After 13K random battles I did something in the Nikolai I have never down before. My first 6 salvo's fired hit 6 ships for Confederate my 7th Salvo got me a Kraken and High Caliber. The disgusting part was I got 6 kills and this wasn't even remotely close to my highest damage game. Positioning was Key and the fact there were no CV's in the match helped. 

That is all

No CVs without those pesky planes buzzing all around makes for a tour out in your favorite ship kind of enjoyable.

Is Nikolai that good? (I assume you are good too)

I got Nikolai from last Santa crates but have never played it yet.

If you know how to shoot accurately at medium to long ranges, then yes. Nikolai rewards good accuracy, positioning, and map awareness.

It has the top W/R of all BB's with the Konig Albert trailing at a mere 56.91% W/R.

I've always wanted one.  I got Santa boxes, and, alas...  I have yet to receive one.  It's like the Type 59 of Warships.

I don't want to seal club, I just want to complete the set!

I haven't had much luck in the Nikolai... I think its because I was playing during heavy CV meta, can't remember the reason... it was shortly after new years i believe. 10 games, 40% win rate, 30k avg damage.

its strong in certain ways, but if you're focused or targeted by a CV your toast. It's great at shooting HE at DD's because of the sigma. It shoots triangles basically, but they're usually not too spread apart, so if a DD turns tward or away from you, one of the shells will hit him as long as you time it right.

Nikolai as a T4 was one of a few which had special MM treatment early on, in that it saw T6 ships regularly.  It did very well against T6 BBs and I learned how to fight DDs in it.  The worst was T6 carriers.

Yeah but the Imperator Nikolai at least has a couple of 63mm's for a lucky shot on the way in and the four 7.62 Maxims to tag them on the way out. All the Arkansas Beta can do is drive like a drunk and have the cook throw yesterday's biscuits at them.

I bought the Rasputin camo, played it like that a few games, then switched back.  It looks cool, I think I just prefer the ship as she is - with other camo of course.
