So it took me from beta to today to finally get the Yammy. I admit I had to use a fair bit of gold/freexp to get past the Izumo turd...good lord that has got to be horrible (not Roma bad, but pretty bad.) With that said I've begun to play with the biggest boy in the yard...and when her guns connect she's pretty damn good. Here is what I learned.

CV's love you.

HE spam is still HE spam, even with a zombie/fire build

My god it feels good to smack someone with a volkswagon

Dispersion is odd...sometimes you bracket, sometimes you don't.

SPOTTER PLANE IS JESUS CHRIST!

Moves like a brick

Secondaries....eh....yeah....no.

--------------------

So with that said, I dare say I'm enjoying myself. The izumo was a bad dream, very bad indeed. I dare say I'm enjoying the yammy. Now before I boogie, can anyone give me some helpful tips on how to make full use of her? I mean the mobile fortress bow on blasting is my first choice, did that on hot spot and racked up 100k on the flankers...but what else? What skills make her work? What upgrades are essential?

She’s a good ship, but she plays a little differently. She is one of the few BBs in the game I can respect seeing at 16km out. Her guns rotate so slowly trying to close the distance is I’ll advised. That said, DO NOT BOW ON REVERSE. As you already know people like to HE spam you, A LOT. At least if you’re always moving you can maybe get away. Also be careful how you angle: if you overangle even slightly you are going to eat citadels.

For the love of christ....I have said before that tier 9 is a paywall.

Yet the Izumo was living proof of that fact.

you could previously earn it, and it would be stored with the rest of your camo if you didnt have the ship.

nope, very much a 'thing'

 

It's one thing to get Yamato, it an entire other thing to make her work.

Was the armor correctly modeled?
