Title says it all.  Drop that hydro...give it radar.  Make it the DoY it was meant to be!  And pay homage to history.

Ah, more ships to potf*ck poor tier 5 destroyers by pressing a key. :Smile_playing:

It's a good idea and all, but combined with British HE, lasting battleship presence, and endurance, it would be quite an unwelcomed change...

But, not a bad idea. Making DoY unique among British bbs as a high-impact battleship, instead of a brainless bb damage farm like the others.

Why do you think Missouri is being removed? 

 

Answer: Because putting radar on a battleship was a bad idea.

Because of a earlier match: I like this idea, good trade off for a plane. A Khab with 100 points left wanted to smoke up 6km from my Missouri. One klick, he light up and was killed 3 seconds later by my secondaries.

Because premiums are on a rotation, have always been and will always be?

Khab with smoke? Lel.

Maybe Wargaming hasn't said weather or not Missouri will return.

I feel it'll return.  Or at least sold  when it does for an increased premium.

But I do feel like the radar on the DoY would be a neat version of the ship.

Really they could let her keep the hydro and just make the rest of her stats like the tech tree KGV. That would make her at least fun which would make her a better premium then the POS she is now.

Radar instead of Hydro would be great, and historical also.

But they really need to buff the RoF and Rudder Shift, no matter what.

How about a new 'fire-control radar' consumable.  Only allows firing lock on BB/CV.  For CL/DD it functions like RPF, or maybe just shows it on the minimap or something.  In exchange, it provides a dispersion bonus against ships you can lock.

How about we restore the cruiser style setup she had.

You know, the one that was interesting and made something good of gimmicks, a rarity in this game.

More radar to farm the low level potatoes.

Because it was a terrible idea.

If you want a battleship that plays as a cruiser, play the Scharnhorst.

Or. . . if you want to customer build a new one, there are plenty of battlecruisers out there that are perfectly suited to that sort of thing.

This was a square peg in a round hole and had the predictable disastrous results.  All they needed to do was a "Premium KGV."  It wasn't hard.  They overthought the whole thing.

Even just one charge would do it.  With premium and superintendent, it would have three.  The cost being superintendent...which would play nicely with the reduced number of DCP...not to mention also play with history as the DoY radar actually did go out during the battle...but they got it working again.

It’s an interesting idea. Losing hydro would make the ship torpedo blind, which is a big deal. It would be a buff overall, but not a huge one, and would certainly change the role of the ship a bit.
