I just saw these on the official WoWs facebook page and twitter, but no info other than the pictures and historical data. What will be different than from Nagato? Worse AA? Better secondaries? who knows. 

In case you missed the pictures

There are already two topics about this in the gameplay section. TL;DR on current speculation: stock Nagato at t6.

Only 2 torps per broadside, with terrible arc and weak damage and speed, yeah that's a gimmick if I see one.

 

But, with tier 6, 26 knots speed and guns that are just as good as Bayern's, it should be alright premium. Not the strongest one but it doesn't need to be.

 

Btw, they are saying Nagato will lose her stock hull so will Amagi. Also, next patch is 0.6.0 so I wonder what will the big game-changing feature it will bring.

So, speculation machine: first, never-in-game Kaiser's stock hull became a tier lower premium. Now, same with Nagato and maybe even with Amagi. And stock hull of Kongou also removed. You hear that?? It's the sound of money for WG

 

WG, you are diabolical *insert Simpsons meme here*

In tier 7 too. I'm not sure about having 10 410mm guns on tier 7. She's obviously gonna be in her BC form so no AA, no armor, no TDS, and with torps.

If she gets the same shells as Amagi, that would be way too strong.

Well I guess the Type 88 shell , same as the stock ship. 

 

Now I'm hyped!

OK, having seen the stats, and even if the torps are just a gimmick, this is awesome. Also, the torps reload faster than the guns... and their range is approx. what your secondary range would be with the standard secondary build, so more power for brawling.

 

And if they do the same to Amagi I'm expecting the same for Fuso (arguably the worst offender for "gameplay comfort" stock). Yamashiro T5, stock Fuso with torps. Damn... I'm gonna end up buying all of these aren't I... :child:

They even picked the name from the suggestion? That is SOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!! Hopefully we'll see her soon!

 

Might also end up buying all of these! !

I see Mutsu as quite a solid T6 Premium BB, but Stock Amagi at T7? Prolly the weakest T7 BB of them all, by quite a bit. I'mean,  AA DPS of 8/32/10? CV's will rejoice!

No! Cause she's fast as a lightning! How cares about these CVs...?

 

Honestly - will look for Russian and US cruisers for cover and all good!

So, knifefighting in tier 6 between BBs also going down the drain,... yey :hiding:

 

Well... Are you seriously avoiding knife fights on T7 because you'll find Scharnies? Torps are a nice gimmick but that shouldn't stop you. I would be more afraid ppl mistake her for a sniper because of the range.

Under tiered IJN BB don't inspire me to open my wallet again. As much as I want an IJN Prem BB.

 

So USN Prem BB keep their tier and get free P2W buffs but IJN BB are to be fed to us in A Hull configuration with broken MM :sceptic:

I avoid knife fights with KM BBs yes, though I have no problem charging Nagatos, NorCals and even Iowas in my Lolorado,

but it seems I can now start to remove  IJN BBs from the list, especially for my New Mex
