I find that Colbert is a turly noob ship. 

When Colbert shoot 1000 shells and get 200 hit and 2 fire(usually be fixed), I find I cause 10000 damage while Venice achieve that in just one volley.

And things going worse when I fight against an enemy Venice. First, it is sad that I can't hit Venice in 10 km because she is 40 knots. Second, her SAP can hit me even Im 40 knots.

Finally, her SAP always caused damage. Colbert has a huge superstructure like the Palace Museum, Squared and grandiose. I remember I was hit by Venice, and lose 20000 hp in one volley, while my Bow Pointed Straight at her.

I thought that colbert is a not powerful but interesting ship when I do not faced Venice and Stalingrad, if I faced, it is a weak noob ship.

And now there is a 16*14050 ship, even can hit colbert's citadel. Cause 224800 damage in one volley, can kill a colbert for six times.

cool, then dont play her then. no one is forcing you to play a ship that everyone know is shit.

also, ven cant go 40kt, the fact that you are danceing in open waters where she can blap you that easily implies to me that it's not even the ship's problem...

38 knots, 41.4 knots, 40 knots, those are similar. Dont be so unkind and stern.

SAP takes 6 or 7 seconds to hit in 12km, I need 2 second to observe and its hard to elude.

Maybe you can share me some experience to elude midrange fast shells.

5k battles, and this guy compares an oversized Marceau with a CA that needs a lot of nerfs.

Just because the MM puts them in the same category, you are not supposed to think the same.

Colbert uses DD guns while Venezia was designed by the same country that exported their technology to the Soviets, hence their same railgun-like ballistic. You don't see DD shoot their guns to far targets for that reason.

Yes, railguns are interseting.

I mean that colbert's squared model is easy to be hit. That is really awful. If AP hit the superstructure, get 1/10, SAP  get 1/3.

you dont, colbert has shit handleing esp after they nerfed her starting speed to henri's level in ST, if something with railguns shoot you at mid range it will hit, you can only A and D to dodge because if you use WSing you will get fked on the next salvo, just play colbet behind a island like how she's meant to. the speed boost is there so you can get to a good island early and fast or island hopping when a chance shows up, not for open wating

Thank you for your sharing.

Seems I need to find my machine gun position.

the usual DM spots work pretty well, but do keep in mind you are a LOT weaker to people bumrushing you than a DM

And that is why I think most players hardcore hatred towards Smolensk and Colbert really are unfounded ; seriously a Thunderer is even more consistent in starting fire and farming with fire and no less it hit way harder with every salvo , but that also explain the frustration  ....  Smolensk, Colbert ( and by extension Atlanta and Flint ) they are not CL , really they are just over sized DD with weak CL hull and CL concealment , speed and not that great maneuverability

I'm expecting a rant with the usual name shame and "NOOB COLBERT FK ME CNM"

I'm greeted instead by a more...peaceful thread

Disappointed.

Colbert is a smokeless Smolensk/Friesland. Or a T10 Atlanta. Either way it's out at the far corner of the parameter space of WoWS ship design.

When I get one on my team I always do my best to lay smokes for him, because I know that's pretty much the only way he's going to be able to do anything useful.

I think you should forget fighting against CA's (since you cannot penetrate their 30mm deck armor even with IFHE), and consider BBQ BBs with 2 firing range upgrades and support DD dogfight instead.
