Very nice.

-7 sounds like one stray shell hit a teammate

Although I can recall a battle where I hit a friendly DD with just one stray shell....it resulted in a ‘devastating’ strike, blew him up, and turned me pink. :lol:

These guys need to limit themselves to updating the game only once every six months or so. The updates are constantly warning me about solid state drive space getting sucked into a black hole of wasted memory.

Now I'm going to bitch about the constant changing of rules. For a new player it doesn't matter, for a consistent player it doesn't matter, for a casual player like me who logs in to discover the Clevelend I grinded to get, has moved up a tier and is now a worthless piece of shit.

I've given up on it. This game can kiss my ass.

I think the patch where the Cleveland moved from Tier 6 to Tier 8 was 0.7.5, which was like 4-5 months ago.

The Cleveland is still a useful ship, it’s just that how to best use her has changed.
Light cruisers (the class Cleveland belongs to) and the Cleveland specifically, are still valuable anti-aircraft ships. She is still a great fire starter, setting ships on fire and burning them up. But you have to be careful about positioning her. Islands are your friends. Find a good spot for cover, snipe at the enemy when the opportunity presents itself. Her gun arc allows you to shoot over islands much of the time. And when you can’t, you poke your nose out from cover, snipe, and then pull back when shells start to rain down on you. She is also still a good DD killer. What you can’t do, is sail her broadsides or out in the open, exposed, to battlships and big cruisers and think that you will survive for long. She also has radar (which I don’t think that she had before that patch). Radar is your friend for hunting DD’s.

Games like this are the reason I still buy an old fashioned and relatively inexpensive mechanical HDD to install big games wholesale, along with my OS.

I only install the games requiring long loading times or excessive in-game disk reads that make the game hitch on my SSD(s) at high gfx settings. Such as DCS World, IL-2 Battle Of Stalingrad, and maybe the Total War: Warhammer games.

Most of the rest perform just fine sitting on a 2TB hard drive along with the Windows OS. The latter because I don't want the constant Windows background read/writes wearing down my SSDs faster, not to mention taking up so much valuable SSD space for allotted temp space and other OS junk. The fewer times I have to install Windows on a new replacement drive, the happier I am. Starting it up once a day doesn't take long at all if you keep the Startup programs list clean and minimalist. ;)
