Nope, I'm not a BB player that gets regular burned down by one.

It's only about the stats.

wows numbers shows 51k matches with the Worcester recorded. Besides the Salem (which we can ignore because of the low battle count) she out matches any other T10 cruiser.

While the numbers will go down after the last potato hit the ship it's... disturbing.

My battle count is with 49 still to low I can easy add up 90k damage. Yes my average is 86k, but sometimes you have just bad luck. And everything below 90k-100k is dissapointing.

Most of the time I see a Sauce in a team, he ends up in the top 3. It seems that the impact of this ship is quite high.

Usually WG swings the nerf bat at overperforming ships.

you do realize people that already have wooster at this stage are either really involved in this game(thus willing to spend $ to skip previous ships) or has a lot of resources to spare(from previous CW participation) or really experienced thus climb up super fast

those populations probably has skill level above server average

"Nerf the Sauce".

Love it. It's like WoWs version of "The Juice is Loose.".


Na, I'm not calling for it. I have far too much fun with her.

Sure, that's why I said the WR will go down after the ultimate potatos get her. Still: there are enough of them that whale their way to T10 by exchanging XP to freeXP.

Honestly does it need to be nerfed?  I mean its just an Atlanta on crack.  If you really look at it even the way it is now the Worcester can be easily dealt with by via 2 or 3 citadel hits.  Their armor from what I understand isn't that great either.  So in reality does it really need the nerf?  Probably not.

Well I do hope more potatoes gain access to the Helena and bring its stats down. I shudder when I think of the possibility that it may be nerfed. Come on potatoes, keep playing the Helena and bring those numbers down!

They released it with its own built in nerf, called BB AP shells.   

When enemy BBs can aim the 'sauce' must hide behind an island.   If the enemy team then positions such that the island chosen is a non-factor to the flow of the battle, the 'sauce' gets to chose between living and sitting while watching their team lose, or coming out and vaporizing.

The only problem is the average IQ of the random teams seems to be too low to have picked this up yet, but as it dawns on them it will be like the minotaur smoke.  Torp it, sail away from it, and don't broadside it.

The Alsace is about to be adjusted, and it's, what, 4-5 months since release?  I think that's your timeline for USN CL changes apart from issues that are really obvious, like the mistaken range on Seattle at first appearance.

The numbers will drop some as time goes on but not by enough to remove it from the overpowered list.

Do you think they will nerf Helena? That's the ship I am most concerned about.

It out performs every other ship.   Sure Mostly being played by better players, but their is enough garbage that saved up free xp to get it too. stats will go down slowly as more trash floats to the top. but look at even Hindenberg got a nerf and it wasn't even the top performing ship lol.

I consider it to be very good for its tier but nowhere near overpowered. It's still extremely fragile, requires a dedicated playstyle not everyone can master, engine gets knocked out easily, and 8.5 second reload isn't exactly impressive.

And I think they're doing too much too soon on that; referring to the incoming Alsace nerf.

They will nerf Worcestershire when it's completed the purpose it was added to the game to fulfill.

It'll be nerfed.

I think so too, its a matter of how long before it does.  I think it will be a slight ROF nerf just in time for the release the all paper BB line...
