    I finally got the NC...

    First win of the day. Did 6k damage cause I only got to shoot at the yammy before my team steamrolled the enemy. Lost 35k credits. Yup I might as well sell it before it loses me credits. Meanwhile I'll continue with my Phoenix which currently has higher average damage than my NC. Nothing compares to the frustation this ship gives me tbh. Nothing, not even Wyoming or New York levels of dispersion didn't make me want to uninstall this bad. Thank you all for your advice. I appreciate it, although I don't think anything will get better for me with this ship.

    I finally got the NC...

    I honestly don't know what to do with this thing. Maybe it's the stock hull that is making me hate it as I absolutely loved NC when I played it on the test server, but I still don't know how to get around it. So far I've only had games with 20k damage or even 10k and hell there was one where my shots for some reason wouldn't land on anything and i just suicided giving broadside to the whole enemy fleet. I didn't experience such problems with the stock colorado nor new mexico. Hell my first 2 or so games on those were pretty decent. But this? It's like you're playing a cruiser with just W and S keys only. I do know the B Hull improves the rudder shift by a ton, but that's not the only issue I'm having right now with this thing. The guns are abysmal. The shells are so slow that even the slightest maneuver from the enemy ship will make all the shells miss. Whenever I try to get close to the enemy I get torped to death cause I might as well not have A and D keys to turn. To me this feels like the moment I press that W button, I'm on my inevitable trip to hell and nothing can save me. The most damage I've done in this thing so far has been 85k, and it was only because I managed to get 3 blind cits on a smoked Neptune, who accused me for cheating. Yes I am aware that I have to keep my bow pointed towards the enemy so don't waste time trying to explain how I should angle and such. My hit ratio on this thing is also worse than any of the other ships. PLEASE HELP!

    German BB's are making me want to quit this game...

    FTFY... or at least that's the way I see it XD

    You can't pick fights carefully on a Colorado. It's too damn slow. It's either go in and suicide to do some damage or sit back and do no damage cause your guns are terrible at range, or you charge with your team but they're too fast and they either die or kill the enemy before you even get to shoot for the first time. There are times when I spawn completely split off from the rest of the team and I can't catch up to them and have to face cruiser + BB packs in the other side of the map with barely any support, just like a match earlier when I had to hold a flank with 2 cruisers against 3 4 BB's 1 CA and a DD who were capturing the base. Ofc I died cause I had to face too many enemies, but I managed to do something. Meanwhile the rest of the team was pushing the left side. Now if I went to the left side I would've gotten 0 damage off, cause I was so behind the rest of the team.

    The funniest thing is when they say KEEP YOUR DISTANCE! DON'T BRAWL! What in the name of god am I supposed to do with a BB that was made for brawling but got knocked out of the water as soon as these weird machines appeared. And how in the world do I keep my distance versus a BB that goes twice as fast as me. I'm talking about the pre tier 8 ones as the tier 8+ are terrible in themselves with exposed cits and stuff from what I've heard although NC is pretty good from what I've seen in game. (Although why play it when Bismarck/Tirpitz exist which also have DD/Torpedo immunity)

    Well the new mexico is like a walk in the park to handle for my colorado. I don't fear them one bit. I actually hated that ship so much cause it went from 5-6 citadels a game to a 0 pens all misses the next. The colorado feels much more consistent although I'm not doing much sometimes. Show me a Bayern in front of me and you'll have me trembling and trying to angle the colorado as if I was facing a Yamato (which wouldn't even work but whatever). I don't care if they're easy to deal with cruisers or dds if there is no way to deal with them in a BB. People say they have weak guns yet they just go through my angled armor like nothing. This guy says you can overmatch their bow yet I do 0 damage wherever I shoot. I had a game yesterday, where a NC was capturing our base and it was nearly 100% captured. There was a cyclone going on and I was trying to save the base. I popped out of an island and the north carolina was standing still showing it's broadside to me with it's guns pointing on the other side. Took a shot, double cit, it blew up. Simple. Now imagine if that was a Bismarck or something German that game would be lost, as we were 2v2 and the other guy on my team was on his way to capture their base.

    Yeah you're right they hit for 200-300 damage less. But they have higher ROF so...

    Well it definitely takes an extreme amount of experience to play a BB that doesn't have the one weakness all the other ships of the same class have!!! Might as well just sail full broadside at anything and fire your pin point laser accuracy guns at the first thing you see.

    The funny thing about this thread is that everyone protecting the german BB's has a Tirpitz + Scharnhorst and a 80% sth WR with them but yeah... If the Iowa can melt this NC it sure as hell must be able to melt a Scharnhorst right? I mean, what could go wrong? It is a tier 7 against a tier 9 BB. Well it turns out 2 salvos of Iowa did nothing to it and most of the shells hit. Keep defending your BS credit farmers. What's more interesting is how everyone of these guys who "seem to know" german BB's weaknesses have much better WR with german BB's than their equivalents of other nations at the same tier. Well I don't really care. If WG wants to reward TOTAL PLAYER INCOMPETENCE might as well do so. But yeah maybe I should l2p if this one class of ships has no counter whatsoever.

    How much do I angle my Colorado to withstand the somewhat "weak" German guns though? I've been cit from 17 km's away from a nagato pretty much bow on, maybe 10-15 degrees and the shot pierced right through the hull (not deck) and cit me. That only shell that landed was a cit. And it was in a training room I tried vs bots.

    You can't always rely on your dd's and cruisers or carriers to do the job though. Cruisers always go away from all the BB's in my games, leaving them alone against enemy dd's. Carriers never spot dd's or anything (The enemy carriers always do this), and dd's just rush and die to enemy teams' dd's.

    I know where to aim. I've gotten 10-17k salvos on bismarcks showing full broadside by shooting at the upper hull. BUT, if that was another nations' BB I could've easily taken it out of the match with a good 30k-40k salvo instead.

    Thing is I like the Colorado a lot, much more than the New Mexico. I've had great games with it although I've been kinda unlucky with the teams I'm getting. I also find myself doing a lot better in higher tier matches with her. I just can't deal with german bb's for crap.
