She is just the best Tier III BB..

 

Yeah and T3 BB are crap :cap_yes: Her dmg per match isn't that far off...imo it's more likely that those who bought her have better situational awareness and aiming skills than your typical t3 pleb (who will - let's face it- typically sail a BB).

 

I'd pick a Bogatyr any day if I wanted to seal club at t3.

I thought they intended to remove Koenig Albert some months ago, but it didn't happen.It's not a monster in the tier either as a bit of power creep has happened with the RN BB's and the quite effective Pan Asia DD's.

Bit surprised about Atlanta, it's far from overpowered and a lot of fun for people nuts enough to learn how to play her.

 

Admiral Makarov I've never seen in the game, but it looks a bit like a Soviet Nurnburg and I guess it will play quite like Budyonny but with 2 rear and 1 front turret, if it's got a fast reload it could be fun. It's got tin armour plating so will probably play a lot like her silver ship peers in the RU tree.

Even better, it is the Nürnberg, after it's been ceded by the Soviets at the end of WW2. It's a C-hull Nürnberg with half of the torpedoes removed, and the AA-suite beefed (in the midrange department, at the expense of the short-range). And a better rudder shift. Doesn't get the Murmansk-treatment, so seems to get the same " 150 mm Spr.Gr. L/4.4 Kz." HE grenades that the Germans do get.

Looked her up, my thoughts exactly - more citadel hits! :Smile_trollface:

Fair enough, looks interesting then as I really liked the Nurnburg in a masochistic way, fun ship, but a real citadel magnet :cap_viking:

Don't worry about not being able to buy the König Albert. Albany's there again to save the day.

Speaking of, when will she be avalable again, i missed her when the code was up long ago, and she would make a great companion to St. Louie in my collection. :cap_cool:

HOLD IT . . . 

 

Under the heading "Other Improvements and Fixes" I can see no sign of the lovely Dasha in her elf costume appearing on the container ship.

That has GOT to be an improvement, hasn't it?

 

Serious oversight there WG . .  serious :Smile_facepalm:

It's a tier higher, but it clubs way better than the Prince Albert. It even out-clubs the Nikolai... and it's free!

Also she's currently not in the shop so she might be removed for good.

 

Both Fat Albert and Atlanta are in the shop on EU. Just checked.

So Lolanta is also going to be removed, why :Smile_amazed:

 

Only from the tech tree, availability in the shop will not be changed.

I think that WG wants to normalize tech tree offers across the servers, since NA and ASIA are also getting large changes to available tech tree ships. NA alone is getting 28 ships unlocked for sale, ASIA 25.

It's just that we have both the Albert and the Atlanta in the tech tree.

If it's true, then I praise my luck of getting the Atlanta at the Black Friday Bullsh*ttery, without the inflated bundles, just the ship with a good price tag. Instead of pointless copy-pastes and OP moneyprinters (I mean for WG), in my "very own, very speshul" WoWs the perfect premium is something like the Atlanta. Different, hilariously fun with a good enough skillcap, without the autowin-button.

As for KA, personally I find her biggest strong point in the fact that in T3, it's very hard to shoot her into pieces. I mean, if the other guy is sitting in a Weymouth, possibly just experiencing the game in his first few matches, yeah... good luck with that. But even against HE, she is rather resilient. But other that that, I don't know, maybe I was thought a bit more into her after all the hype. On the other hand, it was a good while ago when I played the classic T3 BBs, so not that I have a good enough base to compare.
