  1. 1. Does Yamato need a buff?

  2. 2. If so, what kind of buff would be useful for her?

    • Lowered citadel (USN levels)
    • Super-heal
    • Improved secondaries?
    • Slightly improved turret traverse
    • Improved rudder shift?
    • None?

Title says it all.

I feel that the Yamato looks rather... lackluster compared to the other tier 10 BBs. Right now, she is just basically a XP/Credits piñata for any HE spammer.

So, does Yammy need a buff right now?

Like really, does it need it. Im doubtful as it is the premier sniper in game with a bulky healthpool to shrug off hits.

ASIA meta isnt kind to it, but it doesnt mean it need a buff. It fulfill its niche very well, although wether the team need that niche or not is another story.

A one trick pony i guess.

Oh wow one of the minority thinking that Yamato is lackluster.

Yeah she might be boring to play at times thanks to how she handles. (Both guns and Current Meta combined)
Having the ability to lolpen 32mm of armor kind of making her worth a while compare to other BB like Montana, G. Kurfurst considering some Cruisers has 30mm of armor which can bounce 16" guns.

Yamato is powerful for that one department .... just one everything else is ...yeah lackluster.
If you find Yamato is not your thing then you might wanna try Battleships of other nations saving time and trouble trying to debate about which one is the best or even trying to get her buff.

If both GK and Montana could handle those cruisers with 30mm of armor, Yamato will truly be lackluster but meh I'm not the one making the decision.

erm, no. GK is the most resistant ship to HE spam becasue 203 shells shatter a lot on her deck and sides, the weakest ship to HE spam is hands down conq, 4-6k salvos from anything with 203+ guns

Does a ship require a buff? It depends on whether the said ship is able to perform her role well enough in average hands.

Does Yamato need a buff? Personally I do not think so. She is an amazing gun platform and her job is to spread terror of overmatch hype. She does her job damn well.

Let's go through the options: Citadel position, that's like her one of the two weaknesses. She is not a brawler, hence if you are getting cit hit in yamato, it means you are playing her wrong, and hence no buffs required to the "ship". Also the same reason why her turret traverse is also fine. You do not shoot left and right with Yamato, you grab a position, and hold it like a fortress. I also believe secondaries on yamato aren't really worth talking about and fine as is. Increasing secondaries will barely make any impact for average playerbase anyway. Her other weakness is AA, but I think that is not a problem either. Not all ships should have monster AA.

Yamato is still the deadliest damage dealer battleship in tier 10.

IMO, for current TX BBs:

Yamato -> Meant to be tank concealment build.

Montana -> AA and concealment build.

GK -> secondary and tank build.

Mongqueror -> sell it, just another tank concealment candidate.

GK is most easy to set fire is what he said, and that is true. GK has the biggest size, and hard to miss. And I'm pretty sure shattered HE can set on fire too.

Edit the poll, if a user chooses 'No' then put 'None' in the buff choices. Users are still required to answer the 2nd question.

Why do you think the buff should only apply to Yamato when that is also an issue for other big (and wide) battleships? (FdG & GK said, Guten Tag)

 

Yeah, I recognize that issue on the Yamato (which I have been playing in random & clan battles, FdG as well) but the positive side is that those "HE spammer" won't deal much damage after reducing certain part of the ship to zero, which is an actually good game mechanic. Though I played Yamato differently: (1) read the map (for where the enemy going) then plan out, (2) Bow forward or angled, (3) don't go near frontline (just 2nd line) & get critical damage to the enemy because of 2.1 sigma & aiming system upgrade for accuracy.

 

For fire prevention, I have DamCon (reduce risk) & 2 (reduce time), and fire prevention (reduce fire chance) & reduce fire & flooding time perks.

 

One question though... did you convey that issue from a friend or something? Because you don't have a Yamato and I wonder why you raise such suggestion to buff it, although Iowa counted in the concern but why Yamato?

Poll is flawed.  2nd question doesnt have "nothing is needed"

And where is the 'More Bacon Option'? Because (a) Every poll needs bacon, and (b) adding bacon as an option would make this poll 456% more relevant.
