Well, me and the enemy's stupidity.  While I was sailing in circles on the cap (I sank the enemy Bogue from there :D), all their remaining ships except the Zuiho (Isokaze, St Louis, Sth Carolina), decided that sinking our sole remaining carrier was much more important.  The Sth Carolina in particular was so fixated on our carrier (who ultimately sank him :P) he never returned my fire even though he could have given me a broadside or three as he sailed past to get within range.  As for me, fortunately their Zuiho didn't seem to know about manual drops so every time his torpedo bombers dropped their load I turned away and put my ship in reverse to cut my speed whilst watching his torpedoes go past.

 

And now I shall return to WoWS as a battered wife returns to her abusive spouse after he was nice for five minutes and promised never to do it again.

And somehow some people are still arguing that removing manual drop is the way to go for CV. :P

But good carry game there.

Murmansk is one of the best performing ships in the game.

 

I'm sure that's coincidence, given it's a USN ship given to the Soviets. Yet it does better than the identical USN ship.

 

Reasons, I guess.

Remember. They are buffing the Omaha to Murmansk Standards...

Not the other way around.

The Murmansk is supposedly a later refit of the in-game Omaha.  Either way, I didn't save this game solely by charging around bullying the enemy.

 

Anyway, I couldn't save this one in my supposedly OP Cleveland.

probably because it was bless by stalin so its every shot will hit the target, they also plated its armor with stalinium so even battleship shell will bounce. :D

 

still all the current russian ship are OP. murmanks can easily citadel all CL using ap and it has very stealthy torps too.

IMO the buffed Omaha is still inferior to the Murmansk in many departments. I don't think there are anything that the Omaha with C hull can be better than Murmansk, other than acceleration.

Why? cuz reasons. :hiding:

Except the Aurora. St.Loius can kill that thing. :hiding:

 

Talk about citadel, all other 6-inch Cruisers can do it too. It's just that tier6 and below Cruisers are light. And no, the Furutaka isn't heavy, neither is the Aoba. Surprisingly the Cleveland actually is "heavy" eventhough it wasn't classified as one.

My comment was meant as a jibe at the ship, not how well you might have played it.

Cheers

Gave up on waiting for Marblehead and got the ship while on sale - It has better firing range, plus more with the spotter plane, PLUS------>>>>>RUSSIAN TORPEDOES, STRONK ENGINEERING 8km range!! 

(55knots is kinda slow, but at that tier people still have a hard time dodging)

It scared me every time lol

 

And the other one, "The team is depending on you!"

 

Now that I think about it, maybe they should start every battle with that one.
