Thx you WG

I got the Hood in a crate and it was in my opinion not a very competint ship. Would of never bought her.

 

Now she is Amazing. Better shots better penetration she feel now like a better Kongo. 

But wait there's more, the 8.0 fix made her a good ship but the AA rework made her a great ship. Maybe even the best Tier 7 AA ship.

She has her weakness in mid range AA but the long range AA can put up as much flak at a tier x cruiser and with DFAA and fully spec she can hold her own against tier 8 cv.

So if you haven't played your Hood, this is the time to do so. The Hood is a blast to play now!

Agreed..  The AA suite is definitely nice.   I'm still sitting on the fence about the guns.   I need a few more rounds in it.  I did note some improvements against BBs last night but am expecting some drop against lightly armored vessels?  I'm going to reserve judgement until I get to try it a bit more?

Hood was always a blast to play; but then I’ve always liked ships others seem to think are bad.

BB pentraion is still a little wonky, but the grouping have been improved a lot and the penetration is in that sweet spot where I am consistently getting more citadels  on cruisers.  

Gun are improved the AA is just fun with +speed if you can hold the aircraft  in that long range AA sweet spot it's devastating.

Now that it's considered good, does it mean that you will start to play poorly with Hood and dislike it? :Smile-_tongue:

The Hood is Actually a lot better ship. I wanted to like it since I first got it and the play was so bad that I ended up selling it, then I got it back in a Christmas crate. 

So last night I played it for the first time in a while, 19 point captain in it and the update has made this ship great. It is now like playing my Vanguard at tier 7.  I managed to sink a Nagato, and not 1 but 2 Musashi's in the same round! 

Great ship for tier 7 now!

Who knows; but Vanguard also seems to get panned; Warspite driver jumped in cold turkey into Randoms with it and had a 109k win.

Instant good first impression.

Hood was similar. Good first game, and I’ve always liked it.
