The British (Battleships) are Coming!



New lines bring new twists to ship classes, and British battleships are no different! They’re all about medium-range fights and have a few tricks up their sleeve:
  • A "Repair Party" consumable that restores more HP after receiving damage, or suffering from fire and flooding, than other battleships’ Repair Parties. Only the Premium battleship Warspite has an equally effective Repair Party
  • HE shells with an increased penetration rate – great for pushing the assault or firing from a distance while repairing
  • Good armor on Tier III–VI ships. They’re mighty British dreadnoughts and superdreadnoughts with hefty armor, especially the bow armor belt
  • Concealment on Tier VII–X ships. The armored approach from lower tiers is set aside in favor of high-tier cunning and stealthy playstyles. Good concealment compensates for armor vulnerabilities and allows for stealthier battle tactics than other battleship lines
The last two points make for different play styles between low-tier and high-tier British battleships. At lower tiers, things are simple: force your way through and soak up bow damage. The improved Repair Party, solid bow armor, and penetrating HE shells are key to pulling this off. Don’t expose the broadsides and keep in mind that decent AA guns don’t kick in until tier V or higher.

At higher tiers, things get more varied: You’ve got unusually good concealment for a battleship, which is needed to succeed. Move in on your target unnoticed, sling some shells from medium range, take a bit of damage, pull back, use Repair Party, and rinse and repeat. If you want to avoid the brawl, you can use your HE shells from a distance, but the ballistics will take some getting used to.
