Caracciolo is at the same Tier as Sinop

Just let that sink in for a moment.... :Smile_teethhappy::Smile_teethhappy:

 

On a more serious note: That Ship is bad. 8 guns with a long reload and bad dispersion... in fact, the dispersion is so bad even deadeye cant fix it.

Really, how is this an upgrade to Andrea Doria (that one I liked)?

Sinop can hardly be  the benchmark, unless you are a fan of powercreep...

 

On the other hand WG was informed about the problem with the guns after the first devblog that showed the ships stats.

I know... it just baffeled my mind (again) since I havent played T7 for quite some time. 

 

Which ship do you mean? Sinop or Cara? They both have "problems with the guns"... just on the opposite spectrum in terms of performance.

Hi all,

I unlocked the Tier VII Italian BB "Francesco Caracciolo" yesterday... I took her for a test ride in CoOp... first 5 salvos I didn't hit anything at 10+ km ranges (really = 0 hits)... the game ended with my gun accuracy at 20%... I must confess that i didn't have similar experience lately... :Smile_hiding:

I meant the Carracciolo. 8 guns with 1.6 Sigma is just bad. We have Nagato and Colorado with the same number of guns, but bigger, and better Sigma and base dispersion and they are not too strong either.

So its basically another Free-XP to T10 Line? :cap_fainting:

I would not go that far. But it is unlikely that she will played a lot in the current state. Just a waste of manhours of the design team, unless WG changes something.

I havent checked the stats, but if the T8 is a Roma clone with SAP, I could make it work. But I assume thats not the case...

Player one battle with carpaccio cappuccino yesterday. It’s guns are very underwhelming and it is as fun as Oklahoma. I guess that’s what free means.

The Vittorio Veneto also has much worse concealment than Roma. In other words, it has to pay dearly for its gimmicks (SAP, smoke).

 

Kind of funny, isn't it, that it's exactly the same ship model but they have different concealment?

Yes, when I saw that they gave her worse concealment I was furious, it is the single best asset of Roma in my opinion.

Weeeeeeell. If the VT had Roma's concealment, who would buy Roma? (unless they have specific sentimental or other reasons to get the ship) I mean... no one gets Roma for the guns. You get it for the armor model and the concealment, so if you give those out for "free", then why buy the premium?

 

I am not even being hypothetical here, as this was precisely my thought process. The only Italian BB I was interested in was the VT, precisely as a free Roma substitute.

The Vittorio Veneto

As I have not seen what "prices" are in pasta party 2: Is she free to get? Else her permacamo would be even more of a waste, and buying credits for the 4k tokens seems to be the better idea.

Can't argue with that :Smile_hiding:

Romas guns are not bad. They have the highest penetration of all 380mm guns in game. Unfortunately, that can lead to a lot of overpens with the wrong target selection.

Wow, that sucks. But keep this topic alive. Maybe the devs will get around to fixing the sigma issues.

Apparently, my Capuccino is broken. Map was Shards, did around 40k with SAP to a bow-in Lion at around 10 km. Rest of the fight was at comfortable distances, not more than 13 - 14 km. 10 point captain without Deadeye.

Most permacamos need you to play hundreds of battles to pay for themselves and I don't think it would be any different regarding pepperoni ones.

I'm pretty sure they will get buffs. After all, the fatty US line got buffs quite promptly, probably because the spreadsheet showed that not enough people were playing them.

 

The other option, if you want to put on the conspiracy theory hat, is that they will stay shite in order to milk people of FXP pushing up to the supposedly decent tier 10 ship. But, personally, I have trouble believing that this kind of strategy would be a good business decision (sinking so many man hours into art assets, etc. just to milk some extra fxp/money). So I don't subscribe to that particular theory.
