What a stupid post. No one can tell you what ship to get, they can only tell you what ship THEY would get.

What type of car should I buy? 

Do you know if I drive a manual or auto? Do I need a big car cuz I have a family? Do I need a sports car for fun? Do I need a 4x4 for off roading? Do I need a convertible? Heck do I need a motorbike instead? 

Do you think a stranger can tell me what I should get? Hence its a stupid question. 

P. S. I don't eat cornflakes but I do enjoy snowflakes 🙂

Because apparently it's utterly illogical for people who want to buy something to ask people who have those things for recommendations.

Strange, strange world.

Two things:

1. Don't piss on my cornflakes - you wouldn't want to see me with piss on my cornflakes.

2. I have Georgia with a specialised secondary captain and she is hella fun - but I love all things secondary so I have bias.

I prefer Georgia, My most favorite ship i worked hard for to buy her. But its worth it due to my correct play-style of her. So i do not regret it.

since this ship is by far the most fastest tier 9 battleship. Faster than most Tier 10 Battleship and can keep up with some cruisers and destroyers.

 

The Awesome :

------------------------------------------

The reason why Georgia was a thing is because its unique gimmicks like Pre-Bismarck Secondaries that exceeds 11.3km , High speed going 39.2 Knots ( With Speed-Boost NOS active ) , 40 Seconds Cool-down for Repair Party like Massachusetts/B type do and like most United States Battleship, it has hard hitting AA.

At the cost of having only 3x2 guns. But don't worry, they are nasty as hell as it is due to the fact that 457mm MK.1 shells is super duper heavy that causes lots of problem to most ships, even Bussian Battleship cant stand up to you if you know how to hit it right. The Good Side is that it reloads faster and Hits 10x harder , plus its also Low Dispersion to compensate the low amount of guns.

That thing is horrifying fast, Its the most fastest BB in the class. The No.1 on top of the list of BB's , Its faster than some cruisers. and can keep up to destroyers when needed. With Sierra Mike Flag + Speed Boost, its about as 39 or even 40 Knots. The good thing about this speed boost is that it can last you longer than 3 Minutes, which mean you can be a soap.

Ah the Secondaries, this is also a descendant of Massachusetts/B type , Bismarck and Tirpitz. You got like what? a Dual Purpose 127mm/38 Dual MK.38 Cannon that shoots like Atlanta pew pew if you BFT + AFT build for it. The maximum range is 11.3 KM with a Mike Yankee Soxisix . Which you gonna put Yare Yare daze on any ship that dares to start brawling you. Kinda like if you OOOH YOU'RE APPROACHING ME?!! ~ Dio

The Repair Party is i don't need to explain A-lot, but I've learned a lot of lesson not to over used it , due to faster Cool-down Repair Party.

 

 

The Crap :

--------------------------------------------

The Downside is that, its basically a Iowa Prototype with 457mm cannon ( Gneisenau-like ) . That means like Iowa, if you broadside, you might as well Neck rope is an option due to the fact that even 220mm + cannon can make your life miserable. So its best you should angle front bow facing.

Being long hulled battleship means if you see any area of denial torpedo came from Shimakaze or Anything stronger, then may god have mercy on you. This so called " Torpedo Armor Protection " is piss poor weak at 26%. Its again like Iowa Hull.

Some people may not like it due to how ppl think its a Gneisenau when clearly its not because of high accuracy cannon on Georgia.

The 3x2 Gun is something that nobody wants to run it, Most ppl prefer 3x3 and 4x3 , 4x2 is trivial. people don't want low volume of cannon.

 

Verdict :

Georgia is better than overrated Smolensk , Jean Bart , Thunderer ( basically Conqueror but different stats ) , that disgusting Puerto Rico.

I mean Friesland is fine since its also unique but Georgia is even more unique that the fact is that this is the first USN Battleship to put NOS on it.

Your two questions you need answered:

1. Do you want to pilot a ship that irritates and psychologically scars the target and rest of the opposition while looking annoyingly smug and sniggering at all the shells you put out?
2. Do you want to be a annoying chicken sniper that your team hates because you fail to push?

Either way the salt is worth it

The tears of new players being beaten into submission by veteran players in their vastly superior ships. Well done WG, well done.

Not a lot of new players at T9/10.  Those that are probably will get belted around no matter what

Your call. I'm just only putting things into perspective. Frankly, I'd still be playing my SuperConqueror in CQC rather than sitting back. The game is already frequently slow enough especially at high tiers. To put things into context, 20 minutes is more than enough time for me to make sandwiches for a snack, make some tea, then pop into the shower and change. Heck, when I get sunk halfway in an ops, I leave and go fix a snack, only to return to see it still going on.

Either way, you get set on fire or get set on fire. The difference is just the size of the guns.
