Apart from the Alpha version of the Chester, this is by far and away the worst ship I've played in game.

It's lucky if it hits the ocean when you fire, the De Moine rips it to shreds, it will miss 80% of it shots from 7km out.

In terms of time to acquire, i seriously urge you to avoid.

It does the rare massive salvo hit, but overall I find this thing awful.

It's much better in 3.1.

 

 

To be fair, Des Moines rips everything to shreds. No exceptions.

Get it and park it in your garage because it costs too much credits to field and isn't particularly good.

 

I rate historical accuracy 8/8

That's what I do with mine. Sitting in Truk Atoll serving sake and curry rice to the crew.

@OP ; You must be doing something wrong.

Just as in WoT - Adapt your playstyle to the vessel, instead of expecting the vessel to adapt to your playstyle.
I am pretty satisfied with the Yamato, even though I prefer to play cruisers and destroyers. My stats in the Yamato so far :

You're looking at around 200k~250k for a full repair +ammo(?). 

 

After watching the 2005 movie "Yamato" I want to take it out more often but, that repair bill...

I found the Yamoto is played best as a close in brawler.  I loved Islands of ice map with the Yamoto (normally I hate that map with a passion).  Get close and RNG goes away and every salvo becomes a lesson in devastation.  The long range rng 1 hit one kill shots (every 3-4 games) goes to 1 hit 1 kill every 2 salvos.  And yes you really do need to watch out for the Des Moines.  Everything else is your bit**.  Play it at long range and yes of course it is going to suck.  The IJN had 18" guns but horrific gunnery aiming technology, you will mist 2 out of 3 salvos at long range.  Get close.  Teach them what 18" guns do to piddly little ships at 3-5 km.

 

Yamoto always needs a DD or CC escort.  Please play it in a Division or ensure your team understands. (honestly if you aren't playing a BB with a CC escort you're doing it wrong)

Des Moines is a notably OP ship. As to why would you fight one without support, is beyond me.

Because most of the time in PUG this quote from Lord of the Rings sums it up.

26% hit performance with Yamato. That's not even fair :amazed:

 

Did WG just update the account view? It's pretty neat to see how well you fare on each ship, so i can gauge my overall performance. :D

i will agree Yamato is a bloody terrible ship, i have sold mine twice... There is a good reason why i want Super Yamato at t10 and Yamato at t9 afterall... That Izumo thing should be made a tier 7 premium ship its not a tier 9 lol...

i bought it again once thinking maybe i was just playing like a noob in it but nope, its just plain terrible, heck id rather go to battle in an Amagi than a Yamato in the same tier. the only thing Yamato is good for is shooting the water at 25km...

i agree that we should have yamato at tier 9  than Izumo also move Izumo to lower tier in 2nd BB line ( if they have ) but problem is what veriant   of A-150 design(Aka S Yamato) should we use to match Montana if yamato is on tier 9 we should have all of her upgrade since 1941 1944 also 1945 that will match the Iowa's upgrade too

Actually - Why not the Yamato-Kai?

 

It essentially is a Yamato with better AA (Instead of the lousy 127mm it's armed with the 100mm and even MORE 25mm) and the main belt is slightly weakened to 400mm but the tons saved is used on to strengthen the overall structure and better protection for torpedo attack.

 

Give it the same guns stats as the Yamato right now and drop the Yamato to Tier 9 and nerf it's hit point, ROF to ~1.7~1.8 RPM and possibly use the orignial hull which had nowhere near as much AA than the 1945 Configuration - but kept the 4 155mm secondary. 

 

Any ideas?
