I don't right now, but may pick it up in a few months. It isn't available for xbox, and my PC won't handle it, but I am building a new one that will.

My wife's laptop will... which means I don't get to play often.

I haven't played in a few months. I was using the Omaha and just got the Pensacola. The Omaha was way faster and had more guns. Took a little while to learn the Pensacola. It is slower but the larger 203 mm main's get me a lot of cit hits. Whats your name on there and I will add you.

Omaha was an awesome ship if handled right, if you didn't keep track of who you are showing your side to it is short lived though. Very fun to whack DD's with. Torps are handy too.

When I went thru Cleveland was the next. It was kind of meh, not bad but not great.

I stalled out on the Pepsicola. Big slow reloading and traversing guns that are not terribly accurate and if you look at it wrong and the thing blows up. They restructured the lineup a few months ago and I think I somehow got to skip around it... no complaints here.

The Helena came out when they revamped the US Cruiser lineup... now that is a mighty fine gunboat. Fifteen 6" runs, excellent rate of fire, good turret traverse and can take a decent beating for a cruiser.

My name is very original, 85Ranger.

I will have to see if the laptop will handle it.

If it does I might start sooner.

You can turn down the graphics quality which helps a lot.

I will add you. I hated the Pensacola at first. Then I figured out to stay next to bb's. I started doing very well with it. I can't spend money on the game because the payment goes overseas and it gets flagged. I don't feel like getting it cleared through the bank. It probly is a good thing though. I almost spent 50 bux on it one weekend to get a crap ton of doubloons.

I tried that too. Either they would hang back so the enemies would be out of my gun range or go charging in where I would be the quick easy kill. Not effective against the ddís they attract either.

Whatever my play style is if I have one, we didnít mesh.

I found that dd's and some cruisers love to torp bb's. I have gotten a lot of kills splitting from them when the crap hits the fan and staying to the side. BB's draw most of the fire from my experience which allows me to duck and run a few km's and fire back. By the way this strategy is only with the Pensacola.
