So I find myself on Strait with the Nikolai Nikolayevich.

 

Someone blurts out:

 

Oh good! We have already won since we have a Nikolai!

\

:panic_fish:

 

Hey, it's only my second game in it. Talk about undue pressure.

 

Takeway: Don't think you can camp if there's a lone Nikolai on your team. :(

And no, we lost that match and the next one and the next one and the next one, even with my "Win 4 Free"  Nikolai.  It IS NOT gaurenteed winner at all anymore, and you are beyond tasty bait for carriers

After 75 battles, I'm at a 66% WR in my Nikolai. My WR with any other T4 BB would probably be 55-60%, so I can't say it's all due to the ship, but some of it surely is. She is very, very powerful, and that 36 second reload is, IMO, a mixed blessing in disguise, giving you plenty of time to think and plan strategically between shots.

You still depend on your team. Had a nearly 200k damage game but the potato train went straight in the camping BB of the other team, our CV was clueless and the last BB sailed into a corner and went AFK. Or the other team died to fast so you cannot do enough damage. Such teams get my WR down to 60% and my average damage to 65k...

The thing is, it has absolute garbage for AA, you need an AA cruiser escort to increase the chance to win with an enemy carrier...
