Arizona could be pretty good in Ranked. I have a hate - hate relationship with the Warspite. No idea why. I haven't used my Leander in a very long time. You got to use its stealth abilities to the full, and being stealthy isn't my strongest area of gaming in WoWs.

Wish I had kept my New Mexico and Bayern, as I would take them for a spin. I have a Dunkerque, which is pretty good in the right circumstances. Not sure ranked is right for it though.

Leader will be useful for smoking. What don't you like about the Warspite? It's had it turrets speeded up a month or so ago and it does have the best accuracy where it's at.

Oddly Flamu doesn't like the New Mex for Ranked even though he recommends the Arizona.

Fucking everything. :lol:

Don't ask why because I don't know. It just bugs the hell out of me. I hate the dam thing. Cant explain it, I really cant. :?

There's stats floating around the low tier RN BBs, Bellapone looks quite a monster at that level. Fastest BB and has a range of 15km 0_0 Also batting a 1.8 sigma, Kawachi she ain't. Looks like the KGV is getting 15inch guns only.

Yeh I heard KGV was getting 15" guns. I can understand that, if they cant get the 14" to work/balance correctly at T8. As long as it retains its 4x2x4, I for one wont mind.

The Bellapone really does look like a monster if those stats are true.

Latest update has taken off the conqs 18inch guns and replaced them with 4x3 16.5 inchers, which means its the same as all the others now. Also the Bissy 2ndies have been weakened, less damage and less chance of starting a fire. Still hit out to 10.6 km though.

I did wonder if the Conq's 18" guns would go. After all they have constantly said that nothing will out do the Yamato, so it surprised me they put 18" guns on it in the first place. Should still be pretty punchy. But I am slightly disappointed it will look just like all the others.

On the Bizzy. I am slightly concerned at them nerfing its secondary guns. At T8 its 15" guns are adequate, but that's all they are. Every other BB it meets out punches it, so having great secondary guns was a unique part of its appeal.

On the subject of the current season of ranked. I haven't played much of it. I cant get into T6, no idea why. It just leaves me a little cold. I guess I played T6 enough when I was grinding the Fuso/Bayern/New Mexico etc, that I just cant be bothered.

Think I will wait until the RN BB's are finally out, and jump on them. I am looking forward to the lower tier ones.

Subtle but large difference, the yammy has 18.1 inchers and the conq had 18imchers. That .1 allows the yammy to pen through the bow of other battleships while the 18 cannot.

The Atlanta is on sale today. If you've already got one and buy it you'll get the doubloons instead which works out at half price for them. £15 for 9000 instead of £29. They've had a different ship on sale everyday this week.

I have always been tempted, but I don't think it will suit me. I almost bought Prinz Eugen yesterday. Always wanted it, but decided to hold off. I would only be buying it because of its name.

There are strong rumours going around that a new RN BB premium will be popped out when the full line is released. Cant see it myself, but lets see.

The thought was that the Monarch, which is the KGV with 14inchers, would appear at tier 7 as a premium.

A KGV in its original layout with 14" guns, will be far to tempting to ignore. But surely they would call it Prince of Wales, or Duke of York? It would fly out of the shop.

Yeah Monarch is just a test name, the Monarch was actually an ex-KGV of the old type so the name works well, since its the old test version of the ship.

Monarch now has 3x3 61 inchers, which makes it a bit like all the other ships in that format. Conq now has its 18incher back.

Its gone shit now. Nelson is premium, KVG is tier 7 and a KGV with 3x3 16inchers is tier 8.
