Usually I see torps do that to Iowas...and Geo is just a fat Iowa hull. Shell must've hit a magazine or something.

Don't be surprised, Snargle. I once slam-dunked a Georgia from 16-ish kilometers in a Bismarck. Double citadel, 36k damage. If it was anything bigger, he would have vaporized on the spot. The thing with the Georgia is that it has the same 19mm citadel roof as all the other high-tier USN battleships, and that 19mm plating is also located around the barbettes as well, making it the most pronounced weakness of these ships. 

I'd just chalk it up to bad luck, though. I've been seeing a lot of Georgias detonating lately, and the consensus seems to be the same across the board.

:SerB:

I have one too thought it was going to be a tier 9 Massachusetts with bigger guns .  I quickly found out it wasn't and with only 6 guns and my bad aim I put her away until I can improve my game .

I'm a bit disappointed in it thus far. I may have to respec a commander and use it in a different way. It's not as good of a brawler as the Massachusetts.

Think I’m just using my Massachusetts captain in it, who’s actually my New Mexico captain, who’s a secondary build without MFC, (which I don’t trust or use anyway; it’s locked up and not fired at all too many times.)

Yea I know you love Massachusetts  @Snargfargleand were probable thinking the same things as me . I literally played like 12 games in her and put her away I don't have the skill set for her yet .

I was disappointed in her but I think she's an awesome ship . The problem is not the ship it was my expectations of the ship in the right hands the Georgia is deadly . I just have to get better to play her .

I seem to be getting an average of two kills per match but I am still losing a lot. Of course, this may be 1. the weekend and 2. tier IX vs VIII play. The Massy rocks when it's high tier with secondaries but they don't pack as much of a punch in high tier battles.

I have MFCS, and I use the secondary upgrade mod, but that's it.

I have a max range of 20km, with a 24-second reload. The guns are very reliable at that range.

The secondaries work well against DDs, but that's about all I want them for.

I'm doing 50% in it thus far so it's not all that bad. I'm dodging torps pretty good in it with the module that allows you to see them farther way. In fact, with that speed boost I can even outrun some torps. I think what detracts from its brawling is that it is essentially missing three guns. 18 inch guns are better than 16 inch guns but not so much that you can lose three and still come out on top. It seems to do well versus planes.

I still have mine in a secondary configuration (I forgot to respec all my secondary BBs when they gave us the free respec). But maybe try her out in more of a main battery/survive build. She has one my highest MB accuracy percentages across all my BBs (w 100+ game sample size). Her armor and HP are the major weaknesses.

Though luck but keep at it. She's a fine and fun ship.

I agree. The accuracy of Georgia's guns is a shame to waste brawling, and at range, it means you'll get as many or more hits than with Mass.

TBH, biggest thing I like about Georgia is the ridiculous heal cooldown.

its a power flanker like the borgape,  you abuse your speed out wide and stay within secondary ranges for maximum dpm but dont forget to angle georgia is quite fragile, the worst thing you can do is be one of those that thinks it can nose tank.

I have the Georgia. It's a fun boat. I absolutely hate detonations though. No fun losing your ship to an invisible die roll just because your ships health was 75% or less.

I really like this upgrade

image.png.c1206e35dfea2fdfc806467c126cdfe1.png

However, I replaced it with this one

image.png.105eb8c1edf2bdf6beaf07562b75ad9a.png

I seemed to have done better with it but only time will tell.

Which upgrades do you Georgia owners use?

That's Slot 6 right?

I use MBM3. 20km range is enough for me.

I may try APRM2 at some point, but the guns seem to work well as is.
