I've been contemplating on purchasing the Nueve de Julio as of late and like most people I'm sure decided to research as much as I could about her. Videos, articles, forums, stats, etc. And the only difference I can find between these two ships are the current live server stats. It's not a huge margin though it is noticeable in win rate and damage output. I can only assume that this must be due to maybe player familiarity with the American play style or something of the like that could cause this. So I guess what I'm looking for is confirmation from community that they are completely identical ships. It would also be interesting to hear people's thoughts on the cause of the differences in stats as well!
I have to say, I read @LittleWhiteMouse's review on Boise/Nueve as I always do. I bought the ship but I was a bit skeptical about how well a heal would offset a Helena having slow reload, gimpy range and slow speed. It actually works though. Don't get me wrong the range in particular is an enormous downside. I can't put into words how bad a 13.5k or so range is ... but that heal. I blew apart an enemy Mahan and blundered into the Atlanta, Helena, and Indianapolis supporting him, all by myself, at 9km. I escaped behind an island and basically reprinted almost half of a new ship … twice. I really never realized how much adding a heal turns an otherwise lackluster ship into an effective one. Boise has basically printed out a dreadnought achievement for me in almost every fight. (As a caveat, I am using my 19point Cleveland captain in her.) If you know what you are doing and get a non-horrible map, this ship is surprisingly powerful. You can also use the short range to your benefit. I found that if the enemy BBs don't move up (which is often) you can close behind your own DDs, slaughter the enemy DDs, and then fall off detection because your gun range is too short for them to spot you on their own.
