What is the trick to this ship? My best ratings are all in cruisers and I enjoy playing them, but I can't seem to play this thing worth a hill of beans. Get smashed every time I'm spotted. It is my only tier 7 cruiser but I have much better games in the Scharnhorst (my only other tier 7). I have my 3rd worst rating in this ship :(

Don't get spotted and slow down to around 12 knots before smoking up. Also, learn how long your smoke lasts.

Get the smoke timer mod from Aslain's pack. It certainly helps!

 

Also, Brit cruisers accelerate MUCH better than they slow down. You need to plan for your smoke, don't just pop it. You will always outrun it if you do that.

 

What works for me is a bow-on approach, hit the brakes and turn broadside to your target. About the same time you hit broadside, you should be slow enough to pop smoke without running out of it. Once you are in smoke, hit your hydro, because there WILL be torps heading your way.
