Just started playing the game a little with a couple of friends.
Which Battleship line is good to start with?
Is the Royal Navy one still good or?

Royal Navy battleships are not bad, but maybe not the best to start with. I'd recommend the American battleships.

RN battleships may actually be one of the easiest lines to make work somewhat, since you can mostly just load HE and shoot things with little regard for target selection (not recommended)

If you want to focus on battleships you'll learn the most from playing the USN ones since they tend to actually punish you for your mistakes.

This may sound unappealing but it's better to notice that you are making a mistake and learn from it than to settle into bad practice and have a much worse experience against experienced players later.

That being said, USN BBs stay slow until T7, which some find frustrating since the opposition tends to be faster by quite a bit then, so i'd suggest starting on both the USN and IJN lines.

In general maybe try out whichever class/line seems interesting at that point, see if anything catches your fancy.

 

Have a good time :)

Whatever you do, just don't start with the French. They only start getting good around Tier 6 to 7.

As it happens, those are the smae tiers where German BBs start getting "special".

What others have said; also, there is a lot to be said for playing at least some cruisers and (especially) DDs - that'll give you a very useful insight into what the other classes can/cannot do, and enable you to counter them better if you must play BBs...

 

Oh yes, bide your time - you'll get shredded by more experienced players if you rush up the tiers too fast (don't forget: from T5, you lose the protected MM).
