    Looks to be a very good premium. Just need to know if it's just RNG trolling Flamu or the guns are really specific in certain areas.

    @ofi123 I watched a bit of stream archives and it seems to be how the guns behave all the time, not just a one game thing.

    Even WG thinks the guns were a bit too accurate: her Sigma will be nerfed a bit.

    ST, Italian battleship Roma, tier VIII

    Sigma count is decreased from 1.9 to 1.8 to balance the ship better for her tier.

    @Keyan_TTK Still should be a nice overall package of a BB. Just amused this thing is stealthier than numerous Cruisers it will face. WG is introducing more and more BBs with Cruiser levels of concealment. Very soon there will be no place for Cruisers in this game.

    The meltdown on Reddit over the sigma nerf on Reddit was pretty hilarious to be honest. It's like all of her other strengths suddenly stopped mattering because of that 0.1 nerf.

    The devs even made a post emphasizing that particular point.

    ST, Italian battleship Roma, tier VIII

    We have received a lot of feedback regarding Sigma count of the Roma battleship.

    Value of 1.9 showed slightly increased combat efficiency of the ship in the hands of strongest players. 1.8 is the normal value for tier VIII battleships and it will allow Roma take an appropriate place in the balance hierarchy, considering all of her advantages.

    Some of them are: high maximum speed and great overall maneuverability, fast turret traverse, good concealment, solid anti-torpedo defense (40% damage reduction) and hefty horizontal plating. In battles you will be seriously damaging the enemy cruisers and battleships with armor-piercing shells while avoiding many of their retaliatory salvos, even torpedoes. If the torpedoes do manage to hit your ship, the damage won't be as high. Moreover, thanks to Roma's low hull and superstructure height, her concealment capabilities will allow you to strike first in a firefight and do it from the most comfortable distance before being detected.

    We would also like to emphasize that ship stats do change during the testing period, and that is done to allow for the best possible balance, when the ships are officially launched.
    North Carolina does have a 2.0 Sigma however with comparable detection range and better overmatch and penetration, but still, Roma looks like a very good package indeed. If she's a T8 Cesare, I'll buy in a heartbeat.

    @Keyan_TTK NC has worse shell arcs, is not as tanky and has unrealisticly trash TDS though. NC is also slower than Roma.

    Honestly, it's still going to be very good T8 ship, and the freakout around that 0.1 nerf is quite embarassing. Props to WG for addressing the community's concern though.

    From what I've seen, her only real issues will be weakness against AP DBs and lack of range when playing in T10 games. Other than that she seems great to me.

    They shouldn't have needed to quell any outrage to being with. This kind of uproar is ridiculous.

    The sigma nerf is inconsequential considering how well balanced outside of AA Roma is. Those idiots crying about the nerf don't see the whole picture of the ship. FFS, she is stealthier than a number of my stealth build Cruisers that will face her.

    Again, the ship is well rounded and looks to be a PHD-enhanced version of Caesar at Tier V. Caesar's gunplay isn't actually all that but her mobility, stealth lets her get away with a lot and she has for her tier, HORRID armor. And she's breaking the game despite the mediocre range and terrible protection. Roma for her tier is far better protected and the rest is fitting improvement.

    Hell, even her AA is overbuffed like crazy. Her 90mm have better stats than Montana's and Henry IV's 127mm guns, it's absolutely absurd.
