Okay got my OK today. One game in random and I agree with what I have read others say. It is a coop ship under current build. The MB reload alone is what determines that. I'm glad I have her though for historical purposes.

and it will be good for a snowflake...

and if it had some speed, it could be a good ramming ship...

Got mine last night and am playing it like the Kansas.  Stay at range (got the MB range booster) and aim for BBs and cruisers.  I don't really bother with DDs. Played one match last night and came in fourth in a win.  They should buff the reload  - no need for it to be 40 sec.  Should be 30 like most American BBs. I heard it should be a secondary build but I don't agree.  Prefer to use other skills/builds than that. But I do like the historical factor.  Hoping for a Nevada or Pennsylvania at some point.

Texas is better IMHO. At least they could have made her an equal. Four seconds off the reload and identical dispersion and sigma would go a long way. Asking too much i guess. I agree with the OP's assessment. Co-op only. ''Free'' Premium ships...

Spot on! The direction WGing is taking the new US BBs (slow everything) is horrible for gameplay and just isn’t fun, in my opinion. 

Not sure what they were thinking...

I'll have the Texas push this thing into combat . Lol. It's way too slow and it's RL is so anemic for T5.

WG you so silly.

I don't believe the Okie is viable even as a coop ship!  I would play my Texas instead.

Forget that.  Strip the wall of skill off of several fast movers and have them tow her around!

Exactly.  Absolutely no reason to play Oklahoma over New York or Texas.

Some are recommending secondary build for Oklahoma as the only one being really viable/fun.

I'd say there's room for even more enjoyment.  Get the California in as a third in this rotation!  
I think I'll actually give that a go once I get the Oklahoma in my fleet.

Lol too funny .....but true.

I actually have over a million xp earned on the Colorado. I can play slow BBs with ease. You can spank alot of ships in them.  But the O.K. just feels so ........ Dare I say it ... mediocre. Don't get me wrong her secondary bats are nice at T5. Her gums pack a punch too.

Again WG,  Y U do dis?.

On a serious note.  I don't play randoms but I find the Okiehoma acceptable in coop.  The speed is a real drag.  She isn't a super "reach" for but I will take her out periodically.

LOL - not really.  Got both for free and just wanted to try them.  Unless they get their reload buffed, probably end up port queens. I prefer the other USA BBs like the Iowa and Montana.  I also have the other premium USA BBs because I'm a student of WWII and love the history behind these ships.

The Oklahoma, being a ship that everyone can get, cannot be made too good, else no one will play anything else.  This is the hallmark of any free ship (Krispy Kreme, anyone?)  Making the reload 34 seconds and her speed sub-20 kts is enough to ensure she's too weak to destroy game balance.

So I have her, I played her. It's a lot of work just to get a bad score.  I will put that 6-pt captain into my NY.

What I don't get is why they didn't give Oklahoma the same shells as the Texas/New York as they are the same guns. The difference in penetration is so absurd despite ballistics being the exact same.
