I agree. But don't go around buying premiums with 55 battles please.

Try Duke of York, very very good ship. Worth every rubel you invest.

Not exactly sure how a grossly inferior knockoff version of the KGV is in any way a "very very good ship" but ok. Unless this was to deliberately troll the newbie.

Nothing wrong with DoY. 

 

Other than being a significantly worse version of the KGV.

Which, considering how overpowered the KGV is, still means that DoY is a perfectly fine ship to have as a prem.

If youre a pussy that uses HE sure, but if youre a man and use AP DoY is 10x better because of those sweet improved auto bounce/ricochet angles

 I think I've played it in co-op once or twice, not worth the grind.

Wasn't the problem with Vanguard the fact she'd have Warspite's guns 2 Tiers up? 

Kinda. Shed have supercharges tho, so higher velocity, pen and alpha will help somewhat. As you say that is the main balancing act when it comes to Vanguard.

 

Hull is almost tier 9 level of HP and AA, so at least theres that to help balance the guns.

When I first started playing WOWS, I was mildly surprised not to find Vanguard in the game already - I would have thought a lot of Brits would bite your hand off (once they'd got Warspite, Hood etc out of their systems)...?

You don’t think so? You’d get 75% Firechance, 20m Surface Detection and Zombie-Heal. I think WG knows what they are doing as long it is about British ships.

They still haven't done Dreadnought, ffs. WG seems to be much more concerned about how they flog these boats to a disinterested US and Asian market (playstyle gimmicks) than to an EU server which would excited by having that particular ship.

What are you smoking and can I have some? I'm sure KGV does something well but I haven't worked out what it is yet. Very frustrating ship to play and make work, and no fear at all when I see her on the enemy team. Maybe just not my cup of tea, but certainly not what I would call overpowered.

Since everytime Vanguard is brought up 112% of British citizens start spamming threads with these super-charges I did a bit of research because I haven't really heard of them being used at all or being that much of a game changer.

And, as far as I've read, they weren't used by Vanguard ever now have they ? No ship ever shot a single shot, even in training, with a supercharge. Besides, it would seem that they were never issued to guns that elevated at 30° because of barrel wear and stress and stuff, which would mean that Vanguard not only never fired them but probably never even carried any in the first place.

I don't have many sources on subject but the few I have have proven to be very accurate on many other subjects and I couldn't find any remotely reliable source to contradict them. So why is everyone claiming Vanguard, if implemented, should get supercharges ? There's absolutely no reason she should considering she never carried, used, or had anything to do with them.

Indeed this. Build up far more player experience before jumping into a premium vessel OP. You'll hurt yourself and your team. If you want to spend money I highly recommend buying premium account first.

They weren't issued to Vanguard during her career, but provisions were made for her to carry them in case of conflict (handling equipment, mounts reinforced to take the stress of firing at 30° elevation). Also, realistically, in game she'd need to have them, because T8 is really the only place where you can fit this ship.
