Stop nerfing the dam IOWA ship into exstinksion you have it nerfed so dam bad it would work better if I hooked it to my row boat and used it as a frinking  anker you shoot 30 rounds at standing ships and they all miss and I repeat STANDING STILL SHIPS, YOU HAVE DEGRADED IT TO NOTHING BUT A STINKING ROW BOAT WITH SPIT WADS.

Make sure you are taking the artillery plotting room modification in slot 6. It provides a sizable dispersion buff that will help you land more shells on target

Iowa is a great ship. It's fast and punchy, probably my favorite BB ATM

The last time Iowa was changed was the lowering of the citadel right? Which last I checked was a buff. So yeah...it's been what, at least a year since it was changed (except AA but that's global), and that was a buff.

And make sure you're shooting at the ship you're aiming at lol, seriously if you are not getting hits  with her it's you not the boat

I am not really enjoying mine now either.  I am still on the stock hull and may be too poor to upgrade it when that time comes.  Everything smashes it for 15k even bow in, and when im 10k i feel like i cant get it to shoot straight enough/strong enough to cit.  Others seem to love it.  OTOH, im liking my izumo with a stock hull so maybe its just a preference of mine, as others seemed to hate it.

Since I've been playing this game in May 2016 Iowa has seen:

access to APR2, which decreases dispersion by a notable margin, which is a BUFF

Had her citadel lowered, making it easier to turn out, which is a BUFF

Was given an improved heal and better rudder shift, which are BUFFS

WG has never nerfed Iowa, all that's happened to her has been buffs. All this is is someone who cannot aim blaming the ship being bad and not the real reason the ship is bad, the person captaining it

Iowa is a decent ship, but it was made obsolete with introduction of ships like Missouri, Musashi, Jean Bart, and Georgia.  Having said that, when it comes to tech tree BBs Iowa is pretty good still.

After using the Georgia a lot the Iowa (and presumably the Missouri if I owned one) now seem quite lackluster.

Sometimes I think "a Georgia with nine 16"/50 caliber guns would be cool" and then realize that's what the Iowa should be.

I'm pretty sure the Iowa got a buff to its heal after that, but I could be remembering wrong.

Well you wouldn't be wrong because Iowa does have them...  They were all fitted with the 16"/50 caliber guns....  South Dakotas and North Carolinas had the 16"/45 calibers.

I have both, and that is correct. Geo ruins MO, unless you get super hot at the thought of having a short duration radar.
