I've heard a lot of bad things about this ship...but after getting through about 2/3 of the grind I'm beginning to like her.  The big surprise for me...her AP is better than I thought it would be.

I want to like her so badly, but her gun dispersion likes to troll me hard.

She is a disappointment after the KG V, where as the Bismarck and North Carolina really shine at tier 8 for their respective lines, I don't feel it from the Monarch.  Looking forward to the Lion and Conq, the two ships that bookcase the special flavor of the Brit BB line along with the Orion/ Iron Duke.

I agree with both of you. Still a better ship than I expected, although I still have a long grind ahead of me.

I like Monarch better than KGV. Already at Lion but kept both KGV and Monarch. Still play her daily and do decently.

I motored though it and didn't keep it, but that's more because it's a paper ship than anything else.  I didn't need another T8 battleship.  That said, I thought it was well balanced and quite playable.

The AP on Monarch is good and I have never used HE in that ship, I enjoyed the grind.

I don't mind Monarch, but I won't be keeping her.

I have tried hard to like her but she just feels lack lustre to me.  She isnt slow but isnt blisteringly fast. Her armor is ok but not great. Her guns are decent but not outstanding in hitting power or accuracy.  Her AAA suite is ok ... she is just so much meh and so little YAY.  Compared to Bismarck , NC  and Amagi all of which have noticeable strengths and weaknesses she is bland and uninspiring.  I desperately hope Lion will be more engaging.

Worst tier 8 BB in the game BY FAR in my opinion.
