Yup. Performed within expectations - crappy damage with her main guns, but if anyone is silly enough to get within 5km of you, it gets creamed.

I guess as much. But she fills out my biggest criteria. History.

I had the chance to visit her at Yokosuka some years back. Beautiful ship and yes, loaded with history. I don't care if she doesn't perform well in-game, I just want her in my port.

 

Naturally, the first thing I did when I took her out was to stick the Zulu flag on her. "I require a tug The Empire's fate depends on the result of this battle, let every man do his utmost duty."

Well that's why i got the Aurora. She's dripping with history. form the Ruso-JPN war to WW1 to the October revolution.

Mains are woefully inaccurate (already expected). Secondaries are lulzy.

 

Any reason not to designate a primary target for the secondary guns? Does that have similar effects to doing so with the AA?

maybe they have done this with this ship to try and teach other BB players to get closer to the target rather than run away or sit at max range and try to be a sniper .

from the looks of this ship she is very good at close range but horrible at long range even if it is only 9km gun range.

She's a tough ol girl.. Had a good first run in her.. The dispersion is unusual. and quite funny.. I was shooting at a South Carolina about 4K away , she was heading away from me and I was firing my forward guns, I aimed right at her and fired and my round went low to the right straight into the drink.. And I mean very low and and to the right..  

 

I liked using her tho.. despite that..

First thing I did when that DD was lit behind the island. However, it doesn't give it any bonus like AA, it just tells my secondaries to prioritize it over any other available target. But as you can see, my port secondaries still fired on the cruiser while my starboard and stern guns fired on the DD as they're the only things they could each shoot at.

So, is it worth buying her?

 

well its a t2 bb and although im not sure whether it sees t4-5 ships ( i dunno if i got this right), but at t2 and 3 its quite good if you know what youre doing.

Just had a few games in it and i kinda like it, it does pretty well up close against all types of ships. I didn't find it to much trouble to take out enemy DD at close to mid range, I destroyed 3 DD in one match. I didn't find the AP shell that effective so i just used HE all the way. I have had 2 loss and 4 wins in it so far being matched up with nothing higher than tier 3 and when i did lose i was in the top 3 for my team so i don't think its to bad.

Don't buy it based on what i have said if you can't spare the $ I have only had a few games in it i just like it from what i played so far. Wait and see what other ppl think of it.

I'm in love. i managed to bully a St Louis in my Mikasa. i took most his health off while he did very little. He didn't know whether to poop or go blind.

 

Also what skills should i focus on her captain?
