    She is surprisingly strong for a T8 cruiser, given that her absurd DPM and concealment outweighs her comparative disadvantage in the agility department. I'm not surprised that a nerf will come eventually for her.
  2. You finally posted that thread, which is the reference.
  3. Hello everyone, long time no see. I assure you that Earl were fine, clearly not crazy, and actually went researching for once! Here's the result of it. As you might know, the Admiral Hipper-class were one of the most numerous to be represented in-game with five ships, that is Admiral Hipper herself, Prinz Eugen, Weser (ex-Seydlitz), Tallinn (ex-Lützow), and Mainz (WG's interpretation of Cruiser K concept). However, as a Hipper fanboi, i still find this not enough to fulfill my inner desire, and hence i made this proposal of five additional ship to make it a whole 10-ship class. Strap on your seatbelt, we are going for a ride Blücher - Tier 7 Discount Hipper The second ship of the Admiral Hipper-class, Blücher were known for her short service life. As the newest cruiser in the fleet, she led the Oslo group during the invasion of Norway, and sank after she was bombarded by Krupp-made 28 cm guns from late 19th century and buckled by two Austro-Hungarian made torpedo from 1900s. In my opinion, this should be a cheap premium for WG to make. As you know, the old flat-bow Hipper A-hull has been removed recently, and i believe with few changes it could be a decent premium at T7, with 27 mm plating and full icebreaker she can tank more battleship at that tier than Yorck while maintaining most of Hipper's feature. Of course, no AA whatsoever for balance, but who needs AA nowadays? Seydlitz - Tier 9 Buffed Hipper The fourth of the class, she was originally to be armed with 150 mm guns (represented as Mainz in-game), however was later decided to finish her as full blown heavy cruiser. Being part of the improved Prinz Eugen sub-class, Seydlitz incorporated changes such as lengthening of the hull, additional AA, and newer radar system. She was 95% by 1942, but the war halted further construction. Later on, she was converted as an aircraft carrier (Weser) but never finished. As she was the apex of the Admiral Hipper-class, she should of course fulfils the Kraut Space Magic stereotype to justify her "improvement". New radar system? Slap Tallinn's 12 km short radar gimmick. Improved AA? Slap DFAA in separate slot and use's Mainz's AA suite. Part of Prinz Eugen sub-class? That means she got a heal! Make her reload down to 10s! Fuck Roon, this bad girl will wreck that cursed thing. Hindenburg - Tier 10 Super Hipper If Mainz wasn't enough for your HE farm needs, then i suggest you take a look at this (i put so much effort to this, i even modelled the whole thing!). She's not necessarily real, but so was Roon or GK. I read somewhere that Germany designed triple turret for Hipper guns, so how about we enlarge Mainz and slap these turrets instead?! I'm smart, right? Lützow - Tier 5 Disabled Hipper The last of her class, Lützow is a story full of shenaningans. I'm sure you already know at this point that she's in-game as Tallinn. "What's the point" you might ask...well, that thing is not German! Damned thing is so bad at being a cruiser it's not even funny. Anyway, she was sold to the Soviet Union in a somewhat tragic unfinished state, with only two turrets and some machinery in place. This, in my opinion, would be a good Tier 5 cruiser. 27 mm plating paired with turtleback will make her invincible at T5, paired with two 203 mm turrets will make her a deadly bow tanking cruiser, with her super AP and dangerous HE pen. Last but not least... AL Prinz Eugen - Tier 8 Weeb Hipper Prinz Eugen, but with Azur Lane camo. No KC, sorry. Even Fucking BLITZ got better shit than us. WTF?! Thank you.
  4. Remember that the De Ruyter i talked about is the later, 1950s De Ruyter. Her sister, DZP, is the premium T8. So i'm not that far off.

    Perhaps, considering the latest addition were Coal and Steel categories, it would be too crowded there How much? i speculate around 3-3.5 million FxP would be enough for the average player considering the performance

    Let's just say i want to have few laughs over the weekend, gone a bit too far on "realism" despite the obvious hints and some people actually believed it. Until today, there's people still asking about it on FB and Discord.

