I love WG's marketing dept.

"Eight rapid-firing 356 mm main battery guns."

Reload time = 30 seconds

A new definition of rapid firing?

ISE?  As we still wait for Congress, Constellation and Napoli! 

Saw someone in a Congress the other day, on live server. Probably testing. And IIRC it was under the cruiser tag. Wasn't it a battleship?

That's not sounding too good for battleships if they think 30s is "rapid-firing"....

Obi-Wan says it best:

I have a bad feeling about this tropes c 3po GIF - Find on GIFER

That aside, I AM happy to see Ise come to WoWs and honestly, at 6,800 doubloons....yeah, I think that's pretty good! I'll get her laters!

Congress is the Tier VIII copy of Alaska with 7 or 8 (I don't recall) guns instead of Alaska's 9 guns.  It will completely break Tier VIII cruiser balance.  It is utterly stupid.

As much as people have asked for this ship, I just don't see this being a great idea.  So many BB's are sitting around uselessly as it is. We certainly don't need them NOT shooting stuff,  so they can play with planes.

Should make the thing a battlecruiser and tier it appropriately in the BB line, or make a new ship type and move the BC's that already exist into it when they add the WWI battlecruiser types. 

The greatest advantage of Alaska, PR, and Kronstadt are that they force a same tier cruiser of lesser strength into the enemy team MM if no matching ship is queued.

Oklahoma and Kansas say, "Hello".
38 second reload of main gun, if I recall correctly.

Six seconds of re-loading followed by 30 seconds of sipping tea, eh?  :cap_tea:

What Nelson are you using that has a 36 second reload?  Mine is 30 seconds.
