Meet the Yamato, tier 10 Japanese battleship with Glorious Nippon Steel armour and Lolpen 460mm guns. Such power, much wow. Get her and forever have the biggest guns on World of Warships! Enjoy the review 😛
It’s pronounced Yah-mah-toe
I thought it was Yamato sister ship that took 300 plus aircraft to take them out
So Yamato OP, go figure.
They gota nerd fire!! Yamato is like a BBQ party house
They should have made 5 of them.
wait arent the firing arcs really high on Yamato?
Hello Chase. Thanks for the video. I am currently at the Izumo, hull B. Any tips on how to play it? Not a bad ship, but I think it can do much more
WG pls had the H44 german BB with 500 mm guns xD
First they make it OP then, when there’s too much Yamatos (like they want), they will “nerf kill it” with some crap excuse so that you spend more money grinding to other ships. WG loves to do that and they already did it with several ships. That’s why they had like 600M profit last year. That’s also why they end up destroying their own games. The greed is real… maybe 1 billion is not enough for Victor.
still think its retarded that the yamato is so much better than montana cuz in real live the iowa class whas better and the montana is an upgrade
low pen machine hahaha WTF? wait,how or why do you have 19 capitain skills? the max is 18.
I don’t understand why they make the yamato so good. The Japanese tree is so much better then the American. Us get the Colorado and Montana and Japanese get the yamato. The Montana and Colorado clearly need a buff.
You sounded really exciting the whole time, chase, nice review. BUT I don’t aggree with the module for concealment and I tell you why. Not because I don’ find it useful to appear in medium range…who wouldn’t find that usefull? But becazse you won’t use that as often as you could make use of spotting topedoes fast enough. The Yamato is huge, so everyone will shot it, especially cruiser who will set in on fire, all the time. Fire increases spotting distance. On top of it, destroyers love to shot Yamatos because they are big and slow and some use fancy modules like less fire time, so they dont have a better rudder and cannot outturn the torps…so torps will hit more often and a dd will always stay in range. So the Yamato will be permaspotted by either destroyers or because it is set on fire. Use spotting module, it makes life easier than rare surprise situations.
Yamato’s and US 16 inch have the same armor penitration
From what I saw in the public test upcoming patches may well do away with much of the distinction between primary & secondary battery builds.
Well if Yamato is going to keep the biggest main battery, that limits Germany to H39 and H41…which means German BB players are going to leave. The best they can get is 8 x 16.5″ guns so they can’t even compete with a friggin North Carolina or Iowa, never mind Montana or this OP thing.
Only good thing about the German BBs is their torpedoes which are pointless with the secondary loadout of Yamato. Sorry, but having a death star like this just ruins it for everyone else.
Just got my Izumo now so the grind is on.
Well…She’s a Beauty….realy want to have Sex with her…..ähm….
iChase great video! 🙂 Can you please make a video with a comparison between the automatic and manual secondaries?
The Musashi took about twice as much damage.
Do I hear some troll-tone in your voice?… 🙂 I think I do 🙂 WG is doing with US battleships the same thing that they did to German tanks in World of Tanks: they. have. to. suck. just. because. 😀 Yamato is not really balanced… And it’s not because WG likes Nippon Steel, it’s because they don’t seem to like US Steel :D
This is indeed a great BB. I do not have one has I am a DD guy. However I have to say a division of Yamato breaks apart MM in this game. I am seeing more of them and WG has not been able to deal with it. The HP pool coming with the division is ridiculous and if they join up and move together while focus firing….. the secondary joining up is fearless to anything. Add to that MM usually put on the on the team 1 or 2 Montanas at most and the game is over before it even begun unless the division is careless. Great boat !
yesterday ich killed auch Yamato with 6 cidadels with my tirpitz
PATHETIC SCRUB KILLER YAMATO!
By the way, i forgot to ask, in the yamato vs yamato brawl clip, where did he aim to get front citadel? The underbelly section? Or at least its what it looks like
Hi iChase! Do you have plans to do a review on Izumo, probably the most frustrating ship to sail?
