It annoys me that WG gives more love to USN premium ships than to IJN. How many USN ships do they need to put out?? Very unbalanced gameplay as IJN has no premium carrier or high tier battleship to compete with other nations premium battleships. How long do players who love IJN ships have to wait for their turn to purchase premium ships. Is there gonna be Tier 9 premium battleship to compare with the USS Missouri? I would love to see Musashi (Oct 1944) config as premium ship has they are sister ships but with different stats. As German navy has three sets of sister ships both premium and non premium ships in their tech tree.

The US is the only tree that doesn't have a T8 premium, the Alabama will simply bring it upto par compared to the rest of the main tech tree branches which in some cases have multiple T8 premium ships to choose from.

Yeah, I have always wondered why WG gave the US lines a ton of premiums at t7 but no t8. Meanwhile IJN doesn't even have a t6 and 7 to choose from.

 

Anyway, the Alabama seems to be a very solid ship. Would be perfect for people who like NC but don't have the intention to go up to Iowa and Montana like me.

They're probably planning some now. For all we know they may even have Musashi planned

Whoa.
with that stats, its basically a better North Carolina, with a slightly worse concealment.

if they doesn't change that stats, this might be the first time i'll buy a premium ship.

Cuz i do love my North Carolina

Everything is fine. It trades a little HP for smaller turning circle.

 

But the ridiculous 50% torpedo protection? Even better than the Iowas that are supposed to replace it (27% with mod) ? Seems like fake to me.

This is a no-brainer alternative to Missouri and a better ship overall. Why would anyone get Missouri over this?

Its smol, have great rudder & turning circle, torpedo protection that screams USN superiority, and all the great stuffs taken from N.Carolina.

 

Now we need a catchphrase for derps driving Alabamas.

Literally all the ARP ships are IJN premiums. What we really don't need are more Russian Ships.

 

Well, no not really.

They don't have the most important aspects in being premium, that is credit/xp multipliers and ability to retrain normal captains without the penalties.

 

IJN doesn't have the options for any high tier premiums except for Atago. Tone will probably be released never. But on the bright side, a premium IJN CV will be released next year if the news were true

 

So yeah, Alabama is good, and need more high tier IJN premiums

sigh

I would prefer South Dakota 'itself'

I thought prem ships aren't suppose to be better than the same tier ship, does this mean  alabama will be weaker than NC in a certain way or something?
