Howdy captains! I would like to know if this battleship is worth the grind, I mean, the final rewards are 10.000 of coal and only 1000 of steel.

The prices per stage are 1500 doubloons...wait, nope, now is 1750.

The ship is decent but, If I would like to have a tier VIII premium secondary focus battleship...Massachusetts?

And theres no intermediate rewards also.

And the ship is not an historical one, just paper (Please Wargaming we want real ships :fish_book:).

So what is the pourpouse of this ship? Theres no Pan American tech tree line neither. I wonder. Any opinion is appreciated!

Have a happy easter weekend captains! :fish_cute_2:

It is slow, no HE, takes a good while to turn, dispersion is ALL over...  and it likes to burn worse than my JB.  3 fires is almost normal for it BUT - I don't have a lot of games in it obviously.

Her gimmick is her secondary battery, which is… interesting on a tier VIII ship that can go only go 25 knots. Her 127mm secondaries have standard improved German BB dispersion, while her large 234mm (9.2”) secondaries hit like a truck and have German CC/German CV/Massachusetts dispersion. I’m not really sure what to think of her either.

MA is on the naughty list, though, so the only way to acquire her would be to grab her Black version this Black Friday (assuming she returns again). Regardless, if one wants the best secondary BB experience at tier VIII, Zieten is arguably the best of the bunch and doesn’t require any cash investment.

I don't know if I ever fired off a secondary at all.  Risk of fire is quite high as well as she gives up damage to AP pretty easily - can't imagine getting close enough to use them unless I hug the back and only move up when few are left on my team or it is a roll.  And if it is a roll - probably not going to be one of the living at the end of the game if you get noticed.

I have YET to have a single secondary go off - got as close as 9.2 km in the last game and nary any secondary action.

7.8 KM secondary firing range and I CAN' T imagine you would use it long before you were blown out of the water or burned down.   I would have to play with a the values for a full secondary build to see if it got much better.  And my captain is the 10 pointer.

Full secondary build (SBM1 + MYS signal + LRSBS skill) gives 11.3km range.

For comparison, the German battleships at this tier can get their range out to 11.5km.

Finally got a chance to try out the secondary build and eh...  Reload time makes for... long pauses and I think that teh ship moved out of range but I look and nope.  Still in range and open to be hit but guns reloading it seems.

One of my better games - 89K damage, 2 kills, and 1.7 mil damage.

 

Next game I parked myself in front of a number of ships and targeted the closest for the secondaries.  133 shells fired, only 5 hit for 600 average damage (just above actually).
