Hello,

ANOTHER SOUTH DAKOTA , AGAIN?!

We got like uhm North Carolina , Alabama ST and Alabama. Why uhm Massachusetts? Why another South Dakota for T8?

Like this a T7 or T6 CV may loses alot to these guys with said 3 USN T8 BB.

INB4 the "prem perk” she gets is DFAA

Another BB to make low tier CV suffer if the match on opposing team is North Carolina , Alabama and/or Massachusetts.

I bet it had Radar or DFAA (apparently it had more 40mm Bofors). Because Gimmicks.

 

Anyway, what a stupid release. Another carbon copy - as if we haven't had enough US BB already lol.

If the IJN can have Kongo and Myoko clones then I don't see why the USN can't either.

Not intending to buy premium ships, but shouldn't they add more other nation or tier ships first? This do feels like WG using minimum effort, duplicate the ship, change the spec a bit, then charge people for a fortune. Yes, I know they need to earn and that is how business works, perhaps this only target those that love Massachusetts in real life.

No. We have Alabama. North Carolina is a separate two ship class with Washington. 

South Dakota, Massachusetts, Indiana and Alabama made up the four ships of their class.

What pisses me off though is that I just bought the Alabama as a proxy for the USS Massachusetts that I visited several times as a kid!

Forgot USS Indiana....

Hey pal im talking about the extra more T8 USN BB capable of AAW not the History class.

Why need more alot of USN BBs when already T6 and T7 CV are suffering?

Hardly a history lesson, pal... Your statement about the NC being a South Dakota was incorrect.

The problem with the SoDak class is the positioning of the existing US ships in the Tiers and the Tier set up.

A SoDak in the real world, was an improvement  over the NoCar class with a few exceptions that make no difference in WoWs:

  • overall the SoDak was more cramped. It happens when you squeeze the same tonnage into a smaller ship
  • the SoDak has less cruising range

Otherwise, a SoDak BB has better armour, same main guns, same large AA/dual purpose guns, slight difference in light AA...

 

She's better than the NoCar but worse than an Iowa.

So they have to make up disadvantages to fit her into Tier 8...

 

Rubbish.

 

With changes like this, due to how the game is set up, it deviates more and more away from "a little like real life" to "only the shapes look similar"...

The only thing close to real life in this game has always been model accuracy. Everything else is fudged to make the game more playable in an arcade setting.

Yes, and that's becoming more a thing than before.

Every additional fudge, every little tweak here and there that's not even based on real world stuff, is another push further from what it was.
