Why is it DOA? Many will want her just due to historical significance. Better turret layout than TX, as well.

Debatable. I'd take ten guns in ABXY over ABQXY configuration any day. 

Also, the devblog text seems to have copied over as a horrific white-on-white. Any chance of doing something about that? Put it in a quotes box or something?

I know a LOT of people dislike the American standards and see them as a cross to be borne, and that's fine, but I actually quite liked my time in Tiers 5 to 7. If this is the participation prize for when the American BB line split happens, SIGN ME UP.

Well, the range is already nothing special, and 'accurate secondaries for Tier' is a bit like 'good secondaries for a destroyer,' like how they sold Orkan.

I agree.  Besides the history, there is nothing there that makes me want to go out and buy one.  Especially if I already have a Texas.

See I was hoping they wouldn't do this. 

The Pearl Refits are what people want....WG'ing screws this up time and time and time again. 

Shoulda just had a pimped out Nevada at Tier 6 with all the toys...and been done with it.

How can a ship just announced like 2 hours ago already be DOA? I hope this won't turn into another whine fest like California did. :Smile_facepalm:

I’m honestly wondering if they’re not saving up for a third US BB split wayyy down the line. 
 

They did Oklahoma and California, but not the class namesakes yet. They still have the Nevada, Tennessee, and South Dakota out there, class leaders that WG has avoided creating thus far. 
 

But I agree. It’s crazy they haven’t done any refits other than Cali yet. Nevada 44 or WeeVee 44 would be much more desireable than the upcoming split, but it seems they like their “what if” brainchildren more and more.

Yeah I don’t really know what they’re going for here. 
 

You can’t build into ManSecs that well as it’s Tier V and would only get the bull crap 15% buff, but they may have something if they have inherent accuracy AND buff the range and reload. 
 

The AND is critical. They’ve made changes this direction when they were developing Mass, so it could happen, but they seem more and more hesitant to do secondary builds for US BBs since Georgia and Ohio hit the streets (ex: Cali, Florida, US BB split)

Surely you know better by now, @AdmiralThunder.  Despite all the noise about 'OP ships', if a ship *isn't* somewhat OP out of the box, here they come yelling that it's crap and no one will ever buy it.

Okay then, explain why you think it's any good.  WG's made some very questionable decisions imo with regards to Oklahoma's stats.

I agree. I don't see much point to focusing on a secondary build at Tier V for a standard-type battleship unless the accuracy is meaningfully useful without the MFCSA skill and the range is at least 7 km.

live in Oklahoma.

I once wrote a short ‘report’ on Oklahoma I posted on my toolbox at work, for anyone who cared to read it.

WG won’t be able to take my money fast enough if it actually gets released.

If it’s some prize for the US BB split directives? You can be damn sure I’ll be laser focused on making sure I finish those.

Meh, 10 guns is 10 guns, and 10k AP shell damage is nothing to sneeze at either.

Have like no desire to play T5 anything, so probably a pass at this point, but it could be fun.

I didn't mind the grind up the US BB Line.  WGs insistence in keeping them at historical speeds still confuses me given all the paper ships and 'non' historical speed/stats they've given other ships.   But, it is what it is.

The only thing which bothers me now about playing Tier 4-6 BBs are CVs.  Even my Texas, which was sold as a strong AA platform isn't any better than New York since all the post CV rework garbage.

But, I knew some men on Oklahoma when she sank,,, so I'll get her just for that alone.
