    Iowa woes

    It's what I've heard, oddly though I loved all the US BB's up till her. I know she's different from the rest tho, and that's maybe why

    Iowa woes

    So I apparently do pretty good damage in my Iowa, but she just feels so lackluster in every way compared to pretty much any other T9 BB. FDG has great armor, hydro, secondaries, etc. Soyuz has Stalinium everything and railguns. Jean Bart has speed boost and MBRB, We don't talk about Minni-slow-ta, etc Her armor doesn't seem to hold up (I've had cruisers take off 10k when I'm bow in), and citadels from the dumbest angles. Yes I know it's not as bad as it once was, but she still feels so flimsy. Not to mention how much SAP and HE hurts. The maneuverability is downright tragic, forget dodging torps; if you do; it's purely down to luck. Yes I do have the C hull. She can go fast but can't turn or get moving/slow down within a postal code, and struggles to be able to didge anything or get out of sticky situations The guns are supposed to be great, but almost every time I pull the trigger they either all miss, or just shatter and bounce. No, I'm not sitting at 17km+, yes I'm running the dispersion mod, yes I'm trying to shoot what's broadside if I can. Still doesn't pay off. I've had so many 70-80k games that easily could have been 100k+ if the guns weren't so horribly unreliable...she feels like Littorio, without the stealth or great shell velocity. I've watched several videos to try to figure Iowa out, I'll usually try to go to a flank and stay at mid range. Focus cruisers and broadside BB's. But there's nothing like lining up the perfect shot so many times just to have the guns utterly fail in every way. The shells are so slow to get downrange that they're easy af to dodge. I was slow to warm to NC, but I did end up liking her after a while. Iowa I just can't come to terms with. No matter what I try to do differently, I can't can't make this thing work for me....

    Roma/Littorio fails

    That's what a clan member told me too, RNG was balancing me out...ugh. Thing is, I did. I went to play other nation's ships, different tiers, even walked away from the game entirely for a week. No change.

    Roma/Littorio fails

    I got Littorio a few weeks ago, and initially loved it. First dozen games I was averaging 106k and 72% WR. Now with 38 games I'm suddenly down to 79k average and 46% WR...and I don't feel like I'm playing any different than I was at the start. The guns just fail to perform, and i can't seem to aim anymore either. I don't consider myself a great player, but I'd like to think I'm above the average 49% potato. But now I go from being able to manage 90-100k pretty easily to struggling to manage 40-50k a match. What am I doing wrong? I've got a stealth build, since the isn't much else to build her for. With a 12 point captain, I have PT, AR, superintendent, CE, and high alert. Doesn't help that all but 2 matches I've played in the past almost 2 weeks have been total blowout games... 20200906_213748_PISB708-AZUR-Littorio_46_Estuary.wowsreplay 20200906_212139_PISB708-AZUR-Littorio_15_NE_north.wowsreplay 20200906_205743_PISB708-AZUR-Littorio_14_Atlantic.wowsreplay

    Americans bb are worth it?

    Why try to change your mind when you're right?

    Americans bb are worth it?

    It happens. Just your aim and German (in)accuracy

    Americans bb are worth it?

    Citadeling German BB's is difficult due to their turtle back armor preventing shells from reaching the citadel in most cases. It is possible, just not likely. Usually at longer ranges, where the shells come in at a steeper angle and go thru the turtleback rather than bouncing off it

    Bayern is the wurst. Gneisenau can be better, but they're not accurate ships. They're tanking ships. USN BB's, the line in the game now, is a soild line for the most part. I'm at NC, and I'm finding her somewhat annoying to use, but once you get past New York, the USN BB's are quite soild.
