I'm aware that Monarch is at the far end in WR of T8 BB's but I revisited her recently and love her to bits in the current meta. Every camping deadeyer is burning down. Her range is still criminally low but at least it forces you to stay reasonably close to the action and be useful :Smile_teethhappy:

I just wish her dispersion wasn't so wonky, otherwise i could get used to her quickly.

But i still like her even if i struggled to stay above 50% WR lol.

a bit of deadeye helps with that, the AP works remarkably good with it

True, just wish she didn't need deadeye really as monarch is pretty good flanker and ambush BB. Although i guess at bottom tier she gets relegated too 2nd line support kinda hard.

I love Monarchs since they pose little threat and they burn nicely.

How can you struggle to get close with 11,5 km concealment? It's glorious :cap_win:

deadeye has really improved the Dunkerque as well, having lots of fun in her even when the inevitable bottom tiering happens

Yes it's coop but that means the Reds can generally hit what they aim at.....

What I meant is, Monarch does her damage gradually and she has excellent heal. But imo she cannot push very strongly, so you are more dependent on your team. She is a strong contributor, but will not easily carry her flank independently.

So, if your team has not had their brains eaten away by glue, she can do very well. If they are licking da windows, she can put on a strong defence, but will not, in my experience, carry the game.

Well, but i did? :Smile-_tongue: Yes, i couldnt push because i was facing a Musashi, amongst other things. 460mm guns will just shred a Monarch to pieces, so i started to kite away. In the end, we were 3 vs 6 (or maybe 4 vs 6 im not 100% sure anymore).

shot-20_04.14_23_27.18-0003.thumb.jpg.046856fb91197c740a9ffecd46402774.jpg

 

Prior to that, Musashi and Amalfi died in B cap, but i dont remember if we also lost a ship in between or not. I was kiting away from A/B to B/C into C, while enemies pushed straight into B. I shot them, while my DDs torped them. Then they got pushed by the enemies south of B/C, as you see my DDs were basicly stuck beteen Neptune/Haru/Massa. Luckily i got the Neptune, and my DDs could run away into B. Also the enemy DDs were very stupid by smoking up and not spotting our Kiev, because they would easily outspot him. So then shima killed Aki, and we killed Haru together after that. Before that, the Massa was pushing into me, so i started kiting again. Since he couldnt keep it up, he ran away, which definetely lost him the game (dunno why he did that really, was a hurricane clan player). Maybe he was hoping he win by points/time, but eventually he still died before the end.

She can, If You use AP + Your superior concelement close to cap and dispertion will say YES to ex. spotted Mino :-P.  But most the time, she just can't hit anything properly, becouse huge vertical dispertion. Her AP penetration is so low too, than almost perfectly broadside ex. Montana on 8-10 km will only crush those shells ..
