  1. First off I would like to say that i am very grateful of the fact that WG actually Tries to fix issues and make the player base happy (Unlike Gajin, EA, and many others) and granted its not perfect, its nice that they are trying. So with all the West Virginia Threads going around I figured i would give my impute on it as Colorado is one of my favorite ships with about 342 games in it as of this post and i want what is best for the class. I would recommend the following: Suggestion 1: Give the Colorado the Marylands 1945 Hull with the 5'38"s and buff the sigma back to 2.0 instead of 1.9/1.8. 2: Add WV-44 as ether a Free XP ship or a Premium ship and give it the Massachusetts Treatment, this would be the following: Give it a lower Sigma of ether 1.8 or 1.7 and also raise the reload to 32 seconds instead of Colorado's 30, Give it a Slightly weaker heal then Colorado only with a 60-50 second cooldown instead of 80 and the same Damage control party, Give it better performing secondaries with the +40% to Accuracy and a longer range, Give it an Improved Torpedo Belt as that was one of the main reasons it is so much wider, (I'd say around 45-50% instead of the 37% or so of Colorado) 3 Make the current WV-41 be Maryland 1941, I understand this means some Changes to the 3D Model but this would work best because then the whole class would be in the game instead of 2 of the same ship. I may have missed some things here but I feel this would make the Colorado and West virginia-1944 Balance Pretty well as they would have the Same secondaries and would have Comparable AA with these hulls. this would be the Colorado C hull: and this would be West Virginia-1944 (Obviously)

  3. I had a comment last night that I wanted to flesh out more. Concerning the addition of the (early 1920s and less desirable) West Virginia, I looked at the ship and immediately lost all desire to purchase it. I've not been one of those players around since beta or active on the forums, but additional US standard type battleships have been one of the classes I've been looking forward to the most (it was the topic that even brought me to the forum). I really do desire most a T7 version of either Tennessee or California post refit the most (as I do love my Arizona and I enjoyed New Mex in the grind), but the addition of the last and greatest of standards was a highly anticipated moment. West Virginia should be the apex of the line, the cream of the crop, and the Standard that can best stand against the newer battleships. However, at the same time, I realize that WG is going to go out of its way to turn a profit, and a quick turn around on an A hull is, depressingly, one of the ways to go. And I can't hold that against them; while I do not own them myself, one of my clan mates does have Mutsu and Kii and she finds both of them to be some of her favorite ships to play in general. I did consider Ashitaka in the past, but reviews that I read about her led me away from purchasing the vessel at the time. That's the sum total of my experience of the down-tiered battleships. As such, I don't doubt that they could be balanced around and could even be decent ships at the tier. However, I believe this is not the way to go about that situation, especially as it deprives WG the chance to turn additional profit down the line with a good post-refit West Virginia. As such, I figured I would lay out my own recommendation on how to handle the change so WG can have its cake and eat it too: T6 Premium - Colorado Yes, make the T6 vessel Colorado. This was the only unmodernized battleship of the three Colorado class, and it would be most fitting down at T6 in its old A hull form. This also clears the way for its replacement, which allows for potential further changes. T7 Tech Tree - Maryland I say make Maryland the tech tree variant, as this provides a potential Hull C refit in the future, which would modernize the AA weaponry and not much else. With the upcoming CV work, to the best of my understanding, AA will be made important again, so the buff brought about by a Hull C should be countered by that. From what I have read, Colorado as a tech tree ship is in need of a buff as it stands. This may be sufficient enough to buff the vessel without altering other statistics, such as improving Sigma again. T8 Premium - West Virginia This is where it is difficult - fitting WV in at T7 would mean likely sacrificing her accuracy. Making her a secondary ship only at T7 would be hard, as she lacks the speed to dictate engagement range, and it would be opposite of her actual status of having the best fire control of the sisters. It would either be that, nerfing her AA stats past what they should be, nerfing her reload speed akin to Arizona, just something in that regard. Or, one could put her at T8. Have accuracy as good as the old Colorado and better range, coming close to the NC in those terms (perhaps better Sigma but worse dispersion per km, as the latter I believe is the case). Her hull is short and her turrets are closer, so you have more similar firing angles in comparison to the newer vessels. Have torpedo protection likely better than Alabama. Have 4/5s the AA and secondaries of Massachusetts. And the biggest cost is being limited to 20-21 knots without a speed flag. It also is incredibly beamy, so it makes a big juicy target for HE spammers. If she needs additional buffs to actually be competitive at T8, those could be a number of things. Adjust the heal amount to compensate. It doesn't have to be Nelson's ship printer, but it can be higher than normal. Sigma, as mentioned, could be adjusted upwards - 2.05, perhaps even 2.1. You'd have a slow firing ship using old ammunition and that doesn't pierce as well as newer ammunition, so every shot would have to count more. Perhaps you could give her the Slot 5 Steering Gears Mod 3 - it'd fit with her ability to drive her shafts in opposite directions (Being turboelectric), and it'd grant her that extra bit of maneuverability to dodge incoming fire. Perhaps that combined with better accel through turns would allow her to maintain most of her speed in a turn, allowing better performance throughout. I had mentioned in other comments even a custom flavor consumable for any turboelectric vessel, Evasive Maneuvering, to simulate that - a consumable to reduce rudder shift, tactical diameter, and accel/deccel for 15-20 seconds while active. This could even take the place of the spotter plane, so those who would be sniping anyway would have to give up that extra maneuverability to do so. - Either way, it'd be a premium that is not necessarily easy to play, requires conscious awareness of the battlefield and a plan on how to engage it as you cannot react quickly to changes on the battlefield. It'd be a premium that would introduce a new playstyle to T8 (there are lots of fast and medium fast battleship, but no slow battleships) and it would reward patient play while punishing overextension. I don't see how it could be overpowering, just a tough hyperaccurate brick that can be outrun fairly successfully. - Oh, and if a US T7 premium battleship is needed, then there is a near immediate solution. T7 Premium California/Tennessee It would basically be putting New Mexico's turrets on West Virginia's hull, to be crude. It would have more guns of smaller caliber, and perhaps better accuracy, than the T7 tech tree Maryland, and it would have better torpedo protection, but it would also be one knot slower and only have roughly equivalent AA. It would also have the particular flaws of a 14" gun vs the 16" guns used on Maryland. It wouldn't have the secondary range of WV just because it would be the rough equivalent of Maryland rather than filling out a whole new niche on its own.
