You got to the Nagato in 443 battles and you claim to have survivability issues?

Sorry, I smell troll. Good luck, farewell, and don't let the door hit your backside on the way out.

Instead of raging about a ship, lets dissect your gameplay and see what went wrong.  If we look where you died, I can assume that you were pushing too aggressively in an alleyway without having a way out.  You were forced into showing their entire fleet a broadside which led to a quick death for you.  Even just looking at the picture and the way your ship is facing, I can tell you that you should die.  You have the most armor in the game in a Battleship, but that doesn't give you a "get out of jail free card".  You must effectively use that armor by angling it and presenting the most armor possible.  Judging by your potential damage, you took a few large shots, which chipped your health down fast.  If you'd like, there are a few people on the forums who will do demo review with you, myself included.

It's easy to get to a t7 in 443 battles.  Hell, it only takes me about 250 battles to get a t10 at this point.

I guess it depends on how many lines you're following. Exhaustive grinding on one line would probably do it, I must admit, but I would then ask whether you are running XP flags, camo, premium time etc., which I mostly have not.

It took me a lot longer to get to T7 in British cruisers, but probably because I picked probably the most difficult line in the game to start as a complete newbie and used very little in the way of flags or camo (and only ran premium time when I won it). If I were doing it again with foreknowledge, I might have gone with something more forgiving.

i didn't get a chance to push that far. most of the dam i received was from "Fires". the kill shot was torp bombers. it's been like this for more than 5 games in a row so far. even my tirpitz has been getting set on fire salvo after salvo. battleships aren't constructed out of balsa wood. granted, there can be fires, but not like what i have been experiencing.

BBs are not =necessarily supposed to survive.  If you can tank a LOT Of damage instead of DD/CAs getting hammered and the team wins - it does not matter if the BBs dies or not.  The game is about capping and taking enough points to win.  None of my BBs have a survivor rate above 48 or so percent.

Bbs have plenty of chance.

First, thank you for not guarding th edge of the map. You made it into the center.

Second, i agree with much of the comments of xplicit. I also extend the same offer.

Third if you would like i can give you some links to helpful videos to recognize common errors, and show examples of stellar high level play.

If you're having trouble with fires, use a survivability build, and work on your DCP usage.  There are counters to everything in WoWs.

@bogo3964

Don't listen to this advice.  It is NOT the job of a battleship to be a god damned pin cushion for damage, no matter how many fools claim otherwise.  It *IS* your job to maximize the damage you produce, while minimizing the amount of damage you take.  However, that does NOT mean that you hide wayyyyy in back and back line snipe.  That's a very bad way to maximize damage.  What you should do is find a the best range at which you can get consistent numbers of hits, while being able to work your armor and generate bounces from AP.  In a Nagato, you're probably looking at around 10-15 km.

As for fire, it's just the cost of doing business as a BB.  What you have to do is manage your consumables to minimize the amount of damage you take, and repair as much as you can.  Never put out a single fire, unless you KNOW with absolute complete certainty that you won't come under enemy fire for long enough to get your DC party back off cooldown.  It's better to let a single fire burn because you can heal it back with a Repair Party.  Also, if you put out a single fire, then you're stuck without a DC party for a minute or minute and a half.  And it you take additional fires or flooding from torps, those fires and flooding will run unchecked, and you'll be in a world of hurt.

 

Battleships can be INCREDIBLY durable, in spite of your bad experience.  But it doesn't happen all on its own.  You have to make good choices in skills and upgrade modules, and you have to make good decisions with your DC and Repair parties to get the most out a battleship's durability.

It made me laugh, so a successful troll.

But not as good as the guy complaining on an Asashio thread:

"Asashio is unfair as BB can be hit at ranges they cannot retaliate" or something similarly ironic... (though I think he was serious!)
