    Another shitty premium IJN BB balanced by forcibly downtiering it.

    Hey WG?

    Most things with Ashitaka are fairly balanced with Nagato with decent concessions that I was fine with. Nagato is better at some things, Ashitaka at others. But the bad thing is the protection. The armor, specifically the belt, is super bad. Fuso has superior armor. For anyone that's played IJN BBs, that kind of protection at Tier VII should be alarming.

    The ship is literally, "What do you get if you upgun Fuso and throw it in at Tier VII?"

    Balanced doesn't mean we need it.

    I want interesting top of the line IJN BBs.

    Not the un-modernised versions which are an attempt to bring already existing playstyles to a lower tier.

    @DLRevan And if I remember right, Amagi's A hull has really terrible armor. Like, "can be be citadel'd reliably by cruiser" kind of bad.
    Not sure why WG expect people to pay money for that. You'd think Mutsu being a flop would've been a good indicator that people don't want this, but I guess they really want to get their money from modeling these hulls back.

    Also, it seems like overmatchable citadel is now WG's new fetish (Kii has the same problem):

    WG felt the urge to make this ship live up to its name! Seriously, it's called Ashitaka, what didya expect?

    Newer players never underwent the old Stock Amagi. Now they get a chance to pay for that experience :o

    Hell, they didn't even give her Type 91 shells.

    Uh, Kii may have a 22mm citadel deck, but at least there's a 95mm thick deck above it.

    So right after Huang Bleh, Ashitaka comes in the Premium Store. Here is LWM's review (who seems to be having a busy week)
