Unlike WoT, crew training is not class dependent in WoWS.  It is only nation based.

So you can train a DD crew in a Premium BB etc.

Thanks, I already found that out but I'd like ships where I can best use my captains skills, (Prem CV's ??) and my current USN trainers the Arkansas and Albany are a little on the slow side :P

No. Yes. Yes.

 

Atlanta may seem to have good DPS, but man does it lose turrets so fast. Short range. Lobs shots instead of shooting which requires incredible lead time.

 

Atago, well compared to Atlanta, it's better. You get a proper cruiser, guns that don't easily break, it shoots shells and not lob. Besides it's [content removed] JP, you're at least safe that no nerf would hit those [content removed] JP ships lest WG angers its Asian fanboys/weeaboos[content removed] :teethhappy:

 

Really liked the Omaha, and even tho Murmansk loses some guns, I would still get it. Great dynamics, guns all over, good speed, and just flushes out its tier V [content removed] JP competition.

So after sleeping on it. I went and got both russian ships.

 

Edit:

 

Aurora=Russian St Louis oh my lord yes!

 

Really?  I've noticed the distinct lack of forum excitement about the Aurora package so I assumed it was just another Albany.

14 guns. with 7 to broadside on each side. 11.1KM fire range. To me it's a hoot. Stat wise it's much like a St Louis.

 

I don't think many give any now tier premiums any time of day, Unless it's bad.

I think the Aurora is pretty good for its tier! Like Lupis said its like a Russian St Louis. I wasn't disappointed by it at all and i find it fun to play as well. You just need to know when to fall back and not go to far ahead of your team mates as it is a bit slower and weaker than a St Louis but not by much, its guns also have a bit more range.

I think also Forum excitement comes more from bad or OP ships?

I was hoping to give the Atago a go on the test server this weekend. Unfortunately (and I hope I'm wrong) it looks like your account stats, gold, XP, ships, etc. don't transfer to the test server. Hopefully it's just this time.

Test servers are userally stand alone.

Yes they are. However, in past test servers in WoT, you got your whole account, machines, gold, crews, etc. for use on the test server. This meant that if you had enough gold in your account (at the time the accounts were copied & pasted to the test server) you could use it to buy and play premium tanks on the test server. This gave you a "test drive" without spending money on your real account.

To clarify, you were also given gold and bucket loads of credits to top up what you already had from your "live" account for the test. I do recall the gold never being enough to test everything thought.

Bought the Atlanta last week and tried couple of games, still can't justify if she is good or bad, but Atlanta is very situational, I did destroy Fuso in several salvos, if in division with another Atlanta and CL/CA, Atlanta is a very good fire-supporting cruiser for SS and SA coverages!!!! However, the fire range is really one BIG weak point...buff to 12 km or so would be nice to celebrate!!!!

Actually if the shall arc was less that of a person with a  good throwing arm it'd be great.

Ive been using the Atlanta for Escort Duty.  Anti DD and Aircraft when im in division with a CV user.  It has pretty good defensive qualities, but the Atlanta is Definitely not for everyone.... its more of a combinationn of a US DD with a Cleveland and Omaha.  

 

I would compare it to Fine Wine, an Aquired taste if you wish.  On a very very good day, it can rake in as much as 450 - 600k for a win and averaging for around 200k for a loss.  Not a bad credit grinder.  

 

The Murmansk is also a good one, giving around 350k on a good day for a tier 5
