Hello I purchased the Alabama a few days ago and I really enjoy the ship. It really feels like a baby Montana. Most of the games I get in are high tier X games. Meaning there's only 2-3 tier 8s and the rest are 9/10
That being said ive won and survived the tier 10 matches going from 1 tier X match to my second one, was a huge learning curve I was actually getting yelled at by the team because I was afraid and didn't know how to play the Alabama. After insults and injury I decided to go brawl and it turned out more effective then I thought.
Of course my luck would have it that the first ship I come in contact with was indeed the Montana we traded a few shots and eventually went our own ways.
It came down to the end of the game 3 ships on each team my two ships on other side of the map, and then I see the Montana come around an island. We were both half health. And to spare the even longer details I 1v1d this Montana and won. Sounds insane I was freaking out. I watched some videos about the Alabama before I purchased it mainly flamu's videos and I used the module for the -20% rudder which is amazing on bb's and was able to angle against nearly every shot from the Montana taking nearly no damage after a good 5 minute fight he had me on fire (yes Montana was shooting he at me) and I was under 5k health
I shot my last salvo to finish him off seconds away from capping out for the win.
Crazy part 85% of the damage I did that game was to the Montana kind of a bad first game too.
These are my personal pros and cons
Fantastic armor, specially when angled properly
It's a beautiful ship
makes good credits
Turns great(with rudder module)
Decent concealment (with module)
I honestly haven't found one yet in my opinion.
These are my thoughts on the tier 8 premium battleship USS Alabama.
I'm interested in your thoughts on anything about the ship or a great, or bad game you had in it.
Thanks for reading.
