I guess BBs still have not been buffed enough to compensate the sheer stupidity of the average BB player? Sucks...

Hi all,

It is HMS "Vanguard"! :)

 

I knew it it would be Tier X... it was the last RN BB...

Hmm.  Low HP and 2 x heal, interesting. To many smoke ship,  need for a balance..    I remember G Kurfüst was low HP before release,  and last moment receive Hp buff.

Even with destroyers being the bane of my battleship career, radar is just OP on a BB, no from me.

 

On another note, what the hell is this tier X they've conjured up? It looks like HMS Vanguard but 15" guns would bounce all day? They look to be bigger to me too, so they've designed their own ship?

Vanguard is about as far away from being T10 material as Krasny Krym is from being a good ship...

That's not a Lion, since the drawings of HMS Lion had 3x3 turrets and not the depicted 4x2. And if you look at the stern and the rear superstructure you'll notice that it is identical to the Vanguard.

It does look like Vanguard but Vanguard was based on the Lion design using old 15" guns - hopefully this will be as you say, a Lion with big guns. HP not very good for Tier 10 - not much better than Hood!

they are actually 18"guns
they would of made the vanguard a tier 8 premuim if it had 15" guns

I hope radar doesn't make it through the testing phase, to be honest. It seems everything has access t oit these days. But for a CA to reliably use radar against a DD (at least in some scenarios) it has to take quite the risk to do so. BBs have the armour to neglect or negate that risk, and will be quite overpowered in the current meta.

Hi all,

I see... something similar to what was done with "Gneisenau" / "Scharnhorst" ...

 

 

 

Vanguard is about as far away from being T10 material as Krasny Krym is from being a good ship...

 

Perhaps the WG uses the gun changing mechanics (i.e. please see above)... :hiding:

Looks like a bastardized vanguard. Different turrets.

Vanguard was a Lion class BB cobbled together quickly with the guns they had available so any T10 based on the Lion design will end up looking like Vanguard.

 

 

Edit: rough guess is that the T9 will be a 9 x 16" design with maybe the true Vanguard at T8?

Thats the end of me spending money on this game. WG have no clue balance wise.

A part of me (and rather significant i must say) is really delighted at the perspective of so much schadenfreude.

 

And the ship looks awesome.

I am guessing the KGV to be the T8 as its lackluster guns would balance out the radar
