hmm...let's see..

slow

shotgun accuracy

lot's of guns

turns well

She has been power creeped a bit, but with a little loving she could be viable again.

I find NY to be one of the better tech tree tier 5 BBs on paper. She has the heaviest broadside with penetration that would make most T6 BBs jealous and great range. Her accuracy is questionable like the rest of the tech tree tier 5 ships. She can turn and dodge pretty well and she really isn't that much slower then the rest of the T5 ships minus the Kongo of course

Ditto, if I didn't like the New York I wouldn't own Texas.

I have the Texas and I find it a lot better to handle than New York.

Yup,  a real dog. 

Grind your way past it as quick as possible.

I'm with Stormy...did not care for it at all.  However, I'm on record as being a standard hater.  Love seeing them on the red team, though, so there's that.

I think she is a pretty average, perfectly capable of doing well. Just pay attention to your position in relation your team and enemies and you can do well.

Needs a reload buff.  But otherwise not horrible.  Earned my lone Kraken in it when I was at less than 700 games played.  Day after that I got 3 kills and 2 solo base caps.  Mediocre AA (especially compared to Texas) and it suffers if you're facing a Scharn with a good CV on the red team.

True, it's not a horrible ship to shoot at, but it is horrible when you're the one in the New York that is being shot at.

My solution was to just simply stop playing that thing.  For it's tier, she's just fine, but MM and the Power Creep in her MM Bracket has only made her more and more difficult to like as a user.

 

When it was just her and Kongo long ago, it was fine, but ever since the German BBs arrived, and newer ships, with her seeing Tier VII a lot (Scharnhorst, Gneisenau, Kaga, Saipan, Hiryu, etc), it's not pleasant at all.

Oh.  Don't forget Lyon at Tier VII.  She'll actually rack up nonstop dozen penetrations against NY / TX.

The reason I am using that ship is to grind xp to get the New Mexico. Can't wait until I get rid of it.

Good luck brother, hope you get out of there and make it to the promised land sooner.  The line gets better and better as you get higher in the tiers.  But it's a slow process.

It's a meh boat that could use a little love. It's biggest issue is being unable to bounce shells from the Kongo and up. So it can't really tank shells that well and doesn't have much to make up for it.

Some of my favorite in-game memories of mid-tier BB are using Fuso and Kongo to shoot at NY and NM...they're too slow to run, too short ranged to shoot back, too soft to survive.  Glorious.  My personal record, courtesy of a friendly DD spotting, is deleting a NY from full health in less than 2 mins.  3x salvos was all my Kongo needed and I laughed gleefully at the result.  I love hunting lone NYs...you can practically sense me thinking "Yes, yes...turn...you need those other guns...don't worry...that's right, show me your side...good night."

You do realize the NY has nearly the same range when fully upgraded and has the same amount of armor if not more than the Fuso and Kongo right? You sound like you don't know anything by the way your post comes off
