Clubbing, and getting clubbed.

Currently in the T5 Emilie Bertin. Fragile but fun. It has extremely fragile engine and rudder. Gets knocked out very easily.

Seems every new cruiser line starts out with engines that pop at the mere sound of gun fire.

Very reminiscent of the lower tier german cruisers, as I remember.

Currently getting around 50K damage in most games before some big fucker splatters me right good and proper. The AP seems a little lacklustre. Clearly the T6 will be more of the same as the T5 I am currently in. Looking forward to playing the T7 Algerie. I may have to get my Myoko out at some point and re-acquaint myself with T7 heavy cruiser gaming before that though.

That's OK. Nothing great, but considering they are a bit squishy (plus I am not very good in light cruisers), it will do nicely.

Plus, it appears there will be a boost to the T5 French cruiser Emile Bertin (in the next patch apparently), upping its speed to 39knts, as the real one reached 40knts during trials. That will do nicely thank you.

Just took my Amagi into coop to try out a full secondary build. Although I did just over 100K damage in total, 20K was from the secondary guns with a total of 192 direct hits. With the right skills/options/flags, you can get the range up to 7.6km and reduce the dispersion by 85%.

Its the first time I have tried a full secondary build on anything. I was quite impressed.

Just unlocked the T6 La Galissoniere. Looks like its going to be an interesting grind to the Algerie. Doesn't look like a big improvements over the T5, but its ok. Its a light cruiser, so your gonna get deleted now and again.

Oh, and I came across the Hood in my Gneisenau this morning. Didn't look as fragile as I expected it to be. Also, it looks like it will be available via a campaign similar to the Graff Spee. So if its free, may as well have one.

Its the Bismarck that ended up free. Having the hood makes the campaign alot quicker though, they've also buffed the turret speed of both the hood and warspite too.

They seem more like Scarnhost guns now, pity they have shitter shells than the warspite though so its actually got weaker guns. Although they gave it better autobounce on the shells so it'll be able to hit angled cruisers better. Bit like the RN CLs.

That will do nicely thank you. Manual secondary guns having a field day in that one with 242 secondary gun hits.
