If reviews are going up... Probably a week at the most... But I could be wrong.

Hey wait a sec...great review as always and all, but what about the "Kraken cammo" she was first shown in? Is that still for testers?

That's for the supertest reward version. It's the same ship, just a different camo. As was evident from the game files from the moment the sip was first leaked.

Question for those that played her...

 

Is Alabama equal to WarSpite, where they each play in their tier bracket ? (So A T6 match in WS and a T8 match in Alabama)

--> Both seem agile, both seem fragile (Both can mitigate damage by staying bow-on and careful exposing broadsides), and both can brawl but it's dangerous to do so?


 

That will help make my decision if buy or not.

I am not going to decide until I see the cost and how they bundle it

Shame about the unhistorical citadel height (especially with the news of Iowa and Montana having it corrected, especially since Iowa/Alabama share the exact same armor layout), but the rest of the ship seems to compensate for it perfectly.

Arguably, Alabama uptiers better than Warspite.  Warspite has bow-on immunity to most guns at tier 6 but none at tier 7 or 8.  Alabama has bow-on immunity to tier 8 and 9 guns and most tier 10 short of Yamato's.

Very high chance of 72$ CAD (same as Tirpitz) unbundled. For the rest that remains to be seen

Ok if she plays like a T8 WarSpite I'm for sure getting her.  Her agility is already decently good given the tier.  But in same tier matches ?

In other words, does she feel like playing a WarSpite?

Mouse would you recommend this over the Tirpitz or vice versa?

They play very differently.  Tirpitz is a close range brawler specialist.  She has to stay at range until she can safely close with an isolated enemy where she can tear them apart.  Tirpitz doesn't have the AA power of Alabama, but she's faster and far more durable.  Alabama specializes in using her guns at medium to long range.  She's far more fragile.  So ask yourself this:  Do you like to brawl or do you prefer to snipe?

Nice write up, LWM! The SoDak class is probably one of the best value-for-money battleships used during WWII, along with the Kongou- and King George V-class battleships. Very tempting, even though I don't play American battleships and already have three premium USN BBs.

You know, I was actually hoping that the ST version would be the Alabama and the normal premium version the Massachusetts. That would be a little more interesting than just Alabama ST and Alabama.

 

Cheerios.

Release date?

 

If I had to guess I'd say probably sometime this coming week.

For her Cons, you should add in that Alabama's sigma value is 1.9 (I think) when compared to NC's 2.2 (I think)

I think NC has 2.0, because the highest sigma in the game is Yamato's 2.1

NC's only goes up to 2.0, apparently. It's addressed in the review, I believe.

1.9 sigma isn't a flaw.  The game's sigma values between battleships vary from 1.5 up to 2.1.

Manoeuvrability

Mouse what does this mean. I can't spell worth a crap but even I know this doesn't seem right. Other than that I loved the review thanks for the positivity.
