PT 0.9.9, changes to test ships

Japanese battleship Hizen, Tier IX

  • Main battery guns reload time increased from 30 to 38 s;

IX Paolo Emilio:

  • Bonus to the ship's maximum speed from the "Emergency Engine Power" consumable is reduced from 25% to 20%.

That looks like sledge hammer balancing to Hizen....

Hizen went from looking a little too powerful to having worse DPM and accuracy then the Izumo.

 

Nice:cap_like:

 

Edit:

Worse dpm and Sigma then the Amagi also....:cap_like:

A slight change, no problem. This seems a bit much.

The guns seem weaker than Izumos (less speed, less damage, much less Sigma).

yeah agreed, tho i was expecting it since they announced the new ships. I was like:"they are going to nerf the reload for sure, it can't stay 30s".

I expected sigma nerf more than reload nerf. But 38 s reload is silly.

 

You now get a BB that has likely similar armour to Izumo, worse turret layout, worse shell performance, way worse accuracy and not even any significant dpm edge, because for 4/3 the guns you almost get as much more reload. Makes Hizen basically an Izumo for people who can't aim.

Actually .... even with 38sec reload Hizen has better DPM than Izumo.

 

Nerf was expected but WG is again showing their art of "fine tuning"

Argh, you're right!

 

Still worse than Amagi though!

To be exact, the base AP dpm is 241.6k to 232.2k.

Which is 252k.

 

But yes, looking at dpm numbers and then at the accuracy and shell performance of the Hizen...

I just Hate any reload over 30's I don't play Soviet BB's till T9 and the reload booster, so this offering and the US things that are iminent will just be so much clutter to me,  but I do have the patience of a Wasp and sitting watching targets come and go whilst I scratch my  backside has no appeal to me at all whatsoever.

More Paolo Emillio nerfs wonder why)))).

But hey if speaking of Paolo and its old play style how about you revive soviet bias by bringing back the original soviet bias ship? Have you ever wondered buffing that piece of turd called KHABAROVSK? Well now it is your chance.Remove all those 50 mm plates,remove the penetration received from 283 mm guns and above,reduce rudder shift to 6 seconds,remove smoke and replaced with neustrashimy type HEAL. Increase range to 12.6 km, and GIVE IT SAP, with 38 mm of armor penetration and 3200 max alpha( do not forget to remove AP).

It would be a bit excessive but nowadays only a few unicums and die hard fans play her still so overall stats are not down the drain yet. Just imagine if Tirpitz crew got their "competent" hands on her:cap_haloween:  But I guess WG needs her to respond to any soviet bias accusations with "but Kaba..."

Where do you get this sigma value from?

Hizen with 38 seconds reload might be "balanced" but the ship is entirely boring to play that way, balanced doesnt mean fun and I dont want another lazy Yamato preliminary, at least make the actual Yamato preliminary that had one barrel short instead of a bunch of designs that were rejected, downside the guns to the 41 cm/45 3rd Year Type naval gun (Nagato and Amagi) and pretend the Japanese build one as a testing for the Yamato class or something.

 

Also can you stop nerfing Paolo Emilio? a YOLO DD was already raising eyebrows but a YOLO DD that basically gets destroyed before she can do anything is simply a bad destroyer because you cannot even try YOLO as she was designed to do, its like SAP that was "balanced" into irrelevance.

So hizen gets slapped and polo ball gets kicked around again lol.

Ill just stick to georgia and monarch 30+ reloads are boring as hell and can really gimp you.

 

Not too mention rng which means you will very rarely ever get all shells on target and pen.

Hizen sounds very boring now.

I would prefer it as a tier x coal ship with unnerfed reload.

I think we'd just like a big fast destroyer with HE/AP and a speed boost. She could have a choice of traditional long-range slow Italian torps or fast YOLO ones, and perhaps a smoke screen capability. That would be nice. Make it available for 1,000,000 Free XP.

Hizen armour scheme is crazy! nice extended rear belt for kiting but 25mm deck????!!

Must be a mistake?

Maybe it's a version of the "glass cannon" BBs, like Champagne and Slava, but with a thin deck instead of thin bow/stern? Seems unlikely though.
