It appears that Shikishima will be for 32k steel.

Steel is pretty much useless at this point if you already own a stalingrad and maybe a bourgogne. Somers is an US shimakaze offers nothing new and is boring to play. 

32k for a worse yamato? Give me PAOLO EMILIO already, an interesting ship with a different play style than most destroyers, fun to play and gorgeous to look at, not this big box with useless guns and pew pew secondary meme, i get burned down.

Or at least give the ability to acquire other rare/difficult goods to obtain with steel:camouflages/flags with great bonuses, rare but expensive premium ships,doubloons,research points but no just keep giving people useless junk aka shitishima. SIGH...at least they could have added H-44.

Well, you can always convert to coal... sounds like we are in a similar position and recycling the steel into coal sounds more tempting with every day passing. Almost as if WG wants us to do it...

 

Seriously, 32.000 steel transforms into 320.000 coal. Now check that the coal BBs are priced at and think about it.

32K steel for a boring over-pen king ship?  :cap_haloween:

It should be 260K coal, instead of steel. :cap_hmm:

why get this if u have yamato? would not even pay 21K steel for it.

Bigger caliber at long range could be better for sniping and this ship just a trash for brawling. :cap_like:

If you try to brawl at mid or close range by Shishima, they eat you alive. :fish_viking:

yamato can do what this ship can in distance, plus like u said it is very boring...unless they do secondary buff or something.

Shikishima has better dispersion and penetration with less reload time so it could be better sniper than Yamato but in the summary it's really boring for me, too :cap_like:

A whole lot of 30 mm more at 20 km. Penetrative power of the 51 cm/45 is downscaled. And while she does have better dispersion, she also has 3 lottery tickets less per salvo, and the improvement in dispersion isn't as big as moving from Iowa to Georgia.

 

 

In her current state, for 32k Steel? No thanks.

This ship have serious issues. The dispersion is really random, and for some reason the shells shatter a lot. I saw a lot of CC playing it and playing in different ways. And any of them make it work. Compare this to Thunderer, Ohio, Georgia, Jean Bart... The secondary buff helps to compensate a little the slow turret traverse if some small ship yolo you. But its not OK that when u finally hit a shell it shatters or it over-pens. This needs BUFFS.

32k Steel?

3.2k steel would be ok-ish i guess, but 32k?
