Hello captains!

I read it somewhere like a month ago but I don't know for sure if it was for real or not and when if true. Anybody has any info?

Regards!

And impero is also coming at somepoint as well, but littorio will arrive first however.

The line itself i have no clue really, but should of been in the game quite sometime ago in my opinion.

Not if Roma is representative of the line. WoNKy guns are not what's needed.

Wonky guns of Roma? Cant say that, its fun and good ship! I would say my favorite tier 8 ship (not that i have many t8 prem ships)
Many players think that her guns and armor arent so good and find the hard way that its ship that dont have to be underestimated!

Dude, the inconsistent guns are the only thing keeping Roma from being OP.

Prem ships are often different from silver ships.

The ship is fine, but the dispersion of the guns is frustrating. I tried out all the Tier VIII and IX Premiums in the last rental offer and I couldn't live with Roma's tendency to miss things 8k away showing broadside (the same way as I didn't like Vanguard's lack of punch). But, obvs, you may enjoy it where I don't.

Yes, it's a 1:1 copy of Roma called AL Littorio, with a special camo and prob a special captain, part of the collaboration with Azur Lane. 

 

Edit: special captain meaning special voiceover and portrait, no special skills.

I wouldn't be sure about that. Apparently Impero was a test ship for AL Littorio but seems like, in the end, WG went with just reskinned Roma. What will happen to Impero is now unknown. Maybe it will be released as premium ship or maybe it will be used as test ship for future Italian BB line, we can only speculate. But I wouldn't count on it getting out any time soon if at all.

If Impero was too powerful, then make it a T9 premium for coal.

Eh? What? No, why? If it's too powerful you nerf it. Premium means better economy and captain retraining (not that that bit is useful anymore) That's all.

I despair.

 

PS Unless sarcasm, in which case, well done.

No sarcasm, I wish for a nice Italian T9 coal BB, like the French had JB.

That's fine, me too (and the silver line). There's a difference between nice and too powerful though.

Powerful at T8 might be good for T9.

The problem is that WG sees Italian ships as a primary gimmick line with SAP.  Never mind that the players are indifferent on the subject of SAP and its efficacy, and that it is often too effective or ineffective in the same game... they're going with it. I dread to think what a Tier V BB would be like with SAP, it would make GC look balanced.

When we say, We want Italian BBs we get Russian cruisers

When we say, we want Italian BBs we get German carriers

When we say, we want Italian BBs we get American battleships

 

So yeah lets try this time NOT saying we want Italian BBs...

Unlikely, with the latest patch Impero has completely disappeared from the client and has been replaced by AL Littorio.

They will probs just add it in later on, with different stats and consumables. So probs another year or so of waiting they will just do a slava and/or indomitable.

Italian destroyers would be awesome as well. The Regia Marine had a lot of them, it would be cool to see them, maybe even with SAP or a better smoke... who knows....

You don't want to know what WG are thinking with the 2 Premium ones in testing the top tier 1 they are trying to gimmick into being a +7km detection torpedo boat with 4 km torps (Like that makes any sense especially with all the Radar CVs and Hydro), while the other has been in development hell for at least a year...

 

I'm almost at the point I don't want WG to add Italian ships cause you know they will slap stupid gimmicks on them that will either be a pain to balance or just not work or be fun to play...

SAP was likely main culprit although smoke probably didnt help either...

 

They should IMO:

Make it T9

Keep SAP

Make it with 27/30 plate

Heal and smoke interchange in same slot

Low dispersion but high sigma and longer reload

 

Then test it out

 

That way the Littorio-ish design with 16" can be a techtree T9 ship and 15" with changed stats a premium
