After what seemed like an eternity of anticipation by many, I'm just curious to see the community's initial thoughts are on Roma now that she has been finally released.

I already have Giulio Cesare in port, so I'm not in a dire need of an Italian BB trainer.  However, if reviews for Roma are good enough, I may pick her up at some point.  She'd have a tough time competing for attention with North Carolina and Amagi in my port, though.

He'd ban you for not staying on topic... :Smile_playing: jk

Roma looks to be in the meh category for me. Not underpowered, no overpowered. I'll pass on it. Need to have some ships available to get in this year's Christmas crates.

The beer can is just...well I need to be constructive so I will say that many manhours were put into the camo of that ship and surely it must be there for a purpose.

See...now was that so difficult? Appreciate you being constructive but don't be afraid to tell us what you don't like about the Roma. I get it though about the proverbial elephant in the room.

I don't have her, but I seriously don't think her camouflage looks nice.

I also appreciate a battleship having a citadel for once..

I like the camo...  But everytime I look at Roma I'm expecting to see Solid Snake on the deck trying to steal that AI pod off of it

I have played 2-3 games in the roma since purchase, the only real issue i have with it so far is the sigma. The "beer can" isnt an issue for me because I didnt pick up that camo, and I will not pick it up(dont like the look of it, and way too pricey).

I liked the beer can until I saw it in battle, that thing is just insanely huge. The rest of the camo is beautiful, and the designs on the can itself are great. But man, that's not a good size.

Nope, I have ZERO warning points left so I'm treading on thin ice.

An elephant on Roma would have looked better, actually.

Got it without the beer can topper. I like her so far. And she is a beautiful ship.

The Carthargians tried both against Rome and failed (K, the ships looked different but they tried)

Honestly, i want to get Roma, but I'm definitely not going to get her with that camo. The beer can kills it for me.

Just curious, is there any way to disable having to see the Roma with that horrible beercan design? I like to keep my engagements somewhat historical, and I prefer not seeing ARP, HSF, & Halloween camos. It ruins the game for me.

Thanks,

T.

Do this, but disable that option instead of enabling it:

Yes, I'm aware of that filter, but I thought it only worked in port. Does it disable it in game from other players?

If so, that's great thank you!

Well, the poll did say "initial" impression.  Not having acquired her yet, my initial impression is on her stats.  I have a certain aptitude and style of play.  Looking at the pros and cons, and stats in general, this ships seems to fit both my aptitude and style.  But I won't know for sure until I give her a go.

She’s a pretty mediocre battleship (or a mediocre pretty battleship) with comfortable gun and turret performance, and serious issues with her armor scheme. Her high water citadel can just about be managed through awareness and angling on the part of the player, but the extreme fragility of her turrets disqualifies her from being anything more than a footnote or novelty.
