Yep. Finally.

Yeah, I know, not the best Tier x bb, power creep, bla bla bla... When I searched for "world of warships" on youtube 6 years ago, it was this ship that I wanted to play for...I'm not made for USN BBs, so she will chill in port till snowflake season...I might run her twice a year. But she is mine. Thanks for putting up with me guys.

Indeed. It’s pretty egregious in this case, though.

Congrats! It may not be the best T10 BB, but its far from one of the worst. Its very good at sending cruisers back to port and can get pretty devastating hits on other BB's once in the 12-15km range. I use mine when I need a lot of main gun hits combined with BB damage for events or missions.

Monty was my first T10 also.  Have over 1200 Coop battles in her.  She also helped get my first commander to 19 (max at the time) and to 21.

Thanks guys! :Smile_medal: She is my third Tier x bb, btw...I have ship ADD so that is how the Republic and St. V beat her into port...I just do better in other BBs for some reason...shell flight time maybe? 

Yeah, I would love an Ohio, as a native Buckeye, and for other reasons...but no way in all the Hells I'm hitting that "reset" button, lol..

Congratulations OP!  

I only picked up Montana as my 13th tier ten in September and have sent her into battle only twice since with Optimus Prime commanding her.  As a commander I've had for quite a while who was already trained for Montana per some event (can't remember which), he had quite the wait in my reserve.   I was pretty thrilled to finally get this ship as well because 'Murica!  :Smile_Default:

Congrats and may her shells always find their mark...but not on my ships!

I joined in Aug of 2016, and had zero patience to getting to the T10. In retrospect, would do it the slow way.

Congrats, have fun!!

In honor of your new ship, I took my old one out. She's still got it!

Congrats. 

The first and only premium I every wanted was Tirpitz. The day I finally had enough dubs to buy her was a special day for me. 

I hope you enjoy her.

NP.

I sat on mine after unlocking it for an age. Then I discovered I should have unlocked it much sooner. 

Whatever the case, use it as often or as rarely as you will, congratulations on making your long-term cherished goal.

As someone from “that state up north,” I feel a little dirty and disgusted with myself every time I take mine out into battle. :Smile-_tongue:

But yet, those accurate, hard-hitting 457s lure me back every time… :Smile_veryhappy:

Congrats. Montana is a solid tier 10 BB. No, it doesn't have any huge strengths but it doesn't have any glaring weaknesses either. She's a solid all-rounder compared to some of the other BBs at tier 10.

Montana was also my first ever T10 ship (on EU server). She (and, ofc, NC and Iowa before her) took my John Doe to 21pts.

She's the one that helped me getting some of my greatest outcomes in this game: best ever damage (at that moment) both in randoms and ranked, most kills in a random battle (7, with no kill steal), wiping out a Smolensk in one salvo, killing another Montana in two salvos, my biggest one-salvo damage (82k to a Slava)... just to mention a few.

For her outstanding performance (at least from my p.o.v), I decided she earned in battle those 200db for her military permacamo, so now she looks good too.

 

(My next candidate for a permacamo would be my Halland)

Not sure there is a “best” t10 anything. There are ships you play well/strengths match your playstyle. Monty is probably one of the best BBs simply because she isn’t the best at anything but really good at almost everything. Her survivability is really good especially with the legendary mod.  She’s hard to sink unless you insist on showing BBs your broadside or simply want push into dds before they get swept. She’s really tanky. 12 16s end a lot of problems although they are floaty at 18km +. Enjoy
