3 battles.

Bouncing Yammy shells even from .03 km, was ramming him.

Yes she is fun, and worth it.

I have seen a few and thankfully none of them had beer can hats. I was wrecking a Bismarck with my Scharnhorst but at the same range it was like I was firing bb's against the Roma. I am so tempted.

$57.00 and well worth it.... just to make Yammy drivers cry.

I do not own this ship but I have encountered the Roma co-op battles driven by bots.  In one such occasions while driving my Baltimore, I landed a citadel hit on a Roma.  I was so surprised because I typically can't do that to battleships even if they are 1 tier lower.  So if you buy this ship, be extra careful as gun type heavy cruisers can hurt you bad if you show your side.

On the flip side, when you're driving a heavy cruiser and get hit by a Roma, it will ruin your day.  Most BBs can do heavy damage to heavy cruisers like the Baltimore but the Roma seems able to do this no matter what your angle is.

This ship seems to be designed as a anti-armor weapon, the heavier your armor, the more it'll hurt when she hits you.

It seems you're safer broadside to a Roma.  I've gotten some of my best hits on angled cruisers.

That tankiness is real.  I had a mino unload on me yesterday.  It would have melted my 'bama but Roma just shrugged it off.  Now the 'bama would have just deleted him when he was spotted, Roma?  Ehh.. maybe.

Read LWM's review of the ship, the guns are both fabulous and frustrating.

 

The vulnerable citadel is rectified if you know how to protect your sides in a BB.  Protect the sides and you can survive well in her.  The combination of speed, good protection in angled profiles, and better stealth than many Cruisers goes a long way in staying a live.
