Thank you for having the integrity to call WG out on their shenanigans.

Enjoy your break, you earn it every time you do one of these.

I was curious about this ship as i really love playing Arizona. 

I love playing Arizona but i won't pay to have it at tier 7.

This doesn't look like a good ship at all.

Thanks for the review Mouse.

All they had to do was drop the reload down to sub 30 seconds and I think more people would be interested in her. Why she has such high reload on such small guns at tier 7 when the similarly armed 356mm KGV has a 25 second reload AND has the 1/4 pen British HE...Heck even if they'd given her 28 second reload it would make sense...but in all she offers so little compared to the Arizona but worse matchmaking makes her a pointless port queen of a ship.

Thank you for the preemptive warning, I mean review on this one.

This picture is the best thing I could think of to illustrate CA's introduction to WoWs.

i feel like its an insult to the playerbase that WG expects people to actually spend about 50 bucks on this garbage, truly a waste of devs time and money but isnt that par for the course with WG nowadays?

Well,  I guess that settles that.  Just saw ichase's vid also. Obsolete and irrelevant before she even hits the water.   Simply tragic.

Normally I'm not bothered by the napkinwaffe ships, hell some of my favorite ships in this game never left the blueprint stage.

But given CA's epic history, it does irritate me to see so much love lavished on their napkinwaffe RU BB and KM CV lines, while CA gets this treatment. 

In a way I'm glad there's not a ship named after my home state they can give this sort of treatment to.

WG executive 1: "Hmm, not enough suckers are buying this new ship. What to do?"

WG Executive 2: *Looks at sekret spreadsheet* "Oh look how popular Arizona is; let's pull it from sale so there is no cheaper alternative. Ez fix"

You joke but I warned the devs of this exact thing.  If they don't want people comparing her to Arizona, Arizona needs to be pulled.

They could have made California powerful.  They could make West Virginia 1944 / 1945 fit at tier VIII for crying out loud.  It's just a matter of making the ship fun and/or interesting to play.  California can give you some reasonable games.  She can contribute.  She's just not fun and you can get a similar (and better!) experience with Arizona down at tier VI.

Thanks (again) for this review.  I won't be purchasing her.  And I'm a Native CAn.

But seeing how she was being released reminded me of why I write these reviews in the first place:  To protect other players from making bad purchases.  Wargaming burned me once too often in World of Tanks.  If I can help others avoid that, I will.

Now that said, with this high-profile release covered and my feels (hopefully) clearly broadcast, I'm taking some much needed time off.

WG!!!  THIS should be your mission statement.  This is how ALL of your people should think!  You have a lot to learn from Ms. Mouse.  I for one wouldn't have spent a nickel on your game without her.  I have spent a TON!

Wow.   As a Californian and a player whose been as eager to sink my teeth into some California play as I would be a good fish taco, this review of what the ship is about is akin to finding a brown layer of over ripened avocado in that taco and being fearful it might actually be a cream of cow pie spread.   If she was still a tier 6 price I'd still take a bite without hesitation but this is just darn disappointing. And food for thought as I review my Steam summertime queue to see where best to spend my $.  

 

Thanks for the review Ms Mouse!
