about time indeed! Now we'll wait and see whether she ends up as a free reward for the upcoming British Arc - doesnt seem impossible at least

Unfortunately she does give the impression of being a another very meh tier 3.

 

Of course knowing me, I'll get her anyway.

Given the rest of the game/ships, it was to be expected; I'll still get her though - it's Dreadnought!

She should be a "meh" ship if placed at tier 3 because she came before all other battleships and its better to be made an exception and placed at tier 2

In her case that was very much expected

Oh my, she's Warspite to Bellerophon's Queen Elizabeth.  5s faster rudder shift, 3k lower detectability, tighter shell dispersion. And it's Dreadnought, ffs. :cap_money::cap_money::cap_money:

With Big Gun Granny i see WG also made premium variants of the Colorado, Cleveland ans St. Louis. 

:cat_bubble:

Wichita is more of a Brooklyn rearmed with 9 203's though, if that's what you're referring to..

The captain grinding in RN for BBs seems to be rather easy in the future - especially on weeks like this with 200% first win, but even 100 is really good.

 

With Dreadnought, Vanguard to complete the Hood, Nelson, Duke of York and Warspite - I know my goal is to fix a few 19 p in the long run for RN BBs, I have 3 14 p only so far and 5 is 10-13.

I like really T6/7 play, much more than Mega zao - I do not find her fun. Jack is on my KGV.

 

Both these must buy ships - hope that at least Dreadnought will be some mission - she is a ICON:cap_horn:

Vanguard isn't really serious competition to even the Hood with that turret traverse though..

Given the price WG tends to ask for their T8 premiums, I care.

Vanguard will likely suck but I've got a thing for the real ship...

 

Clan mate said it's essentially running T6 guns. Whilst IRL any BB gun demands respect and Vanguard was rushed to have a +1 to RNs roster quickly. I can't see it being too strong in game. Haven't seen any stats but unless the 15" guns get monster accuracy and pen I can't imagine it being anything other than meh.

 

Guess it could have solid armour and ultimate AA, maybe radar, DefAA and Hydro? :Smile_hiding:

 

Feel free to send me hate mail if WG actually makes Vanguard a super consumable BB :cap_haloween:

I have a thing for the real thing myself, but not enough of a thing to excuse a turret rotation as slow as that.

 

I  am not asking for a OP premium, but please WG give her a better turret travese.

Well WG buffed Hood's turret rotation to something faintly silly. They're as quick as the Roma one's which go significantly against historic data. Plus those lol AA rockets.

 

WG want your CC details. Whilst I said it'll be meh, I can see them making Vanguard worth buying... :cap_money:

Well I am not going to tell you how to spend your money, I am not that much of a hypocrite. :Smile_teethhappy:

 

In either case, as these are the first stats posted, let's keep a eye on for further updates, no?

They could always give it Warspite accuracy as they are essentially the same guns, while toning down the HE, would make for a slightly more demanding play style than the rest of the brain-dead proof RN BBs...
