Given that Russian BB jave invanit ramge and dispite that they are "inaccurate" at long range they seem to have tighter groupings than Crusiers and they never miss.  And as an added bounces HE bounces off because of stupid high armor.

Why not just always play a Russian?

Granted I dont play BB only get fired at from them or fly over them.

No arguments please this is suppose to be discussion only.

I don't have Russian BB's in my port.  Just haven't gotten around to grinding them.  I have some cruisers and destroyers, though.

The Russian BB's sink just like other 'botes, when damaged enough.

Reasons for playing a ship vary, but they can include a variety of preferences and interests and simply to satisfy curiosity.
I'm a U.S. Citizen, plyaing on the North American server.  I've been to Japan and enjoy anime.  
I've got US and Japanese ships along with German and Russian and Italian and British ships in my port.

OP, Russian BBs offer an interesting fighting style that some players are not comfortable with.

However, each BB tech tree offers something interesting.

Having said that, you would want to be successful in the BB tech tree you are comfortable fighting in. It has to suit your fighting style.

Disregard the immature comments. I fully understand that not all players posting on this forum use English as their primary language. So misspelled words don't bother me.

And yes, your assessment is correct about some players but that is only because of a lack of awareness or a lack of good manners.

Sure , some of us make jokes here. But not everyone will like those jokes.

And forum rules are in place to ensure that OP can post an idea, question, opinion, etc without any direct disrespect.

Some players walk that line. I suggest you just keep posting your questions.

An intelligent player will provide an answer.

I'm only up to tier 8 in Russian Battleships but for me they have no personality. Sure, great medium range guns but they all seem to be the same with no differing characteristics. The French and German Battleships have different characteristics at every tier it seems. American Battleships, the premium ones at least, are also unique, which I suppose goes without saying. I had this fight in the Mighty MO yesterday:

1301352241_MightyMo1.thumb.jpg.090644ef49eba6aa66454282ca46a650.jpg

Perhaps I'm just not getting a 'feel' for the Russian BBs but I'd rather sail every other line. I do enjoy playing against them however especially when the captain is sailing broadside for whatever reason; big citadels.

I just like playing them all, you can make all the nations BBs work. I did grind the whole Russian line but don't really play my Kremlin much. As someone else said its just what fits your style is what you play and it just not my style, the only reasons I did the grind was: if we needed it in Clan battles, (Which this ship is perfectly suit to that mode) and its a finishing line of sorts. I got to finish what I started that's just me.

 

Like right now I am grinding through the Heavy UK cruisers, its frustrating but I started it now I'm going to finish it. Even if so far they aren't that fun, but in some ways the challenge of making them work is the fun.

     Russian battleships are good for killing CV's at range, and to that extent they are truly beautiful. :Smile_teethhappy:

Because Soviet BBs don't have "tighter groupings than crusiers",  and compared to the Kreml the Yamato still has all around superior gunnery (32mm overmatch with greater alpha, reload, range and accuracy at most relevant combat ranges).

Warspite seems like it can turn inside a closet. Scharnhorst looks cool.  Massachusetts is crazy fun.  And of course I'm going to play my Musashi.

well not sure but I have 311 ships and play them all (which spreads things a little thin at times) but I can't say one line is so superior to another, 

other than Russian ships are less likely to get nerfed or "readjusted "  with negative effects than other nationalities.

some people are less able to adjust their play style to fit individual ships or in game national traits. Those people should find what works for them and stick with it.  

but any ship should be played at least 25 times before you chuck it. And I compare MY stats with how I did with them to my other ships of same type and tr. 

as for a Russian Bias in wow, LOL that has been a much discussed topic... ships never built are harder to firmly evaluate, lot of wiggle room.

Not that facts ever got in the way of a buff or nerf by WG, 

In general I find ships are most true to life when they first are introduced. before they are buffed into blandness.

Because you'd get bored really quickly. The VMF BBs are mostly kinda soulless to play, they have high sides and whale-y handling, so it enforces a certain playstyle on you whether you like it or not. Yes, Sinop and Kreml are more resistant to being punished if you have to turn out, but I have been punished in them (and punished them), so they're not invulnerable. The short range also makes you position a certain way every match, and even Kreml's range is barely adequate in modern T10 games.

For me at least, they might be the most boring BB line I've gone through so far.

I am now on the T6 Russian BB, gonna own the T7 one in a few days. For me, Russian BBs are quite powerful in mid to short range and are nice cruiser hunters. You need to take advantage of the terrain to get close to enemies and fire at them. Within 15 kilometers, it's your slaughter time, but beware of your citadel, too.

I hadn't heard it put that way, but so far (and I'm not high up yet) that seems to be pretty much true.  Compared to French BBs, they have no soul. I don't even like RN BBs, but they do have some personality.  RU BBs feel more like .. automatons.

This.  I got the T5 when the line came out.  Never even thought about getting the T6.

I might play it to get some potential damage if a mission for that is on, but it is boring.

That would be miserable for me, I played Sinop to rank out in the epicenter sprint season, and I can't stand to touch Sinop now.

Kreml would likely be the same thing in CB or ranked.

You got that right; at half speed Warspite can turn around in a bathtub.

I have the Kremlin and I love it but I find I do better in the German GK. I've been saved a few times by the GK's secondaries when DDs get a little too close.

Each BB is different and each BB has to be played differently.
