Got confirmation on Facebook stream. The Fat Albert is OP. I hope they don't nerf it and just make it unavailable. I would buy it while you can. I find it a real fun low stress bb to play and love the thing. It is a great seal clubber.

I fail to see how a ship with a max range of 10.8km fighting ships that have longer ranges and that are faster than it can be termed OP.

I already have an OP seal clubber. Called Imperator Nikolai.

Compare Albert to the other BBs of same tier. She's an absolute beast in tier 3 battles. When there are T4 ships present, she could be kited easily -- but most players at that tier don't realize that, and will invariably wonder into the range of her guns. Same reason why Isokaze is so powerful, most people at that tier don't abuse the WASD hack.

Because you have to compare it to the other Tier 3 BBs which aside from the Nassau both suck pretty bad.

I can't do a thing in mine.

 

But check my stats out so far in the Nassau. I do double the damage with the Nassau for some strange reason.

​I have both. The one advantage Albert has right now is people do not see you and scream for the rest of the team to focus on you like they do in Nikolai. They will learn.

Its pretty good, I have had only one T3 battle and did very well, but in a T4 battle, your pretty not OP, those T4 BBs out range, out hit and pretty much out drive you.

I think it's partly to do with the pool of players at tier 3, especially with the limited MM.  The amount of low-tier players who actually think to kite the Albert will probably be rather small, and many players will be sailing broadside so can be deleted before they become any serious threat.  The worst enemy will be other sealclubbers who can shut the ship down relatively easily.

Even if they do Nikolai is damn hard to kill.

I get that.  She is clearly superior to the other tier 3 BB's.  I just wonder what "superior" means relatively when the other tier 3 battleships are complete and utter trash.  3 is more than 1 but still less than 13.  

 

At only 2200 gold, though, I might get her to mess around with.

Act now, supplies are limited... 

 

When you get over the range, and the world's slowest turret traverse (Warspite feels good by comparison), she's not a bad ship - it's generally the player-base at tier 3 which makes it feel as strong as it is. She's still susceptible to fires and torps though.

I fail to see how the Mogami was OP pre-nerf, so....

Wait, you don't see how a ship that fires 15x 155mm HE flame throwers every 7.5 seconds from 18km was OP?  Ok.  Such is life.

For example being able to semi-reliable citadel St. Louis. Or flashing broadsides to get that sweet,sweet ten gun salvo because you know most people at those tiers shoot HE, can't hit jack, and if you encounter a semi-decent player, chances are your OP armor will negate the damage.

+IJN torpedo boats. Zigzagging is fine and all, but make a wrong guess -- and poof, most of HP is gone.

Exactly, it's all relative. KA is good, but not that good. Nowhere near Nikolai levels of OP.

It was great.  I made sure to finish my Mogami grind BEFORE the AFT nerf.  Why are people afraid to admit that they enjoy being OP?

Konigs dispertion from main guns is UTTERLY HORRIBLE!  Forget to trying to kill anything at 10km range, even at 5km I couldn't believe how terrible the shots landed when I played it. I'd much rather play my Ark Beta

Are you serious?  Her salvos are stupidly good in their dispersion.
