Don't buy the Viribus unitis unless they nerf it to tier 4!

This ship is terrible against tier VI, never mind the uselessness against tier 7. This ship needs to be either:

- Buffed into usefullness (usefull AA, better HP pool. I mean, I do not see any way of "getting gud" in it due to lack of speed/HP/AA)

- reduced to tier IV (where it belongs with the current performance)

- Refunded. This is not worth the money I spent on it.

 

It's trash as it is now.

Played a few more rounds hoping the ship could improve. Nope.

 

Can't stand up to any BB tier 5 and above. Even crousers laugh at my ship. Carriers get all misty eyed at the damage farimg to be done. My teammates downvote my reputation for being effectivly one ship short. It's so insanely stupid to put this tub in tier 5.

In short:

- you are not fast enough to angle your already weak armour.

- you are too slow to play any meaningfull tactics

- the guns woun't scare a tier 1 cruiser

- the HP pool is tier 3 worthy, not tier 5

- the accuracy of said guns is abysmal

- the penetration of said guns is laughable (ran into a half dead burning bayern while I was at full health. Guess who won and who still had roughly half health without using a repair.)

 

THIS SHIP IS THE WORST SHIP EVER!

i am an average player (50% w/l), but this piece of crap won't perform in any decent manner.

I saw how this thing behaves and reminded me of Prinz Eitel Garbage.  However on the statement "THIS SHIP IS THE WORST SHIP EVER!" - well Genova would like a word on that .

Well, compare to Konig Albert at Tier 3. VU is tier 4. Genova can be good in tier 5-6. Not tier 7 though, unless you can stay in 2nd row aiding other duels.

That's Genova, really, and it's quite good considering she's a WW1 design.

Did it truly take you this long to realize this fact? Should have realized this without having to buy her first..

I don't regret the money I spent on Viribus Unitus, Yahagi or Genova in fact, I quite like the VU, OK she prbly needs an AA buff, the other two definitely need some work and mainly in the area of survivability, unfortunately just adding more HP is almost definitely not going to be enough. Historical accuracy in naval architecture in the game is OK but as has been pointed out previously this isn't an all out naval simulator so the Dev's should know enough by now to know when to step away from that a bit to support playability, in addition the way ships are tested currently doesn't seem to help much either.

Viribus Unitis. 

With United Forces”

Cost :

Firstly, Viribus is a fine looking ship, beautifully, modelled and rendered, in game, fantastic attention to detail.

The guns are not the issue:-

The issue is speed, movement, and the AA making it useless for Random.

 

Bottom Line:-

Is it worth 18 euros ?

If you want to grind XP and coin you will not find a better

“ Farmer “ for the “ Geld “ just do the farming in co-op.

 

Yes its worth it for " Farming " as soon as you get a 19pt Captain, then you get the elite Captain Points to farm as well.

 

Average Low impact Bot game in co-op +2 kills

Although the official line is that VU only had 4 of the Skoda 7cm dual purpose AA versions fitted on her upper main turret tops, she is also fitted with another 12 x 7cm weapons, these were unfortunately not DP weapons in RL, but, the AA fits for Konig and Iron Duke, in the same tier, aren't strictly historical either, and T5 does seem to be for ships coming out of WW1 into the inter-war years so allowing VU to have the additional 12 x 7cm as AA versions would seem not to be beyond the bounds of possibility. Since she already has an AA rating of 8 with 4 weapons adding another 12 would mean 16 weapons and maybe an AA rating of around 24 - 32 which might bring her to some degree of AA parity with her other T5 cousins? There's also the added bonus that those additional 12 weapons are already represented on the ship model, if not yet in the ships stats.
