    What to do about Musashi?

    I'm a big fan of IJN ships but I have no real desire to get Musashi, she's not worth getting if you already have a Yamato. She's a Yamato clone without good and secondaries, and non-existent AA at tier 9. Granted she's horrifically overpowered, I just don't see the appeal in getting a worse version of a ship I already have, that utilizes some of the most boring play styles in the game. Just save your FXP/Coal/Steel whatever for something else. Alaska, Jean Bart, Azuma or one of the future ships that's bound to come out.

    Update from WG Fest: Soviet Battleships line

    There was actually a leak from the WG dev team, Regia Marina is coming right after Soviet carriers.

    Attacked for mounting Spotter on DM

    "I picked an objectively worse consumable for a ship who's primary utility is radar, which resulted in my teammates dying, and I got flamed for it!" Like I don't know what you were expecting. Des Moines is good because of it's radar, if you want to lob shells at long range in a cruiser pick a different ship, because the DM has garbage shell velocity and is very poorly suited for it. And there is no such thing as too much radar. In the end you can pick whatever you want, but don't be surprised when people are pissed because you picked mounted an objectively worse consumable.

    Montana should get a speed nerf

    That's the entire point of German BBs. Extremely hard to citadel and good secondaries, but they pay for that with bad AA, horrific torpedo protection, vulnerability to HE, and few guns and and bad overall DPM, combined with the worst BB dispersion in the game. All things considered they're pretty bad int he current meta. So I don't know what point you're trying to make. I'm down to let USN BB keep their low citadel if they lose their AA, dispersion, DPM, long range AP performance, good HE performance, and torpedo protection though. Since you're making German BB comparisons.

    I can agree there. USN BBs had a notoriously large citadel, but now they're at or below the waterline making them extremely hard to citadel in general, and near impossible at close ranges. The only battleships left in the game that can be reliably citadeled are the Japanese and some of the French it would seem (and even the French aat least get a turtleback).

    Every nation with any substantial navy had radar on most of their ships by the latter half of the war, if not earlier. And if you're going to nerf the high tier USN BBs, nerf their citadel. Ever since they had their citadel lowered they're become nigh invulnerable to being citadeled unless they give complete broadside at ranges of 11km+, or unless they just get outright overmatched by something like Yamato, which is just silly.
  7. Because the bottom line is when it comes to doing damage as well as starting fires, volume of fire is almost always the preferable characteristic to have. This is not exclusive to Conqueror. On virtually any ships that has the option to mount more but smaller guns, or smaller gun with a faster reload is almost always better. It's also why ships like Lyon are so ridiculous strong despite its horrific accuracy and awful protection. Edit: Also a sidenote, the last thing on Earth this game needs is for the Conqueror to be stronger by having more/better gun options. It already promotes the most cancerous unfun modes of play and is hilariously overpowered.

    Premium Ship Review: Kii

    Kii's armor isn't even good. It's markedly worse than Amagi's which already isn't stellar, especially when you factor in her horribly exposed citadel. Kii is definitely bad, just a worse Amagi. Trades gun performance and armor, the two most important things on a BB, for AA and torpedoes. Bot h of which will go completely unused more often than not.

    Yahagi and Japanese CL's

    And you don't see me advocating for, or saying that a Russian BB line is practical. And unlike some of the crackpot Russian napkin BB drawings, I'm not even aware of any kind of extensive plans for future light cruiser designs by the IJN. And as I said before, all the existing light cruisers really belong at tier 3 & 4 only. Tier 5 is really pushing it, and their stats would have to be totally ahistorical and/or given some kind of gimmick to belong there. Yahagi has yet to make an appealing tier 5 for me with her sheer garbage gunnery characteristics (i.e. low volume of fire, average caliber, atrocious rate of fire and overall DPM, etc.), with her gimmick seemingly being absurdly high damage torpedoes, that are limited by having virtually no traverse arcs. Combine this with poor protection and a presumably large citadel and she seems quite undesirable.

    Yahagi and Japanese CL's

    There never will be an IJN CL line unless they just completely fabricate a bunch of the ships. The light cruisers built by Japan even in the later years struggle in-game even to be classified as tier 5s. There aren't nearly enough to make a full line. The best we'll get is maybe another low/mid-tier premium or two.

    Is Iowa a straight upgrade from North Carolina?

    Ah, that makes sense.

    Is Iowa a straight upgrade from North Carolina?

    Well frankly what you think doesn't change the numbers. Alsace and Lion (and JB) are much more susceptible to HE damage and fires. Even regarding citadels, Iowa is incredibly hard to citadel unless it's giving full broadside at ~11+km, because said citadel now sits below the waterline.

    Is Iowa a straight upgrade from North Carolina?

    Squishy? What? Since she had her citadel lowered she's been nigh invulnerable to taking citadel hits unless you give full broadside at range or simply get overmatched by a Yamato. If you think Iowa is squishy god forbid you ever play Lion, Alsace, or Jean Bart.

    No CV sniping...

    Oh yeah, he put that in the last line. Figured if people were explicitly making truces in all chat he would mention it before then. Just report/make ticket and then move on OP.
