Playing the SC I can't help but wonder if I should file a bug report. Hard to imagine the dispersion is intentionally this big on purpose.

Is it just me or have BBs almost vanished from the game? When grinding up the USN CA line at low to mid tiers it was like 1/2-1/3 of queued ships were BBs. Jump in the Cleveland for a few days and it's almost no BBs. Jump back to low tiers in the SC and I've been either the lone BB or one of 2 in most games.
Did the terrible balancing of low tier BBs drive everyone away from them?

On EU the queue is still full of BBs and cruisers (ca. 1:1); there are by now fewer CVs than DDs in the queue. BBs are on all tiers so people are progressing. At low tiers... Best bet if you get thrown into higher tier game is to stick to some higher ttier battleship (you should be able to keep up with Wyoming), when upgraded they have quite good AA. And while you are slow, you usually have relatively tight turning circle - get the rudder to full in time and torpedo bombers screw up. And specifically Kawachi is quite good brawler - the wing turrets allow you to quickly switch targets.
Freezes every few seconds sounds like packet loss - might not show on the ping counter, but does the red light show on the indicator?

The low Tier BB's [SC, Kawashi] are horrible, fat, slow, incredibly inaccurate, pieces of crap.
And frustrating. Don't forget the frustrating part.
I upgraded the SC when I got it in the hopes it works better. Not much!
I'm still 3000+ XP from researching the next BB to it *sniff* Kawachi, OTOH, is still far far from the next BB huhuhuhu.... It's so frustrating to play these ships

Did I mention that I had a turning, up-close battle using the Kawachi in the Coop mode?
It was fun!
I fought off three low-tier (I and II) cruisers. The bots got too close and went to a turning fight with the Kawachi. It's the first time that the BB's secondary armament came into play, and the fight found my Kawachi victorious, with 2 cruisers dead, and a third significantly damaged that was finished off by other team members. One of the team members sent a chat: "lol gud job in surviving"
I have the game set at max settings. I wonder if this has an effect in lag or something like that with the game. Considering the piss poor net connection here at Lalaland, the net is really to blame with the lag issues. But I wonder if reducing the settings to more manageable ones will improve gameplay. Not that I'm complaining much, although there are times ships disappear every now and then which ruins my aiming. And these ships are sometimes quite close.
I think I'll stick to Coop mode for SoCar and Kawachi, racking up XP and credits until I get to buy the next BBs and sell these frustrating BBs hehehehe
I so want a New Mexico 'coz she's so purtee....

I dunno. I have WoWS running the lowest possible settings and still unplayable. Whereas WoT runs just fine with no issues on the same machine. apparently I am not alone.
The lag and stuttering sound in World of Warships started shortly after the Battleship addition a few weeks ago. Since then, the game has become nearly unplayable by many. It is this issue that discourages players like myself who will go elsewhere for entertainment. Sure, it was a good game prior to the 0.4 patch. But I don’t want to waste my time losing because of rubber-banding graphics or listening to severely distorted sound.

The Mygoi BB is handicapped by her 3 turrets and slow aiming speed.
Best thing you can do with sucker is to run away, blasting with rear two turret. Other than that...
You can't even do that in that PoS. I had a game where a DD was coming at me so I did the smart thing and turned away, showing my rear two turrets, and ran from him. Given how horrible low tier BB dispersion is all my shots on him missed since he was showing his frontal profile. Given his speed advantage he slowly closed on me and since secondaries are also a joke he got to within 2km, released torps, and killed me.
There was absolutely nothing else I could do in that situation. It's a terrible ship and low tier BBs, in general, need serious love before this game 'launches'.

As I signed in today it did an update. And the posts on the sign in page linked to talk about it. And that talked mentioned changes to the Mikasa? Where is this at? That special area us common slugs aren't allowed in? I really really really wish they had broke this game down my era. So many many fun ships will never be in it.
