I heard people say it's the worse TX BB atm

Its the best in the camp hard meta that plagued ASIA server cause of dat lol pen :Smile_trollface::Smile_trollface:.

Like seriously , if fishes and birds dont threaten it , it can pretty much bow cit any other ships except DD. It specialized in anti BB combat and doesnt offer much else

You realise T10 cruisers have 30mm Armour that can only be overmatched by Yamato.

We have this running joke in Discord server:

 

> Dispersion is overrated.

> Overmatch is overrated.

...

This implies....

 

Yamato is overrated.

 

Even with such lolpen advantage, she is only ahead of Montana by a tiny margin in server stats. Actually that is going to go away since the Montana got massive unnecessary buffs.

If you remove the ability to overmatch that 32mm of armor what does the Yamato has to offer from the rest of the tier 10 battleships ?

You have 9 guns at the most and they turns VERY slowly people might say Yamato is about "predicting" but doesn't that applies to all other battleships as well?
You have All or nothing armor just like American which suffers from all kinds of High Explosive also you have that weird citadel which if that AP shells hit and didn't bounce its likely to pen it.
You'll notice certain cruisers even have more than 35mm of armor and you can't overmatch that.

Yamato IS overrated.

Just count any cruisers with more than 32mm of armor at certain part of their vessel. All of them have the potential to bounce the biggest gun in the game.
Also don't forget the autobounce rules if that said Yamato hits the Raw citadel armor at an angle its likely to bounce as well.

Yamato's overmatch power is not the reason players play passively. Playing passively is all down to the players themselves.
They do however find all kind of reason to play passively.

Easy solution, hit anywhere but the citadel. No other bb in the game counters t10 cruisers as well as yamato.

I would rather pound a cruiser with Montana 12x sledgehammer than Yamato measly 6 ( Yamato has a hard time using back turret with that turtle like turning).

Monty smash cruisers much more effective with bigga broadside , better turning and better speed giving cruiser less chance to disengage

Yamato is far more effective against cruisers that angle. Monty just bounces off the hull.

Some interesting posts here. Not a ship I've fought against much, but Im sure some of the more experianced players can shed some light on it.

What I find funny is that the Zao has only about 8k less average damage and similar player stats overall. All hail Batleship Zao!

There are no bad ships at tier 10, only bad players. Except the french. 

actually, the HI-V is quite strong for T10, the armor and speed combined with the decent guns and CA traits means that you can farm quite a bit and still fulfill DD duties late-game
