Thanks WG for taking one of the most fun to play competitive non premium BB and nerfing it into mediocrity. The one T4 tech tree ship that could handle Cesares and otherT5 premiums and you felt you had to ruin it??? Meanwhile OP premiums keep running around giving seal clubbers free reign, never worrying that their OP, not available to the average player ships will ever get degraded. My numbers with Orion have gone from very good to pretty crappy. Bad bad move WG.

Played her yesterday and to be honest I didn't notice any difference, she still a strong borderline OP ship.

I haven't played the Orion since I started from the Iron Duke, but should you compare the ship to T5 or it's same tier peers?

... Wait. A T4 ship is... Balanced... If it can handle T5, and as you said,

Obvious troll is obvious.

I play Orion, and after the nerf. I couldn't get a good AP salvo in from 10km, it truly is a Nerf. Because before the nerf i could cit any ijn bbs in my effective range.

It's still pretty OP if you stick in a 19pt captain.

Fire HE, easy 100k in T4

Yup, I have a 11 point captain in her and she is still just as trolly as she was before the 'nerf'. I run her with DE and it's hilarious, not quite sure why people are using AP with THE Orion. There is just very little point. At Tier IV her HE shells will pen most armour and even citadel a great many cruisers without using IFHE.

I still like Orion although I do play it in more of a defensive role, hanging back with the CV and letting the AA guns provide cover for it against the enemy aircraft. Also running interference against as many torpedoes as I can and duking it out with any ship that gets too close. 

 

I do have to say, though, that if a tier IV is regularly outperforming a Tier V premium of the same weight class then maybe there is a power imbalance there that needs to be looked into.
