Why does the West Virginia 41 have fewer hit points than the USS Arizona? The Colorados were bigger ships and displaced more than the Pennsylvania class. So why then do they have 7k LESS HIT POINTS? The Colorado class was superior in EVERY way to the Pennsylvania class.....why are you gimping her?

The CCs are currently saying the guns are very strong. OP almost. Guess a balance decision. Maybe theyll even it out. 

It's so ironic, given that the complaint about the WeeVee '44 was that it couldnt be balanced at T7.

Yea something tells me if the West Virginia was loaned to the Soviet Union during the wat it would have 70k hit points and the 44 refit at tier 6.

Yeah, something like that... Were there any ships loaned to Russia?  Hows the Murmansk in thus game?

Im guessing Boise being loaned to Argentina or whoever, is the only reason it got that nice heal.  Usn ships arent allowed any fun tricks n toys...

Tell that to the Missouri, the Kidd, the Worcester, or the AP bombing higher tier USN CVs.

In addition to this and fixing the Yamato's armor scheme, is there anything else WG can do for you today?

Again, all high tier crap....and its nothing other nations dont have in abundance through the tiers, cept for AP bombs...until the CV rework where, go figure, the US will no longer have ap bombs, that will be the ijn thing.

Plus whats more, MO is no longer for sale, the Kidd is a prem and isnt it only Lex n Graf that had AP bombs?  Or Saipan.....it wasnt all the CVs..

Whats Worcester have?  Fast firing guns, dfaa, hydro and Radar?  Thats nothing out of the ordinary around that tier..

Imo, they are overvaluing the guns compared to all of WV41's other (mostly subpar) characteristics.

Kinda how in Planetside 2 you put 200 dmg on the NC Gauss SAw lmg n everyone goes googly eyed, despite it not being a super good weapon.  Its not crap, it does good dmg n hits hard at range, but has a heap of weaknesses.  I got my auraxiam for it but once I switched to the much better overall EM6 lmg, the SAW never got touched again.

Thats basically the WV now, its got big guns, which people are going cuckoo for cocopuffs over, but you could get another ship that would be more fun and less frustrating to play, that has more options and better overall characteristics.  PEF sounds like one such ship, or Warspite, or Mutsu.  I guess none of those are US, but even Arizona is honestly better, outside the slower turrets n longer reload.

As for the hitpoint lvls, yeah, its one of those well break our own balancing rules to negatively affect the ship.  Mutsu gets 16" guns, more speed and torps but gets the highest amount of hitpoints, which im sure is a lighter ship then WV, its odd since I thought this game did hp based on tonnage....

Who are you, exactly, to determine what is and isn't correct for the game? Are you somehow more special than the dev and the base as a whole?

Lex, Essex, Midway, Enterprise also have AP Bombs.

Wooster has DEFAA, heal, hydro, and radar all at the same time. Stupid good concealment and god AA. AND 12 very rapid firing guns that have HE and AP. Yes, those traits are common at T10, but Wooster is the only one that has all of them on one ship.
