Awesome ship.

Love it - Giulio on steroids - AA sucks - HE is meh - turrets and speed are awesome - Fun factor: high

First battle: 1 cit - 3 kills - 72k dmg - Confederate & First Blood

Why is there a large Beer Can on top of this BB?

That is the special Kobayashi camo that gives extra bonuses above the regular perma camo. It is FUGLY and not sure worth the bonus boost if it forces you to see it all the time. You can get the Roma without that camo and buy the camo later for Doubloons if you change your mind and want it.

Yeah, I could not buy one with a beer can on top. No bonus is worth looking at that.

I was told it is a "boiler". A what? a "boiler" on the top of the ship like that? Um ok. Maybe a "boiler maker". LOL

Too fugly to even consider. The camo itself is fugly actually and make me want to gouge my eyes out with a dull instrument anyway so the beer can on the top is just the icing on the fugly cake. LOL :Smile_facepalm:

A boiler? LOL I guess that would make citadels easy for the reds. LOL. I'll get the non-Kobayashi one.

I couldn’t bare looking at the monstrosity of the Japanese style camo on an Italian ship. So I went basic... and it saved me 40 bucks. But nonetheless, I am quite content with my purchase.

The main battery is awesome. Aiming with her is comfortable. I could easy hit DD's over 10-12km because of the high shell speed.

She also earns good credits. I had a 90k damage game and ended with 350k credits plus after maintaince. Without premium it would have been 220k.

To me it looks like a weird Pope hat.  So my Roma will now be called Her Holiness. Historically, she did have a nasty hole punched right through her....

I wasn't really intending on buying the Roma anyways, given that I spent more than intended on santa boxes.  But OMG that special camo is not just ugly.  It's FUGLY!!!!  

And while this guy's camos looked appropriate on IJN ships, seeing Italian ships with Japanese characters on the side is just plain wrong.

And that beer can on top?  :Smile_facepalm:

Well on my [edited] laptop, moves great. Rounds seem to group ok at low range. Hopefully my main rig will connect to the network when I get home. *le sigh*

That's what might keep me from buying her.  I get so frustrated with Scharnhorst's regular overpens on cruisers that I'm not sure I could take another ship like that.  Pound for pound, I'd expect my Alabama will continue to be much more fun than Roma.  Harder hitting guns, better AA, better manuverability, lower citadel, and with Segal as commander, her turrets move quickly.

My feelings are, and I admit they are out there, that Roma is planned to get enough revenue to have been conservative on soft stats. If camping doesn't show the ship to have excellent stats then before the next say in 6-12 months there will be a minor uptick in some soft stats. Until then this will be a money printer for WG so they can be conservative.

I got the ultimate but don't care for the can on top...since it's a camo, we can take it off right and use the normal one as to not see that eye sore?

 

Hope they add an option to view the ship as normal even with that camo.

I'd just run the normal camo until I need credits, and when I go broke I can just go "Hold My Beer"

I think Kobayashi was drinking while making this camo.

speaking of which -- the premium shop doesn't detail what the special bonuses are for the beer can camo.
