Texas is terrible. I should be able to get 7 million credits in one game with a T5 premium. I should be doing 400,000 damage a game in this ship too. And the AA sucks. I can only get 29 planes shot down in one game. I should be able to have AA that stretches out for 20 km!! This is unfair. Please buff WG 

/s if you didn't recognize already

I heard Texas was a bit hot in the summer, but not bad.

You didn't get a Kraken. You have failed us all. To the Gulag with you!

There was actually a Giulio that was at 160 health, and I got a turret pen on him (no damage). Our CV then killed him. Darn

I backed into a Clemson who thought he was oh so smart for a DH in TX once. The salt flowed, it was epic. My slow a/f BB taking out a DD by ramming.

For me it is one of my cursed ships. Have trouble getting wins. Rarely see CVs and, when present, they keep their planes outside my small AA bubble. Not saying it is a bad ship, just that I have trouble doing well in it. Could have something to do with me getting the Texas about the time WG rolled out that OP Italian BB.

Would love to have a game like the OP.

I assume this guy only read the title and not the thread.

It wouldn't be the first time someone's done that...

When given a decent MM like 4-5 or 5-6 (or a game with tier 4-6 CVs), Texas rocks. No CV can touch her, and she can still stand up pretty well against tier 6 ships, while being quite good at tier 4 and 5.

When tier 7 ships like Saipan and Nelson start popping up, all one can do is pray that the gods of overmatch and random citadels are merciful, the local enemy destroyer doesn't decide to make sure you take your daily diet in fish while laughing at your pathetic dispersion, the cruisers don't decide to make a Texan barbecue, and Kaga decides that it prefers deleting someone else like the friendly Giulio Cesare this strike wave.

It's a good ship, and I love her, but she struggles severely against tier 7 opposition.

Clemson getting steamrolled by Texas (A&M) is usually how it goes.

Yeah, I've had it a heck of a lot longer, and for me, it has this really great WR I don't want to touch and ruin, so it's a bit of a quandry: I have her in port, but I feel like I shouldn't be allowed to play her anymore.

 

For me, my cursed ship is the Budyonny. My goodness. When I don't screw up in it(rare) I get a battle where 100000% of the advantages go to the other team and my own team are nearly all window-lickers.

The dispersion on Texas feels like lasers after playing other BB for a while. The super slow speed makes it hard to do anything but push in one direction though. If you pick the wrong course it takes forever to get anywhere else.  It's so slow if you don't put yourself in a place where you can engage lots of map area you wind up doing a whole lot of nothing. On the flip side if you put yourself in a position where you can shoot more than one thing you're so easy to hit by everything and you can't get away quickly at all. 

The guns are sweet but I could probably run down the street on my elbows faster than the Texas moves at top speed.

I always hear that about US battleships. In all the games I've had maybe a couple, out of hundreds, where I've had a problem getting into range and doing damage.  And that's starting at half speed for the first 2 or so minutes.

It's a meme.  The nice thing about memes is that they require no actual first hand knowledge, just a repetition of the meme in question.  The slow speed of American battleships, about 39kph, compared to Japanese battleships is about 200m per minute.  So basically, very few people can deal with 0.2km in distance when operating a US BB.  Even though by the end of the match a "fast" Japanese BB will have traveled 3km farther, they are usually riding the map border "sniping" which makes their speed in relation to influencing the match debatable anyway.

Used to be a better ship than it is now imho due to more and better ships out there. I take it out rarely anymore but it used to be a favorite as I working thru Tier 5's on the tech tree.
