There’s a lot to unpack with Tier X Premium American cruiser USS Austin. She reminds one heavily of Tier VII Premium USS Atlanta, with a different set of shortcomings and a very different mix of consumables. Most notable is her lack of radar, which allows opposing destroyers to light her up and target her for extinction by enemy battleships. Still, Austin is surprisingly resilient, as demonstrated here on Warrior’s Path. She will play best in a division with friendly smoke, I think. For solo players, Austin is probably a bad investment.
In an effort to keep a better flow of content coming, I’m going to pretty up some of my more interesting Twitch games from a given week and share them on the channel. It kind of goes against my innate need to have a good-looking finished product, but I’m going to try this and see what you guys think. Please let me know in the comments. These are much faster to produce than my normal stuff, but are a little less polished.
