Do not buy it!

I bought it this Christmas Day in tech tree. Now I am frustrated . Because its guns are very weird.

Within 14km, it will give you over-pen, over-pen and over-pen.

Between 18-14, it can penetrate other ships but its accuracy is bad. 1/9-2/9 hit target.

I don't know why WG sell such ship in premium shop. 

You aiming accurately, nothing wrong, but 900 over-pen damage.

By the way, tier 8 ships are still always matched to tier X room now. 

I won't buy any tier 8 premium ships.

Just for you, I’m declaring today a “Roma Holiday!”  Nothing but Roma for me tonight.

Refer to LWM's ship reviews before making a purchase, saves you time, money, and the occasional gasket.

I got mine from the Santa container and I love it with the free 10 skill captain that comes with the container.

Ah but when it all comes together she is such a sweet pasta maker.

While I can sympathize, you could have earned it, or simply ignored it.

And really, your entire issue could have been avoided with a bit of reading....

This.  Here's the link.  

Also, ask around.  There are many threads talking about the wonky guns on Roma.

This just reminds me why I gladly donate to LWM’s Patreon every month. We really need her to translate vague stats and marketing hype into useful information. 

The OP isn’t wrong, but Roma is a ship that can work. You just need to learn to chase BB broadsides and cruisers that are giving you a bit of an angle. Roma has a weird learning curve that not many other ships have.

Your so right...

Don't buy it, IF you hate being able to bounce Yammy shells...

Don't buy it, IF being stealthy and ambushing ships isn't your forte.

But most of all,

Don't buy it if you like sniping, her guns will troll you.

I have NEVER bought a ship without reading LWM review AND watching at least 1 YouTube video on the ship.

Invader, the problem that the Roma faces is similar to that which the Richelieu faces.  Smallish caliber, high velocity shells.  They have TONS of penetration at shorter ranges, sometimes too much.  You have to learn that sometimes aiming at perfect broadsides on cruisers isn't always the best plan.  Against the squishiest cruisers, it can be better to aim at them when they're angled somewhat, since that will increase their effective armor, and thus improve your chances of having your shells' fuses arming to get full penetrations.  Another trick is, when at shorter ranges, aim just BELOW the waterline.  Hitting the water just short of the target ship can also help with your overpenetration problems.

Oh, thank you very much! I will try it again...