Soooooo when is the stream
Its a good coincidence you got this yamato review because i just bought that ship a few days ago and at the same time, i almost finished my credit grind for the montana as well. I havent decided yet wether i will take full concealement or a mix of concealement and secondary built once i unlock the tier 5 skill, i would say that the biggest threat to yamato more than other battleships are multiple small ships like even lower tier cruisers that rapid fire he shell especially considering its slow turret traverse speed. And i think montana tend to fare better against multiple smaller ship du to its faster turret speed and number of turret, but i am not sure yet since i havent tried the montana yet
and wargamming try to make the god of battleships weaker by buffing only the US high teir battleships I think the Yamato needs to have a bit better AA IMOP
Fully stealth build Yamato 13 km detection range, meanwhile Pensacola’s detection range 15 km
So the real question we want answered.
Now that you have played with the yamato… How do you beat it?
Ah yes, because shooting HE for low but consistent damage plus fires against an angled Yamato (which is nearly impervious to AP shells with a caliber below 457.6) is for pathetic scrubs who secretely just want to steer a Yamato … really iChase?
It’s not like that is actually a sound tactical decision if you actually intend to do some damage against a player who probably isn’t stupid enough to show a nice flat broadside for any non-Yamato to penetrate at their leisure.
I’m sure you meant that as a lighthearted joke only, but boy did it come across as conceited.
I don’t know…I either have super bad luck with my Yama over the last one or two months or they stealth nerfed her. The accuracy is so bad now and cit pens are often absurdly few and far between with whole salvos with 3-5 hits doing hardly any damage at all or just bounce even from cruisers…
Compared with the Zao the Yama is just not very good, IMHO at least not for someone that is hated by RNGesus as I’am and I have <5% fire chance with my Zao.
It’s funny every time an American shout’s “bias” just because Montana isn’t the best BB dueler in the game. Then Americans saying it should have better pen than Yamato, better armor than Yamato, better speed than Yamato. The real design of Montana is it has the same mark 7 guns of Iowa with an added turret at the aft and armor and speed near identical to Yamato. Yamato’s type 94 gun AP shells still had more muzzle velocity and mass than Mark 8 APC shells and would still have better penetration.
The nubs simply can’t appreciate the Montana’s rapid 12 guns knack for wiping out the other team’s cruisers and destroyers. No, America’s Montana gotta have it all, best cruiser and DD cleaner and best BB dueler for the game to be balanced. I mean seriously you have to give Montana’s already OP rapid firing 16″ guns pin point accuracy and pen that can pierce a mountain but never over-pen for them to be happy.
ichase do you think the upcoming kriegsmarine brawler bbs will be a possible counter to the yamato? would explain the lack of balancing from the wargaming team :p
In the 25th episode of Space Battleship Yamato 2199 the Yamato also lolpens the Gamillian spaceship that was bow on. BOW ON ALIEN ARMOUR DUDE
Uchuu senkan YA MA TO
The Montana definately can pen an angled yamato, not all the time but Ive rolled countless citidels against Yamato. I dont really agree with you saying that the Montana is completely outclassed. Sure its alpha damage is not as high per shot but it has 12 main guns…… and aside from that you can still shoot all four turrets at a steep angle and then just go bow in between salvos.
Stream will be on after 2 hours
when can we expect a Zao review, Chase?
I did kill a Yamato with my Amagi at close range, did get 5 citadels in one salvo and she sunk :)
Fire prevention skill? Bleh. Useless. % of a % is nothing.
This massive cock boat that was over glorified by anime. Turned to god by WG. Would have been rofl stomped by the Iowa. People need to get real with the yamato class. Size means nothing.
what is “Lolpen Machine” mean ?? Google can’t answer me *(rarely (๑˙ー˙๑) no result)
For some reason you made me laugh so much in this video, especially in the beginning :P… Great video as always :)
Should review Amagi people say it’s op (I have Amagi 🙂 but it costs to much to repair
am I the only one who thinks this ship is SLIGHTLY OP?
Will the h44 ever come out with its 510mm?
I have Amagi so far, still sort of like the Nagato better surprisingly – because I hated the Nagato for the first half of the grind thinking I needed speed. Amagi is fun, but really want a real battleship instead of battlecruiser.
can u do a colorado review
Meanwhile we still wait for the US super heavy firing shells which had the same pen as the Yamato…
why wouldn’t you just wait until 5.7 hits for any new videos, you KNOW that modules are being changed. lol
iChase, do you think this ship need to be nerfed ?
