Nice Thunderer game - my best by far.  Everyone kept giving me so nice broadsides I never switched to HE...

Nice work.

So many people forget how powerful the 457mm AP is on Thunderer (since the HE is so good), which is a shame.

I deleted a Monty with 2 AP salvos in a ranked game some days ago. Full health to dead in about 20 seconds.

I stopped playing Thunderer after this. One of my few victories in Ranked in it. Can't win in Thunderer no matter how well I play. I win very reliably in Shim by contrast, simply by playing well.

Thunderer isn't very good for Ranked IMHO. It has poor secondaries and crappy armor. The crappy armor means that you can't push and tank in it. It means at the end of the match, when ships are often close to each other, Thunderer is at a disadvantage because it has no armor, and you have to hope the reds have no idea what they are doing. IMHO you're better off in almost any other T10 BB, especially the Russian cheatbote, with its comically broken armor.

Thunderer was made by WG without to think. The conqueror had hard to hit citadels. Then they changed but gave super super heal to the conq.

Or thunderer had to have the same heal or the old lowered citadel. Not this atrocity.

And if you have to push, you only have 4 guns to fight without give broadside.

This was poor design from WG.

Did you see the Thunder gameplay of over 530K+ damage?  It is on Panzer's youtube

The Thunderer can do well in ranked, but you need other people to tank damage for you. You are right that if you find yourself against 2-3 ships towards the end, you won't last long unless they are on very low health.

On a side note, because people think you fire nothing but HE, you can catch people giving you broadside and delete them fast with AP.
