AA upvotes for the new AA beast!

Isn't Lert or Zoup supposed to be here before everyone else?

Wish I had some more details on the camo before I purchased the standard ship.  C'est la vie.

I didn't even have details on them until this morning.  That's (in part) what delayed my review.

You could always purchase a second one. :Smile_Default:  They should give you the difference in gold.  Maybe, if you haven't played her yet, a refund?

Refund sounds good.  Won't be playing it till much later today.  Would hold off until the refund went through.  Thanks for the idea.

That's a bit of a bummer.  May explain why people are having issues even unlocking it.

 Kii's torpedoes are alright but they're held back by four big flaws. 
  • Like all battleship mounted torpedoes currently in the game, they only have a 6km range, limiting their use to point-blank engagements.  This isn't so bad, but it would have been nice if her secondaries were beefier to make wandering into this range more palatable. 

What about Mutsu?

This doesn't really tick any of the boxes I look for when considering a premium, especially a Japanese battleship. Pass.

Thanks for the review, Mouse. As for the ship, I'm pretty conflicted about it. I already have a Mutsu for IJN things, and a Missouri for income things. Plus, she sounds a bit unpleasant to play. Hm.

Good review as always Mouse. Already got it, and got the camo. She's quite fun and IMHO almost at beastly level. The guns. Well last match they were accurate enough for me!

Still disappointing they didn't buff the sigma nor give her her original quad torp launchers. I don't see why it's so hard to at least mirror Amagi's gun performance and make it a pair of quad torp launchers; Tirpitz is still going to be slightly better on the grounds of better secondary ranges and torpedo angles, and Tirpitz still has a faster traverse and turret armor over Kii.

Gods this makes me wish I had the money to get her, another battleship that'd add to my floatilla nicely.

Hell I'm a cruiser main(though second is BBs) and I couldn't pass this up. Now I have to finish Nagato so I have the sisters.

I think she did just fine in her first go around. 10 point skipper.
