Hello everyone, UrPeaceKeeper here with the complete How to Play series on the Royal Navy Battleships.  I realized that I had forgotten to post these as I was doing them but here are the nine videos that outline captain skills and each ship's history and in game play style.  For the most part the RNBB line has solid ships focusing on a mix of good concealment with good HE and ok AP.  There are a few outliers there (most notably Lion and Conqueror having good AP as well as good HE), but most of the line is workable even if I don't personally enjoy them!

 

So lets kick this off with the captain skills video.  This video is not meant to be the exhaustive or definitive list of builds but a suggestion on builds to give you ideas on how to build your own:

 

On to the ships:  Bellerophon (Bell-air-oh-fan, I butchered this...)

 

Orion:

 

Iron Duke:

 

Queen Elizabeth:

 

King George V:

 

Monarch:

 

Lion:

 

Conqueror:

 

 

Hopefully you guys find some use from the information found in these videos! :)

Despite that; I'm in a funk/lull right now; and just don't have any motivation to progress up the RN BB line...

There will be more Krakens to come I'm sure of it!  Orion is alright.  The line as a whole feels pretty average to me.  Certain ships lack real carry potential even though their damage output is far and above other ships in their tier and I think that's why I don't enjoy playing them very much!

I found that this line will do that to you.  I'm not overly fond of them myself.  The lack of carry potential saps the fun out of them in randoms and some ships are just flat bad... Monarch is almost as bad as CBT/OBT Colorado as a grind wall...

You can say that again.  There's no joy in topping the EXP charts for your team if you always lose.  I suspect the only reason I was able to raise my winrate for the KGV to 45% at the end point of the grind is because of the wackiness of MM caused by the North Cape campaign, causing many Duke of Yorks to appear, leveling the playing field for me somewhat.

Also these ships are so comically bad in a knife fight, one of my replays ended up in a Jingles video, starting at 3:15.

It's a line tailor made to just make you sail away from the fun and just keep slowly picking away at the enemy.

Dang, Alzheimer setting in then, really I could have sworn it was new. Maybe I just never looked closely enough. This is embarrassing, but not as embarrassing as the time I told the lady at the Jet Ski's, that she probably should not ride in her condition, and she said oh, I'm not pregnant.
