1. Roma is good port decoration

2. Only tier 8 battleship that can tank tier X bb shells with confidence

3. Only tier 8 battleship besides Bismarck class to not burn easily

4. Very very stealthy

5. Only tier 8 battleship that looks at a tier X battleship's belt at any range and can say: "I think I can penetrate that"

6. PHAST TURRET TRAVERSE

My classmates, my clanmates, my friends have bought the Roma. I tried Roma on others' account. She can be very good.

I know, individual playstyle may vary, if you focus on killing cruisers Roma may not be a good choice.

But, 1. you know WG usually don't refund premium ships 2. tons of review of Roma, you should know what you are signing up for 3. the price tag is there

There really shouldn't be much complaining IMO. Roma is Roma, a tanky stealthy anti-BB tier 8 battleship, an expensive one too, no more and no less.

as a proud owner of a Roma all I can tell you to do is LEARN TO PLAY IT if you put a little more brain power in to it you can get good results and I don't even have a ten point capitan yet. I have got hit by all nine of the yamato's shells and taken no damage on several occasions and have citideled battleships at 15  Km+ just because you can play it because it's not easy doesn't mean it is a bad ship

Ok, how about this.

I do have Roma.

She's a great ship. Tricky to learn to play (which is probably why you haven't figured her out) but very strong in the right hands.

As for your queston, how she's been doing lately, she's pulling in a higher winrate and higher DPG than any other T8 battleship with more than a thousand games played.

Well, technically speaking I did not buy the Roma. I had a friend gifting me one.

And yes, Roma is a good ship. If you can't make her work, maybe you can ask the Forums for advice, maybe we can help you improve your build or your playstyle?

I bought the Roma, strange can-mo and all, and I like it. 

And by the way, why are you still here? I thought you quit the forums several months ago?

A third of your ships are premiums, you don't have a tier X. And your stats are mediocre, ironically your max frags at 8 comes from the Roma at a respectable 5.. You can buy ships but not skill. You of anyone don't get to tell people who gets an opinion and who does not.

I originally did not enjoy the Roma, as others have stated, it takes a bit to grow on you. Understand the gun dispersion is a bit high and it has an insane penetration value; once you learn those you will find a BB that can do well at 15km and closer, has solid AA for it's self, and can do some good damage to t9 & t10 BBs. The two tricks are to learn to use the stealth & maneuverability and understand where to aim depending on how close you are to your target (as well as type of target). It is probably one of the few BBs I have no issue firing at spotted DDs at 10km out from; the shells are that fast that lead times are not a problem.

The Roma will not be for everyone, if you want to sit and bow tank, this may not be the best ship for you (though it can do it to a degree). If you like wandering around the map and firing at decent ranges, then enjoy the Roma.  :)

What about them? First off I'm not the one trying to play guardian of the thread here. Secondly, I have 6% higher win rate then you. The gap between us is wide enough to drive a Kurfurst through.

Dude, if stats are the gatekeeper of being able to have a valid opinion on this board, you should probably never post one ever again.

Love my Roma! You just have to learn how to use her strengths and know what her weaknesses are. Big money maker. I go in with my Destroyer take the brunt of the battle, back out and heal. Then do it all over again. I know the $100.00 was steep in price but they let me play here for free for so long I thought I needed to contribute back to WarGaming.

Doing fine, but today I've been on some absolutely potato teams.  The highlight today was killing a Tirpitz in a brawl while bow angling and bouncing Yamato shells, then turning to Yamato to plant AP into her bow citadel.  But the reds got 1000 pts before I could finish Yamato off in the knife fight.

 

I like mine, but I like all my Tier VIII Battleships.

Except for Monarch.

 

Also OP, the only BBs you own are Tier V October, Tier VIII Roma, and Tier V Caesar.  Not many BB games total.  Most importantly, prior to Roma, no BB experience above Tier V.  That is why you're struggling with Roma.
