She's designed as a sniper, which is why she has a large salvo weight, good verticle dispersion, and incredible ballistics. She can't be good at EVERYthing...

The reload rate is slow compared to other T7 BB's because her salvo weight is enormous. You can use this fun website to quickly compare ships and their characteristics: https://shiptool.st/


Then also check the shell ballistics for that big AP salvo...

You can see that California has a combination of several factors - 2nd highest AP salvo weight, accuracy, range, and ballistics, that all make her an excellent sniper. The tradeoff is that she is slow and that she has a long reload. The reload is slightly worse than Florida and Sinop, though her shells are heavier than Florida's and there is no comparing range/accuracy to Sinop.

If you're not a fan of the heavy-broadside / Sniper style that the American "Standard" Battleships bring, you might enjoy Gneisnau, Prinz Heinrich, or Renown'44 as they are much better suited to close-quarter slugfests.
