  1. Compared to the Lenin this ship is weak in my opinion, but I think some people can make her work, but she is not for the avreage joe.

  2. Hey SeaLord, I’m a relatively new player to Wows. I’ve follows your advice, and I’ve just finished grinding the USN BB line, I’ve almost got the Yamato and I want to start grinding the British BB line. Do you have any tips on how to grind that line? Keep up the great vids, I love your content!

    • @Steve Kutznekov even at 15km, if the enemy DD doesn’t pay attention you can easil, chunk it for 10-15k if you are in the high tier range

    • @tim lenzke You are right but if the enemy dd is good, you shouldn’t try to shoot at it above 15km

    • The monarch is very underwhelming but before & beyond that I would call them overpowered. I average ≈90k in the KGV & over 100k in the lion & conqueror. My best advice would be don’t sleep on the AP if given broadside. A lot of people assume you’ll only spam HE and will willingly show you broadside but conqueror AP is no slouch, especially with 12 guns. She is also very tanky if angled right and you have time to get those super heals off, meaning you can actually push if that’s what the team needs at that moment. My highest potential damage in the game came in the conqueror at ≈6 mil

    • PS sorry for the long response lol

    • Thanks guys for the advice! I’ll keep this in mind while I grind the line 🙂

  3. You’re right, SLM! Come to think of it, I believe I’ve come across the Borodino about three time since it came out myself.

  4. 12:26 They always seem to be top tier when I play tier 6.

  5. I play all the Russian BB line from T7 and up. Tech line and premium. My favorite by far is my Lenin. However… the Vladivostok is way under rated. The guns are single pixel accurate and has stronk Stalinium armor.

  6. Mech Franka T. Lieu

    6 guns only , that joke seems a bit old .. well at least this BB had all 6 ( heavy hitting ) guns forward in super firing position, the ship do not need to turn to uncover the whole barrage of 6 guns as the other 6 guns BB are , or even many of the 6 guns cruisers

  7. its pretty damn good in its tier. Uptiers makes it suffer a lot, but it does decent when it has islands to retreat behind

  8. Borodinos were produced in larger numbers, but they were never going to be as popular as the Andromeda class. Renaming them as Dreadnaughts for the 2202 reboot did not seem to help.

  9. Got it for Christmas and today i had a game with it. I like the guns, playing from like 13-14 km has decent dispersion and nose in is taking low damage. Radar is cool but short, i put it for a good use to check for dds on my flags since its very long a juicy target for a broadside torps. I like it has the normal repair party since when being shot from long distance i get a single fire which can extinguish multiple times, so no need for the usual fast repair. Tonight I will test it more. I have a Lenin as well and they are very different BBs in my opinion. Thank you for the video! 🙂

    • radar? you mean hydro?

    • I really mean radar. I get information for the ship itself, not the torps launched. Most of the dds have 12 or less torp range, so you can reliably check if there is a dds, if there is such, most probably there arw torps coming your way. It’s good for getting info for enemy ships in general – being dds, ships behind islands or during cyclone.

    • @Lester It has radar

  10. I didn’t know this ship existed until I got it in a Christmas container. Looks like a mini Vlad with radar.

  11. Russian ships being op, I’m shocked.

  12. “How often are t8 ships top tier?’ Every time I play t6.

  13. I just picked this ship up a few days ago. The first time I seen it I was not really interested, but I decided to give it a chance (since I had a coupon) and I’m glad I did. Like Sea Lord said you don’t see them much so I like that, and while her armor isn’t Vladivostok’s it is good enough to hold her own when bow tanking, but the real selling point for me was the guns, 31 second reload vs the standard 33 second of other Russian BB’s and unlike other Russian BB’s it actually has pretty good dispersion. Forget that you even have secondaries and if you get a secondary kill go and buy a lottery ticket. Speed is okay but she handles like the Titanic when turning. AA, you have some but you’re certainly not a no fly zone. The Radar is a nice bonus too, but she needs to be a team player to excel with it, her radar has great range but you will only get one salvo off once it is deployed. I would not say this ship is OP, but she is quite fun in the right circumstances.

  14. I suppose that those who own Lenin simply do not need another T8 BB.

  15. One thing you didn’t mention is that the bow on this thing is so long that most of the time, if she can pen around your icebreaker, Yamato/Musashi and Shikishima cannot citadel you. They can get full pens, but none of them have enough pen to reach the citadel before the shell blows

  16. The situation you found yourself in at the end made me realize how powerful will to rebuild it

  17. Love the borodino, tight dispersion, great maneuverability, but just watch your broadsides.

  18. The only problem is how badly this thing get brutally uptiered. Like so many Tier VIII Premiums, they’re great at their tier and owned when they’re bottom tier.

  19. I played it when it came out and I still like it, but I prefer cruisers mostly since the game at tier 8 and up is misserable for any battleship
