its the most American taste, slow and obesse.....

if it wasnt slow and fat, i mean thicc... its not American enough

 

for the buff, i am suggest USN Fat BB line should have DD DCP, fast cooldown with short action time. and its hull will receive -50 HE damage.

WG was thinking that being as slow and fat as these USN BBs are, the average American could relate to them an would be willing to shill to preorder the line via crates for a easy buck

the fact that some of them were based on actual tillman designs helps too

It would be nice if they made the secondaries of these ship similar to Massa or Georgie.

At least they could defend themselves in close quarters.

NB: I've only played Kansas but I have played her a lot...

@unknownaussie if you don't like them, don't play them. 

(I'm not being a douche but you don't actually have to play them)

Yes they are slow but they have a lot of guns. Kansas has Colorado shells which are no where near as nice as NC+ shells but there are 12 of them.

If you adjust your aim a little at bigger ranges, you can minimise shatters/bounces.

The reload can be painful, you really want to be confident in your aim abilities to get the most from them.

Yes they are slow, and by T7-T8 that gets painful. What that means is you need to position far better than you would in other BBs.

It means you need to be assessing the way a flank will progress far earlier and move accordingly.

You do not want to be part of a push but as fire support from a secondary area. e.g. more towards the middle third of the map. Then use your nasty broadside weight to create a crossfire.

In summary; you want to position well, at least a few mintues earlier than normal, position differently to how you may normally play BBs and have better aim skills to get results...

If you don't enjoy them, ignore them, you dont have to play them...

I have no sympathy for those who were crying for USN BB split but don't like the result (not saying you were mate), USN BB split before a horde of lines and splits we actually need (IJN BB line has 3 BCs in it at different points).

If it makes you feel better, the next BB line is fast and sleek. No one even requests you to play those high tier New Mex.

Ah, but now it’s completely weak against air attacks!

..CV, we’re getting slaughtered by the Kremlin on this flank, please help.

Why aren’t you helping.

Why are you wasting time missing that DD when you are the natural predator of the Kremlin?

That's more of a WG / manufacturer defect. (Lacking in common sense and too much in ego.)

Not player / customer issue.

 

Ships in the rubbish burnheap will be transferred and exhchanged via coal or steel.

UU can only be exchanged with ship XP (Ship corresponding to that ship's UU and no FXP allowed).
Example:
T10 Des Moines.
Only T10 Des Moines ship XP (not FXP) can be exchanged for her UU (Enhanced Power Plant) in the armory.
And since the UU is an alternative gameplay playstyle, collecting the UU will be optional, not mandatory.
Sold the UU, no problem, just play the ship, collect ship XP, and re-buy UU again.

USN CC, I can wait.

RN and KM CC should be implemented first. (I hope both at the same time.)

T5 - T10.

 

I know there are battlecruisers that is T3 and T4 in both navy, but I don't want to complicate the low tier tech tree for the new players.

Low tier tech tree (T2 - T4) should only consist of the basic classes, C, DD, BB, CV and eventually, SS.

Splits can start from mid tier (T5 - T10) or high tier (T8 - T10).

T3 and T4 battlecruisers will be premium ships, but they can be bought via coal.

It's almost like many players don't understand the consequences of what they are asking for!  :Smile_veryhappy:

As for the new line, the T8 seems a bit poor, the T9 is balanced if bland, and the T10 looks a bit OP.  If you can have the patience for the long reload and the slow speed, and you know how to position and aim (the only two skills required for BB play), then you're going to have a very successful time indeed in the Vermont.  I can see it getting nerfed in 3-6 months.
