What does it have going for it compared to the P.E.F. or the West Virginia?

 

I have neither the Arizona, or the P.E.F.

 

Former I sold, latter I never bothered with, I have heard some talk she is OP?

Good joke, what's next, good armor? Arizona has 1.8 sigma and 220m max dispersion. That's barely better than several of the silvers.

With a  whooping 35s reload. Izmail shoots faster.

Highly problematic and not worth the money. The ship has two major flaws:

-Too slow turret traverse for a Battlecruiser.

-WW1 shells with bad values.

 

It also took a large hit when the AA went from very good at tier, to angry German with a bottle of beer.

Angry German with bottle of beer, lol, sounds almost like a football match, that had me laughing out loud for sure:Smile_teethhappy:

Even with the mediocre accuracy thanks to the number of shells she still feel very accurate and consistent. One of my favourites at tier 6.

Apart from being the best T6 BB in the game, Arizona has nothing going for her. 

OK, I guess we all have our favourites, I  mean West Virginia has longer rang and bigger guns, and I like her, not doubting you just wondering.

it's the best performing BB overall, at 50%, 25% and the top 5% of players. It's accurate, hits hard, claps hard on cruisers and BB's and has enough guns to land good damage on DD's. Good in the turn for avoiding torps and has more than good enough range.

You have heard wrong.

 

Arizona used to be very good ship. But changes of the armor models and introduction of new ships (namely Izmail and Normandie) have made it fairly medicore. It is still not a bad ship, but far from OP.

 

It is still better than PEF

I was referring to the P E F being op, just a general talk I heard ,I have the Normandie and I do like her, also one or two games in the Izmail, which just might grow on me yet.

Well my #1 ship is Hood, by far the most played. I picked it carefully.

But my #2 ship is Arizona... BOOMSHANKA! :Smile_izmena: :cap_like:

 

If you like the old slow US BBs she's great. I also have Texas, the premium NY. 

At Colorado it's getting a bit too slow in T7... but if you are top tier it's bloody murder.

It is not OP either.

 

PEF is very good when Top Tier. It guns cause penetration damage and citadels, when other BBs Overpenetrate and it has good dispersion.

 

 If it gets up-tiered, it becomes one of the weakest. Good dispersion does not do anything, when you have only 8.guns, with no overmatch capability and medicore penetration.

Accurate :fish_book:

If you can shoot DDs, take it. If you can shoot Cruisers, take it. If you wanna shoot BBs from longrange, take something else because it lacks pen. But if you get rid of DDs/Cruisers first, you can close the distance against enemy BBs and then you pen is good enough to punish them aswell.

Thats my hitrate in 16 games ranked sprint. And thats even with shooting DDs all the time, since there were games with 3-4 DDs quite often. Have only played 1 random game with it, where i got 44% Hitratio :Smile_hiding: This thing blapps Cruiser left and right.

Good sales pitch! I'll have to take my Arizona out for spin again one of these days, I guess - its' been a fairly long time now and I might find her more amenable than when I first tried her out. One thing she does not have, however, is speed - and that would also be the main reason if I'd try to advocate the PeF for, say, operations.

?????

 

That sounds highly accurate for a tier 6 BB, compared to new mexico or normandie where the shells go every but the sodding ship your aiming at.

 

25mm will always be trash its only good at tier 4 and below at tier5 its questionable and tier 6 is taking miccy tier 7 then im wondering what drugs the designers of said ships were taking when they still thought armour profiles like that were still good.

 

Unless im missing something. Although with the izmail you might as well not bother with talking about armour.

That is MUCH better than New Mex 1.5 Sigma.

Nothing at all wrong with the Tirpitz, solid go to T8 premium, wasn't there another lower tier German BB that you now cannot buy in the shop?

well compared to the rest Tirpitz is less than stellar,

the other german prem BB is König Albert, which is a Kaiser at T3 with very low range

 

the gap of T8 BBs is fairly large actually

 

Monarch<Vanguard<Richelieu=Gascogne<Roma=Bismarck=Tirpitz<<<Kii<<Amagi<<Massachusetts<Vladivostok=Lenin=Alabama<North Carolina