The Yamato’s firepower is just…just…wow. An Atlanta’s worth of secondaries on each side, an Aoba’s worth of secondaries on the centerline and main guns big enough to cause a tsunami when they fire. I dread coming up against this glorious monster when I unlock my NC. 0_0
Incidentally, will the German and British tier X BBs try to match match her or simply settle for matching the Montana? I can’t wait to find out. ^_^
“use armor piercing all the time” what if you need to shoot a destroyer? I understand that if you have ap loaded and a destroyer pops up it would be useless to take the time to switch ammo, but lets say the only ships left than you have line of fire on are destroyers. Do you really want to keep loading ap?
best thing in na server no matter how much dmg you do still lose
Can’t wait for the Sovetsky-Soyuz! :D
so, is wargaming confirming through that statement at the end that they won’t be adding the 18 inch H class german bbs?
need some balances though even when angled yamato can still pen easily :v montana angled still eats about 10k lol balance pls
Yamato is nowhere near as good as it once was. The super heal is gone. The rudder is gone. The flooding bonus is gone. It’s easy to hit with HE, and won’t be dodging anytime soon. It’s good and all, but a Zao or a Moskva is much better.
IchaseGaming, if you could cut down on the 12+ min intro’s tht would be awesome. otherwise good videos! very enjoyable to watch generally !
Glad my video could be of use to you +iChaseGaming!
ichase stop calling this yamato, it’s the death star! besides it shoots total lasers and one shots everything…
Oh Joy. Keep them coming.
you’re almost at 45k yay!!
Those dislikes are Montana captains
irl yamato had an even better turning circle lol
the only pain being grinding the absolutely useless izumo which is an ugly floating coffin. and ur reward is sitting up the back defending cap forever
Montana actually has better armor. Harder to pen.
I see a USS Smith in port! First time hearing about it! JK I saw it on wikia 3 months ago.
would u recommend sniping at long range so u can avoid 300k repair bills?
Musashi had been struck by a total of 19 torpedoes and 17 bombs, while Yamato was hit by at least eleven torpedoes and six bombs. There may have been two more torpedo and bomb hits, but this is not confirmed.
this was the fact that USN attack Yamato from one side with torpedoes and cause excessive flooding from one side
You really should have addressed the god awful gun turn time :P
Love your comment at the end according to wargaming the Yamato will forever have the biggest guns… well no shit considering they were the biggest guns ever mounted on a battleship.
iChase, the longer the ship the bigger the turning circle, but a faster ship
Warspite turrent time!!!
Technically, planes are the biggest guns in warship weaponary
Been watching the anime called Haifui where in the latest episode, modern warships faced the Musashi. Of course, the Musashi’s guns wrecked face when the modern ships got too close. Love the show and can’t wait for the final episode. Love your videos Chases. Can’t wait to get my own Yamato, currently on the Nagato.
ur mom was historically useless
The range of the secondaries on all of the IJN battleships in the game are complete BS.
The Yamato needs a major nerf…
Ahhhh, but Comrade Chase, wait until we have Glorious Tier 10 Russian BB! If dastardly imperialist Japanese BB dares to outperform the pride of the Motherland, then good loyal players on RU server will storm WG with cries of “patriotism!”, and this lolpen machine will be beaten into submission with a nerf bat made of Stalinium!
Seriously, this is supposed to be a competitive PvP online MMO, and you’ve got a boss ship straight out of an 80’s single player arcade game?
Give us the Iowa-class with 18 inch guns!
Just wondering but do you like the Nicolas and how do you play it? Anyway thanks!
Great vid Chase!!! Can’t wait till I get my Yamato!!
Is the Gremyashchy really so OP that WG can`t put it on sale anymore? I regret having bought the Sims. :(
since they have the Montana witch is a paper ship at tier 10 then they could remove the Izumo, kick the Yamato to tier 9 and then ad the A-150 (Super Yamato) class at tier 10 :P
lol i chase remember back in alpha when i was told by reb to watch out for that atlanta when i was in yammy… im like what atlanta….WHAM ship sunk ribbon appears…and im flooding a bit..i look port and see a the bow and starboard and i see the sinking stern…and u guys are like “that atlanta”
Kinda surprised that war gaming does not offer a Wave Motion Gun option. ?
