    Will this be the future of world of warships as well?

    Your poll didn’t allow any option for “there’s no such thing as pay to win in WoWS” and “things are fine.”
  2. Being on an enemy controlled cap and stopping their point gain should be rewarded significantly.

    80 Mega Gift results (Santa was good to me)

    No Santa crates for me this year. Already have all the premiums I want, including most of the “unobtainable” ones. Plus a bunch of other premiums WG has given me over the years that i never play.

    Musashi: What could have been.

    Well, that's false. I paid about $45 to convert enough XP to buy her. You can play with semantics all you want, but the fact is a lot of people paid for her. Furthermore, you've completely failed to offer any evidence that Musashi is game-breakingly OP.

    Musashi: What could have been.

    Musashi is fine. I don't find her to be overpowered. She's almost entirely in Tier 10 games anyway. So really all you're getting is 90% of a Tier 10 occupying one of your team's Tier 9 slots. Not a game breaking advantage there, I actually find her campy playstyle to be quite boring, however. So she generally sits in port unused, for months at a time. As far as your contradictory point above. I see no evidence that Musashi is breaking the game in any way, I usually find her to be easily outflanked and disposed of by my Massachusetts, actually.

    Best looking ship in the game?

    I'm going to throw a vote out there for Alaska.

    PSA: West Virginia '41 is a monster!

    Yes... you’re playing a Tier 7 ship at Tier 6 with drawbacks that rarely come into play. That’s a bad premium? Lol

    Moskva vs Kronstadt vs Alaska

    My Kronstadt has been in mothballs almost since I got it. I’m going to circle back around and give it another chance at some point... but my initial experiences were not good.

    PSA: West Virginia '41 is a monster!

    I have, and I butchered it from well outside 11.3km. As a Massachusetts Main I know both sides of that battle really well. Of course, this was a Massachusetts B... so probably some clueless noob who didn’t know how to play her, as opposed to a specialist like myself. But bottom line, if you’re having to compare her to the best battleship of a Tier 2 tiers higher, it’s hard to make the argument that she sucks. Just sayin...

    PSA: West Virginia '41 is a monster!

    I have Mutsu also, and her guns are an order of magnitude less effective than WV's. But hey, don't like her. . . don't buy her. I debated even posting this and instead just letting her bad reputation remain, while I hoovered up damage with her. But I thought I'd be nice instead. But please, feel free to pass if she's not your thing. The fewer out there, the better as far as I'm concerned.

    PSA: West Virginia '41 is a monster!

    That's my point. LWM's review missed the mark I think. A lot of the drawbacks become irrelevant with smart play. She does suck against carriers. But honestly you don't see them much. When you do, half the time they don't target you. I get very few overpens. Lots of citadels and deleted cruisers.
  12. Uptiers well in Tier 8 games. Crushes Tier 6 opponents like insects! Includes a free "Delete Cruiser" button. In Tier 8 games you just have to remember you're not tough enough to tank. You're a fire support battleship, not a charge leader. That said, I had one game where a Bismarck thought he could sneak around an island and kill me. At a distance of 9km, I completely obliterated him and made him regret his life choices. Those 406s are NOT to be underestimated. Don't believe the anti-hype. This boat is fantastic when played well.

    Premium Ship Review #114 - West Virginia 1941

    Tried her one game so far. It was a Tier 8 game and I started in the wrong position. Still I was the last survivor and did about 62k damage. Not a huge amount... but not terrible for a Tier 6 that spent the first 8 minutes of the game missing at long and medium range against maneuvering CLs for lack of better targets. I think I’m going to like her. She needs a dedicated captain, (for me anyway) but I had a spare 19 pointer lying around since I have all 3 of the special US captains now. In any event, I had to buy her so that I would continue to own every American BB ever released. I definitely preferred her to recent AZ games.
