looks like the conqueror? at least on paper?

pretty good guns (only second to yamato, which 72s turn just too slow)

best concealment

best maneuverability

size seems pretty small (just eyeball, no data)

Conq if you like driving a large cruiser. Yami if you like laughing at people who think angling will somehow save them.

I agree yamato got the best guns, but 72s turn is almost twice as slow as others, which means lots of missed opportunities

Conq if you like farming meaningless damage. Yam if you like winning matches. Kurfuerst if you like driving around an angry glacier with pissed off CLs strapped to your sides.

30k damage to a battleship's citadel is more valuable than 60k fire damage. Fire damage can be healed back.

People stare themselves blind on the damage Conqueror is doing, forgetting to look at its winrate. Yes, the Conq does a lot of damage, but it's not translating into wins, compared to, say, Yamato. That's because the damage Conqueror does is mostly fire damage to battleships, something a battleship is well suited to tank a lot of and survive.

Compare that to a Yamato, who mostly does AP pen damage, which is damage that sticks.

That's why Yamato carries and Conqueror less so.

yamato seems way too slow, I tried british to orion, it's painful to aim/turn

btw warships.today stops working? where can I see win statistics

I don't own a Conqueror, but honestly I haven't been that impressed by them when I've seen them in matches.  Of course, I pretty much only play cruisers at Tiers 9 and 10, so maybe I'd feel differently in a battleship.

 

. . . but while I love battleships at Tiers 8 and below.  At tiers 9 and 10 its dull.

Yamato is the squishiest BB at T10

 

The guns aren't good enough to compensate.

Do you just want to watch the world burn? => Conqueror

Do you love the lolpen? => Yamato

Do you like to brawl and watch your secondaries light up in a fiery display? => Grosser Kurfurst

Do you want hard hitting AP and good AA in a 'balanced' package? => Montana

Fads aside, the 'best' for you is the one that makes you happiest.  If you love Bismarck, you'll love GK.  If you love fire breathing cruisers, you'll love Conqueror.  If you love your North Carolina, then Montana is for you.  And of course, Yamato is a thing with no ready counterpart, so there is that too.

They all have something going for them.  It's just a question of whether that something aligns with your playstyle.

But the AP is not bad, so that is on the people that play them.

Let me rephrase that. The lolpen does not compensate enough for the squishiness for Yamato to be the best T10BB.

Conqueror has the insane heal to compensate.

 

Conq also has an underwater citadel, and insane concealment.

Montana AA is over rated, I get as many plane kills with GK as Montana does in most games. 

 

AA is also not something a ship should be balanced on, it is too situational.

You can't citadel BBs in it... Like literally no possible because of the short fuse.

So you are saying you would give up the lolpen to buff other aspects of the ship?
