  1. Played 4 games in here …. 2 krakens and avg of 3 kills a game 150k dmg. LOVE HER

  2. St. Vincent is simply amazing BB. One of the best in the game.

    Ps. Check build with Super Heavy AP Shells and You will see citadel fiesta.

  3. My 3rd game in her I broke my damage record with 328k damage and i did it with a full secondary build they are very accurate and helpful with burning when im close in using my AP too bad it was a loss you know how MM is

  4. The AA is actually really good. The problem is that it’s mostly located on the back half of the ship with the dual/octuple mounts and the mounts themselves are incredibly weak. And being such a fast ship for it’s size… it encourages people to “accidentally” smash all your AA when they don’t lead enough. The same thing happens with the Duncan. It can get so bad that you lose over half your AA in an alarmingly short time if certain things are shooting you.

  5. I think this ship will be the reason why people will stop playing the Bourgogne…it’s in the tech tree and doesn’t cost steel, concealment is better, reload with the build Mountbatten has is just 2 seconds more than the Bourgogne, better guns, armor I think is similar but this gets access to zombie heal, doesn’t get reload booster but the torps and Def AA more than make up for it and with speed boost, it can reach a faster speed than Bourgogne to get to the flanks and with better concealment as well….RIP Bourgogne

    • Rasmus Dyhr Frederiksen

      St. Vincent has short fuse time? So more citadels with Bourgogne guns?

    • St Vincent’s armor is not kind of the same as bourgognes, its significantly worse.

      Def AA and torps don’t come close to main battery reload booster on 12x380mm guns, maybe you could argue the superheal does but not with a 25mm bow at t10.

      Now St Vincent does get better overmatch but the French 380s get some ridiculous shell speed and arcs and will pick up big hits where some slower 406s will struggle.

      St Vincent is like bourgogne in that it’s got speed and hitting power, its true that neither is a tanker of a ship, but bourgogne can tank as long as its 457mm or lower and angled, while St Vincent worries about anything over 358mm aka t6 and higher bb guns. I mean bourgogne overmatches St Vincent, St Vincent does not overmatch bourgogne.

      It’s a good ship and it’s different, maybe shares the flanking playstyle but it is by no measure a choice over bourgogne.

    • @Rasmus Dyhr Frederiksen more overpens

    • ​@Rasmus Dyhr Frederiksen bourgogne uses small 15 inchers while vinny has the big boy 17.99 inch guns, st. vincent’s pen is higher at all distances, while bourgogne might get more citadels in certain cases, i think vinny does overall more damage from getting full pens where bourgogne would bounce, shatter, or overpen.

    • Imgoingtomakeyoupoplikethat Oof

      No people will still play bourgongne she’s more meta than vincent and is a great he burner. The bow is 32 unlike St Vincents bow which is 26 and bourgongne is more meta for clan battles if there is double bbs

  6. Waverley Journalise

    Damn fires… Can’t wait until WG raise the citadel instead of simply *halving the fire chance* because balans

  7. Not gonna lie that Norton scared me for my own pc for a second there.

  8. Man ….now to slow grind up the line to use the econ booster I got for her

  9. I will keep Thunderer for long range and this one for short range.

  10. 09:16 about the Heal “it’s not quite as good as the Conqueror’s…” the Heal is SAME as Conqueror, 40% by default, 48% with flag, 52.8% with flag and captain skill, 58.1% with flag and captain skill and slot 5 module if youre crazy enough to use it

  11. Can you do an operations video with tips for the new ops ? I played for hours last night. They’re a lot of fun 🤩

  12. Get well soon, SLM.

    I hope one day to own this BC. As a disorganized FTP WoWS player, I’ve only made it to tier 8-9 in one line, over years of playing. I’m doing my best to get used to the battlecruiser mindset of flank, hit-and-run, support but don’t try & lead or get too far into the furball.

    IIRC, the huge I-3 battlecruisers were laid down, but quietly scrapped after the Washington Naval Treaty, since they weighed in at a minimum of 50,000 tons. The general I-3 designs went into the later “interesting” plans for the Nelson & Rodney battleships (38K tons displacement).

  13. Rasmus Dyhr Frederiksen

    I will probably take rudder shift instead of repair 2 module. But nice review. I have enjoyed the line so far, a lot.

  14. This ship has the potential to take out 4 ships in a close range brawl at once (if all the enemies aren’t full health)
    1. Torps x2
    2. Guns
    3. 40 knots ram
    Truly a scary ship to face

  15. My sympathies for the allergies, it’s the tree pollen in spring time that sends me into paroxysms of sneezing.

  16. Kinda wish he would do a review on the T5 DD Siroco. It was my first premium ship and holds a special place in my heart.

  17. Ahh yes, the most bizzare treaty ship design i’ve ever seen

  18. It triggers me to no end that they had you down to like 5 health and you just repaired in their faces like it was nothing. Genuinely would have lost my shit if I watched that happen in person.

  19. Confirmed … the torp launch sound has been glitched for a couple releases now. How did that pass testing???!!! WG will probably release 100 new premiums before it decides to “fix the glitch”.

  20. I like playing with 60s fires and faster rudder. With the extra heal skill even when you’re on 3 fires it’s no big deal, and furious can make it very powerful. I also take brisk for going even faster.