    Fancy for you to say that, let me refute some of your points 1. She is reportedly reached 35.2 knots during sea trials for her Vietnam reactivation, thus earning distinction as the fastest battleship ever put to sea (and gave rise to 37 knot Iowa myth). Based on that, it is plausible to offer such mark as her primary gimmick and distinction to Iowa and Missouri. It is more deserved for this ship to receive that than Bourgogne, which is unable to achieve such speed under irl conditions if she was ever built. 2. Well if you don't realize it by now, the stats i posted are a combination of Iowa, Missouri, and Georgia. The concealment value were modified from the latter (https://wowsft.com/ship?index=PASB729&modules=1111&upgrades=000000&commander=PCW001&consumables=1111&pos=0), which is as follows; 16.41 km standard, 17.97 km after firing main guns in smoke, and 18.41 km when on fire. Of course, as like all devlog stats, these were prior to upgrades. 3. So what? Kremlin has larger guns, more practical armor, and other stuff. Does that makes her "unrealistic"? Perhaps, but for gameplay sake this is very reasonable. Moreover, as she had very high speed and speed boost option, i thought NJ's traverse would need to be fast for such playstyle (yes, i put more thought into this than you imagine or capable of thinking) 4. It's actually Missouri's AA, with two additional Bofors mounting and four Oerlikons to be exact, so not really "impressive". In fact, it has less AA DPS than Iowa in some places. 5. Perhaps, but 2.1 sigma on *USN* Dispersion is not really worth mentioning (North Carolina is the closest, as she had 2.0 sigma). Yes it's Yamato's sigma, i know. Yes, she can slot the dispersion mod, i know. "Superior" main gun accuracy compared to her peers for sure, but at the cost of less guns. You know Slava exists (arguably she has very bad dispersion for up close but that's different debate)? 6. It does matter. You know the Frenchie had MBRB and boost (remember, this NJ can switch radar for boost), yet still rather squishy? even they had turtleback which she noticeably lacked, moreover rather high citadel. A massive superstructure also doesn't make her that tanky.

    I mean you got boost/radar and MBRB for that, along with more consistent gun Seems like a fair trade, and i assume you can spec Artillery Plotting Room
  14. Ashen_Sky

    ST 0.10.4, New Jersey

    It has access to MBRB, which from my guess would be a 14s reload when active. And i guess more sigma (?), and with speed boost it goes 36 knots

    ST 0.10.4, New Jersey Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary. Announced adjustments and features may change multiple times during testing. The final information will be published on our game's website. In Update 0.10.4, American Tier X battleship New Jersey have been added to the game for testing. One of the famed Iowa-class, New Jersey is the fastest battleship ever put to sea, reportedly able to make 35 knots during trial. During the Korean War, she received a lengthy refit that enhanced her armaments and system. In this game, she received 9 fast-loading and accurate 406 mm guns in 3 turrets and an unusual consumable option for the class - a "Surveillance Radar" with a range of 10 km or enhanced "Engine Boost" consumable. In addition, she also has access to "Main Battery Reload Booster" to bolster her firepower . However, New Jersey maintained a weak protection and mediocre health pool for her tier Ship's characteristics: Hit Points - 80,100. Plating - 32 mm. Main Armament: Main Battery - 3х3 406 mm. Firing Range - 21.2 km. Maximum HE shell damage - 5,700. HE initial velocity - 820 m/s. Chance to cause fire - 36%. Maximum AP shell damage - 13,500. AP initial velocity - 762 m/s. Reload time - 28 s. 180 Degree Turn Time - 30 s. Maximum Dispersion - 273 m. Sigma Value - 2.1. AA defense : AA Guns - 10x2 127 mm, 21x4 40 mm, 16x2 20 mm, 33x2 20 mm. AA defense short-range: continuous damage per second - 392, hit probability - 70 %, action zone 0.1-2.0 km; AA defense mid-range: continuous damage per second - 540, hit probability - 75 %, action zone 0.1-3.5 km; AA defense long-range: continuous damage per second - 175, hit probability - 75 %, action zone 0.1-5.8 km; Number of explosions in a salvo - 8, damage within an explosion - 1,610, action zone 3.5 - 5.8 km. Maneuverability: Maximum Speed - 35.2 kt. Rudder Shift Time - 17.3 s. Turning Circle Radius - 900 m. Detectability: Surface Detectability - 16.4 km. Air Detectability - 11.3 km. Detectability after firing main guns in smoke - 17.8 km. Available consumables: Slot 1 - Damage Control Party Slot 2 - Repair Party Slot 3 - Surveillance Radar (action time - 30 s; detection of ships - 10.0 km; reload time - 120 s; Charges - 3) or Engine Boost (action time - 180 s; speed bonus - +15%; reload time - 90 s; Charges - 3) Slot 4 - Main Battery Reload Booster (action time - 20 s; reload time reduction - -50%; reload time - 120 s; Charges - 4) Read Here: https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/135 Opinions Sigh, from what we can confer is the fact that they really liked MBRB concept. Jean Bart, Austin, then this...At least it seems to be an Iowa with slight buffs here and there, with Salem-style choice of kite or radar setup. The speed boost seems worrying, as the base speed is 35 knots it could outrun many DDs if one opt out from radar... Also "Korean War"? I know NJ does get a refit later on, but the earliest i can find is 1960s (so Vietnam), but then again. I strongly suggest you check the devblog i linked above, i can't put much more detail here due to text constraint. Thought/s?
