Duca Degli Abruzzi

Was this ship release and I missed it.  I keep finding info on it, but never that it was sold or anything.

Don't wait for it. Worse than Duca Di Pasta and at a higher (tougher) tier.

One I'll skip, having Duca Di Pasta sitting in port, as it can't compete.

It's got a bad case of Huang He syndrome.  They have a problem with Abruzzi; they already stuck d'Aosta at T6, they can't put Abruzzi at 6 also.  They can't make it fit at 7.

May be so but I'd rather play Buddy/De Grasse/Cleveland before Duca.

Yeh but is nice rolling in something you dont often play. Also its funnyier then shi* watching BB babies cry about DD's hitting them with torps meanwhile its actually your 12km torps you hit them with

I mean, they could balance her at tier VII, but yeah, she really should've been tier VI. It's awkward because they've both buffed and nerfed her from her actual stats.

Buddy and Cleveland are better to farm bbs. But Duca is better to farm DDs. When well played Duca has more impact into the battle.

Yeh. But the thing i like about duca is when i engage Bb's they just arnt able to hit me. Duca is too thin, fast and maneuverable

I find the d'Aosta to be a fun ship. It is particular though. I hope to like the Abruzzi the same way, regardless the stats on the ship.

I also enjoy d'Aosta.  That doesn't necessarily make it /good/.  I also think that it's balanced; I just don't feel that the two extra barrels is enough to warrant trying to force her into T7.  WG has been over-tiering ships for a while now in an effort to grab extra money.

Agreed it's the whole reason the Graf Zeppelin is so effed up balance wise it's a tier 6 ship. Huang Meh should have been a tier 5.

I agree totally with the tier placement. It should have been at 6. But nonetheless, I would buy it tomorrow if it came out.

A better solution for Abruzzi is to reduce her ROF slightly, or dispersion and put her in T6.  With d'Aosta, you have DPM, Abruzzi a bit more alpha.

it has been brought up before though, would WG drop two premium ships at the same tier? (Even though I would have no issue with this)

Nope.  The odds are not good.

Well, if Hood, Nelson and Duke of York are anything to go on... it's entirely plausible!

 

WG don't seem to re-tier premiums after first trying them, at least recently so I'd not count on it.

I wish that WG would drop Hung Lo to tier 5 where she belongs. I might actually play her then.

I've heard rumors about those. How does one acquire them?  :cap_wander:
