Yup. I actually bought it back!
And for the Tirpitz at 13:00. Yeah, that’s wallet warriors for you. Seen it countless times with Tirpitzes, Atagos, Atlantas, etc. People are lazy to grind but they want the high tier action, so they pay, and of course don’t know squat, they completely dodge the learning curve and wham, get hammered like shit.
Time to Colorado and jam some AC/DC.
Colorado……..Little Bad Battleship At Long Range…..Badasss At Short Range…..
Interesting vid. After all the bad feedback on this ship, its good to see it now has a place in the game. I got to try all the US BB’s in the 5.2 test server and I didn’t mind the Colorado (post buffs). I did all the BB’s as I was hanging to play the Iowa. Montana was not as good fun as Iowa for me either. At that time I was only up to the New York on my normal account, so a long ways to grind for those big bad boys.
A week or two after the tests finished on my normal account (upd 5.2) I got my New Mexico and was sorely disappointed. Out of the box it was a dog of a ship. Even fully upgraded as she is now, it isn’t as fun or good as the New York, and certainly less accurate. I call my NY old faithful and have kept it in my fleet.. Looking forward I expect to sell the Mex for the Colorado and still keep the NY..
Yup. The Colorado is definitely one of my favourite ships to shoot at when I’m in my Mogami. 5-10K damage HE salvos come pretty easily,
Did you sign up to project R? Love the videos btw they’ve helped me alot :)
*He LIKES the Colorado?????? It’s heresy I tell you! Heresy by thought, heresy by word , heresy by action! Burn the Witch burn him!!! (Sending large quantities of HE in your direction)*
I think the reason people complain about this ship (and to a lesser extent the Nagato) is that the teir 6 ships are so much more user friendly due to the high volume of fire. I don’t think it’s unfair to say that people who hate the Colorado don’t understand how to play BB.
edit: just saw you said the same thing.
I didn’t actually mind this ship too much, but it was very map dependent. It is the absolute worst when you play a map like Twin Sisters and their navy goes the other way around the islands.You’ll spend the entire game doing nothing.
Ummmm… Should I sell my beloved NM for Colorado?? 😛 thx in advance Business
Wow I was hesitant to go from my New Mex to the CO based off everyone complaining about it so much… kinda excited to farm up the credits for it now
That’s the RNG I’ve always wanted on a BB. How are the secondaries though becuase my nagato is fulled tricked for that and it is like a mogami tied to the gunnels. The HP with the super heals is a lot to like as well
Thank you for making this, she’s my favorite ship in the game. Most certainly better than the NC, jesus that ship is like dragging your ass through broken glass.
Yess! Thank you!
my god this is way better than pre-patch… had to grind thru the horrible mess of a dispersion back then
nice comentary about it – especialy about dispersion part and hidden stats and shit, u will never know how is the ship in the game and on the paper, now im really lookin forward to this ship to test it out but that deck armor and HE damage it takes looks kinda broken -_-
240p what is this crap?
So, What to you is the best BB In the USN line?
I was planning on skipping the CO all together and go straight to the NC with free XP. Now I am not sure. Oh and demo expert on the Myoko is insane. 20% fire chance, 5 or 6k salvos. Yummy.
Nice Overview, nice video Sir. Really good Damn Shots. Ure one of the best wows player in the World. also a sexy ship. nice work gg ~Jeep325
Don’t underestimate one of the Big 7!
Just wanted to say I really appreciate the videos. It helps me out.
Thank you! I always loved the Colorado, and I never understood the stigma against it. I, personally, have an 85k avg damage in it, and was pretty disappointed with the NC.
Too be honest, the Colorado is the same as the Nagato, not terms of ships, but playstyle. You really need to pick your targets and place your shots carefully.
Wargaming should include the Colorado’s sister West Virginia in her 1944 form. Aside from her slow speed she’s basically a tier 8 level including some of the best AA armament.
Finally a vid I can watch before work… lol.
I agree, the North Carolina in its current state, is an awful BB compared to its counter-parts. However, I believe the New Mexico is a better BB than the Colorado. I’ve taken full broadsides from them with a 45 degree angle on the hull and received minimum damage while firing all my guns giving back 10x as much damage. But, I guess it comes down to personal preference. However, you mentioned it being comparable to that of the Warspite…and I see that now as I own one myself. Thanks for the insight on that.
I loved the Colorado. Now I have this shitty NC.
i love your intros. they really set the tone for the videos keep it up and when i read the title of the vid i couldn’t wait for the amount of hate you were gonna put on the ship… oh wait WHAT???
I might play the colorado back again. By the way business , you said this is the 2nd best USN BB . So what’s the best in your opinion ? The Iowa or the Montana ?
I am glad of this video..now i tell why..i Have on my NA server (I am from EU when i start play WoWS i did not take EU CLient so i stop playing on NA server but progress i made there is only with US BB) Montana,Iowa,NC and Colorado… i have playing Colorado before changes when he was *The Worst ever* and i was thinking to pass him transfer free xp and go for NC…but i decide to play thru and i did..i will tell this about Colorado when i unlock NC i was sorry for that because NC was very big disappointment. In Colorado i just recked everyone,best armor of all ships deadly Brawler even in higer Tiers battles i do it nice results,fantastic ship..ok low HP and speed is minus for him but AA is amazing with C hull and Captais skill 4 20% of range you can reckt Planes ….In my opinion Colorado and Iowa are best US BBs! Sorry for my english it is not my native language! And you said Armor is better on NC ohh it is not just it is not even in stats is worst also in game!
Colorado is much more effective with AA Guns Mod 2 instead of the Artillery Plotting room. With this mod plus captain AA perks you can get up to a 77 AA rating and at this Tier it chews through aircraft.
In essence, the Colorado is a brawler despite its low HP pool. It has really good armor, and can brawl like a champ against other BB’s if you use your angles correctly.
Get in close and brawl (~10-14KM). If you sit back and try to snipe with this ship you will be negating it’s good armor due to plunging fire and will be getting frustrated.
After closed beta I gave up on the USN line since I really didn’t like this ship, but it looks so much better now! Gonna have to get my grind back on :P
woohoo sub 300+ views group!
So Wargaming actually made the Colorado accurate in a patch? When i played this ship several months ago it was absolutely atrocious. I felt i was more accurate in the Kawachi! Looking at my average damage stats i have 73k damage with the New Mexico and 53k with the Colorado. Terrible!
I have to disagree with you on the North Carolina. I think its a beast of a ship. That ship is so strong when you go in bow first. Its like a mini Yamato. In a lot of games i only fire the two front turrets and i do tremendous damage.
Nice, good to see Colorado is better now. I’ve also been considering buying her again to do another video on, see how she is now. After watching this, I definitely think I need to do just that
Do you feel that the ship is more accurate then nagato?
Yay just when I’m grinding this ship.
