Not sure if this fits better in Historical or General but I decided on posting this here since it is in the game.

I was hoping someone posted this. I saw it on YouTube a few years back.

 

That's very impressive, since Drachinifel only posted it 19 hours ago.

Over so many low tier battles in Coop I believe that I have only seen one of these and that was a couple of years ago.....

Removing OP ships from availability works.  I also rarely see Belfast, Kutuzov, or Gremyashchy.

That rarity, and the legends of how OP they are, often leads to disappointment when a player spends a lot of money on Santa crates in order to acquire one of these ships.  They may well be OP for their tier, but they are not "insta-win, just push play".  These ships still require a good player to be OP.

I think lack of Nicholai has more to do with all the CVs haunting T4 than overall rarity.  It's AA is laughable even by T4 standards.  Arkansas is even worse with literally 0 AA.

great video. Tis a shame the ship was never completed. I hate seeing drawings of ships that were almost. So many awesome ships lost to budget cuts, new war, treaties, etc.

A version of the story was on YouTube, I just can't remember who did it or if it was footage on Wikipedia. When the ship first came out, I looked up the ship and found a few links to check with my search engine.

People who have it don't play it because it's like watching paint dry. It's excruciatingly slow at everything and CVs at that tier love to double team it from the opening.

Yeah, same reason why my Arkansas start rust away in port. 

It was ok with the old CV, since you had a chance to get a two digit IQ player that deleted their planes, with the rework both are just a XP pinata.

The Imperator Nikolai's reputation was well earned. Going from memory it carried a 54% overall WR when tier 4's still saw tier 6 and it quickly climbed to 60% when they stopped seeing tier 6, it is a beast.
