A compilation of my funny moments, memes and a summary of my thoughts on the Tier 5 Italian Battleship: Andrea Doria
My new favorite ship in the game. Used it in the tier 5 1v1 ranked and even with my poor playing only lost one game with it. So glad we got another line of “brawling” bbs. At least that’s how I use them.
You lost against a California?
@siriusgroza if my memory serves me well it was, about 7 hours ago?
Yeah I heard a lot of skepticism too, but went into a fight and killed several dds in first battle! They did not have a chance… full health Mahan yoloing on me was melted in seconds, receiving 1500 to 1900 hits
Only people with massive IQ or the ones like myself who have been using/wanting secondaries ships from the beginning and have suffered and enjoyed every stage they’ve gone through can understand how busted these ships can be in the right hands, can’t wait to get her myself
Its much more interesting than the PC version of the Italian BBs. On PC we have only the Napoli and Guiseppe Verdi as secondary ships and they are inacurate as hell and cost coal our dubloons…..
Legends has quite a few things better done than PC. Commanders are the big ones… really wish we had a variant of Legends commanders on PC. PC Commanders all suffer from mostly bland skill choices, and having to spend doubloons or commander experience to reset the entire tree just to make one or two different selections is fucking retarded.
@Shawn Christensen Thats also true. Really frustrating…
Agree, the only thing that is good without any secondary upgrades on pc is basically just German bb and bc (and hopefully wg won’t release the schlieffen in legends) because that would pretty much ruin people’s day
Having a barrel of fun with these ships. I have the same set up except I’m running the 6 heals instead of PM, the HP is just too damn low IMO.
Question for ya’ll. When I look at Italian BBs, it states they’re in “Early Access”. Does that mean they will be unlocked normally such as unlocking Alighieri straight from Giussano instead of doing special missions later on?
Yeah, Day one of the next update you’ll be able to grind the italian battleships like any other tech tree line
You should try a full secondary build on the Nassau. insane range and reload for a Tier III battleship. I have on it over 7.5km range and a 2.9sec reload
I’ll have to see what I can do
Nassau also has some AP secondaries which can shred broadside targets
Tbh, even as a bb captain, the SAP from their secondaries actually scare me a bit.
I only have the tier 4 but I thought having great firing angles was going to be a theme with the Italian BBs…guess not, disappointingly.
THANK YOU. Main battery SAP is imho way worse than getting secondary SAP.
God, i hope they dont change it, or watch, cause if they do and suddenly everyone will complain it was actually a nerf.
Fun fact: I’m using AL Littorio (mostly because I’m a weeb, love and play Azur Lane) but Im doing like a hybrid build. It’s working for me and I like it. I have AL Littorio as the commander and AL Scharnhorst for alittle more accuracy and Hipper for secondaries while having the secondary mod as well. I believe I get the secondaries to about 4.6-4.8. I to check again. Still funny when 2 dds rush me and get killed by them. 🤣
While the range on the Italian secondaries aren’t that good they seem much more affective than the German secondaries.
Only took me one game in the Dante to realize how awesome SAPs are after I sank 6 ships in one game with them…and repeated that again in another.
To be honest, I wish Bismarck’s secondaries functioned like what is shown in this video with Andrea Doria. Bismarck’s designers sacrificed Dual-Purpose functionality on Bismarck/Tirpitz so that they would be devastating anti-destroyer and cruiser cannons. Ultimately turned out to be their downfall in real life, but with Bismarck only having 8 cannons compared to most of the capital ships, powerful secondaries would make up the difference.
Good video yet again! I know this it not relevant, but would be able to do a video on the Albemarle as I’ve just acquired this ship and would love to see how you play and build this ship
I have Haruna and Hipper both nearly fully upgraded cuz I’ve always wanted a good secondary ship, glad it’s finally paying off
Didn’t know the secondary’s were that good, switched to a secondary build and I’m getting much better results
i do really hope they bring a historical dispersion build BB captain for the Italians now there is a full tech tree line within the next update.
The real wonder was the destroyer stating spotted long enough to die to secondaries
I used this ship in arena and it was amazing
