So I just got the Nelson about a week ago and have been playing in between grinding my Kitkaze and Ognevoi. 

 

and man this ship is fun!:fish_cute_2: been averaging around 80k dmg per match!

 

anyways, I was wondering though. Will we be getting Nelson's sister ship Rodney?:fish_aqua: I'd love to have 2 of these ships!

 

until next time,

 

I'll C'ya on the Seas!:cap_look:

Don't make yourself the main target to anything that can overmatch your 25mm all round hull especially if they are very close, unless you absolutely have to. Thankful all its main batts are at the front so no reason to go flat out out broadside(unless you're turning around to retreat from your failed push on that side of the map, if that's the case time the turn to not get cit'd or at least keep it to a minimal).

Use HE on anything except broadside cruisers and close range broadside BB.

If Rodey comes out maybe out with the superheal for normal heal and another consumable.

Literally the only weaknesses of Nelson are aircraft and positioning. And the aircraft are about to be a whole lot more manageable.

 

New CV play is DoT focused, which means Nelson (despite poor AA) will be fine. The current issue is torpedo or some AP bomb alpha damage that it can't heal, but that seems unlikely to stay. By way of positioning, fidle around to find that magic angle where people don't shoot your thin nose, you can bounce shells on the belt, and you can fire all guns. Get in a corridor (as explained in ye olde Yuro Dunkerque vid) and blaze away. If possible get behind a low island that will act as a torp shield without hindering gunfire.

Go colonize those poor fools in the name of the Queen!

I think you mean Yamashiro? Ise was part of the Hyuga (think i spelled it right?)class. which was an improved version of the fuso with better engines.:fish_book:

She's close enough to Fuso and Yamashiro that she might as well be one. Only main differences are the 3rd turret and superstructure.

Similar, but it is still incorrect to refer to Ise as a Fuso class. We should not be trying to merge classes together imho. Or should we start referring to South Dakota as a North Carolina class due to their similarity? :Smile-_tongue:

Well... first of all you spelt Scotsman wrong. Secondly I hope you are aware that the Scottish are also British. The term encompasses all the natives population of the British Isles.

1. yeah I goofed.....:fish_palm:

 

2. no, never!

 

3:  the Scots actually hate this movie with a passion. they've even defaced a statue depicting mel gibson at least 30 times. its now in a cage to prevent further damage!:Smile_veryhappy:

 

4a. I misspelled my own name, do you honestly expect me to be good at spelling?:Smile_unsure:

4b. technically Scots Celt in them and British have more Gallic. 

4c. here's some life advice. calling a Scott a Brit is like going into Harlem and screaming the N word. you just don't do it!:fish_panic: or worse! giving a outlandishly dumb answer on family feud!

In fairness that statue was [edited]hideous, and tacky as all hell. :Smile_teethhappy:

But yea, something about Rodney. I'd support it so long as it comes with her Azur Lane character.:cat_cool:

One easy way we could get Rodney is if WG does something similar like they did with World of Tanks.

When the time comes to add a 2nd UK BB Line (Battlecruisers would be another separate line completely), Nelson would be converted to the Tier 7ship of that line and the existing premium ship named Nelson would be replaced by Rodney. In turn, for those of us who already have Nelson, we would get a free replacement in the form of Rodney instead.

Anyway, that's just my idea of how that would work out.

  I broke down a week or so ago and bought mine.   So far, I like it a lot more than I thought I would- and it's my overall favorite RN battleship.

 The AP just wrecks things.   NOT having to show broadside to bring all guns to bear is a big plus- especially since that massive front citadel is so easy to pen when it does.   Imo, it plays more like a "normal" battleship, and less like a WoWS RN BB.
