I don't know if it was worth the grind (on second thought it wasn't), but I finally got past the cupcake shooting Kansas and obtained the Minnesota.  I noticed the difference in her guns right away.....they hit hard, all twelve of them.  Dispersion is still bad, but still worthy of the 40 second reloads as 30 second reloads would be OP.  I am now enjoying grinding to the Vermont via ranked battles.....I highly recommend FXPing past that Kansas and her cupcake shooting guns.  

Now if WG would only buff the cupcake shooting guns of the Kansas AND the Constellation......

Cupcake shooting?ill agree the Kansas suffers from really bad accuracy, and Constellation from its bad angles, but the guns hit like trucks.

Constellations speed is love.

Not a fan of the entire line.  Guns get better but that is more than outweighed by the increase in map size.

I will give him this - getting Minnesota was very definitely a step up; the gunnery felt so much better (it helped that you gain access to APR Mod 2 at that point). That being said, when I made my step up, it was before KS had received a couple of sigma buffs.

Both use the same 16"/45 guns.  The Minnesota's shells are slightly heavier, though.

The Minnesota uses the same shells that are used on the Iowa (except for the "mod 1" designation.  whatever that entails, WG never says).  The Kansas uses the same shell as the T7 Colorado.....big difference.

AP shell weights of various American BBs, according to the wiki:

Kansas: 920kg

Colorado: 1016kg

Minnesota: 1100kg

North Carolina and Iowa: 1225kg

Kansas has lighter shells than the Colorado.......well, that explains why the Kansas shoots cupcakes

Yeah, Minnesota is DEFINITELY better than Kansas. You have 1.8 sigma, which is a bit better, you CAN potentially drop your reload to 35.2s IF you take Main Bat Mod 3 (although a lot of people will take the Dispersion mod for obvious reasons), her armor is better, and for me, she looks better XD

Oh, and her AP shells aren't as gimped as Kansas. At least Minnesota gets the Colorado shells. Kansas has damage values closer to 15in guns....

Just stop, the line does not get any better. I went up to the Vermont and it is now rusting in port and will hopefully sink one day.

I do good with her in ranked.  Her guns will punish.....

Minnesota only struggles when confronting DDs, but that is how the game is designed.

That line was designed with deadeye talent in mind. Deadeye got removed but WG never buffed the line to compensate for it.
