They have the VICTORIOUS OKTYABRSKAYA REVOLUTSIYA for sale and The Arizona as well. I'm a little strapped for so cash if I had to get only one which would it be?

I have both and if I had to choose, I would take the Arizona. It isn't that the October Revolution is bad, the AZ is more useful to me because I have the USN battleship line to tier 9.

Arizona, easy.  She is a go-to when I need a good game.  She is tough, even when facing tier 8 ships.  One of my favorites.  And...she is the Arizona.  I play her with the Pearl Harbor flag every December 7.

Another vote for AZ assuming you already have played tier 6.

AZ is more reliable, OR is more unique.

Personally, I have fun with OR, but not with New Mexico (closest facsimile for me) simply because OR can see T4. Rare, but MM has a soft spot for me in the ship.

Well, AZ has strengthened armour at 25mm, so you can't be overmatched by 356mm, has very good accuracy at almost all it's ranges and good torpedo protection I think. In addition, though this is a very slight possibility, if Ranked takes place in tier VI (It did a few seasons ago), it's a very capable ship.

Even if it didn't have all those traits, just for the history would be worth it.

Also, check LWMs reviews of both ships, that might help you

I have both. AZ would be my choice. Just expect the same molasses in a cold day speed as before.

The fact many of us our protesting Ranked Tier X and there has been a lot of favorable chat about tier 6 I would say odd are favorable for seeing another tier 6 Ranked.

I actually like the OR. Sure, there are definitely better tier 5 BBS out there but I just enjoy playing the ship.

Neither, save your money for something better. 

AZ is popular, and she is a 'good bote' but slow and not fun to play, sailing bathtubs isn't fun,

OR is just kinda crap.

Was a fan of the AZ when it first came out, but now that Bayern/QE can overmatch its bow along with IFHE making its 25 mm deck, upper hull, bow and stern easy mode for cruisers its just not that tanky anymore.  Guns are fine but its really easy to die if you end up just slightly out of position since everything is faster and some Russian DDs are literally twice as fast.  Can't speak to the OR, but I would rate AZ as the worst US BB premium since TX can see tier 4 and the others are vastly superior ships.  If you must have a US BB and can't take advantage of the Amazon prime offer for a free Texas than its not a terrible ship its just not great.

I am sorry but id do not understand the question unless your love for BBs is some sort of passion i cannot understand.

Your choice is either a slow moving old boat with a heart( the Arizona)

or

A slow moving trop target that cannot defned it self in Training rooms let alone battles( The OCT REV)

 

save your cash on these two, or check with Little White Mouse
