Kongou laughs at Warspite

That 16.8 range on a T6 battleship. Sure its got good ROF, turn and speed, but the Kongou, a T5 battleship, was faster and turns harder, not to mention has more range. I was literally running circles of poi around the Warspite, raining down burning love before torpedo bombers stole my kill. Shamefur dispray!

 

Enterprise lovers, pray that the CV-6 never appears as a premium or it will be gimped as heck. Just like the Warspite. Likewise, I'm fearing for the Amagi carrier, seeing that Unryuu and her both aren't in the tech tree.

 

Save your tokens, the Warspite is so bad I don't even know why you would buy it. And this is coming from a girl who bought the Kitakami for the torp lols.

you just got nothing to say when you turn 30 degrees because torpedoes from a far while THAT SHIP ALREADY TURN 87 DEGREES

 

Now Warspite laugh at Kongou as she killed by torp from destroyer

This is actually pretty funny

She got better Turning Circle radius than even Shimakaze when her Rudder at max angle

I suppose the niche is a BB that goes for a close in brawl against cruisers and DDs rather than a gunnery duel with another BB.

 

But then you have to deal with that really thin citadel which at CQC is really easy to hit (unless it was a typo but if that is really the THICKEST bit of the citadel...).

 

Not to mention as a BB you are already spotted from afar. You won't be very healthy when you do get into range.

Her speed is quite pathetic too

 

but it's seriously hard to kill her with torpedoes even with TB

 

*meet a match full BB, Cruiser*

* RIP 7k5 tokens*

 

but since we didnt see any game play of Warspite we shouldnt really say she bad or not, let wait for a review

IF there is one :teethhappy:

Well if you take into account of her HE shells doing around 6k damage per hit, i'd say she is designed to take CA and DDs.

just take a look on Baron Warspite and i must admit....Warspite can hardly fight Kongou.....

like Halken said Warspite should focus on CA DD or CV, she cant go toe to toe with a BB

that range kinda hurt me a bit too...

Historically or just mentally from the game?

for the one who scored farthest Hit, hitting the Giulio Cesare at a range of approximately 24km (26,000 yards)

Hearing about her range is kinda hurt

from the range of course, we cant really complain anything about history ships

if i'm hurt about range of real life ships then it would be Yamato and Iowa :teethhappy:

I noticed something while watching Baron's video on the Warspite

 

The commander portrait has an American flag instead of a British flag.

her turret traverse speed is also pathetic. 75 sec for 180 degrees turn... two cruiser can gang her without problem. 

 

poor speed, poor turret traverse and poor range. RIP 7.5k token.

If you are in a 1 vs 2 fight you will probably lose even if you are not in a warsprite, and from what I have seen in some of today's matches if her gunes don't turn fast enough she just have to go close and let her secondary ones do the work

most bb can short work cruisers without problems but not this one. at current speed of warspite, there's no way she can catch cruisers at all. she can use her fast turn speed to aim faster but it also means she can only use two turret most of the time at close range.
