I find Roma been the most relaxing battleship to play

I just dig my Roma out for those directives and French containers, played a few coop game with her.

It is so relaxing, at the point I entered the match, I know there is pretty much nothing I can do, and I am assuming my team didn't expect me to do anything.

I just need to sail around and find a nice target to ram.:Smile_teethhappy:

 

At the point I see the ship is doing more damage to an angled Musashi rather than a broadsiding Musashi, I confirmed my thoughts and kept shooting angled Musashi for nice 5K or 6K damge per salvo.

I wanted to like the Roma.  I wanted to buy the Roma.  All the reviews and videos about over pens scared me off though. :(

At the very least you know you are driving the most beautiful BB in the game. I swear that the Italians can make a tractor look beautiful, it has to be in the genes.

Well Lamborghini did start off making tractors for the Italians.   

I won the Roma in a Christmas crate and I can confirm what others have said.  In that ship I get more over penns and ricochets than I care to deal with.  I have yet to find a way to enjoy that ship.

From 3km to a closing of 500 meters, I bounced Yammy shells and killed her .....

Full health to dead....

Fell in love with her.

She is a close to mid range ship.

I find more pens on an angled battleship rather than an broadsiding one.... sometimes you shoot a broadsiding target and see the shells flys anywhere but the ship you are shooting at.

However, there are rare cases that I almost deleted a broadsiding Salem at 12Km mark, I think I got something like 4 or 3 citadels in one salvo..... but again, in most of the times, the shells go anywhere but the ship, I think usually it's gonna be 1 pen 1 overpen or something like that.

Agreed, now I just try to get as close as possible, however, I find the gun isn't really accurate at 5Km mark... maybe I should get closer. I think I scoure 1 citadel hits at at broadsiding Musashi at around 7km or 8km mark...

I love the look, bought the special camo for her, want to enjoy playing her, but then I get into a tier 10 game, out-ranged by just about everything, long range AP should be her strength, but it is not- then she goes back to being a Port Queen

Nothing beat playing CV when it comes to relaxation game play, you just chill...have the 2nd monitor watching netflix show or youtube, and WOWs on main monitor nuking things with rocket planes, torp and dive bombers with ease, as if i could almost play the game with my feet.

Roma works very well for me. I bought her when she came out just to have her.shes consistent in damage,fast for flanking and a sweetheart to look at . She needs IMO upgraded secondaries just to keep pesky DDs at bay . Just don't show her side too much cause it's an easy cit.

I don't regret buying her and I use her Everytime I have a chance .

Cheers m8. o>

I enjoy it, sure the guns troll you sometimes a lot like Musashi but usually your bottom tier so the overpen issue doesn't really crop up too much for me. One of the best looking ships ever made for sure. I only place it second to Iowa as best looking BB ever built...

In my playing against Roma in the past I did notice that a good salvo to the stern could set off devastating citadel strike(s). Pretty sure the front arc of the Roma is better protected though. And last time I obliterated a Roma was with Amagi at mid to close range, so certainly took enough shells hitting Roma that time to sink it lol.

Also brawling against Roma in Bismarck and took longer than expected to sink the Roma, and in the mean time the main battery shells were peeling uncomfortable amounts of HP off of my Bismarck. (Likely thanks to how high the pen is on Roma)

So I guess as long as you are careful about not having a powerful BB sailing behind your Roma you are good.

Ricochet Roma irritates me to no end,  it's easily the worst ship in the game.  I would LOVE to have my money back, hell I'd even  swap it for a Gascan.

No you don't, i have both and the Roma is the better of the two, Gascan suck real bad, like the worst T8 premium BB out there.

*Perfect broadsiding Colorado 11.0km out. There is no way you can miss that shot*

Roma: "Hold my Prosecco..."

That miss was actually my own fault, I didn't lead enough.

I love the Roma. I don’t mind the overpens but the dispersion is disappointing.  

‘I wish I could pay to upgrade it to Tier 9 and leave everything the same except give it good dispersion.
