Would you like the Duke if they buffed the ROF?

A lot of people have been really critical of the Duke of York when they introduced her in her current form. I was curious if they keep everything the same (reduced heal, hydro, good AA) and increased her ROF to KGV rate would you consider her acceptable?

Nope, not after seeing what it possibly could've been.

She is fine the way she is, she is nearly tied with the Kongo with best tech tree win rate and she is averaging a good amount more damage than the rest of the tech tree ships. This is over the past 2 weeks. She is doing just fine

 

The only thing I can think of a issue is she isn't OP like the Orion because they Orion is more of a T5 that was "slightly balanced" for T4, kinda like how the Konig Albert is to the Kaiser. If anything the Orion needs to be nerfed some

Duke of York, not Iron Duke.

I honestly don't have an issue with her. She hits hard, and I've been playing a lot of BB's with long reloads lately, so hers being under 30 is a win for me.

Not sure what stats you're looking at....:Smile_Default:

I honestly have no interest in this ship, it's a bottom feeder. I have the Nelson now, and can't see any reason I would take the Duke out instead....

But we're forced to earn her, simply to get some tier camos....:Smile_teethhappy:

To be fair we have 2 Dukes, it should have been specified

I was referring to the Iron Duke since that's what I misunderstood in the subject

Great post ! I've been thinking of getting the DOY but, I'm glad I held off .Too bad they didn't bring out the Vanguard at Tier VII or VIII I'd hit the bank for that ship!

Interesting chart too, the Nelson and KGV are my favorites in the British BB line and the charts reflects that there very competitive at there Tier ..a bit off subject but  I bet the Colorado's win rates gone up some since the latest buff .

Alright anyway looking at the past 2 weeks the Duke of York is running in the middle of all T7 BBs with WR, average damage, and XP. Why does it need a buff because it appears to be balanced to me? I'm using na.warships.today and comparing T7 BBs for the last 2 weeks

If she had a buffed rate of fire I probably would buy her right now. As it is... I'll decide near the end of the campaign... all I know is I wouldnt have bought her at all if she had stayed as first seen...
