can easily rip dd and cruiser (shame it has lower rate of fire compare to IJN cruisers) and good AA for escorting battleships or protecting yourself against enemy planes but its armor are not that great that even mogami and cleveland will give you a bad day if you engage them in very close range but as long as you hit them where it hurts you can go toe to toe with other cruser with new orleans.

I quite like playing my "New O".

 

Historically the New Orleans class of heavy cruisers saw the most combat during WWII earning for the class a total of 64 Battle Stars and a Presidential Unit Citation proving that the ship was very well designed.

It's a improved version of the Pensacola with much better armor but not that strong,  it lacks one gun to the Pensacola but it makes up with its high ROF and has a faster turret turn time, it's concealment is ok

I believe anything is better than the Pensacola! I pushed through Cleveland and was majorly ticked off with the light amour. If the Orleans is no better I'll just keep gunning with the cleaver

The Pensacola and New Orleans aren't bad ships, really. It's just that Cleveland and its ridiculously overeffective shells is the club of choice at the moment.

Stick to cleveland ....its a let down ...pensacola and new orleans are not up to scratch at moment they need some buff compared to cleveland.  

What kind of buff?... I am not  sure at moment maybe little more armor.

i have  bought the new Orleans , not a bad ship , good maneuvering, good AA and mains guns are not to bad , ship is a bit tall at the back , its a very easy target to hit  .
