    Vanguard: lacking something to be good

    Maybe you should ask next time, if you do not understand what makes a ship strong. It is that super amazing cooldown on the heal, coupled with that maneuverable and tanky Alabama design, and the USN 406mm guns. Yes, they are USN and that means the worse sigma isn't as much of a problem, especially since that amazing heal allows you to be so aggressive. Not only is the heal stronger on Massachusetts, turret layout and armor plating make it more survivable.

    That poor JB review was just an example Anyway, I will adapt to this ship, like I always do. Still it doesn't feel strong overall. The accuracy is the only reason to play it for me, but it might be reason enough.

    Vanguard: lacking something to be good

    The ship is lacking compared to something like the Massachusetts. Whoever thinks differently, buy it and then talk to me again. Aerroon doesn't have a clue at all (as he previously showed with his JB review). As usual, Flamus review is the only one useful, even though I don't like his attitude in general.

    Vanguard: lacking something to be good

    How often do we need to say this? Every new ship performs well statistically, because the devoted players get their hands on it first. Well, almost every new ship (looking at Le Terrible...).

    Almosr ready to Quit this game

    Sorry mate, but many experienced players are simply tired of responding to clear L2P issues. If fire is such a problem for your BB play, why don't you just run a full tank build? (FP, BoS, High Altert, India Yankee, etc..)

    Calling the AA "hilarious" was simply an overstatement, since you still have no chance against the CVs that you regularly face. But you are a CV main, so of course you think differently.

    Hood has improved AP angles though. Don't really feel a difference in penetration to be honest.

    Vanguard: lacking something to be good

    People seem to believe this handles like a cruiser. In fact, you don't notice a big difference to ships like Alabama. Maybe because of the turning circle, I don't know. Wouldn't call it hilarious, if you compare it to NC, Bama, Massachusetts, Kii. And if you are just saying that they all have "hilarious AA", I wonder how many planes it can shoot down before you strike it with your Midway...

    Wowsft.com has it with 0.015, not standard 0.033. And I am not the only one. Flamu says he struggles a lot as well with the AP against BBs.

    Hood and Duke of York both have 67.5. These are also the other recent RN premium BBs without "real" RN BB HE. Where do you think I got the idea?

    That is why it is a good idea to use propulsion mod on BBs and on cruisers like Stalingrad. It enables you to just stay in a good position.

    Vanguard: lacking something to be good

    For that you would have to keep moving all the time, and even then it doesn't always help. It is often better to stay at a certain position for crossfire or area denial. The gun angles make that harder than it should be.

    Vanguard: lacking something to be good

    Yeah, maybe it is the fuse time, I don't know. But with BB broadsides at range, it leaves you hanging a lot.

    Vanguard: lacking something to be good

    So I played a bit in the Vanguard, and it just isn't a good ship, because it is missing advantages for the trade-offs that it makes. The small AP caliber (no overmatch) would be ok, if the gun angles where not so bad. The bad gun angles would be ok, if it had the normal RN BB firechance. The bad AP penetration would be ok, if it had better AP angles. The better heal could make up for that, if it wasn't 32mm all around and didn't have to show broadside all day. The ship has too many negative aspects overall (weak armor, high citadel, bad gun angles, low range, low penetration, slow shells). It just feels that all you get in return is the better heal, which is already negated by having to show boradside all game. It desperately needs better gun angles. If it cannot have that, it needs something like RN BB fire chance or RN AP angles. Currently it is just a turd armor ship with bad gun angles, that shoots weak AP and can't properly spam HE.

    Vanguard and Dreadnought are in the shop...

    Does the coupon work for the Vanguard only btw? Should be a nice catch for 30 Euros. Got the double-pack for myself though, as I probably won't be able to do all missions in December.
