American and British BBs just plain blow. Their Hulls stink, aiming sucks, and are siting ducks for the cheep torpedo bomber planes. I know the game's makers are Russian and as such hate America and Britain so USN and RN suck on purpose. I say that is dumb, sorry Iam not interested in playing a Russian ship. I think they should make ships of all nations good. But no that can't happen. The snowhead game makers would not like the idea of American and Britt ships being good. In fact here is what Russia thinks of America and Britain visually.5a1d8423dd6c2_untitled2.thumb.png.117a6afa156f03ae106f2c2c53f59841.png

Generally speaking, no, American and British BBs are fine.  Every line has some stinkers, but overall I find American, British and Japanese BBs pretty balanced.  German BBs seem to have a few more issues, good and bad.

Join the master race (of battleships) and literally stomp on the blebs with your great turtleback and godly secondaries.

 

The only issue is those ******** Russian cruisers and their British BB's slinging HE at their max range...that gets old. 

 

(but so much more enjoyable when they get stupid and go broadside and you double citadel them.)

     US BB's are fine.  NM and Colorado seem to shrug off torps, and Colorado is one of the few really tanky ships in the game for her tier, even without the coming HP buff, plus she's the start of the 7.2 km 2ndaries range or better.  And put that super repair party on the Missouri and you've got about 30 sec of damage immunity.  Guns are fine once you get to 14 km or closer.

     RN BB's also fine.  Don't know what the math is for dispersion etc. here, but their rifles seem to hit really well for me, even at the ship's max. range.  Especially for Lion and Conqueror.  And please use AP.  HE is just annoying and can be healing potioned away.  Don't have problems here.

     When I lose it's usually because I got in a poor position, or missed a salvo.  Most games can be won or lost if just one or two of your salvos misses, especially at higher tiers where targets can move faster and are broadside less frequently.  I swear, if I could have one skill second to none, it would be absolutely devastatingly accurate gunfire on my part.  Just damaging every target you aim at is incredibly demoralizing for the enemy. 

Subject them to constant damage and harassment and there's not much they can do in return if they're running, having their plans disrupted, and  can't shoot as well as you do.

You really shouldn't waste your time typing up a rational response in threads like this that lack a specific, clear issue.  He's not going to read it and say to himself "wow, I never thought of it like that!" and suddenly pull his head out of his [edited].

 

He isn't looking for help.
