Ok, This isn't your typical review.  You'll understand when you see the video.  I will say that Koenig Albert finally has met it's T3 match.  I think something is slightly askew when a T3 BB can light 18 fires in a round.  These are all the fires I set in the course of my 4 round grind in the Bell.  I used HE only.

Just puts it into perspective how far behind the times South Carolina and Kawachi are, when Nassau, Koenig Albert and now Bellerophon are so far ahead of them it's not even funny anymore.

I couldn't finish the video that music was truly awful.

The BB looks good but I'm wondering about the musical abilities of the Limmies.

So true.

There is a lot of power creep that left some ships behind (e.g. New York, New Mexico, and more), but South Carolina and Kawachi are in a class by themselves. Talk about bad...

Those two flaming turds need a buff badly. 

 

As a matter of fact all the legacy lines kinda need a little looking at...

IKR? It might just be my age speaking but all throughout I thought this would be a better fit more pleasant to listen to:

Yeah, it's probably just my age.

Yup, made the mistake of trying to play this BB like a BB last night, got burned to the waterline pretty quick. Bellerophon shoots Greek Fire.

@Lert Well at least that song has more words in it than the other one, not to mention a proper verse and chorus structure. 

And don't blame your age, Lert cat is timeless.

The British line seems to take more of a beating on superstructure hits than other BB's, so there is that - like losing 10k health from a non-crit salvo.

Hahahaha.  Sorry...  not a fan of Prodigy I guess.  This is 90s music.  I figured it was the most fitting music for the situation, but I imagine not everyone's cup of tea.

Me, either.  Muted fairly quickly.

 

It is fitting, but definitely not to everyone's tastes.

Was't that on one of the Matrix soundtracks? 
Speaking of Matrix soundtrack, need to make a montage of seal clubbing all the new BBs set to Clubbed to Death.

Yeah...  I don't begrudge anyone who feels that way.  I have a fairly eclectic taste in music which ranges from anything and everything...

Actually, for those who played PS back in the day, I believe this song was featured in Wipeout XL

Can Mikasa and Kawachi please get their secondary ranges matching her main gun ranges now?  And have a special exception for Manual Secondaries 60% accuracy buff also affecting them?  It's still a 4pt skill, and would require a dedicated captain (or a temporary high-tier captain in Mikasa), but it buffs them indirectly and brings in some good old age of sail broadside barrage.

Forgot about this one...  I don't think it would have quite worked as well...  a little too slow.  Maybe for a Conqueror vid.

Johny Cash - Burning ring of fire.

One verse is even quite appropriate:

 

And I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down as the flames were rising higher
It burns, burns, burns,
And it burns, burns, burns,
The ring of fire

Agree; power creep has had a much more dramatic effect at lower tiers.
