The only thing I would say to iChase is that the Alabama is really the first ship which has come out as premium that has had as many errors as it did.  When the Tirpitz came out, it was correctly modeled.  When the Indianapolis came out, it was designed properly, etc.  

 

And by designed properly, there were no glaring discrepancies between the way they were actually built versus the way they were modeled in-game as we saw with the South Dakota.

 

 

 

Tirpitz also had various improvements to her AA over time with WG.  I recall I used to fly my Tier VI bombers to Tirpitz and had zero respect for her AA.  Not anymore.  Still not amazing but it's decent now.  Other than players being derpy with Tirpitz, CVs were the real killers of her.  She handled her own fine against other BBs, Battleships, but that nonexistent AA made you worry about aircraft.

Yes, but adjusting the DPS of a ship's AA is a far cry from missing hundreds of mm of armor from it's belt, citadel location, etc.

 

A comparable error would be if the Tirpitz was released without it's turtleback.

It's just funny I thought.  I used to fly Ryujo's bombers back and forth OVER Tirpitz and not lose any planes :D  Of course can't do that anymore but you have to admit... That is hilarious.

 

I also remember that each time Tirpitz was getting those incremental AA upgrades by WG, people were saying things like, "Like she needs it."

Boss man, who posted your signature and where can I find it? :P

 

I don't remember and it would be inappropriate to share the name anyway.  I sure with enough search-fu, you can find it.

I've been seeing some around on the battlewaters. How are they getting them, and how do I get one?

They're testers, the ship hasn't been released yet.

You do know that fear you have mentioned in your first sentence is completely possible with the iowa/missouri and montana yeah? Also in what world is there ever a dev that listens to complaints from testers and impliments EVERYTHING, especially when that alteration would turn the ship from strong to blatent P2W level OP. 

 

That didn't stop them with Belfast, did it?

Still needed: (1) a NO CV button for the MM (2) End split spawn maps
