Should low tier Battleships be nerfed?

I don't know about higher tiers i will admit that but in the lower tiers these battleships suck all the fun out of the game with their insane alpha strike damage. It is NOT fun to launch volley after volley after volley (sometimes multiple ships) at a BB to do little damage to the ship only to have it get 1 lucky attack in that takes 75%+ hp from your ship. I have heard DD's are the answer to BB's but not at low tier they are not for they are slower and torps have very limited range so getting anywhere close to a BB is almost instant death. 

 

I just think that lower tier BB's need a nerf to their survivibility or their damage (and I say damage)....

Uhh many of the low tier bbs are food for dds often times. Just look at how the Clemson or Isokaze does at eating low tier bbs.

U r duin it rong.

 

If you can't waste a low tier BB in a DD, then it's a result of your personal skill level. If you can't dodge a BB volley twice a minute, then it is a matter of your personal skill level. BBs are already at a significant disadvantage when facing off against a DD. Learn how to play them. Read up or watch videos on DD strategies.

Mods delete this post I am leaving the game and I do not even care anymore. All I die to is stupid BB's that can take 75+% of your life in 1 hit regardless of your angle at 16+km which is total [edited] and i do not need this frustration i will take my money and give it to another game company.

If you want to learn how to beat them just ask for help rather than giving up. There are many experienced players on the forums who could even look at a replay for you and give you tailored advice if you would be open to it. TBH you only have 70 battles and have much to learn but if you do it can be very rewarding.

Lol, low tier BBs?  Low tier BBs SUCK.  Terrible accuracy, slower then a boat, no secondaries, no AA, if you cant handle a low tier BB, your royally fked against a higher, or even mid tier one....

With respect, you have no idea what you're talking about. You will, but you don't yet. A more constructive topic would have been "I'm new and struggling against battleships, please advise."

OP if you are losing that much health then stop sailing broadside to them. Also if you are in a cruiser and not doing damage you are aiming at the wrong parts of the ship.

Yep. 

Also low tier BBs don't suck, like seriously try telling me with a straight face these suck:

 

Konig Albert, Ark Beta, Nikolai, Ishizuchi (literal god mode), Texas. 

Wyoming, New York, Kongo, (South Carolina?), Nassau, Kaiser, Konig, Bellepheron, Orion, Iron Duke. 

Literally all of the USN, KM, and RN lines from 3-5 are monster level ships. Every single low tier BB premium is also stupidly overpowered (maybe with Mikasa as an exception). 

 

Yes these suck: 

Kawachi, Myogi

Have a nice time.  I guess 'easy' is still too hard.  Have a great day playing Hello Kitty Online!

If you are losing 75% of your Hp with one salvo os probably because you are sailing in straight line, try to WASD and dodge. You can also angle the ship to make AP shells bounce. 

 

And if you are not dealing demage you are probably aiming to the wrong parte of the ship, try to aim for the bow/stern, deck and superstructure of the ship. Dont aim for the belt. 

 

There are several videos in YT and post arpund the forum that might help you.

They don't need a nerf man.  Play some more battles or play IJN dds, especially at low tiers, they are deadly to bbs.

Don't even have to be IJN.  I ran circles around a Brit BB left alone (T3) with a Derzki...and I'm not even good at it.

Secondary batteries are so worthless in low tiers that you ought to be able to drive up right next to a BB and fire torpedoes at point blank range if there are no cruisers about.

Not as much that, as a full speed DD can be inside secondary range, and not get hit enough by said secondaries to matter, while pumping 4-8 torps into the BB.
