I got my hands on the Worcester and am happy to give you all a quick preview of the T10 USN light Cruiser that will become a goal for many.
It has fast firing guns and a plethora of anti-DD modules that will make it a nightmare for most destroyers.
OMG!!!! NOT WOOSTA! “WUH-STER” OR “WIH-STIR”
for some reason when i see the name, in my head it’s pronounced “War-Chester”
“Yeah, I grew up in Worcester.”
If you grew in wuhsta, you would not be advocating the use of an “r” in the pronunciation. People in Mass cannot speak letter “r.” All “r’s” get taxed so yo do not have them.
@Jeremy Risley YES , YES . i found one , i have the same problem LMFAO.
Don’t forget the American Worcester is named after the UK town 😉 here it’s pronounced wurr-ster or wurr-chus-ter
IT IS MEGA-ATLANTA! 😀
Ahh can’t beat a splash of worcester sauce
Worcestershire sauce. You stupid fucking ameriKans don’t even know your shitty little town is named after somewhere in England.
Found the triggered cunt.
+Evilstorm11 You should see the A-1 Destroyer..mmm..tasty
Oh my god Zoup say it right… You’re gonna give people from Massachusetts, like me, a coronary. A very high percentage of our towns and cities aren’t pronounced anything like how they’re spelled, so it’d probably be a good idea to Google how they’re pronounced ?
Swampscott, Gloucester, Concord, Leicester, Peabody, Quincy…
and every Brit….. lol
New England isn’t the entire world. Stop thinking the world revolves around you ;)…and it’s a milkshake, not a cabinet. A water fountain, not a bubbler 🙂 though, let’s be honest, coffee milk rocks (Had to suffer through four years in Providence for college…)
and don’t get me started on CUH-ventry vs CAH-ventry…
Any Bostonian will tell you that Boston is proven to be the Hub of the Universe, so your claim is moot. And it’s not a “cabinet” unless you’re in Rhode (ak!-Spit!) Island, which is in a different universe. Have a frappe instead. You didn’t get to the main point, though. If Worcester is Wooster, and Gloucester’s Glosster, why isn’t Dorchester Dooster?
Peter Stickney extra ‘h’ makes all the difference ?
Sooo…she’s a super Atlanta…minus the torps…
more like a flint without the torps and smoke
The hydro seems to be a bit excessive. As if her radar and firepower doesn’t do enough against DDs, it can pop hydro and be almost impervious to the DDs retaliation? Basically it is a very hard counter to CVs and DDs that is still quite good against CAs, CLs and BBs? Seems a bit much TBH.
Elmarby Any smart BB player can wreck this thing once it gets in the open.
All ships are easy to kill if they mess up or are in a bad situation.
On the other hand she is even squishier then the Mino without the smoke and all. Screw up once and your shiny anti DD cruiser sits in the harbour again.
Elmarby I agree, but high tier light cruisers with a high citadel have to operate on such slim margins of error.
Still wish this cruiser had enhanced HE penetration. Without IFHE, she’s nearly incapable of harming ball battleships she faces as well as german and american heavy cruisers. Other than fire starting of course. Makes IFHE a skill tax, basically. And with no defensive consumables like smoke, thin armor, and massive citadel, she’ll take punishing hits from all angles.
Although she will absolutely murder any DDs she comes across. Basically, she’s the tier 10 version of the Atlanta. So any players that can’t make the Atlanta work (myself included) really should not be playing this ship unless something changes.
“oh no, this ship can only torch a ship from bow to stern, its underpowered” stop
Yes, but so can all the heavy cruisers. Rest assured, Des Moines, Hindenburg and Zao have noooo problems doing that while also actually causing direct damage.
Karl Barbosa exactly, that’s my point. It’s fucking broken and WG needs to stop adding ships that do it, and as for this thing, it’s designed to kill DD’s, and can do it’s job very well, there’s no reason to make it able to do everything else too
what kind of CL captain dont have ifhe?
Why would anyone pick this over the Des Moines? I wouldn’t that’s for sure.
Probably need to use IFHE on this ship; atm it does just feel like a DM with worse armour and a few more slightly faster-shooting guns…. they need to make sure this ship is different enough.
DM still only has 15.7km base range, Worchester has 16.7km
Mthammere2010 Can use the range mod on the DM, with that mine has around 18km range, and the arcs are a little less floaty.
Quite a few CVs left on Eu … see enough of them every day to still warant AA builds
Andreas Müller count SEA in… There is still a healthy CV population here
The age of Destroyers is over. The time of the Cruiser has come! 😀
Proceed to get triple citadelled by a BB while perfectly angled… or a Conqueror shoots at you, sets 3 fires, breaks all your AA guns, engine and steering gear… while your damage party is down. 🙂
Yeah this ship is gonna result in even more noob tears from idiots who get deleted by bbs than the mino (due to the lack of smoke).
im calling it “Atlanta ^2”
A tier 10 Atlanta or at least play like she is that means spam your salt and pepper, hug your waifu Islands, and go after DD’s first, then set the world on fire because everyone will be after you. Also check out “How to Atlanta” for a more detailed description of how you’re going to need to play Worcester
Its a Super Atlanta and its going to be hilarious.
Sooooo Worchester and minotaur yueyang div in future… Rip DDs
Gummiheng add YueYang
Thank you. That’s what I’ve been saying for the past two months – this ship will be a nightmare when divved up with a Minotaur and a PA/USN DD.
It’s a big Atlanta. My favorite ship!
Actually I’m most looking forward to the Helena. I love the Brooklyn class more than any other US cruiser.
She’s not sunshine and rainbows? Her arcs are pure rainbow.
Loving the space battle music in the background Zoup. If you don’t want it stopping a third through the video though, there is an hour long version up on YT.
She is a Megalanta .. with More Toys 🙂 🙂 Love My Atlanta and My Mino <3 so She'll fit right in 🙂 Starting the Grind 🙂 Zoup .. In Your Opinion how long do we have until the Split ?? Approximately that is
Ok. So it won’t fit my playstyle. Doesn’t matter. A T10 for me is a trophy that’s not played much.
Thanks for the heads up. 🙂
