Clubhouse Shootout - Cruiser (CA) version

I'm going to highjack Flak's excellent idea and continue the theme on the cruiser side of warfare.

This is the CA version, so no CL's (we'll save them for the next...), and no Alaska - BC's are out.

Same rules as before.  Clubs can have MULTIPLE PARTICIPANTS with the only caveat being you must take a cruiser not already claimed. We'll fire on targets at range 2 of increasing armor.  You must hit that armor to continue, miss and you're out.

To even out the wide disparity of CA costs and gunnery however, this time the handicap will help you in a different way.  You can use 3 points of your handicap to give yourself 1 extra attack die on any round of fire.  For example, if the KM takes Adm Scheer (cost 20) and the RM takes Trento (cost 14) I have 6 points of handicap.  I can use 3 of the points to give myself an extra gunnery die in round 3.  Then use the other 3 to give myself an extra in round 4.  In round 5 though, I am once again batting my natural gunnery value.  Once used, they cannot be re-spent, and you can only give yourself one boost per round.

Similarly, cruisers with rapid fire may use that ability one time for the entire contest, whereas cruisers with Cruiser Hunter, Raider, DD hunter etc, do not get their bonuses as these are generic targets.

Round1 (armor 4)
Round2 (armor 5)
Round3 (armor 6)
etc.

I'll take Quincy for CUSN. Very Happy

Unless we get some other CUSN player (and CFS is still available), then I'll reevaluate for CFS.
sublime828

I will take HMAS Australia for CRN
Brigman

Gonna let others take first swag at this, if another IJN player wants in, don't wanna be a hog. Smile
Joshua

Thanks, Brig! You did the IJN proud in the BB match!
I shall take the Haguro for the IJN if that's alright.
Flakstruk

I'll follow Brigmans suit, I'll let someone else take the option to play - including someone willing to swap clubs or join up for the first time Very Happy
Rebel

ClubVFN will fight with Suffren, but maybe nrnstraswa wants to play as captain...
firesdstny

since there are so many cruisers perhaps we'll just allow an open enrollment - multiple participants, multi chances to win for the more active clubs.  Must be different cruisers from those taken though.

CRM - Trento (Fires) 14
CUSN - Quincy (solo) 16
CRN - Australia (sublime) 12
CIJN - Haguro (joshua) 18
VFN - Suffren (rebel) 14

It's open to you as well Brigman! Can have multiple members from the same club join this one.
firesdstny

I guess I'll extend the cutoff till Friday.  Give more people a chance to see this / jump in!

nrnstraswa

I'll jump in as well, supporting Rebel and the VFN with Algerie.

Thanks for the extension.  Smile
Rebel

Thanks nrn, I was a bit busy, glad you took up the great VFN cause! Laughing

You might want to take the Sufren though, since it has the same guns for one less point, giving you a slight advantage! Very Happy
