It may be because these two are the oldest T9BBs and the game was different back then

However now they are literally the only T9BBs that have to grind through two hulls, while FdG, Lion, and Alasce only have to grind through one single B-hull

Perhaps it may be time to remove those third hulls so that grind isn't as dragged out.

Alternatively, you could always add a third hull to all these others which would also balance the grind.

Have no fear; when cashflow is an issue, the stock A hulls will be removed and made into Tier 8 premiums. :Smile_trollface: Of this you can be sure! :Smile_trollface:

YOu know they are there as gate keepers... so if they were to do what you ask, they would have to adjust the credit grind requirements for those two ships, or for all BB lines.

YOu know how well that would go over, right?

Replace third hull of Iowa with Iowa 1991. That'll finally get me to play something above Tier 7.

I think that might cause even more problems...

Although Izumo seems to have plenty of room for a VLS so maybe it's not such a bad idea.

It is weird to have a B and C hull on only two BB in the tier but IIRC the end total of XP is roughly the same across the board. My problem is that the B hulls were lackluster compared to the C hulls so I skipped both of them. Removing the B hull and moving the C hull down would have made the grind a bit more comfortable.

I'd tell you what I really think about this general topic but...

  • T9 Iowa B+C Hulls cost 105,000 XP
  • T9 Alsace B Hull costs 64,000 XP
  • I think you have a point.

Alsace's propulsion and range upgrades cost more than Iowa's, but the total cost to reach a fully upgraded Alsace is 31,000 less than it is to reach a fully upgraded Iowa and the total needed to unlock Republique is 18,000 less than the total needed to unlock Montana.  Izumo's exact costs are arranged slightly differently than Iowa's, but the cost to fully upgrade is the same and the cost to unlock Yamato is the same as the cost to unlock Montana.

This does not seem fair for the US and Japanese lines.

I have great news, stock Izumo is already a tier 8 premium with Preferential matchmaking. :fish_aqua:

Those huge aft hangars make a lot of space for a lot of things. I can imagine an alternative reality where much of that space forms the basis for a Yamato-class Talos missile conversion after WW2, replacing the aft 18 inch turret with the illuminators replacing the aft secondary.

They also make a great space for enemy battleship shells to get a one-way ticket to your aft citadel. As if not being able to fire behind yourself in the Izumo wasn't bad enough already.

That hardly seems balanced. If anything her gun soft stats would have to be nerfed to compensate for the improved mobility, hp pool, and higher velocity guns.
