Can claim from Prime Gaming/Twitch.

No snap judgement but, SAP on a BB?! First salvo, only co-op mind you, DD erased.

Maybe my early release drop luck will continue.  With the next tier up.

Strange, my feeling was the opposite, pretty good accuracy for a T4. Combined with the low concealment in my limited play experience today it seems pretty good.

BB SAP only does 10% damage to DDs. AP is actually better against DDs because it has higher alpha. The deletion had more to do with the 12 guns than the SAP.

It is closer to 14% as I got just over 1k from a standard pen on a DD with SAP which does 7850 maximum damage instead of the 810 you would get from an 8100 maximum AP shell

That's odd. I don't recall them making a separate case for SAP. It should either be 10% or 33%, unless I've forgotten something about how SAP works.

Historically, the Italian BBs that are going to be in-game (Tier 4, 5, 6, don't know about upper tiers) had 12" guns. For Tier 4 this seems adequate, but I worry will be lacking at tier 5 and 6.

I have played a couple of matches and like it. The main gun range leaves something to be desired even for the tier at 13.3, a couple more would be appreciated. The AA while quite good for the tier is also short ranged at 3 km and once again a little more would be nice, 3.5 to 4 would be perfect.

I got only one hit so it wasn't hidden in other hits.

This. If Dante is anything to go by, BB SAP is going to be marginal at best (just like the whole RM BB line...).

It looks like we have at least 6 updates of upcoming Prime gaming bundles. It is good to see the continued World of Warships Collaboration with Prime Gaming.

These of course are in addition to the regular 5 twitch containers and 4 twitch missions we can gain each update. 

As pointed out above, This month for example we gain Early access Tier 4 Italian Battleship Dante Alighieri, a port slot & 6 Pt. Commander.

A very short video with the Details:

Ok, ran a test in the training room and it is 10% but just like with AP you will sometimes do better but don't rely on it.

Just played my first match with Dante. Nice ship, I believe she's a keeper. Looked at the armor profile and she has a turtleback, which is interesting. Also, SAP devastates bow-on enemy BBs and broadside cruisers. Not lamenting the loss of HE.

After claiming the ship does it take some time before it shows up in your game?

Restart the game and she should show up.

Took her out for a little stroll in coop.. good thing she has plenty of gunzz LOL

Second kill was fighting the mirror and you really have to get the angles right to hurt her.

Thanks, tried that before posting, still no ship.  I'll give it a while then submit a support ticket if it doesn't show up.

You have the stock range.  Make sure to mount the range module.