Yamato takes 600 damages per tick while on fire. If you see a Yammy BOW ON, rain HEs and burn it down! As a Yammy capt myself, fires have killed me more time than AP or torps
Iowa next plz chase
Wow, after this review, i get a itch to play her again. It sounds like you can actully do stuff in Yamato. I know TIR 10 battles and in BBs are complete waste of time, but i can dream right.
Today is my birthday, WarGamming should give me a Yamato.
I have her and I love it. Now I’m going after the zao as a complement.
Can you do a mixed build or is that completely stupid like a mix between main battery and secondaries
+iChaseGaming sooo sense there not CVs anymore Yamato has no weakness and is unstoppable now ? XD
26 second reload really ?
Ah, The Bullshit Boat. It should really be reeled in. I’m thinking higher detectability (so you can at least see it way before and turn on those wasd hacks) and longer reload cycle. But ofc WG wont disappoint the weeaboos.
I got the many:) I’m not very good with her yet though prefer the play style of amagi and fuso
Ah Yamato, pinnacle and champion of WG bias!
actually i really dont fear the yamato thanks to my speed demon destroyer
had one. sold it… bought it again…. got tired of dodging torpedo walls… sold it again. I prefer cruisers and DDs anyway. good video Chase
Those secondaries made it look like a battle between pirates.
Is it normal for a Yamato to one-shot a full HP New Orleans that is completely bow in, cuz thats exactly what happened xD. i bounced 3 salvos (dont ask how, im lucky), then BAM citadels for 35k damage :(
Yamato should actually have multiple hulls in this game. I find it funny that Izumo that was never built has multiple hulls The A hull would have been Yamato as historically completed in late 1941. She would have had 2 triple 155 mm turrets on either side of the ship. But would have carried half the number of 127 mm gun turrets and far less 25mm AA
Her anti ship secondary ability would have been slightly more potent in her A hull configuration with the extra Mogami turrets but her AA ability would have been significantly reduced. She only had a handful of 25mm AA guns as completed.
Her B hull would be Yamato’s configuration during the Battle of Leyte in late 1944 which swapped the Mogami wing turrets for an 6 extra twin 127 mm guns. She still carried less 25mm AA guns at this point.
Her C hull would be the Yamato in operation Ten-Go in 1945 or the Yamato featured in this game with lots and lots of 25mm AA guns.
I hate the yamato I had to sell it as you could do fuck all and never survive a battle as all the noobs only shoot HE at you taking secondaries and anti-aircraft
I laughed way too much watching this.
The whole concealment and acquisition captain skill tree is useless on a battleship (the concealment module as well). You need the repair skills: High Alert and Superintendent for maximum chance of survivability (you are a tank after all) and you need to upgrade the AA and the secondaries..
In real life the Yamato had a circle turning radius of 650m :)
Only truly working Battleship in WoWs that doesn’t get trolled by retarded mechnaics of penetration =)
I think that skill on the fourth row is also viable. The one that increases AA when you manually target an enemy.
iChase, iChase, did you see the new German BB leaks from a Chinese website? The Scharnhorst and two tier 3-4 ships were leaked with specs..
How do you tell if a shot is an overpenetration ?
uchuu senkan YAMATO!!!
Thank you for the review. Just wish the April Fools’ Yamato 2199 model and space effects were an option.
Terrible AA so why not put a module for AA and the captain skill :)
i think chase is getting better at his vids love u chase and ur vids :)
This whole video is just showing how overpowered the yamato is. And it is that way cause the way wargamming doesnt understand balance. Or history. The 18.1inch guns where just barely and by barely i mean barely better and penning armor as the 16in 50s that the iowa had. but since it had a rep as being the biggest and baddest it has to be overpowered. they might as well made another ship the t10 and made yamato a premium. Cause you know premiums are totally balanced yet that is all you ever see at the higher teirs
Broken boat, I don’t want something that takes much of the skill out of the game and resorts to you just shotgunning an area and nuking everything there.
